This movie is a true classic. Sadly, in my book this is one of the better film adaptions of a video game since they are always so bad. I mean...making a live action Mario movie should never have happened. But it did and all things considered, i think they did a pretty good job making the insanely wacky story of Mario into a cohesive, (semi) believable story. I wanna watch it again now!

Im a huge fan of the old arcade brawlers that Code of Princess pays homage to but I agree with most that there just doesnt look like there is much there to justify a purchase...besides the two big reasons most of us see first...

invictus4000 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I'm...just...baffled. And not in a good way.
I agree with some of the above comments that the design looks less than pretty, but that's all well and good. My true problem with this is it's unnecessary, alianating, and just plain insulting to previous 3DS owners. If having the loyalists upgrade to an XL wasn't enough already, the 2DS came along and now, the NEW 3DS. WHAT?? If the NEW is so much of an improvement over the current one, why would developers even care to support the "old crappy" model? And I HATE the idea of games like Xenoblade AND NFC support only being able to run on the NEW. WHY!? This will further confuse the already muddy market Nintendo has made for the 3DS family. I'm just so speechless right now...

invictus4000 commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

It seems to me that the majority of the haters of this DLC are people that are "into" cars. For me, a car exists to get me from A to B. Anyway, I agree with most that this DLC does NOT "break the magic", and in no way puts the players at a disadvantage. It's FREE! Don't like it? Don't download it. Problem solved. I myself think it's kind of cool and while I would never pay for it, will get it since it's free just to have more variation in the game.

I haven't played this but was tempted. Glad I waited because this sounds like the definitive version. And it sounds like the majority vote is that it's a great game and worth the 10 bucks, huh?
On the related note of double-dipping, how cool would it be if you could "sell back" a digital game to Nintendo? Say you pay 10 bucks for a game on the e-shop, then you can have it deleted and gain, say, 5 bucks back in e-shop credit? If a system like that were in place I'd be purchasing twice as many games digitally.
Too bad Nintendo would NEVER do that...:(

@ZachBeacon
THANK YOU! Everyone raves about Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and I have to admit I was once way excited for it too but it's seriously crap! Makes me sad because some aspects of it showed real promise and there were a few great moments but ultimately some MAJOR flaws made the game a deal-breaker for me.

@ejamer My thoughts exactly. Nintendo has always been the master of awesome, outside-the-box ideas that redefine gaming...but still very much struggle to implement and push those ideas all the way through. The double screen concept in the DS or the motion controls on Wii were game-changer concepts (no pun intended) and redifined how we play games. The Wii U Gamepad in my opinion is no different. Fantastic idea. As usual though, I'm still waiting to see its potential fully realized. Amiibo could be great...but I'll believe it when I see it.
