General Mario Games Thread

This isn't fun anymore. After 29 tries, I've only been able to get to the 5th area on the Perfect Run in SMG2. I'm starting to consider quitting on this altogether, but I want to see the special planet at the end, dammit...

A question: I'm doing this with Luigi right now. Would I have better luck with Mario?

I'm probably retired tbh

Yeah, I feel the same way. I'm getting pretty sick of the Perfect Run. I've been playing as Luigi this whole time. I can't see any special benefit to using Mario considering Luigi can jump higher and further anyway.
I actually did it with Mario but that Star was just HELL to get! You can avoid those two moving electric barriers by just long jumping to the Pull Star. Finally, I somehow managed to finish the final area the first time I got there.
Gah, people are starting to BEAT the game and I haven't even PLAYED it yet.

It depends on who you're better with. However, certain areas are better with the following, IMO:

Yoshi segment: Luigi (very small difference)
? Panel segment: Mario (very small difference)
Cloud section: Luigi
Laser section: Luigi
Pull Star section: Luigi
Hammer Bro section: Luigi if you're avoiding everything, Mario if you're going through them.

Yeah. I would use Luigi.

I manged to get the green stars to appear. Im going through the worlds in order getting them all. So yeah what did I think of the 120 normal stars? Very good levels and challenges however some where just to based on gimmicks.

Im not looking forawrd to the perfect run....
Onto world 4 now, I've done some prankster comets though not a whole lot yet. Also, the hidden star in Honeybloom Galaxy took me about 20 seconds to complete.... In total.... WHAT THE HELL?
Come on, The Perfect Run is an awesome challenge opposed to the rest of the game which was way too easy. {B(
So after a couple weeks of not playing, I started SMG2 again and beat it with 105 stars. So today will be rounding up the last 14 (the last grand star is considered one, right?)
I've realized this was outdated.

Im making good progress. Ive done nearly all the special world green stars. The second on the roller coaster galaxy is a asswipe to get. Seriously I lost around 50+ lives.

But I did the Mega Koopa 1UP trick so lives are easy to get. B)
I didnt die once on the stone cyclone green stars, :P

That perfect run is EVIL!
I have probably died about 20 times!
The furthest I got to was the hammer bro segment.
I'm annoyed at the fact there are no midway points!

Bowser's Attack On Yoshi's Island Is Canceled...
I'll be away from the 24th of July for a about a week.

Going good for me. I finally managed to get Rainbow Coasters second green star which was a pain in the ass. With that I did the Special Worlds Green stars, which was easy. :P

Working mu way around levels I like.
242/242!

Finally! Funny, I kept messing up on the Hammer Bros section. I kept trying to kill all the Hammer Bros. I know you only have to kill the Boomerang Bros at the end, but I kept killing all the Hammer Bros since I was afraid they'd pummel me with a hammer when I tried to pass them. Foursword4 advised me to just avoid them completely and go for the Boomerang Bros, and I beat it on my first try with his method. :O

Final death count...875. #w{:s}

Happy that's done. I'm really surprised I 100%'ed this game, seeing as how I only got around 103 stars in the first game. I guess this one held my interest much longer.
115/120(240)
my only stars left are the final level's speedrun, and whatever galaxy or galaxies are behind the final luma. After that I guess it's green star tiem. Now I need starbits...
Edit: Oh, slimy spring's (Edit2: and boss blitz's) comet hasn't shown up yet
I've realized this was outdated.
I beat the Perfect Run recently as well. Thank God for that is all I can say, as with 557 or so lives down and such, I'm happy never to have to do that damn level ever again.

Oh, and a possible tip to the last poster... for the Slimy Spring Galaxy, because the second mission is one of the Chimp's challenges, I hear you have to get the Comet Medal in both that level and Bowser's Galaxy Generator, beat said level again and return a bit later to open it. It might be caused by a certain number of stars or so, but most people I know have it at least the 106th odd star they got in the game.

As for Mario's Nightmare Quest? Well, it's currently on Fusion Gameworks, ROM Hacking.net or the GCN at the moment.
I got the letter from the chimp after I got my 119th star. So now all I have to do is beat the game again and I get to do the fun green stars!

242/242!!!! :D
The Perfect Run took me quite awhile but I finally beat it (after about 40 tries). Well, I really enjoyed this game! Also, where does it say the final death count?

It should say it in the upper-right corner of your file tab. It doesn't say "death count" or anything, just the number.
My death count was 419 right after I got all 242 stars. Probably about 30 of them were from the last star.
Just spent most of today playing. Went from 180 to completion. That last star challenge was brutal - I thought people were just being sissys or something since people have talked up other supposedly "hard" stars, but no. That last section with the swarm of Bros. drove me to frustration. Took me 27 tries to beat it.

Final death count: 479 - play time: 30 hours, 24 minutes.

I had a ton of fun. This is the first time I've 100%'ed a game in who knows how long.
