Snaking, the sneaky practise from old Mario Kart games, has been outlawed since Mario Kart Wii but one gamer seems to have found a way to use turbo boosts on straights in Mario Kart 7. Check out this Mario Kart 7 snaking video to see what we mean.
The boosts around the bends were impressive but we're interested in what happens on the straights. As you can see, the player hops and keeps hold of the shoulder button before letting go to get a turbo boost. This snaking practise continues on the straights. Some would call that cheating. Others would say that it's clever. Either way, we hope we don't see it when you play us in our Mario Kart 7 community this afternoon.
Obviously, it's not quite as effective as the snaking in Mario Kart DS.
What do you think of snaking? Will you be using this technique in Mario Kart 7? Let us know by commenting below or in our Mario Kart 7 forum thread.
