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!!!

choujij1603d ago

I as well am throwing an MK8 party. May also include Beerio Kart.

mikeslemonade1602d ago (Edited 1602d ago )

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.

sAVAge_bEaST1602d ago (Edited 1602d ago )

Next Gen. for this console Holiday season confirmed.
owners,.. such as )my(Our-self's.

Nintend Cand, what X -Don't.

(fun original games,. in full 1080p.)

Magicite1603d ago

WiiU finally gets a game!
I guess its not that useless after all...not!

iplay1up21603d ago

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.

60 FPS is confirmed. Most last gen games do not do that.

Rumb13stiltzkin1603d ago

I have over 20 games on Wii U.

What're you playing on PS4/Xbox One...?

Sugreev20011603d ago

@ 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.

Rumb13stiltzkin1603d ago (Edited 1603d ago )


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?

DryBoneKoopa851603d ago

@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.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1603d ago


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.

DarXyde1602d ago

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.

DoggyBiscuit1602d ago

That joke was funny when the Wii U first came out but now u just making urself look like a fool

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

dodgemoose1603d ago

When the hell did 9/10 become 'pretty good'?

weekev151603d ago

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.

InTheLab1603d ago

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.

eworthington01603d ago

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.

iplay1up21603d ago

I think R00 was expecting like a 9.5 because this game looks amazing! I thought the same thing.

R00bot1602d ago (Edited 1602d ago )

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 !

bobsmith1603d ago

so hyped for this and I get pikmin 3 or mario u free same day omg and watch dogs 3 days before

Wni01603d ago

Don't worry Mario Kart 9 will support voice chat

BlackWolf1603d ago

Your troll was bad, and you should feel bad.

iplay1up21603d ago

MK8 supports voice chat and so do a bunch of other Wii U games. Go play your last gen system!

deafdani1603d ago

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. :)

randomass1711603d ago

@deafdani Same here! PS3 ain't out of the woodwork yet. Last gen consoles still have their uses and amazing libraries.

admiralvic1602d ago

Horrible troll, since that rumor was pretty weak to begin with. What happened was a site simply didn't see voice chat listed on the site or something trivial like that and reported that it might not support voice chat on those grounds. Nintendo eventually revealed that they were wrong and it does have voice chat.
