That's not proof, it's a rumor. Dependable or not, it's still unverifiable by its very nature, and I'll still believe it when I see it.

@calebwii: I just finished Moon a couple days ago... it was all right, I suppose. Kinda repetitive and boring... I did like reading all the descriptions of what was going on at the underground installation, but there wasn't a whole lot of story or character interaction to offset the boringness.

@KrazyKain: I am in agreement with AlexSays and The Fox... the touchscreen would more accurately reflect control via a tablet, and I've never been a huge fan of that even for normal mousing. I also wasn't a huge fan of accidentally touching an on-screen button when I was trying to just look around. Give me a keyboard and a good gaming mouse any day. :)

well First of all nintendo lies most of the time now a-days and second, Somebody from nintendo could of spilled the beans on it and it was only on whatever website he goes to.

if he got the FS dates from a website, it's not a very reputable one -- Google turns up nothing but a couple random forum posts where maybe one person names August 3 and July 31 (and one of them was our own IndianDan; the other one i didn't recognize the user) and two YouTube videos that both name TheEmulationZones as their source. That's it. Not Nintendo Life, not Kotaku, not GameSpot, not IGN/GameSpy/GameStats, not 1up, not NintendoWorldReport, not TheNintendo, not GoNintendo, not GameTrailers, not VGreleases, not GameFAQs, none of these websites are carrying an exact release date beyond 'summer' or 'Q4' (that's the IGN network's guess, apparently), so can you see why I'm a little skeptical?

Didn't he say a few weeks ago that he knows someone at NoE and his videoes so far are all correct.

He said a while back that it was the father of a friend of his, and so what if he's been right so far -- wasn't he saying that we'd be getting Kubos/Nalaku on the 13th? I don't care what dates he keeps repeating over and over; there's no way to know if he's telling the truth about all this or not because he's been asked over and over for proof and has not provided anything. No offense, but I don't believe some random kid on the internet when he says that he's got a friend whose dad is dropping dates that haven't reached any video game news websites yet, especially when Nintendo has taken action against companies for attempting to provide dates before release on their own games without permission (which I seriously doubt this guy would even have if he actually existed).

Also, he is spreading misinformation by saying that Nintendo said at E3 that Flipnote Studio would be released in both North America and Europe on those dates. Cammie said (and I quote): "Today, we can announce this simple movie-maker, called ... That's all she said! Nothing about Europe at all... we can assume they'll get it around the same time as NA, sure, but there's nothing definite at all yet... and certainly not any specific dates! :(

@TheEmulationZones: If Nintendo had really said 'August 3rd' at E3, how come no one reported it? Why would they say 'Summer 2009' in their big press conference and then change their minds all of a sudden later on at the same show? And worse yet, why are you the only one to bring this news to the masses, as opposed to any of the other big websites that had representatives at E3 and who (big surprise here) are not reporting the same date? You are guessing, dude, and your guess is as good as any of ours; please stop parroting your 'inside news' as absolute truth.

ooo ooo ooo a Star Fox where you could fight in teams with your friends against people over wi-fi, and with Wii Speak capabilities would be so awesome... though me and my friends would end up parroting 'do a barrel roll' the entire time because we're dorks like that :D

the small flat-rate box looks like it'd be plenty big to ship a couple of Wii or PS2 games, and it's only like $5. I'd say go for it, but make sure you have insurance or delivery confirmation put on it (so whomever's receiving your games can't be all 'oh, they never arrived, plz to refund nao', y'know). a plain padded envelope isn't going to protect much either.

I tried editing the EXIF data on some images to match pictures I'd taken on the DSi, and it didn't work. It's almost like there's some internal table on the DSi that tells it exactly which pictures were taken on it, even when the pictures from other cameras had been edited down to DSi size/quality/dpi before the EXIF data was altered and were renamed to take the place of images taken by the DSi that had been removed from the SD card via computer.

@Pegasus: there was no mention of this glitch in the NL review, and I avoid IGN when I can, so I had no warning before it happened. IGN mentions that the company who released the game was working on releasing updated cartridges with a version of the game without the glitch, but the used copy i picked up must've been an old cartridge.

Just checked ... The Count of Monte Cristo is on the UK version. Sorry I don't know about the other version ... in fact, I didn't realise it wasn't released in the US!
However ... I'm checking a copy of the book's chapters against the DS version's chapters .... it does seem like not all of the story is there. We had that problem when buying the book. It seems that not every copy of the book published has all the chapters. Something about when the original version was publish it was REALLY long, so the next time it was released, a whole lot of book was cut out. For years people thought those were the complete versions of the book. It wasn't until many years later that it was again released in it's entirety.
The paperback version is 1243 pages long, including the introduction, but not the footnotes. :-b Too much!! Sounds like he needed a good editor.

The unabridged copy I've got has 1462 pages... sounds like someone cut some material from your copy already. As for 'too much', bite your tongue! Every last detail of The Count of Monte Cristo is absolutely fabulous and deserves to be read. :D

you just go up to the register of the place you got it from -- say, Target or Wal-Mart -- and ask to reload the card. you should be able to use cash or debit (i don't know if they'd allow you to reload it via credit card) but the only place the gift cards would be useable is the store they're for, which is a drawback to doing that, kinda. :)

and yes, it should be a Reloadable Prepaid Card that you're going for. If you get a Gift Card on accident (a Visa Gift Card, for example), it won't have as much functionality as the reloadable prepaid card, which you can link to direct deposit, you can get cash from an ATM, and you can pay your bills with online if you like. be aware, though, that you must be at least 18 to purchase the reloadable prepaid card, a restriction which does not exist for the gift card, and there may also be slight fees involved in using the service. :3 read the fine print on the card's packaging to find out exactly what's up.
