lol, the best part of that game in school was leaving funny headstones and having your friends stumble across them over the network. sounds like it'll be a blast from the past for me. :3

@tav: nope, you just need to be at System Menu 4.0 or later in order to access the SD Card Menu. Just click the little SD card icon while you're on the Wii Menu and the screen will shift to show you what games are available on the card for you to play. Click one, load it, and go.

as for 'given', I do hope you're saying it's been gifted to you via the Wii Shop. If you're saying a friend copied a game from their own Wii to your SD card and you're trying to play it on your own Wii, it won't work. WiiWare/VC games are locked to the Wii they were downloaded on and can't be shared in that manner. :3

@tav: once you've downloaded the WiiWare games to your Wii or SD card, you don't have to stay connected to the internet in order to play them on your own. If you've bought games that offer DLC (My Life as a Darklord, for example), though, you'll need to be connected to the internet in order to purchase and download said DLC, but not to play the game once all your downloading is over.

also, if you're wanting to play against others over the internet (some wiiware games offer wi-fi connection play), you'll obviously need to keep your Wii connected, lol. ;)

Books will be banned next. Those things are dangerous! I mean...if someone can take over an entire plane with a stupid box cutter, imagine what someone could do with all of the dangerous ideas inside a book!

they'll have to have professional readers now who'll scan your books for you. the screening process will now take a minimum of two days in order for the readers to fully digest what they've read and then make a ruling regarding whether or not it contains said 'dangerous ideas'. Thanks a lot for giving 'em the idea, Magi. :P

@dings: SMB2(US) wasn't where luigi's higher jump and farther slides when stopping came from -- that was SMB2(J). We did get the princess's affinity for floating, bob-ombs, shy guys, pokeys, and snifits, though. :3

no, VGA won't output sound, but the laptop's own speakers (or the headphone jack) will still work. A pair of portable speakers would do the trick, or that second cable Raylax posted (it plugs from the headphone jack and gives you the red and white audio inputs for your TV). :3

that's a 15-pin VGA port, it looks like -- something like this would be what you need. also, that 'square one to the right' looks like a port for a built-in modem, lol, and an ethernet port should be to the right of that if i'm reading the symbols correctly. no video from there :3
