Why some People dislike the Remakes of the NES Mario Games in All Stars? i enjoyed them and i grew up with those Versions
>>
Like in all works of art it's best if you enjoy the originals rather than glib facsimiles.
>>
its a good remake and an excellent cart to own especially with smw. i get hating on the visual changes, but w/e, play the old ones then
>>
>>9609183
Fpbp.

I grew up on all stars but years later I realised I'd been playing the shittier versions. It was only good since it had lost levels and us in the west had never seen that before. It's a lot like playing old 50hz Sonic games. It's just not as good as 60hz once you've experienced it.
>>
because remakes will always be soulless. /vr/ generally willing to shit on modern remakes then it's also willing to shit on older remakes in order to stick with its guns
>>
They're not "bad" but in 2023 it ultimately comes down to preference. If you had an SNES then having four or five Mario games, especially one that never came to the west, on one cartridge was pretty neat. Now it doesn't really matter.

Chances are any device you own can play any of the original versions of these Mario games as well as All-Stars. If you want to play All-Stars then there's even romhacks that fix things like the block physics in SMB/LL.

Recently I saw a video by one of those innumerable British game essayists on YT reviewing Rayman 1 and going through every level in the game in excruciating detail, making dramatic commentary about how "hard" and unfair this game is, particularly singling out the "trigger" mechanic in the game that spawns enemies and obstacles if you pass by a certain point.

I have been hearing a lot of people say that this game was very difficult, but I remember playing this game on PC as a child and I didn't have any trouble with it at all. I mean sure it is rather challenging at points especially Cave of Skops, but to say it's "the Dark Souls of platformers" is really silly. Apparently this sentiment has been prevalent ever since it released? This is the first time I'm really noticing it. A lot of people online are saying this game was ball-bustingly hard or they never beat it. Are people just really bad at platformers these days? I don't get it. It feels more like a zoomer thing to say because I relished in the challenge. I didn't cry about having to hunt for lives or have only 3 hit points. I just found out you could have up to fucking ten (10!!!) hitpoints in the DSiWare version which I just find completely kekworthy. The trigger mechanic never bothered me either because I just learned to brace myself whenever I heard the sound cue, which is a VERY distinct sound you can hear easily ahead of time.

That leads me to my next question: Which is the definitive version of the game? Is there anything that the PS1 or Saturn versions have over the PC version? And how do you feel about Rayman Redemption?

For the millionth time: kids brains are EXTREMELY good at adapting to patterns. Like how kids can learn a language fluently in a very short time which is impossible as an adult. Kids also have unlimited time and they'll try over and over until it works. They don't get frustrated when they die because playing the game itself is already enjoyment enough. It's really not such a mystery. Our adult brains are much slower due to the neuroplasticity decaying after reaching adulthood. Not to mention all the alcohol and other stuff we use that make us slower in the long term. So yea, literal kids are better at vidya than we are. Simple as.
>>
>>9608127
I'm not sure it's necessarily "definitive" but certainly the most "unique" version is the Jaguar original. It's missing a few things, but it also strangely has a few things that were bizarrely removed in later versions. It's definitely worth checking out at least.
The most "complete" package is Rayman Collector for PC.
>>
>>9608208
So you're saying we need to breed children in a type of farm to extract their neuroplasticity?
>>
>>9608127
>Which is the definitive version of the game?
saturn/ps1/pc
each version has something over the other and no version has everything unless you're talking about the fan game thing, but that goes into OC territory

>how "hard" and unfair this game is, particularly singling out the "trigger" mechanic in the game that spawns enemies and obstacles if you pass by a certain point.
yeah this can be pretty harsh in later levels because you 100% need all the cages to fight the final boss.
>>
>>9608127
The game is trial and error but it's manageable. It only becomes hard because of the lives system, nothing in the game actually requires good execution (outside of 1 or 2 parts like the infinite hover hair sections) but there are many parts of the game where you will need luck not to die in your first attempt.

People nowadays and get frustrated when they run out of lives because they feel like they've wasted a bunch of time. Rayman has a punishing lives system because you can gain lives by collecting 100 tings but you lose those when you die, meaning you can be in a situation where you've died 2 or 3 times but are effectively 5 lives down from where you would be if you had played perfectly. The flipside of this is that it makes getting the early levels memorised very satisfying as you can reach Picture City with a huge amount of lives saved up.

>slimthicc
An oxymoron is not a useful descriptive term. I'm not telling you what to like, but that is not useful. And I've recently dated a woman who looks like that.
She lifts almost every day and eats like an NFL player. She described herself as "chubby." I'd say more like "strongfat" or really "strongthicc" might be better. She had neither rolls nor ripped definition. But she certainly was not "slim." It's not an insult to you, your waifu, or my date. (That didn't work out because she's crazy and I only bring it up because words are supposed to be useful.) Good luck with your (x)thicc waifu.

The "ParaLLEl" core is nothing other than the old Mupen64Plus-libretro core from around 2015 or so with the new ParaLLEl plugins (plus Angrylion) tacked on. It was rebranded as ParaLLEl-N64 to capitalize on the new ParaLLEl-RDP plugin developed by Themaister (the original creator of RetroArch), and was advertised essentially as a whole new emulator that would put all the others to shame. Unfortunately, it turns out it had a lot of latent core issues that were very hard to fix due to the current RetroArch lead dev making a ton of code changes and rewrites that made backporting fixes from upstream Mupen64Plus really hard to do. So another guy had to do a whole new fork based on the latest Mupen64Plus code with minimal changes plus the latest plugins, and so we got Mupen64Plus-Next, which is what you always want to use now. It's still apparently a touchy subject with the lead RA dev, too.
>>
>>9608738
They both work fine. Body Harvest has a minor issue with cutscenes such as that in the intro running too fast and heavily desyncing with the music and sound effects, but the game itself is good.

and downshift, and theres no drifting at 200kmh and other fantasy bs appart from the cars doing 340kmh, but thats just a small detail that doesn't influence on the physics, but you can't say daytona feels more real life than stcc, thats just retarded af
>how so? all stages are on tarmac and don't really feel unique from each other.
you sound like you never played stcc, in the first stage on the first corner, there a little drop that makes ur car fly if you dont take the turn correctly, and other things like that, the only track that is 100% flat is the brick wall town circuit, the others are all unique and complex, sure its no sega rally with big jumps aand shit, but its not totally flat like daytona, which feels like the car is glued on the ground.
in stcc you can actually do jumps on the kerbs like you see in some real tc races

>it kinda is, at least compared with daytona usa
coping with "g-g-git gud" isn't an argument
>you can actually feel the suspensions unlike daytona usa
fake ass bounce/roll/floatiness on cars with stiff suspension on the nicest tarmac isn't realistic, just dumb, this isn't sega rally. Daytona is better done and weight transfer actually matters when handling understeer/oversteer.
>and theres no drifting at 200kmh
did you play the game? forcing the steering at 300 km/h is enough to drift and reduce most of your speed in a few seconds, you don't even need to brake nor downshift.
>but thats just a small detail that doesn't influence on the physics
cars accelerating at a believable speed isn't a "small detail", 0 to 300 km/h in stcc is fake as fuck, it's like 4 seconds ffs. With that kind of acceleration you'd just lock the tires endlessly in daytona.
>but you can't say daytona feels more real life than stcc
not our problem if you can't handle facts.
>there a little drop that makes ur car fly if you dont take the turn correctly
which is cartoonish as fuck, yes tracks aren't 100% flats but they aren't this ridiculous either, especially for DTM cars with low clearance and stiff suspension.
>but its not totally flat like daytona, which feels like the car is glued on the ground.
that's how race cars should feel in conditions like that though, daytona did it better by not being as tryhard, ironically.

That's a cool take.
My headcanon was that the living beings in Wind Fish's dream were real living beings, but whose purpose would be to act as unaware actors in Wind Fish's dreams, and they would change into completely different beings with different personalities and memories from dream to dream.
In my sequel idea Wind Fish would somehow dream of Koholint Island again and Marin would grow awareness of who and where she is so she would attempt to escape before having her identity wiped for another dream.
DethI Is an outsider evil being who is trying to take control of Wind Fish in order to use it's powers in the real world and wasn't completelly killed by Link.

Just since this is a LA thread now, as sad as it is I really like that Link is the only "real" person in the dream. Idk how it fits into the dumb timeline, but you get the sense Link is on his way to do something important before he gets shipwrecked and Koholint is just this very ideal little paradise where he could just relax instead of worrying about being a hero, but instead he chooses to try and leave and get back to heroing. Eventually he finds out that that means the other inhabitants might disappear, but from what one of the owl statues say I think it's also implied his real body is still underwater and he will drown if he chooses not to still leave. A lot of the inhabitants of the island really don't seem to have a concept of a world beyond the island, or a time before their "now". That's also why I like Marin telling Link that he has to remember her song, because in the end after Link wakes up you hear it, and I've always seen that as Link remembering her, which is what makes her real. Like a kind "all good things must come to an end" moral, like the feeling of how your hometown might not feel as homey anymore now that all this time has past and your not a kid. Be happy it happened, not sad that its over. Very melancholy (but I'm a sap who likes that kinda stuff)

I genuinely believe that the people crying about collectors are either third worlders, literal teenagers who don't have jobs or make minimum wage, and legitimate losers who are older than 22 and work at Walmart/Amazon/Ikea/McDonald's/some gig job like Uber or Door Dash. Anyone with a read job can afford whatever they want, and if anyone is truly content with emulators like they claim to be then they wouldn't be so upset about other people who choose to collect, because if you're actually content then other people's choices won't bother you.
