Nintendo World Championships 2017

Do you want to be… the VERY best?


#579 – Nintendo World Championships are returning – completely out of nowhere! Not during E3, not for the launch of a game (that we know of), just randomly. And the qualifiers begin soon! Simeon is here with his new dog Buttercup to discuss the event’s return and its odd choice of preliminary game, Mario Kart 7. What do you think – are you excited to watch the event? Let us know!

Mario Kart Woes & Zelda Whoas

We’ve got better games to play than Mario Kart! Close your eyes and pick something off the eShop.


#510 – Zelda Breath of the Wild is a tough act to follow, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe certainly falls short in that regard. The racing game has its charm and its place in the Switch owners’ collection, but it also has some major design problems that frustrate the player, and makes them want to go back to Zelda!

What If Mario Kart Was Real Life?

Lakitu save us.


As gamers, it can be easy to let fantasies of game worlds spill into our daily lives. One of those situations takes place behind the wheel. Have you ever wanted a red shell for that jerk in front of you on the highway? Things would sure be a lot more interesting on the road if drivers were given Mario Kart items and Mario Kart rules to play by. Imagine with us!

What’s New in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, home of the lone cheap Switch accessory.


Mario Kart 8 is getting a facelift, and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch! In another show of Nintendo listening to their fans, they’ve completely updated Battle Mode in this entry of their kart racer series, while throwing in a bunch of extra characters, karts, and modes. All of the changes can be a bit hard to keep track of, and that’s why Simeon and Scott have gathered a comprehensive list for your convenience!

Switch Games – Remakes/Updates/Sequels?

SplaTWOn, coming to a Nintendo Switch near you, March 2017!


We saw a good handful of games during the Nintendo Switch reveal trailer, but it wasn’t exactly clear which ones were new games and which ones are making a return from the Wii U console. We look at all the clues and present compelling cases for which games are new and which ones are definitive editions!

#5: Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Pt. 2

I find it ironic that in trying to break it less, we broke it more…


We’re going back to Double Dash to see if we can break it a little bit less than last time, and… well… Let’s see what happens!

#4: Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

I think the map is actually more helpful that way.


What are all these messed up color blobs?? Why, it’s Mario Kart Double Dash, of course!

Favorite Mario Kart Tracks

Everyone has their favorite Mario Kart track. These are ours.

From the busy halls of the Coconut Mall to the treacherous slopes of Grumble Volcano, the Mario Kart series has had some great racecourses. These are some of Scott and Simeon’s favorites.
