Super Mario Galaxy 2

On Wednesday 24th February 2010, Nintendo held their annual Summit in San Francisco. Among many ground breaking pieces of technology that they informed spectators of was the new Super Mario Galaxy game which is the second instalment of the Super Mario Galaxy game series which is to be released on Thursday 27th May 2010. The gameplay is very similar to all the other Mario games, simples!

The new feature is that the majestic wand that is the Nintendo Wii remote plays the lead role in this game like in New Super Mario Bros. where you need it to control the propeller suits. Some new bosses in the game wear armour so they are super tricky to defeat using. The remote enables you to shoot and dizzy enemies. Mario has a brand new weapon – a drill! A handy man I think you’ll agree! But this is not the normal drill the average Joe bestows, it can be used to burrow through the magical lands Mario travels too, to avoid enemies etc.

Among many new features is bonus rooms where you are more likely to earn lives and other cool powers.

Yoshi makes a return to help his pal, Mario. The dino will need to be hatched from an egg like all the other Mario games – but this time he can turn red and become a carnivorous dinosaur that he has never been conveyed as before and gobble up enemies and if he eats a Bullet Bill he can spit it back out and send it in the opposite direction. I think we’ll see a darker side to Yoshi, but he still eats those cartoony plants for power – so not too dark!

The new levels are fabulous you could be in a lava pit to a snowy mountain top… the sound effects are cool too, when plummeting through space you’ll sound like you’re in an army jet. Cool! Can’t wait? Neither can I!

For some reason I’ve really been dying to play some Super Mario Bros. and I just so happened to stumble upon this read in the process.

The Hooking Line: The Kills

We all feel prone at given moments in our everyday lifestyle, especially with music. The only problem is, we are genetically coded to avoid bait. To avoid traps because of the way it looks, feels, smells or tastes. But this is the Hooking Line. Every day you will be reeled into something new that is remotely different from what you are used to generically hearing. It will be handpicked from a completely randomized genre. New or old, it will not matter. All that matters is if you are brave enough to take the bite.

Today’s addition of the Hooking Line features The Kills, a two-piece alternative rock band; one hailing from America and the other the UK. Together they make a slaughtering outfit and are definitely something different to hear. “Alphabet Pony” is off of their 2008 sophomore album Midnight Boom.

LRG got together with illroots, Hollywood East, Free Integrated and Soul Rebel to present the Leaders of The New Cool showcase in New York City. Curren$y, Stalley, Skotch, Mikkey Halstead, Esso and more rocked short sets with DJ Absolut on the turntables and Angela Yee hosting the evenings festivities.

Western Hospitality is one of those songs that swings with elaboration and capsizes you with a feverish upbeat tempo and tropical twists. The group, Club 8 is currently working on their sophomore album, The People’s Record which is due out in May.
