@warioswoods: i don't know if you watched them prepare your sushi for you at that place, but i used to have lunch with my Japanese co-workers while i was over there, and some of them loved the stuff... it came in a little plastic cup, and after opening it (and one girl would always take an appreciative sniff... gag me!), apparently the procedure is to stir it up thoroughly... ugh, it was always just a bean-filled mass of big, long, sticky strings of fermented grossness that reeked of feet. horrible to watch.

i did try a bite out of politeness (and just to say I had!) but never again will i eat that stuff. D:

Wii games are just fine lengthwise, for the most part (though I do wish there had been more to Mini Ninjas, and I hear Muramasa is kinda disappointing lengthwise as well). WiiWare, however... considering we're paying less than half the price of a retail game, we're getting what we paid for IMO.

as i said in the other thread, they could just be preparing for the eventual Western release of the G&W DSiWare versions. who would want to waste 800 coins (or whatever the price was) on the DS version when you could spend 2 bucks a pop and get all the ones they want to release instead of just those three on the one cartridge? :3

@theblackdragon
Not to be picky, but the e-Reader didn't just "unlock" the extra levels (a common misconception); the cards that you scan actually contain all of the level data in the dotcodes. There were a total of 32 new levels distributed through the cards (many of them only in Japan), and, as I've brought up in other threads, they are all fantastic. The best new 2D Mario levels in ages.

though i stand corrected on that point, the bottom line is that the game cartridges themselves did not contain these apparently awesome levels; thus, i still have never had the chance to play them. i wish they'd included them on the cartridge and also a way to actually unlock them instead of going with the e-reader gimmick... surely if the data could be contained on a scannable card, it could've been included on the actual cartridge, right? SMB3, graphics and map updates and all, couldn't possibly have been a big enough game to take up the entire available space on a GBA cartridge... :(

i didn't mind the GBA versions; what I did mind was that you had to have the e-reader to unlock the extra content. i never had an e-reader, so no extra levels for me. :(

we may find the 'tee hee, watch a celebrity play Wii/DSi games' commercials insipid, but if the unwashed masses are really eating it up, Nintendo's gotta do what they've gotta do to keep sales up at the moment. whatever it takes to keep their numbers in the black, y'know?

Meh another case of teenagers who try to bee cool by being assholes (just a guess).
Be yourself and be happy for doing so.
For example I always liked Pokémon since Blue when i was a kid, i remember to hide it in my teenagers days in fear of other making fun of me, now as a adult, i dealed with it, i proudly say that i sill love playing it, and if someone mock my tastes they are just people who doesn't diserve my attention.
So in your case try awser them like "No thanks i'm actually secure of myself enough to play what i what without fearing others" or something like that.

listen to this man, ryanknight717, for he has posted some good advice. :)

@theblackdragon - it sounds to me like one of the daily press briefings the administration holds, only that the prez attended and not just the press secretary. Or it could have been during his interview with CNBC. It was released by TMZ and ABC after all.

it was an off-the-record part of an interview with ABC news, and a couple of the ABC reporters freaking twittered about it and it went from there; that's how it got out in the first place. with juicy tweets like "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential," of course TMZ would jump on that... that's probably why it snowballed so quickly. it was a completely unprofessional move... if the ones who tweeted about it haven't lost their jobs for this, i wouldn't be surprised to find out they won't ever be trusted with anything important for ABC for quite a while. don't they have confidentiality agreements in the contracts they sign before they're hired there? after all, they do interview very high-profile individuals; there's got to be all kinds of off-the-record crap that could blow up on Twitter just like this.

his full statement seems to have been more like "The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person, she's getting her award ... What's he doing? He's a jackass,"... a perfectly natural thing to say after watching Kanye do that. :/

so i have to be a tom-boy to enjoy playing video games? or are you trying to say i haven't yet devoted enough time to playing my Wii? plz to advise, because i'm not sure which way to be offended by this. :P

The issue is not that she is a women that approves of frat-fart game culture, the issue is she is on the INSIDE and this study COPNFIRMS that most people who look for opinions on games are on the OUTSIDE and do not WANT to look IN! (Becuase of the marginal, self defeating stereyotype confirming nature of game sites, including NL - to a point) Read this topic man - everyone is right its ladies nite and where are the ladies - in VERY short supply. Where are the mothers, looking for advice?

if the 'mothers looking for advice' are serious about it, they can learn what they need to know from reviews all over the internet, as well as places like Amazon and stuff that offer a way to leave reviews on products bought by consumers. they can also ask the people selling them the game if they go to a specialty store like GameStop for it. the 'mothers looking for advice' have enough to do with caring for their families, maybe working outside the home too, making time for hobbies and/or exercise, and so much other stuff that I'm not surprised in the least that we don't get many here. I wonder how many people here are actually fathers, too. I know there are plenty of gamer men and women with children out there, but i'm sure they pick and choose which forums they post on, because there's just not enough hours in the day.

also, have you ever considered the idea of lurkers? i've checked other websites for reviews and information, but that doesn't mean I also have usernames there and I also post there too. you don't know that those 44% don't actually check and read up on games here there or anywhere else because there's nothing for guests to the website to check to confirm that they are male or female. if other females prefer to lurk or to just check the reviews or main site without making usernames and posting, and they don't want to get involved in what usually adds up to (on most gaming websites, anyway) people wrangling endlessly over which game was better, that's their business, isn't it? they've got better things to do with their time than get involved here, too, and that's okay. whatever works for them. NL puts out the info, and the people who want to partake of it do so. it doesn't seem like they have any problem with people not visiting, so until there is a problem, why fix what isn't broken?

Where is the diversity of opinion and thought? Where is the maturity? Where are the mainstream gamers???

This is the same stuff you've been parroting for months now -- boo hoo, people are having fun the way they want to have fun, making (sometimes) obscure gaming jokes, messing around, and arguing (politely?) over things with one another in a group discussion-type setting, and you don't like it. More confirmation that you're doing this for yourself, Eugene. Congratulations on finally coming up with a way to phrase it all, though, that doesn't make you sound like a complete jerk (at first). :)
