Sticker Star was a HUGE letdown. I've loved every single Paper Mario game and every Mario & Luigi game. All have been classics...but then there was Sticker Star on 3DS...could and should have been brilliant....was ultimately a waste of time and a massively shocking letdown seeing as they had a stellar track record up to that point. It was kind of like Pixar when they released Cars 2...up to that point Pixar hadn't made one true dud, then it released 3 lackluster films in a row.

Good, I'm glad stuff like this is getting leaked early because stuff like this isn't worth a lot of their time during the Digital Event. They only have so much time and these "meh" games don't need to steal the show from the bigger announcements.

P.S. This being Nintendo's 3rd year having a Digital Event I have to say I prefer these to the stage shows now even though I didn't think I would back when they first announced they were doing this in 2013.

The stage shows I'm sure, cost way more money, and there is a much bigger chance of there being some kind of oops moment during a live event. Also, and maybe this is just me, these stage shows can be SO corny and lame at times. When you have developers come out and jump around the stage it's just embarrassing. Also when you have content announced and barely anyone cheers or claps that is pure egg on the company's face.

Finally, these digital events are, in a way, proof that Nintendo, at times, jumps into the future before anyone else. I doubt 10 years from now that anyone will continue to do live stage shows. It just makes much better sense from a financial standpoint and a marketing standpoint to have a taped presentation and then have people go hands on with your product on the show floor.



ddd116 commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I don't know about this decision. Look I am happy to get the 3DS version this summer...that's awesome! However, the Wii U is the system that needs it the most and they should have focused all their resources on getting that one out first...also, after playing the 3DS version for months what is going to be the incentive for those who don't have a lot of cash to throw around to get the Wii U one?

I mean I will...but I'm just looking at this from a numbers standpoint.
