I bought a Wii U (yeah, that was me...), and over several years spent far too much money on eShop purchases. It's not clear from this statement whether my downloads won't work anymore, but I expect that will happen eventually.

Nobody needs to feel too sad, though - USB Helper and WiiUDownloader offer ways to protect your purchases in perpetuity (and/or stick it to Nintendo for bailing on the Wii U after less than four-and-a-half years...).

I received an email from Ryan regarding my membership not long before he died. Not knowing what was coming, I deleted it - and I really wish that I hadn't.

It didn't contain anything profound. Something like, "Your membership will renew on [blah-blah...]". But still.

Remain in peace, Ryan.

I wonder to what extent this could inform a wider discussion of what constitutes a considered-"legitimate" experience.

In my teens, I played SNES and N64 games on 50Hz PAL consoles to a 14-inch CRT through a cheese-wire RF cable - a friend of mine whose parents had much more money played on imported, 60Hz consoles and a bigger, better TV with fancy inputs and premium interconnects. Even though I've accumulated an enviable collection of gaming and AV equipment as an adult, those memories burn with envy even now...

... one might consider this is a different question: but I suppose what I'm saying is, the passing of time isn't an essential requirement for asking whether two experiences of the same game are directly comparable.

@lordv: I’d forgotten about that Brothers In Arms title… that was a seriously good one.

I’d do what I do now, but less often. I like my job, and I earn well - but I need to work very hard to maintain the life I’ve built.

Balance is a work-in-progress.

Sad news.

I'm not altogether surprised. Last year's announcement, without ever using the word, seemed to suggest that Iwata had undergone treatment for cholangiocarcinoma - which, even among cancers, is a shit diagnosis.

Iwata dared to be different, and I will always love him for that. Rest in peace.

@theht: Yeah, I'd like that particular comment clarifying, also.
