Paper Mario: Color Splash just launched on Wii U, and it took center stage on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, as we're joined by GameXplain's Andre Segers to discuss the game's ups and downs.
Color Splash is a direct descendant of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and while Andre despises Sticker Star, I don't mind it for what it is. However, it means Andre sees Color Splash as a radical step up from Sticker Star, whereas I see it as a return-to-form of the original formula made worse for the Sticker Star mechanics it retained (and in some cases, amplified).
The whole discussion has been made available on YouTube, thanks to our wonderful video editor Erik Segriff, so if you were waiting for the video version to give it a watch, or just forgot to check it out until now, YouTube is now an option. It's a great watch if you're still deciding whether you want to pick up Sticker Star, so be sure to check it out!
