    Dragon Quest Terry’s Wonderland 3D, do want :x Looks amazing!

  • Nothing that really exciting to me. I want to learn more about Luigi’s Mansion 2 and the new Paper Mario for the 3DS.

    If I had a 3DS, I’d be getting Mario Tennis Open.
    The Mario Tennis on GCN is a lot of fun – great multiplayer. Challenging. Excellent.

    So, I’m confident Mario Tennis Open will be a good game.

    (They didn’t bother with a proper Mario Tennis on Wii, unfortunately, they just hacked apart the GCN version with motion controls.)
