it's funny you guys mention GS — when i stopped by there to pick up LM2 tonight, the dude behind the counter actually pulled out a Pikachu 3DS to let me know that they had some in stock. i would definitely try your local gamestops if target and toys'r'us are sold out of 'em, guys :3

@LJM: oh that reminds me... i think i forgot to mention that JP IS BACK YAAAAAY. No offense to that James guy, but... he just wasn't JP. Though I'm sad to see Chef Scott not there this year, some of my favorite HK moments have been Chef Scott getting into someone's face — like that time he got after Ben in Season 7 and told him to get off his pass, haha. effin' amazing~

@CrimsonFire13: It depends on the situation and how familiar I am with the people involved. I'm pretty shy in person.

@3DSonicPizzaHD: Considering that was one of my favorite cereals growing up, hell yes i can~

@Jaz007: It really depends on the game and how they're handled. I hated them in Okami — i think it was the second Orochi fight where you have to slash each of his heads, god i screwed that up so many times it wasn't even funny. And I remember The Legendary Starfy had a pretty cheap one where you had to tap the A button as fast as you could to complete the final boss battle, it came outta nowhere. I know there have been other games to handle them better, more in the natural flow of the game itself, but I can't think of any specific examples off top of my head at the moment. sorry D:

@Happy_Mask: The music in Xenoblade was absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I ever got tired of any of it, which is pretty amazing considering how quickly I can get bored of in-game music, lol. :3

@Sensei_PikPik: LJM, hands down. Sorry Groose_Lord D:

@LzQuacker: Since you've changed your name, though... it's LJM now :3

@Kylo: One thing I've worked hard to maintain the most in my life... that's actually a pretty good question. probably my stability.

@Happy_Mask: The best Batman IMO was Keaton. Bale did a decent job, but Keaton will always be my favorite, just like Jack Nicholson will always be my favorite live-action Joker, even though Heath Ledger did an omgamazing job in that role.

@Jaz007: I'm not a huge Linkin Park fan, and I had no idea who that was before looking him up on Wikipedia, so i'd have to say I don't really think about him at all D:

@JusticeColde: If I had 'the ultimate gaming skills', i still probably wouldn't have any free time to do much with 'em, so probably not.

@DeviousSnorlax: I would go for Chrome if it wasn't for the fact that Chrome doesn't have as good a screencap/screengrab plugin as Firefox does. Screengrab! has been the most easy-to-use plugin I've come across, and it does exactly what I need it to do, when I need to do it. Chrome has a plethora of screengrab-type plugins but all of them have problems/don't do everything I need them to do, so that's why I stick with Firefox.

@Ryno: I think 1997-ish was probably the last time I used that word in public, so let's go with that :3

@CrimsonFire13: I doubt it.

@Ark_Sin: I'm not a big fan of cucumbers. I like the way they smell in soaps and lotions, but then when i try to eat cucumber in a salad, the salad tastes like soap or lotion to me. I love pickles, though :3 I also love Nutella, but i don't really get to have it often.

@Kylo: Basset Hounds have always been a favorite of mine, and recently I've fallen in love with bulldogs (especially American Bulldogs, but English Bulldogs are adorable as well).

@ogo: well... yes and no. i mean, it's 'manly' in terms of potential blood and gore and epic fights, but then it's not really 'manly' in terms of the best vampire hunters being chicks and all (hello BtVS~) :3

@Tasuki: There was no mandate or order requiring staff to change their usernames to reflect their IRL names; there are other members of staff also going by pseudonyms. Some do choose to use their real name because it does look more professional to outsiders [read: industry professionals, devs, company representatives, etc.], but I'm not in this as a writer, so I don't really care what anyone looking in thinks of me. :3 I do use my real name during discussions behind the scenes, and I believe you've seen my 'official' e-mail signature because I've e-mailed you before, but while i'm here hanging out on the forums and stuff i just want to be plain old tbd.

yes, the 'Nintendo Classics' line was legit. as for whether all three of these items actually go together, though, i have no idea. have you tried playing the game yet to see if anything's funny about it? The only sites that have anything for 'snsp-mw-eur' all seem to be in German, that'd be an instant giveaway that something's wrong with this set :3

@theblackdragon : Yes, I beat Grima then went through all the ending slides where you have to look at your record. Then I sat through the credits, then i sat through all the after stories for each character. Then it asked me to save, which I did and transfered me right back to the main screen and from there I could either choose to continue my game against Grimma on the 3rd turn or start a new file. Even though I beat the game, can't i stay on my completed map?

wait, during the third turn of the grima fight? what difficulty are you playing? It sounds like you're trying to reload a bookmark or an in-battle save instead of your actual save file...?

@bdrum99: Did you save the game after you beat Grima? If not, and if you saved right before starting that battle, i'm not sure off top of my head if you can choose to exit it, so you may have to fight Grima again and make sure to save afterward. You should still be able to access your DLC and everything just fine...

ErnisDy, the problem is that this sort of topic has been done to death. You aren't alone, not by a long shot, but this sort of topic always winds up with users on both sides of the argument doing a lot ot useless tail-chasing, and nothing happens to alleviate the situation, so it can only get worse, never better. Again, you'd be better served by getting in touch with Nintendo proper.

i finally got around to trying the demo last night, and i liked it. i'm still not entirely sold on the 'kiddy' theme, i kinda wish they'd taken more from Bit.Trip Runner and not been so obvious about everything, but man did that queen bee fight throw me off. thankfully, Rhythm Thief had some minigames that were similar (showing yoiu the beat, then changing perspective), so it was just like riding a bike.

i'm still not entirely sold on it at its current price-point, though. it really depends on how long the actual game winds up being. i may wait for a sale — especially since i'll have LM2 to play by the time HK hits, and i'm still playing through my current FE:A file anyway. but i will be picking this up eventually :3

How would that work anyway, since she's already, uh, dead. Yet you can recruit her later...

UM, WHAT!?

I've been kinda thinking it has something to do with the whole time-travel and multiple-timelines thing that's been woven into the plot. i haven't played the DLC for myself yet, though, so idk how they choose to explain it :3
