Metroid Prime: Hunters is not as hard as Trauma Center

I also got this game for my birthday.

Anyone got it, and does anyone want to kick my ass at it online?

Only played it a little so far, online is a lot of fun. Single player is very similar to Previous Prime games (at least at the start)

Mario Kart is easy if you are a prick and do snaking.

Just Wiki'ed it.

"Snaking"

The execution of several consecutive mini-turbos during races has caused minor controversy in Wi-Fi play in the form of snaking -- players who drift their karts back and forth across a straight stretch to generate repeated mini-Turbos (a movement likened to actual snakes, hence the term, "snaking"). Because this gives the user a distinct speed advantage over other, "non-snaking" opponents, snaking is regarded as anything from a legitimate, advanced racing strategy, to an unfair tactic, or even outright cheating. Some players have attempted to form leagues (or "Friends" groups) composed of avowed non-snakers, but the distinction between a "snaker" and "non-snaker" is vague, largely depending on whether the player uses Mini-Turbos on straight areas of the track or on curves.

It is unclear whether snaking is an intentional feature of the Mario Kart series game design (since this could be performed in previous Mario Kart games, albeit to a more limited extent), or if it is simply a side effect of the game's Mini-Turbo mechanics. The dispute over snaking can be compared to the wavedashing phenomenon in Super Smash Bros. Melee, or the similar snaking technique in F-Zero GX. Most if not all of the quickest Time Trial records in Mario Kart DS were accomplished using the snaking technique.

I have Metroid Prime: Hunters and Mario Kart DS. I'm not able to go online with my DS using our internet connection (because of some crap security and firewalls), though, so I'll have to wait for my birthday to get that USB connector thingy, then I'll kick yer butts.

Btw, I've completed the single player mode in MP: H, it's not very long nor hard. (I didn't complete it 100% with all scans 'n' stuff, though)

Edit: That birthday I mentioned is in exactly 83 days.

I've been "snaking" since the old Mario Kart 64 days when boosting was just getting into the scene.

My friend Justin and I dominated in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.  We fucking brought them blue sparks.

I never really used the boosts. But it seems I'll have to start using them when i get the DS. Snaking sounds pretty lame, though.

Snaking is indeed lame.

Using it as a cheating tactic is rather underhanded, however, using the boosting as a tactic itself isn't.

Hmm....

Whatever.

I bring the fucking blue sparks.
