    Is it tilt controls for you guys? Over here it's "I'm using motion controls!"
    And yes, it does mean "I'm not using motion controls"

    The blue shell has always smelled like so much bullshit to me from the very first game it appeared in. It's an item that allows the person who is playing the worst to fuck with the person who is playing the best. It doesn't even have a direct positive impact on the person who uses it, really! It's just a "fuck you, I suck at this game and if I can't be in 1st place nobody can".

    I stopped playing after Mario Kart DS because I saw those videos of Mario Kart Wii. You know the ones, where a guy gets hit by about 18 things in quick succession, plummeting from 1st to last place instantly.

    And don't even get me started on the rubber banding.

    Mario Kart is not meant to be a racing title.

    It is meant to be a settler of scores.

    I have a new soccer blog The Minnow Tank. Reading it psychically kicks Sepp Blatter in the bean bag.

    I won't say it's gone but since it happens less I think you feel that Blue Shell burn even more.

    Half the appeal of Penny Arcade is that there are jokes in both the art and writing

    Wait, did I say half? Because I meant basically all of it

    Weird thing is, in this game 1st place is the safest place to be, once you're away from the pack and have some bananas or shells to protect you. If you're far ahead enough, Blue shells won't hinder you that much unless it's followed by red shells or Lightning.

    You never get the blue shell when you're in 2nd or 3rd place where it might actually help you, you only get it when you're, like, 10th and have no chance to win. That's why I love it so much, it's entirely for the scootyfroody.

  • BlarghyBlarghy Registered User regular
    The blue shell was nice back in Mario Kart 64, when it actually stayed on the ground and could nail multiple people on its way to the guy in first. That made it more than just a FU to some random schlep in first, and actually useful to you back when in you're in last.

  • klemmingklemming Registered User regular
    It stays on the ground for most of the shot, it only goes airborne when it's coming up on the racer in 1st.
    And the blast can take out a whole bunch if there's an actual contest for the lead, so it's not just an FU to 1st place.
    It is an FU, but it's not only an FU.

    The blue shell has gone back to its roots of barreling through everyone it can on its way to the leader.

    It screws over almost as many people as the Lightning, now.

    Sorry to be that guy, but I believe the correct pronunciation is scootenfroody.

    You can make some great conversations in Hearthstone with character emotes.
    "The Light shall bring victory!"
    "...Victory or death..."


    "Your soul shall be mine!"
    (shrug) "You asked for it..."


    Two Valeeras are funny because one calmly introduces themselves: "Watch your back..." And the other screams like an unhinged psychopath: "I WILL BE YOUR DEATH!"

    I tend to open rogue matches with a standard greeting: "I WILL BE YOUR DEATH! ...Sorry. That was a mistake. The pleasure is mine."

    I should start doing that in Hearthstone. There is nothing worse than when someone beats your ass mercilessly into the ground in a videogame, then says Good Game.
    "Good Game" in many situation is simply adding insult to injury. It wasn't a "good game"! You're just being a dick, and if I speak up against it, I'll look like the bad guy because after all "you were just being a good sport" there!

    If you don't say, "Good game" when every single game ends, you needed to play tee-ball more as a kid.

    Or something.

    Like saying hello or shaking hands? Society is full of little expected rituals. Avoid them and appear anti-social. It's just that online you can usually get away with not heeding the rituals with little to no repercussions. It would seem that a good use of technology would be to automate those for you.

    Part of doing it, even with limited sincerity, is acknowledging that you're respecting the concept of sportsmanship, even if you want to go the other way. If you're saying "Good Game," then you've acknowledged to yourself that you have to forego a, "And fuck your mother for that last point."

    What is this I don't even.

    It depends on how the game went. If it was a close, down-to-the-wire sort of deal, then the winner being the first to offer "Good Game" is fine and dandy, since it is an accurate description of the game. If, on the other hand, the game was an utter beat down where the loser got utterly destroyed, the winner offering "Good Game" is not being particularly sporting, since it is either given out of pity or mirth. Either way, its generally on the loser to offer "Good Game" first, since it can be safely assumed that the winner already regards it as a good game.
