Does the game look beautiful? Absolutely. Do the tracks look fun? No, that's all what I say. 

So your definition of a fun looking track is long empty depthless straightaways. Gotcha!


Are you implying I'm wrong, sir? Because, even having these mixed feelings, I'm buying the game yes or yes, so no need of of that sarcasm.

What sarcasm? I only said I now understand how you could be saying such crazy things!



1. 89 on Metacritic.
2. Big hype train.
3. Will reach over 200k pre-orders in US.

No good boost would be extremely surprising.

Let's not forget that it managed to divide by zero on the COMG charts yesterday!

I was at the Gamestop Mario Kart 8 demo showing this weekend.

The line was three 4 year old Asian kids who snuck in somehow. No idea where their parents were. After they left, I played to my hearts content.

Visuals were nothing amazing. I played the Airport level and the water level. I got nothing from the anti-gravity effect. If I was able to see the rest of the track upside down then it would have been interesting. But when you go upside down, all you see is the track you are on.

Speed was alright, but I felt it could have been a lot faster. F-Zero like speed is what I am thinking about. Everything else was there.

 

I give my demo play a 7/10.

But the point of this is that there was no line. Gamestop employees did not even act like it existed. Makes me feel like it is to late. Nintendo waited too long to bring out it's big guns. Even Einsem , a member on this site, said that he was able to play over and over again. But at the Pikmin 3 demo and other E3 like demo events it was hard to get even a second play let alone three or four.

 

What do you all think? Too late to even matter? Only current owners will buy the game and hardly any new games will take the leap?

 

I have a picture of the non-line, but my phone is not sending it. Will work on it and get it sent to my email hopefully.


Maybe I'm more easily impressed but MK8 looks gorgeous to me!

The world around you is great! But unlike Donkey Kong TF, you do not really interact with that world. The players, to me, could have been much clearer...crisper, etc. But I only played two tracks at the demo event. I will still buy it, maybe I am wrong. Either way, I am sure that multiplayer alone will be worth the purchase!

Spurge have faith bro do you really think they would put the best shit on a demo? Demos from my opinion are always crap and never do anything but give people an outlet. And for all the Battle Mode naysayers it's called better online features and racing is battling anyway. Mario Kart will boost sales and not far behind is E3 like I said before with my prediction Wii U will lead in the summer. Parents will not buy their 8 year old a PS4/XBOX1 if they wanted a console its too much and they dont have kids games outside the Lego games.
