Super Mario Galaxy 2 Release Date is May 23

One of the absolute best games for the Nintendo Wii is Super Mario Galaxy.  I had such a good time playing through that game, that I am hoping to find the time to play through it all again.  In fact, I played through it twice the first go around, because of what happens when you get all of the stars.  When it was over, I was hoping for more.  I did not expect Nintendo to deliver, though, as there hasn’t been a proper Mario sequel since the Nintendo Entertainment System, with Super Mario Bros. 1, 2 and 3.  On the Super NES, there was the sort of sequel, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario World 2.  But That wasn’t a proper sequel game.

Is Lego Lord of the Rings possible?

Warner Brothers announced the purchase of a controlling share in Rocksteady Studios, who are the creators of the excellent Batman: Arkham Asylum video game.  It’s almost as if they allowed Rocksteady to use the Batman license as a trial run, in anticipation of a purchase later on.  Rocksteady certainly proved themselves, and I hope that they also give Superman a shot, once they’ve finished Arkham Asylum 2.

My Proposal on the Dawn Treader

Here’s the story of my proposal, told in two very distinct stories.  I hope that you enjoy it!

At long last, the story that I’ve been waiting so long to reveal to the world.  Here is a very special Narnia story, that happened last fall, as described by publicist Ernie Malik.

What is it like to fall in love in Narnia?

by Ernie Malik

A curious question you may think. We bring it up here, while cruising along on our third voyage through this wondrous world created by C.S. Lewis, because the wonder of love did happen…to six couples who worked on both the first and second film adaptations.

Please Release The Wonder Years on DVD and Blu-ray – #1

This is the first entry of another column that I’m planning on writing somewhat regularly.  It’s pretty self explanatory, so I’ll just get right to the point.

The Wonder Years

Here’s a show that has many hurdles to overcome to ever be released on DVD and Blu-ray.  It is a fantastic show that deserves a great release with interviews and features galore.  The show would be an instant hit on DVD, and could potentially help to bring back some of the DVD market that has hit a slump with the current recession.  I think that the time to restore all of the footage should be taken to make the release worth owning.

A New Ghostbusters Cartoon – Coming Soon?

I’ve been re-watching my complete collection DVD set of The Real Ghostbusters in the last few days.  It looks brilliant on my HDTV.  I’m hoping for a release of the late nineties series Extreme Ghostbusters on DVD sometime soon.  It was one cartoon that didn’t get a fair shake, potentially because of the much darker subject matter of the series.  The Real Ghostbusters rarely delved as deeply into dark topics.  When it did, the good guys weren’t the ones doing it.  Extreme Ghostbusters is fundamentally flawed in that regard, but in favor of a complete collection, I’d love to have it.  Especially because the two parter Back in the Saddle brings all of the original Ghostbusters back for an adventure.  Which leads me to the topic of this article.
