News Editor at USgamer. M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.

    @admiralsnackbar Is that where they were from? I saw that, but couldn't get confirmation. Added!

    @mrhumble1 I mean, I don't have any visibility for your preferences, but your concerns about Friend Codes seemed to be a game-stopper for you regarding the Switch's online play and that's likely not changing anytime soon. Hence the reason I said perhaps it's not for you as a platform. I'm not trying to be dismissive when I say that and I apologize if it comes off that way.

    If you love the platform, but have issues with certain implementations, I can understand that.

    @mrhumble1 If you would prefer not to add friends via Friend Code and not play against random internet folks, I'd argue that the Switch is simply not for you as a platform.

    The lack of story-based campaign is also true of every Mario Kart since Super Mario Kart, so again, I'd say that it's just not your jam.

    @Sturat I hit up my tech people at DF and you're right, MK8 was 59fps. It's a pure 60fps this time around.

    @pdubb Nothing on either front. I'd expect Last Stand to probably come in an expansion.

    @mrhumble1 My apologies. The review assumes a certain amount of familiarity with Mario Kart as a series.

    1. Everything is available in single- and multiplayer play. Races, Battle Mode, etc. There's no functional difference and the game simply fills out the rest of any race or battle with AI players. Otherwise, there is no story campaign or anything.

    2. You are misinformed. Nintendo's global online infrastructure is not online yet, meaning their built-in matchmaking system using Nintendo Accounts. This is separate from general online play. Online functionality has been present on the system since launch, notably in Super Bomberman R and Fast RMX. It's just done in-game by the developer, not on the system level. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shares the same online functionality and matchmaking as Mario Kart 8.

    @Vonlenska You choose between Wonder Boy or Wonder Girl at the very beginning of the game.

    @sketchlayerjosh Yeah, you have the ability to switch forms via the town's change room later on, if I didn't make that clear.

    @puptwilightpatterson The link to it is literally in the first line of the article. You couldn't take a second to actually see if if was addressed because you were typing up two posts saying the same thing.

    Amazing.
