@Rew 's opening post, prior to thread merger: "So since the Zelda series has its own thread, I figured Mario should too. I mean, there are already threads for specific Mario subseries like NSMB and Mario Kart, but nothing for the Mario franchise as a whole. I figure we can use this thread for general Super Mario discussion and for when news hits. So, in the plumber's own words, here we go! ... Anyway, what are your favorite Mario games, and which ones are you most looking forward to playing?" ---Original Mario Sunshine Thread Opening Post Follows--- I just got a chance to play the import version of this game [SMS] at a friend's house and I must say it uhh, ROCKS. Everything from the control, to the graphics, to the animation, to the story, to the FMVs, to the...EVERYTHING is perfect in this game. I had my doubts about the graphics at first but this works out beutifully. It's one of the best platformers I've played and is hard and amusing at the same time. Oh and it's fun. Amazingly fun. Addictively fun. Euphorically fun. Yeah, so uhh talk about the game here! It comes out August 26th.
