The end of last week saw the arrival of EGX 2014, the UK's biggest gaming event and home to the 2014 Mario Kart 8 Championships — which Nintendo Life helped host.

Although the show saw a record attendance this year, sadly not everyone can have the chance to go along for the ride — so we've put together this handy gallery of our favourite bits. Be sure to also check out our more robust gallery on Facebook and keep an eye on the site for video coverage from the show in the coming days.
