No Mario Galaxy 2 on 3DS because Mario would be a 'speck'

Nintendo has revealed that it tested the possibility of releasing Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the 3DS, but had to nix any potential plans due to it being far too difficult to enjoy. According to the company, Galaxy 2's graphics made Mario look ...

Damn, Mario! Super Mario Galaxy 2's critical acclaim

For me, when Nintendo released Super Mario 64, it showed me that 3D platforming was the future. But, because of the camera and other control issues that had yet to be polished, I wasn't very excited for the future of 3D platf...   read

Super Mario Galaxy 2 bug found?

I've encountered what I think is a bug in Super Mario Galaxy 2. I found it by...dying. A lot. And I don't think this is a level-specific thing either. It just happened to me in world 6, in a stage where you use Rock Mario (awesome, BTW) to...

Mario Galaxy 2 launch party has swag and an old man

Sounds like the Nintendo World Store's Super Mario Galaxy 2 launch party is going to rock. A man with cloud-white hair will be there, doing the voice of Mario and confusing people, because even though he sounds like Mario, he doesn't look l...

Mario Galaxy 2 ad shows us how to make a good Mario movie

Iwata on why 2D Mario is better than 3D for Japan

Information went around last week regarding Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's thoughts on how Japan seems to dig the 2D Mario more than the 3D version. It sounds like more of that worry that Japanese gamers fear 3D control, which I'm not to...

Super Mario Galaxy 2's other playable character? [update]

Yay! Luigi playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2

I guess I'm happy because I identify with Luigi more than Mario. He's...not fat, and I think he has a better fashion sense. He doesn't always get the spotlight but he's integral to the Bros. successes. Kind of stupid? Sometimes, but he's g...
