Super Mario Odyssey Moonfinder's Guide

Super Mario Odyssey Moonfinder's Guide

For those last... darn... moons!

Super Mario Odyssey is huge. Whereas previous 3D Mario games had only 120 main stars in them, Odyssey has 999 moons to collect. If you’re still cleaning up on the last few or even if you’re just starting out, these tips might come in handy:

Feel The Rumble

Pay attention to the rumble feature. In most games it’s just there as a flavor thing, but in Odyssey it often means that there’s something hidden below you and that ground pounding can net you some bonus coins or even a moon.

Look For Shines

If something is glowing in Odyssey, then chances are it has a moon in it. If it’s on the ground then ground pound it, but if it’s on something else then you’re probably going to want to throw Cappy at it and hold down the throw button until a moon pops out. No matter where it is though, don’t ignore a shining object because it always means that something good is hidden.

Double Check

Some mission givers have bonus moons to get after their initial moon is given out. If the mission is marked with a trophy on your map, then it probably has a second, more difficult moon to win from it. Sometimes this only appears later on, but it will usually show up eventually so keep checking back with the person who gave the original moon out to see if something new is available.

Also, keep in mind that upon re-entering bonus areas, Cappy will let you know if there’s anything else left to find in them, whether it be moons or purple coins. This is extremely helpful, so pay attention. Most bonus areas have two moons, and a few have more.

Swallow Your Pride

There’s nothing wrong with asking the Hint Toad or the Talkatoo for help finding hidden moons. The Hint Toad shows you where the moons are, and the Talkatoo tells you their titles which can help in figuring out what to do to get them. The Hint Toad costs 50 coins per hint, but other than that there’s no setback at all for using either of them and they’re pretty much mandatory for some of the trickier moons in the game.


When in doubt, try it out. There’s absolutely no punishment at all for looking around, and in fact, the game’s design encourages it. Toss Cappy at everything, talk to everyone, ground pound everywhere, and use the binoculars in each world to scope out the place. The more you explore the more chances you’ll have of finding moons and purple coins too, so get to it!

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year


Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
