☆☆★★★ Behemoth was the most disappointing final boss I've ever fought. A boring fight overall.

Yeah, it has a bit too much "grinding" for my liking as well. But I'm the kind of guy who enjoys replaying the Arena modes in Kirby games, so it's not that bad. Okay, these are far from traditional Kirby boss battles, but they are close enough I guess.

And I like the fanservice so far. There are gear inspired by Dark Matter, Wham Bam Rock, Magolor, Drawcia, etc, which is very nice to see.

Playtonic has been hinting at a Diddy Kong Racing clone for their next project. I would love that. A racing game would seem like it would be much easier to make, too.

You've been playing Super Princess Peach. That is one of the few Mario games that I have not played. How is it?

I have mixed feelings on Yooka-Laylee, overall. The game's quality simply is very inconsistent throughout the title. The levels are all over the place - more on the negative side of design - and challenges are either as simple as walking up to the Pagie, collecting a billion challenging to find things, or pure trial and error. Unity, the engine that runs the game, clearly has issues that hold Yooka-Laylee back. The bosses are a real mess, too. Don't get me started on the minigames...

Nonetheless, I still had a decent time with it. It evokes strong emotions of nostalgia as someone who used to play Banjo-Kazooie nonstop back in the day. Exploring is fun, and so is collecting new abilities to open additional paths. Except one of the abilities basically breaks the game. But once you get past these small bullet points of positives, the game still just isn't at the level of Rare's titles from the 90s.

It is difficult to recommend. There is just so much wrong. Hopefully other developers see that new 3D platformers are in demand and we get something better out the door. I do look forward to future projects from Playtonic.

So... yeah.

Well, it depends on many things, but overall... It's not as bad as Pokémon Picross, but it's somewhat similar.

I've actually tried to fight him but got my ass whipped, that combination of his ultimate and the tentacle hit is just too hard to dodge, I'll be leveling them up to 40-45 before trying it again. Thanks to Youtube I found out he has 2 phases, great, even listening to soundtracks spoils everything haha.

Yup, it sure can be. For the 4th boss (Casio Night Zone), I was able to use the ground pound to defeat Dr. Robotnik/Eggman.

Some of the bosses are really tricky once you run out of eggs, but others generate enemies you can eat and turn into eggs or are easy to ground pound. I saw that report on that website too, but once I was able to damage the 4th boss, I pressed on.

HarmoKnight is... just okay. There is a bit more variety than the trailers and demo would imply, but in general it's kinda repetitive. I would recommend Tadpole Treble or Rhythm Thief over HarmoKnight.

Yeah the guy at my local game store said that too, or it might've fallen down at the store. I never use Amiibo for those sort of things cause they usually break the game. In Mario Party Star Rush I used my Luigi Amiibo once, that round ended at 22 Stars...I usually get around 10. Just because he has some special things for having the gold medal from Mario Party 10. The locations were very boring and uninspiring that's true, Dream Team did a better job there. I guess just the mixture of Paper and Original was nice and I really liked the battle system and the Paper Craft Battles. The problem for me with Dream Team was that it took very long until I got into it and wanted to continue playing. Technically the two aren't that bad, but it's typical that when one of the older versions (in this case BIS) is a peak, it's very hard to stay at that point or get even higher. Plus it really didn't help that most of the developers were new to the series when the 3DS came. For whatever reason I just thought about the Paper Mario franchise in general, as Color Splash was 20 times better than Sticker Star. I guess people who didn't play the DS Versions of M&L will love the 3DS Version, because they've got nothing to compare it to. It's the same discussion I have with friends when discussing Animal Crossing, all of my friends started with Wild World and claim it's one of the best, while I say Wild World is the worst of them all from a gaming stand point, because I started with GC and WW is a major downgrade to that. But hey, it really just depends on the players

No no, I take very good care of my video games, they always are being put back into their box when I don't play them. It's a weird glitch that my cartridge seems to be having, just bad luck when I bought that one. It's okay though. Yeah BIS is definitely the peak of the series and then it just went 'This is okay'. But I gotta admit, Paper Jam is better than Dream Team Bros.

Going for that Final Bowser X fight Marathon? Good luck with that I was around Level 50, but for whatever reason my Game starts glitching when I reach Bowser X and all the graphics look different, there's no Shadow and no real Bowser anymore, that's why I gave up on that, as it was plain impossible see anything. And I'm not trading it in for a new game neither, as it took quite some time to get there and I won't redo that, as much as I love Bowser's Inside Story (Still think it's the best of the entire Series!)

The problem is how slow you finish the race with constant rubberbanding AI. I feel the RB is the worst on this difficulty and sometimes they just boost past you at the finish line.

Ya it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Palladium and Platinum gave me the most trouble.

Yup! I was able to get 1st place in most of the cups when I unlocked it. I made sure to leave a couple subsonic cups behind to see how they compare with the hardest mode after I finish it.

And finally, the strategy itself:
*Additional consideration: You have 35 turns to beat all 7 bosses, I got to Dark Star X with 26 turns left, then I got to Bowser X with 20 turns left.

*Like I said, use Mighty Meteors in previous battles to rack up items.

*Equipment I used: A-OK Wear, DX POWE Boots, Deluxe HP Socks (HP Socks for Luigi since there's only one of the former).

*Badges I used: Bro Badge + Excellent!! Badge. This is because with Mighty Meteor, you almost never get Syrups, essential for SP recovery, and with this combo, you can restore all of them. Just be aware to only pull off Excellents or else the bro gauge will empty after every time you fail to do an Excellent.

*Each bro had like 85-90 SP, so I could use Specials on each battle, by the time I reached Dark Star X, I needed to replenish my SPs, not so much my HP since I managed to avoid damage as much as possible. I already mentioned the best way to deal with DSX, but I didn't mention, use Snack Basket to deal with the enemies he spawns to KO both at the same time and proceed quickly to the DSX pummeling.

*If you manage to get to Bowser X, the first thing you might want to do is to heal/replenish SP and BE PREPARED TO ENDURE! Trust me, with his 7,155HP (10,732HP if you're using the Challenge Medal accesory) and constant Special Attack sucking, it took me like 15 minutes or so to finish this battle.

I don't think I'm forgetting anything, that's all I can remember.

So good luck whenever you attempt what I consider the hardest part of the first three Mario & Luigi games.
Having fun is more fun than not having fun.
