An all-star team of Joystiq racers offered up a challenge to the good people at Engadget and now, dear friends, it is time to race. Six racers enter, and it will be a miracle if even one leaves Rainbow Road alive.
The Mario Kart 8 Joystiq versus Engadget Hells Shells Showdown starts at 4PM EST on Twitch.tv/Joystiq and right here on Joystiq.com. Come on down early for a heaping spoonful of pre-show smack talks as Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek), Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM), Danny Cowan (@db_cowan) bring the ruckus to Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert) and Tim Seppala (@TimSeppala).
Joystiq Streams broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST on the Joystiq Twitch channel and here on Joystiq.com.
