    Hey, wouldn't it be awesome if one of the MK8 vehicles was an ATV with a purple butterfly theme...?

    Yep, that's just so manly. Seriously, ask a kid on my street! He got his face painted with a purple butterfly on one cheek and a unicorn on the other!

    Does anyone know if there's still that "spam (Blue/Red) shells, lightning, bullet bills at the PC" and "get hit by a missile and forfeit your item" on 150cc? Because that's one thing I hated about MK Double Dash and Wii.

    ^ Nope, if you get hit by something or even fall, you don't lose your item. One thing I like about MK8...

    The CPU is ridiculous, though.

    Today's big MK8 news warrants a bump, does it not?

    It looks like the DLC offerings for MK8 are going to be bigger than some free Mercedes cars--Link, Animal Crossing Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser and stupid Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach like ugh please stop are all joining the shenanigans as playable characters!

    Plus some retro tracks are coming back (like Wario's Mine from MKWii) as well as some new ones (is that an Animal Crossing-themed track I see?!). There's also going to be a Blue Falcon Kart 'cause Nintendo doesn't know how to just make a new F-Zero game to represent the F-Zero series. Cool.

    Info and pics here. And note, this is DLC you have to pay for, unlike the Mercedes DLC.

    I really can't get over Link on a motorcycle (in a good way of course), but that might just be me.

    I want this DLC now. It looks amazing. I don't know if I'm more excited for the Characters or the courses. But ahhhhhhhh.

    I don't know what it is, but now I NEED MARIO KART 8!!! ...It could just be that Link's going to be playable, but that's besides the point (though I do hope and pray that (insert Pokémon's name here) will be released as DLC some time because that's as close to Pokémon Kart as I think we're going to get.)

    I somehow suspected that Link and Dry Bowser would be playable one day, but I didn't expect new tracks, so it's really nice to hear about that! I hope they'll have the high standard of the other tracks in the game.
    Sorry if my English is incorrect!

    Alright, so just a quick update: The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 (Nov 2014 release) and Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 (May 2015 release) packs each have 3 new characters, 8 new courses (split between two cups), and 4 new vehicles (!!!). And if you pre-order/purchase both packs, you get access to mega color options for both Yoshi and Shy Guy. (I think 8 new colors each?) All for the low price of USD 8/GBP 7 per pack, or USD 12/GBP 11 for the two-pack bundle! (Can't find the euro pricing yet.)

    Omg, this DLC stuff looks amazing. o__o;; Still miffed about Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach, but otherwise this looks sooo good~

    But this helps to show what amiibo can do for MK8 (at least a little bit). Now that we know Link and Animal Crossing Villager are going to be in MK8, we'll most likely be able to use Zelda and Animal Crossing amiibo figures (well, at least Link and Villager's figures) in the game, and possibly Capt. Falcon's figure, as well (we have an F-Zero kart & stage confirmed). How, we still don't know, at least MK8 may not be limited to just Mario/DK-franchise figures as I originally thought.

    I played 4 of the first 6 Mario Kart games, missing Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart Double Dash. My first game I've owned myself was Super Circuit. I lost my copy in a trailer that I rented for a few summers.

    I think today's Nintendo Direct warrants another MK8 bump, no?

    We now have all the details about the first DLC Pack for Mario Kart 8 as well as amiibo integration, which you can read about here. I'm uber-excited that SNES Rainbow Road is back! That was my second favorite track in MK7, and now I can play it in HD! ^__^ As for the amiibo integration, it's pretty lackluster in my opinion, but I also can't wait to race as Captain Falcon, sooo I guess there's that?

    Also, to celebrate the release of the DLC Pack, I was thinking we could have a Bulbagarden Mario Kart tournament going here. Maybe we could try one out this month, and possibly have more depending on attendance/interest. What do y'all think?

    I personally agree with the MK8 tourney idea, but I am curious as to how many players would be allowed per match, considering the difficuilty of getting three-twelve players together. Also, if this is tourney is made with the in-game tourney cerator, what's to stop other people intruding? Or people with the most MK8 time as opposed to actual skill dominating? Eh, either way, I hope I get a copy in time for this.
