Topic: OhmyGod! No waaaaay!

Well, I said it and meant it - that if I were subjected to one of those awful, awful talking ads here on Nintendo Life, that I would be gone for a month. And, like, oh my God, no waaaay... it just happened!

Perhaps I was lucky to have gone for so long without getting one these unacceptably offensive ads. Usually I just got a huge pair of jugs in my face and something about a game called Evony. Unsophisticated? Perhaps. But not offensive, per se - and certainly not unacceptably so.

So ciao for now, fellow NLifers. It's probably for the best, honestly. (EDITED for clarity: The real reason though is that) I've been neglecting some things off-site that I should get to anyhow. Some will consider this good riddance, to be sure - and that's ok. Enjoy it while it lasts. And to my friends out there, Daz, Corb, Sean, CB and the rest - you know how to reach me should you need anything, or in the event you get this noisy ad thing cleared up 'ere my sabbatical is through.

Cheers all. See you next month.
Ave atque vale,
-V

I dislike those ads too, but I'm not leaving Nintendo Life because of it.

I hate those sound ads. Since the last few weeks I get an ad with a tedious high pitched "muhahaha" on almost every site I go on (damn you google for ruling most of the ads no the internet). The laugh comes at every mouseover and you can't turn it off. And the ads are placed so that you have to mouseover them to click on certains things, like a text box or a link...
but strangely I don't get ads on nintendolife at all...probably because I'm not from the UK or US and my IP gets filtered from the "ad display list"

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

@Vendetta - We're happy to wok with our ad partner to block the most annoying ads. There's no need to be hasty and leave. If you have any concerns please use our contact form to let us know about it. If you could also take a screenshot that would be helpful too.

I use Firefox with adblock and flashblock, so no annoying ads at all for me.

Well, if you were planning on taking off for a bit anyway, best of luck. I wouldn't leave just because of the ads (as annoying as they are), though. Honestly, the talking ads and the fake virus scans are the only ones that really get under my skin.

Really? I use the same and they still sometimes get through.

Hiya, Dazza. I had to come back and reply to your post... As much as I hate the talking ads - the problem is really your site. You see, it's soooo freaking addicting that I've been neglecting this stack of work that's been growing on my desk.

I have this OCD-type need to check the forums incessantly, and read the news and kick-ass reviews. I simply don't possess the discipline to restrain myself! The talking ad was just a playful excuse, don't take it the wrong way.

So Chatham got it right with his "OMG! No Way!" post. This was kinda tongue-in-cheek.

No more talking ads would be a good thing, though.

Do you also have flasblock not just adblock, also noscript works great, it stops ads from playing unless you manually play them yourself.

Me too.
It's very useful.

My favourite ads are the ones about the "Natural Male Enhancement", such as "Surprise her with a bigger penis!

Sigh
They're all still evil, though.

I always get it right. And yea, there are ways to disable media-ads. Now if only we could get that ad to show every time you entered this thread... That would be ROFL-sauce!

I... just keep my volume down.

What ad are you talking about, anyways?

@Swiket: There's one that promotes a bunch of free emoticons and a cartoonish voice says "oh my God, no waaay!" It obnoxious.

NLife offers us an incredible value in entertainment with the forum community, saved money by exposing crapware in professional reviews, and excitement in previewing upcoming games. I've got nothing against them making a buck on ad sales. I won't install an ad blocker because if they serve up an ad I'm interested I'll click it and give them the referral revenue. In my opinion, that's just good 'netizenship. But boy do I hate noisy ads.

Whoops! Seems I had disabled flashblock. Unless the ad became self-aware and did it itself.

Very creative! I hear HR is looking for sinister minds like yours at Guantanamo Bay. New means of "enhanced interrogation," "tell me what you know or you get THE AD!"
