    Not hyperbole. This could be the best game of all time.

    I saw half of the Nintendo Direct For April. Yoshi's Wolly World demonstrated that it is going be a lot better than I originally thought. The yarn yoshi amiibo is made out of yarn and more like a beanie baby. I want get a green one.

    The direct has me thinking that Nintendo is going to make a lot more download able content perhaps more for the Mario Party 10 to help with its criticism.

    I prefer the dark fantasy setting of the Dark Souls series, but I agree, Bloodborne is pretty fantastic.

    All the info released recently about the new Mario Kart 8 DLC makes me want to binge on that game all weekend long just like I did for the original release date. Zach, let's do this.

    I love everything Nintendo has been doing for the last year or so. My Wii U has gotten more mileage than my PS4 (until Bloodborne came out, anyway). The first party games, for the most part, have been of super high quality, namely Mario Kart, Smash Bros. Cpt. Toad was a fucking delight, especially considering the value. I was shocked by how much I loved Bayonetta 2.

    I'm not crazy about Nintendo DLC, however. Just seems... dirty. I do, however, still buy it. I am not a man of principles.

    My main priority of games to play is the Metroid Prime Trilogy right now and I haven't even started it . It takes a lot of memory space and I don't want to buy any more e shop games for my wii U till then. Affordable space trip appears to me to be the next big indie game on the Wii U. It used the gamepad in a unique way with your spaceship controls and hub.
    I have been glued to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate lately and it's really long boss battles, item gathering and gear focus game. I just got thru the Nintendo reward program Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D & Pushmo so maybe I can stay away from Hunt'N

    I started playing the original Mass Effect on PS3 this weekend and I absolutely love it! I put almost 6 hours into and there's not end in sight yet. There are definitely times where I really want to get to some action, but it's a really rewarding experience.

    The expansion for Mario Kart 8 comes out tommorrow with 8 new tracks, 3 new vehicles, and 3 new characters. Tomorrow has a free new patch for Mario Kart 8 with 200cc mode,9 more amiibo costumes comes out tomorrow,the ability to have one player play on the gamepad and the 2nd player to play on the tv, more different controllers to have the ability to have a map appear and disappear by press select, and more. The Mario Kart 8 is almost flawless and I think there's going be a DLC for the battle mode so you can play battle mode in areas instead of tracks to make Mario Kart 8 that much better.

    I am going to get Mario Kart 8 eventually! I have too huge a backlog of games. I am currently playing Mass Effect, Miami Hotline 2, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. I am hoping to finally get to Bioshock Infinite next, and I have physical versions of Ni No Kuni and Epic Mickey sitting here. I also have Yakuza 4 that I really want to check out, as well as several indie games I got from PS+ that i haven't tried yet.

    Anyone interested on hitting up some MKX battles on PS4? PM me with your ID (or just post it here if you're brave), if we get enough people we can hit up some team battles.

    If you keep an eye out you can find Mario Kart 8 sometimes pretty darn cheap, like $35. That price is rare but I've seen it.

    this new trailer has me excited.

    I have been playing the shit out of the new 200cc mode. I feel like I'm a pretty good MK8 player, and even 200cc is giving me a good challenge. The new tracks are beautiful and colorful and not boring at all. There isn't a weak track in the new track pack IMO, and adding the challenge of 200cc makes it almost seem like a totally new game.

    And also, Zack, I think you're gonna love Metroid Prime. I'm playing through the original GameCube version on my modded Wii U. I figured out how to play GameCube games on the Wii U from a thumb drive, and with a GameCube controller using the Smash Bros GameCube controller adapter. It's a phenomenal game. I haven't tried the sequels yet but I certainly plan on it in the future when I finish the first Prime game.

    Currently I cannot figure out how to play two players with one player looking at the gamepad and the other on the TV screen so it might of been an error that a video game site had typed about the latest update for Mario Kart 8. Also Mewtwo is now available to purchase if you didn't buy and register both wii u and 3ds copies of Smash 4.

    Also add Guedita on the miiverse because we also play on her screen name online sometimes.

    Yeah I got Mewtwo a couple weeks ago cause I registered my games. He might become my third choice in Smash, after Captain Falcon and Zero Suit Samus.

    Ok yeah I'll add her! What do you think of the 200cc mode?

    Right now in Smash, I like using Shulk because of the different fighting modes, I like his counter, and i'm excited to play xenoblade 3ds. My second player is Bowser Jr then if I ever really need to get serious I pick Link.

    I really don't play as much video games as I would like and I prefer playing video games then watching TV, but I've been stuck on this stupid monster hunter 4U. It's a ridiculous addicting gear hunter game and based around big boss fights. I cannot recommend it enough besides the fact it's maybe 80% of the time what I have been playing. Right now in the game I like using heavy hitting melee weapons where you run up hit the beast with a heavy hit or two or try to fumble with the combos and run away then repeat. The armor I have right now is made out of raptor skin,stomach sap, and bones but the structure remind me of some type of samurai armor.

    I really liked listening to this while driving the other day.

    Oh yeah, add me, RedHot. Though I don't really know how to manage my friends or start games with them. I think I made a huge breakthrough last night after playing 4 hours of Mario Kart online - I'm finally consistently ranking in the topper half of each race, sometimes winning or getting 2nd. I finally broke to over 2,000 points. The new Ribbon track is my favorite.
