coin collecting i mean... do you get to buy $***... does it do what MK7 does and crap out a little something after you collect so many.

all i heard was score attack... if that is all. then that's kinda lame.


Or you know for fun?

Because thats why we play games.


Everyone keeps saying that, but if heading towards the goal gets boring, then what's the point in doing it?

A million is not a small number, even if you got about 2500 each level, you would still have to play a lot.

If your aren't excited for reaching the goal, then it might take two years of playing. At that point it doesn't even matter.

Your either trolling,being serious,or are just stupid. When the hell has collecting coins in ANY Mario platform game let you buy something?


Since when the hell has collecting coins been the primary advertised goal of a Mario game? You'd think if they were shooting for something different involving coin collecting that the coins would mean something more than they do in other Mario games. I mean, that's just simple logic. It's like heavily advertising Yoshi in all the ads and on the boxart and only letting you use him in a couple of levels-

Oh wait...



this is exactly what i was thinking.

Good to know that if he's serious, he is not stupid.

In Super Mario Land 2 coins didn't give lives automatically, you instead had to spend them on a minigame to obtain power-ups and extra lives. In Super Mario Advance 4's World E, you could use your coins to play different minigames in mushroom houses, which would give you various items if you won. I feel like NSMB2 should have been similar to both of these games by allowing players to spend their coins on useful items. Ideally, given the abundance of coins, I'd say the game should not have given extra lives for collecting coins, or at least given a life only every 500/1000 coins. Plus, they should have made it so that you would pay coins whenever you wanted to use a mushroom house (each of which would have a unique minigame that awarded you items based on your performance). Of course, coins spent would not detract from the overall total of coins collected.

geez could you stop using that argument? everybody plays games for "fun," thats the whole reason they exist. some people want a little more than just "fun" however, something this game doesn't seem to offer.

When you could buy something, how will it benefit you to progress in the game?

It means absolutely nothing. They built an entire lazy game around a pointless concept with no reward. This is what Nintendo is doing with Mario games these days. Lol
