Exactly two decades ago in this day and month I beat super mario kart by finishing first in the final cup and cc which was 150cc
special cup
Posted: Posted June 3rd by weid man

I was tied with Mario since we had 27 points each after the fourth race which was vanilla lake. I then placed first in rainbow road despite the thwonpa and glittery as fuck graphics which was hard to drive through especially with 2d controls which made it hard to steer and turn processor woth. After placing first receiving the gold medal I went to sizzlers for dinner to celebrate my champiobship.

I know I was late with things since the n64 came out two years prior and mario kart 64 the year after the n64’s launch, but my mom wouldn’t buy me the n64 attust time because it still cost $200 and she didn’t buy me it till my 10th birthday which was October 8, 1999 and my dad still needed to conserve money to help his furniture store flourish which was very meager then before he obtained all of the money that he has now, so my mom wouldn’t buy anything more than $200 at thet time. So I just stuck with snes games until I got my n64.

Why is the cc is that the size of the engine

Edited June 4th by Brandy

The cc represents the size of the engine, yes...well, in Mario Kart terminology, the relative size of the engine. The "cc" stands for "cubic centimeters," which refers to the total volume of all of the cylinders of the engine. Most real-life car engines are large enough to be measured in liters (so, my car, for instance, has about a 3.6L engine, I believe), but smaller engines such as those in go-karts, lawn equipment, etc. are measured in cubic centimeters, or cc (so, my lawn mower might have, say, a 200cc engine, but that isn't much; remember that the Mario Kart classes are only relative to each other, they're nowhere near realistic).

GC, please refrain from being needlessly critical and condescending. Weid has serious problems and his reminiscences about gaming are well-deserved.

Thank you SOH and nullfather.

GC I was 8 years old when I beat super mario kart. And in two days from now a decade ago I beat boss battles oh intende difficulty with yoshi in super smash bros brawl after tail whipping tabun RIGHT BEFORE he unleashed his second shockwave attack and four years before to the exact day almost I obtained the no damage clear bonus point in melee with yoshi adter I ground Pokémon undead on master hand who had 7% HP left after avoiding a near smash pound attack that master hand barely missed me by.

I have a vivid memory of playing MK64 with my brother. We were attempting to get the gold trophy on all cups. We had completed all but the final Special Cup. We had tried it many times but kept getting beat by Peach. We had made it to rainbow road in an attempt and my brother was closely matched in points with Peach so we had to beat her to win the cup. It was the last lap and we were nearing the finish line. My brother and Peach were neck and neck ahead of me. I got a line of bananas in the last item box. All I could do is throw them forward and hope for the best. I managed to get peach with a banana, causing her to spin out and allowing my brother to beat her to get the gold.

It's a strange memory to hold so close, but I remember it very well. We put a lot of time into accomplishing it and in so doing bonded together. I bonded with my siblings over video games more than any other activity.

After placing first receiving the gold medal I went to sizzlers for dinner to celebrate my champiobship.


This sounds so cool. And makes me reminisce of the 90s.

Congrats on your part vandy. I struggled with double dash in 2003 on 150cc because yoshi had the worst special and can even be of friendly fire (bomb) and give opponents mushrooms and state. So I had to switch over to using the babies and I easily won it with them because they have by far the best special, the chain chimp. If you fall behind with yoshi it’s near impossible to come back and place first on 150cx and mirror mode.

In all honesty I think that ratio and waluigo have the best special though because they can receive their’s while in first place and lay the f bombs behind them where everyone else will get him and screwed. It’s a way of avoid being taxed by the socialist reward system that mario kart has. And gc/ms super mario kart I think is by far the most challenging mario kart game in the franchise because there’s no blue shell for the racers to tax the leader who may be well ahead of everyone. It’s the most capitalist game that I know from the franchise and if you want to keep up then you have to work hard and collect coins along the course and not wait for welfare weapons of mass destruction to tax the leaders with. Mario kart Wii was a joke the items were so overpowered and skill was meaningless. The blue shell is definitely socialist.

Also what sizzlers

Posted June 14th by Brandy

Pizza restaurant

Posted June 14th by weid man

Where is it located

Posted June 14th by Brandy

I don’t think it exists now but i’m Not sure but maybe Wikipedia knows. I live in San Diego so i’m Not sure where it’s located elsewhere. I think sammy’s Wood fired pizza took over it.

I never even managed to unlock 150cc as a kid.

For those that don't know, Super Mario Kart's Special Cup is probably the most difficult set in the series. It's the bookend tracks that get you: Donut Plains 3 and Rainbow Road. These days I can consistently get gold on the other three races. Koopa Beach 2 is pretty easy (as these things go), Ghost Valley 3 is best accomplished by hitting the available speed boosts and making tight turns, and Vanilla Lake 2 is far more manageable once you get a handle on hugging the lake edge and jumping over cracks in the ice. The CPU simply can't keep up with that.

The other two tracks are really quite hard though, and I've never mastered them. Donut Plains 3 has a lot difficult turns on poor terrain. Getting these turns down is the key to success, and the CPU will not be making mistakes. Fall in the water once and you'll probably have to restart. Rainbow Road likewise has sharp turns with the addition of no guard rails and claustrophobic road space. There's a jump the player can try with a mushroom, but I've never managed to make it without flying off the stage. I assume it's possible though. The sparkling Thwomps that weid mentioned are the finishing touch. Encountering any of these hazards more than once will probably ruin your chances of placing, let alone getting gold for the set. Whatever spare lives remain by the time you get here will probably be spent restarting the stage attempting to get a perfect run. I've been playing since the mid '90s and it still makes me sweat. It is not easy to do, and I think it's important to establish that. Congrats on the 20th anniversary, weid man!

Thank you wry much farmov, hopefully gc/ms may realize this by far is the HARDEST mario kart game out there because there is no blue shell to help keep things balanced. There’s no taxing the leader,’earning this is all sink or swim. Also since this is the snes the graphics make it very hard on the eyes ESPECIALY rainbow road which is GLITTERY AS FUCK to see through. And the fact that this is two domeobsjonal thrbing ad well, not just graphics. It is near IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIFT. They removed the region’s for SNES rainbow toad in the bonus levels in mario kart super circuit and in mario kart 7 which this mega sized gamrboy sgstek had the three dineononalb circle pad to drift veg easily from. There is absolutely no drifting with the SNES controller. All it has is the fucking D pad. It hurts the bone in your thumb to make any sharp turns at. Mario kart 8 may have the hardest rainbow road but at least you can drift in it and if you’re a master driver this will be manageable. Mario kart 8 has very sharp turns especially in mario kart DS Saudi stadium and it is manageable if you know how to drift. Super mario kart and marionksrt circuit are very hard to control because they have no joystick and it was in the early phase with no shaking or anything and the CPUs were placed on mega hard difficulty especially super Kaitlin kart. I do have to admit that Mario left DS is a total joke to play against the computers, it was poorly programmed for playing against them, it takes absolutely zero skill to beat them in that game. But at least they brought back the challenge for mario kart Wii, 7, and 8.

And the fact that you have to collect coins allot the course in order to gain speed boost pro and if you are out of coins and bump into someone (or if someone bumps into you) ylu’ll Spin out and possibly fall off the course if your collision happens to be at the edge of the terrain.
