ignorant and irrelevant? it seems perfectly logical to me. mario games are very unemotional and (obviously) shallow in terms of story. i dont think it would hurt if mario games could go more into detail on the backstories of the characters. seriously, for the past 30 years, all we know about mario and his relationship towards peach is... well, nothing. i think it would good for mario games to actually give us a reason for saving the princess.

any kind of deep story is what the Mario RPG series-es are for, whether it's SMRPG, Paper Mario, or Mario & Luigi. In terms of 2D/3D platformers, all I want is more levels to get through.

to make an example of serious story attempting to enter the Mario platformer universe, the Rosalina story felt horribly tacked onto SMG. It just didn't belong there at all IMO... ugh, too sappy and annoying. I would've understood it if it'd been one of the RPG titles, and i may have even found it quite touching in that context, but as a platformer I just wanted her to shut up and get outta my face -- Mario already has Toadstool, he doesn't need another chick to save. i didn't care where she came from or why she was on the ship, i just wanted to play more levels and find more stars. :3

I find it interesting how divisive this demo is. The game only got a 6 in Game Informer.

corbie kinda mentioned in chat that you'd either love it or hate it. too bad i'm in the latter camp, i was totally ready to like this game :/

@PunnyGuy: Canvas Curse bored me to tears, it felt like one giant gimmick showing off the DS touchscreen. some aspects were far too easy, others were annoyingly difficult for me personally. didn't enjoy it at all, sorry. :3

sorry, i just wasn't a fan of it at all. reminded me too much of why i hated Canvas Curse... by the time i kinda started to get the hang of things, I was already bored. The vines were hard to place/control because I normally write with a pretty steep slant, apparently, and it annoyed the crap outta me that you can't erase vines. :(

are they saying you'd have to send your Wii to the different regional headquarters to get your games back (like if you sent it to the dutch one, they'd restore your dutch games, and if you sent it to the UK one they'd restore your english games, etc.)? because i know i'd totally do that if it meant getting all my games back, lol -- it'd be a pain, sure, but maybe it's worth a shot to get in touch with the UK's customer service and see if they can help you?

'dear' can also mean 'expensive'; that's probably what the OP means. in that context, it's probably because they're decent games that maybe are hard to find in some areas.

@Mickeymac: it's a little late for that, though -- he's already got a working Wii, and he obviously wants those games back. whatever he does after-the-fact is on him, but he needs to get in touch with a supervisor at Nintendo somehow and plead his case. He bought those games fair and square, and at the very least they should be able to give him back what he bought somehow.

perhaps proving that she's not a bounty hunter at all. You collect bounties on people/things in order to make a profit. You don't just do it outta the goodness of your heart or anything, lol; there needs to be adequate compensation for the work you've put into it, and that means a profit must be made.
