    I do like hub worlds but i really didnt like Galaxys hub world beyond the flying. So i guess no big deal but it would have been nice to have a cool one.

    This is officially official though.

    Plus, people's finds are almost always stolen in USN (User Submitted News). Like when that guy said there was a mysterious update for the DSi and no one believed him, then someone with over 1000 posts posted it and everyone went "OMG! Awesome find!!!!!!!!".

    I think the most disappointing part (or maybe the only disappointing part [​IMG]) of Galaxy was the HUB-World. It really didn`t add much to the game. And I think before they integrate the same kind of HUB without improvements in Galaxy2 they could just leave it out...

    But what I really wished is, that they would make a HUB-World similar to Sunshine, since that was an amazing HUB-World. There were many things and places to explore and to find out.

    But what I really don`t get are statements like this one:
    Why don`t they just incooperate both... It`s like with the Wi-Fi Option in NSMBWii! To Have a Select-Screen (as a short-cut) shouldn`t rule out a HUB-World, like local-Multiplayer shouldn`t IMHO rule out Online-Multiplayer...

    Miyamoto's basically saying the Hub world shouldn't be a big part of the game, and was removed in order for the player to focus on the actual levels of the game.

    But so many people loved the Hub world and it added a little something extra that really made the game amazing (sure the game is amazing anyway, but c'mon, the Hub world was fun).

    Sounds to me like budget restrictions. They're probably just doing as little as they can on this one, not to say it doesn't look amazing, cause it sure as hell does, but I bet the majority of levels in this one were ones that made the chop in the original Galaxy.

    So you think there rushing this one? I don't think they would do that on a Mario game.

    I don't think so. Usually the hub world fits into the story somehow, but Nintendo has stated they wanted less of a story (Mario games don't need a story, right?), so there wouldn't be a seamless way to put in a hub world.
    And also, Nintendo has stated that they wanted to make SMG2 bigger and better, and they spent 2-3 years making it. Why would it be rushed?

    Not having a hub world just gimps the already shoddy storyline.
    Hopefully they won't forgo the storyline altogether.

    Super Mario 64 isn't exactly what I'd call a game with an emphasis on storytelling, and yet its hub world doesn't really feel out of place.
    I'm not doubting Nintendo's ability to make choices for the better, but with each scrap of news that gets out about Galaxy 2, I get more and more afraid that it's gonna be inferior...

    (slaps self) Cut it out, Geoflcl, it's gonna be great! [​IMG]

    good without a hub world they can fit more into the game and you can get into it faster.
