Super Mario 64: Jolly Roger Bay Stars – Plunder in the Sunken Ship, 100 Coins and more

Jolly Roger Bay is the first traditional water level in Super Mario 64, and is found on the right hand side of the main lobby of the castle behind a 3-star door. It’s a level that changes a fair amount depending on the star you select with the central ship sometimes afloat and sometimes sunken. We’ll detail all in the full stars guide below. If you’re done with this stage, be sure to check out the rest of our Super Mario 64 Ultimate Guide for every other stage’s stars, including the Castle Secret Stars.Jolly Roger Bay Star 1: Plunder in…

Super Mario 64: Wet-Dry World Stars

The 11th course in Super Mario 64 is Wet-Dry World, and for my money, this is where this game really hits its stride. While many of the levels in Mario 64 so far have been good, this level is the first of a back-half streak that shows a real confidence with this Mario team working to create a 3D game. It has a unique mechanic – raising and lowering water levels. While you can raise and lower the water inside the stage with special switches, keep in mind that you can change the water height on spawn by the height…

Super Mario 64: Snowman’s Land Stars

We’re now into double digits, and course 10 of Super Mario 64 is another snow one – found on the upper levels of the castle. To reach Snowman’s Land you’ll have to unlock the door on the upper level of the lobby with the key obtained for beating Bowser a second time – which you do by first completing the first star of the previous stage, Dire, Dire Docks. Up the stairs there’s a whole bunch of new rooms and paintings – which means new courses.Snowman’s Land is actually hidden. Go into the room with the large mirror and look…

Scalpers are already profiting from the ‘limited release’ of Super Mario 3D All-Stars

By Dom Peppiatt, Sunday, 6 September 2020 14:25 GMT Nintendo’s choice to make Super Mario 3D All-Stars a ‘limited release’ is backfiring as scalpers take to online auction sites to charge ridiculous rates for the game.The collection of three Super Mario games (Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy), which was announced earlier this week, will launch on September 18, and you’ll only be able to buy it until March 31, 2020.Oddly enough, there will be a limited number of physical games made, and that’s already driving more unscrupulous types to flood auction sites with listings of the game…

Streamer sets Super Mario 64 world record while playing with drums

By Cian Maher, Monday, 31 August 2020 14:44 GMT A Super Mario 64 streamer recently set a brand new world record while playing through the game using nothing but an electronic drum set. The streamer in question – who goes by the handle CZR – regularly publishes a mix of drum covers and gaming videos to his YouTube channel. Occasionally, he combines the two and speedruns iconic games using a pair of drumsticks instead of an ordinary controller.Check out the video below, which shows CZR speed-drumming his way through Super Mario 64 in under 30 minutes.It’s worth noting that this is…
