Actually, under normal circumstances this would be deemed unconstructive and against the spirit of our Rules (as it is not only an image macro, it's one encouraging piracy), so it would be edited or deleted entirely at the discretion of the moderator dealing with it. as an example of what we don't want to see happening, though, i'm letting it stand :3

@Shane904: That would count as current-gen since you're doing it on a current-gen platform. Discussing your experience with it on an actual Wii would be okay; discussing your experience with it in Wii Mode on a Wii U is not.

He's asking about fan remakes (Sonic 2 HD and Project AM2R, for example), which I believe have been discussed in articles on this site before.

I think these are things we'd just keep an eye on — it's one thing if users are discussing playing these games but a whole 'nother kettle of fish if the devs behind them were coming here, offering up files for download and asking our users for input on some sort of special beta version, for example. It would depend on how the topic plays out, i suppose. :3

@Neko_Rukiafan: I didn't delete your thread, it was archived with an explanation: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii/fishing_resort_review#...

the bottom line is that I had to step in with another user who had also posted a full review to our forums this very morning, and it would not be fair for me to allow your thread to continue to slide under the radar with an available recent duplicate (i hadn't seen it before for whatever reason, that's why I hadn't locked/redirected it sooner). Artwark's thread had no available recent duplicate, so theirs was allowed to stay open, but yours had a duplicate available to redirect towards — one you had created, no less.

If you want proof of the reason behind reader reviews being disallowed on the forums, it is here. This rule has always been there. If you have seen it go unenforced for whatever reason, it's merely because we cannot be everywhere at once and if something doesn't get reported, we may miss it. Artwark's thread earlier had been reported and was handled, and then I found your thread while looking for something else earlier. Call it the [un]luck of the draw.

If you'd like to continue being dramatic, that's on you, but the least you could've done was just ask if you had a question regarding an act of moderation here. :(

Hey guys, sorry I didn't catch this sooner, but it's not fair for me to ask one user to not post reviews to the forums this morning and then let this continue to slip past. It's okay to post your impressions and stuff, to talk about how you enjoyed games or not, but per a long-standing request from the directors, formal reviews are not allowed to be published to our forums. You're welcome to host your review(s) on your own site and link to them via your user signature and/or profile information, but that's as far as we go at this time with regard to reader reviews. Please be more careful in the future. :3

Here's a link to your thread from a few months ago about this game, @Neko_Rukiafan, if you'd like to continue this discussion there. Enjoy! :3

Hey Artwark, I'm going to ask that reviews not be published to our forums, please. It's a long-standing request from the site directors that we not have users using our forums for reader reviews. That said, we haven't had a thread about this game in a while, so I'm changing the title so that it's just a general thread. Please don't do this again, though. Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure it's in the works.

On a related note (no i'm not reviewing the game, just wanna talk about it), i don't think i've seen a thread for this yet, so i've taken the liberty of turning this into one. has anyone else given this game a try? i picked it up on impulse myself — the story is predictable and the translation is mid-90's Konami-style atrocious, but i'm a sucker for that sort of thing. the gameplay is interesting, but the difficulty level ramps up on you quick once you've got them unlocked. i need to try grinding my doods up some levels and see if that helps. :3

brock vs bryan was the original plan for summerslam actually but since bryan got injured Cena took his spot. In both cases I assume Brock would have won the belt.

i know, and i reiterate: DB beating Brock to get the belts off of him would fall into the 'it'd take a miracle' category, lol :3

@ELI-ASH: it'd be like David and Goliath though, one good suplex and he'd be dead in the water. remember, Cena has F5'd Big Show in the past and dumped him over the ropes singlehandedly more than once back in his heyday. Taker is also a pretty big guy and has consistently held his own against other large wrestlers. somehow i can't see DB as ruthless or dangerous enough to take on Lesnar the way they're hyping him now, and coming back from a major injury, it'd be like throwing away all that expensive surgery and rehab time they've invested in him to have it be spoiled by one too-rough move. it'd be like throwing a chihuahua in with a rottweiler or something, so i'd class that under 'miracle', lol.
