    I'm really hoping Bowser doesn't end up being the final boss in this, and they continue the trend of the past two games by giving that role to someone who isn't completely obvious.

    The game will probably be more like NSMB. You just go through different worlds, fight a random creature (a bunch of goombas, a pokey with a crown, etc), and unlock new worlds. Then you will go to Bowser's area, maybe fight Bowser Jr, then fight Bowser, rescue Peach while flying off on something sticker related. The end

    I dread the thought of the story being that shallow and doing away with the little sub-plots the chapters in the previous games had...

    Me too Rakurai. I truly don't understand the lack of effort this game has. I mean if it was being developed by a different company I can understand. But still... This feels less Paper Marioish than Super Paper Mario.

    I hope it redeems it self with a fantastic game soon after like Kirby did with Return to Dreamland after a game that didn't feel like a Kirby game like this doesn't feel like a Paper Mario game.

    I wonder what the hell took them two years to develop. It seems they only came up with the sticker gimmick midway through. I really liked what they had planned in 2010 when I saw it though. Sigh...

    the plot of PM1 was "Bowser steals the star rod", TTYD was "Peach found a Treasure Map" and SPM was "Peach and Bowser get married, cause chaos"
    obviously there was more to it than that and I'm willing to believe that, hey, there's probably more to it here, too

    edit: and we don't even know the context of the "worlds" concept either
    The dungeons in PM1/TTYD were effectively their own little courses.
    SPM literally had levels

    Yeah I know, which is why I'm not discontent with the world map. In fact I prefer it, it makes it easier to travel. I just don't like how they're called World X-X. SPM at least called it Chapter X-X. Which makes me believe that chapters aren't in this game.

    And at least those plots are kind of creative. This plot sounds like the beginning of a Super Mario Galaxy game

    I really like how enemies can also interact with the Paperization mode. It seems really cool.

    Here's people reviewing the game for those who seem interested.

    I haven't watched it yet so I'll edit this post with my thoughts

    edit: Okay no words on the storyline, but the dialogue still is comedy and doesn't feel like zombies. I doubt we'll have a good plot, but oh well the rest of the game seems really fun. The whole sticker mechanic seems really in depth and actually a better combat system than previous paper mario games from the looks of it. I doubt this will be my favourite game since it lacks a good plto, plus classic Paper Mario stuff have been removed, but it looks like a fresh and fun game on its own.

    To be honest, I never really valued partners that much. It just felt like an extra attack with a variety of action commands. Yes it was cool to see what species they were, but they weren't too a big deal.

    The sticker system on the other hand looks so much fun!

    The sticker thing seems really fun if you ask me!

    I'd rather have new partners. One of the very few things I didn't like about TTYD is that they didn't introduce any new enemy partners, just rehash of old ones, completely original stuff, or friendly creatures. The whole fun is you seeing that the majority of the species aren't bad, it's just the ones that work for Bowser are.

    I'd love to have a Chain Chomp, baby Whomp, Magikoopa, and Shy Guy partner

    If by "these", he means a trailer, then yes, this would be the first time he's showing up in one.

    In any case, the OCD side of me is going to feel a need to have at least one of every type of sticker at all times.

    Well, I tried it today when an expo I went to surprisingly had it available for play.

    In short, any fears I had about the game are gone.
        Spoiler:- game info:

    Also has release dates now! December 7th for Europe/Australia. \o/

    To be honest, I never really valued partners that much. It just felt like an extra attack with a variety of action commands. Yes it was cool to see what species they were, but they weren't too a big deal.
    I felt they offered variety to gameplay styles in each case, and moreso were just great characters that had their own story, motivation for helping you, etc, that adding to the story in full. What they are in the end doesn't bother me too much, but I guess in this case for battles they aren't so necessary, so to speak.

    How is the beginning promising enough to not have a simple plot? Plus I don't see what they can do with Bowser as the main villain.
