    Is the Culex fight near Smithy? My game is saved there, so if I can, I'd like to find it.

    culex is in monstros town in a sealed door that you can open with a "shiney stone" that you can get from the little mole girl in molevile, I think that's what it's called, you can get it for a trade of fireworks that you get from the firework guy for 500 bucks. the battle is very hard, but a great chalange, the prize you get from it is realy odd and I'm still trying to figure out what's so great about it, realy good for EXP. thou, but it's realy hard to beat him unless you max out all your characters at lv. 30, but if you have anyone who can levle up try atatching an EXP. booster to them for a TON of EXP. you don't get mutch coin from it if I remember corectly but it's still a great chalange and a test of your skills as a RPG gamer.

    The item Culex drops i think is the Quartz Charm or something like that (i'm sure u'll let me know if i'm wrong tounge.gif ). It increases the damage the character does x1.5, so if you normally hit for 200, you'll hit for 300 instead. It may ruduce damage taken by x1.5 too, but I haven't tested it.

    culex was one of the funnest bosses ive ever fought.

    just curious, but did anyone ever do that trick in the the tower where you can play as 16-bit mario for a minute or so?

    Better question, who didn't do it. And I think it was 8-bit, not 16 bit tounge.gif tounge.gif

    The only real way to beat culex is to get the Lazy Shell. You have to find the seed and the fertilizer. The seed should be found during a scene in one of the levels, but the fertilizer can be found on a secret invisible ledge off to the side of Nimbus Land. Then you plant it in the pot in the planters house in Rose Town(I think that's the name, the place where everyone was getting hit with arrows).

    Quartz carm and rose town are both right, for me it hasn't been that long since I played so I remember. took me awile to find the fertilizer and eaven longer to figure out how to use it. by the way, has anyone been able to get the jump suit? you get it from getting 100 super jumps in a row. and has anyone gotten all of the secret boxes? I did, big waste of time, you only get a pat on the back sort of thing mad.gif

    The only thing that ticked me off about the secret chests was missing the one at the beginning. How the hell were you supposed to know about that without an FAQ or playing through once already? (I forget the name of that item that sounds a chime when a treasure chest is near. After jumping around for 20 minutes I figured out it must be on a hidden platform that's too high.)
    Anyone ever notice this on the waterfall minigame? Swimming back up four times then letting go of A makes you drop back to where you were. Trying to swim a fifth time makes you drop a lot farther. So you can "climb" back up certain parts of the waterfall using the rock outcroppings at the forks.

    I could've sworn I heard that too! I haven't finished FF3 yet maybe he's in there. Maybe I missed him in 2. Ah well.

    I have done the 100 super jumps, and the super suit is a great piece of equipment. My favorite spot to do it was on Mushroom way and jump on the spikey guys, they were immune to jump attacks. So you had as many times to practice as you had FP without having to worry about killing them.

    Super Mario RPG is one of the best RPGs ever created and one of my all-time favorites. It Perfectly fused elements of the Mario Bros. games with a standard RPG and made it work so well. It's extremely fun and addictive and there really is no other game like it.

    Argh....That Super Jump thing irritates me to no end. I'm nigh-invulnerable in Soul Calibur, always getting Guard Impacts. Yet I can't seem to get the timing down for this simple jumping! Couldn't complete FF9's jump-rope game either come to think of it.

    Because the timing for those doesn't tend to alter that significantly. The multiple timing patterns that have to be memorized for Super Mario RPG's super jump challenge are quite significant.

    Super Mario RPG is better than FF7. The story, while not deep, is good enough to keep you wondering, "What happens next?" The graphics are the best I've ever seen on a 16-bit console, and the music is genius. (Sometimes I turn on the game just to hear the music!) The battle system combining simple RPG-style attacks with time-precision secondary attacks is the best battle system I've seen so far. I thoroughly enjoyed Super Mario RPG, and I look forward to re-playing it one of these days!



    (And then there's Paper Mario which is mediocre trash. Not bad; but not good either. I hope if there's a sequel, Squaresoft does it.)

    Super Mario RPG was a great game on the SNES and is one of my favorite games on the system - very easy to play, the story was entertaining (yet childish in some respects), and the soundtrack was fantastic. Also, I like the battle system, though some of the bosses were a bit irritating (Axem Rangers anyone?).
    No sig available at the moment. Will get around to it when I feel like it! :D

    What the frick? I though so too..until one of my lungs popped and I sat in the hospital playing Paper Mario until 1am every morning! That game was sweet! It was the epitome of economic design, expanded the mario universe, and had a great battle system that build on the Mario RPG heritage!

    Actually, I didn't really like Super Mario RPG. My brother was into it but the game control and feel were off: Jumping puzzles were never really smooth, and the search for frog coins was frustrating. I enjoyed Paper Mario much more.
    Not to say Mario RPG wasn't good...that game owns my younger brother's soul.

    My first ever RPG experience... this sort of makes me feel nostalgic...

    I loved this game, thanks to it I cannot get away from the Role type games, since I played SMRPG, came the Final Fantasy series, which I have enjoyed and I have had memorable battles in every single one, although the greatest one was the final showdown with Smithy.

    Wonderful in all aspects.

    I absolutely, positively, love this game. Just goes to show a game does not have to have outstanding graphics or a labyrthine plot to be amazing. Did anybody beat the dojo master, I did once but it was one of the hardest battles ever, but well worth the effort if I remember. I loved the town Marrymore(sp) you could rack up huge bill, and have to pay it back as a bell boy, classic.

    Fantastic game imo. I've beat it like 5+ times. One of the best Mario games in my opinion. If it was a little longer, it would probably fall into my top 5 rpgs actually.

    Super Mario RPG was one of my favorite games of all time for the SNES. It was also amongst my first RPGs, though when I originally played it I did not understand the conceptual mechanics of RPGs, and expected it to be a normal Mario game. I was unpleasantly suprised at first, but when I figured it out, it became an awesome game and one I have played many many times.

    Ah SMRPG was good times, is it me or is there no love for Geno in these forums?? ?Geno was the biggest badass in the game imo. ?I loved red essences I had a whole bunch of them saved up to fight Culex thats why I could finish him so easily. ?

    Does anyone else here remember "<span class="spoiler">the cloud place where Mallow was from and you could sleep at the inn and have strange dreams</span>"

    The dojo guy in monstro had some good quotes to I think although I can't remember them, he was cool though.

    That was a tight game all around.

    Super Mario RPG...Good game, never finished it though. ?Got to the end, then stopped. ?Got hard for me, actually. ?I couldn't stand the bosses that were crazy and never let you attack. ?I suppose that's why I never play the game anymore...And I don't recall any RPG's with only five playable characters. Anyway, I rate the game a 4 out of 5. smile.gif

    Fuzzman: That has got to be the weirdest review I've read in a long time. It was too hard for you, you couldn't stand required aspects, and you never play it anymore and it's a 4/5?

    And mario RPG and HARD?! In the same context?
