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

Seems the hackers and modders are having lots of fun posting nonsense around the web, just cos Ninty messed with their homebrew.

... because gamers don't naturally blow stuff like this waaaaaay out of proportion anyway, whether they choose to use homebrew or not... :/ Considering there was a fix for homebrew like the next day (or really soon after it hit, either way), why would the hacking/modding community have to do anything but sit back and laugh as everyone else worked themselves into fits over it? 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. ;)

it really depends. solid, quality titles, like Bowser's Inside Story or TWEWY, yeah, i was willing to fork over the dough for. other stuff, though, i might wait to find used instead.

However, Dave's admission wasn't that he "dated" women from the show, but had "sex" with women from the show and that seems to imply that he as an employer may have used "favors" to advance co-workers which of course is wrong.

'seems to imply' my foot -- the fact that he had relations with some people who also worked on the show implies nothing on its own. why can't a woman sleep with a man holding a superior position at the workplace without the insinuation that she's trying to sleep her way to the top? >:/

either way, do we know that he directly had any kind of power over who did and did not advance within the company? if he did, some passed-over candidates for promotion may have some legal recourse... other than that, the 'who cares?' sentiment totally stands. :3

Flipnote is a Nintendo app... one of the Iwata Asks interviews covers how it came about. The internet side of it is run by Hatena because Nintendo partnered with them (Nintendo didn't want to deal with it themselves/couldn't quite think of how to take on that kind of load, so they went with Hatena to help them out instead), but the app itself was all Nintendo's doing.

What credibility? he's David Letterman, the late-night comedy show host, not David Letterman, congressman... or David Letterman, President of the United States of America, for that matter. Why do I (or anybody else) have to trust him in order to chuckle at him briefly and then change the channel, like normal? He's got some explaining to do to his own family and friends, sure, but since I don't know him personally (and perhaps more importantly, I don't work for him ;)), I must say that what he's done with whomever does not affect me (or what I think of him, considering I don't normally think of him anyway) one bit, and thus, this is a non-issue for me. :)

@N64 Gamer: unfortunately, that's what you'll have to settle for, it seems. if you value being her friend still, that's one thing, but if you were only in it just to get with her, it's best to just let the friendship die IMO. i know i wouldn't want someone hanging around me that only wanted to get in my pants and didn't care about being my friend otherwise. :/

one of my favorites for quite a while (on YTMND, anyway) has been Epic Maneuver (though it got done to death). i've got that part of Ghost Love Score on my phone as my main ringtone. :3 there are other hilarious Star Trek-related memes there, such as No Class and Epic Pacard.

as for internets-wide memes, though, THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAAAAAA ranks fairly high with me. much love for that movie. :3
