What if she... Didn't have different movement mechanics? Remove the float, who needs it

Then people would complain that they added Peach in as a Mario clone? You can't win with gamers.

You could just have Peach be an NPC, who's just around, doin' stuff. Maybe she has an item shop. Maybe she flies the spaceship. Let her have a nice time not being a prisoner, I think.

It is not actually a review, but a series of short stories about fictional people and how they might enjoy Destiny 2. Underneath the whole thing you can feel the silent scream of "I am an English Major and games journalism is beneath me."

the Galaxy games had another playable character with a slightly different playstyle, and they were similar in scope to this.

But in the end it's could of, would of, should of, and it relies on more aspects of resources and development than people give it credit for.

I dunno. Like I said, you don't necessarily have to change her role in the game to make it a bit more positive

Just have Peach be a playable character, as it was in the best Mario game: Super Mario RPG, Legend of the Seven Stars.

On the hand I can respect doing something different because, let's be honest: it's destiny 2. You already know if you like destiny or not, kotaku isn't going to change your mind on it.

On the other, much larger hand, Christ this is aaaaaawwwwwfffffuuuuuuulllllll and so long!

Wow, those reviews. Two games getting some of the best reviews of any game in the first year of a new console is pretty loving good.

PantsBandit posted:

Saying that adding another character with entirely different movement mechanics to a platformer with hundreds of unique challenges "isn't really that difficult" is loving absurd.

Yeah, I shouldn't have mentioned that at all, after all nothing in SM3DL changes after you unlock Luigi even though he can jump higher. Keep everything the same, maybe some sections would be harder/easier with her float and that's fine.

Some worlds with Peach, some Mario, some Luigi, some Toad. Then you get the variety without having to balance each level for all four.

(Then unlock play with all four after you get all the moons)

That game was never released in Europe, and therefore isn't canon.

Hopefully they gets fixed in the day one patch.

Rabbids crashed on me the second time I tried it. It wouldn't even boot up until I uninstalled it. Couldn't even play it during my lunch break because it wouldn't load until I redownload the patch and the Switch wouldn't connect to work's wifi.

Super Mario Protip for explorers. Don't run around looking for EVERY thing before you beat the boss. You'll drive yourself crazy and a ton of poo poo doesn't even show up until you beat the boss. At least on the level I am playing now.

Target computers have street dates locked in and there's no way to bypass or override it, it'll just refuse to sell you it.
