Glad those who want this kind of content are getting it. Glad the people who want to make it have an audience too watch them. I hope everyone who buys the game enjoys it.

I've been making intentionally "boring" levels (stuff you'd find in a Mario game) because I don't love bullshit hard/trolly stuff, but it sure is fun to watch others suffer through it.

@jeremyf: Hey, those "boring" levels are actually the best/most fun in my opinion. There's nothing I enjoy more in these games than a well crafted Mario level.

If I ever run into a level along the lines of what Jeff/Dan/Patrick make, I instantly quit. It just ain't fun. (Though it is fun to watch the gang suffer.)

You know what, I like Dan's level. It's the perfect mix of dickishness that's right on brand and good ideas/platforming. Meaning it's actually possible to beat it. The section with the shells and the switch? Genius.

EDIT: WAIT! Let me clarify. I like the first level by Dan. The one Jeff beats. The second one that poor Ben had to repeat over and over? Nuh uh. No one likes that level.

Never had a WiiU so didn't play MM at all. Got MM2 day one. It's fun and all, but it is kind of a bummer how having your level played seems to be hard without having a platform with a lot of followers to play them. That was something I didn't really think about when it came to these games.

@bladededge: Wholesome endorsement, no caveats. This is what everyone should want, even if it's not for you and you don't necessarily appreciate what's going on.

I just didn't want this to go by and nobody saying this is a good thing. It is.

This Mario maker stream really got me into beating some of these tougher levels. Was able to beat one of Dan's and both of Jeff's.

@hassun Thanks for sending me the Stank! level in chat (before Ben played it for like 2 minutes). Took an hour or so, but I manged to beat it.

@jaqen_hghar: The new Tab will show any unplayed level, but it goes "oldest unplayed first".

So that's why all the levels in the new tab are from like 4 days ago. As people go through it, your level will 100% appear there until at least 1 play, and then after a level is played once it's put into the "active queue" for people to randomly find in the challenge queue

So after your level gets played once, it'll get played a lot. don't worry. The new queue has to catch up

@jaqen_hghar: Yeah, the sharing side is definitely much improved if you've got a measure of internet celebrity. I'm in the same boat as you and am playing MM for the first time.

Having a lot of fun with it but definitely not getting the full Giant Bomb Mario Maker experience yet.

The stylus which is in the post today will change all that, of course. Of. Course.

Dan's not-an-asshole level is actually really good. I hope he makes more stages like that, because he seems to have a knack for them.

Though it would be fun if GB just once did like a super polished news-like presentation and acted like that was totally normal. It should only happen once and they will never speak or refer of it again.

What is Jason looking at? I mean why is he not looking at the same screen as everyone else but still seems to follow what happens. Does he have a second screen?

Tired: GB SMM1 streams of the crew making levels

Wired: GB SMM2 streams of the crew playing levels.

This is way more enjoyable, imo. Maybe the crew can even make their levels at home and bring it to the office for the other crew members to try to complete.

Happy for the folks that like Mario Maker content. All GB content was an automatic watch for me until about a year ago. Now, GB East is an automatic watch and GB West is maybe once a month... Not a complaint, though, as there is so much good content coming from GB East that it's enough for me to keep my Premium going forever.

@jaqen_hghar: I think it can still be quite fun if you can just find one friend who has the game to trade levels with. Especially if you can watch each other play either streaming or in person. Me and a friend did this in MM1 and it was a blast. Sure it was cool when other people liked or commented on a level, but the real fun was watching my friend play. Unfortunately, they passed away and I haven't been able to really muster up the will to make a level in MM2 yet. At least there is still a lot to do playing other peoples levels. There are some really creative, fun levels out there.

@ripelivejam: This, absolutely. I have the VT60 model, which is the same television but from the next year. Other than an OLED 4k, I've never seen another TV with its color reproduction. It has a beautiful image, though limited to 1080p.

More East/West video conferencing please! Love it when both teams collab, feels like old GB again.

Also, Ben inadvertently broke the Celeste maker's puzzle in the first try but didn't notice. Which made it extra frustrating. All you have to do is kill the same "easy" Creeper and enter/exit the room 6 times. The counter kept the 1/6 when he went back in. Oh well. Great UPW!
