Mario Kart 8

Recommended Posts

I suppose it's no worse than the Callway stuff in Mario Golf WT really, but it feels weirder here because it's such a well known brand.

 

It also feel weirder because it looks horrendously out of place. The Mario Golf: World Tour, Wave Race and Pikmin advertising stuff looked fine in-game.

On the other hand, that does actually make it kinda funny in of itself here though :laughing:

I actually thought the DLC was fake.

 

Looking at the screenshots, it still looks fake. I literally did a double take at it!

That's the thing. It's so ridiculous, and that in itself makes it so Nintendo

That's either one tiny car, or one giant plumber.

I'm really excited to play this now.

 

It's been so long since MK Wii (which I didn't really like) and as much as I loved MK7, I played the shit out of that what with online matches and the league etc. I definitely got fatigued with that game after all the hours I put into it.

 

I'm definitely not here for the bikes though, which should have been scrapped for all eternity. :heh:

Well they have balanced bikes, if that makes you feel better.

 

Bikes are better at turning, but cars are faster.

A mate brought over his Wii U and Mario Kart 8 yesterday.

 

We played a couple of Grand Prix, I've seen all the tracks and while the game looks absolutely fucking incredible I have to say: Meh.

It's Mario Kart, alright. And that's about it. I've come to dislike the Mario Kart franchise as it's really the same game over and over again.

 

Here I thought it would be a potential system seller for me :( *hoping for Smash Bros*

 

And people, before you bash me into oblivion and back: It's a good game, I appreciate that Nintendo still has what it takes to make good games.

It's just: My taste has changed and Mario Kart has begun to bore me.

 

I guess when we have 4 player races next Saturday it will be fun, but I got sick of playing after 1 1/2 hours yesterday, so let's see how long that will last :p

Pretty sure that "midnight" translates to 23:00 for us here in the UK when it comes to midnight eShop releases...

I take it RedShells absence on here is due to either he has his copy or has died from the hype. :D

Well I managed to finish the first cup and now I am gutted that I have to go to work. :(

 

But I shouldn't complain, I have the game a day early and for that I am grateful, at least it will be waiting for when I come home later. : peace:

 

I finally have a reason to exist again thanks to Mario Kart 8! :heh:

 

Being serious though, it has cheered me up no end. :)

Dispatched.

 

EDIT: removed the gif. Post looked rude/arrogant even though I had no intention of doing it that way.
