Games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Party and Smash Bros (with items) discourage competition. Nintendo needs to make it easier for players to git g00d or however the kids say it.

butt touch (づ￣ ³￣)づ (___)___)
Your idea of "mastery" must be staying on the track. If you take effective racing lines, no amount of redshells will matter. If the middle of your bellcurve is using mediocre lines to try and cling to first place, you deserve to get blasted. Sincerely. I'm not even trying to be cruel, but basic is basic: Stay basic.
I don't think I ever experienced this curve in Mario Kart 8. and I'm really good. When I play online I usually stay top 2. I'm not trying to brag, i literally suck at all video games but I Mario kart 8 I'm just always up there both online and against all my friends and don't remember ever experiencing "punishment" for getting good. You just have to use your items wisley, and know the tracks well to drift at every opportunity you can, along with using shortcuts, plus picking the kart optionsthat works best for you :)
_How to win Mario Kart:_
_#1: Stay at the starting line, and let everyone else pass you. When the person in first place passes you going into their lap 2, start driving._
_#2: Make sure to hit an item box. You will get either a Bullet Bill or Golden Mushroom._
_#3: Begin closing distance. This will happen extremely quickly._
One thing i hate about spatoob 2 is that wen you play online you could be level 5 and go against someone who is level 83 there should be a system where low level players a mached up with other low level payers and high level players get mached up with other high level players eather that or i just suck
I for one am glad that Mario Kart On-line doesn't have voice-chat, or any other form of manual text input... I can but imagine what things people are screaming at their screens when getting blue-shelled'...
I think MK could be fixed like this:
The red shell,instead of going to a player,it continues on the middle of the road,so players go on the other lane to avoid it.
The blue shell could be replaced with an item like “Slow bomb” that makes the 3 first racers slow down their top speed for 10 seconds.
gamexplain had a vid showing luigi being controlled by A.I. for the player and they did literally nothing the whole run and got 1st place............
another vid same shit happened for a mario party game, sooo yeah wulf is right. nintendo's games fuck over skilled players
The only thing I hate about this game is sometimes it feels like the game takes over control. Especially when I want to take a sudden turn when your at those points with a choice of two paths to take. It feels weird and can't explain it. Just feels like the game controls your character for a few seconds. Oh and getting damn coins with every powerup gets old fast.
There's this thing when you finally get to be an expert at mario kart all fun is stripped from the game and all it is is fighting with two other people for 1st place in online lobbies with bananas,red shells,and green shells as the only items.
I’m not sure why, but MK8 Deluxe has slightly harder CPUs compared to MK8 on the Wii U. It’s odd, I thought Nintendo would use the same CPU system, but it seems like they tinkered with it. Either way, everything else is fine.
A pro technique I use is sandbag where I stay in low spots for the 2 laps and then in 3rd lap I zoom ahead...though this won’t work all the time but it sure is fun
And another technique I use is front run where I try to get away from the crowd from the start of the race asap this will work almost all times on Mario kart 8 d and I use this as my secondary technique
One thing I don’t do is stay in middle that’s terrible
UGh STRESS! WHAT GAME ON CHRISTMAS SHOULD I PLAY THE MOST?
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (online, Time Trials and 150cc Grand Prix)
Fire Emblem Warriors (History Mode grinding)
Minecraft (you know wyat)
Also, that Mario Kart Wii clip is so TRUE! and i hate it too
For me, an issue I had in Mario Kart 7 was when I was playing against the CPU's, I would always stay in first just from how I naturally played. Because of this, all the action happened behind me and at times it was boring.
I have never cussed over a video game as much as I have for both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS. I say words I am highly ashamed of, even though nobody is around to hear the bombs I drop over these games.
The problem I have, is when they expect you to keep in first place with a fast time for all the races in every grand prix. It doesn't make any sense, because Mario Kart discourages mastery. I can't even strategize, since you have to have a consistently fast time (by staying in first place), in order to get the max rating and unlock everything. It just makes me scream, "MAKE UP YOUR MIND!"
I don't mind items in Mario Kart in general.
But when you have to come first to unlock stuff. And you are first all race, get three feet from the finish line, and still finish last due to the infinite barrage of shells.... that shit is annoying.
it only frustrates me in 150cc and up when you're playing alone AND YOU JUST WANNA GET ALL 3 STAR GOLD TROPHIES BUT YOU KEEP GETTING GANKED AT THE FINISH LINE BY 3 FUCKING RED SHELLS 2 BLUE SHELLS AND A LIGHTNING BOLT! ON THE SAME DAMN RACE!!!!! but yeah it's fun X3
I to be honest stopped playing Mario Kart or such games,Realizing no matter how good Id do,some bull%^)# will keep me from so.
I'm not a competitive guy like most who play comp,but I like to play the game straight,not have some dumb mechanic,balances,or even luck to handhold me for doing poorly...and even not want to learn if they punish me for being skillful.
I like to earn my way up somewhat in such games with multiplayer to enjoy it and face those better than me.
It isn't fun to constantly Lose. I'm not wanting to win all the time though,just actually put a effort.
To me I think
This is why the first Sega All-Stars Racing is better than Mario Kart. Things like the horn, the speed shoes and the shield allow players to avoid the blue and red shell equivalents. Freaking love that game, so much fun and pretty much never unfair or frustrating.
Another thing that really frustrates me is when I'm in dead last and really need those good items, but that's when I only get bull crap like triple mushrooms in a course with extremely sharp turns instead of something useful like a bullet bill or a lightning that actually would help me to catch up when I'm half a lap behind the person in front of me
The thing that pisses me off about the Blue shell (or Spiny Shell if you want to be anal about it) is that it doesn't really serve the person who throws it. It just ends up giving 2nd or 3rd place a better chance of winning. Grrrrrr!!!!
I have a huge issue with competitive smash bros. I'll play final destination with no items with my friends all day, but that's because they don't play "competitively." They don't wave dash around the stage and edge guard the entire time. They don't spam the same move because it has less frames in the animation than most attacks in the game. That's not fun that's just sweaty and not how the game was meant to be played. I find it ridiculous that using glitches and exploits is widely accepted in competitive smash bros. It's sad that people don't use certain characters because they want to have every advantage over their opponent rather than just...having a little bit of fun with friends.
