Man. If Superboy Prime were here, he could punch the walls of my room until a copy of Super Mario Galaxy just continuity errored its way into my hands...

Obsessions, should I go into great detail about how ridiculously fun this game is? Cause it's fun. Awesome fun.

I'm at 80, but I'm taking a break myself. I probably won't complete this game before I fly home on Wednesday where my sweet, sweet copy of Mass Effect awaits me. Still, whenever I need a break from shooting aliens I will go back for some fun Mario times.

I'm considering buying a Wii just so I can play this game. I have $550 sitting in my drawer right now... Unfortunately I don't think my flat is big enough for the amount of movement I've found the Wii requires and I was planning on spending that money on a new tattoo... DILEMMA!

How do you guys afford all these games? I'm looking at you Johnny and Storm Rider... you're both students are you not? I dunno how much they cost in the states but games here are about $99 NZD which is about $65 USD... My rent is $140 a week, about $90USD, HOW DO YOU BUY SO MANY GAMES AND AFFORD TO LIVE?

Well, I worked part-time for 3 years in high school and saved up a lot of money. Also, I really don't spend money on much else. I wasn't like everyone else in my high school who spent money on alcohol and pot. Plus, I live on campus so I don't have rent. Well, I do, but it's all included in my housing fees, which I don't pay myself.

Gaming in various forms is my main hobby (probably to the point it might be considered a lifestyle) and I don't spend my money on much else other than bills and rent.

Basically, you have to be "that" kid that got the shit kicked out of him in grade/middle/high school because you played video games before it was cool. It's glamorous I know.

Oh, I love the demand for the Wii. Last night, I practically got off on telling a girl who visited with my friend Cesar why she wasn't going to get a Wii this holiday season.

"I"m buying a Wii in the next couple of weeks."

"Ha! Yeah, sure you are."

"No, really. I've got the money and everything."

"Oh, I don't doubt it. The thing is, the Wii is presently in just as high demand as last Christmas being the top gift two years in a row. Now that it's officially the Holiday shopping period at the end of the week, you're not going to get a Wii without having to camp out and you don't appear to be physically built for a twelve hour stay in front of Toys R' Us in the cold New England winter. But hey! Good luck to you!"

I swear, it was like telling a four year old there's no Santa Clause and then punching them in the stomache.

Played this last night. Way more fun than any previous Mario game as far as I'm concerned. A little frustrating when using spring Mario but otherwise awesome.

JEALOUSY

Anyway, just got around to getting it. I seem to be the only man alive who really liked Sunshine, but I like this game a lot. It's good fun. Consistently great level design, cute characters, the works. I'm going through it relatively slow, just got to that first marble level (the "Green Green Galaxy" or something?) and am going nuts trying to balance on that damned ball.

Because Sunshine seemed pretty derivative and like it was trying too hard to be Mario 64 2, but ended up so much worse.

It had a completely different control scheme with an entirely different way of doing platforming than Mario 64. I'd argue that Galaxy is much more the planned sequel to 64, and ended up outdoing Mario 64 in every way possible.

Sunshine certainly wasn't anywhere near as good as 64 was, but I found it entirely enjoyable.

Sunshine was alright, really. If it wasn't a Mario game it would have been praised much higher, but in comparison with other Mario games which are universally stellar, it just sort of fell short.

I could never figure out why Mario Sunshine was so awful. I just know that Mario 64 and Mario Galaxy have sucked me in completely, and Mario Sunshine didn't engage me on any level at all. I played it for a couple hours or so, and kept thinking that it was going to get better and that I was going to suddenly 'click' and it would just start being fun, but it just never happened.

I found that it got better for me if I treated the remote like the joystick it wants to be in that part. I planted the bottom of the remote on my leg and used it like a joystick, not letting the bottom of the remote move.

Actually, after I realized that the circumference line around the ball represented the orientation of the wiimote, it got a lot easier, less accidental deaths and such. I just learned to take it slow.

I'm currently banging my head against the wall while trying to get past the ice world.

Buckle down, Nancy.  Metroid: Corruption gets absurdly easy about midway through the Pirate planet, and you waft through the rest of the game in a couple of hours.  It's only annoying if you want the special endings at 75/100 and 100/100 pick-ups.

I've got 112/120 in Galaxy and I couldn't be bothered to get the super secret bonus for 120 as long as I have Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4 to play through.  Fabulous game.  The Super Monkey Ball levels were particularly awesome although the final Bowser fight was way, way, way too easy.

Exactly. My friends had burned through something like 15 or 20 lives getting through the final level, and I jumped it at the Bowser fight and won in one try. It would've been anticlimactic, if I had expected anything other than imaginative level design from this game.
