Digging for Switch threads reminded me to post in this one. I completed the first? story last night! Holy crap, that last Kingdom and the stuff to get to the end, wow! This game makes me so happy when I play it. I almost didn’t want to “finish” it because it was just too cool! I already briefly went to other places and I’m almost overwhelmed now by how much there is to do after the game is over. Gah!
The really awesome thing is if I left it right here forever, I still love it so much, and yet there’s tons more to do. Anyone can get their money’s worth from this one and @wumpus, I suspect this IS the Super Mario 64 sequel you always wanted. You’ll go nuts.
