    Yeah, you'll be barred from online play unless you download the patch. Much as I hate the slow creep of patching into Nintendo games, it's good that they've fixed this problem.

    Awesome news, cheers roz :)

    Good times. I wonder if we'll get details on exactly what has been patched. Besides the obvious glitches on both Wuhu courses, there is one on Rainbow Road too.

    Another thing that needs adjusting is some of the alternate routes on some of the courses. For example, the muddy shortcut that leads to a blue ramp on Dino Dino Jungle is quicker than the standard route, even without a mushroom. It means that pretty much everyone ignores the standard route, which is the case with a number of alternate routes on other courses.

    Edit - Ignore me. The details are all on the eShop.

    Just got this - awesome game! Got a question though and sorry if this has been answered already - is there a way to share ghost data between friends? I remember the Wii version, when you did a time trial, you could send your ghost to a registered friend. Is there a similar system here? One of the best things I like about the Wii version was having a running battle with a mate in America for who could get the best time on Moo Moo Farm! I notice you can pick up strangers ghost data through the streepass system, but I'm not really so bothered about challenging randoms. Any ideas? I checked the mariokart channel but there doesn't seem a way to send ghost data to others manually.

    As far as I know it's automatic through Spotpass - if I load up time trial now, it lets me chose who to race against. No need to do it manually. Not entirely sure if actually works like that though - some tracks have my friends times, some don't. I'm not sure if it's because they've not done the other tracks, or because they happened to have times close to mine.

    Whether you like that or not is up to you, but I quite like it. It loads a few random times so you can chose how much of a challenge you give yourself.

    Anyone up for a few races
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 14:39:44
    I'm free now if you're about. I'm still up for organising something too! I'm free Thursday and Sunday night this week.
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 14:47:05
    Yup, are we still using the communities?
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 14:49:43
    We could do, but it would just be a 1 on 1 scenario, unless somebody else reading decides to join in. I could meet you in a race through the friends list if you prefer?

    Edit - Just had to add you now. I'm sure I had you on the list already though. :/

    start a game and I'll join you
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 15:07:50
    Ok, I got there finally. Had trouble connecting to a game for some reason. It's all good now though.
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 15:33:06
    Is that 3 of us now?
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 15:45:22
    who's the other?
  • Deleted user 29 July 2012 16:11:48
    DaveDaHutt, though with the 30 odd people on my friends list, I can't remember exactly who he is on here lol. That last race was the best of the lot and I went from 1st to 6th right at the end. :(

    Well, thanks for the games anyway. Both of you. I think i'm going to try fitting in some MotoHeroz before my girlfriend wakes from her nap.

    Edit - Oh, it's MoGamer2006. Sorry Dave! Or Mo. Whichever you prefer.

    Dave's fine! ;) That was fun! Didn't know there'd be others online, pure chance.

    Ended up in a few races against DaveDaHutt yesterday :-) I forgot how evil some of the new tracks. I'm particularly awful at Bowser's Castle.

    I tried joining Crispy this morning, but felt guilty about the generally low VR. That's not to say you can't hold your own, Crispy, but it's likely that most people in that game were new and I would have done nothing but spoil it for them.

    Had an amazing race yesterday. A few corners from the end of the first lap of Luigi's Raceway and I was 7th. It was pretty close at this point as I could see the leader from where I was. Anyway, I pick up a blue shell and suddenly the whole pack slow up. Within seconds i've gone from 7th to 1st and I lead for the next two laps. Nobody else botheres to attack me for the following two laps, knowing i'd simply fire the blue shell at them as they went passed.

    Finally, on the 2nd to last corner, somebody plucks up the courage and fires a red shell they'd been holding onto for at least a lap. As soon as i'm passed I fire off the Blue Shell and hit nearly everyone that passes me, managing to hold on to a 2nd place finish. One of the most amusing races i've ever had.

    Like some of the new tracks. Very well designed. Gliding down into certain areas is awesome. Quite like alpine pass.

    There are new tracks? Great!
  • Deleted user 22 November 2012 23:41:43
    I think joelstinton means that they're new to him. He's just got the game recently.

    Doh! There's me thinking Ninty were doing DLC!

    So is 150cc actually any quicker? doesn't feel that much quicker than 100cc or online play. Difficulty as def increased, and theres been some tight races. I guess they had to reduce the speed for screen size ratio or something.

    Yeah, 150cc doesn't seem much faster, if at all, but the races are usually so hectic that you don't notice.

    I've been working on 3-starring all cups, and (unsurprisingly) having some incredibly frustrating moments. It's bad enough when you slip and make a silly mistake yourself, but getting hit by a blue shell when you're in the very final lap of an otherwise perfect tournament is just ridiculous. All part and parcel of the game, I guess - good job it's so addictive.
  • Deleted user 28 November 2012 13:56:54
    thanks for that. Yeah i had some hectic races, lost a couple on last corner, but won one back. Really like the gliding in this.
  • Deleted user 28 November 2012 14:11:18
    3-starring cups is the only frustrating thing about this game.

    I'd never bothered doing it in older MKs, as it always seemed to be based on silly criteria (I think in the GBA version you had to collect a certain amount of coins, ensure you don't get hit etc.), but in this one it seems mostly fair - as long as you race well and dominate the tracks, you can get it, even if you get hit a couple of times. Certainly a good challenge if you can persevere.
