What was the hardest star in this game and why was it the Hazy Maze Cave 100 coin star?

>> No.3231234

>>3231218

It's not hard, just tedious as fuck. Hazy Maze in general is a shitty stage. Mostly due to camera flipping out on you in closed environments.

Shifting sand lands 100 coin star is harder due to instadeath quicksand.

>> No.3231239

>>3231234
i guess so. but one time i collected the last coin from the maze emergency exit mesh - the only string of coins left in the level - and the star appeared above the mesh completely inaccessible. then i stopped playing for a while.

last time i played through mario 64 the last stars i needed were the tick tock clock 100 stars and something from rainbow ride, i forgot but it was a pain in the ass

Fuck. I did this just the other day. I had ever gotten all 120 stars on my original copy of Mario 64, so I decided to do that, and god DAMN.

But really all of the 100 coin stars are filler bullshit. Really, did we need 120 stars? I suppose it gave people something to do back then, but they could have cut all of them out and made the game have just 105 stars, and I don't think anyone would have complained.

It's pretty bad, I admit. It's been a while since I've played the original version of the game. It would have benefited so much from a c-stick. Although Ocarina of Time's camera is infinitely better with just the Z-targeting function.

Mirror's Edge had cool movement, but it didn't improve on SM64. Not by a long shot. The whole thing feels too automated and contrived. Running on a wall feels like you're using magnet shoes or something. The controls don't feel 1:1 like they do in SM64. They almost feel like QTEs sometimes.

The only thing wrong with the camera is that it's unintuitive and people don't know how to use it properly.

I don't think the camera ruins the entire game, bu it does make simple tasks more difficult. Too many times while playing I got "screwed" merely because I couldn't see what I was doing.
I'll always love Super Mario 64 for all the childhood memories it gave me, but trying to replay it now, some of the magic is lost when I realize it's not exactly the gameplay perfection I once thought.

Mirror's Edge just has you anticipating your movements because they need to be input and timed before the instant they need to be executed. Aside from that, I don't really think it's too much of a stretch that she's wearing some sort of high friction polymer ninja shoes, it is the future and all.

SM64 set the standard by which all 3d platformers to this day are still measured.

The controls are absolutely rock solid.

The level design is superb and the difficulty ramps up nicely.

Music is 10/10 and the art style allows the graphics to still look nice.

The game has one of the biggest and most dedicated speedrunning communities.

A lot of stars are filler. 8 coin stars are notoriously shitty as well. Also the 5 invisible trigger points that that require you to scour every inch of the level looking for that bullshit.

I wouldn't be surprised if devs meant for only 70 stars to be the legit ones. Probably less even. Force ejecting you out of the levels just added to the padding. Not to mention the fact that many levels were rushed as fuck, especially on the second floor. Tiny Huge Island, tal tal mountain, snowmans land and wet dry world are barren as fuck.

>Those in SM64 are are not bugs, they're FEATURES
If bugs can be a reason to hate a game, they can be a reason to like a game too. I'm not even sure what bugs you're referring to though. The vast majority of SM64 speedrunning is just utilizing the moveset developers intentionally programmed into the game. You can get a good time in 70 or 120 star just by having good movement. No clips or OOB necessary.
>Smash is a deep, legit fighting game
Melee is a deep game for sure. If you disagree you might be delusional or just incredibly naive. Maybe put your money where your mouth is.

There's more to Smash than Melee. In fact, a game where the only valid strategy is going full aggro can't be deep.

No, you can be good at games without speedrunning them. RTA is just the easiest way to quantify your skill level in most single player games.

There are exceptions to this obviously. Rhythm games, shmups, and most competitive multiplayer games have ways to quantify your skill without the use of RTA.

Bullshit. There are a lot of speedrunners that don't even know how to play the games normally. All they do is memorize the glitches and spend countless hours doing the same thing over and over again. Give them a similar game with a different level layout and tell them to beat it without using a guide and they'll probably be shit.

Random people to me, I'll never meet them and they'll probably never meet me. Nobody cares about this as much as you do, keep deluding yourself. I've seen people argue over the pointlessness of speedrunning and the like. Do what you want, but don't look down on others because they choose not to dedicate an absurd amount of time to a leisure activity

Speedrunners do this all the time with romhacks and randomizer races and they still finish the games fast. You're literally just making shit up. You can't get a good time in a competitive game without being very familiar with advanced movement mechanics.
>>3239218

I don't look down on people for being bad at games, I look down on people for claiming they're good at games when they're bad at them. Most of the world are bad at games, and people who are good at games can bad at other things. Nobody is good at everything, and that's completely fine.

>The controls are absolutely rock solid.
The controls have you move in relationship to the camera rather than being fixed. The camera can change at it's own will which in turn changes the controls at it's own will. This is terrible. The camera also fails to show you crucial threats unless you are constantly fiddling with it or have the levels memorized. Mario also some of the most unitinative moment ever.

>difficulty ramps up nicely.
What difficulty? It's 8 hits to die with healing items everywhere and essentially unlimited lives.

>The level design is superb
What are you talking about? There's constant drops in pacing, hardly any enemies (and the ones that do exist are terrible) and the aestetics bearly manage to have a coherent idea of what they are supposed to be depicting. The levels are also 80% filler as they have you running over the exact same piss-easy areas 6 times to collect all the stars, with only minor change in level terrain. This is because they boot you out of levels every time you get a star. Every other collectathon has you stay in the levels after collecting an item so it's not as tedious.

Look at Maximo: Ghosts to Glory if you want to see top notch level design. Every enemy has weight to it, every jump is potential death, health is actually limited, camera never has issues, and the environments are gorgeous.


>The game has one of the biggest and most dedicated speedrunning communities.

So? This is completly irrelevent to the game design, escpially considering that the goal of any speedrunner is to destroy the level design and glitch his way to credits screen as fast as possible. This is to say nothing of how much it wrecks immersion.
