Nintendo are hosting an exclusive Super Mario Galaxy 2 launch in Sydney on Thursday evening. And you're invited.
Well, actually, only two of you are invited.
If you're over 18 years of age, available on the evening of Thursday, June 3, from 6pm to 10pm, and can make it into the Sydney CBD, then I'd like to hear from you.
All you have to do is email me between now and midnight tonight and describe in less than 100 words which Mario game is your favourite, and why. Easy.
It's a busy week for events, actually. Earlier today I met up with Konami and played some co-op missions from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. I also took home with me a copy of the final game, so I'll be writing about that later this week.
And finally, before I head off for the day, I should announce a few outstanding competition winners:
* No More Heroes 2 - I couldn't decide who should ge the fifth and final prize, so yesterday I asked for your thoughts. After taking on board all your comments, and sleeping on the decision overnight, I've decided to award the final prize to Mick D - he of the Manny Calavera scythe-from-behind scenario. Well done, Mick!
* Blur - The winners of last Friday's final Blur draw are Andrew R and his "Periscope Mole" and Caligari and his/her "Dimension Gate", both clever yet practical ideas I can see adding a cool element of unpredictability to any arcade racing game. Well done, guys!
