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

@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.

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.

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

AuthorRe: Why is reviving old threads a bad thing?
AvatarAdmin

theblackdragon

9,949. Posted:

Rule of Thumb:

  • if the topic was controversial and somehow managed to die out on its own without being locked (another xbox vs. ps3 thread, for example, or something about politics or religion), don't revive
  • if the topic was dated somehow (a topic with someone asking for urgent advice seven months ago, for instance), don't revive
  • if all you have to add is 'me too', 'i agree', some other lame response, or something completely irrelevant to the topic at hand, don't revive
  • if you have something interesting and (most importantly) relevant to add to the topic at hand, go for it (if you want to)

i think the idea that we don't like people reviving old threads came about gradually because most of the time when an old thread is revived, it's either controversial or nothing of interest is added -- stuff like 'that's cool' or 'wow this thread is old', which gets deleted. however, that belief is pretty incongruous with practice, as we generally lock duplicate threads and refer the original posters to slightly older threads (though i personally let the new thread live if the older ones are like five months old) all the time.

anyway, as always, we review things on a case-by-case basis. there is no need to flip out in chat or report someone just for reviving an old thread, though if someone's revived sixteen threads from the dawn of NL just to say 'cool' in all of them, sure, we'd like to know about it. :3

long story short: reviving old threads isn't necessarily a bad thing.
