So Maple Treeway feels a little gimped to me. It's definitely shorter. Blah!

I'll try to join you now. I've been having some issues myself.

Edit - Hmm... Communication error.

I got my game... and of course no pin set I just hate the fact that it was advertised in store on the counter for like a month yet at the end of it all, they know absolutely fuck all about the reward and don't even make a damn effort to try and fix it. So I'll call back tomorrow to speak to the manager or email them and hopefully get this resolved.

So, if a game is full, you'll just spectate until someone leaves? I don't k ow what I think of that. I think I'd rather it just tell me it's full so I can move on.

There was a complaint that using the same thread was cluttery. So I made a new one. No more flip-flopping from now on!

I just got my copy so I hope to get involved in the discussion real soon!

Lots of communication errors. Time to try unlocking stuff I guess.

So have you tried snaking yet? ;p

Luckily/hopefully it seems limited to just that track with Metal Mario.....though we'll see if that lasts...

Oh yeah, it's out now... I'll pick it up soon enough. My brother still has my 3DS.

Even if snaking (or any similar exploit) rears its ugly head, at least we can still join communities that ban it.

First 2 cups impressions:

Toad Circuit: very easy, simple first track as in any Mario Kart
Daisy Hills: some fun stuff going on here. More twists and turns and more gliding, I like it.
Cheep Cheep Lagoon: great track. Alternate paths, shortcuts, underwater and gliding. Fun stuff
Shy Guy Bazaar: A little underwhelming but maybe will grow on me. There seems to be clear cut faster route through this one.

Wuhu Loop: Love it! The music is an awesome Wii Sports Resort remix. A little short overall since it's just one lap, but it's really nice to race around Wuhu. Shortcuts and alternate paths galore.
Mario Circuit: Not bad, it's cool that you go through Peach's castle, but other than that pretty simple track.
Music Park: Creative and fun. The music goes along with your racing, love it.
Rock Rock Mountain: cool track. Looks like Coopa Cape a bit at first, but becomes its own track later. Interesting vertical section and lots of strategic gliding in this one.

A few comments:
- I like the end of race music, it's a remix of the Mario Kart 64 theme.
- Don't like that time is not tracked in GP mode.
- Coins are gonna add a ton of depth to the racing.
- You can get a mushroom in first, and out boost a blue shell.
- Items seem more balanced and less chaotic, 8 racers instead of 12 is a big factor.
- Music overall is good
- Customization is fun

Ok, off to the star and special cups I go!

Melody Motorway? That's a great name.
Mine calls it Music Park??
Posted: 12/04/11, 20:24:03

Omg thank you soooo much, lol.

Anyhoo. Being able to boost out of a blue shell sounds fantastic. I used to anger my friends so much doing that in Double Dash, heh.

I'm just waiting for my housemate to finish showering so we can head out to get our copies!
Posted: 12/04/11, 20:24:39
Oops! Apparently there are different track names depending on the region. It's Melody Motorway in the EU. I know, I'm not in the EU.
Posted: 12/04/11, 20:26:02
You can outboost a blue shell? Awesome news... none of the reviews I read/watched mentioned that.
Posted: 12/04/11, 20:27:39
Yeah, I knew we were in the same region so I was confused.

EU got the better name there.

Trying to ignore the snaking stuff. Pretending it's not there.....

Some interesting choices made for this game. I love that you can go to the 3DS dashboard while playing online (I was spectating). However, I still can't change my kart or character without resetting the game? That's kind of ridiculous no? Why can't I just pick a new character before each race?

Sorry, don't quote me on that. I tried it once and failed but I think my timing was off. It should be possible, it was in MK Wii. Anyway, it's cool that you can get a mushroom in first. It's really rare, but it's there.

Well I'll be damned... they've made their finest Rainbow Road course yet! I'm in love!
Posted: 12/04/11, 21:18:13

I just did it! It was so fun!
Posted: 12/04/11, 21:18:54
Seriously, everything about the new Rainbow Road is gold.
Posted: 12/04/11, 21:23:18
Making Rainbow Road a rally course was a great idea!

WOO! I just unlocked a mode we all knew was in here.
