Apparently, if someone finds your emblem offence they can phone Nintendo and tell them your name and what the emblem was and Nintendo will take action against you, in whatever form they see fit. Can't remember where I read that.

But... you can't be traced on Nintendo Wi-fi Connection, and you can just change your name and... well EVERYONE has a penis for as their emblem.

Well I didn't know that, and I don't have the game or a DS yet so whatever. I'm gonna write bad words on the front of mine, and change them weekly or something.

Mine's a painstakingly rendered mini version of my logo

Have added your friend code Cyberg so I look forward to some races soon.

Played N64 Mario Kart for the first time ever tonight. Played 4 player and it was AWFUL!!! It ran at like 12fps, looked like it was all sprites and handles like you were driving through treacle. I'm surprised it ever saw the light of day!!!

Try it in less then 4 players
12fps x 4 rendered views is quite good for the N64

It's shocking imo! If the N64 cn't handle the detail then they shoudn't have made the bloody thing 4 player. It really is unplayable after the DS version!

I dissagree
4 player Mario Kart 64 was highly enjoyable.
Good handeling, nice selection of tracks.Fantastic battle modes.
It was certainly a bette gamer then double dash. (allthough DD did have nicer weapon system).

Diddy Kong Raceing was the only thing that beat MK64 in terms of multiplayer, imo.

Just because you have expirenced something better, it seems worse then it is.
Its like GB/GBAs, I never had a problem with them without a backlight and could see them fine *untill* I got an SP, and then found it hard to use without one.
Once you get readjusted its fine.

I still get the music from that game stuck in my head every now and then, but I haven't played it in years.

Yup.Great music indeed.
I loved the whole concept of adventure mode as well.

Its a real shame Microsoft bought up Rare before they released "Donkey Kong Raceing"

I still got the trailer to that game on my HD.

If anyone is up for a bit o' Mario Kartin... my friend code:

420968
311610


Darkflame, Monkey and Cyberg, you've all been added.

I also have Animal Crossing coming soon.

Just played my first online game. Lost every race (by very narrow margins), but had great fun. I'll probably be on later this evening.

My emblem has changed. I figured some people might take offence to my ejaculating penis.

Can anyone explain to me how the scoring system works? first I had 0 wins and 5 losses and I got those losses by disconnecting during games (first time after 3 races, another time after 2, 1 loss per race when you disconnect?). Then I won a race so I had 1 wins, 5 losses, won another one and got 2-5, but then I won another one (just after winning the fourth race the other player disconnected) and it was 3-4 (yes one of my losses dissapeared. This morning I played again and won again, 4-4. I raced the same guy again and during the fourth race (after me winning the first 3 and I was going to win that aswell ) he disconnected but nothing happened now. my score is still 4-4. I don't understand the system at all. Anyone want to explain it to me?

Edit: lost another race so it was 4-5 and then entered another race with 2 other people and became second and now it's 6-6. wth?

If you win against someone you previous lost from, maybe it cancels?

Or maybe its something odd internaly, like disconnects are "soft loses" (games trying to work out if you did it on purpose or not)

got the game, but because it likes to mock me, my wireless router isn't working, maybe tonight though, when I find out my friend code I'll post it.
