Do you consider yourself a Party Person? Would you rather hang out at a party, or challenge three of your friends to small, random tasks in order to gain “stars” to see who will reign as champion? Do you suffer from hideous scars on the palms of your hands from excessive virtual boat rowing? If you answered yes to that last question, you might be a victim of Mario Partying!
Mario Party 9 is coming up fast! It will be here this year on March 11th. It brings more of that fun mini-game action to us digital thrill-seekers in this second Mario Party installment for the Wii. This time, it looks like your characters have to put their differences aside and complete the map together on some kind of vehicle. But fret not! There are plenty of chances to face your foes in the mini games.
The problem I see with the Mario Party series is that they make you wait so long to get the older version! Except for the first game, no one else has been interested in Mario Party games. So dropping down the money for the full price for a new Mario Party is a bit pointless when you’re playing it alone. Mario Party 8 is still 45 bucks at GameStop. Aside from getting it on eBay, it’s still pretty expensive to get just to try out the fun mini-games.
I know people spend a lot of money each year on sports games like Madden or FIFA, just to purchase almost the same game the following year. But unfortunately, I love playing games for the story. It’s just not my desire to purchase a variation of a game that was already released. Then again, I do play the Super Mario series. Ah well. I’ll play Mario Party when I have a party to play with me.
