    Too bad most are 2014. Oh well gives my wallet some breathing room since the ps4 launch is this year.

  • Adol Christin

    My top three would have to be, Wind Waker HD, Bayonetta 2 and Mario Kart 8.

    Bayonetta 2 is the only game that peaks my interest. Strange; seeing how I didn’t even play Bayonetta 1.

      I believe you should remedy that as soon as possible.

    I’ve no poblem with waiting till 2014 as I’m still busy with my PS3. ^^

    The SM3D World video was quite interesting.
    I like what they’ve done with pipes – it’s a neat idea.

    Not sure if I like the GamePad integration much – using it to hinder enemies and find items. It wasn’t intrusive in NSMBU, so I don’t think it’ll be a hindrance here. Camera Control will be interesting in Multiplayer. I wonder how well that will work.

    Mario Kart 8 is looking promising. I’m glad they did a course in the shape of a figure eight. Mind you, that really shouldn’t be a surprise. I like what they’re doing with replay functionality online.

      I agree with you. When they first showed us SM3D World, I was really skeptical as to how they were going to make it not feel like 3D Land, but I really like the multiplayer aspect, and I think it looks like a lot of fun.
      I really have to get my hands on a Wii U. Donkey Kong looks suberb as well. Country 2 is one of my all-time favorites :)

        Oh man. I hear that.

        DKC2 was a fantastic game. My favourite out of all the DK games. It was just brilliant. That soundtrack was ridiculously brilliant as well. Everything about it was great. Great platformer.
        I’d like to play the new DK game – I never played Returns though, but it looked pretty good.

        I’m looking forward to SM3D World – I think it’ll be a lot of fun. The video left me with a few concerns about the Gameplay – but Nintendo manage to get it right. And I’m confident they will this time too.

    Sal, thanks for posting these.

    It’s really interesting to get the developers view on what’s important in the game to them – interesting to see where their focus lies. I was surprised at how left-field it seemed to me (particularly the Wind Waker remake).
