    Y'all got until May 20th. Goodbye Brawl/Pokemon/Mario Kart matches on wi-fi.

    This will also mark the end of any Zero online play.

    Hmmm... I wonder if someone will find a way to tunnel local wireless games over the internet. That would be wild. I'm going to miss Gen IV/V Pokemon online mostly, and the occasional brawl match with some of my friends who don't live near me anymore.

    My question is, why the DS? Isn't it the same wireless as on the 2/3ds?

    No, it is not.

    Hopefully now the Dolphin guys can continue working on their own, superior netplay option instead of the trash heap NFC.

    I would seriously much prefer to play Brawl over fucking Kaillera than that laggy piece of shit official online.

    The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service is being shut down, that's what handled all online games for the Wii, DS and DSi.

    The service for the 3DS and WiiU is called Nintendo Network. Think of them as two separate online systems. You won't be able to use a 2DS or 3DS to get online with these games once the service shuts down in May.

    Crap, that sucks. Who wants to put together a list of games worth playing online before they shut down?

    I've never played Zero online before. I guess I better do so before I miss my chance!
