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 (eleven months ago) Permalink

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 (eleven months ago) Permalink

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

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 (eleven months ago) Permalink

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

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

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?

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 (eleven months ago) Permalink

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.

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 (eleven months ago) Permalink

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.

i beat the final final world. the last gauntlet is quite tough! you have to make it through a bunch of sections all in one life. still have a handful of moons to get in the Mushroom Kingdom and i'm still missing purple coins/souvenirs/stickers in from half the others.

that "Jump Up, Super Star" song has become my number one earworm of 2018. the song just keeps popping into my head. anyone notice the fast 8-bit Woody The Woodypecker jingle in there? wonder what the deal is with that...

playing Princess on level 4-1 of Super Mario Bros. 2 is forever burned into my brain. sliding across the ice and under buzzards w that hover skill.

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 3 July 2018 22:42 (three months ago) Permalink

i played some of this drunk late last night and it was so wonderful. New Donk City is a huge joy to get around. you can roll your way across town, drive the moped, bounce on taxis/people/window overhangs, turn yourself into electricity and scale buildings that way, triple-jump leap from building to building like Spiderman, etc.

all completely seamless and in a level that uses somewhat holographic or fractal level design. the area as a whole is designed for the "main" game story mission, side areas are plentiful, often including off-shoots of their own. these mini levels are holistically integrated into the environment. it is cool replaying the game after finding all the moons and side areas and realizing how much stuff is accessible right at the start, how all the pipes have a secret 2nd moon in them that usually has a fun acrobatic challenge to it.

it does feel like the natural evolution of the open worlds of say Super Mario Bros. 3, where you had the one-room Toad levels that were just a treasure chest w an item in it or whatever.

btw holy shit this game looks incredible. it really feels like an HD cartoon world. i know technically GTA still trounces it but i don't care, the art design is, as always w Nintendo, wonderful. it really looks like a 3D CGI cartoon at parts. the camera is quite helpful when needed and otherwise generally stays out of the way and lets the avatar loom large in his adventures on the screen. needless to say im beyond excited to see what they do next.

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 16:41 (three months ago) Permalink

i've been replaying too. as much as this game felt derivative the first time through, it gets more enjoyable every time just being in the levels. i'll probably play this through more times than sm64.

so cool the robots were a direct reference to Silent Running. also i loved this answer to the realistic humans controversy and the question "Is Mario a human?"

In an interview with Vice, the game's director Kenta Motorkura confirmed that Mario is human saying "Mario is human (...) in the world, there are many different types of people, you know."
