Off The Record 16: Can Mario Kart 8 save Wii U?

Plus, we talk about Amazon's micro-console and answer your questions

This week's CVG Off The Record features a sick me (Tamoor) along with Chris and Rob, the only two people willing to risk getting into the same room with a sick. Brave men indeed.


We start off with a little discussion on Amazon's Fire TV and whether it's a viable platform for video games. Then we move on to Randy Pitchford saying things and then getting a bit moany when people report on it. After that we spend a bit of time on April foolery.

That's pretty much as long as we can keep Rob from talking about Mario Kart 8 without incurring physical violence, so Chris tells us all about his hands-on time with the game. There's singing, laughing and fanboying galore.

Finally, we end by answering your questions, which were actually pretty good this week. Nice job, you.

If you're the sort of person who likes things direct, here's a direct link to the MP3 file so you can stick it on your media player of choice. Is that a Creative Zen? Time for an update mate.
