Going by previous comments on the philosophy of design that Nintendo uses I imagine they viewed them as a sort of high level skill type thing; let the kids muddle through and enjoy getting the basic shines, let others grind for 100 coins and others still showcase control skills with the blue coin challenges.

Also others playing along at home if you never looked into the various glitch play things people do for this game I highly recommend it

Yeah, SMS has some pretty fun glitches. I like to complete stages as out-of-order as possible. In fact, I collected to 100-coin shine in Delfino Plaza before I had either boat access or the hover nozzle. I wasn't about to go through all that again.
It strikes me as strange how all the glitches are more or less easy to pull off. I prefer SM64 to Sunshine, but I can't consistently BLJ to save my life.

About the 100-coin shines, that makes sense. Still, some of them are a bit ridiculous... like in Gelato Beach, where you have to break each watermelon ten times AND turn in the two smaller ones AND collect the loose coins in the stage AND still kill a good chunk of the Cataquacks.
They add a little nugget of crap on an otherwise decent game.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.
