I already have a Wii U, but I did buy it in preparation for Mario Kart VIII. Mario Kart Wii is my fave game for that system and one of all time, and plus with the online shutting down in MKWii then I have to switch to a new online Mario Kart. The only reason I bought early though was from winning money at a casino, else I'd have waited and bought the MK bundle. I figured it was a good idea to get it when I had the extra cash and play the few other games I wanted in the mean time.

I do have feelings of regret sometimes, but hopefully that'll stop after the game finally gets here.

So is this the default Mario Kart 8 thread? I'm not seeing one in this forum...anyway, it comes out in 32 minutes. It's only 5GB, so a download shouldn't take that long...hopefully. Thought about buying the disc (WalMart a couple of miles away), but this is one of those games that you never get rid of, plus for some reason I have $10.01 in eShop credit...and then the whole 5% back deal.

Against my better judgement I'll get a physical copy of the game in the morning. I am really looking forward to playing online since I rarely get the chance with other games. This might just be the summer of Mario Kart for me. That and Pikmin 3 when I download it.

Jealousy.

In anticipation for MK8 I've been going through my backlog and making no progress on it. Still haven't finished Need for Speed, re-started W101 after an aborted start a few months ago and stared at the AC4 Black Flag title screen for a while before deciding to play some Yoshi's Island.

I can't wait to play this.

I started one back when it was announced for E3. However, I'm not possessive of the conversation and don't care if you want to use this thread or start another or if you want to bump it to "keep the conversation" in the "correct thread". I'm about thread creation and proliferation not consolidation even if a thread is only good for a couple posts. Listen to your heart.

Speaking of which, there's now a new stylus-based control method for Pikmin 3 that can be downloaded via patch, I believe.

I can't believe I'm the only person who has posted "I have Mario Kart 8" so far...school's out isn't it? Anyway, only played one race because it was 2:15am (download kept stopping, thanks Obama) but it is a beautiful game.

I have Mario Kart 8 as well. Love that you can do grand prix races with local players like all console Mario Karts except Wii.

Of course Club Nintendo basically does not work right now (can't finish process of "choosing" Pikmin 3)...

I read over at kotaku over a new technique being used by mario kart wii u players called fire hopping which supposedly can keep the drift boost going a little longer.

Yup. I started using the technique after hearing about it, too, and it has helped immensely with 150cc mode.
I like Nintendo more than j00!

I'll have to look into this... I'm all for countering the AI in any way I can.
