"No, nobody broke embargo. Someone just published their magazine earlier than expected."
UGH! I can't wait! That's a really good score. Other journalist have been hyping Mario Kart 8 on Mii Verse. I can't wait to get my hand's on this game. I'm going to throw a Mario Kart Party and have a bunch of friends over with a ton of food. Going to be a BLAST!!!
I as well am throwing an MK8 party. May also include Beerio Kart.
90 isn't special when review sites sites just use the 65-100 portion of the 0-100 scale. This MK8 and WiiU fan fare on N4G isn't warranted.
Next Gen. for this console Holiday season confirmed. 4 owners,.. such as )my(Our-self's. Nintend Cand, what X -Don't. (fun original games,. in full 1080p.)
WiiU finally gets a game! I guess its not that useless after all...not!
Quality over quantity.
Wii U has a ton of great games. Let me guess your still playing last gen systems. Here is the link to the review guys. http://www.gamepur.com/news... 60 FPS is confirmed. Most last gen games do not do that.
I have over 20 games on Wii U. What're you playing on PS4/Xbox One...?
@ Rumb13stiltzkin Yeah, compare a system that has been out for more than a year to systems that haven't even completed half a year. Also, how many Non-Nintendo games do you own for your Wii U? Anyway, I haven't been interested in Nintendo franchises since the Gamecube, except maybe Metroid & Mario Kart. I think I'll buy the MK bundle in a couple of months.
@Sugreev2001 It's the same as when people say the PS4 and Xbox One are "better" than Wii U - they haven't even completed half a year, right? But I don't see people poking holes when it's put into THAT context... The only Nintendo games I own on Wii U are: - New Super Mario Bros. - Nintendo Land - Super Mario 3D World - Pikmin 3 The rest are third-party titles. Why do people act like there are nothing but Nintendo games on Wii U? How many titles do you think they've released in ~1.5 years?
@Rumb13stilzkin: I own 24 games for my Wii U and that's NOT even including what I own from the Eshop. Not even CLOSE! I still need a few more. I need to pick up still. Deus Ex Need For Speed Most Wanted U Re pick up New Super Mario Bros U (Son ruined my original copy) Pac Man World Soon to be Mario Kart 8 Virtual Console: I just need GBA F-Zero and GBA Yoshi's Island.
@Sugreev2001 LMAO that excuse. I guess it was okay to compare PS1 vs N64 PS2 vs GC and Xbox X360 vs PS3 and Wii because year head start.
Don't be bitter.
Obvious trolling, but you really sound ridiculous. Wii U, like the Wii, has awesome games that ignorant gamers like yourself conveniently overlook. Name for me, literally, ONE console exclusive on PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 that sold as much as Brawl (which wasn't even bundled with the console). Maybe you can name one, I didn't even check. I just know Brawl did amazing numbers. I'm predominantly a PlayStation gamer as well, but Nintendo has some damn fine games on Wii U.
That joke was funny when the Wii U first came out but now u just making urself look like a fool
Haha going hard!
Got a Mario Kart party in the works, too! Even people who hardly touch games are psyched about Mario Kart!
They need to make a mario kart with photorealistic backgrounds
90% is pretty good, I was expecting better but it's probably just the reviewer's opinion. Looking forward to seeing more reviews, and getting my hands on this game in 24 days. :O
When the hell did 9/10 become 'pretty good'?
Having seen all the footage 90% feels like its going to be 1 of the lower scores. Fully expecting 94/95 metacritic score for this.
The day fanboys highjacked review scores... I get that games get screwed over by the Polygon's and Edge's of the world. Some games that are clearly of a higher quality than the average game receive score far lower than average. A game that's getting all 9's and 10's receives a 4 from Quarter to Three from that troll Tom Chick. In those cases, it's understandable that there's a reaction. But a game getting a 9 and people complaining about it is outrageous. It really is a shame some can't be happy with 9's. 1-4 is a bad game 5-6 is a mediocre game that has a few issues that cant be overlooked 7-8 is a "pretty good" game 9 is outstanding 10 should be reserved for the best of the best. A once in a generation quality game.
People expect too much from nintendo. Thats a near perfect score. Im sure ill give it a 10/10. But to each his own. Nintendo has been recieving excellent reviews lately.
I think R00 was expecting like a 9.5 because this game looks amazing! I thought the same thing.
Like the others said, I expect this will be one of the lower reviews. I'm expecting most reviews will be 9.5+.
Mario Kart 8 is going to be good !
so hyped for this and I get pikmin 3 or mario u free same day omg and watch dogs 3 days before
Don't worry Mario Kart 9 will support voice chat
So will mk8...
Your troll was bad, and you should feel bad.
MK8 supports voice chat and so do a bunch of other Wii U games. Go play your last gen system!
I disagreed because you imply that last gen systems are bad. I love my Wii U, but I still get a ton of use out of my PS3. :)
@deafdani Same here! PS3 ain't out of the woodwork yet. Last gen consoles still have their uses and amazing libraries.
