Mario Kart is one game that has been around for decades. Played by us, our parents, our grandparents, our children, and possibly many future generations to come. So, with this game being so popular we thought we would share with you some of our hints and tips. Helping you to win at Mario Kart and have the best time playing.

Start On Easy Mode
It is so easy when you first play Mario kart to go against the best computers in the fastest cars. But, if you want to get good at Mario kart … DON’T DO THIS. Start off easy and give yourself time to learn. Once you begin to get better at racing you can move up the levels increasing the difficulty.

Learn The Courses
There are many different race tracks that you will be able to play and unlock on Mario kart, no matter which game it is. You will want to spend your time learning each of the courses. Each track will have a best route to take that will allow you to complete it in the fastest time. There will be hidden shortcuts, so see if you can find them as well.

Use Your Power-Ups
On Mario Kart, you are able to drive into boxes and collect special power-ups. You should always use these power-ups. They provide you with an advantage that will help you to beat your opponents. If you are in 1st place, you’ll get ones that help you to keep ahead. If you are further behind you will be given some that will help you to catch up with other racers.

These are just some of our many hints and tips that will help you to become good at Mario kart. Most importantly, you don’t want to get too big for your boots. Learn the new tracks, take your time, but most importantly have plenty of fun.

Fortnite, Forts I Like – PC, PS4, Xbox One

Posted on July 31, 2017 at 5:11 pm

The long-awaited Fortnite has finally left it’s closed Alpha and is available as an Early Access purchase. This means that the game is released, but not officially, and is still being worked on by the developers.

It’s important to get that out of the way first because a great many people are jumping into Fortnite as if it were like any new game, and it’s not. Much like Early Access games on Steam, there are many features and content that is still being developed and put into the game before its official release next year.

But what the developers (Epic Games) have offered is a unique game that truly is unlike any other, despite the tried and true American zombie survival theme that everyone has seen, multiple times, for several years.

The game has been made with a great deal of care and attention to detail, in both its world and systems. This includes its mobile game style management and time-based game mechanics which take some time to get used to and may deter some.

Is The PS4 Pro Worth It?

Posted on May 13, 2017 at 12:09 am

In 2016 Sony launched two new versions of it’s flagship console. The PS4 Pro is a meatier and more powerful version of the standard model that is able to handle 4k performance gaming and High dynamic range processing.

The other new console is the PS4 Slim. It’s functionally the same as the base model, but is sleeker and lighter. It is officially becoming known as the main PS4 as the older models are phased out.

The PS4 Pro has a graphics processor that’s twice as powerful as the one in the base model PS4. It also has an upgraded processor which allows the console to handle physics and artificial intelligence in games more easily.

These features allow the PS4 Pro to make games look a little better graphically, which is a noticeable difference when using a 4k TV. But the PS4 Pro doesn’t have any exclusive games so is realistically only worth it if you want to use it with a 4k TV.
