what?! deliberately inviting people who are just going to crap all over the forums here??? we're not out to change people's minds or to do anything revolutionary by posting here (or at least I'm not, anyway); we just want to talk about games we like and stuff in a place where every other comment isn't 'down with Micro$oft!!!1' or similar.

the good thing about the AA games now is that you can find them used for pretty cheap. have fun with the fifth case... dusting for prints and spraying luminol is surprisingly fun. :)

naah, Iwata was embarrassed to show off the Vitality Sensor because we double-dog-dared him backstage to put it on his middle finger and flip off the audience with it, but he chickened out.

On another site, they said it's not going to be a download version. it's going to be a Retail version for $30. I hope both of them are either dsiware or retail.

they said nothing about it either way at the conference. all they said was that Moving Memo is now Flipnote Studio in America and would be released this summer.

i did find this, where they say they spoke with a Nintendo Rep who said it would be a full retail release (note that the Rep did not outright say 30bux, but the blogger said they would not be so willing to plunk down thirty dollars for it if that came to be the case), but after some of the other things Nintendo Reps have said about/since the DSi's release (the VC DSi kerfluffle and the one that tried to say GBA games would not display properly on the DSi due to the larger screens come to mind), it's pretty clear that they're either (a) clueless or (b) mistaken, and therefore not to be trusted at face value.

edit: i take back what i said before about us knowing or not knowing whether we were getting v1 or v2 -- comparing the old Japanese trailer on YouTube to the new screenshots on Nintendo's E3 site, it looks like what we're getting is the same menu-and-feature-wise (as shown by the extra buttons) as MMv2. i figured that's what they must've been waiting for. :D

But it's Part 1. I seen on the wikipedia page. TBA for the other still :)

actually, we won't know exactly which version it actually is until it's released and someone has a chance to look over the features (if the new ones are available, we can assume it's v2, but if they're not there, it's v1). we can only go on what they said at the press conference at the moment, and at the conference they didn't say 'Flipnote Studio v2', they just said 'Flipnote Studio'. :)

to officially unlock them, you need to have beaten Bowser in Bowser's Galaxy Reactor. with 16 stars left to go, though, you should've done that by now. are comet stars (prankster or purple) the only ones you're missing, or is there another normal or green star left? i found it was easier to get the comet stars by getting all the normal/green ones first, and then after that the comets began to appear one by one (when one appears, play that star until you get it, and then another comet will appear in a different galaxy -- check the big map to see where it showed up if not in the same room) until i'd gotten all 120 stars. i was gonna hafta get 'em all anyway, so i figured i may as well just complete them as the game gives them to you.

once you've got all 120 with Mario, you'll have to beat Bowser's Galaxy Reactor again to unlock Luigi, just so you know (you won't automatically be able to play as him after getting the 120th star).

@Adam: actually, red coins have been around since SMW2: Yoshi's Island.

Also, i would agree with you about local multiplayer being more fun, but if you're like me, it's hard to get together with friends between work and school and blah-blah-blah. it would be much easier to be able to find players online for co-op play... however, at that point you'd have to deal with hackers (like in Mario Kart now). i'd at least like to have the option for online play.

it would be interesting if they had the option to unlock different SMB characters to play as throughout the game as rewards for getting red coins, star coins, etc., like Wario or Waluigi, Peach or Daisy, or enemies like Koopas. i wish there would be physical differences between the characters, though (Luigi jumping higher, Toad being quicker, etc.)... couldn't really tell much about that from the video.

@Zane: true, but you'll also note there was no mention of a Virtual Console DSi at their conference this morning.

it would definitely be cool, though, if you could download packs of new levels via wiiware, or if it included a level editor for user generated content. NSMBWii Kaizo, anyone? that would be awesome/hilarious.

Nintendo said for Wii. They would have specified WiiWare. WiiWare would be a huge mistake. A name as big as Mario's needs to have a store shelf presence to sell the amount of copies Nintendo wants this holiday season.

also, Reggie said before in an interview that they would not bring a mainstream Mario title to Wiiware because they wanted more 'original' and/or 'innovative' titles on the download service, or some other nice way of saying 'no but hell no' to a Wiiware Mario platformer.

Nintendo redeemed as far as I'm concerned. To announce not one but TWO Mario platform games, unheard of and both look promising.

Nintendo, we love you again.

this, and Flipnote Studio/Moving Memo is coming this summer! w00t!

i figured we'd get another NSMB game, but i didn't think they'd put it on the Wii. It looks like fun with four-player action like that. i wonder if we'll be able to play with friends via wi-fi?
