It’s over, the superbosses are piss easy
>a Nintendo game is piss easy
little cats call us fags and incestous
Dafuq? Was Culex heavily nerfed? The fight in the original without the lazy shell armor.
They always were you nimrod. Mario RPG was never about the challenge.
>Mario RPG was never about the challenge.
Exactly why the game was fucking shit. Literally just baby's first quirky earthbound like rpg game
NO SHIT. It was designed to help westerners get into the genre back when it was still struggling. Something a zoomer like you would know nothing about. have a nice day.
So, it was a worse FF7, got it
It had better graphics than FF7, and a better combat system.
Debatable, both games look awful
>better combat system
homosexual, Mario RPG is almost as deep as dragon quest 1. You just sound butthurt at this point
>it's a worse ff7
>both games look like shit
Sour grapes make the best whine.
FF7 accomplished what Mario RPG attempted to do
If you want to play a SNES era RPG that isn't shit, then even super hydlide is a better alternative than mario rpg
Why does Mario RPG trigger you so hard?
Having to buy the FF7 remake in bite-sized pieces may have broken him.
I'm a FF9fag
It's a shit game, objectively worse than more the other 2 Mario RPG franchises, and Genofags deserve the rope
i dont normally say this, but fuck yo momma
>aieeee stop shitting on my shitty childhood game
Maybe if you had grown up with secret of mana instead, you wouldn't be so ghey
>I'm a FF9fag
So am I, and SMRPG as a game actually rules.
Super Hydlide was never released on the SNES you stupid zoomer.
I'm talking about the new ones that were advertised as being hard
>as being hard
... for kids, yes. Not a 27 yo balding fatass that games all day and complains on Ganker.
>The Ryujinx crashing
Where did you get the xci?
So has anyone beaten anymore superbosses yet? We've had anons beat the cake and Booster
They added in a "Breezy" mode, but where is the Hard mode for people who don't have a room temp IQ?
Hard mode? You mean Breezy? That will be $60!
Someone never played Wizardry 4.
Play Go against any remotely experienced player and then come back and tell me turn based games can't be hard.
ost dump when
Music is still encrypted. Short of someone manually ripping all the music from the soundtest, like someone did for Booster Tower you're not goign to get it any time soon.
gib booster tower rip
Someone posted the whole soundtrack after that since people decrypted, look up.
I can’t look at that shit on my phone and the fucking songs aren’t even titled you jackass
>Also I don't WANT the music FILES!!!! That's hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#35 (Lobby) and 36 ("And My Name's Booster") here :
MUSIC RIPS HERE
The ZIP has a header (.h) file that I think has titles in Japanese for each track. Open and see in Notepad.

what you're actually playing without music wtf
What the hell ? The old geezer gave me one fucking coin ! Fuck you.
Someone post the superbosses
You have to sleep at Marrymore hotel after beating the game, then go to Star hill and see the wishes of the bosses to rematch them
>some naggers already beat the game that hasn't been leaked for more than 24 hours
you know you can beat this game in like 4-6 hours playing semi casually, right?
That's still speedrun-tier. Casual playthrough would take at least more than 10 hours.
this is literally why i chose the words "semi casual" but ok
How about i semi kick you in the cock
Mario RPG is a short game by RPG standards. It's only like 8-10 hours long. It was meant to introduce beginners to the genre after all.
Is it me or does the new OST feel off? Like it was pitchshifted upward slightly
I don't know about the main themes, battle themes are off because you need a combo chain of 5 to add all the instrumentation into it
Any link for download? Also Ryujinx works?
from the usual place, and also it crashes on start up with Ryujinx.
Yuzu works perfectly, but music doesn't work (tried both new and snes versions)
I don't know what you're doing but ryujinx with 17.0 runs perfectly
Oh you're right! Just updated now, thanks for the heads up. Works perfectly now
To the anon who's in the postgame already could you record Smithy's theme?
whatever happened to ripping music from the game files
The files are encrypted.
oh that sucks, its criware shit right
It is indeed CRI AWB files. I had no trouble with Like A Dragon Gaiden and 8's demo .awb using Foobar2k and those games are recent too, so yeah, bravo Nintendo.
they'll probably get the decryption key in a few days, maybe day 1 when the game comes out
VGMStream just got updated. Ripping it now. This is Culex's theme?
it is, im gonna update my vgmstream aswell so i can listen to booster's tower on repeat
okay what the fuck the game is made in unity. what's wrong with them
It was because the audios were encoded in OPUS and vgmstream didn't support that yet for the ACB file type.
Yep that sounds like Culex alright although it's definitely been remixed to sound more menacing and final boss worthy
sex with Culex
no this is final fantasy 4
someone didn't play the original
don't think it's as good as ffxiv's version unfortunately but it's still decent
>Yoko Shomomurified FFIV Boss theme
that was a thing since the original:
since she did the original
Her music style has clearly changed in 27 years anon, you can't compare that to a post KH/Mario and Luigi remix
The Culex boss theme is lifted from FFIV though.
Not quite. Mario RPG and FFIV have very different soundfonts, so even if the original midi was lifted, work had to be done to change it to work in the new soundfont.
You can notice how Yoko used the goofy toad town brass sounds in the Mario RPG version, it definitely has a few changes at least.
Fair enough. I stand corrected.
People expecting Soken's version are dumb. Including me. This is more in line with a "straight up" remix.
>People expecting Soken's version are dumb.
especially when Yoko Shinomura herself confirmed she was doing the sondtrack and she has her own way of doing things:
Soken cant compose after endshitter trailer and 6.1 alliance final boss
Okay, they definitely took some cues from this.
>that uses guitar
>yoko uses violin
How the flip does she do that.
Literally sounds like something out of Mario and Luigi
I cannot handle this
I wonder if devs from Mario & Luigi worked on this outside of Shimomura. Any video of the credits out yet?
>the best final fantasy game(FF4)'s battle theme by Yoko Shimomura
Anyone else absolutely loving the little dances they do when a party member levels up?!
GO FROG BOY GO
Can someone post the link and samus cameos in the remake???
Anyone got a link? Can't find it in the usual places?
Theres a big difference between challenging and "impossible to die"
I died couple of times to origami king bosses. That game had great boss fights.
058 is Smithy phase 2.
I got lucky and got that first time.
I'm surprised the Smithy themes aren't changed that much when generic battles, stronger enemy, and armed bosses sound so much different.
the booster's tower song has no right to go that hard. specially when the original sounds like shit
>Smithy Form 2
#60 is the timer test song for puzzles and holy shit i would piss my pants if i was in a SAW room and this played
/soul/ entering my body as we speak. this soundtrack has been nothing but a pleasure to listen to.
>nu-my name is booster
You are out of your mind or have some abhorrent taste in music.
nintendo make games for retards literally tendies
and yet it's still better than 160 GB open world moviegames.
so is neosquid still in or is it named mouth now
silence, Lazy Shell user
For the lazy anons
There's extra music files for these fights with less detail, i have no idea what these mean
the less detailed ones are for when you don't have a chain going, if you do have a chain going above like 5 it plays the more detailed ones
Holy shit, Kero Sewers is intense now.
Not exactly sure how I feel about phase 2, but 1 is fucking fantastic
sounds like an amateur youtube fan remix sadly, tendies will enjoy the nostalgia slop as always though
Modern Shimomura in a nutshell.
Is that really Shimomura-sensei doing the new arrangements? What a shame.
She became trannyfied like everything else, and her garbage music shows it.
The bass in the middle of Phase 2 is bit too quiet. Hopefully the "quiet" versions sound better.
052 is the important theme for that guy that was waiting yesterday.
I must know, did they remake the menu trailer?
I assume not because of how much beta content is in it. But the music is too good to simply not use.
xci link please
Here’s a link for you: https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/mcdonalds-careers.html
I already have a job thanks plus I have the game preordered I just want to play it and avoid accidentally getting spoiled while Best Buy inevitably delivers my game late.
jrpgs are for mouthbreathers
what fans of the genre want out of the gameplay are good animations and for it to be over quickly
they're all piss easy
me because i like to play different kinds of games
Read the thread dumbass.
I've known for 12 hours it's encrypted you god damn nagger monkey. I want it to get decrypted but surely that's too much of a task for you Gankeriggers, too busy playing the game and jacking off to Big Yoshi's fat ass have a nice day
READ. FUCKING. DUMBASS.
LETS GOOOO THANKS MONKEY
I miss typing with T9
wtf is the point of breeze mode?
Very very little kid mode/disabled mode
Music works fine on ryujinx ldn, why did people lie about encrypted music in this thread/
They're talking about ripping it you dumbass.
You naggers literally say that every game is piss easy anyway so why does it matter.
>wants a challenge
>decides to play a Mario game
Mate what are you doing?
We need a status update, anyone beating those secret bosses yet?
Cake - gives an accessory that auto-revives you
Booster - Geno weapon
Some anon beat Bundt Cake and Booster and said they were easy
but he was also using the Mario/Peach/Geno core likely with the lazy shell so lol
Is the Culex theme any different?
The OG plays for the first 2D fight and this plays for the new one
Is it a refight after the 2d?
Not straight after, no one has found the extra shiny stone but working theory is that you beat all the rematches then you get the stone and fight 3D Culex as the final boss
Anyone's gotten to the credits? I'm interested in the staff.
Anybody else having trouble with the Jump timing? I got it every time in the original but I can't get it in the remake.
Are you using a pro controller? I was having trouble with jump as well last night. It was the only move I couldn’t seem to time that well
>And My Name's Booster
This one is for all you fat ugly bastard lovers out there
Boosterchads are eating well HOLY
To the anons who have been playing
Did bowyer end up being a triple move tutorial like how it was theorised in previous threads? forcing you to use the triple move to finish him off because he locks all 3 buttons?
smart use of in-game gimmicks
Do timed hits function the same way with the same timing windows?
Here's Weapons Factory, shit is a banger
Excuse the pun . Reminds me of KH2 music in a good way
Excuse the KH2 autism but there isn't a song that sounds like this. It's good though.
It does remind me of TWTNW, but the Days variant.
mang i was gonna finish up the SNES one before this came out, i got like 3/4's of the way through.
Ditch and play this or finish that?
i mean, if you're over halfway through then you might aswell
don't see any reason to start all over, remake is very faithful overall
yeah, I'd rather just play a difficulty rom hack of the original, this shit is ridiculously easy
Posting other Culex related themes because Holy shit. The second theme is legitimately beautiful, i don't say that lightly
>Victory over Culex!
>Conversation with Culex
I asked this earlier on but is Culex still cool with Mario after the 3D fight, or does he die?
>final fantasy music
>final fantasy music in BING BING WAHOO
first time hearing ff prelude, tendie?
1. I guess I'm happy you enjoy Nobuo Uematsu's score for "Final Fantasy" games, but...
2. You're not listening to something new. Final Fantasy has had its music composed by a musical genius, Nobuo Uematsu, since its beginning. You're listening to music that's been written and available in probably and I'm not joking, here, over 73 different orchestrations.
I'm happy you like FF's music, but dang, kid. Get out of bed.
You stupid nagger i know what FF1 is i played it years ago, i'm saying this rendition by Yoko sounds amazing which even compared to the originals IS different.
God you fucking parasites just can't wait to get to get your fucking screencap and project fucking console war homosexualry from over 25 years ago onto someone, can't someone just say a song sounds nice without all these fucking assumptions? This place is the fucking worst due to people like you, here's your fucking (You)
Can someone help me? I can't get the game to boot in Ryujinx at all.
something's up with the xci
use the nsp
Both work on my machine.
inb4 anon dl'd the fake xci with the video
the xci from nxbrew for some reason doesn't load on ryujinx, no clue why
however the nsp loads fine
the 3D culex theme just sounds like a KH remix of the FF4 boss theme, its beautiful
Geno forest theme?
I really enjoyed the original but im only here for the new ost
im getting to the point where I dont wanna play remakes and ports anymore
does someone have all psychopath texts ripped?
Still seeding the first torrent posted around here.
Now I wonder how many people will play it for the first time.
Lots and lots of kids I bet.
For now I see over 1300 peers, and those would only be the torrent numbers.
I grew up with mario and never played it. Can't wait to play this for the first time. did it even release in europe?
>did it even release in europe?
nope, i didnt know about this game til years later
>did it even release in europe?
No, it has no PAL version.
That victory/level up music goes fucking HARD
>the organ part at 00:44 in the new smithy theme
The new music is mostly great and I'm tired of pretending it isn't
May you get caught.
May you get caught.
And may Nintendo have their way with you.
Why does the exclamation mark for attack/defense timing only show up sometimes?
It goes away once the game has decided you've gotten gud in regards to that attack.
If you stop being gud it will come back.
If you get good enough at timing, the
When you're doing well, it goes away. When you start to miss them, it comes back.
fug i exposed myself as a timing shitter
why didnt any other rpgs do the interactive skills in combat? like timed button press for less dmg blocking or tapping button at set intervals for more dmg/mario jumps on heads, etc. final fantasy stayed turn based push x simulator until the jump to single player mmo garbage. no one else did what mario rpg did. only other thing close is like old final fantasy with street fighter tier move inputs for the monk.
>why didnt any other rpgs do the interactive skills in combat? like timed button press for less dmg blocking or tapping button at set intervals for more dmg/mario jumps on heads,
I'd love to play this, but I'd feel wrong not playing the others.
You really dont have to, the main character of the previous game shows up for like 5 minutes and fucks off, and 2 others show up as boss fights and also fuck off, mainly for the fanservice of "OMG ITS HIM". He only shows up again as a party member in the new game coming out in January.
Alternatively, the other Mario RPG games also have action commands.
Legend of Dragoon on the PS1
Mother 3 has music/rhythm timed hits
The Capcom X Namco/Project X Zone games, its an turn based SRPG
DBZ Attack of the Saiyans
>no one looks japanese
half the cast are chinese or korean
Its funny the fames abour yakuza its about one man against the yakuza always to the point they even make daigo antagonist in 5 or 4 i dont remember well that ceap
Daigo was sort of an antagonist in 4 because the Tojo had been hemorrhaging money since fucking 1 and the deaths of literally everyone higher up except for him and Majima in 2 and 3 have left him desperate. He gets some sense kicked into him by Kiryu and is on the good guys side again in 5.
sea of stars did it
Because turn-based RPGs aren't supposed to be about timed presses. Whether your party can win the encounters is to be determined by character builds and possibly some specific tactics involving buffs/debuffs, or whatever gimmicks the game uses.
>A super mario game made by the ff4 guys its too fucking easy
Even as a kid in 1996, it took me about a week to beat this during the summer. You guys just ignored every side quest and didn't bother collecting anything at all if you beat it in 10 hours?
jesus you're old
I was filtered when I played it on the snes
>By baby's first RPG
Were you a literal baby.
I was a late bloomer
You're not alone. It's embarrassing to admit, but I vaguely remember getting filtered by Croco for a little while.
ESL here, I was filtered by the Sunken Ship as a kid.
Kek the bane of Hispanics.
Man that nagger hit so fucking hard.
Are enemies / bosses rebalanced at all?
Not like its needed but it would be interesting to see harder battles
Pretty sure the game is the exact same stat wise, with the inclusion of added special enemies with double the stats.
My tv filtered me at the sunken ship because my shitty crt made the font for the l look like an i.
Autism won out and I literally sat there for like an hour just trying every possible combination.
Love Culex's 3D theme, sounds like a much more menacing/aggressive version of the original and the violin transition at 1:04 to the loop is perfect.
We getting close to somebody fighting Culex 3D yet? Or still a couple rematches left before him.
Last count people only seemed to have beaten Booster and the cake.
That still leaves Punchinello, Belome, Johnathan Jones, & Jinx.
TY, also is that still image of Culex 3D part of a cut scene or something and we're going to see more of him or is it just that image (or do we not know yet)?
What i love about it is how it's mostly meanacing until 0:36 where the song regains it's hopeful bouncy Mario energy even if it's still a FF song, it's a really great take on the theme
Yeah agreed, perfect remix of the Culex theme with the first half being notably darker and the second half soaring until the violin transition which ties back perfectly.
I keep listening to it on loop and it's really grown on me.
New batch of Mario bingers
>Hey, You ever hear about that Mario guy?
>Welcome to Yoshi's Island!
Anyone know where the hidden treasure is in the arena after you beat Bowyer? I don't have enough patience to jump every 2 inches in the game.
Try jumping near the corners of the map
I'm usually autistic when it comes to remaster OSTs and always stick to the originals, but they did a really good job with the music in this game i'm surprised.
Length seems fine to me, especially with the postgame rematches and being able to travel around and talk to everyone with Smithy defeated.
Can easily spend 20+ hours playing this.
Is Booster actually married to that bird woman or he escaped?
>Can easily spend 20+ hours playing this.
>and being able to travel around and talk to everyone with Smithy defeated.
Do they explain why Geno and Bowser are still hanging with you?
when you load a cleared save a toad barges into mario's room and goes "Mario! Were you dreaming about beating Smithy? Anyway I have a gift for you" and hands you a ticket to the expensive inn room, the game unlocks harder content but story-wise you haven't beaten Smithy
Huh. That might be my favorite "punts you back out before the final boss" justification.
I just paid 500 coins on fireworks, got the shiny stone, then a carbo cookie, then the guy I gave the carbo cookie to just left and didn't give me anything. Now he's back and asks for a carbo cookie again. WTF??
Give him the cookie
If you jump on the bucket while he's gone it warps you to Midas River.
Not sure why you'd want to do that for the cost involved.
He literally promised to give me some green thing and he left to get it. And then he came back and just asked for the cookie again as if I had never given him anything. I thought it was bugged.
>If you jump on the bucket while he's gone it warps you to Midas River.
Wtf, what a waste of money. Literally got scammed.
Does Bowser's equipments have better stats or are they still inferior to the other characters?
Mario if he low poly.
>It’s over, the superbosses are piss easy
>Browser history: How to get lazy shell???
Just how I imagined it would sound like, thanks Yoko.
Good stuff. I like the piano solo. Dunno if I like flute as much but it's alright.
I was trying to remember, "I swear I've heard a humorous remix for this track" some time ago and I couldn't find it until I caved and opened my old external HD and realized it was completely renamed.
I actually like the comical tone of this more.
Square is stupid for not making a DLC pack for Theatrhythm Final Curtain for this game's soundtrack. I would've bought it easily.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Donkey Kong 3
Is this really worth full price? It's an upscaled SNES game with barely any new content.
Probably not but at least whats here is good. I wouldn't call it a replacement but it is a pretty good 3D version of it and 2D/3D Culex is soulful
It's worth if you want to support the devs. Otherwise games are free.
I don't think you know what upscaled means
>the superbosses are piss easy
Fuck it, imma just go through the game without armor/weapons
I'm surprised there isn't a super Croco. They could make him steal your equipment like he does for items in his second fight.
the advantage for the soken arrangement is the trumpets used throughout and the saxophone solo. otherwise they're extremely similar.
Did anyone really think they were going to drastically change the game?
The original English translation didn't include the joke from the Japanese version and instead had some bullshit about Culex serving the black mage. I assume that was changed so that the 3D rematch makes more sense?
Yep that was changed. It's possible the antimatter line is saved for the rematch
Yup! all of Culex's dialogue is now accurately translated
Judging from the leaked lines I've read, it seems this Culex merged the original Woolsey translation with the original JP translation.
do you have a list of dialogue available or-? would be really interested in reading it all
Found it here:
Also, judging by the dialogue, the Culex 3D rematch can be done as many times as you want and he'll count the amount of turns you took to defeat him.
>Culex comes from a fake game called Last Illusion
Personally, I like his rematch Thought Peek.
You shall bear witness to the power of post-game content!
i mean, Squeenix (and a studio that directly works with them) is still working in this game, and the FF music is still there.
why stick to a fake game name? if the issue is them clarifying he is not from any FF game (despite the fact he obviously is) why not just put 'he arrived from a world of an ancient story about crystals' or something?
Because if he was actually from FF you'd have to deal with copyright. Besides it's funnier he's from knockoff FF
Who made SMPRG?
Who made Final Fantasy?
A Dragon Quest superboss reference nested in my Final Fantasy reference superboss? Nice.
What happens if I reach 99?
You get Peach's vibrator
>raises attack and magic attack, decreases defense and magic defense and speed
I don't even know what it even does normally. It says you get a stat buff but I am not sure I can tell the difference.
Fucked it up at 92...
Jump? I haven't played the remake but you get the super jumper from monstro town
It's not the jumps retard, it's how many action commands you got right in a row including guarding.
dont be a fucking asshole Mike
how the fuck do you fix audio in cutscenes
Ryujinx, SoundIO, 17.0.0 firmware. Restart the emulator. Enjoy.
didn't work :/
wont even make it to title screen
tf am i doin wrong
3D Culex being the postgame final boss is absolutely perfect, hard to imagine a better way to end the game than him returning after attaining his 3D form.
Makes the original feel more complete.
Some of the super mobs are real heavy hitters
Ironically enough the remake ends up having harder encounters thanks to the occasional super mob, especially if they can use group attacks.
So like, are some enemies just randomly on steroids or something?
Yeah, they have considerably more health and do a lot more damage. They drop more EXP,money, and frog coins however.
That's actually kinda cool. Gives the game a bit more flavor
Yes lol. Some enemies are tagged as stronger, they attack in the same way but do more damage than usual and can also tank more hits.
I am liking this change, at least now you have a reason to spend flower points in normal fights outside of healing.
>Many fans would love to hear the Super Mario RPG or Parasite Eve music in a new orchestrated form!
Now we just need the author of the original novels to play nice with SE
>muh beginner RPG isn't ballbustingly difficult
Who cares, the remake is a pure delight. I never cared much for SMRPG (always preferred Paper Mario) but even I have to admit this is a home-run.
The new version of Midas River made me cry. Not hard. Not long.
Maybe it was the instrumentation. Maybe it was the memories of a better time.
But that banjo twang on the second loop opened up something, just for a few seconds.
Yoko did good.
>flower points are still a shared resource
Why did they keep this? You get so many Flower Tabs, Jars, and Boxes that you could max everyone's individual FP. Just make the cost higher for the stronger skills if you don't want hem to be spammable.
More strategy is good
>new version of within the earthen pipe
God I love how this woman has been doing the same arrangement with the underground theme and her having that ambience at the start since the fucking beginning
this guy's fuckin rad
W-What does the Switch button do?
You can switch party members during battles in the remake
Shuts down the game.
lets you swap party members
Ruins the entire game in one foul swoop so no one ever gets a game over
It's impossible to get a game over once you get the lazy shell since it reduces all damage received to 1.
Proper hard mode mod when? Shouldn't be hard to do since its made in Unity.
here's Culex's battle thoughts btw
I wonder if they kept sex jokes in jp battle thoughts
Is this scene in?
Everything is in
they expanded on it, that's why the game is rated M
Yes, can confirm. It's actually a pre-rendered FMV now, super cute
I wish the average remake was as "soulless" as SMRPG. The only thing I don't like is the UI but it's not like the original was any better.
Made it past the wedding cake. It's literally the same game. What a shame. I guess it's for zoomers who never got to play the original when it was new.
>we could have gotten a new story, a new game
Fuck remakes an the nagger zoomer millenial cattle that buy these
We will when this thing sells 6 million copies in a year
This is a boring remake. They barely changed anything.
FF7 remains the gold standard. SO2's was good too.
This is a cash grab.
>FF7 remains the gold standard
It is. It actually remade the game and gave returning players new stuff
Resident Evil 4 is also just as good, letting the game feel new while still revisiting nostalgia
This game changes nothing
>This game changes nothing
Several things in battles and adds boss rematches as post-game content.
>This game changes nothing
So you're saying that FF7 and RE4 had so many flaws, that they needed help to even be desirable.
But SMRPG had its shit together so well that changing perfection has no merit.
That's kind of you to say.
do kingdom hearts fags really
>Using "Kingdom Hearts fags" as an insult in a thread for a game made by the Kingdom Hearts team with the Kingdom Hearts composer and Kingdom Hearts-style OCs and a Final Fantasy crossover superboss
>if you make something good it means you are incapable of making disney slop
You’re a fucking retard if you think FF7 is the gold standard
FF7 isn't even a remake, drink bleach you time janny loving bastard
>spending over $180 for a remake, having to buy a next gen console to continue playing it, and having to wait a decade to fully play it should be the gold standard
>FF7 remains the gold standard
This is a blue board. Keep your disgusting shit on b or trash.
>FF7 remains the gold standard.
Literally isn't a remake. Which you would know if you'd actually played it.
Only autistic retards say this.
Having meta/alternate timeline elements in a remake doesn't make it not a remake.
it certainly isnt now... its more than clear that for nomura 'REMAKE' is to make a new story fom scratch, not making again the same story.
so you don't want a remake. you want a sequel.
>change too much
>'what the FUCK bros they ruined everything this is nothing like the original game wheres the _____ why did they add this stupid stealth section'
>'what the FUCK bros this is literally the same game I played as a kid 80 Canadian dollars for this why didn't they change this part it always sucked as a kid'
They kept the "Mustn't run away" line for the Crook enemy (although he only says it once instead of twice). Were any of the other Eva references kept?
Ah, so this is what ArtePiazza has been doing after the Romancing SaGa 3 remake? Cool, they're great devs. Was expecting them to keep working for the SaGa team in Frontier 2, but that's not likely anymore.
Hnnng that Rose Town theme.
Post yfw nintendo game is hard
>the shyguys during mack's fight are their own unique enemies and i missed the though peek
Damn I missed it too
Can't you just go find Mack in the factory (or in postgame there) and fight him?
>use Thought Peek on Bodyguard
>"You know, I think I prefer Mack too"
Is this true? lol
Not at all.
But if you Thought Peek Claymorton he says "I can't get this old song out of my head"
If you miss to thought peek any enemy, in booster path there's a hidden dude that register all the enemies previous to Mallow, and you can pay 3 frog coins for each enemy you failed to register.
I feel like SM RPG just needed a postgame and a climactic final boss for the postgame. In that sense this remake is perfect because it handles both issues.
That's all it was missing; absolutely no need for the FF7 or RE4 treatment here.
I'd rather get a SM RPG 2 after this that does a lot of new things with the characters/places and provides for a lot more story/exploration.
>I'd rather get a SM RPG 2 after this that does a lot of new things with the characters/places and provides for a lot more story/exploration.
Oh I fucking wish.
XCI also works on actual hardware in case you are wondering, and that doesn't even a firmware above 16.0.2.
I would've liked just one more new party member to top it all off, whether it be Luigi or bazooka rambo Toad, even one of the Axem rangers turncoating.
Yeah I respect that, but I think any new stuff is going to be saved for a potential sequel which is why they didn't change the 5 party members. I wouldn't be surprised if Square/Nintendo were already forming a development team to handle a sequel; this remake is guaranteed to be a financial success and all the game assets are now updated/modernized.
An SM RPG 2 with a cast of say 10-12 party members that rotate in and out depending on story makes a lot of sense.
Can have Luigi, Toad, Prince Mallow, Geno, Johnny as rotating members to Mario, Peach, Bowser and add another 2 original members.
I'd envision just Mario as the one who's always part of the party while others come and go based on their story arcs; Peach and Bowser probably spend the most time in the party.
Add a new continent and let them also come back to the original SM RPG lands.
>with a cast of say 10-12 party members
This isn't Final Fantasy 6. This is Mario. There will be 2 party members and you will like it.
I'd be down with that. Same dev team could probably make it too. Don't think it will happen though.
If a sequel ever does happen, i'd really like if Rosalina was a party member and she helps the party travel around to different worlds. I dont think revisiting areas from the first game is necessary, it should be a more grander adventure than just taking place on Mario Earth. There could even be a dimension space rift that leads them to the easter egg FF boss
Mario's world is invaded and merged by the world of Last Illusion, Now mario and gang must fight against Final fantasy final boss tier monsters in the merge world
if a sequel happens I hope they bring back the guys from 3on3 hops
White Mage is pure sex
her name is actually Shirma
finally, beat the fucker
time to grind and prep for rematches
I grinded the speardovich machine made replica in the gate with exp booster til I hit 30 on all party lol
So is it confirmed that we need to beat all rematches before facing culex 3d?
>Denizens of the three-dimensional world...Our paths cross once more. You have used your great strength to grant the wishes of powerful people.
>The force of your strength resonated with my own wishes, enabling me to attain greater evil power and return to this plane.
>You shall see this power firsthand!
Oh my god they really did it… They fulfilled the promise of the original game, this shit is so surreal
>enabling me to attain greater evil power
I thought he was called The Dark Knight of Vanda because he was black, not evil.
They use the PC-friendly term Dark Knight. Instead of Black Knight. And you still go for a racial reading of that term. You're too far gone.
Get the stick out of your ass, Speardobitch.
Don't be so butthurt, even if you're used to it.
I don't even know where to go to fight him otherwise, the door outright disappears and i can only assume it reappears once you've beaten all the rematches
Is there a hidden reward for getting all the chests? It seems like a waste of time since most are useless items post game.
A dog shakes your hand.
Where the fuck is the hidden chest, in the snes version it was above the leftmost chest, but here you can't even jump on it.
Was it not here in the SNES version?
Was it not here in the SNES version?
I just found it, it actually was above the leftmost chest, you need to jump with a certain angle to get on top of it.
Why are you retards saying it runs poorly on Ryujinx? It runs perfectly at 1440P on my M1 Mac
The only people having problems are vramlets that crash from lack of memory(this is fixable with enabling texture recompression).
It's the FMVs that are fucked. I didn't even bother to see the rest of the game when the opening movie stuttered like a bitch.
For me, the Opening movie was the only cutscene that was desynced.
anything other than music to keep chains going?
Why does this toad man look so different to all the others?
Well excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me, Mario
Dunno man, was maybe there's A link to the past Mario RPG or something. have you tried talking to him? maybe he will have an Awakening or some shit
I love this game, I still have the SNES cartridge but this is just a gift from Nintendo. Booster's Tower new BGM is absolutely beautiful.
Missed opportunity to make Mario switch to the original SMRPG sprite.
I love what Nintendo has done with this game. It truly is a gift for everyone. Everyone should purchase a this game for themselves and every child.
Where's the hidden treasure in Forest Maze after the Bowyer fight?
Near the entrance (opposite to the save point) on the left side.
in french, he s called batracius
peak souls, we re eating good frog bros
Where is Punchinello? Do I have to go through moleville mines again lmao
It's a really well done remake, but I dunno if there is a ton of reason to buy this over just playing the original. It's already on switch online rom catalog, isn't it?
They did do a great job at recreating the scenes.
Do we have any imagery or footage of Smithy Phase 2 yet?
Is ghost medal fine on geno or should i go with speed accessory instead
i know some of you beat the game
upload the SHADER CACHE please
found in pic related
you guys are fucking silly
Like kidney stone piss difficulty or you just gunned down 2 water bottles and a jug of prune juice piss difficulty?
If I loved Paper Mario 1/2 will I like RPG? I like having a lot of dialogue and towns to visit and also having input in combat beyond just selecting the actions.
By contrast I want to love Mario & Luigi games but there's just not enough dialogue/story.
Yeah if you liked paper mario you'll like this but just keep in mind this game is pretty simple compared to something like TTYD.
Yeah I know it's even older than PM1 so I temper my expectations. Thanks!
He's Geno and he kills himself at THE END.
I always got the idea that Super Mario RPG was for babies and barely held a candle against any other RPG entry
anyone else getting random crashes when moving rooms?
It's not random - you're using software on hardware it wasn't intended for.
>They kept the "FIZZY FIZZY FIZZY FIZZY" sound effect from the spinning flower
someone have the shaders or whatever they're called?
How in the world do you beat Johnny Jones in the rematch, it's only Mario and I can't heal?
why is he so dark
Switch can't do ray tracing.
Confucius say the N word
Mallow...I hit this up until now...but you are not a frog. you are a N
This seems like a lighting bug to me, there are a few other npcs in screenshots that appear very dark.
Because you're playing it on an emulator.
POST YFW BATTLE THEME
Is Luigi around at all? Or is he just in the credits again?
they removed him
>Game has an EASY MODE for a game that was already very easy
>Doesn't have a HARD MODE
Its a SNES rpg. The hard mode is to not use the broken armor.
>Its a SNES rpg. The hard mode is to not use the broken armor.
That's fine, but why not add a hard mode while they are rebuilding the entire game from scratch?
the hard mode is no mario/geno/peach and no equipment besides weapons
How would you know, the game isn't out?
How many refights are there?
Guys what's the trick to Punchinello rematch? He takes basically no damage
Haven't done it but I noticed he inflicts fear and that lowers damage.
>items stack this time
>limited inventory anyways
>added a storage box on top of that
why limit the inventory at all then?
You don't get to spam items, I guess.
Would be cool if it was an actually challenging RPG but yeah.
Get 5 action commands right, including guarding
Can't wait to do my usual team of Mario/Bowser/Peach again.
>the new soundtrack is actually great
>You finally know whats under Smithy's beard
>download latest firmware and prod keys
>still doesn't show up on the list on Ryujinx
what the fuck is going on
can you still do the boo skip in the sewers and get told to fuck off or die for a free flower?
Did Bowser and Mallow get buffed?
Holy shit lmao I died to culex 3d first try, he just dropped my party hp to 1 with one attack wtf
Pics of how he looks in-battle please!
Pls record stream or take pics of the fight please
Ye, he got me fucked up
Holy shit he looks so cool!
Kek he looks so out of place, he even has the massive FF final boss sprite
His attack "Meteor" takes you down to 1hp, going to try and switch my party around at the start and use the other members as fodder, I think he only uses it once(?)
thats actually pretty sick, he still has the amano art aesthetic
Why is he bishounen? Sprite look like a devil
Accurate to the Square 2d > 3d transition
Any word on fixing the cutscene sync issue?
Can someone post more Smithy shit? Preferably phase 2
So should i play this one or the SNES version?
honestly i'd play both since the first one is amazing and the second one builds upon the first.
>and the second one builds upon the first.
What do you mean by that?
just extra stuff, the music is decisively different, the atmosphere is different and more appreciated upon playing the original beforehand.
Does his tail wiggle about or is he static?
how do I get troopa pin? Got under 12sec on the course and no pin.
nevermind it's under 11s now. Fair enough I guess. Just took a couple extra tries.
My first crash after 6 hours in Marrytown. I heard some people were having issues when recruiting Peach? I already have her (beat the cake) and crashed as I was leaving the building.
Alright it just crashes every time in the same spot, as you walk down towards the hotel. It could be a busted shader I guess, very specific. Anyone got this issue and resolved it?
what does your log say?
>00:00:59.668 |E| GUI.RenderLoop Application : Unhandled exception caught: Ryujinx.Graphics.Vulkan.VulkanException: Unexpected API error "ErrorDeviceLost".
I'll try DirectX for that section I guess
>dousing a tail fire
>actually shows him running around with tail on fire
K I N O
Did they get rid of the random egg gambling after battles? I hate Europeans so much.
This sounds a bit like Lupin
Dude fuck this. I don't know what strategy they want me to use, I keep dying to this meteor bullshit.
He does it right at the start it's unavoidable, and then it counts down 4 turns until he does it again, the only thing I found possible was to keep charging the peach triple move to protect against it, but that takes a bunch of perfect action commands and I waste most of my turns healing. fuck
Is it Culex casting it or one of the Crystals?
Culex, honestly I'm lost. I used my non-mains as fodder at the start, it doesn't seem right. I can't defend against it either, like literally says you can't block against it so it's impossible to do anything expect take the 999 damage
It's time to pull out the lazy shell anon
>booster jazz kicks in
das it mane
for Booster theme.
Snifsters? Guess they decided they were too special to just be Snifits.
Not a fan of the AoE timed hits. Yeah, it's only perfect timed htis but I get it every time.
Culex 3D looks amazing. I mean hot damn that looks like how I would have imagined 27 years ago.
Doesn't the game have several different difficulties? One of them must be really difficult, right?
Game only has Breezy and Normal modes.
What is wrong with you homosexuals and muh hard RPGs? No RPG is hard and this is a children's game. Go play Dark Souls or some shit?
I'm of the opinion that all games should have custom difficulty. Like a menu that you unlock after you finish it that gives you the option to change most of the parameters for fun.
Congrats anon, you might be the first one to have ever beaten the game
How was the rematch?
they also tell you how many turns it took
actually kinda challenging, make sure to save red essences for this
Oh nice, Dragon Quest 11 S has the same thing with it's post-game battle
is luigi still in the credits
I have no idea what it does, I'm gonna fight Smithy again and see if something changes
kek it does nothing, it just sits in your inventory
>didn’t give the frog guy the cricket jam
Dude his wish…
Also buy 5 fireworks
>perma-empty 7th star slot
I get why, but they could have filled it in on the menu just to make it look nice once you get a star on the profile select.
>he didn't take it back to Mario's Pad where Luigi is waiting, who then joins your party once he is impressed by your show of ultimate strength
That's pretty gud, I didn't go in prepared so it was a battle of attrition
What are the other postgame boss rewards?
How much hp does he have? regular culex + the crystals make for roughly 12000 total
9999, fire has 3500, water has 2800, earth has 4200, and wind has 1800
are there any other secret hidden FF bosses around
No. Post game is doing the six rematches then Culex
but where are the REST OF THE FF BOSSES
FUCK I THOUGHT THEY WOULD PUT THEM THERE SINCE THEY WERE CUT CONTENT IN THE ORIGINAL
Wait is that the button gimmick from Bowyer.
they also tell you how many turns it took
actually kinda challenging, make sure to save red essences for this
actually kinda challenging, make sure to save red essences for this
>Culex still a bro after losing
Congrats, I didn't play yet cause I was spending all day getting last 10 wins for this. now I have 75 to do on my alt char.
MMO players are such absolute fucking retards
Only reason I quit FF14 is because after playing it for 7 years I concluded that every single person except me lacked a brain. Like hamsters running on a wheel, despite the game having plenty of actual good gameplay content. I didn't meet a single person I could stand in that game.
The standard MMO experience then
good game, awful community
Oops, last 30, not 10. If anybody cares.
is there new shit to do? other than the boss rematches.
>still wholly incapable of getting above 11 super jumps
I just don't understand. It's the same shit with the yoshi minigame, it's all off. Kinda disappointed as that's literally the only thing I have left, even finished the bestiary.
It's ok anon you are done, no one expects you to get 100 jumps
Someone at Nintendo is trying to murder Mario, I swear.
What Culex 3D says when you Thought Peek him
FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU CULEX EAT MY ASSHOLE
WHAT DO U GET
Whats the trick to the Culex fight? Do you just have to keep healing after 1HP attacks
You could quick swap to tank the 1 HP attacks, but basically yes
>I'm now crashing on Star Hill
God damn it
Any images of Smithy Phase 2 at all???
What is wrong with your thumb?
And your hand?
And your leg?
Exactly how fat are you?
the game doesnt release until next friday. how do so many people already have it?
>he didn't set his clock ahead one week for Bing Bing's Savings Time.
Yeah I don't think the Crystal Shard does anything
So... is Mallow better here than in the original?
>single handedly fills your bestiary for free
>one shots groups of 5 mobs at a time from the Dry Bones in Sunken Ship for 2 FP every 10 seconds for insane levels mid game
Don't blame the tool, blame the workman.
So now that the game has been deboonked, what was your first reaction to 3D Culex?
Mine was pic related.
