Sometimes I play games that are really rad. Instead of taking time away from playing them to tell you all why you should go out and buy them, I just decide not to. This is one of those times. Read this part, then hit the jump and then ... actually I don't care. By the time you read this, I've already gone back to playing Super Mario Galaxy 2.
IT'S FUCKING AWESOME!
What? You want an explanation? Fine assbutt.
I give you, Throwback Galaxy! Watch this video:
Did you get that? Though it only shows off the Whomp's Fortress section of Throwback Galaxy, hopefully you grasped my point. That point being that the game includes a galaxy which is made up entirely of recreated levels from older Super Mario Bros. games.
Question: How awesome is that?
Answer: Very, very much awesome.
Also, unlike the first Galaxy, this one includes a certain friendly dinosaur.
