  3. Mario Kart 8 Thursday Night Throwdown! @ 10pm ET!

    Methinks you missed the whole club thing, it pretty much took the convo out of the main forum and put it in the Club forum for MK8 racing discussion.
  4. MK8 / MK8 DLX Game Night discussion thread

    So you are telling me that the tourney doesn't auto correct for the time change? It rolled it back an hour? I got no idea about going for Wednesday or Thursday for DLX or U.... makes no difference to me but I haven't seen anyone on DLX Wednesdays and the last two Thursdays I got on I saw no one. Last night I was at Star Wars.

  6. MK8 / MK8 DLX Game Night discussion thread

    Where is the 9pm thing coming from? I mean, the tournaments have been set to 10pm EST which would still be 10pm EST. I was at a movie and didn't race tonight.... are we down to one night of racing on Switch or U? I haven't seen anyone on Switch Night the last few weeks. It appears people did show up tonight to race though.

Huge for a lot of local pro teams that are on your local FSN channel and it could also mean a lot for collegiate sports.

  10. Kanex Pro Composite/S-Video 720p upscaler Review/Rant

    I run my N64 S Video out into my Denon Receiver and then that send the video out via Component to my 32" Samsung LCD tv from around 2005. I don't believe the Denon changes the Component video to p from i if the native signal is i. That said, yeah, the N64 games do look a little fuzzy on stuff that has defined edges. In other words, my Dr Mario for N64 looks fuzzier than say MK64 does. I had been using S Video on my N64 to any tv I have had since those kinds of cables hit the market because the upgrade of S Video over composite was totally worth the money in terms of clarity of image (whether it was SNES, N64, or GC). Just my $.02, most of these upscalers and the like have so many variables to what you get on the tv from the system itself, to the scaler itself, to the tv itself and how it likes certain inputs that I almost don't really bother with them because of it.
  11. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/12/rocket_league_collectors_edition_for_switch_is_just_weeks_away_from_retail_release I already got the digital version. For $40 though, with the included DLC, doesn't sound bad but this Switch Cart tax seems a little annoying to me. *********** I have really enjoyed my play time with the game, I just need to "figure it out" more so I can score more goals!
  12. Vs. Super Mario Bros might be 12/22
