the fact that you can just go kill the main boss in a half an hour is really cool, you play rest of the game because you want to

I tried going straight from the Great Plateau to Ganon on a recent playthrough and got my butt whooped

Oh, I just meant that the size and detail of Hyrule Castle-- which was especially "concentrated with content" compared to the rest of a rather breezy and spacious game-- felt like such a true "final level" and also a satisfying culmination of decades of versions of the place. The closest analog I can think of design-wise is the palace in Ico

New Donk City was fine, it felt like GTA in a snowglobe with Gap commercial big band accompaniment

the level itself is middle-of-the-pack for odyssey (wooded and luncheon are kings of kingdoms) but the Gap Band is on fire imo

the botw hyrule castle theme is also one of the great pieces of zelda music, i believe, and that's a rarified list

if Odyssey were soundtracked by the Gap Band it would have won my vote

i like new donk more than luncheon but agree that wooded kingdom is the best in that game

ciderpress, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 20:38 (three years ago) link

in large part because its the one that feels most like a 64 level

I really enjoyed Bowser's Kingdom in Odyssey

It is interesting to me that I have only vague recollections of Snow Kingdom and Lost Kingdom, i.e., especially compared to pretty-much everywhere in BOTW. I remember every labyrinth and beach from BOTW, the only unmemorable part of that game was that weird beachside town where it felt kinda un-adventurous.

I'm a big Galaxy 1/2 stan and idk Odyssey's levels were just so un-inventive... they felt like throwbacks to 64 but without the magic of 64

idk I definitely had a moment where I tripped over a moon on the.. moon, and said ffs these moons are basically Yugoslavian dinars

BOTW is the better complete package, but Odyssey has better individual moments. Especially when you possess Bowser in the finale and it plays that sick power-pop song

ciderpress, Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:05 (three years ago) link

this thread is starting to feel unwelcoming and in fact even unsafe for mario and mario fans, mods

lag∞n, Thursday, 1 April 2021 14:09 (three years ago) link

Fear not! On the third day, Mario will rise again in glory

you publicly predicted a resurrection but were 1 day off. everybody is focusing on how you were 1 day off. nobody congratulates you for calling the resurrection!

Oh wow yeah I forgot about the final boss fight in Odyssey, that was amazing. Prob my favourite Bowser since Yoshi's Island

the bowser escape song gives me "kids in america" vibes, not the kim wilde version but the muffs' version that was in clueless
