    talking about the need for demo play at times reminds me of when I was playing one of the King's Quest games back in the day...I think it was three or four...can't remember.

    Toward the end you come across a yeti that'll kill you good, and the only way past him was throwing a pie in his face and knocking him off the cliff. The only problem was that if you passed up the pie earlier or worse yet, ate it...then that's it, you're screwed and have to start over from the beginning.

    I mean who makes games like that!?! I think I nearly broke my computer.

    It's been a long, long time but I remember that the Hitchhiker's Guide game that I mentioned, if you didn't feed something to a dog at the very start of the game, much, much later in the game that dog would eat you and the rest of the miniature fleet you had joined.

    You also hat to possess "tea" and "no tea" at the same time. This was accomplished by removing the logical part of your brain if I recall.

    I kinda wish they would've employed a more stylistic approach to the visuals (yoshis island), but having more 2D Mario platforming is always welcomed. The addition of multiplayer is what really sells this, I'm just hoping that having DS quality graphics means they're packing a hell of a lot of content onto this disk.

    Also they would be silly not to include Mario 2 type character traits with special abilities. Nothing I've seen would indicate they're going to do this but fuck, they really should.

    I still fear that the short pause when someone gets an item/dies/whatever will be jarring and become annoying really, really fast (in multiplayer, that is).

    I don't think it will really be that much of a problem. It reminds me of certain SNES games where the game would start to slow down due to too much on the screen.

    Megaman X comes to mind. All this ever did was give me more reaction time, and never really became bothersome, as it always only lasted about 1-2 seconds.

    If it was a hardware limitation it would be one thing, but to be going out of your way to program things like that boggles the mind.

    It seems like a minor problem, especially if you are conscious of what other players are doing. The problem is that if its a really tough level I want to just worry about me, and not my other fucktard friends. It's just not fair to be punished for other players fucking up. Sure, it only happens for a quick moment, but in these types of games it can be life or death.

    What makes you think they went out of their way?

    I would imagine the code was somewhat ported over from the DS version, and that was just leftovers.

    It's a Mario staple, the brief pause for changing into a more (or less) powerful form. I'd be more worried how it would feel without it. I imagine they've probably tested it both ways.

    Oh, and one more vid:

    Unless it's only present on early new mario bros ds cards, there isn't any apparent slowdown in the multiplayer gameplay, I've been playing quick battles of it every few weeks. Smooth gameplay made the battles enjoyable, and even if it was only 2 players, I think a pause would have bothered me as much as watching those videos pauses with 4 players.

    I *really* hope they let you use GC controllers, because the 4 player feature just ain't gonna get used if I have to buy 2 more remotes to make that happen.

    Which means, in a way, that I'll have a hard time justifying spending 50$ on this game if at most I can play it 2 player.

    You can play through the entire game single player, you know.

    I'd love to make a necklace out of one of those coins... haven't the slightest idea how, though, shy of drilling a hole through it, and I'd rather not. Do they make things you can... you know, put them in? Like a necklace frame or something?

    No unlocking other characters, just toads. I'm fine with that, too, I've had enough of Wario and Waluigi and the toads are fine characters.

    Awesome box art.
