Mario Kart 8 Preview - Multiplayer Mayhem | TSA

TSA writes: "When I close my eyes, I see a rainbow road; every noise I hear transforms itself into the backing music of Thwomp Ruins; my fingers ache from holding the GamePad.

Glorious, hilarious and joyous local multiplayer, in an age where developers are far too eager to move to online only."

"We’re not going to be too specific about the tracks and features here – we’ll save all of that for a review next week – but just know that Mario Kart 8, as a multiplayer experience, is one of the purest and most fun things you’ll find in gaming. Many developers appear to believe that local multiplayer is dead, but that’s not true – they’re just not ready to take on Nintendo."

Nuff said. :)

Yes! Local multiplayer will always beat online if you ask me. Sadly, as my friends and I are getting older it is much harder to organize such get-togethers with so many other responsibilities to handle. However, games like Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros will have to take priority =P

You're not trying hard enough ;)

I'm 40 years old and am throwing a "Super Mario Karty Party" on the 30th... So far I have about 10 people coming - many more and I might have to try and borrow a 2nd Wii U or I'll have a riot on my hands :D

This will definitely be my favorite racing game for a long while.
