I can't wait for Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Recently I've been pre-ordering a bunch of games, in anticipation for the Wii U, but it will be nice to walk into a shop again to buy this. I only ever order games online at hardware launches. I find it less hassle to go into a store since I'm not worried of missing my packages in the post.
Something's coming up the plumbing, poor Luigi's in a bind. Giant turtles are out to get him, Creepy Crabs are right behind. Spiders, flies. Jeepers! Yikes!, They're coming out the pipes. "MARIO! WHERE ARE YOU!!!"

Mario Kart 7's online doesn't work for people like me. I hope Nintendo Network gets fixed before Wii U comes out. I don't want a home console in which I can't go online with.

I'm hoping to get Kid Icarus: Uprising, Rhythm thief and the emperor's treasure and Kingdom hearts: dream drop distance.
Rock on, girl gamers.
Some of the greatest games, have some of the greatest music.
