A Satellaview research blog.

Apologies for belated ROM release; please don’t Tsuu me.

I’m gonna start this with a little note that due to some other, non-Satellaview events going on, I probably won’t update much through the first half of August if at all. Ok, so I suppose I have went longer without an update, but still

I’m also gonna apologize to ChronoMoogle, since because of my mixture of procrastination and distraction he’s been on my case about the ROMs I’ve been obviously holding back. And I kinda still am, because this only has one of them so far, and not even the one I teased earlier. Tsk, bad, bad Kiddo!

Anyhow, time to put out a ROM release.

More St.GIGA audio pieces.

I hadn’t done a good search on “St.GIGA” on Youtube or NicoNicoDouga for a good… 3 months, now, was it?

Tsk, I’m behind!

And what’s worse for me is that there’s a good amount of back catalog to catch up on!

Let’s start with this Youtube upload by cocoademon21:

Satellaview World Character Highlight: The King of Subcon and The Commander.

So, here’s an idea for a set of articles… talking about some of the characters made specifically for Satellaview games. How will that work? Using what little I know, really. Hur.

Yes, it’s an excuse to pad for posts, but hopefully it’s a good, informative one.

This time I’m gonna write what little I can understand of The King of Subcon from “BS Super Mario USA” as well as his tag-along pairing, the Commander.

I’m also gonna cheat a bit, because I got some help on this.
also here.

Anyhow, BS Super Mario USA is, to the best of anyone’s knowledge (There might still be some really old promotional material for the Famicom version that might’ve been lost?), the only appearance of the King of Subcon and the Commander.

From what I can tell of what’s been translated for BS Super Mario USA, he seems mostly archtypical besides the usual Mario gameplay gimmicks. Sure, he and the Commander give powerups and whatnot, but for the most part it seems to be an excuse to have more seiyuu on a project. Or to be exposition characters.

However, there is one thing in particular that kinda makes me wonder…

… “The King’s Casino”. I mean, wow.
What kind of King just… publicly runs a casino? I can only assume that deep down, the ethical values of Subcon are really, really screwed up. Perhaps that may explain Birdo’s, um, nature…

… This could probably use some improvement, huh? Anyhow, I hope I can get more Soundlink archives for BS Super Mario USA sometime.
