It all comes down to this: the inaugural Mario Kart 8 Joystiq Grand Prix. A murder of video game journalists enter, only one leaves the track a bonafide champion. Will it be Richard Mitchell, who's really good at video games? What about Earnest Cavalli's tight blue spark turns or Mike Suszek's hypnotic smack talk? Perhaps Danny Cowan's dedication to retro gaming has left his skills honed to a frightening razor edge! Only by tuning in to the Joystiq Twitch channel at 4PM EST will you be able to witness this gorgeous automotive bloodletting, where no one on the crew will be spared a blue shell's wrath.
Yes, Joystiq Streams is back for more Mario Kart 8. Right here on Joystiq.com and at Twitch.tv/Joystiq, the crew will face of in MK8 's multiplayer for the first time. Hang out with us, cheer, jeer, and question our driving skills in the chat as we play at 4PM EST.
