It’s Friday, and that means there’s no use in thinking any actual thoughts. Instead, let’s be content with purchase lust. Or covetousness. Or good old-fashion greed. Or something. What I really mean to say is, I want Super Mario Galaxy, and I want it now.

Why do I pine so? It’s not just because this is a major title on a system I support with great reviews. It’s not even because this game is a total cock tease. Is it being released now? How about now? It’s because I am and always have been a Mario girl at heart–and Galaxy looks like the first Mario game that might be able to recapture some of that “holy bejesus” Super Mario 64 magic. Is it possible I’ve never ranted before about my trippy, life-altering, over-dramatic and preteen Mario 64 experience? Another time, another time.

The point is this: the screenshots are shint; the footage is a bit nauseating. I might as well be sitting in my living room waving around a little Nintendo pendant. Here’s hoping that after months of (albeit skeptical) anticipation this Mario girl won’t get let down.

    with that kind of hype, you’re bound to be let down. I checked the game out at a gamestop and got up to like 7 stars before I decided to stop and head towards my job interview. From a mere hour and a half-or-so’s worth of play, I have to say that it felt like more of the same: its mario, he’s jumping and stuff. I just hope the game gets more involving as you progress.

    I feel your pain. Even worse, even when I buy it on Tuesday, my lovely wife says I can’t play it until Christmas since it’s for the whole family (including the kids).

    So I have to wait :(.

    Goddamn women with their crazy rules. Will she ever know if you play it through once before Xmas and erase all the data? Oh wait, that’s dishonest or something. Alas…

    Bonnie, my son feels your pain. He is truly the biggest Mario fan I’ve ever known. To give you an idea, he builds little Marios out of Legos.

    Bonnie, I got SMG. I love SMG. I’ve got about 11 or so stars. I’m waiting to see if the pains of repetition will set in in the upcoming galaxies, but I’m doubting it.
