  • 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...  :(

The Wi-Fi Grand Finale Weekend
« on: May 12, 2014, 01:13:46 AM »
The Wi-Fi Grand Finale Weekend


So here we are, at the end of the line.  Next weekend is the last weekend we'll be able to race before the shutdown.  So let's make it a weekend to remember!

I plan on playing as much Excitebots, Goldeneye, Mario Kart, and maybe even Super Smash Bros. as I can.  I will be in C3 while I'm playing, and I'd like to invite anybody and everybody to join me.

Dates: May 16-18, 2014
Times: All Day Long, and into the Night as well! :D
Games: Anything with Wi-Fi connectivity that I own, most notably Excitebots, Mario Kart, Goldeneye, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Come one, come all, to join together for one final celebration of the Wii's online connectivity and all the awesome games that used it!


Please note: I took off time for this!  While all my fellow suckers coworkers will be working Friday through Sunday (this has already been confirmed), I'll be here racing and playing.  I took this weekend off months ago when I first found out about the shutdown.  I'm glad I did! 8)
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

I'm going to take this moment to apologize for and regret not playing with you guys more. I'll try to get my Wii back into my room after a long winter break in my sister's room. I will be at my full potential and I expect you guys to as well.  :'( Should we also start looking for new games we can enjoy together?
Nice Crash! *

Just shouted before I saw this.  I'm with ya, tJ.  Short of an asteroid strike, I'm going to make sure I can be there.  In C3, and on the tracks... ;)

Wow, I was going to plan something for Friday but you made it the whole weekend! :o :P ;D


Friday will be the last day/night I can race and voice chat. I hope a lot of people come out and race and chat with ol' Agent C, one last time!

Big, Joom, DynamO, Flash, BTC, Cube, TopStar, theJude of course, bots101, Copper, No Good, Cody, Darkdog, MESSI, PROMIKE, SpinDoc, and anyone else: I hope to see as many of you as I can! :D


This is the end! :-\

Jude, I have the other 3 games you mentioned but not played them much. I'll be willing to try online with those games. I'll even race with that Hummingbird of yours a few times! :D I even challenge you with a battle of the Space Mantis on Crystal Nebula! ;)

Let's do this! 8)

Stopped by the grocery store on the way home tonight to pick up a few things for the weekend.  I should be set now for sure!  Donuts, cookies, and, my favorite, Twizzlers bites, plus plenty of tasty beverages to keep my throat wet for chatting (that didn't sound dirty at all ;D).

I hope yall are ready to roll, because I know I am! 8)

Jude, that is serious sugar. I prefer the savory snacks for EB racing.

I will try to be on WFC and C3 a little bit later tonight and more later tomorrow. Might as well go out with a bang.

I will likely be on Saturday night, all Sunday, Monday night, and Tuesday night.
I made the stupid decision to opt to work over the weekend so I don't push off any work  for next week (last week of school.) :'(
P.S. My brother just stocked up on mountain dew of all kinds.
P.P.S. I'm moving the Wii back into my room tonight.

Looks like you're ready, tJ.  :P   I have plenty of coffee and a variety of snacks.  Of course the coffee means periodic short breaks.  ;D

Came home early today because we have a funeral this afternoon.  I'm going to jump on now for an hour or so, because after the funeral I'll have to go back out to work till 9-10 tonight.  Then I'll be back in...

Looking forward to it, AC.  I had fun last night too.  We're going to have supper in a few minutes and watch the latest Star Trek, then I'll be in looking and checking C3.  Should be in by around 9 EST...

Hey, I just happened to think - after the 20th we could still jump into C3 and chat while we pretend we're racing.  8)

Of course I wouldn't crash as much, and my scores would be a lot higher...  ;D
