@themoon13: So I got: vine block one, the one on the cloud top left, the turtle shell block destroy + ? box over it, music block, the pool of turtles one and another one that I don't remember. There's one coin under some ground that I don't think you can get, so I figured it's a hint that maybe it's underground? Tried the pipe but nothing. So I'm just missing the hint with that underground one probably.

Same here.

Vine block = 1, turtle shell wall = 2,3,4, cloud top left = 5, music block = 6, turtle soup = 7. Pipe does nothing, and I figured maybe you need to kill the piranha plant for that coin, but no. So I also cannot find coin 8.

First up, I finished creating my first Maker 2 level, should be pretty easy for experienced Mario Maker players.

T1R-5QR-V0G - The Tropical Trampoline Trials.

Grab the trampoline and bring it with you to the end of the level :)

As I mentioned previously, I'm going to play all levels in this thread, in order. I got to post #7 today, and it turns out a lot of these levels are pretty hard for me. I'll comment on a few:

@ramblesnonsense "Jumping and Dropping", W2T-L0D-50H is about the perfect difficulty level for me. Took maybe 10-ish attempts to finish it, any more and it tends to become a bit frustrating.

@thegrumpskin "Bowser Tower", YK6-7TH-RWG looks cool, I didn't get very far. I downloaded and will try it again some day.

@turboman Y1L-HB4-RJG "Dropped a coin can you get it?", man if you hadn't put that final spike in the train path I would have enjoyed this a lot more. There is too much waiting to get to that part to try it again, so I gave up. (did find your coin though :)

@tonyblue87 V4S-HWJ-YMF "A Boy and His Bill", my favorite so far, even though I only managed to get to the fourth bill or so. I've downloaded this one as well to try again later.

PS. Thanks to everyone who checked out Mia's level from my previous post, much appreciated!

Hello! It's great to see a Mario Maker code sharing thread again.... it's been so long! I'm going to try all of these in the coming days, and will have a level for you guys to try soon as well.

In the meantime though, can you guys give this level a try (not mine, but helping my kid get some views):

Noticed here: https://www.giantbomb.com/nintendo-labo-toy-con-04-vr-kit/3030-72391/videos/

Videos tab shows there are 2 videos, but the grid/list only shows 1, and the pager says there are "18887 results".

Surely they are going to announce a Metroid Trilogy release on the Switch now, right or are they going to port the recent Metroid 2 remake?

Metroid Other M for switch ;)

I'm glad they're trying something new.

I think those first three days could use some work though. Going through the year in release order makes sense on paper, but I found it turned out really boring and predictable (at least if you're a regular beastcast/bombcast listener you probably have some idea of which games came out when and what the crew thought about them).

I don't have a solution, but I hope they mix it up a bit somehow next year.

Days 4 and 5 were more fun to listen to, they seemed to be going less in circles than previous years (though that could be my imagination). Especially the RDR2 discussions were exciting, and had me going back and forth between "I have to play this game!" and "Oh that sounds like some Rockstar ass bullshit, this game would infuriate me, I better skip it" a bunch of times [1].

PS. I did end up not buying RDR2, as almost all Rockstar games have annoyed me enough to never finish them. The only Rockstar game I've finished was "The Ballad of Gay Tony".

(I ended up replaying the chapter from the start, I didn't run into this problem the second time through)

Anyone still playing this or played it recently?

I'm stuck in chapter 2. After finding the Yggdrasil tree Gerontius asks me to find Holyhock, which is in a vault near the tree. The vault is made from unbreakable blocks and is locked, so I need a key.

Apparently I can make a key from liquid silver, to get the recipe for liquid silver I need to do the "Silver Hunt" quest for Hazel. However, Hazel seems stuck on something else and isn't giving me that quest. Maybe I missed something?

Any ideas?

I'm using a Kinesis Freestyle Edge, it's nice to finally have a split keyboard with cherry mx'es. (I have browns, but you can get it with other color cherry mx switches obviously).

With announcement-to-release windows getting smaller, digital-only releases becoming more prevalent, and "normal" release times (i.e. Q4) continuing to erode, I think it's time for the GB crew to treat GOTY stuff like the Oscars and move it into January. This year it's especially pronounced - by ostensibly ending the year of games in the first week of December, these games are shut out of contention:

- Just Cause 4

- Smash Bros

- Below

- Desert Child


Those games should just be eligible for GOTY 2019. Any game released after they start recording the GOTY podcasts should be eligible for next year's awards.
