    Looks a bit to childish for my liking they should make the new mario kart like the old skool versions like the one of the snes and N64 those were the best.

    I don't understand what you mean by childish. It's the same general idea as the originals.

    I get what he means by childish, I love the Mario Kart series but the graphics don't look very good. Smash Bros graphics look far better. I hope the game play is killer.

    Who cares? This kart game's gonna rawk. <3

    I hope Daisy's gonna be in there, otherwise my sis will go loopy. 9_9 Peach is my gal... wait, is she riding a bike!? Good lord, how can you win on that thing?? XD Man, Peach must have some strong legs. *bricked*

    My fave part about these screens... I see many tracks I recognize! Namely my old favorite Moo Moo Farm! *bounceoffwalls* I still wish they could have added on the double racer feature like in Double Dash.

    Yeah, I love it A LOT. Because me and my sis like to play most of our games together--that's why I tend to be the only one who really loves rpgs because I don't mind single player games. But I love 2player ones where you can adventure together, it's a lot more fun! Especially if it's optional.

    Take Legend of Mana, Tales of Symphonia, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for example. All had optional multiplayer adventure/gameplay.

    Well, I'll be fine either way, but it'd still be nice if they had like "Duo Mode" or something. XD

    Motorbikes FTW! And you can perform stunts! It doesn't get any better, as long as they have replays, to show off the stunts. I'm wondering, what happens if you screw up a wheelie, or any stunt for that matter? D'you go flying off your kart/bike?

    Sounds sweet. <3 Can't wait to roll dem bikes.

    And it would be funny if you could mess up a stunt and go flying. XD I used to have an old computer game where that happened quite often. The flying off your motorcycle thing was SO unrealistic in that game, I did on purpose just to laugh. Never got tired of it.

    Trailer! Thanks for the heads up wiiiiii~

    might be like when you pop a wheelie and you go too far and have to step off

    or maybe the stunts are not actually that important and are just like spinning in air.

    i doubt there will be wheelies

    that could have just been like the intro to the game they show of loads of things there that arnt in the game

    but if it does have wheelies, ill be dissapointed i like these game because they were simple and there was no falling off, it was just pure fun racing around hitting each other with weapons

    i don't really care if the online is only 6 and not 8. that is still a good amount of fun to be had. the game looks great. i can't wait to get it. i just hope the motion controls are good and the online has a nice variety of modes.
