    Fuck these endgame hatless challenge stages


    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?

    Daisy is from Sarasaland, not the Syrup Kingdom, Which isn't even a thing that I can recall.

    I may have confused her kingdom for Captain Syrup of the black Sugar Pirates?

    I loved those. First real challenge in the game.

    Relying on chaining slippery, yet unforgiving, long jumps over and over with exact timing is not my idea of awesome.

    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.

    Bluetooth lag screwed me up too much on that one. Went to handheld and succeeded on first attempt.

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    Did it just fine in the dock after like 10 attempts or so. I'd say just stop sucking and you'll enjoy it more.

    A dog wearing a fedora showed up in the Odyssey a couple kingdoms back and I'm wondering what unlocks that.

    Seriously, I love that little dog but when did it stow away on the Odyssey?

    Holy crap, twenty-factorial jumps?!

    I understand giving us a challenge, but that'd take like 80 billion years.

    Yo, any possibility of DLC levels?

    Perhaps of the second mini-kingdom?

    Because that kingdom needs the 100 Purp coin treatment.

    That's what I loved about it. It made what could have been a super serious moment into something fun and lighthearted (which actually is more fitting with Mario).

    It's not really like Sonic, it's more like Katamari Damacy.

    (for example)

    Oh, this is nice, there's a party! I'll just go down this pipe...
    Oh no.
    Oh noooooo.
    This is World Crown all over again...

    I've made it up to the lava thing, and consistently failed to make the jumps between the holes. How far through it am I? 20 percent? 10?

    I've passed 700 moons. I'm going through and getting all the remaining moons. While the post game has lots to do, many of the extra power moons are "needle in the haystack" type where you're just re-visiting to see where the extra power moons were added. I much prefer the ones where you enter a warp pipe and are presented with an entirely new challenge.

    I agree, the short challenge rooms are shiny spots in the game's design every time.

    But i must admit, getting one of the obtuse moons through knowing the name and position? I love that.

    EVEN the fucking Taxi moons.

    I love the Hint Toad. I still get to explore and find moons but I don't have to dick around for hours to even track down the general vicinity. The entire game what I did was simple: Explore everywhere I could think of between doing main story objectives, then after I'd scoured everything I would complete the main mission, then I would max out hints and get all of the remaining gettable moons in an area. And now in the post-game I just use the hints to fill out the remaining few moons. The downside of course is losing out on coins. Still trying to figure out the best places to farm them.

    I got the jump rope one.
    I made it up to 97, then after I stopped swearing, I spent five minutes learning the other way to do it.
    so I got it 97% legitimately, and that's good enough for me.

    how are you supposed to be able to kill the three giant piranha plants without cappy (on the dark side variant)? I got that far once, but couldn't figure it out. maybe jump on them from on top of the star cage?

    Here's what I did that made this easier for me.
    When you get to the spinning platform, take the invisible path to the left side of the room that leads to a small room with a chest containing a power moon. Go there every time you get this far and grab the power moon even if you've grabbed it before - it will refill your health to full. Then you've got full health to deal with the three giant piranha plants at the end. That way you can tank a couple hits up to that point.

    Darker Side Attempt Log, day 2:
    Made it through the lava section. That actually wasn't too bad! Are there more Yoshi moons that I've missed? Because that's the first I've seen of him.
    Still, I've made it to the end of the lava section, that should be- oh. Okay, fog section it is.
    Made it to the spiky-flippy-bird thing, then screwed up a jump to a swinging wall pad. Maybe they'll show compassion and put me back at the pipe for this section? Haha, no.
    That's enough teeth-gnashing frustration for today.

    For that part
    don't even bother trying to make it up the clustered part that swings over the lava, the last swinging panel right before that will reach just under the destination wall, so if you position yourself at the top of that pad and jump as high as possible at the peak of its right swing, you'll just barely make it and entirely skip the hard part.

    yeah, I'm not arguing they aren't great challenges, but I've gotten to the point I'm just beating my head against most of them (the second section in vanishing road is my Achilles heel. I've gotten past it maybe 3 times. the bullet bill one? f that return trip. also f jump rope and f volleyball). going to put the game down for a while and come back to it another time maybe, and if not I'd rather keep my opinions of the game favorable and not clouded by my inability to finish it.

    I mean, the feeling I got at the end was great, and I agree, i was breezing through most of the game until I hit the Dark Side Moons... I just kinda wish the game had more challenging postgame moons. So many postgame moons are just "Hey, there's a moon lying on top of a pile of rubble 10 feet away from the odyssey. Congrats!"

    More hatless challenges would've been nice.

    ANYWAY, I'm only missing 3 Moons a 1 Multi-Moon now. Then it'll be a matter of grinding a bit of gold to get to 999 moons, which shouldn't be too hard.

    Guess the 3 moons I'm missing and win a prize. Number 3 will shock you.
