It’s looming closer and closer! Mario Marathon 3 is just over 4 weeks away! FOUR WEEKS! I can’t beleive it myself.
Recently the Mario Marathon Team held a Super Mario Galaxy 2 Premiere Event which had over 150 viewers and some good donations made to the Childs Play cause. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it, however it was recorded on Ustream.TV for all to see afterward. I went ahead and watched it and was very amazed at the improvements over last years setup. Although I did have one or two little issues with the stream. For one, Couch Dog and Crying Baby. Couch Dog’s barks were just too much for the microphone. As was the Baby crying. (I forgot his name, sorry guys!) It clipped my speakers numerous times to the point where it had to go right down to the “Emergency Mute” button to avoid any damage to my equipment. I doubt there may be any way to fix that but I will do some tests on the weekend in the Theatre Room to ensure there is no damage to my equipment if it were to happen. I’ve yet to do a test on the theatre room display to see the quality and clarity of the stream, so I will do that tonight to test.
I was really happy when Orange Shirt Guy did a shoutout for me because I was unable to attend. He did a pretty good job at pronouncing my surname aswell. Not quite right, but a good try. Brian actually made a comment that I was aparently a chatroom admin aswell! That shocked me! I remember asking once but I never thought I was actually supposed to be one. But if you want me there, I’m more than happy to!
Unfortunately due to the fact that I happen to live in the Country that gets everything Video Game, Movie and Technology related last. The entire premiere event was a big spoiler for me. Unfortunately Super Mario Galaxy 2 is not released in Australia till July 1st. Which is extremely annoying. But what can ya do? It was still fun to start having that familiar atmosphere of a couple of guys, on the famous couch, playing Mario games.
Remember, only FOUR weeks to go! Let’s get our game on!
