according to the Hatena press release:

Hatena wrote:

Free, safe, easy-to-use and family oriented: Flipnote Hatena

Flipnote Hatena is a free, safe and easy-to-use online service that
allows users to upload their clips to the Internet to share with
friends, family and the whole world. Users of the website can easily
flag contents for removal which violate the community guidelines or
are otherwise socially unacceptable in order to maintain a safe
environment for users of all ages.

IGN also reported a while back that there's a 30-minute lag between uploading your flipnote and being able to see it on the website/application viewing area or whatev', so I'd imagine there's some kind of reviewing going on before it's given the green light, too. i suppose you won't know how they'll receive your animations until you try to upload them. :)

dude, i've known people who have graduated college and became burger flippers. there's no shame in getting by until something better comes along, and there's also no shame in making a career out of doing things other people think are beneath them.

No I don't know for sure, but it always seems to be the case now.

'seems to be' is one thing, 'is' is another. to automatically believe the worst about others gets us nowhere. :)

You should check out System F/Ferry Corsten's stuff. Paul Oakenfold has some stuff that's all right, but he gets more into the slower House stuff a lot, and I prefer my techno/trance to be faster than that. :)

If you like AVB, Above&Beyond, and Tiesto, you would also probably like Velfarre's Cyber Trance series... seriously, torrent you up some of those albums if you get the chance (they're not available in the US so far as I know). To be honest, the best trance CDs I own, I got while I was in Japan. look out for Avex Trax/Avex Trance, too. :)

like i said in the other thread, Spong.com seems to be hosting an official-looking press release. GamersDailyNews.com is hosting the same thing, but they don't have the same contact info and stuff at the end like the Spong.com version (and like every other press release Nintendo has ever put out lol).

I wish NoE had a good press site like NoA does... nintendo-europe-media.com sucks. also, flipnote.hatena.com does exist, but it requires a special username/password to get in at the moment (or else it gives you a 401 Authorization Required error).

this is so exciting. it's about damn time. :)

Would you please expand on this? I was thinking of buying that game and would like to know your opinion, if you don't mind.

It got pretty grueling toward the end. The game kinda stacks things against you to the point where you absolutely have to merge yourself new demons and copy new skills before each major battle in order to stay ahead of the enemies... attempting to grind (like in other RPGs) won't get you very far, because you get crap for XP in battle if you go back in just to grind. I can't stand the merging thing; I'm the kind of person who got their team of Pokemon set up early on in R/B/Y and didn't change them out at all throughout the entire rest of the game (unless I had to for HM reasons or because I absolutely needed more of a certain type in order to win whatever battle), y'know? The idea of up and disposing of a demon I worked hard to set up in battle in order to create another one entirely made me feel kinda bad, but either way, it's like you do some story stuff, you merge demons/learn you some abilities by fighting a random battle or three, and then you fight the real battle. Repeat. Wipe hands on pants.

And it's not like the battles are over quickly, either... you're in a battle for a good fifteen minutes at least on average, I'd say (and I would bet I'm guessing on the low side of that scale, especially the farther in you get, and I'm also not taking do-overs into consideration). There's nothing terribly exciting about most of the battles in the game. Some have somewhat interesting terrain/obstacles to deal with, or objectives that change over the course of the battle depending on what happens, but when you're just trying to learn abilities in random battles and earn money to buy demons to merge, it's so boring... it kinda gets to the point where all you want to do is skip the battles just to get back to the story, which is honestly interesting.

If you're a huge strategy RPG fan, I'd say go for it (some people are really into that kind of thing I suppose :3), but I just remember I'd be in the middle of a battle and thinking of other things I could be doing that would've been more fun, and then I'd rush to get the battle over with just so I could shut the DSi off and do those other things. Seriously. I was that bored. D:
