A little bit of a downer. I like the fact that they spend a whole paragraph saying how 59 frames per second was so noticable, but games with frame rates that fluctuate or run at lower speeds they tend to completely ignore or praise the system that runs it better. Thought that was a bit funny.

720p native, 1080p upscaled is also a bit of a downer. Especially when they didn't use any AA. So the jaggy edges are going to be appearant.

Still looks like an awesome game. Played it at Gamestop and had fun, and can only imagine playing at my house and online will bea blast.

So wii u is on par with ps4 because they have trouble with 1080p 60 fps



Is the wiiu even more powerful then the ps3/360. GT5 and wipe out both run at 1080p/60fps with AA, more detail and better graphics, the wiiu hardware makes me sad.



Mario Kart on the SNES is still one of my favourite gaming moments. Pretty sure it wasn't 1080p/60. People need to stop putting res above gameplay. The game will be fun and the res will not detract or distract.

1080p 60FPS is usually bollocks (in split-screen even more) so I'm not surprised.

No AA is indeed a surprise though.


You haven't seen the screens they've been releasing of this game have you, I'd be more surprised if they said there was AA!

Well
1) you don't have to quote me 3 times (and counting)
2)  I have seen them (and the lack of AA was really visible), but AFAIR they were also a much higher resolution as 720p (probably upscaled), so I didn't take them thaaat serious.
3) lastly that comment showed my surprise in general. 720p and 60FPS with AA existed already on PS3 and 360 (Forza + GT for example). So I either expected 1080p no AA or 720p with AA.


Oops! I blame vgc, it wasn't loading so I kept hitting submit. Gaf was loading though. Gaf > vgc confirmed.

That makes literally no sense :P



Shame, but then again it doesn't really matter.

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

Oh I'm always trying to downplay Nintendo, so that's the reputation I've build for myself, I'm honored. I didn't know that facing reality and pointing it out equals downplaying but great.

So tell me, what am I downplaying here? Did I ever say anything about the graphic fidelity of MK? Did I come in here and say that the game looks bad? Or that the game's going to be bad?

No, what I commented on is the hypocrisy of people saying that "nobody cares" and that we shouldn't discuss this, cause nobody said something like that when the game was still rumoured to be 1080p.



I don't know if most posts are sarcastic or not (some I know are sarcastic beacuse of the poster) but damn... I'm glad Nintendo doesn't listen to the internet



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)
