Howes - now with longer hair!

NewerShadow (or as most people call him, Howes) is a Karter who decided to play KotH and puzzle hunts.

Howes first stumbled upon the Mario Kart sites in summer 2007, while he was looking for comparisons for his (admittedly weak at the time) time trial runs for MKDD. From there, he went on to climb the charts at a fairly rapid pace, reaching the top-200 in just over 8 months, before beginning his pattern of playing for a few months and taking extended breaks. During these breaks, he would often play one of the other kart games that he owns like mksc or mkds, or one of the other Nintendo games that he owns. His main goal is to reach the top-100 in MKDD.

Within the community, Howes is fairly well-known. Before 2009, he mainly stuck to the game related boards, with most activity coming on mkdd. In 2009, his posting picked up mainly due to the introduction of mafia games on the general boards, where he has participated in a large majority to little success. As of 2010, Howes is a times updater for the MKDD site, and both a times updater and occasional news writer for the MKSC site.

Howes began coming to the-elite AIM Chatroom in fall of 2009, when he was invited by Thingy to play KotH. Immediately after KotH, he left for some time, and returned for the Elite Puzzle Hunt, and has continued lurking chatting since then.

Howes attends Northwestern University just outside of Chicago as a computer science major, and is an ardent follower of their sports teams, attending all home football games and several home basketball games. If you're looking to spot him on television, your best shot would be on Big Ten Network's coverage of these games, where he may be visible in the student section.
