So my question about Battle Mode is this: are the big, free-roaming stages from past Mario Kart games gone? Because if they are, that would be a shame. I like that Nintendo mixed up the Battle Mode to try something new with something that's basically Battle Races, but I would think the classic big stages like N64 Double Decker and Wii Funky Stadium would be awesome to play in Mario Kart 8, especially with online playing such a huge, crucial role.

Well, there are no laps, so it isn't a battle "race" per say, but you are battling on the entire track. Since Nintendo removed Battle Stages entirely, it might be a big disappointment to some, but for me I think I can get used to it.

Battle mode will have "Battle Tracks", no more "Battle Stages".

Because adding the @ sign notifies/replies/sends a message to the person saying what you wrote. I just thought you'd want him to know what you wrote.
That's all.

EDIT: Wait a minute, did auto-correct did that for you? Well that explains it... I got a sucky phone too, so I don't blame ya.

This game looks absolutely spectacular. There's not a single thing about this latest reveal (aside from the roster) that I didn't love. I can't believe we're so lucky! The minor disappointment that is the roster is made up for 100$ by absolutely everything else about this game. Also, I'm totez downloading Windwaker HD with this game. Also, getting this game day 1! God, I can't wait! Just one more month! The excitement is too instense.

On a side note, there's still hope for the roster to grow. Maybe they haven't truly revealed everything the roster has to offer. I really hope they haven't. This is gonna be great!

The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.

well... it's official. I won't play this game because it will ruin my finals.. My last final is 10 June so... this is kinda painful. I already ordered it so I'm gonna receive it on 30 May anyway but I'm gonna tell my brother to just lock it away. I can't take this risk, it's my absolutely final year at university and I already have 2 jobs during summer vacation, so no time for resits lol.

The next 31 days are going to be the biggest drag in my entire life. My hype has now gotten to the point where if the holiday I plan on taking coincides with MK8 releasing, I will delay it into June! (maybe mid June, don't want to miss E3 either!)

Well, this has been a wonderful morning! I am excited to play as Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach (or Metal Peach as I am going to call her). Bring on May 30th!

I was watching the Direct with my kids, and my daughter also got very excited about Pink Gold Peach.

I am disappointed by the Direct. Baby Rosalina and Golden Peach are complete throw-away characters, and if there aren't any additional unlockable characters past the 30 we've seen in the Direct, this will be the worst Mario Kart roster in terms of what the power of the system could provide. The Koopalings are OK, but are no replacement for characters like Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr., or even King Boo.

The Crazy 8 is just a lazy re-hash of the Lucky 7 with a coin stuck on. And the fact that coins can now be gotten from Item Boxes will just add more randomness to the game by making stuff like bananas and shells to block items harder to get to block other items. It will be even harder now to hold a lead than what it is currently. The Horn is OK, but depending on the places you can get it in the race, the higher it is, the more overpowered it will be. If you can get it at any place above 6th, it will be just as annoying as the Blue Shell.

And the layout of the Direct itself (at least the UK one) was just so childish, boring and patronising. There was a lot of good things that we saw, like the online modes, the track designs, the phenomenal music, but overall the Direct has dampened my expectations of the game. Even though I will still be getting it at launch, I'm not as excitied for it anymore, and frankly I'm looking forward to my free copy of Monster Hunter more.

I agree!!!! This is the best Bowser's Castle I've ever seen!

I'm pretty sure that this game is gonna be the killer app for the Wii U. But there's only one thing I didn't get, does this game make use of the gamepad?

my 3ds friend code is 1461-7634-1658

creativity is the insane possibility.

man, this is the closest Nintendo is trying to do for the mass appeal and you're still not satisfied?

Granted the presentation of the direct is a little cheesy but it still announced the good stuff and its kind of funny at times.
