[Nintendo] Let's do the odyssey

Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular

Mario Odyssey is out in about 8 hours and has been widely proclaimed "extremely unbelievably good except for the motion controls"

Let's enjoy the rad jazz tune that is apparently the main theme of the game?

    It sounds like there is a non motion alternative for the 360 hat spin at least, by spinning the stick before throwing the hat

    So there's a couple specialty hat throws (don't know if they're ever required), and some possession special abilities (that are required for a small selection of moons) that need motion controls

    I can't wait to see all the crazy weird stuff people figure out with the hat throws. Like, fiddling with the controls to make it do interesting animations or flashy movement. Maybe even finding ways to break the gameplay with it or something. We can call them hat tricks.

    these motion controls don't look too bad.

    seem to be mostly secondary stuff

    I'm fine with a game deciding to use motion controls in some way as a conscious and non-negotiable design choice , but I can understand it being frustrating for people who want to play in portable mode. Odyssey isn't the type of game I'd want to ever play on a small screen, but I know others aren't bothered by that.

    For the record the motion controls work much better with a joycon in each hand. That's the way they had us play it during the demo.

    The motion controls were bad when I played on split Joycons but since they seem mostly mitigated by playing with a Pro, I am happy

    Sucks about people playing handheld

    Yeah but I hate that control scheme and do not want to use it.

    Hey. Five and a half hours.

    Mario's excited, see for yourself:

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    They put me on a new shift this week, normal person hours, getting off at 5:30 so that's cool

    It also means I am way too tired to think about the midnight launch

    But tomorrow

    Oh tomorrow

    he got tired of shouting FUCK EM at random interns every time he was asked about the snes mini inside NoA headquarters so he had to branch out.

    You don't have to wait for her to throw the big bomb that stays out. You can reflect the small bombs she throws before that.

    I've learned that you cannot possess Hat Dog

    Which makes sense, as he's already wearing a hat, and the idea of a dog wearing two hats is just absurd

    hat-wearing is the primary defense against being possessed by mario's nightmarish hat-shaped cordyceps parasite

    Hat dog is clearly already possessed.

    Multiple sentient spirits can not inhabit the same physical body at the same time. This is basic metaphysics here people.

    The only exception of course being gestalt demonic entities.

    i'm gonna say that this preventive hat news is proof that the dog really is the hero we need to protect us from the Hat

    all hail dog

    When was the last time your Switch was fully powered down and not just in sleep? Rebooting it fully solves a lot of weird issues

    I mean, servers could also just be slammed but that seems uncharacteristically bad for them
