you can always try a demo version at your local Gamestop or Best Buy (if they've changed it over from NSMBW). I'd say if you didn't like SMG, though, you probably won't like SMG2 either, considering it's more of the same so far (but in a great way). :3

It's like, I just love a cowboy
You know
I'm just like, I just, I know, it's bad
But I'm just like
Can I just like, hang off the back of your horse
And can you go a little faster?!

I miss the days when the internet was in it's infancy. I miss the days when a game was released elsewhere, but you'd hear nothing or see nothing of it until it reached your shores. We used to receive games months after US launch, and it wasn't that difficult to bare. These days, 18 days can seem like an eternity.

Quick question:
If you die enough times that the cosmic rosalina apears, but you don't have her show you the way, it is still going to be a gold star right?

Yes.

The first time she popped up it scared the hell out of me

I haven't died enough times yet to see her. I'm already through to the 4th world, with no signs of the challenge picking up. Maybe I'm too good.

Galaxy 2 just passed Galaxy on Metacritic and now has a 98 score due to an A from The Onion (AV Club) and a 10/10 from Eurogamer. The only other games on Metacritic that have a 98 or higher are GTA 4 (for both systems), Soulcaliber (Dreamcast), Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (Playstation), and Ocarina of Time (N64, of course). Ocarina of Time is the only one that has a 99.

Wow, Eurogamer gave it a 10/10? Im suprised they didn't give it an 8, since they have to be different than everybody else. That's crazy SMG2 has got a 98. Im guessing all reviews are in?

Why are those chance dice so FUN?!? I spent all my StarBits on the Luma Casino!

I'm only maybe five stars in, rented it today. Please tell me the inane Luma dialog between levels ceases some time soon. I wish I could choose to bypass the ridiculously pointless starship and just go straight to the map between levels.

Come on, friends,

It ceases, Adam. Well, not ceases...but drops off significantly. It won't be long (if any longer) before he's just reporting significant things you might wish to investigate.

Nintendo Power's isn't. And seeing as the magazine is called Nintendo Power, you don't really have to guess at the score...

I beg to disagree. I didn't like the first one, but i love the second one :3

Oh. My. God. This. Game. Is. Hard. I've been trying to do Supermassive Galaxy's Big Wiggler Speed Run for like an hour. I have the max amount of Star Bits, and I always get right to the end before I die. It's so annoying, but I can't put it down....

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

At e3, Nintendo said it was going to have about 95% new planets, so, what 5% of the Planets are in galaxy 2, which ones are they?

I can't figure out how to use the items and power-ups in the engine room. How do you get them out of their cases? Can you even use them?

nothankyou

They said 95% new content.

I think its just there to look at. I can't use them. Maybe after a lot of stars?

Since I know everyone is dying for my impressions, here's what I think so far (just made it to World 3).

Starship Mario is so pointless, gaudy, and generally a horrible idea that I am certain B Plus somehow had a hand in it.

That fat Luma is an annoying waste of time and an even worse character than the Delfino. I would gladly trade him for Galaxy 1's boring hub. Wastes about the same amount of time.

Though the checkpoint system is a nice addition, each level so far seems to use this plus the catapult stars (whatever they're called) as an excuse to link completely random level pieces together and call it a level.

The power-ups are somehow even worse than Galaxy 1's. And that includes Yoshi, who is essentially now a dinosaur-shaped power-up, made even worse by the fact that you constantly have to have the controller pointed at the screen, limiting your options for how you sit in relation to the TV.

Unless there is a giant difficulty curve halfway through the game, I have to believe that everyone got so caught up in Nintendo's hype that they've convinced themselves this is somehow difficult. Still not far enough to judge though.

And worst of all, tiny planetoids are still not fun. The controls get all screwed up, as does the camera, and it's just a headache for the sake of a gimmick.

Like I've found in all the 3D Mario games, the single objective galaxies (or just levels, in Sunshine and 64) are still by far the best and seem to me what Mario should be doing. It makes me wonder why someone doesn't take these kind of short, pure 3D platforming levels and make them into like a 3D version of Meatboy / Jumper / N / what-have-you.

I was getting pretty interested but with Adam's post there I've effectively been talked away for now.

Does anyone know if the REAL Rosalina makes an apperance? I think that the mysterious letters for the baby luma are from her, but I am still not sure.

What are the top 10 differences between SMG and SMG2? And don't give me anything vague like "more expansive worlds" or whatever.
