I really liked using the wii as a download station for DS demos. Problem was...the variety of Demos became few and far between.

I can still use the wifi of the wii to do a direct download to my DS of the game geometry wars. That is a 1-1 shot and does not require internet to happen.

So much like the original xbox, the games that offered online will be only half as valuable.

Metroid Prime: Hunters. So many memories.

When all online services are shot down for a mp focused game. How will anyone relive it?

That is why I favour single player games a lot more.

Never played it, but MGO in MGS4 was great.

I didn't even know it existed until a month ago. Didn't have the right version of the game I guess

well mario kart has hackers, and smash brothers and the extreme lag
SpiralTear  +   296d ago
Man, Jump Ultimate Stars was crazy good online. It was as close to handheld Smash Brothers that we've gotten thus far.
princejb134  +   296d ago
Lol used to play that for hours
Used to go into forums just to find new good people to play with
Neo Nugget  +   296d ago
Freaking loved the Phantom Hourglass online play (at least when people didn't rage quit).
John Kratos  +   296d ago
What does this mean for the PokeBank app? I downloaded it but haven't used it yet.
Summons75  +   296d ago
That won't be affected. That's a 3ds app, it reads the cart then connects it to a server for 3ds. You can't use the pokemon app on the Ds.
