Mario Galaxy With Bonus!

Submitted by on November 7, 2007 – 8:07 am4 Comments

Useful and attractive!With so many fantastic games like Ratchet & Clank, Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Guitar Hero 3 on shelves right now, it’s almost easy to forget about Super Mario Galaxy going on sale in a few days. For me, it’s finally a reason to dust off that $250 hole in my gaming library and get some freakin’ use out of it.

Anticipating a Mario game, even under these less than spectacular circumstances, is a monumental event for me. I’m far from a fan of the Red Man’s games but the last Wii game I rented, Victorious Boxers, won the award for the fastest rental in history. I wanted to get rid of that horror so quickly that I considered FedEX’ing it back to Gamefly overnight!

So I’m excited about Mario Galaxy, even if it doesn’t come with the feather duster mentioned above. I desperately need to get some use out of the console because every additional day that passes without use, my Wife’s possible case against a future console purchase grows that much stronger.

She’s an incredibly reasonable woman; putting up with all of my seemingly frivolous gaming purchases over the years. Maybe it’s because she’s a gamer as well, casually firing up her DS to play Animal Crossing or more-recently, Jewel Quest. It might also be that love thing, but my money’s on the gamer in her.

I own every currently valid console and while my decrepit 360 keeps me from firing that up every day, it definitely gets more use than the Wii. I’ve flirted with selling my Wii for $200 twice so far, pulling out at the last minute both times. How can I go home and pack it up, risking the chance of hearing those dreaded words when I consider buying another console in the future,

“…….remember the Wii?” and she’d be right.

I have to hang tough and get some use out of the damn thing. My gaming future depends on it!

    That graphic was hilarious. At first look, I thought it was some crazy DS stylus and then I saw it was a duster and just about busted a gut.

    I recognize the “dust off your wii” jokes are funny but I really don’t understand them. I’ve been playing guitar hero and battalion wars non-stop, both in the main game mode and for free online. How fantastic is that? Before that I was consumed by Prime 3 and Strikers charged. The online for strikers is still a fantastic experience. The holiday lineup on Wii has more games I’ll buy than the other consoles as well. This machine is such a huge hit with my family, its actually prompted an increased level of gaming support from my wife. Now, SHE is looking at the game ads. She wants smarty pants and gets on the everybody votes channel almost daily, even submitting her own questions. She’ll even suggest we pop into gamestop when we are at the local mall! I never would have guessed that such a simple machine could be so engaging to such a wide group of people. Its no wonder its selling like mad. Galaxy is just icing on the cake.

  • Joe –

    UC, antagonizing site visitors is the best way to drum up pageviews. The Wii is dusty, the PS3 is pricy, and the 360 is busted. Get all three of those memes into one story and it’s a pageview explosion. Doesn’t matter how many four-star games have shipped for Console X, it’s a failure and don’t you want to refresh and comment on it?

    Oh, I don’t know about that, Joe. James is that way about anything with the Nintendo name on it, even in person. :>
