Has anybody played a DS game on the Wii U? Judging by the screenshots they provide on the eShop it looks so miniscule since they have to squeeze in two screens into one and I don't know if it's worth buying them.  :o

I believe there's several display options and it works quite well.

I never have, but I would think it would make more sense to use the gamepad as 1 of the screens and the T.V. as the other.

And nothing of value was lost.

[...] It's just now occurring to me the importance of backing up as many games as possible onto external storage because at some point, there will be no access to important patches directly through the consoles.

This is something that has been discussed at tedium, and now it "just occurs to you"? Brilliant.

I can't think about a Nintendo console that don't become better after hacking it...

Too true.

This certainly open the question if Switch is going to the same path after the next Nintendo console is out, I wish Nintendo would take Microsoft idea and just make sure from Switch to future consoles everything will be a same platform.

Of course it's going to happen to the Switch, and to the next console after it, and maybe the next; this is Nintendo we're talking about here, they're as dense as their ancient business model.

By now we all know that the digital age is a fickle one, so I don't know why people get surprised when shit like this happens.

I'm not really into Mega Man Battle Network, but top-notch on the rest.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for the Battle Network games even though they're far from perfect  ;D And of course the physical cartridge is about $75 now...

The soundtracks for the Battle Network and Star Force games are good, so I can give them that.
