I've retained her rounder cheeks there. Right, that one's over now...
MARIO KART X[/u] Played a lot of Mario Kart Wii lately, and now, here's my ideal Mario Kart game. What other way to kick this one off than to start by posting the modes and racers of it.
GAME MODES Of course, there's the usual Grand Prix, Time Trial, and all of that.
There's now a stamina function added to this game in races and battle mode alike. Your kart carries a stamina meter. Lose it all and retire. However, this is all entirely optional and can be switched on or off in the race options. When it does deplete, the character's kart comes to a halt and he/she'll simply disappear.
Battle Modes include: Balloon Battle, Coin Runners, Bob-Omb Blast, and Shine Tag
Also, there's now a Garage Mode, where you can customize your own karts! Heh heh heh, look forward to more of this next time...
Middleweights Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Birdo, Pauline, Tiny Kong, Jimmy T.
(*Know why Rosalina was one of these? She appeared taller than Peach and Daisy)
Of these, the new ones are Tiny Kong, Jimmy T., Mona, Pauline, Hammer Bro, and Shy Guy (teeeechnically...). All four baby characters removed.
Just a few of the new items Fire Flower - Fireballs will circle around your character. Press the item button to launch fireballs; as many as you can until the little timer on the item runs out. Mini-BGM from Galaxy included.
Ice Flower - Your character will be covered in ice (leaving icy trails behind), can throw snowballs with the item button (as many as possible within the short item's timer) that freeze opponents. Bumping into others in this state freezes them too. Mini-BGM from Galaxy included.
Feather - Celebrating its ~*glorious return*~ from the SNES game. Allows for high jumps.
Mini Mushroom - Normally, the Thunderbolt hinders you with getting tiny, but the Mini Mushroom allows you to go tiny on your own accord, due to there being tiny-only shortcuts and all that this time.
...I'll be completely honest now, I'm not sure of what else there could be in terms of items. All others are retained, but the Thunder Cloud is purged.
MUSHROOM CUP Luigi Circuit (naturally...) Bob-Omb Badlands DK Wilds Pianta Park
FLOWER CUP Mario Circuit (this too...) Mona Plaza Pineapple Beach Chill Peak
STAR CUP Waluigi's Lagoon Fruit Mountain Shy Guy Tower Honeycomb Valley (Bees from Galaxy everywhere)
SPECIAL CUP Sky Path Koopa Countryside Bowser's Castle (incidentally...) Rainbow Road (oh, of course)
SHELL CUP N64 Kalimari Desert DS Waluigi Pinball Wii Mushroom Gorge GCN Sherbet Land

Ironically, Mario Kart X is the original name of Mario Kart Wii.
But then, Super Smash Bros Brawl came in. The name "X" was taken by its Japanese version, so like Mario Kart R, X has to use a generic name.
May add comments later.
EDIT - I'll focus on the concept on this one, since I've seen so many of your tastes already and can't really comment anything new.
Not much complaints except 32 tracks?! Oh wait. That's 38. Too few. That's what I think about the actual games too. And I don't really need the retro courses since I'll play the old game if I want to anyway.
I've no idea on how to battle on a Wii Remote. It's too long for a battle course.
So you have Mona as the only Wario character, but you'll reach as far as Candy Kong for DK characters? The only Kong less important than Candy is Swanky! I think you're just letting your fetishes get the best of you.
Jimmy is pretty much the co-star of the WarioWare series. He's always the stage right after Wario's, the characters usually gather at Club Sugar, his spot, and he's the only character besides Wario who usually gets several other related stages (Jamie T., James T., Jimmy P., etc).
But I'm fairly certain that 9-Volt and Ashley are more popular than both of them.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
