    Alrighty... In mk7, EXACTLY half were retro, not about :3, and that, frankly, is awesome. It's better than Double Dash and prior where you had 16 courses. (Not saying' any of these games are better 'n double dash because that isn't possible, especially with all this 'item rebalancing' crap.) Now they throw in old ones with new graphics. (Now in mk8, they've added in fancy hang gliders and antigravity and such, which I actually don't like ... The most faithful course in the retro cups was moo moo meadow, which was the same, but with one glider spot and some übzor HD cowz.)

    ...Sugar rush influence.... that's all I have to say...

    This sounds like a bunch of great ideas to me, nice article. I especially agree with the track maker idea. Some games really feel 100% better when you can see all the ideas from other players, and I think Mario kart would be great for that.

    Here's some things I want in the Mario Kart U game(in order): 1. Make a Course Maker, that would be totally awesome! >=) 2. BRING BACK WALUIGI! 3. MAKE THE GAMES A MILLION TIMES HARDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4. Get some of the rival companies(Sega and Konami) to put their character in the game, like Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 5. Put some other Nintendo characters into the game, like Link and Pikachu. 6. PUT IN MORE RETRO COURSES! I get bored of the old courses because there isn't even that many. l=/ 6. Make a storyline, like Bowser kidnapping Peach(except a little less obvious).
  • mariozeldapikachudud - December 2, 2012 5:09 p.m.

    1 more thing! 7. Add more items!
  • chaoswanderer - November 28, 2012 11:43 p.m.

    I would love to get rid of the position sensitive items. I hated mario kart wii because I was always in first and only got bananas. I want variety no matter what position I am in.
  • JamesRadar - November 26, 2012 11:15 a.m.

    i want to push buttons on the game pad, like the mach five from speed racer!

    Seven things I want: 1. No old tracks. Why does Nintendo think we want these? We probably own the previous games, and we can play them one those games. 2. Actually do something interesting with the game. Literally every Mario Kart is the exact same, aside from Double Dash. 3. Be better then Mario Kart Wii. Mario Kart Wii was a piece of crap. 4. Be better then Mario Kart 7. Mario Kart 7 was ALSO a piece of crap. 5. Bring back Waluigi, get rid of the bee and Lakitu. Why wasn't Waluigi in Mario Kart 7? That was a BIG mistake Nintendo. 6. Better customization, or none at all. If you aren't going to put any effort into the customization, why have it at all? 7. Stop making Mario games. We need games that star characters people actually want games about. Make Wario games, make Luigi games, make anything but more Mario games.

    You're an idiot. Everyone wants old tracks, that's why Nintendo remakes these, stupid. What's the point in playing an old course on an OLD game(besides Double Dash) when you can play a NEW AND IMPROVED version of the course with new characters and karts! Another thing, I agree with you on the fact that Mario Kart 7 is a piece of crap, but NOT Mario Kart Wii, that game rocked! You're right, they should have a different Mario Kart game, like another Double Dash!! cuz that rocked! Waluigi should DEFINITLY be in the next Mario Kart game, as you said. Better customization would be helpful. They do need a Super Luigi or Super Wario Bros, maybe even a Super Waluigi Bros!

    I'd also like to see 'outside' characters in Mario Kart U-Turn; Angela merkel, Kenneth Williams and Colonel Sanders are all figures that immediately sprint to mind. Let's hope...
  • zombi3grim - November 25, 2012 8:05 a.m.

    All of these suggestions are very good. Nintendo should browse this site from time to time for ideas, lol.
  • JarkayColt - November 25, 2012 5:53 a.m.

    Some really nice points here, I agree with all of them except the "old courses as DLC" one. The 50/50 approach so far is great and who's to say they can't add more NEW tracks as DLC too? Or, to take a different angle, would there even be any point if the game had a level editor? The DLC could be more environment templates and things. Also, one thing I really missed in MK7 was a "quick/single race" mode. In MKDS/Wii you could set up races with your own custom settings, but in 7 you were stuck either playing the Grand Prix or Time Trial (at least in single player anyway.) Also I would like to see the 'sticky' blue shell come back. That is to say, the version that would wait on the track for someone to drive by if you threw it backwards. That way, players might like to use it to stall people tailing them rather than hitting the person in front. Also, it NEEDS a backwards function because if you end up with it whilst in 1st (it happens) you just shoot yourself.

    More characters, more new tracks, make the Blue Shell only available in last and second-to-last place, bring back the Boo (the ghost that rendered you invisible, invincible and stole an item) so people can DODGE the Blue Shell, reduce rubberbanding A.I. because it's a pain to get hit by a Blue Shell in 1st place and have like 6 racers fly by as you fall, bring character-exclusive items from Double Dash, keep the retor cups because those are fun ^_^
  • Ectoman - November 25, 2012 2:33 a.m.

    Bring back the Double Dash concept from the GameCube; quite simply the best Maza kart... Period!
  • cokelogic - November 24, 2012 9:14 p.m.

    The mandatory Mario Kart game? How about a new idea.
  • zombi3grim - November 25, 2012 8:02 a.m.

    New ideas dont exist. Everything is based off of something else.
  • rainn'sgaydar - November 24, 2012 8:37 p.m.

    I like the retro courses, but they're running out of really good retro courses to use. Would love to see Yoshi's Valley (MK64) come back though. All the alternate paths were fun to me. Other than that, I'd like to see some new items, or the return of old ones, like the ghost and leaf. The leaf because it opens new possibilities for accessing shortcuts. The ghost because it adds a wrinkle and gives incentive to use items you may normally save for a specific area of a track (like a mushroom for access to a shortcut or the aforementioned leaf).
  • Elgyem - November 24, 2012 8:32 p.m.

    Put some more thought into the roster. We need more characters with more customization options. Also, please make sure that the character selection actually makes sense. NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE BEE QUEEN!
