Well the game has been released folks! Feel free to discuss it here!

As for me I haven't even made it out of town yet but I 'm really liking it. The gameplay is great and the stickers are fun to collect.

Thrawn, please tell me you've found all the toads. I have been searching for ages trying to find this last one. IT'S DRIVING ME NUTS.

You checked in every house, as well as behind the houses? There was one in a trash can, in one of those houses. Also, there's one inside of a bush.

Found it! It was behind some poster in the very first section. Don't know how I didn't notice that at first.

I had trouble finding the one that was pasted behind the two houses.

How about the one hanging like laundry. LOL!

It's so awesome to have a new Paper Mario game, again. It hasn't been anything spectacular so far, but that isn't to say it hasn't been fun. I'm only about an hour in and I've already had a few laughs.

It definitely brings back memories. I've enjoyed the series since the first one. I yep think the whole sticker aspect is pretty cool but I do miss having followers/partners. But I'm only an hour into it, so who knows?

I haven't gotten really stuck yet but last night I had a hell of a time at the Goomba fortress. I could not for the life of me figure out how to shut off the wind.

I got stuck there too. Took me quite a while!

I was kind of disappointed with the new battle mechanics. It really surprised me to see that it is a turn-based non-RPG. Having to worry about not having enough stickers (and sometimes having too many) bugged me also. Overall the system is ok with me, I was just expecting better.

One thing I was really happy about, though, was that they still have the cute humor that always belongs in a Paper Mario game!

The best way I can think to describe this game's battle system is think turn-based card fighter, like those Mega Man navi games.

I think they did a pretty good job with the battle system. The stickers add some extra challenge because you have to be careful where you use them.

I got stuck at the Yoshi Sphinx today.

Made it to 1-3 before my battery dies. Been enjoying it so far. The music has been good and the story seems okay so far. Battles are pointless since you don't really get anything from them and Bowser Jr. was way to easy.

The game does look great in 3D though.

Once you get to World 2 you should start finding unique stickers from foes. This helps at least.
