Um no, I think you're looking for night AND day.

I wish as an aircraft maintainer, that I could drink on the job like what seems most of todays journalists. It pains me to read almost anything in the news these days. That goes for the big names as well...

A lot of irony in this one.

Story title: "Nintendo of Europe Blocks Mature Content at Night"

Last line: " If you want to buy some of the more mature Wii U games, you'll have to wait until late at night to do so."

*slow clap* What a bright editor...

My favorite comment: the one about the guy wanting to be an aircraft mechanic so he could be drunk all the time like journalists. What the H*ck?!?!?

Just one more reason to avoid the EU nanny state. Heaven forbid parents are expected to perform 'parenting'... better to let the state handle that anyway. There really is no more efficient way to produce a generation of idiots.

If they tried to limit porn to 4 hours a day in the US, the whole country would riot.

... wait, who am I kidding. We're turning into as much a bunch of PC ninnies as the EU.

I fail to see how this is a bad thing.
You want to download the boobs, blood and guns? Just wait till later in the day. No biggie. If it is, grow up.

Treating people as sheep, and limiting freedoms because of course sheep can't know any better, is the reason why this world is not growing at full potential.

Each time some entity outside of myself tells me I can't have access to violence or porn, I feel enraged. It is not their place to do so. It is my place as an adult to either control myself or not. If I happen to destroy myself in the process, nobody else is to blame but me.
This includes but is not limited to heavy or light drugs, alcohol, watching reality shows, buying apple products, doing whatever I wish with one or more consenting adults, engaging in unprotected intercourse with underage Artificial Intelligence, skydiving, mountain climbing, etc.

So i would have to wait till the time well after i've gone to bed most nights before getting access to, and then finish downloading about half of all media and gaming content...

Why would anyone think that treating their customers like a naughty, German, children would be a successful move. Nintendo has lost the plot entirely.

Another reason (and the pile continues to grow) why no one should touch the Wii with a barge pole.

Oookay. So, that's either a reference to a work of speculative science fiction that I'm not familiar with, or juuust a little more than I needed to know about a fellow poster...

You fail to see how people would be unavailable for 4 specific hours a day? Grow up yourself and get a life and a job. Not everyone is home 24/7. They have parental controls, should be enough.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to fail comprehension and say it's Nintendo's fault. Nintendo is doing this in Europe, to abide by German law.. Germany is a part of Europe, complain to Germany. Nintendo doesn't need to prgram a different market for every single country in the EU. Complain to your entire semisocialist big brother of a union. It's not like the EU listens to any of the wishes of it's citizens anyway. If I were you, I'd be more concerned about the eventual fall of the shaky union rather than having to stay up to buy Zombi U.
