END AUTOMATED TEXT. THREAD CREATOR INFORMATION BELOW.

This May, one game will define MULTIPLAYER FUN on Wii U. That game, is Mario Kart 8!


Mario Kart has been a Nintendo staple since it's SNES debut over two decades ago. Only two Nintendo products neglected to have an entry and each entry that has existed is a charming title in someone's eyes. Entries like Double Dash on Gamecube helped push the boundaries of creativity and uniqueness, while more recent titles have continued to refine a core experience. Mario Kart 8 seeks to continue that trend with it's jaw-dropping HD visuals, Anti-gravity racing, and incredibly well-designed tracks.


With all the characters known, the deep customization possibilities to each individual racer, the classic 32-total track count... there's so much to discuss and share and debate. Reviews are just coming in now and while I'll post a few below but they're not all gushing with pride. User Stephen recently made a thread aiming to have a more comprehensive list of reviews available. So... Are you impressed with the Mario Kart TV feature, excited for the Super Horn, or bummed at how battle mode has changed? Share your thoughts on the game below, now, upon release, and well after! Below you'll find a list of Nintendo Network IDs as compiled by our own Mop It Up! Be sure your friends are added to your console!

@ploot

Yeah I hate that too!


I'm just gonna get on around 10. I can't do chat because I'm not by a computer.

So were we planning on setting up a room or just joining each other?

I hopped into ploot's game for now at least
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:02:27
Why oh why can't I just unlock all this crapola while playing online?? Thankfully Amanda is here.


Also sign me up for future DLC. This game needs more retro tracks.

We could probably just set up a room seeing as there's a decent amount of us.
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:16:58
@kgtennispro
@Smerd

It seems the servers are getting hit hard though!
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:20:07

Posted: 05/31/14, 05:24:47
@Smerd

Posted: 05/31/14, 05:25:43
I'm down for a race. How do i join you guys?
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:35:58
Is there a password or anything
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:37:33
I think just try joining one of us... not sure yet.
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:38:04
On my friends list I can see a bunch of you online...but on MK8. It doesnt show me anything
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:40:46
Tried joining Smerd's room and kept getting communication errors. Hmmm.
Posted: 05/31/14, 05:50:45
Am I doing something wrong? On my end I see everyone's name and I can send you a message, but t doesn't give me the option to join anyone >_>

EDIT: Oh...It's Smerd's room. Yeah, add me on your friend's list dude. :P

Rob, In that last match we had that I was in... on Yoshi Valley.... the level you and I both wanted so much... that ending... so hard fought... and I must say Awesome job clinching the 1st place finish! Good luck to you for the rest of your evening on the courses!
Posted: 05/31/14, 07:33:48
@ShadowLink_89

arg sorry man.... the room was full for awhile though.... there will be a next time!
Posted: 05/31/14, 08:27:40
Took four tries, but I finally got in on an online group. Once I was in the online worked great. Hopefully the "communication interruptions" and lag at the Nintendo rewards means that a great gobsmack of people have bought the thing.

I was getting my butt handed to me for the first few races, but came in second on the last one.

Haven't posted here in a while. Almost half a year, maybe? Anyway, I got this today. Finished all of 50cc On 100cc right now. Man, that Bowser level is so awesome. But, there are way too many kupa kids and baby characters. Eff'em. Pieces of crap. Pink Gold Peach on the other hand is great. New RR is pretty meh, IMO. Thankfully, N64 RR is here to save the day.

Also, if anybody wants to add me, my NNID is Ice-Insignia.

Uhhh... wtf @ battle mode?

kthxbye
Posted: 05/31/14, 09:20:07
So I've found one glitch....on my favorite course too D:

On Bowser's Castle online, I clipped through the track twice at the strip where Bowser punches the track. One time I chocked it up to some lag issues, but then it happened the next lap in the same exact spot.


EDIT: Oh good, someone made a video of it 15 days ago.
