Wow. Good job. You've identified one of the few things that would actually make this franchise worse.

thirded. Half the fun of this game is being able to catch and freely trade pokemon to other players... if it went the Skylanders route, the only way to catch a new pokemon would be to buy a new figure from the store (talk about a logistics horror, they'd never be able to keep them in stock!), and the only way to trade one to a friend over the internet would be to physically send them your figure and hope the postal service doesn't lose either your figure or their figure in the process. You'd also have to worry about having an extra peripheral connected to your handheld in order to read the information from your figures every time the game loads, making what was previously a very portable handheld series into something that's not as easy to bring onto a plane (where space in your bags is incredibly valuable!) or on a road trip (god forbid you accidentally forget one of your precious pokemon at a McDonalds somewhere along the way to grandma's house two states over, lol). it'd be an all-around nightmare, and there's no way it would have become the beloved series it is now if it had started off the Skylanders route.

that said, I could see them coming out with a spin-off series of some sort, but a main-series Pokemon game using figurines instead of catching and trading your own in-game? quickest way i can think of to kill the series.

If you're looking for our Revelations FC-trading thread, it's right here, and our Mercenaries FC-trading thread can be found here. If it's KI:U action you want, the FC-trading thread is here (and there's an active group in this thread here if you'd like to try joining in on their games), and the most active MK7 thread we've got is the Weekly Tournament thread here, I'm sure they'd love to have you join them too. Good luck! :3

If you're seeing those, you have adblock on still and don't realize it, or you may have thought you set your filters correctly to allow ads from NL and failed. Make sure your adblock is set to 'disable on nintendolife.com' and you should be good to go.

Tasuki's ideas are good, I'd give those a try.

It seems silly if Nintendo isn't including updates on the disc anymore, I know they did that with Wii games, certain ones would come with on-disc updates that wouldn't allow you to play the game before you accepted the latest update.

Alright, I am now annoyed with blind users. Since when did I ever say it was a Children's book?

Ill give you the facts straight up, its not a children's book, more of a teens/adults book. I'll let the reading take over.

It won the Red House Children's Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award (given to works of children's literature) in 2007. I'm glad you think so highly of it that you'd rate it for teenagers, but it's still considered a children's book by the rest of the world.

Your attitude is not necessary, both in this thread and in others across the forums recently. I'd appreciate it if you'd calm down in general and start playing nice with your fellow users, CosmiC.

I can't see something like this being a main-series game; they've got a great formula that's worked for well over a decade now. i might be interested in something like this, but only if it's more a straight JRPG-style game instead of something like Ranger, Mystery Dungeon, or Conquest. We've focused mainly on the Pokemon and the collecting and/or team-building aspects of the world for so long, it might be neat to focus on the people for a change. What kind of story would they choose to tell, though?

it's already expensive enough, and including a hard drive may have pushed too many consumers over the edge if the price reflected its inclusion. i think they were kinda between a rock and a hard place, and leaving it up to the consumer to purchase one or not was probably the smarter decision pricewise.

try taking the screen protector off and see if there's anything that was underneath it... sometimes if the edges are loose, little bits of crud or dust can find their way underneath. if your touchscreen operates normally or calibrates ok without the screen protector on it, you just need a new protector is all.
