    Well; the time is almost here. May 15th. IGN has their copies and are raving about it so far. They also put a page of gameplay videos up:

    My favorite? Watch the one with Bowser in it. See what happens to him. :eek: 

    Looking forward to this.

    ...and whatnot.

    Seriously though, I had no idea about this game being on the way, and it looks amazing. Pretty pumped that my new DS lite will have some new food.

    All over it, but disapointed that Snoop Dogg won't be doing the theme tune.

    Looks pretty good. Very classic Mario styled. My only question, do you need to use the stylus at all? If the answer is no, then I'm sold.

    :eek:  Wow, pretty graphic for a Mario game. Wonder how they're going to explain that, this is the first real 'death-scene' in a Mario game if memory serves me right.

    That was amazing! I love the idea of the blue shell. It seems to have a mixture of details from all the mario games. I saw elements of 1, 3, Super, and 64 in there. I cannot wait!

    I'm guessing like many other DS games, you will have the option, but it won't be mandatory.

    The mic option however....I wonder if they will use that? That would be fun. Like having to say "Star power" to use a star, or to blow into it to create that huge Mario.

    I hope not, I do most of my portable game playing on the bus going to and from work and the ambient sound on said bus is so loud to over rides every thing. It did come in handy for the Feel The Magic games that wanted you to shout into the mic.

    Yeah, one of my favorite games is battlemode in Mario Kart, my objective is to never blow up a balloon, only steal others. Plane engines caused the balloons to automatically fill up.

    From what I've read, it's suppose to be straight-up Mario 2D platforming, evolving from Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World. So no stylus.

    Looks cool, should really look into getting a DS one of these days I miss Mario :(  One of the few V-games I actually liked as I'm not really a game person.

    From what I understand, you don't need the stylus. The second screen is like a progress bar/item detail, where you can have an item stored (like in Mario 3), but if you want you can just touch it to activate it. It probably has a buttom mapped as well.

    So, no, no stylus needed.

    Yeah, when I watched I was like "Man, that Bowser model looks good" to "holy shit, his face was melted off."

    Bowsers death seems unusually gory for a Nintendo game, I mean, this may disturb some younger kids, seeing the villains face get melted off.
