Hudson died, then Nintendo decided an already casual series needed to be even more casual and simple. Can't let grandma get lost by having more than one way to go, have to keep everyone together to keep things more even, can't give people a lot of things to collect because that's confusing, etc.
>>323250407 >main mode is terrible >amiibo mode is the only true Mario Party mode, but the mods are way too small and very linear >have to touch your amiibo to the Gamepad every time you want to roll the dice >some of the achievements are super luck-based or take way too much time to grind Hell, this is coming from somebody who likes amiibo and collects them.
>>323250407 In typical modern Nintendo fashion, they decided to make the game they wanted to make and not what fans want. Comparing 9's and IT's sales with 8's and DS shows people want traditional Mario Party.
Bowser mode is fucking bullshit. He's given so many unfair advantages over you it's borderline impossible to win or outrun him or get out unscathed from his mini games against a compitant player or even a drooling retard player.
>>323252720 That was one of the few things I was waiting for along with amiibos for the other Mario characters. I figured Tennis would at least push for it again since that would make at least give it two/three games it could be compatible with, but bad games create more bad decisions, I guess.
>>323252040 That's the point though. My memories of Mario Part 1, 2 and 3 are getting pissed at the game and the satisfaction of winning despite getting fucked over.
Fucking Chance Time. Fucking Game Guy Fucking Boo Fucking getting my shit stolen despite everyone making a pact not to steal shit this game Fucking getting a magic lamp and not making enough money to use it for 3 turns. That fucking one level in Mario Party 3 where you just had to buy Reverse Shrooms and you could farm Boo for the entire game
>>323252628 I fucking hated 4 especially because of the single-player. It's my birthday, and I have to EARN my presents? And I might win the board game, but then lose to the boss and TOUGH LUCK NO PRESENT?
>>323250407 It isn't just me? I thought I was getting old or some shit.
I played this with 4 other people and we had fun the first time but that's all. We tried Bowser mode first and assumed the all people in a single cart mechanic was exclusive to it, but it wasn't.
During regular Mario Party it felt like a massive disappointment. I never played Amiibo mode because fuck that shit. We were talking about selling it and getting 9 instead, but this thread is telling me its shit as well.
>>323255915 I haven't seen much of 10, but I played a few games of 9. I couldn't play more because alone it put me to sleep, and no one wanted to play such an awful game together. What I didn't like about the game was that it was becoming less and less competitive. I think you can turn them off, but a lot of the mini games were completely luck based, like most of the gameplay. There weren't any that had you thrown in a pit, fighting the other players for your life.
They forgot that the henious bullshit that could happen in the game is what made it fun. There's more of an inventiveness to be competitive, and that's what made it fun to play, and to watch random luck give someone a break or to break them in half. Just the idea of the car means you're already taking a lot of freedom away from the player.
Some of the minigames were ok, most of them were EVERYBODY WINS GOOD JOB, but there isn't even a mini-game every turn and most, if not all the boards were segmented linear boards (when you get to a checkpoint you get mini-stars, and when 3 people reach it the game teleports the last person to it so they don't fall behind.)
Worst of all the toad host constantly tells you what is happening repeatedly: >THERE'S GONNA BE A MINIGAME UP NEXT OH BOY >WOW MARIO'S AHEAD KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK >UH OH LOOK AT THAT SPACE COMING UP
>>323259934 >literally just did a vote to decide fan characters for Smash >published a whole lot of cool niche shit this generation despite WiiU selling like garbo >made a serious Pokemon fighting game filled with veteran fan favorites
>>323258606 I like the concept of boss fight minigames but the way 9 and 10 executes it is kind of stupid with the captain player getting bonus ministars and the person who gets the last hit getting a bunch of points, which is almost always random. Both of those things just make some of the boss minigames feel pointless.
Game didn't release on PS4/Xbone/PC. Splatoon could be MASSIVELY bigger despite its great success on the fail-U.
Why Nintendo still makes consoles is beyond me. We get wii was one of your only successful consoles but you can make guaranteed dough by ditching console and being software only (for consoles, handheld still decent enough to make hardware for)
>>323259742 >tfw CN closing down so free games >decided not to "cheat" so stuck with only a couple games >wanted Mario Golf >cousin redeemed it for Island Tour >"But I played it with friends and it's fun!" I fucking love Mario Party but that game is worse than 9
>>323262314 Except that's literally impossible and unofficial polls spanned across the mainstream, surface level of the internet where the majority of people participate all put Bayonetta in a far from top-10 region and corin in a non-existent region because he really doesn't even exist yet.
If you think the poll wasn't rigged by Nintendo, well, you're delusional and refuse to except facts, and if you continue to reply and attempt to convince me that they were in fact legitimate without providing any arguments one way or the other, then you won't get another (You) from me.
Too much evidence points away from Bayo/Corin winning the vote. It's statistically impossible.
>>323262790 >Unofficial polls that never agreed on jack shit and don't reflect the entirety of the world say they're wrong!
That's the thing, in order to find out about the polling in the first place, you'd have to regularly browse (and subscribe) to nintendo on youtube, browse a gaming subreddit, browse a gaming messageboard, and browsing a gaming imageboard.
In order to find out about x.com, you'll have to have browsed y.com. If you participate in an unofficial polling of y.com, it'll best reflect the polling results, because in order to vote on x.com, you'll have to browse in y.com, and because you browse y.com, you'll likely vote in a poll on y.com.
The "rest of the world" have no idea what the smash ballot is or where to even vote.
In addition to that, the newest smash bros has over 10mil sales. Bayo 2 has over 600k sales and Bayo 1 far less. Assuming every single person who's played Bayo 2 votes in the poll, that's only 600k votes. If we compare it to /literally every other nintendo game ever/, they have the major advantage.
>>323263235 >Bayo 2 has over 600k sales and Bayo 1 far less
Do you really expect me to believe that Bayo 1, the game on 2 platforms that performed far better than the Wii U, sold worse than Bayo 2?
Also the rest of your logic is generally flawed. There's no reason someone would HAVE to browse the fucking Smash subreddit or /v/ to learn the poll exists, and there's no guarantee everyone on those sites would vote in their pointless polls.
>>323263738 This reflects absolutely nothing. The guy who made this checked out a couple hundred tweets and then put it together based on how those tweets "felt", as in, he gave more points to characters that people called a sure thing and less to ones people were unsure about. It's complete malarkey and I thought you Rool fags realized that months ago.
>>323263365 Am i the only one that hates the extended roster? Id prefer the melee or even original roster. I wanna see mario get clibbed with a hammer by yoshi. Not fucking noonecares characters who end up getting played more thqn mario
>>323264012 I don't think you realize the number of people who might keep up with gaming news but never touch the forums of those places. Even if they do why do you assume all of them would give a shit about their polls when they mean nothing?
>>323264802 >If i bought the game to wreck shit as link, and link sucks compared to animeguyxx89DLC You know only cloud falls into that area right? And even then he has the recovery of horse going to the glue factory and delays out the ass.
He's also going to get nerfed hard and you're going to have nothing to go on beyond >wahh there's too much choice and variety
>>323263738 Damn, we dodged a bullet with that entire left half. Aside from Paper Mario those characters are boring as shit, even if you dislike Bayo she had a ton to work with and they crammed in as much as they could. Nostalgia-shitters be damned for wanting Dixie, a Diddy clone, or K. Rool who hasn't been relevant in years.
>>323265467 Do you even know what you're arguing about anymore? After all press x for flash only applies to the smash ball anything else like Cloud's limit breaks or Little Mac's punch have to be earned and it's easy to miss with them.
>>323266135 In fact you still have to earn it with the smash ball because there are other players going for it as well and final smashes can be easily dodged. On top of that you can lose it if you take too many hits.
in truth it's not much more random than previous mario party games, but it's been stripped of the facade of player autonomy. you no longer feel like anything you do in the game matters, other than the minigames. they may as well replace the whole board with cards getting dealt to each player.
