Mario Kart 8

Recommended Posts

I wish there was a way for Mario Kart to send you a SpotPass reminder/notification to remind you of tourney activity/inactivity times (but only for tourneys you want to be notified for)

I should also remind everyone that if you want to change characters or karts during a tournament, please rejoin through the friends page instead of the tournaments page to make sure you don't create a separate room. Especially you, Dave.

So that's what happened. Sorry about that one. I got it.

Just chiming in here cause I wasn't sure from the OP and the last couple of posts, but if I'm reading this correctly, you all do weekly Mario Kart 8 tournaments that start at 10pm EST on Wednesdays and are an hour long?

I ask because I want to take advantage of Best Buy's current Buy One Get One 40% Off deal with Wii U games after work today, and there's a high chance one of those games will be MK8.

If you don't make one of them MK8, you have failed. It's easily the best iteration of the series post-DLC, and was a strong contender beforehand.

That's right. The information in the first post is still accurate except that the tournament is only active on Wednesdays now.

It's currently set to include all cups, which means you can only join if you have the DLC. I can set it back to only original cups every once in a while if people want, but I do recommend getting the DLC.

And by that he means the 1+2 Bundle ;-)

I already love the LoZ DLC pack, and I can't wait to see what the Animal Crossing pack brings

Hah!

Yeah, I ended up getting Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors (though I'll still get Wind Waker HD and Bayonetta 2 eventually). They'll take two weeks to arrive in the mail though. I'll absolutely buy all the MK8 DLC when it arrives; I can't resist more Isabelle in my life.

Are the times on the front post still correct? Sorry I haven't been keeping this up to date.

It's only on wednesdays now, but everything else should be

My copies of MK8 and Hyrule Warriors came in the mail today. Assuming the Javascript class I'm ditching work to take most of next week doesn't wipe me out, I'll be there on Wednesday for HOT AND HEAVY POWER SLIDING ACTION

We can definitely get back into it now that the holiday season is over. It's still set up the same way.

I just finished my somewhat semi-annual Mario Kart marathon, during which I picked new favorite characters based on first appearances, last appearances, general interestingness, and reasonable stats.

Super: Toad

64: Wario

Super Circuit: Peach

Double Dash: Toadette/Bowser Jr.

DS: Waluigi

Wii: Birdo

7: Wiggler

8: Roy 5ever

Pink/purple in 6 out of 8 games. This pleases me.

So, who's ready to wear out the grass with some 200cc Animal Crossing? We have less than 3 weeks to go!

The higher speed seems to have opened up different opportunities for shortcuts. It's going to take some practice, that's for sure. I'm pumped that we're getting a free update that gives us good reason to revisit old tracks.

We'll definitely set up a time to warm up on 150cc and then move on to 200cc another day.

I think it'd be awesome if we could get a bunch of people to play online the day it's released, or shortly after.

I'm away from my computer atm, otherwise I'd start setting something up myself.

200cc is free

Hilariously enough the speed increase fixes a gripe I had with this game's version of Piranha Plant Slide, as with the added speed you can once again go over the castle near the end of the track as you could in the original MK7 version lol

wait, wait, wait

does the newest DLC include a new speed class? Whaaaat?

Check out that glide distance on Dolphin Shoals.

The update comes out on the 23rd, a Thursday. Would that be a good day for people to meet up for 150cc DLC? We usually race at 9PM Central.

(if not, give us an idea which days you might be available shortly after that)

Looking forward to jumping back into this! Hopefully you all will be playing throughout that weekend though, because I'll be flying back from a work-related conference on the actual Thursday the AC DLC drops, and will probably too tired to play that day or Friday.

Maverickk, wildfire, and I are able to play on Saturday night (the 25th) if that's a better date for you, Arrow.

Currently revisiting time trials and watching some world record ghosts. I think all that hopping would make me go insane. Kind of reminds me of snaking on the DS. I'm just glad it's not done as much during actual races.

We coordinate through a facebook group chat. If anyone wants in on it, find me on facebook (or if you're friends with someone in this thread, you can also ask them) and we'll get you added to the conversation!

I'll still post information about meetups here, but it's easier to work out everyone's availability through facebook.
