NXpress Nintendo Podcast 256: Mario Party Superstars and Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water Reviews



Mario Party Superstars

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, we have a packed show as Cameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill share their thoughts on a smorgasbord of Nintendo news before reviewing some of the latest big releases. The gang starts out on a positive note by sharing their early impressions of Pikmin Bloom, an experience that may just be a glorified pedometer but still delivers relaxing and satisfying gameplay. Next up, Cameron and Campbell rant about the lackluster Switch version of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a Cloud version whose glitching graphics and lagging controls leave much to be desired for portable players.

Moving on to the main event, Marc takes center stage with Mario Party Superstars, the long-awaited return to form for the Mario Party franchise with remasters of some of the best minigames and boards from the first few games in the series. With surprisingly solid online, plenty of Mario Party lore, and nonstop excellent party game action, Mario Party Superstars seems poised to be one of the Switch’s best multiplayer romps. Cameron follows up with just a bit of contrast by reviewing the remaster of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, a new version of a Wii U cult classic that may just be one of the most psychologically-frightening games around.
