  • Imagine if Nintendo gave us a really great and new Mario Kart, hyped it all up, and then they turned around and said, "Hey, you better like this because you're not getting another one in 6 years".

    Diddy Kong Racing 2 would also be dope, but wishful thinking.

    I feel like I'm finally mentally ready for super detailed anti-gravity mario kart. It was very intimidating to me last year.
    Wii and 7 are my current favorites though, I felt they captured the essence of classic Mario Kart while neatly integrating to more modern Kart. 8 seems to stray from the old formula and into something new entirely and I have to ease my way into it ^ w ^

    @Inkboy ...it's literally the same game plus Battle Mode and a few extra characters.
    Where's that rotating Mario image you have in your signature from? And is it possible to find all the frames?

    A fantastic piece of fan art by Angelo Furfaro that I found on Twitter (I cropped off the image credit because I had to fit in a square and didn't want to leave a bit of text, so I feel a little bad about that but I love it so much). Not sure what you mean by "find all the frames"; it's an animation study on Mario. All I did was change to a smoothly looping gif; the link shows the process of sketch to inking to coloring to shading to background color.

    Same artist also worked on this little treat which is just a really rough 9 second animation of Mario looking at a pipe, having an attitude, and gesturing?

    That's really impressive :) By "all the frames", I mean each angle, but I can just stop the video and look at them :P
    Did you know that moonlight isn't actually blue.

    It's a warmish light in terms of color, as the temperature of light is inversely related to color temperature (red light is not as hot as blue light), if that makes sense?

    Anyhow, we *do* perceive the light as blue, just that the light itself is not blue, see Purkinje effect

    Interesting. I always thought green/blue/violet were the "cool colors" while red/orange/yellow were the "warm colors".

    They are the "cool" colors in color theory, like they're more subdued and receding in the bakcground; just that in terms of temperature of light, blue fire is hotter than red fire.

    I haven't seen my California scrub jays in months and I'm seeing these blasted cats in my yard, so I'm really worried about those jays.

    If you have cats and if you love them, please, please, I beg you to keep them indoors and away from cars, predation, and disease. Please don't feed any outdoor ones you see.
    I like surprising people for letting them guess how long a lot of parrots can live and then telling them their actual lifespan.

    A bit on the high end. The African Gray Parrot can life between 40-60 years on average while the Sulfur-crested cockatoo's average is around 60 years, and the galah can live up to 80 years. One of the oldest bird is a Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, aged at 83 (died in 2016).There's a Greenwing macaw that has lived for 92 years and there's a male Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo that lived for at least 100 years. Cocky Bennett is a famous bird that lived for also at least 100 years.

    I know nothing about birds but one thing I wonder is to what extent parrots can actually understand the words they imitate.

    @El Zorro (sorry for late response), I get swamped in my notifications sometimes and it's occasional I miss comments).
    I think parrots like the African Gray has a very limited knowledge of what they're saying. There's an instance where the African Gray, called Alex, being familiar with what a cherry or a banana is, characterized an unfamiliar object as "banerry".

    They have to be trained to understand what they're saying though
    New idea for a Mario & Luigi game

    The two brothers snore loudly near Peach's castle while a sleeping Toad guards the entrance to hell. The Undead Dry Bones in the Underwhere, however, get pissed off and they send their worst to Mushroom Kingdom, which causes the Dream Depot to freak out and generate tons of monsters. Bowser kidnaps the Star Spirit, and Mario and friends fight a ton before they get locked in cages.
    So when am I going to get to see the spreadsheet you have of all my usernames over the years?

    Oh, uh, I just know you have Gonzales Kart, Roy Koopa, JC Yoshi, JC Luigi, Koopa Boye, and now Ghostgirl? Am I missing any?

    I was never JC, only J- and J-Yoshi is someone else but I can't think of any others.
    Why aren't there Rayman Origins clones. Just think, rather than another New Super Mario Bros., We get a Mario game that's in that style.

    Rayman and Mario crossover 2D platformer in the UbiArt framework developed by the same people behind Rayman Origins/Legends?

    slams into post at mention of rayman origins
    ive been wondering what a ubiart mario game would look like (just use the vector artstyle it should look great!) but if its even a crossover i think i would actually immediately ascend
    honestly ill happily take any mario and rayman crossover cause im obsessing over both at the moment and ok so basically!!!!!!!
    I always found 2019 to be an off year for Mario (really, only two major releases being, what, Super Mario Maker 2 and Luigi's Mansion 3?). I wonder if 2020's going to be better for Mario this year.

    I didn't even know New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe released that year. It always felt like friggin' a 2018 port.

    ive seen speculation on reddit back in 2018 prob that 2020 is gonna be a big year for mario so i hope it is. give me odyssey 2.......

    @Dr. Peach I think they're not worth mentioning really

    @ZelenPixel it might be also a big year for Nintendo since 2019 has been a pretty dry year for Nintendo. What big releases we got? Fire Emblem, yes. Link's Awakening remake? Eh. Astral Chain? Maybe, but seems pretty niche? Pokemon? Sure, but it's a crappy retread. Luigi's Mansion? Kinda niche to me.


    I decided to just engage in figure study, draw a dynamic pose from the Mario Odyssey Art book.

    It somehow evolved into this
    Prediction for next Smash Bros. game:
    • 2/3 of the roster cut, including Captain Falcon, Marth, Ice Climbers, Zero Suit Samus, and King K. Rool. Corrin stays. Animation and texture quality cited as justification. Link gets an echo character, Dark Link.
    • 2/3 of stages cut.
    • Many items including Fire Flowers cut for no reason.
    • Recycled animations, facial expressions still limited as ever.
    • Everything freezes when someone goes up ladders.
    • Only Classic is the single player mode.
    • Frame-rate drops and pop-ins amuck.
    • Final Smashes completely gone, replaced by a souped up Super Mushroom.
    • Sound options have to be unlocked by KOing the 6th player two times in Brinstar.
    Game generates record sales and positive reviews by critics, though fan reviews are pretty much binary.
    Out of all item cartoon racers I've played, Red Shells still have the best tracking and the most reliable ones....

    Crash Team Racing's Missiles miss way too many times.
    Sonic & All Stars Racing's drones are way too slow and tend to miss a bit too many times
    Diddy Kong Racing's Homing Missile's tracking is decent, but requires two Red Balloons to get, so not really reliable. It's also the only thing that can actually track in the game.
    Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart's Jawz tend to miss if you're pretty close to the racer since they can't turn really well. Not sure about long-distance tracking, but it seems like only the Spiny-Shell equivalent can really stop someone in first, as triple Jawz don't really exist (but there is Jawz x2).

    enter Mk64 red shells. /jk
    ----
    re: homing
    the rare time blue shells miss. One time on MK7 there was one heading my way as I crossed the finish line 1st place and fell off a cliff all at the same time. The blue shell madly flew across the course over and over again in seemingly random paths ignoring the now back on the racetrack mario while it ask me to continue to the next race

    Crimson Wisps in Team Sonic Racing are decent as long as you're within reasonable vicinity of your target.

    Man, so are the freaking Red Shells still the only reliable tracking item?


    I want this for the next Mario Kart, a two-in-one Mario & Luigi styled Mario Bros. character.
    It's really odd why Smash Bros. gets almost no merch despite it being a very successful franchise. Amiibo has shown that merchandising the series is a profitable venture. Just imagine Smash Bros. themed Monopoly, Smash Bros. diorama merch, Master Hand plushies, Smash Bros articulate action figures that can equip Beam Swords and Motion Sensor Bombs.
    Even though I said that I am indifferent towards Mario, I just want you to know that I don't hate him at all. I very rarely choose him as a CPU opponent in the Mario Party games, and if I was allowed to choose the CPU characters in Mario Kart, I would never put Mario on Lord Bowser's team. I would only put characters that I dislike on the opposing team, and Mario is not one of them.

    Well do you at least think Mario and Peach are cute together? I think so. I mean look at this picture. They're both making flower headdresses. It's not every day they're doing something like this together and it makes me happy.

    Yeah, they are pretty cute together and I do sometimes put them on the same team in games like Super Mario Party and Mario Tennis Aces. I like this picture of the two of them together:

    I like Dr. Mario being with Dr. Peach. Dr. Peach is indeed Dr. Mario's beloved companion. I like Mareach alot. I am indifferent to a lot of characters.
