It's time for another official NWR WiFi night. It's happening next week and let's start things out as usual with a poll for which day we play.

We are implementing the "Can't do the same thing twice" rule this month for both day and game, so you will notice that Friday is not an option in this poll.

Voting will end at some point Thursday morning.


This is also the game nomination thread, so throw your desired games up in here.


Sorry this is happening the second week of March and not the first.

I nominate Bomberman Blast.

Just so everyone knows, there are only two evenings I'm available next week so I may not be able to participate. :(

Well, since others have nominated Mario Kart Wii, Bomberman Blast, and Battalion Wars II, then I'm going to toss out Mario Strikers Charged as my nomination.

Why do you guys even bother nominating games?  You know either Smash Bros, Mario Kart, or (maybe) Animal Crossing is going to win.

We really need to figure out a better way of doing this.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Campaigning to get people to vote for different games seems like a good approach to me.

I really think Bomberman Blast could be a great change of pace and I think everyone should vote for it? Unless you like being boring and dull. =P

I'm all for Bomberman Blast.  It got a significant number of votes the first time we did one of these, but it's sucked up ever since then.

After Smash Bros. won AGAIN last time (why it won when the online play lags so much that it's impossible to get a decent match), I think a rule was made that a game can't win two times in a row. So It won't be Brawl again.

No, it'll alternate between Brawl and Kart.

What i don't understand is if everyone hates this so much, why does it still win the voting?

The online play wasn't bad when it first launched. During the first month after release I played dozens of games and had lag in maybe 10% of them. When I got online access again back in December, I tried playing online Brawl again and couldn't play even 1 game due to lag (the entire match was nothing but lag and made it unplayable). Not sure how it managed to get worse in 8 months.

BTW, in the last vote I went with Animal Crossing: City Folk. Brawl is my favorite Wii game, but I refuse to play it online or support it in these votes until Nintendo fixes the lag (or at least return it to its March levels when you only had lag once in a while).

I don't hate it.  I think it's fan-fucking-tastic.  Yes, it has its fair share of problems.  But it's still Brawl.

Oh, the "it" i meant was just the possibility of playing the same game over again, not the game itself.

Oh god, it wasn't to "its" it was an 'it' and a 'this'...

So I change my mind, I did word that sentence alright... this meant the repetition of games.

Hurray for poor reading! =P
