Its funny how the "So long, ____ Bowser" discussion has spread all over the internet. It just shows how bad the sound quality was that people have yet to come to a conclusion. Still, I guess it doesn't really matter what he says since we'll all likely continue to say it the same way (regardless of if it turns out to "eh" or "king").

Which one? Cool Cool Mountain (the one where all the sides are abysses and there's a cabin) or Snowman's land? (the giant snowman)

Yeah, there was an owl and a giant snowman (but not fifteen stories tall like in SL) there at CCM.

Tick Tock Clock is so fun to mess with using the grandfather clock you enter with, but man is it tedious using the stylus in the DS version.

I need to 120 star the DS version. It has a couple different stars and I haven't played this game in a while so It'll be interesting.

The mario series is definitely my favorite series to 100%

Tick Tock Clock is a pain when you need to get certain stars. Sometimes I barely missed the time for all the gears to be frozen. Last time I played through the game, I ended up getting the 8 red coins with all the gears moving. It was a pain, but I was tired of messing up the hands.

You can stand right next to the entrance, that way you can walk in exactly when you intend to.

What was everyone's last star to get the first time you completed the game all the way, if you remember?

Mine was in the Secret Slide. It took me about 5 years to figure out that Princess Peach's Secret Slide had another Star hidden in it, lol.

My last star to get the first time I completed the game was finding the 8 red coins in Bowser in the Sky.

Yep yep, always last.

Though recently, the last star was from the Toad in the area after the spiraling stairs. I completely forgot he existed, so I got to final Bowser, was confused for a second, and went to go find him.

Lol me too. I played the DS version first though, and after 149 I hadn't figured that one out :V

Getting the star Stomp on Thwomp in Tick Tock Clock with having time stopped is one of my favorite challenges.
I did that last I played. And got 100 coins that same run. Was pretty godlike, had a close call where I fell but luckily grabbed a ledge somewhere. I think I had all the gears moving at the fastest speed, too, if they change speed.

I'll be recording a playthrough of mine sometime, since I found my device. You all can see how much I fail. :laugh:

I recently got a N64 and have been playing SM64 over the weekend.

I started on Friday and I'm on 100 stars, just playing here and there for a couple of hours. I was on a phone to a friend and she was like how many stars have you got. I told her I had 100 and she didn't believe me lol.

But 120 stars in 2 hours? **** lol makes me feel like crap.

Game is still so great, even when it's lost some of its difficulty.

After downloading this for the Virtual Console today, I nearly felt like crying when I went into the first level :')

Man, it feels so weird getting past the first couple of levels, considering that the last time I played this I was like 5 before I gave it away to some poor relatives of mine.

Lol, and it feels funny going through Boo's Haunt and not have a morbid fear of it like I had 9 years ago :laugh:

WTF is your problem? :urg:
Dude this guy's just trolling. Don't listen to him and hope that the mods will ban him

Man, my favorite world has to be the mountain level or Jolly Roger Bay.

Those worlds are just so beautiful. Man, how I hope for them to remake 64 for the Wii. Screw that bull**** on the DS, because I played and the controls are as inconvenient as ****. I mean a 64 game on the Wii that is almost like 64, give it a couple of additions like 64DS, but not new characters that I'll most likely not use like Yoshi and Wario. Instead we should make Yoshi ridable. When? I have no idea. Either we incorporate him in a couple of levels, ride him only when the game has finished, or after all the stars. Imagine a SM64 that has the graphical capabilities of the Wii. Imagine a game that has so much background shrowded in mist, now revealed to perfection. As beautiful as SMG2's visuals were.

Can we imagine that? Oh how I hope for that. Bad thing it's never gonna happen -_-

My favorite level was probably either Hazy Maze Cave or Wet-Dry World. Both were loaded with secrets and were always fun to replay. Also that Boo's Mansion level scared me when I was a kid :urg:

I doubt SM64Wii will happen, because it's been on the virtual console for years. A 3DS remake isn't too likely either due to the port of Super Mario 64 for the DS being compatible.

And Mad Piano FTW! They need to bring it back, along with the Bookends.

The killer piano at Big Boo's haunt terrified me for years.

I got over it though.
Dude, the fact that the background was pure red and darkness and the evil look of the mansion, just scared me enough to get the **** out of there XD

Also, has anyone noticed how similar Big Boo's Haunt is to Luigi's Mansion?

For the first five years of owning that game I never went into Big Boo's Haunt. Even when I went through the door leading to the basement in the castle I turned and dropped down the stairs as quickly as I could because I didn't wanna see the Boo in the hallway lol.

Yeah I was kinda traumatized by Big Boo in SMW as a kid <_<

I felt the same way for that Boo in the hallway. Took me several days to realize it wouldn't kill Mario with it's stare.

It seriously creeped me out.

Whenever I started a game and wanted to head to the basement first, I'd jump into the moat after it was dried out and I'd enter through that door.

Oh man....good times.

Looooool

I had the guts to go to the back garden with the boos.

I didn't have the guts to stay in Big Boo's Haunt for an entire star search... the piano just stamped the stay away sign on my little boy mind
