It's about time Luigi gets big time recognized.

He was my go to guy on Super Mario 2.

Mine was Toad, but I did prefer Luigi over Mario. I didn't like playing as the princess at all.

Toad is my go to person on Mario Kart games.

W/O using warp zones, I think I use the princess on 1 board in Super Mario 2. I think I use Toad like 3 or 4 times, and the rest of the time, I use Luigi.

The princess was useful in certain levels. If I were to rank them, I'd go

Toad: fast picking in bonus stages was important, and shorter jumps were easier to control

Luigi & Princess: tie. Specialists... weak pickers, but the special jumps came in handy at times.




Mario: I don't remember ever using him.

Beat the first Mass Effect. I like the story better than 2, but I felt 2 had the better gameplay. Ends up a wash in my opinion.

I liked pretty much everything about 2 better, but not by a large margin.

Super Mario 2 -


I liked 2 too. It wasnt even a mario game...they took some other game and put the Mario characters in it. Good game though for sure...takes forever to beat.

Yeah I guess I feel the same way about SMB2 though, its definitely not a Mario game. But after the mid 90s, i'd say I only have gone back to 1 and 3.

Mario 2 is my favorite mario game, Luigi every level except the ice level with the things flying, need to use peach. This is the only mario game that I can consistently beat in a couple hours.

I am completely content if the PS4 didn't alter the controller too much. I don't need something with a ridiculous amount of interface to it when I have a 42" TV that should have enough room on it to accurately convey what I need to know or see to play the game.

Almost finished with story mode on Lego Batman 2. I found it fun. I just have the last board to get through and then I get to finally roam free and try to collect all of the miscellaneous stuff. I'm about 25% of the way through. This one has been fun.

The original? Both 1 and 2 are fantastic games, but 1 is still pretty much a 'gold standard' for giving your gfx card and processor a workout.

Super excited about #3, which comes out............ tomorrow!

Is Crysis that game that has a sequal coming out with that ridiculously over the top commercial? I like that commercial.
