“When we created Super Mario Galaxy, we were trying to create the types of surprises and fresh experiences that you would have on a vacation. For Super Mario 3D Land, which is a portable game that people can play away from home, we added features like the ability to complete a stage in two to three minutes. The portable and console Mario games share the same core, namely, the fun of freely controlling and becoming Mario, and in that regard, there is no distinction between the two types of games.”
– Yoshiaki Koizumi, speaking to Kotaku about the newly-released Super Mario 3D Land.

In an interview with MTV, Shigeru Miyamoto’s conceded that Twilight Princess wasn’t everything it should have been.
“What I’ve been saying to our development teams recently is that Twilight Princess was not a bad game, by any means,” he said.
“But, still, it felt like there was something missing.”
He didn’t go on to explain what the “something” was. He did, however, call Mario Galaxy “conservative”.
“While, personally, I feel like Super Mario Galaxy was able to do some things that were very new and were very unique, at the same time, from another perspective, certain elements of it do feel somewhat conservative in terms of how far we branched out with design,” he added.
“And so this is something I’ve been talking to both of those teams about.”
There aren’t, of course, any other details.
Good interview, that. Have a read.

Bungie’s opus shooter staved off competition from the likes of Grand Theft Auto IV, Portal, Rock Band, Super Mario Galaxy and Wii Fit.
“We hand out this accolade to the title released in the last 12 months that does most to further the creative culture of gaming – in other words, to mark out new directions for the form,” says the piece.
Well done, Bungie.
