STOP WITH THE MARIO GAMES. PLEASE.

Don't get me wrong, I'll probably buy this game -- I love me some Mario RPG -- but this is getting a tad ridiculous. Five of my eight Nintendo 3DS games are Mario-related. I don't need any more in my collection right now.

I love Nintendo, and I love Paper Mario, but this game deserves about a 6.0. The narrative is all but non-existent (which is a serious drawback for any RPG), and the battles have absolutely no point to them without the experience points and level-up mechanic. Really, it's like a 2D Mario game without the fast-paced fun.

Awful. I never thought I'd say that about a Paper Mario game. Heck, I even loved Super Paper Mario.

I'm just happy to have something more to look forward to on the 3DS that isn't Animal Crossing. Also, why isn't this news on the front page, Gamespot? It's the first real game announcement of the year.

Big-budget Zelda game? A new engine? Sounds like a reason to buy a Wii U to me. Now I just need to see the damn thing.

@warhawk-geeby Because you're not the target audience, and because there's more to being part of a minority group than wanting to be part of the "majority" (whatever that even means these days). People falsely believe this notion that all minorities want to be straight WASPs, which is an incredible misconception. Minorities are more than disenfranchised groups of people, they boast a culture of their own; this is nothing more than an innocent way of gathering like-minded people. Get off your high horse.

@SSJ4Goku2 @DrTrafalgarLaw Because they're a business? Because they're recognizing that they have customers who fall in minority categories? Because it's good PR?There is nothing wrong with them doing this. I'm baffled as to how anyone could even take any issue with Microsoft taking part in something like this. Any financial support for this is a drop in the bucket for them.

I still don't understand why Nintendo is so mum about pricing. The launch date is one thing, considering they may or may not be having manufacturing problems, but they clearly know (and have known) how they'll price the system for a while.

Nintendo, if you want a successful launch, you need to get the hype train in gear pronto.

I think Sony has an image problem. Third-party developers are less afraid to make products for Nintendo portables because I don't think they feel they have as many limits. With Sony's robust graphics on the Vita, comes an expectation that developers will take advantage of those perks, but those are also costly perks that don't always cater well to a portable platform anyway. For example, I think a third-party developer would be more likely to develop a 2D game on the 3DS than the Vita, which is not only cheaper to do, but more attractive to Nintendo's audience. In that sense, Assassin's Creed is a terrible showcase for third-party developers, because when they see a game like that, I'm sure they see dollar signs and big risks.

I think he underestimates the numerous other problems consoles face. Microsoft and Sony prolonged their life cycles, more likely, because they realize they may not have a user base as bulky as their current one if they move on to the next generation in a hurry, with the way mobile games are rising. Call of Duty wouldn't sell half as many units with a new system, for the obvious reason that a fraction of the people would have access to the game.

@Linaxel Yeah, enough faith to put old games on the platform that don't cost them a lot of money to develop.
