that sounds like the same type of idiot that keeps animated shows and movies as automatically perceived as "kiddie" in the year 2014. Which is about as ancient an opinion at this point as thinking the Earth is flat.

Compared to what?

Didn't ask. But this is the same guy that said Mario Kart Wii was god awful compared to LittleBigPlant Racing...
He's just hating blindly. I know i can be a bit of a nintendo snob 'these days' but i've owned everything from the genesis, game gear, saturn, dreamcast, PS1(ect) outside of Nintendo throughout the years and i'm now looking to get an Atari 2600 & PS2. it's safe to say that i've given other consoles quite a fair shake up until the XBOX 360 and PS3.

This, i cannot stand. Yet it's pretty common with tweenagers these days. Heck, i've heard the same thing from a couple of my uncles, even my mother at one point. "Grow up, cartoons are for children" LMAO, i've been drawing since i was 3 years old, i'm an artist.....What cartoonist for example doesn't enjoy cartoons? it comes with the bloody territory for crying out loud, otherwise they wouldn't be pursuing that passion & career.lol

My mom's side of the family are old OLD school though and are oblivious to the film and gaming industry. This particular friend of mind however doesn't think this way, he just can't seem to fathom nintendo doing anything good. He's also never played an NES, N64(outside of hating mario 64 and Zelda OOT), GCN, Wii, GB, GBA, DS or 3DS game in his life. He only gushes over his select nostalgia SNES trips, with Super Mario World, Zelda ALTTP and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts(ect) but he wont even bother playing anything else from these franchises, let alone on the SNES these days. not much of a gamer at all really. He talks more about console sales which i find infuriating....Continuously taking jabs at how poor the Wii U is selling. Now, the gamecube(discounting the dreamcast) sold the least out of it's generation yet i enjoyed it the most because the majority of it's games Vs the other two consoles appealed to me a lot more.

Sales don't determine how much fun i have with a game/system.. The Wii U as of now seems to have a lot of wonderful 1st party offerings and innovative gamepad to back it up, it's doing piss poor in sales but i'd glady take it over the PS4 and XBOX One for the same exact reason i mentioned above about the gamecube.

Ask him to point out the game he thinks has the best art direction out of these the next time you see him:
Karting game Comparison

If he answers anything other than Sega & Sonic: ASRT or Mario Kart 8 he is a lost cause :c

It wouldn't matter, Ratchet & Clank and LBP Racing are sony exclusives, there for they win. I rarely ever bring up video games whenever we talk because the amount of absurd pixel poop that comes out of his mouth would make any true gamer cringe beyond belief. :P

I was appauled by his Wind Waker HD hating, complaining about how ugly, bland and empty the visuals look. I for one think it looks gorgeous, Nintendo are top class and unparalleled when it comes to sheer art direction. It's a beaut' ;) I shouldn't get too worked up though, this is coming from the same guy who plays nothing but Online Battlefield whenever he has the spare time to game.

Anyways! I'm finally going to play Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS tomorrow, a little late as always and always one massive step behind. But eh, better late than never. :P

I don't like it when people say Nintendo Is for kids. It's just like MLP and BRONYS. You can love or like anything. It doesn't matter if their games are marketed for kids. You can still be a Nintendo Fan.

Hhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.

Apparently the local multiplayer looks a bit different in this version. Screens aren't shared horizontally anymore;

Well of course, it makes sense. Mario Kart Wii was the last Kart game where it was reasonable to expect that a fair chunk of people would be playing it on 4:3 screens. A vertical split doesn't make sense at 4:3 because that sort of extreme vertical view looks odd. The Wii U bundles with HDMI cables and is build for HD gaming. At this point there's no reason for them to keep 4:3 screen owners happy.

I just learned that Toad's Factory wasn't in this game after all. Since the February Direct I always thought it was because of a screenshot that really reminded me of it, but it wasn't it. So there's only one unknown retro track left. I say it's either a retro Bowser's Castle or a fourth 3DS track.

What are some of the characters left, you would still like to see included? With the character roster already at 27, I think a few inclusions like, Bower Jr, Kamek, Birdo, and Diddy Kong would round out the list nicely.

Please don't say a retro Bowser Track. Wario Colosseum is a perfect choice for an anti-gravity track.

A few more obscure characters wold be great, such as E. Gadd, or Wart.

Does anyone think Retro will get to design another DK track? The one that did for Mario Kart 7 was great, and a Tropical Freeze track would be (and look!) amazing. Especially if David Wise composed the music for it!

That's assuming we trust GameExplain's reading destinations in Sunshine Airport. And that those are indeed retro tracks.

I hope someone uses that video as proof that this is a bigger leap in graphics than other game consoles.

yes I am suggesting someone will use N64 to Wii U to try to prove Wii U is better because it's a bigger jump than PS3 to Ps4.

Wart would actually be a good throwback.
