So how badly do you think hes going to shit on Mario Sunshine?
>>
I think he might like it.
>>
FIGURATIVELY WHO
>>
When we are going to get a youtube celebrity board
>>
>That feel when Matthew reviews games you've already played so you don't have to worry about spoilers.
>>
>>268282402
As much as /v/ dumps on him sometimes, I think his review style is the best out there. It actually feels like a critique of the game within the parameters of the medium, instead of a checklist that almost every other reviewer does.
>>
I think he will criticize it while talking about it's positives and negatives

And then /v/ will say he either said it was shit, or say that he loved it, because /v/ is full of children who speak only in extremes and incredibly rarely actually want to discuss videogames.

You can also be sure that once the video comes out more people will be posting WHO and SHILL and VIRAL and BAAW YOUTUBE CELEBS instead of actually talking about the game. These people, they are the biggest faggots of all. They "care about the quality of the board" while contributing absolutely nothing other than spam when they could instead just talk about the videogame being discussed.
>>
He's the best reviewer out there because he never integrates fun into his videos because he knows fun is subjective.

I hope he tears that piece of shit game apart. It's the worst Mario game I can think of.

3D world is worse IMO.

Sunshine, if nothing else, tried new things. Especially in comparison to the 3 games that came after it.
>>
He's said in his Dustforce streams that he doesn't hate it by any stretch of the imagination, and it isn't a bad game per say, it's just not that good of a Mario game.

his videos are too long for my e-autism to handle but i watched his "journey vs dear esther" video and it was well done

I agree with this. I like that he treats every detail as equally worth noting. I know a lot of /v/ will just say he has autism, but I think that he does it because no matter how small or large a detail, there's -someone- out there that finds that detail important and it might nag at them, even if no one else really cares and it's just "nitpicking" to a majority of people.

Also: I don't think he's going to be overly negative in his review of Sunshine just because I think Sunshine shares a lot of the traits that make Wind Waker one of Matthew's favorite Zelda; it tries new things for the series instead of just doing the same thing they always do.

Oh great, another review on a game that can be considered ancient at this point.
I can't wait to here all the amazing insight and logic he brings to the table, that I probably thought of hundreds of years ago.
And even if I didn't, I couldn't give less of a crap.
>>
>>268284814
Every critique can be argued for or against. Speaking in terms that are generally agreed upon makes a good review and speaking in biased and personal terms makes a bad one.

This game has swimming, I don't like it because the control options are limited.

This games has swimming, I like it because the swimming allows for a wider range of exploration as well as a risk reward system revolving around the life bar.

two opposite opinions that are argued with objective parts of the game.
>>
>>268284603
That's what an in depth analysis from a fan of the game is. If you want a quick summary of features you can check out IGN.

His videos are made for people that are clearly already fans of the games, him pointing out that the addition of the side flip jump was probably added later to increase the skill ceiling of players that want to keep momentum was something I hadn't thought of before. Of course it's a small 'nitpicky' point, but I'd take that over someone telling me a bunch of shit I already know.
>>
>>268285684
Okay. They have a relaxing atmosphere, a wide variety of different moves to use which you can experiment with, gorgeous visuals, tight controls and level design which is entertaining despite being fairly easy. The games are also really fucking fun to speedrun.

>>268286098
They offer little to no challenge. My sister who has never beaten a video game in her life at 29 years old, beat Nightmare in Dreamland during a hospital stay.

The variety in power-ups and abilities don't mean a whole lot if you can insta-kill 96% of the enemies just by eating them and flying over them anyway.

Level designs offer almost no variety besides mini-bosses since Kirby can jump as many times as you want.

Most bosses amount to the same thing: suck up the apple or star they leave behind and shoot it back at them.

>>268286853
>They worked just fine, with a minimum amount of waggling.
The way Mario moves in the game is clearly a step backwards from 64 and sunshine. Also the spin is just the kick from 64.
People consider the games good because there are no other platform games on the Wii.

>>268287013
Animal crossing also plays differently from 90% of games. And there isn't even a focus on adventuring or combat or anything requiring skill or motor function

Kirby packages itself as a platformer, there's bottomless pits, monsters and bosses, yet it's the most piss-easy walk in a park platformer there has ever been
>>
>>268286786
>Easy = bad
Faulty logic, especially considering that it's relative. The Kirby games aren't meant to be very challenging, but they still have a nice balance between making you put effort when necessary and being easy.
>Level designs offer almost no variety
Yeah, between going through non-linear treasure hunts, solving puzzles to get items and jumping around on linear platforming-oriented levels there's no variety what-so-ever!
>Most bosses amount to the same thing
As opposed to something like Megaman where you jump and shoot? The core mechanics being simple doesn't mean everything else is. There are different timings to when you should suck up a star and shoot it back at them. Different powers are more effective against different bosses, too.
>>
>>268287192

I hope the Sunshine video brings up less obvious points because what he said in the SM64 review has been said so many times now it's gotten predictable. I could basically figure the entire review out point by point when I saw the title.
Still, some things were new to me, like the story about the rabbit being one of the first parts of the early build. Not sure why he was so hard on swimming. I thought it was pretty nice.
>>
>>268286350

Not him, but I felt that Galaxy 1 and 2 were terribly linear and boring. They had no challenge to them at all and I went in with the expectation of Mario 64 in a bigger scale, yet I felt so much more limited when playing Galaxy

What the fuck you are talking about? I didn'tt mention AC nor the challengue of Galaxy, wich by the way is inexistent until the last 10 stars of the game and even there it's not that difficult.

Spin is just a replacement kick.
But makes it a major feature instead of another ability Mario is capable of use.

>It had enjoyable platforming and offered something fresh and new.
Sonic Adventure 2
>>
>>268287013
The difference between Kirby and AC is that Kirby has ignored potential for challenge. AC is a life-sim that gives you goals that can't be accomplished as easily as completing a Kirby level/boss. The reward in Animal Crossing lies in it's carrot-on-a-stick style, which works well here, given the fact that life actually works that way. Nobody pays off the mortgage to their house in a day, they have to earn it.

The AC series is good. You're just an assmad Kirbyfag grasping at straws.

>>268287123

>>
>>268287014

Not the person you responded too but in 3D World your character can only take 3 hits before dying 6 if you have a powerup stored. The number of powerups per stage are limited.

Contrast that to the other games where coins restore Mario's health. There are 100+ HP worth of healing on each stage and 64 and Sunshine where Mario's HP is up to 8.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMJZQGwDcSI

Matthew should've talked more about the music. I mean he mentioned that it was fewer tracks and that some were reused, but man Mario 64 manages to have completely new tracks, yet still feel completely like Mario without having to fucking remix the Mario main theme all the time

>>
>>268283296
I'm hoping he sets a new standard for other journalists and reviewers on how to review games.

The fact that he talks about the game mechanics and explains in good detail in what ways they work and don't work shows me he has a great amount of respect for the medium. This has been quite lacking in the reviews you'll see on the major review sites today. It often feels like they just give it quick surface treatment move on.

He also seems to actually understand the difference between a review and a critique.
>>
>>268288034

/v/ loves him actually. Most his viewerbase are people on /v/
>>
>>268288006
I would say yes.
The player should not have to actively think about the controlls, they should come natural after a while. That doesn't mean they have to be simplistic or easy to learn, just natural enough to not be a hinderance at any times.
>>
>>268288034
>find out /v/ hates him for some reason
I think it's the other way around. He has a bunch of fans on /v/, which in return causes a lot of backlash since /v/ is full of people who do dislike what others like. I'm not saying they make up the majority or anything, but, you have to be honest, they exist and are very vocal.
He also has a habit of showing up in some threads when called(Matthewmatosis, Matthewmatosis, Matthewmatosis) which can cause some derails, upsetting some.

>>268286917
There are less levels but they're also much bigger. It's only gimped platforming if you think it doesn't expand the platforming, which it does. They're are 3 different nozzle that expand what you can do. Most missions and bosses revolve around exactly what the game is about... you know cleaning up the island. I don't know waht's wrong with the music
>>
>>268288034
Never listen to /v/ when it is negative. except when they start writing extremely in depth analysis of every single flaw. Then it's reliable.
Positive opinions are normally more logical here.
>>
>>268288034
Needs to be said more. Although most of /v/ probably doesn't hate him, since the vocal minority is always the loudest. I think >>268288190 is right actually.

Not sure about any reviewers who are better. MrBtounge is about the same level of quality, although not as frequent.
>>
>>268288324
But the open levels in Sunshine had shit tier platforming outside of the harbor. Having an open level doesn't make it automatically better.

>>268282402
Considering that he said that the reason he enjoys Mario games is the jumping, probably a lot.
>>
>>268286862

Not a reviewer but MrBTongue has a lot of cool videos on topics usually related to storytelling, world building and such. It seems that he's mostly interested in RPG's, though.

I love Matthewmatosis.

Video seems pretty right on, it's amazing how much Mario 64 did right on the first try.
>>
>>268288415
MrBtongue is different. He doesn't seem to talk about the video games themselves as much and doesn't analyse them in the same way as Matthew does. That is, focusing on gameplay and design. MrBtongue usually draws comparisons to various things that are not game related and talks about story, setting, atmosphere more. It's kind of a meta review, more than a game review, or something. I don't really know how to describe it, but, it's interesting to listen to.

I only watched his DkS2 review and it was disgusting, all he did was present his opinions about the souls games as objective facts, nitpick endlessly and whine that the game wasn't similar to its predecessors. When he said that the music was disappointing compared to DkS1 I cringed. People actually give attention to this guy?
He made some good points but anybody would do that in a 45 minute video.
His other videos may be better but his DKS2 review left a sour taste in my mouth.

>>268289126
Try the Bioshock Infinite one if you've played it.

Super Bunnyhop is also a pretty good reviewer. He's not as analytic as Matthew, nor as meta as MrBtongue and seems to focus more on what a game can deliver in terms of experience rather than how a game is designed and built. His Dark Souls review is a good example, but, I think most people must be sick of fucking Dark Souls reviews at this point.
I'd also say his Shovel Knight review was spot on.

>>268288626

>you're not allowed to say bad things about a video game

I actually disagree. I think he's improved greatly. I wish he would throw in the odd mediocre joke every now and then like he did in his earlier videos.

Very few people do really in depth reviews of games like he does anymore, and all you ever see now is shitty clickbait garbage. We need more Matthews man.

No it wasn't. In fact my biggest complaint about Shovel Knight would be that it's pure nostalgia pandering which, despite having some original ideas doesn't utilize them nearly enough. I got through most of the game with muscle memory acquired from Megaman games.

Well, I disagree.
I hate to use this argument, but, I think that's intended. Like he said, it's a game about nostalgia, not just with nostalgia mixed in like many other pseudo-retro indie games. Of course you would do well at Shovel Knight if you've played MegaMan, the game is designed to be played like that.
I hope I don't seem like a shill, but, that's my opinion.

Matthew is not an expert on music, the same way he's not an expert on the inner workings of storytelling. That isn't to say he can't do a good job of critiquing either, I'd say his MGS reviews show that, but his real strength lies in pure game design.

I get that, it's just that a lot of people claim that Shovel Knight is much more than nostalgia pandering while I really don't see it. It goes through a lot of ideas borrowed from other games with the intent to be constantly entertaining, but fails to push any of those ideas to their limit or reinvent them. I still loved the game a lot because it's really well made, but it's very by-the-numbers and kinda shallow.

>>268290089
No. No one who's played the game twice loves the intro. In fact, I doubt anyone really enjoys the first three or four shines in the game. It's annoying having so many levels locked away at the start and having to go through specific levels to progress the story. What I usually do is quickly do the required missions to unlock the next level until they're all there, then go back and get the other shines.
It's a bother, but, the actual game is, in my opinion, better than 64.

>Also I think too many people take what he says at face value purely because it sounds intelligent.

Oh, boy.

If he wants to call it a critique then he should critique it, and that includes dissecting elements and seeing how they work in the game. Just because it's not a thesis doesn't mean he should use whatever term he wants.

>>268290979

I understand dark souls 2 is greatly flawed, but that doesn't mean his ignorant, nostalgic, and outright wrong beliefs should be allowed.

>>268291137

He complained about the lore despite it being just as vague as in dark souls. He said the story made no sense despite the fact that the story was told in the exact same style, ie exposition shit on you through the intro and a single npc. And he complained about the intro making no sense despite the human effigy explaining everything.

All of his complaints are based around flaws of the series. While that doesn't excuse dark souls 2's problems, it doesn't justify his endless dick sucking of dark souls and demons souls.

No actually. He even said there were elements that he liked, but he never went into discussion about them.

I think that's a very poor way of putting it, I would say that he focuses more on the objective and what can be quantified, what mechanics work and which don't. I don't know as though he ignores fun on principle but he's better than other reviewers in that he doesn't prioritize how the game made him feel or whether it was cool or awesome or fun. These are too vague.

I'm an oldfag, I remember the Internet's reaction to Super Mario Sunshine when it was released, and it had a lot of mixed opinions, at best. There were quite a few people calling it the worst Mario game ever. This sudden wave of love for it didn't come around until several years after its release, when I can only assume people who were children and had fond childhood memories of it grew up.

>>268296884
Dark Souls 2's problem isn't core gameplay systems (although I think there's a few problems there too), but rather a bunch of little things littered all throughout the game which are badly done or baffling.

If it sounds like nitpicking, it's partially because it is, and partly because that's how a clusterfuck works: it's a bunch of little things going wrong that sour the entire experience.

You can brush off stupid stuff like the windmill as isolated incidents, but that's what makes the game a disappointment: it's a string of these instances, and in particular how these small things either failed to improve from its predecessors or regressed.

shit dude that's exactly what I think about Demolition D too.

I think he's a pretty chill reviewer and he can be pretty funny. But the number of sycophants in his comments going DEMO SEMPAI PLEASE NOTICE ME is so cringe worthy.

I saw one guy post 'the person playing x game in the video is really shit' and then Demo replied 'that's me' and he went all 'OOOH DEMO SEMPAI SO KAWAII AND COOL.'

My only solace is knowing it probably weirds demo out as much as it does me.

I know he'll tear Skyrim apart (as if enough people haven't done that already).

My problem with Sunshine is that while it DOES feel like a bit of an evolution to 64, it also feels like a huge sidestep. It no longer feels just like Mario platforming, but rather Mario and his gimmick accessory doing tropically-themed challenges. In 64, there was no real overlaying theme or motif. It was Super Mario, but in 3D. Every level had its own specific theme. Meanwhile, Sunshine's areas all had tropical spins, which really just kinda seems out there for Mario. The inclusion of F.L.U.D.D. also felt out of place for a mainline Mario game.

Galaxy felt like a real progression of Mario, though. Luma didn't feel intrusive and out of place. Sure, he gave Mario the ability to spin in midair, but he was able to do that in other games as well. Shaking your hands to jump when over a bottomless hole felt intuitive. It was only natural for me to feel a slight bit of panic when facing certain death, and shaking the Wii Remote didn't feel out of place as a response. Everything in the game felt grander in scale. It was the natural evolution of the series. Space didn't feel like a detour, but rather the next step. The problem with that is that you gotta wonder how you can top space. The levels had a lot of variety to them, and despite the fact that the game was somewhat linear for some levels, that isn't really an objective problem.

Couple weeks hopefully. The scripts for Sunshine and Galaxy 1 are already well underway. I frontloaded some of the work for the series to make sure I'd be happy to do all five which is why there was a longer gap between the Oddworld one and this one.

I want to get all of these and the Dark Souls commentary out before Bloodborne releases. Remains to be seen whether I can manage that.

If I was going to do an SMT series Nocturne was definitely included. By the time the Mario series is finished I'll probably hate the idea of doing another series for a while though. I'd really like to get DDS1&2 in there though for the sake of variety so it's kind of dependant on whether I can get proper footage of those games or not. I want it to happen but I don't want to get your hopes up.

There's enough people giving their opinion on the industry. Too many if anything which is why I stick to games, I want to bring the focus back to the games themselves.

Agreed. The gameplay is notoriously bad, that even diehard fans can't defend, but the overall story, characters, and ending D are very unique and interesting.
>>
>>268303125
I don't think it'd be interesting because Drakengard's a shit game and people didn't contend that until 3. What's interesting about it is how the developers hate the player, and the batshit insane writer that makes for an unbelievable trainwreck of a story, where every aspect from weapon descriptions to FMVs are infused with comical edge and shittiness.

You don't get any of that in a review. To understand why anyone even cares about the game at all requires, well, an LP showing off the depths of insanity.

Of course none of this applies to Drakengard 2 which is both bad and boring.

People hate sunshine? My only complaint is it got too hard for me but I was like 11 or so.

If you say a goomba in real life, would you kill it?

Ok then, why is he not doing it?

First, I'm utterly surprised he decided to tackle the 3D Mario games & I say this because we spoke to each other via e-mail last year about those games.

Last December, I sent him a letter of appreciation for the quality content he provides & I asked him questions - one of which was about whether or not he will be reviewing the 3D Mario games games. He later responded - much to my excitement & my enjoyment - & addressed my letter as well as my questions. He sounds like a great kid, he really does.

I've posted the letter here censoring my name & both of our e-mail addresses - I don't want to risk having you guys spamming his inbox.

As, for Mario Sunshine, I think he will talk about how tedious it was to collect all the blues coins. The blues coins were a nightmare to find but I found them eventually. He's going to talk about the corny voice-acting, the watermelon mission, how the turbo nozzle was vastly underused, etc. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the rest of his series since I've played them all - hurray!

I sent him another letter asking him more questions, so let me know if you guys want to see his response.

3D Land isn't one of the ones he's doing. Case and point.

Don't forget about Nier, which corrects a lot of this and takes the series in a very interesting direction.

It has passable to good gameplay, open world, and a much more focused story. Also, it's a pretty depressing game, so I'd be interested to see what MM thinks of it. I know many parts of the games are terrible, the Drakengard series is my favorite still.

what did you think of it?

I have heard some serious fucking hatred for the game over the years. I remember Giant Bomb shitting all over it hurting me deep. It's not like it was my first Mario game or anything, so nostalgia isn't blinding me. My first was World, which I adore and still play to this day, but it seems like the majority opinion is that if you like Sunshine you are a dipshit.

I think he will bring it up and compliment on how tricky they were. If he calls it tedious, he probably will also mention how they are optional content, for those willing to 100% the game. Maybe draw a comparison to WW's figurine quest?
It'll be interesting to hear what he has to say. I don't doubt he'll point out new things I've never thought about. I personally love Sunshine, so it's gonna be exciting to see his opinion on it.
Good god, I am a huge faggot for being this excited.

So just curious

What was his answer on the Okami question?
