How did you know to jump into the paintings? There was literally no indication.
Yeah wtf, I've based my entire hate for nintendo on the fact they sold this "mario: 64 seconds of gameplay" shit, jumping through paintings sounds cool, but is there a purpose behind it?
I let a younger cousin play the DS version some years ago, and she couldn't figure out what to do.
What's funny is, she HAD been trying to jump into the first picture, she reported.
How could she possibly have, I wondered, and asked her to show me.
>she runs up to the picture
>pushing the wall still running
>jumps while still being right at the wall
>mario just jumps straight upwards, not moving an inch towards the wall
God fucking damn it, this generation is done for.
They're mongoloid the lot of them.
I was 5.
Had my da read me what road said when I entered and went straight to bobomb battlefield after working out the janky analogue stick.
We don't need this thread every day.
How did you know to jump into the goombas? There was literally no indication
How did you know to punch them in the face? There was literally no indication.
How were you supposed to know to use the analog stick and the A button to navigate this menu? There's no indication.
>people have forgotten about instructions manuals
How were you supposed to know to press up and down?
STOP POSTING THIS EVERYDAY HOLY SHIT
THE GAME IS DECADES OLD WHO GIVES A FUCK
Dang that takes me back.
It's still my favorite game of all time, no matter how much nostalgia is responsible for that.
Manual tells you
The note things on the wall tell you in the very first room
I know this is VERY old bait. like years old but I have to let newfags know at least.
The room is designed to be symmetrical and center aligned, stairs walking up to a platform and there's a giant ass painting on the wall that ripples when you touch it. I FUCKING WONDER.
wait i was supposed to jump in the paintings ?
when i looked it up it said i had to glitch using the stairs and beated it this way
fuck charles for selling me this and not telling me i had to jump in paintings
The worst part about this bait is that there literally is. There are Toads that tell you.
The only thing I had trouble with was Snowman's Land. I thought the mirror room was just there for looks.
>beat the game
>see Mario on top of a giant snowman
I had to ask my friend where that was at. I felt stupid missing that.
Im still mad about this shit
It was cryptic as fuck
As a 6 year old I was capable of figuring out the paintings were portals within a minute of being in the castle. How can my 6 year old self be smarter than the fully grown playtesters of today?
very interesting idea OP....
I imagine everyone either saw a friend do it or heard about it. But if you took someone who had never played or heard of SM64. How long would it take..? I dont imagine long, since the paitings were the centerpiece of each room.
Now those secret rooms and areas, God knows if now for word of mouth would have remained hidden forever.
We've had this thread before
>Learn to read the manual, you nigger
>I'm certain a toad or a signpost said to do so in the Castle
>Your friends would have told you, except you don't have any
>Yes, that’s right. If you play the game for the first time with no prior knowledge, you're going to run into the first Goomba and lose a turn.
>Right, which is why you have to teach the player in a natural way that they need to avoid them by jumping over them.
>Then when the player tries to jump and avoid them, there are going to be times when they get it wrong and end up stamping on the Goomba. By doing that, they learn in a natural way that by stamping on them, you can defeat them.
The little faggot who owned the console constantly took the controller away to "show me things"
Fuck you Ryan.
You're a stupid fucking faggot.
There are only so many buttons to press, and none of them do anything other than up/down.
If you got stuck on this trying to force it by jumping, you were honestly developmentally challenged as a child.
>School always taught me that Stars are hot
>Now this game expects me to touch one
This is my mom. Got her the game on an emulator so she can have some fun with something other than Mahjong. She kept doing this and got frustrated so I had to jump into the painting for her
I actually didn't know you were supposed to jump into the paintings I had to have my older sister come in and show me
Same with spyro 2, I didn't know what the fuck I was doing so she made me sit on her lap and showed me the controls and helped me beat the first few levels with her.
>At least 17 pages
>Not text about controls and how to not be a retard
This is getting he all kinds of hot and bothered. Hold me, we'll never be able to go back
The first thing the game teaches you how to do is move and operate the camera.
So you enter the castle, first thing you're liable to notice is Toad glimmering in the walls.
Other than that, the only door you can enter is the one with the Bob-omb Battlefield painting, and through experimentation eventually you'll hurl Mario into it.
I've always really loved Nintendo games for how elegant they can be about introducing concepts.
Barring that, the instruction manual tells you that jumping into the painting will take Mario to a new world. Just because the tutorials weren't as elaborate as they are now, doesn't mean that they weren't retard-proofing.
You cheeky cunt
Because Bowser trapped him in the walls.
And how the fuck am I supposed to know which bricks have shit and which doesnt, huh miyamoto?
How do I look for invisible bricks?
Am I supposed to jump under every fucking tile?
Fuck you miyamoto, my friends kept getting more marios than me because I didn't buy the startegy guide.
I did. I went as far as thinking that jumping is an original idea and that it should be patented! Anyway, I thought: “Right, I’m not going to let those other games top us!” (laughs) We had done tests where a large character jumped around with the blue sky in the background…
>Miyamoto never played pitfall
holy shit, what a casual.
>If you got stuck on this trying to force it by jumping, you were honestly developmentally challenged as a child.
Jokes on you, I managed to do it once by jumping the first time I got to that level, which made the following runs of that level a nightmare because I was sure that was how to do it but I never managed to do it again.
I only found about the up/down months after, they only had to make that barrel not react to jumps like some others in the level to make the up/down thing obvious.
I would've bought the Homeworld remastered collectors edition if it actually had the manuals in it since it was filled with lore like Arcanum's but no, nowadays even a thing you buy double the amount you had to back in the days the get it doesn't have that.
>To get the Key, you must find...
YOU MUST FIND WHAT
>>new Nintendo games hold your hand like you're a retard
As someone who helps common people every day with mundane stuff, like simple math, or using windows, I'd say they aren't wrong.
Today, people need to be treated as retards, maybe because gaming isn't as niche as it was. Apple capitalizes on treating people like literal retards, they are the ones who introduced a device with a single button after all.
>I have never felt so smart and filled with rage in my life.
So you TOO know that feel.
Jesus Christ, have you done this through a fucking phone? Makes you wonder how in the hell humanity ever got this far. I bet a lot of people were breed to be used as canon folder.
Honest to god, those are the main reason I never best Sonic 3 as a kid. I thought it only responded to jumping on it with good timing, but the last one at the dead end couldn't be pushed low enough by jumps.
>have you done this through a fucking phone?
Fuck no, doing it in person was enough hell for me. I mean, I understand the old people but grown ass adults in their 30s?
Shit nigga how can you not grasp such simple concepts, teaching people to use excel became my personal nightmare.
I guarantee no one figured this out without being told, seeing in the demo video or looking it up.
This is literally impossible to guess and most cryptic bullshit.
>Nintendrone will defend this
Friendly reminder that those old out of touch Japanese men have not a single ounce of respect for the female gender. Mario is singllehandedly responsible for starting misoginy in gaming with his whole "hero saving damsel in distress" gimmick. Only digusting, autistic, gamer shitlords play ths shit in 2015 and enjoy it. If you disagree it's cuz you're a misogynistic bigot and everything that is wrong with the gaming industry.
I want to keep up the troll thing cuz it's funny, but I noticed our posts almost have similar numbers and had to say something
Know what I hate about modern Mario? How pastel and colorful everything is. By that, I mean there's no more realism to be found. It's all sterilized and safe. Look at Metal Mario here and then look at Metal Mario in Mario Kart 7. I've really come to appreciate Super Mario 64. I loved it as a kid and then it faded out of my life. We'll never have a Mario title with the movelist he had ever again.
What the fuck happened?
God damnit fitz.
I miss him every day.
To reach Tourian without glitches you need to kill Draygon and the only way to get there without glitches starts with the Maridia tube.
It's an easy fix too. When you collect first power bomb just trap Samus inside a tube similar to the Maridia tube and require the player to use their brand new upgrade to get out.
>have a bomb that's pretty much used exclusively to show secrets
>can't break through a glass tube which is obviously (because you have fucking eyes) breakable
>use bomb that reveals secrets to see what you need to do to get out
>it breaks it itself
