I played the demo at Gamestop and it was really fun!!! The only issue I had was that it was a little easy, but it was 100 cc so I can't complain.

UPDATE: Bowser just ate some cake and it was yummy

I'm dying for Mario Kart 8 already! X(

The Humble Bundle is doing daily sales. =D Keep an eye on that, because if you don't like the day's selection of games, come back tomorrow for another awesome deal. Heck, it seems like a lot of the daily deals are games that could probably run on a computer that isn't really intended for gaming. But maybe I'm wrong about that.

I'm also not sure if you're a PC gamer at all, so this may be a waste of a comment altogether. X3

@UGXwolf Pretty much agree on your take of the roster. I love the Koopalings and all, but if they really did have to replace some characters because of them, well it just doesn't seem right. Birdo, Dry Bones, and Diddy Kong to a lesser extent, are all Mario spin-off veterans. Why they aren't here makes little sense. And if we're bringing in more enemies like Shy Guy and Lakitu, why not other popular foes? A Hammer Bro or Kamek would fit in quite nicely. I'm all for the Koopalings' inclusion, but they shouldn't have to replace anyone to be there. Especially not series veterans who have basically become staple characters.

Pink Gold Peach seems like a random character to be put together for this game. She doesn't even exist, unlike Metal Mario. She's literally just a weight class change and (much more literally) a new paint job. Then again, so is Metal Mario, but he has actually appeared before in something other than Mario Kart. Therefore, his appearance feels more justified. Baby Rosalina makes much more sense despite also not existing until now. I still don't mind either one's inclusion really, but if some of the left out characters were still here it would annoy me less.

Beep.
That is all.

I think they should have made Baby Rosalina a little heavier than feather weight. That would make her different from the other babies and a viable option for people who like them but don't like their weight class.

Yeah I don’t know either.

So my local Gamestop put up a demo for this game Thursday Night, so I was one of the few people who got to play it before the demo weekend event, and let me just say it's awesome I can't wait to pick it up!

There's no such thing as bucks in Europe! It's Euro in most countries.

Full price, like other first party Wii U games (unless you bought Super Mario Kart off the eShop, then the price of SMK will be subtracted from MK8.)

I was watching the Dry Dry Desert video in the Mario Kart 8 website, and I noticed that your tires actually get dirty as you race along the track, and they get washed off when you go into the water! They spared no expense!

They also pick up snow on the snowy tracks. Check out Mt. Wario! By the way, your avatar is hilarious!

Is this only EU? And if not, am I too late??

Edit: just realized Super Mario Kart isn't even in the NA Wii U eShop = sad panda...

Dang. I was hoping it would be £40 like DKC:TF, then it would be worth it to pick up SMK, and the free game. I'm not paying £50 for digital only.

According to various websites, characters are randomly unlocked after beating a grand prix. Those characters are all of the koopalings, metal mario, gold peach, toadette, lukitu, and baby rosalina. Maybe a couple more, but I can't remember Also you can unlock a gold kart by beating all of the cups on all difficulties, and on mirror mode.

Check out my YouTube channel if you love gaming, and Nintendo (especially Metroid) I think you'll enjoy my videos. :)

I didn't even notice these things...details like this are making me so much more excited for the game(which I didn't think was possible). Only 10 more days!
