Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

This game looks to have the best graphics on Wii U so far.

after watching the gameplay video in HD and checking out the screenshots i feel that the Big N is close to reaching a mute point as far as graphics are concerned for their cartoony based franchises. Mario kart 8 is jaw dropping, and it's running in 60fps....

The next graphical leap will be getting their character models to look simular to that Super Smash Bros CG.cutscene mega man unviel trailer where Mega man's using metal man's weapon against Mario and Link or those beautiful CG pikmen 3 screen shots. And that's basically it, no need to go further when it comes to Donkey Kong, Mario, Kirby and what have you. Zelda & Metroid are a different story if Nintendo was aiming for a more realistic look.

If Mario Kart 8 is running 60 FPS at 1080p, then I think Wii U will be fine visually.

Looks good but nothing more, anti gravity is a gimmick, same as bikes,
where this needs to shine is in its features:

  • online modes
  • tournaments
  • track editor
  • cart editor
  • voice chat

things like that,
but I have a feeling that most of them will be a letdown.

No regrets.

You're expecting stuff that most likely won't happen. We've seen one trailer and the game doesn't come out 'til 2014. At least have a little bit of hope and instead of expecting what you want; just expect it to a great game.

This is one of my most anticipated games which I really didn't expect it to be. It looks very solid and polished and ofcourse just really fun.
It may be so because I haven't played a mario kart since double dash anymore. So I'm really eager to play it.

Nah, the last thing I want to see is the game rushed and turn out bad. SSB4 is getting a 2014 release. Also, I dont have a Wii U yet but these two titles want me to change that. :O

The last thing Nintendo needs is more people not buying their console because they haven't released enough good games for it in its first year.

I doubt Nintendo wants to rush the game to a 2013 date. Release the games and assuming they turn out mediocre, get universally bad reviews either.

I'm glad it's being released in 2014. I want this game to be as good as it can be.

I liked Mario Kart 7 but it felt very uninspired and rushed to me.

I believe in make believe~

Errr, this has probably been mentioned before, but is this haunted house track a potential Luigi's Mansion 2 reference?

Untitled

The suit of armour with the hammer, the generally gloomy art style, it just makes me think of Dark Moon for some reason. Is this potentially an Evershade Valley inspired track?

I saw this in motion at Best Buy, it's really impressive how smooth it is even in two player split screen.

I got to see Mario Kart 8 for the first time in person today at Best Buy, and it was definitely impressive, especially the Boo Mansion one. The colors and brightness really jump out!

I feel they focused almost too much on the online with MK7. Its a good thing that Nintendo isnt being stubborn anymore with online. But this isnt Call of Duty. The online isnt Nintendo's only selling point. >:3 @Emaan

For some reason I keep thinking he is referencing his absence in MK7. XD

I thought it looked and played pretty well. They did say that the demo was a fairly old build of the game. I kinda wish there was 3 laps. There was only 2 laps, because I think they figured the tracks were pretty big for what they were.
It will be fun.

Pretty sure they made the demo two laps to move people on. It's a kiosk demo built for E3, they want to get as many people to see the games as possible. It's not built for you to stand there for 30mins annoying everyone in the queue....

Anyways, after watching a few videos of the demo on youtube I've noticed a few things. For a start the tires on the karts look like they're made from really thick rubber... which sounds stupid for me to point out but it just seemed right somehow. Also the road when they've stopped looks fantastic, very high resolution textures going on. The animation is also looking pretty awesome. Better still the two player races I saw were running really smoothly which is a nice change for Mario Kart.

I really hope they can get four player running just as smoothly.... and I would assume that's most of what they'll be doing for the rest of the development time. Damn this game would have been awesome to have this year :(
