The first oddity in or Museum of the Weird && Freaking Strange... I am quite sure that I lost this Penguin Race, but it was counted as a win. On this recording of the enigmatic race, you can click the ⚙ and change the playback speed to 0.25x to see for yourself. What forces are at work here? The Big Penguin Race Wikipedia entry seems to make no mention of such... irregularities.......

But, It happened. According to first-hand interviews conducted by Robert Tralins

  • The sunset beach haunted hotel level w cool Boos and secret passages
  • Noki Bay (?) pretty vertical level with crazy high-up platforming
  • Theme park level
  • Npcs in levels are epic.. There was a cool hard nighttime Pianta village level i wanna see again
  • Sw33t hub world
  • Piantas are rlly cute
  • Colorful yoshis

Ive been getting some 100-coin stars while im off-stream and the Jolly Roger Bay one is kind of brutal lowkey!! On my first try, when I hit the blue coin switch (which makes a handful of blue coins appear for a limited time, and then theyre gone and you can't try again w/o leaving and restarting the level), i wasnt sure where the coins were goign to spawn, and I ended up running the wrong way and missing one of them before time ran out. I figured I would still be able to scrounge up 100 coins if I collect everything else on the level, even having missed that one blue coin (worth 5). I ended up with 99 and looked it up and omg.. There are only exactly 104 coins on Jolly Roger Bay, so if you miss one of the blue coins, you're outta luck!! Savage

I had to restart & do it over... But you know we got it!!! Progress report:

Alright... Im not going to be toxic abt this.


Dont worry zoomers.. If you prefer playing this 3d platformer using 4-direction digital controls, just like on the DS, they made it support the D-pad for some reason. Who am I to tell you which is the better way to play. Sorry that the Mario characters' bodies won't creepily morph into one another too.

the first thing i noticed was different in mario 64 was that if mario gets far enough away from the "camera" it switches to his low-detail model. but something about the way the camera zooms out in the fight with king bob-omb makes it happen when the camera is way closer so you can really see that crappy model. i love stuff like that

Suuuper enjoying the fludd-less challenge courses in Sunshine. Feeling the awe and fear when the camera first zooms out showing the epic course, going Ohhh shiittttt, and then dialing it in, trying to keep it together, and exploding with happiness when i finally reach the Shine

As soon as I dropped into Bianco Hills I made a beeline for the top of the windmill because I thought Petey Pirhana was the first shine.

There's a dancing Pianta at the top who says something like "Are you sure you're supposed to be here already?" which I thought was pretty funny.

Galaxy's cool and, incredibly, they remapped the waggle spin to a button instead of just getting the rom and an old version of project 64 from emuparadise like they did with mario64
