Which Mario Kart was your favorite?  photo
Which Mario Kart was your favorite?
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Nintendo UK released this history of Mario Kart video, detailing the history of the beloved racing franchise. It's a short little look at the Mario Kart games, and really a giant ad for Mario Kart 8, but it's enough to get my nostalgia boner flowing with wonderful memories.

I seriously got goosebumps when I heard the Mario Kart 64 theme. Wasn't expecting it at all, but it made me yearn for my youth. For me it was my favorite entry in the series. What about you? And hey, let's share our least liked Mario Kart too. For me it's between Double Dash and Mario Kart Wii.

Nintendo has released all the cup and track names for Mario Kart 8, along with little video snippets of each track. Or you can watch this video by YouTuber Nintendomination that takes all the video previews and makes on giant 34-minute long video to save you the hassle.

Plus there's a video preview of all the playable characters too, along with a look at how, uh, lame the battle mode is now. Battle mode looks to take place on courses, which seems like it'll make the versus stuff more tedious than fun.

Mario Kart 8: What's old is new and what's new is old  photo
Mario Kart 8: What's old is new and what's new is old
by Steven Hansen

Mario Kart 8 has unveiled two "new" characters. They are Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach. What the heck, right? You're probably rolling your eyes at the lack of surprise with Baby Rosalina (who's joining Baby Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Daisy), but Pink Gold Peach?

Think Metal Mario, but a more precious, royal metal (gold) and then pink because femininity is pink even though I'm wearing a pink shirt right now and I am super manly. Seriously. I am eating a pound of salami and a half pound of cheese for lunch.

Best Buy offers gasoline as a Mario Kart 8 pre-order incentive

Retailers have really been stepping up their pre-order game lately. It used to be that plopping down money early for a title meant getting a character skin or some other half-assed, unimportant content. Between the likes of a...

Preview: Grid Autosport's San Francisco needs steeper hills
by Steven Hansen

Hot on the heels of last year's GRID 2, Codemasters is coming back with GRID Autosport, a "celebration of pure, unadulterated motorsport." This is going to be less of an arcade racer than GRID 2 ended up being, but without drifting too far into stodgy simulation either.

We'll see if the middle ground pleases anyone on June 24. It did please me, though, despite the insurmountable damage I did to all of the cars. I am a much better driver in real life.
