What bro2dragons said. The forums are cluttered with post after post asking for recommendations, some with misleading titles and many asking for the same kind of recommendations ('1000 points, what do i do?' and so on), so I've been linking everyone to the universal recommendations thread and locking them as i see them. Thank you for understanding. :3

@NotEnoughGolds: in my experience, scones are much more dense and chewy than a nice, light, fluffy biscuit.

i dunno, a 'Netflix Channel' might be nice for current subscribers or people who were already halfway interested, but i don't use Netflix normally, and it wouldn't get me into the service if it were available on my Wii.

I know me and my brother and sister used to fight over who got to read our monthly copy of Nintendo Power first when I was a kid. I know it's changed since then, but I don't think a kid would mind so much -- even if you don't wind up liking those magazines, your sons probably will. :3

Why do you think NL's looking for news reporters? ;)

Nintendo Life Hall of Fame (hawl-uhv-feym) n. 1. The area of Nintendo Life to which threads/comments of great hilariousness importance are nominated, that they remain forever appreciated by the entire userbase; 2. The men's restroom.

First appeared on the NL forums during the year 2009, when user Chicken Brutus began nominating exceptionally hilarious threads/comments for 'Hall of Fame status'. When user theblackdragon questioned the existence of said Hall of Fame, it was then revealed that the NL Hall of Fame doubled as the men's restroom. The term has evolved in Chat to become a euphemism for restrooms in general regardless of gender; "visiting the Hall of Fame" translates to "dropping some kids off at the pool".

I honestly didn't pay attention to the DS at all until I saw the first commercial for NSMB... a brand new Mario platformer on a handheld system? heck yeah I wanted that. When it came out, my husband and I had the money, so we both went out and bought our lites, NSMB, and MKDS. Man, that was fun. :3

It's offical. Nintendo is the very most hated video game company this generation. I am not over-exaggerating this, look at this thread again!: http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_lobby/b8270/p1

It's increasing in a frightening pace. So far, as of now, there are 1,029 posts on that thread, 90% of which are hating on Nintendo. It's really sad how such an amazing company could receive so much hate and never be forgiven because of E3 2008. I fear for Nintendo's livelihood. Could there demise at the hands of angry former fans come soon? I hope it doesn't happen.

'frightening pace' my foot -- it's an article on the internet, and you're totally over-exaggerating. considering IGN's not exactly new to dogging Nintendo, if this 'demise at the hands of angry former fans' you keep suggesting hasn't happened yet thanks to one of their articles, it's not going to.
