Mario Kart 7 Community News: February Edition

I’m afraid I haven’t been able to join the community nights of the past two weeks, and I probably won’t make it tonight, either. But I picked up on plenty of news before that, so that’s what I’m going off of right now.

First off, I must apologize to Chris of Texas for tanooki tailing you right at the end of Wii Koopa Kape for the closest win I have ever witnessed. Seriously, I don’t think it gets closer than that. It was an act of desperation, and it worked, but I don’t think I deserved the win.

Last I checked, the community was thriving. I played a set of four races with several other players. After winning on the first track, I thought, “Okay! I’m not half bad even with a larger group of racers!” However, the score after all four races begged to differ. I was humbled to see such a great group of racers on the community (like I said, however, this was a few weeks ago).

In other news, I have been dethroned, points-wise. It’s a really odd story, though: after playing a few tracks on the community a few weeks ago, my score mysteriously dropped from 296 to 234. But I did finally discover what the screaming statues in DK Jungle are there for. It was a disappointment to find out that they don’t topple over like they do in Donkey Kong Country Returns: instead, they blow out a stream of air that hinders anyone foolish enough to get caught in them.

Well, have fun tonight, racers! Know that I would much rather be on the community tonight than to do what I’m doing, but real life beckons, and no one can ignore it. Next week!
