Mario Party 10 Bundle


Nintendo is back with another fun-filled party game for the Wii U! The Mario Party 10 bundle ($59.99) not only includes hours of excitement but it also comes with a Mario amiibo! The tenth installation of the Mario Party series features Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, Toad, Toadette, Rosalina, and Donkey Kong as playable characters. Bowser is also a playable character but only in a special party mode. Following the footsteps of its predecessors, Mario Party 10 is packed with a variety of mini games and at least five different game boards to choose from in the Mario Party game mode. In Mario Party 10, there are two new party modes to choose from aside from the normal Mario Party and these modes are the Bowser Party and the amiibo party.

For those new to the Mario Party series, the regular Mario Party game mode allows up to four players. These players choose from a series of game boards and these game boards have their own unique themes and mechanics. The players take turns hitting a dice block (1-6) that determines how many steps they can take and stepping on certain game board spaces may trigger a mini-game event or give them power-ups. Winning a mini-game will reward you with Mini Stars which is needed to win this specific party mode. Mini Stars can also be found spread out across the board in random locations as well. The player with the most Mini Stars at the end of the board’s path is crowned as the winner.

The second game mode is called the Bowser Party and this mode allows up to five players. In this mode, one of the players can play as Bowser using the Wii GamePad while the other four players play as Mario and his friends on the Wii remotes. The players, including Bowser, are placed on a game board and the four players must move towards the end of the game board while avoiding Bowser. The player controlling Bowser gets to roll multiple dices (corresponding to the number of players) to move closer to Mario and his friends and if he reaches them, the five players will be placed in a mini game scenario. In the mini game, the Bowser player has to deplete all the health points of the four players while the four players dodge Bowser’s attacks. Bowser wins this mode if all the players’ health points are gone while the players win if they can make it to the end of the board’s path without losing all their health.

The last mode is the amiibo mode and this is where the Mario amiibo that comes with the bundle makes its debut. In the amiibo party mode, you get to use your amiibo as a game piece on a smaller board with mechanics similar to the Mario Party game mode. This mode is reminiscent of the older Mario Party games in that players collect coins to purchase stars.

Besides the Mario amiibo, the Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, Toad, and Bowser amiibos are also compatible with this game mode. These six amiibos are part of the Super Mario wave 1 amiibo series. The benefits of connecting any of these six amiibos to the Mario Party 10 game is that you will be allowed to play on the connected amiibo’s specially themed game board. Each game board is equipped with its own items and quirks. The Super Mario wave 1 amiibos are primarily compatible with Mario Party 10 but they also provide bonuses for games like Super Smash Bros. (except Toad) where you can customize and level your character and Mario Kart 8 (except Bowser and Toad) where you can get a special Mii racing costume based off the amiibo you connect to the Wii U.

Nintendo amiibo


Nintendo is introducing a new way to experience gaming through character figurines known as amiibo ($12.99). Players can connect their amiibo with compatible Wii U games so that their amiibo can interact with the game. To connect your amiibo to the game, all you have to do is hold the amiibo over the Wii U gamepad. The first set of amiibo that will come out are amiibos for the Super Smash Bros. game on the Wii U.

Among these amiibo are some of our favorite heroes and heroines such as Mario, Peach, and Yoshi from the Super Mario series, Pikachu from the Pokemon series, Samus Aran from the Metroid series, Marth from Fire Emblem, Link from the Legend of Zelda, Fox from Star Fox, Kirby, and Donkey Kong. However, we have some other familiar faces such as the Villager from Animal Crossing and the Wii Fit Trainer from the Wii Fit games.

An example of how these amiibos will work is that connecting the amiibos while playing Super Smash Bros. will allow you to fight against, fight with, or watch it fight against other characters. Your amiibo will be able to increase its attack and defense and also learn new fighting techniques and its leveling capabilities will be capped at level 50. All the changes that are made to the amiibo are then stored on the amiibo itself.

Wii U

So where do I begin? Well for starters, Nintendo is coming out with another great and innovative gaming station, but this new device can do more than just play games! The Wii U is probably, up to date the coolest piece of technology I have ever seen! The new Wii U has the ability to act as both a remote control for your T.V. as well as a game controller! The Wii U comes with the basic Wii controls, such as the X,Y,A,B buttons, the control pad, and the analog sticks, but the Wii U also comes with new buttons to make it easier for gamers to play their favorite games, these are the trigger like L, ZL, R, and ZR buttons. The Wii U also comes with a huge screen in between the controls which gives you the ability to play your games without using the T.V! This can be very useful for families with a limited amount of Televisions in the home because if your Dad wants to watch his sports game and you want to play your video game, you can still play with the Wii U even without the use of the T.V. therefore you don’t have to stop playing your games and your dad doesn’t have to miss the game! Another crazy feature about the Wii U is it has a built in micro phone and speaker. This will allow you to engage in conversations with your friend’s right from the Wii U! Other features include a volume switch, a power button, and my favorite, the TV button. This feature enables you to access the TV controls even though your Wii U is turned off! All in all the Wii U looks amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on this new product!
