This month's ONM scores include Mario 3D World, which the magazine states "makes everyone else look like they had HD all wrong."
Luckly they jacked that ram way up there and added a lot of features to distract from the fact that titanfall is the only 3rd party game worth playing right now. Ive noticed how fans of the ps have notably just got angrier instead of happier... yet we got millions of nintendo fans no where near this site.... your fanbase is a direct reflection of how bad you are doing.... any one remember the xbox swearing online gamers? im also curious to see if any one other than sony will do any thing worth 8 gigs of ram on that box. yet this mario is so simple that it crushes all other platformers and it is barely using the wiiu to its fullest, the real time glass at that framerate is still impressive. This game is shaping up to be better than galaxy.
"yet we got millions of nintendo fans no where near this site" Why are you here then? Back on topic, this game does look good and I loved 3D Land on the 3DS it'll be one of the first titles I get when the Wii U hits $200.
"Why are you here then?" Dunno about his motivations outside of that post, but I'm here because this site seems to get news pretty quickly. Not to heckle fans of what I don't like, unlike so many others.
buy one right now!
I agreed because of your statement about the game, but if you're going to wait for the Wii U to hit $200, you'll be waiting for a LONG time....
Not sure why people think I'll be waiting a long time for a $200 Wii U Deluxe, when the Deluxe was $350 it could be had for $250 - $275 in a couple sales before the price drop. So now that the deluxe is $300 it's not hard to imagine the same type of discount occurring especially on black Friday when it is competing for attention with the other 2 consoles. But even if it is not offered for that price in a sale, I'll be watching Craigslist where I might be able to find a new model for that price. When the PS3 dropped to $300 I found that model shortly after brand new for $200 on there. But even if that doesn't happen, I have no prob waiting until Nintendos next price cut which should be down to $250 and then a $50 off sale won't be hard to come by when that happens, or the console plus a free new release not bundled with the system, Fry;s Electronics does this quite often.
Why so hostile? There are people out there who just like to play video games, you know. I've got a Wii U and a PS4 sitting happily next to one another, and I'll be playing the hell out of SM3DW all next weekend. It doesn't do any good to be a fan of one platform and scorn the others. I'll have my Wii U for games to play while the PS4 goes through its customary drought, just like my PS3 handled the Wii U's downtime.
Wait,did you just write real Time glass? Wtf
Lol typo real time glass reflection or refraction... its a problem in most videoicards. Why am I here... I game on the ps also and im hoping they can make a game I would like to play. Yet im not wasting money till they do.
I totally agree! It became so bad for Nintendo that companies and fanboys called the Wii-U current gen. In the meanwhile everyone is fighting over 720P and 1080P with lackluster games coming out and the promise of better things to come over time. Excuses,excuses. I just want to game and Nintendo is bringing it!
lol soo true man. amen brotha speak da truth
I feel sorry for people getting xbone or ps4 instead of wii u its way cheaper, free online, gamepad controller you can play with no tv, backward compatible with wii games and controllers, this game, and mario kart 8 early next year im gona stick with ps3 and gran turismo 6 ill get ps4 next year
You summed up my thoughts exactly.
It is way cheaper and yes the online is free but what's it good for if 3rd party developers don't develop for the system and Nintendo is not fully embracing online multiplayer. You gotta play the waiting game until these exclusives get released. ;)
Always with the 3rd party, the world is so fixated on this notion. Mostly every one who comments on this site im for sure has more than one system, you want third party then use your other system for now and stop putting all this negativity towards Nintendo because it's the 3rd party developers who are not contributing is not nintendos fault. Nintendo is a specialty system, there the Disney of gaming, it's the samething over and over but they just have so much quality and Yea there are hiccups along the way but people will buy Nintendo for there 1st party games because there just so good.
Fair enough, but for me the only waiting game I will be playing is one that involves pokemon, mario 3d world, and ALBW. I will play that waiting game until it hurts. Or until the Second Son bundle comes out...
What good is a Ps4 with no 1st or 2nd party developers? A lot of Nintendo's 1st party games are better than any 3rd party game. Wii U has good 3rd party games, the only 3rd party games that arnt on the Wii U are the crap ones. The only real 3rd party game Wii U is missing is GTA 5, apart from that Wii U is all good.
Early review scores for 3d world looking promising . Their was a time when gaming was about having fun and escaping for an hour or so . I can honestly say not since the N64 I have not enjoyed a console as much as the WII U . And that's coming from a Sony fan. Respect Nintendo for remembering what gaming is all about .
i hope you have a wonderful 101 and nano assault neo, highly recommended, plus some others :)
@Downsy72 Seriously I just don't get how people don't see it you're way. Game are about fun and imagination. Your right. I'm a collector and I try to be as unbias on this site as possible but as soon as some one sees the profile pic they immediately call me a fan boy because people hate to that the truth, honestly systems ate about first party Microsoft sony are a shadow of what they use to be,people complain that Nintendo has only first party but if there was no such thing as first party we all would have the same Damn games on differrnt systems it would be retarted. I cherish my PS1 hands down had the best rpgs grandia, legend of dragoon ect... Now nothing like that to offer I prefer Nintendo and yes they have made mistakes but they stick to the guns and not try to change and be something there not. The Media Controls alot and most people follow it and belive it, it's sad.
wiiu is a good system, but not as a stand alone IMO you have to have another console and a wiiu. On to Mario 3D land this game is one of the reasons I got the wiiu and cant wait to play it. but other than that super mario u is my current favorite game on wiiu. disappointed in wonderful 101 and zombie u. but got Donkey Kong, Mario cart 8 and X to look forward to.
Huge Nintndo fan but I agree. You need a Wii U n one more system. That way you have all the great Nintendo published games AND basically every third party game.
releasing this game alongside two console launches is not smart. its going to be lost in the ps4/x1 hype. ask ANYONE what gaming event there is this xmas and nobody will say mario 3d world. they will say the release of ps4/x1.
Cause it would be better to just give in, and not release before Black Friday? /no logic
"Ask anyone" has never and will never be relevant. What does " anyone" do or believe in. I'll lay it out for u. As mentioned above by someone else mainstream media determines what the majority thinks about everything. Including products. Miley Cyrus isn't truly talented or innovative in what she does. But she is currently a top selling artist with multiple hits. Of course she has nothing to do with games but it is a prime example of what " anyone" thinks. For all we know the ps4 and xbone are junk and are selling now strictly based on hype. They were sold before we even knew if they were worth anything. Anyone find it strange that pre ordering is bigger than ever now when these consoles are mass produced. I would put money on the fact that if I went out on a search for the ps4 today I would find one by the end of the day. Yet pre orders are pushed hard and doa ps4s are out there. They are not finishing these consoles they are selling them before they are even released. And then not even taking the time to send a quality product. They already have your money and tons of hype to push it. Mission accomplished. I will buy a ps4 next year because I love games so don't get me wrong. But anyone who has a ps4 already has been robbed by the man. And my wii u is the only console I need right now. When I buy 3d world I will know before the purchase that I am buying a quality product. Media has called the wii u junk. Yet I play mine everyday with no problems. It produces beautiful games that are absolutely next gen. Yet it was released a year ago with nothing but negativity except from who? Actual wii u owners. Most wii u owners are happy with their purchase. That should speak louder than mainstream media. People support the ps4 with so much passion and it confuses me. They haven't done many things so far that is for the consumer. Yet people back them with a fury. They tried to make this console cheaper not to help u but to help their wallets and every decision past that has been the same. Actually from the reports they could make it even cheaper right now and still be profitable. That personally scares me. I've been scammed by these companies before and it won't happen again. No matter how powerful it is the insides are still made of cheap parts apparently. Cheap over priced parts and considering the time they had between generations I just expected a little more But by the judge of your name u don't have to worry about that. U probably have a top notch pc and don't have to worry about anything that I just said which is why I might actually make the switch. Cutting out the big console business and deciding myself how powerful and stable I want my console to be. If that is the case with u than u are a wise man. I'm not anyone. So all I want for Christmas is snow, snow levels, and my pending charges dropped. Best of luck to u and everyone out there. And somehow even with all that said I'm a little jealous of ps4 owners. But not enough to get it. It needs games first. Which is coincidently the same stuff they bashed the wii u for. Hahahahahaha oh the world. So freakin stupid and backwards. Thank god that 9 times out of 10 the majority is wrong. Stay safe out there pal. Keep your gaming thumbs strong
I 1000% agree with everything you've just said. Very well said.
'' mainstream media determines what the majority thinks about everything. Including products. Miley Cyrus isn't truly talented or innovative in what she does. But she is currently a top selling artist with multiple hits.'' ok, but mario is still a mainstream product. mario demands the support of the media as much as the ps4/x1. but, when you put all 3 out at the same time, all trying to grab the consumers attention, which one is going to win? the hardware will. hardware launches are a once in a decade event. its the start of a new era. they are important launches in modern technology, culture, gaming etc so these launches generate massive amounts of coverage. one game could never generate THAT much hype or interest. so this mario game can not compete and i think nintendo are going to damage their sells by releasing alongside two console launches. ''Miley Cyrus isn't truly talented or innovative in what she does. But she is currently a top selling artist with multiple hits.'' its not like she was a nobody. she was practically a household name anyway, she has been for years. people know her, she has millions of fans. ''Media has called the wii u junk.'' the media responded that way to the wiiu because the wiiu itself has identity issues. how can anyone be excited about the prospect of a next gen nintendo console, that technically is barely beyond current gen tech. and it isnt just the media that responded negatively to wiiu, but the gaming community too. this is reflected in the poor sales. i will get a wiiu when the price drops further and there are more games. i will most likely buy one when X (xenoblade 2) comes out. and yes, i will probably watch how the ps4 does and buy that at some point. my name isnt related to pc's, though i have realised it looks that way lol
best of luck to you too :)
@Thepcz - here's a little bet I have for you. I will bet you that 3D World will sell more copies than any of the PS4 or XB1 launch titles.
yeh because the wiiu already has a user base from a year on the market, and there are no other games on the wiiu, so everyone will buy mario 3d world for xmas. :)
@Thepcz - lol, I guess I can't really argue with you there too much. There still are some really great games for the Wii U, even if they don't appeal to you. But you have to remember that some people (myself included) want a PS4 but I already own a Wii U. You think that just because I get a PS4 I am going to abandon my Wii U? Hardly, aside from Killzone and a couple of the free PS+ titles, nothing out of the launch titles interest me for the PS4 (BF4 is better on my PC, already beat Ghosts on my Wii U, AC4 I will end up purchasing but I can get it for my Wii U as well). I still have Pikmin, W101, Rayman, WWHD, Lego Marvel Superheroes and then Mario 3D World to finish up this holiday season. I have more than enough to tide me over until games like Infamous and Watch Dogs release for the PS4.
Stop trying to downplay how big this game is going to be. seriously Thepcz you're trying way to hard.
lol im not trying to downplay it... i just think nintendo have a lot of guts to put their game up against two console launches. im just saying its incredibly risky as the game will most likely get lost in all the hype of the console launches. if you notice, nobody is talking about mario 3d world right now. you dont get articles in the news papers about mario 3d world. its all ps4/x1. this is what im talking about. of course, its not a reflection of the quality of the game
Looks like an awesome way to spend $60 to me! Funny, I played COD for the last 5 years off and on. To say it got stale is an understatement. They took something awesome and ruined it. It's just a money grab now (in my opinion). I've actually gotten interested in GAMES again with the Wii U, sadly, I can't play them all. But this one I will!
I'm dying to get my hands on this bad rider!!!!
