I'm thinking that the games lowest price could go as low as $34.99 and the reg price would be $39.99. And for the EPIC games that come out, I'm thinking $44.99.

Yeah, the console will be priced in between $200 and $250 and the price of games will be $39.99 and $49.99

No price ranges for the device or its games have been confirmed at all. Please don't spread unsubstantiated rumours.

pretty sure that's just his opinion; this whole topic is conjecture at best anyway.

I'm with Clinker -- i'm pretty sure i've read that they can't take fan submissions regarding new games. it was either something along the lines of 'we don't have the time and manpower to process all of the submissions we receive' or 'we can't legally accept game idea submissions, please don't send them to us', i forget exactly. :3

a feature for this has been in the works for over a year now; until it's released, the admins have asked that no reader reviews be posted to the forums. Ant's working on some site/forum upgrades at the moment, as mentioned back in the Have Your Say thread. the only thing we can do is ask for your continued patience.

In the meantime, if you have a blog/site you post reviews to or a YouTube account, you are more than welcome to put a link to it/them into your sig.

The latest Nintendo DS game I played that was somewhat disappointing is Contact. It's really bland and the story was just not interesting at all, although I admit that I did had a few hours that I was actually enjoying it, so it's not completely rubbish.

the latter part of your statement is why i didn't list Contact myself. i did like it for a little while, and i enjoyed the 4th-wall-breaking and LiveJournal-themed instruction booklet that was going on, but the closer i got to the end the more chore-like it became. wound up trading it in, myself.

I enjoyed the demo, but 15 levels doesn't seem like much content...

Well, that's only 30 cents per level. Doesn't seem too bad considering the replayability.

What is the replayability once you complete a level?

lol, this -- i might go back in if i'm feeling masochistic one day, but not right now... and certainly not Betamax anytime soon :3

took me an hour and a half, but i've beaten all the levels. holy hell Betamax was the absolute worst, but i somehow managed to beat it with 22500 points left (how the eff did i manage that, hahaha), and Spnt was also pretty crazy, but it wasn't a bad game for 500 points. definitely brutal, kinda wish there were more levels though.

@Token: the 'secure code' thing he's talking about is different -- it's something that works through participating online sellers that helps to make your transactions more secure, an additional verification popup that comes straight form MasterCard and is not shared with the retailer at all. i don't have a MC myself, so idk if the Wii Shop is set up to use the secure code thing or not. the bank he gets his card through probably had no idea what he was attempting to access, just that he was trying to buy something online, so they set him up with that hoping that it would help him out.

here's what Nintendo has to say about it. basically it says if you're running System Menu 4.0, your Wii console is compatible with SDHC Cards up to 32 GB. SDHC Cards with a capacity higher than 32 GB won't work.

Yoshi's Island DS -- coming from the awesomeness that was the SNES game, this was just crap IMO. it felt gimmicky as hell, shooting eggs with any kind of accuracy was impossible; i traded it back in quickly lol
Kirby's Canvas Curse -- it was too easy, felt like another cheap gimmick just to get people using the touchscreen. no thanks.
Scribblenauts -- thankfully a friend let me borrow it instead of me paying for it, because i was not impressed at all. :(

@Tech101: lol, what if he were to get mugged on the way to the store or something? which option is safer now? :3 another point is that you can't purchase points cards for less than 2000 points, unlike getting them through the Shop (i usually wind up buying my points by the 1000 myself, only what i need for the next game i want, y'know?)

@JumpMad: another thing to consider is that your credit-card company could've put a hold on your account because they need to get in touch with you about something. lol, my bank did that to me one time because I'd bought gas at the same gas station twice in one day (once in the morning before work, and then once later that day when my husband drove us to the store or something); i missed the letter they'd sent me via snail-mail and hadn't logged into my account online in a week because I hadn't needed to check my balance, so I didn't know what was going on when all of a sudden my purchases with it were being declined.
PROTIP: never put your card into an ATM machine if it's being mysteriously declined -- you won't get it back :(
