nothing to discuss.

buy it play it have fun with it.

this is mario kart we are talking about not some 30 mil. big budget real life shoot 'em up rollercoaster.

People sure found alot to discuss when this game was still rumoured to be 1080p, but sure let's just sweep the facts under the rug.

Omg! Its not 1080p! sweep under the rug!!! OMG!!!

Oh thats right, who cares? 

Alot of people obviously do, why do you think that whole 1080p rumour spread so fast? You were also in that thread calling people salty for downplaying the graphics, but now you're here pulling the "who cares"-card and talking about how it should be about fun+gameplay only.



Its true, who cares, wat i seen watching trailers/gameplay/etc is wat i kno im going to play. You obviously didn't look at the reason why i was doing that lmao. Your pretty common here always trying to downplay anything nintendo, its not surprising.

I was defending against realism/cartoony games http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6282504.

With Kyledog, he always has something to say that makes everything look like a joke, hence the salty pics. Need to get your facts straight

"It's not like it was officially confirmed"

If everybody talks about and says it is, and Nintendo just sits idly by not saying a thing, it's the same thing as lying.
People started talking about WD 1080p/60fps on PS4 and one day later things were already being cleared up.
Nintendo let this slide for months.

Take from what whatever you want. I know what I take from it.

This is the worst conspiracy I've ever seen.

OT: I'm most disappointed in that loss of one frame. That'll definitely ruin me. At least now I can blame Nintendo for me losing to Rol all the time on Online races, it wasn't my fault the game is 59 FPS instead of 60.

Wow, this right here is wats going to drive the industry down. If you seriously changed your mind about getting a wiiu because of a game that isn't 1080p and instead 720p then..... -_-

I cant believe wat im seeing, this is literally sad. I miss the old days where it was about fun+gameplay 100%, now it comes down to this.

I fail to see how a "damper on excitement" translates to "not going to buy a WiiU".

It's the same thing I said in my Bayonetta rant months ago. I will buy it, I will probably have fun with it but I am still less excited than I could be and it will definitely lessen my experience.

Graphics do matter. That's why we're in the 8th generation of gaming and not still in the first.

The low resolution and lack of AA would be understandable if the actual graphics were impressive, but even they are below average.


I don't know man, I haven't seen a Kart racer looking this good at 60FPS on consoles at 720p yet, I mean, I don't know what the fuck Rare or Media Molecule are doing these days, but they sure haven't topped MK8 yet on awesomeness. Hell, they never even topped MKWii on actual gameplay on duct taped Gamecubes, so I don't know if graphics is really the key thing, then again, I actually do play a lot of games that are spread across different platforms, so maybe I just don't see games the same way as a company focused person.


Youre the one talking about different companies and studios so clearly you are focused more on that than the facts which DF presented.



Expected. The AA thing is really funny. Just shows how far ahead of other devs Nintendo is, they don't have to use the common tricks of the trade to make their game look outstanding.

Wanna fight about it, show me any 720p game with no AA that looks as good as Mario Kart 8.

Day one purchase!

You know, it might seem awfully petty but I was really looking forward to getting a Wii U soon. But now this excitement got a heavy damper. I always thought 1080p for a WiiU games sounded pretty fishy but I didn't think it would be impossible. I was looking very much forward to MK8 in crisp 1080p60. I was genuinely excited.

Now reality got me again. 720p without AA just sounds repulsive.

I'm with you, I thought the game was supossed to push the Wii U to it's limits... I am seriously thinking on cancelling my pre-order. You can't play a game if your eyes are puking.

Bet your eyes weren't puking at those trailers.

what fact ? it was never a fact.. like you said just rumored to be 1080p. no one is playing dumb here except children on forums who talk and believe in whatever someone says and know nothing about tech..sure people are going to be excited just to prove the others (PS,XOnations) that Wii U is worth it and it is. MK was never about graphics its about fun and for now its the best looking game on Wii U and Nintendrons have the right to be excited about it just like Sonydrons are about anything and everything that is released on playstation even if it is a peanut.
