I don’t know how long I can hack this. I keep crashing down the ranks on the final lap from good positions....

God knows what happened there, was routinely finishing in the top 6 then those last 6 races I finished 11th or 12.

Didn't do too bad. Made some decent comebacks, at least. And still managed third overall.
Great fun as always.

Cracking action - thanks for joining the show, everyone! We had a total of thirteen (13!) racers and it was all-out combat... these Kart sessions are getting pretty popular now :-).

I like Pedz' accent. The south Wales lilt has a certain good-natured quality to it. Even when he gets angry at the myriad red shells coming his way.

Or when a certain person ploughs through him with a starman after achieving a slipstream boost.

I just ordered this as it was cheaper on Amazon today (plus had a voucher). So it should arrive Monday in theory.

That's great, Sandy - from now on your Monday nights will be fillled with disappointing and frustrating moments as you wrestle and rage at the online kart sessions. Brilliant! :) .

I've only really played the Wii version, so will no doubt suck.

Don't sweat it, Sandy - as long as you're prepared to spend time learning the tracks, recognise that some of the GRcadian players have kart strategies hard-wired into their bodies and that the game will shaft you on occasion, you'll soon enjoy playing :toot: .

Check out the opening post for details on how to join the sessions and take part in the Discord chat :) .

Hey, I'm sure you all laugh your heads off whenever you manage to beat one of us pro racers. That's enjoyment, right?
Even more so if you manage to knock us back to the lower half of the pack.

That's probably going to give you some time to unlock some nice karts to use next week, though!

I'd say they're good, but not particularly flashy or anything. You have all characters unlocked from the get-go (except for Gold Mario) and the karts don't have as big of an effect on your handling as the characters. The way they drift does differ more, though.

There is a massive amount of stuff to unlock, though. I still end up unlocking new karts each week I play with GRcade.

Pfft... Unlocking something flashier. Standard all the way.

By "Standard", you mean "Pipe Frame", right?
