Potentially the greatest novel ever. Why didn't Orwell write anything like this? I bet he wanted to, the dirty old man. http://bit.ly/9o6DA6

Hands-on with three very different titlesYou've already heard what we thought of Metroid: Other M, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sin and Punishment 2, and we got to play Monster Hunter 3 a few weeks ago, but there's still plenty to tell about the other titles available to play throughout the summit.
Blasting, slashing, stunning – trailer inside!It took forever (well, nearly) for Treasure's seminal N64 game Sin and Punishment to see a Western release, but thankfully the sequel isn't due to take anywhere near as long to find its way to your Wii disc tray, with a European release date of 7th May. When Nintendo offered us the chance to play it with the Wii Zapper on a huge projection screen with booming, bassy surround sound it would have been rude to say no.
Hit me baby, one more timeAs stunning as Retro Studios' Metroid Prime Trilogy undoubtedly is, we still fondly remember Samus Aran's formative years, and particularly the seminal Super Metroid. It seems we're not the only ones fond of this piece of the bounty hunter's history however, as Team Ninja and Tecmo's take on Nintendo's sci-fi franchise kicks off straight after the SNES classic ends.
Truly spacialSuper Mario Galaxy 2 had by far the biggest queues of the day, with a cordoned area showcasing the plumber's latest adventure. Our crafty writers, however, took advantage of everyone else's hunger by striking when most other journalists were stopping for lunch, managing to get a good half an hour of hands-on time. With such high hopes surrounding the sequel to arguably one of Mario's greatest adventures, it's a pleasure to be able to tell you it absolutely lives up to expectations.
All the big news from the big dayEarlier today, two of Nintendo Life's UK editorial team attended Nintendo's European Media Summit in London's swanky O2 Arena, which was filled with transparent plastic chairs and surrounded with projection screens showing upcoming titles.
Had a great day at the Summit today. Lots to write about so stay tuned :)
I wish I had Jack Donaghy's tailor. And his hair.
