You might be asking, where is this fantastic deal being held? Best Buy, that’s where! For a limited time, the retail store is selling Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the discounted price of $19.99. This is half the regular price, so if you haven’t picked up a copy for yourself, this would be a good opportunity to do so!
Paper Mario has been a delightful series full of merriment and excitement–not to mention a whole lot of paper. There have been a lot of mixed opinions regarding the recent publication of the latest installment, Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Many publications have criticized the game for lacking a full storyline, and for using mostly Toads as NPCs. Are there any redeeming qualities in this game? You bet. Since you’ve probably heard the negative reviews by now, this analysis will focus mostly on the reasons this game is still worth buying. -Greg Boe (admin)

While at PAX East, NCharged editor Dallas Clement picked up a copy of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. When the game was announced back in 2011, he insisted that he should cover the review, so I’m keeping him to it! Expect a review from him soon! Also, I’m almost done with my reviews on Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Fire Emblem Awakening, which will both reviewed by the end of next week.
More reviews are on the way! -Greg Boe (admin)
People were really hard on Sticker Star. I can understand why people missed the story, and that fans have been waiting since 2007 for a new Paper Mario, but nonetheless it’s a fantastic game. The game does a great job at drawing you in, even when you only have a few minutes to play; something the other games couldn’t do with such a narrative-based structure.
I’ve only started playing the game as of this weekend, but once I’m done with it, I’ll probably write-up a review for those who still aren’t sure whether they want it or not. If you enjoy RPGs and want something to play in short intervals while on the go, this is the one to buy. Conversely, if you want a more immersive, customizable, and story-driven adventure, you’re better off with Fire Emblem: Awakening, which just released in retail stores, as well as the 3DS eShop. -Greg Boe (admin)
