Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Bigger. Better. Rubber. Banding.

If you time a (jump) button press off a ramp or bump properly, your rider will do a quick trick.

 

I take my screenshots watching the highlight reel, which you can slow down with the right stick. Then, at the right moment, I hammer the screenshot button like I'm a paparazzi watching Jordan in a bar brawl.

Holding a direction when jumping also changes the trick you do.

What's the star symbol with the 0/6 score for in the top left of the screen?

That's for Favourited replays, which won't get deleted from Recent in the MKTV section. Why we can Favourite replays that we can't yet share is anybody's guess, but is such a totally NIntendo thing to do that we shouldn't be at all surprised at this point. Presumably there's an update coming when the Switch itself updates to include the sharing feature.

It really is isn't it? 

Its a game with everything; the kids love it and can play without help (due to the driving aids), my wife is in to and even asked to borrow the switch for her flight today (Sorry, but no) and for me I can pick up for a quick play or spend hours on it because it's got so much depth.

There are tournaments set up (150/200cc and battles), links to the codes are in the first post. They're all a bit broken at the moment though. The ones I set up have Smart steering enabled (so no pink boosts allowed), and Majora's one only runs for 4 races although you can still race after you've completed them and got your points. I'll fix them next week, as you can't edit tournaments while they're running. 

 

Re: joining friends - I too had the full lobby issue when I was stalking DC earlier today. After a couple of attempts I managed to get in though. I'm pretty sure MK8 had a more elegant solution, couldn't you spectate until a space became available?

Yeah, have been able to spectate in a regional race but not yet had that option when trying to join a friend. Don't think I have successfully joined anyone yet.

Been loving this today. I had it on WiiU where I'd completed the cups but not much more and never got the DLC. It's perfect for the switch. I just keep picking it up off the table for one more championship. Looks glorious and the on-line has been rock solid for the few races I've had so far.

I prefer the private rooms to the tournaments because you can set a cup of, say, 6 races to have a nice little league going and then start over again when it ends. The tournament functionality is essentially just an endless series of one-offs. Unfortunately without any invitation system in place it's really hard to get a private room going. You either have to hope someone sees you online and chooses to join you or post on here to get people to find you online and join you. 

 

Come on Nintendo, friend invites should be a basic thing in 2017.

GOTY contender? :mellow:  Is it fair? Only @Wiper can answer.

Technically it'll be eligible. Not sure it'll be more or less worthy than vanilla (more: proper battle mode, portability; less: single player structural issues even more pronounced) and I'd be distressed once again if it takes up the number 1 slot, but it would be eligible, yes.
