@Happy_Mask: I'm not sure how everyone else Nintendo Lifes, but while I'm Nintendo Lifing, I prefer to have a drink in at least one of my hands. :3

@sir_Anthony: I'd have to assume Ant was the one who came up with the idea for Nintendo Life, since NL was his portion of the big site merger back in '09. :3

@Kyloctopus: I do have my instagram listed on my profile, I post drawings and stuff there sometimes if you're interested.

@TheLilK98: Yes, I'm sure it's from drawing.

@CaptainMorpheus: Diet Mountain Dew~

@Absolute_Zero: Mudkips are ok, i guess. i don't really find them adorable or anything though, and I've never had one in my party, so idk :3

@Machamp_King: I've hoped that some rumors have been true, but outright believing a rumor is folly.

@Nibelilt: I've seen a few people talking about Skylanders, but not many. I guess it depends on how truly bratty you can be :3

@uel: Everything's always about 50-50, one person will hate what another person loves. If we're talking in terms of 'what one game can you not believe received general critical acclaim' (critics don't really represent 'most people, btw, they've just got a platform and a voice and are using it to say things about something, for good or ill), I just took a glance through Metacritic and Kirby: Canvas Curse caught my eye. I could not stand that game at all, lol, and I know I've heard other people here talking about how great they thought it was, so I guess I'll go with that for now. :3

@SomeBitTripFan: There's really a lot of great game stories out there, I don't think it's possible for me to choose only one. For a very long time it was the arc of Suikoden I and II (I kinda continues through II if you have the save data, the character interactions will change and you can pick up some other stuff), which only barely edged out Chrono Trigger for the top spot. then I played the Phoenix Wright games and love love loved them all. Radiant Historia blew my ever-loving mind, holy crap. Crisis Core was a tragic masterpiece (FFVII is an okay story, but CC was freakin' brilliant). The latest video game story to absolutely, positively leave me blown away, though, was Xenoblade, hands-down.

@CaptainMorpheus: Depends on what we're talking about — Nutella won't really go well with seafood, for example :3

@TheDreamingHawk: 'freedom of speech' is something that doesn't really exist on the web unless you're running your own site and/or forums and are setting your own rules (and even then your ISP may choose to shut you down if they don't like what you have to say or if what you have to say breaks laws to which they are subject). people tend to forget that when they're in the middle of cussing out other users. As for how I feel about enforcing the rules here and stuff, it changes from day to day. sometimes it's more like babysitting, other times it's like detective work (which I find kinda fun). i never really know what any given day will bring, really.

@Kyloctopus: I'm about as excited as I was about Kirby's Epic Yarn... which isn't much. I'll need to see what they have to show us about it come E3 before I get hyped or not.

Hello Shawn. If you don't ever want her to hate you or talk about you in a negative connotation, I would let her go. I can't tell you the number of girls IRL I know who can't stand their ex simply for the fact that they won't leave them alone and move on with their lives.

Hanging on to the past prevents growth and moving forward. I say don't do it. But you know the situation and your ex better than I do. I'm just letting you know how some girls I know IRL feel about this sorta thing.

listen to this man, for he is wise and his words are truth. perhaps this valentine's season you can find another girl to hang out with? it's one thing to remain on good terms with your ex, but it's another to write a fantasy tale about Valentine's Day with her...

idk, i don't know her or you IRL so i can't say for sure what you should or shouldn't do. you know her best, and i guess you'd know how she'd react to a gift like what you're planning (though as Tasuki mentioned you run the risk of her not knowing your gift upon seeing it and possibly ignoring it or throwing it away). if you do decide to go through with it, it'll either work fabulously or it'll creep her the ever-loving heck out, so prepare for the worst and hope for the best if you go for it, i guess. good luck!

I think one way to alleviate people's dissapointment in this, at least for me, would be to allow people who bought the game on the Wii to upgrade their games before the games become available on the Wii U's VC. That would be a nice little bonus for supporting the VC on the Wii.

or, they could let you have access to the games in question years before they finally become available as Wii U VC titles. sounds like a helluva bonus to me!

That's what I meant. And if they did that I would have absolutely no problem paying the upgrade fee. Who knows how long it will be before some of these games get released again lol.

er... you kinda missed my point. You've already had access to most of your Wii VC collection for years prior to their re-release as Wii U VC titles. That's your 'bonus' if you choose to pay the buck (or buck fiddy, idk) to upgrade to the Wii U VC version. :3

I'm pretty sure Nintendo doesn't freeze your eShop account due to inactivity... i've let mine sit for months at a stretch with no problems.

that said, they may have been talking about 'freezing' as an issue back when the 3DS was first released because it was an issue — people were having their 3DSes freeze on them or throw the Black Screen of Death all the time, or at least that's what people flipping out about it on the forums were saying, lol. i don't remember Nintendo ever officially acknowledging it, though...? either way, i'm sure they'll be able to answer your question later.
