@longtimegamer: i think he was hesitant to post it here because technically Nintendo has taken those games down, but as you'd still be paying them Wii Points for the games involved, their laziness is your lucky day. hope you don't mind me posting the instructions here for the sake of convenience, SKTTR — who knows when Nintendo'll fix the loophole :3

SKTTR's BL wrote:

You can still download SOME of the removed games from the Wii Shop by using an exploit in the Nintendo Channel.

Eight games were removed:
1. The Last Ninja 3 (VC/C64)
2. R-Type (VC/SMS)
3. LONPOS (WW)
4. Diner Dash (WW)
5. Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem (WW)
6. Gods vs Humans (WW)
7. Racers' Islands - Crazy Racers (WW)
8. Racers' Islands - Crazy Arenas (WW)

Two of those games are not listed in the Nintendo Channel, and thus not accessible.

  • The Last Ninja 3 (VC/C64)
  • Racers' Islands - Crazy Arenas (WW)

Two* games are accessible, but the DOWNLOAD-button is deactivated:

  • R-Type (VC/SMS)
  • Diner Dash (WW)
  • possibly LONPOS (WW) as well, but I can not check it because I got it before it was removed.

That leaves three (or four*) removed games that are still linked from the Nintendo Channel, and still have their DOWNLOAD-button activated:

  • Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem (WW)
  • Gods vs Humans (WW)
  • Racers' Islands - Crazy Racers (WW)

To download these games, start the Nintendo Channel,
> click "Find Titles for You",
> click "Search by Name",
> then put in a word from the games title,
> click on the games title,
> click "Wii Shop Channel",
> click "Yes".

You'll be linked over to the Wii Shop Channel page of the specific game (that you can not access by using the Wii Shop Channel alone).

Now you can download these games legally if you have the Wii Points.

Have fun and be quick before Nintendo locks this loophole!

This was tested on a PAL Wii. I cannot guarantee if this trick works with an American Wii. Hope you're lucky though, and get the awesome The Magic Obelisk and Jungle Speed among the other removed ones.

lol, maybe that's my problem then, JR — i keep going back and reworking the dahak to make it more awesome. i guess that has the unfortunate side-effect of making an already easy game that much easier :3

i'm in Part 2, Chapter 4, and... i gotta admit i'm still not feeling it. Believe me, i want to flat-out love this game, but all you really do is advance the story, do quests/collect stuff, customize the Dahak... repeat ad nauseum. it's adorable, the game looks beautiful for sure, but it's getting harder for me to want to push myself to keep doing the quests to earn rings because they're all the same boring activities — find this thing, talk to these people who have nothing to do with the main story, move these boxes around, beat these guys, destroy this crap, mash A in between taps of B... etc. and so forth.

and those air race sequences can eff right the hell off. coming into this game straight from SF643D, just... no. I keep wondering if it's sad that the most fun I'm having with this game is customizing the Dahak. i think that's my love of Tetris and puzzle solving talking, though :/

that said, the plot is interesting, and the only reason i'm pushing to get through this game is to figure out what the hell is going on — that was quite the plot twist, lol. that transformation sequence is the most ridiculous thing i've seen in a long time, though — it's hard to take Red seriously when he looks like he's in his boxers or swim trunks, if that makes any sense.

ITT: OP makes fun of staff on another site, gets banned. I fail to see the issue — like us here at NL, I'm sure they work too hard to pump out content for their userbase to put up with people who only want to poke fun at their staff.

There's a difference between 'constructive criticism' and 'trolling'. Maybe someday you'll realize where you went wrong.
