New footage of one of the game's early bosses and more...
Mario in leathers, now, THAT might be interesting..
I know the Mario character is very popular.. I just wish I could join in the excitement.
Man, Nintendo sure has nailed that Last Gen look down finally! Galaxy looks like the best Gamecube game ever made! My take on this one... It looks disorientating, annoying, obnoxious and it looks tedious. No thanks.
nobody can say this is same old last gen stuff because nobody has ever played a game like this to me this is more next gen than same old ratchet and clank which looks like it has identical gameplay to it predecessors.
this may just sell me a wii
Funny how the mechanics and whole concept was ripped right out of R&C's games... Deny all you want, Insomniac had the 1st game with planet to planet spherical traversal. You can't argue this fact. Nintendo can say they had the concept back in the 90's or the 80's... Fact remains, Insomniac utilized it 1st. Simple and clean. So right their the gimmick seems used like a prostitute at an Aids clinic.
that all the environments can manipulated with the wii remote from simple stuff like shaking the flowers to get coins out to no dought more complex physics based puzzels where ratchet is more a cartoon shooter linear level design unlike the more sandbox level design of a mario game
what's with all the comparisons to Ratchet & Clank? It strikes me as rather odd to suggest that the two have anything in common bar the art style (tenuous link at best) and the space theme (pfft, who's to say Insomniac didn't steal from Bungie, then?), let alone that one is better than the other....
Do yourself a favor...
Read it. Look at the pics and understand. You two clearly ahve no concept of what R&C games are all about. It's painfully obvious. It wasn't an on the rails game, snorks. It's an open ended go where you wanna go game. Read the blog.
of a company not innovating and sticking to something that they know were as every mario game takes chances and does something different I could have used lots of other examples like madden or gran turismo or whole number of games that have only improved in graphic to keep to fan base.
Kudos to little big planet team for trying something new
gamesblow, these are tenuous correlations at best. In other games' favour, I could easily assert that Novalis is a planet; the Final Fantasy series has been making a point of using named planets since its conception – and that Ratchet & Clank is therefore stealing. Or that Blackwater City is often seen at night: a concept nicked from the cities of Treno AND Midgar from the aforementioned series. Or that the idea of having an array of weaponry at your disposal is stolen from Tomb Raider.
OR I could argue that since Mario 64 pretty much wrote the platforming rulebook, Ratchet & Clank has been stealing since its development began.
Regarding your blog – I'd reconsider that background if I were you, unless you want to remove your charming slogan "GAMESBLOW The one stop you need to take for all your 100% unbiased videogame insight!"first.
Oh, and smash hit? I've never heard of you....
I wonder if NINTENDO was HIGH when they made this game LOL! either way I LOVE IT it looks next-gen to me I got to play this game "BAKED".
lol I actually had a similar thought when I first saw the gameplay of SMG. The whole jumping and flying to and on celestial bodies with different themes, shapes, and sizes seemed so far-fetched and odd that it struck me as almost a drug-induced idea. And yet it is the perfectly-natural progression of a Mario-themed platform game. The Mario universe is fantastical in and of itself, and the gameplay mechanics of SMG only seem to compliment and improve upon it.
I would've loved to play this game "baked" if it had come out years ago but this game seems to be really fun regardless of sobriety level.
" Funny how the mechanics and whole concept was ripped right out of R&C's games... "
super mario world2:yoshis island on the Snes had a level with a spherical element way before ratched and clank, you stupid fanboy C*nt, this just shows you would believe everything thats put on the net without thinking for yourself.
That concept was done before, that whole thing about Galaxy is a ripoff, is nothing but a JOKE.
if you dont like the game just STFU about it, your wortless piece of "your opinion" wont change a damn bit, this game will sell...and people are going to like it.
Keep that to yourself what is wrong with you just say i don't like it at least to me dang don't have to B!TCH about it
Not only did Yoshi's Island have a spherical world years before R&C ever came along, but Sonic Adventure 2 had a spherical world on it also. R&C did NOT invent that idea at all.
Do some actual research before you post, bloody twelve year old.
Gamesblow speaks the facts and you people flame him instead of bringing up valid points. You people fall under the 2% that disagree with what he and other intelligent Sony consumers say.
Insomniac utilized it first and it isnt like they had former Nintendo employees. Ratchet & Clank was groundbreaking and first in it's kind.
Bubbles for Gamesblow!
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
I mentioned two games that came before R&C that utilized the sperical world gameplay, one of them created by Nintendo, and you say we didn't give any valid points?
The Ratchet & Clank games franchise is one of my favorite franchises, up there with Mario and Metroid, and even I know they didn't come up with the idea first. All it takes is a little research, that's all I'm saying.
" You people fall under the 2% that disagree with what he and other intelligent Sony consumers say. "
and then he ends with play beyond....
your firmware needs an update, maybe you need something like a " thinking" feature.
Don't even bother explaining yourself to that guy he is a blind sheep. He can't accept that a game as brilliant as Mario wont be on his be all and end all playstation. I dont like to take sides with consoles but that guy really makes me hate the PS3 sometimes.
Man... as much as I want to be a fan of this game since I love the Mario series and most definitely Mario 64... this game looks like it sucks. These small tiny planets is just not a good idea. If the planets were bigger and each one unique it would be a great idea!!!!! These small planets are way too small and just remind me of more minigames. I loved Mario 64 because you would get immersed in each level and have to complete so many smaller quests to get all the starts so I would know all of the tricks in the level and more. This game is a major ***yawn***. Here's to hoping that all levels aren't like this. And I hate the black galaxy background. I want blue skies and clouds.
" These small tiny planets is just not a good idea. If the planets were bigger and each one unique it would be a great idea!!!!!"
There are worlds with blue skies and clouds
there are bigger worlds, RESEARCH!
Wow talk about using the whole level! Looking like some levels will probably be pretty tough.
You know I know most 360 guys jump in PS3 and post hate and most PS3 guys jump in 360 and post hate but Wii owners aren't really actively seeking out to spam hate on the other threads. Why not just attack each other and let the Wii be happy. It has nothing to prove or needs your approval for the true gamer already is enjoying the product.
