The thing is more that it contrasts with the character, and it's easy to generate humorous content based off of Luigi being secretly evil.

I don't think the other characters look particularly nefarious during their "drive-by" animations.

I'm not going for 3 stars per se, I just want the gold kart, so one star is enough.

There's only two cups left I need to ace: The Mirror Special and Mirror Lightning Cups.
It doesn't matter if you take first place three times, if you come in fifth or sixth on rainbow route, you just won't make it =(

I also have more than 2600 coins. By the time I finish a mirror rainbow route in first or second place, I'll probably have all 2800 needed to unlock all parts. Next up will be time trials.... Groan.

I've always wondered why Time Trials are so addicting for others. The last time I ever really went out of my way for them was for the three staff ghosts in 64. Otherwise, I've lost interest.

Personally unless there's a ranking of your friends, I couldn't care less about time trials and scoring shit.

You get the gold kart by getting one star on anything?

It's for the gold tires =/
I dislike time trials with a passion.
The other option is gathering 15k coins, but hell no.

You need at least one star for each cup on 150cc and mirror.

Ohh so 10k gold is only one way to get the gold kart.

Doing everything with atleast one gold star sounds much faster to be honest XD

How excactly does that work with the gold tires and the time trial ?

That would be the Gold Glider.

There is no other way to get it.

If you beat all the staff ghosts in all the time trials you get the Gold Tires.

Another way to get the Gold Tires is gathering 15.000 coins.

Oh there are three gold parts.


So the gold tires either take really long or just some skill
cause if you are bad there is only the 15.000coins option

I hate this game.

This is the 7th time I get in first place on all courses of the Special Cup but get butchered from 1st to 6th (or 5th) place in the last corner of Rainbow Route by a blue shell and various other items.

I figured out a location that forces the "big air" jump I keep talking about. During the anti-grav section of Wario Stadium, if you trick off of the higher end of the ramp at the end of it, you're guarateed the super fancy tricks.

Peach's one has her jump above the bike and face the player while thrusting her arm in the air, Rosalina's is the awesome flip I keep talking about that hooked me on her. Check 'em out!

I will!

The blue shells, oh God why the blue shells. Inches before the finish line, first to fifth. Bye bye star.

HRRGRRGBGRR

Four new cups, and playable Link! (Also Animal Crossing characters, and 3D World costumes and Dry Bowser.)

It's kinda lame that the Blue Falcon is available but Captain Falcon is not.

Four new cups though! Possibly some good bikes other than The Orange! SO EXCITED

It's literally just a texture change. Mario Tennis for the 3DS had the same thing for Yoshis.

You can pre-purchase them now, in fact.

Oh? Well, I'll have to wait anyway since I can't access my WiiU until I get back home in about 2 weeks (hopefully).

It doesn't really get you anything extra, but I thought I'd bring it up.

Really? People are actually doing that? Or is the random AI selection just really bad now because of all the "new" characters?
