@Jaz007: The Suikoden series is probably my favorite non-Nintendo franchise.

@Lan: my dad was a truck driver.

@lz: go to a fanboy convention? sure, why not? not only would i be getting paid, i'd be getting paid to laugh at fanboys :3

@Machamp_King: Falcon, please! They're beautiful birds :3

@Whirlpool: The internet is a tricky, and it's not like i go out of my way to broadcast the fact that i'm female to everyone, so no, it doesn't bother me when people make the assumption that i'm male. mistakes happen, it's not the end of the world. it does kinda amuse me when people get super-butthurt about it on my behalf, though, like i'm gonna go on a banning spree over it :3

@RogueBologna: What's a good question to ask me? idk, i'd guess that one's as good as any, lol.

@deliciousturtle: I'm sorry, you'll need to actually ask me a question in order for me to answer you about it~

@Jaz007: How many threads have I locked? I honestly have no idea, and there's no real way for me to pull up that information. However, a google search for 'theblackdragon' and 'sorry, this topic has been locked' pulls up a little over 3,000 hits (i'd imagine at least a third of those are duplicate hits for the same thread, multiple pages and all that) so take it as you will. As for how many times I personally have banned someone, again that's not information I can access easily either, I'd have to hand-count all the bans that have happened since moderators were given the ability to ban people (when i was first brought on as a moderator we had to e-mail an admin and have them do it). I can say that my first ban was in November of '09, there were about 211 bans that happened before i banned anyone, most of the bans we've had since have been done by myself, and we're currently sitting at a little over 2,000 banned usernames in our database (more than a few of those are evaders or attempted evaders, though, and a few are self-bans).

@Henry_Mask: Will I attempt a classic run of FE:A? I might, we'll have to see how i feel after getting through all the supports :3

@sir_Anthony: Why do I still use my xmas avatar? Because i'm too lazy to change it back.

@Ark_Sin: I will not be doing the Harlem Shake, sorry.

@TysonOfTime: Gangrel would make a great LJM, wouldn't he? though i'm not sure what use he'd get out of a Levin Sword, last i knew LJM's magic stat was pretty low >:3

@Jaz007: There are currently just over 40,000 users in our database in all. As for how many have avatars, i have no way of looking up that information, i'm afraid.

@Ark_Sin: er... i'm afraid i'm no woodchuck psychologist...

@Onikato: haha, that's a pretty good one. needs moar bacon though >:3

@playstationman: i don't really feel i've played enough GC games to have an actual favorite D:

@Konata: nope, sorry! i have no idea what Duck Dynasty is, but then i only have Hulu+ and Netflix, no cable. :3

@Ark_Sin: Doctor Who? No thanks. Currently i'm into Red Dwarf, though, if it helps :3

@JusticeColde: if i had a CD suddenly start skipping, i'd probably tap the player and get it to move on. :3

@Happy_Mask: three. i try to cut them down to three nested quotes whenever someone reports a comment for over-quoting.

@lz: pancake pizzas... probably because they sound gross :x

@CrimsonFire13: I haven't had the chance to watch Adventure Time yet, but I eagerly await its arrival upon Netflix or Hulu+ so i can see what all the fuss is about :3

@KodyWB-98: I enjoyed the first issue of NF very much. I still need to subscribe, I should do that soon :O

@Jaz007: My favorite non-gaming activity is probably drawing or reading.

@Ark_Sin: I have no idea what this 'chubby bunny' thing is, and i doubt i want to know, so 'no'. :3

@Jaz007: My favorite Nintendo franchise would have to be Mario, if only for SMRPG.

@CrimsonFire13: I have no real set schedule regarding how often I answer these questions — just whenever i get a pile of 'em i guess. Or whenever I'm not feeling especially lazy or too tired. :3

@Happy_Mask: My favorite FE:A weapon is probably Nosferatu, just because it kicks so much butt around the time Tharja shows up. Any glass weapon in Donny's hands is also good times :3

@Jaz007: No, I've never ducktaped someone to a wall.

@Ark_Sin: I have no idea what 'the flop' is.

@ogo79: i'd take Mario, Peach, Bowser, Toad, and Luigi. Everyone would be so surprised/horrified/weirded-out to see them all in person and in real life and all that i'd have a clear shot at the dessert table. :3

@Metal_Sonic: I'm a top-ranked channel surfer. :3

I think the arena scene is mine — that definitely got me into the game right there, seeing it in the demo. i really, really wanted to know what the hell was going on, haha :3

To be honest, they really put the shine on all of the cutscenes in this game, though. it's hard to choose just one D:

I'm a little late to the question of what we named our avatars, but I named mine Emory.

It doesn't really have significance, I just thought it sounded cool. Then again things were weird because of Emmeryn, with Chrom and Lissa being all "Em!" and I'm like "you called?" >:3

i actually found it weird because of our own Emmy here at NL... the events of chapter 9 were extra emotional because of that link in my brain lol D:

New as in to this thread? Because you've been here since before I've joined a little over a year ago, and I wouldn't consider that new. Also staff members can get banned? :o I'm genuinely confused...

for heaven's sake, i was joking around. i'm not really a fan of users jumping to the 'zomg you're gonna get banned for (whatever was done)' conclusion (let us do the moderating, thanks! :3) so i posted the 'really? :O' comment, and then TheConsonant apparently took me seriously, so i continued the facade. lighten up, take lz's example :3

back to the topic, i haven't been able to play for a couple days and it's killing me... damn you work :(

I think that's a bit of a stretch, I'm not really familiar with the rules here but I doubt posting pics of women in bikinis, that aren't even that revealing, would get banned. Maybe if they created a topic debating on who was hotter or perhaps if all a topic became was posting pics of bikini clad women; but then it would be more for spamming than anything.

Thank you Nintendolife You guys are great! and my one stop shop. Well sometimes I will watch a video review at youtube **Blushes**

there's no need for blushing, Windy — we appreciate it when people trust our reviews, but in no way do we expect to be someone's be-all, end-all answer guys regarding whether or not to pick up a game. Please, do all the research you can before making a decision, YouTube videos, reviews on other sites (it's why we link to Metacritic, guys!), ask your friends, ask everyone in the usual 'impressions' threads that pop up, etc. and so forth. Please do be as informed as possible when making a purchase! As long as you're giving us a glance along with everyone else, we're good ;)

@PeopleLovingSummerofBondsPics There's also a hot spring dlc episode, where everybody wears Japanese bath-wear clothing. Also, I find it funny how if the Summer of Bonds pictures actually weren't in the game, the users who posted them would be banned. :P

Pachter works for one of the most lauded analyst firms in the world and you, mr random internet dude, just claimed he is corrupt and engaged in illegal activities with no evidence whatsoever.

If I was Pachter and I saw that post I would be getting my lawyers to email NintendoLife to demand your contact details, because I'm about to make an easy defamation lawsuit.

i like how you say this as if this guy is the first person in the history of ever to have claimed that Pachter is a fool and shouldn't be listened to for whatever reason(s), backed up by solid evidence or not. if he's about to go after this person on our humble forums, he'd better be going after every single other person making the same claims on other sites that discuss his crystal-ball predictions.

that said, guys — please don't get personal with your arguments. keep them focused on the main topic of this thread and not each other. Also, if all you're interested in doing is sharing an image macro, please move on. Thanks in advance! :3

Casual for me. I'm not playing my game for anyone else, so i don't care about being a TROO FIRE EMBLEM PLAYAR ZOMG or not. i just want to see the story unfold and enjoy the support conversations, work on getting my doods up and exploring the DLC. And of course, if I change my mind and decide I'd like the added challenge, FE:A gives us the option to tailor it to our tastes. It's a wonderful game in that respect :3
