Virtual Console/WiiWare Secret Santa 2011: DONE! Any tips/thoughs for next year?

Welcome to the Virtual Console / WiiWare Secret Santa 2011 thread!

(Fortunately for you, I am not Div.)
********************************************************************************************


Soon the Great Assigning will begin. Keep an eye on your PM boxes as your Santa/Santee info will be sent sometime in the near future.

********************************************************************************************


Welcome to the FIFTH (?!) annual Virtual Console Secret Santa Thread. Thanks to the "Gift" function on the Nintendo Wii's Shop Channel, it is possible to send other Wii owners classic games from consoles of yore, as well as new games created specifically for Wii Ware. Best of all, it means we can get our Secret Santa on!

The process is easy. In a nutshell... first, everyone who is interested in participating joins up and throws their name into the virtual christmas hat. I then will draw names at random for all participants, matching up Santas with Santees. Gifting ensues.
********************************************************************************************


OFFICIAL RULES OF ENTRY AND PARTICIPATION (MUST READ):

Important stuff!

Two rules which must be obeyed at all times: Wheaton's Law, and Gabe's PA Ping Pong Rule #6

If you can't check the links, these two rules are summarized here:
- "Don't be a dick".
- "Players must bring their A game. We will not allow any weak shit in our house. If someone is caught bringing weak shit we will exclaim in a very loud voice “Yo, why you bring that weak shit up in my house!”"

This is how you bring your "A" game.
********************************************************************************************

GROUND RULES:

I am not going to accept anyone with a forum join date later than November 1st 2011. This is to prevent abuse of the Virtual Console Secret Santa program. Sorry, but there is always the risk that someone will join up only to receive a gift without any intention of ever giving one.

SUGGESTED Gift Value: 1000 Wii Points. No one is going to hunt you down if you decide to give MORE than 1000 Wii Points worth of Virtual Console games, but there is NO requirement of ANYONE to spend more than 1000 Wii Points. This is to ensure EVERYONE has the budget to participate. If you go nuts and buy your Santee every N64 game on the service, and you only get an NES game from your Santa, tough cookies!

Gifts are Country Locked. For whatever reason, Nintendo has restricted the Gift feature to people who live within the same country. This means your Santa and Santee will be forumers who live in the same country as you. This is why you must post what country you live in (More on that in a moment). Don't sweat it, I will match people up based on country so there are no problems. Unfortunately, if only 1 person from a particular country participates, that person will not be able to participate. Sorry, but there isn't much I can do about that.

This thread IS mod approved, and by that, I mean I PM'ed a mod asking if I could do this, and I still haven't heard back yet. The way I see it, no response = no objection. HOWEVER, it is not their problem if you get ripped off by some turd burglar who doesn't send out a gift. Sorry, but thems the terms. This is just one more reason I'm encouraging a spending cap of 1000 Wii Points. LET IT BE KNOWN that if you gift something that costs 0 points such as the news or weather channel or the WiiWare demos, you will be considered a deadbeat santa and beatings will ensue. (Please note that if you wish to send these 0 Points items in addition to your gift to your Santee, you are more than welcome to do so.)
If you are okay with all of the above, then here is.....

********************************************************************************************

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:


Step 1: Ensure your Wii is capable of accessing the Wii Shop Channel

This is one of those no-brainer rules. If you can't handle this, don't bother signing up. The last thing we need is someone going "Um, I can't connect to the Wii Shop Channel, and I don't know why." at the last minute because that would suck. It would also break the first two rules that must be obeyed at all times.

Step 2: Sign-up

Everyone that wishes to participate MUST post the following information AS SHOWN IN THE QUOTE BELOW:
ADD ME!
Username / Wii Message Board Code / Country / Available Controllers
(Just copy the quote code if you have to!)

These things are very important, and if you do not post all of the required information then you are not participating.

Any additional information you wish to post, put it in a spoiler. Other helpful information includes what games you already have, what games you would like to have, what games you don't want, and how many points you're willing to spend. It will also serve as a nice guide to your Secret Santa as to what kinds of games you like!


Step 3: Fill up your Wii Address Book

This is where I'm going to have to ask for a little bit of extra work from the Santas, but nothing you can't handle. You will notice at the bottom of this OP is the "Grand List of Secret Santas". It is here where I will collect all the information of those who wish to participate. What ALL SANTAS MUST DO at the end of registration is to ADD YOUR FELLOW SANTAS IN YOUR COUNTRY BY THE DEADLINE STATED BELOW. I will be giving you only the Wii number to whom you send a gift by PM. This way you will not know who your Santa is (at least not easily) until you receive your gift, and if there is a problem, it can be worked out discreetly. By having everyone fill in all Santas Wii Message Board Codes, if a Santa were to post that they can't participate after the deadline has passed, it will take minimal effort to fix the problem. And besides, if you participated last year, you should still have all of the codes from last year still in your list.

If you're not sure how to use the Wii Address Book or even find your Wii Message Board Code, here's two sets of instructions to help educate you.

Quick set of instructions: Watch this video, starting at the Wii Main Menu. (I'm not sure why there is something involving the Mii Channel at the beginning, because that doesn't matter.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WIUVhlcZSM


Long and detailed set of instructions: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/messageBoard.jsp#accessAddressBook

Step 4: Fill up your Wii Shop Account with Nintendo Points

Because you can't send gifts without those Nintendo Points!


Step 5: Congratulations!

You are now ready to be one secretly jolly S.O.B.! How does it feel?
********************************************************************************************

DEADLINES

December 16 at 11:59pm Eastern Time: Deadline to Enter. You must post with your correct information BY THIS DATE AND TIME.

December 17-19: Last chance to register all fellow Santas in your country as listed in the Grand List.

December 19-20*: You will receive the Wii Message Board Code to which you will play Santa and give a gift to that 16 digit number.

January 3: Your Santee must receive his or her gift by this date. I'm extending it to January 2 because if you can't get your gift out by Christmas, I think it would still be cool to send it for New Years. How cool would it be to wake up to a new year to find out your Wii is glowing with a gifted game?

After January 3: I analyze the thread to find out who sent/received their gifts and PM those involved where there are discrepancies. Basically, I find out what's up. (They could have sent/received their gift and just not posted about it, as an example.)

January 10: Deadbeat Santas (if any) are announced.

*December 20 deadline isn't set in stone, but it is what I'm aiming for.
********************************************************************************************
Other Important Stuff

Don't complain about who you got for a Santee! Further, don't complain about what your Santa got for you!

If there are any problems, let me know ASAP! PM'ing me is probably best.

I will be linking this thread to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection thread OP, just like I did last year, just in case something strange happens and no one can find it.

The most important rule: HAVE FUN!
********************************************************************************************


I will be updating the Grand List as often as I can, so hopefully nightly(ish). If you want to be extra sure I get your info, PM me.

This all worked out fantastically last year, with no deadbeat santas and nothing but happy gamers all around. Lets make it a 4 year perfect streak!

The rest of this thread may be used to discuss, post what games you have, etc.

Do know that simply posting "I'm in!" doesn't grant you entry. If you've read this far, you already know how to enter, so there's no excuse.

Now let's get festive as shit!

    Oh I read it, the Wii isn't here right now so I couldn't do the official signing up with the colors and such. Plus like any thread it takes a few posts to get it rolling and noticed. Lots of people do not like posting in an empty thread for some reason!

    Anyways people, this is the Wii's last hurrah. Wiiware has some hidden gems and all, but the VC is absolutely tremendous. With fans of pasts consoles of all persuasions posting on these forums you can get some wonderful games that you've never even heard about. Yes, even on Sega consoles!

    "Wii's last hurrah"

    AFAIC, as long as the Wii can still be allowed access to the Wii Shop Channel after Wii U is released, unless I'm going to be the only one on this board who will continue to own their Wii and not buy a Wii U, I don't see why this can't keep going into next year.

    Of course, if next year this will be based on Wii U, then that will mean someone else will have to take over.

    "maybe we should reconfigure this to be part of Steam or 3DS virtual console then MAYBE I'd..."

    Can you even gift on the 3DS?

    No you can't gift with the 3DS yet.

    It's the last hurrah for the Wii because it is being replaced next year. I'm pretty sure the VC will make it over wholesale and they'll just add some new systems to the list so I doubt we'd even miss a beat.

    I don't know why it might be a bad idea to post in there. If people are in the mood to give the way they are, adding in some Wii Points shouldn't be much of a financial burden. Give it a shot.

    If it helps you sell the idea, the spending rarely goes over 2000 points.


    Looking at Wikipedia, these are the new virtual console games released in 2011:

    S.C.A.T.

    Also I had a Canadian SS the last time I did it, and was able to switch my region to Canada and gift him a game... Then switch back. Is that not allowed anymore?

    I've heard that if you change your console region, it dumps all of the points you have on your account and you can't get them back. Not sure if it's true or not.

    To be fair, I simply just copy/pasted last year's thread. I could double check that scheduling to see how it works out this year, though I don't know if it'd work out in your favour.

    Okay! After looking at how Dec 2010 and Dec 2011 differ, December deadline days are one day sooner, with gift-giving ending January 3 (one day later). Does that still work out for everyone?

    Yeah I think I could make that happen, or maybe I could just get a Santee sooner. I don't need to receive my gift early, I just didn't want anyone waiting on me!

    I'll my official sign up in a bit. Thanks!

You can probably tell by my list that I pretty much own everything worth owning on the Wii for their downloadable stuff, but I bet you can prove me wrong. Happy Gifting!

    The one thing I've noticed is that occasionaly, while playing, bits of food that I've previously eaten seem to be coming back up into my mouth, but a bib solved that quickly enough.

    Still gotta get some points. Think I missed any possible sales though.

    Niceguyeddie616, uh, can you do me a favour and edit that list into your "ADD ME" post? That's why I'm linking to all of those in the OP. It's so that whoever you get to be your Santee, you can quickly get linked to their all of their info. Code/controllers/games, all in one convenient spot.

    That goes for the rest of you! Just edit your "ADD ME" post when you add your games list. Posting to say "Ok, I added what games I have" is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged. (Keeps this thread on the first page, after all. ;) )

    I've heard that if you change your console region, it dumps all of the points you have on your account and you can't get them back. Not sure if it's true or not.

    From what I can recall, that is true. However, I have heard of people switching from Canada to US (or vice versa) and back without a problem (perhaps because of how similar in region they are), BUT I don't want to end up being wrong on that and cause something bad to someone. I don't want to risk someone getting a "Merry Christmas! Your shit is now fucked!" experience because they decided to be in the spirit of giving a little more than usual by being a part of this. I'd rather err on the side of caution, especially this far into the Wii's life with game lists as big as they are being shown here.

    Things to note about me:

    I own absolutely nothing in WiiWare(except MLAAK). I love RPGs and games with RPG mechanics. I own a LOT of games for the VC... If it has Mario I have it (LOVED Mario RPG). I have most of the first party Nintendo VC games. I didn't own a Genesis as a kid, but played most of the first party games on it.

    Quick list that I can come up with:
    Phantasy Star IV, Phantasy Star, Shining in the Darkness, Beyond Oasis, Secret of Mana, Phantasy Star 2, Mystic Quest, Sword of Vermilion(GOD I love this game), Breath of Fire 2, Super Mario RPG, Phantasy Star 3, Chrono Trigger, Actraiser...

    I wish I could just copy/paste them from my Wii. That's only a very small chunk of change I've spent. I'm sure you can find something in there that you like that I'll like.
