Now playing...

Mario Kart Wii!

We may be late to LOST, but we're up to speed (so to speak) on the Wii, specifically Mario Kart Wii, the latest in Nintendo's popular go-cart series. The game adds the following elements to the already fun formula:
*New characters: Baby Peach, Funky Kong, Rosalina, Dry Bowser, and Baby Daisy
*Pictures of Mii people on various backgrounds
*An enclosed steering wheel
*Motorcycles to race
*New items (including POW blocks, which shake the ground)
*16 new tracks (plus 16 remade tracks from previous installments)
*Up to twelve racers
*Online capabilities
*And much more

Ryan, who bought the game with some Christmas (!) money he had left over, tries out the steering wheel, which he says works great (a viewpoint I agree with).

Mario in action.
