Also, Kara from Detroit seems to be a surrogate mother of sorts if the girl manages to live through the game.

Give me a Kill Bill style game and I'm in.

Yeah, there are already a few, even though they are far in between, video-games already do have some kick-ass moms and mother figures.

Personally, I think Pratchett should worry about getting Lara right and interesting before she worried about making a story about moms to interject into the gaming medium. Her idea of strong women is pretty laughable, because she gives them as many character flaws as possible to make you empathize with them, then just makes them kick ass because they have to be. No depth whatsoever.

She's extremely overrated IMO, and if it weren't for her dad's career, I doubt she ever would have gotten any attention to ever get a job writing the story for a high profile AAA IP.

For me, these Mario + Rabbids games were the best thing Ubisoft has developed in recent years. I'd hate to see Ubisoft drive the series into the ground like their other properties, so I think 2 games are enough. Maybe 1 more.

They can't ruin it because Ninty will send their ninjas to destroy all traces of it. If not for that you can bet that spinoff series would've been milked dry by now.

Great games, I have wanted Sony to copy these games with their own mascots for years.

I think Nintendo has to hire this guy, I mean the fact that miuamoto himself said to him that he is impressed with this work, speaks volumes. Th possibility on having Mario on Soliani's hand could be incredible and quite possibly a new era for Mario games.

Yea, these games didn't even feel Ubisoft at all. This felt very authentic Nintendo. This guy's direction is obviously stellar, and Ubisoft somehow managed to not kill it with microtransactions and repetitive, boring tasks.

Raph Koster wrote the #1 most influential game design book. Nice to see a game coming from him.
