Re: Super Mario Bros. Z

i got the heads-up in chat the other night... man, it was what, over a year for the last ep, too. I hope he's gotten back into it, because damn, his new animation style is really awesome, and i certainly hope we don't have to wait over a year for the next ep too. D:

Re: I'm thinking about getting Galaxy, but I need advice...

theblackdragon

the 2D Marios don't really compare well to the 3D Marios... i'd say if you didn't like Mario 64 or the DS remake, you probably won't like SMG. There's a lot more to consider movement-wise in the 3D Mario games, there's forces of gravity to deal with in this one, and the new controls as well. If you're a perfectionist, be warned that there are a few stars in SMG that will take try after try after try to get, and you will get frustrated and want very much to throw your wiimote through a window, but if you just want to play through all the levels and beat the game and that's all, you'll probably be all right.

Guys, I hate to tell you this, but we might be in an war with the haters after all. And I'm not responsible for this.
We cannot let this site be hijacked by haters, this is one of the last resorts for true fans of Nintendo.

Why are you always so willing to 'fight' and 'war' against people? If the people you think are 'haters' would like to discuss rationally why they dislike the Wii here on the NL forums, great, more power to 'em -- a good old-fashioned discussion is hard to come by here sometimes, what with all the random posts and the fact that many of us agree with one another on some things, lol. If those discussions turn into shouting matches, we'll start locking threads, and if they'd rather troll the forums, we'll pick 'em off as they're reported. Please stop blowing things out of proportion, SSBFan, and whatever you do, don't get sucked into any fighting or warring you think is going on, because your posts will get moderated just as quickly if you're being as offensive as the 'haters'.

That goes for everyone, in fact. There is no 'war' to be won; everyone will lose. Keep your cool, guys.

Re: NintendoLife Blocked In China.

theblackdragon

i know there have been a couple spam-ish posts by Chinese sellers of accessories that were deleted (probably because they also sold flashcarts), and while NL has been very much anti-piracy, the forums have been fairly anti-China with regards to buying Nintendo products (mainly because a few of us have already been burned by sellers from HK and China with counterfeit products). that'd be my guess, at least.

... or perhaps it's the blog posts? i mean, hasn't China blocked blogs before? Perhaps they found SSBFan1999's blog thread subversive, lol... ;3

I have a bike. Admittedly, I didn't know how ride one until I was eleven. [blushes] But, I've been riding my bike less as the years went by, and I still remember how to. I haven't ridden one in about one-three year(s).

that's why everyone always says 'it's just like riding a bike', y'know? because once you know how to ride one, you can always pick it up again fairly quickly. :3

Re: Do you like Winter and why?

theblackdragon

i normally like winter due to christmas and my birthday/wedding anniversary all happening, and also because the weather cools off, but we'll see how much i like winter up here in NC. i froze up here this past January, no joke (and no fair laughing at me if you weren't born and raised in a tropical state )... i need to get some nicer warm clothing this year. brr.

Re: Games and DVDs Released on Tuesdays?

theblackdragon

there's both the sales/rental charts reason mentioned above, as well as the fact that retail sales generally slump mid-week, and new DVDs being out on Tuesdays helps to pick up the mid-week sales in general. That way, with retail releases in the middle of the week and new movies hitting theaters at the end, Hollywood sees a much more steady stream of revenue instead of end-of-week bursts. :3

And since most places that sell DVDs also sell games... it kinda makes sense that they'd want to receive all their electronics-area shipments on the same day (instead of scattered throughout the week), so perhaps that's how their DCs work it out for 'em? It's a thought. :3

Re: Where did my thread about political correctness go!?

theblackdragon

I deleted it. From the biased/inflammatory subject line to the first reply to the OP (filled with US-bashing), I did not see anything but a major (and possibly nasty) argument coming from that thread, so I chose to take it out early. If you feel I jumped the gun, N64 Gamer, I do apologize, but please understand that from the way it began, I could see no good coming from that thread at all.

... and now that we all know where that thread went, I'm locking this one. Mystery solved.

i have no idea what happened to your thread, dude. all i know is that it was still around before i went to bed last night. i did delete at least one inflammatory reply from it after it was all over... maybe the argument really didn't stop, and someone else just deleted the entire thread to be done with it all? i dunno. :/

I do know that Corbie has mentioned in chat that they're working on redoing the forum rules to add some clearer stuff about blog threads and homebrew discussion, though. You may want to e-mail him before restarting the blog thread entirely. :3

I wouild rate the 2-d Marios as such :
1. SM3

3. Super Mario World.

while i agree with SMB3 at the top of the list, are you really rating SMB2(US) higher than SMW? I can't stand it myself... I hope they remake it, because it did have great potential, but the 1up-slot-machine thing is too fickle (for me, anyway) and thus I always blow through my continues whenever I try to play it through without warping. The only playable version of SMB2(US) is the one included with Super Mario All-Stars, where you pretty much have infinite continues thanks to the saving option.

I continue to want to see a NSMB2, though. Picking things up and throwing them were fun, and I can totally see instead of two extra no-name toads, them having the princess and our favorite lovable Toad as playable characters. and Bowser taking a vacation and letting the normal SMB2 villains have at us would be quite the refreshing break. :3
