Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Paper-Mario-Sticker-Star

I’ve had a Nintendo 3DS for a while and lately I’ve actually played on it more than my other consoles, most likely because it’s just easy to pick up and play. About a month ago I purchased Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

Surprisingly, I actually finished the game. This has been a rare thing over the past few years. Often, I purchase a game and take my time working on it. Even Mass Effect 3, which I was anticipating for some time and pre-ordered, was a game that I spent several months playing off-and-on before I finished it.

A Gamer’s Opinion of New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS)

Standard

Every now and then I’ll mention a game in this blog. I have no intention of regularly posting game reviews. For one, I don’t play enough games (or the same ones often enough) to make it a habit to discuss games very often. Yet, every once in a while I have an opinion about a game that I think is worth sharing with my audience (however small and infrequent it may be).

Based on the content posted here my assumption is that most visitors are geeks. These are probably people that like fiddling around with technology and many of you play at least some video games.

Last week I received a copy of New Super Mario Bros 2 for 3DS, which I bought from Amazon. I’ve had a 3DS for a little while and every now and then I take the time to play a game or two. Much of the reason I still enjoy playing Nintendo games is the sense of nostalgia the games, especially the Mario games, create.

Quick Coins in Super Paper Mario

Standard

In a post of Super Paper Mario Wii Cheats one user, Overlord Goomba, posted a tip for making a lot of coins in a relatively short amount of time. The trick involves using a Catch Card SP to capture an Amazy Dayzee and then sell it at the card shop. Catch Card SPs usually cost 100 coins in the Flopside card shop and the Amazy Dayzee card can be sold in either card shop for 300 coins. This trick can be used to quickly max out one’s coins (and still have more cards in reserve).

Unfortunately, this trick requires access to level 5-2 and Flopside, so it’s not something that can be done early in the game.

Once you have at least one catch card (I’d recommend having two for the first trip) you’ll need to head to 5-2 and move through the star doors until you reach the door with the Yoshi statue. Just after the gap with the floating platform, but before the Yoshi statue, you’ll find an Amazy Dayzee in 3-D mode. As soon as you flip, just use the catch card.
