DesorbRest in peace to those who passed away in this morning’s MH370 Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, crashing into the Vietnamese ocean. 239 passengers and crew, 14 different nationalities. To think that I flew on the exact same plane a year ago shakes me. Imagine the heartbreak of those waiting at the airport terminal, to find out the flight has been ‘removed’ from the arrivals list. A personal nightmare of mine.

Someone probably already posted this but hey, here’s the official announcement from the Nintendo website.
“As of May 20, 2014, certain online functionality offered through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will no longer be accessible. The discontinued services include online play, matchmaking and leaderboards for many Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games. For a comprehensive list of games and services that are affected, please check [link] Users can still play the games in offline mode, which continues to offer a rich game-play experience.
Online play for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games will be unaffected (aside from the Wii mode on Wii U and Nintendo DS games on Nintendo 3DS family systems). Other online functionality, such as access to the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop and video-on-demand services, are also not affected at this time.
We at Nintendo sincerely thank our fans for their continued support of our company’s legacy systems. Your enthusiasm for games made for these systems speaks to their longevity, and the passion of Nintendo fans.”
What this basically means is that Nintendo WiFi is shutting down service for all Nintendo DS/DSi/Wii games on May 20th, although the online shops and video on demand services are not shutting down at this time. (Note that this change affects the games/software not the consoles, so even if you try to play the older games on the newer consoles: 3DS and WiiU, the online capabilities will not work.) Nintendo have also stated that Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter will remain unaffected.
So, just to clarify for my fellow Pokemaniacs, As of May 20th 2014, we can only perform online trades with Pokemon X Version, Pokemon Y Version, Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter. This will not affect wireless trading/Pal Park/Poke Transfer etc.
…and no more online Brawl matches…
This, in my opinion, is a monumentally stupid idea…
(Note that the list at the bottom of the above webpage is not updated. The one on the support page is.)
