    They should really do a proper 2D one again. Like, actual 2D artwork, not Paper Mario 2D-as-3D, but proper sprites. There was something genuinely magical about Mario World, and though it wasn't quite as good a game all round, Yoshi's Island is one of the most unique platformers ever made, aesthetically and gameplay wise. Even though they both consist of low-res sprites and may look a bit dated, there's still something innately magical about the visuals that the 3D ones have never really had for me.

    It's not a category with a huge amount of competition to be honest, but yeah, I'd agree.

    Mario Galaxy was quite clearly based on the insight that the funnest part of Mario Sunshine were the little old-school platformy bits, and made a whole game out of them. I think its form is quite innovative if not the gaming mechanics itself. It somehow realises that bite-size platforming is more fun, even if it's lots of bite-size platforming.

    A bit like Cadburys Fingers being better than Cadburys Snacks, even though they're made of the same stuff.
    You put it better than I did but yeah, this.

    It was the first 3d platformer I had played that was really comfortable with it being a platformer first and foremost. The space bending elements were what made it actually innovative for me, and something they were more confident with by the sequel.

    Have to be honest. I have given up on galaxy after around four hours. It is actually smaller and less exciting than Mario 64 that I recently played on the ds

    Can we slag off the 360 too? Mine is primarily an iPlayer/DVD player box. Still need to buy FarCry 3 though. Loved the 2nd one.

    Wellllll

    if this thread stayed on-topic, there'd be bugger-all to talk about.

    shitbox and pissy3 haikus would be good though.

    Jesus an 8 from Edge..... Gamepad play would be good.

    I think Devs really need to make gamepad play a must, it is one of the biggest selling points IMO.

    Gamepad play is the big feature for me. That's why I've played plenty of the games that support it but I've barely touched ZombieU. I appreciate it'd damage the experience so I don't want it added to that game, but for the likes of MH3 it's something I will definitely use.

    So, what do we reckon? Will EG review the WiiU port of Most Wanted or will they do a Digital Foundry comparison?

    @AdamAsunder

    I hope so. I was thinking of purchasing it until I saw a review that said it was considerably uglier than the ps360 versions.

    They were also catapulted forward through time as I did them before 1am. I reckon Fruit was right about wormholes all along.

    Link?

    It was supposed to be using PC textures so it was supposed to be sharper if anything.

    Haha! Sorry... its just too good a bug not to ignore. You need to edit it rather than delete it as that will not only get rid of the text, but do it more subtly than a big orange banner saying 'QUESTION MY DECISION!!' on it.

    Not that im telling you how to mod or anything..
