I didn't know that, WarioFan. I thought it was Pyoro everywhere else...thanks for correcting me.

you ain't the only one learning things today. i did not know that either.

I can't say I like Tori to Mame/Bird and Beans as a name... Pyoro is such a cute name by itself. I wonder if we'll see more games outside the Wario minigame-series featuring Pyoro as a character?

as long as you can ignore or turn off the hint system, what's the harm in having it there? if i have to choose between using a game guide to get past a particularly tricky part of the game or listening to an in-game character/watching an in-game animation giving me a general idea of what I need to do next, at least the in-game hint doesn't feel so much like I'm cheating myself out of the general experience by asking for outside help.

I believe that if Nintendo were to release a Mario game on Wiiware that was in the same style as the originals, and they gave it appropriate advertising, it could be the answer to their problem that only a small number of Wii owners use the download service. If they were to generate enough hype then a lot of people would start using the service leading to a lot more sales of other titles too. Mega man 9 was hardly a failure and I feel Nintendo are missing a trick by not doing this. Surely with todays technology it wouldn't be that difficult for them to create a new Mario, also I would be quite happy to pay a little more for it than the average VC/Wiiware game .

it's a good idea in theory, but a Wiiware-only Mario game would (a) alienate Wii users without internet access, (b) alienate users who are not comfortable with giving out their credit card information over an internet connection (which is a real concern nowadays), and (c) turn off the 'casual' audience that the Mario titles have been catering to for years by making them have to work for their game instead of just going down to the store and buying a disc or cartridge to pop into the system. there's also the risk of the game possibly being too large for their Wiiware size limits (who knows what they would want to put in such a title?). I can't see them doing it, to be honest, not with the kind of money a Mario release (not a puzzler, an actual platformer or adventure-based title) pulls in for them from stores.

Opera does have tabbed browsing, but remember that if we're talking about the Wii and DSi, Nintendo worked with Opera to create a special version for their consoles, so it's not really available by default. For tabbed browsing on the Wii, check out this Kotaku article (ha, the link provided there is down) check out the technical stuff here at my.opera.com. i don't know anything about tabbed browsing on the DSi yet, though.

read: they want any actual Mario games to be full-fledged console releases. makes sense, it's a flagship series after all.

also, anything Nintendo patents may or may not show up; all the patent means is that some other game designer can't come up from behind them and use the idea themselves without going through Nintendo or else they'd face some kind of fine or court action. that's all a patent really means, when you get down to it.

I've used both, and noticed no real difference between the two. The speed of your actual connection (check yours at speedtest.net if you're curious) is the deciding factor in my experience.

well, that, and don't be downloading any huge files at the same time (set a limit on your active torrents while you're playing :P).

Also, I have a question about the browser: How do you connect it to the internet while you're out on the open road?

if you're talking about internets while you're on vacation or traveling someplace, there are truck stops and hotels equipped with wi-fi (whether or not you have to pay for it depends on the place, i guess). that's how truckers stay connected, lol.

there's a lot of returning characters, and the story is supposed to be picking up 17 years after the end of IV. I don't doubt that you'd be able to play it on its own without a problem, but you're not going to understand half of what's going on in the background.

Well technically you weren't really wrong since you "always predict them to be bad so [you're] always right or surprised", right? I thought that comment was so funny. :)

expect the worst, hope for the best. it's a solid mindset for a lot of things, not just Nintendo's VC/WW releases. :3
