Just over 5 weeks since the release, I finally completed both Super Mario 3D World, which I played second, and Bowser’s Fury, which I played first. Grinding on Champion’s Road with all 5 characters was probably the toughest time I’ve had on a Mario game ever.
Before the 3D All-Stars completion, I decided to buy NSMBU on the Switch. I was initially hesitant having invested so much time into the Wii U version, but it was definitely worth playing again. I managed to not only complete the story modes again, but this time actually complete the challenge mode as well. The other 2 save files are just copies of the first one in both cases.
It’s been a long time since I last made a blog update. I have completed a number of games during the Nintendo Switch’s life so far. For instance, I have 100% completed Super Mario 3D All-Stars, collecting every Power Star and Shine Sprite. Today, I collected the maximum number of lives in each game to show off some more. On my Switch, it states I have played these 3 games for a total of 140 hours or more.
I’ve neglected posting updates for far too long. But I will now hopefully keep up with making blog posts again 🙂
I’ve only recently got back into recording video proofs for my optimal times, but I’ve added 3 recently for New Super Mario Bros. U, to bring my total of optimal NSMBU videos to 29. There is also one suboptimal time included in the playlist, for Graceful Glide, which I hope to get the new optimal time on some day and so replace that video eventually.
Last night, I completed Cardboard Box, achieving not only 3 stars on all courses, but also all 25 golds on CyberScore. What’s more, I even raised the bar in 1-21, setting a new record, cutting down a whole second off the time for 100 more points.
I’ve been playing NSMBU most of the time over the past week and a bit. 13 Videos are now in the playlist and lots more will come soon. I have a gold on every 1-up rally challenge: although I still have a way to go to optimise my scores on them, so I will continue on playing NSMBU.
