Luigi's death glare moves 885,000 US Mario Kart copies

C'mon, you're going to tell me that's not what's doing it? What, is it that Mario Kart 8 is fun? That it's familiar? That it's a Mario Kart game? Nope. All Luigi, baby. That's what you get in 2 anno Luigi. No matter the ...

There's a commercial for those McDonald's Mario Kart toys now

None of these strategies helped me win at Mario Kart 8

I've fought the urge to buy a Wii U specifically for Wind Waker HD for the better part of a year now. After a strong E3 by Nintendo and a convenient Mario Kart 8 promotion, I finally relented. Between flipping throu...

What's your favorite Mario Kart 8 track?

For me, it's unquestionably Mount Wario. The snowy setting, the fact that it's all one giant course, that final adrenaline rush of a descent down the slopes toward the finish line -- I love it so much. But there are quite a f...
