I, for one, prefer the much tighter control of SMB3 to the loose, more imprecise-feeling control of SMW.

I'm more partial to the fluidity of SMW's controls, particularly when in flight. In my opinion, watching Raccoon Mario ascend at a 45-degree angle and then frantically slowing his descent by mashing the A button is much less satisfying than gracefully riding the wind over entire levels in SMW.

I prefer Doki Mario 2 to the original anyway. :P

I'm actually celebrating this momentous occasion (albeit late) by 100%-ing the game in a single setting at my school's LAN party coming this Friday and enjoying seeing hundreds of peeps awestruck, mouth agape, at my l33t skills.
If she is indeed genetically mutated such that she has an eye in the back of her head, then I guess that she is genetically mutated and has an eye in the back of her head.

Hmm, does 100%ing SMB3 require visiting all White Mushroom Houses?

Not by my definition (don't think I've even ever gotten the ones in Worlds 6 or 7).  I'll try, but if I'm not going to put the playthrough on hold if I miss one.

So... your definition of 100% is 99%?

Only if the game keeps a record of you having done so. Doing something that the game doesn't actually keep track of is more of a self-imposed challenge than a requirement for 100%.

Uhhhhh, define "keep track of". I can't tell if you're agreeing with me or him.

Yeah, I guess technically it isn't 100%, but either way, I don't plan on going out of my way to get the one in world 7.  And @Weegee, I don't recall NES or SNES keeping track of anything other than if you beat the game (and worlds and Fortresses cleared in the latter).

I'm saying, it's only necessary if there's a discernible difference between a completed file with every White Mushroom House found versus one without.

Files? What is this?
That was a joke.

UGHH YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN... YOUR CURRENT SMB3 GAMEPLAY SESSION OR WHATEVER.

There is a discernible difference between a current SMB3 gameplay session that has visited every White Mushroom House and a session that has not: the amount of collected Anchors and P-Wings.

But, there is not a discernible difference between a session where someone warped to World 8 and a session where every single level up to World 8 was completed.

What about the absence of Warp Whistles in your inventory?
That was a joke.

Yes, I guess a 100% SMB3 session would have three Warp Whistles but that doesn't change my core point: WeeGee's definition of "what the game keeps track of" is flawed because once you leave a World, there's no telling how many levels of it you completed, ever.
