With the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) only a week away, we thought we’d share some love for an old childhood friend. Most of the gamers out there probably made the choice between Xbox ONE and PS4 last fall, while no one really paid much attention (or money) to the WiiU. Well, you may want to consider picking one up this month as, thanks to the Mario Kart 8 bundle, the price is right. First off Mario Kart 8 came out last week and it is as fun as its seven predecessors, which is extremely. This time around you can play as the Koopalings from Super Mario 3 and there are some anti-gravity/ hang-gliding mechanics thrown into the fold. As for the WiiU itself, Nintendo finally made the jump to 1080p; and it looks great. Maybe not be on par with the PS4, but considering the cartoonish nature of most Nintendo titles; it’s good enough. The WiiU’s controller gimmick is now a portable gamepad that you can use to play without the use of a TV. Plus all those old Wii remotes are still compatible. The bundle includes the 32Gb WiiU console, a gamepad controller, a Wiimote controller, Mario Kart and a steering wheel peripheral. And for the month of June if you purchase the game, you get a choice of four free downloadable games. Not bad Nintendo, not bad. $330.
