@Token: If they were to make it a requirement that you have a CN account in order to download games, though, and made it so that you could sign up with CN via the console itself (as an option if you don't want to mess around on your computer), that'd make it much more feasible. I could see them doing something like that via System Update or once Wii2 rolls around.

i think the problem is more that CN was an afterthought in regions outside JP this gen... if it were something integrated into the console, it would've been a very useful tool in terms of allowing the user to change over all their Shop information. they could make it so that you have to connect to the Wii Shop with the original Wii in order to disable all the games you'd downloaded onto it before if they have to (in order to make absolutely sure you aren't just never-connecting-to-the-Shop-again on that Wii so that you can play those games forever)... that'd stop gamesharing in its tracks. and if the original Wii was no longer physically capable of connecting to the internet, they could work out those situations on a case-by-case basis.

@Token: Adam was referring to retail Wii games, where if they have the ability for online play via wi-fi, you can't copy over your save file to SD and back it up -- Brawl is a huge worry for players considering the amount of time people have put into that game in order to unlock everything, and they stand to lose all of that if they have to send in their Wii for repair and Nintendo has to replace it, or if they switch systems and are able to copy over all of their other game save-files except for that one. I wasn't talking about downloadable games at that point. :3

@Adam: the subtitle says 'shin monshou no nazo, hikari to kage no eiyuu', roughly meaning 'new monshou no nazo, hero of light and shadow'. idk what that means to the story aside from it being a remake, though, as i've never played a FE game and don't know what's up :3

@Aviator: it's not your retail games or accessories we're talking about, but downloadables. Once you link your Wii or DSi Shop accounts with your Club Nintendo account, the Club Nintendo account knows what games you have downloaded and will provide you surveys to complete for eligible ones. I do think Club Nintendo could be a viable way to transfer account information across systems someday (as it keeps track of what you have downloaded once you've got everything linked up), all they have to do is tweak it a little and provide the System Update(s) necessary to get people to sign up and link up almost as soon as they've set up their console. :3

It was always Roy Disney (Walt's brother) who was more of the businessman of the two brothers. Walt had the creatively while Roy was the businessman, they were a great pair. In fact Walt helped the rival theme park Knots Berry farm quite a bit in his life

so? surely Walt knew Knotts' Berry Farm would never rival Disney, man. helping the competition like that makes you look like more of a good guy, that's all. just because Walt was more creative than Roy doesn't mean he was never on equal footing in a business sense.

What the heck, Pix? What the heck? If your main problem with the last game was that it's in Flash, how is this helping? Also, have you considered expanding Ninja Story's demo and making it into a short one-sitting game?

I like the astronaut a little bit more now that he is an astronaut. The helmet compensates for the hunchback.

Are you going to make this an exploration game, too? Doesn't look like it ought to be. Ninja Story was a joy to look at as you explored. This is so plain that it feels more like your linear platformer you were planning.

agreeing with every last bit of this. just come up with like a handful of levels for us to get through, provide some kind of goal area to reach and a short plot (he's trying to infiltrate a castle and get out quickly with [insert item here], for example), and just make it a one-sitting game. just finish the damn thing, for cryin' out loud, man, please don't let it die. It's been a lot of fun playing the demos as they've evolved, and the Ninja Story game deserves some kind of closure, even if it's not the full game we were hoping for. :(

@Adam: you'd think they'd have something for the Wii like they do for the DS console family, where you can sit two consoles next to each other, transfer their online play data (games like MKDS, for example, all your stats and saved FCs and whatnot), and then get rid of the first one if you like. we can already do it with the DS/i, so why not the Wii?

@Aviator: considering the surveys we get for VC/WW/DSiW games, i'd have to assume they're linked to our account somehow. they don't have serial numbers, but Nintendo knows that we've purchased copies of said games when we purchase them.
i think this is what you're talking about, lol... if it's not, plz to correct me; it's hard to follow a conversation when you're replying to something referring to a comment from 8765457886754 comments away, lol :3

No, I didn't. I didn't read any of it. What's your point? He doesn't know what kind of games I like.

Speaking of which, you expected an Art Style game to have multiplayer?

EDIT: Especially a Wiiware Art Style game?

so just because it's an Art Style game, we can't hope for multiplayer action? :|

you can always try a demo version at your local Gamestop or Best Buy (if they've changed it over from NSMBW). I'd say if you didn't like SMG, though, you probably won't like SMG2 either, considering it's more of the same so far (but in a great way). :3
