Sundays with Sagat: Mario 64 vs. Mario Galaxy


2:00 PM on 05.30.2010



[Sundays with Sagat is a video series where a man named Sagat talks to you about videogames. This is serious business.]

This week's episode started off really good. Sagat went on a tear about how each Mario game has a counterpart in the Street Fighter world (Donkey Kong = Street Fighter 1, Mario 2 = Final Fight, Mario 3 = Street Fighter 2, Mario World = Street Fighter Alpha, Mario 64 = Street Fighter EX, Mario Galaxy = Street Fighter 4, Mario Galaxy 2 = Super Street Fighter 4, etc), and it was awesome. I think I even saw his scar glow at one point. That's how fired up he was. Then he went on to explain how the surrealism found in Mario Galaxy is analogous to the perspective-bending work of M.C, Escher, while the child-like fantasy of Mario 64 is more akin to something you'd find in an episode of Barney and Friends.

I shot Mountain Dew out of my nose I was laughing so hard at that last crack, until I noticed that I had forgotten to press record on the camera. After that, Sagat was understandably pissed. Burning with frustration, he pulled a Tiger Genocide on a nearby farm animal, blowing it to pieces (too bad I didn't get that on camera!) After that, his super meter was completely drained, leaving him feeling pretty nerfed, and not really up for talking. That's the chain-combo of events that resulted in the video you see above. Frankly, it's not Sagat's best work, but it still has it's moments.

Hope you enjoy it!

[Note: This video was in no way influenced by Chad Concelmo or his excellent feature on Mario Galaxy 2 . At the time of this recording, neither Chad nor Sagat had even played Mario Galaxy 2, which is why Sagat stays focused on the first Mario Galaxy and doesn't mention the sequel. If you want to see where Sagat did get some of his ideas for this video, check out this typo-packed cblog from community old-timer Tron Knotts.]
