Just an idea here ... and really just for fun ... and I know everyone here doesn't believe in Santa...it is just the name of the game... but here goes:

Members of GBAtemp who we all know and love ... sign on and say they are down to give and receive a Wii virtual console game.
Somehow we raffle off everyone's name so each person then knows who they are buying the Wii gift for. The receiver can not choose a game...its is solely up to the giver of the gift... Just and idea here...I feel in the giving mood and thought it might be fun...

I think that is the fun of "Mystery Santa" ... I mean personally someone like Amptor would probably want SMB3 over Pokemon Snap ... so a 5 bucker would make him happy ... however had he gotten the game Pokemon snap...well then he might try a gem he never would have otherwise...then again does anyone know the rules on gift giving via the wii.... can I (in the USA) send Costello (in Europe) a gift? And what happens if I send someone a game they already have? Money lost or does it say "User already has the game?"

Again it was just an idea... I mean some of us have been here for years...coulda been fun

can't do multi region gifts, that is usa to europe and vice versa - shitty I know but that's what nintendo have stipulated

don't know about the rest of it though, such as if they have the game already and what not.

good idea but may be difficult to execute

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
