Mario Kart Lives, One Company Should Burn

   0
Remember the day when you had your Gamecube? Wasn't that a fun experience? Now you've either moved on to the Wii... or other gaming device. Well yesterday was a very interesting experience for me. Why's that? Well...

Remember the Nintendo Gamecube Broadband Adapter? Nintendo sold this seperatly so that you could hook your Gamecube to the internet. However the only internet enabled game that I remember was Phantasy Star Online. But the Broadband adapter had another use, LAN parties.

I came into my college gameroom the other day to see a group of people attaching Broadband adapters to the school's Gamecubes and attaching them to a router. Curious I went over to see what the comotion was about, seeming I wanted to use one of them for Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life.

The great students decided to hook up all four Gamecubes for one giant Mario Kart: Double Dash LAN Party. When an opportunity like this comes along you do not go, "Well tough, I want to play." Instead the answer is, "Well hell, sign me up."

Let's just say I kicked some serious behind. Our combination, Mario as the driver, Diddy Kong throwing items. There was not one inch of the road that wasn't covered with a banana peel of some kind. Needless to say, Mario Kart LAN Parties are fun.

But then I have to go onto my second topic which made the day really interesting. I live in Baltimore, MD and I commute to college every day. As I was stuck on I-95 (isn't rush hour fun), my sister spotted a van far down the road. But it wasn't just any van, it was a van with Mario on it. That's right, take a look for yourself (I did remove the phone number)




Yup, D&R Mechanical in the Baltimore area has decided to take Mario, give him Luigi's shirt, and slap him on their vans. Isn't this illegal? Someone please tell me that this is. Mario will always remain a plumber not a mechanic, rulling out him being a carpenter, a referee, into sports, illegeal racing, yeah the list could go on.

I just thought this was funny and are awaiting the lawsuit that could come about.

That is all.

About Kazooalooone of us since 10:08 PM on 01.16.2007

Hey there. So this is the bio of myself, Kazooaloo, right? Well, here goes... I guess.

I've been a gamer for most of my life, but I also like social time. As far as hardcore gaming goes, forget it. I'm the last to enter a battle, and usually the first that dies. However I have learned the trick of playing with people that are worse than you just to make yourself feel better.

I like writing game reviews, and on occassion post them here on Destructoid. The way I write blog posts or reviews is if I was talking to someone in person. I'm usually the kind of person who uses sarcasm and humor profoundly. But it is also hard to convey sarcasm when someone's reading text and not listening to someone talk. I also like voice acting, regardless of what the content is. I'm also a self-taught artist who, in my opinion, needs a lot of work at it. Although a lot of people have liked my Rabbids drawings. I'm also working on getting my comic, Lined Paper Syndrome, back up and running.

Take care and enjoy.
