Friend codes are tied to a combination of game and DS, so it's iffy if a used game will even work....

My friend code is 133204-365828

yeah. I was under the same impression. thats why I just spent a little more and got a new copy rather than used.

used copies will work. [warez]with the rom, people have reported that the game makes a new friend-code for every time it makes a new save. [/warez]

you should be fine getting a used game. just delete their saved game.

[nods] Good job, sir. Sorry I wasn't very good competition tonight--maybe I'm just overly tired.

Am I the only one who was just slightly disappointed that the game doesn't have any SNES battle mode courses in it? The SNES game is the only version where I felt that Battle Mode was legitimately as fun as the main game--yet they don't design any battle levels like the SNES ones any more. (though the Pipe Plaza is kinda fun...)

I've been wanting to play some of you guys again online in the last few days but I really busted my hand up at work and had to get stitches. In a week or so when they come out, I can't wait to start playing again. :D

Not really--I guess we just happen to be on at the same time the most when we do try. I'm not on anything near daily, but when I am, it's usually somewhere between 9pm and 1am PST.

It seems Nintendo stuck the lame 'snaking' technique into MK like they did into F-Zero... :(

Seems like half the games I've played had people bunny hopping round the tracks continously :?

Nothing terribly serious, it's only 4 stitches, but because of where it is on my hand it makes it uncomfortable to play games for too long.

I was pulling something down off the top shelf while standing on a ladder, I can't remember what happened but somehow the carton squashed my hand onto the edge of the shelving. The weight of the carton caused my hand to be driven into the shelf edge and it ripped into my hand. It's a very jagged cut and not very clean at all. :o If it was a slice that would be fine, but this kinda kept crushing down on my flesh until it broke the skin and tore me up a bit. :lol:

Well I suck online. Ive lost about 8 times and won once. :D Everybody seems to do that 'snaking' thing where you get the power slide boosts while going straight by tightly weaving across the track.

Plus Im sick of those god damn blue shells. I know they are a staple of Mario Kart, but about half of all my losses have been caused by them. They instantly undo all your good work that got you into first place, and you dont seem to be able to defend yourself in any way. Craptastic.

Doing better :)

:o I checked my records today:

VS: 3 wins, 1 loss
Battle: (no records)
WiFi Match: 70 wins, 30 losses

I didn't realize I'd even *played* that many games!

I just found about a half a dozen AP's earlier just going across town. I believe I found 3 motorola AP's, about 5 linksys ap's, and 2 netgear AP's. all open and default (ssid was the mfr. name). I even had more than one AP show up during a scan at a few points. I kept telling my mom that I should get a large map of the town and start jotting down all these AP's for future reference.
