Yeah, Sega actually seems to be using their heads for once. Normally they'd rush things for holiday releases so they could get a quick buck. It seems like they realized how they've been dragging Sonic's name through the mud for most of the past decade. Sonic Mania is a dream come true for me, and if Sonic 2017 is as good as Generations, this could be Sonic's return to form.


On a somewhat unrelated note, I'm hoping that if they get some footing for Sonic they'll try and revive their other IPs. I'd like to see a new Skies of Arcadia or Jet Set Radio.

I would love Sega to continue Resonance of Fate, Sakura Wars, Jet Set Radio, Shining Force, and many others but sadly it feels like the only way these series continue are through the Project X Zone games. I may personally love the crap out of those games, but I kinda wish they got their own new titles themselves. Even then some series like JSR and Skies haven't seen anything at all after all these years.

Yeah, as much as I love Sonic, I'd really like to try out some of their other IPs. I wasn't fortunate enough to know about Jet Set Radio, Skies of Arcadia, Shining Force and all of their other series when I was younger. But now that I'm actually aware of their existence, I'd really like the opportunity to play them. Especially Skies of Arcadia, I've heard overwhelmingly positive stuff about that game.

I guess X Zone is a nice way of keeping them on life-support, but it's kind of a sad that a crossover game is their most recent appearance.

While I'd honestly prefer it being on the Switch over the 3DS, I think a remake of SS is actually the thing the M&L series needs right now. After Bowser's Inside Story, it feels like they really lost sight of what made M&L fun. Dream Team was an alright game, it had some creative ideas and nice callbacks to the previous games. But the surplus of tutorials and the over-complication of the battle system makes going back to replay it feel like a chore.

I just skipped Paper Jam because of how dull it looked. Yeah, no one gets excited by new, interesting and creative settings that make the Mario univere feel so much bigger and magical, Nintendo. What we're really itching to see is the grassland, desert and snowlands from NSMB for the hundreth time. And characters? Psh, forget that. What the people want is the Koopalings and more TOADS!! Honestly, the game could be solid for all I know, but the lack of imagination just makes it feel so lifeless and uninteresting.

M&L feels like it's marching down the same path Paper Mario did, stripping away it's identity little by little until it's just a plain old Mario Adventure, just in the "Action Adventure" genre. Going back to its roots could help revitilize the series and help AlphaDream remember what made the series so loved to begin with. Or they could fuck it up with their current vision for the series. Who knows.

Exactly what I was thinking. Tbh the only thing good about Paper Jam was the battle system, but I never had that big of a reason to fight because all of the enemies were just boring after a while. They end up reusing a lot of enemies and they made far too many enemies on the over world; I ended up just avoiding as many enemies as possible in the end segment because I just wanted the game to end. Plus the story basically becomes "save peach, stop Bowser from kidnapping them again". Hopefully this all but confirmed rumor doesn't remake the story and remove all the ingenuity the original had. Tbh I can't really make myself go back and play SSS very easily even though I had fun with it when I first played it. Hopefully they'll add some new things that add more to it while still keeping that original feel the original had.

I think it'd be a bit counter productive to remake SS with the George Lucas effect. But I could see them ruining the battle system by making it like Dream Team's. I'm not usually big on remakes that don't do much outside of a face-lift, but I think this would be an exception. I can just see a lot of ways that AlphaDream could make it a lesser experience rather than a better one. In my eyes anyways.

Overall I think this year's E3 was pretty dang good. First there was Dragon Ball FighterZ, and to be honest with you E3 could have ended right then and I would've been happy, but there was also the KH3 trailer, and the surprise Shadow of the Colossus remake which looks amazing. I'm also looking forward to the new Monster Hunter a lot, and it was great to finally see some gameplay of the new Spider-Man game.

As for Nintendo, I liked the new Mario Odyssey stuff they showed, and I'm looking forward to the Superstar Saga remake despite it reusing the same sprites as the last two M&L games. I'm no Metroid fan, but I'm willing to give the Metroid 2 remake a shot. I played the original but not very much.

I feel like Donkey Kong just shaved my ass cheeks with those moves.

Yeah, E3 was good overall. Monster Hunter and Spiderman look pretty interesting. I'll keep an eye on them. Dragon Ball Fighter Z looks really cool, I might actually consider getting it, despite not being a huge fan of fighters or even DBZ. The Shadow of Collosus remake speaks for itself.

Nintendo showed off some good stuff too. Yoshi and Kirby look like fun, if not a bit standard. Glad to see Metroid is making a comeback, and with Prime 4 no less. Xenoblade 2 is something I'm on the fence about, but it looks neat. Super Mario Odyssey basically made the show for me, I haven't been this excited for a Mario game since Super Mario Galaxy 2. The SS remake looks cool too, but I am a bit worried about the remake taking away the charm of the original's visuals after seeing some screenshots...

2017 is the year that keeps giving... For video games anyways.
