WiFi Nightmares – are Friend Codes really a solution?


No matter which games you decide to play online, there will always be someone there to mess up the good times. The notorious Halo after-battle-chats have plagued parents’ thoughts for a long time. Now, after buying a child friendly game console, the Wii,  their thoughts may have been inaccurate about child friendly WiFi.

Recently on the Infendo Forums, user Alucard posted a picture of the “Nintendo WFC Central” screen from Mario Strikers (pictured above). It displayed a vulgar Mii, courtesy of the “Striker of the Day”.

Even with Friend Codes and Nintendo’s security, things like this will invade the network. So, is there a really a use for Friend Codes at all?
