  • JoomX: Still just a sat connection, TJ.  Never going to be anything better in this area.  Over 1,000ms ping time, would totally suck trying to play online.  For EB, I'd try it though... ;)

  • JoomX: For now, TJ.  I keep thinking it's kind of useless now with EB gone, but keep hoping a new EB or something similar will come along.  If not, I'm sure sometime we'll have to call it a day...  :(

Ohhh, I assumed it was TopStar, what with those awesome lines and skills and all! :P :P :P :D :P :P :P :D :P :P :P

Maybe it WAS TopStar and he's only saying that because he doesn't want us to know how rusty he's gotten.  :o :P :P :o :o :P :P :o 8)

Just came across this.  It was posted August 2016, and he makes it sound like he just recorded it.  And I don't recognize any of those names.

More courses would be nice.

But right now I'm still trying to figure out why I can't match my old scores.  No problem with S's first time around on the new Wii, even on Mirror, but not like they used to be.

And I just gave a copy of EB to a guy last week that said he wanted to try it.  I need to practice before he's ready to play.  Problem is consistency, putting 2 (or 3) good laps together in a row...

10
Yeah.  It almost seems like Nintendo got new leadership at some point, and whoever it is they're not very good at making business decisions...

I'll do that, Top.  I had never put homebrew on the other one, I kept thinking they'd have to bring back EB with online servers at some point...  >:(

I've been looking on EBay for good deals, should have another one soon...

I don't know, I don't remember him saying anything about it.

I did send an email to their bizdev address  -  http://www.mgiracing.com/  -  but never got a reply.  Maybe if more people asked.

I just wish they'd marketed EB worldwide instead of just here, I think it would have been a great success...

It would be great.  My Wii still isn't working, guess I'll have to find a good used one on EBay, and I haven't bought any other console in forever.  But if EB came out on anything, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.  I don't know how satellite internet would work for racing, but I'd have to try it.

I think you should send Monster an email and tell them how much you'd like to have a new EB for your birthday...  ;D

It would be cool to see a new Excitebots.  But yeah, I miss the competition of both speed and scores.  I'm pretty sure there would be a few that would excel at both again.  But who?  8)

I miss all the parts.  Scoring, beelining against hackers to make the line, speed runs against each other here in the group, or just out playing around to see what we could do on a course.  It was all fun...

For that matter, just stick Excitebots in and play that again. :D :P :D :P :D

Sounds like that's about the best option.  :P

Nice writeup on the games, TJ, I didn't realize it had been released.  Could be another loser for Nintendo...  :(

Man, that is an old style game.  :o

Looks and sounds like it might be fun to play with, though, and the price is right.  And I do like their tagline:

A slick retro-futuristic obstacle-dodging game that will make your brain melt!

 :P :P :P

Nice review, Bio Rex, thanks.  I'll check it out...

Hard to tell, TJ.  Let us know how your call goes, then we can jump in...

29
Good investigative work there, Dyn.  Wish they'd just come out with a yea or nay on it.

Anyplace we can write to submit a request/wish list?

30
Dang it Joom, by the time the next Excite game comes out, I'll be using your moniker! :P ::) :'(

I know, TJ.  The way it's going we'd all be racing with a cane...  ;D

31
I missed that too.  But no online?

As Top said, I'd only pop the $300 for the Switch if EBTR came out for it and had online.  I don't really like the Switch controller, but it would have to do...

PC Games Discussion / Re: Well, I finally did it...
« on: January 15, 2017, 08:57:05 PM »
Nice, TJ.  I finally moved up to an i7 two years ago and decided to just do it all.  64gb ram, 1tb SSD main system drive, and two 2tb SSHD secondary drives.  Nvidia graphics.  4tb external backup drive.  I usually build my own, but after pricing out all the parts it was cheaper to buy pre-built.

It's been nice, but I have it packed. 493 installed programs right now.  My main work computer.

Also picked up a dedicated i7 game system, but only 32gb ram, 1tb SSD main drive, 1tb SSHD secondary drive, and a nice Nvidia card.  Not being used much right now, though.

Glad to hear you got something hot for yourself.  And speaking of Doom, I need to get that back out for another run through.  Been a while.  Let me know what you think when you've been all the way through it...

33
That being said, Monster Games should just let us design the new Excite game  :P

Yeah, that!  Or at least let us talk them into building the new EB, and getting it out so we can play.  8)

And I think I like the idea of track specific bots.  I do like the current ability to run whatever you want wherever you want, but wouldn't mind at all being tied to a certain set of bots for a given type of track.  Although I can see people pushing to race on the tracks that allow their favorite bot(s).  Still, good idea, Flash...

35
I like the points you make about the bots' scoring abilities, TJ, and agree.  But other than that, I pretty well like the game as is, and would just like to see it online again in some form (new system, whatever)...
