I haven't played a Mario Kart game since n64, but I am willing to give this one a try since it's in HD and I like my Wii U/gamepad. How about you, SW? It currently has 89% metacritic score, which is good, but does fall short of the massive hype and marketing it had. http://www.metacritic.com/game/wii-u/mario-kart-8

Same response I put in your other thread that got locked.

I will probably eventually.

Not paying 64.99$ + taxes ~75$ for a single game

#4 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9627 posts) -

I don't have a Wii-U, so no.

#5 Posted by aroxx_ab (10065 posts) -

Didnt care much of the previous 7 Mario Kart games...this game is no different

#6 Edited by Ballroompirate (23030 posts) -

I have better games to play.

#7 Edited by PhazonBlazer (11916 posts) -

Not me, gotta save my money for a PS4.

I'll get it sometime though.

#8 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34157 posts) -

I certainly will get it along with some free HD Wind Waker goodness.

My copy has been shipped out and will be here tomorrow morning. :D

#10 Edited by GoldenElementXL (3293 posts) -

I am! I have been waiting for this day for a long time. My other consoles aren't gonna get much attention for a while.

#11 Posted by bobbetybob (19290 posts) -

Already got it and it's so much fun. I'm looking forward to playing it some more which is more than I can say for most of the games I've played recently. Maybe my tastes are changing but a lot of recent games have been uninteresting slogs and it's nice to just have something light but competitive to jump into and have some fun for an hour.

LOL no.

#15 Edited by darkspineslayer (19766 posts) -

Shipped out, but i was too cheap for priority. It will get here when it gets here.

#16 Posted by cfisher2833 (1709 posts) -

I would if I had a WiiU. Game looks ridiculously fun.

You can do it, get the Wii U!

#19 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3611 posts) -

Can't wait to play this awesome game.

#20 Edited by Zassimick (6640 posts) -

Yes.

#21 Posted by iambatman7986 (485 posts) -

Me with windwaker. Can't wait.

#22 Posted by cainetao11 (17708 posts) -

Me. Since some cows (they know who they are) champion a platform they don't own, I will too.

#23 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7323 posts) -

@cainetao11: LOL. WiiBox1 ftw

#24 Posted by Xaero_Gravity (8761 posts) -

So who's up for a Mario Kart 8 Game Night tomorrow?

#25 Edited by millerlight89 (18564 posts) -

I'll wait until it is cheap. I got more interesting games to play.

I probably will once a new Zelda comes out. If a new Metroid Prime comes out and it's as good as the old ones, I'll HAVE to pick it up.

#27 Posted by Slashkice (13232 posts) -

I'm not. I was considering picking up the bundle, but I bought an iPhone instead.

You're going to wait for a while

nintendo games are not worth full price. they are good arcade titles that u play when u are bored of everything else but i wouldnt play full price of them.

That's probably the most laughable thing I've EVER read on these forums and I've been here since 2001. Nintendo games are made to last and they are one of the few companies that produces titles that aren't over after a couple of hours.

But I guess...

Same.

#33 Posted by WitIsWisdom (3801 posts) -

Yes. Pikmin 3 as well. Tomorrow will be a fun day.

#34 Edited by lamprey263 (24166 posts) -

I needed to make a Walmart run, I'm thinking of going at midnight so I can get it... otherwise, I'm in no rush really, I got a backlog of stuff to finish.

I don't know what I'm going to do with my free game download, already have Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, and New Super Mario/Luigi U on disc, and no way I'm getting Wii U Party. Maybe I'll randomly post the redeem code for someone else to redeem.

@SolidGame_basic: Not me. I bought my Wii U at launch (I own two) but I don't like racing games. I will buy this for $20 a year or two from now. I'm in no rush and I may never buy it all generation. I own all the other Mario Kart games, but this franchise is just not for me.

hahahahaha. A Nintendo game for $20 in two years? Yeah right. It'll still be full price.

On topic though, I have it pre-ordered and will pick it up tomorrow. I'm also excited about getting Pikmin 3 free with it. Can't wait!

#38 Edited by Maddie_Larkin (6561 posts) -

Yup, bought allready, the notion that you get another free game of your choice with it is hard to pass up on to begin with (not to mention that MK8 is cheaper then alot of those titles), and that me and the gf have something to play together. Simply makes it a hard game to pass up on.

#39 Posted by BloodyTides (151 posts) -

Ah mario kart haven't played that in years too bad I might not get the Wii U for a while

#40 Edited by Opus_Rea-333 (987 posts) -

Knowing this game exist levels up my adrenaline.

#41 Posted by quatoe (5682 posts) -

I wish I could pick it up tomorrow. Unfortunately I will have to wait until I get some cash for the heavenly and holy goodness this game will bring.

#42 Posted by Glutenbob (249 posts) -

yup, with Pikmin 3. This is seriously one of the better deals in gaming. A new mario kart + an amazing Nintendo exclusive..cmon cuhhhhh

#43 Posted by ChubbyGuy40 (26185 posts) -

Picking it up around lunch time tomorrow. Can't wait!

#44 Edited by Pffrbt (6565 posts) -

Yes, can't wait.

#45 Posted by mario-galaxys (614 posts) -

I already pre-ordered the game months ago and should arrive in the mail sometime early next week.

#46 Posted by Basinboy (11230 posts) -

Here. Chose to hold off on Watch Dogs until A) the PC version gets straightened out and B) possibly a price drop. Not convinced it's a game I have to play right this second, plus sequels are inevitable.

Also getting Pikmin 3 cause why not?

#47 Edited by Zassimick (6640 posts) -

Picked up the game, popped it in and enjoyed my first Grand Prix. Looked over to my fiancé in the middle of the first race and just said, "Wow, it [Mario Kart] has never felt this smooth." She proceeded to respond with, "That's what she said!"

Seriously, the racing feels absolutely perfect. Shifting perspectives with the gravity wasn't too off-putting when I just looked at the kart, but then I took a look at the environment and then bumped into another racer and that's when things were crazy. Also, at the end of the Grand Prix there was a highlight reel with my best moments in all four races. I don't know how they did it, but it was great seeing a near fall off a ledge and a perfect hit against Toad who was in first place with a green shell. Brought a smile to my face.

And the music is stunning and visuals are terrific. Can't wait to wake up and play more in the morning! :P

EDIT: Also downloading Pikmin 3 as we speak. Great promotion, and they asked about whether or not the promotion was part of the reason you purchased Mario Kart 8 in the Club Nintendo survey. Could we see more deals like this in the future or is this a one-time thing?

#48 Edited by ConanTheStoner (5607 posts) -

Getting it just because the free game. Not that I don't think MK8 will be good, I just know I'll always be playing it at a friends house anyways.

#49 Edited by santoron (7774 posts) -

Nope, but congrats to all that do! Nothing's better than finally getting to play a long awaited game.

#50 Posted by 93BlackHawk93 (5638 posts) -

I'll get it earlier because of the free game deal.
