MarioKart Wii is out

Postby LoneWolf on Mon Apr 28, 2008 2:36 pm

Anybody else pick this up?

I've got to get a second Wii Wheel tonight...it makes it easier to get a feel for over/understeer. The game is a blast to play, my wife and I had a lot of fun with it yesterday.

There were a bunch of people waiting at Target this morning for the game. I didn't want to tell them that it came out two days ago. :P

Looking forward to trying it out! I loaded up on Wii Wheels too... going to make it a family affair tomorrow night for my daughters 9th b-day. Which reminds me, I need to get the eneloops in the charger so the Wii remotes are ready to go!

I love Eneloops! I've got 8 AA's and 4 AAA's at the moment. Need to get more!

Since I went to see Iron Man last night, I got up this AM and played Mario Kart Wii with the kids... Must have played for over an hour. I like it as much as Super Smash Brothers Brawl.... and the Wii Wheel will breath new life into Exite Truck!

We use the eneloops in the Wii remotes. I also use them in my Metz and Olympus flash units. Great flash recycle time over standard NiMH or alkaline batteries. We must have about 70 of them in things around the house. Thomas Distributing has pretty good deals on them and the MAHA Imedions and the Uniross Hybrio. All good hybrids... and great for Wii remotes
