I think the cartridges he was referring to was the old old... What was it, N64? Yeah, those games :D
 
I heard this yesterday from someone at work. If you try to connect your Wii to the internet, and download an upload, you might have problems with your console, and they will send you a new one for free.

And where Seth and I work, they have a new shipment of Wii's coming in for black friday. That just means that they are making as many as possible.

Though, I think that Sony, will for christmas, jack up the price of the PS3 to around $3,000. Who would pay that for a system only a little better than a PS2 (I might not have played it, but I stared at the graphics for one shift.)

Uh. Sony would have to be business-suicidal to want to make that price. I don't believe that, even for Sony! :D

You really can't complain about the price when it costs them $800 to manufacture the consoles.

and games will change in graphics, with every council.

i mean who remembers the first dang ps2 games?

also, if i remember correctly, the play station (first one) was a success due too them going over board with new technology, but they new they couldn't make games for shit, so they had try too get Nintendo too buy them.

Nintendo has attractive games, sony has power, 360 has....... the everything in between.

You must either be blind or delusional. She said around three GRAND, kiddo, not an extra 300 bucks, but three THOUSAND dollars per PS3.

All Wii's have that problem. They havn't released the Wiiconnect24 yet, or so I have been told. EVERYONE that I know has this problem. :eek:
 
Actually, it's possible. The 360 when it first came out, around christmas went up to around that price, and it sold. If people are desperate, then they will get it. Though it would go to rich moms and dads with spoiled kids. :S though that is a lot for a system

Nope, if you get an error after you connect, you have to call Nintendo and do one of the two:

1. Send them your Wii and they send you a new one
or
2. Give them a credit card number, then they send you a new one, and you have 21 days to send your old one back.

It's a bug with the firmware, a couple batches got screwed up.

I used to go here a lot.
The bug with some of the Wiis, that's what.

I can't believe how many people worship the PS3 and shun the Wii for being a stupid little kid's toy... I mean, aren't we all kids inside? :)

    that sucks
  • jonas jonas:
    @midnight8 how is it looking
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, me, wife and her friend thaty traveled with us all have covid, seems to be winding down some for me at least. Felt like complete shit, been sleeping a lot, just bieng lazy as hell. I feel like that today has probably been like 11 or 12 days since exposure. Have not had any fever today, and have not taken any meds, so hopefully by monday or tuesday I will be good to go, sadly have passed it on to our teen son, I guess that was pretty much unavoidable
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hope you get to feeling better and get vaccinated my friend
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I will at some point, but so many vaccinated people still getting it. One of the bands we watch in vegas, all 4 had been vaccinated and are now positive.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Symptoms?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think the symptoms are typically less severe if previously vaccinated.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
