AuthorRe: What's with Nintendo and big noses?
theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon

in all honesty, though, a nose can really make or break a character. they can add humor or strength depending on how they're drawn; tiny or nondescript noses can make a character plain or pretty, and that's not always what people want, i don't think. Could you imagine Mario with a turned-up little ski-slope nose like the princess has? with that big mustache of his, it'd look like some kind of kid in a plumber costume. or Ganondorf without his now-characteristic beak? That nose of his makes him look powerful and hawk-like, as if he'd tear into you as soon as look at you. Slap a pretty nose on him and he stands to lose his aura of strength; you'd be left staring at his huge mouth and wondering why his face all doesn't fit together anymore.

that said, Nibelilt is probably the closest to the real reason why so many iconic characters have big noses; they're just easier to draw. :3

i don't get it. are we not supposed to voice how we feel about games on the internet anymore for fear of hurting some dev's feelings? After all, if we're not saying we didn't like one thing, we're praising something else, and heaven forbid we're not ladling out our praises equally enough across the board. don't want them getting jealous of one another or something. or are we only supposed to voice how we feel about games on forums not dedicated to video games? that way, we won't have large clusters of gamers getting together to say things.

Cry me a river? The only thing that's changing is people can find others with similar opinions more easily than before, and they have a larger voice on the internet than they do alone IRL. The video-game business has always been dog-eat-dog, there's been nothing kind about any of it from the beginning.

I'm pretty sure I did my damnedest to place first in every race, same as any other time I've played a Mario Kart game. How do you not 'pick on' anyone who isn't your own player character in a Mario Kart race?

Wait, no, don't bother answering that, because I don't care how you're going to spin it to continue painting yourself the martyr. I'm done with this thread. Enjoy your community.

how? we weren't taking away places from your group, you only had maybe three or four players going at once. there was no way to glitch and no way to cheat, they were fair races, and you can't tell me it wasn't fun to attempt to race against a room half-full of trettons, powas, or daisies. we had no unfair advantage over anyone else playing in that room — in fact, we were at a disadvantage, those of us who weren't used to using a Mii character to race with.

@LJM: look, i'm sorry, but i've kept my mouth shut for too long. we had a lot of fun at first and now these guys aren't even worth the trouble of me breaking out my MK7 kart. I'd rather race worldwide as a Tretton, at least those guys don't drop out after one race.
