Like actually hitting the brakes once in awhile? I think what kills me is it's much harder to pull away from the pack at 200 cc so you're always involved in all the chaos of the items. So just one random slipup of the three races even if you have a perfect run otherwise is all it takes to ruin your chances of three starring the cup.
In addition to very occasionally and strategically letting off the gas, the main techniques are variations of the power slide: brake-sliding (tapping/pressing the brake while in a power slide) and tight-sliding (power sliding with the analog stick at about 5:00 or 7:00 depending on turn direction, instead of 3:00 or 9:00, for a tighter slide turn). I don't know what those techniques are really called, but that's how I refer to them. Once you get the hang of all that, you can take turns faster and it's a little eaiser to pull away a little bit. It's also pretty key to know the tracks well and leverage shortcuts.

Boo! All the discounted games (so far) that I'd want, I already have.

I wouldn't mind Tennis or Zelda but if any system begs to be "all digital," it's the Switch. So I'll patiently wait for a digital deal.

Yeah, me too. Nintendo has trained me to jump on their games early because of lack of sales. The bright side is that it's not like I paid that much more for them.

Also, Amazon at least has the digital versions on sale for some of them but they're 5 bucks more.

FWIW, Zelda is $40 for digital as well.

I'm tapped out from the PS5 launch though, so I'll have to get in on the next one.

I have over 40 games on my wishlist, mostly indie games - so I hope a good number of those will be on sale for BF.
