Who wants to play Mario Kart DS?
« on: October 06, 2005, 09:52:29 am »
So with Mario Kart DS coming out in a few weeks (11/14) maybe we could all get together on the Internet and play a few games. You will need to get the wireless adapter so that you can play on the Internet as well as the game itself, but Mario Kart DS allows up to 8 players at once (!) and it sure is a ton of fun!

Anyone else interested in playing?

Definitely, that would be fun! I'd probably be creamed since I haven't played a Mario Kart game since Super Mario Kart for the SNES, but that's all right. ;D

Maybe, it sounds like it could be fun to do over the internet. I never played the original Mario Kart much and I'd probably not be good at it. I'm really curious to see how you actually can connect with specific players over the internet.

From what I've heard when you purchase the game you somehow get a number that you can give to other players if you want to play against them. (Same with Animal Crossing.)

I'd definitely be interested, but what's this about a USB adapter? Do I still need one if I already have Wi-fi?

If you already have Wi-Fi internet in your home, then no. Nintendo is just releasing a USB adaptor you can use if you don't have wireless internet.

Isn't it only 4 players over wifi? In any case, we could set up a sort of tourney, which would be fun.

I agree, we only really need 4. Races can get hectic enough. With 8 it's a pain, because there's always one guy in the back sending near constant blue shells and lightnings. I wouldn't mind the odd 8 player wifi race, and because this game supports single pack multiplayer, it's possible.

I just pre-ordered my Mario Kart DS from EB! Im so excited for it to come out! Yeah, that would be awesome if we could all maybe set up a specific date and time to meet and maybe play a few games.
