I've unlocked all the tracks and had a few matches online, the online worked great for me, thought maybe the servers or whatever might take a hammering due to the game just being released but everything worked great.
I can't get over how pretty everything is, and how awesome most of the tracks are.

Alright, NESkimos tournament runs weekly from Monday to Sunday. They deleted my last tournament for using the word "fuckers". Anyone who has ideas for rules, time changes, items, or whatever, throw em out there. Right now it's 150cc, Frantic Mode, 8 Races. Most points at the end of the week wins, and there's no set number for each race, so you could even go 1v1 I guess. I really want to play with you guys.

How do the tournaments work? I found yours and joined it by myself, then quit when it asked me for a map.

You have to have someone to race against, so set up a match for whenever you want, possibly by using this thread. Whoever wins the most points from 8 races wins that week.

Though I just realized that a time trial tournament would be a pretty good idea too...

getting use to the new 1-item only rule was a bit weird.

Already, you can tell the tracks from this game that will stand out and be featured in future Mario games. Good time; solid kart racer. Wii-U did just get a bump.

Yeah, i was about to go to bed but decided to have a quick race, saw you online and realised I could join you easily, it was a lot of fun.
Oh man, that race on Mt Wario was BS haha, right at the end of the race I get hammered by items then you zoom right past and finish!

If anyone wants to plan ahead for some races, if you want to include me you may need to plan it like half a day in advance at the least. Due to the massive time difference I'm mostly asleep when you guys are awake, but given enough warning I can be awake much earlier.

Also, I unlocked all the racers Why is there no Baby Bowser?! You have all of the Koopa Kids but not Baby Bowser? You have Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario and Metal thing Peach for some gods awful reason but no Baby Bowser? And I guess Dry Bones is missing too.

i've been super sad about the exclusion of Dry Bones since well before launch. I've resorted to racing as Toad.
