Let’s Talk #37: What would you like to see from a new Paper Mario game?

The Internet has been set ablaze over the past day or so with speculation regarding a potential new Paper Mario game for Wii U. Since it’s the hot Nintendo topic of the moment, I thought it’d make sense to have this week’s Let’s Talk centered around that.

It’s been a long time since we saw a proper Paper Mario entry. The Thousand-Year Door, a GameCube game, was the last true RPG in the series. Super Paper Mario was fine enough (I enjoyed it quite a bit myself actually), but you could argue that Sticker Star isn’t looked upon favorably despite decent reviews at the time. At this point, it might be for the best to return to the series’ roots and remember why the franchise has (mostly) been loved by so many players.

With all of that in mind, what would you want to see from a new Paper Mario game? If you have any thoughts, definitely share them in the comments below!

[Review] Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

Developer: AlphaDream
Publisher Nintendo


In all honesty, Mario & Luigi has fallen off my radar within the last few years. That’s not due to a dislike of the various games. I played the first one, but after that, I simply never picked up another title. However, when Nintendo announced that Paper Mario would be coming together with Mario & Luigi, my love for the former franchise was enough to finally push me to giving it another spin. Now that the RPG is finally in my hands, I can comfortably say that Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is a great representation of both series.

Update: Bumped to the top. The winners are megasnorlax927, GekkouKitsune, and HueyLooey. Congratulations! Codes have been sent via email.

Let’s Talk #36: Do you want to see more of Linkle?

After Hyrule Warriors came out, we learned that the developers toyed around with an idea for a character named “Linkle”. To put it simply, she was intended to be Link’s female equivalent. Concept art of Linkle eventually made the rounds, and for the most part, she was well-received. That’s what motivated Koei Tecmo to revisit the character and include her in Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Hyrule Warriors Legends will debut in Japan next week. Players will finally be able to use the character and see how she plays. But what role does she have beyond this game? Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has already mentioned wanting to keep her in mind for future entries in the franchise.

Do you guys want to see more of her though? Would you be open to having Linkle (or something else in the spirit of her character) in a mainline Zelda? Or would you prefer for Linkle to remain only in Hyrule Warriors Legends? Regardless of how you feel, definitely let us know below!

Let’s Talk #35: What are you playing? – January 2016

A new month is here! And a new year as well. So that means we want to know what you’ve been playing. Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Or maybe you’re continuing something you started a little while back? Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!


Highlights from last week’s topic: Impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles X

Let’s Talk #34: Impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X has been out in the west for almost a month now. For those that have been playing it, what do you think of the game thus far? Are you enjoying it? Has it not met your expectations? If you’ve played the original Xenoblade, how do you think this one stacks up? Let us know in the comments below.

I’ve actually had Xenoblade Chronicles X since launch, but haven’t had a chance to really play it yet. Sickness, business, and a terrible backlog make for a bad combination. I hope to change that soon though!


Highlights from last week’s topic: What do you want to see from next week’s Smash Bros. presentation?

Let’s Talk #33: What do you want to see from next week’s Smash Bros. presentation?

On Tuesday, Nintendo will be holding another Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS presentation. We know that this will be the final broadcast for these Smash Bros. titles, and we’ll be hearing more about Cloud. Nintendo has teased other information for the event, and we’ll almost certainly hear about the Smash Ballot. It should be pretty big given that this is the final Smash Bros. presentation!

So what are your last minute hopes for the stream? Is there any character you’re particularly pulling for? Is there a new stage you’d like to be added? Sound off in the comments below!

It’s the first weekend of a new month. Specifically, December has now rolled on in! So we want to know: what are you playing? Tell us in the comments below!

As for me, I’ve been a bit quiet with gaming as of late. I did start up Fantasy Life, but I’m just a few hours in. I like what I’ve played thus far though!

[Review] Xenoblade Chronicles X

System: Wii U
Release date: December 4, 2015
Developer: Monolith Soft
Publisher Nintendo


As a JRPG fanatic that’s been craving a first-party AAA open-world experience on the Wii U since its initial launch in 2012, I’m happy to say that the wait is finally over as we’ve been graced with Monolith Soft’s ambitious Xenoblade Chronicles X, the spiritual successor to Wii’s equally ambitious and captivating Xenoblade Chronicles which was recently brought over to the New Nintendo 3DS in an updated fashion. Xenoblade Chronicles X puts players in a rich, vibrant world filled with a myriad of monsters, locations, and a deep story that tells the tale of civilization starting over, but bringing all these great things together in a cohesive way doesn’t go without fault.
