  • Hmm, Nintendo World Report posted some of the new songs from Mario Maker 2:


    However, as weird as it may sound, I prefer the ice remix from the SMW Central Vanilla Level Design Contest to the official Nintendo one.

    Probaly just me, but TBH I can barely recognise the original theme in the remix.
    But then again, it has been quite a while since I've played the game. Should pick it up again soon. Super Mario World is still one of my most beloved games.

    Some of the liberties they took with the remixes bother me. Like, I deadass heard the Rainbow Bowser church organ playing towards the end of the Mario World ice stage, and I feel like having a straight-up high definition music box recording play over the Super Mario Bros. 1 graphics and sfx is committing some kind of cardinal sin. You can even recreate a music box sound using 8-bit! I've done it before!
    The music itself is pretty good, but straight-up ignoring the limitations presented by the original game's hardware feels... bad.
    Like, that ice remix features SO many instruments not heard anywhere in SMW and it seriously bothers me, especially because a lot of them don't even "feel" like they'd belong. Their vibes are just too different from the regular instruments. We got shit like that in-engine remix of Battle Buoy Galaxy and that shit was fucking gorgeous. You can't tell me that this is the best they could do, because that's just straight-up false.

    That being said, that forest (water?) remix of the SMW theme I can give a little leeway, because at the very least the out-of-place instrument doesn't sound that out-of-place. Oh, and I fucking adore that SMB3 ice remix which goes so far as to sample a jingle bell using that same shitty technology that gave us the Airship Timpani
    Quick rant here: Dear games journalists, if you're reporting on Luigi's Mansion 3 and talking about character/portrait ghosts, remember that more have been shown in the concept art and trailer.

    It's super minor I know, but... I just saw a Kotaku article talking about how they've seen two bosses so far, while neglecting to mention the fact King Boo, a security guard/police officer ghost, a bellhop ghost and a vampire like woman ghost are all shown in the trailer and E3 press pack.

    Basic research is not difficult.
    Am I the only one who just doesn't like GameXplain as a channel? The people behind it seem fine, but it's some of the laziest, lowest effort content I've seen, and relies way too much on reposting official trailers.

    Guau, you have a point, now that I think about it...

    10 hour montages are also plain lazy.

    I quite like GameXplain... the reviews are fair and the 'behind the super scope ' series is nice!
    What extra features does Premium even give? I think I speak for at least some people when I say knowing the benefits would make me more inclined to buy.
    Hey um... after I set up my forum title style item to the correct thread, how do I mess around with the style?

    Try going to Shop, then Inventory, then Configure for the item in question.

    I do that, and all that comes up is which thread to set it to.

    I wanted to upload some photos from my personal documents for a post, but everytime I tried, I got a message that said
    ¨Something went wrong. Please try again or contact the andministrator.¨ Only that. No mention about the possible too large size or insufficient quality. It's kinda annoying. Can you, or anyone else please help?

    Hmm, that's strange. I'll have to look into it.

    What are the photos anyway? Got a third party host you could temporarily upload them to?

    Thanks. The photos are just some pics I made of scribbled notebook pages I recently found by cleaning up my desk.I thought they would make a pretty good example of how my handwriting has evolved over the last few years. Don't know where to dump them online, honestly. I only have Google Drive, and that doesn't seem to function either.
    Hmm, seems like the weird line break bug may be gone.

    Nope, guess not. But it's rarer anyway.

    Geez is this new system buggy. The names are all glowing yellow! ¡Extraño!

    Time to test the upgrade. Do profile posts work?

    Apparently so, though the editor is a bit funky...

    Feels it sometimes adds a line break immediately when I start typing.
    Well, I know I'm a bit obsessed with the Mario series. Someone got asked what kind of bird a condor is on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and my first thought was what that enemy in Shifting Sand Land looked like.
    Hmm, part of me wonders whether we're gonna see a bit of a backlash/legal issues from all the mods/hacks/fan projects using Patreon for development funding.

    We can deal with that when we actually get a takedown request, otherwise I wouldn't sweat it. This forum and these projects are small and under the radar for now.

    Nah, not talking about this site. More the people who seem to be selling fan projects/fan project development as their day job.

    Oh, that's a little trickier for me imo since I don't like the sound of people profiting off of other's assets to begin with. I'm fine with fan projects that are non-profit since it's a fun hobby, but making money off of someone else's characters is kinda scummy. I mean if you want to make living making games then do something unique; bring something new to market. No need to mooch off of Nintendo/bethesda/etc.'s characters and popularity if it's good.
