I vividly remember the first time I saw Super Mario 64. My friend got the Nintendo 64 right when it came out, and I went to his house with some other friends after school to check it out. We spent a good 20 minutes messing with Mario’s face in the title screen and the rest of our time running around the outside of Princess Peach’s castle. My friends were completely floored by the 3D gameplay, and I was completely, utterly disappointed. I just hated it. It looked bad to me: rounded corners were too sharp, the depth was hard to visualize, and Mario just didn’t… look… right. I never understood why all my friends thought Super Mario 64 was basically the coolest thing ever. Perhaps I would forever be a 2D kind of girl.
Well, now I think I know the awe my friends felt that day. I just booted up Style Savvy: Trendsetters for the 3DS. It’s like the first Style Savvy but in three-dee! THREE-DEE, you guys! <3 <3 <3 I was admittedly a little nervous about how the sequel would turn out (some sequels are awesome, some are not), but this is definitely exceeding my expectations so far.
