I'm not buying, but I like the idea of the contest.

But WHY, WHY did NL have to make THIS GAME the main advertised game?

EDIT: Check this out: http://www.nintendolife.com/users/cypronia1 The dev got BANNED from this site...

NL didn't make an ad for this game, the people who serve our ads for us did. We do not have the ability to pick and choose what gets advertised here. It won't be here forever. Please calm down :/

@AlexSays: PMs are not happening so far as i've been told, however there is a plan in the works for comments to be left for specific users, possibly via profile pages or something. I'm really not sure on the specifics, i'm afraid.

You mean pictochat? If so, pictochat wasn't included with the 3DS, I'm afraid. The closest you'll have is Swapnote, which is a free download via the 3DS eShop. You can find details about Swapnote here, and if you need help using it or trading the special stationery after a while, this thread here is the place to be. Good luck! :3

I'm not sure anyone has ever mistaken any of your posts as being funny.

It's good to double-check though from time to time.

well I can't compete with unintentional comedy. I give up, you win.

If you can't change your router settings, you can always use the Nintendo WFC USB dongle on your computer to set up a NDS-accessible hotspot — the official ones are very rare now since they were discontinued, but you can pick up chinese knockoffs from eBay if you're interested.

@Kaysab: Nintendo's own website doesn't really specify what time, but since it's a NoE promotion, I'd say it's fair to assume that they'd be going by a European time zone, not an American one.

Xenoblade has excellent music, but if you're looking for a short game, it's not gonna be for you. my file was just shy of 100 hours when i beat the game, and i don't think i did but half of the sidequest-y stuff.

Wait, is this a Wii U questions thread or a Wii U questions and answers thread?

I'm not really sure. may as well be both, i guess, but maybe that'd make it more of a 'FAQ thread', idk :3

That said, @everyone_else — if y'all truly expect me to go around locking/redirecting to this one thread every single time someone comes in with a question, you've all got another thing coming. Similar questions I can redirect to a similar thread, but for heaven's sake it's a brand new console and it's going to take time before things settle down around here. I've been working to take care of the more prominent duplicate-thread offenders and Ant's working on something that may solve the 'endless Wii U questions clogging the forum' problem, but for now, your patience with the influx of newbies is greatly appreciated.

also, if you're not in the mood to answer them, just let someone else do it and move on, please. no one's twisting your arm to say anything if you don't want to :3
also, I'm totally gonna use SCAR392's post as an example whenever someone gets uppity about the way i do things, so thanks for that, mang :3

Also, is anyone actually doing the new game +? As soon as I saw the inventory, I just turned the game off. ._.

i've actually been considering it, especially because i just picked up a new HDTV and some component cables for my Wii back around Black Friday and i've been itching to see if the game is any more visually impressive with my new setup. D:

Our ongoing Xenoblade thread is here if you'd like to get in touch with everyone who's played it. To be honest, the game was very overwhelming at first, and i almost felt like you, but two hours is a drop in the bucket IMO. it took me quite a while to get the hang of the battle system, and gemcrafting takes practice, but the story is what drags you along — I wound up putting just shy of a solid 100 hours into my playthrough and i didn't do but maybe half of the sidequest-y things involved. It's really an amazing game IMO.

but anyway, ask away in the main thread, please :3

I never said 'majority,' I said 'broad gaming community.' Given the fact that the FFVIII characters are some of the more popular for fanfic and cosplay in the west, and given that Japan is the second largest market for games in the world, I don't see how anyone in their right mind can claim any definitive truth in saying 'these characters suck.'

(a) You used the idea of that list to welcome Reala 'to the minority'. How does that somehow not mean that you had meant the opinion of the persons used for that list to represent the 'majority'? I'm not following you there.
(b) Considering Fanfiction.net has about twice the FFVII fanfiction as FFVIII, your anecdotal evidence there may be a bit flawed. Since we're going anecdotal, though, you may also want to consider that some cosplayers choose characters just because they look pretty or their costumes are interesting. Looks aren't everything.
(c) Since when have 'truth' and 'opinion' ever gone smoothly hand-in-hand? Perhaps especially when a statement as subjective as 'i don't like this character' is involved; there are so many factors that can and do go into a personal impression of someone as a person or character it's not hard to imagine that perhaps there are people out there who disagree with whatever one person has to say. I can easily see how someone in their right mind can claim that a character 'sucks' without any provocation witnessed on my part. It's 'true' for them. Not my problem, and it's not yours either.

Half of the population in the world have them.

True, but it's also generally against the law for someone to go around displaying theirs in public for the sole sake of being as obnoxious as possible, especially when minors are involved.

A list vs your unsubstantiated opinion. Guess which one is more likely to accurately reflect the opinions of the broad gaming community?

I like how a list originating from Japan (thus reflecting Japanese opinion) represents the 'majority' of the world's gaming community now...?
