I'm racing as PEPSI BLUE.

Man, I haven't picked it up yet but I'm sure I will. And I'm sure I will as usual not actually be very good against humans.

Given that my five-year-old son utterly humiliates me at Mario Kart, I suspect that I'll need to put in some serious Kart-time before I'm ready for this...

Oh I'm asking for this for Christmas. I hope Santa brings it. If so, I'll join.

Ah'm a gonna ween!

I'm looking forward to hitting you all with a red shell/lightning bolt/blue shell combo right after you jump over a jump.

You might want to also put some info up on the wiki page for Gamer IDs.

Such show offs... enjoy your computer game wizardry... wish I had one, but I'm against black magic and I hear Nintendos give you abortions.

I so wish I could be a part of this. I don't own a 3DS and am saving my money to finally get a 360 and buy me some SKyrim (and get back my old games from the roommate who had his own 360.)

I kick massive amounts of ass at Kart, though. Unfair amounts. So maybe this is good for the rest of you really.

I'm so jealous...

Navelgazer, the way I see it, you could take an arrow to the knee, or hundreds of blue shells to the face.

I'll leave it to you to decide which is the better option.

I used to be a kart racer like you...

Ooh, count me in! I was hoping someone would start a MeFi league :)

And here I am, really wishing that someone would set up a server so I can kick some Kart64 ass.

I'm such an old man.

You people are lucky I only play Double Dash on the gamecube (which, weirdly, I played just this morning for the first time in over a year, well before I saw this post) because I am pretty much Shiva the world destroyer of Mario Kart.

Who's winning? (Also, is there a site where people put serious bets down on these things, like a 1950's style drag race? Not that I'm interested in gambling myself, but I'd like a peek through the window.)

I showed up to kick some arse but no one was there. Do I win by default?

I hope this is one where Nintendo brings back Baby Park.
