Animal Crossing X Mario Kart 8 First Impressions

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 23, 2015, 1:40 PM

Today is the day when the new DLC for Mario Kart 8 comes out. Having most of the morning off, I decided to download it and try it out. So far, I think it's really good :D
First thing I did was scan some amiibos to get the new Mii suits. I am surprised and somewhat confused that the Rosalina, Toad, and Bowser amiibos were not compatible with the first update given that they are Mario characters. But I do like the new outfits. I'm especially looking forward to the PAC-MAN one with the animated Pac-Man on the back of the helmet.
The first new character I tried out was the girl Villager. I think she's incredibly adorable, with her pink ponytail and her red jacket. :aww: I went with the City Tripper scooter and went to the Crossing Cup.
The redesigned Baby Park is still as chaotic as before. I was able to avoid getting shelled to death, and I somehow avoided all the other racers despite constantly passing them. I wasn't too fond of the remake of Cheese Land since it no longer looks like it's set on the Moon, but I do like the design of the environment, with lots of cheese and cheese-related accessories. Wild Woods is one of Nintendo's most visually-amazing Mario Kart courses. The way the course is designed is so amazingly detailed, not just with textures, but with setting things. I'll let Gamexplain tell you more, though. And to top it off, the Animal Crossing course is really great. I haven't played any Animal Crossing games, so I can't speak for how authentic a representation of the town it is, but I like the details that I do recognize, such as the characters and the balloons holding Item Boxes. I do wish we'd see more K.K. Slider, since he's my favorite AC character.
After that, I tried out the Bell Cup as Dry Bowser on the Bone Rattler (note: this is a really bad combination since it cripples every stat but speed). I don't care too much about the remake of Neo Bowser City. I didn't like the course in Mario Kart 7, and there wasn't much expanded upon in the 8 version, save for an anti-gravity section shoehorned into the end. Fortunately, Ribbon Road more than makes up for Neo Bowser City. I love how it takes the simple concept and design of the original, just a road made of ribbon, and expands it to being part of a playset created by an obvious Nintendo fan (perhaps 9-Volt or Master Hand). I especially like how each section is themed, such as the anti-gravity section is based on Rosalina. Next is Super Bell Subway, which is the track I was the most excited for. I love the tracks that take place in locations where you wouldn't expect a race, but would have plenty of people to watch the race, such as Coconut Mall and Sunshine Airport. Like Wild Woods, I love the amount of detail put in. The terminal has shops that all have different things that they sell if you look close enough, there are ads all over the walls, and the subway tunnels themselves also have some very well-done graffiti. I also like how there are so many ways you can go in such a small area. And to top it all off, we have Big Blue, based on the F-Zero tracks of the same name. Like Mute City, I love the references to F-Zero, such as getting coins from recharge pads and the walls slowing you down, and well as the new ideas, such as having water flowing along the track. It's also got some of the best music from the pack, being a jazzy cover of Big Blue's music, mainly from F-Zero X.
All in all, I really enjoy this DLC and I highly recommend it.

you hate every shipping that includes Yoshi but not wario?
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
To be honest, I don't really see a lot of Wario shippings.
remusyoshi Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2015  Student Artist
yes but... what about those hot women shippings with wario in it?

How come you fav'd that stupid journal from..what..two years ago..
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Well, re-reading it, I thought it was actually kinda funny. I hope you don't mind.
Angelic-Blossoms Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015
Well I guess..I can't tell you what to fav and what not to fav..I guess..thank you??

Have you checked out the SSB4 character ballot?

Which character will you ask for?
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
I did. I voted for Prince Fluff.
NintendoLover105 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Student General Artist
Hmm, it's possible that he may become an alternative costume for Kirby, considering how he's very similar.
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
I feel like Prince Fluff could have his own moveset based on Kirby's Epic Yarn. The game featured enough moves for some to be considered for him to use. For example, his neutral-B could be the Yarn Whip and his Final Smash could be Tank form.

To your conversation five days ago...

That was really rude of him to say..I'm an atheist and even I believe that Christians can be also supportive of LGBT-Rights.

Jesus Christ taught his followers to be loving of all those around them..not hateful..don't lump all into a certain few who tend to spew their hatred.
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
That's exactly why I blocked him. He was rude and very narrow-minded.
CosmosAndChaos Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015
While it's true you can be Christian and still be gay, that's as much of an oxymoron as a Jewish nazi, or a black KKKlansmember. Christians are homophobes.

I believe only atheists(like me) can be TRULY LGBT-friendly. Christians are modern-day Nazis in my opinion.
RosalinasSoulmate Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Dude, I'm a Christian and I fully support gay rights.
CosmosAndChaos Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015
I don't believe you. That would be the same as saying "I'm a nazi and I fully respect Jewish people". Christianity is a homophobic religion.
