That there's an alternate path in Hill Top Zone (my favorite zone in Sonic 2) and an alternate path to bypass the water in Chemical Plant Zone Act 2.

EDIT: And the shortcut to Labyrinth Zone Act 1

In Sonic 3, if you play as Sonic, it's possible to completely bypass the underground part of Ice Cap Act 2.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook

That using Warp Whistles in Super Mario Bros. 3 gives you tons of points, which are very important in a Mario game. The Wizard taught me that.

that body harvest is actually fun(I disliked it when I was a kid because I disliked bloody stuff, I still don't like but I also don't mind it now)

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

I know. I always take the upper path. In the PC version (S&K Collection).

Who are you?

The highest possible damage that can be legitimately dealt in the game [Pokemon] is a whopping 481,266,036! The only Pokemon who can pull this off is... Shuckle.

Is that a joke?
Or is it something just in the movie.
Because it doesn't in the game.

So Donkey Kong was okay to appear, but not Mario? Doesn't make much sense to me.

Prounced how? I'm guessing it's not something like Ninja Gay-den (there is no joke there).

Pokémon Black was what got me back into the franchise but it wasn't until years later after I 'learned' all of the Pokémon that I realised Rotom's name is Motor spelled backwards. I facepalmed for half the day.

Not including Mario as the referee was a big mistake, how could he not fit in with the art style? Mario's the king of versatility! He used to be at least. ;) Instead make way for a soulless generic everyday referee. because of this I'm docking 1 point. :P
