The second one on the moon took me forever

[–]duckface27[S] 230 points231 points  (12 children)

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

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

[–]TheNagChamper 77 points78 points  (9 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 40 points41 points  (8 children)

I found it pretty much impossible

[–]Mystrite 15 points16 points  (1 child)

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

[–]Scottie7372 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is what I use.

[–]raven0ak 6 points7 points  (0 children)

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

[–]kasakka1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

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.

[–]Xernot 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Wtf I got it first try I guess I got lucky

[–]Jastizz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

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

[–]vgf89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

[–]Zeyphr5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So much misplaced hatred

[–]Ree81 5 points6 points  (0 children)

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.

[–]c499 5 points6 points  (1 child)

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.

[–]Myrlithan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that's what I did, so annoying.

[–]thismachinewill 84 points85 points  (10 children)

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

[–]Auronblade 23 points24 points  (9 children)

Whips out Dark Souls

[–]MyNameIsBadSorry 40 points41 points  (6 children)

And a guitar hero controller

[–]Superkomainu 12 points13 points  (5 children)

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

[–]monopopo2761 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Pfft true pros play it on bannanas

[–]darkmario777 7 points8 points  (3 children)

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

[–]Scottie7372 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Real players play with a steering wheel

[–]bengye 123 points124 points  (8 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 57 points58 points  (6 children)

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

[–]bengye 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I bet she could dominate the Claw Machine :)

[–]duckface27[S] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

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

[–]chris2315 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Have you had her try the Jump Rope challenge yet?

[–]duckface27[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not yet... but I will now

[–]MationMac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

[–]_Inaba_ 51 points52 points  (8 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 87 points88 points  (7 children)

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

[–]_Inaba_ 102 points103 points  (3 children)

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.

[–]duckface27[S] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Well that’s terrifying

[–]thegreedyturtle 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Might earn some change.

[–]Jackulele 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ooh! Coins!

[–]splityoassintwo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

memorize the exact route

But it's a circle?

[–]Blazinvoid 5 points6 points  (0 children)

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

[–]3006721297 8 points9 points  (2 children)

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

[–]mrsmusick 3 points4 points  (1 child)

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

[–]SpideyAB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

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

[–]NderCraft 7 points8 points  (1 child)

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.

[–]FernandoRomero 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Video games appeal to the male fantasy

[–]i_miss_arrow 21 points22 points  (0 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Can’t wait for the strip club dlc for odyssey

[–]erold_HS 44 points45 points  (5 children)

I have to say I found those challenges fairly pedestrian.

[–]57u4R7 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I think nobody got the joke...

[–]Malmarks 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You're walking a fine line with that joke.

[–]SometimesIBleed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Better keep on steppin'...

[–]ZentaPollenta 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That is a fucking lie, A LIE I TELL YOU

[–]Webo_ 6 points7 points  (1 child)

protip draw the shape on your screen with a sharpie

[–]duckface27[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

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

[–]456789210 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“100 points”

[–]karmatin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

[–]LincolnArrais 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She is the (chosen) one

[–]Absurdtales 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Parmenion87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

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

[–]decarvalho7 0 points1 point  (2 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

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

[–]decarvalho7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

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

[–]jarjar190 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Psycho mantis?

[–]ZsaFreigh 0 points1 point  (2 children)

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

[–]duckface27[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

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

[–]NigHTdOom666 -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

It isn't very difficult

[–]kaZeeleKs 5 points6 points  (2 children)

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

[–]mdawgig 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Hold forward and rotate the camera.

[–]jmowens51 0 points1 point  (0 children)

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

[–]Draezeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Marriage material.

[–]Karleopard 0 points1 point  (1 child)

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.

[–]SometimesIBleed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Found the girlfriend's account.

[–]DigitalGT -1 points0 points  (0 children)

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

[–]DNAprototype -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

That doesn't sound like great gameplay.

[–]duckface27[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes because that’s the whole game

[–]7-2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

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.

[–]stabbin__hobo -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

My 5yo has to do these when we play.

[–]nintendude1229 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Is her your girlfriend God by any chance?

[–]potatoemancer -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Something something girls can multitask much more easier than boys -- which means that situations like these are a piece of cake to em.
