  1. So at one point when we’re quickly talking about Super Meat Boy, Randy reminds me how that game won EG’s platformer of the year award over “Mario and Donkey Kong.” I said “That’s acceptable.” Listening again I just realized he meant Mario Galaxy 2. It’s not acceptable anymore. There is nothing better than Galaxy 2. Hahahaha. :)

    Also, I highly suspect Symphony will crush Super CV4, but that’s cool. I just want to play Castlevania.

      1. Whoa… WHOA! Too many statements in there for me that I just can’t wrap my head around it. I mean shit, I love Galaxy, but Galaxy 2 out classes it in every single way. And while I do love VVVVVV (like seriously, I think it’s pretty amazing) the Galaxy games some of the finest this gen has offered. They’re easily the best 3D platformers ever created anyway.

        But since I do love V, I’ll let you go for now. Haha.

        1. Lol, so much about Galaxy 2 I didn’t like. Not enough was new, and what was new (powerups, new map, stupid coin challenges) actually hurt it in my eyes. After beating it, I was disappointed that I have to go back to each level to collect coins. This doesn’t happen in games I really enjoy.
