Castle Geek-Skull wasn't convinced by Mario Kart 8 until seeing the character roster.
Five seconds of footage won me over.
I was blown away with the new direct for Mario Kart 8 today. I found it A LOT more enjoyable then some of the other directs that have come up. I hope Nintendo sticks with this format. I like how everything feels funny and engaging. I'm having a hard time choosing between Shy-Guy or Larry Koopa. Might just need to customize my Kart first and see who looks the best in their rig. Can't wait for May 30th! Need to finish up Mario Kart Wii and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed.
The character roster won me over too. It's better than even Smash's selection.
I wanna know if each character has its own special powerup like on superness
Really? What's so good about the character line up? It's all just the koopa klan and baby versions of the normal characters. (from Double Dash)
Shame they couldn't of added different ones or even ones which seem to be cut Monty Mole Toadsworth E. Gadd Mouser King Wart Pauline Birdo Donkey Kong Jr. Dry Bones Dry Bowser Funky Kong Honey Queen King Boo R.O.B. Wiggler Kamek Lubba Bowser Jr. Hammer bro Dixie Kong I really hope they have secret ones which haven't been shown off yet.
Poor Diddy :( Perhaps he isn't in because he will be in a new Diddy Kong Racing game.
