Mario Kart and Collect-a-thons

Blue Shells: Ruining friendships since 1996

I bought the new Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U. It’s pretty awesome, I must say. Love the the Retro Cup; they really made those old tracks look awesome, but still recognisable. They changed them much more than they did in the previous games that had a Retro Cup. Mario Kart 8 comes with a free downloadable game, so I got The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. It is quite awesome. I have a crappy old tube TV, and it still looks way better than the original GameCube version did. I also have New Super Mario Bros. U, and Super Luigi U. That is the extent of my Wii U collection. For now. I really like it though. If you are a Nintendo fan, I highly recommend getting it.

I remember being skeptical of the Wii U GamePad when I first heard about it, but now that I’ve used it, I have lost all skepticism. It’s kind of like a large Gameboy. You can’t take it absolutely everywhere, but you can take it away from the TV. My bedroom is right next to my living room, which is in range of the Wii U. I like to play the games while lying in bed. It’s really nice. Nintendo, I am sorry for doubting you. I should have known better. It’s awesome to use it as a TV remote, too. It makes me feel like I’m in the future.
