  • Terrible things about the Santa Ana winds:

    1. They make it extremely hot. In the middle of October.
    2. They exacerbate wildfire conditions.
    3. They blow the extremely loud sounds of construction at 1:00 AM in the morning towards our direction
    you were one of the biggest supporters iirc so i thought you'd want to know the Pico article is out to read now

    Yesssss I like his vehicle the most out of the original 4 vehicles (that I knew about thanks to Smash and how it out of four vehicles appears in Mute City SNES) and it's even named after a type of bird.

    Is it a coincidence that he looks like a turtle and drives the most durable vehicle in the game? He even plays like Bowser in being the guy who shoves people around. Like, his intial appearance doesn't even look turtle-like until...is it F-Zero GX? Wonder why they decided to make him look more like a turtle.

    They make him more turtly when he got redesigned for F-Zero X, he was only the lizardy version for the SNES game. Dunno why, X also gave some redesigns to the other three (for example, Falcon actually looks quite a bit different outfit-wise), but Pico was the one who got the biggest changeover.

    Trust me when I say you're not the only one who noticed Pico and Bowser's similarities ;D

    Also this segues nicely into a trivia fact that hasn't come up in MSM yet: The cars actually weren't numbered in SNES. 07, 05, 03, and 06 were all only added to the original four cars with the roster mega-expansion of X
    Something felt deeply right with the world when I looked up the first name in Kreed: BFS's credit and found he later worked on the also-fps, also-jank, also-hilarious Exodus from the Earth.

    If you and @Mario's Painting find Kreed so hysterial, you're gonna *love* this

    Cutscene shall be just called "Mike Dies".

    Frank says "Mike, nooo!" as if he's chatisting him like a pet when Mike inexplicably just runs to the door without even listening to him.

    "Oooh fuck off bas*coughs as something is caught in his throat*tards." Frank says this as if he stepped on a piece of dog poop.

    "How are you Mike." Frank, sounding like a Hey Google robotic voice, complete with even the "Mike" name spliced in like a robo-caller.

    ---------

    "Forget it. Errgh hurry up. Go save the universe."

    "But.................................how?"

    "Aaagh, you'll cope with it.......just..........find the....buttin memory block." -Mike, sounding annoyed before he dies.

    "I'll find it. And I'll find those who set you up."

    It's not just the cutscenes that are funny either. The loading screens (1:20 of the embed) are horribly translated and the NPC dialogue is surreal and hillarious.

    It doesn't have all the funny, but recommend this 4-part supercut

    I like how the commentator reacted to the video.

    During the second clip, oh my god the car's interior textures are utterly atrocious. That's not how you texture a car interior. At all. Seeing all of that bump stuff distracted me to the point where I didn't realize the dude was getting a retina scan with sunglasses on until the commentator mentioned it. Not to mention that the pick-up truck itself looks like a toy truck upscaled to normal size.

    Camera: If you see the camera icon on the screen, it means that something interesting is happening nearby. Perhaps you should look at it before you start shooting.

    Oh my god, game, stop giving me ideas on how to edit MBST files for Nintendo game's advice words.

    In the loading screen, there's more poor contrast with the words that I can't read the terrible writing. So not only is it poorly written, I can't read the badly strung words together either. Fantastic.

    I didn't know you can be reprimanded for being too late to deactivate a thermonuclear bomb in this universe. They want their thermonuclear bombs being deactivated ON SCHEDULE dammit.

    Lol a guy randomly talking about his vacation and.....hilarious monkeys like WTF.

    Advice: Don't hesitate to pull the trigger and enjoy the effect. WHAT.

    Commentator is hilarious in the written descriptions hahahaha.

    Oh in this universe, a form of greeting other people is to slam an axe in their face repeatedly and becomes a bloody face. I'll keep that in mind.

    Wow can't believe the devs either know how to translate different materials into different property values when you strike them so it explains why the helmets make a different sound when you strike as opposed to flesh or using attachment functions for gibs (are the helmets gibbable in this game?) in the case of why the helmet has different noises.
    Been through all posts from the LOOK AT IT thread, re-liking many of them. It's easily my favorite thread in Marioverse.

    funnily enough after posting my comment I found out the game was never officially released outside Eastern Europe due to Acclaim's bankruptcy so everything in that video is a fan translation(!)

    oh my god should i just comment on like everything i see while watching this video cause im having a blast <--- DO IT

    Who can tell the difference between a fan translation and an official one though? I didn't! The fanlation is still amazingly bad on a level that perfectly fits with Kreed that I'll still riff on it.

    That gracefully animated fight sequence at 30:00 with the awkward camera panning followed by an abrupt loading screen with cyan text over a white background that washes out part of the text is pure unadulterated Russian jank.

    *in the middle of working on something difficult and time-consuming*

    One person: Can you explain to me the bone limit?
    Another person: Can you record a video for me?
    Some person: Can you rig Marie over Inkling for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
    A Dude: Can you help me teach how to model import?
    A User: hey could u help me with reggie?
    Another guy: Hey I downloaded the Switch sdk do you know of any tutorials online on how to use it to create mods or could you post a quick tutorial.
    One of my IRL friends: Can you make an animation of weight lifting?

    Me: *breaks under pressure when trying help all of the above out in addition to working on the project*

    I've counted SSBU music files with the prefix "crs2", which means it's menu music and stuff. 30 of them contain variants of the main theme. 30.

    Keep in mind, that's not ALL variants of the theme in the game.
    Mario Kart 8 and Deluxe has an unused double flip hit animation.

    Reminds me of Mario Kart DS somewhat, I believe there is an animation like this one in there.

    The animation is in almost all of the 3D games that aren’t 8. It’s used when the player is hit by an explosion (Bob-Omb or Blue Shell), however the normal item hit animation is played in 8, presumably in an attempt to reduce the power of the Blue Shell.

    In Mario Kart Wii, your character flies into the air if they get hit by an explosion, which I guess is probably a leftover from Double Dash and DS. If they ever return Cataquacks from Peach Beach, I would like to see the large flip into the air again thought it was pretty funny.

    I think the animation might have used when someone used a Bullet Bill because your character flips that way when getting hit by a Bullet Bill in Wii. Only in 7 did they flip like that when they get hit by an explosion.
    I was considering taking a break from MarioWiki but there was a mod on the Super Mario Odyssey Modding Discord that pretty much forced me to post something here.
    Is there a way to keep the extended forum width option? Every time I get out of the forum, it reverts to the scrunched up forum width.
    I love Least Terns. Their breeding season is ending, so that's why I came back home earlier than normal since LGM and I barely saw any today at their breeding spot. Their last nest was sadly abandoned, and I still saw the eggs lying there.

    We did get to see a few grow up! They started as chicks and become fledglings and eventually adults so quick!

    This is a least tern brooding. I've seen it once this season where the chicks huddled under the parent's wings.

    @LeftyGreenMario Huh for some reason, when I attempted to post my status, the image broke. I was about to blame Xenforo.


    I made that three weeks ago because I thought about changing my username to Dr. Baby Peach, and I was going to use that image for my sig. But I could never decide if I really wanted to have my username changed to Dr. Baby Peach (I'm indecisive, and I worry that other people might think it's strange for a guy to have the username Dr. Baby Peach since she is a baby princess). It's been three weeks and I am still not sure if I should change my username, but I just wanted to share this image with you.

    You should change it to carry on the fad! There's already a Dr. Peach on the forum, and that account is run by a guy. I'm an adult woman running this account, so Baby Luigi is pretty much the opposite of me. I would strongly appreciate it if you did change to Dr. Baby Peach.

    Anyone who says that microtransactions in premium games are just "optional" and blame the victim entirely for falling into the trap that the publishers set up can stop playing video games for all I care.

    Anyone who says that cosmetic items have no value in video games should stay away from art as a whole.

    @LeftyGreenMario No? It was cartoony but it had a consistent driving theme (parody of 50s america) and characters who had different instantly recognizable silhouete. now it's pretty much monkey cheese

    I always thought Team Fortress 2 was always silly to begin with, so it gave us more leeway to silly outfits and hats. I feel a lot of times, alternate outfits in cartoony games tend to go into silly territory and I think Team Fortress 2, to me, is up their alley. What happened in Modern Battlefield?
