This fan-made video has me pining for a real Mario Kart 8 battle mode

After following up 7, Mario Kart 8 was a breath of fresh air. I loved playing it for months on end, there was just one major problem -- the "battle mode" sucked. I called Nintendo "out of their mind" back in 2014, and I stand by that s...   read

After five years, Nintendo discounts an uneven list of 3DS games
