Mario Kart 8's brand new 200cc races are fast. Very fast. Indeed, they are so damned speedy that they almost made our own Joseph Volpe throw up while he was having an insanely good time playing. Since we're always up for a bout of stomach churning fun, the JXE Streams posse is diving back into Mario Kart 8 to check out the new 200cc races as well as the new downloadable characters. We're also going to share the love with Mike Still, our very special guest from Upright Citizens Brigade.
Tune in at Twitch.tv/Joystiq, Engadget.com/gaming or right here in this post starting at 3:30PM ET for a look at all the new content in Mario Kart 8 on Wii U. What's it look like when the Animal Crossing Villager rides a scooter around Rainbow Road faster than anyone has before? We'll find out. You can also chat with us and Mike Still, the artistic director of the UCB theater in Los Angeles and host of Extreme Gaming Championship.
