i dunno, some of the older ones are nice. I like the 'i left him cheese' commercial, with the little girl getting a buttload of awesome presents for having left Santa cheese instead of milk and cookies, and then there's the 'we wish you a merry christmas' one with the Hershey's Kisses being used as bells. That one's cute too. :3

can't stand the one for 'Santa Buddies', though. i know i'm not a part of the target audience, but i wish they'd stop advertising it during prime-time TV. :/

Actually this is a thread about American interest in the World Cup, it's far too early for a World Cup discussion thread.

I'm happy to move to another if someone wants to pimp it back to the top of the front page.

Considering I think you've had your say about how you feel about Americans not really watching soccer or keeping up with it as much as the rest of the world, and the fact that I'm done with the condescending attitude you've presented in this thread, I do think it's best if you started another thread for actual World Cup discussion. I apologize to everyone else in this thread, but this one is over.

(a) the World Cup happens every year, doesn't it? why wouldn't it be happening next year?
(b) i'm sure you could find it on in some sports bars and stuff, and interested people might watch it at home too (if they're home while it's on TV), but i doubt 'most' people will go out of their way to watch it, no, not the way they go out of their way to call in sick for the Super Bowl, lol
(c) not sure what the 'David Beckham factor' is, nor do i terribly care what he's up to at the moment. soccer's never been really high on my 'things to watch' list anyway. :3

@NintenDude97: let me guess did you get the imformation off of wikipidia?..... also america only updates on mondays.....

@geek-master: actually, that information comes from Nintendo themselves via the process of elimination, providing the 'Q4' in their press release from this past September refers to the fourth quarter of the calendar year. "December '09" in this case is "December 2009", not "December 9th". :3

However, we should have to pay for them, but only up to 1,000 Wii Points and we can keep them until we get the full game. Games can be at these points: 200, 500, 800, and 1,000 Wii Points with licensed games costing 100 points more.

software companies on the internet have been using the concept of 'shareware' to offer free demos forever now. Sony/game publishers used to give out free demo discs for playstation games in magazines, packed in with other games, and sometimes even at the register if you bought or reserved a different game, and PSN even now still does free demos. Xbox Live does free demos. With the DS being able to do download play for demos since it hit the streets, it's already set the precedent for Nintendo giving out free demos and encouraging demo play with your friends if you've purchased a cartridge.

To put it bluntly, there is no way in hell people will pay for game demos, and Nintendo would be shooting themselves in the foot if they were to try and charge for them. It's a demonstration of what the game can do, and the idea is to entice us into purchasing the game(s) for ourselves. Why should we pay for that?
I only wish Ninty'd'a released demos of different games i hadn't already bought, lol

@Liam: if i recall correctly, the problem was that 'Official' sounds like something coming from a staff writer (or someone actually 'contributing' to the site itself and not just someone hanging out on the forums, or worse yet, something 'officially' condoned by Nintendo Life). They let the 'official' thread titles slide for a long time, up until someone posted that 'official bashing thread' about a game they hadn't even played yet, which was totally not cool, and Prosody laid down the law accordingly.

Prosody wrote:

Also, a note to others - please don't use the word "Official" in your title unless one of the admins says so. It reflects very badly on the site if there's a topic claiming to be "Official" that's just insulting a game or developer.

One person took it too far and killed it for everyone else. Sorry, Liam, but them's the breaks. We know what everyone means by 'unofficial', so what's the big deal? :3
