If there's anyone in the early game thinking that this is all a bit easy, don't worry, some of the post-credit stuff is ridiculous.

 

I'm currently tearing my hair out on the (post-credits spoiler)

Spoiler

Dark Side of the Moon 

Spoiler

Hatless challenge door with all the bullet bills. Fucking absurd! And that's just for the main moon; I can see where the second one is, and I can honestly say I don't think I will ever get it, unless there's some trick to it I'm not seeing.

This was definitely one of the most enjoyable and satisfying moons to get. Also is that classic Mario thing of feeling impossible at first but once you've managed it, you realise it's actually really easy!

 

 

Get the key, drop down to the platform below and turn around as another Giant Bullet Bill crashes through the wall. There are a row of pillars in a straight line all the way back. Basically you want to do a long jump between every pillar, with a slight run when you land on each to maintain momentum and leap at the right time. You'll keep dying until you get the rhythm, at which point it's a really fun little thing.

 

Double spoiler, which is the MOST IMPORTANT thing to remember, and meant I actually had to do it twice:
 

 

 
When you arrive on the other side, you want the GBB to break the wall in front of you. As it tracks you, don't do what I first did and run over to the side to avoid it. because it will crash into a bit of the wall that doesn't break. You'll laugh at your stupidity.


 

Just duck in the middle of the wall and let it sail over your head and reveal your lunar prize for dexterity in the face of adversity.

I'm reluctant to progress negate I don't want it to end. Spent yesterday mostly scouring old worlds for moons. Good to hear there's plenty of end game content. 

 

Currently in the Luncheon Kingdom which seems like a great world. 

 

 

 

Also does anyone else feel like paying for clues is cheating?

 

 

edit: I intermittently upload things to YouTube, mostly to share on here. I get hardly any views normally but I made one for how to do the Caged Gold moon and have got 1500 views in 3 days which is probably more than every other video I’ve got, combined. Ha. Shame Nintendo don’t let you monetise without going through the rigmarole of applying for their program (and then I think they take a chunk of everything on the channel, even if it’s non Nintendo! Hands off off my 7 cents, Reggie).

Been mucking around in New Donk City for a few hours. What a level. It's like the Sunshine hub but with ten times the content. I just kept on finding doorways to new bits. I've scoured every inch of the place and I still only have like half the moons!

 

Particularly fond of (not really a spoiler):

 

Spoiler

Getting the moped up to the rooftop parking spots. Great challenge.

 

Also: Super Mario Bros 1-1 is in there. Of course it is.

Just got both moons in that one today!

 

Spoiler

You just gotta successively longjump across the blocks along the bottom.

390 moons deep and can't see myself stopping anytime soon. Not quite sure that it tops the Galaxy games for me, personally because I prefer the platforming in those, but it is outstanding and magical and everything else that has been said a million times already. I adore it.

I'm still pretty early doors in this game, but I just had an unexpected fight with

Spoiler

Bowser.

 

So unexpected in fact, that I turned up dressed in a swimsuit and diving mask.

 

Thank god the Odyssey was close by.  I nipped in and changed into my pants and top hat.  Ready to fuck him right off :angry:

You're exactly right! When I first attempted it, I was all like waaasjdhfjfirk how is this even possible???!!!

 

But once I'd calmed my tits and focused on what I was doing, it's not actually that bad. 

 

This game is so good.

I try to do as much as I can on my own or with the parrot but I've paid for a few clues. When you're down to like 80/84 moons and the only clue the parrot give you is 'timed challenge number 1' it stops being fun to keep going over and over the level looking for the needle in the haystack. There were a couple in the seaside kingdom I don't think I'd ever have got without them being marked on my map.

I found the luncheon kingdom better than i was expecting. However, this kingdom also had the two hardest moons for me

the obstacle course one and the one where you navigate through the lava jumping across etc. Dunno why that bit too so long though, i just kept missing the last bit of lava to jump across the gap

 

Then i was pretty surprised with the section after this with the

dragon?! It kinda looked like skyrim that stage. It's kinda bizarre that nintendo have taken a realistic approach with certain things

 

In any case that unlocked the next kingdom which has been pretty good, especially the new character capture which is possibly my favorite.

It’s a direct homage to Dark Souls:

lulz, I was shocked that they made a sprite of every outfit for the 2d bits and then it occurred to me that making the outfits in the first place probably took a lot more time and effort.

 

The 2D outfits are great. The 2D sections are great.

 

They've basically ripped off Sideway: New York and adapted Galaxy's 3D and 2D mashup sections to fit that wall platforming theme, but witnessing old 2D Mario in HD with all those sprite representations of costumes and their playful nature does make them feel a bit Mario Maker too. Which is obviously a very good thing.

I was REALLY hoping the 2D sections would utilise playstyles from various Mario games. When I'd heard that what we'd seen pre-release hardly scratched the surface I thought that's what they must have meant. I was a little disappointed that it was just all original SMB style.I  would have loved some SMB3 and World bits thrown in there.

Well after a six hour go on this (the first game to make me do that since BotW, Nintendo eh!) I can see this usurping Zelda as my GOTY. The movement, from the off, is intuitive, accurate and a delight. Level design is out of this world, the design and seeming scope for exploration (I'm finding myself exploring every single nook and cranny) untouchable. 

 

Pure gaming glee that makes me feel 10 again. Fair fucks Nintendo, you are slaying this year.

Finally reached the credits with 182 moons collected after, I'm guessing, 25 hours or so on the clock. From a brief dabble post credits it seems that I have an awful lot more game to play so wow, just wow.,

 

There's not much I can add that's not been said already but this is Nintendo at their very best, their most confident, and their most dazzlingly brilliant.  I can't remember a game that was so stuffed with invention, such brilliant game play mechanics, and which has made me smile in amazement quite so often. 

 

i thought BOTW was a no brainer for Game Of The Year but, for me, Odyssey  takes that accolade with a little room to spare. Fuck alone knows how they are going to top these two next year but I very much look forward to seeing them try

 

Hats off Nintendo.
