In fact, the only thing that equals those delights is Mario Kart 8's capacity to inspire fury, madness, and utter rage. Oh, right, it's at the end of a perfect Grand Prix run when I get hit by a four red shells in a row and one perfectly placed banana peel. OF COURSE IT IS! NATURALLY! A POX ON ALL YOUR HOUSES, MARIO KART, YOU UNFORGIVING MONSTER! I hate you as much as I love you, Mario Kart 8, hence why every failure is met by an immediate restart. That is also why we'll be streaming your luscious races today on Joystiq Streams.
Starting at 4PM EST, we'll be streaming a solid chunk of 150cc Grand Prix brutality on Twitch.tv/Joystiq and right here on Joystiq.com. It's one more chance to get a look at the Wii U's big spring exclusive before it hits shelves on Friday. It will also be an opportunity to hang with the Joystiq crew and mock Anthony John Agnello's driving skills.
Tune into Joystiq Streams every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST on the Joystiq Twitch channel and right here on Joystiq.com. Plus: keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for myriad contests and giveaways tied to Streams. Who doesn't love free games?
