    YES!!! YES!!! I will say it sucks that they still haven't fixed all of the boss fights though that was something I was really hoping they would improve this time around but as it is I think I finally have the perfect excuse to try and nab a Wii-U around Christmas.

    Welp, seems I've been proven wrong again, I expected this to be solid, as Nintendo games are always at the very least solid, but it really has come a long way from what it looked like during E3. I STILL feel like it's essentially more of the same, but I'm glad that they did it right, at least.

    The media has got me very excited, I was hoping this game just being "good enough" but it sounds more than that. Also I think its the only 3D platformer we have had this year isn't it?

    Yes, the game improved a lot from how it looked at E3 this year

    More or less, it is more of the same. But its an upgraded true potential build that 3D Land left everybody wanting more of that it could never reach and they just stacked more higher quality work and variety you would expect from a high quality series into it to make it worthwhile and spectacular. Its hard to make a good example, maybe Megaman to Megaman X but im not too sure.

    Glorious, cant wait Awesome to hear it gets challenging Boss Battles vary, i seen some footage and some were really fun looking. And Mario Galaxy 2's Final Boss (while amazing) was too easy, 3D Land beats it even if it was a gloried Tower Climb, it still beat it.

    Just hang in there until around the year 2025 when Mario goes third party and Nintendo aren't in the console business anymore

    Go look up Nintendo's financial status, and tell me if you're really dumb enough to believe that they'll go third party smh

    I know, but I can hope.

    YES!!! I can't wait to play this. This is the staple to gaming this holiday for me. Now I just need to convince myself to buy a Wii-U with the money I don't have.
