    Feb 25th, 2007 at 18:15:03     -    Mario Party (N64)

    Wow. Mario Party is officially WAY more fun when you're playing with other people. I recruited two of my friends to play with me for my second session, and the game is so much more interesting when you have other people invested in what you're doing, and when you are invested in what the other players are doing. It changed the gameplay immensely. After all, what fun is a board game when you're playing it solely versus yourself? Good multiplayer game desgin.

    Also, the computer on "normal" mode beat us depressingly. I would suggest "easy" mode. It's way more fun. :P

    Mario Party is really, really boring when you're playing alone. This is what I have learned from playing it alone. Also, I am terrible at mini-games.

    So yeah, overall the experiance has been rather frusturating. Controls are very easy, both for the main game and the mini-games (and unless you're trigger-happy like me, mini-games should not be THAT hard), because the game really only uses A, B, Start, and the control stick. I can see how it would be fun for many people- it's like a board game, really, with cool animations- but for one person, it's really not that fun to watch other characters constantly play mini-games and steal your coins. I'll wait and see just how much more boring it gets....

    More Alice....

    This game is still awesome. I'm still frusturated with the controls, but I've learned that saving strategically is almost vital. Weapons, which I now have four of, seem excellently designed- they are versatile, both in function and in mana usage, and changing them often really does make a differance. The puzzles are still interesting and somewhat difficult (although I seem to be having excellent luck with them....)

    I started this game because I needed something to play for a gamelog, but I would highly recommend it to anyone, and plan to keep playing. Always good.

    Alice, so far, is pretty damn cool. Voice acting is excellent (with the exception of Alice, but whatever) and for a game that came out in 2000, the graphics are excellent. I'm still trying to get used to the controls, but so far, the game hasn't really pulled any punches. Level designs are complicated and even occasionally challenging this early in the game- I can't wait for higher levels. Luckily, it looks like I have plenty of map left to explore.

    I have a feeling I'm still in tutorial a little bit, but I've got two weapons now, and seem to have gone over most of the game basics. However, unlike some other games I've played, the tutorial wasn't invasive- characters told me what I COULD do, but most of the rest was left for me to figure out and use (or not) at my own leisure. It was a refreshing change.
