    I go on this forum everyday nearly, and all I see is disgruntled owners, when regarding the online system. Yes, friend codes suck, blah blah, I agree with that! Yet, what some fail to realise is that th upcoming UK release, Mario Strikers Charged, IS online, and IF MY ASSUMPTIONS ARE CORRECT, doesnt nee friend codes as it utilises a 'Leaderboard', surely that means you play users of dfferent abilities, not people in your friend list? Somebody please correct me if I am wrong, or back me if I am right, as I fail to see the fuss...

    Wow...mario srikers charged, that will keep me entertained for an hour! I want a good game that can keep me going for days online. Lik Mortal Kombat or Heatseeker...yet we have to settle for mario and pokemon, and they just wont mke it online, they're too old school and CAN be very childish. Wii isnt a childish system, it has great adult games coming up, so why not put them online?

    Ok, so what exactly is the downside to friends codes? I'm just not seeing it here. You dont really NEED them for any games that i've played on DS, unless you want to play against specific people you've met, which should be no hassle because you should already be exchanging info anyway if you know eachother well enough to plan matches in advance. Otherwise you can just connect and start playing against random people, still getting the full experience of online and without the friends codes.

    Maybe I'm just too easy going, but I really dont see what the problem is with friends codes...what's the big deal?

    I know right! People really need to chill. Europeans are going to eat Mario Strikers Charged like theres no tomorrow. I mean everyone knows they're obsessed with "football". Of course this is going to be a major hit and Online is going to put the Wii on a level never before experienced by ANY Nintendo console. The same can be said for Brawl when it finally comes out so I say have patience. ENJOY the great games that we have NOW and look with anticipation towards the future.

    Exactly, people need to read this and learn not to get so angry over minor problems

    I say online is going to stink, but thats just my opinion. We'll see how it turns out.

    yea i know what you mean, ive been trying to figure this out. you can still play online with leaderboards, the friend codes are just so we can talk and send eachother pictures and stuff, its not like its REQUIRED at all. actually i would rather have it than not have it, because either way the online will be the same, you will use leaderboards not friend codes (unless you want a specific person to play with). its like complaining about the peculiar taste of shreaded wheat (cereal) even though you aren't being told to eat it.

    First of all, you don't have to say "Football" , It is infact, called Football. I don't see why it needs to be Called Soccer.
    Second of all, i hate stereotypes. Not every bloody person in Europe is 'Obsessed' with football. I for one, hate the game!

    Yes, in the UK it is called football, but in Australia, it is called soccer because football is an entirely different sport. I wouldn't say i hate football/soccer, but I don't like it. I can't help but think though that because of it's larger following in EU and AU that that is why it is coming out as a PAL game before the US.
