The coins are from Club Nintendo, and they expire two full Club Nintendo years after they've been earned. You redeem your coins in order, though — first earned, first used.

That said, people are already discussing the new rewards in this thread here. Feel free to join them :3

@Tryken: snaking as we knew it in MKDS isn't possible. the little boosts you get from drifting aren't dependant on hitting left and right on the D-pad, now they're in terms of how fast you're going and how sharp your angle of drift is. I'm told it's more like how the drifting system works in MKWii, though I haven't really had the chance to sit down and play that one, so idk for sure :3

@tendoboy: that's the real difference between Hulu and Netflix. Hulu carries much more in the nature of current TV shows and will often have the latest episodes up within a week of them having aired (if not sooner), though as someone's already mentioned watching on a mobile device can be hit or miss as some shows are web only (they're clearly marked, though, so you can tell instantly while searching whether you'll be able to watch it on a device or not). Netflix carries much more in the nature of solid movie choices and what's out on DVD, which is why it has a great catalog of past shows but may be missing more recent episodes of currently-running series.

@Apollo: Considering the only reason my 3DS isn't an Ambassador 3DS is because the one I shelled out for at launch was stolen, I find the assumption that because i don't have access to these games i'm 'fine' somewhat insulting — i paid my money, i should be able to have these games. That said, if you'd like to discuss the end of the Ambassador program further, please feel free to use this existing thread. Thank you!

The best way is to learn where they are and keep picking them up as you race. If you work on unlocking Mirror Mode and three-starring all the tracks, you'll pick up coins easily — and remember that you can pick up coins by playing online as well.

plus the fact that they made sure to alter the drift mechanics to prevent this in subsequent titles.

actually, i figured they did it that way because snaking is hell on your thumb, lol. i remember extended sessions where i wouldn't be able to feel the tip of my thumb properly anymore... owie :(

warioswoods wrote:

Anyhow, I didn't say the two were entirely equivalent; I just noted that the majority of anti-Wuhu-glitch arguments also apply to snaking. Not all, but most.

true, it did start that way, but then you continued it. :3
btw, 'quickly' isn't really an adjective i'd use to describe any of your walls of text :3

Either way, my main beef with the Maka Wuhu glitch and your comparison to snaking (even though you were being facetious about it) is that you're still having to navigate the full track along with everyone else whether you choose to snake or not. it's also very possible to still screw someone who chooses to snake with shells/lightning/etc. (and god forbid you screw up snaking on your own!), whereas the Maka Wuhu glitch puts a player too far out of range too quickly for any of the items (or player screwups) to matter.

to me, i don't really care what you do so long as you have to navigate the same length of track as everyone else. skipping ahead as the result of an accidental glitch is not comparable to being good enough to fly through a track via the aid of near-constant boosts. Snaking properly is something that takes practice and dedication, memorizing the right angles to work from and the layouts of courses in order to use this skill to your advantage. Falling off the track and letting a Lakitu carry you to the top of the mountain is not competitive at all.
