I am completely enamored with the planetoid/gravity-based design of Super Mario Galaxy. Just take a look at this GDC 2007 trailer and see if you feel the same way. Isn't that wild? And it looks fantastic, too, with a style that's unique to the series but still immediately recognizable. Between this and the bizarre 2D-to-3D reality warping of Super Paper Mario, it seems like the midget plumber is having one of his most creative, inventive years in ages.
It sure beats getting another bajillion Mario sports titles and party games, that's for sure. (Although we'll undoubtedly still be getting those, too!)
Have a nice weekend, everybody!
