Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): COMPLETED!

Yes, I finally caved and bought Mario Kart 8 again. I have it for the Wii U so didn’t really need it on the Switch, but then they went and announced a load of new tracks will be coming to it and it was 33% off so here we are. It’s the same as on the Wii U. Only you don’t get a screen each in two player and all the cups, tracks and characters are unlocked from the start. …

Super Mario Kart (Wii U): COMPLETED!

I’ve been picking at this for the last couple of weeks, doing a cup or two here and there.
