I try to keep my ear to the ground regarding indie games, but it’s impossible to keep track of most of them.

Mario Kart 7 reminds us once again that little has changed in the franchise’s long history. The imaginatively titled sequel eschews the tiniest gimmicks these games have entertained over the years, like the bikes of the Wii version, the team-based mirth of Double Dash!!, or the DS version’s benefit of being the first in the series to have online multiplayer....
