Actually, I should mention my battletag, too.

Battletag: Falcio#1583

Join WoW and see how horrifying my collection of things is.

I just got my own Steam account. My tag is (surprise) Pikmanipulator.

EDIT: Er, no it's not, actually. It's metamo_star.

If I remember correctly, you might need to buy a game before you can accept gifts? Which isn't too much of a problem since some games are less than a dollar.

Image Guess there won't be much of a point for the Wii and DS codes come May 20th...

Mayhaps a title change is in order? Sure, 3DS still uses a code but...

Image Just a reminder: In a week's time (May 20th), the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will be taken down due to GameSpy's services closing, so tags for Wii and DS games will be useless then. Any last minute things you want to do, do it now.

Image And now...it's down.

I hope everyone got the most out of Nintendo's WFC, because we can no longer use it, save for things like the store and browser (Poké-Transporter should be unaffected too).

Friend codes for Ninty titles are now officially useless here.

They weren't very useful to begin with since most of the games were laggy, but regardless, it is the end of an era.

Though apperantly some people figured out how to make dedicated servers for certain games like Smash Bros, but you have to erase your save data to use it.

I honestly don't get the point in doing this well before Smash 4's release. Though it is a shame since I missed out on a trade in 5th gen I intended to get around to (for a Regenerator Ho-oh) and cause I wanted to get some practice with a guy I know for Brawl.

McKnackus is right though, but hopefully this isn't really the case anymore. Especially because I still have yet to get around to beating Pokemon X and playing on Wifi, I've only done a few trades and the system works decently.

Oh no. This isn't entirely for Smash 4, though Smash was one of the biggest WFC communities. Mario Kart 8 comes out in a week. Mario Kart Wii's WFC community is hueg. Telling them all, "Yo. For real tho. Buy a Wii U and play the new one," will probably get a lot of units sold, even if Mario Kart 8 was going to sell a !#%$ already.

They probably run traffic analytics on the servers as well, and may have figured that the cost of keeping them up wasn't worth the number of people using them. IDK.

Image Now, keep in mind that this wasn't really an abrupt decision by Nintendo. It really all had to do with GameSpy shutting down. So that was a little out of their hands.

As an aside, I may have jumped the gun a bit. While first-party titles are definitely out, I have heard reports of certain third-party titles still going, perhaps due to them running on servers outside of GameSpy. I've heard reports of Goldeneye, Call of Duty, and even the Conduit 2 working, but I can't test this myself.

It isn't just Nintendo that used the service either. Certain games, like Borderlands and GTAIV, also used GameSpy and its closure has put those multiplayer experiences down as well.

Oddly enough, I apparently never added the 3DS code on here, so here.

2020-0158-5609

Nintendo Network is Falcon6x3, as well.

You actually did. It's just that DoM never updates the first post anymore.

I thought that Falcon, Raxy or elby edited the first post at some point actually, I just know DoM indeed doesn't update it anymore.

Image And this here is why I posted this confession so long ago. Almost tempted to restart with a brighter, better thread since I know people trust me to keep up to date, but I feel like that might be stepping on too many toes there.

Heck, I'm still waiting for the first post to get updated on this thread too. Goes to show not even our own moderators care to update, as FSLAR had thought.
