So how do I get in on these tourneys? I noticed there are currently several and i lost track.

All you have to do is show interest in playing in this tourney. Since you have, and others have dropped out, you are in. 

I will be posting the Tournament code in this thread and everyone will have to search for it in order to find the Tournament. You can check to see when the Tournament is starting in your timezone by going to my OP.

Just say you want in, and you're there!

Which tourneys do you want to take part in? The one today, the one tomorrow, Rol's one...

Definitely the one today. Don't know if I can catch the one tomorrow though.

And since Rol obviously needs a beeting I will try to catch the one at thursday as well.

Gonna be fun... probably. I never ever play online. This will be pretty much my first.

Gotta train more.

shit forgot to mention my hatred for the Gamepad advantage. Where the fuck is my mini map on the TV?? or any of that other shit -_-



I defiantly wont be able to make it to the one today because that one starts a little to early for me but if there's still spots available for Conegamer's tourney tomorrow I would like to join.

Really enjoying it, last night I finished 50cc since I finally had time to play, tonight will be 100cc, tomorrow 150cc, then online all the way after that for the most part after I get back from my vacation like a week and half from now, mostly getting used to the new mechanics. Good shit so far though, I never really cared much for battle mode even though I did play quiet a bit due to lawlz, but the races is where it's at!

As usual, dat 60FPS video!

The game is, for the most part, pretty awesome. It has a few negative points, such as:

1. The shitty, phoned in "Battle Mode". Why they didn't just have one of their many outside development partners work on a GOOD, REAL Battle Mode, instead of that phoned in garbage, is beyond me. I'm very disappointed by it.

2. Not a BIG issue, but the baby and metal characters are, of course, a waste of time, and wasting spots that could/should have gone to the likes of Birdo, Diddy, Dry Bones, Funky, Dixie, Magickoopa, King Boo, maybe Prof. E. Gadd, etc. I'm happy I have my Shy Guy, don't get me wrong. But some of those others should have been in the game, and NOBODY needs to play baby or metal versions of characters already in the game.


Other than that? The RACING part is incredibly solid, and in fact I'll go one better and say that it's pretty amazing, considering the fact that this game actually seems to reward players for being good RACERS, for the first time in the franchise since the N64 or so. Yes, random item madness (see: bullshit, aka: getting "Karted"), still can and does happen. But it does indeed seem to be at least SOMEWHAT more balanced/tamed. If you're good at Mario Kart, you can actually have a chance to excel, because there's LESS item fuckery, and NO ridiculous advantage to the bikes. Now all the vehicles are more or less on even ground, which is the way it should be.

So of THAT, I'm a big fan.

Plus, it needs to be said, this is also the first game since MKDS to have some truly inspired/imaginative track designs again.

Glad to hear that the tracks are very fun once again! Too bad I will have to wait another 3 weeks to get MK8!

1.  This whole game seems like it was rushed.  No options for horizontal split.  You don't see the map on the tv.  No options to change the control layout.  I'm not surprised that they didn't create a real battle mode.  Fortunetely all of this can be implemented with DLC which Nintendo is usually pretty good about it.

2. Your absolutely right, but I really dig lenny:)

I just have to say that I've been playing this with my wife and the fact that we can play grand prix and still unlock everything and get 3 stars on each cup is pretty awesome.  I don't have to unlock everything in single player first:)

But ya, the level design in this game is pretty phenomenal.



Something...Something...Games...Something

Actually I think I can join the tournament that happens today! What do I have to do to join it??

Yeah it really sucks. Not even an option for it. I try to keep the tablet close to have a sneak peek during races. It just dies on me mid race though -.-
