Wii Online Service Funeral Pyre

Embrace the flames!

To help you cope with the encroaching demise of online Wii gaming, your PixlBit family is here to help you send the service off to its eternal existence before it all ends on May 20th. What better game to do this with than one of the few that had a significant online community:  Mario Kart Wii. Join us on Thursday, May 15th starting at 9:00 p.m. EDT to play Mario Kart races until we puke blue shells. If all goes according to plan, we’ll also record the event so you can see how it played out from at least one other person’s perspective. To get in on the fun, just post your Mario Kart code in the comments and we’ll add it to a big list for everyone to tediously enter into their Wiis.

We’ll update the list below periodically, and be sure to add EVERYONE to the list so we can get as many people in a “room” as possible. We’re pretty unsure how popular this will be, but don’t expect overcrowding to be a problem, but you never know.

If you’re not sure how to get your Mario Kart code, just head to the “Select License” screen (right after the title screen) and the code will be beneath your Mii’s name on the license. Remember, this number is not the same as your Wii’s friend code.

I recommend checking the batteries in your Wii remotes and entering codes ahead of time to be ready. We’ll see you there!

UPDATE: Travis and Chris have logged off for the night, but others might still be online for a bit. We had a lot of fun and hope to get some sort of video up soon. CaptainN overwhelmed us all!

I've been thinking about the fact that we should do something like this and I'd would love to join...

But I've got to go to work at 10 PM. The joys of a crappy 3rd shift job never cesist to stop.Cry

Surely you can squeak in a round or two? Go ahead and add your code in case there's a follow up or something else works out.

Added! Hope that's your Mario Kart ID... this is all so confusing.

I will try to get in on this! I work nights, and this weekend I'll be busy at the National Guard, but I think I can grab the game for cheap and convince my friend to join. (she's the one with the wi-fi)

I'll be working, sorry.

Online play will stop but the Wii's store will still be open though, right?

Captain N

So, will you need my Wii code as well cause I think that doesn't work anymore, but I'll post my Wii Code. Now from what I guess, it's probably at 6 my time since it's at the Pacific Time Zone right?

Edit: here's MK Friend Code: 4641-2541-2874 and my name is Gonzalo if you need that but you can use Captain N if you're going to edit the article list.

I'm in.

MK code 1676-9034-7459

Will be racing as my Mii along with name NSonic79

Batteries charged along with reserves. Hope you all are not a bunch of race-snakers.

Vice's Assistant

05/15/2014 at 09:18 PM

We are already in a room I've made. I'll be in it for a little a longer before I go. Sorry

NSonic79

05/15/2014 at 09:25 PM

Okay. will join when your race is over.

Vice's Assistant

05/15/2014 at 09:24 PM

Sorry Capt. N and NSonic, got to go to work. Fun races, though. Sorry I missed you Travis and Chris. Maybe another time before the 20th.

NSonic79

05/15/2014 at 09:26 PM

No prob. Looks like we needed more work if we were to compete with Captain N. GR though!

Captain N

05/15/2014 at 09:41 PM

Sorry for the disconnection everyone, my internet sucks.

NSonic79

05/15/2014 at 09:42 PM

It'ws all good. we can wait. perhaps your driving has something to do with it!

Captain N

05/15/2014 at 11:21 PM

Probably!

Captain N

05/15/2014 at 11:21 PM

Great games everyone, sorry if I went a bit overboard there, I'll try to go easy on you guys next time, either on MKWii, MK7, or MK8.

How could I have forgotten about this?  Dang it

Travis Hawks Senior Editor

05/16/2014 at 08:48 AM

:( We have a few days left if you guys want to agree on a follow up session time.

I think that I pushed this play date from my memory because I do suck at Mario Kart Wii.  I haven't had anywhere near as many issues when I have gone back to play Super and 64.

Intelligent Qube Review Rewind

The original PlayStation console opened new doors of innovation in game development. Its hardware capabilities gave designers greater freedom to present fresh experiences from well-established genres. And in some cases, it would attract outsiders that previously had no background in game development at all. Such was the case with Masahiko Sato- known for his brilliant TV commercials produced in Japan (and a bevy of other talents). Though not a game designer by trade, he created Intelligent Qube- a new type of block puzzle game to challenge curious minds.
