Im a kart fan above all else. If you dont understand why then you need to get some more friends because single player mario kart sucks - unless you are practicing for a tournament or something. There is nothing that compares to the excitement of a four player race; it is better than mario party and better than smash brothers. I would put it up there with the first time I played Goldeneye multiplayer or 16 player Halo, except the euphoric feeling lasted longer than just the first two times playing. I hope the Wii kart has an online competition and more courses. I love the double dash format and hope Nintendo brings it back on Wii because I love having two sources of weapons to choose from. My favorite combo is either red shells and mushrooms or redshells an big banannas. So i like para troopa and toad/toadette, or para and diddy. I cant wait for the new version of this game and I hope that it uses controls similar to excite truck. Im also looking forward to Zelda, though I'm a little disapointed that you still tap B to use your sword. I would rather hold B (or a predefinable button) and swing the wiimote around with all my fury unleashed upon the enemy. I hope to own one on launch date, even though this is not smart in the event of a bug that needs to be fixed or a price drop. I will consistently write long posts as you can tell, maybe I'm full of myself and I like to be heard, or maybe I just have good things to say - that is for yall to decide.
