We don't know who the other playable character is.

First off, though, we know that Luigi is a playable character in Super Mario Galaxy 2, and now we know how. The Official Nintendo Magazine in the UK has a review of SMG2, and in it they say that Luigi becomes playable once you find 20 stars. That doesn't sound too bad at all. Hold on, Luigi! We'll use Mario as a disposable character to get to you!

Get this, though: There's another playable character? ONM hints at another unnamed character for Super Mario Galaxy 2 when you reach 120 stars. Who could it be? Peach? That would be fantastic. It would be like Super Mario Bros 2 all over again!

GoNintendo's bulletpoints from the review reveal several other interesting things about the game. It seems that Bowser's stages are similar to those of Super Mario 64. Damn -- hated those. It seems that SMG2 takes place in an alternate reality where Mario and the Lumas never met. Here's some good news for me: there's supposed to be a good amount of 2D sections and several throwbacks to earlier games in the later levels.

Can't wait!

[Update: Not to crush your Peach hopes, but it seems that 120 could get you something, though it may not be another character.The guys at Official Nintendo Magazine contacted GoNintendo to clear that up a bit. 120 does get you something, though. New rumor: Nude patch?!?]

It's been a long few months, but the latest episode of Mario Warfare has finally been unleashed! The fight to take back the Mushroom Kingdom continues, and this time Mario, Peach, and Donkey Kong have some more challenging foes to contend with. Once again the choreography is top notch, especially for something that's just a web series based on the Super Mario franchise.more

What if VHS-style tip guides still existed?

There was something about the VHS days that brought out the goofiest tips and promotional videos from game makers. Especially Nintendo. The most memorable one that comes to mind is their Star Fox SNES promo that had Sony and...more

Review: Yoshi's New Island

The original Yoshi's Island is one of my favorite Mario games of all time. I don't know if it's the numerous and remarkably unique boss battles or the whimsical charm of throwing strategically bounced eggs, but it r...more
