  1. Can people stop buying Mario Kart 8?! I want a MK made for the Switch. Not going to happen if Mario Kart from WiiU keeps selling like this on Switch.

    1. totally agree, people who bought it on the wiiU first day of release in 2014 feels like its been ages.. I hope at least they give us new DLC courses

  2. Multiplat games should outsell platform exclusives, especially on launch week. Really it’s good news that Pokemon Snap still has sales as it’s not a game for everyone.

  3. The resident evil 8 villain reminds me of Hachishakusama. If you can tolerate not safe for work content I recommend watching episode 3 of Toshi Densetsu.

  4. Resident Evil 8 totally deserves the number one spot seriously RE7 and RE8 outdone the previous entries in the series to me they are masterpieces.. I hope they stick to that kind of direction for the next main entries in the future
