Nintendo needs to quit milking this series for all it's got. Why don't they take the solid game engine they usually have for their mario sports games and make a REAL sports game.

Nintendo has taken all the prestige out of Mario. The only reason Mario Galaxy won't be a juggernaut release is because they've milked him for all his worth. People are just plain sick of seeing Mario, including myself.

Yes, and that is why Mario Galaxy will sell millions

I'm sure it will, but it's sales will pale in to comparison to the Mario games of old, largely in part to games like this. Mario is still popular, but he is no longer a phenomenon like he was in 80s and 90s. Nintendo has crippled their biggest property.

What if Microsoft started making junk like "Halo: Baseball Evolved"? How many records do you think the franchise would break after that? Not too many.

It's at least partially true because during one of those years (like 93 or 94) Mario was THE most recognized fictional character. Now it's like Homer Simpson or Bugs Bunny or something.

    Sdarts Fuck!!! it just came to me, this type of Micro Transactions Match Making (MTMM) based system will mostly be used to explore children and teenagers. And other companies will follow suit. Jesus... (6 minutes ago)

    nostradamus *i mean dead space 2. from people who jumped from the first expecting a same game, felt a bit lukewarm a nd a game that was molding it self for the tropes of that gen. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @asdfg: he, dead space was a perfect pacing game, but it was way more uncharted game, than a resident evil game the first was. different variation, but still awesome. (2 Hours ago)
