Re: User Profile Changes

@TheDreamingHawk: This is a UK-based site. We understand that you prefer the US style of date formatting, and that's fine, but please, this isn't the first time I've seen you throw a fit over it in a comment thread, and it's not necessary. We've been very consistent about using the European style of date formatting, and we've made it easy to understand in the dropdowns by using ordinal numbers and the names of the months instead of bare numbers for you to pick from. If you don't want to open yourself to sarcasm from other users about it, don't be deliberately obtuse.

Re: Nintendo Wii U Gamepad has no Range!

theblackdragon

That's a pretty good question, to be honest. I'm sorry you're disappointed in your gamepad, Nitendnut, but this really isn't the correct section of the forums for this thread.

Re: Sending Wii U in for repairs upon the Nintendo reps request. Please help.

theblackdragon

if you want to cancel the repair, call them.
if you decide you want to set up a repair again, call them.
if you pull your Wii U off its shelf by the AC cord OR spill any kind of drink onto your gamepad and it still works, thank your lucky stars.

hopefully that's this and your next couple topics answered. if you've still got butterflies about anything regarding your new system, please feel free to use the main Wii U US launch thread. enjoy! :3

I can see plenty of different opinions here regarding this matter so I will she'd some light on what I am doing. I am keeping the Wii U from toys R us, I have done the right thing in my eyes and let them know what has happened and they have given me the console off their own back as a good will gesture. The Wii U console I have bought from zavvi will still be getting bought but I am going to give it to a friend to give his son for Christmas as I know things are tight for him at the mo. Anyway I think its time to start enjoying my Wii U now and start the next gen of gaming in my house 😁

that's sweet of you! I hope they enjoy the gift, and have fun with your new purchase! when you've had some time to play with it, be sure to let everyone know how you feel in the launch thread :3

Well I just got off the phone with my store manager for my local toys R us as I don't think I could live with the guilt, (huge company or not) but I am glad I did now. The manager did indeed check that it was sent out in error which it was, they still had my details on the system but had the incorrect bank details still on their (the reason I cancelled in the first place) as a result the card could not be charged but for some reason she could not explain the item shipped anyway. To cut it short they said I could keep the console as it was definitely a fault on their part and then she actually apologised to me for causing confusion lol. Anyway I'm glad I called them, it put my mind at rest and I no longer feel guilty 😇

good for you, man — i would've done the same thing. what will you do with the extra? :3

Re: What's with Nintendo and big noses?

theblackdragon

in all honesty, though, a nose can really make or break a character. they can add humor or strength depending on how they're drawn; tiny or nondescript noses can make a character plain or pretty, and that's not always what people want, i don't think. Could you imagine Mario with a turned-up little ski-slope nose like the princess has? with that big mustache of his, it'd look like some kind of kid in a plumber costume. or Ganondorf without his now-characteristic beak? That nose of his makes him look powerful and hawk-like, as if he'd tear into you as soon as look at you. Slap a pretty nose on him and he stands to lose his aura of strength; you'd be left staring at his huge mouth and wondering why his face all doesn't fit together anymore.

that said, Nibelilt is probably the closest to the real reason why so many iconic characters have big noses; they're just easier to draw. :3

Re: In-Depth discussion time! Nolan Bushnell, intolerance of failure, and how that's bad for the industry

theblackdragon

i don't get it. are we not supposed to voice how we feel about games on the internet anymore for fear of hurting some dev's feelings? After all, if we're not saying we didn't like one thing, we're praising something else, and heaven forbid we're not ladling out our praises equally enough across the board. don't want them getting jealous of one another or something. or are we only supposed to voice how we feel about games on forums not dedicated to video games? that way, we won't have large clusters of gamers getting together to say things.

theblackdragon

Cry me a river? The only thing that's changing is people can find others with similar opinions more easily than before, and they have a larger voice on the internet than they do alone IRL. The video-game business has always been dog-eat-dog, there's been nothing kind about any of it from the beginning.
