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

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

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!

Special thanks to VentureBeat intern Talia Chriqui for editing this video instead of going out to watch The Hunger Games last night like you had planned — your bonus check is in the mail (but not really, because you’re an intern).
