Why do people care about Mario games? The platforming looks like a nightmare and platforming is the only thing you do in the game. 12 hours of them.

Quicklooks everywhere.

Guess I will be buying a Wii U again to rent and play this game, and then return the Wii U for a full refund from where I bought it (a place that rhymes with ballmart). Yes I am a bastard, a cheap cheap bastard. Sorry Nintendo :(

I'm generally not that interested but this looks like some manic-ass fun.

The giantbomb crew plays the game how I'd like to play it, but ugh.... I have 3 autistic children I babysit, this game is going to be a Nightmare like New Super Mario Bros was.

Brad, YOU NEED TO FINISH GALAXY!

Jeff mentions that the ending of Super Mario Galaxy was insane. I beat SMG in like 2007 so I don't remember what was so insane about it. Can anyone fill me in? Wasn't it just Mario saves the Princess yet again?

Posted by MikeLemmer

Well, Mario saves the Princess and remakes creation in the process.

hearing this second hand but it's basically like SM3DL in that you think you've beaten the game but then mario comes out and says NEW GALAXY and you've got a whole crapload of new levels. basically killed my friend's will to continue playing lol.

or maybe what MikeLemmer was talking about. i'm really not sure personally.

I really want to buy a Wii-U now to play this, but damn this game looks so easy. Anyone know if this game is actually challenging?

The platforming is usually really good. There's a lot of room for skill even though the games themselves don't usually require much of it until late game (sadly). Lot of neat systems going on that does vary up the action. That cat suit looks amazing in what it lets you do with the climbing and the dive kick.

It's not the Galaxy team exactly. It's the Galaxy 2 team.

Damn it. Now i need to get a Wii U.

Now I'm curious to hear the music that Patrick said was the best in the game

Posted by Cold_Wolven

I come for a QL of SM3DW, I stay for the hilarious teamwork.

Edited by fetchfox

Haha, these guys are so cooperative.

I absolutely love the music at 11:28.

Game looks fucking fantastic (of course it does, it's a Mario game), but still not enough to justify purchasing a Wii U for me. The Super Mario Galaxy games were easily some of the greatest games of this generation, without a doubt, but even then, with those two games and a handful of other exclusives - I still regretted purchasing a Wii at full price. After cutting through the handful of great exclusives on that system, it really just turned into a paperweight. You REALLY have to care about those first party Nintendo IPs to justify buying a Nintendo system, in my opinion.

I look forward to playing this and whatever great Zelda title pops up down the road, but only after I can buy one and the games at a cheaper price, probably a year from now or so.

Wait, Super Mario 3D World is not on the 3DS?

Edited by m1k3

I really wished they would have played some kind of 4-player Mario game during the Extra Life stream. Need more quick looks with more than 2 people playing. I always find them hilarious.

That smooth frame rate looks so good!

As for the story of Super Mario Galaxy, I'm guessing they are referring to Rosalina's back story and what happens to Mario's Luma at the end of the story.

Posted by Zaxex

I'll probably get a Wii U next year, its first party titles are starting to add up. It's a shame Nintendo still hasn't been able to court third parties exceptionally well though - as good as Nintendo's games are, personally that's not enough to spend much time with their systems.

Posted by thomasonfa

Jeff is pretty good at Mario(Luigi) Bros.

Posted by ptys

F*&k, with this and Mario Kart you ask the question. Why can't the other two get their shit together with the mascot thing? I remember even back in the "Crach Bandicoot" days, that was just a cheap knock off of Mario 64. Give Japanese development all the shit you want, but these Nintendo guys know the secret sauce and no-one can get even close!

Posted by paulunga

Brad, you're the worst.

Posted by JackSukeru

@eribuster: I think they've talked about before how in the ending of SMG a character implies that Mario is doomed to repeat this song and dance with Bowser and the princess kidnapping for all eternity. Or something.

I really didn't get that out of it, even going back and replaying it after the fact so I just don't see it. I think it was first brought up during a goty podcast.

girl got that fat cat butt

Edited by paulunga

I think it's hilarious how Nintendo does the whole "you're a shadow on the wall" mechanic as a one-off level while other people base their whole games around it.

Also, a surprising amount of original music, not just remixes. I like it!

Edit: Those goombas look like the ones from Super Mario World.

In the 120-star ending of Super Mario Galaxy, Bowser's galaxy reactor thing implodes taking out the entire universe with it. Then Rosalina, who it's implied at several points in the game is basically a god, recreates the universe from scratch. After this Mario and the other characters awaken to find themselves at the comet festival thing from the start of the game, only this time Bowser's there passed out on the grass and doesn't kidnap Peach.

So yeah, kind of insane.

Edit: Oh man I watched like ten minutes of this video and that's enough for me. This looks fantastic and I want to go into it with as little prior knowledge as possible.

It's still got Mario, it's still fantastic & it's still a game for jerks.
I'm in!
