@Captain_Gonru Actually 'color' is a more traditional way of spelling the word and it's the same with a lot of words which have 'u's in British English and not America English.

The British added the 'u' to many of these words because for a period during the French Revolution French culture was very fashionable in England, and so many people would use French words and add superfluous characters to English words (often ones that were derived from French long before). It's just a quirk of English that's still hanging around.

@deKay That's the difference between an abbreviation and an acronym. I've pronounced it every which way but loose and someone always complains that it's incorrect so I just go with whatever I feel like these days. At the end of the day everyone know what I'm talking about and it's not like these pronunciations are unheard of, so it's not really an issue.



AlexOlney commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

It's a real honour to be able to work with such talented people and be a part of such a genuinely fantastic outlet. I might not have been around here as long as ten years but the support I receive on a daily basis keeps me going on the video side of things even when things seem a little bleaker than I'd like.

Kudos to all my colleagues, all of you lovely people who read our guff, and special thanks of course to then man himself pHaT-aNt_.

@mjc0961 What I read from your comment is that you don't own the game and you're basing your entire opinion on a single, short article about an addition to said game.

This game came out six months ago and Nintendo is still providing additional content on a weekly basis. Bravo.

I'm worried about this, it sounds like a great idea in theory but I can't see an awful lot of support for it in the long term.

It's a nice idea, but I don't really think it's anything more than that, which is a real shame.

This would have been so impressive on the GameCube, the fluid animation, the superb graphics for the machine, the works. I still really enjoyed it on the 360, but I feel it was a bit of an older concept by that time, this could've blown the Ninty market away.
