Actually, what I said was to move the discussion to the main Pokemon B/W2 discussion thread, not to just create a new thread for the same thing in GD. That said, I can't recall having a thread specifically for offering advice and suggestions about other players' competitive teams (as opposed to 'hey i'm using rattata, pidgey, and pikachu, what are you using'), so I'm going to leave this open.

Well, I still think this could have been said on the other Luigi's Mansion 2 thread. WiiU is still getting some big games, namely third party it seems, though you guys are getting Pikmin 3, which I wish we were getting on the 3DS.

There's nothing wrong with a LM2 thread in the Wii U section if people would like to brainstorm ideas how the GamePad could be used to enhance the LM experience.

that said, i'm right there with you re: pikmin for 3DS, i wish they were doing a 3DS version too :(

@Shiromikio - The digital version includes a PDF of the magazine, so it's not readable only on an iPad. And you get a free digital copy of the mag when you order a print version, so you can view it both as a PDF and a physical mag.

indeed, when you make your purchase you're given the option to download it right then to your PC if you like iirc :3

No advertising, the team admits it is making no profits from it, and it is a spiritual sequel to a magazine that Nintendo fans were apparently very upset when they heard was being discontinued,

And yet apparently $17 is 'too much.'

Well, folks, if you want to know the reason that print is dying, it's because of that. Cheap gamers that refuse to support the products they claim to love.

$17 is a lot right now, here in January when hours at work are being cut back, everyone's recovering from the spending frenzy of the December holidays and getting ready for tax season. It's a luxury to be able to splurge on the print version when there's a $5 digital version available, especially after being used to paying what, $25 for a year's subscription to a similar product? Deal with it. They are, and they're working to fix the price situation for us so that it's more reasonable.

Do something enough and your body will compensate for it. I've got a nice big lump of a callus on my right middle finger because I draw and write quite a bit, and I've also got a weird callus on my wrist due to the way i pop boxes open at job#1. If you truly play video games enough, that might be why your thumbs are different, Birdman, though it'd probably be more likely that tennis was what caused the differences in your hands due to the strain it puts on them during play (much more forceful than reaching for a D-pad or an analog stick :3)

Come on, guys, please be serious. If there's something you really want to see an app for on the Wii U that you think would enhance your experience with the console, feel free to post it, but if you're just in here to make cute jokes about how other devices already do all the things you want and stuff, please move along.

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.

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.
