Tonight's the night! We introduced this feature last week and, as we had hoped, you guys (and gals) were totally on board with the idea. We're glad because spending Tuesday nights alone, chained to the radiator and whipped mercilessly as we blog our lives, and fingertips, away just isn't our ideal night. We need the hour-long break. We need the hope. So, read on ahead for all of the details you'll need to get your Mario Kart on with the DS Fanboy staff!

We'll be meeting up in a room set up by reader ConstyXIV. The server is irc.freenode.net and the room we'll be in is #dsfanboy. You might see myself sitting in there early, and unresponsive, as I've been having problems connecting and wanted to keep myself in there to avoid future problems trying to connect. After joining the chat, you'll want to add our friend codes!
  • David Hinkle's Mario Kart friend code: 4 6 8 2 1 0 9 0 8 8 8 8
  • Alisha Karabinus' Mario Kart friend code: 5 1 5 4 7 9 8 6 4 4 3 0
  • Nikki Inderlied's Mario Kart friend code: 2 6 2 0 5 3 7 3 8 8 6 3
Remember to be in the chat at 8PM EST to take part in the carnage! Hope to see you there and, as always, thanks for reading!
