    I was in the beta. The controls were...interesting. slide your finger to the right or left to drive, tap to shoot items. Loads of fun as long as you did it more casually. When you start whipping out more advanced moves, the game had a fit.

    As long as you didn't try to do anything complicated, it was fine. But there was an auto-avoid-walls/falls that you could not turn off. Some of the auto-assist you could turn off, but not everything. So if I was doing a drift event slightly near a wall or edge, the game would autocorrect my driving and I'd start running into things. Also if there was a split in the road and you were drifting towards one a bit harshly, it might correct you to the other path...running you straight into the wall. Imagine the switch version with all the auto stuff turned on with touch controls. It was annoying as heck.

    Microtransactions will be pretty much the same as animal crossing. You pay to unlock the good drivers/karts/etc, though you can sometimes get them yourself through normal gameplay. Though since there are huge bonuses for using certain characters/carts/etc on certain tracks, it had a very "pay to win" feel to it.

    All this was my experience from the beta. Hopefully it'll change in the final but...well, we'll see.

    I recorded loads of footage from the beta, i'll be comparing to the final when its released. Hopefully they took my advice to heart.

    Nobody minds that it's fecking portrait mode? Why would you make this game in fecking portrait mode?

    Hmmm... I do not know what to think about this game, let alone playing it. Knowing that it will be littered with micro-transaction urks me and I like playing Mario Kart even though I am not all that great at it. While I saw Peach in the video, does anyone knows if Rosalina will be in the game? Most likely locked character though.
    Wonder if BlueStacks will be able to run the game?

    When I see people post pointless negative bullshit I will point it out - you are basically saying all mobile games are bolox which is totally a stupid comment - anyway back to Mario kart it will break records for day 1 downloading

    There are a lot of ways to do that though, especially for a game like this. Just add texture and resolution scaling. Adjustable graphics goes a long way.

    Playing a racing game in vertical mode doesn't feel right to me.
    I'll try it out though.

    It really won't have proper multiplayer on the final game? Is that confirmed?

    why
    i dunno, mk7 kinda fizzled out fairly quickly

    and it's never too late for a first, especially if it's a mobile game with "wait until your energy recharges" mechanics

    will include a new feature: you'll run out of gas mid race and need to top up with $ :creep:
