Watch LONELYROLLINGSTARS perform a rock remix of "Royal Rainbow Road" from Mario Kart Double Dash

The fully capitalized LONELYROLLINGSTARS have recently published their first music video on their brand new, official Youtube channel.

Listen to the soaring sounds of niche classic Mario Kart Double Dash!! from the oft-forgotten Gamecube era. This song makes me continue to hold out hope that Co-op play will one day be reintroduced to the Mario Kart series.

"Alas, my children, the time has come for cosmic reconfiguration. The portion of my being known as Grant "Stemage" Henry has graduated to realms beyond my reach. May this prince soar for a fulfilling portion of eternity. But indeed the stars hath bestowed upon me a puzzle piece identical in shape to the gap left behind. I beseech you welcome into the fortress of our heart the newest Lonely Rolling Star: Ryan "MegaBeardo" Postlethwait.

Take a look at the "First Mario Kart 8 hacks!"

Some awesome proof of concept work by Bean and Chadderz (former Mario Kart Wii modders) in hacking Mario Kart 8 on Wii U. To be fair, I have more research in the area of "Wii U hacking" to read up on before this video makes complete sense to me, but initial chatter is siding with this being legit. So it appears that the path of the Wii U may take a drastic turn in some areas of the gaming community.

It's clear from the work in this video that a 1080p "Mario Kart 8: Black" could be a definite possibility! This simple yet far fetched notion makes me excited beyond belief, almost as much as imagining an HD re-release of Mario Kart Double Dash!! for Wii U.

I for one, am obviously on the optimistic end of the spectrum on where this Wii U exploitation is heading. Although, I am the type of person that had more fun soft-modding my PSP than actually playing games on it. In fact, the only game I've beaten on the PSP was a GBA rom of Summon Knight: Swordcraft Story.

So what do you think about the latest news about hackers finding an exploit in Mario Kart 8? Have you ever played on a hacked game console before?
