    If you own either (or both!) of Nintendo's last-gen machines, and you use any kind of online service with them, now's the time to make the most of it. Because on May 20, Nintendo is pulling the plug.

    Here's the list:

    Sad news! I never really even played Mario Kart Wii enough online :( RIP Wii and DS, we hardly knew ye...

    At least I finally can play my collections instead of collecting.

    Really? So many games that I'm sure people still play on that list, especially Mario Kart, Brawl, and Pokemon

    Nintendo reeeeeally wants people to buy a WiiU.
    It's very surprising to see games like Pokemon X2/Y2 and Mario Kart wii on the list. Though I guess some wiiU Mario Kart must be coming out soon. Really it just seems like they want to shove everyone into the current gen by crippling last gen.
    Or I guess they're trying to stop SOME of the money bleeding.

    Brawl died near launch actually, because it was a god awful lagfest pile of crap. I pray they smarten up for the new SSB, because Online play would be amazing if they didn't screw it up like they did Brawl.

    Well, great thing about these is that the systems are hacked, so custom servers could be made. But the online Brawl community is gonna drop.

    I never could enjoy online Brawl, the lag on the servers made it unplayable for me :unsure:

    I actually play with a person from my own country and the lag IS bearable, it basically just depends on your and your opponents's internet connection, of course if you fight with someone from Japan you can expect a lot of lag.

    Wow--I mean, I always knew it would happen, but at the same time, it's so sad knowing Metroid Prime Hunters is always gonna be an empty, lonely, single player experience now :'(

    Well, Dolphin had made some strides with connecting to the Wii's online infrastructure--I wonder how easy it would be to dupe a fake system for the same purposes :o

    I just played brawl online, and played it for the first time ever, a few weeks ago, and I didnt really experience any lag. It felt and played just fine.

    But one quick question, will DLC for other games like Just Dance and others still be available?

    Hopefully some people start trying to preserve any content available through WFC.

    Picross 3D has a ton of puzzle packs available through WFC, for example. Jam with the Band has songs, but I'm pretty those have all been preserved. I'm sure there's countless other games with stuff like this that could be lost for good.

    I'm surprised Nintendo decided to axe Poekmon Black 2 and White 2 so early. They must be really desperate to push people toward Pokebank.

    The Wii and DS had online services to kill?

    I guess this is news in more ways than one.

  20. I played brawl online like once or twice and the lag killed the fun. Mario Kart Wii was fun online, but the matchmaking wasn't very good so I came first 99% of the time, got bored of it and quit. Its disappointing that Nintendo is shutting down the Pokemon servers; I never played any Pokemon online personally, but I imagine many others do.
