Mario Kart 8

All I can say is wow, hope I don’t get motion sick while playing this. Rainbow Road stole the trailer (there are actually 2 of them, an updated version of the Mario Kart 64 one, and a brand new one), the game looks amazing. New power ups (piranha plant, blue boomerang, metal, and more), as well as hovercraft transformations, paraglyder. Nintendo outdid themselves with this one, now I’m going to go play some Mario Kart 64.

I can’t wait to hit the wife with a blue turtle shell.


Release Date: May 30th, 2014

Wii U games I am excited for

Pikmin 3

Three Brave Explorers – Alph, Brittany, And Charlie – Embark On An All-Important Mission. Their Goal: To Gather The Food Needed To Save Their Depleted Home Planet, Koppai. Their Best Hope Is Pnf-404, A Lush Green Planet Far From Home. But When They Finally Arrive, Something Goes Terribly Wrong. The Explorers Make A Crash Landing And Get Separated.

I’m totally stoked for this one. Pikmin 1 and 2 were among the few highlights for the Gamecube, so naturally this caught my attention. The Yellow, Red, and Blue Pikmin are returning, and debuting are 2 new kinds: Rock Pikmin, which should be perfect for smashing through obstacles, and Winged Pikmin, they can fly anywhere, and carry objects over danger.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropica Freeze

It’s about damn time we get an actual Donkey Kong game. The gamecube had 1 or 2, but it was the drum beat one, and lets be honest, that isn’t Donkey Kong. Dixie Kong is back, and players can choose to play as either her or Diddy Kong, alongside Donkey Kong. Vikings have scared the residents of Donkey Kong island away, so its up to you to reclaim the island.

Super Mario 3D World

Cat power up, ’nuff said.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

The trailer speaks for itself. A lot of people at the time had an issue with the cell shading, but I loved it, and will be picking this up to play all over again.
