Weee! I got my official Mario Kart Wii license at the Nintendo tour!
Speaking of which, playing it… man. It is at the same time fun and frustrating. But I think I’ve figured something out. I think the computer doesn’t really target you when you’re in first… it just targets you, period. At one point I’d been knocked down the rankings a little, just to keep getting clobbered, or had a red shell pass by someone behind me to hit me. Just crazy.
I think Mario Kart’s still got a lot of great fun under the hood, but definitely needs some body work done if Nintendo wants the series to stop treading around those “franchises that need to end” lists that it seems to be flirting with as of late.
