Prime members can preorder and save 20% on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for their Nintendo Switch, which isn’t unusual (that benefit applies to all preorder and new release games), but today’s the last day for most people to order if they want it on release day, so it warrants a reminder. As always, you won’t see the discount…
There might be another good reason to pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe—no more obnoxious post-boost hopping. According to a video from GameXplain, the contentious “fire-hopping” technique apparently didn’t make the trip from Wii U to Switch.
As someone who has turned a car into a video game controller before, I feel that I’m completely qualified to say that this is way better than the crude, 8-bit era hack I cobbled together to play Pole Position with a Lancia and an Atari. What Adam Ringwood and his friends did with a Chevrolet Volt and a tiny, cheap-ass…
We’ve got a long week ahead of us. So here’s Reinhardt from Overwatch joyriding down Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road. Thanks for lifting our spirits, Noilleber. (P.S. stick around for the video’s ending.)
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release on the Nintendo Switch. The updated version will include all WiiU DLC tracks as well as new characters. It will also add a revamped Battle Mode.
Built for speed and not exploration, racing games like Mario Kart like to keep players confined to a set track. Since developers always know what the player will be looking at, it’s easier to hide things away, until a YouTuber like Shesez starts using camera tricks to explore beyond track borders.
This weekend, the Tonight Show posted a video on YouTube in which host Jimmy Fallon challenged some of NASCAR’s best drivers to a game of Mario Kart. Ahead of today’s final Sprint Cup race of the season, Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Joey Logano went head-to-head to see who would face the Fallon in a…
Oh hey, it’s the Super Mario Kart development team in 1992. Lookin’ sharp, Mr. Very Young Tie Clip-Wearing Shigeru Miyamoto. Via Ninty Memories.
The Eastern Canadian Karting Championship is, if I’m not mistaken going by this video, secretly a Mario Kart recreation society.
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.
