Mario Party had been a clear success on consoles, but after awhile, the developers at Hudsonsoft wanted to take the series and move it on to the Game Boy Advance, which had been a huge financial success at the time. The results were quite…different, to say the least. Anyway, Shroom City has been attacked by Bowser and he has taken all of the world’s minigames and “gaddgets.” It’s up to Mario and his three closest friends to help solve the troubles of Shroom City.

With all of the console Mario Parties being completed at this point, I knew that at some time I would need to take a trip to the handheld games, and after almost a year of no Mario Party action on the channel, I decided to give Mario Party Advance a try. Although it’s very different from the traditional Mario Party formula, even moreso than Mario Party 9, it does have its own charm and I wanted to share it with you guys.

During the Gamecube era, Mario Party got into the habit of releasing one game per calendar year, and Mario Party 7 was no different. In this rendition, Mario and his friends have gone on vacation, but when Bowser doesn’t get invited, Mario and his friends better think twice about who they exlcude, because Bowser is now going on a spree of rage, ruining whatever destination they travel to.

This Mario Party project had the unfortunate timing of taking place during one of my “computer decides to crash” phases, and as a result, was put on hold for a period of time. One of the most unfortunate aspects of this crash was the fact that during the course of this playthrough, my appreciation for this game had actually increased, when before, it was probably my least favorite of the Mario Party series.

The entity of the Sun, Brighton, and the moon spirit Twila, have been playing too much Kirby Super Star, and much in the same fashion as the sun and the moon in that game, the two siblings start to argue and put the world in a state of a day-night hybrid. Mario and his friends are once again in the middle of this dispute, and decide to play Mario Party, but this time with a day and night twist!

It was that time of the year where I knew Mario Party was going to be in demand again, and being the Mario Party nerd that I am, I had no reason not to endulge. With the success of Mario Party 5, I knew I had some big shoes to fill, but at the end of the day, all you need to do is party hard, and then the rest will follow! As usual, I covered all the Party Mode boards and all of the extra features and bonus games.

This project was another viewer fan-favorite, featuring some exciting matches, hilarious moments, and some very memorable results. Let’s just say that this game will truly teach you the importance of every single coin!

Mario and his friends are once again met with another opportunity to party like the part animals that they are! This was the first Mario Party installment available for the Nintendo Gamecube and it featured new boards, new mini-games, new items, lots of new bonus features, and perhaps the best thing, just a new Mario Party game to play!

Although this is the 4th installment of the Mario Party series, it is actually the 2nd earliest (in terms of date) available playlist of my Mario Party playthrough series. This is because I had to remove my original playthroughs of Mario Party 1 and Mario Party 2 due to the issues of copyright I had with those videos, and as a result, I redid them at a later date, after this project.

This may be one of my earlier projects, but this is where I felt things were starting to come together in terms of how I wanted the quality of my videos to be. I had some issues with the audio quality, but I don’t think they hindered the project and still made it a very enjoyable party!
