I got New Super Mario Bros Wii for Christmas. I love the 2D mario platformers. On my Wii I have Super Mario Bros 1, 2, and 3 from NES, Super Mario World from SNES (probably my gave, lots of childhood memories), plus I have Super Paper Mario for Wii (mostly 2D), Super Mario Galaxy (3D but very cool game play), and now New Super Mario Bros Wii.
I just love the simplicity of them. Sometimes I find modern games too complex. Too much to worry about at any one time, too many buttons to know. The Super Mario Bros series is simple without being easy. If that makes sense. For instance, my dad can play it where he can't play other games, yet I can still find it challenging.
holy freak. got my new ps3 hooked up to my 1080p plasma tv and to my yamaha surround sound set.
ps3 is teh crap. you've gotta get MLB the show and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 when they come out in March. The latter will kick the crap out of Modern Warfare 2 (and the first one is just as good, though it's from 2008).
My first baseball game was MLB 2k9 on 360. Now that I have 2 ps3's, i think I might get one for it. I'm guessng you guys will get The Show? I've had demos, but I don't get that game. I prefer using the sticks to make getures for pitching and hitting than button presses. It doesn't help that they're demos and I have no manual to read to try to figure out the controls.
If you guys get this years bb game, I'll try to get the same one to maybe do some online matches.
