Mario XCOM 2?
« on: May 26, 2020, 07:43:49 pm »
So as Senpai Lurk will tell you, I am always waiting for the mythical Mario Kart 8 DLC. It will happen. Believe you me.

But. Another one I am looking for is a sequel to one of the best games around: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. This game was so good, so fresh, and so collaborative. I want a sequel. The idea is not tired yet and can be iterated at least once. Maybe twice if they don't totally botch this imaginary sequel. But dude... during this year's NOT E3, I want that MarioRabbids sequel.

And Kart DLC.

What instead of another Mario XCOM, they started mashing Mario up with other old PC games? Imagine a Black Isle-style Mario CRPG.

That could be a lot of fun too, done in a visually improved Super Mario RPG aesthetic.

I'd like to see the ideas of Kingdom Battle refined and expanded upon thought. But I think Yves lost the Nintendo deal. :U

That's a bummer. As much as it sucks when something doesn't get a chance to be iterated on, I think it's kind of overwhelming how every game has to have a million sequels and it's honestly refreshing when an idea is one-and-done.

I find one sequel to be acceptable.

2 is usually a great time and can be better than the first. Banjo-Tooie and Terminator 2 come to mind.

That's fair, also Portal 2 and Half Life 2 come to mind. Whenever something decides to be a trilogy I'd say there's a 50/50 chance it stays good and any entries after that drop into the low teens. See: Metal Gear Solid.

Yeah Metal Gear is just embarrassing after a while.

MGS4 is probably the most purely embarrassing Metal Gear, MGSV gets a pass for basically being a good version of Far Cry with the **** writing interspersed throughout.

At least both of those series (MGS and Far Cry) have fun gameplay.

Anime-tier story can stay home though

*goes back to Chrono Trigger*

Depending on the game, Far Cry either has excellent writing or is peak hack fraud trash.

I liked the second one where you had malaria and the Somalians were omniscient beings in compact cars, able to burst from the underbrush at 60 miles per hour.
