In a perfect storm of video gaming, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch finally arrived in the mail on Monday and I found myself with an abundance of waiting-around-time to play it. Between waiting around at the dance studio for Claire’s class to end and then waiting around for Karin’s long-delayed flight from Toronto to land, I had enough time to log about four guilt-free hours on the new racer.
That said, I also learned it’s not a great idea to try and sight-read a new course you’ve never played in an online tournament two hours after your regular bedtime… but live and learn, huh?
Also, Claire turned out to be pretty darn good, even schooling me on one course. I’m going to have to up my game on this edition.
