I actually think this game is shaping up so nicely, that it could really help to drive system sales. I have no idea what the doom and gloomers are talking about.

Judging from the similar thread on GAf, i'd say the doomers and gloomers are just a vocal tiny minority. No need to worry, it'll do good:)

The game looks great, in a visual sense as well as gameplay wise. I do fear that the slow sales of the WiiU have contributed to a much lower level of hype though, as opposed to when Super Mario Galaxy released on the Wii.

Also the name...ugh. Super Mario 3D World is such a bland, non-descriptive title. Who comes up with these things? IMO, Nintendo really needs to abandon the use of words such as "super" and "world" for their Mario titles, especially when they are just carelessly tossed in as though created by a random word generator.

It will sell beyond bad.

The levels look empty, unlike in the other 3D Mario games where you can find a coin here or there. Enemies lack detail hardcore. I am also not fond of the pro-feminism direction the game takes by making Peach a playable character instead of making her the victim who needs to be rescued in order to be stuffed back into the kitchen.

She has never been in the kitchen. Her role is to be saved kidnapped by Bowser, and scream "Mario" every time.

 

OT: Ok, I already learned. This is how my initial reaction's post readed back in the E3.

I'm sure it will be bundled with a Wii U. Maybe not at first, but at some point it will be. It's going to sell like crack to... Well, it's gonna sell GREAT!



Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.

I think there´s nothing to discuss here... every main Mario game sells a lot and it won´t be different with this one, specially now that we will have a full 3D Mario with chaotic multiplayer.

Expect it to sell as much as NSMBU for the same period of time and keeping looooong legs.

Now, discussing personal opinions about the trailer is one thing, discussing the potential of sales of a game is something completely different. Some people doesn´t seem to notice this.

So where do you think she is baking the cakes for Mario? It's pretty evident where she does it, especially because the player gets to do it in Paper Mario.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

She probably has Toad slaves to do her job. She baked the cake specifically for a fat Shy Guy, I guess is some kind of fetish.

As Osed pointed, slaves. She is busy flirting with Bowser.

And Luigi, Toon Link and Link in Smash.

Many of the backgrounds are almost identical to NSMBU. It re uses a lot of the textures, backgrounds, and enemies from NSMB, NSMB2, NSMBWii, NSMBU, and SM3DL. The style is heavily fatigued IMO. 


Sorry but.........are you quite sure you actually know what you're talking about?

Wow I hate to say it, but they really look alike


Some people seem to have a really hard time telling art style and actual graphical fidelity apart.

Yes, the ART STYLE (IE the same basic bright, cartoon Mario look) is similar.

 

But the actual graphics are far better, and trying to argue that is about as absurd as trying to argue that CoD on Wii looks the same as CoD on PS3.

The actual polygonal structures, the textures, the lighting, the particle effects, the animations, you name it, all look far better. Not just in these still pictures, but more particularly in the trailer. The fact that you think (if you're being serious and not trolling) they look alike is a testament to just how good the SD graphics on Galaxy and Galaxy 2 looked. But if you earnestly can't tell the different in graphical fidelity, sheer quality, between the two, I'm afraid you need to get your eyes checked. Cheers.
