Mario is my master now....
With movies nobody (or at least nobody should) cares about opening this weekend, easily the biggest event going on is this Sunday's (Nintendo and their wacky release days) release of in some people's opinion one of the few reasons to own a Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's an extremely rare happening for a couple reasons-the last time we saw more than one Mario game (and crap like Mario & Sonic at the Olympics doesn't count) on a platform was way back in the original NES days. This is also the first game (not counting Super Mario Bros. 2 that was originally only released in Japan) that is really a direct sequel that refines the gameplay of the previous title rather than trying something completely different, and from all the rave early reviews so far, it was the correct decision, with many claiming it's the best platformer available right now. And while New Super Mario Bros was fun, it seemed like so much more could have been done with it and they were basically charging $50 for what could've been a top tier $20 downloadable title, because they can. So, it's good to not have to wait til a few years into whatever Nintendo has planned after the Wii for our next fix. Now, while we all anxiously await Sunday, enjoy these fun Mario Vids and a related game of the week:
