Episode 19 – Mario Kart 64

Let’s a-go!  This time we’re hitting the gas pedals on our 100cc karts and racing our way into 1997 and the game that took the Nintendo 64 by storm, Mario Kart 64!  Hosts Chris and Katie hop in (both with Toad, they’re definitely siblings!) to join the Mario crew racing through Kalimari Desert, Koopa Troopa Beach, Wario Stadium, and of course, Rainbow Road!

Drifting, drafting, blue-shell-ing, and failing miserably at finding the shortcuts through the tracks… it’s racing mayhem, and all that childhood frustration re-lived all over again… but with a shiny cup thrown up by an oversized Cheep Cheep at the end of it all, and doesn’t that make it all better?

Jump in the passenger seat (of this one-seater kart?) and give it a listen, and remember all the hilarity and fun that came from this game, and some of its anti-frustration features along the way!
