    I knew it was a platformer... hence why I avoided it (maybe it is a good platformer?). I thought the combat system in the first two games, while easy to pick up, took some thought and strategy to master (esp. trying to win crowd favor and such) without being "stupid difficult". My wife adores those two games.

    Yes. That movie has some interesting stories behind it. Like how the husband/wife director duo sucked so much.

    The movie always sickened me because Luigi got the girl.

    It's actually really fun, though it's a platformer rather than a JRPG so it's a different type of game than it's predicessors. That said, it was better than Mario Galaxy.

    Speaking of Mario Galaxy... I was disappointed with how easy it was and the recycling of content in the game.

    There's no doubt about it though, Mario is one of the most whored game series out there. I'm sure someone has posted a long list of just how many Mario games there actually is, and also the appearances he makes in other Nintendo games.

    I'm pretty torn on Dorkly. Sometimes their stuff is funny (and pretty good), sometimes its dumb, sometimes its just annoying.

    Their article section in particular is pretty bad, though. They actually think VGCatz is a good Webcomic and their "Top Lists" are horrible.

    They also seem to have quite the dislike towards Obsidian. "Well F:NV is good, but it doesn't hold a candle to the perfect F3" and "Oh my God, Kotor 2 was so horrible compared to Kotor 1"

    That Nintendo was getting somewhat lazy with Mario was apparent when they pretty much said that there were two palette swapped Toads in NSMBWii because putting another character was too much work.

    Yes. They're publishing awesome games, while Nintendo went into toy manufacturing. I know which one I prefer.

    Hilariously little changed from the original war. Sega still does what Nintendoesn't.

    Sega publishes awesome games? Let me look....





    *comes back later:


    Sega still doesn't measure up to Nintendo. Sorry. Other than Total War, and some old Genesis titles, Sega still sucks.

    It's a shame Sonic sucks since Sonic Adventure 2, though. ;__;

    Vanquish, Bayonetta, Anarchy Reigns, House of the dead: Overkill, Valkyria Cronichles. Your opinion is invalid. :smug:
