Game Help / MarioKart 8 Learning Curve
« Last post by n64forever on May 05, 2016, 08:07:13 PM »
I am a veteran of the MarioKart platform, having played every game in the series with the exception of MK7 for the 3DS (for the simple reason that I don't have a 3DS).

For the most part, I have had a lot of success with these games--against the CPU, against other human players, and against the online players when the Wii virtual console was still up.

MarioKart 8 seems to be a different story.

I was a little late to the Wii U party, mostly because I wasn't sure if I would play with a new console a lot. After a breakup a while ago, I figured video games would be a good thing to clear my head, so I treated myself to one at Christmas. It came with MarioKart 8 already included, a definite perk for a longtime fan of the series.

Trouble is, aside from playing at low levels like 50cc against the CPU, I seem to be having zero success with this game. I consistently come in last or close to it against virtual console players. I can't beat any of my friends. Yes, I do know how to do the slides and mini turbos. I know I don't play it every day, but I've never been this awful at a MarioKart game.

Is there some trick to mastering this game? Does it just have a steeper learning curve?

For a few moments the order confirmation e-mail.

I actually did look at the main site, as well. A bunch of the images don't load, such as the "featured" images (in the pipe graphic on the main page), and I'm not entirely sure why. The old splash pages worked well enough, except for, again, an image here or there not displaying.

I'm sure the main site works fine, seeing as it's a site from 1997.

Or one of the old splash pages... If you know where to see them.
