I can't look down at the map and then back up at the screen; I'll run into a wall. Should've put the dang map on the screen.

Aaaand we've just become part of a social experiment conducted by Nintendo to hammer home the dangers of texting and driving.

Time has passed. Nightly tournaments are no longer viable. I asked a few regulars, and weekly tournaments on Monday night sounds like the best choice so far (still at 9PM CDT). We can also occasionally have special meetups announced in advance if you want to play less often than once a week.

Any objections?

Go to online mode (1 or 2 players both work), tournaments, search by code, enter this: 0268-4142-9420

The thing wildfire said about joining friends is important. You can do that to start with if you're friends with any of us, but it also lists people you've recently raced. If at any point you need to leave and come back, rejoin through the friends page. If you try to rejoin through the tournament page, you'll likely create a very lonely second room. I think the game interprets your leaving as an indication that you don't want to be with that group of people.

You can join anytime from 9PM to 10PM central, but it's best to join at the top of the hour for accurate rankings.

New update! Adds the map to the main screen, enables DLC, can save your most recently used kart combination, and makes 'next race' the default option instead of 'view highlight reel'. Update is scheduled for August 27th.

Also adds a records screen where you can see your coin total!

Basically solves every complaint I have about the game aside from battle mode. And the fact that people are allowed to hit me with triple red shells.

Thank. GOD.

I'm looking forward to the update though I am on the fence about the DLC. It is free, so I won't complain too much. I just hope Nintendo doesn't start selling out too much. They're one of the last "pure" gaming companies in my book, but I suppose evolution is necessary to survive in today's market, and for hell, it's free.

Anyway, I hope 8 gets something alike the altered tracks and tournaments that MK Wii had. I think MK8 has some serious legs and that this update is probably just the tip of the iceberg if you catch my drift.

Well it's not like Mercedes-Benz is just putting their whole lineup in the game. The GLA is new, but the other two are vintage cars. And the Silver Arrow was a racing car anyways, so it makes sense. The other one is also built for cruising, so it's not like it's out of place either.

In May of 2015, another DLC pack is going to come out:

"Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8"

3 New Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser

4 New Karts

8 New tracks (2 more cups???)

if you buy BOTH packs:

8 different colors for Shy Guys

8 different colors for Yoshi

No confirmed date/price for US for either

Holy Crap! Hype for MK8 all over again!
