:dunno

Anyway, can't wait to play some Wonder today and wash the mediocre taste of Sonic out of my mouth.

I was just kidding obviously, I don't really feel like the voice acting adds anything though.

And I do dislike the fact the characters all play the same, I don't understand why.

Game seems good, 8.5 seems decent.

It's super-creative and if what I've played of the first world keeps up, it's a 10 easily. 

I do wish the characters all played differently -what's the point in having all those characters and they're all the same- but it's good to see that you can get abilities to equip and switch between.

After all these years, they still can't top the original Mario game, Super Mario Bros 2.

I'd get Wonder, but I still haven't played NSMB Wii U and its expansion.
...despite owning it since the Wii U launch  :cry

3d Mario is day 1 for me, but I've kind of lost interest in 2d Mario. It's mechanically good, but it just all feels the same to me after all these years. Mario Maker 2 was enough 2d Mario for a lifetime for me.

I couldn't wait and just bought it anyway. It just looked so fun in the DF review. Don't watch that you'll instantly buy it :mario

This is why Wonder is good- it ditches a lot of the NSMB stuff and has a different feel.

Wonder is pretty good. Itís the upgrade the NSMB franchise has needed since 2010.

Wonder was really good, it felt like a successor to SMB3 in a myriad of ways. Highlight for me was the desert castle zone, there seemed to be hidden areas and stages all over the place in that area.

My only issues were the mediocre boss battles and that the challenge level was pretty low for most of the game - the only sections that really tripped me up were:

Special Stage 2 where you had to do some walljumps on small blocks that would disappear in time with the music, as well as the postgame badge marathon

I have played all the NSMB games and in my head they all blur together. Show me a level and I couldnt tell you which game its from.

Makes me want to wait on Wonder

Mario RPG is devoid of all the magic of the original, but it's a fine remake I guess.

They give you the Signal Ring (the item that makes a noise when theres a hidden chest) immediately during the tutorial so now I'm forever triggering my OCD right away, instead of after Valentina.

So far the new music isn't as good either.

At least you can change the music back to the old soundtrack. I wish it had one of those remake/original toggles like the Monkey Island, Halo and Diablo 2 remasters had. Or just include a rom of the SNES version as an unlockable.

watching the trailer I got the feeling this would be the case. the developers seemed to not understand the charm of the original and just redid the graphics

Also I did the 100 jumps and got the Super Suit for the first time. I did it on "Breezy" mode but I did some research and I'm not sure there's actual proof it affects the timing so I'm taking the dub anyway

Also Metroid Prime Remastered was $40 but this was full price, lol

prime remake looked great, but it also seemed to lose some of the atmosphere of the original. I saw parts that used to be dark lightened up to show off the new graphics. maybe the darker parts were there to hide things in the original, but it did more than hide things.

Nah Prime Remastered is great, enjoyed it and it looks and runs great. I don't think it lost anything imo. Except the annoying Chozo Artifact hunt

Oh yeah, forgot about that one. Wonder if it's on sale since it's a bit older?

Need to grab that and Wonder and Mario RPG.

That rhythm stage is the only time I dropped below 90 lives. In part because I sacrificed three to her the purple coins before attempting to complete it.

I never played NSMB2 on 3DS, but itís interesting how there are no flying power up. Badges can replicate some, like the gliding hat is the squirrel suit, the spin boost is the propeller hat.
