Pupito commented on Feature: Wario is Missing?:

The missed opportunity here is not that Mario and Luigi are the playable characters but that Wario is NOT the villain. The had an opportunity here to differentiate this title even further from NSMBU by making Wario the villain and they totally whiffed on a no brainer. That being said, I hope they continue on with the coin rush DLC because I think its excellent, and hopefully they'll have a Wario themed pack complete with an End Boss.

Pupito commented on Hands On: Is New Super Mario Bros 2 DLC Worth ...:

I guess $7.50 is a touch pricey for 9 new levels, and, yes, Coin Challenge Pack A is indeed a little bland, but only because the Gold Rush Pack and the Nerve Wrack Pack are arguable better than anything else in the entire main game. The first level of Gold Rush could very have been the first level of the main game, and it would have been better for it. Nowhere in the game do you get to have fun with the Gold Flower in abundance but this pack really delivers, and with great design to boot. Coin Pack A is good, but doesn't have a a cohesive theme as the other two. The Nerve Wrack Pack takes the cake. I spent the whole weekend trying to beat it, and finally did late Sunday night. Great old school Mario challenge delivering exactly what the hard core fans have been clamoring for for years. Nintendo is on to something if they can deliver a main game for a wider audience and then pump out these super tough DLC challenges for all us All-Stars!

Pupito commented on Talking Point: The Possibilities of New Super ...:

I wholly support this enterprise. I also appreciate it took Nintendo so long to get to this point because they err on the side of delivering a fully polished game first. Nevertheless there are consumers who have completed the challenges of the game and are willing to purchase more content. And here's why its awesome: Nintendo can now cater to different audiences. By offering the 3 packs they offer levels for beginners, intermediates, and Mario All-Stars! I for one am thrilled because from a larger business perspective I understand why Nintendo has kept the difficulty of its 2D Mario games down, but talented Mario players are now given the chance to take on true "hardcore" challenges via DLC. This is a win win situation for everyone. Day one buy. Now if we could only get new Mario Kart 7 courses....

Pupito commented on Review: The Legendary Starfy (DS):

This game is a bonafide masterpiece. True, its not very difficult for hardened veterans, but it's got so much charm and character, and the marine platforming gameplay is pure bliss. Starfy has a pretty diverse move set, and he's secretly my favorite Nintendo character! I just hope they either translate the earlier games or continue with the franchise. A 3DS or Wii Ware game would be sublime!

Pupito commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS):

Just picked it up and I'm blowing through it. How anyone can complain about this game is beyond me. It's the most refined I've ever seen the formula, plus its got co-op for dual 3DS' and it looks fantastic in 3D. And the Coin Rush adds a really awesome amount of replay value - and to think that we're going to get new DLC...? This is amazing ladies & gentlemen, and a true service to the fans. Miyamoto said early on that they're going to have to keep producing both 3D and 2D Mario...but I didn't realize that would be the case for both handhelds and consoles each! They're giving us a the classic style, and innovation is right around the corner. It ALWAYS is with Mario! Keep the faith!

Pupito commented on Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol:

Playing through this game now. Never played the first Chibi Robo but my friend loved it and I found this in GameStop over the weekend. It IS a bit repetitive, and the graphics are a bit dated but...WOW. Inspired gameplay! This needs a 3DS sequel STAT. Another fantastic first party franchise.

Just beat the main quest for this title which unlocks a navigational over world where you hunt down jewels. This is without a doubt one of my favorite Nintendo games. I can't believe this is not localized.
