Brawl WiFi CONFIRMED!

September 18, 2007

So, Brawl online was confirmed today! Rejoice and be glad! However, those expecting some grand XBox Live-like service will be disappointed. Sakurai was open and honest in saying that it will be laggy across very far distances (basically, other countries). You can play the two traditional NWC ways: With Friends or With Anyone.

Mario Party 8 Sales Soar…

July 2, 2007

Mario Party 8 has sold extremely well since its release, pushing out over 550,000 copies… I’m not very pleased with this, myself.

From the N64 to the Gamecube and now to the Wii, this series continues to sell well with minimal upgrades. The first title was fresh and original, and […]

Preview: Mario Party 8

June 5, 2007

Just some quick comments on Mario Party 8 to prelude my upcoming review: Use of Wiimote is hit or miss–either way, most minigames are unoriginal. Different boards have different means of collecting stars, bringing some freshness to the mix. Overall, the game is odd in its pacing, sometimes moving nice and fast, while screeching to […]
