@jmets: sykotek is correct, the 'so many games' promotion is only for Europeans who qualify, not us here in the US. That said, in the future, to change your age on Club Nintendo you'll need your parents to call them and sort things out. They may be required to create an umbrella 'family' account in order to list you as a 'child', but the bottom line is that having your parents call Nintendo first is the only way to find out the proper solution. Good luck to you!

If you look at the description for the Feedback section of the forums, Eisenbolan, you'll see it clearly states the following:

Like something about Nintendo Life? Hate something about Nintendo Life? Tell us here.

You'll note that nowhere do we guarantee you'll receive a personal handwritten response or anything, it's just the appropriate section of the forums for you to sound off if you have any pressing issues. I'm afraid lz is correct — the editorial staff rarely have time to check the forums. We apologize if that bothers you, but there's not much we can do about it.

As for the answer to your question (regarding a request for any game review, really) a couple years back we had an active thread here where users were putting forth game review suggestions. If you'd like to revive that thread with your own suggestion(s), you're more than welcome to do so, but you'll note that there's a lot of games in there that our users would probably still like for us to review, and we've only got so much time in our day, y'know? We can't make any promises or guarantees. Perhaps you could try starting a thread about that particular game in the 3DS section to see if anyone took the plunge and could share their thoughts with you about it. Good luck!

@theStyleWithin: I'm afraid all the staff here are volunteers, we're not paid for our work. If you're interested in a reviewing position here, keep your eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages, as well as our main site from time to time — we usually put out announcements whenever we're looking for staff. You could also try using the Contact Form to try submitting a resume and writing samples if you don't want to wait for a position to be advertised and see what it gets you. Best of luck!

I actually liked the old PSX demo discs they used to have at Babbages/EB/GameStop... i remember that's how i fell in love with Threads of Fate, they gave me a demo disc when i purchased a different game. I wouldn't mind seeing that sort of thing again, even the demo discs popping up automatically in the same box as other games, the only thing is it seems like it'd be a waste of money/resources when they can just put any available demos on the eShop instead. it also seems a bit counter-intuitive when they've spent so much time hyping the eShops and trying to get people to use them to play those same demos (and of course do other things, like buy games lol)

@Mickeymac: Admins can delete accounts. We only do so on rare occasions, though, because it's very messy behind the scenes. We prefer to deactivate accounts where users have posted comments/topics on the forums and/or main site, though users with no posted content we generally have no problems deleting outright.

@kato: I'm afraid using my likeness won't come cheap. Don't worry, though, I accept payments in bacon :3 as for 'best bromance support dialogue', I've always been partial to rivals, so Vaike and Chrom are good fun — though Frederick and Chrom is quite amusing :3

@Tasuki: Thank you, Emmy made it for me. By the way, have you checked your e-mail recently? :3

@k8sMum: They haven't — unfortunately, we're only human, so we do miss some here and there (though we get 'em as soon as they're reported, or as soon as we stumble across them). I've been in contact with Ant about an automatic filter, but i don't know what the progress on that is or whether or not he'll actually implement it eventually, but I haven't lost hope yet. By the way, you're another one who needs to check their e-mail if you haven't recently :3

@True_Hero: the idea behind the gentlemen cat is a long story, really... it started with my use of ':3', which people weren't always sure about when i first signed up here. I'd been trying to use the monkeys from Yoshi's Island to illustrate that it was a mischevious sort of smile, but not everyone remembered them, so then i started likening it to a cat... and then I got a Backloggery and they rolled out the :gentlemen: emoticon which I quite enjoy using, and finally i forget if it was Vaynard or JayArr (it might've been Vay) who posted an image of a 'gentlemen cat' to my BL because they thought it was funny, and that was it. Emmy made my current avatar for me :3

@Happy_Mask: Just to reiterate, Emmy made my current avatar :3

@Konata: er... ok?

@MickMick: Unfortunately it wasn't serving to stop the problem, and whether or not Disney is racist is a pretty hot-button issue when it comes to his fans, plus iirc people had been posting examples to that thread, which wasn't cool. At that point I chose to edit that portion of the discussion out entirely, as it didn't belong here anyway. Don't worry, if you'd really been in trouble over it i would've contacted you to let you know or said something specific in-thread :3

@Erica_Hartmann: Hopefully you're not sick anymore, but sick people shouldn't eat junk food :(

@k8sMum: only if i get one too D:

@0SP_ZELDAIII: I believe I answered this question before, but it's this guy here :3

@CrimsonFire13: I'm very interested in it, but i may wait for reviews. I'm still not sure, to be honest :3

@RikuzeYre: Which games to purchase are totally on you, but the ones I'd recommend picking up would probably be SMRPG and FFIV, at least (whether or not you pick up FFIV: The After Years is up to you, but definitely at least IV :3)

@Whirlpool: Sure, not gonna bother lying about white lies or anything. We all gloss things over in order to get through a day smoothly. It's no big deal :3

@Gameday: 'sup mang, not bad. what's good with you? :3

@Jaz007: "Relax. You'll live longer." As for my therapist, probably LJM. It'd be fun to watch him spiral into some sort of malpractice lawsuit first-hand (do therapists even fall under 'malpractice'? haha~)

@OptometristLime: Done, but i had to remove the underscore because it was one letter too long that way :3

@HawkeyeWii: I'm afraid i haven't seen any of the Iron Man movies D:

@Mickeymac: I have indeed — I've been a fan of W ever since it first aired on Toonami back in the day, i used to have 0083 on tape, and i've seen a little bit of the original '79 series.

@Crazybrain1: I'm afraid I don't, because my husband is allergic.

@Ark_Sin: For the fourth time, Emmy.

@SomeBitTripFan: We've got a bit over 40,000 users in our database at this time. As for your avatar, I'm afraid it will be supplanted along with all the others. Sorry, can't go playing favorites or anything :3

@Whirlpool: I've got a few friended on FB and we all talk to each other about site-related stuff via e-mail, but that's about as far as we go, really. I've never met any other members of staff in person if that's what you're asking, but if you're just wondering whether i know who they are, then yes. :3

@lz: it's probably because i'm a dragon. people tend to look down on us reptilian types :(

@Hysterical: sure, why not~

@CapnPancakes: I'm perfectly happy with my accent as it is now, really :3

@CaptainSquid: Tiger attacks. I'll have you know I haven't been attacked by a tiger in the entire time I've had this thing, so it works pretty good i think :3

@Jaz007: I do, I just don't have time (and available funds) to devote to it the way i did back when i was younger.

@Ark_Sin: ... no thanks...

@Happy_Mask: I'll probably pick it up eventually. i just don't really have the time to sit around in front of a TV playing video games, that's why I'm more interested in my 3DS and stuff :3

@Jaz007: It really depends on the week... i can say that this past week I banned 29 user accounts total. However, of that number, 6 were spammers and 2 were potential spammers, 9 were trolls who most likely will not be coming back, 2 were genuine temp-bans because the users in question got out of hand, 9 were accounts created for the purpose of evading a ban, and 1 was a duplicate account created by a user in good standing. take that as you will :3
