Super Smash Bros for 3DS/Wii U
SSBWiiU release date changed in the UK!

Now a week... earlier! :D

The Wii U Topic
Here in the United States Walmart sells the Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle for just 300 bucks! Who can resist a deal like that when Super Smash Bros. Wii U is only three weeks away?! :huh:

Kitch-Bent Joystick Gears Review for the N64 Thumbstick
Prepare to become a celebrity kartmaster cuz I just posted your excellent video over at Smashboards. As you're no doubt aware, there's a substantial and loyal Super Smash Bros. following who still enjoy playing the game with real N64 controllers so your video will be extremely popular with them. Sit back and watch your YT view counter increment thanks to these devoted enthusiasts. :D

The Wii U Topic
^ The Wii U certainly needs a legitimate LOZ game to boost sales. SSBWiiU will help the console finish strong this year but an immersive Zelda title is what will make the Wii U a must-have system.

Personally, I want an on-line multiplayer Star Fox game that lets me use either the gamepad, Wii U Pro Controller or the GameCube Controller.

@Grizz: I used lithium grease for lube. Not because I heard great things. Mostly because it was lying around and my other choices included motor oil, or bearing grease. So I don't know if it's the BEST lube choice. But it's definitely better than nothing at all.
Try using ceramic grease in the future. It really reduces friction between moving plastic parts. I use it on all my controllers that I play Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 64 with and it's helped keep the sticks tight even under heavy use.

Excellent review, kartmaster! :yeah:

BTW, what product did you use to lubricate your parts?

Super Smash Bros Save Problem
How are you connecting the battery to the circuit board? My guess is that either the positive or negative lead isn't making proper contact.

Just as an aside; part of the reason I downloaded SSB to my Wii is so I wouldn't have to deal with battery issues ever again. I worked too hard to unlock Luigi to see him slip away because of a dead battery. :rofl:

The Xbox One Topic
My apologies, buddy1983. My intention was not to offend but to discuss the Xbox One's price drop with respect to its implications on the broader video game market.

I played the heck out of Halo 2 back in the day and still consider it a landmark game. I bought my Xbox 360 primarily to play Halo 3, however, I didn't care much for Halo 4 and its attempt to become more like the newer Call of Duty titles. If I want to play COD I'll buy COD.

@Grizz, unless my Wii U decides to let me play online then unfortunately that won't be happening. I really don't know what's going on with it. Just can never find a game in any region. Tried when it came out but to no avail, only a couple of games before it never let me play online again ;_;
Sounds like an issue with your wireless router. Have you checked your firewall settings?

Maybe fellow countryman Boomdiers can help you get everything set up if the issue turns out to be related to your ISP.

Back on topic: The Xbox One may be a good console but here in the U.S. many gamers are choosing to go with the PS4 instead. Sony's console is more powerful so it's the better choice for discriminating gamers. Nintendo realizes this and that's why they're relying on the strength of their first-party titles to carry them through this holidays.

Somebody forgot to tell Microsoft that Master Chief and Halo are played out and that the Halo franchise doesn't have the power to make people run out and buy a XB1. Most FPS fans have pretty much moved on to the COD games and even they seem pretty stale now.

Mario Kart 64
Mario Kart 64 is the epitome of local multiplayer gaming in the 1990's. My friends and I played it near religiously up until on-line gaming got big in the early 2000's.

The Xbox One Topic
I suspect that Halo: The Master Chief Collection hasn't sparked the kind of excitement that Microsoft had hoped for. My friend at Gamestop tells me that the new Call of Duty game and Super Smash Bros. Wii U are both doing much better with respect to presales.

In my very humble opinion, the death knell may be starting to ring for the ill conceived Xbox One.
I find that very hard to believe mate. They'll be absolutely fine. I'm sure there are plenty of people (myself included) that have the Xbox One firmly in there sights as a future purchase :D
If you start joining our Mario Kart 8 races on Friday nights it'll make you forget all about picking up an Xbox One. ;)

Who knows what'll eventually happen but there's undoubtedly trouble in Microsoftland if they're lowering the price of the XB1 just before the official start of the holiday shopping season here in the States.

The Xbox One Topic
I'm hearing from my sources that Microsoft is desperate to grow the installed userbase of the XB1 and that's why they're dropping the price. The PS4 is just too formidable a competitor and the Wii U has a killer holiday lineup so Microsoft has to do something major to stand up against them.

In my very humble opinion, the death knell may be starting to ring for the ill conceived Xbox One.

We have been on a bit of a hiatus, but we'll get it going again once DL pack #1 is released.
I'm thinking Nintendo will release DLC pack #1 on or around November 9th so as not to interfere with the launch of SSBWiiU on 11/21/2014. Just a guess though. >_<

Looking forward to doing some more Friday night races. It can be a lot of fun when we get a good number of people to join.

My favorite game on the N64 and still one of the best Mario Karts ever released on a home console or handheld. :yeah:
