But if ya try sometimes, you just might find...
« on: July 09, 2014, 09:05:37 PM »
Well, from the time I got online with EB, I hardly ever did any offline racing.  But last week I got the bug, so I put everything back together and raced a couple.

Couple nights later, I raced a few more.  Now I'm finding myself sitting down for 2-3-4 races about every other night.

It's not online, and no actual competition except against myself, but it's better than it had been without any racing at all.  Kind of.  I don't race many at a time, but it fills the 'no racing blues' hole.  A little.

Anybody else finding themselves getting it out for a few runs for old time's sake?  I mean hey - you can't always get what you want, but if ya try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need...

Hey, Joom. I have to admit I haven't felt the itch much. Part of the reason for that  is that I am spending a lot of time with offline multiplayer on MK8. There are three of us (my sons and me) racing right now, so we can't go online (max. 2). I try to sneak online when I can..

Ironically, I was given a used Wii for Father's Day, but I haven't set it up yet. I do periodically think about trying Excite Truck again.

I thought about ET the other night too, D, but haven't put it in yet.

You can't beat local multiplayer with the boys, though.  I miss those days (we did a PC network).

I'm still checking out things online, though, just to see what might be fun for a few of us to jump into once in a while...

I've been into Excite Truck to fill the EB loss.  `S` graded all tracks, challenges and mirror.  Earned the super truck.  Liked to had that for EB online.

Did that a few years ago, Bots, but might go back and do it again.  Still a fun racing game...

Yeah, Excite Truck was great, went back to it not that long ago (well maybe longer than I think) and set some personal bests.  Post some scores in the thread over there even if they're not that great.  Might be fun to get a little competition going there.

It's funny that it's taken this long, but I'm starting to really miss EB online.  There's been a few nights in the last week where I've thought about getting online but then remembered: nope, can't do that anymore. :(

I'm keeping busy with SWTOR and even bought Starcraft II and played all the way through the single player (that's a pretty great game and has a good storyline).  May get the Heart of the Swarm expansion at some point if I can find it for a good price.

Life goes on, and we keep on playing...


Oh, and Joom, I see what you did there...
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

If, and or, when Nintendo releases a new Excite game, I will be back.
