I agree with what was already stated. It has become very slow around here but a real shame to just throw it all away. I like Jude's idea of give it one more year. I wouldn't have any problem with the domain host changing. I just don't want to lose touch with all of you. We have got to get into another game and soon because I miss the "old" TGC. :(



I'll stay tuned to see what happens......

Agent C and Toppy boy. Who is going to win your division this year?  ;)

And did anyone see the preseason game between the Broncos and Seahawks that the Broncos won?  :P :P :P


Hopefully the 49ers FLASH but I don't think we will have as a good of a team as last year due to losing players, injuries, etc.

Yes and the Broncos crushed the 49ers today but it means nothing, just preseason. :)

Introduce Yourself / Re: JamesStock (aka JamesSk)
« on: August 17, 2014, 07:35:35 PM »
Welcome to the site JamesSk. Yes, I heard a lot about you over the years. I didn't get EB until July of 2011 but I played it until the shutdown.

It looks like you caused a few riffs in here but I view it as a good thing because this place has been a ghost town. :-X

I'm still open to any new games that the community wants to get into on any console. I don't think MK8 is worth buying a Wii U. I want to have more voice chat sessions with everyone and catch up and discuss things.

I really haven't been playing much video games lately, but I do miss EB. I'm still around guys, I hope you all are doing well.

Which Metroid games have you been playing?  The older ones (Metroid on the NES and Super Metroid on the SNES, both available via the Virtual Console on the Wii), or the new ones (The Metroid Prime series).  Did you spring for the Metroid Trilogy tin?  Those are a bit pricey these days, although they are very nice and well worth it (especially if you are a collector like me).  I got super lucky with mine when I found it at a decent price in a used book store, of all places.

Please don't tell me you've been playing Other M... I'd be very disappointed in you if you were. :'(


I've been playing Super Metroid on the VC. Super neat game that I didn't play back in the day. In fact, I never really played any Metroid games until now. I want to master Super Metroid: 100% item collection, fast boss kills, beat the game in under 3 hours, find hidden rooms, do tricks like wall jumping and spineshanking. It's a vast game with a lot of replay time. :)


I bought the original Metroid for the NES also but haven't played it yet. It looks even more difficult than Super Metroid.


The only Prime game I have is the 1st one for the Gamecube. It gets great reviews! The whole Prime series does. I would like the trilogy version you spoke of but for $50 used, that seems a bit expensive. I also don't like that you have to use the nunchuk and Wii remote for the Wii versions. I have a wireless Gamecube controller that works for the Wii. I still have my Gamecube but my Wii will play Gamecube games.

Another option I have is buy Metroid Prime 3 Corruption (only released on the Wii) for $8 used at GameStop and then buy Prime 2 Echoes (GameCube version) at Ebay or somewhere else. That would be the same as having the trilogy, maybe it will price drop soon. I would like to master the Prime series also even if I'm not good with FPS games. I'm sure there is a lot of exploration in those games too and not just shoot enemies up.

I have Other M but I have never even put the disc in my Wii. I purchased it for like $5 on a Black Friday. I saw the reviews were mixed. Something about it being cinematic? What is your take on it Jude? I can see already by what you said that you're not a fan! ::) :P

At this point I only have one Wii left that really works, AC, but I'm thinking about it.  Just don't know how (or if) it would affect NetFlix and Hulu Plus.

Been busy this week, but I'm going to look at it over the weekend...


I hear you on being busy. Yes, we can't have it messing up your shows! ;D Even though tv and movies are a bit overrated in my opinion these days. ::)

The SSBB, Zelda, and Mario Maker were my favorites out of that list. I'm sure SSBB would be the only one of those 3 with online play. I'm still doing research when I get a chance. How is Mario Kart 8? DynamO, Top, and Jude: have you 3 raced together yet?


I hope they have an upcoming Metroid game for the Wii U. The Metroid series is what I've been mostly playing since the shutdown.

I'm not that tech savvy but this doesn't look too hard at all. I'm sure if I had a problem Top, Flash, or others can help me out.

I will also be on the lookout for a cheap 2GB SD card.

 :o I can't believe you guys figured it out! Nice job!

I'm still not willing to mod my Wii but I will be on the lookout for a cheap used one. Especially if more people do it and we all have racing sessions where we meet up on the tracks. Joom, are you going to mod one of your Wiis?

I know a lot of people here already have "hacked" Wiis. I don't like the fact that you have to start over but I wouldn't go for any records anyways. It would be a fun way to still race this game that we all love from time to time. I really miss the poker tracks. I miss excite mode also but I really got into poker at the end. I still think the Wii U is the future. EBTR was released 3 years after the Wii was launched. Next year, 2015 will also be 3 years since the Wii U came out, maybe the next "Excite" game will come out then. We can all hope! :)

Wii U / Re: Wii U Friend List
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:47:35 PM »
I'm still doing research on the Wii U. DynamO, I love the bowling and tennis and I watched a video about online match up on the Wii U. That could be fun. :)


I forgot Propane had a Wii U. Now even TopStar went out and bought one and MK8! :o That makes 5 people with a Wii U. Even though BTC said he doesn't really play it and Propane hasn't been on the site in almost a year and a half. ??? I think I have his cell phone number in a pm though.

I look forward to what you guys think of it in the future. If I find anything special, of course I will let you guys know.

Good chat tonight, Dyn, tJ, and AC.  Even though we lost you toward the end, AC.  Look forward to the next one...

Yes, sorry about that. I had a late night phone call and didn't make it back in time. I had a good time talking. I look forward to the next chat/brainstorm session.

13
Now this is what happens when you think there's 30 days in May. *facepalm* Well...I've got the time tonight so I'll start working on it but can't guarantee it'll be 100% before I head to bed.

As for the Poker Rankings, I have little to no scores tracked myself. I'll dig up what I can but other than that it's up to your personal ranking threads to help me update that or sharing what info you guys have here.


TopStar, I updated my high scores in poker as well as KIMMEE!. I didn't have any other high scores to update.

Under the circumstances (described elsewhere), chatting about next steps would probably be premature and unproductive. However, I'm still happy to have a chat session so participants can commemorate the death of "official" online play.

For those who would like to participate but are unfamiliar with C3, the download site is at http://www.downloadc3.com/. I believe there are several ExciteBots channels, but others can correct me and or provide more information.

When? When else, Friday night around 11:00 EST, May 30 (I think May 23 is too soon, and falls on a long weekend).



I will try my best to be there DynamO! :) I don't think it will hurt to brainstorm a little and get the ball rolling.

General Discussion / Re: EB Memorial and Next Steps
« on: May 22, 2014, 08:50:52 PM »
There are plenty of communities based around a single game more so a series/franchise. To not call this one is blasphemy in my opinion.

I don't have plans on getting a Wii U anytime soon. I am interested in the post-Nintendo server project in the works though. The only disadvantages I see regarding that would be the lack of new players (who would mod their Wii to play online for a game they have never played?) and a lack of players in general. We are the online and unless most of us plan on jumping aboard the new server, it wouldn't be all that fun...







I agree with what you said TopStar. However, if this place was called www.ebtr.com, I could see that. It's the game community though. I know it's mostly always been about excitebots but also a little GoldenEye, SSBB, and Mario Kart. I don't plan on getting a Wii U soon either but before the year is over maybe.


The new server thing is interesting but these are my reasons why I don't think it will work out.

1. Like you said no one other than from this site would probably play and I don't think everybody from here will.
2. That would mean a room for example of BIG, Top, Cody, Flash, Joom and BTC. Who would feel comfortable betting in that room? A ZLP would be out of the question and even a 9's profile would likely get a lot of losses.
3. No rookies for buffers in the room.
4. How many people truly would be willing to modify their Wii? I'm with theJude, it would have to be a cheap used Wii for me to do it.
5. On this new server, would there be glitches that would make you lose a bet?
6. I don't think anyone put their friend codes in and that would mean everybody would start from scratch. We all worked hard for our wins and bets won.



I'm still willing to possibly do it if a lot of people participate, even if it's just a few tourneys or Fwals here and there. You know I love this game. I respect your opinion and everyone else. I believe that in the end, if we don't switch to another game, the community will die. :( I would hate for that to happen.

« on: May 21, 2014, 03:06:09 PM »
Here are pictures of my final account and a few pictures of my one loss profile just for kicks. I was happy to get an even 3,500 excite wins and finish in 15th place. I was shocked to get 410 poker wins and finish in 8th place. I'm almost as proud of the poker wins as the excite wins. I was only the 8th person to achieve 400 poker wins or more. 8)


It was a great almost 3 years and it will be missed. I truly enjoyed all the fantastic times I had with this game and all of you. I look forward to the next chapter of this community. ;)

I honestly wish I got into more Poker in the recent weeks. I've been so out of touch that I had no idea who KIMMEE! even was. Nice to see we had another poker regular...anyone try to invite her over here like we did PROMIKE/PkrKING/MESSI?

Oh and I don't want to brag but...I have the best Poker ZLP of all time and not a single one of you will ever EVER beat it! 8)

[spoiler]A whopping 195,000 bets won :P[/spoiler]


No, I don't think anyone tried to invite her. She ended up with 168 poker wins which was 16th place. Not bad at all for a real late poker racer. Below is a picture I took when she got poker win #100. They later switched to the Ace of Spades icon. One of the last races on Monday, she got a Full House with 3 gold cards=x8. That is what bots had with the Royal Flush X8! :o She could farm up those gold cards.


As for that poker ZLP, I saw that thing get 4th place in a 5 player room so many times and still get a x2 or a x1! You were lucky! :P ;D

23
Well, AC, it is high time you got off your bot butt and did the AB/AC Challenge.  I mean, it has your initials in it!! :o :D :P


 :P I farm too slow and you have to take 1st place. Those bots move fast in Super Excite! :o


Plus that's 500 offline excite races!

[spoiler]Ain't nobody got time fo dat! :))[/spoiler]

I'm beginning to think it was Brent (Snoooog). No one saw him on the tracks the last year or so. Raph could beat people like Cody and Top just like Snoooog. He also scored fast like him. They also raced in the morning and during the day like Snoooog. I don't know why he would want a 2nd ZLP though. Just my thoughts.

That sounds like a great idea DynamO, just let me know a date and time. The community can't die just because a game died. If that's true, we were not a "community" to begin with. :-X  :-\

26
I'm thinking about maybe buying a cheap used Wii in order to mod it... but we'll see.

I didn't think of that, good idea Jude. :)

27
I don't know much about hacking the Wii, but I have almost $300 worth of virtual console games on my Wii. Would it affect them? I also don't like the thought of having to start over. A 9's account is a LOT of hard work. :-X

I haven't raced a lot offline other than to unlock icons, bots, special designs, etc. I'm not very interested in racing Excite or Mini Games offline but Poker I thought could be cool, farm up some gold cards you know. I realized today that you can't race poker offline in versus mode but you can in both mini games and excite. ???

Good final excite races to Flash, Topstar, Cody, DynamO, Freddy, XcitPup, Joom, Awkward, and anybody else I forgot. Joom, we didn't actually race because there were several rooms going on but it was still nice to race and chat with you and Flash one last time while racing. I guess we can say, we were the last. 8)


Everything has to come to an end and that was the end. :(

Top, you asked about KIMMEE in the shout box last night. They have been racing for months now. Bots and others have raced poker a lot with her. She is good and another sad example for why it's a shame that it's ending. :'(


Last night she scored the 5th highest poker score ever. I didn't get a picture but my word is good enough.


Poker Kili, just us two. 788 score from 2nd place. Straight flush with 2 gold cards = 400. Royal flush with 1 gold card = 300. Full house and a regular flush plus 25 second place bonus = 788! :o 8)

I think she deserves credit for the 5th highest poker score ever. Ratrod, you only beat her by 6 points! ;) :o If she would have taken first, over 800! :o
