So...

Funky Mode playthrough first? Or normal playthrough first? Each one will unlock the associated time trials for that mode.

I was wondering the same thing. I never got round to buying this on Wii U so both modes will be new to me. I think I'm going to start with Classic mode because it's the way the game was originally meant to be played and it has more characters, then try out Funky mode when I'm done. On the other hand that seems a bit backwards because Funky mode is easier.

I read that in Funky mode, you can switch back (temporarily) to a more forgiving version of the normal mode. Did I understand that correctly? That would probably suit me. Play in the normal mode with a bit more health and at the point where it becomes frustratingly hard (I'm not a good gamer ) I can call in the help of funky for a level or 2...

Does it work like that?

May is looking even better!

Wonder when we'll see Shakedown Hawaii, Morphies Law, and Dragon: Marked for Death.

@toiletduck Yes, that’s exactly how it works. Pretty nice

Also, I’ve seen you post stuff before, but for some reason your name never registered for me until I @ed you...lol.

You can't change modes once started (although there are multiple save files and you can start a different mode in the second save file slot), but in Funky Mode you can play as other characters. Since the barrels in the stages are all Funky barrels when you're playing as Funky Kong, the only way you would be able to play as a different character is to select the character you want to play as before you start the stage, similar to time trials.

Which means... playing through Funky mode would allow one to access time trials for all characters. Seems the way to go to me. I still want to play through in the normal mode because I like the challenge but, Funky just looks fun to play as, and I need to see what he can do in timed runs.

@YummyHappyPills I'm sure it's the first of many. Just look at how many times the Wii and 3ds had lawsuits against them. 3ds even had nearly the same thing happen. If this system wasn't as successful we wouldn't be seeing this.

@Spoony_Tech This is a follow up to the lawsuit Gamevice published last year. Basically means now the Trade Comission is investigating Nintendo and whether they will follow up on effectively halting Switch in the US, the results of which would kill over a third of Nintendo's market globally and seriously damage the system.

@YummyHappyPills Iirc I hear the first one is dropped by Gamevice though, so... this probably won't even work?

(Since it's also very different I hear... the Gamevice's one isn't even working if you take it off the tablet iirc)

Also a lawyer student seems to take a look in if Gamevice hold any basis to the lawsuit

@darkfenrir Yeah, but the fact they are opting to investigate is worrying, instead of doing what most of us realise they should do and just throw it out immediately. Patents are so damn vague unfortunately that they can just claim they own detachable controllers.

@YummyHappyPills Yeah that is true, but like... this is somehow not even close at all.

Not even sure why they are investigating this... (at least the investigation will be finished in less than two months?)

@darkfenrir Accepting it is apparently not a statement on the validity of the case, that is to be determined later. Then they investigate it. They need to investigate whether they have a case.

Honestly, it could go either way. Yes Gamevice holds no water because the Joy-Cons do things their controllers cant, but...this is also US law. It can go whatever way common sense be damned XD

Ah I see, TIL.

Hopefully whoever is investigating it look at it objectively! (At the very least, Switch also has no such "bridge" on it too).

@darkfenrir I sure hope so. This is a wait and see. I hope it gets thrown out considering things are finally on the up but...that's the price of success.
