I could go preorder it at GameStop or something, but at this point I don't want to go out and pre-order it again. I'm pretty sure I'm safe just rushing out to the stores anyways

Yeah, don't pre-order from Gamestop.

Recently, they've been cheating me quite a bit. They used to take $5 for pre-ordering a game, and you really wouldn't have to end up paying tax (since the $5 they ask for pretty much goes to tax). That was before. Now, they want $5 for the initial pre-order, plus tax, which is bull crap for me since I'm poor as hell. You could just end up paying tax without the pre-order, but adding $5 extra dollars for "getting it early" is nonsense.

Also, if you download games off the eShop, you can avoid tax altogether by changing your zip code.
Just pay straight 59.99. No tax.
I highly recommend downloading it instead.

Hold on though! If you wan't to still get a free game, but you're downloading Mario Kart 8, you gotta have a Club Nintendo account linked to your Nintendo Network ID. Otherwise, it might not automatically register and you won't be able to get a free game.

The only downside to downloading games is that it'll take a while. Plus, just like the CD form, it might require updates.

There is no way I'm downloading it. I'm the kind of guy that always wants a case. Plus, my NNID is on my brothers Wii U, because we don't have a family Wii U yet. So when my brother moves out he's taking his Wii U with him, and I don't want to lose any of my eShop purchases when I switch my NNID over to a new Wii U.

You know, before I thought of switching to digital, I considered the fact that I might wan't to bring it to other people's Wii U's and play there... but then I decided that wasn't important because I don't have friends anymore. Looks like I'm staying solo in gaming from now on.

So apparently, DK is excluded from the "Super Heavy" category, but Wario's in it... Nintendo I don't even....

So it seems Rosalina got bumped up from "Cruiser" to "Heavy".
Maybe she uses gravity to make herself heavier? Maybe she got taller? or she got fat :P

Even Metal has its own category... -_-

The first review of Mario Kart 8; this one by a German magazine named GamePro that gave it a score of 90%

  • 30 characters
  • Coins being used to buy new Kart parts
  • Music and graphics are amazing @ 60fps
  • More than 2 players = 30fps
  • Battle mode (balloons) only on regular tracks! No arenas!
  • New and old tracks are fantastic!
  • Blue shells are way too common (the editor wrote that he sometimes got 3-4 hits within one race)
  • Online play could not be tested (no servers online)

@DestinyMan Interesting that they said blue shells were too common, when Andre of GameXplain told us they were kinda rare. Not that it's a big deal, when you can vaguely customize item rates.

1. You can actually "buy" new Kart parts? That's new to me... lol
2. He was pretty unlucky. I think Blue Shells are handled as in MKWii.
There are races where I don't see a single one and on another at last 1 each lap.
3. I thought the severs are already up? At last GameXplain for example could play online. if I'm not totally mistaken.

Seems like the Worldwide mode isn't ready... but Andre played against Nintendaan who is in the Netherlands...

As soon as I read "GamePro" I was like; oh no, not them! lol :P
Their reviews are pretty strange generally. Maybe not bad, but strange.

Fore example they said Donkey Kong TF music reminds them of elevator music. facepalm

BTW I think there will be a demo of this coming out soon :) If you do the pre register thing on club nintendo, it asks how you found out about mario kart and the first box says a demo. It could be one released the day it comes out but in any case there definitely will be one :)

Although, they could mean demos from E3 and such but yes, an eShop demo just before release would be nice.

A demo would definitely be welcome, even though Nintendo doesn't need to convince me anymore after my sister pre-ordered Mario Kart 8 at Target and got us Mario Kart keychains!
