Mario Party Adance wasn’t exactly the Mario Party game people were looking for when it came to a Mario Party handheld experience. However, when the DS was doing some really nice things with Mario games, attempting the true Mario Party formula with this new hardware was a really great idea becasue Mario Party DS is the definitive Mario Party handheld experience. It’s a little rough around the edges and this game does introduce the tradition of capable Mario Party games not featuring online play, but I think this game is really good and in fact better than some of the console games.

SlimKirby, when will you do Mario Party DS? This was the question I got nonstop for many, many years. Heck, I wish I knew the answer myself, but this was a long road of uncertainy for me. With me giving my old capture card away as a gift to someone who really wanted a DS and no idea of when I would get a new one, this project was in jeopardy. However, once I received my capture card via donations, I knew this had to be one of the first projects I did, so I made sure Mario Party DS was on the agenda. Now I am proudly happy to present Mario Party DS Board Playthroughs!

Everyone sure loves a game of Mario Party, but what happens when you remove the mini-games and replace them with stocks, properties, investments, and everything economics, and add a bunch of Dragon Quest characters? My friends, it’s time to take you on an adventure; an adventure called Fortune Street!

When I first heard of Fortune Street, I wondered if it would be a nice continuation of the huge Mario Party following that was featured on my channel. However, when I started playing the game, I was very quickly surprised to find something much different, and much more challenging. I was thrown off from ever wanting to do a project of the game, but here I was…one year later…ready to pick up the Wiimote and try it anyway. Not only was it long endeavor, needing a large break in between both halves of the project, but it definitely had its entertaining moments as well. If you are ready to see the action that Fortune Street has to show, grab a dice block, sit down, and enjoy yourself!

The Star Carnival is in town, and MC Ballyhoo is the host for the festivities. Mario Party is all the rage, and Bowser just might be up to something as well. It’s another stroll down Mario Party lane and this game’s gimmick features the use of Nintendo’s Wii-Motion functionality!

While not much time had passed between my last Mario Party playthrough and this one, I figured it was time to get back into the Mario Party groove to start the year off right! It was quite interesting, making the move from Gamecube partying to Wii partying, but the spirit of Mario Party remained with us as we went along the journey!
