@Egg miester: there's plenty of reviews out now, and people can make up their own minds. I get the feeling not many people are going to listen to your opinion considering you've never played it yourself, though.

I didn't say they were out of the picture, I was just offering my own opinion on them. Ant said in the Have Your Say thread that poll software was in the works.

@WaveBoy: You can't just send downloaded VC/WW titles to other people. You have to purchase the game again as a 'gift' and then you'll be prompted to choose which of your Wii friends you'd like to send the gift to -- can't send a gift to someone if you guys aren't mutual Wii friends. :3

This project is a great idea, but please, you are a very new user asking us to trust you enough to download your file, lol -- no offense, but we don't know where your computer has been, and you don't know where any of ours have been either (when that file gets sent back to you, of course :3)... for everyone's safety, why not try something like Google Documents, where anyone can edit it over the internet without having to download anything? We already have a thread featuring an editable document for DSiWare in this same vein if you'd like to see an example of how it'd work.

considering it's been confirmed that we'll be able to run games directly ..., i'd imagine there would have to be some sort of SD card menu. idk if it'll be graphically similar to that of the Wii, but i can't see it working as promised without one.

These new Wiiware games made to resemble the good old days of gaming always bring a smile to my face. Stuff Like Konami's Rebirth series, Capcom's Mega Man 9 and 10 as well as the new Sonic 4. It's really hard to find kids who can appreciate these type of oldschool games. In todays world where Graphics are the biggest selling point to the youth of the current generation. I'm soo glad I was raised in the early days when games were games. Most kids today probably take one look at old stuff and go.... Yuck what garbage is that you're playing?

way to assume the worst about today's generation... there are plenty of kids on these forums here and now who appreciate the games we grew up with as kids ourselves. yeah, most other kids who aren't heavily into games might not go for the classic stuff now, but as they age into adulthood and their tastes mature they'll gradually gravitate toward the classics. it's just like TV, books, or other forms of entertainment. It's not worth getting worked up over just because a 12-year-old turns their nose up at what you may personally consider a retro masterpiece.

honestly, there is no teaching to be done here... you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. move on and play the games you like, don't worry about what anyone else thinks about 'em.

@hulklol: you may want to read over what the Scoring Policy has to say about a 7:

7 - Good

A seven is not average in our eyes. This game will sport a few areas where the game is blatantly let down to the detriment of its overall quality and enjoyment, but it is NOT average. A seven is still a recommendation, but you might want to consider what we thought let the game down and decide for yourself if it would bother you before buying.

You may not be happy with it getting a 7, but in no way is a that a negative score in and of itself.
