Could Mario Kart 8 Be The Worst Selling Game In the Series?

April 21, 2014 1 comment

Mario Kart Wii

The Mario Kart franchise has been one of the most successful selling franchises Nintendo has ever created. It started back on the Super Nintendo and has made one appearance on every console Nintendo has released since that time. You can pretty much bet that if a Nintendo system is sold it will have a Mario Kart game on it. Many people would even label it one of the best games that could be considered a system seller for the company. It’s so successful that it has been one of the best selling, if not THE best selling game on systems for the last two generations.

Recently the question was posed as to whether or not Mario Kart 8 could be the worst selling game in the franchise and could it potentially be bad enough to kill the franchise. I, personally, am not sure it would do that poorly, but it was an interesting question none-the-less and so I decided to do a little bit of research.

Yet again, Tony and I embark on a journey to spread video game knowledge around the world.  Thankfully, the knowledge spreads smooth and creamy like some sort of manufactured cheese.  Eww.  This week’s show is all about board games, Super Mario Kart and dolphins.  Then, the moment has finally arrived.  I sit in The Hot Seat and Tony grills me on Metroid games.  How will I do?  Will I pull a Tony?  I can’t tell you now because it will spoil it but I will say this, things don’t go so well.  Listen!

The Question Block – 58
Round 1 – NES Board Game Music
Round 2 – Super Mario Kart
Round 3 – Follow That Dolphin
Round 4 – Metroid (Shelby)

Go Round – Battle Assault 3 Featuring Gundam Seed

January 4, 2012 2 comments

I love Gundams.  I have them all over my house.  I love the first two Battle Assault games.  This one however, I do not like.  In fact, I think Battle Assault 3 Featuring Gundam Seed is the worst game I have ever played for a Go Round.  This game is so bad Will plays his 3DS and Josh plays on his iPhone DURING THE GO ROUND!  Ugh, just watch and see for yourself.

Nintendo Okie Podcast – Episode 97

January 4, 2012 2 comments

Better late than never right?  We didn’t want to go two weeks without a podcast but with all the New Year stuff going on, we had a hard time getting a show together.  I had a hard time editing it too.  Mostly due to Saints Row: The Third.  Anyway, two days late, here is episode 97 of the Okie Cast.  We recorded in two chunks; one with Tony and myself then one with Tony and Micah.  We don’t talk about any news, instead just games we have been playing and we review our 2011 year in review articles that went up all last week.  Happy new year, everybody.  Let’s hope the world doesn’t come to an end.

Starring – Tony, Micah, Shelby
Run time – 2:15:35
