Part of Team CVG was worried we'd play the new game for a few days before reverting back to our old N64 habits. The other bit couldn't bare that thought that that actually might happen.
Needless to say, it was a tense first session on the Wii version. Lots of looks at each other over the easier handling mechanic. Eyebrows raised over fake power-ups not blocking incoming shells. The cheesiness of the stunts. And then the unthinkable. Someone (bloody Andy) went and picked a bike. The peace was about to be shattered.
Almost a week later and we're proud to say that we DO like change and we WON'T be going back to play Mario Kart 64 anytime soon. But shall we ban bikes from office sessions?"
