Shiggs is working in the next platform Mario for the DS, which ideas would you give him?
I think that the bosses from Mario Bros. 2 should return. As well as old power ups like the Tanooki suit and the kuribo shoe from SMB3 and a level using the astronaut suit of Mario Land 2 and F.L.U.D.D as an extra weapon.
Since the first Mario, the saga has grown a lot and many details can be reused from old games to give that special feeling of nostalgia we all like.
But not only old things, Miyamoto is known for his surprises and I am sure that this game will be full of them.
Any other ideas?

Don't be so sure... a little bird tells me that NST are making it. NST stand for rehashing old ideas. Sometimes they work well, sometimes not.
Track record: - Bionic Commando: Elite Forces (rehash of NES game) - Ridge Racer 64 (rehash of Playstation games with very little new content) - Crystalis (rehash of NES game) - Pokemon Puzzle League (rehash of Panel de Pon/Tetris Attack with 3D mode added) - Wave Race: Blue Storm (rehash of Wave Race 64, but not as good) - Nintendo Puzzle Collection (big remake) - 1080 Avalanche (rehash of 1080, apparently not as good as the original) - Mario vs. Donkey Kong (rehash of Donkey Kong on Game Boy, but surprisingly done very well) - And all the recent emulated conversions... Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition, Classic NES series (I think...) and so on.
I always get a little disappointed whenever I hear NST are working on a game. I know it probably won't be as good as it could have been if being developed by another Nintendo developer. They've surprised me once or twice, but on a whole they aren't reknowned for quality (aside from the quality they pinched from the original game they are remaking).
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.

Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.
