To further those sessions between gaming, TMK's Blog will be providing you with Weekend Movie. These posts will highlight a video the blogger felt worthy of sharing. If you come across a video, or videos, feel free to submit it!

Alright, you can say this weekend's movie is a complete wash, but I beg to differ. See, I waited patiently until today to post all the new, awesome, fanatastic links to all the videos that were taken of Super Mario Galaxy and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games from the Game Convention 2007. Unlike other sites that make needless posts after posts and force you to compile the video inks yourself, I've linked to each video, divided by game, in one simple place. Not only that, but I also went ahead and rounded up any articles and pictures about the games! Am I not just the greatest?

I imagine this may eat up a good part of your weekend if you watch them all. Enjoy this weekend's movie, TMK's GC 2007 Round-Up.

<Kojinka> When I saw this thread back on top, I was afraid this was gonna be another pointless bump by a new member, but when I saw Super-Jesse's username, my fears were laid to rest.

For some reason the CVG web pages are appearing completely scrambled on my computer.

If you want to hear classic (yet little, if ever, reused) Mario music, check out CVG's Cookie Factory video.  (Also, the platforming is just cool).

Holy cow!

1) That is my favorite Mario tune to play on piano and it is totally weird yet pimp to hear it outside of SMB3. I guess if Kondo doesn't really compose anymore... reuse his good non-reused stuff!

2) That game looks ultrauber.

3) It doesn't look "too easy" either.

He doesn't compose music? I thought he worked on Sunshine (and for some reason I also thought he was working with Brawl)...

Kondo writes very little these days. He is more of a sound-overseer at EAD. He wrote one or two themes for Twilight Princess, and maybe the main theme for Super Mario Sunshine, but most of it is written by underlings.
That was a joke.

Hear hear!

I reacted a little too loudly to hearing the music, and mom yelled up the stairs, asking me if I was ok. :D

It is so great to hear that song again outside of SMB3.

Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

SSBM remixed a different song from SMB3 than that one.

Hm... that Prehistoric Piranha battle looked a little too easy.

Whoops. You're right! Somehow, my mind just conected SMB3 with SSBM there for a second, and all thought was lost as I made that post. I guess you could say it was temporary insanity.

Looking at that video of the Cookie Factory Galaxy again, the picture is seen being played with a stretched image (it's made most obvious during the "Welcome to the Galaxy"- you can see the life meter suddenly move and stretch), even though most other game play videos show it is widescreen compatible. That kind of thing irritates me. It's like in all the Wii ads and spots with people playing on widescreen televisions with stretched images. Why is it that no one in those videos takes advantage of the widescreen-compatibility of games on a widescreen television?

Because they are like me and are slightly technologically challenged. They don't know how to turn it on (the widescreen thing, not the TV).

It's in the Wii's manual.
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

Rule number one of the slightly technologically challenged lifestyle, do not read the manual.
