    The collectible stars cap out at 800-something. You can then buy up to 999 for an additional reward.

    Alright.
    Let's do this.
    It's not just that shop either, in the postgame all shops sell unlimited Moons. Be sure to buy at least one in each store, though, since the first one counts for the Kingdom's list.

    Ah. Since there's another shop besides the one you talked about that doesn't become available until after the credits, I just wanted to make sure you didn't forget about that one.

    Making it required to shake the controller to get certain moons seems ill-considered, given that using the Switch as a portable is kinda a big part of their design.

    Well this pretty much got me past one of the only reasons I likely wasn't going to bother getting all of the moons, aka the fucking jump rope game.

    Must rush to do this before they patch it! It's the one moon other than that final one I've given up and moved on from. And I'm more confident I'd get the final one eventually than I am I'd get 100 jump rope.

    Are there actually any that outright require it? In the 715 I collected I can think of possibly 1 but I'm pretty sure it was doable motion just made it easier (using cappys circle throw to collect music notes)

    I still haven't managed it, but the Eastern Pillar one in Sand Kingdom doesn't seem possible without shake-boosting.

    I can think of a few where I'd say waggle was required. That one in the sand kingdom, the frog jump one in cap kingdom, some of the stretchy onion ones, probably a couple others I'm forgetting. Just for that extra boost you get on certain capture moves.

    Waggle is also necessary for the frog in the poison wave room in the Lake Kingdom.

    But can't you waggle the switch when in handheld mode? It works for me!!

  • knitdanknitdan Registered User regular
    Technically you can but I found it a lot easier to separate the joycons for intensive waggling sessions.

    You can, but you're shaking the entire thing, which makes seeing what's on the screen difficult at best.

    The first part of this statement isn't true. You definitely don't need to shake for that room. The frog jumps nearly as high if you just hold the Y button.

    So that jump-hat-dive-bounce-hat-dive trick? I figured that out by myself. My point isn't to brag, but to say that it's hella fun having un-spoken yet obvious-when-you-think-about-it tricks built into a game. It's awesome when you figure something out on your own just by goofing around.

    Yaaaaaassss it worked! Took quite a bit of noodling around to pull off but a pretty special moment of release when I got it right.

    I’m not sure it’s easier to perfect than doing the legit way but it’s a hell of a lot more fun trying.

    i've been spoiled by seeing a lot of Gifs of going to high spots using it. :(

    But i have to say i like that it's not that easy to perform, so it still feels like an achievement!

    My technique for the picture match thing was the stare directly at a specific part, usually centralized, and navigate Mario to the piece by peripheral vision. That gave me enough of a frame of reference to line things up where they needed to be.

  • knitdanknitdan Registered User regular
    Actually now that I think on it, the goombq picture match wasn't the one I struggled with

    Post game
    It was the mushroom kingdom one where it just gives you mario's silhouette so you don't have any on-screen facial reference points

    I just finished that frog level without using waggle while on the train. Both moons. You never need to jump that high.

    I am completely freaking out about the New Donkers.

    light spoilers?
    Super Mario Odyssey is set on Earth. Except instead of being our Earth, it's some sort of world with robots and magic everywhere.

    Mario is known to be a human, as is the regent of the Mushroom Kingdom (Princess Peach) and the regent of the Syrup Kingdom (Princess Daisy).

    Mario and Luigi had parents, as evidenced in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, but children are delivered by Storks.

    So the nature of humans is different from our own.

    According to the map in Super Mario Odyssey, the Metro Kingdom, that is, the one kingdom exclusively populated by humans, appears to be in France.

    Additionally, the city is called "New Donk City" and has streets named after Donkey Kong Country characters. The Mayor, Pauline, was one kidnapped by the original Donkey Kong, now known as Cranky Kong. Additionally, she was later kidnapped by Cranky's son, the current Donkey Kong. Now, that would indicate that perhaps the city was founded by the Kong dynasty, yet pwoer was usurped by Pauline. Pauline was saved by Mario several times and it has been established that neither Donkey Kong nor Pauline bear ill will towards each other. This would imply, perhaps, that there was a consensual exchange of power between the Donkey Kong Dynasty and Pauline.

    Then there's the fact that New Donkers all look extremely strange and dress in a stereotypical manner reminiscent of mafiosi.

    Note that not even Waluigi, arguably the most warped pre-odyssey Human, has proportions as warped as New Donkers. New Donkers are the latest humans to be revealed. Note that many humans have been seen in the Mario Golf and Mario Tennis games, and they had similar proportions to Mario.

    But at the same time, the human contestants in the original Tennis game? They look closer to New Donkers.

    What does this all mean?

    I played Odyssey mostly in handheld mode and there were two moons I needed to detach my joy cons for the waggle.

    Frog Cap Kingdom
    There is a moon on top of one of the houses. I wasn't able to reach it by just jumping regularly as a frog. Even jumping out of the frog as Mario at the peak of the jump didn't reach the moon. It was only until I looked it up did I realize waggling did something more in your transformations then what hitting Y gave you.

    Bullet Bill Sand Kingdom
    Reaching the Eastern Pillar Moon as the bullet bill, I could not manage it several times in handheld mode holding down Y to go as fast as I could. First try with the waggle and I reached the pillar easily.

    It was kind of annoying failing multiple times trying to reach those two moons in handheld mood, giving up, looking it up online, and finding out I was doing it right but I just need to waggle.

    That specific moon:
    Yeah, I hated that. 10 hyper exact long jumps in a row with zero room for error is just blech. So often I'd either just jump in the air or ground pound, because there's no wiggle room in the button timing. If those blocks were just 2 squares or even 1-1/2 it would have been fine.

    And the camera... Pick your poison: Take the high road, and likely have the camera wig out on you, which is what you really need when setting up the first jump on a time limit (the bullet bill is coming, duh). Or take the low road, you have time to spin the camera around and set up... but you just doubled your bullshit to 20! perfect jumps.
