@Knuckles-Fajita Not got to that point but man...looks horrendous.

@NintendoByNature Just watched the RGT85 video and I 100% agree with him. It's a shame the vid is getting so much hate...mostly with the "git gud" crowd and those insisting that's how the game has always been. But there's difficulty and there's broken difficulty. Imagine if Pokemon Let's Go played like the original Pokemon Yellow.

@Buizel RGT had it right. All I've had on Twitter is Git Gud and its like...if I aint enjoying a game, I aint gonna play.

Oh, and I've finally unlocked the final boss.....who cheats, by starting before you can.

Because you know, we needed blatant BS on top of the game's usual BS.

@Knuckles-Fajita @Buizel typical on YouTube and Twitter. Everyone is a smart @$$. The git gud crowd always bothered me. I never played the original and i was really on the fence about getting CTR but I'm pretty happy I held off. Super difficult games with no remorse just ruin the experience for me

Crash Racing isn’t perfect, but RGTs opinion is rather extreme. Is it difficult? Yes. But the drifting is actually a really cool mechanic, and the reason you can fall so many places behind when hit by an item is precisely because it has less rubberbanding. That’s the kind of thing rubberbanding is meant to address. It can work both for or against you, but you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

I’d give it a solid 7.5/10, with Team Sonic Racing at 8/10, Sonic Racing Transformed at 9/10 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (not the original) at 9.5/10.

Nonetheless, I do agree that the “git gud” bozos are annoying, even if I happen to agree Crash is a pretty good game.

The group that really aggravates me more than anything else though, is the “60fps or it’s trash” crowd. The “omg 30fps in 2019” people. As if every game on the planet is 60fps except for Switch games (Witcher 3, MH World, Assassin’s Creed, Red Dead, no problem, but if it’s a game on Switch watch out, it’s like gaming in the Stone Age.

A group that equally aggravates me are the people who just thrive off of criticism and tearing a game to shreds over the smallest things, intentionally scouring for even the slightest offense which they can prop on a pedestal and ostracize the game for, making it abundantly clear they hate the game with every fiber in their being yet they choose to continually talk about it in forums for weeks and months on end. If you hate the game that much why are you devoting so much time talking about it? Find a game that actually doesn’t wrench your gut and go talk about that. But that’s not an option for these people because they don’t like talking about games they’re excited for, they just like venting their hatred, and gaming forums are the perfect outlet.

@JaxonH Regarding the rubberbanding - I think RGT85 addresses this well. The AI has no trouble keeping up with, or overtaking you, regardless of how well you are performing, or whether you hit them with items. However the same can't be said for the human player, who is knocked back by the items (the rubber band pulls the CPU players forward, but not back to you when you get hit). So the rubberbanding* is working for the CPU, not the player.

Although, maybe I do actually need to git gud. But with such a steep difficulty curve?

*Well, it might not actually be rubberbanding - could just be that the CPU characters are just abnormally fast.

Crash Team Racing makes me realize further another potential reason why F-Zero has been dead for so long. The F-Zero franchise has even bigger difficulty issues than CTR and that wouldn't reach Nintendo's standards as since the DS/Wii era Nintendo has always been about approachable main game and leave BS for bonus post-game stuff.

They may be unsure on how to make F-Zero approachable so instead they just put the franchise on indefinite hiatus.

Difficulty can be easily tuned and adjusted though. There’s no rule that says they must implement the exact same difficulty as the previous entry.

Pretty sure it’s just because futuristic racers aren’t popular anymore. Then again, that hasn’t stopped them from cranking out 2D platformers (which for the record, I’m EXTREMELY greatful for, as DKC Tropical Freeze is one of my favorite video games of all time, and New Super Mario Bros U is one of the finest 2D platformers ever made, at the same time their Kirby and Yoshi games are pretty mediocre, Wooly World aside... and I say mediocre on a sliding scale, because they are both enjoyable but very unmemorable).

I'd argue that Yoshi games are almost more collectible puzzle games first and platformers second. I can tell I would have adored Wooly World and Crafted World when I was a kid.

The difficulty in F Zero is definitely not BS though. If you lose in F Zero, it's because you're not good enough at it and need to practice more to improve your skills.

I remember reading an interview from around 2001 from a few of the developers who made F Zero Maximum Velocity, and they brought up something about the differences from Mario Kart and F Zero that always stuck with me.

"Yamagami: I think F-ZERO goes to the opposite extreme that Mario Kart does. Mario Kart's appeal is using items strategically against your opponents. On the other hand, F-ZERO is a game to challenge yourself. You burn away your life 0.01 second at a time challenging your limits (laugh)"

I have noticed that Mario Kart is sort of starting to stray away from this. Mario Kart Super Circuit (which was released around the time of this interview) is easily the most skill based in the series and requires very smart item usage to do well on the later cups. But now it seems to focus more on the driving itself, with the items just being there to annoy you.

...Not that I always mind the chaotic items. I love 64 and Double Dash for how insane their 4 players races could get.

Having an absolute ebay blitz. Got my new Switch coming tomorrow so I went looking for games on ebay.

Found Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade 2, all for great prices. I think those 4 games will probably cover me for quite a while!

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Dezzy enjoy your fantasic system with your great games.
Only Xenoblade and Zelda could suck jou for 1000+ hours haha (atleast that did it for me)

1000+ hours would be more than enough sucking for me too, thank you Zelda, when you're ready.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Well, Super Mario Odyssey won't take you that long, @Dezzy but BotW & XBC2 are both great ... Never played Splatoon 2 but obviously, being online, you can carry on as long as there's anyone else doing it

Well, I haven't played it, @Anti-Matter .... But I think it's all online, even the 'story' part Must be some here who know more definitely, though

@Anti-Matter The story part, as well as the Octo expansion is playable offline. Clothes are only usable in online modes, and are only available to purchase while online as the availability changes for everyone on a daily basis. I believe the local multiplayer and training modes are available offline as well, but I haven't tested those personally.

@BruceCM

Yes, I have played BotW extensively on the Wii U already. I bought this version just for the better framerate and resolution to be honest! Lol
