Hmm, I was going to wait until October 2020 to play this, but now that I'm done with Death Stranding and there's nothing else coming out until March and I've detoxed from Halloween 2019, maybe I'll actually check it out this week.
Started it last night, and, ah, yup, okay. I get it now. This is a straight-up Mario movie. I'm down!
I was about to say that there's a surprisingly large amount of spiders in this game, but come to think of it, Nintendo puts a lot of spiders in their games, huh? Still, having one crawl across your face right at the beginning seemed a little intense...
...I'm curious how scary kids would find this game. I was pretty spooked by the original when I played it as a kid. It was creepy! This one's scariness seems a little more cartoony, but a bit more refined as well. Stuff is falling off the wall, there are fakeouts where Polterpup is jumping out at you, it's really polished! The animations and the physics go really well together. The game is actually making me laugh, too, which is surprising! It's got a very "modern animated movie" sense of humor, this bodes well for the Minion Mario Movie.
Am I the only one who feels a lot of inspiration from Goofy? The narrator during the E3 trailer was basically the same guy!
@Secret_Tunnel I was 22? when the first Luigi's Mansion came out and it creeped me out! Though to be honest, that probably had more to do with things that were going on in my life at the time which I won't get into right now that left me in a sort of constantly anxious / depressive mood. Pretty much anything even remotely creepy would creep me out back then. I couldn't even play Resident Evil games for awhile, trying to would leave me in such a weird mood.
Apparently the first pack of the DLC released yesterday out of nowhere. Unfortunately, the stuff it adds to the ScareScraper mode is now confirmed to just be cosmetics and not actually add or change anything about the gameplay itself. Bit of a bummer, but oh well, at least now I don't have to buy it.
However, the regular game update did add a few things, including an option for 20 floors and some other odds and ends, so that's nice. Anyone here interested in playing?
