This is the problem I have with so many game developers; the "my way or the high way" rule, especially when it comes to control options. For instance, some Wii racing game developers think the Wii remote should be the only steering option because that's the way the developers prefer. I would have bought ExciteBots if not for this.

you can't please all of the people all of the time, dude. too bad for you, i hear excitebots was pretty good.

Please use the DSiWare recommendations thread if you're having trouble deciding which game to get, whether the decision is between two different ones or all of the games available on the service. Thank you :3

In a game like Mario, you don't think about how good the jumping is...you just concentrate on enjoying the game. It's only when the jumping in a game is awful (as it was in Niki) that you notice all the things Mario was doing right.

that's pretty much what we were saying in chat while you were playing Bit.Trip BEAT... jayarr was like 'notice the lack of nonstop cursing?' lol... i believe i also noted that the Gaijin Games dude wasn't there to provide tips as you played, and you seemed to be doing fairly well anyway :3

Kingston is the bomb when it comes to RAM, but their compact-flash cards for cameras are absolute crap. considering how much it sucks to lose perhaps weeks of photos (not to mention at least one major photo shoot that was lost and thus had to be done over) because of a messed up memory card, i wouldn't trust their SD cards either, to be honest. not with anything super-important, anyway, lol.

never had a problem yet with a SanDisk memory card/USB stick, though.

Atleast it will make me stronger, even though I'm not supposed to be insulted, I still feel it sometimes.

If ever you feel you have been insulted by a user, feel free to use the 'report' link beside the comment(s) in question, and a moderator will look them over for you. otherwise, assuming the worst about others tends to tick people off and may even push them into making your false assumptions a reality. again, please stop.

That thread may help you out! Not that I'm suggesting lockage of this one...but there's a few suggestions there you may enjoy.

there was also this thread a while back where The Fox was asking for suggestions of one-handed games for a friend of his. you may also find some good ideas there :3

i doubt it, though it'd probably void your warranty and Nintendo would no longer be obligated to provide support, i'd imagine, since they don't know what you may or may not have tinkered with while you had its guts exposed to the world.

@Gavin: bottom line, this is a question you should be taking up with Nintendo proper instead of arguing it on the forums. To us, it looks like an unauthorized modification that would fall under their rules against providing under-warranty repair for such and they may see no obligation to port over the Wii Shop account to a possible replacement console, but perhaps you can persuade them with your eloquence or something. they're the only ones who can answer your question for reals, man.

@BlueFlameBat: if i was going to lock it, i would've done so right after i'd posted. that said, if the 'random thoughts' in here deteriorate and get too objectionable or forum-inappropriate, yeah, i'll lock it eventually. you never know~

also, @R-L-A-George: i've noticed you're continuing to call the people who normally post on the forums 'trolls' when they're not trolling. if the original post isn't forum-appropriate, that will naturally be reflected in the number of normal people 'wtf?'-ing over it and goofing off or disagreeing with you because even they can see the post doesn't belong here. that does not make them trolls, so please stop calling them that.

I'd imagine they'd call it an unauthorized modification considering your wii has an entirely different casing on it now, and they have no idea what else you may have done while fiddling around inside your Wii. if you switched the cases once, though, surely you can switch them again just before sending it off if (god forbid) it needs repair?
