Signed Super Mario Bros. 3 Cartridge


Just got back from a trip to New York City with the Ringgold Marching Tiger Band; we performed in the Veterans’ Day Parade, and did a lot of other stuff in the city as well. One of the highlights of the trip for me was this:

I

Yes, I got my copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 signed by Triforce Johnson himself, the man who is first in line for like, every Nintendo thing ever (the Wii U being his final one of these events, sadly). If this copy were to be signed by Shigeru Miyamoto, I feel like my life would be complete, at least signature-wise.

Stay Frosty.

WAIT THERE’S MORE

I’m barely in this video, thankfully (I am in the SBAHJ shirt). MrVonAwesometon is the guy who talks a lot. What I’m wondering is how many people ask for his autograph for things other than the cards he is giving out; is my SMB3 cartridge truly one of a kind?

Anyway yeah; I myself will be camping out for the Wii U in Chattanooga this weekend; my area doesn’t have nearly the number of Nintendo fans as in New York, so I don’t have to start waiting as early as Triforce Johnson!

Get Ready To Brawl!


4 years and counting!

This was definitely the best pre-release Brawl fanart. Ever. This guy’s sprite work is orgasmic, I have to say. The best art for one of the best games of all time makes for the best thing to celebrate Brawl’s anniversary.

Idea: Using the 3DS as a Wii U controller (UPDATE)


A while back, before E3 2011 even, I posted  an article (https://ncbblog.wordpress.com/2011/04/17/project-cafe-idea-using-the-3ds-as-a-controller/) about the 3DS being able to be used as a Wii U controller, but the limitations of one less control stick would make it hard to implement.

Then the new dock-boat thing came out, and suddenly, the 3DS has just as many buttons as the Wii U will have; even the in-facing camera and gyroscope. Like I said in the previous article (https://ncbblog.wordpress.com/2011/04/17/project-cafe-idea-using-the-3ds-as-a-controller/), it would save many gamers the cost of buying the inevitably high-priced controllers, as they would already have a 3DS.
What could it do with 2 screens instead of one? Could it stream all games to the handheld, and not just games that only use one screen? Would the 3D be used in any way? These are just a few basic ideas of mine, but if developers are smart, the possibilities for this idea could be vast.

Nintendo’s New Console: “Project Cafe”


It just got totally announced on Wednesday. 3 days after my console idea O___O

Anyway for updates on all the info of this new console, I have a Facebook page for Project Cafe: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/pages/Nintendo-Project-Cafe/215373875139485

New Super Mario Bros. 3D Idea


Based off of the recent announcement of just such a game, for the 3DS. Credit to Koopalmier for the item-combo idea.

The third New SMB game is a combination of nearly every amazing part of each Mario platformer, compounded into a wholly-new product. It learns from the mistakes of the previous New SMB games by removing the bubbles system, allowing for new hidden paths and areas in every level, sometimes needing cooperation between teammates that are across the map from you. Also, Yoshi has been removed from the game, as he has been captured, but don’t think that he’s gone for good.

The story of this Mario game is somewhat less generic than most: Bowser has kidnapped Peach (well he doesn’t in my Mario 256 idea so I had to do it in this :P), and formed a pact with nearly every evil single king in the Mushroom Kingdom. But as the game progresses, it is discovered that Bowser is not in control; he has been trapped and the Bowser that you face in World 5 is a corrupted AI that goes berserk, becoming a genius verison of the Koopa he replaced. Along with now controlling the whole Mushroom Kingdom, it now sets its sights on Rainbow Road, determined to steal the Star Rod! Of course Kamek is pretty much the mastermind behind all this, but is the AI controlling HIM?

The Worlds are as they go (the SMB1 enemies are in all worlds btw):

World 1: Grassland: The generic World 1. Not much to say.
Enemies: Thunder Lakitu, Goombob, Rexes, Grass Pokey (for realz!!!)
Miniboss- Lemmy Koopa
Boss- Petey Pirhana

World 2: Ruins: Not so much a desert, but more like the ruins of like an ancient Japanese city, or maybe a Greek one. TONS of hidden secrets compared to the rest of the worlds.
Enemies: Chomp, Boo, Rock-Tosser, Attacky-Sack, Rusty Bob-Ombs, Whomps, Ancient Thwomps
Miniboss- Morton Koopa
Boss- Rock Ghost Monster Dude

World 3: City: A huge, sprawling urban metropolis. Skyscrapers are everywhere, and there’s tons of oncoming traffic to avoid.
Enemies: Barber Koopa, Worm things, Sewer Pirhanas, Tons of Sludge Beasts, Kuribo Kars (haha get it :P)
Miniboss- Iggy Koopa (CEO)
Boss- Possessed Wiggler Bus. Seriously how awesome IS THAT?! 😛

World 4: Giant/Tiny World: A “Bonus World” basically. tons of puzzles that require mini-mega mushrooms.
Enemies: Giant Forms of many enemies
Miniboss- Kamek + Ludwig
Boss- Darkness Kamek

World 5: Darkworld: Bowser’s Realm. Lava everywhere, and it feels so much like the end of the game.
Enemies: Dark Forms of enemies, Black Jewels Crows, Weird freaky Camel guys, Evil Coins
Miniboss- The leader of the Camel guys that are new enemies to this.
Boss- Bowser? Upon defeating him his robo-appearance is revealed, and he escapes, then going and conquering the Mushroom Kingdom 100%.

World 6: Fusion World: Coolest one EVAAAR. Hybrid enemies are everywhere, and the levels are plain trippy!
Enemies: Fusion Enemies duh
Miniboss- Elemental Hammer Bro. Uses hammers, boomerangs, fire, ice, and now…. lightning!
Boss- The Hybrid Machine. It’s if Wart’s dream machine turned evil.

World 7: The Mushroom Kingdom Castle Bowser-ified: It’s one giant level like the penultimate level from SSBB’s Subspace Emissary, and you must collect all of the keys necessary to enter the throne room!
Enemies: Boos, Dr. Donezes, Magikoopas, Thwomps, generic castle enemies, Koopatrolls, Evil Toads
Minibosses- Roy Koopa, Larry Koopa, Psycho Magikoopa (From M&L I think), Vampric Wiggler (Can Wigglers get any more badacid), Inflatable Wario from SML2, Fake Bowser (paper lol), Real Fake Bowser (A pinata lol), Giant Mecha Koopa
Boss- Robo Bowser + Kamek. This is where you learn that Kamek is totally behind this. And it will come back to bite him in the

World 8: Savannah: Exactly what it says on the tin. Lions and Tigers and Zebras oh my… 😛
Enemies: Pokeys, Desert Fuzzies, Lions, Camel-things, Ukikis, Camo Koopas
Miniboss- Wendy
Boss- Wendy controlling the Ancient Pokey God guy thing person.

World 9: Dig Site: Lots of digging is everywhere, and tons of fossils. Dinosaurd galore lol.
Enemies: Rexes, Flaminf Fuzzies, Crows, Enemies from the Mountain level from New SMB Wii, Thunder Lakitu+.
Miniboss- Giant T-Rex. Fight him like the dragon from SPM.
Boss- The Koopa Kid Trio from MP5, then an even more fierce dino boss.

World 10: The Tower of Evil: A vertically scrolling world, with different floors based on different areas from other games, serving as mini-worlds.
Floor 1- Grassland again ;_;- Normal enemies. Boss: Goomboss
Floor 2- Desert World generic- Normal. Boss: Tutankoopa
Floor 3- Ice World generic- Normal. Boss: Crystal King
Floor 4- Cloud World- Normal. Boss: Boom Boom lol
Floor 5- Lava World- Normal. Boss: Bowser Jr.
Floor 6- Factory World- Bob-Ombs, Whomps, Thwomps, all artificial enemies, even the Bully dudes. Boss: King Bob-Omb
Floor 7- Subcon- SMB2 enemies Boss: Wart
Floor 8- Sarasaland- SML1 enemies Boss: Tatanga
you free all of the denizens of the MK, along with Bowser, and learn that Robo-Bowser is sieging Rainbow/Star Road!

World 11: Rainbow Road: It’s been assaulted by Robo-Bowser’s Airship fleet! This is crazzzzy!!
1st set of levels are the Star Path like PM. Embers and evil stars and the like.
ON Rainbow Road, however, you face some SMG enemies, along with all 2D Mario platformer enemies. EVER. Absolutely huge levels. you have to face all 8 Koopalings again on one level, and then once you get to the central palace and meet the Star Spirits, they grant you and your partners the power to fight Kamek, who has the Star Rod and has turned Robo-Bowser into a giant mechanical eldritch abomination basically. But before you can even fully beat him, he turns on Kamek, but is promptly blown up. Kamek goes power crazy and tries to anhiliate existence or whatever, but Geno, of all people, scarifices himself to defeat Kamek. Of course this causes Geno to become THE FINAL FREAKING BOSS. Yes, this is crazy. And amazing.

Upon beating the game there’s a 12th world based on SMRPG… maybe.

Anyway, gameplay features!

120 Power Stars- Hidden across the 10 Worlds, you must find a select number of them to open the bonus worlds, which are Giant/Tiny, Fusion, and Savannah. There’s also the 3-coins-per-level but they are for the Game Store (see below).

Combining Power-ups: These are the game’s power-ups: Mushroom, Fire/Ice Flowers, Metal Cap, Cape, Frog Suit, P-Balloon, Boo Shroom, Bee Shroom, Cloud Flower, Rock Shroom, Poison Shroom, Zombie Shroom (combos only), Reverse Shroom (combos only), Spring, Propeller.

You can combine 2 of any of these for amazing effects!

Examples:
Mushroom + Boo Shroom = Giant Boo.
Fire + Ice = Water Flower (FLUDD Suit. The hover variation not spray.)
Frog + Ice = Penguin Suit!
Cape + Metal = Tanooki Suit
Curse Shroom + Fire = Darkness Shroom. Can absorb light/fire for energy to blast away enemies! Also can drain life.
Curse Shroom + Ice = Light Shroom. Opposite of course. Heals partners.

Game Store: you can spend Star Coins on suits for your characters to unlock. AKA you can play as characters like MIPS, Peach, Yoshi (Yoshi’s Island style, w/o eggs), Shell suit, and almost every major enemy! Of course after unlocking them it takes regular coins to buy individual suits for your item inventory.

That’s all I have. C+C Please~
