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.

I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Wii games missing from the Wii U VC.

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.

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).

Currently playing: Destiny (just the weeklies), Atelier: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky -Escha and Logy (or so I tell myself), and Dark Souls 2 (PS4).
Playing soon: Ratchet and Clank HD Collection

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
