considering the unlikelihood of me being able to pull something like that off convincingly, I'd say the friend would be better off in jail for life without me accompanying him (for up to five years) for perjury.

Contact nintendo, send them your wii.

Edit: you'd think if it was so 'infamous' that you would know what to do, huh? :O

I already had this problem last year, a few months after I bought my Wii. They fixed it last time for free, and I really don't want to go through this again.

You may not want to go through it again, but it looks like you have to — you already know what to do, apparently. You'll fight with it, and it may work sometimes, but in the end you're going to have to contact Nintendo. Be quick, though — your warranty is updated after any repair to be a full year from that point iirc (at least that's what happened with my DSi when i sent it in) so don't let the new warranty lapse without having it repaired again.

You realize you can get SMB1, Lost Levels, 2, 3, World, and RPG on the Virtual Console, don't you? None of those require any motion sensing controls at all. :3

@Tasuki, Waltz: It's a very, very fine line to tread. Shameless self-promotion is one thing, but at this time i'm viewing this thread in the spirit of users opening themselves up to feedback and critique on each other's blogs, not pro websites, forums, YouTube channels, etc. Had Ouenben opened this post for the sole purpose of plugging his blog alone (and if he also had a history of namedropping it for no good reason), I would already have shut this post down. Until i'm told otherwise by The Powers that Be, i'm going to let this thread stand.

If you guys have (or if anyone else has) any further questions regarding this decision, please feel free to get in touch with us directly so that this thread can stay on-topic. :3

@Ouenben: No offense, but the explanation as to why we let this thread stand and delete/lock so many others needed to come from one of the moderation team, not you. Next time, please just report any offensive comments and let us handle it. Thank you!

Actually, at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/ , you'll see that the entire state of California is riddled with dots representing quakes, mostly minor, in the last 7 days. And most times there's a major US quake, it's in California. So, no, I did not get it from a "cartoon"!

I understand you're still freaking out over the earthquake that just happened where you're at, but come on — did you forget those earthquakes a couple months back in CO and VA? Alaska and Arkansas are also popular states for good-sized quakes to hit. :3

Hey guys, just stepping in for a quick reminder of how this thread works:

  • Please play fair, don't change the word of the person before you just because you feel like it. Give them the benefit of the doubt if you think their word doesn't make sense; perhaps in another context it would make for a valid sentence. Be creative!
  • No double, triple, quadruple, etc.-posting. Please be patient and wait for another person to add a word.
  • The 'story' is being written 'one word at a time' — that means you only get to post one word at a time.

Thank you all in advance for playing nice! :3

@Waltz: If they'd chosen to place the blame firmly on the new features and whatnot they were packing into it, great! I'd totally be cool with them thinking their game alone is good enough to merit the price, it's whatev'. That's not what was said, however, and you can't go around wiping their butts for them and putting words into their mouths — you're not their PR guy! Until they either hire you or backtrack on their own, all we can go by is what they've said. Not you.
