Last week, a Nintendo Switch update made it possible to share short videos of select first-party games on social media. The feature isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t matter. Right now, despite being in the middle of fall game season, many video game fans are talking about months-old Nintendo releases instead.
Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take. Many of the reveals were only available on the convention floor, but there will still plenty of announcements you can look forward to as we creep closer to the holidays.…
This is probably the closest we’ll get to a Wolverine appearance in Mario Kart 8.
I’m on record as a big fan of those on-court and on-ice projection systems proliferating throughout our nation’s arenas, but Tampa might have achieved apotheosis.
Many of us spent a good portion of our college years battling it out in Mario Kart. Those carefully-honed skills aren’t exactly a big seller on your resume, unless you happen to be one of four Colorado State University students who created a real-life version of the game, complete with weapons and power-ups.
Oh, what a lovely day.
Ever since Nintendo made its surprise announcement that Mario Kart 8 was getting a new high-speed difficulty level, excited fans have had one question: what would it do to Mario Kart?
Those pesky laws of the universe make it all but impossible to recreate the tracks, vehicles, and stunts you can perform in Mario Kart 8 in real life, but that didn't stop JAKKS Pacific from trying. The company's remote control version of Mario and his kart looks exactly like its video game counterpart, right down to…
A collaboration between 6kyubi6, 74louloute and fujiia celebrates the awesomeness that is Mario Kart. Even though this game makes you hate your friends, these pals somehow made this build come together. All of my favorite characters are represented and nearly all of the weapons of destruction were built.
Earlier this year, YouTube announced plans to support videos running at 60 frames-per-second—plans that would make a huge difference for footage of video games. Today, the video network has finally started rolling out the new service, and you can already tell that this is going to be wonderful.
"I don't want to go to bed at night thinking I've ruined thousands of people's fun," one of the two men who's cracked open the code for the Wii U's biggest game told me this week. I was confused.
Don't play games online, they say. If you have to play games online, turn off chat. If you have to turn on chat, limit it to your friends list. In the past, if you've wanted to avoid the toxic jerks of online gaming, those have been your guidelines. It feels like that's finally changing.
People cutting their teeth online in Mario Kart 8 know this moment all too well. Say you're racing towards the end of the track. You're in second place. Maybe third. Things are still close, close enough that you're not going to give up just yet.
I'm not gonna lie: Luigi's Death Stare is my favorite thing to happen in 2014 so far.
Everyone who's played Mario Kart secretly wants it to be real. Sure, flinging turtle shells and banana peels at other cars will probably get you arrested, and while I once did go karting after eating some shrooms, I can't say it helped my speed. So I was exited to try real-life Mario Kart at SXSW. Here's what it's…
After two weeks of hearing about sports you've never cared to follow in the past four years, you've probably wondered why the short track skaters don't just ... you know ... throw a blue shell at the end? And here we can see what would happen if they did.
I don't want much. A bed to sleep on, a nice pair of shoes, some beer to drink and I'm good. Or so I thought. Now I could care less about any of that because all I want in my life is this drifting Crazy Cart XL. It's basically the real life version of the cart in Mario Kart.
Mario Kart just might be the funnest video game in the entire world. Only the soulless can't find enjoyment in go kart racing with super fast Mushroom speed, red shells and Nintendo characters. So you can imagine the even more ridiculous levels of fun you can have if you turned Mario Kart into a real life race against…
It'll probably be a few more years before 3-D printing begins revolutionizing the world of retail, but it's already making a sizable splash in today's DIY community. For around 1500 bucks, it's now possible to get your hands on a consumer-grade 3-D printer that's capable of churning out some pretty cool objects.
