    1. Why’d they have to close the servers?oh, wait, it’s nintendo and their anti-online shit, i almost forgot, good thing they have internet in their offices, little kids could be in grave danger, they better pull the plug on mario kart 8 before someone bumps into some kid online, shit like that at is known as sexual assault to nintendo people

      1. It’s because GameSpy’s servers are closing down on the 30th. All Wii and DS game servers are powered by GameSpy.

  1. Nooooooo…. Well, at least it was fun while it lasted. Good thing MK8 will replace MK Wii and SSB will replace Brawl for online :’)

  2. The only pity is Mario Kart Wii, which gets replaced by Mario Kart 8 in only 10 days. Due to the slowdowns while playing, Brawl never worked in a way that was fun, so I have no regrets for that game. I’m absolutely fine with this! Just gonna have my last Mario Kart Wii online-match now ;-)

  3. R.I.P. DS/Wii Wi-Fi 2004-2014

    Ten years of great service for Nintendo fans internationally and it’s time for us to move on to other platforms that need more attention (Wii U included).

  4. I’ll miss being able to play GoldenEye and Pokémon B/W 2 online. But hopefully now Nintendo can fully focus on the Wii U and 3DS’s online features.

  5. This is more than just some online stuff shutting down, it’s the end of the Wii and DS generation, the one that invited millions of people like me in to the world of gaming. Consumed most of my time and money the last six years and was the best thing I ever asked for my birthday.

    Good bye Wii and may the Wii U be the same success you were for me.

  6. After doing some last minute genning in gen 5 Pokemon for XY and reading a message saying that the online service was discontinued at 10 am, it’s sad to see the wifi close after 10 years.
    It felt like yesterday that I played Mario Kart DS and Pokemon Diamond online, but now, it’s on to bigger and better things with 3DS and Wii U’s wifi. I wonder how it’ll play out when the online for both are eventually shut down.

  7. Has it already been shut down? I just got home and wanted to play Mario Kart Wii online for one last time but won’t let me

  8. With these commands entered, you should have
    created a directory called ‘halflife’ and opened it. If you
    are ready to buy a computer and configure it into a personal server, the following elements
    may be helpful for your reference. ” The company did confirm that some of the video games that will be affected, such as “GTA
    4” and “Red Dead Redemption,” are going to be patched in the future.
