Why the hell is noone making mario threads! ;)

in any case, i wasnt impressed by this one at all. im sure we all agree that more SMG is a good thing, but this just looks so similar, more like an expansion pack then a new game. not that thats a bad thing in itself, but usually from nintendo you can expect a bit more...

alright, time to update this, ill put in a pic of that new rocksuit, looks pretty fun:

and the new cloud suit is revealed:

    I don't give a shit about innovation here. I want more SMG; they're giving me more SMG. I'm more than content. I'm fucking ecstatic.

    If Nintendo wants to sell me the exact same thing with a bunch of new levels that is fine. I am all for more SMG.

    well miyamoto says it was planned to reuse a lot of content form the previous game, luckily the team got so excited that it shoul dbe expected to be 90% new content, with 10% being old levels with new missions.

    I think they have the right idea here. Really, with Mario, we just want more of the same with a few a changes. More platforming goodness, with out any annoying mechanics ,like the water pack, to get in the way. The whole galaxy concept is really the farthest the series can go. I am fine if all of the rest of the games work off this concept.

    As long as the platforming is awesome and the levels unique then I'm all for it. Miyamoto already said 90% of the levels are new and from the video they've already added a couple elements (Yoshi, the platforms that switch when you spin-jump (unless that was just a timing thing), looks like there's Giant/Miniature world).

    I just have to wonder what crazy ideas they have this time.

    I mean, in that trailer alone I saw the interesting looking flip panels. It seemed to be that you flipped them by spinning. That could create some awesome levels.

    I was more surprised by the shadows of Mario thingy. Maybe you have to mimic them exactly?

    I sort of hope that this game has more open Mario 64-style worlds as opposed to the mostly linear stages that the first SMG had.

    Even if it doesn't though I'm sure it'll be great.

    You know what I just noticed in the trailer?

    Winged Goombas.

    Those weren't in SMG that I recall.

    I also can't help but wonder what kind of story they're gonna cook up for this one. They already did the peach thing with the first game.

    ...and what, no pointer for collecting star bits?

    Same here, though I'm betting it'll be more linear again.

    I guess Nintendo finally knows a good thing when it finds something. SMG2 should bring some better stuff while still being familiar to people who have played the first one.

    I thought the motion controls in the first one sucked pretty bad, but this one looks much more interesting. It seems IR controls are for Yoshi only this time. I applaud this and hope they remove starbits because other than feeding star people starbits, they weren't integral to the game's design.

    This one already shows the player jumping and then quickly moving the IR cursor to a point for Yoshi to grab. It's like Lost Woods but in 3D space. Very, very cool. I hope they expand on the idea.

    Hard to tell, but that was pointer control for yoshi's tongue, which I'm loving.

    And this reminded me again how good the SMG music was.

    One of the clips of some snow world looked pretty damn big. Much bigger than anything in the first one anyway.

    I think it would be cool if some galaxies had a linear design and some had the bigger, more explorative worlds of 64/Sunshine.

    Star bits were useful in some stages (blowing up mines, knocking enemies away, etc.), but they were most useful for shopping. The increased-life mushroom was a goddamn steal for 30. Especially if you were down to one life point.

    You mean using the pointer, or actual motion controls (spinning)? I'm curious because the pointer worked flawlessly and the spinning is the only thing I can think of that made you waggle. What about that sucked?

    Depends on if you count Yoshi's Island as a Mario platformer or not, I guess. Otherwise unless I'm forgetting something it hasn't happened since the NES.

    Loved SMG. More of the same would be just swell.

    I do not however see the point of reusing old levels, even if they have new objectives. If it's going to only be 10 percent, would it really be that hard to create new levels for that extra 10 percent as well? It just seems pretty lazy, and it would be worth it to put forth the extra effort to make it 100 percent new.

    But that's just me. Still, I am happy, just not jazzed.

    Who said they're using old levels? I assumed they meant that the 10% is the stuff they wanted to be in SMG but had to be left out, and they were having so much fun with it that they kept adding new shit until they had a fully-fledged sequel on their hands.

    By all means correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the impression I got.

    That is a pretty bizarre interpretation of "10% old stuff"

    Well, there was the manta ray surfing. Also the part where you had to use the remote like a joystick to control Mario on the rolling ball.

    But I thought those parts worked pretty well.

    The design. It felt very uninspired to me. Most of what was done is easily translated to a regular controller. I think the Wii can do better.

    Functionally, it worked fine. I had no problems.

    The new game seems to be more up my ally. Controlling two entities (Mario and the cursor) and having them work together in 3D space is cool design that hasn't really been done before. It's the kind of stuff I bought the Wii for.

    Because it costs less and makes them more money to poop out lots of low-quality games that get bought regardless.

    I had the opposite experience. The ball rolling came naturally, the ray surfing... well... that was a bit more tough on the second course.
