Paper Mario Color Trash. At least it looks pretty...?

Very disappointed in Color Splash. Everyone was pretty much right in how the battle system would work: Cards act as the stickers from Sticker Star, with paint acting as a sort of Power Meter of sorts. Once again, cards and paint are going to act as another reason to act more conservatively as opposed to grinding for experience and better abilities. 

Unless I missed something - I only watched as far as the first battle.

There is a very slight benefit to fighting more battles, and that's that you can boost your max paint, but that still doesn't seem like enough.

I mean the music sounds fantastic, the visuals are on point, and the opening to the trailer shown was actually pretty cool, but the battle system is still pretty awful, the story will probably just be Bowser again as the main villain, and there's no experience or proper partners. And the TOADS! Oh my god...

Ah, well I guess that's a bit of a reward - still nowhere near the amount of incentive as the previous titles. Even SPM had more reason to get into battles. :/ 

I agree completely. This game has a solid background to stand upon - it's just falling short of everything else that it needs to make it a superb game. This series has been drained of all of its personality.... 


OH MY GOD, THE PLOT OF THIS GAME IS LITERALLY AN ALLEGORY OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE PAPER MARIO SERIES.

Okay so I heard in an interview that the developers wanted the Mario and Luigi Series to be the RPG series and the Paper Mario is now... this... crap...
Just watch this... it hurts. www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlcNub…

I had seen that - it's such bullshit, honestly. The sad thing is that their feelings towards that are 100% true, and it's painful to see that they don't understand how different the dynamics worked out in both the M&L series vs the Paper Mario series. Mario and Luigi was always about making more out of less; instead of having a crap ton of badges selected, you had to make sure you had the ONE badge that worked out for you (as well as the gear and extra slot). The battle system is much more tense - making you have to interact with enemies constantly. 

Paper Mario was more about precision and bulk; make yourself the strongest you can be, make your allies the best they can be. They reduced that down to just the bare bones and called it a game.

It's so sad.
