Hang in there
Oh, Mario Kart 7! I want to like you. I really do! I am just not sure I can take your blue shells and nonsensical rubber band AI anymore. And hey, I know this is not an original complaint by any means. But I swear, it feels like these issues have become more and more pronounced with each iteration of the series. Either that, or it just took a few games to really wear away at me. But I mean, it's... it's just not very fun to suddenly be thrust from 1st to 5th place at the last second due to some uncontrollable, unavoidable random attack from a computer-controlled players. I mean, right? This is not a controversial opinion, is it? No one enjoys that. Do they?
I don't know. But for the good of my sanity, I think I am just going to abandon the single player campaign and stick to playing with other humans. At least when it's a friend dumping crazy overpowered items on you, it can be kind of funny! Or honestly, maybe I should just go back to Sonic and the Sega All Stars Racing. It may be one of the most shameless, shameless rip-offs of all time (green boxing gloves and red rockets?), and it may be responsible for unleashing the historically nonsensical concept that is Sonic driving a car... but it was a fun solid racer, and felt a lot more balanced than any of the past few Nintendo affairs. Ack!
Victorians! (By which I mean citizens of Victoria, BC, not time travellers from the 1800s.) Shannon and I will be in your general vicinity for Gottacon starting this Friday at 5pm! And so will Alina from Weregeek! If you're going to be at the show, come by our booth and say hello! We will be bringing a mighty assortment of comic books, art prints, t-shirts and other crazy crap. And we will also be drawing stuff because, you know... cartoonists.
