I miss the days of Sound Tests/Music Tests being a common fixture in option menus (especially Sega games). These days they treat game soundtracks as a 'reward' for 100% completion. What kinda cheap reward is that?? By the time you reach 100% you've heard the soundtrack a gillion times! The stingy swines...
Why are people here entertaining the idea that Mario Land will get a remake? @CM30@TB100 It's not a respected practice in Japan for unrelated parties to touch old, distinct works, especially from historic figures like Nintendo R&D1. It's the video game equivalent of sacred native grounds. You couldn't pay Miyamoto to touch a Mario Land remake, because A), the games clash with his design philosophies/conventions, and B), because he'd never tarnish the work of his former mentor's team (Gunpei Yokoi). That's exactly why he was so aggressive to Retro Studios when Metroid Prime was being made. Mario Land is also directly linked to Wario Land, so they'd have to consider either remaking Wario Land: SML3 or resurrecting the series itself.
If I were an all-powerful god, I'd create a large, remote island of no return, and dump the dregs, terrorists, and war-mongers of the world on it. Somewhere to banish all the fuckwits who continuously spoil civilisation for us all. They can live like castaways, and murder, rape, and wage their petty wars among each other in the sand, with the sticks and coconuts. I don't mean to be dismal, but damn it all, I get so bloody vexed when these totally senseless tragedies occur. As if mother nature doesn't cause enough grief in the world. Bloody hell... It's just not good enough.
It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush onto the floor, said "Bother!" and "O blow!" and also "Hang spring cleaning!" and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.
I hate that unwritten rule on Youtube where you shouldn't respond to comments after a year or folks take offence, like you've just violated some unspecified expiration date on what they've written. Some even complain after six months! Makes it worse when they're spreading rumours and fallacies. Well guess what, trendsetters... you put one down, it's there for good!
Who's the big brain that names the natural disasters of the world? Why would you give terrifying, destructive forces of nature common, pedestrian names like "David", "Tracy", or "Harvey"? It sounds painfully tame and ill-fitting. Why not use ancient Latin/Greek names that command authority... (like Cyclone Cerberus?) Sounds FAR better than saying, "Cripes! Irma just tore the roof off me outhouse/apartment building/stadium!" Sheesh...
Here I am! The fun begins. My tricks and traps will see who wins... Yes, it's true. I'm back from my adventures. Hold your boos and hisses till tomorrow, please. I'd ask someone to put the kettle on, but it's very late (3:20AM, in fact), my boots are full of mud and water, my eyes are weak, and I haven't even unpacked yet. Please excuse me while I recompose myself. It's wonderful to be back, but right now I need a double helping of deep dish slumber pie.
