I think the biggest problem with the battle mode is the lack of a map.
If you could clearly see exactly where on the track everyone else was, then I don't think using tracks instead of arenas would really be an issue.

Well I guess also not being able to see the ghost characters at all seems a bit weird.
I don't mind the idea of the eliminated players still being able to drive around and take players down, but you should be able to at least clearly see them so you can actually defend yourself.

In that case, it isn't really an issue with Battle mode, but rather an issue with the game overall. This can be said because the only map in the entire game is on the Wii U GamePad (at least from videos, but I'll get some hands-on time myself here in a little bit).

Well, it's not as much of an issue in races because your goal there is to keep driving forward and reach the finish line rather than actively seeking out players by driving in any direction.
Would still be nice to have an optional map on the main screen during races too though.

So my experience with this game wasn't that bad. When you're about to hold an item behind your vehicle, it feels a little unresponsive. In other words, it takes a while for the item to show up behind your vehicle.

Also, at first I thought Pink Gold Peach might not be as good as I thought, but it turns out that she's better than I expected. That's pretty surprising for me.
I love Rosalina, but I might end up using Pink Gold Peach more often.

It feels weird that Mario Kart is so close but I will be able to go on Vacation and come back before it is out

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Well, looks like some people will always find some pointless thing to whine about:

Yeah, the guy he mocks goes complaining about freaking social justice crap and 'diversity' in the Mario Kart cast. Because hey, whining about it in Tomodachi Life wasn't annoying enough, now we've got people whining about games like Mario Kart 8 instead.

@DestinyMan You forgot to mention that Rosalina's voice is downright terrible.
After I won a race with her, she goes: "Oh Yeah! Winner!"
It may not seem like much typed out, but when you hear her say it, you may cringe if you're a Rosalina fan.

@DestinyMan I played as Baby Rosalina in the demo (as well as all the other ones I wanted to).
She has that echo effect Rosalina normally has, but that's the weird part. Rosalina has no echo effect, but her baby counterpart does...
Makes no sense. She sounds cute though.

I'm going to miss all the speculation, excitement, and rumors once this game arrives on the 30th. This is a huge thread, and it really kept the hype going for me. Guess we'll all be back to hype up Mario Kart 9.

Wait I got a question, since I'm hearing that the characters got new voice samples, did every character get new voice samples or are some the same from previous games?

UPDATE: Bowser just ate some cake and it was yummy

I recall that there are some re-used voice clips from previous games but the majority of them seem to be new for this game.

Yep. That seems to be the case. After all, they made everything from scratch.

After @DestinyMan nonetheless, I've gotten back from GameStop with enough information and playtime (about 3 pages full/1 hour of playing) to write a whole essay. So, I ask you guys, do you want me to write a short essay about my first impressions? In the meantime, though, I'll give a 3-sentence tl;dr version:

Mario Kart 8 is an extremely awesome game, that may just be the saving force for the Wii U. From the "Press A" screen, you can tell that this is going to be amazing. The characters, music, track design, and overall polish combine to make this the very best Wii U game, at least two times better than Super Mario 3D World.
