    any way. I would say i can take a put down and i don't mind trash talk. it's all part of the fun in some games.
    but last week, i was playing cod4 online at my friends house, and i happen to be pretty good at it. None the less there were these two guys who i take it were upset by that fact, and would not let off with the rascist comments. What made it worse though, was that they were putting down the wrong race and just making idiots out of themselves.

    now i'm not a baby or anything. I just would prefer to be able to avoid ignorance when trying to have fun. i'd rather not be called by racial slurrs whenever playing a competitive game.

    this being said, i'm pretty sure there is a feature on the 360 that could have blocked their voice from being heard through the headset. but I wouldn't really know.

    As for friend codes, i don't find it so difficult because i have quite a few friends that have the wii, and we all typically by the same games. and to be frank, i'd much rather here trash talk from my buddies, than from someone i have no idea who they are and whether they are being serious or not..

    sorry for the rant, it was the first time I really faced racism while playing online. know what i mean?

    well i think its all a part of online experience. the reason i am not affected by it is because i am not affected by what people think of me. i am successful in life because of this. if others dont like racial stuff, they can just choose not to use a mic. its as simple as that.

    that's true
    it's just sad that it's come to that ya know?
    what if a kid wants to play online and talk to his buddies
    they would have to deal with that
    i think that's why nintendo enforced friend codes

    that being said, maybe there should be an option within the wii menu that give you the choice to talk to strangers and friends
    or just friends
    lol wow i sound like a parent

    I dislike friend codes because they cater to people who know others with wii's who buy games. My friends who own wiis are very casual and don't really play it much. When playing wifi with random strangers, friend codes are merely a nuisance.

    In any case, I find nintendo supporters are generally easier to get a long with and more mature.

    nintendo (back when they had their official forums) use to let pokemon diamond/pearl owners exchange friend codes

    they could/should open the forums back up and let wii and ds owners exchange friend codes

    Its still such a painful hassle. I entered 25-30 endless ocean friend codes by hand and only ended up playing with two people. Waste of time and energy and simply unnecessary when you can't even really communicate what is the point.

    I'm fine with friend codes too. I feel they're basically on par with entering new numbers into your mobile phone.

    You know Indians generally are of the Hindu faith right?

    To be honest, it happens everyday, to everyone. Life moves on.

    Same way I feel.
    It takes little to no time to add a few numbers, then the playing time is endless.
    Its worth it.

    true but rather than compare it to cell phone, why cant we compare it to other consoles which does same thing (ie play online) but does it more efficiently and is user friendly. Just imagine what could have been if Nintendo was a little bit wiser.

    Well theres really no sense in comparing it to other consoles, the Wii is nothing like the other consoles in almost every area. Take their online play and strategy that goes with it, different approaches again. You either like or you don't, and keep in mind Online Play has just recently knocked on Nintendo's door. They have let it inside, but it may take a bit for them to share a meal and have dessert. Meaning things need to be worked out, but the way it is now is still suffice in most peoples (mine) eyes.

    perhaps u misunderstood me. what i meant was that u said that adding fcs was like putting numbers into cellphone. but wii is a gaming console. woudnt u rather compare it with another gaming console. and fcs have been getting rather hate these days. woudnt u agree?

    ps u have made me hungry with your talks of dessert and meals.i hope our conversation doesnt turn into a flame war.:scared:

    thats how i feel as well.

    you pretty much just have to know who you're adding. cant just add anyone cuz half the ppl dont play consistent enough or are just never online.

    but i do think all games should have friend codes and random play with anyone. like mario kart does, and advance wars.
