Pending shutdown for Wii and DS servers highlights need for more player control.
I was, yes, trying to find out the implications of this shutdown - alerted to by waywardbiro - for Pokemon games (answer: non-local trading and battling is over, but transfer is fine if you have 2 machines) - anyway this is a good piece, talking about preservation issues etc. which I know some of you are interested in.
fuck, i only re-bought a wii a couple of months ago almost specifically for online mariokart play :(
i just hope some enterprising geeks come up with a warp pipe style substitute for it…
THE DAILY MAIL IS EVIL AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. if you are in any sort of doubt about this, and think “it’s not so bad, i dont know why people get so wound up about it”, watch this. it’s 20 minutes long, but should hopefully make you realise what ABSOLUTE FUCKING SCUM they are.
