I know I've done the whole song and dance on why I hate clone characters, but...
I have had the headcanon for quite a few years that the King Boo from Luigi's Mansion and the King Boo from spinoffs are completely different characters, due to their differences in personality and motivations. So two King Boos in MKT is acceptable.

Well, they're not always bad, some of the vehicles can be pretty creative with their designs when the enemy is appropriately integrated into them. I really like this vehicle, for example



and I like the Blooper Space Shuttle from Rainbow Road in Mario Kart 8



Because they're well-designed.

But yeah, generally speaking, those types of uninspired vehicles where they just put an enemy on tires (Cheep Charger, Biddybuggy, Turbo Yoshi, Piranha Prowler, Magikruiser, Yoshi Bike, Bullet Bike), deserve to be in the impound lot and then sent to the junkyard to get smashed into bits

I think they're mostly fine, I only have an issue with the karts that are just the character's head plastered on the front of a box, they look lazy and ugly.

Bro that bike is a godsend because you can RIDE YOSHI IN MARIO KART
do you realise who you're talking to

So? You can ride a pimped out muscle car modded heavily with speakers and lights all over it on tiny roller tires. You can drive a train on Monster tires. You can drive a fucking Harley in Mario Kart. And not to mention, the fucking MERCEDES vehicles on Cushion tires. Out of all great options, you decide to go with the shitty-looking bike designed after a shit character.

Also, it's not even the first game where you can ride on a vehicle that screams "PULL ME OVER! TURN ON THE RED AND BLUE LIGHTS". You can already ride such a vehicle in Mario Kart: Double Dash.

Every kart that consists of a character turned into a kart is an abomination and should be dynamited, especially that rambi head thing from MKDS.
Bash it all you want. But that is my signature combo and has been since my early MKW days. Tacky as it may be, the stats drew me to it at first and after that...it just became my kart. It just doesn't feel the same without it.

Yoshi Bike is fine and I used to ride it before realizing I vastly preferred karts. I have yet to try the Turbo Yoshi but it would probably be my signature kart if not for my history with the Super Blooper.

I'm concerned, ngl.
I think I'm fine. I made a whole thread tier list about how much I love or hate certain karts from every single darn kart in the series and I'm going to make that effort count

i'm salty that the damn bike is my first unlock in 8 deluxe so seriously screw that thing and also I didn't design it, they did
 
Saw a badge that contains Birdo’s bow emblem. I imagine she’ll be added soon.

I don't really like the Waluigi Wing glider's design. All they did was slap his portrait on with without even stylizing it. The Wario Wing has a much better design.
Compare.

Baby Luigi has spent too much time in Los Santos, which is how he mastered the art of hijacking vehicles belonging to other characters.

I was wondering what you meant, then I saw the symbol on the car.

Nah, she let him borrow it.

i think this is one of those cases in which one needs to be happy there's anything at all.

Waluigi isn't exactly the character that gets the most stuff in games anyways.

Still better than Daisy.

This! Plus, I like that his whole face is on it. I think it's a really cute glider!

Multiplayer, I guess, can't be tested before they release this thing in the first place.

Yeah, it's the beta test which is restricted, not necessarily the feature as a whole. I guess "thanks" to the price and the Gold Pass bug - for some reason many people are unable to subscribe -, they don't have many subscribers so the matchmaking server won't die miserably.

Speaking of subscroibers, we have the numbers of how Mario Kart Tour did this first month.

123.9 frikkin' million downloads in the first month. Good thing that the monetization model was so hilariously bad that the average spending per player was $0.26 per player, i.e. the total revenue was $37.4 million. To put things into pesrpective, 1 million 3DS games sold at $40 generate more revenue, so Mario Kart isn't going free-to-play-only or mobile-only anytime soon.

Still, even assuming half the player didn't even play the game for more than a day if at all, these results eclipse Mario Kart Wii. Even one third of the number of downloads is better than the lifetime sales of Mario Kart Wii, actually. It makes me wonder how much the Nintendo consoles are "limiting" the sales of the Mario Kart games.
