I recall the demo versions of Mario Kart 7 also only having two laps.
The final game will have three laps for sure.

Looks like Snaking is back!

Go to 3:40, and you'll see him try it again later on in the video. It looks faster, but I don't know for sure. :/

I'm not sure if that means 'snaking' is truly back. After all, you could technically 'snake' in Wii and 7, it's just it wasn't fast enough to make a difference:

I'm skeptical that what we saw there was effective enough to actually be useful. Especially if the demo is only 100cc like is rumoured...

It's not. I played the demo yesterday and the drifting is almost exactly like the drifting in Mario Kart 7. Since you can't snake in Mario Kart 7, it's pretty safe to say you can't in Mario Kart 8. I used to snake in Double Dash (for time trials) and Mario Kart DS (for online when it was impossible to win otherwise), so I have some experience with it and it just doesn't seem possible, which is a GOOD thing. The game handles very similarly to Mario Kart 7. On the bikes, you can no longer wheelie (at least I wasn't able to), and the bikes that I used did NOT drift inward...which was one thing I liked about the bikes in Mario Kart Wii.

tl;dr MK8 is very similar to MK7 in terms of drifting and handling. Since you can't snake in MK7, you can't snake in MK8 (unless you use the term VERY very loosely...you can but it's not faster)

Im glad that the coin mechanic is back and wasnt some gimmick that MK7 tried to utilize (yes Im aware that this was implemented in previous installments). u_u

I have low expectations for this one. I doubt it will be worth the wait.

Game looks amazing. What a next-gen Kart should look like.

It reminds me of when Sega picked F-Zero up.

I just hope everything outside of looks comes good.

Mario Kart 8 looks like a blast, I'm really looking forward to it coming out. I heard though that the blue shell might be out now witch saddens me deeply, it's like a long time friend moving away. The fire flower looks brutal though now, its super accurate, at least when you're not going upside down while turning. I got some footage of the game at the E3 Best Buy demo's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLHc20VraZc

So Nintendo has gotten in the habit of using last gen controls? Sweet, I liked the Wii wheel style of driving! :O

It's funny how the character roster for Mario Kart 8 is already better than Mario Kart 7's.

Waluigi is back in, so the roster is automatically better then 7's. u_u

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.

Now they just need to bring back Diddy (and maybe even add Dixie since she's back in DKC:TF) and the roster would be shaping up well.

I just had a thought....A most wonderful thought.

If they get the Combat Maps correct, we could see some brilliantly interesting courses to Balloon Battle on.
