Mario Kart 8 DLC Delivers, Fails On Price Parity

An untimely listing spotted on the Nintendo UK website Tuesday let slip details of planned downloadable content (DLC) for Wii U hit Mario Kart 8.

The webpage details how classic Nintendo character Link from The Legend of Zelda series will surprisingly be made available as a racer in one of two upcoming DLC packs. A range of new tracks, characters and karts were also revealed ahead of schedule, with plenty of callbacks to other well known Nintendo franchises such as Animal Crossing, Excitebike and F-Zero.

However, it wasn’t only the content that got spotted early — both the release schedule and pricing for the DLC was also erroneously on show.

Who Cares About 1080P & 60FPS? I Sure Don’t

Maybe it’s just me, but I find the ongoing obsession with discussing and dissecting every game apart to see if it holds up to the seemingly ‘holy grail’ metric of 1080p and 60 frames-per-second thoroughly dull.

The ‘attaining’ of these numbers are always being debated on forums, columns and news articles across the gaming web. Yes, obviously the strive to push the industry forward technologically is a wholly valid and worthwhile goal, but it’s also one that at times is downright boring.

Endless articles berating a game for not quite offering up a consistent 60 frames-per-second or not looking quite sharp enough are everywhere.

EA Announce New Gaming Subscription Service — Nintendo Should Do The Same

EA announced a new subscription service Wednesday, giving those willing to pay a monthly fee unlimited access to a select library of games. Nintendo should do the same.

EA’s offer is this: pay £3.99 per month and you gain access to a handful of hit games to play, such as FIFA, Madden and Battlefield. The service goes by the name of ‘EA Access’ — you can think of it as a mix between Netflix and PlayStation Plus. If you stop paying, you stop playing.

Currently in beta, EA’s new service is open to Xbox One owners only for now. Those who sign up will find they  have access to just four games to start with — those are Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and Peggle 2.

Although the service is in its infancy, and some may have doubts about it, the basic idea is a sound one — I mean, the days of owning physical games are numbered anyway right? So what should Nintendo be doing?
