    Damn, this is looking like a busy year for my 3DS.

    The 3DS is dead
    Long live the 3DS

    These Mario & Luigi games are staring to feel really over inflated. Maybe that’s just paper Mario/rpg 7 stars salt talking, but I was done with this series after gyro controls and microphone were introduced into bro attacks.

    I love minions!

  • A Loli de 42 ‘OCs’ do Sonic

    but… this is a remake from the first Mario & Luigi.

    Superstar Saga was SO GOOD! Really looking forward to this

  • Travis Touchdown

    Yeah, these complaints from people about how M&L is bad now really do always feel as if they don’t actually know what they’re talking about.

    You know how ten years ago people loved being super contrarian and tried to say that OOT was a ‘bad’ game? The same thing is starting to happen with other Nintendo franchises.

  • A Loli de 42 ‘OCs’ do Sonic

    like how now everyone says 3D Sonic games suck when they were all well received when they came out except for 06 which is the only one that’s really legitimately bad?

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Can’t wait to see the EU version change the name to Superstar Saga Bros.

  • DrearierSpider

    I prefer the original GBA graphics.

  • Shinobu

    Shit, I’ll take it.

  • entropy

    So the ‘niche’ in Niche Gamer is code for Nintendo?

    I’ll get my coat.

  • UnpluggedBeta

    why is the 3ds still a thing.

  • Fenrir007

    I dunno, but I love it!
