yeah, Gamestop has their points system and discounts on used titles, but if you're looking for the cheapest prices on new games, stick with Wal-Mart — if they have what you want in stock. I've seen brand new games go for $2 to $5 less than what Gamestop sells 'em for. Best Buy and Toys 'R' Us sometimes run deals on games (buy two get one, etc.), but again their stock might be limited, and they probably won't have lesser-known third-party titles in stock (think Atlus titles).

As mentioned above, Amazon is also good, but I'm an instant-gratification kind of girl — when i make the call to buy something, i want it now-now-now :3

SL68, have you ever seen a real woman's butt before? And I don't mean an airbrushed-to-perfection version like in your average magazine, but an actual female butt in real life? Or how about just a woman from the rear in general? We have hips, we have curves. The first version you've supplied, she has no hips and her thighs are missing, and in the second version, she's built that muscle mass back and grew some pelvic bones. That's the only difference.

If you were basing your arguments on the sexualization of Samus and whether or not it should have happened at all, that'd be one thing, but for all your arguing the only thing I'm seeing is someone ticked off that a female game character's form was updated to look more like she'd actually be able to walk around on a planet with Earth-like gravity. Cry me a river.

They're all canon.

Early in his life, Mario took a long time to settle on a career. He tried refereeing boxing and tennis matches, but he yearned to be part of the action rather than just judging it. He settled on plumbing for a long time (most of the platformers), but later in life he eventually realized he needed to make more money to impress the ladies. He went to pharmacology school and became a doctor (Dr. Mario). Unfortunately, Luigi's addiction to over-the-counter opiate-based drugs (developed after a short stint as a ghost hunter---he just really need to escape the nightmares, man) caused Mario to lose his license. You see, Luigi stole some drugs while visiting his brother at work, but Mario took the fall. That's why Mario eventually had to settle on a construction job (the aforementioned Wrecking Crew).

I hereby nominate this post for Hall of Fame status. If not this entire thread.

I'm not saying the three chosen ones are bad moderators; it's just that whenever there's a duplicate/inappropriate thread, @Tasuki's one, if not the, first responder 90% of the time.

We've already discussed it with him, and he knows the score and where we stand at this time.

@Aqueous: I probably should've mentioned that you're able to use the same save-files between both versions of the demo — i discovered that while experimenting to see whether the same guard-room glitch was in both versions, haha. you could've copied over your latest save-file from the first demo over to the second and played it from where you'd last left off :3
unless you hadn't saved recently, ignoring everything Emmy ever taught us noobs... naughty naughty :(

also, i've noticed that trying to speed through long stretches of dialogue can freeze the game at other points as well. the game froze for me once in the newbie training area (just before Emmy was about to demand their names), and another time in the Guard Room after LJM takes over (i ran into a wall and couldn't move during the automatic sequence). i guess the moral of the story is to not read too damn fast or try to skip around if you're replaying something, haha D:

SPOILER

when you enter the Guard Room after LJM takes over Black Tower, you'll go through an automatic scene and then it'll kick you back out into the corridor. DO NOT re-enter the Guard Room (or at least when you do, don't save your game!) because you'll be stuck with no way out afterward ;___;

I've gone ahead and moved this to the appropriate section of the forums. k8sMum is right, nothing wrong with a thread devoted to sharing FCs, even if the 3DS only has the one FC good for all games playable on the system — it'll allow users who are interested in maybe only playing this one game to get together and arrange visits to towns and whatnot. :3

@Yamagushi: You're still a consumer because you've purchased the device to play the game on, and you may make the call to actually purchase a copy of the game yourself to continue your save-file on after your friend has taken their disc back. If you could drop that tired 'game lending = piracy' comparison, i'd appreciate it greatly — there are legal precedents protecting a person's right to lend, borrow, or resell personal property, up to and including legally-purchased games, and there is a huge difference between buying one copy of a game and loaning it to a friend versus ripping the contents of a game you've purchased and offering it up in torrent form to thousands of leechers.

that said, you are right in saying 'not all political contributions are bad' — it depends on your personal point of view, your personal values and beliefs. There needs to be a bit more personal research done with regards to what spending was made, and I'm afraid Nintendo Life is not the place for such a politically-charged discussion. Thank you for making us all more aware, Treverend, and now it's time for everyone to do their own homework and make their own decisions. :3

Actually, it used to be at the top of the page — i guess the 'contact us' button was moved... i hadn't even noticed, haha, but to be honest i haven't really noticed any sudden increase in users not using it. feels about the same IMO :3
edit: i see what happened — apparently it was moved when the onmousehover 'channels' option was added to the site to take care of the tab clutter at the top of the page, haha. but i still can't say that i see an increase now in users unable to find the link. the only difference now is probably that we have twice the users is all :3
