Episode 279: Coarse Discourse on the Mario Golf Course
« on: July 02, 2021, 01:06:43 PM »

If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Mario Golf Super Rush is objectively perfect in every way.

Neal is out this week but he's assembled a elite team of people who don't like Mario Golf Super Rush very much. But before we get to that, Justin Berube and Matt Zawodniak chat about the new Smash DLC character and their weirdly good experience with Microsoft's Cloud. In the main event Justin and Matt break down why they've been disappointed with Mario's most recent trip to the golf course and John tries to rationalize why he likes it so much.

Who’s the very critical member of this podcast? Is it Justin? Basically this guy knows his Mario Golf. All his critiques are spot on and 100% accurate. The more I go back and play Toadstool Tour, the more I see how sad this new MG is compared to a game made nearly 20 years prior.

The new hitting mechanic lacks technical depth, the power shots are pointless, the “courses” are one large map instead of individually curated holes as in previous entries, and so much more. A “golf adventure” is unnecessary and in no way compensates for the myriad fun modes which used to play a significant role in Mario Golf. Also, this game is completely devoid of charming celebration animations and voice clips. Just a cheap rushed sad attempt to add a new entry into an established and beloved franchise. Total disappointment.
