i'm a few hours into this now and it's predictably fun though certainly not a reinvention of mario like what they did with zelda

people talked up how this would be the long-awaited proper follow-up to mario 64 or whatever but really it pulls equally from all the past 3d marios - it's got some of the freeform exploration of 64, some of the setpieces and miniaturized challenge areas of galaxy, and some of the gimmickry and mission-style objectives of sunshine

ciderpress, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:20 (three years ago) link

also i love the music in the wooded kingdom, i have no idea how they got from 'woods level' to that but it owns

ciderpress, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:22 (three years ago) link

one of the things that makes 64 the best imo is its physics, how its possible to move super fast and violently through it, which is why its a speedruners fav

lag∞n, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:25 (three years ago) link

cider otm, but the hat flicking and "capture" is so enjoyable and quite new? (i did not play sunshine)

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 27 October 2017 18:27 (three years ago) link

yeah its definitely more enjoyable than the sunshine water gun but it reminds me of it all the same

ciderpress, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:29 (three years ago) link

xp this one's definitely closer to galaxy in physics than 64, i've never seen sm64's physics "feel" replicated in any other game, by nintendo or not

ciderpress, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:31 (three years ago) link

they shd try to

lag∞n, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:32 (three years ago) link

i def remember running out of water guns in a childhood water fight and saying to a would be participant "hey, why don't you just get a hat and flick it at people maybe?" and then the would be participant kicking my ass

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 27 October 2017 18:33 (three years ago) link

it's kind of refreshing how little they care about making the moons all big deals to get like the shines/stars in sunshine/galaxy. some of them require navigating a tricky platforming room or beating a boss like in those games but others you can just wander into a barely hidden room or behind a corner or whatever

ciderpress, Friday, 27 October 2017 18:39 (three years ago) link

yeah, and they don't break the flow

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 27 October 2017 18:44 (three years ago) link

this is better than mario 64. i don't understand how anyone could play this and then pine for mario 64.

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 27 October 2017 18:44 (three years ago) link

for sure, its just not as much in the lineage of it as people were claiming

lol i have reached a place that was...not shown in any of the previews and is an extremely weird sight for a mario game

i want this game (and therefore a switch) but i also want several hundred bucks and some free time, honestly not sure which way to go

stupidly restarted zelda two nights ago and just really connected, guess it's mario time anyway!

This game is good, I feel like I'm breezing through it though! But there'll be lots to go back to even after I beat Bowser, if I want to.

whenever you possess something the sudden downgrade in precision of control, the different mode in which these entities exist in the world and different depth of fidelity, is jarring. not necessarily un-fun. but i feel like there's two games at odds with one another, one in which the appeal is that you have this avatar of subtle control and weight and another in which the appeal is MOOO HAAA HAA IM A FUCKEN TYRANNOSAUR

and i think these actively work against each other, at least for me, i am not taken by the novelty of having to switch forms when it means that switching forms is a sudden shift of gears to jankiness. i mean, it's not like it's a bad game. it's like, at least 50% better than shiny entertainment's messiah

capture controls don't bug me too much. the captured seem to have a single desirable ability. the shades guy felt like a joke about this. capturing makes the a mario-kirby hybrid in the end, which is cool. hey wtf are these bunnies, though?

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 29 October 2017 03:57 (three years ago) link

i found a few of the captures fun esp the woodpeckers in the bowser level but agree that most of them are a big downgrade from just being mario

ciderpress, Sunday, 29 October 2017 04:00 (three years ago) link

but you are still mario. you are just possessing each of these creatures and using its one ability to do something mario cannot do on his own.

sleepingbag, Monday, 30 October 2017 08:06 (three years ago) link

like overall it's pretty good, but a) they put a bunch of unfun, typical platformer shit in here, and b) it's v goofy and clearly designed for very little kids and I'm like 30 playing this shit

Of course it's better than Mario 64.

Mario has never controlled better. No third person character has ever controlled better.

What does "unfun, typical platformer shit" mean? xp

abcfsk, Monday, 30 October 2017 08:27 (three years ago) link

It's not a revolution like BOTW, but it expands the ways in which a 3D Mario can operate, without losing the platforming part. Most 3d 'platformers' originating in the 32 bit era are not about platforming but about mucking about looking for shit. This is still about platforming, but allows for a looser structure, more exploration and more freeform platforming than before. Despite the more open nature of the worlds the game has never felt tighter or better paced.

jump, throw the cap, z button to start the dive, then hold down jump until you jump off the cap, and thats it

you can also jump after rather than before the throw, and you can do all diff jumps the pound jump and so forth to start it, and once you jump off the cap you can do another dive or whatever, you go a lil further/higher if you throw the cap a second time then dive

lag∞n, Friday, 13 November 2020 17:06 (five months ago) link

maybe the slickest combo is throwing the cap, rolling into it which does this jump that pops you up pretty high, then do a cap jump

lag∞n, Friday, 13 November 2020 17:10 (five months ago) link

I assume Mario yells out something extremely pleasing when you do that last move
