It's like the Star Trek V of the Nintendo universe, it never happened, it doesn't exist, ok?

exactly, including the fact that some people like to subject themselves to its terribleness just because it is so godawful cheesy and horrible, lol. It was certainly an interesting idea, though, with the descended-from-dinosaurs thing and all that, lol.

i just remember the part where they first got the super mushroom(s) or whatever from the de-evolved king... ugh, so gross. D:

I left the ever-wise monkey-man's comment alone because he has made a choice that needed to be brought to everyone's attention: Please keep this thread to your favorite MJ songs (or your lack of them, which is also perfectly OK to post about), and leave the nasty bickering over the man himself out of it.

@suburban_sensei: ah, okay. in that case, as Clickety said, you don't have to worry about keeping a certain amount of coins on your account or not. Any coins earned during the Club year will be kept track of on the Elite status meter for you, which is separate from your normal coin balance -- coins are never subtracted from the Elite status meter until the end-of-Club-year reset. :3

Really?! Wow, I didn't know that, not quite sure how you could complete a level without getting a high score but hey ho, at least there is a fix, kinda. 0_o

it happens when you fill your leaderboard with high scores before you manage to finally beat the level. It is entirely possible for you to beat the level and not have a high enough score to beat your own scores from times when you didn't beat the level. :3

@jpfan: are you dizzy because your eyes are no longer tracking the movement on the screen? that happens to me sometimes with DDR, movie credits, and other things where you're constantly tracking things moving only in one direction. just make sure you take regular breaks (as you said you're doing already, keep playing it off and on instead of one big, extended sitting), and no, you don't have to unlock descent and growth every time you play. Once you've beaten it and gotten a high score, it'll be unlocked for you forever. :3

@Toon Link: you don't lose the coins that are on your account, but the meter tallying up the coins you've earned in the year will be reset. Here's an example:

In Year 1, you earned a total of 650 coins. Therefore, you earned Platinum status for the year, and received the prize of your choice. Your elite status coin-meter was reset, but those 650 coins are still available on your Club Nintendo account for you to trade in for normal Club prizes for two full Club years after the end of Year 1.

In Year 2, you earned a total of 350 coins. Though you now have a total of 1000 coins on your account to spend on normal Club merchandise, you only earned Gold status for the Club year, because you only had 350 coins on your elite status coin-meter, and thus you were only eligible for the Gold prize. The original 650 coins are only good for one more Club year, while the 350 you earned this Club year are good for two Club years after the end of this year (Year 2).

@Suburban_sensei: that's not how it works... you'll notice that, even though you have 900 Club Nintendo points sitting in your account, you're not at the 600 point Platinum status level automatically, right? your status resets at the end of each CN year, and you have to earn another 300 or 600 points to make Gold or Platinum status by the end of the next CN year in order to win another prize. :3

I liked the added challenge of using Luigi; he's a little bit slipperier to control than Mario, and Cosmic Luigi is pretty brutal D:

Also, @Swerd_Murd: think of wrestling as a testosterone-filled soap-opera. everyone who watches it knows it's fake as hell, but it's still fun to just go along with the stories (sometimes) and watch some good matches, however scripted the outcome. Those men bust their butts (sometimes literally) to entertain their fans; gotta give 'em mad props for that.
