@irken: i dunno if he was drunk while taking the pics, but i think he was drunk while posting them... and wasn't alcohol also behind that hookup thread where we all busted out with the Love Calculator, and also behind him giving out free ponies in the first place? :3

I'm certainly not a fan of the show, but Star Trek (the movie that just came out) was one of the greatest sci-fi action movies I've ever seen!

And all I wanted was a good Star Trek movie, but I didn't get it. :( I'm glad the non-Trekkies enjoyed it though, but it wasn't a Trek movie, so they are bound to.

When you're able to keep in mind that the Star Trek XI universe is not our ST universe, it's a damn good movie IMO. It was all fanservice to me (except for Uhura and Spock; wtf were they thinking having her in a relationship with him DDD: ). can't wait to get it on DVD... :3

@Machu: 'The Chase' was kinda lame in the end, but this is why I love 'Timescape'. :3 though I must admit i always get 'Timescape' confused with 'The Next Phase', the one with Geordi and Ensign Ro both stuck out of phase, and then they finally manage to get people to realize what's happened to them at their own memorial-service party... when Ro knocks that Romulan out into space, that part creeps me out. just flying off into space like that... ugh. D:

and speaking of good TNG episodes, the one with the four cadets going through their promotion dramas is excellent... 'Lower Decks', I think it was called. I love eps that reference things that have happened before, and that one always makes me kinda sad because you get to liking the group of friends, and poor Ensign Sito had pretty much redeemed herself after the events of 'The First Duty', and then that happens. And her friends have to deal with it afterward, with Lavelle wondering if he would've gotten the promotion if she'd still been around and all that... :/

@'Chu: i was never a huge Yar fan, but that was a good episode. I enjoyed it when they played around with alternate realities/dimensions/whatever... one of my favorite eps like that was 'Parallels', with Worf coming back from the bat'leth tournament over and over and over... and over again, lol. it was interesting to see how everything had changed in each quantum reality (the way his room/party was set up, Data's painting, etc.), though the whole married-to-Troi thing was kinda... yeah, no. hahaha, i'm so glad they didn't continue down that line with the series. :3

@warioswoods: have you ever played Star Trek: Borg before? it was a game for Windows 95/98 and it was totally a point-and-click Star Trek adventure featuring Q as he 'helps' a cadet to save his father back at Wolf 359. It's kind of a short game, but it's both absolutely hilarious and awesome... and the best part is that it totally takes advantage of the Tapestry situation (with Q in the white room playing God every time you make a decision that winds up with you dying, lol).

anyway, back to the original post... my husband and I are both huge Star Trek fans; TOS is my absolute favorite, but he got me loving DS9 a couple years back. I never could stand DS9 back when it was airing new, but now i guess i can understand it better than when i was younger, lol. And don't blame me for not watching Enterprise enough... toward the end, they kept moving it around different channels and time-slots, so i was either always working or watching something else. I'm pretty sure it was on against wrestling at one point as well... sorry, ENT, but you'll be on DVD someday, and mah testosterone-y soaps run live. :3

and re: absolute favorite ST episodes, my favorite TOS ep is The Empath. It centered on the Trio (i loves me some Kirk, Spock, and McCoy interaction kthx), and it showed how much they really cared (in a totally platonic way) for each other, that they would each go out of their way to be the one to lay down his life so that the others would be spared. The Vians and Gem were nearly incidental to what played out between the Trio in that episode.

@JR, bboy: i'm pretty sure Nintendo requires that the DSi the games are being transferred from be broken somehow -- they were only willing to do that if you sent both the broken (non-working condition) and good DSis to them, and they'd do it for you as a favor. Not two good, working-condition DSis. I doubt wario would be willing to break one just to have the other with all his games on it.

edit: in fact, here's the official word on that. though if you call them up and it turns out policy for the US is different, that would be pretty awesome. :3

personally, I think it's easy, but then I've played it a bazillion times. Though there are still places in the game that can give me problems if i'm not adequately prepared (damn you world 7 and your black-piranha-plant-alternating-pipes), those kinds of levels that still provide challenge are why I go back and play through SMB3 every so often. :3

Will it need voice acting? Probably not, or at least i'd hope not. I'd certainly hope a Zelda game would be able to keep me captivated via story and interesting dungeons alone, flashy graphics and other frills (minigames, collecting quests, trading sequences, etc.) aside.

That said, i've never really been a fan of voice-acted games to begin with. I've always preferred just coming up with my own voices for the characters in my own head... sometimes one annoying voice can make the game's dialogue a chore to wallow through. If they do have voice-acting in the new Zelda Wii game, I hope they allow us to turn the voice volume down or off in the options menu. :3

I just wish to know how many of the people who said that completed the game, actually finished all levels eating just melons and got the black and white Yoshis. This game is about scores, if you beat it once and didn't stand the gameplay, hated the music and simply didn't enjoyed it, nothing to do, but if you liked it, there's a lot more stuff to uncover on this game. Personally, I like the gameplay, music and score system, but that's just me. :)

I did indeed complete every level, get every melon, and find the black and white Yoshis. I still was not a huge fan of this game, lol. Beating my own scores did not interest me in the slightest, though making sure I had fully completed the game did keep me busy for a couple days. :3 I just remember that there was a Nintendo Power article or something back then where Miyamoto had been explaining his vision for Yoshi's Story and why they'd created it the way they did (where the ultimate goal was to beat your own scores and compete with your friends amongst yourselves to see who had the best score), and I think I facepalmed when i was done reading it. Ah well.
