Mario Kart 8 is one of the best games released this year, so it’s not surprising to see it top Game of the Year lists. Respected UK news publication The Guardian have declared it the best game of 2014 beating the likes of Destiny and TitanFall. Not content with giving Mario Kart 8 first place they’ve also awarded the fabulous Bayonetta 2 the second best video game of 2014. Anyway, here’s what the news publication had to say about Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8.
“Regardless of the Wii U’s troubles Nintendo remains one of (if not the) greatest developers on the planet in terms of making games that are a pure joy to play, and Mario Kart 8 is one of its finest. The question with Mario Kart 8 was never really “is this going to be good”, because with Nintendo that much can be taken for granted. The question is whether it’s the best yet. And, among one hell of a field, it takes first place.”
Hallowed is the holy N…
It’s a decent game
Only main problem with MK8 is Battle Mode being ruined with race tracks instead of closed arenas which is a big mistake.
I spend most of my time playing Smash Brothers anyway…
I doubt it.
Gaming time, not time overall…
I mean I doubt he even has any of those games at all.
It could be, I’ve given him my NNID twice now and still nothing, suspicious…
I told you he’s bullshit just like Hollowgrape.
HollowGrapeJ is just a kid but he didn’t lie, I’ve played with him a few times Mario Kart 8 during the summer…
I mean about his Wii U being “broken” and he once said WITH CERTAINTY, that he’s selling it because there’s no third party support. You mean the same 3rd rate party support that can’t build a complete quality games for shit anymore and reuses the same old shooter genre endlessly and falsely overhype games with fake visuals and gameplay elements that was previously shown 3 years ago and removed for launch day con arts by also embargoing game reviews?
Fuck out of here with that crap. Hollow isn’t fooling me.
Obviously confused but I’ll of course monitor his existence as always…
Yeah. I know he’s aiming to sell it.
He said he’s was selling it because of his financial issues idiot.
Hard to believe.
He said it himself.
And you believe in text over the internet that easily? lol
And why would he make that up?
The same way Ubisoft BS their pledged “support” for Nintendo with Wii U: To hide the obvious truth.
Didn’t I give you mine already?
And I added you like months ago, you still haven’t accepted it unless you gave me the wrong name or forgot a letter or something…
If it was months ago, I would have definitely added you. I don’t use the Wii U much anymore but I haven’t seen any requests in so far.
It would have been nice if there was a mission mode like MKDS because only doing races can get tiring, and adding another mode would add to its replay-ability since battle mode is bad.
Here’s my story with MK8- I played the fuck out of it for 2 weeks, then just completely stopped and never touched it again
Now that I think about it sounds like my relationship with drinking :P
That’s kinda the same for me, I’ve been playing MK8 nonstop for a couple of weeks, but then completely stopped playing it. Hell, I’ve only played the DLC tracks twice.
Yeah like Shuhei after I 100% completed the game I just completely forgot about it. It was mostly boring after that
If only the ancient Egyptians had had a story about you instead of the endless boring almost worshiping of you…
Stop doing heroin!
You cannot escape me dog, we both know the ways of darkness…
Was it as opposed to be a secret?
Egyptians aside, what it needs is to get rid of coins in online multiplayer at least and Double Dash option gameplay…
Next year it will be game over for Nintendo, long live to Sony
NINTENDO IS SO RICH IT CAN BUY SONY
SONY ARE LOOSING BILLIONS EVERY 1/4 YEAR NINTENO IS PROFITING 100S OF THOUSANDS EVERY 1/4YEAR
This year nintendo returned to full profitabillity sony are loosing billions and have had the biggest corperate hack in history
every devision of sony reports massive loss sony has no first party games and its console a out dated controller and ZERO gaming evolution
sony sold all its assets to survive nintendo just built a 1.2 billion research and dvelopment building
YOU ARE DELUSIONAL
No, no. Most of Sony’s divisions have been posting profits over the past few reports. While most were posting losses in the past years, that has changed.
I’m glad you question the game, commender. Thus I hated the coin system due to fat fast characters, selected by very experience racers. Some of my competing friends liked the coin system and even double dash option as you written.
I wasn’t a fan of the coin system or some aspects of the battle setup, but I thought the game was very solid overall. I enjoyed the heck out of it.
That would be helpful to causal racers, like teaching them how to fire hopping.
Indeed, I still think Double Dash is the best entry…
For some reason, I enjoyed MK DS the most out of all of the entries. Love that game (still play it every now and then).
I hope all these awards gain the Wii U the recognition it needs to completely change it’s fortune…
This really will not change public perception of the Wii U. What Nintendo needs to do is come out with a new model of the Wii U, even if it’s just upgrading the gamepad a little and with a larger internal memory capacity and then market the heck out of that system and market it well.
The Wii U could have been huge but Nintendo made the mistake of thinking it could ride off of the success of the original Wii. The name caused too much confusion and there wasn’t a clear idea as to what the system was. Most of the general consumer population didn’t even know it existed. With the original Wii, everyone and their mother knew what it was before it even came out.
They just need to take a serious look at their marketing plan and start over in a sense with that. Some of the damage has already been done, but they can rebound a little.
I know this is irrelevant but does anyone have this problem where videos of music sound distorted on youtube using the internet browser but not the youtube app because i don’t know if this is normal or not because it only happens in the browser it sounds crystal clear with everything else.

Reblogged this on RRB's Games Blog and commented:
YEA! I agree, this is one of those games that has so much replay value, with mates or just doing time trials or even battles online, there is so much depth in every way and it helped to save the Wii U from complete non starting.
……..and another one.
I want to smell Rosalinda’s butt.
“…have declared it the best game of 2014 beating the likes of Destiny and TitanFall.”
That’s not hard. Most games of 2014 have beaten these two.
I think the point of that statement is that those were supposed to be the biggest and best games of the year according to the hype and marketing before they were released. Obviously, most agree they weren’t.
So Mario Kart 8 has won 5 awards so far and I’m sure more are on the way!! :D
Mario Kart 8 is the worst game of the year for me. Rushed Battle mode, broken item system; lunatic mode seemly more stable and fairness than normal, hidden gitches that would pull your hair, weight system is either random or nonexistence and lagging online experience alone is just simply too much.
Of course, that’s in competing sense. So it sucks as a racing game. It fits as a causal game. I rather play lagging matches in SMASH then dealing with awful item system of MK8!
Yeah: You are the only person on this planet who knows the truth. The rest are idiots and love MK8…
Thanks for showing us how good your gaming opinions are. ;-P
He or she did say, “for me.” It’s his or her opinion, even if we disagree with it.
