Greninja's tongue changes orientation in the 3rd picture (think Goku's hair). I wonder how that would look in motion. Does his tongue un-coil and then immediately re-coil the opposite way really, really fast every time he changes direction?

Since when is bastard a foul word? It just means "illegitimate child", and even Bart Simpson pointed it out in an old Simpsons episode. Yes, it can be used as an insult, but it's hardly on the same level of offensiveness as, say, something involving mothers and the F word in verb form.
This world we are living on is becoming too prudish for its own good... (shakes head and sighs)

Well, it depends. If you enjoyed the retail version of the game and are willing to play a version that's graphically much closer to the author's original vision (original graphics and music), and also includes a couple of new, super challenging areas, then go ahead.
A note on Wind Fortress and Nemesis Challenge: These two areas are not incorporated into the main game. They are accessed from the main menu instead. Also, they are hair-pullingly hard (especially the second one).

That's actually debatable. Both translations are equally fine in my book. I have no preference in that regard. As for the visuals, yes, Steam has the updated graphics from WiiWare version, but lacks the stereoscopic layered 3D from the 3DS eshop version. So it's sort of a tie. In the end, it really just depends on whether you want to play it on a PC or on a handheld console.

The physical version has completely remade 2,5D polygonal graphics and rearranged music, and looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUVLyT1xtmw
The eshop download version retains the original pixel art and chiptune music, with stereoscopic 3D depth applied to the visuals, not unlike Mutant Mudds, for example, and it looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJbAs-sSX4A
Also, it includes two extra -and very difficult- optional areas not present in the original freeware release (Wind Fortress and Nemesis Challenge).
If you ask me, this is pretty much the best version of the game currently available.
