Galaxy 2 will mostly be new levels, but apparently some old worlds will be back with new missions.

Ugh...you know. My real disappointment with both Mario Galaxy 2 and NSMB2 is that...they're sequels, but they feel like they're just reusing all the old assets just to quickly fish out a sequel. They're adding in stuff that should've been in the original in the first place. Its Forza 3 again, more of the same with some slight additions. Emphasis on slight.

NSMBW has picking up and throwing other players? BAH I SAY. We had that on the NES with the Chip & Dale game!

(This list is incomplete)

I can imagine people beating each other up for throwing the other players off the level. Some of those levels seen in some random footage looks kind of brutal for multiple players.

Oh, and the Koopa Kids are in the game. Its already better than Mario Galaxy 2.

Yes Bartman, because stuff being added in always should have been in the game. God where was Sega back in 1991? Why was there no werehog for me to play as, HUH?

Metroid: Other M excites me, Mario Galaxy 2 is something to look forward to, and I'd be lying if I didn't say Final Fantasy XIV interested me a little at least.

Microsoft going Casual
Nintendo going Hardcore?

Oh and finally

Ahem, SQUENIX! Please finish the first fucking game, before announcing any sequal and the 500 Spinoffs FFXIII already has.

Just pretend the game is named "New MMO by Square-Enix" or something. There, problem solved.

I would, but then I recall how much their last MMO, which is STILL ONGOING AND STILL FINAL FANTASY THEMED, sucked major balls.

Perfect Dark XBLA is in 1080P and 60 frames per second!
There's also a free theme up on Xbox Live Marketplace.

Also, Tatsunoko Vs Capcom is going to have online multiplayer!

I always praised the Sonic racing games for not being straight up Mario Kart clones. But now...its like companies forgot that "Character kart racers" or..."Mario Kart" was cool, now theres three different Mario Kart clones coming out. Like they just saw Mario Kart Wii as this insanely popular game that sold a fuck ton of copies, and they're trying to capitalize on it.

Sony's kart racer looked to be the most generic.
Sega Superstars might try to downplay the item system, but I dont quite see whats so Outrun about it.
Microsoft looks like you just drive around and incorporates the Avatar support, which was already a ripoff in general.

I want a Mario game where he becomes a zombie and starts eating people.

Or a game where Mario is shooting really gross-looking zombies with an uzi.
Until they do something ridiculous like that, I'm kind of done with Mario. You can only stomp on turtles for so long.

Mario has done every stupid thing but his job. I don't see him fixing any plumbing around here.

Oh but maybe if they made some kind of Mario detective game, or Mario is an Attorney game, I'd play that.

You see, to me that's what's so great about Mario games. It's WHY  it's actually a successful franchise as opposed to well ... Sonic.

Mario stuck with it's roots. It didn't take itself seriously, and they have always been about having fun. That's the only key element that MATTERS in a Mario game. It's why Bowser can give some speach as a Supernova explodes around him and he falls to the ground screaming "MY EMPIREEEEE!" and then moments later is standing next to Mario and Peach at a party at the castle. Because ... it's not trying to be some ridiculous story driven crap. Just ... A fun game.

Assuming you were being sarcastic, but just incase you were somehow serious ... Mario with an Uzi ... You know what happens when you introduce guns into classic style games? You get Shadow the Hedgehog. You get sin.

But yeah. I'd say they actually ARE doing new things with Mario, but still keeping it the same games everyone loved.
