How to perform reverse programming? When Sony and Microsoft are preparing for the war between supercomputers and super high-speed solid-state drives, Nintendo’s weapon of choice for this Christmas is no more complicated than a remote control car, neatly folded cardboard, and a camera that may be torn directly from Nokia. Things out. When you were in college.it is peak Nintendo.
Mario Kart Live Home Circuit is indeed Nintendo’s brilliant work, built around pure joyous moments inspired lateral thinking. In Nintendo’s way, it is also technically limited, often frustrating, and expensive. According to many other experiences of Nintendo, this kind of magic makes suffering from these shortcomings almost worthwhile.
In the “Mario Kart” family circuit, from the point of view of a small but high-speed remote control car, that happy moment is your trip to the small country in the living room. It is very simple to set up.Just get the 1.1GB download from the eShop, start the software, and use the car’s camera to scan the QR code on the screen of the Switch, and you are ready to use (maybe you can also clean the living room, no matter what you do, don’t drag it to the sofa Next, because my mop can’t get there, I promise you disgusting).
Even after more than ten hours, the magic has not really disappeared, and the lead developer Velan Studios has built the foundation on it in some fascinating ways. You have four cardboard doors-which can be folded up easily so that you can put them back in case you overspend the house due to the oversized Labo device-you can place them to construct the circuit. Drive the kart to the first door, complete a new creation, and then you have: your own Mario Kart Live track.
From there, it is just like any other Mario Kart game you have played. You can unlock custom items by spending the coins you pick up along the way, and you can participate in a series of grand prix races in four different speed categories. Each new event covers the familiar filter-Jiphupu beach underwater, summer resonance, The hustle and bustle of Toad’s toll road, or, interestingly, the 1-1 themed environment of the world. Even if the track layout may remain fixed-before you get up and rearrange everything without any effort, that is-each new environment creates its own wrinkles. Items and auxiliary pads were repositioned, and there were even some clever tricks, such as virtual wind gently blowing the kart sideways across the floor, or magnets on the door pulling the kart into tension. This is a very clever thing.
Nevertheless, stepping on the remote control car on your floor can be very close to the experience of Mario Kart is still a very important thing, and there is more than a sense of inspiration. The main Mario Kart drift booster has been fully replicated due to some camera deception, and the red shell (of course the blue shell) works the same as in the game. Once hit, your kart will be released. Slow speed.Sense of speed amazing, When you see the kart on the screen, the low viewpoint makes you step into the kart in real life steadily, and it feels really otherworldly.
This game is a far cry from the running-in of the main line Mario Karts-indeed as you wish-but the hardware itself shows some high-level details. The kart itself is a uniform weight and beautifully shaped thing-the camera stretches over Mario’s head like the exaggerated air box of a F1 car in the 1970s. This is undoubtedly the only way in my heart. Just like a real kart, it has no suspension, rides through the chassis and some super sticky tires that will run on hardwood or carpet-in fact, the stickiness is so high that in an afternoon race, They picked up unclean dust and needed to be scrubbed carefully. It does not reflect the cleanliness of my own front room very well, but it also shows that over time, these things will require a little maintenance.
Even the cardboard doors are beautiful things, decorated with the latest works of Yoichi Kotabe’s passionate artwork, and everything you do between the two is up to you. Like Labo, when possible, you are really only limited by your imagination, even though you are also bound by certain limitations of Live Circuit-or in fact the limitations of your own living space. I live in a humble house, so I can’t create routes, although I’m not sure how much wild fun you can get when the range of the kart is limited-it’s advertised at 15 feet high, but based on my experience, It’s less of a malfunction five feet before that. The WiFi performance of the Switch has always been a weakness, so even if it is disappointing, it is not surprising.
It’s also disappointing to like Mario Kart Live Home Circuit, because Mario Kart has always been performing-with your friends, when launching red cannonballs and bombs, you need multiple karts, which means multiple Kit. Pop music is £100, which is really not recommended.
The core pleasure of Mario Kart Live Home Circuit is enough to cover up these problems, although it does come with a huge warning-about the size of the house, and your own creativity, if you want to participate in the competition Mario Kart with friends, so is the size of your wallet . Select a few of these boxes, this is a stepping stone, a bit squeaky, but always well-thought-out Gizmo, and reminds us that Nintendo is still the heart of toy manufacturers, and reminds that it can still make some toys. The most magical toy around.
