It's been a Mario Kart 8 weekend in the Davidson house. Nintendo sent review copies of the upcoming Wii U entry in this long running franchise out super early, and I've been putting it through its paces constantly since Friday.

We'll be producing a few looks at the game in video form, the first of which you see at the head of this post. The only real restraint that we have in coverage is keeping our total video amount recorded and published to 20 minutes total. Once we hit that threshold, we're done until after release.

If you've been keeping up on the game and want to see any specific tracks or characters, let me know. I'm exactly halfway through clearing all the cups on all the speeds, though I imagine that will be done entirely today.

We might not release the next episodes of the Mario Kart 8 previews directly on this site, so be sure to subscribe to the gaming specific YouTube channel if you want to keep up with this stuff.

We'll have more on the game as it comes. Expect are review in a couple of weeks. Until then, WAAAAHOOOOO, etc.
