    It's probably because the game doesn't come out(in the US) until Sunday.

    Exactly this. The store doesn't open until the game is released.

    Could be that but I'm wondering too. A lot of game I have been trying to find random people and it's very hard or just impossible

    Nintendo Wifi has always been a mess.

    Heck, its for free, so no surprise.

    Could wait till Sunday, if it isn't working by then, then we can conclude that its a blockout.

    Both of those games have always been pretty hard to find somebody to play with.

    Try Mario Kart.

    The Wi-Fi for this game will positively work on Sunday, but knowing Wi-Fi games being pirated it'll need a patch to work with Wi-Fi like Phantasy Star Zero does.

    The store was working for me the first couple days the game got dumped but I guess they closed it.

    The store was open for a few days but they must have figured there was a leak, and now they are leaving it closed till launch.

    Considering the game is officially out where I live in 25 minutes it should be going up soon.

    EDIT: The game is officially out where I live and shop still isn't online. Hopefully it'll be up in a few hours.

    It's been out for half a day, Pacific Time. I'm surprised they don't have it up yet.

    Yep, shop is open. Two games up and two 'featured' games by big names (creator of Kirby and creator of Metroid).
    One where you slash the items that reach a certain line and one where you shoot two Metroids.

    Theme contest is still closed though.

    Yep. Shop is open and working. I agree with Killermech, but the download content is meh. This is using an Acekard 2.i with Akaio 1.6RC2 on a DSi. Great game though.

    The appeal of the downloadable content, primarily, is to load them up in the editor and learn some of the mechanics they use.

    For example, the Slice game taught me an easy method to implement randomizers.

    But its so stupid because Nintendo, again, prevents people from just showing off and exchanging games... It makes the whole approach of DIY so utterly pointless. Let me randomly browse and rate other people's creation, for god's sake! That's what UCC games are about!

    When I'm on the ninsoft store it keeps saying download failed when I download a game. Why is that happening? I'm using AKAIO 1.6 RC2.
