well... u need atleast 70 to beat it, but at the end, there really wasnt anything special except a cannon which shoots u 2 the top of the castle 2 meet up with yoshi who doesnt do anything but give u 99 lives and says, hey mario, u spent all that time, wasted all those lives, and went through all that pain, jus 2 see me and get more lives.... now u can roam around with nothing to do, WITHOUT STARTING OVER FROM INSIDE THE CASTLE AGAIN!!!! WOOHOO.... u get 99 lives.... for what? u already beat the game whats the point, theres nothing else 2 look at, no more secret passageways. nothin really. u jus walk around with nothing 2 do except try and kill urself 99 times....yo bro...its mind over matter...if she dont mind, he dont matter. boyfriends arent complications....theyre challenges. and who doesnt love a challenge from time to time? you had her once...think of it like mario 64...you beat the game with 60 stars....now shoot for 120 and get the good shit at the end.
no i actually broke up with her which was a big mistake so now we're friends, and i'm working on getting her back. to make things harder she has a boyfriend...things are complicated....*sigh*
