Super Mario Maker

Discussion in 'Other Video Game Discussion' started by Bguy7, Sep 4, 2015.

    In anticipation of Super Mario Maker's release in a week, I figured that we could use a place to talk about it, share level ideas, and discuss cool and interesting levels that we find online.

    I'm curious what other people are thinking about making. The first thing I want to do is create an entire Mario game. I'll try to make it as realistic as possible while also adding my own flair that could only be done in Mario Maker. Hopefully I'll get enough stars so I can upload them all. What do you guys want to make?

    I want to make a ton of cool boss fights that you'd never see in other Mario games :). Not necessarily hard, but lots of fun! I'm also planning on making themed levels using amiibo costumes. I might also make the Super Mario Bros 1-1 stage in Super Mario World, with my own little twist :)

    Definitely hyped for this game, if I could find my Gamepad charger, I'll be having a blast with making levels.

    I'd like to do some sort of tribute to Iwata, which will probably be easier to create when I unlock all the tools. Maybe something based off of Balloon Fight could be possible. In any case, I'm excited for the release of this game this coming Friday!

    At first I really wasn't into this when the game was first revealed but it's looking to be one of the biggest Mario/Nintendo titles yet. I have to walk almost a mile to my nearest GameStop to pick up my preordered copy but it's going to be worth it.

    So am I! I'm feeling like a kid right now. Like I did when I first started playing Mario. Just watching some of the vids that are out there of people making levels (IGN, etc.) are making me that much more excited about it. Cannot wait to start building.

    From what I saw it looks like we'll be playing via Game Pad. But I'm wondering if I can play levels via Game Pad, since right now my tv's controller is dead (not my AT&T one, but the one that came with the tv) and I'm not able to change to the channel I need to in order to use the Wii U via my tv for now :(. Still can play games on my Game Pad thankfully though.

    The game looks really great and fun, but unfortunately, I won't be able to enjoy it, thanks to not having enough money for a Wii U... *sigh*

    But I think a lot more improvements could be done with it. Like incorporating art styles that are not necessarily Mario-like (I think they stated it back when the game was first announced), or being able to change the scenery or upload your own custom music. Hopefully Nintendo updates the game often with new tools to use every so often.

    You should see the people on Serenes for bashing the game for not having slopes

    I can't wait for this game to come out! There are so many levels I want to make. Like a Pokemon one. And if I ever get a FE amiibo, a FE one.

    I feel like that would kind of ruin the point of the game. It's Super Mario Maker, so it really should be Mario-like. Otherwise it's just some generic platformer creator.

    Yeah, I've seen a lot of people complaining about what this game doesn't have. Either they don't realize how much stuff actually is in this game, or they don't want to admit that the Wii U has a good game, and are looking for any reason to justify the game as a failure.

    Anyways, I am beyond psyched for this game. In all honesty, I'm more excited for it than I was for Smash Bros. or Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. I recently had a random stroke of genius and have decided that the first level I'll make will be called "A Mario to the Past" and involve using Warp Pipes to travel between the Ground Stage "Light World" and the Cave Stage "Dark World," solving puzzles as you go, and having to travel back and forth to find the right path.

    The art style can change a bit, but all the other Mario things can remain. It will still feel Mario. That's what I meant.

    But the art style (and the music, which you mentioned as well) is part of what makes it Mario. I don't know, it just seems a little out there to me.

    So, do they have anything to replicate Megaman's disappearing blocks? I really can't think of anything that would work other than donut lifts, but not the best choice.

    I don't know anything about Megaman, but if your talking about blocks that disappear when you step on them, doughnut blocks are about the only choice. There is also blue moving platforms (which you get by shaking normal moving platforms). Like doughnut blocks, they fall out underneath you as well.
  14. Akwakwak

    Akwakwak Chu Chu Yeah!

    Dat release date tho.

    Super Dystopian Mario World is what I will make.

    I can already imagine the many unfair Mario levels people with sick twisted minds will only think of.

    -A level with nothing but spikes
    -A level with nothing but invisible spikes
    -A level with Bob-ombs and invisible Bob-ombs, Bullet Bills and invisible Bullet bills etc... you people get the drift.

    Don't say I didn't warn you.

    I think that in order for you to be able to upload it, it has to have been beaten by somebody, probably you or someone playing your console since, from what I've heard, impossible levels can't be uploaded.

    lol But really, there is so much I want to do with this game. I do hope we can create whole worlds, because if so I'm going all out. I'm doing a Metroid-like world, a LoZ-like world, a Pokémon-like world, and I'll even try for Mega Man. Plus, I do hope Peach is in this game, because I'll create a whole world just for her.

    Wow, I finally have a reason to buy a Wii U.

    Thankfully, the only things you can make invisible are question blocks.

    Or so I've heard.
  18. woot21

    woot21 super noob

    No they are blocks that disappear and reappear in a set pattern.

    Yeah, there's not really anything that fits that description, sorry. You could attach platforms to a track, and have them move in and out of sight in a pattern, but I know that's not the best solution.
  20. Akwakwak

    Akwakwak Chu Chu Yeah!

    Oh, well that's good news I suppose, the more you know.
