If your willing to take the risk, you can get it physically in-shop pretty easily. I live in a big city and most stores seem to have stock even though Amazon doesn't.

On a side note I had never played these three games before, they seem to work control-wise very similar to odyssey.(obviously) Sunshine isn't hard, it's just annoying, the FLUDD when it aims up and down feels like it could be inverse, and the octopuses surrounding the bosses, and piranha plants are harder than the bosses themselves. It's still a good game though.

@Apportal £5. I didn't mind waiting a bit longer and the voucher was about to expire and can't use it on the eShop. I played Super Mario 64 this year on Wii U and I wanted to start with Super Mario 64 before going to the most exciting and improved game of the collection, which I haven't played for years.

@BlueOcean if you think it's worth it, that's what matters. Keep us posted on what you think Sunshine's like

@Apportal Of course it's worth it LOL, otherwise I would have lost the voucher, contacted customer service for a credit card refund and waited for a new order to arrive or look elsewhere. As I said, I beat Super Mario 64 just recently so no big deal waiting one more week. It's not the end of the world. Actually, I have had a lot of fun sharing memories with all you guys and helping newcomers.

@BlueOcean Yeah you've been a huge help in this forum. I haven't played 64 or Sunshine is what seems like decades so it was nice to have you contribute. I know Galaxy like the back of my hand so no help needed there

I assume you'll be heading to Sunshine first, then?

@Apportal Thank you, I'm glad to help and I might ask you things when I play Super Mario Galaxy because you're the expert (I've "only" beaten it twice 100% 😂). Heck, I might even ask about my favourite Mario 3D game Super Mario Sunshine because I only got 100% once and that was back in the day although I didn't need any kind of information except for some blue coins.

I'm playing Super Mario 64 now. My first disappointment is the frame rate, I knew it was 30fps but still, I noticed right away on the Lite screen. The game looks crisper, smoother and with no input lag compared to Virtual Console releases. I already got the Wing Cap star 😁. It still is a fun game to play.

I just completed the Tower of the Wing Cap for the first time, and... it wasn’t really that hard. Sure, it took me a few tries, but after I new how to control the flying, it was really quite easy.

@BlueOcean Well, I wouldn't call myself an "expert" but I have played the game to death. Got 100% 3 or 4 times I believe. Great game

I actually like collecting blue coins despite most people. It sucks to not have a proper guide to them but snatching a couple in a row feels great. I believe I've got 7 shines in from them now. Just 17 more to go...

Does anybody know how to give the snowman his body in Cool, Cool Mountain? Every time I do it it just rolls right past.

@ToadBrigade The easiest way is to stand still next to the body in the rolling head's way even if you get a hit. It's 100% effective.

@Apportal I can't wait to start Super Mario Sunshine 😄.

I've started up Sunshine (for the first time ever), and it's still a nice looking game, especially the water. Definitely a step up from 64 in terms of difficulty, at least at the outset.

Granted the first two missions in Bianco Hills aren't difficult at all, but the red coin mission is more involved than it's counterpart in 64's Bob-Omb Battlefield (comparing them as the first worlds in their respective games), the secret stage on the hill is harder than anything in Bob-Omb Battlefield, and the second fight with Petey Piranha is more involved than any boss fight in 64 (and harder than most).

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

The red coin bit made me want to throw the controller through the wall. Especially because I relied on that fat sheila to throw me on the cliff or the roof.

@Tendo64 If that level made you angry you aren’t ready for what’s coming up

I’m kidding, I’m kidding. The red coin missions sucked in that game. None were enjoyable or unique in any way. Just a mindless collectathon.

@ToadBrigade What I do in that mission is to be ahead of the snowman's body the moment it starts rolling. That way I can lead the way to the head. You need to be relatively near the rolling body for as long as possible, though. Once you follow those steps, the snowman should get his body back. Hope this helped.

Right on both counts unfortunately haha!

Bit of honesty here: I haven’t touched SM3DAS in a just under a week. This is mostly because my attention was elsewhere (MHGU and ACNH, amongst others), but also because I’m now at a point in 64 where nearly every mission I have left to do is either a red-coin mission or is Cool, Cool Mountain - and, honestly, I don’t wanna do those.

Autocorrect keeps causing me to write things I didn't Nintendo.

@Tendo64 I've beaten the game more than a dozen times, and I honestly don't know which coin requires you to be thrown. If you start with the first coin between the ropes suspended between the two buildings, there is a easy path that goes past every red coin. You can get anywhere by simple platforming. You don't need to be thrown by the Pianta. I don't even think it's part of the level, since she's always there.

I've noticed that in Galaxy I complete one world at a time, whereas in 64 and Sunshine I move between levels a lot.

@Octane
I just stick to the normal order until i get to a star that requires one of the special caps. Then i go get those and go back and finish the world i was on.

@Tendo64 you can go to the top of the windmill and jump on the top rope column and go down from there. I got them all in one go.
