@Juampi: Please, you've already posted that information earlier — try to keep it to once a day. If no one has any codes to trade, no one has any, y'know?

Also, you realize that if you make yourself a family account, you can have other 'members' register duplicate games for you, right? that's what I do when I've got duplicate codes to register — all the coins go to the same pool anyway :3

@tbd - It also doesn't make sense that Nintendo is sending his system across the country to fix a problem that shouldn't have occurred in the first place when they could send it to one a lot closer to where he is, probably save a little bit of money on the shipping, and get it back to him quicker.

And again, if the place in LA (or wherever yours went) doesn't have the parts needed in stock at the moment or if they know the backlog there is crazy high right now for whatever reason, it makes sense to spend a bit more in terms of shipping to get it someplace where they know they can have it in and out faster than if they were to send it to the closer place. Just because you can walk down the street to a store and buy a random item doesn't mean you won't wait just as long as you would have if you'd bought it off the internet if they straight-up don't have it in stock for you to purchase, y'know? besides that, i bet they get some kind of sweet flat rate deal with UPS anyway for doing so much business with them. they get repair orders in all the time, so i'm sure they spend quite a bit on shipping.

the bottom line is that it's Nintendo's money to spend, and they're not jerking people around by sending their systems to the far corners of the country for no good reason. Just because we're not privy to what those reasons are doesn't necessarily make them stupid or rage-worthy. I'm sorry you were bored this summer, but them's the breaks.

Have it both ways, then — let people specify whether they glitched or not to get the time they did. It is not fair to count a glitched time as any kind of 'record' against people who choose to play the game fairly, thus an unglitched record, and then for the cheaters they can have their own record time as well. everyone wins.

@Birdman: They're probably thinking of which facility has which parts that will be necessary to fix which problem(s), and also which facility may or may not be less backlogged at the moment. You're not paying for the shipping, and neither is anyone else here, so it's not worth breaking out the bleeped obscenities over. :/

@RYBlast: hit up or down on the d-pad to switch from third to first-person mode. If you have gyro controls enabled (i think it's part of the basic game setup, or it might've been part of the MK Channel setup, i don't quite remember), you can use them in first-person mode only.

(a) Unfortunately, we can't do anything; you'd be better served handing your thoughts about achievements to Nintendo proper in your region
(b) Nintendo already uses 'stars' as points for Club Nintendo in Europe, so I'd imagine they'd want to do something different for an Achievements system anyway
(c) we've been down this thread many, many times, and it invariably boils down to a big fat argument featuring those who want an Achievement system pitted against those who will fight the idea to the bitter end, and then those voices of reason who don't give a crap either way wind up trampled in the mess. Again, you're more than welcome to suggest your ideas straight to Nintendo, they've got contact information up on their site, and if you'd like to continue on with your own version, you've got that thread you made last night. Good luck to you!

Remember, the more people you're racing with, the more fun you'll have! It'll autostart on its own after a minute or two, so please have the courtesy to wait for others!

Also, anyone caught using either of the Wuhu glitches to get a cheap win in the Nintendo Life communities WILL be publicly named and shamed. No one wants to race with a cheater, so just enjoy the tracks for what they are — they're great when everyone plays fairly! :)
