Super Mario 64

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Tokyo Game Show 2020 is in full swing and we aim to be your go-to Nintendo podcast of two friends yelling at each other. Age of Calamity and Monster Hunter: Rise are really doing it for us – especially Hyrule Warriors Impa. But until those games come out, we’ve got the big Halloween Animal Crossing update. Also, a mega-corporation buying a developer/publisher that has no problems developing/publishing on their own is never good for consumers.

Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, two Nintendo Directs came out and they’re pretty fresh! Monster Hunter Rise and Stories 2 look so tempting, and so many other games have us looking forward to the future. Also, Mario 3D All-stars is apparently emulated, but…is that really a problem? We also throw in some next-gen talk with the recent PS5 price and pre-order situation.

GameXplain has put together a comparison video for Super Mario 64 featuring the new Super Mario 3D All-Stars version for Switch and the original N64 release. Check it out below.

Our video series returns with a discussion about the recent Nintendo leaks. This video takes a look at what secrets were revealed and gives our thoughts on the morality of sharing this data. Hopefully we’ll also hear from all of you in the comments as well!

Check out the full video below and look forward to more video content soon.

There are more discoveries coming out of the latest Nintendo leak that was initially reported last week. We have some interesting news about Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, and more. Let’s go through it all.

Continuing on the recent Nintendo leaks, fans have been able to uncover and construct a couple of beta models from Super Mario 64. Along with an early look at Yoshi, we also have an interesting design for the Whomp enemies.

Here’s a look at both:

24 years after the launch of Super Mario 64 on the N64, Luigi’s model has finally been restored in the game.

Luigi was originally planned for the 3D platformer through splitscreen multiplayer. However, Nintendo abandoned the idea after the team was unable to implement the idea.

Yesterday brought us another substantial Nintendo leak. Game protoypes, source code, and other data began to spread online. If that wasn’t enough, we found out about a pitch for an online Pokemon PC title and were able to get an early look at some classic games, including beta sprites and early designs.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, yet another major Nintendo leak has turned up today. The latest one is all about the N64 such as the system’s operating system and lots of games.

Super Mario 64 has been around since 1996. Yet it wasn’t until today that a new discovery was made, and it has nothing to do with a speedrun or anything along those lines. Rather, it turns out that the game has a piece of buggy code, resulting in some incorrect animation relating to Mario.

The glitch comes down to the smoke Mario emits when he’s touched fire. Tucked away inside the game’s files is a better looking smoke particle. Just one line of code was updated to access it – “G_IM_FMT_RGBA” was changed to “G_IM_FMT_IA”, and then everything displays as it should.

Here’s a comparison between the two versions (original vs. fixed):

Hello, my green and red shells! In this episode of NEP, we’re talkin’ kart racing since both Mario and Sonic have games out! We also discuss mobile gaming in general and Nintendo’s approach to microtransactions; we then talk the state of the Sonic movie being pushed back to February 2020. Oni and Galen have plenty of opinions, and you sure don’t need to agree with them, but feel free to eavesdrop on our conversation anyway!

Thank you for 30 episodes! Help the show grow so we can make 30 more by sharing the podcast with a friend and rating us on your listening platform of choice, such as iTunes.
