KoopaTV Live Reacts: Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3: Super Mario Party

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Plus returning favourites.

This time, Nintendo Treehouse Live was showcasing Super Mario Party, which aims to bring the estranged Mario Party series back to its former glory. King Bowser is now a normal playable character, so Rawk and I are rooting for him.

This log also has some information on Pokémon Trainer and the Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Check out our E3 2018 Schedule for more-or-less details.

[1:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They got some scary commercial going on to Kid Icarus Smash music.

[1:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: All the way back from Brawl.

[1:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I remember being scarred by the Subspace Emissary level.

[1:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chiko is here with Sam, Morgan, and a male Sam.

[1:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're refreshing the franchise by going back to how Party played a long time ago.

[1:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bowser's a playable character?

[1:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Male Sam is Bowser.

[1:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Where's Andrey.

[1:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *Audrey

[1:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeah

[1:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Toadette is the star holder.

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bowser  looks like he's gonna do close-quarters combat.

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The dice blocks are 6-sided.

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And go from 1 to 6.

[1:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead of being 6-sided and going from 1 to 10.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can choose different dice blocks depending on your character.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So Peach Dice Block is different than Mari0's.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf Bowser's dice block

Super Mario Party Bowser's Dice Block
Expected probability for spaces moved is 4.66, as opposed to a normal 3.5.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: -3 coins, -3 coins, 1, 8, 9, or 10.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So if you get minus coins you don't even move.

[1:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's a terrible die.

[1:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's a totally Bowser thing to do, but...

[1:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Vacuums.

[1:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tether like ARMS.

[1:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is the definition of lame Mario Party mini-game.

[1:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You gotta do Joy-Con poses to leave the minigame.

[1:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Want to note that the character dice blocks all have different expected probabilities.

[1:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can recruit ally NPCs with their own dice blocks that add to yours.

[1:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which I guess is why the numbers are lower than previous games.

[1:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Toadette is Breath of the Wild-ing with balloons.

[1:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Do y'all find this compelling?

[1:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like the graphics.

[1:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Peach just drank the equivalent of DKCR's Banana Potion.

[1:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...I find it interesting from a mathematical perspective.

[1:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Treehouse cheated the items into the characters' inventories.

[1:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was wondering where they came from.

[1:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It's always fun to watch Bowser suffer." - Chiko

[1:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol

[1:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I DON'T LIKE HER FUNNY ACCENT OR HER OPINIONS ON MY DAD.

[1:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 1 vs. 3 minigame, everyone against Chiko.

[1:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: This UI is too clinical.

[1:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: SPIKE

[1:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf the minigame is based on mail delivery with drones

[1:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: I actually know who Spike is now.

[1:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: And could instinctively name him.

[1:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: (Thanks Mario Tennis Aces.)

[1:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Drone is overpowered.

[1:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dat technology.

[1:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: TIE?

[1:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Special Event.

[1:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: :item_box:

[1:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Don't like how loud the brassy turn-start jingle is.

[1:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rolling a zero activates whatever space you're on.

[1:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Lakitu functions as Boo did in old games; steal coins and stars.

Super Mario Party Bowser gets star from Toadette sad Mario Peach Luigi
Bowser gets a star!

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Bowser could win.

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: ....

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: nope.

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Soooooo close.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bowser was celebrating 2nd place.

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Bowser only needed two more coins to tie with Mario.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IF ONLY HE DIDN'T ROLL A MINUS 3 COINS ON TURN 1.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf banana

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Banana

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dude, are bananas really the theme of this E3?

Super Mario Party Toad's Rec Room Nintendo Switch banana
A banana!?

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder these are Treehouser's hands.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And not computer-generated things.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is the first time we've had this camera angle.

[1:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So you need two Nintendo Switch consoles to do Toad's Rec Room.

[1:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: aka Nintendo's "one Switch per person" goal.

[1:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: too many cords

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: The Smash theme became really loud right when this menu screen popped up

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: And made it look like those were all Smash stages.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: But they're just mini-games.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: DIDDY

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think we knew Diddy was here but still.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The goal of this game is to get your picture taken by the Koopa Troopa paparazzi.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But it's a free-for-all so they're all fighting to get to the camera, and you can punch people away.

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like this mini game

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DAISY WON

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BOO.

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's a very good concept.

[1:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's like Mushroom Mix-Up but with content.

[1:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Diddy vs. Giant Enemy Crab

[1:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Poor Diddy

[1:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Steaks.

[1:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[1:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Where's Madame Loins?

[1:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: She'd love this.

[1:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Goomba is holding the pan with a glove?

Super Mario Party Sizzling Stakes steaks minigame Goomba glove floating pan
Look at the bottom right quadrant... how is Goomba having a glove?

[1:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Sizzling Steaks)

[1:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *Sizzling Stakes

[1:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who even is Chiko?

[1:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: A developer?

[1:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, she's a localiser.

[1:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And knows different languages.

[1:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Next up is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, again, so we might as well not end this log until after.

[1:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Long Lost Fighters" sounds like a mode.

[1:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Her name is "Chiko Bird"

It's probably about Pichu and Young Link.

[1:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like how Rex just met up with the long-lost Shulk and Fiona.

[1:32 PM] RawkHawk2010:

Super Mario Party Slaparazzi Diddy Kong violence
...Jerk.


[1:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, they're back.

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Smiddy, Roxy, Demetrius.

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're showing Pokémon Trainer, good idea.

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring Leaf.

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm happy Leaf is here.

[1:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeh

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That was requested back in Brawl.

[1:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Of course, it's Leaf to pander to Gen 1.

[1:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Can we get some Sinnoh pandering and have Dawn?

[1:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: :dawn_get_it_away:

[1:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: (she's being sarcastic.)

[1:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They aren't showing specials.

[1:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rock Smash no longer available.

[1:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For Charizard.

[1:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: The entirety of Pokemon Trainer and Wolf are my personal benefits from everyone coming back.

[1:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: For the record, I was Squirtle in PMD2.

[1:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Switching is a lot faster with Pokémon Trainer.

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who were you in PMD2 again?

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Turtwig, with Squirtle partner.

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: My partner was...

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: ...I have no idea.

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're doing Pokémon Trainer vs. Pokémon Trainer.

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In Saffron City.

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: HAZARDS

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Porygon!

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yay.

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Poké Ball items.

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: I wish both those Explodes have been on-screen at the same time

[1:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: To show how far things have come.

[1:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Electrodes!

[1:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *Electrode

[1:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FINAL SMAS

[1:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Still Triple Finish (for all Pokémon)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Pokémon Trainer Final Smash Triple Finish it's super effective
TRIPLE FINISH! IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!

[1:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: I accidentally fused Exploud with Electrode and ended up saying just a normal word.

[1:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like seeing Ivysaur riding the Dragoon.

[1:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: How many quadrupeds are in Smash besides Ivysaur?

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charizard still has Flare Blitz from when he was soloing in Brawl.

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu?

[1:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well he's kinda both.

[1:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why isn't Ivysaur Bullet Seeding?

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Camera zoomed in and slowed down when Ivysaur jumped on the proximity mine.

[1:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now Ice Climbers.

[1:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nana is faster.

[1:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This depends on how good Nana's AI is.

[1:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: When did Smash percentage first get decimals?

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As of yesterday.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Side-B can now KO.

[1:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Solo Popo recovers in Little Mac levels.

[1:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can't chaingrab in this game with the Ice Climbers.

[1:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Grab combos and chaingrabs were why the Ice Climbers were good characters in Melee and Brawl.

[1:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: still dunno what abra does

[1:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Teleports around.

[1:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently it can Teleport you, too.

[1:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: oh

[1:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If you're in its range.

[1:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nana's AI is baaaaaaaaaaaaad.

[1:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If Popo eats a Maxim Tomato, that doesn't heal Nana.

[1:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Nana has an invisible % metre)

[1:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They don't face-to-face like a Kirby game.

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Has this Final Smash been nerfed?

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Buffed.

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Disappears a lot quicker but I guess it immediately kills.

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, Glacier just did passive damage in Brawl.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And froze you if you touched it.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THEY'RE OUT,

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hollow Knight next.
