    1. Have you not seen the 3ds selling well forever? Nintendo normally does well. It’s the piece of shit wii u that is stinking up the world.

      I hate my wii u with a passion. I also feel bad for anyone who was so desperate for a game that they bought MP10.

      1. I agree. The 3DS is a huge success – it’s unfortunate they weren’t able to carry over that success to the Wii U.

    “Nintendo fans should be happy” i’m not happy. Mario Party 10 is trash. I’m suprised it’s selling that many units.

    1. Personally, I don’t have a problem with that.

      I mean yes, I’m not fond of the new Mario Party games, but that being said, I don’t mind others finding them good.

      1. I don’t think he meant Mario Party in general is trash, but MP10 in particular. And I do agree with him, it’s absolutely terrible; everything that made previous MP games great seems to be gone + they once again failed to include an online multiplayer mode, which is simply unacceptable in this day and age, especially for a game like Mario Party, as it’s fundamentally built to be played with others.
        The fact that it’s selling so well is concerning, and just rewards Nintendo for putting out an awful game, when in reality people should strive to show them that they’re doing things wrong.
        But yea, can’t be helped, I suppose.

        1. I know what he meant. He doesn’t like the new style that 9 and 10 used. I’m not fond of it either.

          However, I’m not saying that they’re bad games, just that the new style doesn’t appeal to me as much. That still, if many people are enjoying this kind of Mario Party, well who am I to tell them otherwise.

        2. Also, just because you think it’s awful doesn’t mean others should think it’s awful. Just because you think it’s wrong doesn’t mean others have to feel the same.

          If they legitimately like the game, then more power to them. Personally, I don’t think online multiplayer would work in Mario Party anyway.

          1. I never said everyone should feel obligated to agree with me. All of the above was my personal opinion, of course, that’s why I started the paragraph with “I do agree with him”, which is an expression to indicate one’s opinion, right?
            And why do you think online multiplayer wouldn’t work with MP? There are so many online board games out there, and even though Mario Party isn’t necessarily your generic board game, it would work in a similar way, which I personally can’t see any problems in. I’d definitely want to hear your arguments on the matter though, of course.
            Also, to answer to your reply above, I misread your original comment and didn’t see you said “the *new* MP games”, so to me it seemed like you were talking about the franchise as a whole, my bad.

            1. In my opinion, it’s easy for something like say Smash Bros or Mario Kart 8 to pull off something like that because matches in those games happen in short bursts.

              However, doing a Mario Party board will take an hour at minimum. What happens if someone has a faulty internet or just leaves? Does the whole thing just get canceled right in the middle? To me, it sounds like a disaster waiting to happen because it can’t be done quickly like a Smash Bros match.

              1. It wouldn’t be hard to replace the human player that quits with a computer player. There really is no excuse for leaving out online multiplayer. It’s the ONLY reason I did not buy the game. Not everybody has four friends to invite over to play a friggin MP game.

                1. Absolutely agreed, I mentioned the exact same points in my comment below. I really don’t understand, it is a game entirely meant to be played with others, so what makes them think it’s a good idea to leave online multiplayer out? I just can not comprehend, it makes no sense to me.

              2. Hm, I don’t think those problems would be too difficult to solve. For example, there could be default settings for online multiplayer matches against random people like in SSB, such as, I don’t know, the games being limited to 10 or 15 rounds. Those don’t take all that long, about 45 minutes maybe, but I think anyone who decides to start up a game in MP is already prepared for that. There could also be a friends-only mode where you can just set up a game with individual settings, just like when playing local multiplayer.
                As for the connectivity issues, the game could just go on with 3 people only, or better, just replace the player who left with a subsitute com or something. Give people who deliberately leave games too often some kind of penalty, so people won’t try ruining other players’ games. Let everyone have a certain amount of time to take their turn, and just have the game skip them if they don’t react in time, so nobody can clog up the game by randomly going idle or anything of the sorts.
                There are so many ways of handling it, really. And as I’ve said, there are many board games featuring online multiplayer, I just don’t see why a major company like Nintendo can’t make it happen too.
                If it actually gave us the option to play with other people online, I would actually consider getting the game, but without it, it won’t even remotely cross my mind because I simply don’t have enough time nor controllers to invite over friends every single time I feel like playing Mario Party, and I’m sure there are many other people out there who feel the same.

    2. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

      >>>Indeed but look it this way, even our trash sold better than Call of Duty combined on all platforms during March, now that’s something>>>

  2. For some reason I think that Bowser has that expression because he’s saying: “Wow, this piece of plastic of a console really sucks. Heh.” But I really do wish they can bring back “classic” mario party.

  3. Mario Party 9, Mario Party 10, who really cares.. That game is trash with no online..

    Honestly, as long as I get Xenoblade this year, I will be happy. I have not played a new game on my Wii U since Christmas, but hey. Xenoblade will more than make up for Nintendo’s infamous gameing droughts.

  4. A lot of gay teenagers on this site they don’t no jack shit about video games half these idiots dont no what Mario 64 was until years later theses new generation of gamers are a bunch crybaby brats bashing Mario shut the fuck up what’s so great about GTA how many times can you shoot someone and run them over with a car that shit is repetitive and getting old at least Mario games are different with new ways to play

  5. Oh look, the chart is filled with non-Nintendo games! Where are all those cock suckin fanboys to say that the US has shit taste in games?

    You fucking losers…

    1. Why would people say that? The only possible Nintendo game that could be up there is Mario Party 10….

      Also, Nintendo isn’t the only company that makes great games. Bloodborne is up there and it is a fantastic game!

      1. why would they? Who knows – A few days ago there were a bunch of drones saying just that for the UK chart that was posted here, even though it basically matches this one.

        There are a lot of fanboy morons on here that reside in the US, i suppose. You wouldn’t hear that kind of stupid shit coming from elsewhere.

  6. All but one game in this top 10 chart are PS4 titles (but the only exclusive though is Bloodborne).

    Mario Party 10’s physical + digital sales so far worldwide should be over 400,000 units.

  7. hello company thats currently making mario party games can u make your mario party games like mario party 1-7 please
