I'm heading to the beach tomorrow morning so I won't be able to make it.

The Wii U Topic
In all honesty, I'm somewhat disappointed by Mario Kart 8 but I'm still holding out high hopes for Super Smash Bros. Wii U. Maybe when it's released this winter we can work it in to our Friday night rotation of North America versus Australia tournament of champions? :lol:

KID ICARUS!!! Both are pretty hard, but Kid Icarus is a BRILLIANT game. The music is enduring, Pit is cool, the controls are decent, the characters are well done (REAPER! and Baby reapers!) as are the many levels, and the game play is Nintendo hard, but fun.

Took your advice and downloaded Kid Icarus this morning. So I now have three games for my Wii U and two I got free. NICE!

Clear Gamecube Controller with Clear Sticks
Sexy! :blink:

Wii discussion
Since a Craig's List seller sold me an original series backwards compatible Wii for just $8.00 I now have one connected to my big screen TV again. Such a great console to enjoy so many of my favorite GameCube games like Melee, Double Dash and F-Zero GX. :yeah:

Movies and Television
New trailer for the next Mad Max. :w00t:

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is the movie that originally sparked my interest in the Australian Outback and high-speed car chases so I'm really looking forward to this new installment.

The Cult of Mario Kart
I'm just the opposite of Bluedog in that it really doesn't matter much what configuration I use I still place about the same when racing on-line. Most of the time I use Wario as my driver although I occasionally swap him out for Donkey Kong.

The Wii U Topic
Which game should I download as my Gold Gift from Nintendo; Ice Climbers or Kid Icarus? I'm not much of a fan of 8-bit games which means I'll probably never complete either one so which is better in the early stages? Thanks.

Oh Kartmaster, you do kinda sound like an old geezer. Digital Distribution is the future, embrace it. ;)

N64 Analog Stick Replacements Test
Nintendo will soon be reissuing the magnificent GameCube Controller, wouldn't it be fantastic if they also started manufacturing and selling N64 controller analog sticks again too? :huh:

If Nintendo can't be convinced to do something like that then it'd be nice if Hori purchased the plans from Nintendo and started selling brand new N64 controllers to the exacting specifications of the originals. They could easily amortize the cost if they also offered USB versions.

Hello Mac Controller

This boxed Hello Mac controller appeared today. It sold for the asking price (through a proxy bidding service) in under 30 minutes:


Does it say Hello Mac on the box?

Post When You Buy or Sell Any Game
Today I picked up a Wii from a Craig's List seller who was only asking eight dollars. It's the white one with the GameCube controller ports so I'm really happy as those are the best for me and my friends to play Melee and Brawl on. This is going to be the Wii I bring when I travel.

Will we ever get perfect reproductions of the original N64 controller's analog stick and the other components seen in this picture?

I will invest some money in a vacuum pump and degassing chamber this year just to reproduce some parts in various colors(mostly transparent). The first thing I will try to reproduce are control stick components. If its going to be successful I will give a few of them to forum members to review.

Keep me in mind as a tester, Zoki. I play N64 games like SSB and MK64 pretty seriously when my friends come over so I could really put your reproductions through their paces.

It would be nice if somebody sold them pre-lubricated with ceramic grease. I can assure you that nearly every Super Smash Bros. fan who still plays the game on the N64 would buy them if they were reasonably priced.

Happy Birthday Kartmaster. :gift:

1970's frickin guitar rock, ya'll.

I'm disappointed that I didn't get to see Bluedog's new kart configuration last night. :(

I joined after 11pm Eastern time for a few races and at one point we had as many as 4 people on including Boomdiers. Everybody was really good so all the races were tight.

Andy, I'm hearing a lot of people say that Frantic Mode is actually more fun than Normal Mode. Are you able to change the N64 Forever tournament's settings so we can test Frantic out?

I always in hopefully more people will come this session
Me too but because of the time we play we end up leaving Europe out of the equation. I am surprised that many of our Canadian members like Lithium haven't joined in on the fun but maybe they don't like the mindless nature of Mario Kart 8.

Please tell me more about that clear GameCube controller in the lower left hand corner of the picture. :huh:

I'm very excited! However, I will wait for the hype to die off and let some real reviews come through before I make the purchase :coffee:
I'm going to do this too. Mostly because I'm not the biggest fan of Musou style games, although I gotta admit that Hyrule Warriors does look like mad fun in the trailers. :)
