    I have been looking forward to this game for some time now but haven't followed it nearly as much as Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It seems like Smash Bros. is overshadowing this game so with the release date drawing closer I thought now would be a good time to start a thread about Super Mario Galaxy. One of the things that influenced me to post this is an article at 1UP.com titled "10 reasons Mario Galaxy could be a perfect 10." After reading that article I must say I was even more excited for this game. I have posted a link to the article below.

    This is really looking like it could be the best Mario game ever. It screams classic Mario with all the power-ups, new and old, but has a style that sets it apart. One thing is for sure this is a must own game for Wii this year.

    What are your opinions of the game? Do you plan to get it? Please share your thoughts on Mario's latest adventure as we get ready for one of the greatest games to be released this year.

    I'd be excited for it if it wasn't on the Wii.

    I'm looking forward to it, but I probably won't get around to playing it until after Christmas. As Primus said, GH3, Rock Band, and LOTRO will have most of my attention. I've still never unwrapped Metroid Prime 3 yet. The Wii will get it's use during the after-holiday gaming lull.

    I'm so fucking looking forward to it. I can't wait to buy this game. I'm getting a 360 this week, and I'm afraid I won't be using it much because of Mario. : /

    Can't wait to grab this. I'll probably get MP3 at the same time. Then save up all the post-december releases like SSBB, Mario Kart etc, Godzilla, etc.

    I had no desire to get this at all, I thought it looked cheesy and gimmicky.

    Then I played the demo at a local Gamestop and fell in love.

    DAMN YOU MARIO!!

    I put $10 down at Target to reserve it, but have no f-ing clue how I'm going to come up with the other $40. PENTHOUSE gave it a stellar review-"just as awesome as Mario 64."

    The only way I could come up with $53.36 ($49.99+6.75% tax in Ohio), is if I sell some of my Transformers, or sacrifice a few DVDs or video games.

    12 days to go...

    I am absolutely going to have to buy this game, if for no other reason than my girlfriend worships everything Mario and she will freak when I surprise her with it. I know she same something about it when we got the Wii, but since it has taken so long to come out, I think she has forgotten. Anyway, if the hype is even remotely true, this game should be a blast.

    Now, when is Mario Kart Wii coming out???

    IGN, Gamestop, and 1UP.com have the 12th and I've seen the 13th somewhere else but since most stores stock on Tuesday I'm going with the 13th. I haven't seen the 14th anywhere and releasing it on a Wednesday would be odd.

    I actually reserved this cause it will be my first Wii game to get me to sit down and play with my Wii for an extended period of time, but it will have to pry me away from Call of Duty 4 though which may be difficult.

    We have had the game up to play where I work at Gamestop and I'm on it every chance I get. It's nice cause it's not a demo but the full game, but we do have to clear the memory on the Wii every night so people don't play to the end and start spoiling it for everyone on the internet.
