Nintendo’s wifi offerings were always the black sheep of the console bunch.  Unreliable connections, limited features, and bizarre options for DLC gained the service poor favor, at least for Wii owners– the DS wifi fared much better, admittedly.  No matter how you feel about it though, Nintendo is giving the services the axe this May. Servers and services that use Nintendo Wifi Connection will no longer be supported after May 20th.  This means no more Brawl or Mario Kart DS online play and devices [...]

I even scared myself with how well some of these fit. Here are some of the crazy connections I made in my mind on hit songs that were probably actually totally written by [...]

Mario Party: Island Tour Review – The Only No-Cover, All-Ages Event Worth Going To
