Milking a cash cow again

Why can't these two beloved icons star together in a game (excluding Brawl) that is NOT a compilation of minigames?  I'd like to see Robotnik team up with Bowser to take over the world.  I would love to see Mario and Sonic join forces, relying on each others special skills to save the day.

I wouldn't.

I think a Mario/Sonic crossover adventure wouldn't do so well, especially considering the current state of both companies' writers.
No! I don't want that!

Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

The only way a proper Sonic/Mario crossover would work is if it were 1999 instead of 2009.

Honestly, I think we all seen this coming. I bet Nintendo and Sega will be make a Mario and Sonic at the Super Bowl. Where instead of playing with a football, you play with a bullet bill...anyway, it seems pretty obvious that they're milking this for all it's worth. For shame, Nintendo...and pathetic Sega.

I guess the last one was just so successful they had to make another as fanservice! ! ! !

But yeah no, the only crossover I see as ever being any good is Smash Bros. Plots ruin crossovers, and other non-plotted games (like sports games) suck.

Wait

All your dreeeeeeams begiiin to shatterrrrrr~

If they make the game utilize Wii MotionPlus and use the Balance Board intuitively, I'd like to see how it turns out, as the original was criticized for the odd controls.

We seriously don't need another one of these. The first one sucked bad enough.

To be honest, I don't want Nintendo and Sega combining forces to make a Mario/Sonic platform title either. Sega would totally screw everything up. They had a chance to bring Sonic back from oblivion with Sonic Unleashed, but they blew that chance and then some. I wish Sega would sell Sonic over to Nintendo (I know, that'll never happen) because other companies seem to be the only ones who know how to make a decent Sonic games nowadays (BioWare proved that wholeheartedly).

I just thought it was so sad that prepubescent boys et al waited over a decade for an epic crossover of these classic mascots... and it came in a unoriginal minigame collection/plug for the Olympics.

I'd be sadder about being prepubescent for ten years.

Everyone was prepubescent for at least ten years straight.

Except Glorb.
