Yes, we're still knee-deep in Mario's latest outing, despite a strong desire to pick up the latest release chock full of block-stacking.

Everytime Miyamoto talks, we listen. The man has some serious clout. And, for good reason, considering that just about every single thing we love about Nintendo can be directly attributed to his efforts at the company.

Bad news, friends of the Lumas. After an extra week of reviews, Super Mario Galaxy has slipped to the number two spot on GameRankings, returning a certain ocarina-wielding Hylian to his long-held number one spot. To commemorate the super-duper astroplumber's brief stint as king of all videog...

Despite certain reviews that highlight the game's flaws, Super Mario Galaxy is currently the highest rated game of all time on Game Rankings.

We expect that most of you are at least several hours deep into Super Mario Galaxy, smiling with each new discovery and throwback detail.

Just look at that. Isn't it glorious? What you're seeing above, folks, is a Wii-compatible SNES pad. Let's say that again, shall we? A Wii-compatible SNES pad.

Here at Wii Fanboy, we like to think we offer ... balanced, objective coverage of Nintendo's world-beating home console.

Yes, we made the trek to Toys "R" Us yesterday to purchase Super Mario Galaxy and take advantage of the "Free $25 Gift Card" offer, only to come out empty-handed. We haven't been this depressed since James died in Good Times. We weren't the only ones who found ourselves sans Super Mario Galaxy, as m...
