    I got a question. When you download a game, and mario starts running collecting coins, are the coins telling you you've downloaded a part of the game, kind of like a loading bar. I mean, its pretty obvious that once he hits all 3 blocks, you get the game, but is it like, he gets 10 coins, and then hits the 1st block or something like that? post all conspiracy theories here.

    I think it's just a loop cycle and has nothing to do with download rates.

    Having downloaded a bunch of things, I would agree its just a loop that changes based on 1/3's of the download progress. Ill look intensely next time I download something, but I think there is no correlation between download progress and coinage.

    Also how many types of Mario's have you seen when you have downloaded a game? I've seen a Regular Red Mario and a Green Mario. Anyone see any other colors of mario when you are downloading a game?

    Hey don't get me wrong I love conspiracy theories, I'm definitely going to count them next time I download something.

    Yeah I have seen mario and luigi on the download screen before, but thats it up till now.

    The number of coins correspondes to the number of blocks the download uses. that's what I hear anyways.

    You can change the Mario that appears by a series of button combinations. Don't ask me what they are, just experiment!

    I don't know, but it's kind of cool to watch. Better than a progression bar, anyway.

    I found out since I bought my first VC game. I like the Fire Mario because you can shoot fire by pressing A.
