My Mii On Mario Kart Wii

I recently completed all of the tracks in the 50cc racing circuit on Mario Kart Wii.  The cool thing is that you are treated to some closing credits that include your racer zooming around a custom track.  This track has your Mii character blown up to iconic size as a statue in the middle of the ring.  Other Miis on your machine are also featured throughout the track, mostly on signs and billboards.  Once the credits are over, your Mii is shown (in full racing regalia) with Mario and Princess Peach in front of their castle.  I shall devote the rest of my life to looking more like my Mii character (not that he’s not dead-on already).

I Win At Mario Kart Wii

The sad thing is that I’m not that good at Mario Kart yet. I always seem to win (when I find time to play), but I think the Wii is dumbing down the other racers for me. During the credits, I saw many of the characters pull off amazing jumping stunts that I didn’t even know were possible. I admit to never reading the manual, but I’m a guy and guys don’t read manuals. So I’ve got to figure out how to do these things before trying out my mad skills online. There are lots of people on Twitter who play Mario Kart online, so I want to get in on the action, just as soon as I feel that I’m good enough to compete. I’ll have to finish the 100cc and 150cc circuits first and see where I’m at then.

  1. Dude, you ever played a Mario Kart game before?

    50cc is simple, no real challenge unless you’re coordination challenged.

    100cc gets harder, you won’t win as often and you’ll need to learn some of those crazy moves.

    150cc is usually very hard. Seemingly impossible when you start out, but you’ll get the hang of it and learn how to take full advantage of any shortcuts that might exist for the track. Even playing your best, you might not always win, you might even get your a$$ handed to you despite your best efforts.

    How’s the Rainbow Road level in this game?

    Mario Kart DoubleDash for the Gamecube was a really fun game, might be worth a pickup if you can find it cheap, especially since the Wii is backward compatible to the GC right down to being able to plug the controllers into the Wii, a very cool feature.

    Hasta,

  2. I’ve never really liked racing games, and I never played anything on the Nintendo after the SNES. Thanks for the info though, it helps to know that the game has been spoon-feeding me so far. I haven’t seen the Rainbow Road level, but if it’s anything like the Mario Galaxy level, then it’s probably going to be hard. ;)

    Gamecube games are backward compatible with the Wii? I might have to hunt down a copy of Rogue Squadron 2 and Resident Evil 4. I almost picked up a Gamecube when these games first came out. I’ve even heard that remaining Gamecubes were being marked down to $5 at Targets (I looked, but didn’t see any).
