Unsurprisingly, Mario Kart 8 on the Switch is just as rage inducing as every other Mario Kart.
Part of the fun of my holidays recently was reacquainting myself with precisely how much fun going from first to 10th in a single corner can be. And that's the general gist of dunkey's latest video. Red shells and blue shells were already annoying enough - so why not give people a second one?
Before, getting nailed at the finish was all too real. Now, you're lucky if you don't get slammed by four or five green/red shells in succession.
For the record, I don't actually mind the second weapon that much. The item usage, at least for me, has been so aggressive that it's made lighter, nimbler characters more playable. Previously it was all about picking the fastest, heaviest characters - but now smaller fry like Peach and the baby lineups actually seem viable. And at the very least, the acceleration helps after you get hit.
