The 'Shroom:Issue XVI
Tips, Secrets, Hints, and Cheats for Mario's games!
The start of Mario RPGs was released in 1996; it was very popular, lots of people liked it, it's being released on the Virtual Console in Japan, blah blah blah... Okay, let's just cut right to the chase and skip the boring history lesson. I'm going to tell you how to get an infinite amount of coins.
When you are heading towards Rosa town, enter the area where there's a load of Shy Guys by treasure boxes. Go to the bottom-right exit. Hit the box next to the door to receive many coins, but do not completely empty it. Go back through the exit, and reenter the exit once more; keep hitting the box as I mentioned before, without draining it of coins. Repeat
I've only recently bought this game, and already it's one of my favorite games. This game is also notable for revolutionizing the style of game sprites. Okay, now that I've bragged with how epicly awesome this game is, I'll tell you today's tip. So, you're fighting Cackletta for the first time and you're having trouble grilling her cheese, right? Then, it must be when she splits into three different entities. Right? RIGHT?! HAH! I though so... anyway, when she's cloned herself to have two duplicates, it's actually quite easy to tell the real Cackletta apart from the bologna cronies. When she attacks, one clone will raise her right arm, another will lift her left arm, and the third will lift both arms. Attack the Cackletta that raises both hands to damage her. Then, just keep doing so until the old hag disintegrates!
Did you know that you can infinitely stay in a 3D flip? Well, all you have to do is get Mario's catch card from the bottom of Flopside's Pit of 100 Trials. Good luck beating Shadoo though...
There's not one thing that sucks about this game, in my opinion. It's one of the greatest Mario games ever. The graphics are also pretty awesome. Wait, what am I talking about? This isn't the Review section!
Well, as you may or may not know, this game is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. Having played the game almost thirty times, I've probably found close to everything hidden in the game. One of my favorite secrets of the game is the NES reference in the game. This can only be performed only once in the entire game. When in the X-Naut Fortress, head for the ventilator shaft. Drop through the vents into the dressing room (where you played as Peach earlier). When you open the curtain...
...HOLY CRAP! You're in 8-bit! :O It doesn't last when you leave the room though, so be sure to get the best out of it while you can.
Well, I hope you enjoyed RPG Month!
Hello, it's a RAPstar with some breaking news! There's an sentence or two I'd missed placing in for a slot!! If you read the previous issue XV at my very section, and assumed there's no saving spots at all... I myself and the readers got themselves wrong!! ;_; Apparently during the game, you have to get some kind of Koopa Lock or something... by the comments in MFGG I just recently read. OMG, I didn't played the game too hard! Or too far long in the raid house!! I seriously need to get over the gaming life with fan games once more, or little over the top. It's play, compare, correction, and most importantly reviewing the games, similar to the other section of course. (shifts)
Hey morsels, Hooky here just to know you guys if you seriously didn't look hard enough to compare Ryan's reviews and the other guy's review, he's talking about InfectedShroom (talk)'s recent official reviews dude! Get it?! Fan game review for this little koopaling, and “ISyou” with his official game review, if you seriously know what I mean so far. Hmph, you better remember this! Next time I see you, you better get ready for your knowledge of this wiki, although I still despise Mario... at least Ryan's happy about that type of gaming. If he's happy, I'm happy, rawr... I don't completely want to dedicate myself to him... or the other series he has composed or something...
Ryan here again, so guys... if your new here to read this piece of enlargement, read it! If not, skip it. Tongue Unless you wanna read this funny part of the writing, (sumgs) New user! Or visitor! ER, whatever!! If this is your first time to come and arrive in this section, I say you this: The entertainment section opens up into new content with new types of entertainment form during the internet itself, without harming those very pieces. ...But there's more of the point to it! If you guys know Hooktail as she appeared earlier, from PM2 of course, she's my dragon now. Wink A female dragon with me... (shifts) Later on, she assists me in this section anyway, mainly on the video reviews... Tongue
In this issue, I'd been experimenting some new forms of Mario entertainment for the wiki to seriously cheer up, instead of the games and maybe the vids. Maybe I should slot in new things, if they fit well; I might open up new things and maybe retire the older forms of entertainment I guess. ...But, that's all up to the material and you guys reading it. So... here goes nothing... I hope not(!)

- Mario Awards II voting starts at three o'clock sharp tomorrow! Userpedia Awards (10) will also be included. Like last year passer-by guests and thus anyone with an internet connection and email are allowed to vote, and the more voters, the bigger the results and the more excitement on 8/8/08, so direct your friends to MarioWiki:Anniversary as well!
- A user has recently reflected upon his experience here and what it may hold in the future. It was moved to the forum to not create any conflict here, but you might want to take a look anyways.
Once again, quite a few sections are late. The Fake News will probably be released in
Space Year 3042Z a few days. The Beta Elements will also probably released somewhere around Sunday or Saturday. Aw crap.
The 'Shroom now feature two new writers, Garlic Man (talk) now host a section called "Character Comparison", You have three seconds to guess what it's about. Tucayo (talk) is the other new guy, and he made quite a fun Crossword (Crossword which I quite conveniently forgot o post the clues of, eh.) as well as a game where you have to guess from what Image some picture come from.
Unfortunately, Stooben Rooben (talk) took an hiatus from the wiki because of personal reasons, and handed over the Fake News to Xzelion (talk), who in turn had to gives up his "Quiz" section. If anyone is interested in doing both or one of the above sections up until Stooben Rooben (or 3Dejong) return, please contact me.
User favorite & Sysop nomineehas gone missing. It is speculated that who took over the Fake News after Stooben Rooben disappeared may be involved somehow. A few days before Stooben Rooben's disappearance, an eye witness heard Xzelion talking to others about the fact he'd like to take over Fake News again.
Fake News: What did you hear Xzelion say?
: He said simply that he'd like to take over the Fake News again, and that he'd talk to Stooben Rooben about a possible regime change.
Fake News: Did he say anything about what would happen if Stooben Rooben declined the offer?
: Yes, he said his frozen trout would be ready.
Taco Good has said that if anyone find Stooben Rooben that a reward would be given out, they said that all their food would be sold for 200 Pennies. Taco Good has been the main supply of Tex-Mex food for years the owner Ocat Oneub is a family man hes the father of three Burritos & two hard shell tacos. He had this to say about the reward:
Fake News: What prompted you to do this? Food for 200 Pennies just for finding this one user is kinda outrageous wouldn't you say?
: Stooben Rooben is a good & loyal customer without him here, our sales have dipped over 50%.
Fake News: How'd you come up with that number?
: 50 is my favorite number, and please if you find Stooben Rooben, come by and get your food for 99 Pennies.
Fake News: Whoa, 99 Pennies? Whats that like 3 Dollars?

Who is the best Character in Mario Kart Wii, to make they're first Spin - Off Appearance?
So...today, the game is....Paper Mario DS!
(I think they already released that!)
Oh. Well, then. It's gonna be Super Smash Bros. DS
Game: Super Smash Bros. DS Genre: Fighting Platform: DS
I think you know how Smash Bros. works. No, this is NOT a hoax. You touch your character to jump, draw a line to punch, draw a line while holding L or R for a special move, and so on.
Look! I even have a screenshot of it!
What? That's just a pic from Smash Bros. Dojo with a crappy DS drawn with it? Oh. Sorry.
[Door breaks down]
No. NOT AGAIN! Seriously, I do not want to get sued again.

By: Stumpers Fake News, Travel Guide -- Excess Express
Welcome to another 'Shroom Travel Guide! Last time, we revealed the chilled, subtle wonder of Joke's End. Unfortunately, we received several complains from cold readers as a response, so this time we're covering the Excess Express.
This gloriously extravegant train travels from Rogueport to Poshley Heights over the course of three days. Of course, who would take a train such as the Excess Express for the destination? The train ride itself is what draws people from all over the nation. That, and the possibility of seeing the beautiful engine. One Lakitu has not moved from his spot staring at the engine at the Rogueport Station. Ever. He claims to have, but he hasn't. It's lies.
Regardless, every inch of the train is well-planned and detailed. In addition to the posh bedrooms, there is a restaurant run by a
The Excess Express includes an fully stocked store, full of Mushrooms and other items one would need on a trip. But bring your own toothbrush, they do not sell them. Actually, don't. There are no bathrooms either. In fact, while visiting Rogueport and its surrounding areas, you should know that the only bathroom is located in the Glitz Pit minor league locker rooms or in Princess Peach's old room on the Moon, a minor inconvenience.
Other considerations for your trip: be careful of Smorg, the Shadow Sirens, Doopliss disguised as Zip T., and the waitress. Her slap is painful. Reserve tickets from Frankie the mob boss early, because they are in high demand. This may or may not be caused by a certain slightly plump Toad who continuously rides the train, unable to get through the door... but then again, the Toad has not moved from his spot in his room. Ever. He claims to have, but he hasn't. It's lies.
Mario Kart Wii Review
OK, so I finally got Mario Kart Wii. I had to split the money with my dad. But heck, I got it, right? Well, anyway, all is good now. If I could review games other than Mario games, I'd be reviewing Final Fantasy Tactics A2 next month, but that's not an option. So I'll be hard pressed to find something. Tongue
I'll just say it now: this game is fantastic. It's awesome. But it does have it's faults, like any awesome game. What are those faults? What makes this game so great? I plan to answer these and other questions with this review.
Well, first off, the motion sensitivity of the game is mostly what makes this game so incredible. Being able to truly control your kart is incredible. And this experience is even better than at those arcade Mario Kart games, too. This is like no other you have ever played.
Ok, as a Wii game, this game has great graphics. In the great span of all video game consoles? No. It's mediocre. The colors are very smooth, however, and the main graphics look great at first. Upon (much) closer inspection, however, the characters are rather blocky, the animation doesn't flow perfectly, and the karts don't fit the characters perfectly. But, in the scheme of things, they work out fine for the great gameplay.
OK, here we go. Please ignore all of my adoring comments. The gameplay is awesome. It plays like any other Mario Kart game: you play four races for each Grand Prix. The higher you place, the more points you get. In this game, however, there are twelve racers on the track at the same time. This leads to some very intense games and some major losses if you happen to get any place lower than eighth. The four new places add some fun in, too, because you have a much higher chance of getting a good item.
I HATE THE COMPUTERS. OK, sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. The computers in the game are actually the smartest computers I have ever seen in my entire life of video games. They are OK in 50cc and 100cc, but the difficulty is ramped up in 150cc and the secret mode. For an example of the computers' incredibility: if they are ahead of you, they will steal the item box you are directly in front of you, even if it means they will lose their first place to another computer. They also will bump into you a LOT, especially if you're a light character. This can lead to many second place endings in the Grand Prix mode.
There are a ton of modes in the game. First off is Grand Prix, which I already explained. After that is Time Trial, in which you can race Staff Gosts right off the bat. Doing so is extremely challenging and fun. After Time Trials is Versus mode, which is pretty much four 100cc matches in which you choose the courses. Lastly is Battle Mode, where two six-member teams duke it out to either pop each other's balloons or collect coins. Battle is fun, but you go about the speed of a 50cc Grand Prix, which is rather slow. You can play Versus with 1-4 players, which is awesome if you're having a party. The final mode is Wifi, which needs it's own… Section…
Wifi is what defines this game. You can play with up to 11 other people all around the world in a series of matches. The formalities? Come and go when you want. You won't even be shunned if you disconnect, because a new person can take your place at the end of the race (not that I'm encouraging you to D/C… Tongue). But it was the greatest Wifi experience I've ever had. There is nearly no lag, and you can actually bump into people! But seriously, you need to see to believe.
Kinda a short review, I know… But it's an awesome game.
- Final Score by InfectedShroom: 9.3/10 – Seriously. The gameplay is so incredible that it outweighs all the faults. The Wifi mode also takes the score up a couple of notches. Cheesy So get this game AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!
OK, that's my review, and I'm out! .
When I first saw this on the signup page, I thought ”Since when has this been here?” Well, no wonder, because despite being suggested as a section, none had been written yet. So, here goes a comparison, based on several categories, between the two biggest non-Big8 Mario characters; Waluigi and Daisy.
Daisy’s first appearance was the well-known Super Mario Land. You might say she even replaced Peach, the usual Damsel. But who knows what can happen in a game series involving Wario, right(not like he was in the game)? Anyway, that’s the only time she was the Princess in need of rescue. From there, she became a regular in Mario Sports games; but that’s a different section.
Waluigi debuted in a very successful Mario Sports game, Mario Tennis for the N64. It is possible(in fact likely) that Waluigi was created to become Wario’s partner in Sports games and Mario Party games, etc. Since then, with the exception of a very minor appearance in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, and another minor appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Waluigi has been a regular in Sports Games, and has only appeared playable in them as well.
Daisy, as you all, know, is rather tom-boyish, compared to some of the other Princesses in the series. It would probably be interesting to compare Daisy and Rosalina, with such different personalities, but that’s off-topic. She makes friends, like Peach, so I guess she's friendly. Waluigi has a whole bunch of enemies, on the other hand.
Waluigi, like his brother(?), Wario, likes to be above the others. This can especially be seen in Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, when Waluigi steals the Music Keys; He apparently likes to dance as well... Anyway, he is the kind that wants to be #1; whatever it takes. He wants to be more popular than his rival Luigi. But then again, Luigi wants to be more popular than Mario; so, Waluigi still has a ways to go.
So, after appearing in Super Mario Land, what games did she appear in? I won't list them all, obviously, but a general number. Daisy has appeared in: 8 Mario Party Games, 6 Mario Kart games, 1 Mario Golf game, 2 Mario Tennis games, and a bunch of others, like baseball, Olympics, etc. In any of those games, though, her partner was always Peach.
Well, he's appeared in every game mentioned above, plus some others. He had a cameo in Brawl, but even if you don't want to count that, there's still some more. The before-mentioned DDR:MM, he was a semi-minor villain, in Mario Kart Arcade GP, Waluigi is featured as a playable character(Daisy had only a cameo).
But besides those, every sport game Daisy is in, Waluigi has been in. Or vise-versa.
So, after comparing those two characters, seeing the pros and cons, what do you think? It's hard for me to come down with a conclusion myself, because if I did, people would rant about how I'm biased, the other character's better, yaddayaddayadda. Anyway, here's the winner, based on the categories:
