    I've been here for years (over 11, in fact), but don't post an awful lot. My sole interest is Mario, and I'll usually become more active, in the Marioverse, when new games are out and being reviewed, and with Super Mario Maker 2 and 3DWorld/Bowser's Fury being abuzz now (and me recently getting...

    Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

    There's no collected star/stamp list anywhere? (Which shows every level, and what you've collected. I know I've seen that on previous games). It seems you can only see what you've collected from going on to the world map, and moving to every level one at a time.

    Cool they're finally porting 3DW! I now hope to eventually get a Switch just for that one!

    Super Mario 3D All-Stars

    I've loved the idea of 3D Mario ever since the late 80's, when they converted arcade franchises like PacMan to 3D (PAcmania), and added 3D style graphics to the Space Invaders, Asteroids and Galaga series (Majestic 12, Blasteroids, Galaga88). It would be several years before a 3D Mario...

    Here now is where the “Fuji Mario” modder has added later characters to the SMB2 style, like SMM2.

    Super Mario Maker 2

    For those who don't like the sad looking "angry" sun of the SMBU style, apparently, a glitch is that if you overlay a bunch of them (he uses 20), then you'll get a more realistic looking "sun", though it wont have a face; it looks more like an intense ray coming at you...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    I've long wondered if some of the sound effects are from Ed, Edd & Eddy. Particularly the first two listed here: https://www.mariowiki.com/List_of_sound_effects_in_Super_Mario_Maker_2 the firstone sounds like Eddy saying "Help Me!" which I remember from multiple occasions on the show, and the...

    Anything from that Mario 128 project we for a long time thought was going to become a game?

    Super Mario Maker 2

    This is exactly what they should have done: https://youtu.be/7xAPTKPPwUM If a mod could do it, then why not Nintendo? Love what they did with the flagpole and exit mask, and that all Boos are now Phantos, and they used the original "Doki Doki Panic" version with the less menacing face, for when...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Here's a report on how the latest update is doing in online play. Watching the "Endless" Challenges and "Multiplayer" on YT, it seems there is a heavy emphasis on the newest 3 game styles (W, U and 3DL), and when SMB1 is used, they still overwhelmingly favor the Link mushroom. SMB2 is actually...

    What was the first Mario game you ever played?

    Arcade version ("VS Super Mario Bros."; took another year before we got an NES). (This, if you're not counting the original Donkey Kong).

    What is your favorite episode of the DIC cartoons?

    If you had the choice to make the next Mario game, what would it be?

    "Super MArio Bros. 'BAck to Basics' 3D" A 3D game based on the original, like SMG2's "Supermassive Galaxy", but in regular size. (It would have original sound effects, more block-based ground features, and focus on original enemies). Water levels could look something like the ones in the Galaxy...

    Why do you like Mario?

    From the very beginning (watching others on the arcade "VS" version), the mystery element (what's in that pipe; that block, etc. trying to find the hidden vine or underowlrd, or occasionalyy even a waterifiled section). Iliked it for the same reason I liked Scooby Doo! Lively score and sound...

    Worst 3D Mario Levels

    Was this the thread originally titled something like "What in a 3D Mario level were you troubled by?" or something like that? (Which I clearly remember from within the last couple of weeks, but can't find now). One YT'er is running gameplay videos of the entire SMG series (I skipped over that...

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    Nintendo World has the latest games set up on multiple large screens (and 3DS's as well), so you can go there and play them for awhile. (That's how I got to try out all the games on systems I never got, like NSMBU, 3DW, Odyssey, etc.) Since most people who try to recreate SMB2 use the regular...

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    If it weren't for the pandemic, I wanted to go there to see if I could make my own SMM2-SMB1/2 scene off of the Forest theme (which has the green semisolids that look like SMB2).

    post any random Mario thought on your mind

    Here's an apparent SMM hack that's the SMB1 style, but with a lot more elements of later games added: background tunes from SMW and later converted to 8 bit, storing of extra powerups, the Toad house, the SMB2 enemies Shyguy and Ninji, and you can pick up them and Koopa shells without having to...

    Mario pictures

    Here, I decided to gather together all the "Fuji Mario" characters, and major graphics elements. Fuji Mario is where someone redid the entire original SMB into the SMB2 style. So we see what all the original enemies, from goombas to Bowser, would have supposedly looked like if they appeared in...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Here someone tries to do something like this: https://youtu.be/W3saTF_M0uA What I don't understand is why no one doing this is using the green striped semisolid platforms: They're nearly identical to the original SMB2 platforms, and were already added in the last update or before (perhaps in...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Another thing I realized; SMB2 little Mario is omitted. IT would have been cool to include that, as in the original game, because it would allow you to be hit twice before falling back into SMB1 mode. (Also noticed that the P-switch uses the original SMB theme variation from “subspace” instead...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    It was likely 'just in case'; a ”provision” to add more styles, that may or may not ever be realized. I think we all eagerly jumped on the word “styleS” and made too much of it and assumed it meant there MUST be more than one addition in the future. But what MetaWeege said might be true as...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Wow (recently wondering when the next update would ever be); since they're adding the key SMB2 features of picking up enemies, then if they add SMB2 themes, enemies and block graphics, you would be able to make an SMB2 style level off of the SMB1 engine! (I see they already had that green...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Nice they added the Pokeys (which was a prominent character, that debuted with SMB2), but I wonder why they added the new Ninji game (considered a new "mode"), but didn't take the opportunity to add SMB2. Is it really that hard to convert? (Harder than 3DW was?) I notice that when the new Link...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    The addition of SML is a mod? Videos I'm seeing such as this one https://youtu.be/mMawD2ZOO2s are saying it's apart of the game. (comments too). I thought this was cool, as a lot of people seemed to want the next "additional style" to be SML, but here, it's easily added as a powerup. I'd rather...

    OK, actual gameplay footage is starting to arrive, as there was some demo event people want to today: https://youtu.be/cnRlWSBWx6A https://youtu.be/vHhQCvwi8-0 and several more. Apparently the NSMBU sun keeps that same static look even when moving. ::) Other highlights are the surprise moves...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    They've actually added this, apparently, to even the SMB style. Somewhere in the video, you can see a clip of him in sleep mode (looks similar to the SMB3 version), but then turns into the angry gritting-teeth sprite when dropping. That must be what they're doing with the sun in NSMBU mode...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    It does seem like there is a bit of overanalyzing (particularly around just there being an extra space), though as others pointed out, the plural "modes" does indicate that the provision is being made for other styles. Here's the SMB2 mod I saw from before (with the goomba and Koopa Troopa...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Just curious; why do you think SML2? Of all the sites I've seen address this, I did see one (a video, I think) speculate “Bros 2 or Land 2”. I've been hoping for Bros 2, because the Land series is so different in being black & White, yet otherwise is similar to styles already included. These...

    Super Mario Maker 2

    So they're going to have 2D versions of 3DWorld. I wonder why they wouldn't take the opportunity to add SMB2. (Someone else had done a nice rendition of it, and it was nice to see how goombas and koopas translated into it. Didn't even realize they didn't have slopes in the first game. I though I...

    2001: A Mario Odyssey

    Perhaps, to answer my earlier question, this is what the pink lava was: https://www.facebook.com/ABC7NY/videos/395526357647610/ This is created by salts, and in the game, there are mounds of salt on the islands in the luncheon levels. Perhaps it's enough salt to be lethal (in addition to the...

    Yeah, but what kind of soup is that color? I didn't even think of that! Funny! (though that's not what they would seriously have it be).

    2001: A Mario Odyssey

    This might seem like a silly question, but is there any notion of what food the pink sauce lava of the Luncheon Kingdom is supposed to be? Every time I see it, it looks so delicious, like some kind of melted candy sauce, or frosting or even strawberry cake batter or something. Yet, there are...

    2001: A Mario Odyssey

    Have started watching PackAttack's playthorugh series on Youtube. Pretty cool graphics (of course), and the first (at least that I've noticed), to show unbounded underwater scenes. (The 3D games I'm familiar with: Galaxy 2, 3DL and [from watching) 3DW always seemed to encase you in a stone...

    SMB3 minor obstacle question

    Watching the SMB3 cartoon episode "Do the Koopa", around 4:00 (the version on Youtube wihth the opening, there's also one without the opening where it would be earlier), I notice pencil-like obstacles in the cave where the laser-shooting Bowser statues are. These are the same things called...

    Your ideas of what should be implemented in a Mario game/Your Mario game ideas.

    I also forgot, I hope they eventually do a "Super Mario 3D Maker". I guess the level builder templates would be 64, Sunshine, Galaxy and 3DL/W, although those aren't as different from each other as SMB, SMB3, SMW and SMU. (It was just a matter of the graphics getting better). So perhaps, a...

    Your ideas of what should be implemented in a Mario game/Your Mario game ideas.

    How about "Super Pixel Mario Bros" like this: or perhaps this: I've always wanted a 3D version of the original (Supermassive Galaxy on SMG2 comes closest), and perhaps the "pixel" premise (sparked off by the movie "Pixels") would be a great occasion for it. Perhaps even Lego Mario, since...

    Interesting article about Donkey Kong's development

    Wow, sort of reminds me of the previous top arcade game, PacMan, where Ms Pacman (and PacMan Plus and Jr Pacman) were unauthorized sequels by some other programmer. Didn't know any of that until much later.

    What games would you consider to be the pinnacles of the Mario series?

    I would say 3DWorld. Ever since SMB2, I began hoping the series would return to original form, but with 3D graphics added (like other games, such as Pacmania), which I had thought would be the ultimate game. They finally did with 64, and the graphics improved, and then 3DL restored the basic...

    Super Mario 3D World

    What he doesn't tell you is that it's not a total unearned "bragging rights", because there's always stuff you can't do (earn, unlock, etc) if you've used the leaf. (Unless it's different in this game). I think it's good for someone like me, who's limited in time, patience (and most...
