Mario Kart 8 will teach you to fear Luigi


In case you haven’t heard, Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Wii U is out and it’s freakin’ awesome.  Visually-speaking, it’s also an incredibly detailed game. Sand will stick to the wheels of your kart after cruising through a patch of desert, tire marks from your friends and NPCs alike will remain on the course after power-sliding through sharp turns- and more explicitly, Mario Kart’s colorful cast of characters react to being pelted with green shells or stare up in horror as the shadow of the blue shell slides over their head.

These details are especially more noticeable when captured using Mario Kart 8’s video-editing feature, a new tool which allows you to add slow-motion effects and chop-up your own “highlight reel” of sorts. Within moments of the game’s release, posters on the popular gaming forum NeoGAF  were sharing clips when they began to take notice of Luigi’s surprisingly mean facial expressions throughout the game. 

Soon enough, gamers everywhere were posting hilarious footage of the brother’s ice-cold stare as he sends opponents into oblivion.

Luigi does not fuck around.

Edit: Reddit never ceases to impress, there is already a Luigi Death Stare subreddit. Awesome.
