Anyway, if Nintendo is so concerned with pirating, they should have made their consoles region-free.

But aren't Sony consoles region-free? I'm not seeing where they (or Microsoft, even) are any less impacted by piracy than Nintendo...?

geez, i thought this thread died D:

@turtlelink: DC, because batman trumps all.

@LJM: What would I do that for? cheese is awesome and goes great with burgers :3

@paperluigi: i don't know

@Happy_Mask: flosswaffles are waffles made of floss, you silly. and if you think we don't have any of those sorts of threads around anymore, you're not looking hard enough :3

@Chrysalis: My favorite pokemon for a long time was Gyarados, but after B/W2 I must say I've had quite a lot of fun with an Emolga I was given. its so adorable~ My team where I left off was an Emolga, Lapras, Leavanny, Lampent, Croagunk, and Pawniard, but I also had a Magnemite that I caught and especially adored for some reason. I think I may also have had a Ferroseed, i can't remember right now. I believe i left off at the point where I had to go after some dragon trainer and i got lost and bored, so i wound up going back to the Studios and doing some more movies :3

@TheDreamingHawk: I do have a husband.

@Macaronius: judging from your user avatar... sorry, nope.

@Tricoloryoshi: meh, it's ok. :3

@TheDreamingHawk: Threads like that fall under the 'When replying to a topic, don't; unless you have something meaningful to say or something that will contribute to the discussion' rule — since it's not really a discussion, it's just a waste on our servers.

@CapnPancakez: At this point in time, my favorites would probably be SMB3 (NES), SMRPG (SNES), Mischief Makers (N64), Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii), Tetris (GB), SMAdvance4: SMB3 (GBA), Radiant Historia (DS), and MK7 (3DS).
note: these choices are subject to change at any given time, and chances are i'll say something else the next time you ask me, so don't quote me on these plz :3

@turtlelink: theblackdragon is meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~

@TysonQ7: idk what that is, sorry :3

@mieu-fire: you're cute enough to be an ornament, so sure, why not :3

@paperluigi: what 3DS XL design should we get... i think I'd like to see one for Pikmin (accompanying a Pikmin 3DS game, of course~)

@Happy_Mask: I'll get a Wii U when i have the funds. it won't be anytime soon, I'm afraid :(

@True_Hero: What will my first Wii U game be? idk what'll be out by then, so we'll see! :3

@Pikminsi: Yes, I played the original Portal on PC. It was good times for sure :3

@Chrysalis: I loooooooove waffles D: D: D:

@Jaz007: I currently have two SNESes and a PSX in storage, the Wii hooked up to the TV, my DSi and my 3DS. My number one game moment or scene at the moment... probably the end of case 4 of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. I've had the game on my mind lately, it might be time to play it through again :3

@Alien_Mosky: idk, I've never tried. I've heard that admins can't ban one another, but I haven't tested it for myself tbqh.

@Magi: Nintendo could also enforce Germany's laws regarding PEGI 18+ rated games in Germany alone, but I don't see him campaigning for any change there because in that case, the decision matches his personal moral values. Only when it inconveniences him is he suddenly outraged and suggesting ways to change (which likely won't happen, lord knows Nintendo hasn't done well with partnerships in the past), where before he couldn't have cared less whether a niche title reached the west or not, and I find the lack of consistency quite amusing.

wait, so Nintendo's 'protectionism' is okay when it comes to the whole German-laws-enforced-where-they're-not-required thing, but it's not okay in this case?

I am talking about economic protectionism here: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protectionism

It's a Bad Thing, borderline unethical, for corporations to do it. It's also not the same thing as when a company protects itself from reputational and legal damage.

I thought you were a fan of companies protecting themselves and their monetary bottom line, though, even in the face of disgruntled fans? or are you just a fan of that happening only if you're not the one inconvenienced? you've shown quite the lack of sympathy in the past for other users complaining about niche titles not making it westward.

@WhiteKnight I was only talking about different types of 'reviews'. Not 'critical reviews'...you keep assuming I'm arguing against what makes up a 'critical review'.

Well, yeah, considering this thread is about critical reviews, it's easy to expect everyone is one the same channel.
To be honest, using the "I was talking about x, you assumed I meant Y" card is not nice.

look at the thread title. there's nothing about criticism there. granted, reading the original post very thoroughly and knowing the OP a bit better might have tempered his replies to the thread a bit more toward criticism, but his replies jumping in from the thread title and perhaps going from a few of the latter comments are understandable IMO. i can see very easily where a misunderstanding may have occurred and then snowballed.

@SCAR392: Why not recommend he storm Nintendo HQ with a herd of wild elephants and hold Miyamoto at dagger-point until he agrees to end region-locking forever? or how about building a giant static electricity generator, persuading all your friends to form a human chain from it to you, and then infiltrating Nintendo HQ and zapping everyone into submission? All three scenarios are about as plausible. :3

@Jeremyx7: if you want information about a game from a completely unbiased source, read an instruction manual. if you want to read someone's opinion about a game they've played, read a review. If you're worried about someone's bias not matching your own, the best thing you can do is find a reviewer who consistently rates games you enjoy highly and then get their opinions on other games you're interested in (if they aren't reviewing them, hit them up on Twitter or Facebook or a comment thread, usually there's some way to contact any given reviewer).

@Mowzle: if they want you to fit their 'style' and don't give you any hints, try and match the clothes they're currently wearing — that's worked for me, anyway. you get a feel for which clothes are which after a while, and look at their budget, too, especially if you like to sell luxury duds :3 also, some clothes will fall under multiple categories (a particular Cantata Modo skirt might pop up under both feminine and girly, for example) so that can help you to narrow down your possible categories to search under. I've even had people accept clothing from another style that matches a color they're wearing (some dude went for a shirt i showed him and said that blue was his favorite color even though it was contemporary and he was probably looking for basic), so it's at least worth a shot.

also, regarding assistants — they're pretty useless if you ask me, just another mannequin, lol. i think i've had only the one girl actually sell something (you'll know when they do because they'll tell you they put the money into the register, and also whether you're out of the item(s) in question so that you can buy more).

as for what to do with those mountains, they could maybe use the dirt/rocks/soil/whatever in places to curb erosion, some to build the sky-rises and whatnot they plan to build in the mountains' place, who knows what they could do with all that dirt.
