What? Blue shell was the best part!

I didn't like it, and there was never a level in NSMB where I needed to use it, so I avoided it entirely. Sorry to disappoint. :3

(a) do your best to rack up purple blocks early. Two of the bike riders in the image have purple suits.
(b) many of the formations involve L-shaped blocks stacked onto each other in groups of three... set one bit to 'catch' the open L-shape, and then set the two others while all the blocks are stopped in mid-air. while they're stalled, you can continue to place blocks for (and into) other formations to clear them. use that time wisely.
(c) again, try to beat it quickly. Later on in the level, giant block formations begin to fall... they're good if you're fast enough to clear them as they fall, because they have a ton of bits in them, but they're bad if they're not the right colors you need. D:

The key to pictobits is that, in each level, the falling block formations are repeated each time. Replay the level enough, and you'll pick up on the pattern and what you need to do to clear the level. The only bad thing is that, when you get to a certain point with the game, it's too repetitive to be very much fun. I wish there had been more randomization to the patterns of falling blocks.

@Turbo: as I said before (plz to see reply 68), 'twenty-one hundred', 'twenty-two hundred', 'twenty-three hundred', etc. -- those are fine, because there's no round number (ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety) in the initial tens space. As long as it's not a round number, saying it as '(tens-value) hundred' (as would be in the case of the year 'twenty-one hundred') won't get you laughed at or ridiculed. :)

It's a good thing you've got a husband, because I'd never be able to marry you.

ironically, i hate the blue shell in NSMB, but I love it in MKDS (because i love avoiding it and watching it hit the jerk[s] who had previously been behind me). Adam would never be able to marry me, either. :3

Why try to pigeonhole yourself into a label stereotype? You can be a Wii fan and not pick fights and be a jerk about it, and if someone else wants to try and start something because you dared to like something they didn't, they're the ones with a problem, not you. No big deal.

Also, I don't understand the last part of your comment, where you begin rattling off Wii users. Are you embarrassed to be playing a system that "married guys, younger kids, parents, and generally casual gamers" also play? Are you that insecure with yourself that you need to be playing something that only macho, super-manly men and buxom, bodacious babes play, because then it will reflect on you and (obviously) mean that you are also either a macho, super-manly man or a buxom, bodacious babe? I don't understand the logic there. :/

"Sony laughably released the PS with more limited 3D capabilities and, to show that they had no clue where gaming was going, stuck with the SNES controller inherited by their original cooperative deal with Nintendo"

So laughable that Nintendo is now going back to that design with the Classic Controller? Apparently the N64 controller design was not so perfect or it'd still be around. It would have worked for playing VC games, too. And no one's copied it, either.

Surely you've already heard my whining already about the c-stick and how it should burn in hell like the nigh-useless piece of crap it is? I will be first in line when Nintendo gets their heads outta their butts and gives us a classic controller with some actual c-buttons or an official Nintendo-licensed adapter for N64 controllers to be used on the Wii! I don't know who the idiot was who thought an analog stick would be just fine to replace actual buttons, but they're the reason i haven't bought any other VC N64 games than OoT, and I don't have any plans to buy others (if and when they start releasing more), either, no matter how much fun I had playing Star Fox 64 and Majora's Mask when i was younger.

Also, @warioswoods: even though I eventually bought a Dualshock controller with the analog sticks, I always used the d-pad to play games on the PS1 and never the analog. I just didn't enjoy analog control, as the d-pad was always much more precise, and there were early games that did not do well with analog control at all (RPGs and sidescrollers). while i don't doubt that it was just because I didn't have the right games around to play with analog control, I also don't doubt in the slightest that I wasn't the only player back then who greatly preferred d-pad control to analog control even after Sony and Nintendo started using it in their controllers. you may think the analog stick is going forward with games, but it's just another gimmick to me; if at all possible I just don't use them. :3
