Yeah I want to see how MP10 deals with Bowser if you only have two players. A little bummed to see the "all in one car" mechanic come back, but I have to admit it made the games much shorter. Just didn't like the lack of strategy it introduced on the board.
So far, super pumped for:
Layton vs. Ace Attorney Mario Party 10 - Looks like some more of the same as MP9 but I liked what I played of that. Any party game I can play with Amanda gets a thumbs up. Yoshi's Wooly World - Way more interested in this than Yoshi's Epic Yarn. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (is this going to be the final name or what?) Xenoblade Chronicles X (can't wait) Zelda (I want answers - what's up with the main character? Is it Link? Is it a girl? What's going on??)
Less excited/on the fence about: Amiibo - One the one hand, I like this better than DLC - it's kind of like a key (so maybe we wouldn't have to pay for DLC per game). What happens if you put Link on the Gamepad when you're playing Mario Kart?? I have to see it in action. So far, not interested with what it does in Smash. Captain Toad - I think Amanda is more excited about this than me. I liked the Captain Toad stuff, but I don't know if I liked it enough to buy a full game. Mario Maker - I WANT to be SUPER excited about this but I'm afraid it's going to be way more limiting than I'm hoping for. I really hope it lets us use different graphical styles, music, maybe a world map editor, etc. I really would want them to go ALL out on this. It'd be cool if there was a small downloadable game on 3DS that could download these levels as well. Just a small game that could latch onto the 'hooks' of the Wii U version.
