Have now completed Odyssey 100%. The rewards are interesting, but a tad underwhelming. Nov 11, 2017

      God, my writing skills have really deteriorated in the last few months or so. Probably because I need to focus on programming, writing and game design at the same time, and it's really damn hard to do so.

        It also doesn't help that search engines like Google and social media sites like Twitter have basically made putting 'effort' into your writing a risky strategy. Everyone just rewards quantity over quality, and it seems success is linked more to how quickly you can get something out rather than how well you explain it.

        Apparently the Toad Houses in SMB 3 are actually just a lie. You don't get a choice of 3 random items, it only chooses the item once you open a box. So yeah, your prize would have been identical regardless of the box chosen.

        Very mild spoilers, but:

        Tyrantrum: Complete restoration is impossible, allowing room for theories that its entire body was once covered in a feather-like coat.

        Seems to reference theories that T Rexes (and other dinosaurs) may have had feathers.

      Finally, does anyone else sometimes wonder what it'd be like if Nintendo Power still existed and was reviewing/talking about modern Nintendo games? Okay, I'm from the UK so it'd be more 'Official Nintendo Magazine' for me, but still. Imagine their thoughts on Breath of the Wild, Pokemon Sun and Moon/their sequels, Mario Odyssey, etc. It'd be really interesting.

      Hmm, do you think the Chargin' Chuck enemies were meant to be in more kingdoms in Odyssey? I find it odd that they're mentioned on the map near the Metro Kingdom, yet only appear much later in the game.
      1. CM30
        CM30
        Then again, I think they were removed from the map at one point, so yeah, I guess they were meant to show up in New Donk City somewhere.

      On another note, the mini games in Odyssey are obnoxious. I'm sorry, but I miss Mario 64 and Sunshine where there were no mini games. Just pure platforming and exploration.

        Yeah, just beat it with 2 player mode just now. Ridiculous how it goes from being a right pain to dead simple the minute you just use Cappy for the whole thing instead of Mario. Still, just a few more missions to go now.

      I have to say, it'd be hilarious to go back in time and describe Super Mario Odyssey to someone from the Wii/Wii U era. I mean, the game must sound like a piece of ridiculous fan fiction if you haven't played it...

        Seriously, imagine being a Nintendo fan on a forum being told the next Mario platformer has:

        A new set of Koopaling like villains who are Rabbids
        Mario's hat being a living creature called Cappy
        The ability for Mario to throw his hat at enemies to capture and control them
        Kingdoms loosely based on real world areas
        Including a New York City area with realistic humans
        Pauline returns
        There's a theme tune with vocals that's sung by Pauline
        Bowser is trying to marry Peach
        Mario can use various costumes
        And a kingdom in the game looks like something out of Dark Souls

        People would think you were a delusional moron. Face it, if you read that on 4chan, you'd think the author was full of crap and that it could never happen.

        But it did, and it's an amazing game. Funny world eh?

        Similarly...

        Describing Team Rainbow Rocket in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon would sound ridiculous back when the game was first announced. Giovanni bringing back Team Rocket with help from Archie, Maxie, Cyrus, Ghetsis and Lysandre? Eh, that'd never happen.

        Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces too. Both would sound insane to someone who hadn't heard of them.

        As would Zelda Breath of the Wild to a GameCube era Zelda fan.

        And as for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle? Yeah, even I was skeptical of that one. A Nintendo fan from a few generations ago would think you'd escaped from the funny farm. Especially if you tried to describe this song:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWv4afWknfM

        Again, how things have changed.

      On a positive note, you know one reason I really like Odyssey? Because it realises that 3D Mario games should work differently from 2D ones. Prior 3D Mario titles felt like they were trying to recreate New Super Mario Bros style gameplay in 3D and didn't really work as a result. Odyssey is Nintendo realising that this was the wrong route to go and embracing the open world experience that 3D games can do so well.

        You can see the same thing in reverse too. Trying to put 3D Mario gameplay into 2D generally works about as badly as 2D Mario gameplay in 3D does. It can be done in some cases (like with the fan game Super Mario 63), but even then the new 'demake' is very different from the original in level design and really only works because of that.

        It feels like developers don't realise that a game can be entirely made of a single gameplay style and work fine.

      As someone's who just beat the Darker Side of the Moon in Odyssey, I think it's not so much 'super hard' as it is ridiculously long. 14 sections for a Grandmaster Galaxy/Perfect Run setup is stupid.

        Honestly, it's really damn hard to discuss anything about Odyssey's endgame/postgame without spoilers. And no, Wario Forums doesn't have much in the way of spoiler rules, nor is it intended to.

      It's like they realised that dying after getting most of tthe coins was annoying, so greatly restricted their mission layout in the endgame. Interesting contrast to most Mario 64 hacks, like Star Road and Last Impact, which scatter the red coins everywhere and make you have to traverse the whole level without dying to get them all.

      Seriously, note the pattern. Bob-omb Battlefield, Whomp's Fortress, Jolly Roger Bay, Cool Cool Mountain, Big Boo's Haunt and Shifting Sand Land have you find them across the whole level. But then every other level sticks them in the same small area.
    18. CM30
