PureNintendo Let’s Play: Super Mario 64 – Episode 1: Bragging Rights
PureNintendo.com kicks off their newest Let’s Play series with the all time classic, Super Mario 64. The premiere title for the Nintendo 64 is the company’s first real venture into the realm of 3D platforming.
Unlike the Super Metroid Series, we will be completing 100% of Super Mario 64; that means we will be grabbing all 120 stars. Today’s episode has Matt Paxton behind the sticks, with additional commentary by Trevor Gould.
You can expect a new episode of this Let’s Play every Tuesday and Friday at 12PM EDT/ 3PM PDT until we nab every star and defeat Bowser once and for all.
Levels covered: Bomb-omb Battlefield, Whomp’s Fortress, Peach’s Secret Slide, Tower of the Wing Cap.
Super Mario 64 was released in Japan on June 23, 1996, the United States on September 26, 1996, and the EU on March 1, 1997.
Talk Box: Here is where we put links to subjects we cover in our Let’s Plays. That way, you won’t have to pause the video to look up content.
There are actually 15 “Castle’s Secret Stars”
Sorry, I couldn’t find anything to either support or deny Trevor’s claim that the paintings were used as a memory management workaround. However, the the paintings in the castle do serve as a good 3D hub to allow the player to explore the castle freely, as well as hone their platforming skills free from threats.
The More You Know is a PSA series. The GI Joe phrase is, “…and knowing is half the battle.”
