EDIT: Isn't Bee Mario just the cutest little character model you've ever seen?!

Also, that apple/worm level looks incredible.

So does that mean we are getting another Daisy or Pauline type character?

Mario doesn't really need another princess to worry about.  I think it would be more interesting if Rosetta turned out to be the villain.

Magical is the only way to describe how this game looks

However, the cursor could be game breaking for me. It just hovers there blocking a tiny bit of awesomeness. I may have to skip the game if it turns out to be too annoying.

Every game has us play as someone, but some have us go further in terms of identification and emotional involvement than others. Mario doesn't talk a lot, but he does talk. Link on the other hand is always silent, because Link is an extension of us as players more than Mario is. Another example: the cinema scenes in MGS help us realize that we are supposed to be a sort of spectator to Snake's actions, even when we're actively controlling him. Snake is an extension of us only insofar as we get to guide him on a path through a highly linear story. Now, Nintendo never asks us to sympathize with Link, but Konami does expect us to sympathize with Snake. (Oddly, we are expected to BE Link but not Snake - notice we can't change Snake's name.) Somewhere in the middle we are expected to sympathize to some degree with Mario while actively controlling him at all times. We get to be Mario, but Mario is an extension of ourselves more than Snake is (since half of Snake's actions are uncontrollable and he makes decisions without our help). (Further examples are first-person gameplay vs. third peson - Half-Life tells a story about a person, but expects us to identify fully with him. King Kong is similar.)

Anyways, that's a lot of talk simply to say that the control in Galaxy throws me for a loop - who am I controlling? Who am I supposed to be? By giving us control of a cursor that is independent of Mario, we surely are playing as someone other than Mario while at the same time controlling Mario. Perhaps this "third" person is us, the player, or perhaps it is a character in the game. I don't know. I suppose it's supposed to be one of Mario's magical powers, but it feels too disembodied for that. Until Nintendo gets this straight, I think people will be confused by the Direct Pointing functionality and find it tacked on without being justified.

In terms of game design, this game is . It's excitingly linear without being narrow - each planet must be explored to a certain degree, but you can only go from one planet to the next. I expect we'll see some very large planets, but so far we've only seen moderately small ones. Also, there are hints (in one of our E3 interviews) that this is only a portion of the game, and the premise is more far reaching. If so, that's great! I can't wait to see what else is happening. Personally, a fully realized 3-d Mushroom Kingdom would be awesome, but that's more of an RPG style thing and not very Mario.

Whoever posted this is a genius.

P.S. Who had an argument about one of my old posts and didn't invite me?

How do you know the pointer isn't going to be characterized?

Even a giant water gun was characterized last time.  You're complaining on something you haven't received knowledge about yet.  Isn't that a very ignorant thing to do?

Why not?  You reposted it.  Do you disagree with said post?  Do you agree with said post?  When you post said post, did you agree with it then?

What I honestly think: two player Mario with one person using the cursor seems awesome. One player having to click a bunch of crap while running around (which is how it was when I played it at E3 2006) is just dumb. It didn't ruin the game, but it didn't make sense. I mostly agree with what I wrote above, even though it is totally pretentious sounding. I don't think it's wrong to think about games, either. But I reposted my dissertation only as a joke, since there was an argument about it last week and I missed the whole thing, dammit.

I think moving Mario and the cursor at the same time will be difficult.  Moving in two things in separate directions and performing actions at the same time,  it is going to be awesome.
