Over a year after its announcement, and 2 months after the end of the closed beta, Mario Kart Tour will finally be available for iOS and Android next month. [prebreak][/prebreak]This is Nintendo's third mobile Mario game, and eighth mobile game overall, excluding games licensed by The Pokémon Company. The release comes shortly after Dr. Mario World, which came out on July 10th.

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp was only just barely tolerable on my old Android phone up until the update that increased the RAM requirement beyond what my phone could support. For Dr. Mario World, the lag was just bad enough that I uninstalled it in frustration after it screwed me over particularly badly. So, I don't have much hope that I'll have any fun with this game.

This looks like crap compared to Mario Kart DS. At least the tracks were more detailed than whatever that is.

Not to start a huge arguement but dang. Mario kart fan is dissapointed.
Can't expect much from a mobile game, they gotta make it run on several generations of older smartphones.

i hope it runs on the switch booted into android OS
i tested all of the nintendo apps on switch android and they work. only problem is for me, they didnt show up on google play so i had to download them from somewhere else, and sometimes they wouldnt boot so i had to root with magisk and hide root

Well yeah, of course. And mobile controls are infinitely hampered unless they find an ingenious way to use the motion controls. But still, even the older phones are better than a DS by a long shot. I really don't see how microtransactions can work with traditional mario kart mechanics, but if it's not pay2play well heck I'll try it.

    still only 600-700 nits i have to use the contrast enhancer to make bright lights look as bright as they are supposed to but the alternative was the next tier up and buying a demo model that would've been about the same cost, that had 1000 nits but issues with black crush

    Where prices are low

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
