Mario Chat / 1996 Super Mario 64 interview
« on: September 23, 2016, 08:20:07 AM »

Some highlights:
  • Mario is from Brooklyn
  • Miyamoto and Tezuka regret not adding more animal abuse
  • Luigi was removed rather late in development
  • The "trip" move (crouch -> B) is useless
  • Miyamoto expounds a bit on Mario and Zelda actually being the same series

I've ordered myself a second one of these:

One of these just popped up on Amazon for $30 in Used Very Good condition while I was in the bathroom, and I bought it. Hope it works, because it was the only listing, and I can't find it or any other actual six-face-button dual analog controller anywhere else online other than a pre-S-Type original Xbox controller (the S put the black and white buttons in a weird place that would defeat the purpose of using it for N64 and Sega emulation).

(I thought I found one for $10 that looked just like a tiny little Dualshock with 6 face buttons, but the sticks are actually just duplicates of the D-pad and first four face buttons, and there's no Start and Select buttons, so effectively it's just the pre-analog PS1 controller. No one makes controllers like this anywhere as far as I can tell, which is weird because the fact that someone made that $10 one that tricks you into thinking it's one definitely shows there's a demand for it.)

Color Splash opens with Mario getting a letter that's actually a folded-up paint-drained Toad, which motivates him to go check out the island. Maybe Mario still gets requests for help from non-Toad species but he's gotten xenophobic in his old age.

Wahoo! Make the Mushroom Kingdom great again! Build a wall and make Queen Bean pay for it!

It's weird how I wanted Koopalings to come back so bad 10-15 years ago and now they're just Nintendo's symbol for "yeah we still don't feel like coming up with any real bosses."

- In the third mode, you can create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected by playing the first two game modes.
This kinda sounds like it could be a level editor, but I'm gonna assume it's not so I'm not disappointed. I'm thinking it's just going to be like you have a little room that you can buy furniture for.

Iunno, it seems fun. Hope the Android version comes out before all the iPhone people stop playing it.

Video Game Chat / Re: New Wii U details - launch date, price, and more!

Consumers definitely have a responsibility to research what they're buying, but it really behooves companies to make things less obtuse, because once you get into trying to explain what a New 3DS is, a lot of people are just going to throw their hands up and go back to phone games instead of doing that research (the 2DS and the 3DS are the same thing but the DS is a different thing than them, and the 3DS and the New 3DS are not quite the same thing because the New 3DS can play this one game over here where the name of the console is at the top of the box? the difference between the 3DS and the New 3DS is that the New 3DS can play more old games than the Old 3DS (but the old games that you can play only on the New 3DS aren't the oldest games that you can play on the 3DS)?).

The NX should be called the New Nintendo.

I mean on the one hand it is kinda nice that most families can do basic multiplayer in most Wii U games by just pulling that bucket from ten years ago out from under the entertainment center again, but at the same time it doesn't do much to curb the confusion most people have about what exactly a Wii U is in relation to a Wii (I have had two separate people under the age of 20 tell me, unprompted and totally convinced, that Nintendo made both a Wii 2 and a Wii U, and the Wii U is actually the third Wii).

Weird things:
  • Mario Maker 3DS has a mode that only works because other people are playing a version of the game on a different console
  • Mario Maker 3DS isn't using amiibo support as a selling point to get people to buy New 3DSes. Do they think they have a better shot of getting people to buy Wii Us?
  • Superstars has golf and tennis even though [or because?] there are already full Mario Golf and Mario Tennis games on the 3DS

Just asked a friend of mine who has the game; he confirmed it's one side. A lot of them were sold with SMB1 on the other side, but it can have anything on there and still work.
