@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.

@JogurtTheYogurt: No, i don't actually.

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.

Well, I still think this could have been said on the other Luigi's Mansion 2 thread. WiiU is still getting some big games, namely third party it seems, though you guys are getting Pikmin 3, which I wish we were getting on the 3DS.

There's nothing wrong with a LM2 thread in the Wii U section if people would like to brainstorm ideas how the GamePad could be used to enhance the LM experience.

that said, i'm right there with you re: pikmin for 3DS, i wish they were doing a 3DS version too :(

@Shiromikio - The digital version includes a PDF of the magazine, so it's not readable only on an iPad. And you get a free digital copy of the mag when you order a print version, so you can view it both as a PDF and a physical mag.

indeed, when you make your purchase you're given the option to download it right then to your PC if you like iirc :3

No advertising, the team admits it is making no profits from it, and it is a spiritual sequel to a magazine that Nintendo fans were apparently very upset when they heard was being discontinued,

And yet apparently $17 is 'too much.'

Well, folks, if you want to know the reason that print is dying, it's because of that. Cheap gamers that refuse to support the products they claim to love.

$17 is a lot right now, here in January when hours at work are being cut back, everyone's recovering from the spending frenzy of the December holidays and getting ready for tax season. It's a luxury to be able to splurge on the print version when there's a $5 digital version available, especially after being used to paying what, $25 for a year's subscription to a similar product? Deal with it. They are, and they're working to fix the price situation for us so that it's more reasonable.

Do something enough and your body will compensate for it. I've got a nice big lump of a callus on my right middle finger because I draw and write quite a bit, and I've also got a weird callus on my wrist due to the way i pop boxes open at job#1. If you truly play video games enough, that might be why your thumbs are different, Birdman, though it'd probably be more likely that tennis was what caused the differences in your hands due to the strain it puts on them during play (much more forceful than reaching for a D-pad or an analog stick :3)
