GamesBeat vs. VentureBeat: Mario Party 9 Showdown (video)

VentureBeat reporter Meghan Kelly had been talking smack to the GamesBeat crew about her “unparalleled” Mario Party skills for a while now. She even slapped us with a glove a couple of times trying to initiate a duel. Who does that anymore?!

Luckily, we happened to have a copy of Mario Party 9 sitting around the office, so the challenge was accepted, and this poorly-planned video was birthed soon after. Enjoy!
