Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

It also makes me think, what if Tippi ends up dying first of some unforeseen cause, like contracting cancer or dying in a car accident? How would Bleck react? Would he try destroying the world again?
 

You Watanabe

Koops, King of Cowards.
Oh, he would try again.

Good riddance, I say. The world was saved the moment he sacrificed himself.

Oh yeah, about the sacrifice, he only willingly did it because Tippi was with him too. It's like... he's willing to put his girl's life on the line if it meant they could be together. Who said you needed to do that to stop world destruction anyway, it's like this plot point was made specifically to have them sacrifice themselves together, this is so fucking bs. An excuse to let him have what he wants. Ugh.

MarioWiki on Tippi: "She is shown to be very caring and kind."

Also MarioWiki on Tippi: "Tippi recalls the last of her lost memories and finally learns to her horror that Blumiere is indeed Count Bleck. Despite this knowledge, however, she keeps her past a secret from the heroes as they travel through Castle Bleck to defeat the count, knowing that only his death can end the prophecy of destruction."

In Bleck's defense he was willing to let himself be killed alone to fix the whole mess.

That being said it's still a weak motivation for destroying the entire multiverse.

It tells me that Bleck is self-aware of what he's done rather than be possessed, which doesn't excuse what he's done. I guess he attempted a redemption which I think reflects on his character a bit better, but Tippi still wants to marry him after this? Why?

Ah, but no, my friend, you don't get it. It's because it's T R U E L O V E. And when it comes to that you just become stupid when it comes to your partners. Like, your brain stops functioning. Only thing keeping you alive is that beast locked up in the rib cage. That, honey, is what you call impulse.

Ok no, seriously, why? "Oh, darling it's ok, I forgive you. After all you only tried to destroy the world, I'm sure you didn't mean it, right?" Fucking hypocrite. I'll bet you the country's economy that if it wasn't her true love trying to wipe out the universe for better reasons than... her, she would not hesitate to call him names and insult him and tell Mario to kill him or whatever. The only reason she felt remorse in the first place is because "that's Blecky Boi I'm fighting, waaah!" I don't even hate Tippi at all but like... Why?

"Just as no one can ease the tempest that rages in my suffering heart..."

Everytime I read this line it makes me want to punch him.

"She cannot be replaced. You could never hope to do so, Nastasia. To be sure... She is gone... Gone from all worlds, never to return..."

The jackass won't even consider the possibility that he might find someone else

I don't think it's wrong to be loyal to one person. If you love her too much, fine, stay loyal. What is wrong is thinking it's ok to kill everyone because you love that person and are "loyal" to them.

I like the Inside Drifting Bikes in Mario Kart 8. I'm not sure if this is unpopular, but I never see anyone use them so I assume it must be.

Also, while I'm talking about Mario Kart 8, I'd just like to say that it's better then I've previously implied it is, it's not my favourite in the series, but it's still a lot of fun.

I like the inside drifting bikes too, except the Yoshi Bike, that should go in a rubbish heap.

The selection is very limited. Sport Bike, Comet, Jet Bike, the Master Cycle, and literal trash is just four in a game with like 20 kart parts. I just prefer the Mach Bike, Sneakster, Dolphin Dasher, Jet Bubble, the Spear, and the lesser inward bikes that I won't name them because they look ugly, to the paltry selection in Mario Kart 8.

Algún problema, señorita?
It's so sad that Mario Galaxy wasn't a non linear game like SM64. It had a perfect, grand presentation for one.

Also Freezeflame Galaxy is the greatest galaxy.

The 1993 Mario movie isn't all that bad, IMO. It definitely strays quite a lot from the source material and is far from the best film ever, but I honestly enjoyed it for what it was.

I had fun with SMG2. I don’t understand why people consider it to be as great as the first game, or why other people even have the balls to say it’s better than the first game.

Half the level design is just been there, done that and the music is basically what you’ve already heard from the first game. The only standouts are Melty Molten Galaxy, Bowser’s Galaxy Generator and the Final Bowser Battle.

The hub world is nowhere near as imaginative as Rosalina’s Observatory as it’s just...a ship the shape of Mario’s head. And Luba himself...how do you go from an awesome princess with an emotional childhood backstory to a space version of Patrick Star?!

As for the story itself...should have been the plot to a New Super Mario Bros game. In the first game, Bowser was raining destruction all over the Mushroom Kingdom. Here, he turns big (No explanation, no build up, you just see him bigger) and captures Peach so she could make him a...cake. I know I shouldn’t complain, because it seems like a Bowser thing, but that shouldn’t be a story for a sequel to an epic Mario game!

Overall, I feel that Galaxy 2 is just a glorified expansion.

I guess it's more prevalent than you think but it's still common to also hear people say "nah it sucks ass" in response.

People constantly cite Galaxy 2 as a game that built on the first one and had better level design than the first but they never provide any concrete examples of an actual improvement as opposed to just more levels. Not even concept wise Galaxy 2 really does anything different as they rehashed a lot from the first one. Beat Block is one of the few neat things Galaxy 2 introduced but that's hardly enough evidence for the conclusion that Galaxy 2's level design is superior.

Really what settings are people enabling in Galaxy 2 to make it seem so much better than the rehash recycled drivel I've experienced?

The main thing I hear about from people with Galaxy 2 is all the levels in World S. So to summarize: Galaxy 2 is superior to the first game because of post-game content.

But not even post-game is that great. Galaxy 2 repeated the problem of the first Galaxy having a ton of filler content post-game. World S was more meaningful than the trial Galaxies, but both games utterly fail and it's not to Galaxy 2's credit for having only marginally better post-game content, which even that is debatable.

Koops, King of Cowards.
I don't even think the Trial galaxies are bad. My least favorite one of them is the Bubble challenge thing and even then I think it has cool things.

And I have absolutely no qualms whatsoever with the motion controls of the star ball or Ray. I don't get why people find them that hard to pick up.

And I am not saying this just to defend my favorite Mario game, I genuinely think this.
