Mr. Bungle: Luigi Bros. is still in the game, however the method of unlocking it by having a save from New Super Luigi U no longer works, so you can get it only by beating the game. The hidden Luigis in stages are also still present.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: poll: How many Wii U ports have you double dipped on?

Out of Nintendo's games, I just have Captain Toad, which I got from the same Walmart blunder that Nickmitch mentioned. I wouldn't have gotten it otherwise however. I'll be getting Super Mario 3D World next week, which I got a decent deal on, and will probably sell my Wii U disc for whatever peanuts it fetches at this point.

Beyond that, I have Minecraft since they stopped updating the Wii U version when the new Switch one released. I also have Terraria since they never bothered to finish the Wii U version, which was a bummer and I wish I knew that before I bought it.

I'm new to this.

Your second guess is correct, it's Paladins.

The other one is Rune Factory 4 Special. Yes, it bothers me too that the icon doesn't show the title, hee hee.

A lot of low cards in this hand, Pushmo World is the only one worthwhile to me. It's a bit of a shell without Miiverse, but still a fun puzzler.

I wouldn't mind playing some more of these games, but I don't think the scheduling would match up any time soon.

I'm a little surprised Khushrenada hasn't hosted forum awards such as "post of the year."

I actually think some of the latter stages are amongst the best in the game, with ones like Wet-Dry World, Tiny-Huge Island, and Tick-Tock Clock being my faves. My only issue with Rainbow Ride is how slow the carpets move.

This is what I had posted in the other thread:

Perhaps it's because I grew up with Super Mario 64 and 3D games in general, but I've never had issues with controlling this game, and I still don't. With that said, I've played only the actual Nintendo 64 version, and not any of the various re-releases (DS version notwithstanding). The Nintendo 64 control stick is functionally different from the type of sticks used on modern controllers, so I wouldn't be surprised if that has a whole different feel to it and may not work as well.

For me, the main thing I find which makes Super Mario 64 feel dated is the camera, but even that isn't a big deal. It's one of those things I've accepted and learned how to deal with it; for one example I find using the zoomed-out Mario cam is better than the default on some levels. There are just a few select spots in select levels where I still run into a problem. I find myself to be forgivable of the camera, and one reason is because as far as I'm concerned, a 3D camera is still not a solved issue, even in today's games.

I still find this game surprisingly playable and enjoyable.

And worst of all, it was Insanolord's bomb word I lost to. Oh, the shame. If anyone needs me, I'll be sleeping in my car having sold my house to make up for some... less than stellar.. purchasing decisions.
I would say this is far more embarrassing than what happened to me.

I'm just trying to hide my identity.

Also I thought you meant I had called you the god of Safe Words. Oops.

General Gaming / Re: Shocktober 2020: Play scary games here.

But that's not scary obviously, so which of these should I tackle this year: ZombiU or Resident Evil Revelations? Never played either of them.
The latter, but good choices either way. Revelaitons is the better game, but ZombiU is more of a novelty.

69
Overwatch doesn't have cross-play, so no worries there.

70
Wait, what? I've never proclaimed myself a god of Safe Words! That was Mop it up!
Wait, what? When have I ever said anything like that?

71
I s'pose you Discordians have an advantage, but I still refuse to go there!

72
Yeah, I don't know Mr. Bungle very well. Is this his first game? For some reason I was thinking that he simply chose the one at the very top of the list.

73
No worries, I should have checked out your rules post since you're a new host. My bad!

I'm actually okay with mixing up rules and seeing how things play out, spices up the games. Not that my input matters anymore.

74
Seriously? Who chooses some random nothing game as the first choice?!

I guess there's a first time for everything, but I sure have had the worst luck the last few games. I guess one can't be on top (3) forever.

Also, shouldn't Khushrenada get the bomb word choice? Or have you changed the rules for this game?

75
Never heard of Godfall so sure we'll go with that.
