Mario Kart 7/8: Thoughts And Decision?

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 16, 2014, 1:09 PM
Skin by TMNT-Raph-fan

Because I'm now starting to feel much better about myself after dealing with my holiday depression not too long ago, I feel like wanting to talk about something that's been on my mind lately before I forget... As everyone may probably know after reading my journal entries, I was able to purchase myself a Nintendo WiiU a couple of months ago, which I was also able to get a couple of games for it: "DuckTales: Remastered" and "New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U". After Christmas is over with for this year, I plan on saving up my money that I get each month to buy at least one new game to add to my WiiU collection (as long as it's a game within my monthly budget), and I might also purchase a new game for my 3DS collection as well. One of the titles that I was considering of getting for my Nintendo WiiU was "Mario Kart 8", which happens to be the newest game in the Mario Kart series, even though I actually did kind of miss out on getting "Mario Kart 7" for the Nintendo 3DS, mainly because I didn't have a 3DS at the time of its release, and I was able to buy a Nintendo 2DS after saying up my money and getting a copy of "Pokemon Y" on the month it came out. Now, I've heard about the kind of new features that are included in "Mario Kart 7" such as the option to customize your own vehicle as well as the abilities that allows vehicles to fly in the air and race underwater, but I've also heard a few negative things about the game that I've become aware of before I decide to buy it; For example, I've noticed that the selection of playable characters is actually kinda slim when compared to the character roster from "Mario Kart Wii" on the Nintendo Wii (especially since certain characters such as Diddy Kong and Walugi are not playable in the game at all), and I've even heard some people say that the game is also pretty hard when playing against the CPU, which makes unlocking things quite difficult for solo gamers such as myself. Because of "Mario Kart 8" being out for the Nintendo WiiU not too long ago, I was actually thinking of getting a copy of that game without having to play "Mario Kart 7" first, especially since I was able to complete "Mario Kart Wii" on my own (although I still need help unlocking Baby Luigi and Funky Kong as playable characters), and I was kind of hoping that Nintendo may have toned down the difficulty just a little for the newest game in their popular racing game series that I still enjoy playing to this day. But before I make such a decision to buy either game for myself, I'm going to need the opinions and advice of everyone else who is able to play one or both of the MK games that I haven't played yet so that I'll know which title is better, and I might even be able to play a few rounds with my friends online whenever I get some internet connection for my home. Anyway, which is the better title: "Mario Kart 7" on the Nintendo 3DS, or "Mario Kart 8" on the Nintendo WiiU?

CURIOUS QUESTION TIME: Do you usually read the descriptions for each picture that is posted on dA? 

36 deviants said Sometimes, it all depends on what the description is all about.
35 deviants said Yes, I find them to be just as interesting as the picture it describes.
2 deviants said No, I think reading is so boring...

Even though I am actually done with all my Christmas-themed artwork for this year, I suppose I can join your holiday project as well. :)

I had this dream that Whitnee went through a portal to the Tuff puppy universe and meets her Tuff Agent self.  Pretty cool don't you think?

Yeah, I was actually thinking of doing a set of pictures involving both versions of Whitnee Squirrel being able to interact with each other in some way while also being able to show the differences between both characters, which I might be able to do sometime after New Years' Day. :nod:
