When you say 'sweat fest', do you mean you prefer getting matched with lower skill players so you can get easy wins?

As for lag, check your connection.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

@Shane76 I haven't had that problem and I mean this is the nature of online play. If you don't want to race against real people that know the tricks to be competitive then there is always single player against AI. I agree online is very tough compared to AI but I love it. It makes me race harder and that first time you win and get to wear the crown in intermission feels awesome!

So I am thinking of getting this game but I have a few questions first before I double dip

1) Is there split screen play if so how many?

2) For splitscreen play if there is that is what combination of controllers will I need for 4 players. I only have the Joy Cons that came with my Switch. So can two people use one of the Joy Cons each and I can get a couple of pro controllers for two more players?

@Tasuki Yeah, 4 player local split-screen multiplayer - even in tabletop mode (but 'Online' mode is 2 player only, locally) - and it supports single Joy-Con play as well (so you could do what you suggested and have 1 player using the left Joy-Con, 1 player the right and the other 2 using Pro's)

@NaviAndMii Yeah Online only suits me but not my family we like to have 4 player offline matches. With the joy cons seperate do you have to use the motion control like in a steering wheel or can you press the buttons as normal?

@Tasuki Oh, that's okay then - 4 player local is supported, as is 2 player online ..and, yeah, you don't need motion controls on (even if using single Joy-Con) - 2 face buttons are used for accelerating/braking, one shoulder button for drifting, the other for weapons and the stick for steering - and this method is surprisingly comfortable too, especially with the (provided) wrist-straps on or if used with the (optional) wheel accessory! ..should be absolutely fine

In a suprise twist (didn't ask for anything gaming related this year), I recieved this from my brother for Christmas!

It's a pretty fun time (and definitely a looker!), but I'm not sure when I'll really have the time to dig into it, since I'm currently engrossed in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Despite picking this game up at launch (and owning the Wii U game previously) I've only gotten to invest some real time into it over the past month or so. I've managed to three-star all the Grand Prix Cups up to and including Mirror. I'm now about to embark on 200cc and also tackle the Time Trials. I was wondering if anyone had tips for best character and vehicle set ups to tackle the Time Trials e.g. Is it ideal to use the same set-up as the staff ghosts or not etc. Is a particular character and kart and wheels best for 200cc etc. Cheers.

@Lroy The staff ghosts are just doing whatever; it's not beneficial to copy them. Exactly what's optimal depends on the track, but generally it's a good idea to use a heavyweight character and lightweight vehicle parts. Going for pure speed is actually not a good idea because it kills your miniturbo duration. Of course, pure acceleration is also a valid choice for making 200cc races less punishing.

Also, as a general tip for 200cc, there are many little shortcuts you can take by getting a miniturbo and jumping over grass to cut corners and the like.

Available for online play around 7-10PM UK time most weekdays, whenever on weekends.

@Lroy I don't think it matters too much with your Kart setup for time trials. Personally I just went with my normal setup, which is a fairly even balance of all the stats. It can sometimes take a few tries to get them but most aren't too hard. As long as you use your mushroom on a shortcut for each lap you shouldn't have many issues.

For 200cc, when you're first starting out I'd recommend a setup with good acceleration and handling, not focusing much on speed. You'll already be going fast enough, and most of the time extra speed will just make you fly off the edge if you aren't used to it. Also don't be afraid to hold break and acceleration while drifting around corners if you feel you won't make it. Once you get really good at 200cc it's pretty fun to find shortcuts. There's plenty of places that require mushrooms in other 50-150cc that you can just plow right through without slowing down much in 200cc. You should look up some Youtube videos on the shortcuts because it'll really change way you play.

Hey guys,

Regarding farming coins for deluxe, I've just tried to do 48 200cc vs games with 4 players on auto turn and auto acceleration, no coms or items but when it was finished I checked my coin count and it hadn't changed... In the last update did Nintendo patch this?!

I've posted a few ideas lately (I've had a lot of free time recently), but here's another one.

Of course there have been comments made that we'll have more updates coming for MK8D. I wanted to take it a step further and think about more DLC. It's a good moneymaker and given the popularity of this game, even this long after its release, I think a $25/30 DLC pack could make some money.

My thoughts for this are similar to the idea of SSBU... make the Ultimate edition. With that, I imagine the inclusion, or at least honorable references to all playable characters of the past (I'll note below), as well as some good retro course. But, to make it truly worth the value, you have to have new content, including more special guests.

The broad stroke:
6 new Grand Prix cups (24 tracks, 16 retro, 8 new)
8 new Battle courses (4 retro, 4 new)
2 character alternate skins
6 new characters
6 new vehicles

New Characters:
Birdo (stat clone of Yoshi)
Kamek (stat clone of Iggy)
Pauline (stat clone of Peach)
Diddy Kong (stat clone of Bowser Jr.)
Kirby (stat clone of Shy Guy)
Samus (stat clone of Waluigi, to celebrate Metroid Prime 4)
Captain Toad (alternate for Toad)
Paratroopa (alternate for Koopa Troopa)

New Vehicles:
New Donk City Taxi (Kart)
Samus' Gunship (Kart)
Jaxi (Cycle)
Warp Star (Cycle)
DK Barrel (ATV)
Magic Wand (ATV)

New Cups and Tracks:
Odyssey Cup: Fossil Falls, Forgotten Isle, New Donk City, Mount Volbono (All Kingdoms from Odyssey)
Moon Cup: Peach Circuit (GBA), Mushroom Bridge (GCN), Mushroom Gorge (Wii), Honeylune Ridge
Sunshine Cup: Kalimari Desert (N64), Daisy Cruiser (GCN), Shy Guy Bazaar (3DS), Mario Circuit 4 (SNES)
Jungle Cup: Koopa Beach 2 (SNES), Coconut Mall (Wii), Shroom Ridge (DS), Tropical Freeze
Dream Cup: Broken Pier (GBA), Rosalina's Ice World (3DS), Waluigi Pinball (DS), Dream Land
Metroid Cup: Banshee Boardwalk (N64), Ghost Valley 3 (SNES), Moonview Highway (Wii), Metroid Ship

Battle Courses:
Block Fort (N64)
Pipe Plaza (GCN)
Galaxy Colosseum (Wii)
Honey Hive (3DS)
Pac-Maze
Nintendo Land
Petey Piranha's Castle
Tosarena

Thoughts? Would you pay $30 for a DLC package like this for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

@DarkSim01 I think this could be released as a new mario kart rather than dlc. I do like all of your suggestions. Mushroom Gorge is one of my favorite tracks

Absolutely! This would be a great expansion to the game. I'm sure Nintendo must be working on something new to do with Mario Kart, but I wonder whether it will be DLC for MK8D or if it will be a brand new game.

I know it's a lot, but for $30, and the game already being made, I think it could work.

@ReaderRagfish
I have a feeling they're putting a lot of focus on the mobile game and, if that's the case, we might have to wait longer for MK9. This could fill the gap nicely. The game definitely isn't perfect. But it's gotten new life on Switch and is easy to replay with friends.
