Bowser's Inside Story?

#1Magikoopa21Posted 10/7/2012 4:56:01 PM
Can anyone tell me if the combat in Bowser's Inside Story requires pushing buttons at a certain time for more damage? I didn't like that system in PM: TTYD or M&L:SS, because I'm not great with timing things right and prefer traditional turn-based combat. So can anyone tell me if it's timed or difficult? Thanks!

If you didn't like the battle system in those games it's safe to say you wouldnt like the combat in BiS.

Yeah, it's in there. It's in pretty much every Mario RPG. It's not required, but it does add extra damage.
But the battles are very similar to those in Superstar Saga and Partners in Time

Not only you need to push buttons at the right time to deal extra damage, you also need to push them to avoid damage! And Mario and Luigi aren't exactly tanks, so if you don't figure it out, you're gonna have a bad time.

As Hejiru said, every Mario RPG makes use of that timed-button-pushing to increase damage. The only advice I can give you is to try to endure it until you get the timing down or give up on Mario RPGs.

Rather than make a new topic, I'll ask here...

I FINALLY (after so many years) sat down and finished SM RPG on SNES (before last week I had never played past Yardovich or however you spell it, after you fight the shark).

I have also never played the Paper Mario games or the M&L GBA games, BIS, etc. Are these chronological? As in, where should I start next if they have a consecutive story to follow? Do I need to play the Paper Mario games before the M&L games, or does it not matter? Its obvious that you start with the first Paper Mario before playing the others, and the first M&L before playing the others, but I'm not sure if I should play one series before the other. I've heard nothing but good things about both of them so now I want to try them out.

I would say start with Paper Mario, then PM:TTYD, then Mario & Luigi series then when you are done with those pick up Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga are my favorites of them all. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is up there.

You can start anywhere. There isn't really a consecutive story between games. Actually I don't any of the RPG games have a connection to any of the others except in minor ways like cameos. You can play them in any order. You don't even have to play the first Paper Mario first, or the first Mario & Luigi first.
