  1. Mario Kart League 2015

    After a couple of weeks, I'm still getting a fair amount of DC errors... If it happens this evening, don't get surprised if I don't show up again.
  2. Mario Kart League 2015

    Not really, but it's close. In this case I blame more Nintendo's servers, I've tested my connection and it could have downloaded that in 2h at most. I had a glimmer of hope when I saw the ETA dropping within the time GP was about to start... but then at the last 20% the ETA added an extra hour.
  3. Mario Kart League 2015

    Came home early to set up the downloaded, Wii says ETA 4h... don't think I'll make it tonight.
  4. Mario Kart League 2015

    Nah, don't do it because of one player. I'll do my best to have it on time. Yes, it does download. Last time it didn't donwload on time for the GP. This is why Nin should allow pre-downloads and for the content to unlock on launch day.
  5. Mario Kart League 2015

    If I'm not mistaken the DLC releases on the same date as the race. I'm not sure if I'll manage to download it on time for the race, will do my best.
  6. Mario Kart League 2015

    Was there but got a connection error again... Thanks mate but I'm out for the night.
  7. Mario Kart League 2015

    So many disconnections today... @Clownferret let me know when GP2 is about to start; if it doesn't work again. I'll be out for the evening.
  8. Mario Kart League 2015

    I'm stuck in traffic, so I won't be able to make it to the first GP. If everything goes well I might be on time for the second one, but I'm not sure.
  9. Mario Kart League 2015

    Although I don't speak much, had to mute the mic. My sister was constantly speaking in Portuguese and then my brother came up shouting [REDACTED] things. Also, this is probably her last evening on this, I can't believe that for most of the night she was doing her best to keep me in fifth. Sorry about the Toad Harbor thing, my pro controller freaked out. Loved the set up. hated the choice of some courses. A fun evening overall.
  10. Mario Kart League 2015

    If the list gets updated and we end up with two groups, is it possible for my little sister to join (although she's not part of the forum)?

    That green shell was a Hail Mary to see if I could improve some positions in that last lap. I'm sure I can relate my good positioning on some tracks to the type of items I get. I got two coins while in sixth in one of the races and ended up almost last, there was another in which I got in one lap three mushrooms three times. Could you send me the link too? I'd like to have a look at the file... maybe I can glean something from it, or give something to it. Also 60MBs isn't a bit much for an excel file?

  13. Mario Kart League 2015

    Finally had some luck this evening, even saw a bomb-omb bounce just next to me without exploding. @Dcubed was in a bad mood, kept always choosing random.

    Whoever said "not Rainbow Road"... that's what you get for wishing things like that...
  15. Mario Kart League 2015

    @lostmario, something came up and I'm not sure I'll be home on time. I don't mind giving up my place if need be; otherwise keep me on the list just in case I'm home on time.
  16. Mario Kart League 2015

    I'll be blunt, haven't touched Mario Kart since the last game of the league last year. Well, maybe a few times, since I've some cousins visiting for the last couple of weeks. But I share the feeling that MK started to feel like a chore late last year and it doesn't help how rubbish Battle Mode is in a otherwise almost perfect game (except for the item rape :P); it could've spiced things up a bit to have some sessions of it. Last night the league started badly, had two last places in quick succession during the first couple of races... but gosh I was having fun and laughing hard. Then things took a turn for the better with some gripping races. Managed to throw a red shell at RedShell for good measure and payback someone who tried to touch me with his star and missed. Looking forward for more races...

    Always in!!!
  18. Mario Kart 8 - Online Meet Up Thread

    I should be able to join you in a few moments, good time to gauge my skills.
  19. Nintendo Pocket Football Club

    I'm pretty upset with this game. After the first season, lots of grinding and some online matches, I get the impression this game is more like Game Dev Story. You choose a couple of options, train your team, watch the cute animations for 10min and repeat. It was all very exhilarating in the beginning, but after the first season without going through, finding about special teams that give you special combos (that I grinded many hours to try and find some of) and a menu that lists those found but doesn't allow you to apply the special combos from it... There's no way I can forgive Nintendo for charging a £13 for a game that feels like a fiver. By the way, any plans to create a league?
  20. Metroid: Other M

    Yes. It's very linear in the beginning but it gets better late in the game. If you like Fusion, which is also a bit linear, you'll like this one.
  21. Although I'm not a regular member of this forum, especially since a couple of years back, some members may remember me from Modern Warfare and The Conduit online sessions. I recently bought a 3DS with New Leaf and would love to interact with the community. Here's my friend code 0705-3045-4659 (oranges).
  22. Metroid: Other M

    This is what I would love to receive if there was a Prestige Edition for this game.
  23. Metroid: Other M

    Sorry, I meant in First Person...
  24. Metroid: Other M

    @Sméagol: You won't be able to move in 3D, you are just able to look around shoot and scan.
  25. Metroid: Other M

    Isn't that what Jeff Gerstmann said on his hands-on of the demo (check for the Metroid: Other M hands-on on Giant Bomb, since I'm not allowed to put urls just yet)? About the game, I have my reservations though.
