FOREWORD
___________________________________________________________________________ ________

There's no way to satisfactorily cover everything that has been presented so far for this game, and in truth I don't want to. For many, this game is going to be one discovery after another and as much as I can follow this rule I will. Yes, Mario isn't about story - it's about experiences. So let's try to spoiler tag every detail we can that isn't immediately obvious to those who like Mario.

So, this won't be my typically exhausting summary of everything related to the title... it'll have some good links for those who want it, and presumably fifty nine pages of everyone masturbating to the wonderment of Mario Galaxy.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Originally Posted by Wikipedia

Most of the game is set in outer space along a vast chain of miniature planetoids and other space matter. Mario is capable of jumping or launching from planet to planet in order to gather items and defeat enemies.[citation needed] Gravity plays a significant role in the game, as each planet has a gravitational force that prevents Mario from drifting off into space, which allows the player to effortlessly circumnavigate rounded objects. The varying degrees of gravity also have an effect on Mario's ability to jump, and is used to pull Mario towards certain planetoids while in mid-flight. Like previous 3D Mario games, the main objective is to collect Stars, which are awarded by completing tasks or defeating enemies. The game will have six themed areas, 40 galaxies, and 120 stars to collect. [6]

As in every 3D Mario game, Mario’s health consists of a power meter, which causes Mario to lose a life if it reaches zero. When the game starts, Mario begins with a power meter made of three sections. Mario has a second and separate health meter that designates his air supply when swimming underwater; if it is empty Mario will drown. The bottomless pits featured in previous Mario games which cause Mario to lose a life when fallen in have been replaced by black holes, which are stationed beneath the surfaces of certain planets and peppered throughout outside space.

Is there more to say? Absolutely! So much more, but you guys can fill in the blanks. The lucky Japanese get this game in exactly two weeks now, so the hype must blow into FINAL GEAR. Go Go Go.

It's so strange to be in a position where I curse the Japanese for getting something early. We've been spoilt lately.

I haven't wanted a game more than I've wanted Galaxy for years.

Those screens look great. I was hyped during E3 2006, but after that my interest dropped. But damn, it looks like it's going to be amazing. Now that Smash is out of the way, I can concentrate on this baby.

EDIT:Holy shit, November 12? I thought it was out in December!

I know I'm a freak of nature, but I'm just not that hyped for this game.

I know I'll eventually buy it, and I know I'll absolutely love it and not be able to put it down for days when I get it, much like I did with both 64 and Sunshine (YEAH I WENT THERE), but I'm not that stoked by its release. What is wrong with me, GAF?

With all due respect, this is a rather weak official thread and fails to hype-up the non-believers. Wikipedia? wtf. That said, this is the game that brings many of us back to better times.

I am pretty sure that this game is going to be one of those single player games I'll play regularly years from now. Even if the gameplay stinks, which it won't, I'd play it just to immerse myself in the soundtrack.

oh no. I actually had made a thread for this a few weeks back in notepad that was, jesus, something like i don't know had like 80 images or something and an exhaustive breakdown of power ups and i was gonna post that, but i looked at it all and was just like 'everyone knows this stuff, it's just gonna look bloated on the first page and so let's go with a simple approach.'

You know, I'm actually glad you went for this approach. The less media posted, the more you can discover yourself. The game really doesn't need tons of screens because we all know how awesome it looks, like you said. Also I don't like my OP's to be superlong tbh. Facts rundown, some media, review links,... All I need.

but I do suspect that Alkaline had that long wordpad doc too... and will be crying when he sees this :p
