E3 2014: I'm Unreasonably Excited About Mario Maker [Updated]

davybot:

" I spoke with producer Takashi Tezuka about Mario Maker today. Speficially, I asked if the two art styles available in the show floor demo — the original Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. U — would be the extent of the looks available for level design. Will we see Super Mario Bros. 3? Super Mario World?  

"Obviously, there will be other graphical styles included," Tezuka said. "And nothing’s been decided yet, but I’d also like to include other graphics that aren’t Mario." Would that mean that if Legend of Zelda graphics were included, the game would let you design top-down stages, I asked?  

"No, it won’t be top-down," he said. "It’s always going to be a 2D platformer." However, players can expect more level design elements than those included on the show floor. Tezuka said he plans to integrate more enemy and object types than what appeared in the E3 demo, though he doesn’t want the palette of options to become overwhelming.  

Tezuka also emphasized the inspiration Mario Maker draws from Mario Paint and says that he hopes to include features similar to those of that Super NES classic, including a music composition feature. As for Internet sharing and Miiverse integration, Tezuka admits those details are still being worked out as well, but that he’s mindful of players’ desire to show off their level designs to friends.”

aahhhhHHHHH THIS GAME JUST GOT A LOT MORE EXCITING YES PLEASE I NEED THIS NOW

I fully expect Kaizo Mario to be recreated using this within weeks of it being live.

So, I finally decided to not let my overwhelming depression kick my ass any longer and used that boost in super badass energy to finally hammer out the idea I want to make a game out of… and that idea is ActRaiser, except in JRPG format.

See, the idea of an angel/genie/prophet gaining the powers of the gods to revive the planet after a great evil overtook it sounds like an amazing idea to me. The gods wouldn’t have been able to do anything due to a non-interventionist policy, and the only reason this is happening is because the demi-gods are not bound to the same rules. So, you play as a mortal demi-god set on a quest to restore and return the planet back to the humans, by recruiting strong beings from across the land to take out the forces that took over after the gods went away.

Its a bit convoluted at the moment, so I have quite a bit of refining to do, but I think it will be quite a fun ride to make, especially as I learn Ruby a bit more and get into scripting for various things I may need in RPG maker.

In other news, I have 2 new videos on my youtube channel. The first is a vulgar look at The Ship with a good friend of mine, and the second one is a relaxed playthrough of Lifeless Planet. It will be released weekly, and I’ve already got the next 5 weeks of footage done and ready for upload. It takes a whole lot off my back for that to be the case.

Anyways, miss you awesome folks, and I’m always up for a conversation through Kik, or here if you want.

I wanna act…

Ever since I was a wee little one, I have always been a performer. I would sing to the top of my lungs, and dance, and play pretend all the time, eventually culminating in my joining a few bands in high school, and becoming the DM of a Local D&D group for a while as well. Lately, I’ve been doing Let’s Plays on Youtube, and I get really into them sometimes, even if I don’t get many views for the effort.

All that was said to say this: I still wanna act, and sing. So badly even, that I’ve been in 4 bands since high school, and I’ve been looking into possible joining a local theater and seeing if I can do anything, even be an extra. This all came up the other night when me and my SO were talking about our dreams, and the overall incompatibility between our dreams. Mine, is to be a performer of some sort, making my living entertaining others and allowing them to experience emotions through my work, while her dream is the get married, settle down, and basically have the 9 to 5 drab life that I have been falling into but running away from all the same.

I don’t think that I’ll be able to achieve my dream any time soon, and it could very well be a one time thing, where I go do something, get it out of my system and then go back to being a boring tech support guy. However, there is that chance, however small, that I can make something of it, and become at least known in local circles. I wanna shoot for that chance…

Really?

The morning of date night, and my car decides to overheat on the way to work this morning, after I checked the fluids a week ago. Fucking hell, am I not allowed one decent night out without spending money on this junker car?

Not happy at all about this. Gonna put water in it when it cools off, and see if that allieviates the issue for the evening. Hopefully I’ll be able to actually do what I want tonight.

School stabbing spree: 20 hurt in Pittsburgh-area bloodbath
(Photo: NBC News)
As many as 20 students were hurt, some with life-threatening wounds, when a classmate went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

proof if you take away guns, people will still find ways to hurt each other

Yes, but let’s consider that for a moment: Thus far, there have been no deaths. All the victims are expected to live. In the Newtown, Conn. shooting, Adam Lanza killed twenty-six people in less than five minutes. Not maimed — killed.
A gun is going to make a person more lethal, in less time, from further away. With other methods, like a knife, the attacker must get close to their intended targets (versus spraying bullets indiscriminately), and this gives opportunity for others to run and/or subdue the assailant.
When the principal at Newtown tried to stop Lanza, she was murdered. The vice principal in this case was able to tackle the suspect and he was cuffed by the school resource officer. Yes, people will still find ways to hurt each other. There’s no reason to make it easier for them to do so.
Please don’t claim this attack “proves” gun control proponents wrong, or firearms advocates right. I will admit, my first thought was, “Thank God he didn’t have a gun” — however, when are we going to have a discussion about what leads a high school sophomore to this kind of attack as a solution? Or anyone, for that matter? Perhaps he had access to guns and maybe he didn’t. We don’t know.
The undeniable truth here is that for whatever reason, he chose knives, and that choice, in this instance, may have made it more difficult for him to rack up the kind of body count we have seen as a nation in similar mass attacks when a gun is used.

I’ve tended to find that, after shooting sprees, victims don’t post selfies of themselves recovering in hospital. Mainly because they go to the morgue, not the wards.

^ Ahem.

Actually, taking away firearms won’t prevent people from committing acts of heinous violence. It also doesn’t mean that they will be easier to stop because they can’t shoot you from 20 feet away.
A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion. Practically any object can kill if its put into the wrong hands…and in those situations, it won’t matter if they do it from 20 feet away or from 2 feet. If you aren’t prepared for the encounter, you will likely get severely injured and/or die. 
Do you all think that it’s that simple? “Oh he has a knife, he has to get close so it will be harder for him to hurt us.” Do you honestly think those kids in that school had some kind of knife defense training or any self defense training at all in order to prevent them from panicking the moment they realize they might die? Do you think they know how to properly disarm an attacker who is holding a knife and subdue them accordingly? What about the teachers? Don’t assume that because its a melee weapon that you have an advantage. 
Stop trying to force the blame on guns. Blame the people using the guns, and other weapons, to harm others.

hey dawg i’m a united states marine and lemme tell youwe are armed with firearms for a reasonthey make us more efficient. they make us more dangerous. they keep us out of melee range of the enemy. we are able to use fire and maneuver (thanks to the distance) to close with and destroy the enemyif you really believe knives are as dangerous as guns, explain to me why we aren’t just deployed with ka-bars ya fucking shitting infantbe intellectually honest, at the very least. it’s really not much to ask, i promise

And this ^

The pro-gun crowd has been jerking off on this story all day. This Marine two responses above me lays it out pretty nicely: Yes, there is a BIG fucking difference between a weapon that injured 17 people and one that killed 26.
“A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion.” Yeah, bro. Sooooooo ridiculous to imply that an incident in which no one was killed is better than an incident in which a number of people were killed.
