I’m on record as a big fan of those on-court and on-ice projection systems proliferating throughout our nation’s arenas, but Tampa might have achieved apotheosis.
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron race Conan O’Brien in Mario Kart 8, with the loser getting covered in weenies.
Shrinking characters, enlarging the ball or throwing out banana peels sure would spice up Rocket League’s already intense gameplay.
It’s been twelve years since F-Zero Climax. That’s over a decade that Captain Falcon has been falcon punching and thrusting away—in a less savoury fashion—on the Super Smash Bros. stage without so much as thinking of the Blue Falcon. Although it’s been a joy seeing his (fantastic) legs far more since he traded in the…
I recently listened to someone explain why they felt no guilt about hacking Mario Kart so that they could cheat in it. “Morality holds progress back,” he said.
Please note that this isn’t a real game. It’s a joke video. But deep down you knew that already, because 101 racers on a Mario Kart track would leave us in a world without friendship.
This isn’t some quick, cheap piece of machinima. This is a very impressive animated short that basically throws the cast of Mario Kart into Star Wars fighters and lets them go at it.
Luigi on an electric longboard and a city turned into a Mario Kart course full of dangerous elements. The folks at CorridorDigital made a pretty neat live-action short film about Luigi trying to beat Mario’s time trial score.

Rosalina: “What are you smiling about?” Mii: “Dude, I almost had you.” Rosalina: “You almost had me? You never had me. You never had your kart.” Awesome GIF via the Mario Kart subreddit.
This past year has been something for Nintendo. Not only did we get the greatest iteration of their biggest franchises, we also got fresh takes and unlikely second chances for existing characters. Nintendo even graced us with a few fresh IPs. Their latest, Splatoon, has become a classic overnight, with fans drooling…
On today’s episode of Highlight Reel we have weird horses, weird soldiers, defuses, close finishes and much more!
This is so good.
“It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile,” Dominic Toretto famously said at the beginning of The Fast and the Furious, “Winning’s winning.” Well let me ask you this, Dom: have you ever played Mario Kart?
Oh, what a lovely day.
Among the many, many things that Mario Kart 8’s new super-ultra-mega-fast 200CC mode changes are the shortcuts every course has. Now they’re a lot easier to speed through—as long as you don’t run into a wall first.
The finish line is just a few feet away. You can practically reach out and touch it—feel the sturdy grasp of victory in your own two hands. And then you collide with a giant, immovable piece of metal.
The above image gives a marvelous view of Mario Kart 8 racetrack Music Park. It’s also a screenshot the player shouldn’t have been able to capture.
