SNES games would get me to subscribe so hopefully that's a sonnet thing rather than later

@Grumblevolcano I am kinda surprised by some of these titles for sure, such as FIFA 18 and not FIFA 19 though I guess being pretty much the same game caused a lot of people to not buy the latest release. Also, Pokemon Quest is on this list? Isn't that the mobile game?

Forgot how much I love New Super Mario Bros U.

What an incredible game. Not quite on the level of DKC but, an easy 2nd right behind it.

One might almost forget how amazing this game is given the hive minded hate-bandwagon trouncing all over it lately.

And then Tales of Vesperia alongside it... it’s fantastic. It has that Lost Odyssey style of “weapons have skills, and by using the weapons you can fill up the XP bar for it and learn the skill permanently” mechanic. I love that. Just been bouncing back and forth between these two, both of them A+++++ video games.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

It's nothing I haven't played before.

I mean that in both I have it on Wii U, and my God, this game is both good, solid platforming, and the most derivative thing I have played in a long time and it is hard to explain why, even without the other New games existing.

It just feels sterile.

@Knuckles-Fajita I remember playing New Super Mario Bros U when it first released and it just bored the hell out of me. It just felt by the numbers, as if Nintendo knew it would sell well so why put the effort in. I don't know what plans Nintendo have for the future of 2D Mario games but I hope they go right back to the drawing board.

The best NSMB game was Super Mario Maker.

@FragRed I think it has one of the better flight power ups at the very least.

But everything else was very...let's move slightly closer to Mario World but not do much else.

...Spiderman is an exclusive cause well, at it's root, it was part of the deal they made with letting Marvel use Spiderman in the MCU.

That still baffles me to this day. Sony should thank the gods on their bare knees that they're even allowed to use Spiderman, seeing as it's not their intellectual property, but Marvel's. The fact that they even got their hands on it, or how the hell Marvel could have allowed them to do so, is completely beyond me.

Far as I'm concerned, Marvel should have just put their foot down, hard. Give back the Spiderman IP, or we revoke all your rights to make media and/or merchandise with him in it. The franchise should simply come back to Marvel entirely, much like how they got their other IP back from Fox after the merger.

@FragRed NSMB2 did launch the same year as NSMBU. Early Wii U era can pretty much be summed up by goal based platformer burnout. MK8 was the start of a change from that.

I'd imagine that's why we've gotten very few 2013 Wii U games on Switch so far. The variety was very limited with Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Wind Waker HD being the main variety.

@FragRed 3D Mario is in the exact same slump. Odyssey was the same old 3D collect-a-thon with a fresh coat of paint.

PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

@ThanosReXXX they can't do that because of the contract. They need to either re-buy the license or let them use it as they see fit. Otherwise they would end up with a law suit or worse.

Btw, they have already sold back the license for movies, but apparently not the game rights.

“By the numbers”

When “by the numbers” is by the numbers of the gold standard of Mario platforming, I welcome it with open arms. There’s only been 4 Mario 2D platformers released since the retro era, and NSMBU is easily the best one. I love it’s “by the numbers” style. That’s exactly what I want every now and then. It’s only a bad thing when it’s over done. And since I haven’t played a NSMB game in the better part of a decade, I could go for a little “by the gold standard Mario numbers”.

It’s just good, classic, nostalgia driven fun. Finding the three coins adds just the right amount of challenge and replayability as well.

And that’s not even considering New Super Luigi U, which really ramps up the difficulty.

Top of all that you have the challenge mode, coin blast mode and one other I forget. It’s jampacked with classic Mario platforming goodness. The gold standard. Love the crisp, modern look but with the Super Mario World style blueprint.

Mario Maker was neat, but I’d take this game over Mario Maker any day of the week. MM got really boring really fast unless you were actually designing stages, which is a totally different type of entertainment all together. Fantastic fun, but a different kind of entertainment. If you wanted solid platforming, Mario Maker was... well, tbh, it was garbage. There are only so many trap-ridden user created stages I can stomach. It could be fun trying them out and seeing the craziness, but that wore thin... and quick (although I’d like to point out I created some immaculate stages with very solid feedback, eh ehm). Whereas the level design in NSMBU is actually balanced and engaging. Designed by professional developers.

@electrolite77
Ah that sucks. It’s sold out now anyways.

also
Interesting to note Tales of Vesperia is crushing it on Switch. Currently #47 on Amazon Best Sellers in Video Games, while the PS4 version is #124 and X1 is #1,125

I think this will reaffirm confidence in Switch sales for Bandai Namco. If games like Tales can outperform even the PS version, with like 1/3 of the install base... that bodes very well for further Switch support. And as for Xbox... yikes. I’m surprised they’re still bringing games to that system. Square Enix has slowed their Xbox support for JP games, and Namco may do the same soon. Or not. If it’s super easy to port, and they just run the game to the multi platform engine and spend a week cleaning it up... maybe it’s still worthwhile.

@Therad But that's exactly what I'm talking about: it's the world upside down. Spiderman is a Marvel character/IP, NOT a Sony character. It annoys/angers me just as much as countries "owning" and displaying art pieces that aren't made by their native artisans/artists, but simply because they bought it, the country of origin hasn't got any rights over them.

The same happens here. It isn't right, and except for the game, which is actually good, Sony hasn't done a whole hell of a lot of good with the Spiderman franchise, since the original movie trilogy. So, in a correct scenario, it should be Marvel licensing out the IP to Sony, so that they are allowed to make games with it, instead of Sony "allowing" Marvel to make movies with it. It's insane...

Whereas I am a massive fan of the mechanics of 2D Mario games, I have never really liked the aesthetics of the 'New' ones. Don't get me wrong, for 3D Mario games, it's great. The closer those get to looking like rendered covers on N64 and Gamecube game cases the better. For 2D games, I prefer something more stylish and pixel based. Like World or Yoshi's Island. Something with a bit more artistry to it. Like the new Wonderboy even. I don't need fluid animation for turning. I am fine with a sprite flip, as it feels more responsive. (Unrelated but it's why I find Rockstar games clunky)

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.
