Watching that video, I think "strategies" should be in quotation marks...

EDIT: Beaten. Drat.

Aw man, if anyone had any doubts this has to put them away. I had fun watching whoever was playing have fun.

This is going to be awesome.

Everything is SPOILER now, don't wanna know!

/me averts his eyes.

I wanna watch it, but I don't wanna ruin the game for myself (happened to me with SSBB, and I'm not letting it happen again unless I don't care about the game, which I do care).

I just write what Nintendo tells me to write. They say it's strategies, it's strategies to me. They say it's dog sh*t, it's dog sh*t. They say fire Phil, we fire Phil. End of story. Of course if they say fire me, we'll have to sit down and talk about that one.

I'm a pro. Yet, I wasn't consulted on this......strange.

Looks good. Can't wait!

All I can say is Australia peeps are extremely lucky as they already have the game! 3 more days!

I particularly liked the strategy for a single-player getting the red coins.

Step One: Jump on top of ? block.
Step Two: Jump.
Step Three: Jump some more, even though you clearly cannot reach.
Step Four: Jump off and hit the block.
Step Six: Try to jump back on.
Step Seven: Admit you suck at Mario and do not deserve to work for Nintendo, much less make "strategy" videos for them. Get the propellorshroom and jump to the platform.
Step Eight: Get the Red Coins... strategically.

Seriously, did someone Nintendo hear the word "strategy" and think, "Hey, maybe we could use that!"

I didn't learn any strategies. But it was still interesting to watch.

small comment on my impressions:
I didn't expect to see as much Super Mario World in this as I have. Its little things but everytime they come up its a huge dose of nostalgia. Brilliant!

There are lots of 1UPs but you need them. Lives drain quickly. I am upto world 5 and I started with 25 lives and now that I am at the end castle I am upto 14. Its not stupidly hard, I don't think I have died more than three or four times on a level but its not easy. In the DS version I didn't die once until about world 7 or 8 so its significantly harder than that! but I don't think as hard as SMB3 or Lost Levels

Well worth the wait guys



Odnetnin said:

Those strategies sure are super.
EDIT: "Some useful tips!"? What was that, Corbie?



Blackout said:

That video is pathetic. This video might pass for an instructional video on basic gameplay for new players, but not for a strategy video. Strategy videos are supposed to enlighten players who know the basic gameplay on new ideas that are not obvious to the normal player. This just includes clips that even a six year old could figure out in the first five minutes of playing.



Adam said:

Pathetic is quite a strong word. It sounds as if you feel personally slighted by Nintendo.



Pastry said:

I want to watch it but I can't, it would ruin the experience of when I open up the case and the disc is broken. STUPID KMART!!



y2josh said:

The game looks awesome, CANT WAIT. The title of the video made me laugh.

@pie4prez: I didn't know people still shopped at K-MART



Twilight_Crow said:

Is it my imagination, or this video is trying to tell me is funnier to play multiplayer than sigleplayer?

Awesome video! A lot more usefull and fun!



PhillepinO said:

I believe there are more "strategy" videos in game that you can purchase in-game with coins or something like that



Trin said:

So the strategy for shell stomping is to stomp on enemies who have shells.

That's deep.



Fuzzy said:

This game has a lot of nostalia in it, but it has a lot of news things in it as well!



vonboysp said:


the only interesting thing i see is it look like if all 4 players ground stomp at the same time, it;s like using a pow block.
