As an old-school gamer, you're right that there's no sense of place or setting. But that's what Mario is all about.

I'm not discounting the quality of games like Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Galaxy, they're all excellent, but Super Mario 3D World is old-school Mario, modernized to be the best it can be.

It begs the question if you've ever even bothered playing any of the sidescrolling marquee Mario games because that's the exact formula Mario 3D World followed. We're literally talking about the father of platforming going back to its roots.

Who cares if he doesn't randomly end up in outer space?

I think A Link Between Worlds is probably the best recent example, especially since Skyward Sword before it was hand-holding for about 4 hours at the beginning.

The game looks horrible, even on the Wii U's standard.

That's my fault. I'm the one that told him to write the review. :-D

Part of the reason is I'm really impressed with Kirby Triple Deluxe. So no, Pierst179, you're not the only one! :)

Wind Waker HD is just a remake. If you've played it before, there's nothing really new to experience unless you want to re-experience it.

I'd recommend just saving the $25 for something you actually really want. There will always be something new to play.

You talked about A Link Between Worlds, and then you jumped to Dream Team.

Zelda came out AFTER Dream Team. You're talking about two very different games with difference audiences.

Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Lego City Undercover, and Rayman Legends (though it's not exclusive) are all very good Wii U titles worth owning.

I don't really mind the sporadic gaps in between releases. As an owner of all three next-gen consoles, I want to save as much as I can.

Definitely agree with Super Mario 3D World. After finishing The Last of Us, I thought that would be it for sure, but Super Mario 3D World really hit on all cylinders.

Here's my top 10. Big year for Nintendo.

The DS is probably the most hardcore system out. That includes the consoles. :|

GameSpot wrote a pretty convincing hands-on preview of the game here. It's developed by Renegade Kid, the development house responsible for Dementium: The Ward--which was an extremely solid First-Person Shooter/Horror game. Probably the best of its kind, especially on the DS. So yeah, I do somewhat look forward to Moon. This coming from someone who usually doesn't play first-person shooters.
