I say we ban this "chicken brutus" fellow, whoever he might be.

For such an offense, the only possible punishment is a good ol' tar-and-feathering!

... er, waitaminute... assuming his avatar is a recent picture, he's already feathered, so that won't work.

why not look up what games are available for each? I've never heard of either console, to be honest, so i can't really give you any advice based on which one i'd rather have myself, but if you go through the list of available games, surely one of the two will have more games you really want to play available than the other...

Wireless Communications includes both Wi-Fi Connection functions and plain old DS-to-DS functions. you'll need to make sure it's enabled before you start playing, or (if Animal Crossing behaves like Mario Kart did) you won't be able to connect. you'll also notice that if you attempt to use Download Play, Pictochat, or the DSi Shop without your Wireless Communications turned on, it'll give you an error message telling you to change that option first. :)

this is where the buttons are for me:

news articles: only on editing a comment
forums: only when posting an entirely new topic or editing a comment/topic.

I don't think it's just the browser, either, because I'm using Firefox, which has a built-in spellchecker.

I was so shocked at this news I texted Iwata, and he's totally coming over to my place. We're gonna watch Steel Magnolias and share a carton of ice cream, and then later we'll give each other makeovers. He said it sounded fabulous. :)

actually, a quick google search turned up a Joystiq article about it and this article here on Lines and Colors where they go over both Inchworm and 'Colors!', another drawing program for the DS. here's a different blog with a tutorial video up (for some reason the tutorial vids on the actual Inchworm website didn't work for me :().

i must admit I'm very tempted to go the Colors! route, but I'd have to look into which flash carts actually work with the DSi. hmm.

What do you mean with "I think it might just be the game." (Maybe it's just because I'm german but I do not understand that.)

it sounds like Kizzi is saying that he believes the game itself he's been re-downloading from Nintendo is corrupted somehow.

either way, Kizzi, have you erased the savefile as well? Your save could be corrupted somehow, because the Wii automatically attempts to load your savefile every time you start up a VC game. just deleting the game file will not also delete the corresponding savefile.

What kind of awesome stuff have they had? I've heard of some pretty awesome stuff available on their Club Nintendo store, but I don't know if I've heard anything about their Platinum bonuses before. Also, do you know if getting the Platinum bonus might result in missing out on a totally different gift for Gold level, or do we get both?

well, for example, the 2005 platinum-level gift for Club Nintendo Japan was the Wiimote TV remote control (it's seriously a Wiimote for your TV, i'd take that in a heartbeat lol), and the 2006 platinum-level gift was either Tingle's Balloon fight for DS or a Wiimote battery cover etched with your personal Mii of choice. 2007 was (is still) the year to beat, though, with either the Super Famicom Classic Controller or the 2-disc Super Mario Galaxy OST as platinum prizes (or i guess you could choose the calendar as a platinum member, but why the hell would you want to???). here's last year's Club Nintendo Japan rewards, click the tabs at the top to switch between platinum and gold prizes. looks like platinum members get to choose one of the three items, and the gold prize is the lamest of the three (but still nifty).

personally, i'd just like to have some of this stuff [read: the controller and the Mario Galaxy OST] available eventually to purchase via Coins... i would way rather pay 800 coins for the controller than the hanafuda cards or the Game and Watch DS compilation that's up there at the moment. :P
