MarioKart Wii

>> Monday, May 19, 2008

Jo and I got MarioKart for the Wii over the weekend, and we've had a blast steering away from the couch. So far Jo is much better at running into walls than she is finishing races, but she'll get there--and if the other video games we've played together are any indication, she'll get there very quickly. In the meantime, I can still enjoy beating the pants off her.

So today, on a whim, I logged on to the free MarioKart online player connection board, and was quickly transported to a game with 12 other players from around the world, including one player from Japan! It's pretty cool--before the race begins, it highlights the general location of all the players on a globe and shows you their Mii icons. It was awesome playing against live players from around the world.

Until they beat the pants off me. I think I need more solo practice.

In the meantime, if anyone out there has MarioKart Wii and wants to play, drop me an e-mail and we'll set up an online game together! Only I'm always Luigi . . .

Oooooh. Send the game with Wendi and Jo next time they come out this way, please.
