    I believe there were issues with GameSpy's online service since they were sold, and since they ran Nintendo's WiFi service, that's why it's shutting down. I don't really think it's a case of Nintendo being "the new EA" or anything, but it's still really disappointing to see it shut down - especially since B/W 2 are just a year and a half old. Plus there won't be another Smash before at least the end of 2014, so competitive players and Project M players will be up the creek without a paddle.

    If you have any DS Professor Layton games, make sure you download all the daily puzzle to your cartridge by then!!


    Bye bye WFC I had fun playing Mario Kart DS when it first came out.
