Any of you nerds have a Fortnite account they don't use anymore that I could merge mine with? I play it once a week with my cousin, admit it's pretty fun, we've been doing this since day 1.. The merging ends tomorrow, thought I'd try my luck here. No way I'm wasting sheckles on a galaxy shaded pickaxe..

 

*ducks*

I haven't used mine in over a year. You can have it, although I'm not sure how this merging procedure works.

got up to World 8 on Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 without cheating. 

world 5 was brutal. but rest has been Good Wholesome Fun. 

until world 8... and then the game just turns into straight up bullshit... 

i checked my Switch play session times and it said Mario 2 had 20 hours... so i decided to start using save states to at least save at the start of 8-4 and 🙂 hey, whaddaya know, i beat Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 !!!

 ...

turns out the game has a World 9 after World 8... and you only have 1 life, and if you die it pretty much says "You're a super player!" and then gives you a game over screen lol. 

also, if you beat the game 8 times and get 8 stars on the title card screen, it unlocks Worlds A B C and D. 

...

who the heck designed this game??? it's such an asshole of a game.

The thinking at the time was instead of just more of the same from Mario 1, give the hardcore players a challenge. I think the decision not to bring it out in the US was a wise one (and if they hadn't we wouldn't have gotten my favourite Mario game, Super Mario 2 USA aka the reskinned Doki Doki Panic)

Wario Land is still better than any Mario sidescroller IMO

It would be a lot easier if the controls weren't so goddamn bad...

On SMB2 (JPN)? They're the same as SMB 1... or are you talking about SMB 2 USA?

Oh my bad ... I was talking about japanese super mario bros 2, that's lost levels in america right?

Anyways mario 1 and lost levels would be a lot easier with better controls.

Right - the controls have never been an issue (for me) in any Mario game, and I've never heard complaints about the controls in SMB1 or SMB2 (JPN)...

I broke and downloaded Far Cry: New Dawn. Not enamored with it yet, but hope it gets better.

ya. i still rate japanese mario 2 pretty highly.. it’s like an official rom hack/ kaizo mario for SMB1. ... it may be hard but it’s not ghosts and goblins hard. 

SMB1 controls are wonky and take getting used to, but once you do get used to them it’s pretty hard to fault them. every time i play SMB1 after a while it’s always “is this emulator busted??? why does everything feel so fucked up???”. but then you get used to it and they’re good again.

i also think.. the World 9 in SMB2 (j) is based on the -minus world glitch from SMB1. which is kind of interesting. it’s like a weird tacked on official part of the game in SMB2.

Totally unrelated to our conversation, but are you purposely formatting your posts with light gray text and white background?

nope. i wrote the text out on iphone safari watmm, but there was some text at the end of the text box i couldn't delete (the little text flashing icon just refused to go infront of the text) . so my solution was to copy my reply, refresh the page, then paste the reply back into the reply box.

Gameplay is decent, story sux. That's probably about all I can say without revealing spoilers. The Far Cry formula since 3 starts to show signs of fatigue as you progress.

Yeah, the stories are usually garbage. I just like playing them for conquering outposts stealthily and general adventuring.

I'm fine with the format, but labeling the "level" of animals and enemies is kind of weird. It feels like it has more of an RPG system on the surface. Also, animal attacks seem more common than in FC5.

Haha, thanks. I have the MAME INP file and I'm trying to figure out the quickest and simplest way to create a video file to upload to youtube. 😛

I'd say call ol' Walter Day, but sadly he's retired now.
