    Mario and Luigi: SuperStar Saga Remake

    Thoughts on this?

    Personally, I loved the original game growing up. But, 2 years or so ago I bought it on Wii U VC and couldn't finish it. Not really sure why, but I couldn't.

    And from the bits and pieces of footage I've seen of the remake, it looks a little, shall we say, generic. Not as generic as the recent Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, but still doesn't have quite the same charm as the original GBA game. Add to those reasons the fact that Mario Odyssey will be coming out 17 days after this, and me not buying any more 3DS games (Physical and Digital) after Metroid: Samus Returns, and...

    I've never played a Mario and Luigi RPG and I don't think this will make me start

    Yeah, honestly if the Mario and Luigi RPG series died off, that would be OK in my book. I'd rather they make the Paper Mario series worthwhile again.

    Never played the game before and needed something for my 3DS. Figured it looked interesting so I pre-ordered.

    I do have the original, what I'll bother with SuperStar Saga...I mean, compared to Metroid 2 or Fire emblem Gaiden, this remake is a little "cheap"

    Can't believe you're still talking about the 3DS.

    Yeah, hopefully after Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon it dies a dignified death.

    The original is amazing. It's as good as the good Paper Mario games. But as Nintendo continued to experiment with both series, the identity of both got muddied. It's the Mario and Luigi series' fault that Paper Mario has become what it is. Maybe they'll stop making Mario and Luigi games now that the 3DS is on its way out. At that point, Paper Mario should be itself again.

    Nintendo has literally gone on record stating that they have first party games coming to the thing until 2019 at least (I remember making a thread on it)

    I hope so too.

    Heck, at this point I'd be happy with a Super Paper Mario 2.

    I don't think so, Max.

    Original is in my top 10 games of all time I think. The remake loses some of the feels though, the sprites are magic in the original.

    The same thing as mine? Grinding up some competitive 5-IV and non-competitive 6-IV "stud" Pokemon to put into the bank?



    In all seriousness, I did just pre-order the SSS remake when I remembered Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 launched (and ordered it to boot). I love revisiting the original on GBA or Wii U, but I really love the visual and game mechanic update it's getting for 3DS.
