    Now that's disappointing, and in my opinion, totally unnecessary.

    A shame. But I suppose that makes sense. After all, the Global Link is global and run mainly out of Japan.

    Considering that Sony have been outright taking some of their Online Play servers offline to conserve energy, Nintendo have been pretty generous (considering how they easily could have cut off Gen IV Wi-Fi).

    Very understandable. Considering the circumstances, I have no right to complain about a delay.

    I was really looking forward to trying Global Link. But if it's absolutely necessary, we have no right to complain. Also, I hope for the best to those affected by the disasters in Japan.

    Awwwww.. I hope it isn't delayed for too long. I was really excited about that.
    Oh well, I hope everything recovers soon!

    I hadn't thought that the recent situation might further delay the Global Link's release, but now it seems obvious.

    Aww...if it's for something like this, though, I can understand and wait patiently.

    ...but 9.0 magnitude? D8; I thought it was 8.9! Did they somehow remeasure the quake, or was there two ginormous earthquakes?

    I know I haven't been spotted in a while, but I'm rather stunned by this news.

    Honestly, I understand the necessity of conserving energy, and Nintendo has been more than generous with their offerings in the midst of the crisis. I'm actually wondering though why NOA or NOE haven't taken the reigns and set up server farms for the PGL yet. Honestly, at this point it's the next logical step.

    But that's just me. I really do feel for the men and women of Japan, and hope that their troubles cease soon. I wouldn't wish something like that on my worst enemy.

    I can understand the delay, but that really dampens my spirits. :(
    Now what do I have to look forward to?

    Honestly, the most annoying part is that they hid the announcement of the delay so well. It was really only chance that I stumbled across it, and no one else seems to have noticed it before me...

    Hopefully it's not too long. I can't bring myself to use berries since I won't be able to grow replacements...
