I tried playing Mario Sunshine. Ugh. Camera control in that game is asinine, I'm not sure I'll be able to play it.

 You hate 3d platformers. Why are you playing Sunshine?

 I loved Galaxy, so thought I'd give it a try.

Tsk, tsk. I guess a short history lesson is in order. Back in the day when Miyamoto made Mario 64, they ran into memory problems. So to lengthen the game they designed the mission structure. Instead of having platforming from A to B, like the old Mario games, you had all kinds of different stuff.

You had usually a open sandbox like level and you did not complete it, but you collected stars. You earned stars by collecting 100 coins, eight red coins, racing Koopas, climbing somewhere, beating certain enemies. Since that day platformers were about exploration, missions and some platforming on the side. So the early 3D platformers were more collecthatons than pure platformers.

Galaxy was Miyamoto saying fuck that, lets do platforming. In Galaxy most, levels were pure platforming. Go from point A to B and get a star as reward. So in other words Galaxy is not a 3D platformer, like the other 2 Mario's. It 2D Mario in 3D (and 2D if you count the side scrolling levels).

You probably did not like the collecthatons, but you did like the 2D Mario's. This explains why you hate 3d platformers and love Galaxy. So if you want more stuff like Galaxy, here it what you can do?

Wait for Galaxy 2

Get NSMBWii it is closer to Galaxy that Sunshine will ever be

You want more Galaxy, well there is more. Like 60 stars more! Get to it. 

P.S. Galaxy is based on the pure platforming levels in Sunshine, these are awesome. Too bad they are surrounded by collecthatons.

Subscribers are now receiving their copies of E210, in which we recognise a decade of endeavour in videogames. For the full account of why we've made these picks, it's all in the issue, which hits UK newsstands December 22.

The years 2000 to 2009 lend themselves unusually well to breaking them into a discrete and emblematic chunk. It was the decade that finally separated the old firm of Nintendo and Sega, as one took the blows and reinvented itself beyond recognition, while the other withdrew from hardware entirely and became a thirdparty developer. It was the decade that seemed to belong to Sony, with its PS2 smashing all-comers, before hubris caused a face-first fall from grace from which the company is still in the process of recovering. It was the decade that saw Microsoft making its debut with Xbox, a name that encapsulated its gruesome aesthetics and sheer grunt, a console that lost possibly billions of dollars but gave the company a crucial foothold in the market. And it was the decade of the PC, as technologies like Flash and companies like Playfish and PopCap made developers and gamers out of anyone.

The years 2000 to 2009 were when gaming finally became ‘normal’. The stereotype of anti-social nerds is still dragged out every so often, but nowadays it tends to be with more affection. From Diner Dash to Halo to Ico to Peggle to Wii Sports to World Of WarCraft, the common theme here is this: everyone’s playing. Your grandmother having a lash at Wii bowling isn’t just funny, it’s profound. Gaming is now the hobby of countless hundreds of millions the world over, and the revolution feels good.

The following gongs credit the companies, games, people and hardware that made the decade what it was (oh, and feature some of the worst bits about it, too). Let us know what you think of our take on these ten years, and make sure you read exactly why we've made these decisions. The next decade certainly has a hell of a lot to live up to.

This thing looks so incredibly cheap. Maybe that's Sony's strategy.  Make a motion controller that costs $10 and everyone will be willing to drop down the money to pick it up.

Thus far I really like it!

My thoughts are the same. The camera isn't nearly as bad as people have been making it out to be, especially since if you control it with the D-pad during battle, you're using the B button for your attacks. If it were the A button then yeah I could see where it'd be a mother bitch.

I REALLY love the art design, the details on the character clothing is especially detailed and vivid


I've put about an hour and a half into the game and am having an absolute blast so far. It's really a shame that for all intents and purposes SE is sending this out to die and not advertising it at all.
