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...?

@penderri: I'm not sure what advertisements or articles you read, but Nintendo's own website clearly states the dates and other restrictions of the offer. I'm sorry you were disappointed, but if you have any actual message for them, you'd probably be better served contacting them directly. Good luck to you!

Xenoblade does indeed require the nunchuk if you're using the wiimote setup. I'm wanting to say you can use the classic controller if you want instead, but it's one or the other, not just a wiimote.

@CosmiC: A quick google search shows that this isn't the first time chicken vertebrae would have shown up in a bucket of KFC. the OP might get an apology, but srsly when eating meat that's been processed in a factory, expect to see some extra bits of the animal you're eating show up from time to time. it's all part of being a lazy omnivore.

it could easily be from a chicken. they use young birds, they don't exactly breed 'em for bone mass so much as muscle mass.

@fashionidiva1: if you don't have a piece for a set taste, don't give up! sometimes you can get away with subbing out a similar taste item so long as you've got everything else — contemporary pants with a male luxury outfit, for example, or a feminine skirt with a female luxury outfit. As long as it's just like one piece, you could wind up getting away with it, so definitely give it a try. :3

@Intrepid: What browser are you using? In Firefox, at least, there's a little pattern of dots in a triangle-ish shape toward the bottom right-hand corner of just about any text-input box on any page that lets you resize it however you like, and I'm wanting to say Chrome is the same but i'm not sure off the top of my head.

3D isn't worth your eyesight. I can't use it for very long, it gives me awful headaches. The graphics on the 3DS are already better than the DS alone without being in 3D.

As for 'how safe is laser surgery', that's a question for your eye doctor. Only a doctor can tell you whether you are a candidate for laser surgery, and after that the research is up to you. Please consult your eye doctor, and not Dr. Internet, who is known for handing out horrible advice.

bottom line: only purchase official Nintendo products for your consoles. I'd take it back and try to get a proper one if I were you :(
