Note that Feenie referenced ray62's nonsensical post... that should've been your clue right there, lol. Yes, the facepalms-get-edited-to-cute-puppies thing is a forum quirk, but reading comprehension is always the most important part of fully understanding jokes. :3

@ByDarwinsBeard Condescension? No, TBD was explaining that PhoenixAran's post about the N64 slot was in response to ray62's suggestion of a GBA slot. By exaggerating it into an N64 slot (clearly impractical) she was highlighting its absurdity. Her OoT mention was a tongue-in-cheek jab at backwards compatibility and 3DS remakes, but that wasn't the actual point of the post.

Of course, every time you analyse a joke it's not funny anymore.

We're all very tongue-in-cheek on this forum. Plenty of unmarked humour to go around. It's mostly done with good intentions, so please don't take it the wrong way.

I am still not sold on the directional pad and the slidepad being so close together. I just think it looks awkward to use the traditional directional pad. Hands are going to be at different levels. It may take a little getting used to...

I don't mind them being close, but the D-pad definitely looks like it could be uncomfortable to use. Hopefully this isn't the case in everyday use.

remember guys, the 3DS shown at E3 isn't the final design. It could well change.

i think theres a possibility,nintendocould make a gba card slot to put in the bottom of the ds to make it work. if they can do it for the wifi and rumble pack this should be a done deal.

Say what? Make what work?

I think my head 'asploded from this post

not that i was intending to condescend to you with that, but considering your prior reply of "uhm, you do know they're remaking OoT for 3DS, right?" i don't really think you have a leg to stand on there. :/

@bro2dragons I was going to post that article too. The design is pretty much final, so they won't be moving major components like D-pads and analog slidepads around.

EDIT: @irken Oh. I hope they smooth out the casing so it's more like the Lite/DSi. I hate all those grooves and notches around the place - in fact they remind me of the DS Phat somehow.

Besides, there's nowhere else for the D-pad and slidepad to go (except switch places, I guess, but that would make even less sense than the current configuration).

Hahaha, I love it when people dissect my jokes, it makes me feel like some sort a comedic genius.

...well at least for a moment anyways.

@PhoenixAran I was just reading too much into it. Fun to do.

I dunno about that, it was a spot-on analysis of what I was trying to say with that post, so... :3

Why thank you. It was a very clever post. You got your point across succinctly and with flair.
