Sounds like me playing with my friends :lol:.I remember playing Mario Kart Wii for a couple of years with my old friends. It was truly fun, especially when each of us, in four-player mode, used to cover with hands or other weird objects that lurked in my house, each other's little screen on tv. It was totally hillarius!
I didn't think Mario Kart Wii was all that great. Certainly not terrible, but not great. The motion controls were annoying and the game was far too easy with a GameCube controller. The computer players were just plain bad.
Mario Kart 8 is phenomenal. Very diverse levels, good roster, new items/mechanics, and it's beautiful to look at.
