Hey guys, I hope you're enjoying the newest Mario title: "Super Mario Galaxy Wahooooo" (according to Charles Martinet on the load-up screen at least).

So how many stars do you have? Which galaxies have you most enjoyed? Favorite power-up? Be sure to mark spoilers though!

101 stars right now. Worlds 1-4 are aced, and I haven't had any more gameovers yet.

Your ship just gets more and more populated, with robots, bunnies, and other creatures. My latest was a green luma, basically foreshadowed to me something that happens when I get all 120 stars. Oh, you tease...

@-JKR- Weren't you actually almost thinking of not getting it?

Wow.

Just unlocked World 3 this morning. God, if it wasn't for this stupid JOB I have, I could play more video games.

I find that I'm always setting aside things I WANT to do, for things I HAVE to do. What a crazy world we live in.

Technically you didn't have to go to work today.

You are technically correct. The BEST kind of correct.

25 stars. I've begun encountering comets.

I've noticed something with this game, not only from this thread but from everyone I've talked to/read on the internet who's playing.

There are two types of players for it:

a) people who got like 60 stars in three days because they love it so much.
b) people who are trying to slow down to enjoy it more but find it hard because they love it so much.

bottom line: EVERYONE loves this game. Critics and players alike. That's what pure, unaltered fun will do to you. Also there is NO filler in the game at all. No cutscenes, no walking to next mission, nothing. It's all levels.

@GameDadGrant

I actually want to put off social plans to just stay home and play Galaxy. It doesn't cost any more money and I know it will be more fun.

Is that bad?

The game arrived Wednesday morning and I've worked each day since, and I have 55 stars. I'm going at my "slow" pace which is not slow. I just love it. I don't get the idea of "slowing" down cause I don't run through it. I just play and that involves getting stars. I still explore and such, but especially with the more direct nature of these levels, I just run into stuff. I don't replay levels to find more secrets if that's what slowing down means, I will eventually though. I still go back and do the prankster comets and such when they arrive. I'm nearing the end of world 4 but I know there's some I need to go back for.

@GelatinousEncore

I'm about 40 stars in, but I have the game on my mind pretty much right when I get home. I'm leaning towards the rushing group I guess!

When that chubby purple Luma asks Mario if he wants to take a quick break, does anyone here let Mario enter his sleeping animation on the stump chair next to the tea table? Hopefully I'm not the only one who does that for fun.

Doesn't he only ask that when you get a game over?

ITT: Peter admits he sucks at the game.

(jk lol)

LOL, well I ended up getting to my last life once. I've probably died at least 20 times, shamefully.

@Octorockin I have not done that actually. Maybe I should try that.

Well, I'm at 115 stars. All of the six main worlds have been fully completed. Now to do the comet challenges in World S, as well as get that one last comet coin on the very final galaxy. I haven't resorted to a walkthrough, and found all the coins so far on my own. This one will be the same.

This post will have spoilers. Not sure if we are blocking them out here, considering it is an impressions/progress thread.

My copy finally arrived. I was going to take it slow but... 20 stars finished in two sittings, broken up only because I wanted to get to the gym before it closed. I'm a bit into world 3.

Yoshi freaking owns. Anyone who says this game would be the same on Gamecube is stupid, the Yoshi mechanics work perfectly with pointer.

I love the higher frequency of 2D in the game. Moreso, I love that it is a different kind of 2D than New Super Mario Brothers Wii.

I love all of the creativity, just the vast amount of different things to do in different types of stages. Gah. THIS is the direction I thought gaming was going to go years ago, and it never really did. What a shame.

It does seem a tad bit more difficult than the first, though the true test will be how the later stages are.

Favorite Galaxies so far?

Hightail Falls Galaxy
Honeybloom Galaxy
Cloudy Court Galaxy

I guess there are a few things I'm not big on, but they're minor. One is the map, I kind of miss the exploration-based overworlds of 64 and Sunshine (and to a lesser extent the first Galaxy). One is the "hidden" stars and how you find them halfway through a normal star and can either ignore them or do them and then have to retread that stuff again to get the star. One is the new music isn't quite as interesting to me as the old remixes (old Mario music was god).

None of these are really a big deal though, considering the game freaking rocks.

@Hinph

Eh. If it's more fun than doing something... "social"... then I suppose you already know where your best interests lie. (lay...? damn you, grammar...!) *shakes fist*

i just hit 120 stars... sooo exciting!!
Posted: 05/29/10, 09:28:07
The soundtrack is amazingly better than the first, I didn't think it was possible. I am in love.
Posted: 05/29/10, 09:37:47
Just got 120!

Now I am dumbfounded.

Just collected another 30 stars (up to 48 now and just opened world 4) in around 3 and a half hours of play time. One of those times where you just say to yourself, "I'll just play 1 or 2 more" and end up doing a lot more. Those Prankster Comets are what really did it to me.
