I'm afraid the bottom line is that we just don't know, theworldgamer. You might try contacting Nintendo in your region and asking them to see if they give you a straight answer. Good luck! :3

@Mac: I kinda see them as a visual aid, almost like screenshots or something. a high average on Metacritic will likely have me take closer looks at the reviews, same as pretty screenshots. If the screenshots or score are unflattering or uninteresting, i may pass it up for something else I'm more interested in until I have the time to go back over the reviews and really give the game in question the consideration it's due. i don't bother trying to agree or disagree either unless there's a gigantic storm brewing in a comment thread someplace and I feel the need to toss in my two cents' worth, but even so it's not something i'd bother fighting to the death over like some people do, lol. i've got too much on my plate to get bogged down over something that silly :3

to be absolutely honest, if I had to nail down the thing that would sway me the most to purchase a game I'm kinda on the fence about, hands-down it'd be what my friends are playing and whether they like it. I've been persuaded into buying all kinds of games just because i had nothing else to play at the time and a few of my friends had picked it up and were talking about it, reviews be damned.

@Geonjaha: when are discussions started by 'lol why only a 7' not backed up afterward? it's the same situation and the same arguments, just one will begin with a number and the other will begin with a black-and-white positive or negative recommendation posted by a user.

... but they've led to people not actually reading the review itself, Metacritic's existence and constant arguments (not over the game itself or aspects of it, but simply the number someone applied to it).

to be fair, how many of the people who only read the number at the end of the review would actually be reading every last detail of the review in the if that score wasn't there? there's no way to know for sure; you can lead a horse to water, but you can't force him to read anything you've written. besides, people wanting a 'yes' or 'no' answer would still be asking for recommendations in the comment threads, and the arguments would still wind up happening when users disagree.

Also, Gregor and Nowi: yay or nay?

anyone plus Nowi kinda creeps me out tbh — that's why i paired her with Donny this time around, and I think i'm gonna pair her with Ricken next time. all she really does is play, though, so her supports aren't really out-and-out amusing or anything... i feel it's almost a waste to spend one of your available males on her. Kinda wish she acted more like her daughter. Gregor's as good as anyone else, i guess — and since he's probably the oldest guy in your group, he's probably the closest to her 'true' age anyway.
sorry to anyone who likes and/or married her, 's just how i feel about 'er D:

hey guys. we all miss James, but complimenting and/or praising him at the expense of others doesn't do him justice. just sayin'. :/

I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread now, since it's pretty much an extension of the Favorite User thread (I'm sure you all know where to find it, I've seen most of you post there from time to time). If you really want to keep on in the spirit of what James brought to NL (and still does bring in his occasional comments, he's not dead, you guys), remember that above all he wanted people to just be excellent to one another.

@SkywardLink98: lol everyone tells you to go to bed or whatever if you visit the Barracks, depending on what time of day it is. I think that's Nintendo's answer to the usual 'don't forget to take a break!' interruptions they've been inserting into other games lately — every so often your barracks will light up with a new thing for you to watch on the top screen, and the bottom screen will remind you to take a break or suggest that you may be getting tired after a long session of play.

It's similar to Chrono Trigger in that it deals with time-travel and there are (many) different 'endings' to the game you'll see as you make your way through, but the battle system is different (it's not your average turn-based system) and I think the story is a bit more mature (though both are excellent). You'll understand more after you've gotten through a chapter or two. :3

A score is just an extension of the review itself IMO. it's a quick way for me to gauge whether or not a game is worth looking into at all, or how hard I'll need to read through the reviews in order to make sure it's really the choice for me. It saves me time and hassle regarding the chaff, and if there's a diamond left in the mid-to-high range rough, I'll root it out eventually.

iirc he did because he didn't want the temptation to accidentally spill things he shouldn't — plus it didn't help that people kept asking him things he couldn't answer anyway. :(

@WingedFish: I think you mean 'admitted', haha :3

So has anyone been paying attention to their barracks? I've been noticing things get added every so often when you pick up a new character, especially if it's one of the kids. I wish you could take a few steps forward and really see the inside of the room, it's hard to see those staves right in front of the window for instance, but i am loving all the little touches they've crammed into this game. so much fun~

Also, I married Cherche and Gaius (d'aww, he takes care of her, how adorable~), and i picked up Kjelle this morning. She's a fun one :3 I'm also working on getting myself up through the Dark Flier ranks, and a few of the other women in my ranks are currently going through the Wyvern Rider/Lord classes to pick up stats and skills.

@Raylax: a 'series' in terms of a TV show is only used interchangeably with the word 'show'. For example, 'House' is a 'TV show' or a 'TV series', 'I think House is a great show' or 'I think House is a great series', either usage is acceptable. the term 'series finale' is only ever used for the very last episode of a television series, and depending on how popular the series in question was ratings-wise it may be a major TV event, lol. that's why i say i get what that particular user was trying to say with the analogy even though he was factually incorrect, to an uninformed person it may seem like a running in-joke whenever Jeremy says something about it being the 'series finale', like they're pretending to expect the show not to be picked up for another season (though it's so awesome none of us can see that happening :3)

As for seasons, a 'season' can be a full 20-26 episodes, it can be split into halves of 10-13 episodes with a month or three hiatus in between, it can be the first few episodes that were released in the same year and then followed by full, regular seasons after the show was picked up by some random network (Mythbusters is a show with a strange first season like that iirc). a normal 'season' is the year's run of episodes for a given TV series, though, and during the season they'll be shown at the same time each week except for the occasional special event (like during the Olympics, other channels may just show reruns or recap shows so that first-run episodes aren't trying to compete, lol). :3
