Mario Sports Mix video - Full Access Playthrough

This here’s a FAP, not a review, but I can easily say this is one of the more vile Mario games I’ve ever played. No, I’m not speaking strictly as a fan of the main series - I’ve loved almost every Mario sports game ever. Love the Tennis games, Strikers Charged is tits, and even though I hate the sport of golf and the people who play it, Toadstool Tour is in my Top 5 GameCube games, and the GBC version is one of my favorite portable RPGs of all time (Seriously!)  With that in mind, Mario Sports Mix hurt me… deeply. Luckily, this is how GR deals with trauma: BOOMSHAKALAKA!

In addition to something we enjoy immensely on TalkRadar, doing cornball sportscasters was just another way of dealing with something traumatic. Which Mario Sports Mix very much was, for me anyway.  While it’s nowhere near as bad as a lot of awful Wii sports compilations, (although it’s certainly guilty of the same uninspired halfassery) it’s certainly the worst Mario sports experience I can recall having. Perhaps the rest of the series set the bar too high… but yeah, derivative, fugly and almost completely devoid of depth and personality. Now how the hell did Square-Enix get roped into putting Chocobos in this? MAN, PUT A TENT ON THAT CIRCUS - BANG!

    Donkey Bong gets me everytime :D Seriously though this was the reason I began listening to TalkRadar in the first place. Better late than never I suppose lol.

    Have no interest in this game, but thumbs up on the Pee-wee Herman and fast break jokes.

    Am I correct in recalling that Shigeru Miyamoto said that Mario wouldn't be getting whored out anymore?
  • JPorFavor - February 10, 2011 6:29 p.m.

    This is the first time rhat I've read GR that I haven't seen a writer refer to themselves as "We". And one of the best FAPs you've ever done.
  • lovinmyps3 - February 10, 2011 4:21 a.m.

    You guys made this bearable.
  • Crabhand - February 10, 2011 1:22 a.m.

    Awesome FAP as always. You guys have great caster voices.
  • NightCrawler_358 - February 9, 2011 11:47 p.m.

    SHABLAM! No but that game looks horrible. Also, if it counts, I love the game Mario Tennis Power Tour on the GBA.
  • foxyexplosion - February 9, 2011 9:25 p.m.

    kinda died at 8 minutes or so but before that you guys were on fire. I love pretty much every line Brett came up with too. Great work
  • chrisda - February 9, 2011 8:37 p.m.

    if you have extremely low bandwidth, the sound quality lowers, it sounds like an actual old time sports commentary :D
  • philipshaw - February 9, 2011 7:33 p.m.

    Love the sport commentary voices in this FAP
  • TruckThunders - February 9, 2011 6:54 p.m.

    Comedic gold. Such great commentary on what looks to be an extremely lackluster game. I would gladly tune in to a FAP on every sport available on this title, just for the laughs.
  • therawski - February 9, 2011 6:19 p.m.

    This FAP is hilarious, I can't believe it! You can see immediately that this basketball game sucks balls because the camera should be on the side so the hoops are on the left and right sides of the screen, not both in the middle, very unfair. But hey great job riffing this game deserved it!
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - February 9, 2011 4:26 p.m.

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words! This was, without a doubt, the most fun I've ever had doing a FAP. We were trying to keep in character never laughing, so just about any silence you hear is me giggling away from the mic. I can't remember the last time Elston made me laugh so damned hard @shawksta Never meant to imply you shouldn't try it, and I too was excited about the FF/DQ characters making appearances. However, those written words were written for people like YOU, specifically. This doesn't come anywhere near the greatness of the titles you mentioned, and instead seems like a last ditch effort by Nintendo (and Square?!) to take advantage of the "Multi-Sport Waggle minigame" fad before the world stops caring. I never spent much time with the Mario and Sonic Olympic games, so perhaps I should've known better, but the Wii already showed it can create a deep, entertaining, and just-plain-awesome Mario sports title right out of the gate with Strikers Charged. That Sports Mix is essentially four enhanced minigames is disappointing, but the fact that it's coming out in place of a full-fledged single Sports game is heartbreaking.

    I would LOVE to see a FAP of all the sports. That was simply hilarious. An alley-oops!
  • super0sonic - February 9, 2011 10:44 a.m.

    Aw man this was great!
  • Eaxis - February 9, 2011 9:41 a.m.

    Bad game, great Full Access Preview.
  • capavon23 - February 9, 2011 6:26 a.m.

    "Sigh" convoluted
  • capavon23 - February 9, 2011 6:20 a.m.

    I wonder with the F.A.P if someone Fapped while watching Mario with the F.A.P, Mario himself would Fap. It's a bit confuluted but damn that would be amazing. "Note to self" "Must find person to Fap to Mario"
  • Xtapolapopotamus - February 9, 2011 4:54 a.m.

    BOOM SHAKALAKA! Ho man if this was baseball I'da called it a touchdown! God I love watching you guys FAP, and I love your sports commentator voices just as much. Awesome as always, guys!
  • Zepaw - February 9, 2011 4:53 a.m.

    I mean to say Mario Party 5; hit submit too soon. Forgive my error!! As someone who HATES sports games I could play Mario Sports games all day long. I never had a good feeling about Mario Sports Mix. Guess the belief it would just be some throwaway games packed together is turning out true.
