Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Posted by Kohaku , in Video Games Dec 08 2012 · 247 views
Paper Mario, Stickers
As I don't have anything new to report on the Permit situation, I'm going to post something a bit different today. After all, this isn't the doom and gloom blog.
 
I downloaded Paper Mario: Sticker Star a while ago and I've been pondering how I've felt about it ever since I beat it. This is kind of a spoiler free minireview.

Sticker Star isn't a bad game... but it isn't a great game compared to the other games in the series. I like Paper Mario: Sticker Star, but it could be so much better.

The great parts of it are fantastic, the jazzy music is some of the best in the series, the 3d effect is great with the paper and cardboard effects, the writing that is there is great too. Even the battle system is great.

However, I want a story with my Paper Mario games. There is a story but it is such a bare bones story that it detracts from the game being a Paper Mario game. If anything it is Paper Mario Lite. Bowser doesn't speak at all, he isn't funny at all like we are used to him being, Peach only has a few lines in the entire game. The Toads forget about Peach and start repairing the sticker fest which Bowser destroyed. That is pretty much it. There really isn't a story at all. Kersti is a good character that I liked, and the team at Nintendo of America did good with the localization of the game. Intelligent Systems did great with the game. And as much as I love Miyamoto, I can't help but be disappointed in the fact that he made sure that there was no story.

Yes, I miss the partners, but I got used to the battle system and it is okay, it is a fun battle system. My main complaint about the battle system is the fact that you can't choose who to attack. The Thing stickers are wacky and funny though.

However, some of the puzzles regarding the Thing stickers can be rather obscure and crazy. People complained about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and the fact that it was a game that held your hand... they need to play Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is the complete opposite and has virtually no hand holding.

However, the music in Paper Mario: Sticker Star is fantastic. I must say, I love the soundtrack, it is so catchy and I never though I would hear a jazzy Mario soundtrack, I can't complain about it.

I like Sticker Star, but I think it could have been a much better game than it ultimately was. Don't get me wrong, it is a lot of fun and it is a well polished game and fun game. When it comes to a game in a series it is going to be compared to previous games in the series and I don't think it stacks up to Paper Mario 64 and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. It stands on its own and I think it is a good introduction to the series, but I would love for another game like The Thousand Year Door. This isn't that game.

Have any of you played Sticker Star, what did you guys think?

A bit of relaxation

Posted by Kohaku , in Real Life, Video Games Nov 26 2012 · 180 views

So, having internet back has been great. However when the hurricane hit we all forgot about something we ordered and paid for.

We forgot until it arrived at a house that we can't live at as we were continuing the clean up. So we set it up at our rental house and finally had some rest and relaxation for the first time since Hurricane Sandy hit.

I must say, the Wii U has been a ton of much needed fun for us. (If anyone wants to add me on Miiverse my username is Kohakuchan)

Other than that, Aleks' grandfather's van has been taken away by a scrapper. The house is still there as securing permits has taken longer than everyone thought.

Everyday has been a bit better than the last, but honestly... at the end of each day we just want to go home. Today though has been a day with no running around and just some simple relaxation. It has been nice and much needed.

NYCC, New York Comic Con, Cosplay
Okay! Thanks to Aleks being fabulous at making some of the images smaller and such, let us get this show on the road with some cosplay!

New York Comic Con was a ton of fun, we hung out with some friends we went with and then I even got to hang out with Disky for a bit. Not to mention all of the free stuff that we got and our cat ears. (OMG I WANT THE TAIL THAT IS COMING OUT TOO) :3

I'll be posting some and linking to the gallery with the rest.

We'll start with some of our own cosplay!

NYCC, New York Comic Con and 1 more...
(Cosplay pictures will be up tomorrow morning.)

When I was at New York Comic Con, the Nintendo rep let an interesting fact slip about Scribblenauts Unlimited, that Nintendo has allegedly licensed characters to the Scribblenauts team to use.

Today, this was teased:

Looks like some Mario and Zelda characters to me. And this wouldn't be surprising seeing how they have been licensing their IPs in a few other third party games.
