No snaking in Mario Kart Wii. That means you too, Lucas!

So, apparently there was some news yesterday regarding Mario Kart Wii, something that put some more faith in seeing more competitors - no more snaking for the Wii version.

Snaking, if you're not familiar, is a term for power sliding on a straight path in a snake-like motion. The benefit from such an odd maneuver is that, if done properly, every power slide will give you a boost, effectively allowing you to use the power slide boost even on a straight path. The most recent victim of this is Mario Kart DS, where many people have experienced it in one battle or another.

Personally, I'm glad they've reduced it to a point where the boost is determined by the length of the power slide. Maybe perhaps this time there will be more honest races.
