Mario Kart 8 was playable at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, here’s some fresh gameplay FGTV and some ever professional commentary from Team VVV’s Alan Boiston.

Who’d of thought there would be so much management gossip in the world of Mario Kart. This is definitely worth a watch.

    Why do people always suck so hard when playing games on these off screen demos?!

    It’s like they handed the pad to my mum or something!

    “oh, which one am I? What does this button do?”

    Nice try troll… The gliding stuff isn’t the only innovation… There is also an ‘Orange turtle’ shell weapon added… How does it feel to look like an idiot?

    I played it a EG and loved it, I don’t really need any radical departures to the game, it was fun as usual in multiplayer and looked fantastic as an added bonus. I think the motion controls have been vastly improved but the standard method is still the way to go.

    @3 – Gliding was in Mario Kart 7 ;)

    These types of games usually don’t generate a lot of innovation. It’s usually just new tracks, new racers, new weapons or new modes.

    I actually played this at E3 and it was a lot of fun. Definitely worth buying if you own a Wii U.

    @13 – Some people just haters…

    Hi everyone! It seems that everyone has always played Mario. When Dandy was popular each kid played it, after that Nintendo version of Mario appeared, PC and Mac were also used for playing Mario as well as gaming consoles today. Well, that also refers to me :) Still enjoy this Mario theme
