I'm not gonna lie, the cooperative strategies basically made it so half the people weren't playing.

i think we could have figured it out on our own...

Posted by Skald

Coop, or catch up? Mario wasn't really made for four people of different skill levels on screen at once.

no one's gonna cooperate in this game.  it's every guy for him self.

Posted by LordKorax

Wow. I don't think they could have made that more boring if they had tried.

The dead zone effect that Brad was talking about was also the reason that the DS version felt weird to me. Great game, but fundamentally a departure from the classic Nintendo platforming feel.

Hahahahah single player water crossing? WTF?! Has that not been in every single Mario game since forever.  What the hell is this.

Posted by CommodoreGroovy

I thought when they said "Water-Crossing", they meant walking on water. I almost fell out of my chair. ALMOST.

Is anyone else annoyed with the "remastered" music in this game? The vocal synth sounds in particular would seem reason enough for me to avoid this game entirely…

Super Awesome Startegie Carnage!

So your best bet is to play 2 player co-op with an equally skilled player?

Posted by raggedglory

most of those didn't seem like strategies, let alone super strategies

CHAOTIC COMPETITION FTFW!

Edited by jasondaplock

Are we not supposed to know how to do things like that right off the bat? I guess that would make the game difficult.

Watch as these players pursue ENTICING feats of danger and awe!

These are mad skills! Not even a 5 year old could pull these off.

This didnt explain how to jump. Still in 1-1. Standing there.

Posted by Whiskeyjack

Not particularly super "super strategies"..

Posted by fox01313

I want my 3 minutes refunded to me as didn't really see much point to the video. Love how on the single player strategy for the secret area showed you where but still couldn't pull it off.

I dont get it, are these really "super strategies"? I was expecting something that would blow my mind but these are things I would normally do in a Mario game minus the multiplayer

Posted by Besetment

Cooperative=carry the other guy?

Posted by Milkman

I wouldn't call these "super" strategies.

Posted by Gamer_152

There are parts of this trailer which just kill the pacing.

Super doesn't come to mind. Special, however, does.

These are lame. The in-game Super Skills videos you can buy with Star Coins are much more skillful and fun to watch.

Posted by Synthballs

that as useless. I think we've all played a mario before and this isn't some fandangled revolutionary idea.

Posted by Media_Master

Good to know.

Posted by TheHBK

can anyone tell me why these sound designers are so in love with that horn like sounds? It gets annoying so annoying I might not get the game.

Posted by jamescheong

Same horrible music style as the DS game unfortunately

@beeryayghost: dude to jump you press B, but can anyone help me with how to move? The a button isn't doing anything.
Posted by IcySandman

They should so do an ER on this, see how long it lasts/how long they last.

Posted by Little_Jeff

who is this really for?

good luck bro, i've been trying to figure that one out all night. they really gotta tone down these game a bit. idk how the players in this video do it. they probably made the game or something and that's how they know all these strategies.

Why didn't they just title this "New Super Mario Bros. Wii Gameplay"?

Posted by JackSukeru

I need this game. NEED IT!

Posted by Darksideshadow

In other words, learn to work together!

A great game

That song is going to drive somebody to the brink of insanity.

Posted by Tarquinn2049

I think one of the main points was that cooperative play as well as chaotic play, both got the job done. You basically choose which one you prefer. If cooperative looked boring to you, then you likely would rather play chaotically. If chaotic looked too messy and involved too many deaths for you to be comfortable playing that way, then cooperative might be your thing. Different people see different styles as good/bad, but they are both viable.

Wow...that skill. It's amazing

Posted by BolognaSoup

Did Brad really take time out of his day to post the world's most obvious Mario "strategies?"

You win :)   I actually took the time to type my login info into GB so I could reply to this.
Posted by BenderUnit22

I like how their suggested way of getting through the levels with 4 people is to minimize the number of actual players by picking each other up.
