While I don’t doubt that they have their fans, the likes of Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario, Tanooki Mario and Pink Gold Peach are generally pretty unpopular choices for Mario Kart characters. Nonetheless, each new game gives us more ‘clone’ characters, and I use the word clone literally to mean another version of the same person. […]Read More

The Best and Worst of Mario Kart

Nintendo often gets criticised for releasing the ‘same games’ over and over again and Mario Kart is perhaps a very obvious example of that. I find that each Mario Kart is quite a unique experience and each has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. As somebody who has played through all of them (not including […]Read More
