Super Mario Galaxy 2 Review

With sequels, it’s easy to get a feel of what to expect – more of what its predecessor offered, while improving on aspects that didn’t pan out the way as the developers intended. This is usually, if not always, the case. With Super Mario Galaxy 2, you won’t know what hit you. It’s a freight train of surprise, a paroxysm of ingenuity, an endless stream of balls-out craziness. There probably won’t be a better game this year. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is really frickin’ amazing.

It starts ever so predictably. Peach is kidnapped, Bowser’s going to break the universe and Mario’s going to stop all this nonsense with starship that reflects the exact size and dimensions of his ego. The lack of effort gone into the narrative is laughable and it seems like Nintendo was aware of how they tried even less with weaving any kind of yarn, because a lot of the dialogue in the text reflects a kind of humor that just screams “We don’t care. Shut your face and play our damn game instead.”

Scooby-Doo finds a new mystery

Apparently they’re still making Scooby Doo games and “Scooby Doo! And The Spooky Swamp” is the next one. Developed by Torus Games, a small independent developer in Australia, Scooby Doo! And The Spooky Swamp will be released alongside the upcoming animated Scooby-Doo film (Direct to DVD?), Scooby Doo! Camp Scare, and will “expand the Scooby-Doo franchise with more of the mystery and exploration that video game fans have come to adore,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.” From my reading of the press release, the game seems to be a puzzle/adventure title.

No More Heroes 2 Lingerie & European Launch

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle launches in Europe and Australia May 28th. That is this Friday!

Desperate Struggle’s UK Publisher Rising Star Games has teamed up with Bedtime Flirt to release some No More Heroes themed lingerie based off the characters Naomi, Sylvia and Shinobu. The lingerie is already on sale to coincide with No More Heroes 2’s launch.

The outfits look vaguely faithful to the characters, so unless you look a great deal like one of the characters or have the accessories to match it, then this will look like any other piece of lingerie on you. It may provide for a quick and easy solution for cosplayers. However, with some time and effort it is not had to imagine someone managing to put together better recreations of these characters.

Wii Fit Personal Trainers at Trump Hotel

Wii Fit may or may not actually be that great as an actual fitness routine. Some claim to have achieved health benefits, at least in part, due to Nintendo’s fitness software.  Regardless of how effective it really is; Wii Fit is probably better for you than just sitting on the couch.

The Trump Hotel in Las Vegas offers their guests hour long gaming sessions with personal trainers… at a high price, stranger. The “Wii Sports Package” entails a personal trainer coming to your suite, giving you and your family private instruction on how to get the most out of our gaming experience with not only Wii Sports, but Wii Fit as well all for a reasonable $90.00.
