Game Cube's Last Blast

Super Paper Mario is old school play, but with a twist. Hope it doesn't get lost in the new console shuffle

With all the hype that Nintendo' s putting into their forthcoming Wii console, something such as Super Paper Mario for the Nintendo GameCube may be put a little bit in the dark. That' s a shame, because it looks to be a nice "last blast" for the system, alongside the GameCube edition of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The implementation of different characters, play styles, and platforming techniques look to put a twist on the Paper Mario formula as we recognize it, and the essence of old-school is definitely around. Despite the fact the game has paper thin characters, it' s jam packed with goodness.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
