    I want that lucina pic
    Retrospectives of the first Super Mario Land zero-in on the game's setting and weird enemies to show how different it is from the rest of the series. That's fair, but the biggest adjustment I have to make as someone used to modern Mario platformers is the scale. Everything is so smol!

    It's small because it's for the Game Boy, and since it was a launch title, they didn't have much experience yet on how to design games for such a small and almost square screen.

    @Just a Wario Fan I am aware. A lot of early GB games struggled between having teeny-weeny sprites or replicating the graphics of their console counterparts but being clunky and poorly balanced as a result. But seeing SML in screen and videos vs actually playing it really puts it in perspective

    Yeah, the graphics are certainly tiny. Suspect it's because Nintendo were worried that larger sprites would make it awkward to play/limit the amount of screen space available at any time.

    This obviously wasn't really the case, since later platformers on the system (like its own sequel and the Wario Land series) worked fine with larger sprites. But hindsight ios everything I guess.
    someone should ask tomato of legends of localization to make an article about what WarioWare DIY's forum was like in the Japanese script

    I still want him to do an article on some of the oddball US exclusive Nintendo titles and Japan's views on them, particularly the older in-house ones like Gumshoe, Balloon Kid etc.

    @stupidface I heard Sunsoft is reputed as a garbage developer in Japan cause they published a lot of horrible JP-exclusice games early on and most of their best games were US-exclusive. I wonder what the awareness of Japanese-developed but western-exclusive NES games is there.

    I got a super mario 64 cartridge in the mail and there was a dick drawn on it
    Remembered a guy who typoed God of War as "God of Wario" and now pondering what kind of divinity Wario would worship and how he would practice his faith

    I misread this as asking about worshipping Wario, and I was prepared to tell you about my experience with Wario as my God. But uh, I feel like Wario would either worship currency, or himself. Or both.
