Worst feeling while playing? Knowing that you are about to finish a high quality title that you don't want to end.

If you can't just replay the game and have just as much fun, maybe it wasn't such a high-quality title after all?

Once you know how the story ends, though... it's fun to replay, certainly, but you already know how it ends now. That same feeling of suspense is still there in the next playthrough, but it's never quite the same as the first time you ever beat the game, y'know?

@Wildvine53: it depends on what area of the US you live in whether or not your points will be taxed directly from the Wii/DSi Shop as well. that's why they ask for state/county information along with your credit card info, so that they know which taxes are required depending on the person making the purchase from where. that was another reason i was purchasing my points through the Shops instead of actually going to the store, but it's moot now that NC has passed whatever tax laws on internet purchases or whatev'. :/

i dunno if it's true where you're at, but you can't find 1000 point cards around here, which is the denomination of points i usually like to purchase (no sense buying too much when i don't need it, and it's not like i'm getting some kind of discount for buying in bulk or anything). therefore, i usually just buy via the Wii/DSi Shop.

@LinktotheFuture: you want to make absolutely sure the SD card's data has been corrupted before reformatting. Sometimes just ejecting and re-inserting the card can make the computer recognize it again, or trying it in a different computer or card reader may make the data suddenly readable as well.

that said, yes, reformatting will make your SD card useable again should it really be corrupted. :3

The only thing Nintendo is out is the tiny bit of band width it takes to host and deliver the game but until it sells enough, the developers don't see a dime. Why even mess with trying to put your game out there on their service? This is just the same thing they did to third parties back in the NES days for the new generation.

poor, poor innocent developers, never had a clue what Nintendo was going to do to them, never had any idea they wouldn't get paid until their games sold a certain amount of downloads, boo-hoo... oh, wait, no, they had to have signed a contract. seriously, if they were told up-front how the payment system was going to work, it sucks, but them's the breaks. it's like gambling or any other kind of risk -- you pays your money and you takes your chances.

Nintendo's not stealing if the developers agreed to their terms before release

The developers absolutely had to have agreed to these things before release; there's no way Ninty wouldn't have had them sign a contract on it before any money for a development kit changed hands. With WiiWare/DSiWare, companies were fighting for the chance to develop for it if i remember correctly, and surely if they didn't like the terms, they were free to develop for other consoles/services instead. WiiWare sounds like something that's going to pay off over time -- no instant gratification for developers -- so if a game still isn't profitable after a couple of years, it's time for the developers to look at whatever feedback they received on their game, professional and unprofessional alike, and figure out where they went wrong.
