@WaLuigi1982: Two things.

  • If you would like to not receive e-mails from Nintendo Life, there is a radio button under 'My Profile' (in the box at the top of the site window, the one that has your username/icon in it) where you can choose to receive or not to receive e-mails from Nintendo Life.
  • If you have a problem with how you were treated the other night, there is a contact form here for you (also located at the top of the screen, under 'contact'). Feel free to make your account deletion/ban request with that form, if that's what you really want; us mods can't do anything like that. Only an admin can ban/delete/whatev' someone. :3

@Stuffo: now that we've all kinda deduced what happened, I think it's time to lock this one. Problem solved? :3


Thanks, Dragon. Just adding my response here also: WaLuigi, c'mon. If getting your wrist slapped prevented you from accepting my welcoming you to continue participating in the forums, then that's on you. Resurrect any thread you want, so long as you're adding something meaningful to those older threads in particular (pointless comments typically go overlooked in current threads). Prosody addressed this in his closing remarks. -Vendetta

Just to add my two cents to this topic, everyone is welcome to post in any topic they want as long as it contributes something worthwhile and meaningful. Don't let a small setback put you off - grab the forum by the horns and really show them who's boss. Prosody

@jbrodack: i think you're thinking of the save that was available for Beat, not Core. Core had no such save-file available for download. :3

also, i greatly disagree with the 'there's no sense of beating the game if you've already got it unlocked' thing -- Control was ridiculously easy compared to Exploration, but I can see why they would've laid out the songs to have Control last, as it was definitely the best song out of the three aurally. it made no sense to have Exploration be so crazy hard to beat when Control was so easy, IMO, but even after I beat Control, I fired up Exploration and finally beat that for myself, too, and I feel just as accomplished as if I hadn't had Adam's save-file. I still busted my rear for days to beat Exploration, and it feels great to have finally beaten it (after taking a play-break with Control instead). :3

@Adam: heck yeah, we'll tag-team Void if we have to in order to get through it. :D

@Adam: turned it on today, beat Control on the first try. figured 'what the heck', tried Exploration, and beat it on the first try too. Core is officially pwnt, hahaha, can't wait for Void. :3

I must thank you for getting me back into these games, and also again for the save file. They're much more fun when you know someone else out there is suffering through the same things as you are, and i think beating Control helped me to get through Exploration finally (light at the end of the tunnel and all that).

The Nintendo Channel has been updated, and Nintendo Week has a gameplay trailer and stuff. It looks all right, but I never played the original, so i dunno what to expect, really. I'll probably wait to see what kind of reviews it gets first. :3

Thanks a lot for spoiling it (not that there was much to spoil; either Cena would'a won or he'd'a gone to Smackdown, no big surprises there). Changed your title for you in case anyone else who watches WWE stumbles upon this topic. :/

That said, I'm sick of seeing the same old Cena/Orton BS hyped up for PPV events. WWE needs some new blood making their way up the kayfabe ranks already.

i know we've got a bazillion threads on this kind of topic, but here's the most recent with a fairly all-encompassing title.

Also, for everyone complaining about threads not being locked immediately -- the quickest way to get a mod to take a look at a thread for you is to use the 'report' button, not to merely whine in-thread about how much it needs to be locked and hope someone will eventually stumble upon it. :3
