    Sunshine was considered mediocre. Galaxy is said to be the best game on the wii.

    To point out the difference in both games do this:

    First show Melee to a NON-GAMER than ask him to play it.
    Next show Sunshine and ask him to play it.


    Chances are he can control mario in sunshine better than a character in brawl. Even bigger chance is that he KNOWS whats going on in sunshine while in a fight in melee hes like: WTF Just happened to my character and where the feck is my character?

    I like to point out again that Im aking to play BOTH games ( Brawl and galaxy ) but Brawl is a lot more difficult for the non-gamers ( casual gamers ) They know galaxy ( hey its mario again! )
    Does anyone have any numbers on how many pre-orders brawl has in Japan? Like I said earlier: Galaxy already passed the 700000 mark
    Thats an opinion, and for that matter, one that I have not heard from Nintendo.
    We weren't discussing anything about non-gamers, we were discussing about casual gamers. There is a world of difference
    While this, for the most part, is correct, I'd like to point something out. Many people think they are 'the best' at SSB. Why? No online. Every single noob who thinks they are the best in their group of friends thinks they are better than anyone. And BTW, when a noob plays a noob in SSB, it isn't that hard for them to (think they) understand. Just spam smash attacks and specials and whoever wins thinks they are the best.
    Again, this is only because you think they'll be playing someone good at SSBB. If Mario was two player than they'd be discorouged if they got owned by someone, too. However, if two noobs are playing than it isn't hard to grasp because, hey, they aren't doing well either.
    Simply put: Japan is a fanboy nation. This is expected, seeing as though Mario is the face of Nintendo.

    Thanks for that good reaction ( +1 rep if I can still hand out rep )

    I understand what youre saying. But you misunderstood me ( slightly )

    In melee ( or brawl ) its not really a problem who you're fighting. Its the chaos that happends in every game. Characters jumping past each other ( characters in these series are smaller than in most other series ) so its hard to keep track. Add some items and explosions in the mix and its even harder to keep track of.

    I know a bunch of people that own ps2's ( so they are casual gamers ) and when I trie and play smash brosh with them they got no clue whats going on. Heck even if you're a seasoned player you can miss whats happening on the screen every now and than

    And I know we werent discussing non-gamers but my point was to prove that Galaxy is just an easier game to "get" or get in to. It doesnt matter wether you're a casual or non-gamer. There isnt much difference in there. It would be if you compared non-gamer to hard-core or even mediocre gamer.
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    With Wii outselling XB and Brawl being as good as it looks, I dont hope for it to outsell Halo, I expect it to. Galaxy is not even in the equation, imo.
    I know what you're saying here but I've got a feeling that Nintendo will put a spin on Galaxy that makes people think they have to buy it. Make it almost synonymous with the Wii in general. Just showing Mario jumping around doing flips, throw in a Wah-Whooo! and I can see it happening.

    Melee actually sold 6 million worldwide and Sunshine sold 5.5. (In a less important note super mario 64 sold 11 million and smash bros. sold 4.9) And people thought Sunshine was dreadful! I mean, i think Galaxy will get better reviews then Brawl (Said that already) and I just think everyone will get this title..atleast eventually...but the same goes for Brawl...I don't know.. my heart still goes with Galaxy for sales. It's just got that something that screams sales. (Not saying that brawl doesn't..Galaxy just has more of it)

    Mario is Nintendo's icon. If this game is as good as they hype pertrays, it'll sell more than brawl. It just will. In a way it's unexplainable, but it's a feeling.

    But, I guess knowing my luck, I'll be way off and Brawl will outsell Galaxy 2:1. I just don't see it happening.
    Might be interesting to see other opinions..


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    ^So basically:

    Mario64>SSB64=Mario64 sells better
    Sunshine<SSBM=Melee sells better

    This round should be more interesting.

    Galaxy=SSBB?

    =???

    haha that could happen as well. That both game will almost sell as good as another. That would be awesome

    yeah, I agree with you on that. If both are good, who cares about sales.

    Man, I'd break something to see some Mario Galaxy advertising. 9_9 like, a pencil...

    Most advertising I see is the box arts on the "coming soon!" display in GameSpot. W/e that place is called. Used to be EB games. (liked that name better....)

    I'm sure both games will sell a ton, there's no point in arguing over it... I hope the controls are so new that I'll feel like a newb again when I start playing. I miss that feeling! T_T

    Currently Playing: Lunar Knights

    Videogames like...run through my blood. Leik srsly.

    Next on the list: FE:Path of Radiance (SHAH I'm lame and still haven't gotten it. XD)

    Honestly, I don't think this game needs anymore advertising. It has enough hype as it is.

    You're probably right. XD I just love seeing dem graphix on my TV screen. (part of the can't wait to play thing!)

    If they do, it'll be love. If they don't... I will love that game anyway. <3
