Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
I wonder how Cube Creator 3D turned out. The demo showed promise.

Mario Kart DS! Still my favorite in the series, easily. Too bad you can't do multiplayer, online or off.

I was always curious about those Korg programs. They look like pretty in-depth music composers. Probably too complex for my drummer's brain, but maybe someday I'll pick one up and dabble anyway.

I pre-purchased the Mario Kart 8 DLC pack, but how do I download it?
Is there any way to make it happen? I've tried checking out the eShop and my download manager but nothing is there.

When I started the game up it downloaded an update but the DLC isn`t there. Any help would be wonderful.

EDIT - Never mind. Apparently I had to wait about 45 extra minutes for the system to randomly decide it wanted the DLC. All is well.

If Mario Kart DS had the online enabled then I'd be tempted.

Even better would be if they somehow tricked the DS VC into allowing 8 player multiplayer using the local option.

Yeah it seems a little half-hearted that they didn't make it so the online works... and they didn't even take it out of the menu, if you go into the multiplayer section it just gets confused and bugs out, so bizarre.

Have to say though this game holds up, something about it... it's just fun.
