You know what's funny? My name's Mariomguy and I didn't make a single Mario video. So now, what's a better Mario video than the ending of probably the greatest Mario game ever made... and exposing a glitch in the endless staircase?
So yea, I started the vid exposing the glitch, but said "this isn't enough for a video, it needs more," then I decided to complete the final Bowser level and defeat Bowser. Back then, this was the most pwnful level of all time... now, it's just so easy. I wish Nintendo made a super-hard Mario game, like the "world's hardest Super Mario Bros. mod." I have faith in Galaxy since it's levels are just so expansive, while retaining the platform-jumping that made Super Mario 64 so famous.
Some of my most asked questions:
Q: How do you do the stair glitch?
A: Do a long jump away from the stairs, then tilt the control stick up. Mario should still be doing long jumps and facing you, but at the same time going up the stairs instead of down. Hold the Z button while pressing the jump button as fast as you can, and Mario will eventually make it up the stairs.
Q: Hang on... you were in the attic with only 46 stars...
A: You can do the same glitch on the stairs leading to the attic and pass through the doors without 50 stars.
Q: Can the glitch be done in the DS version?
A: I had the DS version before I lost it (beat it with all 150 stars though). I can very well say that the controls will make it impossible to do the glitch, even if the glitch remained.
Q: What version is this game?
A: This is the Wii's Virtual Console version of Super Mario 64. The glitch will work with an original N64 copy too, but without an analog stick it would be hard to do on Project 64 (PC N64 emulator).
Q: Where is the cake at the end, when Mario says "Thank you so much for-to playing my game?"
A: The Wii has a burn-in reduction for old plasma TV's where an image would burn in to the screen if it was shown too long. It's a built-in screensaver and it triggered while I wasn't looking. I included the cake ending to one of my other Super Mario 64 videos. The link is in the annotations at the end.
Q: Why didn't you ask me to subscribe to you yet?
A: Because I don't want you to subscribe to me if you don't want to! Super Mario 64 is a classic. I'm looking forward to Super Mario Galaxy videos as well as coverage on Super Smash Brothers Brawl. I might not ever come back to Super Mario 64 on Youtube, unless I get requests. So if you subscribe to me, keep that in mind!
Thank-a you so much for-to watching this video!
