After playing into World 5 in Super Mario 3D, I’m feeling like maybe it wasn’t what I was anticipating. That’s 100% on me, because I buy new Mario games without doing research because even the worst Mario games, I still play. But I assumed it was more open world exploration like Odyssey or Paper Mario (or even Sunshine!), but it’s just kind of a standard ‘go to each level and beat it to go to the next level’ and I’m just .. not sure that’s what I was looking for in a game right now. I need something more immersive and complete as a time sink, something to just get lost in.
So I’m back to playing WoW in-between the hour or so I can sit and play the worlds without getting a little burnt out. I don’t hate it, I just don’t feel like I love it.
