I love how the joy con has no speaker on it yet makes a mario theme tune every time it’s your turn. I believe the hd rumble vibrations make the tune

Holy cow, that baseball game in Toad's Rec Room is hard! I played a couple games with a friend and we both finished with a final score of zero.

Those fastballs almost seem too fast for the human eye to register it in time, but surely that can't be right?

You think that's bad, me and a friend did a 3 inning game yesterday. He managed to get the timing down with the faster pitches and ended up scoring 31 runs in the second inning. It's not the fast pitches that are the problem. Those can fairly reliably be turned into a single base run. It's when someone mixes it up with a super slow pitch and throws off your timing I got three strike outs in a row on him in the 3rd inning by alternating between 'slow' fastballs and super slow pitches.

@FaeKnight Yeah, I can hit the fastballs if I press the button as soon as the ball starts moving. But if I do that, then I'll completely miss any slowballs. It's pretty much about psyching out your opponent.

And even three super slow balls can really mess with someone's timing.

EDIT: Oh, and the fact that the two different types of pitches have vastly different 'slow pitch' ball speeds.

Pre-ordered this, does anyone know if there will be any plans to be able to play a round online with friends or fandoms?

As someone that doesn’t really have anyone to play Party with in the same household not sure how much fun I’ll have playing CPU on my own 😂

This one seems extremely tame compared to the other ones in terms of torturing the losers of the minigames. You lose a minigame, you say "Oh no, I lost" and that's it. Rarely or never does anyone get eaten, flung off a giant cliff, flattened, electrocuted, burned alive, etc.

Just a random meaningless observation.

Been putting the hours in with this recently and have to say I'm pretty impressed. Mario Party 10 was my favourite game on the WiiU with hundreds of hours played so I had high expectations and have been very pleased mechanically the game is sound and I think a few tweaks via dlc will make this a must own. My only complaint is that visually some parts of the game (such as the plaza) look a little boring. For a comparison the hub world of Mario Kingdom Battle was very vibrant. Looking forward to many hours ahead.

It is the last turn. Waluigi (the computer) needs to roll at least a 6 to get to the star and win the game.

Oh, what's this? He uses the item that lets him pick which number to roll. Surely he'll pick 6 so he can get to the star?

No, instead he picks 1 and lands on a ? space and gets attacked by a Chain Chomp. Nice choice.

Does anyone else have problems playing the online marathon? I have tried a number of times and I always get disconnected within the first 30 seconds.

I would assume that my internet connection is the problem since I get disconnected everytime. I am confused because I have been playing Splatoon 2 since it first came out with hardly any problems but I can't play Mario Party minigames online? Especially since upgraded my internet to a faster speed in September and I haven't had problems playing games online before or after that.

Anyone have any insight as to why the online marathon wouldn't work for me?

Hi,
How can we play multi account with my partner? One swithc, one game, 2 account.
On the switch both of us have account, if I start the game /with my account/ and share the joy-con, how can she play with her account?

lanszelot

RedderRugfish

@lanszelot You can't, both of you have to play on one account.

Recently, my brother in law and myself have convinced the wives into having some occasional gaming evenings.
We've been playing mario kart 8 DX and also overcooked a couple of times. The girls had never wanted to grab a controller before, but they liked both games (specially the competitive aspect of MK8). Now they want more games...
I've never played mario party, but I think this should be the perfect game for 4-player casual gaming, right?
Are the mechanics easy for newcomers and unexperienced players?
How long do the matches last usually?
There is enough variety in the minigames for not getting bored after some time? (I've read some people complaining about the game having only 4 boards...)
Are most of the minigames motion-based or do they rely more on the ability with the controller?

@cambotero
The mechanics are easy and it tells you how to,
You can choose the amount of rounds in the game and it gives you a suggestion on how long the game will be.
There are around 84 minigames so you probably won't be bored
The minigames change on what you do with the controller, using the buttons, or motions and such.

Fairly straight forward, but only 4 boards fyi

@cambotero It's a good fit I'd say. Only having 4 boards is a drawback though. The game has a decent amount of overall content, it's just divided between modes that we don't play as much.

@cambotero It only supports sideways joycons and it isn't playable in handheld mode

@cambotero It only supports the Joy-Con, but it switches from a horizontal to a vertical grip for some minigames.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.

@cambotero I think they made the right decision leaving out pro controller support. You really can play some of the mini games with a pro controller. Especially the rhythm games. I know I wouldn’t. I love my controller too much
