The second one on the moon took me forever

Original Poster234 points · 5 months ago

She’s on that now. 87 is her highest so far

Edit: scratch that, she’s just done the moon one with 94

Holy hell I rage quit so many times trying to get that moon

Original Poster39 points · 5 months ago

I found it pretty much impossible

16 points · 5 months ago · edited 5 months ago

It's really easy. Look for marks I.e. Bushes

This is what I use.

or just do it like me, learn the position of stick by repeating the start and then maintain that stick position

The trick is to identify markers on the ground like bushes or texture variations and whrn walking find the right angle so that Mario walks at the right angle. To do this you can just walk straight ahead and use the right stick to control the angle so your view is rotating a bit,causing you to walk a circle.

Wtf I got it first try I guess I got lucky

i dont get why you people have that much problems. just hold the stick at the same angle all the time. and just correct it if it isnt working one time

I somehow got 100 second try on the moon one. Took a bit to get that on the circle one though

So much misplaced hatred

7 points · 5 months ago

I figured out you can do it backwards. So just follow the arrows on the hard part (with no visual markers on the ground), then go over that ridge or whatever. Got it first try.

On the moon one I got 95 on my first try, which gave me my first moon when 80 were required. Then when 90 moons were required I just couldn't get back up to my first attempt's score again for like 20 minutes.

Yeah that's what I did, so annoying.

Her: "This is why I don't play games, they're way too easy. Waste of time tbh."

Whips out Dark Souls

And a guitar hero controller

pfff, amateur, real pros play it with voice-controls

Pfft true pros play it on bannanas

Hahahahaha. You obviously don't know legit pros play it on DK Bongos.

Real players play with a steering wheel

Nice reference to my favorite YouTuber

Everyone, look at this guy! He doesn't think Dark Souls is hard! Wowee

120 points · 5 months ago

that was really hard for me, you girlfriend is some sort of video game genius

Original Poster58 points · 5 months ago

I know, I’ve got her doing the other 2 locations now!

21 points · 5 months ago

I bet she could dominate the Claw Machine :)

Original Poster14 points · 5 months ago

Haha yeah I might have to take her down the arcades and win me some crap

Have you had her try the Jump Rope challenge yet?

Original Poster5 points · 5 months ago

Not yet... but I will now

1 point · 5 months ago(1 child)

My tip: start in the right direction, and just keep walking. No, further than that.

The cactus and bush are there as reference points, should make it a bit easier.

51 points · 5 months ago

Context? Don't own a switch yet. What do you do in this "tracewalk" part?

Original Poster88 points · 5 months ago

A koopa gives you a blue pattern on the floor in a circle or triangle and you have to walk the exact steps of the arrows but they disappear in 2 seconds so you have to memorise the exact route

105 points · 5 months ago

Don't dump her or she'll memorize all your ex's numbers, call them to beat you up, and then it'll be an episode of Scott Pilgrim vs the world.

Original Poster21 points · 5 months ago

Well that’s terrifying

Might earn some change.

Ooh! Coins!

memorize the exact route

But it's a circle?

You'd be surprised how easily people can get messed up on it.

-4 points · 5 months ago

This is why a girl can remember every thing you ever did wrong to her ever.

The first one I ever did was the triangle one in the ice and I got a 99. Missed the last one

I'm impressed! I was ready for a fight by the time I got the minimum.

It took me 5 tries to get the minimum and I was piiiissed

If you are having a hard time getting this done try this: Move the camera as you move Mario. You can just press right and turn the camera so that Mario does a little circle. That's how I did it on my first try.

Video games appeal to the male fantasy

I'd kill to be able to walk in a briefly displayed loop.

Can’t wait for the strip club dlc for odyssey

I have to say I found those challenges fairly pedestrian.

25 points · 5 months ago

I think nobody got the joke...

You're walking a fine line with that joke.

Better keep on steppin'...

That is a fucking lie, A LIE I TELL YOU

7 points · 5 months ago

protip draw the shape on your screen with a sharpie

Original Poster3 points · 5 months ago

Don’t listen to this tip!!! Its cheating, we wouldn’t want cheating would we

“100 points”

Good to hear you and your hands are finally exclusive...

She is the (chosen) one




I got a 60 on my first try. Wife got a 0 on hers. She actually did about three rotations without finding her start.

How do you get your camera staying still on the TV? Mine always falls off

Original Poster2 points · 5 months ago

It has little clips on the bottom, plus it’s not a super flat tv it’s a pretty old one that’s quite wide

Thanks I’ll look for them I feel such an idiot lol


Psycho mantis?

Nice, I got 100 on the Triangle shaped ice one.

Original Poster5 points · 5 months ago

Well done, I’m dogshit at it I can’t ever get 70

-5 points · 5 months ago(3 children)

For some it might be but for me it wasn't. Maybe I just have a really useless talent :D

Hold forward and rotate the camera.

Yeah the circle one is easy as hell if you do this. Triangle is more difficult.

Marriage material.

This happened with me too. Is it supposed to be hard? You can easily use the positions of the bushes and cactuses to guide you.

Found the girlfriend's account.

I don't see how this is hard just look at the cactuses

-11 points · 5 months ago(0 children)

That doesn't sound like great gameplay.

Original Poster5 points · 5 months ago

Yes because that’s the whole game

6 points · 5 months ago

This is actually the whole game. Once you beat it, the koopa reveals himself to be Bowser and psycho mantis. You must then defeat hit to achieve the Odyssey and win the game. Well worth the 60usd price tag.

You don't have to be hot to have a girlfriend/boyfriend. They just have to find you attractive.

My 5yo has to do these when we play.

Is her your girlfriend God by any chance?
