so the other day, i purchased Earthbound (great game, it's my first time playing it), and i realized the game manual/handbook was online at nintendo's website.so i go to see this website, but... this is just WAY too slow for me to use. see, something like this is especially useful while i'm playing the game, so i don't want to use it on the WiiU internet, because it'll pretty much stop the game so i can look something up, which breaks the flow and can ruin my experience playing the game. i could use it on my computer, but my WiiU isn't close to my computer, so i can't do both at once. i have ben on the site before, and maybe it's just me, but it takes way too long to load a single page. just to compare, if i had the actual book, i could instantly flip through the pages with ease, and i could also play and read at the same time without having to pause or halt my game. so i've opted not to even use the manual. is the manual a problem for anyone else, i really want to know if it's just my own problem or if everyone else is dealing with the same thing.

(here is the manual, in case anyone doesn't know where to find it)

Digital manuals are lame. I'm glad I have two physical copies of the guide; one for actually using and one minty for my collection.

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

They should have included this with the actual game, just like the original.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

It's a very easy game that will inevitably put you to sleep during long sessions... People actually needed a guide for this?

My top tip would be to drink pints of coffee while taking these little babies ↓

This still didn't really work but that might be because I'm immune to its effects now ;)
