So, Paper Mario is pretty good? Think I'll bite.


I thought it sucked and was happy to trade my copy in last week. RPG elements are GONE, and the sticker collecting combat mechanic is something I loathed. Worst Paper Mario by far, and a major disappointmet for me.

Castlevania on the otherhand is excellent, and something I'm in the midst of enjoying right now. Wish I waited a week or so to get the game for $30, as I didn't expect it to go on sale so soon. Mercury Steam crafted an excellent game that's different than previous handheld Castlevanias. Really enjoy the combat and the 3D is gorgeous as well and there's real depth to the areas you explore.

hey you want to sell it for 22 :) just joking........ personally would not give more then 10 for the bugged game

(bugged) at the end of chapter 1 when you fight the boss and beat the boss and go into chapter 2 you must play around 10 to 15 mins into chapter 2 before saving. if you dont and turn your system off (even if you save right after you beat the boss) when you come back into the game you will be at last SAVE POINT On chapter 1 BUT THE Grab spot will be gone meaning you have to delete the save and redo the entire chapter... company confirmed they knew this bug BUT did not think it was that big of a deal to fix it


I managed to finish the game the week it came out and I sold it back for $35. I'm really confused people were defending the game when it got a low review score on various gaming sites. The game was clearly rushed to meet the release deadline. I hope Konami goes back to the 2D style of Castlevania for the handheld devices and finish up the Lord of Shadows story arc for the consoles. The story with all the character switches every few hours for mirror of fate really wasn't necessary.
I didn't dislike the game, just wasn't happy with the final product. But I'm sure some will love this game for $30. I'll just be playing the DS Castlevania games instead :)

How is warfighter compared to the las MOH? I am not expecting anything out of multiplayer, however if single player is good I may consider...

Best Buy keeps putting Mirror of Fate on sale. I can't get rid of that stupid game now. People will expect me to sell it for $22 or something. I paid MSRP for that crap.

I like that Sticker Star is at a nice price. I didn't go for it when it was $29.99 on sale at Amazon.


Oh no! Perish the thought!

Nobody buy Sticker Star!!! It is nothing like the first two Paper Mario games, or that semi-decent Wii game. I got it for $15 new and turned around and sold it within hours for $25 because it's garbage. I'm saying this and I love paper mario but the RPG gameplay is gone.

Im gonna rebuy it just cause i want the Rapture edition. Grabbing it for ps3 this time so i can platinum them and have them both complete for both systems. Yea i got a problem. Love these games. Still own my 360 copies too.


I'm planning on platinuming bioshock pretty soon. It actually doesn't seem to hard, but the extra dificulty option added from the 360 release makes me imagine it's more difficult than 100%ing the achievements. Going to be fun though:)

DLC Needs to be installed from discs.

Well the Target by me already has a Temporary Price Cut on Castlevania for the same price that started today.

Just point them in direction of those links! Should be no problem at all!

Also, I successfully picked up Mario Stick Star with a pack of clearance rubber bands for $0.52 out of pocket using a $20 RZC! (Gave the rubber bands to the cashier, don't need them, lol.)

I agree with this. This Paper Mario was a huge letdown. Its nothing like the previous games. Its annoying having to keep gathering stickers, and if you don't nail the timing attack, it pretty much worthless. No leveling up either, which I hated. I would not recommend the game at any price, but just my opinion.

Also, the Castlevania game I found boring and just a badly done platformer. Not like the traditional Metroidvania style the old ones had. This is just an old school sidecroller in the veins of Castlevania 1, but without any of the flavor or precise controls.

Just a quick heads up that both Castlevania and Paper Mario aren't that good. To each his own, more power to you if you liked them, but they are both horrible IMO. I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up the next Mario & Luigi game, but that one looks promising.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

In regards to CV, You are not the first person to say this. I've others say the same thing. I want to get the game, but may just have to trade for it or something. Sad because you would think Konami would get their act right when dealing with 3rd party devs, people want CV games like SOTN, Simon's Quest, and POR.

Despite the hate for Paper Mario: Sticker Star, I picked up a copy anyway since I had a gift certificate and I could use the club nintendo coins towards gold/plat. Also I do realize the game is different from the first two in the series and while that sucks I'm quite interested in how it plays out. It may not be as good but I have some faith it will be fun to play. Also got Bioshock Rapture Edition, and for those of you who will ask this question. The DLC is on a separate disc that needs to be downloaded on your HDD. Similar to what Fallout 3 GOTY did. Thanks OP!

lol That weird bug with Simon falling to his death and grabbing onto the rope and surviving was good for a laugh. I actually didn't encounter the Chapter 1-2 bug because I just kept pacing back and forth. The characters being so slow most of the time also helps.

are you kidding me! Wtf is this. If you don't want to sell it for the going price than just keep it. Don't come in here and complain about a sale...no one cares if you bought it and want to sell for higher this the price.


And no one cares what you want to say about the matter, so chill.

I managed to finish the game the week it came out and I sold it back for $35. I'm really confused people were defending the game when it got a low review score on various gaming sites.

The producer wanted it to be like Memento. It's not everyone's favorite movie.

The fighting system is okay for a few fights, so there's some enjoyment in that. Castle exploration is not fun. That may ruin it for many people.

The coupon for the Konami store didn't even work when I went to use it.

Two votes against Paper Mario. I will do the research on it. It's been out there for a while, so it will have more information. I don't want to get another "Mirror of Fate" based on some reviews.

If you are expecting something like the 64 or gamecube Paper mario you likely wont like it. If you just take it for what it is its a pretty fun game in its own right.
