if you're gonna be in Kyoto anyway, i'd recommend Himeji (and specifically, Himeji Castle). If you want some absolutely breathtaking photos of a Japanese castle that's never had to be rebuilt after fire or attack, that's the place you want to go. There's also a very nice garden next to it where you can get some good photos too.

Child of the Sword
i dunno, i mean, link is constantly destined to bear the Master Sword, so i guess you could go so far as to say he was 'made' for it, thus he's as much a child of the sword as is the sword itself, figuratively, and we still don't know if she's actually the master sword itself or if she's some kind of derivative person or relative of it, somehow, even... and that kinda made more sense in my head than it does in text, so it kinda works for both Link and the sword-chick and... shut up, don't look at me like that... :/

... i was also thinking 'Spirit of the Sword', but that one requires far less explanation :P

If i want to say a game is awesome, i have the right to do so without giving a five-page essay along with it. if i want to say a game sucked, i also have the right to do so without giving a five-page essay along with it. it's my opinion, and on the internet, opinions are a dime a dozen. you're welcome to disagree with my opinion, but you derailed the heck outta that thread with your arguing, and that's why i cleaned it up.

in my opinion, it's not worth arguing over. you can't please all of the people all of the time, and thinking that everyone is going to like what you like is foolish. there's probably plenty of things you thought sucked that i thought were awesome, so what's the big deal?

@Sean: if you want the save-file, just let me know and i'll send it to you. Control is an awesome song, it really is, and it wasn't half as hard as Exploration is/was. it took me maybe three tries to beat Control, whereas Exploration took both me an' Adam days to beat, lol. it was so bad, we agreed that whomever beat Exploration first would send the other their save-file, because we couldn't find any available save-files for Core on the web. :3

it was worth it, though, to be honest -- after all that time practicing Exploration, i think it took me like two or three tries to get through Control, and then out of curiosity i fired up Exploration again, which i finally then beat on my own. Control is a beautiful song, and i can see why they would want the game to end on it instead of Exploration, but Exploration was ridiculously hard, hahaha.

You'll probably want to call Ninty about that before you take your DSi for a swim. I'm under the impression that usually you send in your busted one, and they send you a new or refurbished DSi of the same model.

that wouldn't work for what Waltz is describing -- he wants an LL, but he wants all his existing DSiWare on it. aside from the fact that he'd have to wait for an LL that's region-locked to his current DSi's region to be released before that could happen, it's mentioned here and here that you'll need to have already purchased the replacement first if you want your dsiware transferred to a different color console, much less model. :3
