What, the PSP gets an icon but there's no love for the DS?

Anyhoo, I picked up Mario Kart DS this week and oh boy, it's all kinds of great. The controls handle flawlessly, there are tons of tracks (both new tracks and retro courses from the SNES, GBA, N64, and Gamecube versions), and the game looks great. And from the sounds of things, there are tons of unlockables if you get good enough.

I even got to try a bit of the online play. This was where I discovered that I apparently really suck at the game. I don't actually have a wireless router of my own, so I'm almost never going to be online, but if you have the game, my friend code is 515455 665680 - feel free to find me and kick my ass.

All in all, if you have a DS, I can't recommend this enough. Between this and Animal Crossing, it's a good Christmas for DS owners.

With the endless touting of online play, this Mario Kart NEEDED to kick ass. And thankfully, Nintendo knocked this one out of the ballpark. The new tracks are great and the retro tracks are perfect. The gameplay is very intuitive and the second screen actually works well, since you can see exactly where potential hazards lay.

Of course, the big feature is online play. Next to Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart was the one franchise I wanted to see with online play. Wi-Fi on the DS is officially here and it kicks ass. THIS should have been the time to release Zelda: The Four Swords.

This pretty much says it all

Haven't gotten online yet (which I've heard is actually pretty lacking in MK:DS, hopefully this is just a "first step" before Nintendo really gets an online network in place for future DS games/the Revolution), but the game itself brings back so many good memories ... the new Bowser's castle in particular saps a lot of my free time.

Out of curiousity, since I have no DS, can you use the backward compatibility for GBA games and play THEM Wi-Fi?

To celebrate the upcoming Troll Amnesty (and for otherwise no reason at all), I present to you the very best of Trolling here on The W. This weeks Troll Moment of the Week is brought to you by;

Bret screwed bret, who brought us such pieces as wisdom as: "I DID NOT come here to be attacked and trolled by these brain dead Steve Austin marks nor any Bret sheep. Thank you Mr. Zim for not paying attention to the trolls that was a great statement. I myself will not pay attention to these trolls either but continue posting clear, concise and well thought out commentary on those two worthless bastards Bret and Steve. Glad to see this board is run by intelligent people. I will however require an apology from the persons who insulted me. That was uncalled for and very low class indeed."

I bought the MK:DS game bundled with the DS for 150, and right now I'm so glad I did. It really is fun, although some stuff had to be left off (the Baby Park level was so much fun in MK: Double Dash for the Gamecube, but here it is just bare bones). Speaking of bones, Dry Bones is my new favorite character. I love him in Mario Party 7, and I love him here in MK.

I only wish they had brought back Yoshi's level from the Gamecube game (forget the level name) where you couldn't see what place you were in until the end. But, at least Rainbow Road is in the game, and is even better than ever on this game.

All in all, I got one guy at work who I will be battling tonight, and I will set up the Wi-Fi connection here in a few days to see if I can get some real competition.

None of the previous games have WiFi capabilites because they weren't build into those games. - CMLLBlog
