Sooner or later there won't be much around
Tell that to your kids while you're drivin' round downtown
That there's only so much oil in the ground

I remember that

I just find it shocking that it was released JUST THIS year

kinda like the same feeling I had when Anthem was released this year too

It also sold worse than a difficult-to-acquire dancing spin-off game back in 2005.

So been playing some Wario's Woods lately.

If ya like puzzle games of the tetris/DrMario/PuyoPop etc etc variety then I can definitely recommend this one.

It's unfortunate how poorly the BIS remake sold, but I personally was quite happy with it. Considering how BIS skipped VC and how it's kind of difficult to acquire the original, it was essentially everything I had been asking for for years.

I mean a PiT remake would have been great too, maybe better for some people since the original had more flaws to iron out, but unlike BIS, it was released on VC. The original could have benefit more from a remake than SS and BIS, yes, but I could also just flip on my Wii U and play it digitally. BIS didn't have that.

I mean, this is all just how it benefit me personally, and I know some people here are just going to quote this and say "vc doesnt matter b/c wii u was a flop" or even crack some "what is wii u" jokes (in which case I kindly go to your house and kill you in your sleep for having an objectively wrong opinion), but...it really did feel like a personal thing. In fact, it's the only game announcement I've ever experienced that actually felt personal. It was fanservice more than anything, yes, but it was unique in that it went the extra mile to please a small minority. And I just have to applaud it for that.

Nothing corporations do to you is personal or out of general kindness. They just want your money. They sometimes have respect for their customers and trot out a genuinely good product. Sometimes they are more blatant and disrespectful in wanting your money. Either way, they're not really pleasing a small minority, they're just making a budget game (especially given how AlphaDream's financial problems) to cash on nostalgia and positive reception and failed.

Waluigi was relegated to a first-world boss, though. Doesn't even appear in the rest of the game once you beat him, not even in credits (unlike Wario). I mean, he did kinda started the story, but that's the most credit I'll give to him.

ddr mario mix is very underrated. i loved the game's soundtrack and...well we won't get another ddr in a long long while

Such is the fate of a Waluigi

And yeah, I loved the heck out of that game when it came out. I was also a child that was unaware of how unpopular the GC was, as I kinda shoved it onto the whole neighborhood

bowser is more of a main villain in ddr than waluigi is, since he's the final boss and he has the keys because he's tone deaf

it sorta annoys me that people bring up ddr only to talk about that purple fucker rather than the fact it's a pretty fun rhythm game with good mario / classical music electronica cover versions

i like the fact that the rocket you use to beat bowser doesn't explode on him; it just takes out a hammer and smashes him with it

I'd argue the game is villainless since Waluigi starts it and Bowser ends it but by and large they only matter at the beginning and ending respectively.

Hey speaking of Mario DDR, and of random thoughts, and of somewhere in the forums someone talked about playing M&L: PiT multiplayer with the GC GBA Adapter,

I attempted to play various GBC & GBA Mario games with the dance pad. SMB was quite difficult to properly jump

Does anyone else still remember there's a BIS remake on the 3DS for no goddamn reason?
How could I forget?! It may not have been necessary but it sure warmed my heart to see the game remastered in 3DS style.

Shame it was released on a dead console to a cold uncaring audience because if it had fared better AlphaDream might still be around.

About a year ago I went to a restaurant and one of the items on the menu was called "Mini peach apple cobbler". It didn't have anything to do with Mini Peach, but it's still a hilarious coincidence that's mention-worthy, especially considering that I used to be obsessed with Mario vs. Donkey Kong.
