Mario Kart 8 Youtube Ultra HD 4K Races



This is part of test series I am starting for 4K upscaling on some Wii U games. So far so good wouldn't you think? 60 frames per second and Youtube don't like each other too much since 8000 bitrate is the max Youtube encodes, putting a game like Mario Kart 8 at an ultra high resolution helps the blurry artifacts that happens at high speeds.

Bayonetta 2 Demo - Ultra HD 4K Gameplay



***Directions to watch 4k: Choose 2160p, your browser might reload and you'll have to choose it again after that. The video will then buffer and depending on your Internet speed, it will display in 4k after a short while of loading***

 This is a very fast moving game that runs at 60 frames per second on the Wii U and on Youtube the compression makes games like this look very blurry in fast motion. Up-scaling the game from it's native 720p to 4K (2160p) seems to really help minimize blurring and minimize the artifacts. Let me know what you think in the comment section.

Super Smash Bros 3DS - Little Mac Tutorial


Have you been wondering how to control and use Little Mac better in Smash Bros? What about trying to beat others who use him in Online matches? I have noticed that this character seems to be overpowered, but after playing against others that use him, you can spot some of big weaknesses pretty easily.

Hyrule Warriors - Master Quest DLC Trailer (Epona featured)




It's amazing how much DLC Koei-Temo is releasing for Hyrule Warriors. The only issue is the cost, each DLC pack is $20 dollars and while riding Epona looks really cool, I don't think the deals are as good as the Mario Kart 8 DLC which was only $11.99 for 16 courses, 6 characters and 6 karts.

*Correction* The Season Pass costs $20 dollars, not each pack. Thank you my readers for correcting me on this.
