Mario Kart 8 Customizations

Generally, I play video games on the weekends because I prefer to think about frivolity on the weekends. But then I think of something I want to share here and I forget to on the following weekend, so I’m going to share this video today before I forget. Just refer to it the next time you’re playing.

Mario Kart 8 is a blast. Toying with the character and vehicle combinations is fun while the game is still new and fresh, but if you want to get competive, like I do, then you will want to understand which characters and vehicles combined give you better performance for online races.

My favorite customization is Metal Mario with the Circuit Special kart, Azure Roller wheels, and Cloud Glider. This is an overall fast combination while maintaining some sense of style that I enjoy. Additionally, it looks intimidating, which should unnerve some of my competitors.

If you are in it for kicks, then you might not care about performance. Just drive whatever you like, right? But if you want to earn a good score online, then you need to choose combos very selectively.

On another Mario Kart related topic that I want to share before I forget… this is cool. My son’s birthday is coming up, so I might get it for mysel—I mean, for him.
