ONM's Gav Murphy reveals what the advert would look like.
Harcore gets thrown around way to much. Some people say it HD games and some say violent games. I say its fun games that are hardcore.
I was expecting a Mario-esque Heavy Rain... Maybe something like.......................... Mario is a depressed, down & out plumber who's only source of happiness in his sad life, is his girlfriend (Peach), who one day gets abducted by a serial killer, who's only known as 'the Bowser' (his trademark is that leaves a hollowed out turtle shell at the scene of every crime). Bowser wants to father a child (Bowser Jnr) with the helpless Peach in some sort of sick satanic ritual, after which, Peach will have served her purpose and he will 'dispose' of her. And you, as the player, assumes control of the protagonist Mario, in which you must follow the trail of clues & track down the Bowser Killer (over the course of 9 months) before it's all too late! And at the end game of the game your faced with the decision to either pummel the defeated Bowser to a grisly pulp with a piece of copper plumber piping or turn him over to the authorities. Now that's Hardcore Mario!
Aka peach gets raped by a Turtle? Yes that makes sense
Take a look at this: http://www.cracked.com/arti...
I didn't know that "hardcore mario" meant "gameplay clips from mario games with less color and terrible music"
Yeah, now that's some casual editing-skills
assuming hardcore here means blood gore and guts then i'll cease to be a gamer
i know right, super nintendo may have been my first system to play but last i thought games were about having fun playing them not about what it is your playing. assuming that made any sense as i knew i had a good point going on but lost it as i was typing lol.
I thought the original Mario games were already for the hardcore gamer.
Original yes, current no. IMO the originals were AMAZING. SM64 is still the BEST IMO. As of late though there hasn't been a single good Mario game for me.
And what exactly did they do differently to make it "non-hardcore". On a second thought don't answer. Your answer will be gibberish anyways.
@sidar Lol so I'm not allowed to have an opinion. The original Mario games were AMAZING IMO. They were something new and there was nothing out there that could compete with them. The issue is that the franchise hasn't changed much over the years and story wise it is becoming more and more childish. They just no longer appeal to ME. You third sentence doesn't make any sense either. Hate as much as you like, I don't care.
Anyone's who's played through Mario Galaxy 2 already knows MArio is hardcore. That game is hard it'da bitch lol.
That is terrible.
This is not funny at all...
Mario is, was, and always will be hardcore. Mario represents gameplay and innovation. That little plumber saved gaming a long time ago when I was a young gamer. It wasn't about how violent or "adult" the topic was. It was about gameplay. Mario has always stayed true to that and I respect Nintendo for it. It's the gameplay that makes it hardcore. Not just blood, guts and bad language. There is no platformer on the same level as Mario. There's a reason for that. If that's not hardcore then screw the hardcore.
you want a hardcore mario game, make levels as hard or harder than those in the "special" world in mario galaxy 2.
I dont mean to burst this guys bubbles but mario is already hardcore....just cuz he aint a gritty character does not mean the game isnt hardcore....just look at the first few marios they were so hardcore and difficult that the levels had to be changed for the US hahhaa.
Hardcore by todays standards is fanboyism, blood, gore and ugly developed characters and Michael Bay. I leave that to easily amused people.
I thought that trailer was very hardcore, because by today's standards isn't hardcore what people call generic brown/grey first person shooter games that all look the same and offer no innovation what so ever to gaming as a whole, let alone their own genre?
This is a funny article Galaxy 1 and 2 seem more hardcore then that trailer does to me.
I didn't know 51 seconds could feel like a waste of time...
