    After the success of last week's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate session, we're back, and ready to host another fun group event! This week, we'll be playing Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. If you've ever wanted to seize sweet victory after destroying your fellow GBAtemp members with a blue shell, be sure to show up at 5 pm CT/10 pm GMT!

    Just like last time, if you want to hang out in the Twitch chat, or participate by playing, there's a fun incentive of 20xp waiting for you! Just make sure you let staff know your GBAtemp username if your Twitch or Switch Online name is different, and leave a screenshot of you playing in a comment below!

    When it's time, boot up Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and add the following friend code, in order to jump into the lobby: SW-3018-5941-3903

    Nice, a game I own. It's at around 3AM in my timezone, I'm sometimes up at that time but It'll be a bit difficult. I'll try though, I wanna rek some scrubs. :D

    Nice, I can't wait to maintain 1st/2nd for the majority of each race, only to end up in 12th place halfway through lap 3! Fun!

    Ah yes, nothing quite like it.

    I'm down to play some Mario Kart. Might be a bit rusty but I'm sure it'll be fun anyway.

    That's very simple to avoid, though I'm not sharing this (probably well known) tip till this thing is over. ;o;

    EDIT: Eh, what the heck. When you get a shell or banana, hold ZL or L to keep the item behind your kart, the red shell will destroy the item, but not your soul.

    Oh a game I don't suck at. Too bad I've got a date. Maybe next week. We should set up a Minecraft server

    Hmm, I don't know. Is Meteor and Luna going to be there? Last time I played with them, I did lose a lot. :ninja:

    If those who play know the best shortcuts, I'm definitely beat. It's been a while.

    Is funny, I never played every mario kart and the ones I did play, surely not enough to remember the tracks. So is just like playing a new game regardless. there is 20 courses exclusive to the game and the other half is from other mario kart games and I memorized none of them. :ninja:

    Feel like my chances are better off in battle mode.:rolleyes:

    Worst Mario Kart game ever, Luigi can literally win it by doing nothing.

    Not sure if sarcastic or not. :P
    Try using smart steering/auto acceleration online or in 150CC. ;o;

    How long are you guys planning to play? Any chance that it will last longer than three hours?

    Smart steering actually makes 200c easier.

    So yeah, this game handholding is a tad too much.

    I still doubt that would help competitively with good players. And besides, that feature is for kids.

    I also want to know if you're expected to stay the whole time. I can't stay up for long.
