Things I am already tired of in Mario Maker

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

This is the game I have been playing and I have been playing it everyday and have uploaded some levels and deleted a few because I didn’t really like them. One of them was my son’s but it’s just spammed with platforms and enemies and items. I never liked his course TBH. My best ones so far I have created are Mario Bros retro and Vine to the Exit. The rest I have made are not really my favorite so I am trying to work on a cool level and I hope people will like it and it gets lot of stars. I will download other levels sometimes to see how they created them and the homes or buildings. Now on with what I am tired of already.

Automatic courses:

This is so boring now. I want to play the level, not watch Mario beat it on his own. It’s a waste of my time and these levels do come in handy for 100 Mario Challenges. But I decided to start skipping these levels.

Just run courses:

This is also getting boring so I am going to start skipping these soon too because they are also like the automatic courses except you hold down the run button and the D pad to make him move.

Musical levels:

I want to play the level, running across the bottom of the screen while enemies hit the note blocks to make musical notes is not playing the level if there are no enemies or obstacles. I did come across one of them where you had to jump at the very end and I thought that was clever. I should have given that level a star for the creativity and original work.

The chanting song

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Remember when Nintendo released Ocarina of Time, people got offended by the chanting so they had to recall all the games and remake the song and release the new copies? That was what they did before they went digital so now instead of recalling all the games and having everyone send their game back and sending them a replacement of the game, they can now fix the bugs or fix anything errors they missed in the game and now all we have to do is download the update and sometimes it’s automatic or the system doesn’t let you play the game unless you do an update. The con part is it takes up memory.

Here is the original of the Fire Temple song people took offense to. I always thought it sounded Native American.

Here is the politically correct version:

Why were people offended by the chanting? According to the youtube comments about the original version, it had to do with the translation of the chanting and with Muslims and with religion.

But Nintendo had decided to speak up about it in 2012:

So apparently what I heard about their reason for the removal was untrue because Nintendo had created both versions before the release and they did it to avoid controversy, they didn’t make the change after the release and then fix the issue due to public outcry.

But I no longer have the cartridge with the original because I recently traded it in because I was going to get it on the 3DS which I did.

Gamefly shipping issues

Monday, August 24th, 2015

I sent back Puzzles & Dragons two weeks ago and they sent out Pokemon Art Academy. I play it and didn’t really like it so I sent it back the next day and they received the game but never sent out the next game on my list. I had also realized I had accidentally sent back my Zelda game with it so that means my son didn’t lose it, hooray and I apologized to him about it. I did tell Gamefly about it and they hadn’t received the game and I wait and wait and the game still shows in my queue. I reported the game as not received last Wednesday and I still never heard back from them about what they found out so I sent them an email and they misunderstood and thought I was telling them they never received Pokemon Art Academy so they told me they got it and they will ship out the next game shortly. So I do live chat and it’s the same woman who had sent me the email so I told her she misunderstood and they never got back Puzzles & Dragons but they did get back the other game. She asked me when i sent it back and I said two weeks ago and she looks and saw I had reported I had sent one of my own games back to them and I said yes and I told her I sent back Puzzles & Dragons and they sent out the next game and I played it and didn’t like it, so I sent it back and they got it but never the other game. She says “one moment” and she comes back and says they have reported it as not received and will send out the next game shortly. Then that was the end of our chat.

I hope this solves it and I am thinking of going down to the post office tomorrow to file a complaint for item never received and tell them it was a self paid envelope for Gamefly and it was supposed to go to Seattle and the company said they never received it. Maybe it got dropped somewhere in the warehouse and if i file something they will look for it and might find it and send it out again. I have heard those things happen. Mail gets dropped sometimes and falls behind machines and stuff. I just hope no one took it and I know the postman took it because it got scanned by USPS which is why Gamefly sent out the next game so they know I sent it back.

I hope this all gets resolved or else it’s not worth paying for it every month if I am not getting a game from them.

That annoying Natalya

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

Anyone remember this old game GoldenEye007 and how annoying Natalya would be sometimes? She would sometimes get in your way of your shooting and you accidentally kill her. She is very smart in the movie but yet couldn’t crack Boris’s simple code for “You sit on it but you can’t take it with you” but yet in the game she is so dumb which is ironic.

This is a fanmade video and it makes fun of the game and the glitches and the Natalya game character.

You know what sucks?

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Losing a Zelda game. I had just gotten Majora’s Mask this past June and I was at the Water Temple and then I just stopped playing it shortly before our trip. I thought I had it in my game case with my other games I keep in my purse and then I discover it’s gone. Last time I remember my son was playing it so I figure he probably lost it. I know it was in my room and I remember the time he dumped all my games out on the floor and I made him pick them up and I told him that is not how he treats my games or otherwise he wouldn’t be allowed to play them anymore. Then later I saw my daughter with one of the games so I took it from her and put it away with the rest of the games. I cleaned my room looking for that Zelda game thinking it was laying around somewhere when my son dumped them out but i didn’t see it. I was a little upset and I figured, “oh well I will have to start all over with my quest when I repurchase it again.” That is what happens when you have kids, things get lost and I have lost several of my game files through my son already including one of my Zelda files or two from the DS games and he erased my Super Mario World file that was complete 100% and the special world was completed, my first boyfriend did that. Then he erased the file again when I had to start over so I told him i was done with that game I won’t play it ever again if he is going to be deleting files and not listening to me. I know it was an accident but I was teaching him a lesson about not listening. I can be all or nothing person, if something bad happens, I am done and won’t have anything to do with it again. I had to think of a harsh thing, not let him play any video games with files on them until he can read. I wish we could put in a PIN number before deleting files so that will make it a lot easier for us parents. Maybe that technology will come soon. I had even decided to not let him play my Majora’s mask game because I don’t want him to accidentally delete my file on it too after I tell him what not to push and where not go to and he still does it anyway sometimes. But what if he did play it anyway and he accidentally deleted my file and he panicked so he hid the game and now is saying he doesn’t know where it is and last he saw it was next to his 3DS in my room? Which is why I won’t let him play that game and say it’s my game only and he can play it when he is older when I buy it again. But if the game does show up again, then it can be his to keep and will be only his and I wouldn’t have to worry if he accidentally deletes his own file or my old one.

Yeah I know, do not let your illiterate kids play with your video games that have files on them. Even if you tell them what not to push and where not to go and even if you are careful, it can still happen. It would be nice if we could put parental locks on deleting files. Kids don’t always listen. But I pick my battles, if I hadn’t played a game in for so long for years, then it’s not too big of a deal that he accidentally erased it. Or if I haven’t played the game because I got stuck on it because it got too hard so I lost interest, not a big deal. But it still frightens me because he could do that to my other games I am still playing and he could do the same to those which is why I have to make a big deal about it than brushing it off.

One of my other favorite Kirby songs

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

I first heard this in Kirby 64 and I enjoyed the song.

The original:

Here is the second version. It almost sounds as identical to the first one.

Final one:

Too bad they didn’t do anymore of these.

Politically incorrect date

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Apparently 9/11 is unPC for a video game release of Mario Maker.

http://nintendoenthusiast.com/news/nintendo-explains-why-the-release-date-for-super-mario-maker-is-september-11th-911/

People were offended Nintendo picked this day for their new release. But we have other dates like 12/7, and 4/20, should we avoid releasing anything on those days? What about on 11/22? Let’s not forget 4/19.

I don’t think we should avoid releasing anything on this day because of the day we got attacked by terrorists and over 3,000 lives were lost. I don’t agree with the negative reaction about this release date.

But I am looking forward to trying this game when it comes out.

Butter Building music

Monday, August 10th, 2015

This has been one of my favorite Kirby songs. The first one I ever played was Kirby’s Dreamland 2 at age 13 when my brother got a Game Boy and it was my first time ever playing a Game Boy.

Here is the song throughout the years on the games that had this song:

He only forgot this one:

Here is the latest version:

Kirby 64 was the first time I heard this song and then I heard it in Kirby’s Avalanche so I then knew it was an older song.
