Was Super Mario 64 from the point of view of Lakitu?
And in the mirror room, don't forget the mirror room
Now was Lakitu helping Mario? Or was he spying on him for Bowser?
This picture doesn't make sense. If the camera is the viewpoint of the player, then the position of the camera is wrong since we clearly see Lakitu on the left side, pointing the camera slightly to the right where Mario is. Even taking into account the angle it doesn't add up.
Mario is being haunted by the spirit of Luigi, who is being held prisoner by the stars power, which is why he doesn't show up in the game.Once Mario defeats Bowser and gets the big star, Luigi is freed and can finally materialize again.This also explains why Luigi wins a haunted mansion: He is connected to the spirit realm, which tries to win him over.It also explains Luigi's fear of many things, he suspects otherwordly interference in everything and has thus become paranoid.
Truly this is the Evangelion of vidya.
If Cranky Kong is the original Donkey Kong and DK is an adult Donkey Kong Jr., then why is Mario still the same age as when he fought them?
Where did all that technology come from between Mario 3 and Mario Kart 64? Bowser was able to cripple the Mushroom Kingdom with wooden airships, but not even a decade later there's jet planes and highways.

Have you looked into it? Jumpman was given a name, Mario, during Mario Bros. developer. He is Mario. Pauline is in Mario vs. Donkey Kong as well for example, she didn't age a bit.
The son of Jump Man(Mario) goes on vacation with the crew. Since they're tired from their acting career. They land and some REAL shit actually goes down. However since Mario is the son of the legendary Jump Man he knows just what to do
The Mario universe as a whole now relies more on technology than magic.

I wonder if part of training as an employee of Nintendo is to be initiated on all facets of Nintendo's gaming lore, after which time you are sworn to absolute secrecy on penalty of death.
Yeah, that game is just the experience of reading the book the Yoshis made. That's why all the Yoshis are playable, why it's all about just eating fruit, and
that's why it isn't very good because Yoshis aren't that good at making games.
So you're saying that Americans are critical thinkers who are not gullible due to asking for sources, while Europeans are gullible fools who believe everything they read on the internet without question? I can live with that.
Yes clouds are like sponges that abosrb water, that's why when it is cloudy, clouds are full of water, and they start leaking and that's the rain.
It's true. Gunpei Yokoi was going to go public with the full truth, but he was silenced by one of Nintendo's sleeper agents.
Are you fucking retarded? Lakitus are fucking pros, there wasn't just a single Lakitu, there was an entire crew.
There were even Lakitus holding boom mics and stuff, you just didn't get to see it.

That may be true but that's far from the biggest change in SM64DS, and still doesn't change the fact that it's an open world Super Mario Bros.

I bet you enjoy italian margherita pizza with you boyfriend.
You have made a mistake that most yuropeens usually make.
You see, America is a very large country.
It's size is comparable to the entirety of europe and yet you people constantly act like a single fucking example could possibly cover the spectrum of shit we've got over here.
If you're going to talk about American pizza then you've got about 10,000 styles to discuss, a lot of which are directly releated to their european ancestors.
tl;dr suck my dick and choke on it
>This image was shooped at least five times to pin the blame on various nations.
>tfw you lost the one where there's a crying eagle and an american flag behind them, they're all dressed in lederhosen and there's a sign saying "Welcome to England" right next to them.
Europeans think of countries as being small places, like European countries. They don't realize that the US is half a fucking continent large and has distinct cultures, dialects, and food all over its different distinct regions.
>trust me, this one place nobody in america cares but me is totally representative of american pizza!
>don't mind those minor pizza-makers such as pizzahut/domino/papa john, they are not representative of american pizza!
You live in delusion, you fake italian
Pretty much this. It's telling that our "principalities" are called states, which is normally reserved for an entire country. Hell, most of our states are larger than the entire UK.
The recipies and menues for all of those large pizza chains change depending on what state you're in.
But you wouldn't know that because you're too busy bitching to ease your nationalized Napoleon complex.
Whatever is most consumed is representative of what that country consumes.
The vast majority of people in italy consume independently made pizza, not from any shitty chain that gives up quality for price and mass-production.
>whole point being about americans do not have italian pizza, but their own shitty versions
>b-b-but why w-w-would it have to be italian, a-anyway?
Nice try, eagle-man.
Don't see any italian pizza in that commercial. Wrong link?
No, your whole point was originally HURR NOT GOOD PIZZA! I think you're just stupid.
I'll leave you with this glorious Ray's.
There's no point arguing with him, he's doesn't even know what he's talking about. He keeps asking for an "Italian pizza" despite the fact that Italian pizza is totally different depending on what part of Italy you're in.
Italian restaurants have Italian-style pizza. But they're nice sit down affairs, not delivery joints. What you're doing is like saying that American burgers are all shit because the ones you get at fast food are shit. If you go to an actual NICE restaurant you get NICE food.
Because you should name your "pizza" something that resembles it more, like pepperoni bread pie.
You americans have a thing with using wrong names and appropriating of something else because you feel like copying a hip name.
>Europeans complaining about Americans appropriating things
Boo-hoo, we made pizza different and didn't change the name. Do you not know about Europe's long history of being full of empires trying to conquer the entire world all the time?
Italy's "nice sit-down" pizza restaurants are comparable to american's lowest tier fast foods. The prices are also comparable.
Why do you guys have third world country eating habits? Aren't you swimming in money? In here, only 8 year olds who ditched school and hobos eat at fast foods.
>Italy's "nice sit-down" pizza restaurants are comparable to american's lowest tier fast foods.
So you're saying that all restaurants in Italy are shit? If the nice sit-down restaurants are comparable to the lowest tier of American fast-food, that would mean that the LESS nice, NON-sit-down restaurants must be even worse than that, right?
How low of a point must your life be at for you to type that sentence on an anonymous imageboard and not do a double take after reading it before closing your browser and going outside?
I'm not even involed in this idiocy but you just jumped the shark something fierce.
No, Rome conquered those countries and let them keep their names, but forced Roman laws and culture on them. Just like how we Americans took pizza, changed it, and kept the name.
See? You're the same as us. Except you rape entire cultures and we only rape some food items.
It's exactly because I'm on an anonymous imageboard that I can say this without a care in the world.
I tend to cook my own stuff so I know what's good by look alone.
>The pizza restaurants are low tier shit, something that is top-class where you live.
>top class food is the equivalent of American fast food
Why do American's have such low standards?
I meant in terms of price, obviously not food quality.
I've been to a bunch of "italian restaurants" in america, treated like they were hot, high class shit, and they sucked major dicks compared to what we have.
Why are your food standards so low?
>The pizza restaurants are low tier shit, something that is top-class where you live.
Jesus Christ, you have zero reading comprehension.
Pizza joints are a couple notches above fast food. If you want authentic Italian-style pizza, you have to go to a sit down restaurant. There are also plenty of tiers of sit-down restaurants, but maybe this is too complex a concept for you.
>Americans are the only ones with these food items
Not to mention no, your Italians left and brought these things here after Italian Unification because your country was poor as shit.
>The pizza restaurants are low tier shit, something that is top-class where you live.
Ah, you seem confused. What the anon was saying is that if you want a normal, Italian pizza you go to an Italian restaurant. If you want an American style pizza you just order from a pizza place, AKA a fast food joint.
>>top class food is the equivalent of American fast food
>Why do American's have such low standards?
Sounds like American's have pretty fucking high standards if even our fast food is higher class than top class Italian restaurants.
>I meant in terms of price, obviously not food quality.
So you're saying that if I move to Italy I can use my fast food budget to eat at upscale, top-tier restaurants? Holy shit, man, I could live like a fucking KING there, couldn't I? Probably retire on my current $10,000 savings.
>McDonalds is valuable
>banked entirely on delivering the lowest quality food possible in order to save money and open up even more stores
>literally the antithesis of quality
It has value to you because you're used to low eating standards.
Are you aware that every place is able to grow anything ever, and worldwide production =/= being able to make it?
Are you also aware that you give up quality for mass distribution? Of course you haven't, I doubt you've ever eaten natural food in your entire life.
More or less. American fast food pizza chains (Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc.) are generally pretty awful, but depending on where you live there are usually quality, locally-owned pizza joints. I live in a medium sized city that had a large number of Italian immigrants back in the day, so it's not to hard to find good pizza. Then you also have to remember that restaurants vary in quality as well, so some Italian restaurants would be just as shitty as fast food.
A large part of the world has indeed horrible eating standards just like the US, yeah.
Fast food chains aren't anywhere near as profitable in italy because we actually eat valuable food.
>Are you aware that every place is able to grow anything ever
Good luck growing oranges in England.
>worldwide production =/= being able to make it
>producing it is not making it
Sure thing, buddy.
>Are you also aware that you give up quality for mass distribution
A tomato is a tomato, it hardly cares whether it's in a field of 10 or a field of 1000 as long as it gets the nutrients it needs.
>Of course you haven't, I doubt you've ever eaten natural food in your entire life.
All the corn, tomatoes, and pecans I grew when I lived in Georgia never happened.
Natural is inherently good when you can choose natural or chemical-ridden shit of the same kind, yeah.
That is, when you actually can choose, though. Which I doubt you can for most food types where you live.
It's not just about climate, it's a mixture of things.
You're not the only country to have such features, but guess what, tiny countries like Italy, France or Spain provide much better quality and much better varieties than the entire US, of most staple foods.
Only an ameretard could prefer their shitty tomato to San Marzano or their sub-par ham to Jamon Iberico.
>the entire world is wrong. I'm right.
How do italians manage to have their heads so far up their own asses and still breathe?
There are SOME americans who are obnoxious cunts and constantly scream about how america is da best but I have never seen an italian who DOESN'T act like this.
Lakitu was a storytelling device to add a clever (but unneeded) explanation for why we could follow Mario around a three dimensional world compared to our bystander perspective with the 2D games.
>implying I give a shit if you Dagos think this is MUH REAL ITALIAN PIZZA
>implying I give a shit about anything as long as it tastes good
Not him but it's pretty much a fact that italian food is of higher quality.
Just visit both countries, and both in supermarkets and restaurant you'll find there's an abyss between the two countries.
It's been said a hundred times in this thread already but it bears repeating:
There's no such thing as "American food"
American cuisine is an amalgimation of cultures around the world, including italian.
Everything Italy has, America has. The opposite is not true.
But no, "Real™" Italian food is better because Italians say so.
It's a matter of living habits and culture. Italians value food more than most of the rest of the world.
I don't think you'll find many italians saying everything in italy is better, it's objectively not, but the food is of higher quality, period.
You would know if you visited both places.
Because food is a huge deal for us.
It should be one of life highest pleasures.
But then again, i sometimes forget that i'm talking to guys who don't even know what real Parmigiano is, or Jamon Iberico, or Roquefort.
You just don't know better.
I never understood this argument. You do realize that the chain places have their own recipes for dough, sauce, and seasonings, right? And they ship out fresh dough, sauce, and seasonings to the restaurants or it's made on-site from the ingredients.
There's nothing inherently more special about the pizza that comes out of your oven. The only difference is the recipe.
I visited both countries: you'll find more variety in some italian regions than in the entire US.
But as i've already said, you don't know better.
You just believe in Italy they actually eat spaghetti with meatballs.
You don't know nothing Jon Snow.
>Because food is a huge deal for us
It's a huge deal for me, too, faggot. As I said in the post the one you're replying to replied to, I don't give a shit about whether or not it's considered real Italian pizza as long as it tastes good. If it tastes good, I'm happy. Quit acting like an elitist.
You do realize that the chains' personnel for baking pizzas are random low-cost guys out of the street to maximize cost-efficiency, but restaurants/homemade pizza is made by guys trained to do it properly, yes?
And who would've thought. Quality matters when the person preparing the food is different.
That's the problem, you REALLY believe that processed ingredients are as good as the best sauce tomatos, that there is no difference between a shit tier mozzarella and a god tier one, that olive oil is all the same.
You don't know better.
It's just food because all you've eaten is shit food.
This is like the console peasants saying 24 fps is perfect for playing games. They just don't know better, so they feel satisfied.
>You do realize that the chains' personnel for baking pizzas are random low-cost guys out of the street to maximize cost-efficiency, but restaurants/homemade pizza is made by guys trained to do it properly, yes?
Following a recipe is something a fucking monkey can do.
small restaurants are no more likely to give special training than a chain. unless you are talking about high end pizza for twice the price which is not even a discussion worth having.
>you'll find more variety in some italian regions than in the entire US.
America is one of the only countries where it's commonplace to have an Italian restaurant next door to a Spanish Restaurant which is next door to a sea food bar which is next dooor to a chinese buffet.
Does italy have food from another fucking planet or something? Becuase that's the only possible way they could have more variation than America.
I've known one guy that had a pizzeria in Italy.
He paid his cook 2k€ a month.
A good pizzaiolo is highly valued, pizzerias will fight to hire him.
More often than not the pizzaiolo itself attracts clients.
I've actually been considering this recently. Looking into that Soylent shit. But I do enjoy that food tastes good. I just don't get being THAT INTO food.
I don't get Americans who cum when they bite into steak, either.
You really don't know.
Visit Sicily, then tell me if Sicily alone doesn't have more varieties of sweets, of pasta or fish preparations that the entire US.
Hell, a tiny town in Sicily is the last place on earth where aztec formula chocolate is still made, and that comes down from the Spanish domination.
Sicily alone has more cultivars of Olive than the entire North America.
You get the scope of it?
Why did this turn into a fucking pizza thread
I don't understand
Maybe in america, in italy, shit tier pizza places run by 2 people have a professional pizza-maker guy who trained specifically to make pizzas, before actually getting the job. It's a school.
There should be no surprise that pizza made by burger-flipper tier people is considerably worse, really.
>my food is best yours is shit because i said so
>you've just never had good food so you're ignorant and i am far superior and more refined
>stop liking what i don't like
par for the course discussion on /v/, even when it is about food
But there are cheap varieties of tomato and pricey, excellent varieties of tomato.
Chains are gonna use the shitty ones.
In order to make an IGP Neapolitan Pizza in Italy you are forced by law to choose only the best tomato cultivars.
All those "from another country" restaurants in america are rarely even run by people having actual cooking experience from their own country, or even being native from the country itself.
And if they do, their menus are pathetic and limited.
Still less variation than America.
Any sweet, pasta or fish that Italy has, america does too aside from whatever you're talking about with Aztec chocolate which, as far as I can tell, it a pointless denomination.
When you're using fucking olives as a bragging point I think it's safe to say you're scraping the bottom of the barrel.
I am talking about your own restaurants. You would feel a huge difference in quality of the end product, compared to your chain food.
That must mean that not anyone can make the same shit when every possible recipe is available online.
Nice reading comprehension though, that is very common with /v/'s course of discussion.
That's if you want to put a fancy official sticker on your restaurant.
But thanks to that stickers, clients have the guarantee they're gonna get a top-quality pizza, at least in terms of ingredienst.
North America doesn't grow olives. We import them from Italy. We get stuff from all over the world, European countries including Italy don't import nearly as much as we do.
Saying you have more variety than the US is like saying you have more variety than the entire rest of the world. It simply isn't so.
If you think you have more varieties of fish than us then you've clearly never been to a US port town.
We simply don't have the guarantee sticker. So what? That is what reviews are for. Exploring. That's half the fun of restaurant-hopping.
Do you know all of American dishes? Not to mention all the dishes brought here by immigrants and given regional variance?
>We simply don't have the guarantee sticker. So what?
It means that all your quality food is content with reaching mediocrity. Quite a bad thing for a rich country, to have heating standards of monkeys.
>Hell, a tiny town in Sicily is the last place on earth where aztec formula chocolate is still made, and that comes down from the Spanish domination.
Bullshit. I get Aztec chocolate from a chocolatier in Colombia.
>Sicily alone has more cultivars of Olive than the entire North America.
No shit, olives can only grow in Mediterranean climates. The only state in the U.S. capable of growing olives is California.
>all your quality food is content with reaching mediocrity
Not exactly. Like I said, there are top tier restaurants in the US. Even local, inexpensive ones. We just don't have a pizza sticker.
Is this the correct type of food that the americans also call Pasties? I need to know this to answer your question.
Since you did not include a place of origin or an adjective, is there anything else that I need to know?
>hey guys name an example of some rare obscure local food that nobody else will know
>names generic shit commonly present in most of the world
Yeah, there's a world of difference in regards of food, just live with it.
Mario was a Pinocchio type creation made by an italian pizza maker out of dough.
The reason he eats so many mushrooms is because he's trying to become the ultimate mushroom pizza.
Not really, it's a quantity over quality thing.
American food is all mass produced and made on a whim while their counterparts are made with fresh ingredients cooked carefully.
Mario was young in Donkey Kong, somewhere between 18-21. Cranky was already fairly old for an ape at that point, but wasn't showing his age just yet. DK was already in his ape teens in the time of that game. Apes age quicker than humans.
It's not that too hard to imagine.
It was from it's camera, and yet it lacks:
-depth of field
-dust / water droplets on lens
Also if Lakitu is holding it with a fishing rod there's no way he would be incapable of performing proper pitch/roll rotations, and I'm not even talking about the inertia of the damn thing that would swing all around at the slightest movement.
>Italian food is awesome because of small family-owned restaurants where people put love into making the food
>American food is shit because chain restaurants suck
>America literally has no small family-owned restaurants where people put care and love into making the food
Experience some REAL American food, then come back.
The difference is that the restaurants you talk about are extremely rare and people generally don't even value them as much as they should in favor of chain shit.
I'm sure that america has the sporadic quality places somewhere, like every place.
In italy, though, that is everywhere. That is the standard.
Italian food regulations
>if you are to run a business about making food, you must use top-quality ingredients in order to provide the best experience for the customers, both in terms of quality and health
American food regulations
>if it doesn't kill too many people at once, whatevs
Gee, I wonder which one leads to higher quality food and which one encourages low cost/low quality practices.
>The wife of Cranky Kong. Wrinkly first appeared as director of Kong Kollege, where she provided game hints. Did you know King K. Rool was also a student of hers? After her passing, she appeared in Donkey Kong 64 as a ghost, where again... she provided hints.
I don't think you're answering his question.
Here, I'll help you:
If you asked me what kind of food is known in my region, I'd give quite a lot of specific names and recipes. I wouldn't tell him "ah yeah we can make tacos and everything else".
Since I'm curious as well, point the shit out, please
>The wife of Cranky Kong. Wrinkly first appeared as director of Kong Kollege, where she provided game hints. Did you know King K. Rool was also a student of hers? She died of an horrible disease
Every board sucks at what it was made for.
Good job, my fellow italians (or food enthusiasts in general), keep doing god's work.
I'll say, it's hard to accept it. When I first visited america, I would never have thought their eating habits to be sub-par, because the country is rich. I need to be honest, it blew my mind that so many people ate shit, so I can understand why the ameribros have trouble believing that a shit-tier small country like italy could never have higher quality food culture than glorious US.
It was then that I learned that food quality is not directly related to its well-being.
Well then we're at a crossroads.
I can't tell you if the NA translation has more validity than the AUS translation. We'd have to read the JAP version, but even then Wrinkly Kong was created and subsequently killed by a British developer.
TELL ME ABOUT SHY GUY
