@CrimsonFire13: I'll clean it out in a minute and then reopen it, but for heaven's sake i've got dinner here i've been trying to eat for twenty minutes now and I had to stop the reports from rolling in about that stupid argument going on in there. please. just let me eat my effing dinner.

That said, you do bring up a side-issue that happens a lot around here — you guys seem to want to claim ownership over threads, and that's not really how things work. You create a thread on the forums, it's the property of the community. If the community trashes it, it'll probably wind up locked. i've seen people on these forums try to snipe each other for 'ownership' of a given discussion topic, they'll put up 'placeholders' while they're busy typing up the actual meat of the original post, and it seems like the silliest thing in the world to me.

this certainly does bring up an important question; how much are you willing to pay for games? it seems to me that the newer and cleaner the games and consoles get, everything starts to cost more. it all depends on where we draw the line on what is or isn't too expensive. i don't think anyone would pay more than $60 dollars for a console game. i think $60 is still expensive. i always buy my games used and at retail, that way if i don't like it i can return it or resell it. i don't want the money i spent going to waste! the economy is rough, so i doubt gamers are willing to pay anything above $60. as for 3DS games, i think $40 is a fair price.

I remember paying $60 for PSX games back in the day when i had my first real job and all. That's probably my limit for home console titles nowadays as well.

that's probably about my price limit as well. then again, i only buy physical copies if i can, so i know i can trade them in afterward or resell them. if we were talking eShop retail downloads, my price limit is probably around $30-ish, and it'd better be a damn good game since I'm stuck with it, lol.

@SkywardLink98: Whether the review is 'ruined' or not is all in the eyes of the reader — a reviewer tackling an established series with no concept of what came before, seeing things through brand new eyes, they could think that series staples are zomgsoamazing when in reality they're just rehashed iterations of what came before that may or may not deserve a passing glance. Their review would be great for someone to read if they, too, had no concept of the series or expectations regarding the game whatsoever, but a long-term fan would find such a review useless, as they'd probably want to see what the game holds in store for them, someone who's played everything that came before.

There's just no way to please everyone as far as something so subjective as a review is concerned, it's almost foolish to try. It's one of those things where you can only do your best and hope you don't get bitten too hard for your efforts.

@DaveGX: no, i mean 'criminal' in terms of the court system. as far as i know (and The_Shpydar may be able to shed some light on things since he's actually a lawyer, lol) patent infringement is pursued in the civil court system. there's a difference in how cases are handled and stuff, the continued references to police and brutality and violence from SCAR392 don't really apply to this situation. yes, accidental or not, something was used without permission and technically it would be theft, but they're arguing over the value of what was stolen (and which will be reimbursed to the patent holder so that he is made whole again), not potential jail-time.

@SCAR392: Your analogy makes absolutely no sense. It's like you're trying to claim their absolute innocence when the court system has ruled otherwise, and believe me when i say that Nintendo has an amazing team of lawyers on retainer in order to have weathered the storms of piracy, copyright infringement, and patent trolling they're hit by all the time. If a jury ruled in favor of the other guy, there had to have been some serious infringement there that deserved some recompense — whether to the extent awarded by the jury will be haggled via appeal, but however unintentional the usage of someone else' patented technology, that someone else needs to be compensated.

I do not understand your level of distrust regarding this issue. You keep talking about cops and criminal offenses, but this is not a criminal case. it's all white-collar stuff. there's no violence in this case at all.

pretty much this. patent infringement is pretty cut-and-dry, no one's getting thrown into the clink or anything, nor were the police likely involved for any of the process. civil court isn't the same as criminal.

They can only have one S support, regardless of spouse/companion.

no no, i meant they're brother and sister in my file since my avatar married Chrom, but i'm pretty sure i saw an S-level support conversation available for them, so I was wondering if i could see that conversation and then marry them both off to other people.

also i totes forgot about marrying Chrom off to other people and having him be their dads too, lol. either way, thanks for answering that question, guys — i'll be sure not to S-support any related pairs in my main file :3
