Title: It's MAR10 today. So what Mario game are you playing or replaying?
Post by: JonLeung on March 10, 2007, 09:43:49 AM
I just downloaded Super Mario World (Super NES, from the Wii Virtual Console) this morning.  And finished it in one sitting by going through Star World.  Whee!



What are you playing?  And don't tell me you don't celebrate MAR10!

Cheater!  :P



Try for all 96 exits.  It gets really fun when you are trying get all of the exits in the Forest of Illusion.  It can be a little hard to remember which exits you have found.  (Some of the paths overlap.)

I think I'll petition the government to change this month to Metrutle or Vansletuk or something, just to annoy you.

Oh, missed it. But I watched a documentation about video games that day. And of course Mario was in it, so at least I saw Mario's appearance on that special day :)



Metrutle sounds very strange, I would be more than suprised when you get this renaming petition through.

I took me a while to figure out that March 10th -> MAR10 -> MARIO.

Well, this topic started last year...



The countdown to Brawl and MAR10 will be the same for me, probably.  Super Smash Bros. Brawl is supposed to come out on Mar. 9, but the guy at EB Games said it'll be a day later in Canada (doesn't surprise me, it's happened before) so the Mario game I'll be playing on MAR10 will very likely be that!

I finished it. The last level was really long and got boring. The final boss is pretty hard too. But, whatever, I have Sonic now.

I won't have time to seriously play games today, but if all else fails, maybe I'll put up some Super Mario RPG maps from Peardian.



(I played over an hour of Metroid: Zero Mission yesterday while waiting at the Mazda dealership since my vehicle was getting an oil change and tune-up; maybe I should've played some Mario then to make up for today.)

I really should play some Super Paper Mario for the occasion. I stopped playing in the middle of Chapter 3, then just never got back to it.



(I've got as many games that I've stopped playing half-way through than games I've stopped mapping half-way through. In other words, a *lot*)

I am playing "Mario & Luigi Partners in Time". This particular copy and version is the most compatible I could get to play with DeSmuME. Except I cannot save and the combat graphics are wrong, but now that I have the best version I could find, I've managed to make a couple of high quality maps, I hope to submit any time.

You should!  I really liked Super Paper Mario.  Finished it on a rental, and got everything, even all the rare cards and etc.  There was enough time on the rental for my brother to play his own file from start to finish, though he didn't get everything.



Some people think there's too much story to read in Super Paper Mario.  I think it's nice to have some more story in the Mario games that I wouldn't complain about that!



Partners In Time is good too.  I'm looking forward to Mario & Luigi 3, where you can play as Bowser!  Though apparently Mario & Luigi spend most of the game in Bowser's body, from the looks of it.

I don't like the Mario RPG series, but I got Super Paper Mario anyway. Same as with Terra, I played a few chapters and then stopped. I hated having to go back to town and find all the levels; I just wanted to play.

I have the Paper Mario for Gamecube, but only played it enough to make sure the disc worked.  It was something I bought used.  Should get around to playing it one of these days.



Does anyone else think it looks like Mario is doing a Nazi salute when he raises his arm?

Not really, but his tiny dot-like eyes and his tendency to point at himself and raise his hand like a school kid do make him look a bit dumb :)



Super Paper Mario is the only Paper Mario game I was ever interested in for precisely the reason most people feel it's the weakest of the series: it's more of an action/adventure instead of an RPG, a genre I really dislike the mechanics of.

*is ashamed at Revned and TerraEsperZ*



Super Mario RPG is great.  It introduced the concept of doing more damage or defending yourself with well-timed button presses, and for that reason alone is not as sedentary as other select-your-move RPGs.  Not only that, it's clearly the best Nintendo/Square collaboration.  Ever.  Mario Hoops 3-on-3 (which features Final Fantasy characters) isn't on the same level.  Having Peach and Bowser as playable characters and opening up the universe of Mario beyond the Mushroom Kingdom makes it awesome.



The Mario & Luigi games and the Paper Mario games have their unique quirks for mixing the RPG genre with the universe of Mario.  While Super Paper Mario has its moments, you're missing out by not playing the other ones.  :P



Though, not to be a hypocrite, I suppose there are some genres I can't handle, that even a mix of Mario can't improve.  Super Mario Sluggers was dreadful...



Maybe we'd better end the RPG-hating talk before I find out that one of you guys didn't play Chrono Trigger.  Then I'll really flip out!  0_0

I like very few turn-based RPGs. Chrono Trigger, FF1, old school Pokemon, and, uh... that's about it. They usually move way too slow for me, especially the long, usually boring story sequences.

Post by: TerraEsperZ on March 10, 2009, 08:24:24 PM
The only JRPG I have played since the days of my old NES was Final Fantasy VI (over a decade ago already), and I held on because I loved the story, the characters and the designs. But even I'm not sure I'd tolerate doing it again without cheating in some way. I also don't have fond memories of battling slimes in Dragon Warrior just so I could become strong enough to cross that damn bridge. You want to make me hate a game? Force me to do some level-grinding, and you'll succeed admirably. It's just so tedious, unless it happens naturally while making your way through the game like all three GBA Castlevanias.



As for Chrono Trigger (and possibly the recently translated Mother 3 thanks to all the good reviews from the 61 Frames Per Second blog), I too hope to play one day, but only because of the awesome overall quality of those games and not for the actual battle systems.



I much prefer RPG games that are closer to the mechanics of the PnP ones like Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, Fallout 1 and 2 and Planescape: Torment (all games I hope to play from start to finish one day). Although there's a lot of fighting to do in those, you don't get any XP from it unless said death allows you to complete a quest. Rather, you get points from solving problems and quests, and you get more when you use a creative solution, and you don't climb in levels but improve individual stats using those hard-earned XP.

Darn, I only had time to boot up an already-existing save file on Super Mario World on the Wii Virtual Console (which apparently, according to the first post, I downloaded three years ago today) and just defeat Bowser using the Back Door.  Lame.  Ah, well, there's a MAR10 every year.

I did try a tiny bit of New Super Mario Bros. Wii on my own today, and despite other players getting in the way in multiplayer, you're less likely to die all at once.  Me and my brother did everything in the game already though, except we never unlocked any of the hint movies.  I finished Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story semi-recently (even with the pointless grinding up to Level 40 which wasn't worth it), so I guess we just have to look forward to Super Mario Galaxy 2.

As a total coincidence (seriously), I actually took out Super Paper Mario again today (after only making it to Chapter 4 since around the same date last year!). I decided to star from the beginning since it's been too long for me to feel "into" the story.

Oh, and allow me to troll a little bit: I still feel that the average JRPG mechanics suck  ;)

I just finished playing "Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time". My favourite of all characters is the Koopa reporter Kylie, especially when she shows up, when you least expect it (especially when she impersonated a shroom in the mother ship). The comical moments are the hungry Yooba (Giant Dinosaur Robot) which fancies a snack of a Yoshi and the part where Prince Bowser calls Baby Mario & Luigi "Stinky Babies" for eating all the Yoshi cookies. It's a pity you can't explore any more than Princess Peach's castle in the Present. Also I miss the Lightning power, Fire power and other abilities the Mario Bros. had in Superstar Saga. When there's only one type of bean to find, it's not nearly as fun to scavenge for them as it is with four bean types. Anyway I'll be proceeding to Bowser's Inside Story when I get a chance.

It's MAR10 again!

I'll probably look at the history book and listen to the soundtrack CD that came with Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition which I bought last November but haven't really done anything with.  I saw my brother struggle through Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels...no thanks, that's just ridiculously difficult.  And I've played the other games on there to death already, obviously.  So if I do play anything, it'll probably be some Mario Sports Mix as that's the newest game so I haven't unlocked much stuff in it yet.

Post by: Will on March 10, 2011, 10:07:54 AM
I have more recently had a full experience with "Mario & Luigi - Bowser's Inside Story". I should have known that the spore bloating problem was a mere side terror in the storyline and not the main threat to affect the Mushroom Kingdom. This RPG uses the stylus and microphone often, especially when Bowser's a giant. Although this is not the first game where Bowser is a playable character, this the first time I've ever seen his full capabilities and traits and I was comfortable playing with him in the gameplay, even if he didn't jump like the Mario Bros. It's nice to see Bowser in a good mood and get on good terms with the block characters. I never thought I'd see Fawful back in business after his failure two prequels ago. My favourite character of them all is Starlow the star sprite. The name he gave himself 'Chippy' is very cute on him. Such gratitude has the princess got for Bowser in the end, she sends him a cake. If a new RPG sequel ever appears, I would really like it if the kooplings would appear and become playable characters for the first time.

Oops!  The day's almost over, and I haven't played any games at all!

I suppose later today would be a good time to get back to Mario Kart 7, which I probably haven't touched in a month...

Why does Mario Party 9 come out tomorrow and not today?

Mario Party 9 is more fun than I thought it would be.  I guess taking a few years off has made it feel fresh, not to mention the faster pacing by having everyone in a vehicle to reach a definite end.

I REALLY should get back to Mario Kart 7.  It's pretty much the only 3DS game I can easily play with my B button kind of messed up (as if I ever brake)...I'm getting someone to fix it soon.


Title: Re: It's MAR10 today. So what Mario game are you playing or replaying?
Post by: JonLeung on March 10, 2013, 08:10:17 AM
Funny how the last post was about getting my 3DS fixed.  Last year I sent it in to Nintendo just shy of the one-year warranty being over, to get the B button fixed, and they sent me a new 3DS, and I got to enjoy the then-new Kid Icarus: Uprising on it.  I actually just sent it in again (since the replacement also came with a one-year warranty, which this is now just shy of) because of lack of audio on the left side when using earphones.

So yes, I am waiting for my 3DS again, though technically this is the next one.  A new 3DS each year...at least it's free.

It is MAR10 day again, but once again I'm busy today...if only I had my 3DS I'd play a bit of Mario Kart 7 - remember that?  I don't think I ever logged on to the VGMaps community at the same time as anyone else, though :( - so maybe I'll find time to go do some challenges in New Super Mario Bros. U, I've been meaning to get back to doing those.

I love the 3DS, RPGs, and Mario games, so it's a wonder to me why I haven't played Paper Mario: Sticker Star or Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.  Not to mention that I usually pick up games the first day or week...  Since I'm passing right by a Best Buy today anyway, maybe I should remedy this, on yet another MAR10 Day.

Post by: JonLeung on March 10, 2014, 04:22:28 PM
Best Buy didn't have either when I stopped by today after work.  In fact their 3DS shelves are really barren, which is odd.  Either this means Best Buy doesn't care for the 3DS anymore (they didn't even seem to have Bravely Default or the new Professor Layton game!), or (hopefully) more likely, now that the 3DS is doing so well, that they sold a bunch of games and since I think their shipments come in on Tuesdays they should hopefully replenish tomorrow.

So, since Chapters was nearby, I used a gift card from Christmas to buy two versions of Jenga...one of them is the Space Invaders Collectors' Edition Jenga, and the other is the Donkey Kong Collectors' Edition Jenga.  They can be played as "normal" Jenga, but they also have alternate rules to fit with their theme - I'm guessing the Donkey Kong one might somehow resemble the original Donkey Kong game.  I guess this is the Mario game I'm playing today...

(Funny how looking a little above that I see that a year ago I lament that Bravely Default wasn't available at Best Buy, and now, I'm currently playing it for the best ending (Chapter 7, lots of remixed boss battles)...  At what point did I start slipping?  It usually doesn't take me more than a year to finish a game, usually I finished games within the first week, or month of availability!  Though to be fair I picked up Bravely Default later and my brother was playing it first and I didn't seriously start it for quite a while because other games came up.  :P  It's still weird, though maybe I took too much pride in finishing games so soon in the first place.)

It's MAR10 again!  I don't know if I'll have time to play a Mario game when I get home, since I have a deacon's meeting tonight (yes, I very recently became a deacon at my church, taking time away from things like games).  Since I got a Virtual Boy last year, and have eight out of its library of fourteen games, maybe I'll play something obscure like Mario Clash.  I was never really good at it but then again I haven't played it much, might as well use today as an excuse to try again.

So I've had Super Mario Maker (Wii U) since the first week it came out.  (Not the first day, because I pre-ordered from Best Buy and had it delivered, but it didn't arrive on the first day, grrr, but whatever.)  The embarrassing thing is that I have not yet shared a single course!  Sure, I've played the game to get the Mystery Mushrooms and whatnot (though Expert is kicking my butt, I don't know about Super Expert), but I really should finish the stage I'm making and share it at some point.  Since it's #MAR10 again, if I have time to play games tonight, I'll try to finish and share my first stage!

You guys should also share any Super Mario Maker stage codes if you've made anything neat.

I almost forgot this year, but a tweet from Cartoon Network reminded me. Now that I've remembered, I'll... do something? I would be playing Super Mario Maker, too, but my back injury prevents me from sitting in front of the TV for more than a few minutes.

I don't I'll be playing anything Mario-related. If anything, I MIGHT get back to work on EO2U, who knows. Just dealing with some nasty stuff in real life at the moment in addition to the usual stuff that'd keep me from working on it.

This topic is now 10 years old!

I was busy making a couple of Nintendo Switch videos for YouTube (see here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EfALjsYnIM) and here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgi9crZ5a_4)), so I haven't even played as much of that as I would've liked.  But, there was no Mario game on launch day (not that it matters much with the highly-acclaimed The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild to fill my time), but that means we're not playing Super Mario Odyssey today.

Guess I can try to get some more black Coins in Super Mario Run; there's always that...

Oh, and I never did finish and share that stage I was working on in Super Mario Maker...  :(


Title: Re: It's MAR10 today. So what Mario game are you playing or replaying?
Post by: TerraEsperZ on March 10, 2017, 08:41:19 AM
You know, I had no interest in buying a Switch just like I skipped on the Wii U. But damn if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn't trying hard to change my mind. It very well might be what sells the system to me, just like Super Mario Galaxy sold me on the Wii. I'm just not completely sold on the hardware yet, with the sometimes unresponsive left joy-con, the rather short battery time, the uneven performances between the docked and portable configuration... I'm really hoping they release a revision somewhere down the line that will make it a "must" rather than a "maybe".

Going back to MAR10, I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've played a Mario game! I still haven't finished Super Mario 3D Land or New Super Mario Bros 1 and 2 but then again, I've given up hope of ever fully completing games like that. I'm just not good enough and don't have the time or patience to hang on long enough to become good enough. Also, holy crap! It's been almost three years since I "switched" to an HD TV and thus, three years since my Wii has been in the closet. I hope it's still working because some Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 goodness would be really fun right now.

The Wii U didn't get much third-party support when it was quickly obvious that people weren't catching on.  I could go on about it, but in keeping on the subject of Mario, Super Mario Bros. U isn't really much to write home about, and Super Luigi U is a remix but perhaps notable for being really hard if you play as Luigi (though ridiculously easy if you cheap out by playing as the invincible Nabbit).  I did enjoy Super Mario 3D World, and I will never forget the 6.5 hours (and something like 600 lives) that me and my brother spent one Saturday attempting, and finally completing, the insanely difficult "Champion's Road", the true final area.  Peach's floating and Rosalina's ability to attack are so crucial there...  But if you say you haven't even finished the incredibly easy Super Mario 3D Land, then maybe you wouldn't appreciate the challenge of that stage in 3D World...  However, it really is the "meatiest" Mario experience on the Wii U, though unless you have friends to appreciate the four-player simultaneous play in a 3D world (just a step up from the four-player simultaneous play in a 2D world in the "New" console series on Wii and Wii U), it may not feel like much of an evolution if you always expect bigger and better Mario experiences.

And as I mentioned, Super Mario Maker is great, but I never got around to making a stage, and the best stages by users often seem to be "automatic" ones, like Rube Goldberg machines, though indeed some are quite creative.

I regret to say that I never made time for Paper Mario: Color Splash, so I can't comment much on that, though I hear it's like Paper Mario: Sticker Star on the 3DS, which I also missed, in that neither are as RPGish as the previous games.

And the Mario sports games are meh, the newest Mario Tennis, whatever it was called, no one cared about, including myself, which is a shame as I generally at least enjoy them a bit.  Of course, there's Mario Kart 8 which is fun, but if you missed out on the Wii U but are considering a Switch, might as well get the upgraded Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, then, which includes the DLC and adds new modes, including a "real" Battle Mode (there was a Battle Mode in 8, but used the same tracks instead of arenas specific to that mode).

Looking forward to Super Mario Odyssey for sure, which even Nintendo officially acknowledges is more in the vein of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine (with its open hub worlds of Peach's Castle and Isle Delfino Resort respectively) than the somewhat fragmented Galaxy or "New" games.

Super Mario Galaxy (as well as its sequel, Super Mario Galaxy 2 - which is pretty much just more of the first game). It had lots of the great 3D platforming from Super Mario 64 and featured a lot of traditional Mario fare, but in addition, it added in a cool gravity effects, had a simple yet effective control scheme, creative level designs, and a rich orchestral soundtrack.
