The season shows that SMG4 has started to use VEGAS Pro more often with added widescreen and the use of new fonts especially Verdana in later times. The content is still in storyline-comedy based, which means it hasn't been yet devolved into the crazy random type in later seasons. SMG4's starting to use Garry's Mod (Gmod) for the content but mostly used for background at the time.
During this year, a lot of Youtubers has started to appear frequently, although they later has been decreased in appearances due to the fact that SMG4 has decided to focus more on Mario characters.
This season would also began a rapid amount of fan ideas that were requested to SMG4 that he would use in his bloopers. While the requested ideas started appearing around September 2011 during the later episodes of the previous season, it wouldn't be incredibly rapid until this season. Because of this, the amount of ideas that were thought up by Luke himself were only a total of 18 bloopers out of the 50 bloopers in this particular season.
