    I don't know what's gotten into me. I am suddenly dying on the inside waiting for the Wii U.
    I swear I hated it about 5 minutes ago...

    The world that never was
    I heard about this. And it gives me this excitement bit by bit :D Let's hope Nintendo blows us all from excitement in that conference.

    No way Nintendoland is going to be a pack in game, there's too much effort and content put into it.

    After actually reading about Nintendo Land more I'm thinking I might have to buy it.

    Well, the game would be a hit either way.

    It would be ballin' if it was a pack-in, and will still be 10x worth it if it wasn't.

    Nintendo Land looks kinda like shit. I don't expect it to be a pack in but I don't expect it to be good.

    NSMBU looks like.. every other NSMB game. I think Rayman Legends will take the 2D platformer cake.

    So... much... wrong.

    I also find it ironic how people say NSMBU looks the same, and that Rayman Legends is the better title.

    Wow.

    Because Rayman Origins was one of the best 2D platformers ever made?

    And so was NSMBW. And yet that somehow stops NSMBU from being better than Rayman Legends.

    Inb4 "NSMBW is just NSMBDS on Wii".

    Not to mention every complaint you could throw at NSMBU can easily be thrown at Rayman Legends.

    I honestly think Rayman Legends looks like a flash game. Rayman games aren't even fun anyway.

    NSMBW felt kinda eh. I didn't nearly have any of the charm, flair, or general perfection that Origins had.

    I'm just kinda sick of NSMB games, I really don't want them any more. I kinda want more from my games than just NSMB platformer levels. They just don't impress me unlike Rayman Origins did. Aside from it's fantastic level design and masterful difficulty curve, it had so much charm to it with its music and graphics.

    Also if you (not direct at you Donny, just read the other reply) think Rayman looks like a Flash game then you clearly don't know how animation works.

    And yet it has level design that wasn't trial and error. Which is a problem with Rayman Origins, you could get them right, but after 400 times of trying.

    And your comment about how NSMBU "looks the same" is plain wrong, too.

    I'm still not convinced that this:

    The only levels of Rayman that were really trial and error were the Tricky Chest ones. The rest were completable by skill.

    Also, how do those NOT look the same. One looks a little rounder, welcome to the world of actual graphical power. But they still look very identical.

    There's alot of more trial and error levels.

    And no, they do not look the same. NSMBU has the better artstyle, lighting, particle effects, shading, increased resolution, I don't know what your definition of "same" is, but its obviously drastically different then mine.

    There's a few trial and error levels but even then, it comes down to skill. Plus there's plenty of games that are trial and error. Take Megaman for instance. People still love it.

    Also, the game has obvious graphical improvements, but that comes inherent with better hardware. But the caves look the same, the creatures look the same, the players look the same. They don't know how to make the games look interesting.

    No, it doesn't. The background's different, the actual foreground is different, even the lighting's different (the NSMBU cave actually looks like its in a CAVE).

    The same in DESIGN? Yeah, they look the same, what the heck do you want them to look like, this?

    [​IMG]

    And even then, the resolution and detail's even better. Mario in the NSMBW screenshot's a pixelated mess. The Mario and Piranha Plants in the NSMBU screenshot looks like the their handrawn artwork:
