With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

Mario Party... what in those two words sound more out of place?  The mario, or the party?  He should be out killing bowser & buddies, instead of getting scammed into taking black stars.  But what makes this game so attractive?

The interactivity between players.  I played this single player, and I turned it off, because I got tired of winning by 5 stars.  But when I played it with 3 different people, well, I still turned it off because I got tired of winning by 5 stars, but at least I was able to brag about it! 

The point of the game, you ask?  Well, its simple.  Roll a dice, land on a square, play a mini-game, win coins, buy stars.  Simple, yes.  Easy, yes.  Annoying, yes.

The annoying thing about this game is that the dice roll is completely random for you, but computer players, seem always to get 7 & up (no pun intended). 

And the mini-games tend to get a little repetitive.  I mean, there are 50 different ones, but each are classified into categories, such as 4 player royale, 2Vs2, 1Vs3, or 1 player only.  After a while, you've played all the 4 player ones like 50 times, and it just ain't fun anymore.

All in all, this is a good game, although it lacks a certain Mario depth too it.  (scary, mario game with no debt!)
