The title screen counts as a title screen theme. Many early games didn't have a title screen theme. It was just Name/Logo of game and game options.

Anyway, I have another secret to share: In Super Mario 64, the level Snowman's Land (I think that's it.. it's the second snow level), there is a lone coin that is very hard to reach. It is under the arm of the giant snowman that is holding the bridge across his arms up.

The coin can best be seen from close to where the canon opening is. I've collected it before when I was trying to get 100 coins in the level (for the Star).. Ironically, it was the 100th coin, and the Star floated up into the snowman's arm, and out of reach.

I call this a secret because it seems that many of my friends who are gamers have no idea that this coin is there. I am the only one who tries to collect it.

Collecting that coin to make the star appear counts as the second unreachable item in that stage. The first one being Mario's hat if it gets blown into the ice sculpture and lands underneath the 1st star.

Man, I feel like one of 10% of the board that actually reads the site.

Hehe.  I used to read only the main site--for years, actually.  When you bother to join the Fungi Forums, though, you get the option of living off the trickle down effect.

Lucky for you, Deezer doesn't update it too often.

A lot of information can also be learned in #tmk.
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

I go to the main website...when they notify us that they've got a new game on here or on my occasional check I notice that they finally updated the mailbag.

I remember when I used to go into #tmk just to ask about the mailbag...

Heh.  I've never been to the Minus World either.  I like walking through walls/ceilings in SMB though.

Oh, here's a horrible one...
I actually abuse animals in Zelda games all the time to test myself and see if I can avoid them. I'm evil...
But I'd never do such a thing in real life, of course. Count on that.

Whenever Ursala from Animal Crossing ticks me off, I hit her with the net.  Oh, and I once planted a pitfall in front of her doorway while she was in her house, and dug two holes, so she'd have no choice but to step on the pitfall.  When she fell in, I placed a boot in front of her and started whacking her with the net.

The bees didn't help any either.  Her house was RIGHT THERE, but RIGHT when I pressed 'A' to enter, the bees swarmed all around me and stung me!

I want a T-shirt that says "I survived the Cucco Swarm and all I got was this stupid T-shirt". I've been attacking Cuccos in every LoZ game I can attack them in ever since I started playing the series. I guess I have something against chickens.

They don't attack you in Twilight Princess. Instead, you control them for a short time. It's pretty fun.

Kojinka...I'm shocked.

Well, not really.

In LoZ:OoT, I used to pick up Cuccoo's and throw them. Just for the heck of it.

 In Animal Crossing, I randomly used to go around and hit animals with my net and try to hit them with my shovel. I also shoved one in a pitfall every so often.
