Remember The Game #165 - The Mario Party Franchise Remember The Game? Retro Gaming Podcast

    • Video Games

Holes burnt in your palms be damned, Mario Party is a special franchise. Has it lost its way at times over the past 20+ years? No question. But it just seems like everybody has played these games from time to time over the years, and wheel e may not love every iteration, we all get hella excited when a new one is announced. 
 
So this week, former RTG Hall of Famer Mark McCue and I are taking a look back at the franchise that is Mario Party. From the 64, to the Gamecube, to that God awful Wii U iteration, we're covering it all this week. The games really do kind of bleed together, so I thought trying to review one in particular might be a little tough. And I love this series too much to risk leaving out any of the good games (of which there's quite a few). Let's a go!
 
And before we talk about the Mushroom Kingdom and their weird ass parties, it's time for another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'! 
 
This week, we talk about what the 90's would have looked like if EA had then all their sports titles and released their own console. I lock in my pick for my most anticipated game coming in the next few years. And we talk about the TV shows we watched as kids (aside from Ninja Turtles).
 
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring some of the best multi-player experiences of all time - Mario Kart 64, WWF: No Mercy, and GoldenEye 007.
