Nintendo says "Never say never" to localizations of Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower and I continue not buying a Wii.
Yes, tonight's top story is that Nintendo told fans on its Facebook page today that the company isn't ruling out American localizations of three massively popular, hardcore games for the Nintendo Wii.

Reupping your subscription for 3 months will earn you 1 free bonus month. A full year's resubscription will come with 3 free bonus months. Guess I'll be renewing early!
