I deleted it. From the biased/inflammatory subject line to the first reply to the OP (filled with US-bashing), I did not see anything but a major (and possibly nasty) argument coming from that thread, so I chose to take it out early. If you feel I jumped the gun, N64 Gamer, I do apologize, but please understand that from the way it began, I could see no good coming from that thread at all.

... and now that we all know where that thread went, I'm locking this one. Mystery solved. :)

i have no idea what happened to your thread, dude. all i know is that it was still around before i went to bed last night. i did delete at least one inflammatory reply from it after it was all over... maybe the argument really didn't stop, and someone else just deleted the entire thread to be done with it all? i dunno. :/

I do know that Corbie has mentioned in chat that they're working on redoing the forum rules to add some clearer stuff about blog threads and homebrew discussion, though. You may want to e-mail him before restarting the blog thread entirely. :3

I wouild rate the 2-d Marios as such :

while i agree with SMB3 at the top of the list, are you really rating SMB2(US) higher than SMW? I can't stand it myself... I hope they remake it, because it did have great potential, but the 1up-slot-machine thing is too fickle (for me, anyway) and thus I always blow through my continues whenever I try to play it through without warping. The only playable version of SMB2(US) is the one included with Super Mario All-Stars, where you pretty much have infinite continues thanks to the saving option.

I continue to want to see a NSMB2, though. Picking things up and throwing them were fun, and I can totally see instead of two extra no-name toads, them having the princess and our favorite lovable Toad as playable characters. and Bowser taking a vacation and letting the normal SMB2 villains have at us would be quite the refreshing break. :3

11,113. Posted:

on the larger topic of charger discussion, we bought a Nyko charger back when we first bought our Wii, and it finally died (the battery packs both stopped charging properly/would absolutely not hold a charge anymore no matter what we tried) this past May or so... we got about two years' worth of use out of it, i'd say, since we got the thing back in mid '07. anyone else have any idea how long these chargers are supposed to last? I haven't bothered buying a new one yet because we had a giant pack of AAs laying around that had barely been touched, but if there's a charger set that'll last longer than two years, i'd like to hear about it. :3

also, with the Nyko charger, you can have the wrist-strap attached, you just have to make sure it's positioned right when you set the wiimote back on the charger so that the contacts are all touching properly.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I just saw TWEWY (The World Ends With You) at Wal-Mart for $15 and there were tons of them.

(a) it might've been 29.99; seriously, i don't remember what I paid for it because i bought it last year.
(b) I didn't want to wait a year to play it, I wanted to play it last year, when it came out. Again, if it's a quality game and I have read multiple reviews saying it's good, I'll fork over the dough for it, but otherwise, i'll wait until it turns up used or something where I get it for less than initial retail price. :3

Most people who choose to mod their Wiis (or any other piece of technology) have a basic knowledge of computer-ish stuff anyway, up to and including the fact that when something is 'updating', you leave it the heck alone until it's done doing what needs doing. :3

Just so everyone knows, until I'm told otherwise, I'm only editing out references as to where to find homebrew apps on the internet. I did ask before posting to the main 4.2 update thread (where I said there was already a workaround for homebrew, lol), and Corbie said that was OK, so I assumed that mentioning homebrew exists is OK, but explicit directions on where to find it are not cool.

Also, @Machu -- I must admit I was very confused by the 4.2 thread in general. Back when I originally started this thread, I had pretty much taken clickety's position in a couple of homebrew/hacking for personal use threads, and I kinda got my hands slapped for it, but last i checked (which was days ago) no one had stepped into that thread to tell anyone to stop talking about it... i don't know if it's because it was such a major part of the System Update that the argument/discussion was allowed to slide, or what. :3

If your Wii does, in fact, brick due to the new update, and you have installed no modifications whatsoever to your Wii, Nintendo has promised to fix/replace it free of charge if you call their customer service line (because reports of bricked Wiis are coming from users who have never installed any mods on their Wii whatsoever as well as users with mods). I'd imagine Nintendo would help you by linking your old shop account to any replacement Wii they may have to send you so that you could redownload your stuff, and if you're worried about losing your game saves, back them up to an SD card beforehand.

That said, I do have homebrew installed on my Wii, and not only did it update just fine (though i will agree with Dante in that it seemed to take longer than usual), the HBC survived intact thanks to instructions you can Google yourself if you're interested. ;)
