Oh and the Broodals have got to be the worst character designs Nintendo have ever done, the Rabbids have more personality. RABBIDS.


Agree with the bareness but still a massive amount packed in. Agree with the Broodals - somewhat generic - actually reminded me of Ubisoft design full stop.

If you're talking about those white wedding planners, I actually thought they were rabbids and maybe some form of crossover with the other game...

Have people managed to figure out the painting clues without a guide? I'm bloody stumped.

I didn't really even try but one or two are quite obvious - Cascade Kingdom for example.

Yeah the location ones are straight forward but the one's like from the Cap Kingdom with the different coloured blocks that obviously represent characters are bastards.

They really vary in difficulty, but the level of excitement I get when rushing off after I think I've cracked one of the tougher clues and the subsequent feeling of satisfaction and achievement after obtaining the moon... :datass:

:lol:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I need seven more Moons on Cascade Kingdom, but I seem cannot find where they are yet.

I love dropping in to this and finding a few more moons. The 3d worlds are the best I've ever seen. So simple on first viewing and then they open up to show so much hidden stuff. I don't have a favorite world yet, but the tank is my favorite creature to control.

Wish my image sig would work

I don't want to play this around my kids as I really want them to discover it all on their own. It's utterly flipping brilliant.

Finished the main story yesterday and currently on 317 moons. Feels good.

Done four of these puzzles now - no doubt the easy ones! Will keep trying with the others.

I've crawled my way up yo 450 moons. Not being brilliant at videogames, (despite having played since Space Invaders hit the arcades and on my trusty ZX81 with a wobbly rampak), my target is a mere 500 moons. I'm beginning to think it can be done!

Pretty much finished.

999 Moons and harder Bowser defeated. Over 65 hours total play. I won't be grinding coins for the skeleton suit as there's just no fun in that.

Great game. If we get DLC or a sequel, I'd love to spend some more time in New Donk, but I'm pretty tired of the other worlds at this point. Bring back New Donk as the snow level :wub:

A Fairytale of New Donk? I'd be up for that.

Alternatively, I'd love to see remakes of the Super Mario 64 levels with all-new power moons to explore and find.

I'm slowly creeping up to 500 and, unfortunately, I think that will be about my limit given my skill set. Kept me occupied for a long time though.
