The nine Mii characters you see listed above comprise almost everyone who participated in last night’s Mario Kart 8 tourney (minus a friend who played locally with me). Our numbers weren’t great, but there was plenty of fun to be had anyway. Kevin was the first to arrive, and others continued to join over the following hour or so.
There were some great karting skills on display; Kevin, Tommy, and Mike proved themselves the ones to beat, but Kendall and Roboxer also held their own. Jason and mom were back and forth, but kudos to them for sticking it out! They probably understand what many of us competitive types don’t: that video games are meant to be enjoyed more than anything! On that note, I feel I must add that I really don’t deserve the number one slot; I’m only there because I was able to rack up a great amount of additional points after the main group left!
I had to leave the tourney briefly to see my friend off, so apologies there. I came back to an empty room (understandably) but stuck around until the end in case anyone else came by for a race or two. My patience was rewarded: about an hour before the tourney ended, Seacor showed up and joined me for a great many more races! Since it was just the two of us, the racing was pretty relaxed, which I appreciated, as it gave me even more of a chance to gawk at the beautiful new DLC tracks.
Thanks to everyone who joined! The evening was a big success, as far as I’m concerned.
