Yeah. It kinda sucks the fun out of it for me. I'm at 800,000. I've used the 3-4 trick, and also played the Gold Rush DLC pack tons of times to get to this many.

I can't help but think perhaps the coin goal should have been lower, or more connected to the main game. Because it would take forever to get 1 million only through the story mode, and that's when the game was most fresh.

I believe in make believe~

Yeah, the million coin goal should have been tied into story mode more. Heck, they probably should have had even more levels and worlds in story mode, or more coins in the worlds just to make it less tedious to reach the million point. Because as of now, you're going to get what, about a hundred thousand coins on a playthrough of the main adventure? That should have been more like eight hundred thousand coins by Dry Bowser, so that you only had to play a bit of coin rush to reach the target.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the 3-4 trick?

On world 3-4 go to the end of the level without using the gold flower instead use the raccoon tail, hit the block that goes up to a lone Koopa, hit the Koopa with the tail down to the block and the vine, go to the vine turn gold and the Koopa will get up and hit you and then the block and it repeats until you get 30,000 coins. Do this over and over for more coins

Very cool. I can't wait to try this out. Thanks for the help. :)

How do you get gold flowers for the coin rush stages? I have a golden flower in my bubble but it doesn't show up when I play coin rush.

What do you mean? You always start with one Gold Flower per coin rush pack run, and you find others in the levels.

You have to beat the game to get that? I don't remember that.

I tries to get as little coins as I could in the Gold Rush pack and made it to level 3 with 199 coins but died because you need a fire flower to get past the thwomps

But...why did you do that?! All you get is a different trophy in the title screen. That definitely not worth hours and hours of endless grinding.

It's supposed to be a passive goal. That's why Nintendo is pushing DLC. They offer DLC to get you to increase your playing, and you passively work towards the goal.

You get a different title screen in Mario kart Double dash and 64 for 100%ing the game, no one complains about that, HM? But with this game, it's suddenly a problem. Why?

While I personally don't judge anyone who wants to max out their counter in this game, the reason something like reaching 100% in Double Dash is different is two things... on your way to the 100%, you unlock a lot of other content (racers and karts). And it simply doesn't take too long to do either. Meanwhile, in NSMB2, you have to spend a LOT of time grinding for coins. Doing the exaaact same thing again and again and again. Even if you got 30,000 coins every single time, you'd have to do that coins rush 330 times to go from zero to maxed out. That's a lot of repetition.

I maxed out the counter because basically, I was bored. And because I'm one of those completionist types who can't leave a game even partly unfinished (OCD?)

I downloaded both of the new DLC packs yesterday. Both of them are pretty good, although I think the Coin Challenge B pack is probably the better of the two. The second course in that pack was probably my favorite of yesterday's DLC levels.
