Polygon Reviews Mario Kart 8

Speaking of Nintendo, Philip Kollar reviews the new Mario Kart 8 for Wii U:

While the intricacies of drifting and boosting are rote by this point for long-time Kart players, Mario Kart 8 drives home the brilliance of this system. It’s simple — you’re just pressing one button and adjusting your angle to make sure you don’t run off the track — but it looks cool and made me feel skillful when I pulled it off. It also forced me to constantly be engaged with a track. I couldn’t just memorize a layout and be safe; I was constantly tweaking and improving my approach to each lap.

Can’t wait for this one.
