Re: Mario Kart 8

Seriously though, Mr. Scooty is the best vehicle in the entire game. I say that only because of the name.
It's impossible for me to say it without smiling.

Re: Mario Kart 8

Been enjoying MK8 a lot so far, and got through all the 50cc tracks. The rubber band-effect is still the most annoying thing in this game. Three races in a row I got taken out by a red or blue shell right before the finish line and had 1st place stolen from me.

Yeah, you know it's bad when that's happening in 50cc. >.<

The AI and items (even green shells) are vicious in this game. I can't tell you how many times I have given up an entire race lead in 150cc because I got hit by a shell or lightning bolt right over a pit at the very end of the race. >.>

But... it's Mario Kart, the frustration is part of the fun in the end. =P

The game actually feels a lot more balanced than Wii to me. My roommate and I (with other friends occassionally jumping in) just finished gold medaling every Grand Prix on all 4 difficulties, and only on 150cc/Mirror did we really run into rubber banding problems. Even there we did it to CPUs as much as they did it to us.

That said, it took about a day for me to adjust to the drifting mechanics. I was getting crushed on launch day, but I'm pretty much back to playing at my usual MK level now. I love the new tracks, the game is gorgeous, and the composer deserves a raise. The only problem I have is Battle mode sucks.

Re: Mario Kart 8




I haven't heard of any kind of foul ups. And normally if there were problems the internet would have been all over it complaining. Mario Kart Wii was similar in its online mode quality. I'm hoping really damned hard that Smash Bros. can offer a similar experience.

Re: Mario Kart 8

toad + standard quad + slim tires

BEST

i'll prob replace them with circuit special and slick tires once i get enough coins on my wiiu user profile (played with my boyfriend's until i made my own)

150cc AI is annoying as balls but the game itself is super fun and great and i love it

Yeah I'm mad about that since NA only had four games to choose from. Granted I'm glad I finally got NSMBU but more choice would've been nice.

Anyways been havin' fun. Workin' on 150cc now cause I want dat Gold Standard kart body.

Re: Mario Kart 8

Has anyone found a Kart combination that seems good? I'm currently riding the Mr Scooty with Sponge wheels. I love the handling but I wouldn't mind a little more speed.

I'm using the Sports Bike with the roller wheels ( or whatever the tiny red ones are called) with a medium/large character to get a little speed on top of my crazy acceleration and handling.

Re: Mario Kart 8

i changed mine from toad to a new setup and suddenly i won everything

rosalina + scooty + slims + whichever of the lighter gliders
grip is not optimal but i love driving like that

i also got my gold kart just a minute ago (<3) and when i was fooling around with customization i noticed that a light heavy character (rosalina, waluigi, dk or roy), gold kart/coupe/circuit special/mach 8 and rollers seems nicely balanced too with a great spike in overall speed

i guess i should start online racing now
