In Mario & Luigi Dream Team, there’s a certain part in the game where you have to get through some fairly annoying ring puzzles by bouncing around in ball form and not landing on the same space twice.  I even mentioned it in my ‘best and worst parts of Mario & Luigi Dream Team article’: http://nintendo3dsdaily.com/nintendoarticles/opinion-mario-and-luigi-dream-teams-best-and-worst-moments Above: Many people’s personal hell. But while I struggled with them when playing the game the first time, I’ve now done a bit research and written down the answers to many of the puzzles instead.  So if you’re having trouble with a certain puzzle (or ten) in Somnom Woods, here’s a nice page of solutions that should help you out: http://nintendo3dsdaily.com/mario-ring-puzzle-solutions It’s mostly based […]

Gold Hockey Ghosts

In Luigi’s Mansion 2/Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon, each mission gives you a rank from 1-3 stars at the end of the level, with 3 stars being the best you can get.  But getting these ranks isn’t always easy, and the requirements are never told to you in game or in the instruction manual.  So here’s my guide to getting three star ranks in Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon so that hopefully everyone else can get them as well. The Criteria for a 3 Star Mission Rank As far as criteria go, there are theoretically three.  Namely: The amount of gold (bills, coins and bars) collected in a level How quickly you beat the mission How much health you lose (the less […]
