    Nintendo are a shadow of the game developers that they used to be.

    Been playing this, and the difficulty makes some of the levels seem more like a chore than fun.

    And that’s coming from someone who’s played almost every mario platformer since the first SMB.

    Really? We all thought the game was a tad easy. Or is that what you meant? Its lacking in challange and that lessens the appeal for you?

    I remember when we used to revere Japanese gamers as informed and intelligent in their buying prowess. What the fuck happened to them?
