Every racer gets 2 attempts on the time trial
Each will go up against the Nintendo Staff Ghost until that staff ghost is beaten.
Once the ghost is beaten each racer will go up against my own fastest record.
To keep things fair every lap will be with the Nintendo ghost vehicle setup.
All tracks will be on the 150cc setting with all aids (auto accelerate driving aid) turned off.
Motion control will also be disabled.
The order of tracks has been randomly generated via this Random ORG Website
(We just find it a useful site they aren't connected to us in anyway)
The order of the racers is also randomly generated by Random ORG before each time trial.
Each track will conclude with a hall of fame which will include the best race time of all 84 characters
and fastest laps as well as stats on how many were able to beat the staff ghost and current point standings (Winner gets 84 points slowest gets 1 point)
Well also dedicate a section for visitors to show off their own times (using the same vehicle setup) so please feel free to record it and get in touch to show the world just how bad we really are!
This is the random order generated for doing the tracks
The plan is to record each track in 4 parts (21 racers having 2 attempts each) throughout the week (or previous weekend and these will be uploaded to Youtube and posted here with extra stats on a weekly basis (Fridays) from February 1st 2019 with a scheduled completion date of December 27th 2019.
These predictions are genuinely being made (and will remain unedited) before I've attempted a single timed time trial lap.
Bowser JR is my go to character (In any game he's in) so I'm hoping he wins on at least one of the tracks.
Mii in reality gets 21 attempts so should really be the favourite as the suits make no difference to performance.
Yoshi and shy guy also get multiple attempts and as they aren't in the heavy category should also suit me more. (My Mii is definitely heavy!)
Different vehicle setups will affect different racers and help or hinder my abilities and please keep in mind as I almost exclusively use the same set up when playing the regular game I have never used a single time trial set up before ever. (Yes I've already checked them all)
But then of course there are 84 racers each having 2 attempts by the time the last one takes to the track I'll have already had 166 attempts on the track and should have perfected my driving lines and learned from many errors before them.
So perhaps the luck of the draw will play the biggest role?
I'm genuinely intrigued to find out and yes I'm aware there are a no real predictions here at all!
So overall my predictions
Most wins - One of the Yoshi's (What you want a colour ok Pink)
Most fastest laps - One of the Mii's (What you want a suit ok Pac Man)
Track I beat the staff ghost on the most times - Moo Moo Meadows
Track I beast the staff ghost on the least - Ribbon Road
Worst Performing driver - Gold Mario (Because I hated unlocking him)
About Legacy Features
We plan to publish a number of interviews a year covering as much of the gaming spectrum as possible.
From custom toys to life Like Amiibo to all other aspects of hand made game related items that catch our attention or eye.
We'll also be featuring any levels created with editors across various games here too.
We've got a few plans for various challenges once the site is up and running smoothly.
As the months and years go by and as time allows they'll also be a number of one off features focused on various individuals, companies and games or anything else that randomly pops into my head.
