i know this is a bit random and i dont know how to use this site. but does anyone have an extra dota 2 account. ive just been dying to play the game. you know what it feels like when your desperate haha
Nintendo...who have brought us amazing games like Super Mario 64, Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country are also responsible for one of the worst items to ever be created in a videogame PERIOD.
Before the days when gamers flamed infinity ward for adding deathstreaks which 'aided' the weak.. was a period of gaming when nintendo decided to punish skill and talent so that the weak would stand a chance against the onslaught they would otherwise face.
This item is capable of turning the tides incredibly quickly in a race. About to cross the finish line in first place? See that blue shell coming for you? Well.. enjoy 7th position. This has happened heaps of times to every mario kart participant since the 64 era when the blue shell was first introduced, marking the decline in the series in only the second entry. Since then they have been in EVERY SINGLE entry, marking mario kart as one of the more recognized games where the F Bomb has been said in quick succession.
The rage which the blue shell brings could have been remedied if only there was ANY item which can counter/nullify it, like a shield of some sort. But the only 2 things you can do to not get his is either suck at mario kart or sacrifice yourself by purposely jumping out of the track and reseting yourself. Even a complete novice who is in last place with no chance of coming first has the opportunity to **** your race up by throwing a blue shell and still not get out of 8th place.
This item has no place in Mario Kart and has no place in video games.
Yeah I have allways hated this item, it's like they are punishing you for being good enought to get into 1st place. Red Shells are also really bad. Anything in a racing game, that "automatically" does something for you, is a fail in my books :P
