that sucks with it not being an actual 'suspend' feature — there are times i get mired in an RPG and have to stop to go to the store or something, so it's easier to just leave it on and running until i get back as opposed to finding a save point and shutting down first. that's one of the things i love about my PSP, it just saves your spot wherever you left off. i hope they can turn it into a true suspend with a later system update somehow, it sounds like a solid energy-saving feature otherwise.

Ok I got it. The cradle connects to the ac power chord and you drop your wii u controller on there to get juiced up. And then the stand is just to display your wii u controller somewhere else. Just seems kinda redundant. I mean the charging cradle does double as a stand. But hey, a seperate stand only cost a few pennies to make. Maybe I'll keep that in the kids room for when I kick them off my tv!. The charging cradle can stay in my living room with the console.

glad you've figured it all out, then :3

To be honest, it's horrible customer service, but if you were bugging that person at GameStop the way you bug out here at NL over other things, I can see where he might be somewhat exasperated with you. Try someplace else, TheDreamingHawk — WalMart or Target might be good options. Just show up at stores and see if they have any on launch day, and if they don't, just relax and wait until xmas — who knows, perhaps your grandma was giving you the runaround before because they want to surprise you with one this holiday season. Good luck!

Don't worry, we don't just up and delete accounts like that. Good luck to you!

edit: From the looks of things, it seems like you need someplace to just get all your thoughts out before your procedure — why not try a personal blog? That way, you can pick and choose what comments are left standing and delete any distasteful or uncivil ones yourself. You're more than welcome to link to your blog via your signature, and that way anyone who wants to check in and see how you're doing may do so. With the absolute freedom to say and discuss anything you'd like (as opposed to having to adhere to our Community Rules and keep away from topics like politics and religion), as well as absolute control re: moderation, it sounds like a better idea than this thread here on the forums. If you need help finding a place to set up a blog of your own, please don't hesitate to ask. :3

I still stand by my statement. I was going to put "If you are a smart parent", but I thought that may be a little rude. I'm just saying money wise it would be of better value, though if the newer wiis STILL had GC support, then I would recommend that instead.

On what planet is calling someone a 'bad parent' over such a trivial decision not rude? What we're talking about in this thread has absolutely, positively nothing to do with 'good' or 'bad' parenting.

technically my first job was an internship at Target when i was in high school. it was an elective, we rode a bus over there for a couple hours every Thursday that semester and did some light stocking and reorganized clearance racks, then bought lunch and hung out on the bench outside until the bus picked us up and brought us back to school. On the days we didn't go we were in some other class. i don't really remember much else about it tbqh; i think i just did it for the extra credit.

that aside, my first real job was at Universal doing food service during Spring Break when i was 16, and then through the summer too. Lord willing, I'll never work food service again.

This is going to be tough, but hopefully I'll be a better artist because of it. I'll miss you guys. Bye.
