If other companies dared to bait and switch the core gameplay of their franchises like Nintendo did with 64 to Galaxy they'd be flamed to death.


I'm not exactly sure what this has to do with what I said.

It's nothing like 64/Sunshine and can't be used as a word to stand in for it.

I never said that.  I just said that Galaxy was made with Sunshine and 64 in mind.  So the next singleplayer 3D Mario game will have Galaxy in mind when being made.  So your point really doesn't make much sense with what I was trying to say.
All I was doing was saying why he only talked about Galaxy.

What makes me angry is he essentially confirmed that this game is focused on multiplayer, and it's only being made because they want super easy Mario.

Fuck that Nintendo. No way in hell I'm buying 3D world now, you don't need to make everything for moms and old people, you have actual fans.

3D World > Galaxy 3 for me.


for me as well.  actually more than any 3d mario to date. 

IMO, 64 > Galaxy > Galaxy 2 > Sunshine

I haven't played 3D Land yet but likely will in the future. 3D World looks like it'll be better than all of them.



Proper single player Mario title confirmed. I can relax now.

I have nothing against 3d world but I'm sick of the emphasis on multiplayer...in my day we didn't need that! I know it's the trend but it's one I'd rather nintendo ignored.

i got to play it at best buy.  It was pretty sweet.  It fixes everything i haven' t like about 3d marios.  You're playing through levels instead of trying to collect stars, and you have multiple powerups that you can actually use throughout levels as opposed to being set pieces or puzzle pieces. Playing with 4 people was a blast and the boss battle was less visually appearling than galaxy boss battles, but alot more challening than any of them as well.  Good time.



Lol at "openess of Galaxy games".

No, that was effectively 3D Land/World Lite before 3D Land/World existed. Model after 64 and Sunshine instead please.

If Nintendo can somehow find a way to properly reproduce the magic of a classic Mario 2D title in a vast 3D world, then I'm all for them trying.

Let's see what they come up with.

Isn't EAD Tokyo divided into 2 teams? 1 for handhelds (3D Land) and 1 for home consoles? I'm starting to think they actually have a "proper" 3D Mario in the pipe lines, but rushed this game after seeing the success of 3D Land...

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

@bolded: You're right, it was - but for me that style for Mario in 3D suits the franchise better.

Super Mario 64 will forever live on as a masterpiece because of its place in gaming history but Sunshine is an example of why continuing the open world formula for 3D Mario isn't liked as much by many of the original fans. It ends up feeling more like a Mario adventure rather than a Mario platformer.

I say keep the more linear "Galaxy style" for 3D Mario and leave the 3D open world adventure structure for Zelda.
