Handheld Gaming / Is the 2DS a viable replacement to the 3DS XL?
« on: January 18, 2019, 03:48:59 PM »
My 3DS has been broken for quite some time now, and ever since then I've been interested in getting a 2DS due to its cheap price (official refurbished for $60 USD) and the extra durability (the right hinge became the downfall of my old XL model, but that's missing here)  But I've heard it's a serious downgrade to other 3DS models, and is even outright uncomfortable.  I would kinda miss 3D since that was a pretty neat part of the system, and I've also heard that the screens are smaller and the sound quality is inferior.  I can live with smaller screens and lower sound quality (I have earbuds anyway).  And while 3D is definitely something I'd miss (especially when playing games like 3D Land), I suppose I can live without it if necessary.

So should I grab a standard 2DS for $60 but lose 3D and big screens, or pay extra for one of the "new" models with the possibility of my right hinge crumpling again?

Video Games / Will a 3DS system transfer overwrite pre-installed games?
« on: January 06, 2019, 05:25:04 PM »
So I have plans to buy that Mario Maker 2DS since my old NSMB2 XL broke.  But it says the game is pre-installed rather than coming with a download code.  If I were to do a system transfer to it, would Mario Maker be overwritten?  And if so, will I be able to redownload it?  Thanks!

Video Games / New York Times crossword forgets Wii U exists

They should have just made the clue "successor to Nintendo GameCube" rather than "predecessor to Nintendo Switch".

The Marioverse / Mario 64 or Mario 64 DS?
« on: December 04, 2018, 09:44:02 PM »
So I'm looking to get Mario 64, but I'm not sure which version to get.  The original has better controls, yet the remake is portable and has much more content (including :yoshi:).  I don't think the controls of the remake would bother me too much, but given its classic status I'd like to try the original version and see how 3D Mario evolved from there.  I'd like to try both eventually but don't know which to try first.  I would be playing the original on my Wii U, and the remake on my 3DS.  I've essentially decided not to play the remake on my Wii U, despite that being cheaper than a physical DS cart.  As such, I would have to pay a little more to play the remake.

Whatever version I get, I'll be happy just to have the game.  But if anyone on these forums happens to have a bone to pick with Mario 64, I included an option in the poll just for you. :wario:

And how long will Nintendo be supplying them?  I want to snag at least one of them, but won't be able to until early next year.  I hope they don't stop making them before I can get them...

Handheld Gaming / Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn
« on: October 13, 2018, 08:58:20 PM »

So, this was announced last month, but no one made a thread for it.  Surprised they decided to port a spin-off instead of Crystal Shards or Return to Dream Land, but this game looks pretty good!  I missed out on it back in 2010, so I'm looking forward to this port.

The Marioverse / Super Mario series sales data

I was bored, so I decided to compile a list of the sales of core Mario titles.  All sales figures are taken from Wikipedia's "List of best-selling Nintendo _______ video games" articles as of October 6, 2018, and are listed in millions.

HelpDesk / Any way to use Wiimmfi patches without homebrewing my Wii?
« on: October 01, 2018, 02:38:51 PM »
I've been interested in playing Wii games like Mario Kart Wii online, but Nintendo Wi-Fi's been long dead and I have to install Wiimmfi patches to play online.  They seem to require the Homebrew Channel.

The problem is, I don't want to install any unlicensed software on my Wii.  I put Riivolution on an SD card so I could play NewerSMBW, but that doesn't seem to be an option here.  Any way to use those Wiimmfi patches on my Wii...without installing anything?


Must be a super-rare version of the game.  Nintendo doesn't print it anymore, and Amazon sells it for $90.  Which is odd, considering that Nintendo still sells the standalone New Mario U for $60, just like the bundle.  I guess it was intended as a limited edition?

But this is the ultimate collector's item, people.

Typical counting game, but anyone can reset the count...whenever they feel like it!  It's a matter of fate as the count resets at random!  (UPDATE: Let's make this even more fun and let anyone change the count however they want!  Then TRUE chaos will break out! :bowser: :bowser: :bowser:)


Video Games / The last thing you redeemed from My Nintendo
« on: September 19, 2018, 04:11:42 PM »
Just post whatever you most recently got from My Nintendo.

For 200 Platinum Points, I got a 30% discount on Super Mario 64.  It expires November 2nd, so I'd better use it soon!

Video Games / Games you feel are underrated
« on: August 28, 2018, 02:36:10 PM »
Basically, games you like that get a lot of hate.  Please note that topics like these are highly subjective, and not everyone is going to agree.  I'll start:

Super Mario Sunshine (GCN)
It's pretty unfortunate that such a great game shows so many symptoms of a rushed game.  It is certainly a flawed game; however, many people will go so far as to say it's bad.  But in my opinion, that's where they're wrong.  While the lazy implementation of Blue Coins and the awkward camera controls can certainly impact the experience, it's still a great game behind those flaws.  I liked the implementation of FLUDD and the way it innovates gameplay.  Yoshi was also really fun to use, even if it meant avoiding water.  It may not be perfect, but behind a few minor flaws there's a lot of fun to be had, and that's really what matters most.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS)
As everyone probably knows already, I love this game.  It's fun, it's creative, but perhaps the most controversial attribute of this game is its sheer length.  I personally liked how long it was; it really increased the life of my game.  I also loved the Hard Mode, which basically made you start the game from the top and really builds up the challenge.  The Real World was great, but the most creative and fun parts of the game were all in the Dream World.  And I haven't even mentioned the soundtrack yet; it's probably the best in the Mario franchise (imo)!  This game remains my favorite RPG, and is one of my favorite games of all time.

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)
If you have a problem with the controls, blame the system, not the game!  This game is outstanding on a 3DS or Wii U.  While you can still only move in eight directions, 3D Land had this same kink and got away with it.  This game takes everything that made the original game great and builds upon it.  It adds 30 new stars and 3 new characters.  The only real downside to the DS version compared to the original N64 version is the fact that a lot of players just want to be Mario, which the game prevents them from doing until later.  But overall, this game is just as great as, if not better than, the N64 version.


We all know about Super Mario Odyssey...right?  I guess not, because I just found an article about another game of the same name.  Super Mario Odyssey (2004) is a ROM hack of Super Mario World (1990).  It came long before Super Mario Odyssey (2017) even began development!  Maybe Nintendo was inspired by the name...

This all reminds me of an old Nintendo Power fan letter that predicted Super Mario Galaxy (2007) long before it started development (here's an article about it).

Main series only; Yoshi's Island, Maker, and Run aren't included.  Listed below:

Super Mario Bros. (NES, 1985)
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (FDS, 1986)
Super Mario Bros. 2 [USA] (NES, 1988)
Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES, 1988)
Super Mario Land (Game Boy, 1989)
Super Mario World (SNES, 1990)
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy, 1991)
Super Mario 64 (N64, 1996)
Super Mario Sunshine (GCN, 2002)
New Super Mario Bros. (NDS, 2006)
Super Mario Galaxy (Wii, 2007)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii, 2009)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii, 2010)
Super Mario 3D Land (3DS, 2011)
New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS, 2012)
New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U, 2012)
Super Mario 3D World (Wii U, 2013)
Super Mario Odyssey (Switch, 2017)

HelpDesk / Can I still download WiiWare using download codes?
« on: August 18, 2018, 03:02:25 PM »
So...I know that the Wii Shop is closing down.  I can't add Wii Points anymore.  But I found a download code for Sonic 4 on Amazon.  I found a menu still on the Wii Shop for using download codes.  So I want to know: if I buy this download code, can I play Sonic 4 on my Wii?  Or are download codes defunct as well?

And if you're wondering, here's the code for $10 on Amazon.  The picture says it's Episode 2, but it's actually Episode 1.

The Marioverse / Rank the Super Mario games
« on: August 13, 2018, 02:16:44 AM »
I feel like I once made a similar thread to this one, but I couldn't find it, so it's probably old enough that a new one is justified.

Anyway, here you can rank the mainstream Mario games!  You can rank spin-off series as well, but please separate those into a different list.

Here's my list (only games I've played are included:
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (JP)
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)

The Marioverse / Mario & Luigi series discussion
« on: August 08, 2018, 01:59:55 AM »
We have one for Paper Mario, so I don't see any harm in making one for the M&L series as well.

Anyway, this is a thread where you can discuss anything about the Mario & Luigi RPG series.  This includes ideas for the next game, thoughts on previous games, speculation on the upcoming Bowser's Inside Story remake, and debating the fact that Dream Team is the best in the series really anything pertaining to the M&L series.

The Marioverse / How well does Partners in Time work on Wii U VC?
« on: June 14, 2018, 12:32:09 AM »
I've heard mixed thoughts about DS games on Wii U VC.  Some games, like Yoshi's Island DS, are outright unplayable on VC, while others like New Super Mario Bros. seem to work fine (sans multiplayer).  Where does Partners in Time fall here?  I've heard that some battles and Bros. Items don't work properly without the default display method with tiny screens.  But is this a minor problem, or is it game-breaking?  Is it worth the extra money to get this on DS?
