Fact, there is no next gen game better than this right now.
It's not even as good as sanic racing, a last-gen game
Sounds like you just had bad luck while in second place close to first.
Item quality is based on proximity to first, so you basically have the first place item pool if you're right behind.
>Still liking mario kart
>Still buying the same game every year
I still believe that's bullshit. How can a first place get a red shell and I still get shitty items while I'm on 9th place while 8th gets a golden mushroom.
At any rate I just can't enjoy this game online
>the last console mario kart game was released in 2008
>the handheld was in 2011
>"not evry yeer!" literally the only defence
Nintenyearolds are pathetic.
the fuck is your problem?
that's all that needed to be said. did you want me to include a graph or something, dipshit?
You made a false statement, and people corrected you.
Ratchet and Clank as a mainline series and the like have way more games per gen than, say, Mario Kart.
But MK is more of a rehash because it's come out in numerous forms once every few years over several decades, right?
Calm down bro, you like playing the same rehashed game, it's cool.
>Thinking that's damage control
>Defending it by comparing it to other rehashes
>InFamous threads used to be really fun until people started getting excited for Second Son and threads started getting shitposted to oblivion
>you can't be excited for anything that isn't a Nintendo game here with the exception of a few multiplats and indie PC games.
>mfw people still treat Nintendo like they can do no wrong
Now watch as I get barraged by rabid Ninty fanboys for daring to not lick their shit off the ground.
I feel so fucking bad for sony fans.
I'm not a hater (hell, I even bought a vita to try to support them) but seriously, if they have to brag about their 6/10 game that means they are really fucking desperate. But I guess it's better than Microsoft fans, they don't even have that..
>"There is no game better"
>I think this game is better...
>"Fucking sony fans! Bragging about their shitty game, fucking desperate as fuck kek"
Are there even any corporate "fans" on /v/?
Mario Kart 8 really isn't that great, even by Mario Kart standards.
It's certainly not bad. But the single player content is about as bare bones as you could possibly make it.
- No Runners mode which was in the last three games
- Battle Mode is blatantly half assed
- One set of very easy staff ghosts
- Mirror Mode is the only notable thing to do besides the main cups and it's exactly what it's always been, literally just 150cc mirrored
The online is good, but not outstanding for the genre, the item balance and track design are more polished than other Mario Karts recently so it's core mechanics are good too.
What happened to stuff like Mario Kart DS? It introduced classic tracks AND had Battle and Runners AND had an entire Mission Mode with unique bosses. I'd also argue the driving mechanics were better in MKDS, though 8s track design is better.
It is very frustrating every now and then when you are #1 for the duration of the whole race but then as you are about to finish your final lap you get bombarded in front of the finish line and then end up being in the 5th or 6th place. Gotta keep in mind the game shouldn't really be considered a racing game as much as a party game. Still, doesn't make it any less frustrating.
