not really... probably the one thing i do IRL that i don't do here (on the site proper, anyway) is curse like a sailor -- when, where, and if it is appropriate to do so. :3 it doesn't make sense for me to act one way in one place and another in another place; it's just too much work, lol.

preach on, brother Adam. i loves me some platforming goodness... platformers will never become 'obsolete', so long as there are people who regularly enjoy playing them. :/

@TJ: calm down, dude, no need to bite heads off. i think irks was just making sure you knew the game had already been reviewed by NL, if you were interested in seeing a review as well as hearing if others were as excited as you are, apparently. :3

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.

@Sean: lol, appropriate -- O'Brien married Keiko in that very episode I was talking about :3
if you already knew that and weren't just making a joke, i apologize for telling you what you already knew, lol

@warioswoods: i think that's why I liked O'Brien. Geordi and Data solving everything (sometimes with help from holograms or Wesley, lol) was great, but O'Brien got down and dirty with stuff all the time. He also had the family thing going on... DS9 had a lot of family stuff going on, in fact. I think that helped ground that series more firmly into some form of reality, with the characters having actual family around to interact with and stuff. it's one thing to see a character out in space, but it's another to see that same character going home to his son or his wife and child in space or finding his estranged father and having to deal with them.
