I don't get why we still have the New Super Mario Bros series and not a more original 2D Mario game.
What I don't get is why we haven't had a new 2D Mario game since 2013's New Super Luigi U. We usually get one within the first year or so of a system launch. Obviously we got Mario Odyssey in year 1, and NSMBU Deluxe was released earlier this year, but I'm surprised we haven't got a brand new 2D Mario game recently.
It'd be cool to see a return to the original style 2D Mario games, however I don't really see this happening as we're in 2019 and 16-bit gfx aren't going to be their first choice.
Both Super Mario Makers. The second one has a story mode with like 100 levels.
I know SMM2 has a story mode, but some levels aren't as traditional as the normal games. It would be cool to get an official, full traditional Mario game, just like old times. I'm sure they've got something coming up, but for now it seems as though we're moving more into a sandbox player-made series.

"Some levels aren't as traditional" is a fairly subjective argument. I think it's a very good thing that those levels weren't "traditional". You can only have so many skewer towers before it gets boring.

Considering SMM2 sold half the copies in the first 3 days after release that NSMBU did in its lifetime, I wouldn't be surprised if Mario contiuned focusing on user creativity in the future. Donkey Kong Country as a first (second) party series has the better platformer gameplay anyway, so it gives that more franchise more well-deserved breathing room.

I don't get why people in both the SMBX forums & the community Discord server are complaining about me taking longer on my custom Mega Drive/Genesis custom graphics for about 2-3+ years! Can't I just work at my own pace gdi?

you posted this in reaction to someone just asking "how long do you plan on working on this background"

Yeah, pretty much. But in my defense, I have irl stuff to do everyday (Example: Paid work)

I also work 9-5 with a 2 hour commute but you don't see me using it as an excuse for slow work speed. There's nothing wrong with working slowly or having better things to do, but perhaps the winning move is to not try to provide a service you cannot keep up with.

another winning move is to not crave for attention as much as you do all the time (note: that doesn't mean to not showcase anything, it means to not be greedy for attention)

I completely agree! It's a shame that we might not be getting 2D Mario games for a while, and a new 2D game might be even more popular than the first NSMB game.

Here's a little something I don't get recently:

I tweeted at some guy's tweet on Twitter about 1 specific episode of one of the beloved children's cartoon, Kids Next Door, being "Ahead of its time". And it has a clip from one of KND's classical episodes* in the tweet.

I tweeted a reply saying that while growing up, my mother banned me from watching that classical episode of KND, and 100+ people liked it! :o
Here's the link to the tweet if you're curious what I mean!


*If any of y'all were wondering what episode it was, it's about Bras being called in the KND universe: "Battle Ready Armor".

I don't get why I can sort of play Terry but am terrible at Ryu in SSBU. The thing is that they're both from fighting games with similar inputs. So that's something.

Maybe it's a learning curve for you....

But if he had posted that with the normal font colour (black), it would've been harder to understand what he had meant

Funny you should say that, traditional fighting games require a big learning curve, and its interesting that Terry, Ryu and Ken all have a learning curve to follow in Smash, just as they would in their original games.

I seriously don't get the "Graphic Violence" in TV-MA rated non-animated TV shows and movies. I do understand graphic violence in MA rated cartoons and Japanese anime*, but why non-animated shows all of a sudden?!?

*Want examples of MA rated cartoons & anime? I'll tell ya a few:
  • South Park
  • Superjail
  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force
  • Squidbillies
  • Tokyo Ghoul
  • Demon Slayer
  • Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Rick & Morty (Sometimes)

I don't get why Gene Simmons (The lead singer of the band, Kiss) eats his cereal with ice cubes in it for breakfast*! My guess is he's living the hardcore life.... IDK




*I learned that from Twitter a few days ago
