Mario kart 8 had a very successful launch. It has sold approximately 2 million copies to date and has had fantastic reception from both fans (including me) and critics.
I’ve played this game an absolute tonne, especially with friends.
One of my favourite aspects to the game is online mode. The average gamer tends to be more skilled than the AI in 150cc, making it difficult but not impossible to do continuously good (since there is a huge element of luck in the gameplay).
Something odd about the online however is that there is no microphone usage allowed on the public communities. Unfortunately this means you cannot hear some kid screaming at you to “Suck my balls asslicker” 😦
Instead players can select from a list of phrases which their miis will shout out (in text form), shown bellow in a funny comic
