    Hmm, well this Christmas I get the choice of one Wii game for myself. I've narrowed it to 2 games I REALLY want, but dunno which I should ultimately pick :\
    The one I DON'T get will probably be gotten in mid February, my birthday..probably.

    It's really between Guitar Hero 3 and Super Mario Galaxy. I never played a GH before, but lots of people say it's great and you should try it out. They also say it never gets old, and plus ONLINE PLAY :0

    But Mario Galaxy is owning the reviews right now..but I guess once it's done, it's done. How long is the game, btw? And is it easy/hard..[easier that SM64?]. Anyway, I know I can't miss out on either of them..but which one would you say to get first..or is better in a way?
    Help D:

    What you need to ask??

    MARIO GALAXY!

    From what I've played, its perfect and from what I hear, the Wii version of GH3 is just a rush job.

    It's what you like better - Take control of Mario and wander through a 3D Space or do you like pretending to rock?

    Guitar Hero II has excellent replay value, so if getting video games are rare for you, I'd choose this.
    Galaxy you can continue to play through and through, it'd get old faster though.

    I can't really decide which game I'd rather purchase, GHIII or Mario Galaxy - and if money is a problem, you'd have to go with Mario Galaxy, as Guitar Hero III is bundled at 100 dollars!

    Hard choice, really [​IMG]
    And yea, I kinda only get a video game every 2-3 months..my parents don't let me buy too much of them :\

    And don't you mean GHIII has excellent replay value?
    Oh, and money isn't an option here..I have a $100 Christmas limit ^__^

    I'd get the other game for my bday though, remember..

    Oh, did anyone hear of this Toys 'R Us deal?

    [​IMG]

    It's on Kotaku's front page..it's a GREAT DEAL! I just dunno if you could actually use the gift card to get Galaxy for $25? Or maybe somehow keep the gift card, and then return the game + rebuy. There's no other game that's really out there :\

    Or maybe I could use it for GH3!
    Or Zack & Wiki for $15! :0
    So many possibilities, lol.

    Is the replay value really THAT great?
    And is it THAT awesome? Like, I REALLY enjoyed it from the 3 minutes I had, but will it get old?

    It's like, there's no point to the game..but somehow it's very addicting.

    EDIT: Whoa, just found out SMG is about 8 hours long, and 17 hours to get 100%. No way in heck that I'm the kinda guy to get 100%, so I guess it's about 9 hours for me..not as long as I expected, but pretty good time ^__^

    Erm...isn't...isn't that when Smash Brothers Brawl comes out?

    If at all possible, you should try out both. There should be demo stations of Galaxy at most places.

    Yea, funny thing is that Brawl comes out RIGHT on my bday, February 10th. But I already paid for it full with my own money, sadly..so it's like me buying myself a gift xD
    I still get a game from my parents..soooo.

    And yea, I guess I should. It won't ruin the experience for me, I guess..and it'll help me decide better ^__^
    Smart thinking =P

    Since you only have to wait two month to get a different game, get Super Mario Galaxy and play it.
    Take your time with it and maybe stretch it out over a month or so.

    Then by that time, you'll only have to wait about 2 weeks to get GHIII (or you could do vice versa - get GHIII, play for a month, then get Mario).

    Or you could always get a modchip, if you've got an older model Wii.

    Galaxy, obviously. Have you heard of the glitches in GH3? Like mono sound in Wii version and missing coop play?

    You have the biggest sig ever.


    And get Guitar Hero. I've played a bit of Super Mario Galaxy, and it kinda seems a little boring and I get dizzy playing it lol

    I've heard of mono sound, but what's missing co-op play?
