Title: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: Orta on February 24, 2010, 03:46:43 pm
So, Nintendo Media Summit where a lot of nothing was announced. They did show a new trailer of Super Mario Galaxy 2.

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/ninte ... ario/62270 (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/nintendo-media-super-mario/62270)

I honestly think it looks a lot better than the first one, level-wise.

I'm actually pretty impressed that Galaxy 2 is coming out in May.  Followed closely by Sin and Punishment 2 and Metroid: Other M the next month.

I'm really excited for all of these games and thought that I'd be waiting until the holiday season for a couple of them.
Now the big question is: what the hell does Nintendo have planned for the holidays.  Maybe Zelda is actually going to come out this year.

I don't know though. Last time they blew their wad on the big titles (Zelda, Metroid Prime 3, Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros.) all pretty close to launch, they followed it up with Animal Crossing and Wii Music for the following Christmas.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for that not happening again.

I never clicked with Mario games but I do enjoy 1-3 and Super Mario World. I tried Mario 64 and never understood what was so appealing about it. I have also been playing Super Mario Galaxy 1 on my Wii recently. It's alright, but it would work fine with just a regular controller setup. I'd probably appreciate it more if I only had one game system.

Good to see a sequel is being released. A lot of people seemed to have enjoyed the first a lot.

I am a huge fan of Super Mario 64, but did not like Super Mario Galaxy much at all. This looks heaps better from what we have seen so far, and the release date is shocking in a good way!

I hope this does not mean the next console Zelda game is not coming out this year like they said... I mean, I doubt it, but like, crap, DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN THE LEGEND OF ZELDA AND HALO REACH! DON'T!
Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: Orta on February 25, 2010, 03:32:57 pm
It all comes down to the amount of same old shit you want, Sanus. Reach seems to have new stuff in it but not to the point of being impressive. To me it seems it'll be another game for the fans like ODST was. Zelda will be the usual find your weapons, find Triforce, save princess scheme. I guarantee you that. By that account, Reach wins, Zelda has been done a lot more times.

The Legend of Zelda is like, my favorite franchise not made by SEGA though! Well, it will probably have Wii MotionPlus functions, so I guess that drops my interest in it a lot.

Either way, I would be completely shocked if the new Zelda came out this year. I mean, we never even saw a screenshot yet!

Based on ODST I won't even look at reach, and I really enjoyed the singleplayer for halo 3.
If zelda does come out this year then this will be an even better line up than the first year of the wiis release.

What makes you think Reach will be more like ODST than Halo 3? ODST was quite a departure for the series, I don't think they would be following that formula again.

As a Sega fan who rarely follows Nintendo happenings, how did fans react to Super Mario Sunshine? Did they smile and cheer on Miyamoto for making a disappointing Mario game, or did they act like Sonic fans and have a moaning party?

Surly this got the Mario fans close to complaining?

[youtube:1z1dyaku]FevEajjTFxs[/youtube:1z1dyaku]

Having recently purchased a GBA SP, I took a look at the Mario Advance series and was shocked to find that they were simply ports of Super Nintendo games. Sure, they were quality ports, but take a look at Sonic's GBA platformer offerings. At least Sonic tried to offer something new.

If it sounds like I'm having a moan about Mario, I am because that plumber needs to be taken down a few notches.

Oh, and SASAR is better than MKWii.
Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: Monkeroony on February 26, 2010, 04:14:19 pm
Sasar is a lot better than all the 3d mariokarts, I only wish there was 2 player on the cup maches.

I think it was probably well recieved at the time but slated later.
Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: crackdude on February 26, 2010, 07:04:31 pm
Nintendo has the most fans all over the world. As a majority, they live in their own world where everything they do is "standard" hence "good".

Of course it is all bullshit. Truth is that if there had been a Mario Unleashed reviews would have claimed the wereplumber is a "nice change of pace" and the story as "unbelievably fitting" praising the daytime levels for "great sense of self-satisfaction" and the night levels for "meticulous level design".
132/10!!1!!

So Mario fans never complain about shit. Even if their games turn out to be disappointing, like Sunshine..

GamesRadar hops on the hate wagon:
http://www.gamesradar.com/f/5-reasons-t ... 1547766005 (http://www.gamesradar.com/f/5-reasons-to-hate-mario/a-20100326161547766005)

Best point:
Since 1998 the guy has thrown himself TEN lazy ass mini-game shindigs, leaving him too tuckered to star in more than THREE actual Mario games… And that’s counting New Super Mario Bros.

Between 1998 and now: Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Now look at Sonic between 1998 and now: Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Unleashed

Alright, so Mario makes 3 main series games in 12 years time, while Sonic gives us 5 (6 including Shadow). I'd argue that 1 of the 3 Mario games are great (Galaxy) while 4 of the 6 Sonic games are good to great (SA1&2 are great, Heroes and Unleashed are good).

People may talk shit about Sonic, but at least Sega tries to put out main series games at a more steady pace (1 every 2 years compared to Mario's 1 every 4 years).
Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread

Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: Barry the Nomad on March 29, 2010, 01:57:29 pm
Random rant:

I'd hesitate to call Galaxy a Mario game. Well, at least in the sense that a "Mario game" is what was defined in 1985. In my opinion, when a 2D game shifts to 3D it is more in line with being an adaptation or a 3D approximation than a direct sequel. One can't honestly say that Mario 64 plays the same as Super Mario World. Same goes for Sonic Adventure compared to Sonic '91.

And screw Kart and any other spin-off. In the end they aren't Mario games. I think Nintendoids forget that it is the GAMEPLAY that makes the game, not the character. To say Mario has had a load of great games in the past ten years is horse shit (or whore's shit). A more accurate statement would be that Nintendo has had a load of successful games with Mario's face plastered to them, and some were fun and some weren't.

Same applies to Sonic fans who call SASAR "Sonic's best game in years". Erm... since when did a Sonic game = kart racing? It's an excellent game, but it ain't no Sonic.

Also, according to wikipedia, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is considered a "main series" Mario game. Whats up with that? Shouldn't it be lumped with the handheld games?
Title: Re: The Fat Plumber Thread
Post by: Sega Uranus on April 06, 2010, 06:28:06 pm
Fuck I hate Nintendo sometimes.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is $50 in my region, and comes out late next month, but at the moment it has a $20 preorder credit bonus. That is a great deal and all, but judging that they never fucking lower the price of their games that sell means you have to get the game the second it is released with a special deal or else wait six years for it to go down in price. Seriously, Twilight Princess is still full price every place I have seen. Though, I have owned that for awhile now anyways, so whatever.

What about games that do not sell? They go down in price a bit, sure, but not enough for it to really matter. What is worse is with the case of games like Pikmin Play for Wii and ExciteBots: Trick Racing, they just stop making copies of the games instead of just dropping the price more, so then the prices go up way more because they become rare collectors items.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Interview

Quote
Ohashi : "I had heard that we had been in talks with Nintendo for a while about doing something with Sonic and Mario.
Then Sega acquired the license for the Olympic Games, and we were told to progress with a project for putting the three together.
When talk of the project came my way, I wondered how I could present it to Nintendo.
To start off, we wrote a proposal and presented it to Nintendo, but (Shigeru) Miyamoto-san said he wanted to decide after seeing something with Mario and Sonic actually appearing in the Olympic games.
We were on pins and needles until it was decided. "

The Tokyo Olympics was meant to take place in July and August of this year but has now been pushed back to Summer 2021 due to the global pandemic.
As Abe is no longer in power, it'll be up to his successor, Yoshihide Suga, to don Mario's cap.

Quote
Back in the late '80s, Sega created the Sega Super Circuit, an arcade racing title where players controlled RC cars around a massive 80-metre race track, using a CCD video camera mounted on the vehicle.
Like Mario Kart Live, a lot of human interaction was required – the track had to be manned by paid operators who would have to line up the cars for each race.
These individuals were also called upon to supply live commentary for the on-track action.

I suppose there is no harm in video game golf since it's more for everyone and doesn't take up land.
And Mini-golf can be fun.

Let's not kid ourselves here - we all know what's sitting at number one on the list below of the best (and worst) kart racers on Nintendo Switch.
With a record like Schumacher in his prime, it's a wonder that any other racers bother to turn up to the track at all with a certain moustachioed plumber so far ahead of the pack.

There are flavours to suit every conceivable 2D platforming taste and plenty of room for debate about how they should be categorised.
We have separated out what we consider to be the best Metroidvania-style platformers onto another list, giving both collections more room to breathe without becoming ridiculously large.

Variety is the spice of life and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
The short story mode is all well and good, but it's the lighthearted multiplayer which makes this crossover appealing.
With 34 different events and a fabulous retro mode which is sure to get older gamers' juices flowing, it's a great family game which should get everyone in the mood for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo (now scheduled for Summer 2021, of course).

Yes, thanks to Tectoy SEGA Master System (& Mega Drive) which were sold very cheap in Brazil compared to other game system.
In 2016 Tectoy had sold 8 million units of Master System branded systems in Brazil and the number is always growing every year since even until now it's still officially on the market.

Everyone who has a kid in Brazil and want to buy a very first game system for them, the choice would be none other than Tectoy Master System.
And everybody who've played Master System which usually bundling with Sonic games included in the system, would always remember him and hold him dearly.

Not just Sonic branded Tectoy console, it has about 270 consoles of all generations that count 43 years of evolution,
including the Magnavox Odyssey (the first console) and Fairchild Channel F (first console to use game cartridges).

Post by: Mystic Monkey on March 14, 2022, 06:14:09 am
If you could script a movie adaption of Super Mario, what would be the rough premise would you have in mind?

Mine would be about the Mushroom Kingdom being depicted as a utopian kingdom where both humans and mushroom-folk live priviledged lives (the over-class citizens or overdwellers). But of course these clean streets and privileges need to be maintained and given no one wants to do the dirty work it's left to the literal underside of the city where the poor and the laborours (under-class citizens or underdwellers) live in slums built into the sewers and caverns under the city.

Mario and Luigi live in the undercity of the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario wishes to live in the city above them and be more involved in activities such as sports, games, go karting and other social activities, all the while Luigi thinks these are just silly dreams.

Bowser also lives in the undercity but before becoming king of koopas he's trying to start a revolution for underdwellers rights to live in the city and willing t demolish the monarchy to assure that to happen. While Mario and Luigi agree that it would be nice if the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom were not divided by privileged-class to working-class they find Bowsers revolutionary ideas to radical to get involved.

When the plumbing in the royal castle gets messy, they assign Mario and Luigi to fix it. Mario and Lugii regard this a big and privilege jobs while the royal attendants rather the plumbers be kept out of sight, out of mind. But through circumstances Mario meets the kings daughter Princess Peach and strikes up a friendship with her, which in turn makes her more aware there is more to her kingdom that the idealic city outside her bedroom window.

Meanwhile, Bowser gets impatient for change and decides to take matters into his own hands by terrorism. And given he has koopas willing to revolt with him leads to Bowser blowing up the castle and kidnapping the princess in order to demand better living conditions for his people. However over time the pwoer gets to Bowsers head that instead of trying to demolish the monarchy he will establish his own. Thus Marioand Luigi goes to save the princess all the while face prejudism for being under-class citizens.

I can imagine the movie climax being Bowser blows up most of the city, almost ruining it. But in the end it's decided instead of the city being restored to how it was, instead the city will be built to compromise the damage left over by bowser, thus the giant gaping holes exposing the undercity are renovated and built as part as the main city, thus allowing the citizens to work together than be divided.

At least that would be my pitch for a Super Mario movie. Instead of putting Mario and Luigi on top it would make them start out literally at the bottom and offer them chance to be heroes. The very thing that holds them back could also serve as a "moral to the story" against prejudism and social division.

Isn't Mushroom Kingdom only consists of mushroom-folk?
When I travel in  Mushroom Kingdom (Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle), almost no humans in sight.
All humans seem like they live only in New Donk City,
a town where Mario save from Donkey Kong
where Pauline later become a major of it.

Which is why Luigi is raising the right question here (bad timing though) :

It's because of Luigi's question why I would mix it up a bit to include humans in the Mushroom Kingdom. It would also explain Mario and Luigi's presence as well. The Mushroom Kingdom can still have mushroom folk just live along side humans peacefully.

Maybe Goombas could be regarded as mushroom folk who take on an illness or a defect that forces them to become under class citizens.

It's either that or Peach was once a regular girl who like Mario, ended up in the Mushroom Kingdom and the toads just accepted her as princess for "chosen one" reasons.

Also other theory ...

(https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/001/411/267/b3f.jpg)

and the most recent one after Bowsette meme was famous ...

https://twitter.com/kaylakaneshiro/status/1045478596465381376 (https://twitter.com/kaylakaneshiro/status/1045478596465381376)
It would make sense that Princess Peach was a former toad (or toadette. I don't think toads have gender and "toadette" is simply an identity). It be like how queen bees are made by feeding the one larvae royal jelly. Without the jelly that bee would just be a worker bee.
For this case the Toads may decide a princess to rule them by giving a toadette a Power Crown. And once she assumes the new identity bestowed upon her by the crown she may take over as ruler of Mushroom Kingdom.

But I'm on about my own cinematic version of a Super Mario movie so I would allow humans and mushroom folk to mingle, as well as humans living in the underside of the city with koopas and goombas.

Ha! Sonic's second movie scared it off. They knew this movie wouldn't hold a candle to Sonic's movie so they pushed the release date out of Sonic's shadow to further develop it to be better than Sonic 2.

I've heard they were cousins also.

That Jimmy Poppadopolos thing isn't real is it?

Also, no one f**ks in the Mushroom Kingdom. Yoshi's Island proves that babies are delivered by storks so I imagine a princess making baked good for a plumber is the Mushroom Kingdom equivalence of sex.

The closest I can think of to anything lewd is how the ending of Super Princess Peach claim the Vibe Scepter is somewhere in the player's home. Yeah, check under your Mum's pillow or the back of her sock drawer.

Maybe. I mean a common backstory is that the Mario Bros. were originally from Brooklyn, Earth and on the job they found a warp pipe to the Mushroom Kingdom where they decided to stay. Sex maybe a foreign concept to them. Kinda like the movie Pleasentville. It could be possible there is some sort of suppression field (https://half-life.fandom.com/wiki/Suppression_Field) throughout the world of the Mushroom Kingdom forcing storks to be the only means of reproduction for the human residents that live there.

But after seeing New Donk City and the fact Pauline is the mayor, I'm starting to think Mario and Luigi are actually from New Donk City and that NDC is on the same world as the Mushroom Kingdom, meaning the same laws apply there.

And ever since the introduction of the Super Crown, some fans theories that the mushroom people are actually an eusocial race similar to bees. Princess Peach was perhaps once a Toadette and was given the Super Crown because she was chosen to rule over them. And if she is no longer fit to rule a new toadette will take her place.

Seeing how happy-go-lucky and cheerful Mario is...
It's making more sense if he's from New Donk City.
Especially we know people of that town celebrate his returns in Mario Odyssey.

If he's from real human world like New York, I don't think he will be that cheerful.
May be a bit serious.. or darker... or something like this...

Saudi Arabia Now Owns 5% of Nintendo: Making the Country the 5th Biggest Shareholder

(https://64.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l6mr4snEre1qzj5ggo1_640.jpg)

Quote
This move by Saudi Arabia reflects the county’s history of previous investments in video game companies over the last couple years. In 2020, Saudi Arabia had purchased 33% of shares for the King of Fighters series developer, SNK, with the intention of becoming majority shareholder by eventually owning 51%. Now, Saudi Arabia owns an astonishing 96% stake in the Japanese-based company.
Additionally, earlier this year, Saudi Arabia acquired 5% ownership of both Capcom, Street Fighter and Resident Evil series developer, and Nexon, totaling to a $1 billion investment.
Lastly, Saudi Arabia had also invested over $3 billion into American video game companies, such as Activision, EA, and Take-Two Interactive, in February of last year.

I wouldn't be surprise if Arabian Sarasaland has a somewhat backwards culture that may suppress women, especially their own princess, while Mushroom Kingdom is perhaps more like America or European countries that are more forward and free with their people which is why Daisy can be her more tomboyish self.

Of course, given Sarasaland consist of four sub-kingdoms, none of them Arabian in theme, I dunno why people got the idea of Sarasaland being Arabian like.

Egypt is an African country where Africa borders with Middle-east Asia.
It's very close to Arabian countries.
Most Egyptians are Arabic-speaking, and they are Muslim.
Even the official language of Egypt is Arabic.

True, but when I think of Egypt, I think of the Pyramids, the Nile with reeds growing along the banks, the pharaohs adorn in while linen and wearing gold and blue. I think of The Prince of Egypt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prince_of_Egypt), The Mummy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mummy_(1999_film)) and Exhumed (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerSlave). Old-timey Brits coined the term "Egyptomania (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptomania)" because people liked the aesthetics of ancient Egyptian culture (and it's treasures).

When I think Arabia, I think of the Islamic golden age. I think of marble towers and buildings with onion-shaped roofs, I think of commoners wearing baggy pants and fezzes or turbans. Djinns, carpets and exotic harem dancers which has nothing to do with the modern term for harem. I think One Thousand and One Nights or Disney's Aladdin (even though the original story of Aladdin I think he was Chinese).

The only thing Egypt and Arabia have in common would be deserts.

True, but when I think of Egypt, I think of the Pyramids, the Nile with reeds growing along the banks, the pharaohs adorn in while linen and wearing gold and blue. I think of The Prince of Egypt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prince_of_Egypt), The Mummy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mummy_(1999_film)) and Exhumed (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerSlave).

Yes, you're right. Even thought there are other countries that had pyramids, when people say pyramids people would think of Egypt.
Same things with djinns an carpets, people would think of Arab.
Modern times has changed Egypt and Arab a lot, but not all people have went there anyway.

While modern times have changed these places a lot, it's because of culture such as the islamic golden age, 1001 Arabian Nights or even Disney's Aladdin that makes it that whenever people think Arabia they think of magic carpets, genies or Agrabah, even though Arabia is no longer on the map.

Same with Transylvania. Because of Bram Stoker's Dracula and the movie adaptions that follow it, people think Transylvania is some sort of desolate mountain region that barely has much daylight and always dark and creepy.

Here is what the Transylvanian city of Sighișoara (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sighi%C8%99oara) looks like:

It's just easy for people to associate a severely outdated theme or aesthetic to certain places even if the modern culture is no longer like it.

Because of that, that's why I regard Egypt and Arabia different in themes.

Yes, that wasn't what I had in mind when people's talking about Transylvania.
An online friend back then thought I was riding camels for transport when he heard I'm from Indonesia.
He wasn't aware that Indonesia's in south east Asia, a tropical part of the world filled with forests and rivers, very far away from Arabian countries.
I guess not everyone's learning world geography in the school.

If I recall, Indonesia is a series of islands between Thailand and Australia... though I'm probably wrong.

Yep, you got that right.
There are thousands islands here, around 17.000 islands, but only around 1.000 of them could be permanently inhabited by people.
I live in Java, one of the big islands, I speak Javanese (three version of them) and Indonesian.
English is my third language so pardon me if sometimes (or often) I'm not good at expressing with it.

At least you can speak multiple languages. I've been meaning to expand my vocabulary but I can only speak English. I ofcourse live in UK.

Super Mario World: Super Boy 4 v0.9 (SEGA Master System) is Available Now

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yO_P5KC8p2s

Quote
Super Mario World: Super Boy 4 is a hack in which almost every single tile has been redrawn, recolored, and/or modified to fit in with the SMS palette and the engine’s constraints.
This includes both backgrounds AND sprites, with Koopa Troopas with accurate graphics, Goombas, Galoombas, and Dry Beetles making an appearance Plus, some custom sprites for enemies, like Gooper Bloobers, Scuttlebugs, and the all-new Kooshis, Yoshis who have been transformed into monsters by Bowser’s evil magic.

TO DO IN FUTURE: Change Mario’s palette to be different from the original Super Boy 4 game. Change the text in the HUD to read “MARIO” instead of “S-BOY.”

Takashi Iizuka has shot down Super Mario Maker-Style Sonic Game

(https://i.imgur.com/hLwqdFx.gif)

Quote
In a new conversation with Game Informer, Iizuka was asked a number of questions about the past, present, and future of Sonic the Hedgehog.
In the course of the interview, Iizuka was asked about the possibility of a Sonic Maker game being something that SEGA would ever look to release.
In short, Iizuka quickly and bluntly blew off this idea without even entertaining it much more.
As such, this project seems like it's something that isn't on Sega's radar whatsoever.

Thanks. And it's kinda helpful at least when I got to travel to some place where one of those languages needed.
