Australian mass media mingle with Nintendo's Wii

Nintendo Australia is in over-drive behind the scenes, preparing Wii for its big debut in Australia on December 7th, 2006. Last week, an opportunity was provided for the mass media and Australian publisher community to get their grubby hands on Wii.

According to the rarely-Nintendo focused GameArena, Nintendo Australia representatives lugged some Wii consoles to a Sydney nightspot, where games such as Wii Sports, The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy were on show, to an enthusiastic reception.

The publication points out that traditionally, female attendees don't generally get too involved when it comes to covering games, but Nintendo's Wii was a whole different ball game. "Here, not only were the ladies getting involved - they were sticking to it," wrote the website.

I’m going to give it to Super Mario Bros. 3, but if I had to pick the 3D games I’d give it to Odyssey. That game felt like a love letter to fans.

But man, Mario 3 is really the apex of the series for me… I guess you could argue a case for World, but I always go back to 3 at least once a year.

The creativity in this game is astonishing. It’s not my favorite or must fun for me, but I cannot deny that it’s one of the most creative-outside the box games I have ever played.

I'd say Sunshine is personally my favorite. Though Galaxy would definitely take second place.
