"Mario vs. Donkey Kong" , posted Tue 25 May 12:03post reply


Got to try it out.
It's fun.
Prerendered character sprites are nicely animated, even though they have that "prerendered patina" blur due to image compression. It's definitely more than just a visual upgrade of the original Donkey Kong game, which so many people derided it for, not that it doesn't have a good amount of Donkey Kong feel to it.

If anyone can tell me just wth Mario is saying when he starts chasing after DK in the intro, I'd be thankful.

"Are Pauline and Princess Peach the same?" , posted Tue 25 May 12:30post reply


When Shonen Jump talked about this game they referred to the Original Donkey Kong and said since that game Mario went on to become an All Star, Donkey Kong got a tie and Princess Peach became a Princess, or something along those lines. Now, in the Japanese version, does anyone know if Pauline from the Original Donkey Kong and Peach from Mario Bros. are the same exact person? Don't tell me they were changing character's names outside of Japan way back in the 80s, GRRR!

From the concept art I've seen they look radically different so I'm pretty sure they are not the same person.

And let's not forget about Daisy from Super Mario Land for the GameBoy. I always thought she was supposed to be the same princess, and Toad only said "Oh, Daisy!" after each stage as an exclamation, not identification. Does anyone know if they were ever declared as different princesses before Smash Bros. Melee?

Yeah those two were always different. A totally different team worked on Super Mario Land and I guess other than Mario and Luigi, didn't feel like using any of the mainstay characters.

Radish - Thanks. I always thought Pauline and Peach were different until Shonen Jump Jumped to the WRONG conclusion.

So Mario has Pauline, Peach and Daisy. Fat Boy sure has lots of Hoes!

If my memory serves me correctly, they were both seen as being separate characters in Mario Tennis for the N64.

Actually, Daisy is Luigi's.

If my memory serves me correctly, in the original SML for GB, Daisy was Mario's daughter who had been kidnapped by the evil space alien ... who's name I have forgot. I believe it's been retconned since then.

It isn't mentioned in the US manual. She's the Princess of Sarasaland, a peaceful world consisting of four kingdoms. Apparently, it was so peaceful that everyone shared the same royal family.

*mind does a backflip into a pretzel knot*

Of course not. Communism can't support a monarchy, only the politburo during the socialist stage of the revolution.

P.S. Mario = Stalin

Aside from the difficulty and those damn "superballs" that were fireflowers gone wrong, I remember thinking there was something else weird about SML when I was a kid but not knowing what...it was how they didn't change any of the Japanese names--every random monster sounded so exotic! Stupid superballs.

And commie Mario article, mama mia!
