I’d been wanting this ever since I got my Wii U in January, but being the cheap bastard that I am, was waiting for a deal. I finally picked it up through the Mario Kart 8 promotion (you can get a free copy of this, Pikmin 3, Wii U Party, or New Super Mario Bros. U), and I’m still in awe of how gorgeous this game looks now on my TV screen. And you know what? On a weekend where I also got Mario Kart 8, I ended up playing more of this, and it really felt just so damn good to be doing it. This is the 3rd time I’ll be playing this game, and it makes me so happy that it feels like such a new experience. I can honestly say that this is my favorite gaming experience this year so far.
