    Here it is folks the Mario kart Wii post.

    Here are a few questions that are yet to be answered

    1.Final Rosters
    2.Stages or Courses
    3.Types Cars

    The release date has been confirmed to April 2, 2008

    With promising new features such as mid air tricks and "Bikes" how do you think this will effect sales and overall fun value

    1. I don't care, I'll still play the lightest racer, be it turtle or toad.
    2. I REALLY hope one day they could make every track ever made and new tracks for every sequel of mario kart, but let's be realistic and hope there are more than 16; And please, ONLINE BATTLE MODE.
    3. Will try out the bikes, always nice to see them trying out new stuff, even though it really failed with double dash.

    Honestly, I'm hoping for the same rush as MKDS online, only better since you can race more than three other people in this version.
    I also hope they make distinct "snaking/exploits allowed" and "snaking/exploits disallowed" online modes because that really divided players.

    i don't think they'll be any major surprises in the lineup for mario kart wii, i highly doubt we'll see anyone outside of the mario universe.

    Snaking isn't that hard, and it's a fun technical way to gain and advantage over rookies who are like "aww man a snaker, I quit".

    Mario Kart : DD was awesome, if you don't like it I guess you just go with the crowd without playing the game. Two players on your cart didn't make any kind of difference other than the ability to have more items, which meant more chaos, which meant more fun.

    I found mario kart DD an awesome mario kart as well.
    I don't really mind the snaking although there should be an option to play with snaking disabled, there really should be. Especially online

    ^Definitely agree! It SHOULD be left in the game, but just with an option to disable it. It makes the game fun, it just sucks when it's over-used.

    or maybe someone that enjoys a multiplayer game after a hard day of work without having played the game for 2 months in a row master each corner of each track.

    so you want to be able to win against people that have played for 2 months without putting in the effort? that doesnt sound like a very rewarding game. no matter how much you train, someone that has just picked up the game could come and beat you. sounds like a kids game to me. i hope they keep snaking, and make it very hard to do

    Well Mario Kart was always somewhat like that, like the players that are the most behind get the best items to use. It's not childish, just accessible. People who have never played before can have a chance then too, so they won't loose hope immediately. Most Nintendo games are about having fun rather than winning always and being the leetest or something.

    I bought Gears of Wars a while ago, but when I get headshotted before I even see where the enemy is, I get demotivated to even get better at the game. Not everyone likes games that are only accessible to pro players, if you want to have a racer that requires skill only to win, then there are more then enough regular racing games...

    And it's not that Mario Kart doesn't require skill at all, it's just that luck has a factor too. Where's the fun for a noob if he always looses because he hadn't learned some weird technique skipping from the sides of the roads and stuff. Don't see why players who aren't in to weird techniques shouldn't be allowed to enjoy a game as well...

    I absolutly hate snaking! I can do anything else except for that. Maybe I think that since I've never used it I never will. I know MKDS has a mission where you have to snake, needless to say I cheated my way outta that one.

    Yes, but DD had TOO MUCH luck. Three blue shells in the same race, and you can go from number one to last place. That's not fun, that's childish frustration.

    People who hate 'snaking' in MK games just suck at it, then complain because they are really bad losers.

    Simple fact, the more skilled player (snaker) is much more likely to win barring 'bad/goodluck'... thats the way it should be, ie more skill ftw.

    people who can't snake and can't take losing to a more skilful player should seek other non-skilled people to play with, this applies to all games.

    I can snake but I choose not to. It's lame and boring.

    Snaking gives too much of an advantage IMO and I'm not one of those people that always has to win to feel good about myself as a person.

    I don't care if I lose against a 'noob' it doesn't effect my ego like some of the people in this thread.

    snaking does not = skill...it's just a cheap trick that anyone can learn if they play the game for long enough. Boosting around corners I have no problem with at all however.

    I have the most fun with mario cart when it's a close race - even if I lose.
