  1. Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    Too true It was the whole point of Paper Mario, that it was a funny, unique RPG. I never played the one on the N64, but I adored The Thousand Year Door and loved spending time in that world, finishing off as much as I could, it was just so much fun to play I wasn't in any rush to complete it I remember even loving the music on the "load a saved game" screen so much I'd let it play for ages while I assembled all the munchies for a huge gaming session on it!! Have you played the N64 version? What's it like in comparison to TTYD? Worth a purchase?

    2010? If we're talking about the 3DS (and since we're already well into the second half of 2010) then I assume you mean you think there'll be a drought towards the end of 2011 ...? For the 3DS? I don't think there will. Not all games mentioned will be launch games so we'll have plenty to look forward to all year long with the 3DS. As for the possibility of 10 launch games, no I don't expect them all to appeal to me but I'm confident there'll be a couple (and that's the amount I'll buy with the machine) for me, and everyone has different tastes and I know Nintendo have to appeal to everyone, and I'm happy with that. If you did indeed mean 2010 then that's a shame, as I personally feel there's plenty to enjoy for all tastes coming over the next few months.
  3. Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    Yes. These are after all videogames. It didn't matter to me that it was trying to have a similar kind of plot etc (they could've done that in any other Mario game like Mario&Luigi for example) the game just wasn't Paper Mario. I'll actually wait for the reviews in nGamer now, a mag I trust, to see if they've kept away from that game and made a proper PM game.
  4. Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    I'm so glad to see the stage back again for fights, as I'm hoping for a proper return to a proper Paper Mario game. I absolutely adored the GCN one, lost myself in it completely and it was just hilarious! But the Super Paper Mario game I never really liked. It was like Diet Paper Mario. The 2D-3D-2D effect was cool but the game itself just wasn't a proper PM game. This time though it looks like I'll be purchasing this one as soon as it's released! Can't wait! As for the sticker thing, I'm sure Nintendo have that sorted. It'll probably just float down to the 3D landscape, like you're playing inside a big cardboard box and are placing the sticker on the floor. Or it could be as simple as it won't change from previous games. The stickers themselves could be like those hologram stickers you used to get as kids, so they're still flat stickers but their content is 3D. Can. Not. Wait.

    With the quality of games seemingly so good, I'd be happy with 10 to choose between!
  6. 3DS Console Discussion

    From what I recall of E3 they made it very clear that this was a new feature so I'd say it's not going to end up like anything on the Wii. They were quite specific about that, that you'd have content when, for example, you woke up in the morning (after your own sleep mode ) ready to use, if you decide to use those services of course.
  7. 3DS Console Discussion

    I dunno... My friends and I find the Wii extremely easy to use online and am addicted to Mario Kart online. Can't wait for what they've planned with the 3DS Depends what each individual game does in its tag mode. They have said that some games will automatically download content for you in the 3DS. And at E3 I remember them saying that, talking about the 3DS system itself rather than individual games, you could wake up some mornings and find fresh new content just waiting for you to use. Sounds good to me!

    It's not going to be an extra 100euros, as stated here it sounds like at the very most it'll be is around the same price as the Wii was originally, the £180 mark. I feel that's completely justified given what this little machine can do. Saying that, given how much of a leap forward this is compared to the very original DS I wouldn't mind paying £200 to be honest You're right as well to point out the backwards compatible bit, it's very reasuring, I think we all assumed it was going to be built in, it is Nintendo after all, not Sony. But yeah it's nice to see it in writing! As well as the great idea of being able to multitask, having the wireless button on the console is a relief! I'm so fed up of loading a game on the DSi and then having to come out of it and go through menus just to turn wireless comms on or off. And that Mii software in that video is just... spectacular!! That's amazing tech! Can't wait to finally have Mii's that look like the people I so desperately try to make

    The games they're showing are the "release window" titles, which means they're due out within the first 6 months (or is it 12?) of the system retailing.

    Have to say the more I see that video the more I like the fact the analogue slider is grey on the black version. Maybe a lighter blue one on the blue 3DS would be better for that version? However, the grey and black two-tone is a thing of absolute beauty, and the shade of the blue one is lovely. Never know, the grey slider on the blue might grow on me too...

    You mean transferring your downloaded wares from your DSi? That's been included. And if you mean can you transfer it if you buy another 3DS, they've said you can if you're replacing your system. They won't let you transfer it from one system to another if you're wanting to give something you've bought to friends though, I can't see that working in a business model, but I'd say there'll be the gift option like the Wii Shop.

    If I know Nintendo they'll have taken this into consideration as far as working on their battery life goes.

    You don't have to have a specific game inserted either. So say you have 4 (random number just) games that all have a tag mode in them, and the first time you're playing them you activate it, that info will be stored in the 3DS. This means, when you're walking about your 3DS can send and receive data from all 4 of those games, even if you don't have any of them actually in the system. They detailed this at E3 I think. I'm really looking forward to this system as it gets around that problem of not running into anyone with the same game plugged in, a problem that the original DS had. When you think of the amount of DS's there are about (I see them being used everywhere!), and the fact that the 3DS could end up being just as - but probably more - popular, this new feature could rock!

    Holy mother of god!! That looks immense! I'm not usually one for 1-on-1 beat 'em ups but that could very well convert me!! I am so pumped for this system! Really, Feb/March can't come soon enough! Those games are, for the most part, looking awesome, and then when we get a hold of them we have to remember we'll be seeing them in proper non-glasses 3D! Okay, need to calm down.... And for the first time since the GC I'm actually hyped for an Anuimal Crossing game! That says something!
