    So, some would remember this interview with Charles Martinet
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It got me thinking. How about a 2D platformer where it's the main 4 (Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi) and it's a race to the end in most matches. You play as Waluigi. Throughout the whole match though, Waluigi can never make it to first place to reach the goal first. So before each race, you have to place traps at random spots throughout the level, and then during the race you travel between the foreground and the background in order to activate these traps and slow your opponent. Thus you can get Waluigi to the goal first.

    It works I guess. It has cheating and Waluigi as the main character. What more could you want?

    I'm still working on the story though. Will edit this post with my result.

    Opinions?

    I'd just like a platformer where you go around stealing stuff like Wario. BUT... Luigi is the last boss [​IMG]

    Thanks, but I'm not the best at Game Maker. Last thing I did with it was a game called Pac-Maze. Wasn't too bad considering I was in Year 7. I hate the music now, you might want to must your speakers if you play it.

    Oh yeah because you know Mario Games are all original from one another.

    Luigi's Mansion compared to Mario Sunshine.
    One had you vacuuming up ghosts, the other had you cleaning graffiti.

    Now how are they the same?

    PERSONALLY... i find waluigi to be the most unnecessary addition to the Mario team. Im not a huge Wario fan either. Wario is ok and at least has his stake in the universe of mario games with his 4 platforming games and Warioware. But for a Waluige games? He simply appears in Mario party and Kart lol

    I dont know. I wouldnt buy it.

    BortzANATOR, I do not agree... Kids always like him (ok... kids use to like michael jackson too [​IMG] )... anyways, he is very popular with children, so I think that a children game will achieve success...

    Now, a elaborated game, for kids and adults, will not have great impact, because we, the old players, have no identification at all with waluigi... I remember that when I was 12, I hated Mario Kart 64 because it had a strange new driver (wario)...

    PS.: After 3 or 4 races, I became a fan of mario kart 64 [​IMG]

    Why not just have a game as hard as I Wanna Be the Guy, and if you can't pass it you can go into an in-game Action Replay parody with all these different cheats that you unlock by playing the game.

    You had a device on your back with an attached hose that you had to use for the entirety of the game (I didn't play them but I know they were something like this, and I wouldn't be surprised if they ran on the same engine)

    Nah, I'd like to see another Wario game that's essentially a Super Mario rip off. Those games were beast and I liked them better than some of the 2D Mario games.
