Awesome! Going off this review and all the positive buzz this game has been getting, I think it actually has a really good chance of being the second best Mario game ever! :D

This. I'm sure Mario won't be bad at least, but that already gives me pause.

And of course, I'm getting Mario anyways.

Cool! Wonder if we'll see another 10 on Switch. Not expecting so, but either way this is rewarding my relatively early adoption nicely.

We gonna get a mod renaming the thread to something about how edge hands out too many 10s this generation?

Anyway, super excited about Odyssey. A new 3D Mario. What a time to be alive. That doc about Mario sunshine speedrunning got me super psyched.

I think it will score higher or as high as BoTW did so this is not a surprise. I also think it will be GoTY over BoTW.

Wasn't expecting anything less.

Hopefully it gels with me more than BotW did though. It should. Looks absolutely stellar.

Awesome. And from edge (at least to me) that 10 actually means something.


So Im probably going to move from game of the gen candidate breath of the wild to game of the gen candidate Mario Odyssey

The switch purchase I made a month ago is starting to feel worth it already with these 2 games alone.

I wonder what the negatives might be in various reviews for this game. Maybe visual styles? A lot of people here don't like New Donk City's style.

I'd say maybe lack of platforming but the more we see of this game the more we know that's just not true at all.

Unlike Zelda, which had the lack of traditional dungeons and weapons breaking as common complaints, this game might not have any of those types of complaints to worry about. I could see it having a higher MC score than Zelda. Which is nuts.

Isn't this only the third of this gen? BotW, Bloodborne and this?

Was in reference to the thread about Divinity's 10 from gamespot.

Yeah no doubt there will be plenty of traditional challenges, but I hope getting everything is fun all the way through... There's a difference between korok seeds and this. Those seeds are just extra things you collect on your way in the main game, but those moons are the bread and butter. I'm a completionist if it's doable, but I didn't consider spending 100 hours on this game like BotW. When the first Galaxy came out, I got all 120 stars in a single weekend and felt that was perfect in length. Guess I won't be completing this in a few days :p

But hey, if there's as much variation in the levels as the footage seems to show, then I may just get them all.
