@Bankai - I thought you were for people being paid for their work, and against the devaluation of products? This is Nintendo doing work to improve the Virtual Console. And unlike others, they're asking to be compensated for it. Just because others are saying "we'll do it for free", why is it a bad thing because Nintendo doesn't feel they can do the same thing at no cost?

thank you for putting my thoughts into words.

I'm pretty sure everyone's already discussing their favorites, CrimsonFire13 — we don't need yet another thread for the Nintendo Direct, do we? Please feel free to post your thoughts to any of the existing threads — here's one if you'd like to join them in their discussion. Thank you! :3

no, but you are suggesting that people who have purchased it for one console should be able to download a version updated for use on another console for free. It's the same principle, you're paying for the same exact game twice, but this time around it's able to take the fullest advantage of the current console. If you don't want to pay, fine — play it in Wii Mode. No one's forcing you to pay for the Wii U VC version, you're welcome to keep using the Wii VC version of said games on your Wii U.

@TBD: It's more of the fact that Nintendo is doing this out of pure greed. I just never thought that they would charge for updates, but I should have known. It's really the idea behind it that bothers me more than anything else.

If this was for the Wii itself, you might have a point about 'greed' and paying for updates, but it's for the Wii U, a brand new system. For them to go out of their way to even offer the updated VC titles is a good thing, much less to offer people who've already bought the games for their Wii a discount on the updated versions.

Again, it's an option. If you don't like it, no one's forcing you to pay for it.

Either way, I don't see the big deal paying a buck for the upgrade. If you don't care about GamePad functionality, leave 'em in Wii mode.

hey guys, we understand that the video has been removed — please, if you're going to post a link to the same video hosted on another site, make sure the site doesn't ask our users to download anything. We'd all love to be able to trust everything we see available on the internet, but in truth there's no telling what's lurking out there on file-sharing sites waiting to bite, and downloading an .exe from a site you've never been to before is a serious red flag. If the video is no longer viewable over the internet and someone wants to go find it to download, they can take the risk and google it up for themselves. Thanks in advance! :3

Feel stupid for the Wii being the only Nintendo console I haven't owned.

no big deal, i know i missed out on the GBA and GC and have been slowly trying to get all the better games i missed during their lifespans as well. If you'd like any further suggestions as to which Wii games to pick up, we've got a thread where you can ask that question right here. Enjoy! :3

Correct me if I'm wrong, here — DaveGX doesn't see the problem having the Wario bros. show up in a 'Mario bros.' title. Chrono seems to think that it being a 'Mario bros.' title automatically excludes any other potential family members. is this what you guys are tail-chasing about?

I'm serious about having the petty insults and the tail-chasing stop, guys. if you can't be civil, please stop replying to each other and focus on something else.

@Chrono: I'm pretty sure that Birdo's sexual orientation has never been revealed, just that he thinks he's a girl. also, you're correct about Wario being referred to as Mario's cousin via Nintendo Power magazines, but it's never been officially confirmed.
That said, now that both you and DaveGX have decided it's hopeless to talk to one another, I do hope you'll leave each other alone and concentrate on games you can't wait to see hit the Wii U, please and thank you. :/

All right, guys, we know two things:

(a) Yes, people are still reporting that freezes are happening.
(b) The only way to do something about it is to contact Nintendo, let them know exactly what happened, and hope they come up with a fix in the next System Update.

This is nothing new. It happened with the 3DS (anyone remember the Black Screen of Death problems? funny how everyone seems to have forgotten), and it's happening now with the Wii U. Don't like it? Contact Nintendo. Thank you, drive through.

Actually, what I said was to move the discussion to the main Pokemon B/W2 discussion thread, not to just create a new thread for the same thing in GD. That said, I can't recall having a thread specifically for offering advice and suggestions about other players' competitive teams (as opposed to 'hey i'm using rattata, pidgey, and pikachu, what are you using'), so I'm going to leave this open.
