After seeing what Retro stuck into Metroid Prime 3 for WiiConnect, it's probably a good thing Nintendo didn't include any WiFi features in Galaxy. That's probably where the extra 1 in the score came from.
Eh eh, well, not really. We gave the game 11 out of 10 just to testify the greatness of Super Mario Galaxy and to make some ONM Italy haters more and more angry with the whole staff. :D

On ONM Italy we have mentioned a pair of imperfections on the visual side (i.e. the sand level, that I really haven't enjoyed that much... in graphical terms) and the lack of Nintendo Wi Fi Connection support of any kind. But still gave the game a 11 out of 10. :lol
YOU NEED TO POST A SCAN OF THIS :lol

Collector's Item in the making right there.

Uhm, being the editor of the magazine, I don't think I deserve any "honor" in spreading/spamming some pages of the mag online. :)

Geeze, I'm sorry guys. I only do 4chan image dumps in extreme situations, such as an salvageable awful thread, or when everyone else is doing it, or I'm just too lazy to do anything else.


I have been too occupied lately to create ORIGINAL CONTENTS. As you can see, the Second Fortress of Teams is filled with unsavory brigands who would desecrate even the most Holy of Holies:



I must hunt down these fiends, and cleanse them with my purging flames.

So, I've got a dilemma that I need a recommendation on:

I've got a proposed meeting for lunch on 11/13, which would make it impossible for me to pick up Galaxy during my lunch. Should I just pick up the game after work? That might just seem obvious. That would be the smart and responsible thing to do. But, my desire to have the game sit next to me all day wrapped up and shiny in its plastic while I work from 1-5 is unquestionable there. I've been waiting for this game since Mario 64.

I was 16 when that came out. I'm 27 now. I've waited 11 years for this. This meeting was just proposed yesterday. Now you tell me what should take precident. :lol

I'm crazy, I know. Especially since I won't have a chance to play it until I get home.

You have four reviews on a 1 to 10 scale. For whatever reason, they like to add the scores up. It's not one review on a forty point scale.

I'm not talking about Famitsu. I'm talking about Game Informer's 10 point scale with .25 increments, which adds up to a total of 40 possible scores.

I really don't know, usually I never play games taking care of the lenght in hours of gameplay. And talkin' about Super Mario Galaxy, I've been sucked into it in such a manner that time really flew. I think that the first 60 stars are rather "easy" to get, so the average gamer can finish the game without experiencing frustration and so on. But the other half of the game.. well, that's a whole different story.

Yeah, and all the Zelda gameboy games and Super Mario Bros Deluxe. They went 10 happy with GB games at one point.

In all honesty I think that Galaxy probably won't warrant an honest to goodness 10 from IGN's scoring system.

But still, c'mon fuckers! Give it a 10. It's Mario and he is in space and you know you want to, you know you want to do it.

True, they did go 10-happy, but I know that Metal Gear definitely deserved the 10 it got.

During the GBC era, IGN's Game Boy section only gave games integer scores, so they were far more liberal with 10's than other IGN sites. If they had been reviewed after IGN GB started using the same scoring system, I'm sure that they would all have gotten slightly lower scores.
