Isn't the super horn really rare though? That's what I heard at least.

Probably has the same rarity as the blue shell. Will come down to timing/conservation of the super horn

I'm curious as to what place you have to be in to get it too. I can't imagine it being a 1st place item

I've seen some videos where right on the 1st lap, CPU's get the Super Horn pretty early. I personally think the Super Horn isn't as rare as Nintendo makes it out to be. It's possible to get it in 1st place too.

Well in the Nintendo's facebook they say that Super Horn is more common in the first places.

The full idea of it is to avoid the blue shell.

GameXplain says they've gotten it in first place and they've also said that it's uncommon, but not rare. Saying they got it a few times, but considering how many races they went through, it seemed like you couldn't really just hope to get it.

Wow. Kinda surprised to see the Mario Kart 8 reviews have just gone up. Fairly predictable (but good) score.

But anyone wanna explain to me the logic of having the reviews come out 2 weeks before the game? I can understand 1 week before. Let people see the high scores and then get ready to go and buy it. But 2 weeks? Some people might see the high score and have their attention grabbed by something next week instead.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Easier to build up preorders if people are on the fence? OTOH, that strategy would only work if they are sure that the reviews are going to be generally favorable.

There has been a couple of 10's so far as well and 2 98's I believe. The lowest I've seen is the 75 from NWR.

Edit: Sorry one 9.8 and another 9.6.

I think when a publisher puts out review copies early it shows they are confident in the quality of their game. I have always been suspicious of games that are reviewed on or after the date of release.

The reviews are pouring in!!!! This game is epic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Joshers744 I always go to that website, but music uploaded for MK8 isn't really complete in many aspects.
There's issues with audio quality uploads, cuts in loops / incorrect looping, and most of the songs haven't been completely played to the end (which results in short-looped songs), like Dolphin Shoals.

@Rosalina yeah I figured it wasn't quite 100 percent yet. I still enjoyed getting an idea of what some of the songs will be like. I love the new version of Mario Circuit GBA.

@Zatoichi

Some outlets don't get review copies so there reviews would be out after the game is released. You also have guys who like to put reviews out the day of or before to get maximum hype for a purchase.

WAT!

Hey check out my awesome new youtube channel shingi70 where I update weekly on the latest gaming and comic news form a level headed perspective.

People shouldn't look at scores. It's weird and stupid. Just experience the game for yourself and judge accordingly.
I bet you never knew the scores of the games you played when you were young, some of which were great games.
