@kkslider5552000: thanks for that link, haha. i'd chalked that up to 'game's over, everyone's happy' goodness myself, but it's cool to know there was actual in-game logic behind it too. :3

Hello Shawn. If you don't ever want her to hate you or talk about you in a negative connotation, I would let her go. I can't tell you the number of girls IRL I know who can't stand their ex simply for the fact that they won't leave them alone and move on with their lives.

Hanging on to the past prevents growth and moving forward. I say don't do it. But you know the situation and your ex better than I do. I'm just letting you know how some girls I know IRL feel about this sorta thing.

listen to this man, for he is wise and his words are truth. perhaps this valentine's season you can find another girl to hang out with? it's one thing to remain on good terms with your ex, but it's another to write a fantasy tale about Valentine's Day with her...

idk, i don't know her or you IRL so i can't say for sure what you should or shouldn't do. you know her best, and i guess you'd know how she'd react to a gift like what you're planning (though as Tasuki mentioned you run the risk of her not knowing your gift upon seeing it and possibly ignoring it or throwing it away). if you do decide to go through with it, it'll either work fabulously or it'll creep her the ever-loving heck out, so prepare for the worst and hope for the best if you go for it, i guess. good luck!

or, they could let you have access to the games in question years before they finally become available as Wii U VC titles. sounds like a helluva bonus to me!

That's what I meant. And if they did that I would have absolutely no problem paying the upgrade fee. Who knows how long it will be before some of these games get released again lol.

er... you kinda missed my point. You've already had access to most of your Wii VC collection for years prior to their re-release as Wii U VC titles. That's your 'bonus' if you choose to pay the buck (or buck fiddy, idk) to upgrade to the Wii U VC version. :3

Re: E-shop account - Frozen after a period of time

theblackdragon

I'm pretty sure Nintendo doesn't freeze your eShop account due to inactivity... i've let mine sit for months at a stretch with no problems.

that said, they may have been talking about 'freezing' as an issue back when the 3DS was first released because it was an issue — people were having their 3DSes freeze on them or throw the Black Screen of Death all the time, or at least that's what people flipping out about it on the forums were saying, lol. i don't remember Nintendo ever officially acknowledging it, though...? either way, i'm sure they'll be able to answer your question later. Have fun!

Money is what's wrong with us. Haven't you read the VC updates for 99¢ posts? Haha. That game's still pretty expensive...

no offense, but one copy of Xenoblade versus 45 or so Wii U VC games... it's a no-brainer
and by 'no-brainer' i mean 'choose Xenoblade' :3

Why should this be free?

Because it utilizes features the Wii U is based around, i.e. Miiverse, gamepad use, and the activity log. Something I find would be very fun to take advantage. I'm so sorry I want to enjoy the most out of the games I buy and the system I paid for.

You bought and paid for a Wii, which is what you purchased your VC titles on. You didn't buy them for a Wii U, you bought them for your Wii. Nintendo has graciously provided you the option to transfer these games to your Wii U if you like, but you didn't buy them for that system, therefore they're under no obligation to provide a version recoded to utilize the features of your new console for free.

I'm not saying it's you personally who's been gung-ho for buying digital vs. physical, Chrono, but I know for a fact Waltz has been all for it — this is what happens when you buy things digitally, and I guess for some of y'all it's a 'worst case scenario' kind of deal. You purchased a license to play your VC titles on a Wii, with no GamePad, no Miiverse, no savestates. The agreement between Nintendo and you when you purchased the game was laid out quite clearly in the fine print. They don't have to provide you a free copy of the Wii U VC version of your Wii VC title no matter how much you want them to do so. It'd certainly be nice if they did, but they have the right to decide against it.

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

@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.
