Shortly after we wrapped up episode 15 of the MehCast, I fired up the Wii and got into a new set of Super Mario Galaxy adventures. I mentioned the Prankster Comets in my third progress update, and I have some more details now due to experiencing two more last night. I gained another star from the Terrace Observatory via the Good Egg Galaxy using a Speedy Comet, as well as completing the Fountain Observatory’s special galaxy, the Sling Pod Galaxy. Within the Fountain Observatory itself, aside from completing the Space Junk Galaxy, the Hurry-Scurry Galaxy (a one-star galaxy), and the Battlerock Galaxy, I gained extra stars from the Daredevil Comet and the Cosmic Comet. I had very few details about these two comets in my third update, having had no experience, but now I can verify some of my assumptions. With the Daredevil Comet, you go through the boss fight with only 1 piece of health. Sustain a single hit, and it’s time to retry. After a couple of tries, I finally got through that one. The Cosmic Comet was much easier, consisting of a special race (this one was on foot) through the level to a special star. First one to the star wins. Very straightforward, very simple (so far). I have not yet experienced the Fast Foe Comet, but am looking forward to it. I now have every star from the first two observatories except for the Bowser star from the Fountain Observatory. I just finished gathering all of the other observatory stars, so Bowser is up next! I’ll let everyone know how it went in progress update 5.
