Mario Kart DS

So I've been playing Mario Kart DS far more than I probably should be playing it. So much in fact that I beat the entire game, including the 150cc Mirror Mode levels. I remember when I first started playing the game that those levels seemed like a dream that I'd never actually get to see, but somehow I pulled it off. Waiting for my computer to finish defragging or finishing a virus scan helps, because when it's doing that I can always get in a good number o' games.

Cool thing about the game, like many others, is that it allows you to unlock new characters and new karts if you win enough. Dry Bones is probably my favorite character to play as, because he's always clanking his bones around and doesn't make some high-shrilled yelp like some characters do whenever they pass by another kart. But one unlockable character really caught me by surprise...

R.O.B. the Robot in Mario Kart DS! :o

R.O.B. the Robot - the robotic controller from the original Nintendo Entertainment System! He's a really fun character to play as too since he can pretty much manhandle any of the other characters. So yeah, that's easily one of the best unlockables I've ever seen. Anyway, since I just beat the entire game, you get to see the alternate ending screen (they only show this one if you beat all of the courses with a gold medal):

Alternate Ending! :o

Nothing too exciting really, but it was worth playing through all that stuff just to unlock R.O.B. and all of the additional karts.

I've been playing online a bunch using the Nintendo DS WiFi connection. Do any of you have a DS? If so, be sure to post your Mario Kart DS friend codes here and I'll add you to my list. Already been playing a bunch of people from the I-Mockery forums and having a blast in those games, so I hope to see some of you in an online game too!

Here's my Mario Kart DS friend code: 352249-905076



El Guano (Guest) on 01/11/2006 1:32 pm

Wow,i would never have thought they would put R.O.B. the Robot in a Mario Kart game.


calavera (Guest) on 01/11/2006 4:42 pm

hey RoG,
hope ya dont mind me adding you to my friends list, lookin forward to racin ya :P


-RoG- (Guest) on 01/11/2006 4:54 pm

Not at all Calavera, what's your Mario Kart friend code number? I'll add you to my list too.


rCw (Guest) on 01/11/2006 5:29 pm

ah, the good ol' days of mario kart....i wish i had a DS just for that game. Here's to you RoG, you own more cool stuff than I do, therefore i declare you better. :D

"Your eagle catcher is great, but mine is superior, grasshopper"

First time poster! :O:O:O


AngryHydralisk (Guest) on 01/11/2006 5:35 pm

I really need to try to get a DS. I'd get it for this and the new Castlevania...and whatever amazing games could possibly appear on it.


-RoG- (Guest) on 01/11/2006 5:43 pm

Rich, I actually never got the eagle catcher :(, I definitely want it though. Actually, I want two so I can walk down the street with one in each hand while people give me weird looks wondering what in the hell is in my hands. Anyway, welcome to the blog first time poster!

AngryHydralisk, if ya have a GBA you could sell it to put the cash towards a DS. It's definitely an awesome lil' system and I like it far more than the PSP personally. That Castlevania game is on my list actually, but I also just picked up an old copy of Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts for the GBA (which I can play on the DS of course) and that'll keep me occupied for a while. Easily one of the best and hardest games ever created.


Tempest (Guest) on 01/11/2006 11:44 pm

RoG and everyone else looking to get or who has a DS, make sure you pick up "Trauma Center: Under the Knife" It's an awesome surgery game that albeit hard, is just the epitome of Touch Screen goodness. Also if someone near you is dieing, and they ask "Is there a doctor in the house?" you can say with confidence "Yes! Well... kinda... I did play Trauma Center, so stand back and someone get me a Stylus!"

I personally am waiting to get my DS till my local gaming store gets in the latest batch of Black Japanese DSs. They look so much better than US versions. They come in all white, all black, and red (Not like the Mario Kart red DS, the Japanese red is darker and has a black back as opposed to a silver back)


Ruk (Guest) on 01/12/2006 12:25 am

-RoG- (Guest) on 01/12/2006 3:36 pm

Ok Ruk, Kirbykid and Calavera... I've got your codes added in so hopefully we'll see each other on the race tracks soon. You can also keep an eye on this thread for when the I-Mockery message forum members are setting up online matches.

ilu rog.


Blaber66 (Guest) on 01/12/2006 6:25 pm

I still need to pick up Mario Kart and a wireless router, damn it. :(


MrP (Guest) on 01/13/2006 4:15 pm

Mine's 352249 - 969705.

Just gotta get that danged USB wifi connector, now. Ordered it, yet it takes ages to get it in Norway.


Robtina (Guest) on 01/14/2006 1:11 am

I just bought a DS w/ Mariokart bundle yesterday. I also got Wario Ware Touched where R.O.B. pops up a bit in the retro games section. Both games I highly recommend.


-RoG- (Guest) on 01/14/2006 1:58 am

Socks and MrP, just added both of your codes.

Robtina, someone else was telling me the WarioWare mini games were a lot of fun too, I might have to check that one out. Don't forget to post your Mario Kart friend code once you get setup with the Nintendo WiFi connection.


Dr. Volshurawitz (Guest) on 01/14/2006 6:02 am

See! I told you Dry Bones kicks all ass.


Blaber66 (Guest) on 01/14/2006 10:41 am

I finally got Mario Kart DS last night, and its pretty fun. :) I'll try to post my code soon--I have to buy a wireless router.


JiffyRy (Guest) on 01/14/2006 2:23 pm

Hey RoG, I added you to my friendslist. My friend code is 524049-408858. Hopefully we can play each other sometime! Oh, and everyone with a DS, I second getting Trauma Center: Under the Knife, for it is a sweet game. And if you can, get Advance Wars: Dual Strike, one of the best turn-based games ever.


MrP (Guest) on 01/14/2006 9:56 pm

RoG: Get Wario Ware: Twisted. It's much, much more fun than WW: Touched.


Brian (Guest) on 01/14/2006 11:18 pm

I love when people go online with R.O.B. as if everyone is supposed to be impressed.


me (Guest) on 01/15/2006 9:31 am

is there ever going to come another category on the blog than blabber?


MrP (Guest) on 01/15/2006 12:47 pm

Brian: In ROB's defense, his speed rating's great. I'm all about Luigi/Waluigi, myself, but having watched ROB players speed away from me on long straights, he's got some merit as a driver, too ;)


xenogil (Guest) on 01/15/2006 8:19 pm



Blaber66 (Guest) on 01/16/2006 9:05 am

How many people are doing that thing to play that Waluigi level, Tick-Tock-Clock, and that SMB 3 level?


glenward (Guest) on 01/16/2006 6:38 pm

I can't wait to unlock R.O.B. And here I thought Waluigi was going to be the best unlockable.

My friend code is 055898-072914

There needs to be some sort of "look up friend code for other people in your immediate area" web site out there.


Kevin (Guest) on 01/16/2006 8:11 pm

Yeah, I at first was shocked to find out that ROB is a playable charecter, but when you beat 150 cc normal retro cup (i think) you can choose up to 7 karts for each character, and ROB-BLS and ROB-LGS were some of them. I thought it was a cameo, but this was unexpectable. I thought some character from the wario ware series would appear (Epecialy 9-volt or Jimmy) or Wart from SMB2. Like I like to say, Long Live Nintendo! I happen to know my mac adress though: 00 09 bf 37 0a d2.

On a differtent note, I thought ROB was about 8 inches tall, not a 6 foot giant. I hate it when heavier characters bump on you and send you off-stage...but now thanks to ROB's versitality I can stand up for my self. And Drifters. Damn I hate them.


DustBite (Guest) on 01/18/2006 12:34 pm

545524-130107 hope i can play ya soon


Kevin (Guest) on 01/28/2006 10:44 pm

I forgot to mention this: ROB also appears in the game "F-Zero GX", and he is in port town, working as some sort of machine that transfers cargo. Here's the link:


ooooooo (Guest) on 01/31/2006 9:08 pm

Darkracer* (Guest) on 12/06/2006 7:25 pm

Doctor dumbass you unlock R.O.B by finishing any of the 150 mirror mode on all cups.


Darkracer* (Guest) on 12/06/2006 7:32 pm

Here is a tip for you MK fans you know the blue shell it is acyually possible to dodge it without star or bullet bill. Yes there is only one problem though you will only be able to do this on sharp turns like in wario stadium, now here is what to do it takes a hell of a lot of practice to get the timing perfect when the blue shell is just about to hit you and you are taking a sharp turn do a powerslide quickly and just before it slams down let go and get that extra boost and boing at the same time the boing is very crucial don't forget it so what are you waiting for go and try it its tricky but you'll get the hang of it not even i'm a pro yet i'm still practicing! see ya!


Darkracer* (Guest) on 12/08/2006 10:05 pm

I know that this is kinda of late cuz i dicovered this only about 2-3 days after i got mario kart last year but in the missions section there is actually a 7th stage where the boss is the wiggler all you have to do to unlock it is to get at least a one star rating on every other stage.


nick (Guest) on 01/16/2007 9:36 pm

Brook (Guest) on 07/12/2008 6:37 pm

Mario cart is probably one of the most enyairtaining games I have ever played in my life. Mario cart is a very simple and fun game thats why i like it so much.


George (Guest) on 08/31/2008 9:07 am

I really like Mario cart, simple but good game. One day I would like to have game reviews at my website at My Greek Village. The problem is that there arent that many Greek games....


Cactuar (Guest) on 12/21/2008 2:18 pm

I too, have beaten this game. It only took me 1 month. When I first got the game, I was like wow! at 150cc mirror mode. Then I got R.O.B. when I thought I had everything unlocked already. After that I accquired 36 karts, a new title screen and a new thanks for playing screen after the credits. The credits become different after you beat the game. They show R.O.B. passing everyone else including the first unlockables.
