I REALLY want to play another third person shooter Mario game! But we need more variety...starbits are getting old as bullets...
But calling Galaxy 2 a shooter is like calling Mirror's Edge a shooter. You CAN shoot, but you can make it through most (if not all) of the game without firing a single shot. A sub-mechanic does not define the genre of a game.
Also, it's the player firing the starbits (since the bits were flying from the camera view), so if anything, it'd be a 1st person shooting mechanic. </technicalities> --- New Rule: First person to call the opposing side a "Fanboy" or "Troll" automatically loses the argument Ready, Set, GO!
I loathe the Galaxy games and want a 3D Mario much more like M64, but full of NPCs and quests and towns to explore, etc. --- http://imgon.net/di-CFMD.gif Say "hi" to your 2012 World Champions: The San Francisco Giants!!!!
A more exploration based 3D Mario would work perfectly with the Gamepad. --- What kind of world to we live in. Where love is divided by hate. Losing control of our feelings. We all must be dreaming this life away in a world so cold.
