Super Mario Galaxy prologue

Super Mario Galaxy prologue

Nintendo updated the official page of Super Mario Galaxy with lots of short videos. Here is the first one, showing what seems to be the very beginning of the game.
Update: Added a montage video of all the actions (hopefully).
Update2: And of course I had missed the most interesting one.

It is looking really good, although I saw previous shots and videos of the airships, I'm glad they're playing a prominent role.

If they had brought back the koopa kids and raccoon Mario it could have been better than 3...

I noticed that they're using that silver lining lighting technique around Mario. SC4 and FF13 also seem to be doing this. It looks really nice.

Jade Empire on Xbox and Half Life 2 Episode 1 on PC also used it. Less costly than the more complex lighting effects you see in some games like Halo 3 and other recent titles, but more costly than most of the stuff last gen.

Blim, there's some parts of that video you put up that repeat a few times.

I'd love to see the new fire flowers, the inclusion of them puts this game ahead of Mario64 in potential for me.

I'm loving what I'm seeing from some of those animations, like Mario flipping the Goomba.

Mario Galaxy looks out of this world ;)

"silver lining lighting technique" LOL! Did you just make that up on the spot? Wow. I don't know how many people "just notice" their light system and rename it. I think this is about the 20th name, but the most interesting!

Still waiting for the SMG to arrive.

i think they just show different controls on the same level.

    Nietzsche @docLEXfisti: I also enjoyed Justice League. The CGI is poor at times like the villain but the character chemistry is very well done. Very funny too! (13 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti We have Overwatch, watch my son play it sometimes... it just doesn't appeal to me. Rainbow 6 might be worth a look... (15 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti Got to play a bit today: you appreciate how shooting feels in Halo 5 even more if you try out SWBF2, mediocre at best - this is made by D.I.C.E.? (15 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti It was fluent and over quickly (like GotG2), which is a good sign... (not like Civil War i.E., where I wanted to turn off after 40 mins). Different ppl, different tastes I guess ;) (16 Hours ago)
