So I got the game at about 2:30 on Monday, and I've been busy with both real life and the adventures of a portly plumber since that point.  So far, the game is good, although I felt surprisingly underwhelmed when I began playing today.  Things have been picking up as the game has progressed, though.

Real life returns soon, then a small batch of the Galaxy.  Let's see how long it takes to reach the "ending" this time.

Whenever you get your hands on the game, enjoy yourself.

...imagine Super Mario Bros. 3 was the last Mario title released.  If the SMB3 team were to have launched straight into a 3D sequel to SMB3, that would explain where Super Mario Galaxy came from.

Yeah, Super Mario Galaxy  is the sequel to Super Mario Bros. 3.

More to come later.  Buy this game now, even if you don't have a Wii.

Whoo hoo... Mario saved the Princess.

Now to aim for 120 stars.

How is Galaxy going for the rest of you?

Great.  I've got about thirty stars.  The toads and Luigi are getting on my nerves though.  All they do is get lost and need you to help them.  You already have to put up with Peach begging for help.  Oh well... at least she sends you 1-Up mushrooms.
Let's burn some stuff and call it science.

I've bought the game.  But what makes this game the sequel to SMB3.  The doom ships?  I would hardly call it a sequel.

It is very much in the style of SMB3 (and Super Mario World, really.) I always thought SM64 was pretty Marioey, but SMG really blows it out of the water.
That was a joke.

Great game, nice ending. I beat it with only the 60/61 stars needed and went straight back to SSBM... now, when I go back to SMG with a strong craving for crazy gravity, I'll have 59 things to do.

For some reason this is understandable, yet incredibly sad.
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?

I didn't give up on it or anything--I just want to save the rest for later.
Yeah, this was said some days ago.

How one man can play Smash for 6? years straight is beyond me.
That was a joke.

Whoo hoo... 6 days later, and I now have all 120 standard stars in Super Mario Galaxy.  Now I probably need to write up a review, but for the moment all I want to say is that this game is consistently fun all the way from star #1 to star #120.

Annoying at times, but in a good way.

Don't rush yourselves, folks... there's plenty to do in this game, even after you get all 120 stars. Heh heh heh.

Great game, nice ending.
The ending was extremely confusing.

The ending and all the stories made me think of Elebits.  They were cool in a way and help to explain the galaxy aspect of the game, but didn't fit with the style of SMG.
