  2. SEGA's big announcement :)

      I look at that thing up close and the first thought to pop in my head was "I could swallow that"

      You know what, I thought they were going to do something stupid like announce a partnership with Sony or some shit so I’ll take this.

      Beats the E3 where the main thing they brought was a toaster.

      The big announcement is tomorrow. This is likely something else.

      Unless they chose to unveil this a day early, I'm not sure.

  3. Today’s my Mom’s birthday. Usually I would get her a cake but ya know...recent events and because the ones they sell at my job aren’t good I bought her apple pie because she really loves the ones they sell at my job

  4. Happy birthday buddy!

      Thanks alot Deji!

  5. Thinking about yeah why are so many people confident that an SA1 remake is coming? Like there's no evidence or anything to support it literally all we got was Iizuka talking about how he saw the technical flaws in the game and would like to remake it a few years ago.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i don't think there's anything to it beyond remakes being a relatively common thing at this point and SA being a game that's generally liked and old/janky enough to "need" a remake. i wouldn't be surprised if they do jump on the bandwagon and announce a remake, but i don't see any real reason to expect it.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      This series has a real nag for going after current trends. Remakes are happening all over so, tbh, I don't know why people are going out of their way to say it won't happen.

      Spoiler

      (and I know it's been directly proven to not be the case but it really does feel like Sega has put more of an emphasis on Adventure call-outs recently than before. it's a baseless feeling, but one that myself and apparently many others do have nonetheless)

      Personally though, I just find the idea to be a much more telling test than seeing them fumble with something new currently. Not only do we get a direct comparison to really dig in just as how far gone they currently are, but it'll also really show where their heads are at in multitude of categories as SA1 did a lot of shit (story events, game mechanics, level scale, ect.). If they can't make a competent remake of it... there's no hiding imo.

      No "it only actually had a year in development" or "they were trying something new" excuses.

       

      also, i just like adventure, sue me

      There has been lots of hints for the last couple years that Sonic Team MIGHT be interesting in doing a Sonic Adventure remake. Saying folk are seeing something that isn't there is silly.

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I like adventure as well it's in my top Sonic game and I would love nothing more than for it to be remade. I just feel like we're just grasping at straws and all the "adventure teases" aren't really teases at all. 

    5. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      It doesn't personally matter to me if they do it or not, i have nothing against it for sure. But i seem enough hints or even "evidence" to say there be a good chance for it. I do mean more then a few signs also.

  6. Not sure why people think that you can't tell an interesting Mario story that isn't an RPG. It's not like they're plenty of characters though the series history that can could use. 

    Should clarify in terms of other mediums like a comic book or a movie. You can tell more than "Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser" 

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      You can tell interesting stories in the games. Hell, they have before with Galaxy.

      Thing is, they literally just don't want to most of the time.

    2. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      You can, Shigeru just won't let you. Even what little we got in Mario Galaxy had to be practically hidden from him until almost the verge of going gold. I get that gameplay always comes first and all, but we've been doing the same song and dance for 37 years now and it's gotten extremely silly.

    3. Celestia

      Celestia

      I don't think anyone is actually under the impression you literally can't do more with the stories, especially in adaptations, but I understand the concern that Miyamoto and other Nintendo higher ups will rein it in.

      I don't expect that to happen with the movie though, if only because of necessity and expectations (which I assume is why the RPGs were more detailed...uh, at first).

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      @Blacklightning the funny thing is with Odyssey it was literally the first time Miyamoto backed off and literally let them do whatever the hell that they wanted and look how that turned out 

    5. Plumbers_Helper

      Plumbers_Helper

      As a long time Mario fan on the internet, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to hear someone say that on an internet forum. I think people are often too quick to latch on to Shigeru Miyamoto's view of story in video games, ironically something he helped popularize. I'm cautiously optimistic for that upcoming animated Mario movie.

      Super Mario Adventures was of course great, but I got so much enjoyment from the cartoons as a kid. So many hero characters growing up were always tall, buff dudes that felt larger then life, but Mario was always special to me because he was just a regular guy: A poor plumber from Brookyln fighting for good because no one else will. I always found that inspiring, as corny and badly animated as the Mario cartoons were - they are what made me a fan of Mario in the first place. I didn't get a Super Nintendo until after the cartoons disappeared from television.

      Brooklyn Bound was always one of my favorite episodes, it dealt with how Mario & Luigi felt about being lost in another world and having to fight war after war with no way to get home...and what they would do if they had that chance to go home again. I wish the series would have been more like that episode, focusing more on the characters' thoughts and feelings then on parody after parody. I'm such a dork for the Mario cartoons that I even have one of those bootleg plushes that resemble Bowser's appearance in the cartoons.

      Sorry for gushing about the cartoons, they've always been a childhood favorite of mine.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      I'd say platformers can and have told interesting stories.

      Galaxy as people have mentioned.

      Sunshine's story was simple, but still charming and more complex than just "jump on goombas, beat bowser, wahoo" by giving Bowser Jr. his own misguided motivations in the game.

      I'd argue Odyssey had a decent story too. It's goofy, sure, but it's full of character and even has direct continuity nods to Donkey Kong of all things, with Mario going back to the town of his very first game.

      The thing about these examples is, they just have less space to tell a story than RPGs do. RPGs by their very nature are loaded with text, which gives the designers more time to flesh out the characters and world. Mario stories can be engaging and fun outside of RPGs, but there's a reason the RPGs (at least, the older ones) stand head and shoulders above the rest of the series when it comes to storytelling; the conventions of the genre simply allow more room for it.

      @Plumbers_Helper

      I couldn't agree more.

      I've come to terms with Nintendo's stance on the Mario Bros.' birth. But I grew up with the Brooklyn backstory and in my opinion it is 100% more interesting than Yoshi's Island; It makes Mario and Luigi just a pair of regular joes who stumble into heroism, as opposed to being a couple of magically destined babies who were prophesied from birth to be heroes. I feel like it also gave them a slight edge, a bit of a culture, a sort of tangible way that they were different from the other denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom. As people who didn't grow up in a whimsical land of magic, they'd have a different perspective on the world than the other characters, and I always found that interesting.

      I really would like to think that, shortly after their early childhood in the Mushroom Kingdom, the brothers moved to the Metro Kingdom - where they opened a plumbing shop (Mario Bros. Plumbing was in the artbook for Odyssey, so it was at least on Nintendo's minds!), Mario briefly dated Pauline, the events of the original Donkey Kong, Wrecking Crew, and Mario Bros. happened, etc. - before they heard about Bowser attacking their childhood home and boogied back to the Mushroom Kingdom to lend a hand. At least this way, Mario's and Luigi's Brooklyn upbringing can have a kind of broad-strokes basis in the game universe.

  7. Pretty much how I felt. Like people kept asking to see Metal Sonic, the death egg, super sonic, shadow etc and it's like there's clearly a plan for this universe I don't want them to put all their eggs in one basket.
  8. By 7 I really hope that means: people who worked on fan games and learned to become professional developers like the Mania staff rather than "anybody who's ever made a fan game is eligible"

      Sean

      Even putting aside how ridiculous "SEGA HIRE THIS MAN" is, I would prefer it if fans just kept making fan games without being under the watchful, controlling eye of Sega.

      Anyway I'm going with 2 and 8.

      From what I played on Apple Arcade months ago, it's just more of the same Shantae. That is to say, really bland gameplay, good music/visuals, girls in skimpy clothing and plenty of back-tracking.

    8. Sean

      Sean

      I'm pretty excited to play it. Shantae is one of my favorite "good but not great" series (if that makes any sense) and I think despite how HGH turned out, Wayforward is really good at listening to feedback and striving to make their next game better than the last.

    9. Dejimon11

      I think those days are behind us. Nintendo is happy with their current mascots, Microsoft seemingly doesn't care about that market, and Sony has mascots but hasnt really been using them aside from Ratchet sparsely. Aside from the big 3, most gaming companies seem to be interested in nostalgic games, sports, or hyper realistic experiences.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Believe that's easier said than done. I don't really think it's by chance that we have so few and have, let's be real here, only one actually doing well. It's a huge task creating a character that's both likable to a large audience and can be placed in that many genres. Hell, it isn't even something any of these three series aimed for in the first place. That kind of stuff has to come up naturally.

      Add in that it more than likely requires a substantial financial backing to support that many experimental titles (seeing as all three of these had the backing of a full on first party at one point or another... also since the only one currently doing well is still benefiting from one) and idk, seems a bit out there imo. Would probably be simpler to take some other, pre-established, well known character and start making games for them.

      That being said though, isn't this already a thing for, like, most of Nintendo's IPs?

    5. Cayenne

      Cayenne

      I think that Mario, Sonic and Crash were the right mascots in the right time. Those three characters introduced a mix of technology and gameplay styles that were very different and deep for their respective console generations.

      Platformers were also a very popular video game genre when they reached their stardom. While we are seeing a resurgence of platformers now, personally, I wouldn't say that they are that popular compared to what they were before.

      IMO, a mascot will need to have four things to be on the same level of those guys:

      - A uncommon and fun mix of ideas and game design; 

      - An appealing character design;

      - An interesting world;

      - Tendencies from the current years.

    9. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @Dejimon11What I mean is, I don’t think any company ever went in on a game mascot thinking that they could leverage it in other genres.

      Like I doubt anyone at Sega had something like Sonic Chronicles anywhere on their radar back then lol.

    10. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      "Mario, Sonic and Crash"

      Pretty sure you meant Mario. Sonic and Mega Man. Crash was never at their level of appeal. Still decent, but not THAT high.

    11. Tracker_TD

      crash vs Mario vs sonic | Consolle

      Crash was the de-facto mascot of the Playstation; he was absolutely on-line with, if not well beyond Mega Man, and I say that as someone who far, far prefers MM to Crash. Hell, nowadays I'd argue he's jumped back to the kind of popularity Sonic used to enjoy, thanks to the wildfire success of N.Sane.

    12. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Mega Man honestly isn't as popular as many people make it out to be. With Crash at least you can say he was easily recognizable in the 90s and considered to the playstation mascot. And apparently was more popular than Sonic in Japan. 

    13. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      There are still mascots that create multimedia franchises, they just aren't really cartoon characters

    14. mayday2592

      mayday2592

      @Waveshocker Sigma Uhhhh yeah he was....  Critically acclaimed trilogy  that sold extremely well,to the point where the remakes sold over 10 million units.  Popular enough to the point he was considered a major playstations icon, had a kart racer that topped most of Mario's efforts, and plus he was one the few western characters to be massive in Japan.

      Saying Mario/Sonic/Mega Man were THE platforming trio in the 90s is like saying Call of Duty/Battlefield/Gal Gun are the THE top FPS games right now

  13. It is kind of hard to take the statement about quality over quantity seriously.  

    They've had a track record of saying this in the past and then blowing it. Remember how they removed every negatively rated game on Meta critic off store shelves and we're riding high with the positive reception only for them to come crashing with Boom?

    Or how they delayed TSR for quality reasons and the game is still a technical mess with shooty online? 

    Hell I remember when they were doing those stupid clues for a year and one of them was a morse code basically saying "you told us to take our time and we're doing it"

  14. I don't know what it is about youtubers that try so hard to be funny that jut irritates me. Like just get on with the point you're trying to make you don't have to waste time dwelling on a joke. 

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I think it annoys everyone. I call it the Doug Walker Effect for obvious reasons. Youtube content is infinitely more enjoyable when you don't try to force anything, yet too many people fall into that trapping.

      Although lately I've just been getting annoyed by all the in-video sponsor shoutouts. I guess it's to deal with adblock and I just skip it at least.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      To be fair given how Youtube has been treating their content creators them relying on sponsors to help make ends meat is perfectly justifiable

    3. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I know, it's just a pet peeve. If I was in their position I'd probably do the same. I'm just glad not as many are sponsored by Raid Shadow Legends anymore.

    4. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      At least Caddicarus doesn’t try too hard to be funny. His videos are a perfect mix between seriousness and funniness.

      Any funniness that’s present is a sight to behold.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      This is specifically why I can’t watch or like Antdudes videos. He keeps trying this “awkward/self deprecating humor, be silent for a bit before continuing” thing, and it is just cringe worthy and not funny

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I watch AntDude for his opinions and thoughts, but his videos aren't funny and fall into the awkward category way too often. Not the self-deprecating and awkward funny he's going for, just uncomfortable.

      My absolute least favourite is the skit that's shown up on virtually every YouTubers channel when they do a collaborative video.

      "Oh hi X. What are you doing here?" 

      "I was looking for the bathroom and think I took a wrong turn and ended up on your channel. LOL"

      Shut the fuck up. Any time they they these skits it comes off terribly. AntDude did one with NitroRad where they had a rivalry going on and it was unwatchable.

      I don't mind a bit of personal humour, but most of these guys aren't comics and fail miserably in their attempts to inject humour into their content.

    7. Supah Berry

      Drinking game- Everytime a youtube review lingers on a single shot, start chugging down your shot and don't stop till it cuts. Chug faster if it zooms in, and/or gains a red/deep fried filter.

       

      You'll be nauseous when your through, even if you chugged on water. Do not attempt.
