Super Mario Galaxy 2 is released in North America today!

Super Mario Galaxy 2

It's here at long last, the ultra-eagerly-awaited "Super Mario Galaxy 2" game for the Nintendo Wii is out today in the USA and Canada. It will be released in Japan on May 27th, Europe on June 11th and Australasia on July 1st.

Early reviews of it give it the highest rating of any video game ever released, currently scoring 98% at the Metacritic website, so it sure is a good reason to go out and buy a Nintendo Wii now if you don't already own one!

I've been blogging for 4 years now!

On Monday it will have been 4 years since I first started blogging in this blog, my England, Thailand and Other Things blog and my WordPress blog.

The statistics show that to date I have posted a total of exactly 320 entries across the three blogs, giving an average of 80 posts per year, or approximately 1.5 per week.

Here are my personal favourite posts (with the most recent ones first):

There are free Flash online games, free wallpaper backgrounds and graphics, free game downloads and much more in amongst all that lot, so there should be something for everyone, lol! :-)

Update on Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sonic 4

Further to my posts earlier this year about the two most eagerly awaited video games of 2010, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 4, here are the latest updates about them, including release dates:

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is now complete and is due for release on the Nintendo Wii on the following dates: North America - May 23, Japan - May 27, Australasia - June 10, Europe - June 11.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (previously known as Project Needlemouse) is going to be an episodic series, and Episode 1 is due for release via the PlayStation Network, the Xbox Live Arcade and WiiWare in the summer. The actual release date is still to be confirmed because the game is still undergoing development.
