Wi-Fi Nights are back in a big way. To celebrate the upcoming release of the next big Wi-Fi game, we at Vooks will be having our first Wi-Fi night in quite a while. But it's been such a long time that we're not stopping at a Wi-Fi night. No, we're going to have a weekend of Mario Kart goodness.

We'll be sending off Mario Kart Wii as our Wi-Fi karting game of choice on the Thursday night as we prepare for Mario Kart 7 which will be released here in Australia on the Saturday. So naturally, Saturday night will be the chance to get some Wi-Fi karting going for the first time with a bunch of Vookians as we work out how this new Mario Kart works with online play.

Details
When:
8:30PM AEDST (5:30PM AWST, 7:00PM ACST and 7:30 AEST) Thursday 1st December
9:00PM AEDST (6:00PM AWST, 7:30PM ACST and 8:00 AEST) Saturday 3rd December
Where: The Vooks.Net Chatroom (link in the top right hand corner of the page if you don't use a IRC client, make sure you have Java if this is the case)
IRC Details: Server: irc.ausirc.net
Room: #vookswifi

Link to Vooks Mario Kart Communities:
http://www.vooks.net...-7-communities/

Get excited!

Any queries can be posted here, anything that I might've missed out on can also be posted here.

Whilst I will be unable to participate in any Mario Kart 7 races on the Saturday, I will none the less be there on both nights to join in on the fun. Thursday will be particularly interesting as a send-off to one of the most successful Mario Kart games to date; it's been somewhat love-hate, but so many memories all the same.

I look forward to seeing many of you there, as well as any future Community events with Mario Kart 7. :)

The 1st is my birthday. It all depends, my girlfriend is spending the 30th-4th with me and she usually doesn't like me gaming while she's with me, but seeing as how it's my birthday I might be able to :P

Of course she can. Why wouldn't she be allowed. As long as she doesn't pull dick moves like sitting near boxes and sabotaging everyone else to help you win. But you wouldn't do that. :P

It's the only way I can think of to convince her to let me play, as we play Mario Kart pretty often. I was just curious because she would take up a spot, that's all.

Ninja, I doubt we're going to get 12 players anyway.

Excite, you mean you can't get online in those games or whenever you try to join a friend it craps out?

I am getting MK7 Saturday, so I will do my best to connect for a game or 50.

Need to add a lot more people to my 3DS friend code list though...

Yup. Me and VOOK are sorting it so whoever gets the game first can get one up.

I'm actually going to be on a lot later on the Saturday, it's my brothers birthday so I'm going to have lots of visitors. I might end up being on at about 10 or 11pm instead.

Also, Mario Kart Wii tonight, meet in the chat room in just under an hour.
