Broke many N64 controllers playing this game. Those analog sticks are goddamn terrible.

Edit: Cider? Fuck cider!

Double edit: Apparently I hold the N64 controller like a maniac.

How was the stream? First Premium content in months that I got excited about before it happened.

We wish @danryckert all the best in his future endeavours.

This game ruins friendships, can't wait to watch it all.

Alright let's do this!

This is the saddest I've seen Jeff. This stream was wonderful.

This was the best worst best thing. Dan, you're a magnificent monster.

Posted by Vengeance64

If you look closely, you can see Jeff's soul being slowly eroded.

I love you Dan, you take trolling seriously and that's an admirable quality in any human bean.

Hehe Jeff is so miserable. Dan, you are awesome.

The funny thing is, they did a 3 hour session of Fortune Street a while back, but this is substantially worse?

Posted by Draxyle

Thank you for finally bringing Mario Party to Giantbomb, Dan. They got away without a proper match for waaay too long.

I hope the crew isn't soured on doing the second game anytime soon, the first game is cruel and unusual punishment in a number of ways.

Edited by SpunkyHePanda

Okay guys, about to hit play. My hope for this is that everyone just says everything they need to say at the top and then just tries their damnedest to have fun and not be a sourpuss the whole time. Alright, let's party................ MARIO PARTY.

Edit: Ahahaha, what a silly dream. Ah well, thanks for staying enthused, Dan.

Holy god, almost 3 hours! This is going to be great.

They should call this game Waluigi Party because it fucking sucks

My membership was expiring today, and I was going to wait a bit to renew. After watching this live, how could I not immediately renew. I teared multiple times.

100 World Story >>>>>>>>> any Mario Party game

Posted by Flacracker

Please do more.

@nightriff: Glorious. Jeff was just radiating hatred for 3 hours straight. It was like a 24-gaming marathon crammed into 3 hours.

I need to watch this RIGHT NOW. Dan Rykert you magnificent bastard.

Posted by mrfluke

this was easily the best premium content in quite a while, this and that velvet sundown quicklook, one of the best weeks GB had this year easily.

IN good conscience I must say that I did not make this.

Some duder made it, posted in the live chat, and some guy on twitter posted it. If you are the person please come forward so i can give credit where credit is due

EDIT: I AM A MAN OF PRINCIPLE DAMMIT

Perfect ending to a fantastic stream. It's the only way it could have gone down.

Oh God, this Mario Party death march is going to be greeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaat.

Edited by Sydlanel

Honestly, I didn't think that my appreciation for Dan Ryckert could sink any lower.. and yet .. it just did. How low can you go, you monster?

Holy hell I almost felt bad for the Jeff, Brad and Drew for more than an hour.

I genuinely thought they's pass out of boredom / lack of interest / sheer contempt for this hellspawn of a "game"...

This ... thing... really proves that you can put a Mario sticker on feces and it'll sell.

Things considered, this was a fantastic show, for all the most horrifying reasons.

Posted by Vandell

Oh god. Watching their suffering and Dan's insufferable happiness was amazing.

Yep. Dan's a fantastic addition to the Bomb Squad. <3

Posted by the47ronin

Great feature

Posted by DeviTiffany

This makes me want to watch Giant Bomb play Fortune Street again.

I feel that the whole point of this was entertainment. Jeff is playing up his hate role because he is fucking great at it. There were plenty of laughs shared between the guys during the show so they were obviously not incredibly bored or upset as you seem to think. The bit is "omg we are playing this dumb video game" and it works great. I know Jeff has strong and differing opinions on stuff, but you almost make it seem like Jeff literally hates his friend Dan, the guy he just hired. It is a show, and you seem to see half of that. Have a little more faith in the duders.

God bless/damn you Dan Ryckert.

Posted by divergence

this is the only Mario party game I've ever played, pretty much skipped every Mario party game that came out since. I remember very little of it except it started to blister the palm of my hand.

Posted by TheDew

This was great for a one time thing, but I hope this feature was just that. We got all the funny moments we're gonna get out of it, but these games are just not good enough to warrant multiple "episodes," going through of all of the MP games. The only person genuinely having a good time was Dan, and I just think there are better couch multiplayer games they could take advantage of that are legitimately fun. Sorry Dan.

Posted by Hansolol

Sweet Baseketball reference, Drew. Nice work.

Edited by Sydlanel

@fonzinator: oh no, I know its all for the laughs... I've just got a dark sense of humor. It is excruciating, but fun.

I did think the laughs wore slightly thin for a while there.. but particularly the ending was kinda spectacular. Personally though, I don't know if I could play this game for so long maintaining my sanity... much less with Rycket.

Thats why I said it was fantastic for horrifying reasons.

Edited by Gruebacca

This stream is funny because I totally understand Jeff's pain.

Posted by csl316

I started liking Dan less and less watching this. He was being a really smug dick too much of the time. I'd definitely stop hanging out with someone if they acted like that playing a friendly game.

Mario Party is not a friendly game.
