Considering that the online was both free and kind of bad (great for downloads, not so much for multiplayer), I'm fine with it.

As long as the Wii U keeps free online, I won't be upset. As for Pokémon and online Wii Games, the only thing I'm a little upset about is Pokémon and not even that much. Pokémon is more of a local thing to me and if I want to, there's online. The DS games before Black and White didn't use WPA wifi anyway, so I couldn't play those online and every time I jumped into a match with Black or White, the opponent would spam Substitute which made the match not fun.

Sure, I can see why people would feel burned by this, but I don't see a reason to sweat it. It's not like it's a paid service that you won't get a refund for.

Apparently, this is the real reason the DS and Wii's online is getting shut down

That makes a lot more sense. I can at least accept that, even though I still don't like it. Eff GameSpy then.

Eh, still should have saw this coming, especially for a free service. Companies shut down servers all the time, MH3 being a good example. (and yes people complained a LOT about Tri's online being shut down, even after months of 3U's release. :p )

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

now it makes a little more sense but I think it took long enough for the DS since 99.9999% of the DS games need a WEP key in the wifi

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Yeah, though it's not the games that need WEP, it's the DS. If you play DS games on the 3DS, I'm pretty sure you can use wifi security that isn't WEP.

Wait, so we're going to be forced to wait for any VC titles that already came out, with the only alternative being going retro? And what about Wiiware? Dsiware is safe on 3DS, but Wiiware is dead as Doc Louis's PunchOut!! in a few months.

No. The shops are still going to opened. You can still download anything from those shops.

Nope, they still use their own settings (WEP)

I just thought "Wait a minute, couldn't Nintendo have just bought the NWFC servers from Glu Mobile?" I decided to look up more on it and found out Glu Mobile would have wanted a fee of billions of dollars (I mean "billions" as in a huge fraction of Nintendo's entirety) for Nintendo to pay before they could obtain the NWFC servers from them. The main reason why Nintendo made "Nintendo Network" separate from "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection" must of been because Nintendo Network would be based at Nintendo itself unlike NWFC.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance games missing from the Wii U VC.

Really? Could have sworn I played B/W on my 3DS without WEP. I must be mistaken then.

I actually used WiFi and this is a really sad news. But since the Wii shop channel isn't affected then there's nothing much to be sad about, lol!

only B/W/2 can use WPA

Any DSi-enhanced game can use WPA. Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 are DSi-enhanced so they can all use WPA.
