Do you really? My aphantasia prevents me from seeing anything except what's on the screen. And as a kid, it took me too long to get over being a horrible graphics snob. ("Astyanax is a better game than Zelda II, because look at it!")
I really missed out, and it's why I'm now such a fan of the 5th generation now. And the ZX Spectrum. And other games that are difficult to enjoy at a moment's glance.

I've been thinking about that...what if we did see some of those assets? Low poly Mario in the distance shots, for example, could easily be done on a Super FX 2. Especially if they kept improving the technology as prices dropped, or if the rumors were true about Nintendo planning for carts with multiple chips.

Nintendo dodged a bullet. That game would have destroyed any goodwill Starfox and DKC had bought them.

Sure. But the idea is to flood the market with crap that takes zero effort or cost to make - all the characters are SNK sprites they drew over. They were basically a glorified pirate company.

Oh my God. LOL. I'm in tears. This is beautiful. I think I'm in love.
Thank you for this. I needed that laugh.
