We have an emergency! Let's do it 2 days from now!
nzk0  +   544d ago
haha, maybe it's a possible exploit or something...
Gamer1982  +   544d ago
Yeah how can you plan an emergency? Just silly...
PopRocks359  +   545d ago
Huh. Odd. Oh well, good to know in advance.

Hmm..Maybe All eShops unification??
GreenRanger  +   545d ago
Why wait until Monday if it's an emergency?
Heisenburger  +   545d ago
Haha right? Hmmm I'm guessing that maybe they are coming up with a game plan. Perhaps covering all the bases.

*shrugs*

maybe the emergency happened on Sunday ?

Open up the mind.

Don't want to pay overtime for working weekends?
rainslacker  +   544d ago
Maybe because they didn't have the updates ready? That would be my guess. Emergency is probably a bad word to use, gives a bad PR vibe.

I like how they add the "parenthesis" to emphasize the most negative aspect they can gleam from this. Real classy...

It's "quotation marks", not (parenthesis).

Also, why do people still act shocked about these lowbrow articles on N4G? Just don't click the article, rate it down and move on.

Well excuses me for making a typo. Sorry for not being god and giving an opinion that isn't to your liking.
rainslacker  +   544d ago
In this case it means that is the word that Nintendo used to describe it, so it is technically used correctly, and not necessarily for emphasis. Italics or bold face would be better suited for emphasis.

Also, not to be a grammar Nazi, but the way you used the quotation marks isn't right, as you are not referring to a previous quote.

@lilbroRx
wow. a typo is more like when you spell something wrong or a gramatical mistake. you straight out used the wrong word. he was just correcting you. thats a fact, not his opinion.

the second part is him just providing his opinion on the topic, nothing related to the correction he provided you. nothing from his comment gave the impression that your opinion was not to his liking.

your reply however gave the impression you're hypersensitive, especially about apologizing for not being god?

Well it looks like this time Nintendo is the one who is copying sony

*Basketball swooshes*

@PopRocks Eh, I though it was hilarious and pretty sure it was just a light hearted bit of fun , if you can't take the heat then just ignore or try and reduce me to 0.5 bubbles.

Eh, no dude. I see what you were trying to do there, but it wasn't that funny. Let's stop with the fanboy instigation, yeah?

EDIT: I have no intention of bubbling you down. I just don't see why it was necessary to bring Sony with such degree of snark. To me it just wasn't that funny, that's all. It's just going to anger people, I think.

Due to the alarming number of penis and ball drawings in Miiverse Nintendo has declared an emergency and will shut down online so they can delete all genitalia pictures.
r21  +   544d ago
I have to admit, that made me giggle :D
Sp1d3ynut  +   545d ago
This is something Nintendo has needed since 2006.
jakmckratos  +   545d ago
The 14 people who use Nintendo's online services are outraged.
Drainage  +   544d ago
at least its not a 2 month outage for security negligence
vork77  +   544d ago
skyward sword was pretty good but OOT is still the best
