Mario Kart 8 is goddamn Beautiful

14 posts in this topic

Hi Guys just thought I'd share the Mario Kart joy. Game is awesome feels fantastic and looks amazing.

Also a great addition and a first for Nintendo is letting you share your highlights or an entire replay on Youtube.

The tradition of reusing old tracks continues but these have been completely redisigned to take advantage of the gravity defying themes as well as looking stunning with all new models and textures.

Track design is so creative - it really does remind you why Nintendo are the kings of the Kart racer and why everything that isn't Mario Kart just feels... less. 

And the Bowser's castle level is an absolute BOSS with fantastic music.

Here's a highlights reel.

And also channeling SSX there is now a level which is all down hill no laps first man across the line wins:

 

 

Fun times.

I've played it and I love every bit of it. It's that good but at the harder settings, it will kick your butt.

Here's my video.

150cc star cup.....1st place in track 1,2, and 3.  Then during the final lap on the last turn of track 4 I get combo'd by every shell known to man......so very disappointing.

Not to mention Hyrule Warriors, Xenoblade, Bayonetta 2, and possibly a new Star Fox game.

They're selling it here in Aus for $180 with Skylanders, going to pick one up this week and Mario Kart 8 too. Anyone up for a few races anytime soon?

I think 12 months ago I would of shipped Joe my Wii with a list of gamecube and Wii games, but I think e3 this year has convinced him lightly.

I'm hoping the kiddie mentality that people have about Nintendo is shaken soon
