Let's all play Maka Wuhu and not cheat!

To celebrate the newly patched Mario Kart 7, we're going to play it tonight in our latest NWR Community Night. The fun starts at 9 p.m. Eastern/6 Pacific (1 a.m. UTC for oohhboy and any other overseas readers who want in on it). 

You can exchange friend codes in the Talkback below, or go stock up in the official NWR 3DS Friend Code thread. You can also add the Nintendo World Report Community Code, which is 15-7711-2023-1792 for Grand Prix at 150cc with All Items.

We do these Wi-Fi events every Tuesday night, so please let us know if you have any feedback or other suggestions.

Join us in the chat room during the event. Having trouble? You can also connect with a dedicated IRC client. Server: irc.browsingtheinternet.com Channel: #nwr

A bit short notice, but I wil bite. A preview of what tonight will be like.

Bennett: John! How's your arm John?
Matrix: Come over and find out!
Bennett: No thanks, I think I'll take a pass. John, stick your head out, one shot, right between the eyes, I'll make it quick, just for old time sake.
Matrix: Bennett, stop screwing around and let the girl go, it's me that you want, I only have one arm, you can beat me!

Matrix: Come on Bennett, throw away the chicken shit gun, you don't just want to pull the trigger, you want to put the knife in me, and look me in the eye, and see what's going on in there when you turn it, that's what you want to do, right?
Bennett: I can kill you John!
Matrix: Come on, let the girl go, just between you and me, don't deprive yourself of some pleasure, come on Bennett, let's party!
Bennett: I can beat you, I don't need the girl hahah, I DON'T NEED THE GIRL!

Bennett: I don't need the gun John. I can beat you. I DON'T NEED NO GUN!

I can never attend these community nights because of work. Nuts.

Same here.

Hopefully there will be some staff members to supervise this community night.

I hope there are community nights for Heroes of Ruin when it finally releases. The game looks so good!

I always want to participate in these races, but I always forget or I’m out of town. Do actual staff members participate regularly, or is it more of a designated time that NWR patrons primarily partake in?

@oohhboy  Who doesn’t love Commando? My friend always reminds me of Sully.

There was one real winner tonight and it was the Pack™. It took no prisoners and gave no favors. Utterly ruthless.

For me the last 2 GPs didn't really work out as the laws of physics started to breakdown in my game. At no time during then couldn't I even be sure of a person position in front of me. I lived in a world where an equal and opposite reaction didn't exist.

Now for a special message.

NICHOLAS, if you are reading this if you want to play some games, stop starting games. Stop it. Don't bother showing up if you are going to keep doing it. Go away.

For those wondering about other games: Yes, we will totally do other games.

As a matter of fact, we'll do a Mario Tennis Open one in two weeks (it comes out a few days later in everywhere but North America).

When Heroes of Ruin comes out, we will definitely do some Community Nights. Also, if there are any other games that aren't in the rotation (so like, things that aren't Kid Icarus and MK7) that you want to play, bring it up. If we have support, we'll do it.

Finally I was able to remember and join in. I only raced in about 3 GP's but it was fun!

Anyone race WUSHU*MATT? Some of those I did really well, and a few others it was like the whole world was against me holding me back.

Yeah, I remember. I think the host machine moved too far from me and lag was playing all sorts of mayhem on my end. Had Karts bouncing around, fly around side to side, drive without inertia, drive off cliffs but not, hyper speed blue shells.

Even if I wanted to win or place, the game was tripping out so much it was pretty much impossible.
