    :D :rotfl: Nintendo do make me laugh at times! Take the MK Battle mode (perhaps one of the most fun multiplayer experiences around) and then scrap the online multiplayer aspect of it. It would be great to just be able to sign on for a few quick battle mode games with some random people from around the world...but no!! Nintendo really do know how to shoot themselves in the foot.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall in one of their meetings...

    One Ninty employee - "So we have this fantastic multiplayer experience called Battle mode in Mario Kart. Who thinks that we should make this aspect of the game online?"

    Another Ninty employee - "Naaa, people will like that too much - restrict it so that they can only play with people locally."

    :rolleyes:

    Boring - battle mode rocks, after Bomberman it's one of the best multiplayer experiences going IMO. The racing mode is just another multiplayer racing game.

    The original Super Mario Kart battle mode was fun, but after that it just lost it's appeal.

    Too true..N64 and Cube modes are crap and who wants to play online anyway. Get some mates, get some beers..play and have a laugh in the same room.

    Just dont see any appeal whatsoever in playing against someone I dont give a s**t about from a country 3000 miles away. Wheres the fun in that? :confused:

    Nintendo is still a verey Japanese and very traditional comapny. They are run by old men that dont know how to get with the times.

    They seem to be affraid to try new things incase it fails.

    I think they preffer to let other companies take risks and if it works they will follow suit.

    Their attitude is why they went from number one to number 3 in a few years.

    no online battle mode isn't too much of a loss, although it would have been nice to have the choice

    they do inc online racing so you're all stuck with that
