Fire hopping is the act of manipulating the drifting in such a way that the boost received after finishing a good drift remains for the rest of the entire game. This game some gamers an edge over others if the move could be pulled off successfully, but the new DLC that has just launched for Mario Kart 8 puts and end to that.

One of my first games consoles was the NES and on that, I of course had the split cartridge which featured Super Mario and Duck Hunt, but I also had Excitebike, probably one of the first racing games that I played which featured a track creator that allowed me to create a series of stupid completely impossible tracks, it was also my first introduction to gaming vigilantism as I discovered clipping the front tire of an opponent's bike with the back tyre sent them flying. Man, I loved that game.

There’s no better feeling than zipping around a race track with a bunch of plumbers, princesses, babies and Koopas. Mushrooms being fed into karts for speed boosts to cross you over the finish line in dramatic fashion and someone taking the form of a Bullet Bill to knock everyone out the way.
