I think this looks incredible. This is what Nintendo should shoot for with all their cartoony games. Looks like a blast...

Colourful games look really great in HD. I wonder why so few developers make them.

"hitting next year"..and that seemed to be Nintendo's message this E3. If this was out this year for Christmas it would shift aload of units for them. Gamers don't hold much hope for the wii-u at the moment but when you consider you can pick one up right now for £150 new (more than half the price of the ps4) I still think Nintendo will have a decent Christmas.. just would help having decent games out at the same time.

I was specting nothing for the new Mario Kart but... in the end, it has been a great surpise. The game looks very polished, with great graphics and lighting! Ah, and rock solid 60fps, even in split screen. Must be very fun to play online, waiting for it :)

Certainly the best looking Wii-U game to date. It's amazing what good lighting can do. It's too bad Mario 3D World is nowhere near as pretty.

Mazza Kart in HD and smooth as shit from a duck's arse.

Must have, along with the new Mario World, Nintendo does it again with their unmissable third party titles, there is a Wii U in my future. I was acutely disappointed not to see an HD Metroid Prime though, or to learn Retro is making another Kong game.

About the game

    KORNdog it is the sort of thing my work would buy just to make the office look nicer. the boss (apple fanboy) has always hated that the 3D team use PC's because they don't look nice. haha (56 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @alimokrane: i'm not convinced tbh. but as i say, if i was spending 4k i wouldn't be buying that anyway. you can get a better machine and a cintiq for less. (57 minutes ago)

    KORNdog even if the hinge is super stiff it will move if you lean on it. but then you saw the woman drawing on it weirdly anyway, keeping her hands off the screen. does it have palm cancelling? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: The articulating hinge feels smooth. The display stays in place no matter what angle you choose while the screen stays steady even as you press down on it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: how can you be sure? there is no clamp system like my cintiq? which locks in an angle and makes it rock solid. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: It wasnt meant to answer your question. It was just more info as you replied :) I am sure it works just fine re your question (1 Hour ago)
