The 3DS easily has one of the most consistent and solid offerings this year.

peopel complain of mario milking.
we get 1 mario for every console since the n64, (except smg2)

on ds only 1 2d mario
on 3ds 1 mario 3dland (2d and 3d hybrid)
1 2d mario
and thats it for the entire life of the 3ds

for wii 1 2d mario in the entire life span
and 2 3d mario (which has never happened ever before)

now for wiiu 1 2d mario for its entire life span

and people compare it to COD milking....
cod had mw3 mw2 blops blops 2 waw... on ONE CONSOLE
yes mario had alot of games coming out but they are VERY DIFFERENT not even the same genre
and if they are in the same genre THEY ARE IN A DIFFERENT CONSOLE

Its cuz they will have FOUR versions of NSMB.. I mean sure a few level changes & a couple new power ups are changed around but its THE SAME GAME.. Same thing with COD.. New coat of paint, cpl options, & they call it a new game with a full price tag.. How many paper marios? how many mario games chasing stars? theres no type of evolution there.. The games are quality & run DAMN good but the formula needs to evolve with the times.. I believe it hasnt much because they stuck behind this gen & were limited in what they can do but with wii u, theres no excuse for a game to run the same engine

"there are a few vocal trolls ahem but overall Mario is beloved regardless."

true Mario is beloved but you're a troll yourself as you clearly demonstrated in the Last of Us article.

@CaCl: Ummmm...dude there's tons of Mario games on the wii.

EDIT: Shadow flare beat me to it.

live2play2301d ago

i was talking about 2D/3D MAIN PLATFORMING MARIOS
not mario parties
not mario karts
not dr marios


those come but ONCE IN A CONSOLES LIFE SPAN (yes smg2 was a very rare treat) but once a main mario entry is released THATS IT they wait till the next console generation

did you get it? 2D AND 3D PLATFORMING MARIOS
i know nintendo uses the character alot


nintendo wanted a character that can be used alot.....

You asked why people complain about mario being milked.

And I'm simply showing why people complain about mario being milked.

Expect to see his face in another 15 games this year.

I've made my point.

Merry Milking

@Shadow Flare

Your list is really misleading. Many games in there are duplicates (eg: Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time in 2005 AND 2006, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 in 2006 AND 2007...), in many games in there Mario is only an extra character and his name doesn't even appear on the titles, many games in there are only Virtual Console releases...
