This controller will prove to be totally fucking awesome, and there's an end of it.

Much like the Advance one; same characters, different-looking karts.

Only the SNES and GC versions of Mario Kart are worth playing, in my opinion.

What, you didn’t like Mario kart 64?, that was the only one I liked.

Visually the DS title is most comparable to the N64 one anyway, though now with 3d models instead of sprites for the racers and of course, a lack of any anti aliasing or texture filtering.

The game has a lot of potential in my opinion, there's a lot of work going into it, not just with the online play. There's some interesting new Singleplayer and multiplayer modes, new items, multiple karts per character and so on, I'm definitely picking it up on (European) release.

About the Revolution controller, well, I think it has a lot potential, I'm just not entirely sure yet if they can actually pull it off.

No, I liked it. I just felt there was no sensation of speed. Also, the CPU was a cheap bastard who would ride up on your ass if you got in front of him for mre than a second. That was annoying.

We're talking about a series where a plumber saves a kingdom of mushrooms from a giant dragon turtle thing. Realism is NOT a valid argument for not feeling like you're moving at a decent clip.

OK, what about Mario never being really fast? Wait, he has to run a whole stage in less that 3 minutes…he is fast for being a fat plunder.

Mario kart 64 started the whole 3D karts mania, and is one of the best games for the Nintendo 64. If you don’t like it, fine!.

When karts are going 50 km an hour, I want it to feel like more than Mario running at double speed. That's what my problem with Mario Kart 64 was.

Then, forget about Mario and play the good fast Sonic games.

C'mon, Sonic Adventure isn't that fast. It rocks, sure, but there are crappier games (Sonic Advance 2) that are much faster. Seriously, play Adventure 2; I don't think I'll ever find a zone as cool as Final Rush. In 3-D, at least

I forgot to say:

•Pokémon online would be God
•Nintendo has the newfound capacity to own the Hentai game market
•Zelda just got even better than before

Of course I know.

I didn't know that the second post would be glued right on to the first, however.

And I didn't actually edit the first because I had put it up more than 24 hours prior.

Just the sort of person I am.

How the hell can you compare that controller to an Eye toy? Eye toy was just a fun gimmick that involved popping bubbles and shit with your hands. This thing is more like a mouse that you don't have to roll on a flat surface... I think.

It is gimmicky-looking, however. Though even Sony and Microsoft can be accused of that with their new systems.

I think it looks stupid

You have any idea of how many controllers they make until they have the final one? I’m sure someone will punch those dudes and make them do a better one.

Anyone who wants to punch a Nintendo exec is going to have to go through <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reggie_FIl ... >Reggie</a> first.
