so i destroyed a crystal last night and nearly had a heart attack because my game is set to auto-save and i walked out onto the map before shutting it off because i didn't want to continue before i'd beaten the game and seen the 'real' ending... i thought i was stuck and would have to go through this all over again D: thank goodness for being able to restart before having broken the crystal, lol :3

@cookiex: I forget if it was part of her support conversations with the avatar or if it was in the DLC someplace, but yeah, Tharja's hopelessly obvious about her feelings for the avatar. She kinda gets stalker-esque about it, though, like she knows exactly how important the avatar is to the world or the story but without ever breaking that fourth wall (it's complicated, but she's technically a necromancer and Grima is technically who she's supposed to be following, and the avatar is technically Grima's avatar... idk, it made sense in my head lol).

I much prefer Tharja with Henry when it comes down to it, they both have the whole necromancer and dark magic thing going for them so they fit well IMO :3

it doesn't sound like you broke the spring, it sounds like the first time (when you pulled it), the console still had the spring in the 'inserted' position. Then when you pushed it back in, the spring reset to the 'ejected' position (pushing it back out at you), so when you pressed it a third time it went back to the 'inserted' position with no problems. As long as the spring continues to work normally, it sounds like it's fine — just be careful to not pull your games while they're fully inserted into the system from now on. Remember, when they're ejected, they're naturally pushed out a ways so you can get a better grip on 'em :3

@CapnPancakes: With all due respect, you dropped an inflammatory bomb and left it in a thread asking for users to discuss GLBTQI issues in gaming, and the recent article thread proves how quickly that sort of thing can snowball even at a site like ours. No one is asking for your personal opinion, they're asking for game-related discussion. We're gonna handle this the way we do the MLP thread to cut the general nastiness between users; the MLP thread has functioned just fine over the years on its own with relatively little friction, and we'd like to see this thread as the same sort of 'safe space' for these users to engage in discussion.

You don't have to participate in this thread at all if you don't want to. No one is forcing your hand. Please leave it be if it bothers you, and participate in other threads if you like. Thanks in advance!

All right guys, after the fiasco that was that Tomodatchi Collection article thread, we're not having a second space for people to show their butts. This thread will be handled like the MLP thread — if you are in here, we ask that you stick to open, civil discussion of the topic at hand, which is clearly outlined in the first post. This is not the place to post homophobic statements, this is not the place to preach passive-aggressively about how 'wrong' being not-straight is. If that's what you want to do, we ask that you keep it to yourself. This is not the place for an open war between straights and non-straights, period.

Trolling will absolutely not be tolerated. The discussion in here has been nice so far, and we'd like to keep it that way. Users who post for the purpose of dropping inflammatory bombs will see their posts deleted. Users who continue to attempt to provoke a negative response in this manner may find their accounts banned from posting altogether. This will be your only warning, any complaints will be redirected to this post. Don't like it? Too bad. There are plenty of other forums that allow their users to absolutely run rampant over one another. If that's the kind of thing you want, go elsewhere.

given the long history of intermarriage between royal cousins, if it had been an honestly romantic relationship, it wouldn't really have surprised me, lol

@RicoPenguin: haha, i had no idea you were around on the forums. i was seriously about to give the hell up on that fight until i stumbled across your strategy, and then it was all 'there's no way it can be that easy', and then i started thinking up ways to make it work even better. thanks for doing the ground work, and you're welcome to add my tweaks to your guide if you like. anything that helps other players get through that battle, y'know? lol~

anyway, my party just dinged level 99 tonight and i'm finishing up the last few jobs i wanted on them — maybe later I'll go back and grind up all the rest of their jobs, but i'm tired of running circles out in the Florem area and would like to get back to the story, lol. here's hoping i'll have done enough to get through these last couple chapters already :3

@ShadJV: The setting of the game makes adoption absolutely likely — there are all kinds of villages being destroyed, people dying, children potentially orphaned. They could easily have had the parents adopt an orphaned child that somehow had the same 'bred' characteristics from the adoptive parents. The real problem (I think) is that it would've opened the game up much more than it already had been. It already takes an insane amount of time to go through and see every single conversation available between the characters, imagine how many more they'd have to come up with for same-sex couples and their ensuing children... not to mention all the children they'd have to invent for the fathers since all the current children are tied to the mothers, and the extra conversations between those kids and the other kids and the avatar and holy crap, it'd be absolutely insane. amazing, but insane.

After grinding conversations in that game for a few weeks (and i'm still not done! i have to go back and finish... someday), as much as I would've enjoyed having same-sex relations an option in the game, I have to admit I can see why they would have left it out as an option. Perhaps in the future they'll switch things up with how 'breeding' works and have the kids tied to specific characters that aren't all female, but for this first foray into the deal, I came to accept it for what it is.

I do apologize, but are you talking about us here at NL, or about Nintendo? If it's us, just so you know, we're not paid for what we do, we're all volunteers.

it's been done before, but not by many. i remember Cena doing it once in particular. i loved Rey in the corner begging to be spared, though. classic Eddie, RIP man. and Kofi with that crazy landing, holy crap that was lucky lol.

and regarding Taker, i figured he didn't have much more left in him, but to Brock Lesnar of all people??? he has zero personality, his matches are boring as hell, and he doesn't give a damn about anything that's not a PPV. there are so many more deserving wrestlers in that back room than him, and he's the one to break the streak??? Punk should've been the one to do it this year. what the hell. how is Lesnar beating that streak 'best for business', anyway? i know o tuned in to watch Taker kick butt :(

DB vs. everyone was excellent, though. he deserved every minute of that confetti and fireworks, and then some. i think after Taker's loss, if he hadn't won they would've rioted lol.

when the police took down your information for their report and you gave them the serial number of the 3DS that was pawned, were you given a copy of the report? there are a few possible scenarios that can happen for you, but only by having filed a proper report with the police (instead of just talking to a cop buddy in passing, for example) can you really do anything to reclaim some of what you've lost.

(a) Once you've got the report with the serial number in hand, try checking around some of the local pawn shops. Tell them your property was stolen and pawned without your knowledge, and if they've got any 3DSes in stock, ask them to check for one with your serial number on it. Should your stolen 3DS turn up in their inventory, depending on the laws in your state you may have to pay them what they paid to take it off of her hands in the first place (you can file suit in court against her later on to get that money back if it's worth it to you, but filing fees may cancel out the benefits to where it'd be just on principle). Whether they return it to you or charge you for it, the important thing is that the pawn shop will have to report the person who pawned it to the authorities for having pawned stolen goods — they'll have taken down her information and gotten copies of her ID or whatever the state requires.

(b) if you are unable to locate your 3DS in any local pawn shops and the authorities turn up nothing as well, that police report will still help you to regain any downloadable content you may have purchased on your system via Nintendo themselves if you do wind up replacing the system yourself. You'd need to get in touch with Nintendo, they'll ask you for the report number and they'll work things out on their end with you once everything comes up legit. It won't help you in terms of locating your original system, your save files and whatever SD card and game cart you had in it will still be gone, but if you had a lot of downloadables, at least you'll have something left for your troubles.

To be honest, when looking around town for your system, you'll probably want to check local game shops that take merchandise as trade-ins, like Gamestop, Best Buy, etc. and so forth — you never know if it'll turn up, and i know Gamestop definitely takes your ID information whenever you trade in anything there. They'd probably be bound by the same laws as a pawn shop when it comes to traded merchandise, and they'd have to report this person to the authorities as well.

whatever happens, best of luck to you. it sucks being taken advantage of by someone you thought you could trust. :/

Seconding the Big Pharma method of earning pg. Once you get things going and figure out the rhythm for your party, you can just set it to Auto and forget about it, lol. I think I had one battle going on its own for just over an hour while i played me some sudoku on the side, wound up about 500,000 pg richer with zero effort on my part after the initial few turns. it's almost a game to see how long you can keep a battle going at that point before your party accidentally wins, haha :3
