    Yeah, our TV needs a power supply to run and our TV wouldn't turn on when we used it so my dad sent it off to get repaired but we don't have the power cables with us so I can't use it (and consequently, I can't use my GC) until we manage to get them back.

    So I got 3D Land and I have to say that it lived up to more than my expectations were given it was almost unanimously agreed to be the worst 3D Super Mario.

    I definitely like it less than 3D World as its graphics are far inferior, you can only play as Mario
    And I think eventually Luigi?
    And its levels feel less interesting, but overall I like it a lot. 3D Land is the 3DS game for me rn.

    A lot of its bad reputation I think comes from how the previous 3D Mario was Galaxy 2, and from the beginning you could tell the engine was the same so a lot of people, including myself, was expecting an adventure on the scale of Galaxy when getting it. It's a decent game on its own.

    Honestly, I did like 3D Land. It doesn't have a negative reputation; it's simply regarded as the least good. It's my least favorite because the levels felt bland and the game was pretty short, not to mention I played 3D World first which is better in every way.

    But even with that, 3D Land is an easy 8/10 for me. It's just that every other 3D Mario is higher than that.
    Well, the time has finally come to put the turkey away and change my username again!
    Well I tried SMB1 (Wii U VC port of NES version) and I have to say it's a lot more challenging than I expected.
    I'm trying to use Warp Pipe to get to 3-1 and use the infinite lives trick to win more easily but even that is proving quite the challenge.
    Perhaps I'll just use save states to avoid having to restart every three deaths and then beat it legit some other time because I also want to try the rest of the pre-N64 Mario platformers.
    So, I liked 3D World and I wanted to get 3D Land on Nintendo eShop. I log on to Nintendo eShop and get to 3D Land. But instead of "Proceed to Purchase" it says "Redownload." What shall I do?

    I know there was a hack that can make a 3DS get any game from the eShop for free but I swear I've never done that and every other game on the eShop I can find doesn't do this. I did buy my 3DS second hand but it seemed to be reset to factory conditions.

    Just re-download it, the previous owner clearly bought it already

    If you really want to pay for something, just redownload this already-paid game and then buy a different one.

    Well the PS4 conttoller came, and I'm pretty satisfied. I managed to hook it up to DS4 and I could move in Minecraft by tilting! I wanted to configure it to be able to fly the elytra with motion but that didn't turn out too well as DS4 ended up just having my cursor jump everywhere, so I had to close it. Anyway, playing Minecraft with it was awesome, and I look forward to everything I'm going to play with it.
    This has been on my mind for quite a while so I decided to write this document:
    Enjoy!

    You should touch upon people in other countries such as in Brazil where they can't afford electronics, or in Russia where there's barely any means of legally buying the goods.

    Personally, I don't have any qualms for downloading a ROM. People think it's stealing, but it's not stealing, piracy is still illegal yeah, and it has its own set of legal ramifications, but it's different than say burglarizing a store. The main reason I use ROMs however is for wiki purposes (which I don't even do all that much anymore to be frank) and modding games at ease. I wouldn't beat around the bush and say that what I'm doing is legal however, even if I twist it around and say that I'm archiving or that it's not available or whatever. It's not. But I do completely understand why some people in some countries pirate. One of the biggest places where people pirate is Russia and Latin American countries, as for a great deal of time, there simply was no market for them and price of ROMs were ridiculous (I think people in some Latin American countries pay well over 100 for a game).

    Also, piracy in general, not just ROMs, can apply here. I pirate my music all the time. I refuse to purchase any music from any service that imposes DRM. If they won't let me actually own and keep my music files, I am not interested in purchasing products. What also doesn't help is that the music industry is slimy and you don't actually benefit the musicians when you buy their album; musicians make most of their money through tours and merchandise. To put things into perspective, out of all music industry profits, only 10% of the share are earned by artists, and most of those earnings aren't from album sales.

    I never pirate indie games by the way. I think that's crossing the line, and indie games typically run very cheap anyway. If I had no plans of buying them, I wouldn't play those.

    @Jolly DönerMax yeah I should but I'm mainly considering people in the developed, Occidental world. To be honest I was never at all knowledgeable about what it's like to live in other parts of the world. The writeup is kinda long already and it's mainly aimed at people in a similar position to mine - they can pay to buy the games but they're not so rich it's nothing.
    Thank goodness, the site finally worked!

    I am going to play both SMB3 and SMW but I'm asking a) should I get the original SMW or SMA2, which you said you recommend SMA2, and b) should I get the original SMB3 or SMA4?

    tbh I haven't played any of the gba remakes, but I hear they have improved graphics, added vocals, and better saving options.

    From my thread I get the impression that the remakes are generally recommended.
    I might get the original SMB1 though just because.. it's the original and I want that 1985 experience!
    (Well it's not actually the first Mario game but it's the oldest one which I'm interested in playing myself.)
    New Super Mario Bros. DS may have a nonexistent story, but I find it intriguing that Peach's Castle, when it was attacked, spawned many screaming Toadsworths running mindlessly in a circle.
