Today Marks the One-Year Anniversary of Mario Kart 8

It's been one full year of loop-de-loops, gliders, coins, and death stares, and the most popular entry in the Mario Kart franchise since Mario Kart 64 is showing no signs of slowing down...

... unless you're playing 200cc, in which case, you should probably slow down.

Watch Dogs and Mario Kart are numbers one and two in sales this week, and both are doing great things for their companies. Watch Dogs sold 4 million copies in its first week, breaking Ubisoft's record and becoming its best selling game in its first week. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 sold 1.2 million copies in its first weekend. 82% of those sold in the UK were bundled with a Wii U. In a statement, Reggie Fils-Aime said, "The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead. This year's E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!"

Nintendo is Dropping a Ton of New DLC This April

April's Nintendo Direct brought us news of a ton of new DLC for several games. Unfortunately there was no news about Zelda Wii U, but hopefully E3 2015 will give us more information. But it's all good, because Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. Wii U are getting some serious add-ons!

Before you panic and try to preorder it, know that it's just the software and collectable blue shell, not a Wii U bundle. No news yet as to whether or not North America will have a similar special edition version of the game.

A bunch of pranksters dressed up as Mario Kart characters and went to their local mall for a quick race.

How Rezephos flew through Super Mario World without getting a single mushroom, fire flower, cape, star, or Yoshi...we may never know. There were some truly miraculous achievements at Summer Games Done Quick 2016 this year. These are some of our favorites:

Catherine

I don't understand this game, yet I find myself intrigued. Catherine's a puzzle-platformer for Xbox 360 and PS3. You play as a laid back dude named Vince Brooks who dates a lady named Katherine, only to end up falling into a love affair with a sex kitten named Catherine. See what they did there? Juggling two love interests almost always gives way to a full-fledgted sh*tstorm, but 'Ghoul02' upped the ante by playing through the game using two controllers at once.


Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

In this run, 'druvan7' gases up and destroys the All Cup Tour in speed demon fashion.
