    I get that. It still sounds like a major PITA.

    Checked the Intertubes...ANY Peach will give the heart, not just Wedding Peach. Same goes for Mario and Bowser.

    Also, the Wedding Mario Amiibo gives 30 seconds of invincibility with no apparent usage limit.

    I still have no clue how I'm going to get 100 jumps on the jump rope in New Donk City.

    Should be able to crash Bowser's wedding in a couple more hours this weekend, then all hell breaks loose. (Or I just buy from the neverending supply of moons that gets unlocked at the shop until I have 999, that works too.)

    You can't get 6 consecutive health from her however.

    Makes Dark side of the moon boss rush trivial.

    Yep. I still stand by my statement that ESPN NFL 2K5 was the greatest football game of all time.

    They all flatlined when the sports sold exclusivity to EA, 2k, or Sony.

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    I'm looking forward to the Black Friday sale on Xbox again this year. I may pick up NHL18 if it's half price. Or not.

    I haven't been too thrilled with the NHL series for years now. Bought them religiously every year from NHL 98 up to NHL 09 for N64, Gamecube, and PS2 (whatever system I had at the time, and also some PC duplicates). Then got a Wii and bought 2k10 and 2k11.

    Then a giant void where I realized I never needed to buy EA Roster Update so habitually. Then my wife and I bought an Xbox. I picked up NHL 15 with it.

    Whoooboy. I know I was way too familiar with motion controls after the Wii, but NHL15 felt lightyears different control wise (in a bad way) and yet, all too familiar in glitches (again, bad ones that never got patched) than prior EA attempts I was used to on the PS2.

    I struggled with 15 thinking it was just reacclimating to a regular controller. Glitches I knew were still present (cut across the crease, fire blindly behind you while skating away from the net, goalie won't attempt a save)

    Skipped 16 but played a buddies copy. Still struggled. Found new glitches (random penalties I took lead to playing whole game 5-on-3, even after serving penalty).

    Bought 17.

    I'm 31-121-18 career in online play. I get thumped regularly by 8 or 9 goals, yet I get A- ratings for my defensive play because I play good defense up until the AI decides it's had enough of me and my online opponent scores four quick goals early in the third to start the rout.

    Ugh. I don't mind losing fair. But the ice tilt is ridiculous in the series now. I'll put good pressure on using an umbrella play, get four or five good shots off, suddenly my pass goes right to the online opponent and they skate in on a breakaway and score on a lazy dribbler.

    Other times I can't clear the puck from my zone, my online opponent will pass-pass-score when the puck goes right past four of my players where the AI should have picked the puck up or broken the pass.

    It's frustrating trying to get good when only cheese goals and AI breaking plays are the go-to moves.

    *edit* Here was my last online game. Everything is about equal. Except the score. I was the Wings.https://imgur.com/a/FWSyC

    He was actually pretty feisty, but no.

    The festival. JFC. That's one of the most beautiful things Nintendo has ever done. I was grinning like an idiot all the way through.
