In my hands


Impressions after The Office.


Well, as Will and Thomas have pointed out – Nintendo’s servers appear to be getting slammed. This is both good (a lot of people trying to play) and bad (they weren’t prepared for the onslaught). Come on, Nintendo! People have been clamoring for an Online Nintendo Experience for years! Anyway, I’m going to keep playing the single player game for now and I’ll try getting back online later. Wi Fi setup was pretty simple and I’m itching to get on! For those who make it on, my friend code is:

4 3 8 1 4 6
1 4 7 8 7 7

This might explain it:

Update 2: Woohoo! I finally got into a game with other racers, racing was smooth as silk and a blast! Nevermind it took me FOREVER to finally get into a game. All that’s water under bridge. The four races were pretty competitive. I fell WAY behind in race #2 on the Rainbow Track but actually recovered to finish second. In the end, I tied another racer named Charlie (I think that was his name) for first. I wanted to continue but it’s late and my low-battery light started flashing. I will be on in the future! Let me know what kind of experiences you guys had.

See you in Wi-Fi land!


  1. Nice, huh?

    If the WiFi actually works later, my friend code is:

    1 4 6 0 8 8
    3 6 3 7 8 5

  2. 0 4 7 3 0 4
    1 2 0 6 4 9

    I’d love to play online if their servers would let me πŸ™

  3. See, here’s the thing: wouldn’t it be nice if you could check the WFC status from the game? Kind of a pain that it wouldn’t connect, and I wondered why until I loaded the site.

    To be expected, I guess, but still frustrating.

  4. I finally got on this morning, but had to drop after a race. It was very smooth, but you’re right–takes forever to make a match. I’ll try it at a free wifi point at lunch today.

  5. My code is:

    Looking forward to racing you!

  6. Added all you buttonmashers to my friends list. πŸ™‚

  7. I am so behind. Added you all.
