Fans are giving Super Mario Galaxy 2 splitscreen co-op


11:00 AM on 06.18.2012



Fans have been doing remarkable things with Mario games on the Wii despite the presumably long list of limitations that make the task a challenging one. That creative push from the homebrew community continues with this new hack/mod which adds splitscreen cooperative play to Super Mario Galaxy 2 via game patcher Riivolution.

As you'll undoubtedly notice from the demonstration, it's not quite there yet. For starters, both Mario and Luigi are being controlled by a single person, since no one else was around to help. Elements of the HUD and the camera also need some work, as YouTube uploader MrBean35000vr describes at length.

Even still, the project is looking promising already and I can't help but be impressed. Though there isn't a solid release window yet, don't expect it to go public for a while.

Mod tools for Total War: Rome II are now in beta

Total War: Rome II was one of the games I'm kicking myself for passing over in 2013; I didn't think I was going to be able to commit to a vast strategy game in a series that has shown me no mercy in the past. However, the new...more

You can now mod SimCity but only so far

We've said it plenty of times before but mods for PC games are great. Mod support is something I look for in games but it was no surprise that SimCity didn't allow mods. With the game being online all the time I assumed that ...more
