Some Online Mario Kart (7) “WTF?!” Moments – For Your Pleasure (Part 1 of 2)

Don’t let the picture fool you. This isn’t about a simple Blue Shell, Lightning Bolt, or Bullet Bill crashing into you at the worst possible moment during an online race. That’s standard fare, after all. Everyone’s been down that road before. Oh, no – this is about those rare strings of events that take place both outside and within races which seem so…unfathoma...

Hope to see you tonight, racers!

The time has come to revive the ol’ Infendo Mario Kart 7 Community! I was able to make it to the past two community nights, and what I saw I didn’t like.  Of course, a big thanks to those of you who did make it, but I want to see more groups of 6-8 racers. Also, I wanted to add a little something this week to see how it goes: a late shift. Can’t make it at 7:00 PM US-Eastern time...

How much would you pay for Mario Kart DLC?

There are only a couple dozen tracks in Mario Kart 7 for 3DS, so I got to thinking about DLC downloadable tracks for the game. I think I’d be willing to pay around $5 for each new “cup” of four courses. Of course, this would create a question around the inclusion of these courses in the online aspect of the game. Do you think this is a good idea and how much would you be willing ...

Mario Kart 7 Community News: January Edition

First of all, let me thank everyone who has participated in our official Infendo community so far. It’s not the most popular community ever, but I’ve gotten more enjoyment out of it than any other community I play in. With that out of the way, I now have some great community news to report! As of today, 17 players have found their way into community races. We reached a record during ou...

About our Mario Kart 7 community nights…

Community Code: 20-1691-6700-3942 I was glad to see that, even though I only encountered about two other racers during our first MK 7 community night, other racers have found chances to duke it out with each other on the Infendo community. I’m determined to keep the steam going, so here’s my proposal for community nights: plan on them every Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. US-Eastern unless...

Let’s have our first Mario Kart 7 community night, shall we?

Community Code: 20-1691-6700-3942 Here’s what I propose: Saturday, December 17; 7:00 p.m. US/Eastern. There’s no way we can arrange for a time that suits everyone, but if you miss out, don’t worry: this won’t be the last community night! I do want to hear some feedback, though. Will you be able to make it? Should we have it sooner? Comment away, racers.  

Take your kart-racing online and join Infendo’s Mario Kart 7 Community!

Community Code: 20-1691-6700-3942 Joining a community in Mario Kart 7 is very simple. In the main menu, select “Online Multiplayer” (you’ll need to be connected to the internet, of course). From the online menu, select “Communities”, then select “Search by Code”. Enter in the community code found at the top of this post and join in. Hope to see you there!

Playing with power again: Nintendo having a heck of a run this holiday

After one of its worst years since the early ’80s, Nintendo is finishing strong these last couple of months by releasing really good games that are rewarded with strong sales. The company released the marvelous Zelda: Skyward Sword this month, followed by a strong Mario outing for 3DS. Up next: Mario Kart 7, which is also garnering very positive reviews early on. What’s more, Nintendo ...

Reggie gets his ride pimped at L.A. Auto Show

Nintendo Press Release – 11/10/2011 Nintendo will be making an unlikely pit stop at the 2011 LA Auto Show, marking the video game company’s first-ever appearance at an automotive trade show. Members of the media are invited to an exclusive presentation by Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime and special guest Ryan Friedlinghaus, founder and CEO of West Coast Customs, to unveil an...

Mario Kart 7 doesn’t have a colon

Mario Kart 7 is the first numbered edition of this game. The other six entries in this series don’t carry a numerical indicator, just a name, colon, or game system name. Mario Kart for GameCube was fun because some people just referred to it as Double Dash, but the DS and Wii versions just tacked the respective system’s name onto the title. So why did Nintendo choose to call this editi...

Nintendo should sell official ringtones

Is it just me, or is Nintendo missing out on some decent cash by not selling official ringtones and text message alert tones? Not to mention a complete lack of Nintendo game soundtracks over on iTunes, which is something Richard brought up last month. I’m always surprised to walk into a board game store or Target and see cheapo RC cars for Mario Kart and other sketchy merchandise when they c...
