Glad I have a Wii U so I can play games like this one but will definitely be interested in getting a PS4 as well!
Mario Kart will run at 60 frames ..I hope it is in 1080p..They need to make this the standard for all WIIU games.
Looks like some of the features they had in Diddy Kong racing back in the N64 days, looks pretty good! Maybe Ill buy a WiiU if this does well enough
Looks sick, always loved Mario Kart from the 64 days...don't buy Nintendo systems anymore though. =/
I really hope they keep the blue shell as an optional choice. in competitive play its a nuisance but when playing with friends its balances players of different skill and means that people in last place can affect the game in a funny way!
Please please please keep those damn blue shells out!!! Mario Kart's become a really unbalanced mess and extremely item and cart based. Mario Kart Wii really went overboard. On top of the blue shell, the lightning bolt, and the squid ink they added the POW block... so many cheesy mass items that just punish you to death for being a better racer. Even the bullet bill item... if you're going to allow something that's going to not only guide a cart safely along but rocket it past everyone then don't have it knock all the other carts that it comes in contact with 60 yards off road. A solid bump and spin out is plenty. I know plenty of others have experienced the agonizing frustration of trying to collect every first place trophy and actually being in first on a race only to get cheesed by three or four items in a row at the very end and finish at the tail end of the group because all you had to defend yourself with were banana peels.
So this is why TOM gave The Last Of Us an 8 because he loves these sort of games. Before people moan I'm also interested in this game and pretty much all games.
Mario Kart 7. Hit with blue shells 4 times in the same race. Threw 3DS at wall. Apologized to 3DS. Stopped playing Mario Kart 7. It made me hurt the things I love.
I hope the Blue Shell STAYS ABSENT. It's always been a very unbalancing factor in previous Mario Kart games. Otherwise, the game itself looks INCREDIBLE. Waiting until next year to play it is going to be quite painful though... :(
Mario Kart has to be considered the highlight of Nintendo's show. The only game that really looked "next gen" out of all their heavy hitters.
It appears they've implemented some sort of Windows Media Player menu into the gameplay. This might provide some interesting mechanics.
Best description of a game ever. I want that guy explaining all of the games. It's cute the way he tries!
@faneboogie They confirmed this which is awesome.
@horizonwriter or blue shells optional, I would like to see them back.
@horizonwriter i agree only with the blue shell but the other items are not problem. The ink was never a problem to me, the POW and lightning neather. I am ok with items that help the people that are behind (not just mushrooms) but not ok with just punish the one is winning the race.
@ChunkyDrawers They ride that rubber band pretty hard
@spank555 the problem with Tom is that he reviews not by what the game is but how the game he would like to be. That is why he gave Mario Galaxy a 10, Zelda SS 7.5, and the Last of us a 8.0
@spank555 I love games like The Last of Us as well. I like a wide variety of game.
@Vegamyster He has left M$.....everything looks and taste normal again lol
@USAPATRIOT21 Gameplay before graphics.
@hand4hire Like you don't laugh manically when you ruin someones day with one! :D
@Shadowmax889 Did he really give Zelda SS 7.5, never read that review on here. What a tool, i still can't get over the fact that Infamous 2 got 7.5 on this site and guess who reviewed that.
