Bon Voyage Old Friend!
It's been five long years since Nintendo's foray into social media, Miiverse launched on Wii U and it has since ballooned into a massive hit especially after the app was added to the 3DS, and though several restrictions added since 2015 have severely hampered the service, it is still going surprisingly strong in its twilight days leading up to its closure in less than two weeks. What does this mean for you? Well even if you don't use the app if you own a Wii U you will no longer be able to add friends to your friends list, this also means that you'll be unable to make new friends and send in-game PM's in games such as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate as well. Basically it will mean that you'll have to make due with any current friends on your list for online experiences so I suggest you don't remove anyone from your list if you plan on having any online gaming sessions on your Wii U in the future.
The 3DS is safe from this issue, since its friends list is tied to your handheld's friend code instead of Miiverse. Once Miiverse closes this will also render the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS completely useless which is another major reason why important offline available content shouldn't be tied to features that will be removed in the twilight years of a console. This is just the tip of the ice berg though as nearly 115 Wii U games feature Miiverse support within the game itself such as Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD / Breath of The Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors, New Super Mario/Luigi U, Shovel Knight, etc, etc. All of these games and many, many more will have very cool and unique features stipped from them upon Miiverse's closure which is definitely going to hurt the enjoyment factor of the games, but in some more serious cases will make some content impossible to obtain "I'm looking at you Xenoblade Chronicles X". Yes that's right, the two raid bosses in Xenoblade Chronicles X and their exclusive materials will be lost upon Miiverse's closure which will prevent players from creating a couple of the most powerful Skells in the game as well as some of the best weapons in each job class.
Regardless of the major flaws and drawbacks regarding the closure of Miiverse the social media experience it provided was one of the most unique and intriguing I have ever experienced and the colorful personalities of its myriad of members always put a smile on my face. One of the greatest things about Miiverse was that it was a gathering place of many highly talented and aspiring artists and the beauty of the art graced almost every member's timeline! There were plenty of hilarious moments such as the discovery of the aptly named Luigi Death Stare in Mario Kart 8, the creation of the facepalm-worthy meme character Bigley, and who can forget the annoyed developers talking smack about Nintendo's sudden announcement that Miiverse was going to be closing in November? Bottom line Miiverse was unique and incredible in so many ways and will be missed by our crew.
Anyways be sure to tell us about your thoughts about and past experiences you've had with Miiverse in our comments section below!

Nothing Lasts Forever...
Hey there my fellow Nintendo gamers and nerds, Bre here with a tiny bit of news for you. Nintendo is sending out a reminder to all gamers that a service change is planned for the DSi shop. As of September 30 5pm PT/8pm ET, you will no longer be able to add DSi points to your account anymore.
This comes ahead of time of the DSi shop being shut down very soon, in fact that exact date is March 31, 2017. Those of you with points left on your DSi shop account I advise using them up quick before they’re gone. RIP DSi shop we shall miss you.

Hey there PlayStation gamers, Bre here with one last update for you today. The last one involves two of the well known up and coming systems and their makers. The Xbox One and the PS4 made by Microsoft and Sony. Microsoft or Xbox recently changed its standings on co-op play between two systems, saying now that they are all for it. In fact they put Sony on the spot themselves, by calling them out saying that they were all prepared to work together. This feature is to debut soon with a game called “Rocket League”.
Computer and gaming with Sony have always been a thing, but now they are taking it the next level pairing two big gaming systems together via one game. Though we somewhat think that maybe Sony is having their hand twisted a bit, by a certain other game company but we can’t confirm this either. I guess we just got to wait and see how this one works out, and what will come of this with time.
