    I doubt this topic will get much attention considering I know the lot of yea, but meh.

    I was playing Mario Kart Double Dash yesterday and realized just how much better the DS version is than it. For me, Mario Kart DS is definitely my favourite Mario Kart game. The new courses are all pretty good (unlike DD's), the Retro cups are a great addition (especially the updated SNES tracks), and the new options like Mission Mode, WFC, etc. help extend the gameplay (Mission Mode in particular reminds me of Diddy Kong Racing). I know Super Circuit had a "retro" mode of sorts aswell, but overall that game hasn't left much of an impact on me. It was fun to play from time to time but not really much more.

    Mario Kart 64 was a great game and I got a lot of enjoyment out of it, yet looking back I have to wonder if it's because the game was really that good or because it was a HUGE leap from the original MK game and could have up to 4-players. The original MK may be a classic, but if you try playing it now it really hasn't lasted the test of time. All the additions in the newer MK's are just better (minus a few in DD).

    So, that's where I stand on it. Mario Kart DS pwnz, even if its online capabilities leave a lot to be desired. It's great just having 'em, but, really... no online Battle Mode? :p

    As racers they're all rather lame ducks with the approximate speed of a depressed slug.

    For creating an entire genre, however, my props go to the original NES game.

    Which, by the way, didn't have any cheap-assed Blue fucking Shells anywhere in sight.
     
  3. Mario Kart on the NES? I must've missed that one. ;)

    I travelled through time to make it with Shigsy. Hence its non-suckiness. ^^
