Mephiles the Dark...
What a name.
Voice acting rarely ever does anything for me... It's like the least important thing.
Maybe we need more...Chaste Arom protagonists...
You'd say...they're chaste to begin with due to most kids shows starring non-adults.
And we're half way there.
I wish I could play Min-Min, but there are too many cooks in the kitchen.
Mario made a funny. A Moray Eel.
Amore. A Moray.
Reference Point: Mario Teaches Typing 2
So...would Eggman really have risked losing a chaos emerald on the possibility of defeating Sonic?
That scene in SA2 has me wondering.
Mario Tennis Aces...got a new Opening cutscene a full year later.
Remember the most out of place voice clip of Mario saying "Luigi" from Super Star Saga.
This is the most blatant case of reused voice clips in the Mario series.
A whole 'nother year after that new scene, and I'm still wondering if the sounds editors even tried.
We have Luigi exclaiming in excitement from releasing a Tennis demon, we've got Waluigi saying "he walks funny" to nothing, and Bowser's still using Scott Burns a decade after he'd been replaced. Oh, did I mention there's no sound effects half the time???
This is an issue that carries over to the game itself- Bowser still occasionally slips back into Scott's voice for instance. And the announcer only refers to characters as "server" and "receiver" since it's the same announcer (also Scott) from all the way back to Power Tennis. Because it's too expensive to bring Charles Martinet or anyone else in to do new voice lines or update the announcer to say the new characters names, apparently.
If Aces wasn't a very solid and successful game otherwise and never made the jump to Switch, my gut feeling tells me Camelot would be the second Mario developer to go bankrupt. (Their previous Sports Superstars looked pretty cheap to me)
This website is pretty Ritzy.
Reference Point: Family Guy (original)
1. Pyramid Cave - Sonic Adventure 2 Battle 2. Sonic Boom ED version - Sonic CD 3. Toxic Caves - Sonic Generations
It wouldn't make sense to joke about how the other games technically not happening...if they're not getting rid of them.
I thought it was stupid to assume, but there it is right in the stinger... The other games never happened apparently.
Just think about it..until Mario's reaction to having to pay the Zeekeeper all of his money.
That was the last time he showed any emotion in the M&L games.
Magic is a wonderful feeling.
Reference Point: American Dad!
She looks younger though...and I assume the face is suppose to look cuter.
This movie is grand.
Now to list off all the "foods" Mario says when sleeping:
Pici, hehe Pici, hm hm
Maccheroni alla molinara
Capellini al Mario
Not all Food clearly.
If you're at all familiar with the fake Rumble Jaw teaser that preceded the AT: Distant Lands announcements...
Here are some fake mock up pieces done post announcement:
I am less invested in saying positive things about something I like than I am against hearing negative things about things I like.
This isn't a fair trade off.
Why are sequels afraid of numbers after 5?
Killing characters off via shock value is all this really has...characters being paranoid/cautious 100% through the story and actually making it out wouldn't be good writing. Also no matter how good the timing is for the character to die, it'll never not be done "unexpectedly"... Though Zombies being a background element that doesn't really mess with the foreground focus would make for the funnies.
Wow, Mario Odyssey is the first time Mario has said Peach's name since Mario Tennis.
In a game.
And the former was only because he's the announcer, making this Mario first real time period.
It particularly reminds me how in Japan, it is customary not to refer to an acquaintance by their first name unless they are very close. In every other occasion, Mario addresses Peach as "princess", so considering the whole ship teasing Odyssey had, this might've been the intention.
Super 17's death cry in Xenoverse 2 is amazing.
"This can't be happening, I'm Super Seventeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!! Ack"
