Mario Maker Makes a Million… courses in a week!


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

It was always going to happen, Mario just has that charm, but within a single week of its release gamers have already uploaded over one million levels that they created, via that great game we are all getting to know, as Super Mario Maker.

When I first heard the number, I was stunned, but then logic kicks in, along with math yes it is more than possible to understand just how easy it was for this to come to pass, but logical or not, it is an impressive feat regardless. Super Mario Bros has been kicking around for the last 30 years and yet if you were to add up every level and include every level from every Mario game ever, the sum is still dwarfed but what us, the gamers created within a week.

My Great Capture Screenshot 2015-09-16 16-35-48

Sure at least a hundred thousand of those levels are insanely easy and another hundred thousand being auto-run levels where you don’t have to press a thing, but that’s just all part of the fun anyway. And in all honesty, half that sum could just be completely terrible, but even then the half that is good, still over shadows the many levels the Mario franchise had to offer, but who cares? Now the franchise can boat more levels and if I’m honest, I really wouldn’t be surprised if in the next New Super Mario Bros, fingers crossed on NX, we might be seeing a couple of the most popular levels included, after all, Nintendo themselves might like a what of what they see and want to include it.

It’s understandable now why Nintendo only let us start off by being able to upload 10 levels, because if they allowed us to twenty, well then, we would have hit two million instead, which yes would have been a bigger celebratory moment, but with a game that is just getting more and more interest, more people are buying the game and uploading the levels, so it is fundamentally important Nintendo can have those levels up there to be enjoyed. Plus it’s not like the 10 uploads is set, players can earn more uploads, provided the levels they do create are enjoyed by those who play them, so with that, I need to take some levels off and get some new and better ones up, but here’s to you Nintendo and you Mario. You guys are soaring to the clouds and you’re taking us all with you, but more importantly, thank you, for everything!

Till next time folks. Keep up the good fight and Keep on Gaming!

Making the Mayhem – Super Mario Maker


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

Who would have thought that so soon after I had to bid farewell to Mike Scorpio’s copy of Super Mario Maker, I would be saying hello to my own one, from Mike Scorpio himself, thank you Mike. I guess you read the part in the review where I contemplated erasing you from the equation, so I could claim your game, people were doing the very same over GTA V. Still I have mine now, so it’s time for some fun.

The Mario Maker sensation has taken over and all I want to do is build levels completely different than the last. Sure I could create ones of death from above that all they want to do is try to kill you at every turn, but that’s something for another day, plus I haven’t got all the good toys just yet. Instead I have created a whole range of uploaded levels that are all about fun and celebrating Mario and now I’m not only going to tell you about each stage, but also share their Course ID’s so all of you are welcome to try your hand at them, first up, let’s rob a bank.

The Bank Heist – Rob the Vault:  In this level, Mario is tasked with one simple job, to clear out the vault. Whether you take the front door or go in through the skylight, you have to bypass all of the Bank’s security team, including a Bowser both inside and outside the bank and liberate every posible coin from the vault you can before making your getaway.

Course ID: 62BE-0000-0040-FBB2  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

Mario Payday – 30th Anniversary:  Mario has been saving Princess Peach from Castles for 30 years now and his franchise has sold over 210 million units and now, Mario wants his share of the profits. Join Mario as he runs riot and finally gets his big payday as he celebrates his 30th anniversary.

Course ID: 8865-0000-0041-2933  (Super Mario Bros)

The Undersea Aquarium:  When Mario isn’t racing, saving the world or fighting, sometimes he likes to go for a little swim at the Undersea Aquarium, but be careful, sometimes the animals escape from their exhibits.

Course ID: 37DD-0000-0040-F72D  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

The Money Run:  Mario’s payday isn’t quite over yet there is still more coins to be had, but will he be able to get it all, or will the enemies get him first?

Course ID: Course ID: 5EDA-0000-003E-B535  (Super Mario Bros)

The Great Wall of Goomba:  Move over Great Wall of China, this is the Great Wall of Goomba, as an army of Goomba guard their favourite wall. With the use of Star Power, run through them all and claim the wall for your own.

Course ID: 9A0B-0000-003F-48ED  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

Goomba Fitness:  Mario has been running around and even thirty years later, his weight is practically still the same and even all the Zumba workouts aren’t working so it’s time for a Goomba workout. Run, dodge and dive your way to the end. The Goombas are everywhere and they can’t wait to see Mario fail his latest weight-loss regime.

Course ID: D4DE-0000-003E-E6DB  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

Automatic Super Mario Bros 3:  After seeing so many “automatic” levels, I took it upon myself to try and create one of my own and tooting my horn here, it’s not half bad. Want to make it to the end? There are two ways, don’t press anything, or press and play as you hope to make it to the end using the enemies you come across.

Course ID: 4671-0000-0041-CAF8  (Super Mario Bros 3)

Pipework Madness:  Pipes and Mario go hand in hand, except on this level where the pipes actually want to kill Mario and if they can’t the winged Koopa’s will certainly give it a go. Can you make it through the madness of this piped maze and see Mario safely to the end and on top of the flag pole?

Course ID: 8865-0000-0041-2933  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

Stairway to Goomba Stomping:  In this level, Mario is face to face with a stairway that just goes up and up and up. Collect the stats and climb the stairs for at the end is only a huge hoard of Goombas waiting to be stomped. Can you stomp them all before the Star power expires?

Course ID: 1F88-0000-0042-480A  (New Super Mario Bros Wii U)

The Sky is the Limit:  There are two paths you can take, sky high, or down below, both will take you to your goal, but one offers more danger and challenge than the others. Which road will you take, the high road, or the low road?

Course ID: 8865-0000-0041-2933  (Super Mario Bros 3)

These weren’t all the levels fabricated, but they were my favourite, but what kind of person would I be if I asked you to play mine and I don’t play yours in return, so send in those course codes. Tweet us at @miketendo64, message us via Youtube and comment below. We want to play your levels and if we really like them, we’ll even film then, with us playing them, so come on people, give us some courses to play!

Till next time folks. Keep up the good fight and Keep on Gaming!

Get Ready for the Go – Pokemon Go


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

 

 

Oh Pokemon you have been with us since the 90’s and many of us grew up with you, from two different generations as even our children have grown up with you also. You are a series well in our hearts and joining the spectacular Pokken Tournament next year, a game that is already blowing us away, you’re giving us another game that will do just that, Pokemon Go. But it is one thing to hear about it, it is another thing to see it in action, so let’s check out the video:

Discover Pokemon in the Real World with Pokemon Go: 

Now why this game amazing? You might be asking if you haven’t heard anything about it, or watched the video, well for starters it is Nintendo’s first move into free-to-play games for mobile devices, which means in 2016 Pokemon Go will be available for play on both Android and iPhone devices, for free, with in-game purchases also available, which will no doubt include bundles of ultra balls and master balls to ensure successful captures.

The pessimist in me really doubts it will be as great as shown in the trailer, for instance an army of trainers teaming up together to defeat Mewtwo, or other legendary Pokemon before the timer ticks down to zero, especially since I live in a small village in the middle of nowhere, but you know what, even if it is only half as good as what we’ve saw and it will still be hands down the best game available to play on your mobile devices, and as already mentioned above, it will be Free to download.

Just the fact that it is an augmented reality app game, makes me tingle all over. You could be sunning yourself at the beach, only to have a Krabby to be in the vicinity, or even a Gyrados, or Sharpedo or any of them. Because it doesn’t matter where you are, with this game, Pokemon are on the Go and so are you, because the Pokemon are everywhere and they are just waiting to be battled and caught. Or even traded, you catch a Pokemon that you don’t want but someone else does, that’s okay because you can trade it with a fellow trainer.

And because it can be a hassle looking at your phone all the time, there is even a handy optional device called Pokemon Go Plus, designed by Niantic, the developers who were behind the augmented reality game, Ingress. The Pokemon Go Plus, a smartwatch if you will, is able to be worn around your wrist, connects to your phone via bluetooth, and can execute in-game actions. Oh and let’s not forget its LED will flash, as the device vibrates in a means to notify players about nearby Pokemon.

All I can say is these are some very exciting times and video gaming has truly evolved and for Nintendo, Splatoon, Super Mario Maker and Pokemon Go, are just further proof of how far this great company has evolved and have opened a doorway to a whole new world.

 

 

Till next time folks. Keep up the good fight and Keep on Gaming!

Ocarina of Time 3D, more like 2D:


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

Zelda title screenThe year was 1998 and the game masters that is Nintendo gave us their latest installment in the Zelda series, Ocarina of Time and what a game it was. The story, the pace and the adventure, it was a true game, a defining game that set the mold for how videogames could be and should be.

All these years later we still love this game, a love that was rewarded with an Ocarina of Time Master Quest released for the Gamecube back in 2002 and it also graced the Wii’s Virtual console in 2007 and the Wii U in 2015 and it would be so wrong to forget it also blew us away back in 2011 when Ocarina of Time 3D came out on the 3DS, in all its high def 3D graphics, as it was beautifully remastered, but what if I told you there was a 2D version in development? And no I’m not kidding, it is a thing and you can more about it from this very site, by the people who are making it, because unlike the other versions, this one is all fan made.

Oot 2D

This is their site: http://www.oot-2d.com/

And this is just one of their released videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEkaj0n0ecs#

Now you want a reason why this 2D version might of interest, well how about the fact that their video clips on youtube have received over 500,000 views and the game itself, still in development, has had over 100,000 downloads. That’s right you heard me, 100,000 downloads of people who just could not say no. Further more instead of continuing from a previous game that was in development by someone else, as many have already tried, they’ve started this from the very beginning, making everything from “scratch,” and recreating the Hyrule world of Ocarina, in complete 2D format, via use of sprites, which does give it a great A Link To The Past look.

Admitted by them, making it in the fashion they are doing, is a slower process they do maintain complete control over everything and whether it takes say three years before its finished, trust me it is worth the wait, because just from everything I have seen so far, it is completely amazing and there is such a big and great team behind this, working together to fix bugs, update and better some of the levels and settings they have already done such as the Great Deku tree. It’s really hard to believe they are only at 15% but, it is mind-blowingly amazing and when their next update comes out, it only comes with an online multiplayer mode too.

So if you can’t wait for Zelda U or Triforce Heroes, I insist you give this game a try and now, I leave you with a final link to their official screenshots. http://oot-2d.com/?p=6

Till next time folks. Keep up the good fight and Keep on Gaming!

Making it with Super Mario Maker


JH Longman profile pic 1Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

My name is Jack Longman, avid gamer since the 90’s, so with two decades of gaming under my belt and a background in journalism covering a range of subjects, it was only natural that one day I’d take the leap and write about something close to my heart, so with that, let’s get gaming.

Oh Mario, you have been with us since 1981, even though we didn’t know your name back then, but by 1985 when Super Mario Bros, you’ve always been our Mario. Looking back, I like to think that even Nintendo themselves had no idea of the true extent of the greatness they created, after all the Mario franchise is the highest grossing video game series of all time with over 210 million units sold, such an achievement. Now here we are, 30 years later of Super Mario and what better way to celebrate it with the release of Super Mario Maker to mark the 30th anniversary?

So just what is Super Mario Maker? Well for those of us who don’t already know, it is a creation tool video game that allows players to use the Wii U gamepad to not just create the levels from the Super Mario Bros, such as Super Mario Bros, Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros U, but to create your own levels too. Be they Zelda inspired, Splatoon inspired as I have already seen just from playing the game, but then you can upload them for the world to play them to. You provided you can beat the level you create. Yes that is correct, not only can you create, but you can share, but if you try to create the ultimate level of death, something I am very much likely to do, the only way you can put your fellow gamers to the test, is if you yourself can beat it because if you can’t, then you won’t be able to upload it. You’ll just have to settle for uploading 10 totally awesome levels that can be beaten, until of course you become allowed to upload.

As well as just creating levels and unlocking more “building styles” to use through-out gameplay, you can also manipulate enemies in the game and other elements. Such as building a tower of Goombas, putting hazards inside question blocks for that added danger element oh and try this on for size, the cannons you put into the game, yes they can fire in their normal fashion, or they can fire enemies, or coins, you know, whatever you prefer, death or leniency. It is the features mentioned and so many others the game provides that just make this game the great masterpiece it is. Sure some may argue it was a half-arsed attempt by Nintendo, throwing a half made game for the gamers to “develop themselves,” but there is an old rule, Give the people what they want. Who better than the people to know what they want? With Super Mario Maker, Nintendo gives the gamer pretty much all the tools necessary to create the Super Mario Bros game of their dreams and I’m sorry, but that is just awesome.

I can just picture the development team for Super Mario Bros NX using the Wii U gamepad, designing all new levels and worlds for their next game. Hell I can imagine them having used a tablet doing exactly this when they made the Wii and Wii U version, only to have one of them turn round and say: “You know, we could make a game out of this.” Then after a moment of consideration, whilst eye contact is maintained, the words that followed were: “Yes we can.” Now let us not forget about the fact that new elements are unlocked every fifteen minutes after a player spends at least that, creating their latest or first course and then there is the use of the Amiibos themselves. A means to unlock costume mushrooms to turn your Mario into your desired Amiibo, even Sheik made an appearance and let us not forget the 8-bit Mario amiibo, who unlocks a very special mushroom that makes you gigantic and gives your enemies a moustache, after all, moustaches are cool.

And you know what else that makes this game great? Besides the 10 and 100 Mario Challenges option, where you are given a finite number of lives and test your skill against the levels created by your peers, how about the fact you can also download their levels, just like they can download yours! To answer my question, it’s the fact how much love and recognition this game has received already, including winning some, I would say noteworthy accolades, which just add to the game itself and another feather to Nintendo’s cap. I’m not going to list their every win and nomination, but let’s talk about some of its victories from this year:

-It won E3’s 2015 Game Critics Award for Best Family/Social Game

-It won IGN’s Best of E3 2015 Award for Best Wii U Game

-And it also won Gamescon’s Award for Best Console Game Nintendo Wii and Best Social/Casual/Online Game

So it is with all of that in mind that I took up the pad, slide out the stylus and set to work making my very own level You Gonna Die, which in all honestly can be beaten rather easily. Not the longest of levels, nor the hardest, it was unbeatable but I couldn’t upload it for that very reason, it was unbeatable. So sadly I had to make it that little bit easier so now everyone has a good chance at beating it and I was surprised just how much time passed when I was playing this and how quick it passed too, Super Mario Maker I guess you can tick the box for captivating and fully engrossing. As far as Mario goes, this very well could be the ultimate Mario game because yes at the end of the day it may be a creative game, which features platformer gameplay, but the only limit on this game is imagination. This game can be any game you want it to be, every game you ever wanted it to be, or even the game you never wanted to play because the skill level needed to beat the impossible levels, is just insane.

And now, it is time for my list of Pros & Cons because I just can’t wait:

The PROS:

-The sheer level of creativity it possesses.

-How easy to use and understand the interface is.

-The amount of fun it can be to make your own level and have other people play it. Ever wanted to make your own game, or at the very least, your own level? Well now you can.

-8-bit Mario Amiibo and the mushroom it unlocks.

-All the possible Amiibo costumes, such as Toon Link with his Deku Leaf.

-It really is a game for everyone.

-It was brilliantly thought out and does the series it is born from, proud.

The CONS:

-Why the hell did we have to wait so long for a game like this, but at least we got it now.

-It is a shame that you can only play as a non 8-bit Mario. For a game born from Super Mario Bros, I had hoped Luigi, Peach or even Toad would also be playable in the same stunning detail Mario is in, as opposed to ordinary 8-bit.

9.7/10.0 building blocks is the very score this game achieves, I couldn’t even wait to write such a score, the game is good, I can’t deny it, just a shame I have to give it back, although I could just “take care” of Mike Scorpio and claim his copy. Excuse me while I have a Luigi Death stare moment, although while I still have you and have these eyes: BUY THE GAME NOW! This is a game you want in your life, so make it happen at once! You will not regret it at all.

20150911_171608

But as always, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are those of my own and that it is encouraged for you to make your own.

We Have SUPER MARIO MAKER!!!


20150911_171349

Ladies & Gentlemen, we at Miketendo64.com are proud to announce that we have just received our copy of Super Mario Maker. I managed to pick up a copy from Amazon and it arrived yesterday. So in the Wee early hours of the morning. I worked hard to film & edit our Miketendo64 Direct:- Super Mario Maker Special and it is now available to watch on Youtube or even in the video embeded in this post. We did the grand unboxing, a lookthrough of the artbook and a close up of the amiibo, not to mention a practice run of the actual game. I got home at 12:30am last night and before I knew it, the sun was coming up, time definitely flies when playing Super Mario Maker. The game really does ease you into to the creation of you own levels. You start off with very basic objects and items and the longer you play, the more you can unlock. Your dedication to this game will see you rewarded with more items and objects until you have the full arsenal at your disposal to make your very own, hardcore Super Mario Levels. Well enough said, see for yourself in our Miketendo64 Direct now.

Zelda U – It’s already here


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

I’m going to be honest, I’ve done it too, constantly going online hoping to find newly released Nintendo news regarding Zelda U, but it’s dawned on me, what if we already got it? What if the Zelda U we are waiting for, is meant to be the second new Zelda game we get on the Wii U and that Wind Waker HD wasn’t the first? After all Nintendo Land may be the title on the box but one of the eight attractions is Entitled: Legend of Zelda Battle Quest. What if this was the secret wink Nintendo thought only themselves would know about, as this is a great way of giving us two Zelda games without us ever knowing about it?

Sure it is a crazy concept, but have you not met Nintendo? they monopolize on the crazy and I honestly wouldn’t put this pass them until they themselves come out and say for certain No! “No this wasn’t the first Zelda U game.” So until then, why not play with that idea a little bit, that Battle Quest is a Zelda title? Why try to skip over it and sweep it under the rug with the Zelda CD-I games, trying to fool ourselves that they don’t exist and serve no use to the actual series whatsoever? Would you treat Hyrule Warriors the same way? No because is a great game and so many before playing it, were saying how they felt it was going to be a let down and drag the Zelda franchise down a peg or two, instead it was well loved and is now being released on the 3DS as Hyrule Warriors Legends. And you know what, Zelda Battle Quest is a good game, even without a story and why does it not need a story, because it’s Zelda, we already know the story.

I’ll admit, Battle Quest is a non-canon game. Yes it may not be the largest game in the world as it’s a mini-game within a game, made up of nine levels and five bonus levels.  And sure the main hero isn’t even Link, but your Mii and if joined by friends, their Miis, all in the garb of the Hero, going from green, blue, red and purple, well that’s Four Swords, if one of them decided to ditch the sword and charge into battle with a bow and an endless supply of arrows. Plus it may not have Princess Zelda, but it does have the Triforce, Boss Battle and final Boss Battle against Ganon in beast form and the Master Sword. It even has a Master quest mode, what more could you ask for.

But bowing down to Logic, it may not be a REAL Legend of Zelda game, but you know what? With its new and interesting style, which as I have said before, may have actually inspired Woolly, it’s a pretty good go at a game, shame there wasn’t more it. And so what if Zelda U is still in development and now not looking to even have its name revealed until next year, it is going to be a game that is more than worth the wait and it’s not like we haven’t had other games to play in the time being. We do have Wind Waker, we do have Hyrule Warriors and we have Battle Quest, so that’s plenty of options to get your Wii U Zelda fix for the time being, even if it is just to sustain you until October, because then Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes is out, ready to keep us busy until Zelda U. Unless of course you are like me and don’t have a 3DS, well then I guess it is time we brought one. After all A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina HD and Majora’s Mask, there is plenty of choice right there and don’t forget the eshop has other Zelda titles available too.

So while I leave you with that, I am off to go get my sewn Link on because I have the desire to get woolly a little more and you know what, I might just write a review about it. Who am I kidding, of course I am?

Till next time folks. Keep up the good fight and Keep on Gaming!

Mario Kart Rage – It’s Real


Written  by:  J.H.  Longman

Inmario rage all my years of gaming, I have never known a gaming series that has been able to successfully get under my skin with every installment that I’ve played. When I was young much younger than I am now, I’ll be honest, there were quite a few games that made me want to leap up and turn the Nintendo off. There was no way I was going to let my siblings slay me one more time in Turok, Smash or Wave Race.

But then there was Mario Kart 64, my true nemesis. No matter how much I played it, all the practice in the world meant nothing because every friendly race with my siblings would end the same way, me going into a Major Rager, hulking out as a few curse words would pass lips and I’d have full blown temper tantrums. The only thing that stopped me putting the remote through the TV was the desire to keep playing and poor aim on the times I did actually throw it. TV’s were much smaller then, wouldn’t have that problem now and as much as I would love to think that I have matured, evolved, I haven’t.

Mario Kart still successfully makes me see red and want to destroy everything, but the hissy fits Mario Kart Wii put me into, is nothing compared to Mario Kart 8. It’s a good thing there is such a thing as online play because trust me, you wouldn’t want to be seated next to me when I am effing and blinding and about ready to start throwing my weight around. If that’s not enough of a picture painted for you, how’s this, imagine that loud mouth rowdy drunk at the bar who wants to take everyone on, that’s me after the fifth blue shell. Hell that’s me after the second blue shell. I’m like Samuel L Jackson from Snakes on a Plane. “I’ve had it with these mother effing babies with their mother effing shells!” But the good news is, I’m not the only one who gets like this. (Yeah that means I’m normal!)

Turns out quite a number of people act out the way I do, including my brother who just years previously, would scold me for my unsporting behaviour, but now he knows the true struggle I have faced all these years. I don’t mean to be a terrible gamer, especially when Kart is involved, it’s just the game is great at bring that side out on people. As Road Rage effect those stuck in traffic and out on the road, Mario Kart Rage is waiting for you in your very household just as soon as you put the disc in and are good to go. Before it used to be Monopoly that was the game that destroyed families, but move over Monopoly because Mario Kart wishes to steal your crown but at least you know now that you are not alone. When your partner is stood opposite, wondering what sort of rage monster they are with, just know there are others suffering your plight, whose relationship is almost as doomed as yours and that there is a support group just waiting to accept you with open arms. Make sure you join your local MKRA today!

Now because I’m no Doctor, I can’t just go out and officially declare such an ailment, so I’ll leave that to a Doctor we all know who is great at battling viruses, Doctor Mario to do such a thing with me. Join me next week when Doctors Mario and Luigi join me on the couch for an interview, where we will talk about Mario Kart Rage and so much more, including his move into the pop world and I suppose Luigi can have a word or two here and there, when we’re not also talking about their latest joined adventure.

See you next week and until then, try not to kill your partner when playing MK8 together, or shelling me when I’m online, you won’t like me when I’m angry.

Pikmin 4 Confirmed & Super Mario Galaxy 3 A Possibility but neither will be coming to Wii U!


In a recent interview with Eurogamer.net, Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that Pikmin 4 is in development and better yet is near completion. He says that the teams behind the development of the Pikmin games are always developing a new Pikmin game but Shigeru has stated that it will not be coming to Wii U however he did not confirm whether it would be coming to the NX or “‘new”‘ 3DS. Miyamoto has also said that Super Mario Galaxy 3 is a possibility but is not a definite as a lot more gamers prefer the 2D Mario Scrollers as to the 3D open levels. The evidence was apparent in the sales between New Super Mario Bros. Wii which had sold 29.3 million copies and Super Mario Galaxy’s 12.5 million and Galaxy 2’s meagre 7.4 million.

Nintendo A History! Airs Monday 7th September on Youtube!


#Nintendo #NintendoTheHistory @Zach_Sebijin @Miketendo64 @Youtube

A brand new webseries all about Nintendo will be available to view on Youtube tomorrow at 5:00 PM EST. “Nintendo the History” is a mixture of comedy, variety and education that delves into the History of Nintendo itself from the very first trading cards to the Videogame conglomerate that it is today. The series is the brainchild of Zachary Snyder, Damien Floyd, Andy Bundy & Mike Brothers and aims to be educating yet extremely fun. I for one had the opportunity to interview Zachary when the series was entering production and am really looking forward to seeing his project come into fruition. You can check out the interview via this link or by clicking on the “An Interview With… Zachary Snyder” in the menu above. I will definitely be watching the first episode on Youtube and I sincerely hope that you guys do to as I am sure it will be informative and entertaining to all Nintendo fans.
