Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS


Recommended Posts

I've not waded into this thread because I wanted a spoiler free experience, but now I've finished it I must say I really loved

 

Spoiler

Seeing all bowsers memories as you hop into him near the end.  SMB and SMW among the images...

 

So anyway, I'm post finishing the game and am working my way world by world trying to get all the moons.  Lots of (battery draining) fun!

I hope this is the case for me as well. I’ve just reached the end of the game and it’s been a similar experience as Galaxy 1, in that it was hugely enjoyable and engaging but I wasn’t quite seeing where the tens were coming from. I liked some kingdoms a lot more than others. So far it’s a mid-tier 3D Mario, not a Sunshine but not a 64 either. 

 

There does seem to be an absolute shitload of postgame content though. I approve. Remember when 3D Land gave you *as many levels again* after the final boss? I mean they were remixes but still. 

 

Yeah, don’t worry about it mate. View the first play through as an intro to each environment, defeating the ‘final boss’ is where the game really begins.

I just finished this (saw the credits). I only have this to say:

 

Spoiler

 

SMASH THROUGH THE BLOCKS THAT BAR YOUR WAY (YEAH!)

NO TIME FOR FEAR, JUST LET IT ALL FALL AWAY (IT ALL FALL AWAY!)

NOBODY BELIEVES IN ME AND YOU

JUST LOOK AT THE WAY THEY STARE

SO WHAT IF WE LIVE IN A WALLED GARDEN AS LONG AS I'VE GOT YOU THEN I DON'T CARE

KICK UP THE WALL, AND TAKE THE PLUNGE

SHIFTIN' THROUGH TWO DIMENSIONS

UP ON THE MOON, WE'LL SMILE AND SWOON

JUST LEAD THE WAY (I'LL FOLLOW YOU)

I'LL PUT MY HAT IN THE RING, 'CAUSE YOU'RE THE ONE

A MIRACLE IN THREE DIMENSIONS

FOLLOW THE BRICK PATH STRAIGHT TO MY HEART AND WE'LL GRAB THE FLAG TOGETHER, THE FIREWORKS ARE GONNA START

 

 

Sublime.

If there's anyone in the early game thinking that this is all a bit easy, don't worry, some of the post-credit stuff is ridiculous.

 

I'm currently tearing my hair out on the (post-credits spoiler)

Spoiler

Dark Side of the Moon 

Spoiler

Hatless challenge door with all the bullet bills. Fucking absurd! And that's just for the main moon; I can see where the second one is, and I can honestly say I don't think I will ever get it, unless there's some trick to it I'm not seeing.

This was definitely one of the most enjoyable and satisfying moons to get. Also is that classic Mario thing of feeling impossible at first but once you've managed it, you realise it's actually really easy!

 

 

Get the key, drop down to the platform below and turn around as another Giant Bullet Bill crashes through the wall. There are a row of pillars in a straight line all the way back. Basically you want to do a long jump between every pillar, with a slight run when you land on each to maintain momentum and leap at the right time. You'll keep dying until you get the rhythm, at which point it's a really fun little thing.

 

Double spoiler, which is the MOST IMPORTANT thing to remember, and meant I actually had to do it twice:
 

 

 
When you arrive on the other side, you want the GBB to break the wall in front of you. As it tracks you, don't do what I first did and run over to the side to avoid it. because it will crash into a bit of the wall that doesn't break. You'll laugh at your stupidity.


 

Just duck in the middle of the wall and let it sail over your head and reveal your lunar prize for dexterity in the face of adversity.

I'm reluctant to progress negate I don't want it to end. Spent yesterday mostly scouring old worlds for moons. Good to hear there's plenty of end game content. 

 

Currently in the Luncheon Kingdom which seems like a great world. 

 

 

 

Also does anyone else feel like paying for clues is cheating?

 

 

edit: I intermittently upload things to YouTube, mostly to share on here. I get hardly any views normally but I made one for how to do the Caged Gold moon and have got 1500 views in 3 days which is probably more than every other video I’ve got, combined. Ha. Shame Nintendo don’t let you monetise without going through the rigmarole of applying for their program (and then I think they take a chunk of everything on the channel, even if it’s non Nintendo! Hands off off my 7 cents, Reggie).

Been mucking around in New Donk City for a few hours. What a level. It's like the Sunshine hub but with ten times the content. I just kept on finding doorways to new bits. I've scoured every inch of the place and I still only have like half the moons!

 

Particularly fond of (not really a spoiler):

 

Spoiler

Getting the moped up to the rooftop parking spots. Great challenge.

 

Also: Super Mario Bros 1-1 is in there. Of course it is.

Just got both moons in that one today!

 

Spoiler

You just gotta successively longjump across the blocks along the bottom.

390 moons deep and can't see myself stopping anytime soon. Not quite sure that it tops the Galaxy games for me, personally because I prefer the platforming in those, but it is outstanding and magical and everything else that has been said a million times already. I adore it.

I'm still pretty early doors in this game, but I just had an unexpected fight with

Spoiler

Bowser.

 

So unexpected in fact, that I turned up dressed in a swimsuit and diving mask.

 

Thank god the Odyssey was close by.  I nipped in and changed into my pants and top hat.  Ready to fuck him right off :angry:

You're exactly right! When I first attempted it, I was all like waaasjdhfjfirk how is this even possible???!!!

 

But once I'd calmed my tits and focused on what I was doing, it's not actually that bad. 

 

This game is so good.

I try to do as much as I can on my own or with the parrot but I've paid for a few clues. When you're down to like 80/84 moons and the only clue the parrot give you is 'timed challenge number 1' it stops being fun to keep going over and over the level looking for the needle in the haystack. There were a couple in the seaside kingdom I don't think I'd ever have got without them being marked on my map.

I found the luncheon kingdom better than i was expecting. However, this kingdom also had the two hardest moons for me

the obstacle course one and the one where you navigate through the lava jumping across etc. Dunno why that bit too so long though, i just kept missing the last bit of lava to jump across the gap

 

Then i was pretty surprised with the section after this with the

dragon?! It kinda looked like skyrim that stage. It's kinda bizarre that nintendo have taken a realistic approach with certain things

 

In any case that unlocked the next kingdom which has been pretty good, especially the new character capture which is possibly my favorite.
