[EGX2013] Mario Kart 8 Demo Hands-on | Dunham Gaming

This forthcoming title is the new ‘Mario Kart’ entry for the Wii U, as it features the best of its previous offerings and some anti-gravity racing. It’s going to be a long wait as this title will be released by spring 2014, but Dunham Gaming played it at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, so here are their early verdicts on this game. (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

i hope the paragliding is a button command because i really want to see the karts take some serious jumps and landings. why the heck would i want to paraglide all the time after a ramp ??? . hoping and wishing nintendo reads this comment.

I think they're still automatic. It's a shame, really, having the option between paragliding and not paragliding could make for some interesting strategies and shortcuts.

i dont like the flying, deep-sea diving or biking... its suppose to be mario KART.

although the roller coaster type tracks look good, it almost makes f zero redundant. why would nintendo do that. thats the whole point in having a difference between f zero and mario kart- they do different things.

it seems nintendo want to please everyone, but in the end will end up pleasing nobody.

it seems everything is a cost cutting exercise with nintendo nowadays, which is good for them, but not good for us if it comes at the expense of the gaming experience.

it seems instead of giving us two games, mario kart 8 and f zero, nintendo are creating a hybrid to satisfy all.

the same way at first wii sports seemed great, until you realise that is the model for every new nintendo title in the future- lump all the games in together in a mini-game collection.

so, instead of going all out to make a tennis game, or a jet ski game, or a game based around flying- just create half-assed mini games and put them all on one disk. win for nintendo, loss for us.

no next gen pilot wings, wave race, 'tennis game' etc... just these hybrid games (mini game collections)

Ummmmm Listen to yourself you want to bash a game that will probably be great because it's not a game that has one element. If you want to play a game that has you driving around flat surfaces why not just pick up forza or a game like that.

For one the gliding part will be due to the jumps having huge gaps.

The vehicles give you different options you don't need to drive a bike get a regular Kart.

This game is all about fun and one Nintendo has done is once again set the bar for the next rip offs of Kart gamings and just like with Mario 3D world this demo more than likely is not the final representation of the final game expect to see way more.

So what is funny about you is the way you form your comments. Not only do you frame them as though Nintendo is trying to screw everyone over and feed people games they don't want, but your best remedy to this "injustice" from Nintendo is to comment on several N4g articles. If you truly cared about your "cause", you wouldn't make another comment on N4g. You would instead actually make these complaints in places where they would be most likely to hear them. You are a problem to your cause and not a solution.

Personally I think you are full of crap and just a troll who doesn't really care at all about making gaming better and would rather just complain all day, but on the off chance that I'm wrong, I suggest you go on miiverse or directly write and contact Nintendo. If enough people share your sentiment (I'm guessing they don't) and do the same (I'm guessing they won't) then you may be able make some change.

there is no cause, its just my opinion. im not trying to start a movement haha im just merely sharing my thoughts. they arent official complaints lol

i dont need to complain to nintendo, if they have any sense they will look at their sales figures and realise something is wrong.

people keep defending nintendo even when the facts (sales figures) are indicating everything im saying is true.

im sure mario kart 8 will be a great game, but personally, i think mario kart is being diluted and losing the formula that made it so great in the first place. just straight karting, mixed with power-ups. all this power-gliding nonsense is just messing with the formula.

loop-the-loop tracks are fine, but i think they are coming at the expense of a new f zero game

Might skip this one. I want more emphasis on Battle. I don't even enjoy the racing.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   311d ago
...

Do I even need to say anything this time?
WeAreLegion  +   311d ago
Well, say something. I can't just read you from that response. Why does everyone only like the racing? Everyone I know only ever wants to race. I'm a fan of battling.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   311d ago
