Winning Super Mario Galaxy

Well, I have managed to do something that not many people have done. I beat Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii! I forgot to mention I was a Mario fan, didn’t I? It was tricky, requiring all of the Grand Stars and sixty Power Stars just to access the last level. Now, getting to Bowser is harder than actually beating him. The battle is much different than the other fights with Bowser. The first phase involves Bowser turning into a boulder (like the Rock Mushroom from Super Mario Galaxy 2). If you can spin next to the opening, you stun him. Do that again (he get’s faster the second try), and you go to the second phase. This time you have to whack him by spinning a bulb toward him-as he rockets at you in his shell! If you stun him, like the first phase and all other Bowser fights before this one, he twirls around the planet. You have to spin into him again to hurt him. The second time around, like the first phase, you have to spin into him while he’s stunned twice. After that, you go to phase three, the last phase. It plays out like all of the previous Bowser fights, but on a slightly different looking planet. Bowser is crazy this time, using all of his old attacks, plus the shell spin from phase two. He gives you even less time to lure him into one of the lava reactors, favoring his shock wave attacks. Which, by the way, generate four shock waves now. Plus he makes a shock wave after every jump that doesn’t end him up in a blue reactor. Once he’s hurt, he runs away with a burnt tail. Spin into the tail to stun him. Then spin into him again. Keep this up about two or three more times to win. The ending sequence is awesome. I’ll let you see it for yourself…
