Mario Week: Opener!



Hey everyone Welcome back to Mario Week, the Week long event when we talk about well Mario games! This opener is just a blip for whats going to come up, and we want you to check out last years Mario week as well as other stuff that’s related that maybe you wouldn’t normally check out.

Anyone who has grown up with a Nintendo system will in almost all cases (but surely not all) played a Mario game. Mario is one of the original creative IP’s created by Nintendo and as such has become its mascot whether in actuality or just out of fan popularity. Much like how many people know who Hulk Hogan or The Rock are (Wrestlers) even non-gamers know Mario and that he is related to video gaming.

We here at the ONS Gaming don’t just write posts we also do other writing work on gaming or in B.T.’s case make videos, whether its alone, or a collab with Tirc or a Let’s Play with Jon. You can expect some of this kind of work with this event, with the return of Sooo Hax video series (the first was done by B.T. dealing with hack games of the first Zelda game).

The other example; (other written work) can be seen in the form of The Bottom Line stuff that can be found in the page with the same name:

The BottomLine

Mario Party 8 (click here for post)


* Mario Party Series entry

* Family oriented game play

* New and various Party/mini-games

* Different themed maps like ones from other entries in the series


* Annoying & pointless non-Mario related characters

* Does not include characters from previous Mario party games

* Cheating/cheap rubber-band AI reminiscent of NES/SNES games

* Pigeon holed controls

* Different Maps: each containing different rules, game play, and objectives. This issue lends itself to players picking one map over and over…

* Insulting prizes; items that are typically already unlocked in older games.

* It’s Mario Party 8

Bottom Line: Don’t Play, and certainly don’t buy.  [Get an older one or try Mario Party 9! See B.T.’s MP9 review]

The Bottom Line series of quick reviews are semi-comical but the bottom line is always serious its advice that you can take or not but we do try and list a few pros and cons that are completely legit for you the consumers! Since these are oft really short we decided to make it a page rather than in post form so check it out!!!

These are some of the things you can look forward to as well as stuff you can check out even during non-events!
