Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

There's a new issue in Canada, and it has to do with essential travel from the continental US to Alaska during COVID. Such travel is accepted as essential, which I didn't know until now even though I probably should have seen it somewhere. It turns out that some US residents may be abusing this to t...

Re: what's your most hated Mario Levels/worlds?

So Lemmy's Castle makes your list, and so does Roy's Castle, but Larry's Castle does not? It has Magikoopas and the block "snake", and it may have the strictest time limit for its length and gimmicks. In my most recent run of SMW, Larry's Castle was the only level where I ran short of time, finishin...

Re: what's your most hated Mario Levels/worlds?

And I was just playing some New Super Mario U Deluxe yesterday evening. Of any mandatory levels, the airship between Worlds 7 and 8 might just be up there. I got to the first checkpoint without getting hit at all. Then came the tilting platform, and things suddenly went downhill. I don't think they ...

Re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

I feel a bit more prepared for the public after I got 5 reusable masks two weeks ago. They can be thrown in the washer/dryer so that they're clean again. They're black, which suits me better than the single-use masks with a hospital blue color. However, the masks did take more than a month to arrive...

Re: Video Game Rumors

If it's true, I will try to keep an eye on what's going on with Sega. Honestly, I don't think it could overtake Nintendo or PlayStation, but I do think it could overtake Xbox.

My Firefox browser got partial on ads and invisible trackers, both on my computer and on my phone. That's it.

Not as easy in one part of the Metro Kingdom. You have to jump in order to do it, and I've been knocked back into a pit a few times because of them.

Goombas are really annoying... How are you supposed to dodge them? :lol: Unless you're specifically talking about the winged and giant ones, because this is pathetic: https://i.postimg.cc/148S5KTG/SMB1-Goomba.gif Goombas are more annoying in the 3D games where they follow you. With that, I might as...

Re: WTF Gaming moments

Yet another moment, this one from my "gaming holiday" (finally putting my Switch to real use, as well as my NES-101 Top Loader). Playing Mega Man 4, I used the Balloon power to slide and grab the E-Tank in Cossack Stage 3. I slid back while the Balloon was still there, and somehow it was instant dea...

Re: What's happening in your own life?

It had been 6 years since I last spent a whole weekend in front of the TV playing games. With all the interruptions that have kept me away from YouTube, plus the TV room setup that I've had since last summer (itself the first time since 2015 since I had anything like that), maybe it's time for me to...

Re: Understanding Copyright, Licenses, and Applications to SMBX

Of the Creative Commons licenses, CC-BY-ND (no derivative) never made any sense to me as a "creative" license because it basically means that the work must be left as it is. Even just having a video game character walk around with the unaltered work in the background can still be considered an alter...

Re: Favourite Video Game objects/items?

I like the Donkey Kong hammer as used in Super Smash Bros. It's rather hilarious to beat someone up while the 8-bit music is playing.

Things are looking okay now in British Columbia. The number of active cases has been flat for just over 3 weeks, and the recovery rate is just above 60%.

Re: What's happening in your own life?

I'm probably going to be just a bit less active on the internet...all because I can't carry reusable bags into the grocery store.

I wasn't ready for that. That's really going to slow me down because I don't have a car to put those bags.

Re: What is your ideal SMBX episode?

The episode would definitely have a custom version of SMBX and probably wouldn't be playable on the commonly available ones.

Of course, custom graphics and music, but maybe some original creations.

Re: What's happening in your own life?

Normally, this would probably go in the "pisses me off" thread, but I actually find it kinda funny. Almost two months ago, I ordered a copy of SSB Brawl on eBay. I got a refund because apparently the owner of the game misplaced it. So I ordered a copy from another eBay account the following week...a...

Re: Super Mario's 35th Anniversary Predictions

It was just a thought. We know it would look like with the modern colors, but there's no reason to be ashamed about using 1985 Mario for something. With that, I'm leaning towards something related to SMB1 Mario, but it's just hard to leave it to my own imagination. Some examples of when Nintendo rea...
