  1. both of the new mario wii games are carbon copies of previous games. however, mario galaxy 2 adds yoshi. new super mario bros wii adds multiplayer. strangely enough thats enough to make people (including me) happy. both are must buy for me. metroid looks awesome, but im waiting for more info on it before it goes in my “do want” list.

  2. Mario Galaxy 2 is a definite Purcahse for me. Metroid looks cool but I’m not a big metroid Fan… Metroid Prime Hunters was my 2nd metroid title i beat ever. I really should get into that series…
