Gametactics E3 Coverage continues with an awesome 2 player co-op demo of Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii.
Wow mario co-op that is so awesome!
yeah well, it isn't really co-op though...you don't exactly have a character running around on screen...maybe the next game! :)
Hmm, i cant read the article i was just going off the head line. Whats the deal?
Isn't the very definition of "co-op" "cooperation", as in, one person helping out another? Thus how is this not "really" co-op? o_O
I agree, it is to bad you can not have seperate characters; looks great though, it should be a blast
i want to try it out
Im so happy i could cry
MC_KOOL_K ha ha, at least the Player 2 won't be sitting there doing nothing.
VirusE, it's a video of two player co-op not an article.
Super Mario 64 is still the best 3d platformer(by miles i might add) and so i excitedly await Galaxy with fingers crossed - damn i hope this proves a worthy sequel then maybe i'll have a reason to stop playing the N64 version.
shigi said that he has put allot of time in this project, this might be the new worthy successor.
No matter what game yur playing both will help each other out!
I wonder if the 2nd player will get bored and start messing with Mario...lol Wii Remote fight! :)
Its cool and I know if I were that second player I would enjoy helping out my friend, but the first thing that came to mind was Jet Force Gemini. I remember that being the big thing about JFG. My friends and I got so excited, only to be let down because all you could do was play this sentry bot that hovered over the main player. The only movement you had was, the reticule, to aim at enemies, which became limited at times because of player one's navigating. It was fun, but it could've been alot better. Either way I still look forward to this game, it looks awesome!
yeah but this game has a lot of exploration and from experience sometimes its really frustrating when 1 person can't keep up and the camera pans out or 1 person dies cause hes too far from players 1.. SONIC did co-op pretty well.. they let player 2 be tales and when P1 went too fast and far tales would just fly back on the screen though it wasn't as fun.
I agree with you, but that only applies to single screen co-op games such as Contra, Life Force, etc. Perfect Dark executed nice co-op with split screens. You could go anywhere you wanted without having to wait or stay near your partner. One player could go on a killing spree while the other could concentrate on the objectives. Very cool, very fun.
jigaman: yeah, it would had been cool if it was 2 players on the same screen instead of just a cursor...but at least we don't have to worry about the 2P getting stuck or falling off because the 1P jumped off the cliff :)
I used to hate that! At least we wont be dealing with that. Hehe. Kudos to that.
PD co-up is split screen because it was FP-perspective. Mario is a platform game and splitting up the screen in 2 would ruin the whole feeling, in my opinion that is. and its pretty a new way of helping out. well whatever the CO-up is Co-up rocks =D
This is perfect. My girlfriend is only recently getting into gaming again, mainly because of the Wii and the portability of the DS–and Super Mario 64 DS, her favorite. Now, we can take turns playing Galaxy and one of us won't get bored or frustrated because of how the other person is playing.
@sidar: I agree with you regarding split screen co-op for MG. I wasnt suggesting they do it that way, but the implementation seems a bit tacked on. Either way I would rather play as the yellow star cursor then just sit there & watch someone play. I'm not complaining just giving my opinion. As I've said before this game looks stunning and I will have it on preorder! A must own!
