    He linked to his blog so he could get hits and ad revenue. Not cool, man.
    And the link to the video on the site is a adf.ly link.

    A mod or mag-staffer should change the source in the OP to this.

    I just added the video and did some minor formatting, as well as clarified the title.

    Well I played this at GAMEfest and, not owning a 3DS myself, it was pretty good but I don't know how long the novelty of 3D on Mario Kart. Underwater was nice and different as is the gliding, but I don't really think it's enough. Everyone's played this game to death already (or at least, should have done) and I don't think Nintendo have done enough with this to make it different from the rest of the series.

    It was only from 3 tracks though so I could be totally wrong. [​IMG]

    It was just worded a little oddly, that's all. I made it a bit shorter and to the point.

    Looks alright I guess. I'm not a huge racing game fan, but the Mario Kart games are fun to break out at a party.

    Am I the only one who finds it odd that they're calling this one Mario Kart 7, though, after not numbering any of the others? Apparently it is because Nintendo thinks that calling it Mario Kart 3D would hurt sales, but still; at least add a subtitle or something. ("Mario Kart: You Can Fly For Bits In This One")

    Not really, considering that they didn't call the second Mario Kart game for home consoles Mario Kart 2, or the third Mario Kart 3, or the fourth Mario Kart 4, etc.

    When you establish a theme in naming your games (Mario Kart + System Name/Gameplay Feature), it sticks out like a sore thumb when you suddenly decide to break it.

    Err, it was a joke.

    Nintendo said that themselves in a faux-interview video.

    Whoops

    Didn't see the video, and tone is a tad bit difficult to discern over text. My mistake.

    If it's better than MKDS (which it seems to be), I'm in. MKDS was the only MK I didn't like.
