Not even managed to hit 100 on that one yet Laughing it was......

I got like 250 odd on that mini-game. I entered a zen-like state of mind where my mind was empty and all I was focused on was rhythmically tapping the jump button. Once I started thinking too much about what I was doing, I ended up messing up. I recommend some meditation before trying - maybe you should visit a monk atop a mountain, clear you mind, forget about your worldly concerns. All that exists is the rope. Nothing more.

I did it before the final boss to get it out of the way!  And used 'easy mode' on the volleyball one.  I got up to 51 playing normally, so reckon I would have done it eventually, but I might have thrown a joycon through the telly first.

Related: I think I've decided that Bubblaine is my least favourite kingdom. Love the premise, but water kingdoms just don't do it for me, and the stuff underwater is horrid.

Not a chance I'm trying for any more on them challenges, people already have such high scores I can't fathom, well up for trying to improve my time on the Koopa Races though.

Is it weird that one of the things I'm most looking forward to this Christmas is seeing Drunka and Jim's thoughts on this? Neutral

Not at all sir, I am too. One of the great things about being a member of a gaming community. Smile

Yeah I'm looking forward to it as well, when I've been in skype calls with the drunken one and some general GoTY chat has popped up it's been tough to not go into any depth on SMO.

I held it in my hands today when I put all the presents under the tree. Finally, something good to play on Switch instead of more bloody Monster Hunter! It has been my never-failing dream.

I only just unwrapped it! Will probably play when the family go to bed tonight so I can savour my first go.

Thoughts then, Drunka? I'd have thought you'd have been all over this since Christmas!

As I've been working some crazy hours, and I didn't start playing on Christmas day until everyone else went to bed, I've not played anywhere near as much as I'd have liked. I'm on around 70 moons and I've just unlocked my fifth kingdom (though I've only put in the briefest of appearances at the opening one and the prehistoric one).

I've been avoiding most of the thread still, but I'll say this: So far this is everything I dreamed it would be and more.

Best. Christmas. Ever.

That is absolutely grand to hear. Grin

Zero to change his location to '1 Wrong House, Wrongville, Wrongland WR0 0NG'. Tongue

The WR post code area is Worcester. That's too far south.

Did you spend ages in the Sand Kingdom, Drunka? That was the first kingdom that I properly sunk my teeth into.

Yep, ran around for ages getting moons and coins, unlocking all the outfits and so on.

I'm thinking I might have enjoyed SMO even more had I done that first up, rather than leaving it until later on.

I haven't quite 100%ed any kingdoms yet, but I have ran around and done as much as I can see with just running around in each one I've found.

I just did the very dramatic stretch of the game
Spoiler:
 

Then I found that bloody Jump Rope game. Took me a while to figure how to even play, I assumed I'd have to talk to someone, but I managed to stumble in and get a score of like 4. I took a little peak at the scoreboard, saw people like Mas hovering at 6, saw the dude saying "I wonder if you can get 30" and thought ah yes, that'll be the moon then. Got my 30, took another look at the scoreboard . . .

So that's gonna take up an obscene amount of my precious limited time on this Earth, then.

Yeah I had the same approach to staying in a Kingdom until I had done all I could, I only later changed that when I fancied progressing the story. I should get back to the post game stuff now but there's other games that need playing too.

Damn you Switch! DAMN YOU! I'll say it again: I don't know how you multiplat boys do it, I don't have time to play the games I want to play on one machine!  (Or two machines as it was last year.)

That is a brilliant stretch of game though.  SMO mixes linearity and exploration really well, allowing for set-pieces like all of that alongside the freedom lacking from the last five 3D Marios.

Easy just view them like DVDs / Blu Rays / UHDs and play the ones you want regardless of system.

I'm confused. Eh? I don't have time for all the good Switch games I want to play.  Playing all the good games I want to play regardless of system would require fifty-hour days!
