New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC detailed

MattEdWithCheese

6 years ago

As far as I'm concerned, the only purpose of the main game in NSMB2 was to unlock the levels in coin rush mode. The mode to me infinitely replayable, so £1.59 for a pack of three levels is great value. I'd argue that most people who play it will be sufficiently occupied without the DLC and if you're in that group of people, I'd recommend not buying it.

I often don't understand why people complain about DLC, if you don't think the content is worth it, don't buy the DLC and likewise if you don't think a retail game has enough content in it, don't buy it either. Publishers sell what sells but I'd argue that what nintendo have done with NSMB2's DLC is nowhere near the level of £10 timed exclusive map-packs. I'll similarly make my own value judgements on whether the Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC is worth it.

I loved 2 apart from the dull name, the original NSMB Gold would have been much better along with the fan-name Coingasm. As a score-attack gamer, I enjoy trying to better myself in the Coin Rush mode. My current best total is around 3300 coins from the Mushroom Course.

Well he did say that the decision near the beginning of Fable III would be bigger than the one at the end of Fable II but it just ended up being: Kill Nicholas Hoult or don't kill Nicholas Hoult. Which was, to me, no choice at all…

Will have a mess around with this when it comes out though yet I can imagine the players will drop off faster than they did for the similarly structured Noby Noby Boy…

@Agarwel_Idiriz Many of Nintendo's new IPs seem to have fairly niche appeal, like Cing's adventure games or Disaster. Their "thing" in the last few years has been resurrecting dead IP such as Sin & Punishment and Kid Icarus. Which, to me is as good as new IP...
