I picked up the UK version of SMA4... but it's rubbish. Without the eReader support, it's nothing more than an easier version of SMB3.
Where's the Ace Coin challenge? On the eReader of course... Where's the new levels? Oh, eReader again... Where's the eReader? Sorry Europe, no eReader for you. Make do with subpar games that were supposed to make use of the expansions.
At least they're putting all the secret eReader stuff into Animal Crossing and F-Zero: GP Legend so we won't need it.
I like SMA4 despite the lack of e-reader support in Australia...
I found the original too hard with the save function - if I can get my hands on the e-reader and the SMA4 cards, I'll play the levels and downright cheat by making Mario and Luigi hammer bros. and doing every level like that!
I will do it I say! You can't change my mind on this - I wanted to be hammer Mario when I first got SMB3 on the NES, and never found the suit until All*Stars - now I want it in every level - it's just something I have to do.
i remember hearing somethign about the e-reader not working on the sp so they redesigned it, but it didnt have the ability to connect to a cube when in an sp.
thats all bollocks tho, as my e-reader fits my sp fine and you can still connect it to animal crossing... its annoying that europe is the only place that doesnt get the e-reader, even australia has it to tie in with them getting animal crossing a good year before europe.
I have the SMA4 cards. I was lucky, I saw them at Best Buy and bought 'em, and the next day they were gone. I've never seen any other packs since then. Then, a while later, as I was looking at my complete collections of cards, I saw I was missing Power Up cards 1 and 2 (which I'm guessing are Super Mushroom and Fire Flower). Then I later heard that to get those two had to buy the game at Wal-Mart! That made me mad.
But anyway, if there was a SMA5, I'd want it to be a remake of either Super Mario RPG or Super Mario Land.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
