Oh, you cuh-RAYzay hackers! What magic will you perform next?

Some rosy-cheeked tinkerers have decided to hack the data for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to create a suite of custom levels called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5. The hack isn't finished yet, but you can see the fruits of their labor so far in the video above. And is that a remake of Bob-Omb Battlefield from Super Mario 64 that I spy?

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is one of the greatest 3D platformers of all time, so any modification may lack the high level of polish we're accustomed to. Nonetheless, it's fun to see what the fans can come up with. With that said, if you own a retail copy of Galaxy 2, just follow the instructions on the YouTube page to soft mod your Wii so that it can play the one-level demo.

Review: Super Mario Galaxy 2

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...more

Review: Steins;Gate

Time travel is infinitely more interesting once you leave the trappings of the TARDIS or any one of those familiar (some would say hackneyed) science fiction mainstays behind. Steins;Gate, the visual novel that inspired a ...more

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more
