Luigi’s Death Stare Is the Best Reason to Buy Mario Kart 8

Luigi is a one-man kart-racing meme machine in Mario Kart 8. In several slow motion videos and a handful of facial expressions, Mario Kart 8 has taught us more about Luigi’s inner badass than any game he’s been in so far. As his “death stare” expression very clearly states: the year of Luigi’s not over! Forget fire flowers—he’ll burn a hole in you with those eyes.

Hopefully Nintendo recognizes the meme and makes it a trademark feature to Luigi's character.

Why the heck is this so dang funny?

It was funny at first, like something you watch for a minute or so but god damn...people are really over hyping this.

I mean I saw another article saying how they bought a Wii U for it. I mean really? Come on man

People are focusing on this one thing from Mario Kart instead of how good the actual bloody game is.

"Oh buy Mario Kart 8 everyone"

" it a good game"

"Huh...yeah sure....but there's this death stare Luigi does from time to time"

"....Right but what about the game"

"Oh...yeah it's good........BUT THE DEATH STARE MAN"

Actually I think the reason people are so focused on this meme is because everyone is already aware and past the point of acknowledging how great MK8 is lol.

Just like how you over exaggerated Mario kart 8 having no battle arenas even tho there probably will be a lot of DLC including arenas. Your just as quick to overly downplay things as they are to overhype.

Pot kettle black.

That has no substance to what we or the article is talking about.

Battle arenas were awesome in past Mario games the fact they took them out were ridiculous when this could of been the perfect Mario Kart

The fact your comparing the removal of a much loved mode to a silly stare a character does in the game......come on man what the hell.

I cannot believe how this has blown up so much. It's awesome and cute. Still crazy. It was even on the news.... Whoever made this video should get a check or props from Nintendo because it's definitely helped with the marketing.

I would say the best reason is the multiplayer, especially on one console, but you go ahead and blow this mildly amusing footnote out of proportion, by all means.
