So the game looks like it's very much in alpha/beta since it's pretty sparse but you can see a Mexican looking town with a giant moon in the background. Looks like an open world or at least a hub. The second shot with the bullet bill shows what looks like mountains in the background, and rings seems to be part of the level too.

Only a couple of places shown, but it's already looking like a pretty cool experience. I wonder if the amiibo shown is foreshadowing for playable characters? In any case, I hope that they could somehow make Daisy at least playable here.

That Mexican-themed level reminds me of this piece of music (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdPSXMI-Ns8), unused in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Judging by the two short clips seems like it's likely going to provide a return to what the older 3D Mario games like 64 and Sunshine which is something I would love considering what Mario 3D games have been recently. This could be the Mario game that finally takes the series into a new direction rather than just being a rehash of the same old.

I like how just like with Colour Splash and with the Switch itself everyone is making quick conclusions about this game's workings.

Like it could be literally anything at this point in time.

The ice(?) mountains look fancy though, could be that just like on world maps there are completely unrelated biomes are bordering each other here.
Maybe slightly open world-ish, but this setting is a bit too specific and hostile for that to be entirely feasible.

I'm just going to restrain myself and call this a tech demo.

Super Mario Galaxy 3 would be fine but I'd rather want an entirely new Mario game.

Also, I'm hoping this thing will have multiplayer AND there isn't a splitscreen AND you have freedom to go wherever you please in a level, like how there is a Sunshine mod that can use Dolphin's netplay to achieve similar results.

Don't get me wrong, tech demos CAN look impressive for their time or even look like games-in-the-making (Mario Kart XXL and Peach's Castle). For me, there is way too little footage shown so far, gameplay highly resembles just the first two games, and the presentation didn't look polished enough to look like a proper game reveal. So I'm just being a little skeptical that this is a new game we're seeing rather than a tech demo that'll either not be used or end up to be something a lot different.

With everything that the series has accomplished, what could possibly be done to shake up the formula?
I don't know personally, but Link did shake up the formula and you'd think that its series accomplished a lot too... besides, Mario IS criticized a lot recently for being safe and it's a legit criticism.
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Ninelevendo on October 20, 2016, 03:37:52 PM
The game looks like 3D World with an open hub, no timer, linear levels and hearts (as seen in the second part) which makes it look similar gameplay-wise to the 64/Sunshine/Galaxy games.

Also the girl in the trailer takes it with her and gives a controller to her friend as well as one for herself, multiplayer confirmed?

Little details: in the "hub world", you can see that there is some "glass" there too. An umbrella has purple arrows over it, meaning that you probably have to ground pound it. There is a shop called "Crazy Cap" and, since we were mentioning Fiesta de Los Muertos from Rayman Legends, the left building has on its right side a skull of those Mexican guys.
Regarding elements and power ups, we see three golden rings, Coins, and a heart. The heart suggests a system similar to the first two 3D games or the Super Mario Galaxy games.
Speaking of which, the moon can be seen, so it might be set on the Mushroom World.
Regarding moves, we have seen the triple jump, again from the first two 3D games and the Super Mario Galaxy Games, as well as the long jump. Oddly, Mario has a peculiar running animation as soon as he lands, then starts running normally. I think I have already seen before the pose before landing but not the animation after landing.
NPCs and enemies? We saw four Mexican guys plus maybe another one far away and another one at the window, a Bullet Blaster with Bullet Bills, something is moving on the sand but we don't know what, and two cacti that might be...well...cacti.

I would like a game more focused on exploration and where you get to talk to other people and there's also an actual story. There are already original characters and recognizable, non-abstract settings, which is good in my book. The ultra-wonderful situation for me would be Bowser, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings in the game, but not as bosses, rather as NPCs, allies or even playable characters against another more annoying guy.
You know that thing, you start off fighting the Koopalings like always, then the annoying guy arrives, freezes everything and the fire breathing guys don't like this that much.

Whether or not it is Super Mario Galaxy 3, I am interested. I also have seen a tread that Nintendo usually does. It is showcase only the first part of a game most often. If this is true about this game, this is the main area which will grow once you complete platformer missions.

Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Ninelevendo on October 21, 2016, 06:12:03 PM
Some quick observations I made:

Mario's cap now has a unique falling animation when he lands after jumping, suggesting that the cap is not part of Mario's head but it's own model. This combined with the crazy cap store make it seem likely that you can change caps. Since there might be two player, it'll probably be Luigi and he could change as well. Mario with a sombrero when.

This one seems obvious but the ice (pretty sure that it's ice) might be the reason Mario is in this desert in the first place, Bowser or someone (Dry Bowser maybe, suiting the Mexican theme?) has infested the desert with ice, which explains why ice is randomly in a desert. The town is also covered in it so progressing might remove that ice, allowing more things to unlock and such. The whole thing seems very much like Isle Delfino. This might also mean no Fire Flower in the hub world?
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Swiftie_Luma on October 21, 2016, 06:19:09 PM

I still hold onto more Galaxy themed stuff because it looks like its gonna be there.
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Ninelevendo on October 21, 2016, 06:22:26 PM
Considering that all of the NPCs are skeletons and they have a skull plastered on the wall, as well as Mexico having the Festival of the Dead (hence why the NPCs are skeletons) I don't see why Dry Bowser wouldn't suit it more. I'm not saying that it's certain I'm just saying that it wouldn't be suprising.

Mario's hat had always been its own model, since Galaxy or Sunshine. It's much easier to create a cap from a separate mesh than extrude the hat outward from his head.

This game isn't anything new in that department. They just wanted to give more animations to more actions, thus emphasis on the detail.
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Ninelevendo on October 21, 2016, 06:35:57 PM
Guess I know nothing about models haha

The extra detail particularly on the cap though does make me think that the cap can be repalced and the animations carry over for different hats that have certain effects when landing, like having something on it that would move.

Or they could just be giving detail and nothing else like you said. Guess we will find out.
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO

I do have to mostly agree on this one, I'm not a marketing guy, but in my opinion:
what they showed first and foremost was instead a realistic town setting with original characters that was immediately recognizable, we also saw Mario performing a Triple Jump, what is interesting though is the second scene: we had a desert temple setting along with golden rings (from Super Mario 3D World), a floating heart (similar to that of Super Mario 64), a Bill Blaster and the Long Jump (present in both games), suggesting that from a settings point of view this might be a "sequel" to Super Mario Sunshine that from a gameplay point of view might be similar to Super Mario 64 while also borrowing some elements from Super Mario 3D World.
So, yes, I think Nintendo wanted to tell us that this very preliminary game aims to be Sunshinesque with a gameplay reminiscent of Super Mario 64 and modern elements as well.

don't worry, the mario rpgs have the most toxic mario fanbase, no other mario series comes close.

Also, the difference between this and Sticker Star is that this game is still true to its roots unlike Sticker Star.

Breath of the Wild, a game that has been announced for a while and has lots of gameplay footage vs a game with only 3 seconds of footage and no official title

I doubt it.

You guys are probably right. But, I don't think we will know 100% for sure until January 12 in Americas and January 13 for Europe and the East side of the world.

I won't be surprised that Breath of the Wild was delayed, but not the Wii U version due to the Switch version needing more work done.

Last of all, as long as the Mario game is release within the first six months (true according to a rumor before the reveal) (not Smash Bros. Mario game. This game that is being discussed), I will be satisfied when I get the Switch.

well things can change in that time but its more over what we have now more then anything.

Although i hope nintendo takes their time with breath of the wild, as too many big open world games really suffer from massive glitches and bugs and i dont want them to release by any soon deadline.

Post by: Yoshi the SSM on November 24, 2016, 08:22:06 PM
I am calling this game Super Mario 64 Switch unless I hear a different name from Nintendo. Here are the reasons.
*Super Mario 64 was release on Day One of Nintendo 64
*Super Mario 64 DS was release on Day One of Nintendo DS
*Super Mario 64 DS was release on the second generation console after the Super Mario 64. The Switch is the second generation from the DS. Please note that this is taking into account that 64 and DS are two different types of consoles
*Hearts appear in the clip
*They can easily switch things up for the game to make it brand new while still having the feeling of the first and second versions

So, what are your thoughts on the name?
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO
Post by: Doof on November 24, 2016, 08:31:52 PM
It would just make more sense to simply call it "mario switch"

Post by: Yoshi the SSM on November 24, 2016, 08:56:33 PM
It would just make more sense to simply call it "mario switch"

That name is a generic name, but it has more options to play around. But, I don't see Nintendo coming out and saying, "Here's the new Mario game, "Mario Switch". It is a great game to play." How many people would buy that instead of "Here's the new Mario game, "Super Mario 64 Switch". It will have brand new levels, but keep the feeling of the first game."

I'd only call it SM64 Switch if say the footage we got was of a HD re-imagining of something from Super Mario 64. And even then Super Mario 64 HD would be the more likely tentative name.

IMO it looks like something that will probably get a completely new Mario game name once the final title is released. It doesn't really seem like an obvious sequel to anything. But then again we only have 5 seconds. So even what I'm saying is just speculation.

There's nothing clearly Super Mario 64-like to justify calling it that. You're free to personally call it that if you'd like, but I hope you aren't going to be upset if the game isn't deemed a straight-up sequel to SM64
Title: Re: NEW 3D MARIO

After Super Mario Sunshine I don't think we can be so sure about the title before it is revealed.

I didn't like the name Super Mario 64 DS, so I would not like the name Super Mario 64 Switch either. Both seem needlessly clunky to me, but at least the DS one has the excuse of being a straight up remake of 64. Nothing from what little info we have implied that this is the case here.

And again, I find it odd that the first thing that comes to people's minds when they see footage of a new 3D Mario game is, "definitely a Galaxy/Sunshine/64 sequel". Why can't it just be its own thing?

I'm actually finding many of the Mario title games good. The only titles that I find bad for this game are
*New Super Mario 64. (I will say "What were you thinking, Nintendo.")
*New Super Mario Galaxy.
*New Super Mario 3D
*A name with swearing on it. (I don't like swearing)
*Super Mario: Bowser Returns (Bowser has been in many recent games so it will be surprising if it is called this. And a little disappointed if has nothing to do with Bowser returning)
*Super Mario 64 Galaxy Land/World

I could accept the first 2 if there is a really good picture. I find the New Super Mario games to be good names, but they get old over time and lose the right to be called New. Saying Newer, Newest in the title has an even worst name. I am not seeing New for these three titles (at the top) I mentioned.

Yes, those would all be pretty dumb. A game with swearing in the name? "Super Mario *Bleep*", rated M for Violence, strong language, etc. That will happen when pigs fly.
I think they'll give it a new name because I think it's a new game. (Hey, that rhymed.)

Mario can use his hat like a weapon. This is probably the new "star spin".

I knew this was Mario because those blocks in the city, but yay, we get a metropolis instead of a stupid grass world. And yeah, I guess this wasn't a tech demo, but see, it's something pretty different. Except for some of the worlds, they look lame, like the one with the floating square block thing.

Also, Fancy Bowser. Mario also gets realistic head hair for once.

I'm so effing glad this isn't Super Mario Galaxy 3 though. So glad.

Probably the same old stuff. Mario and Peach are doing what Mario and Peach do and Bowser shows up doing what he does and proposes marriage and the finale of the game will be you stopping the wedding.

But didn't the wedding idea already get used in Super Paper Mario?  Oh wait, it was a forced wedding, and technically, the Paper Mario series is not part of the mainstream Super Mario series.

It would be pretty amusing if Mario and Peach were planning to get married, but Bowser ruined the idea by snatching Peach and setting up his own wedding.  There has to be some reason why Peach is wearing a wedding dress after all, and I doubt that she'd intentionally wear it for Bowser's wedding.

Now that I think about it, I wonder what role the four rabbit villains will have.  It's shown that Mario will have to face them, but you also have to wonder if they're the ones who gave Bowser and his various minions the different hats that exist.  And yes, I somehow caught on that the Hammer Bro is wearing a cook's hat, and throwing frying pans.

the thing with new donk city seems to be that streets, shops etc. are named after donkey kong characters. it'd be a nice surprise if nintendo brought them back but i wouldn't really expect it.

either way for the name alone it's my new favourite location. :dk::thumbup:

also the checkpoint flag is somewhere to respawn after you die. i don't see how it can't do that without levels still being less linear.

I would have to play this game before actually comparing it to the previous 3D Mario games, but then again, it might be a hard decision. By the way, Nintendo has Bowser-and-Peach-marrying-each-other and an-open-world ideas that my game includes. There are some differences, but those two ideas are the two of the main ideas. And since it comes out in the holiday season, I wouldn't miss the launch of the game if I get the system by then.

No.

Some levels are just bigger and have more ground and features a little variation in how you approach the goal. But other levels are pretty much one-way or super confined to the point of being like that. Slides, Rainbow Ride, Tall Tall Mountain, Lethal Lava Land, the Pyramid. A lot of levels feature ways to get around, but they're not as expansive as you think. Not close to open-world.

This game so far seems to have some features of sand-box, but I'm hoping we'll get good interaction. I'm hoping this won't fall into the trap a lot of open-world games have nowadays. Keep in mind, open world is becoming a fad, and many, many AAA titles are botching it.

I doubt Nintendo would go as far as outright lying, but it's very possible they just won't be able to fill the expectations they set up. Companies love hype, but if you can't meet it...backlash WILL ensue.

And remember, when you're watching a game trailer, you are seeing ONLY what the developer wants you to see. Stuff like this (http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/t_original/qa1y6zvrsxs3veen1hku.jpg) could be all over the game and you'd never see it until post-release.

The quality of their games are usually the same (Unity aside), it's just that all of them suffer from massive feature bloat. The more collectibles, the better, and whatnot. Zelda doesn't usually have that problem, so I'm much more optimistic.

I also need to mention Homefront: The Revolution, another open-world style game that let down everyone that was eventually forgotten.

So seeing all of these failed open-world games make me worry that Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild will fall into traps these games had done.

Again, Nintendo has never released a buggy game to the point of these, nor have they scaled back on their promises like Ubisoft has done but there's always a first time. Maybe they hadn't caught in. Maybe they still have a shred of integrity left when promoting their games (which they still do since they emphasize gameplay rather than CG trailers and voice actor voice embedding).

I always felt AC1 was the worst one, the collectibles were barely visible and they made 0 effort to give you a way to keep track of them. I 100%ed at least two of the later games in the series and couldn't be bothered to even pick any up in passing with 1.

Oh, man, it did. At best, the sequel is just an average ho-hum game. At worst, it's bug-ridden. It's filled with errand quests, and the multiplayer is gutted.

I haven't played it, but I think just a few seconds of three people stuck and running in place next to a generator is what sums this game up.

The hats look rather identical to Bowser's hat with the designs.

(http://www.mariowiki.com/images/d/da/SMO_Bowser_Peach.PNG)

It makes you wonder if Bowser's hat is also a magician's hat, and those four rabbits came with the deal.  If that theory is right, then perhaps the rabbits are not entirely evil, and only fight Mario because they're forced to do Bowser's bidding.  And when Bowser is defeated, the rabbits get freed from his control.

Not a likely theory though, since the rabbits do look malevolent.

It seems that their outfits are supposed to remind one of old-fashioned dress. The Morton-like one and the female one's clothes reminds me of 19th century dress while the others are more 1900-1950. It would make sense for her to look "pretty" if they were going for an old-fashioned feel. Either way, Mario characters are always extremely stereotypical, and the stereotype is to make the female the "pretty" one.

Bowser's children were bunnies. Bowser's children had always been bunnies. A large part of the political literature of five years was now completely obsolete. Reports and records of all kinds, newspapers, books, pamphlets, films, sound-tracks, photographs, all had to be rectified at lightning speed. Although no directive was ever issued, it was known that the toads of the Department intended that within one week no reference to Bowser's children being koopas should remain in existence anywhere.

Don't exactly see how the girl rabbit is "pretty". And saying you're "done with this *bleep*" implies this is a huge problem with Mario games but I honestly can't think of many female Mario characters I'd consider "pretty" besides Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, Pauline and Captain Syrup, and that drops down to just the latter when we're only talking female villains. Even then, none of these characters feel like they're only there for eye candy.

This one
(http://i.imgur.com/7IocG9r.png)
is shown when Mario throws his cap while jumping.

Anyway, jokes aside, and apart from the Sonic06y vibes of the introduction (why did they choose New Donk City, pretty much the main and probably only place with realistic-looking humans?), I really like the direction of this: I appreciated the exploration-based 3D Mario games and - no matter how badly handled were the Koopalings after it, it's not Bowser Jr.'s fault nor the game's fault - how Super Mario Sunshine wanted to expand the Mario universe with new characters and recognizable, memorable locations. This games wants to do that again, and I'm really content because of that, I want to see what they will add! If they let Koizumi handle the simple story we might even end up with those bunnies being interesting characters after all!

Their probably just a bunch of rabbit dudes working for a bigger rabbit dude who probably works for Bowser.

I think you'll probably fight all 4 within the grass world as mini-bosses who will then lead up to the big boss of the area.

I don't think I'll give these four much attention since they appear to be wanna-be Koopalings who'll probably appear only in this game aside from a few games, just like most newly-created bosses from 3D Mario platformers past Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine to an extent.

I hope there is a story, even if it's simple. And more importantly characters that talk, as that really adds immersion. I hated how Mario 3D world and 3D land had NPCs but you couldn't talk to them. Hopefully Miyamoto has more of a lose grip on restricting this game's diologue this time around.

If NPCs can be talked too, this looks like it'll be amazing.

I hope there's a bit more interactivity and variety in the urban part we could see because I see taxis everywhere.

Or maybe Nintendo are just gonna stick to focusing on new enemies. Who knows at this point.

Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Ninelevendo on January 18, 2017, 04:17:16 PM
I don't think that will be the case, the hat looks like it's needed to make some jumps. Jumping on top of it looks like it sends you higher and using it as a platform in midair can help cover long distances. That and Boomerang Mario can't make the Boomerang stay in place like Mario's cap can.

My guess is that caps are mostly decorative. I could be wrong though, it would be nice to put on a Fire Flower cap or something.

On another note, I hope they release amiibo specifically for this game, such as Bowser in his snazzy suit. They shouldn't be required to 100% the game but they could unlock cosmetic things or minigames.

So true, man. But since I probably will not get the Switch, I will collect them for fun. Especially Mafia Bowser, which I SERIOUSLY want.

It has just occurred to me that if this game has amiibo support, it is extremely likely to support all the Super Mario series amiibo.

Mario Kart Deluxe was just a port of an older Wii U game, and they got lazy with only one new amiibo costume.

Animal Crossing New Leaf worked with all Animal Crossing amiibo, and the cards, and Villager from Smash, in a non-generic way. Fire Emblem Fates did the same for the time of release. Mini Mario and Friends kinda did this, but at that time, Wario's Super Mario amiibo didn't exist. Seeing that amiibo support was heavily implied in the trailer.....

You are right about the new games being too easy. I think they are still enjoyable, but they need to be at least a little hard. And honestly, seeing the trailer, I feel like it is going to be a pretty difficult game. I have my hopes up.

Mario games have never ever been particularly difficult, and they've been designed that way all the time. Even though they are trying to appeal to the core audience now, it will probably retain difficulty levels of 64 and Sunshine, and neither are difficult games.

It's not an automatic issue as not every boss is worth bringing back. But sometimes there are some that are really cool that I think they could bring back for another go.

Having reappearing characters makes it feel like you're playing in an interconnected world rather than a bunch of isolated microcosms. There's such a thing as having too many recurring bosses, of course (how many Junior appearances are we at?), but it's reassuring to see a familiar face.

I just thought of a possibility, however small the chances are of it happening.

If there is DLC for this game. What if they have it so Mario has a level in other Nintendo universes?

Say for example they did a Metroid level where Mario fcan jump on mooks from Metroid and fights Ridley as a boss in the end. (Regardless how much that might make Metroid fans sad that the best Metroid game in years is a Mario game). With the very premise of the game of Mario universe hopping I feel it'd be a pretty good idea should they have DLC.

I'm not counting on it to happen, but it just popped up in my mind today.

Actually, I forgot to add to the wiki, but the trailer shows that the nearest activated checkpoint flag emit a rainbow pillar of light, likely indicating the respawn point.
I wouldn't worry too much about it.

By the way, I stopped adding frames from the trailer because I didn't want to flood the page with prerelease screenshots, but since a gallery has been created, would you like me to add more frames from the trailer? If so, which subjects would you like me to cover?

I personally think it's going to be more story-event oriented. In SM64, you revisited the same world until you collect all available stars. Whereas within Odyssey, I think you'll visit an area for one mission, but then be prompted to revisit again later on in the game to continue the story. That desert world with the gradual freezing and shifting pyramid seems to imply this.

A Banjo-Tooie structure would be neat indeed in my opinion. After all, I found that going back to the hub only to immediately return to the stage a bit excessive. It was a smart way to load the differences required by the new missions, but nowadays it should be technically feasible to make that happen in real time, or at least force the user to change place a lot less frequently (not after every Star or Shine Sprite or main collectible).

Same here! I don't know why but I keep having a feeling this game will be more akin to Sunshine, with a bunch of cutscenes and more developed story (maybe even with voice acting?)

It is possible that the areas are large enough​ that they have small checkpoints in case you die

That sounds pretty reasonable.

Yeah but in the desert world there is a checkpoint flag in the center of the town but the airship has one too, and it's right next to the town. So maybe they have a different purpose this time, since it's unlogical to have two checkpoints just right next to each other.

I'd imagine that, if there are different areas to explore, then it's possible that, depending upon where you die, you can choose which flag you go to

Maybe it's role to serve as "shrine" from BOTW, that Mario can go to whichever flag pole he want to go.. I don't know. just thinking of why there's few flags on a place... There's 3 or 4 flags on New Donk City.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Dragalge on March 28, 2017, 01:24:24 PM
But isn't New Donk City huge? I would imagine that these checkpoints would serve as warps between important areas in a world, like in DK64.

Not sure if this was already discussed, but I had a cool idea.

The hat is central piece of the game, so what if there were other caps Mario could wear? They would retain the basic moves of the Crazed Cap (which I think is what it's called?): the boomerang, jumping off of it, etc. It'd be cool to see the Wing, Metal, and Vanish Caps return as power-ups, plus some additional ones like a Fire Cap or an Ice Cap (you can probably tell what the inspiration for those are). Considering Mario walks into hat stores which are seen in several areas, it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

Any cap power-ups you'd like to see?

Post by: Magikrazy on March 29, 2017, 12:49:17 PM
Helicopter Cap: propels Mario through the sky
X-ray Cap: lets him see through things
Exploding Cap: lets him throw his hat and it will explode after a short time like a Bob-omb
PSI Cap: lets him perform psychic abilities such as levitation and telekinesis (maybe hypnosis and/or bodysnatching too)
Vampire Cap: turns him into a vampire, he can temporarily become a bat and killing enemies refills health; however, he can only be used in darker levels

I think that's bound to happen, those Crazed Cap houses in each levels look like some kind of hat shop to me. And considering how they seem to be going full back to Mario 64/Sunshine gameplay, what's a better way to do that than bringing the hat mechanic back?

I'd like to see Mario 64 powerup hats back, plus maybe some old powerups in the form of caps (i.e Fire Mario becoming a Fire Cap or something)

edit: now that I think about it, Mario Odyssey won't be too far from Majora's Mask if this cap mechanic does exist. That sounds exciting!
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey

Totally didn't think about Majora's Mask! I doubt Mario will turn into a Goron at any point, but I'd like to see some transformations happen if possible. I see it more working like Super Mario 64 DS, though. The character has to have a cap of some kind.

Have Baby Mario's hat so he can turn into Baby Mario. Also would be a fun exercise to try to tell the difference between the two hat models (yes they use two different models)

I just got this in: have the hat transforming mechanic from Super Mario 64 DS :P

I'm sorry, but Baby Mario is currently a friend of Mario (https://www.nintendo.co.jp/character/mario/whats/index.html), so at most you can see him becoming Mario by wearing his hat like in Super Mario 64 DS. ;)

Nintendo needs to redeem itself for what they did to Sticker Star, Paper Jam, and Color Splash. Restricting creativity from the devs just because Miyamoto dislikes story should not be tolerated by any fan. Hearing about Superstar Saga's remake makes me VERY faithful though!

Maybe I can chip in about this, but when I was much younger, like 12-15, I used to dislike lyrics in anything mainly because they're used in everything including rap and pop songs and those seemed to play everywhere. I don't want to sound like a snob, but I think people, like past me, who dislike songs just because they have vocals just need to expand their palette; typically they listen to mainly video game music so I think those who complain about vocals have a library of only video game music and maybe some other music that lack vocals like jazz but otherwise, they're reluctant to listen to anything outside of that because they think "mainstream" or "modern" music suck and "vocals are so overrated and used everywhere". But again, I did enjoy Ai no Uta and Calling to the Night though I used to call those exceptions.

I speak from my own personal experience just for a case study and I am still, I feel, having a limited palette of music as well, but it has definitely expanded and my appreciation for music outside of video game music (and therefore, vocals) is higher and video game music actually became something I don't regularly listen to.

I just watched gameplay of the game, and I like how the game isn't too much oriented around taking control of stuff. And who knew Pauline was going to be the mayor? It was expected she'd appear because it is related to DK, but not that! Overall, I'm hyped for the game. And it's great that coins now let you purchase stuff. This game also may be getting better from here, we still have until October so the game comes out, so there is a lot more to it than just that.

Yeah they'd really have to redo the levels at this point probably, and the problem with 3d world multi was the camera so, doesnt seem to be too much of an issue still not full co-op in a mario 3d space but still an upgrade and i think thats enough.

I didn't expect multiplayer that much because something like a fully controllable Luigi alongside Mario would've been a big selling point in the game. MAYBE they tried to, AGAIN like they have done countless times in the past, put Luigi there as player 2, but compensating for course design and camera controls is too demanding. Either way, we would've seen it pretty early in the reveal and that we didn't means we should probably be realistic about things.

If Luigi is playable, it should be the same as SMG2 or SM3DL: unlock him at some point and use him any level, including the final boss level where you save Peach.

Yeah, that was when Luigi was clearly a palette swap of Mario. Also, Super Mario Run had a stupidly low budget. This wedding and relationship plot seems a lot more personal this time around.

I don't think they'd change anything in a Luigi run of the game. Case in point, saving Luigi while playing as Luigi in Super Mario Galaxy. I'm also not entirely what would compel Bowser to kidnap Daisy, since they've almost never interacted aside from being in spin-offs together. Tatanga would be a neat boss for Luigi's story but it seems unlikely since he hasn't appeared since Super Mario Land 2.

And we were wondering about Bowser Jr. being taller in the Super Mario Galaxies... he wasn't taller, it's Mario and Peach who are gradually becoming shorter!

Well, Pauline is a lot taller in Odyssey that she was before.

Here she's only a head taller than Mario, but in gameplay footage of Odyssey she's nearly twice his height!

Straight from the producer himself: Mario is stopping the wedding because he "carries a bit of a torch" for Peach. Basically, he doesn't want Bowser to marry her, for his own personal reasons.

Why does Mario want to stop the wedding between Peach and Bowser. Is he interested in Peach romantically, or does he have some other motives?
Koizumi: I've always thought that Mario carries a bit of a torch for Peach. I think that's true even back in the 2D Mario games. If not, he wouldn't be wasting his time rescuing her over and over again.
Do you think Princess Peach feels the same way?
Koizumi: The heart of a woman is a mystery.
Plot twist: in her heart, Peach loves Bowser and Bowser loves Peach, and Mario is just egotistically trying to stop the due wedding because he wants to marry her instead. Cappy looks evil because he's evil, and he wants to help Mario in the selfish act.

Even if Mario does "carry a torch" for Peach, perhaps he does not act on it. Aside from, you know, being concerned for her safety, but he's generally concerned for all his friends. Just ask FLUDD, and all the Toads Mario has rescued.

Okay, let's talk about the abilities Mario can perform when he captures the enemies, which yet to appear in this game.

Ice Bro. - Throw Ice balls, cam only hop
Boomerang Bro. - Throw boomerangs, can only hop
Sledge Bro. - Throw sledgehammers, can perform a heavy ground pound
Wiggler - can get angry to move faster, immune to poison
Koopa Troopa - can perform a move similar to Shell Mario
Dry Bones - Throw bones, can dismantle itself
Monty Mole - dig in ground

As far as I know, the formula isn't horribly different. I don't think it rejects convention as much as Breath of the Wild did, though it does get rid of lives and health is obtained through health items. But again, I don't think I've seen enough of the game.

Thanks for reading.

I'm hoping for Pauline to have a minor role because of New Donk City's Donkey Kong references. I know, it's wishful thinking.

I wonder what's the area that Mario meets Cappy, and subsequently, the part where Mario threw his hat on a frog to cap-ture it, is called. It doesn't look like any of the known locations, like New Donk City, the forest area, or even the sand area. It's black and white, which gives it a creepy feeling. I have a feeling the music would be kind of sad too.

I'd expect him to be like FLUDD

Something like the FLUDD, to me, means that it would be the face of Mario for a short time. For example, Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 made it seem like the FLUDD seems like a part of Mario, and then there's this Doraemon fanart (https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRyAVuLG9FrTuxRjU6UILttivRJlJbQ9yoPjqhGVoJKxI6fcmso70SPYCI) that seems like it's stuck in a certain point of time (case in point: it used Sonic's Sonic Battle artwork as a base).

Not top hats but depressing black-and-white areas combined with top hat themes and the fact that the thing that set off that game's plot is happening again here. Just seems like a good opportunity to throw a bone in that direction. I'm not pushing for anything major but even something subtle that shows they realize the similarities would be nice.

So, I was looking at the official atlas for the game, and I found something.

Look just right the center of the map, you will see a Groenland-ish island that has snowflake shaped edges.

Here's the image taken right from the source for reference.

Do you see it? It looks like it could be the Ice world, and I know we still have Tostarena's Ice boukders and all, but still, if you look, Tostarena is on the other side of the map. So, anyone?

Well, they do have to make Luigi costumes for every single one of Mario's outfits, and there are quite a few of them this time around. I think Luigi will be there, but he will just be an NPC.

Post by: Fawfulthegreat64 on July 21, 2017, 06:05:11 PM
Some of them maybe but some would still look good on Luigi the way they are, simply altered to fit his body frame. At worst, add more green which isn't really hard to do if it's just a matter of textures. After every new 3D Mario since Galaxy having him playable this would feel like a step back, especially since we've got Superstar Saga being rereleased with its emphasis on the Bros. working together. Leaving Luigi out of this adventure would be a shame. Cappy already has a unique true form with Mario's cap as a transformation, he could easily transform into Luigi's cap as well.

We have the poster of Peach and Bowser but the models don't look as detailed and HD as Mario's artwork, they seem to be in-game models. Which isn't bad for in-game, but what about HD artwork? I just kinda think it's odd they haven't released any yet.

Hello, Everyone!
I wanted to get my opinions out on Super Mario Odyssey before its release. So far, the game looks beautiful. It has amazing graphics from what I saw. I like the addition of changing clothes too! I also wonder if we'll see Luigi. Not in multiplayer but as an unlockable of some sort :luigi:. Anyway, I like the addition of Cappy as well. I always hate my jumps not being long enough and I think Cappy will definitely fix that.

Welp, those are my opinions of Super Mario Odyssey so far. I'm excited to see where it will go!

What could the color of the Power Moon in the Cap Kingdom be? It is either Red, Orange (if Metro is brown), Brown (if Metro is orange), White, or Black.

Since we know that the Cap Kingdom is the first Kingdom, it is most likely going to be Red.
Cap, _, Cascade, Sand, Luncheon, Wooded, Seaside, _. Is going to be the order of the game probably, too. _'s are unknows.

I don't want to be that guy, but in Paper Mario: Color Splash localization involved textures, most of them UI related of course, but also some Battle Cards were localized - the replica and the fire extinguisher cards, as an example.

I don't know, I feel like the Seaside Kingdom will be a mixture of underwater and like a harbor or a port. And this would be the kingdom where you get the captain's hat and I assume captain clothes. Unless there's yet another water kingdom to be revealed... which let's hope not because Nintendo knows we hate Water levels.

As for the Lake Kingdom, I think this is where you will be able to get the Swim gear. But when I try to visualize it I can only think of the Wooded Kingdom and some levels from Color Splash. So I'm not entirely sure.

We still have 5 more kingdoms until it reaches the amount of courses SM64 had. Hopefully we will see more than 15 kingdoms. Crossing my fingers for a lava and Japan style kingdom.

If Sarasaland DID make a return, I'd imagine we'd have to wait until 2019 for it, because then it'd be for Super Mario Land's 30th anniversary.

Nope, that's a good thing. Sunshine is underrated mainly because of a few bad things like Pachinko Game and blue coins and stuff like that. It's still a good game overall, and Odyssey will likely use the good things about Sunshine while throwing out the bad.

Either way, Super Mario Galaxy is unique as these aren't as challenging as the others... (Remembers recent play through of The Perfect Run and the many lives lost.)

Ok hold on now.

You are going to skip on Odyssey, the best Mario game in something like a decade, for something as stupid as weak amiibo support?

I mean I know you want that amiibo service you always wanted and maybe this "Daisy amiibo support" thing, and I respect your opinion, but you can't say wether a game is good or bad just based on amiibo. I don't care about amiibo, I'm going to get the game because it looks great, and I know I'll love it. Also you can't get a game just for the amiibo.

I mean ok, it's your opinion, you have the right to think that way, and knowing you, I guess I can't really convince you.

I'm moving on to another subject for no reason at all. Anyone notice the painting in the Sand Kingdom that goes to the Metro Kingdom. I am thinking this is how the Metro Kingdom is unlocked and once you defeat the night boss in the Metro Kingdom, you can go there in the Odyssey. I think... Either way, I think that the Metro Kingdom is optional in terms of gameplay. Maybe...

Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: YoshiGo99 on September 14, 2017, 09:43:58 PM
From the looks of that clip of the World Map, the Metro Kingdom will not be the 2nd (because it's quite obvious the Cap Kingdom is first) kingdom. Seems to me it goes Cap Kingdom, Cascade Kingdom and the Sand Kingdom and then it can go anywhere from there.

Also  the painting is kind of odd. I think it could be a way to access later kingdoms but if the Odyssey can't move until you collected enough Moons, then after you've done your business in the Metro Kingdom, you must head back to Toastarena using a painting.

Alphadream's Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga DX + Paper Jam only supports amiibo of characters that are in the game or Bowser's Minions. Most of Nintendo's games that support amiibo, support those of characters not in the game, like Miitopia, Yoshi, Pikmin and Zelda.

The Smash render of shirtless Mario reminded me of Master Higgins (Adventure Island):

In fact, this is why I thought Mario's topless look is a bit familiar: the body stature between Mario and Master Higgins are similar, except the facial hair. It only took me to see Mario running that made me recall the picture of Master Higgins running.

This one is a little different. The internet is more widespread now than it was in 2007, and there was a trailer showing Rosalina in Mario 3D World well before release. Also, the plot, costumes and more seem to be focused on Mario and don't really leave much room for Luigi.

The Nintendo Switch game cards can hold a lot more memory than a single-layered Wii disc, so in theory, it should be possible to pull off.  But if it can't be done before the release date, it could always be implemented in the form of a software update.

There's only so much time and resources in the world. Animating and making sure costumes work on Luigi could be time spent making more features and building the world. But that's just me, a jealous Daisy fan talking.

It would actually feel entertaining if Luigi is playable as well, but I would want it to be more of an extra mode, much like with how Super Mario Galaxy handled Luigi mode.

I just hope he has different cutscenes from Mario's this time around.

Uh, they can easily edit the model and import animations onto Luigi with a few tweaks here and there. Hell, the playable Luigi and playable Mario in Galaxy and Luigi's Mansion respectively have their models clearly edited to fit their brother's bones.

Most of the resources that need to work are already working on Mario. It's not expensive to edit the existing models to have them fit on Luigi.

Hell, even Mario in Galaxy was screwed around to fit in the bones so Luigi doesn't look AS horrible (he still does look horrible in Galaxy). You can tell by how elongated Mario's abdomen is in Galaxy compared to the Marios in other games.

Also, that's not how game development works. Building the world and making more features are far more expensive than Luigi

No

but I think the bird is also themed according to the area. In a video posted earlier, the bird that lands on Mario's nose has a top hat. Here, it has the coloration of a macaw, probably inspired from the scarlet macaw.

The recent Twitter on this game (https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/912738818591215617) is amusing. Essentially it demonstrated that one of Mario's moves is rolling, so you can imagine where the comments would go. (If you aren't clear, basically many people compared Mario rolling to Sonic a lot, since Sonic's well-known for spinning.)

Anyway, I wish we have a version of this official art where Mario is in the same pose, except he's wearing his cap rather than putting it on his finger.

They have shown Peach actively tries to escape when captured. Mostly in the Paper Mario series but in 3D Land we get to see her attempts via mail. So I don't think Peach just sits there doing nothing.

According to the Japanese amiibo compatibility (https://www.nintendo.co.jp/hardware/amiibo/chart/index.html) website, the following amiibo will unlock costumes: Mario, Dr. Mario, Gold Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Wario, Waluigi and Diddy Kong

I imagine that the plumbers are simple colour unlocks since they have the same fashion sense as Mario, but the odd thing here is... Diddy Kong? Note that this list excludes Donkey Kong, and even Yoshi or Toad for that matter, so I wonder what on earth Diddy Kong even unlocks.

I wonder, if there ever is a way to get a game over, would getting a game over resulting in Bowser Marrying Peach? Like, the screen says "Game Over" and Bowser is taunting you because he just married her?

I would like to think that it would be similar to Banjo-Kazooie: that is a game with lives, yes, but to get a game over, you can quit the game on the in-game pause menu, and then the Game Over cutscene plays. It basically shows what happens when the villain got their way (in that game, the villain stole the beauty of Banjo's sister). I can't imagine Nintendo doing this, but I am sure they would subvert these expectations.

It still bugs me on the wiki that we can't seem to figure out the color of the Metro Kingdom moons. It went from Bronze, to orange, and now it is cream.

I say it's straight up Brown. I was okay with Bronze because it has a similar color to the Bronze Stars from Galaxy 2. But the more I look at the moon, the more I see it as Brown.

In the last trailer, a Banzai Bill chases Mario through a lava world, and this bullet bill wears Bowser's top hat - does that mean, Bowser can capture stuff too? Also, in earlier trailers Bowser can be seen throwing his hat in a similar manner as Mario throws Cappy.

I can agree on this one. It never felt necessary to me to upgrade my inventory a whole lot, just add a line or so your weapon stash, a few to the others, and you're good to go.

Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey

Since the game is about exploration and problem solving rather than getting from point A to B, I don't think so. Remember, games like Banjo-Tooie and DK64 had no lives either. They almost seem pointless in a sandbox type game.

Post by: YoshiGo99 on October 17, 2017, 02:23:26 PM
I like that they removed the lives because it was pointless. It was so easy to make lives in SMG2, SM3DL, and SM3DW. It also just wasted time if you happened to run out of lives or if you get all these lives and then you turn off the game, come back and then you are back at the default amount.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Princess Mario on October 17, 2017, 03:03:34 PM
10 coins from dying is more of a penalty than lives though I still wish Nintendo can streamline the animation, like make you lose 10 coins right on death rather than AFTER death. Also, the death animations suck in this game.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Semako on October 17, 2017, 05:11:27 PM
As the others said lives are pretty pointless in a sandbox game like this.  When playing soemthing like SM64, it feels like a pure waste of time when the Game Over screen pops up - as it doesn't cost any progress in the game, the only thing I have to do after a Game Over is to re-enter the castle and find the way to the course I want to collect stars in.
10 coins in my opinion is not enough of a penalty for the loss of a life on the other hand, especially considering how easy you can accumulate a great amount of coins in this game. Also, I would've changed the 100-coin moons to 100-regional-coin moons, to make them a bit more difficult and to award the player for collecting all 100 of those in a kingdom.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: MnSG on October 17, 2017, 06:27:21 PM
While having no lives may make it impossible to get game overs, you'd still have to maintain your health supply during boss fights; losing all your health means that you'll have to restart the boss fight from the very beginning.

Post by: Fawfulthegreat64 on October 17, 2017, 11:36:27 PM
If you can buy moons with normal coins, I'd be pretty pissed if I got my 100th coin to afford it, then died on the way to the store. If they're gonna make you collect coins for a moon, I say it should be within easy reach after the last coin like in Mario 64, not with potential death between you and it like certain missions in Galaxy. Then again, with how many multiple-coin blocks there are (I even was able to rack up a ton of them with Cappy against 1 block in the demo) there doesn't seem to be a challenge with the normal coins anyway.

Lives are just pointless in most platformers.

Their only purpose is probably for a hardcore or a arcade-like mode where if you lose all lives, you start from the beginning, but platformers don't need to have lives to be challenging.

And IMO I think Odyssey can do WITHOUT a penalty at all as by dying, you lose progress anyway.

There's a reason why Regional Coins aren't used to buy Power Moons though.  Only up to 100 exist in a specific kingdom, and they're used to buy outfits that may be required to complete certain objectives.

If the rules changed by making the Regional Coins be used to buy Power Moons, you could end up getting trapped and forced to start the game all over again, all because you're no longer able to buy any of the other items that require Regional Coins.

I think you could still have things like 1-Up Mushrooms in this game but they act like Fairies from the Zelda series. As soon as you lose all your health the 1-Up Mushroom fills it back up again. There would probably be a limit to how many you can have like 5 or something. And they'd be really rare or expensive.

My GameStop has a Switch, but I haven't checked to see if it has an Odyessey demo. Come to think of it, I think it may have been decorated with Odyessey stickers, so there's a good chance it does. Of course, the next time I need to go to Gamestop is to pick my copy of the game, so not much of a point of playing it then.

With the fact that there are spoilers abound, I am wondering if anyone here felt that the game is somewhat less amazing, due to the game's surprises being discovered before playing this game. I imagine that everybody who have seen them won't mind because I am sure you all will still have a good time even when knowing some details with the game. I haven't actually seen them because I felt that it would dampen my enjoyment if I learned too much about it (I pre-ordered this game already). It looks like this game will be a grand adventure, so it's important that I am able to discover them myself.

It's funny because I played Sunshine after knowing many things about it, such as the final boss, but I still learn about some things I didn't know, like how the final boss isn't as easy as speed runs made them out to be, and how the deadly river level is incredibly difficult (ground-pounding on the lotus pad is a death sentence). Likewise for 3D World, which I watched playthroughs but still having a good time. I guess a point could be made with Mario games not being about the story, compared to something like Xenoblade that thrives on its story, but still, getting the game with limited knowledge about it feels better compared to knowing too much about it.

Thank you for reading.

I was starting to think that as I watched.

I got bored of watching this player, he isn't that great and at times is clueless and it seems like he's never played a Mario game. An example would be that he kept using Goombas far away to create a stack to reach something high up when there was something else that made it easier and quicker to reach. Even at times he was aimlessly walking around and just doing nothing.

I'll admit I did spoil myself way too much but was it worth it? Yes, I am so excited to play the game myself. And it's better because I get to make my own decisions and play how I play. The player jumped around and didn't explore much or passed things I thought looked interesting. The story was kind of what I had in mind. Hate to spoil it, but it goes like every other Mario game. Mario saves Peach. Yes there was a slight twist and Odyssey added some cool things to it but it's essentially a usual basic Mario story.

But the game is packed with so many references it's insane. I'm even surprised Nintendo even did some things, they are just things you wouldn't expect but you could see being in a mod or a hack. Also I watched just to confirm some theories or ideas I did have and well... there was a lot I had in mind that came true.

As for content and post-Final Boss content, it's a lot. More than any other Mario game and more than I even thought.

Has anybody used the Diddy amiibo to find out what it unlocks? It has been speculated that a monkey costume would be unlocked (even though we never see the monkey costume in promotional material so far), so has anybody confirmed this?

Moreover, the Luigi, Wario and Waluigi amiibo appear to unlock costumes. Do they unlock Mario costumes with different colours based on the mentioned characters?

Finally, I wonder what Wedding Bowser would unlock, given what Wedding Peach unlocks.

Thank you for reading.

since im older, im definitely being a lot more critical on it; the lack of hub world, and its more linear gameplay are something im trying to get used to. but they probably did switch up the formula for the better.

i love the plethora of new characters/worlds/items introduced, it'll be really cool to see them return in spin-offs and later games, and I really love how many references to past titles there are

I got this game yesterday, and I've played it for about 12 hours so far I believe, and it is so fun. I love how exploration-based it is (even if a few moons are a bit hard to find). I love the references to other games, and it might be cool to see some DLC for the game, but I'm not sure about that.

You know a thing I really really like and that Banjo-Kazooie (and Tooie) did but SM64 and SMS didn't?
Not necessarily quitting the level after you get a story-related power moon or multi moon. Even though this potentially made the levels less versatile (although in this case Odyssey doesn't seem affected at all, with nighttime and rainy versions of the levels), it prevents having to repeat whole section of levels every time a main goal is reached and also gives the impression of playing a single, cohesive adventure.

The good news is, there is hope for this! I noticed a tradition that every Mario Kart game takes elements from the main 3D platformer of the same system it's on (except for Super Mario Kart and Super Circuit, which took elements from 2D platformers).

Super Mario Kart had a bunch of tracks based off Super Mario World, and the sprites resembled those from SMW.
Mario Kart 64 had Royal Raceway, plus Leslie Swan voiced Peach.
Super Circuit remade the SNES tracks, just like the Super Mario Advance games remade the SNES games.
Double Dash had all the Piantas, Nokis, Cataquacks, and Shine Thief. Plus, the Mushrooms were the same shape as the 1-Ups in Sunshine. And we got Bowser Jr. and our pal Petey Piranha as playable characters.
MKDS had Tick-Tock Clock and all the bosses from SM64DS.
Mario Kart Wii had Rosalina playable and Star Bits in Rainbow Road. And there was a Topman boss in the Galaxy Arena.
Mario Kart 7 had the wooden boards as obstacles, along with the Tanooki Leaf as an item.
Mario Kart 8 had the Cat Cruiser, Cat Peach, Bell Cup, Super Bell Subway, and the Piranha Plant item.

So yeah, I'm pretty confident that Pauline is going to be playable for the next Mario Kart.

not a lot of in depth thoughts right now but i will say i think this is one of the best games that i've ever played, still havent quite decided if it beats the galaxy games in terms of being my favourite game ever, but yeah its pretty amazing. love the level design, love the scope and content of the game, love the smaller details and stuff, overall just a wonderful experience. it's the kind of game that i know once i'm finished with it that i'll be able to come back to it a few years down the line and enjoy all over again

Apparently, not even this game is same from glitches.

The video Xplains (pun intended) it. You hear about glitches being patched, but I feel this one will not be patched unless they decide that this is something they don't want in the game anymore. And if a glitch has been found within 4 days after being launched (though the one that found the glitch had it longer), we could expect glitches to come fast. However, it is not guaranteed.

It's always a bit difficult to judge that stuff with him as he only has like, 5-10 minutes of screen time max in most games.

It helps that he's a constant presence in this game, unlike most games outside of the 3D ones and he's doing an amazing balance of his goofy and serious traits (even the Galaxy games flip-flopped between one or the other).

I have played this game, and similar to my experience with Super Mario 3D World, I didn't feel the fun in the beginning until I played more of it. In fact, I am looking forward to going back to this game.

One of the fun things to do in this game is rolling. I wasn't sure how to roll until I accidentally do the motions, and then it feels great to be able to roll because of how constantly in-motion Mario is doing, and how fast Mario can get when going downhill. The fact that the rolling is affected by inclines make rolling feel realistic, if not slightly inconvenient because I like to roll forward.

Having heard Cascade Kingdom's theme the first time, I am surprised that it is similar to the theme played in the January 2017 reveal of Super Mario Odyssey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kcdRBHM7kM), but I am not entirely sure when the variation of the one in the theme will play.

The Broodal boss in Tostarena reminds me of Teslagrad, because...

So the New Donkers are called that because of where they live. Their species is human. So I assume that Tostarenans is not the name of their species. Same with all the other locals you see in the game.

Maybe Tostarenans are Chinchos. I mean we do have the other enemy. And they are both undead so I see no reason why they can’t be called Chinchos.

Steam Gardeners are robots.

Lochladies can still be called like that I think.

Bonneters... I don’t know.

And neither do I know about the rest.

There are some things that would not have taken me by surprise if I watched the spoilers. I am glad I avoided them before playing this game because by seeing the twists play out the first time, it got me excited. I won't say for sure what they are, but to put it this way, I have reached New Donk City.

For New Donk City's Jump Rope minigame, how did you all do in this game? I have only managed to get 92 jumps at maximum with the moped trick, while only 58 if using regular jumps. When I looked at the leaderboards, I noticed that out of the 5 other friends playing the game, only 2 managed to get over 100 jumps (Freakworld and Gamefreak75), while the others got less than 50. Perhaps I should do this again when I can, but this is one of the hardest minigames I have encountered.

The Talkatoo is very useful in locating some of the Moons, since the hint is usually enough for me to figure out where to go from there. It's also useful in finding out if there are still Moons to collect after that level.

Just noticed a typo in the German version of the game. A moon in the Wooded Kingdom is called "Die Nuss im Roboterlaggerraum" (the nut in the robot storeroom), but the correct spelling would be "Die Nuss im Roboterlagerraum".

I got featured in a Nintendo Life compilation! Wahoo! It shows off impressive jumps and speed-run type stuff. They chose out of people sharing clips on Twitter with the hashtag #MarioMegaJump. There's 18 clips in the video, so I'm honored to be chosen with that relatively small number. Mine is at 4:13.



I believe they're gonna do another video, so it's not too late to share yours!

As for insane jumps... well there's always that video I saw on Twitter of someone using a glitch to bounce off a dog repeatedly so Mario ends up on the floating platform in the Sand Kingdom. That's kind of nuts.

This point seems to be glossed over, so I would like to bring this up again:

The amazing part with this thread is, so far the title has not been changed to the game's title. It still retains the 2001: A Space Odyssey reference. I know everybody knows what game it's referring to, but what's the reason for retaining the Space Odyssey reference?

If there's no good reason to retain it, could it be changed to the game's actual title like the other game-related threads?

Thank you for reading.
i have it like this because i think it's a cute title and i don't really see any pressing reason to change it because everyone knows it's the odyssey thread anyway

i haven't really been following the discussion of this game but i finally got to post game yesterday so here's my thoughts on the ending or whatever

Progress so far: reached Bowser's Castle, but haven't done anything worthwhile there yet.

I have finally seen what this "out-of-place boss for a Mario game" looks like!
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I have finally overcome the two tough minigames in New Donk City and Bubblaine! I followed the moped trick and the 2P Cappy trick in order to overcome them, but I managed to get the 100 point Moons from either. The New Donk City is incredibly tense and a bit inconvenient due to the moped being tricky to position, but eventually managed to do it. The 2P Cappy trick is great mainly because Cappy moves really quickly, making it very good for returning the ball back. From my Friends list, I noticed that there are three others who overcome the challenge (Crackin55, Gamefreak75 and Freakworld).

For Luncheon Kingdom, there is a second golden turnip in a seemingly unreachable place (hint: not the ones near the soup and in the cheese blocks). I managed to reach there using a Hammer Bro to boost my jump and just reaching that place, but how do you normally go to the area with the second golden turnip?

Thank you for reading.

For New Donk City's Jump Rope minigame, how did you all do in this game? I have only managed to get 92 jumps at maximum with the moped trick, while only 58 if using regular jumps. When I looked at the leaderboards, I noticed that out of the 5 other friends playing the game, only 2 managed to get over 100 jumps (Freakworld and Gamefreak75), while the others got less than 50. Perhaps I should do this again when I can, but this is one of the hardest minigames I have encountered.
I waltzed[1] in, haven't even tried the minigame before aside from watching my friend attempt and fail, and I got around 117 with a bunch of short hops. Mainly, I was playing this for my friend who had an enormous trouble. The hardest part for me was getting the first jump in, lol. The trick to this minigame is to short hop: tap A lightly. If you played a lot of Smash Bros. and you're good short hopping in Smash Bros., this minigame is no problem. I think it's easy once you get a rhythm going.

As I have mentioned in my last post, I finally made it, although through using the scooter because its short and quick hops are consistent, making life easier for me. It's not the most elegant solution due to some of you doing natural jumps to accomplish the challenge, but I like that you can do this because some people can have difficulty doing light presses continuously like me.

What's the intended way of entering the floating inverted pyramit in Sand Kingdom from the bottom?
The 2D section which has a moon in a secret area is not accessible from the top of the pyramid which can be reached by electric wires, so it must be possible to reach the entrance at the bottom. However, the only way I found to do this was using the infinity flying glitch with Glydon.
 Is there another way to reach the pyramid's bottom entrance after it raised off the ground, or is this a major oversight by the developers?

I have never found a time when NES would be good to use, since the environments in Mario Odyssey have bright colours that the NES's limited palette won't do them justice. I have only taken one snapshot using the Game Boy filter, but only in an indoor area (Mount Volbono's Crazy Cap shop). At least the SNES is still pretty colourful, which I prefer.

I have finished this game! While I understand that there are many Luigi fans here who wished he's got some involvement in this game, I am quite keen on the Mario, Peach and Bowser dynamic shown here, and to a lesser extent in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine (two games that are incidentally completely absent of Luigi, unless you want to count Green Mario as Luigi). One of the complaints regarding Mario I have seen is that Mario's not known for his wide range of expressions (something Luigi has in spades), so it's great that this game opened up Mario to a wide range of expressions that you don't normally see.

How do you all name the individual levels? I normally name them by the locations they are found in, rather than the Kingdom names. For example, Bonneton, Tostarena and Fossil Falls. I think most people name them by the Kingdoms except for New Donk City, which is probably the only place people name by the location rather than the Kingdom.

Have started watching PackAttack's playthorugh series on Youtube.

Pretty cool graphics (of course), and the first (at least that I've noticed), to show unbounded underwater scenes. (The 3D games I'm familiar with: Galaxy 2, 3DL and [from watching) 3DW always seemed to encase you in a stone passageway).

Overall, it seems like Sunshine, especially with having to clean up the purple stuff on the ground, and then taking over that creature with the water jet, and just the different settings in general.

I'm not into the "free roaming" (or whatever that's called); I liked the definite goal of the 2D games, and 3DL/W, and even with Galaxy, things were pretty confined on the little planets. So i don't plan to get this one. (Did get to try it in Nintendo World, and it was in the forest with the T-Rex, and I didn't know how to get out. I guess you needed the special hat, and he didn't have it on. Plan to play it there again, and hoe I can find one in other areas, especially New Donk City).

Still only have a Wii, and so if we ever do get the Switch; I hope they eventually do allow 3DW to be playable on it. That's the one I still would like to do.

"Mario is not our IP" was literally a quote from one of the RPG directors. They are probably afraid to not play it safe. It's why I never really gave them my time.
That quote was referring to a game that was controversial even among RPG fans and the 'afraid to not play it safe' thing mostly started with Sticker Star, with it and Color Splash being the most obviously affected by it. I'm not sure how anyone could think Super Paper Mario played it safe. Even if you don't like it, it took a lot of risks which isn't really deniable. Talking in terms of locations, characters and story here. And it applies to TTYD as well, slightly less but still applies.

There's an interesting interview on 4Gamer regarding this game: http://nintendoeverything.com/super-mario-odyssey-producer-on-approach-to-development-theme-song-pauline-higher-age-rating-more/

One interesting part is how the developers don't merely develop a level around the locale, but instead they come up with the design of the level before they decided on the theme. Another interesting thing is that Tostarena is Mexican-themed instead of Egyptian themes (as would be assumed because sandy desert = Egypt) because the director Kenta Motokura is fascinated with his trip to Mexico and wanted to reflect that in-game. It's for the best in any case because Mexicans enjoyed a form of Mexican representation in Mario games.

One of the comments was made on how this is a Mario game that is at a level higher in game rating (CERO B instead of CERO A, with A basically means "E for Everyone"). Koizumi theorised that it might be the changing standards of game ratings, and guessed that one of the factors is the realistic-looking tanks (for any Mario fan, they are called Sherms), but is not bothered with the idea since Mario games aren't specifically targeted for any one demographic.

Finally, the idea to bring back Pauline is due to being a city-based location (New Donk City), and Pauline is the type of person you find in a city-based location. They have the idea of making her a Princess, but they decided on a Mayor instead, because cities typically don't have princesses.

Well, there's a reason the director incorporated the very elements that you speak of into the Sand Kingdom, instead of Egyptian-related elements based on the common perception that sandy desert = Egypt. Meaning, if they went through with the Egyptian motif, it could very well be designed differently as to have different music, residents and the clothes.

But there are Egypt themes in Sand Kingdom? We have a Sphinx and a Pyramid and vast expanse of barren sand dunes, which looks more like the Sahara than Mexico (to be fair, we have Algodones Dunes and Gran Desierto de Altar from Sonoran Desert, but I'd like to see more variety in desert design like in real life). I say it's both Egyptian and Mexican. Heck, I'd say most deserts have already American elements by the mere inclusion of cacti. I'd honestly want less Egypt and more Maya/Olmec-like temples.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Czario on November 26, 2017, 10:56:57 PM
The sphinx is in other kingdoms, so he's not there to affect the theme of the Sand Kingdom, though it would appear that way. Also, I got more of a Mesoamerican vibe from the pyramids, though I'll admit they do have some Egyptian design qualities.

I see your point, though I don't think Mario Party has any realistic-looking monsters. I imagine that with how Mario Party portrays its violence as cartoon, like how characters bounce on lava/fire when they come into contact with it, it's not that realistic.

I don't think realistic monsters really account for a rating rise though. Maybe if they're terrifying enough, maybe but I just don't think mere visual realism means a higher rating.

But on the other hand, Rayman Legends and Kirby have an E10+, probably for being a tad more violent than Mario.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Russian Baby Luigi on November 27, 2017, 08:43:02 PM
Actually, Mario Party 4's Bowser Events (whether you land on a Bowser Space or play a Bowser minigame) are probably one of the most intense moments in the Mario series. Especially if you lose the Bowser minigame.

Some of Mario Party 5's minigames can also be quite violent, like you watching characters fall to their death in Merry Poppings.

Oh, and did I forget Burnstile, that minigame that always pops up in my mind when I see the words "Mario Party is violent"? It has your characters avoiding a steel, fast-moving spiky iron bar and it makes a huge bang sound when a character gets smacked by it.
Title: Re: 2001: A Mario Odyssey
Post by: Princess Mario on November 27, 2017, 08:51:28 PM
I'd attribute that to slapstick. I say the most violent aspect of Mario Party is that Piranha Plant game from Mario Party 1, which was even toned down for Mario Party: The Top 100. Otherwise, it's comic mischief. I think Rayman is a bit worse since you physically beat up characters and there are sprites that show an actual impact on them (which are highly exaggerated). Kirby has the whole grabbing and pounding schmucks with fighter and whip ability, and impaling things. I think impact of violence (like characters realistically recoiling, and ragdolling when things go limp) plays a role here, especially when Nintendo had a problem with Super Mario Spikers and not Smash Bros..

I'm still not sure how Odyssey got a higher rating, but I barely played the game. I think the whole possession thing took the ratings a notch higher, though.

Sadly didn't apply in Mario & Sonic at Rio 2016.

Of course, I noticed it before it later became the craze in Odyssey. :new:
Clearly, this is the work of Mario's magical ability to detail/un-detail his nipples at will. Can't afford to confuse too many children.

I didn't know that the robots from Steam Gardens are based on watering cans until I see them up close. I thought they are robots that have a tendency to raise their hand. It made sense based on where they are found.

I kind of wish all the Kingdoms have civilians that you can capture, even simple ones like New Donk City's RC Car players. since there are only a few Kingdoms with the capacity. I mean, I would like to control the skeleton people from Tostarena, or perhaps the fish people from Lake Lamode.

To be fair I think the Wizard one is like the only one that's shafted. We kind of already have cowboy, explorer, space dude, and I think even the pirate too?

Yeah, the Mario Odyssey costumes are more elaborate compared to the Mario Party 2 ones that I don't mind those versions compared to that. The pirate costume is also available, leaving the wizard as the only costume that is not properly represented. Then again, there aren't any Kingdoms where a wizard costume could be used, except for a small one.

Actually...the game recognises a ton of amiibo by their actual names. I made a very long list.

These amiibo are probably coded in a data driven file, so it's actually not that hard to assign costumes to any one of these amiibo in the list.

Perhaps instead of new kingdoms the DLC will have you visit new areas in each kingdom.

I'd be more interested in seeing previous established Mario locations show up, so there can at least be some sense of continuity and legacy. It could be nice if the Seaside Kingdom has a DLC island set off the coast of Isle Delfino connecting the two. You can't go to Isle Delfino, but you can see it across the shoreline.

im just not sure what having a rigid continuity would lend to Mario games, especially when the franchise is over 30 years old

if anything, i think it would make the series worse, with them having to stifle their creativity so they can adhere to things previous games have established

imagine if in mario odyssey they were forced to insert every location from previous mario titles along with the new ones, the map would look downright unruly

even just using games from the mario series' first 11 years gives us this awkward behemoth

Super Mario Odyssey already showcases off Mario continuity and legacy: by using the gameplay concepts first introduced in the previous Mario games and expanding and improving on it. We wouldn't have gotten the Cascade Kingdom if it weren't for the designers and developers first experimenting with Bob-omb Battlefield and gaining feedback. Most of those Mario moves from previous titles are put to use in this game.

Also, your statement, "Mario is a character so I'm sure he cares about his adventures". Yeah, nice headcanon bro. It's not any more special than my headcanon where those RPG locations may as well not exist.

I just figure that the Mario series has just enough continuity that certain things (usually pertaining to the characters themselves) remain consistent while everything is very modular. Thus all the Mario games technically happen, it's just that the status quo is rarely shaken up aside from someone new joining the fold.
The only exception I make for this rule is that original Paper Mario trilogy is completely separated from the most recent 2-3 games, not out of disrespect for Sticker Star, Paper Jam, and Color Splash, but the fact that pretty much everything about those settings are entirely different from each other (the design of Mario's house, the self-awareness of the characters being made of Paper, Kammy not existing/Kamek, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings existing, etc) due to the latter 3 being more a literal paper version of the Mushroom Kingdom.

I just got the game for myself and my opinion on this game improved a bit! Love this game; probably my favorite single-player 3D platformer, beating out even Galaxy. Not sure about 3D World since I had so much fun with my sister in that game, even with its frustrating moments. Odyssey is much better than Super Mario 64 or Sunshine for sure. I don't think I was this hooked to a Mario in a while. I know that even if I finish the game, I'll still be spending quite some time with the amazing photo function.

Now if only  :luigi:

Glad you've seen the light and enjoyed that game! I thought for sure that you weren't going to be enjoying based on some of your impressions, even though I enjoyed it. After all, this is Mario at his finest, both in gameplay and character.

Thank you for reading.

Yeah, I've been itching to play it for a while. Most of my more negative impressions were from just watching people play and maybe I got impatient at both of them making such stupid mistakes and making the game harder. But my sister still rags on the game while I'm playing it.

I've gotten enjoyment throwing Glydon off a cliff (and I don't hate Glydon), drowning Tropical Wigglers in toxic waters (and I like Tropical Wigglers), drowning Goombas in water, and showing my thanks to countless enemies by stomping them after I'm done with them. I'm more than willing to do the same for later captures.

That’s what I do.

After quitting the capture of a Goomba tower, I immediately ground pound, and there go all the goombas. It’s oddly satisfying. I especially love doing it with high Goombas towers. This game just brought in a boatload of punching bags. Also, enemies respawn, so...

I wanna see a carnival or circus based kingdom. Or a combination of the two. I wanna capture a large circus animal and unleash its rage on the unsuspecting performers and audience.
It's a shame Bowser's Kingdom was the oriental chinese place because Bowser Land DLC would be pretty cool.
Actually, it was Japanese, I'm saying this not because of precision but because one of the major sources of income of Bowser's Kingdom, according to the Crazy Cap brochure, are Hanafuda cards. Nintendo is Bowser's Kingdom!

My brother and me got this game on Monday. I'm already at the Luncheon Kingdom, and my brother just finished the New Donk City Festival.

He started calling the Sand Kingdom's regional coins "Tosteritos" and the name stuck.

At this point, it's still not too late since this game is still quite fresh in everyone's minds. However, I can relate to this, because last time when I completed Super Mario 3D World or Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition and posted about them in their respective threads, I was so late in my impressions that practically nobody responded, since at that time everyone else moved on. I imagine something similar might happen in Mario + Rabbids (which I recently bought thanks to the Ubisoft discount).

I bought that before I left Tostarena. It's now my default costume, paired with Bowser's hat. Even in Shiveria. I'm sure Mario hates me.

Yeah, I did this in Luncheon Kingdom. Right at the beginning, there are Purple Coins over the lava, and you're supposed to use Lava Bubble to reach there. I just leaped right into there and died. Much faster that way. Not recommended if you have that health upgrade though.

Luigi proposing to Peach would at least make more sense than Luigi proposing to Daisy, the damsel from a game Luigi wasn't even in. I'd be interested if her reaction changes, if she already rejects Mario and if you recall how she treated Luigi after rescuing him in Super Princess Peach, yikes.
