* New Mario to Cheat

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Nintendo's apparently got so little faith in gamers that the new Super Mario for Wii will be coming with a built-in cheat mode.

Yeah. It's like that. Didn't the game industry cover this bad idea a long while back?

Rather than forcing players to comb the web for cheat codes and walkthroughs, the new help system is built directly into the game. If a player gets stuck, they'll have the option to pause play and allow the game to take over and play itself through any rough patches. Once they're out of the woods, players can hop back in and continue playing.
I for one wish they'd rethink this whole concept. You might as well just set the game to autoplay and go get some popcorn.
