The interaction with developers is a really cool feature with miiverse.

I hope this grows more and more.

Toki tori 2 had drawing a contest and the winners got their drawings put in the game.

I hope they start doing competitions where they give out prizes, since your nnid is linked to your club Nintendo account(I think?).

MiiVerse seems to get closer and closer to being a system seller for me by the day. But I still want to wait for either: 1) a price drop, 2) a unified account system, or 3) region free or 4) Smash Bros.

I absolutely love the way Nintendo I'd utilizing the internet now with their consoles. Its not about grabbing more money, its about making the games BETTER.

Kudos to them.

I would do this, but I don't have a Wii U and my niece who does is getting the physical copy of the game so I won't have a chance to try this.

Any idea how long it can take to do it?
I think finishing nsmbu with secret exits make it around an hour, so if you at least double the count cause of the difficulty, it seems doable, but I haven't much time these days and pikmin3 is coming. I could try on a night run I guess...

I have been playing for 3-4 hours and I am 7-fortress.

Edit: Holy shit, 3 hours to complete 7-fortress. Tomorrow I will continue.

He did post a Pikmin 3 challenge mode video. I think there's a thread somewhere with it.

How'd you pull off 7-Fortress? ATM I'm trying to get through the crusher coin section with Mini Luigi (not small Luigi). Is that the right approach?

I was originally gonna try and do it without power ups btw, but 2-Fortress sorta ruined that idea x_x. I did all the ones before that as Small Luigi though!

BTW, mine is probably going to have 0 in items collected too. For some reason, Power Ups collected in the overworld dont count!

Yes, you need mini-luigi. Good luck with all 0 items.

You should post the Miiverse link so people can Yeah. I'm going to try to now.

When communities pop up, we're totally:

A) Making a NeoGAF community, and
B) Doing challenges like this all the time.

Something I don't understand, when you lose, the coins collected are still in your pocket so you have to do all the levels before and after a castle save if you get coins in between, right?

You find yellow pages all throughout the levels, most are hints and tips. Some are the secret memos, which just shows a number.

What's stopping us from doing something like that right now, using threads on GAF? For example, I set a challenge, people try to do it and post their Miiverse screenshots in the thread. I think we had a similar thread for VC high scores or something.

Nothing except two major differences:
1. you just need to click on a button to take and post a picture on Wii U;
2. miiverse private threads will be structured by game.

This will make this feature so easy to use, it will likely be used to its full potential.

Sure, doing it through Miiverse will undoubtedly be the best option, but I meant until private Communities are a thing.

Ooh, true true true! We *can* post screens on GAF, after all.

I just need more games - all I have (non-digital) are the following:

- SaSASRT
- Monster Hunter
- LEGO City Undercover
- New Super Mario Bros. U

And I'm pretty bad on the last one. Hell, I can't beat level two of superstar road :( But! It'll be fun to watch one way or the other.
