We achieved 8 player local multiplayer on MK8D with 4 Switches on launch day. So much fun!

Should've done this on a rooftop.

The biggest issue here is that I'd need 7 friends

Not sure if it is due to weak WiFi radios in the Switches or the level of interference in the apartment (~15 networks in range), but we kept getting disconnected with the consoles more than a few feet away. Once we put them all on the table like in the pic, it worked flawlessly for many rounds. Tabletop mode with two players per screen works surprisingly well.

The Magic of Mario Kart's Auto Drive/Steer

The Magic of Mario Kart's Auto Drive/Steer

I have 3 kids ages 7, 4 and 3. The 7 year old is capable of playing the game normally and the 3 year can't really play, but likes to hold the controller and push the buttons. However, my 4 year old had a stroke just after she was born and her right side is not coordinated enough to hold the controller in a way that really allows her to play with us. Well, thanks to Mario Kart's new Auto Drive feature, she can now steer with her left hand and let the game drive for her or vice versa. I'm sure this feature will be an annoyance to many, but for my daughter, who would otherwise not really be able to participate, it is the best feature ever added to a Mario Kart game. She is currently sitting in my living with my other 2 kids and my wife and all of them are playing Mario Kart and laughing their heads off. This is truly a day I won't forget thanks to Nintendo.

TL;DR: My daughter had a stroke just after she was born, but thanks to the Auto Drive/Steer features she is able to play with me and the rest of my family. Thanks Nintendo!

Gonna save this post so I can send it to people who hate auto-steering, thanks for the story!

I don't even get the hate for it. "It's not useful for me so it sucks and I hate it." No. You don't have to use it. You aren't who it was targeted towards.

It seems Nintendo is adding little Accessibility features here and there in their games that enable people with disabilities to enjoy video games as well. I hope they keep it up. The story of the visually disabled man and his wife being able to play 1-2 Switch (cause you don't have to look at the screen) was just as inspiring as your story and I think just a glimpse at what Nintendo has in store for accessibility options going forward. Exciting stuff.

The problem with the auto steering isn't that it exists. It's that it's on by default. Some people aren't aware of it and are confused why they're are steering so poorly. I played a race with it and now it's in my stats. I'm glad it's there though for other people that need it. It just shouldn't be default. Make a tutorial when you first play to explain the controls and determine if you need it.

Edit: I love how many people are focusing on one line. People get triggered so easily. Like you don't even have to try to upset people and they will find something.

Dominos Pizza's advertising is on point again!

Dominos Pizza's advertising is on point again!

It's weird whenever Dominos is mentioned on Reddit it's criticised as terrible pizza - in the UK it's considered an upper-end takeaway pizza chain. Does it taste totally different in the US, or do you just have higher standards?

Having lived in both the US and the U.K. I completely agree. The dominos in the U.K. Is completely different and of a much higher quality

Their ad's are better than their pizza

Now I wanna try U.K. dominos

I guess go big or go home

What about Breath of the Wild DLC ? I don't think Nintendo would announce Mario Kart DLC without giving us more info about the Breath of the Wild DLC that we know almost nothing about.

Wow, Reggie is free.

Yeah, the only one I can see with even a remote chance is the leftmost column.

Last week I showed off my Switch loving cockatiel Phoebe. Here she is getting a bit TOO comfortable watching Zelda!

Did she give you some good Rito insight on beating the Divine Beast Vah Medoh?

Those claws on the screen 😱

Nintendo commented! How cool!

All the weight is on her inside foot. She never rakes.

Feel free to remind me of this comment when my Switch ends up on /sub/instant_regret

I made a GIF to compare the world map of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Skyrim and some other maps. (Based on data by /u/HylianWarrior)

BotW's Hyrule Castle fills an area the size of OoT's Hyrule Field. Imagine seen that as a kid coming out of the Kokiri Forest.

My horse in Skyrim can climb any mountain.

I'm not sure I'd appreciate the size of BotW as much if I hadn't grown up in the 90s playing OoT.

But the map size only tells one side of the story, the perception of freedom is even bigger because of the "open air" or "climb anywhere" gameplay.

I got my gf a big set of professional colored pencils (her favorite medium to work with) for Christmas, and she made this for me to show her appreciation: "Champion of Centuries" - 5" x 7" - Colored Pencils

Wow.

Oh dang that looks good. Almost as good as the amazing curves of Coca-Cola™.

What a save!

How on earth do you get dense, dark, even, colors over wide areas like that using colored pencils...?

Are you secretly part of the Yiga clan?

Mother of god....THEY CAN BE IN MK9 AND SMASH NOW

Next stop: the pet department.

Sorry turtles, but your deaths will not be in vain.

As someone who works at a Target I'd roll my eyes and pretend I saw nothing if I passed by this.

I've been having a really tough few months, but I am truly a lucky person to have such an awesome sister. This really lifted me up this morning.

Sister of the year ;D

There year isn't over, and I have two other sisters, so the verdict is still out...

but she is seriously a great person and I'm an absurdly fortunate person to have her in my life!

Heck you, man! Heck off!

"Heckin yeah"

Not sure how I feel about that one
