Wow, for a bit I thought there wasn't going to be any fail blogs today. Thankfully some choice community members did not disappoint!
I sadly am giving up on Super Mario Galaxy. Not that it's a bad game (it's an astounding game even), but because of the complete bullshit swerve they give you if you want to get that final, 121st star. When you beat the game with 120 stars, you unlock the ability to play as Luigi. Pretty sweet, even if he is a lot harder to control. However, the game expects you to get 120 stars with Luigi before allowing Mario to get the 121st star. So, I'm really only halfway through the game. While not necessarily a bad thing, it's certainly a tease.
Did any of you actually beat the game with Mario and Luigi, and get that 121st star?
