Ever since Bungie added Forge to Halo 3, Halo Karts has been a factor. The inspiration of Nintendo’s all-conquering Mario Kart was apparent, however the varied Halo Karts had been constructed from Halo components and performed on Halo maps. Now the prophecy is upon us. A Halo Mario Kart mod as ludicrous as it’s superb.

Cursed Halo Kart, to offer it the correct title, is part of a a lot bigger mod known as Cursed Halo Once more, which is a marketing campaign sequel to the multiplayer map pack Cursed Halo. The Mario Kart ‘marketing campaign’ right here relies on that prior mod,Halo Karts, and duties gamers with successful Mario Kart races in Warthogs towards varied comedy Halo duos to progress (that is, in any case, a ‘cursed’ marketing campaign). Every part talked about right here was created by modder InfernoPlus and the entire overarching undertaking is equal components weird and spectacular.

The mod’s proven off beneath by Youtuber Mint Blitz, and it is where I took the above absurd gif from.

Like, it nearly appears a type of issues that began as a joke, then acquired legs of its personal, and have become some form of labour of affection. The Cursed Halo Once more mod particularly alters Halo 1 within the Grasp Chief Assortment and, if you step again from the humour and silliness of what is going on on within the mod, there is a sure grandeur to what this previous warhorse is being gee-d as much as ship. 

Which on this case, after all, is basic Mario Kart tracks, however now with stickies as a substitute of blue shells, a imprecise Double Sprint high quality within the paired-up Warthog riders, and a few bonkers grenade physics that ship the karts careening throughout the tracks. Which, it seems, is usually a helpful shortcut.

InfernoPlus has a patreon where you may sustain with their work, however Cursed Halo Once more (in addition to a lot of their older work) is most simply accessible by the Steam Workshop.
