Wedding Mario/Peach/Bowser amiibo sell out at launch in China

The wedding is on!

It seems that the launch of Switch in China is going quite well, and that includes extra accessories as well. The Super Mario Odyssey series of Wedding Mario/Peach/Bowser amiibo have completely sold out already, and there's no word on if there will be a restock. Looks like the only option for now is to find a third party reseller locally, or import from another region.

Super Mario 64 fan creates a mod challenging players to complete a special course with as few A button presses as possible

Thing you're up for the challenge?

Super Mario 64, when played regularly, requires a lot of A button presses to make it to the end. That was way back in the day when we were all playing the game via N64, and weren't picking it apart at the seams via mods and hacks. Times have changed, and people have been diving ridiculously deep into Super Mario 64 to see just how they can tweak the game to make the impossible possible.

Infamous Super Mario 64 analyzer Pannenkoek2012 has been deconstructing Super Mario 64 for years now, figuring out new glitches and manipulation methods that allow him to complete the game with as few A button presses as possible. He's shown off various techniques through countless YouTube videos, but now he wants his viewers to take what he's taught and put it to the test.

Pannenkoek2012 has created a special Super Mario 64 mod that has 64 different challenges. Each one is made to test your skills in moving forward, all without using the A button, or using it as little as possible. The mod even keeps track of how many times you press the A button while trying to surmount the challenge. You'll need an absolute ton of glitch knowledge and skill to really test what this mod is asking of you, or you can just play it regularly and have fun!

Here's the real fun part, though. Whoever completes this course with the fewest amount of A presses by Jan. 21st, 2021 will be the winner of $1,000! Check out the video above for full details on the mod, the challenge, and how to participate.

Thanks to CM30 for the heads up!
