Re: NL Users You Never See Anymore...

theblackdragon

@Luigi-La-Bouncy: I don't know if you just figured something sinister was going on behind the scenes or not, but all we do is edit out 'firsts' from otherwise-valid comments or delete them outright if all they had to say was 'first'. Also, Bahamut ZERO left the forums of his own accord as i recall -- he posted about it, but it was a long time ago. He said he might be back, but it never really happened.

@StarBoy, grenworths: this is the message from VGM Terra passed on to all of us in chat the other day --

[18:18] Terra now has the permission of VGM to tell everyone why he's leaving
[18:19] Terra: He says that he's finding Chat and the Forums rather boring lately and needs a break
[18:20] Terra: And he's not leaving because he didn't get accepted into that School because he hasn't even heard from them yet
[18:20] Terra: He says He'll still be in contact with some of us through Youtube and Xbox and that he will be back at some point

Thomas I share your concerns, Nintendo could power down the service tomorrow, and never have to refund anything. Who knows how long they will support it?

Nothing lasts forever. I don't understand why people are upset that that reality counts for downloads too. - waltzelf

Because you do not own it. You cannot ever get a refund or trade it. You cannot do anything with it. You get a bad game, it is done, points gone. I buy a bad retail game I list it on EBAY the same day and get paid money for it when it sells.

That is a huge difference what am I missing?

i don't think you're missing anything, man. in terms of WiiWare and other digital downloadables, you pays your money and you takes your chances, really. i'm not really okay with it, but there's quite a few great games i wouldn't have ever been able to play had i not just gone with the flow on this one. i'm dreading the day when my Wii and DSi finally go kaput and i'm out hundreds of dollars in games i won't be able to transfer over to a new (or newly-bought used) system because Nintendo refuses to support the Wii anymore. :/

Re: Is this what nintendo customer service always does?

BigPaws wrote:

is all custservi do is market?

No, what customer service does is skim through the hundreds (if not thousands) of e-mails they receive daily in order to come up with an answer to all of them. From the way you explain what it was you asked, it sounds like they mixed up the terms 'firmware' and 'hardware' and replied to you thusly, that's all. I'm sure if you reply to that e-mail correcting that person politely, they'll respond with a canned answer about how they don't know about any firmware updates coming down the pipeline at this time. no ranting necessary. :/

we used to do the same as Rowdy in my house. the only thing the 'suspend play' feature does is save the console from getting hot enough to fry an egg on it, lol. :3

Re: Is there a way to re-download Monkey Island II (which locks up)

theblackdragon

@garicnebula: if you paid for it or had it gifted to you, you don't (or at least you shouldn't) have to pay for it again. seriously, call Nintendo's customer service hotline before paying more and see what they have to say.

Re: Is there a way to re-download Monkey Island II (which locks up)

theblackdragon

if you've already purchased or have been gifted something, anytime you go back to check out that game you should be presented with two buttons -- one for 'download, 0 points' and the other for 'gift' at the game's full price. i believe there's also an option to just see things you've already downloaded that are re-downloadable (so you don't have to go searching for 'em). if you're saying you purchased the game and the wii shop is now telling you that you haven't, that sounds like something you'll need to call Ninty's customer service hotline about.

if you've bought something via the Wii Shop, you can re-download it as many times as you like for free.

Re: Scratched DS game.

theblackdragon

that's... odd. GameStop is supposed to test the games/systems they receive as trade-ins before they put them up for sale, so i'd take it back and show them it won't work in your DS. they've got a 14-day guarantee on used games anyway, iirc; hope you saved your receipt that shows the date of sale. :3
