@lz: i took it straight from what that user posted, lol. You missed the 'then', btw (should be 'than' in that instance), so does that mean I get to average out to a C? :3

That said, I was trying to show how these sorts of complaints look in general to someone who's heard it all before (sorry to have singled you out as an example, Cr1TiKal, but the timing was perfect and so was your mini-rant :3). You can apply them to anything and they still look like someone could seriously have said them and meant them whole-heartedly, and they come off as ridiculous after the zillionth time you've heard that sort of complaint, y'know? Life's too short to spend so much time moaning about how music (or anything else) just wasn't what it used to be, and there's so much of it out there that's absolutely wonderful, it makes no sense to not focus on what you do like instead of what you don't. :3

MAD LIBS TIME:

I'm a 13 year old and I have to agree that a multitude of modern (subject nouns) are quite rubbish. Kids these days care more about how (adjective) they find the (job title) or the (nouns) then (nouns), the things that make it (noun or adjective). And don't get me started on (subtype of first noun). (opposing subtype) was just so much better.

here's mine:

I'm a 13 year old and I have to agree that a multitude of modern dogs are quite rubbish. Kids these days care more about how smelly they find the policeman or the carrots then boats, the things that make it food. And don't get me started on dobermans. Chihuahuas was just so much better.

either way, people have complained about then-modern music long before now and they'll be complaining about it long after we're all dead and gone. it's not worth getting worked up over IMO.

... as GL had only said that he wouldn't be making any more SW movies.

sorry, bro, but Lucas said in '99 that neither he nor any other filmmaker would make episodes VII, VIII, or IX and that the six episodes would be all there was. He was also saying as late as '08 that he didn't want anyone else taking the helm either — "I've left pretty explicit instructions for there not to be any more features. There will definitely be no Episodes VII–IX." (here's a link to the transcription that quote came from if you'd like to see the full interview) He claimed it was because the novels were nothing like how he saw the series petering out, and his version had no story, or at least that's how i'm reading his quotes.

it's in disney's hands now, though, so who knows what they'll follow and what they'll create on their own.

@Tasuki: Yes, I watched wrestling back when I was a kid — my little brother and I both did off and on. Waaaaay back in the days of the NES WWF Wrestlemania game we used to fight over who got to use Macho Man Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior and stuff, and I remember us having a Hulk Hogan-branded Stretch Armstrong, lol. My favorite wrestler back in those days was probably Macho Man.

During the Monday Night Wars, I remember watching WWF more because they had Edge and Christian and the Hardys, and man oh man did my friends and I have the hugest crushes on them, haha. If I could sit down and talk with a wrestling superstar, it would probably be Edge, just because he's had an awesome wrestling career and I bet he's got all kinds of stories. I love reading about all the random crap that happens backstage, haha :3

@mieu-fire: no thanks, I've had pet bunnies before. they're messy and they chew things D:

@Happy_Mask: a game I think I might like but can't bring myself to buy? At this point in time it's that Style Savvy 3DS game, but only because I really, really want to finish Black2 first (or at least get to the Elite 4 D: )

@Brando67854321: I'm really not sure, but then i've never been a huge Mario Party fan to begin with, so i haven't kept track of that sort of thing. I will say that Wikipedia alone cannot be trusted; for anything sensitive like release date information, you'll want to do your own research and make sure a credible source is actually reporting that date.

@JusticeColde: NLMania, eh? I'd probably have LordJumpMad go up against Vince McMahon, just to watch Vince force LJM to join the KMA Club. yes, that would amuse me greatly ;)
sorry ljm~

@Happy_Mask: I don't think Brando thinks NL is affiliated with Nintendo, no, especially not after his reply to you :3

@SomeBitTripFan: If I were to become moderator of the world, the first thing I'd do is sleep for six days straight, and then spend the last day of the week banning everyone who caused a ruckus while I was asleep, thus setting myself up as a proper deity who works on the seventh day instead of rests. that sounds like fun :3

@bulby1994: i know others have already stepped in to try and explain, but just to give you a proper answer, the section of the rules you're looking for is 'Unacceptable Content', and it states:

  • Any illegal activity, including any talk of modchips, piracy, warez, unofficial emulators & ROMs.
  • Linking to any download sites, torrents or other resources that allow users to gain access to illegal content or related activities.

This would include offering hacked/counterfeit games for sale or trade here at Nintendo Life. I'm sure you'll be able to trade or sell it elsewhere on the internet, but it doesn't belong here I'm afraid.

In the future, if you have any questions regarding the Rules here at NL, please feel free to use the [url=http://www.nintendolife.com/contact]Contact Form[/contact] to get in touch. I had honestly forgotten about this thread until someone else asked another question just now. Sorry it took me so long to get you a proper answer D:

@Void: Five Guys trumps all.

@LTD: Sometimes I miss reviewing games, but not often. To be honest, writing about games kinda took the fun out of playing them IMO, plus when you have to play at least one game a week (sometimes two or three) and give it an honest writeup, it leaves not much time for playing the games you really want to play, lol.

@paperluigi: I'm not really a zombie fan to be honest. They're fun in small doses, but now that they're the 'in' thing, i'm bored with them :(

@SomeBitTripFan: I'm assuming I locked a thread of yours? If so, no big deal, man — it's not like you're in trouble when I lock/redirect something. please don't take it personally :3

@Happy_Mask: VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY sad :(

@GamecubeMan: I don't know, to be honest. It had a great run, though; I'm surprised it went on for as long as it did, lol :3

@Gaz: That's going to bring up another solid question, too — what will be canon and what won't when this is all said and done? The movies have always been straight canon, no ifs, ands, or buts, and if they start changing things around, it's really going to wreck what the fans have always been able to consider 'canon' or not.

That's already happened with the prequel trilogy. For example, Boba Fett has different back stories in the expanded universe novels that differ wildly from that of Attack of the Clones (I can't remember if the EU stories are consistent with each other or not). I found those stories way better than the official movie version, and I think Lucas would have done well to use existing stories rather than what he went with (or just omit Boba Fett, he was only included in the prequels due to his popularity among fans).

this is true... i'm just worried that they'll go off on a tangent that preempts the Heir to the Empire trilogy somehow altogether, or changes key parts of it, and I really don't want to see any of that changed. I like it the way it is, lol.

I guess I shouldn't get so worked up over it, but it's hard when damn near everyone you know is talking about it at the same time across multiple sites D:

@tealovertoma: we've been having an Angel marathon at the house lately (it's on Netflix instant if anyone's interested~)... it's just a different style of one-liner, the pace is quicker. i keep imagining Han and Leia interacting like Angel and Cordelia and it's making my brain hurt, it really is :(

As for Episode VII's content, Lucas did have some general ideas, but who knows whether they'd go with that or not (he was pretty adamant that there would be no sequel trilogy, after all...). I can see Disney just using the Heir to the Empire trilogy instead since it (a) picks up pretty quick from VI and (b) is already written and considered canon.

that said, i've seen multiple people now suggesting that Joss Whedon be given the job of revamping Star Wars and pulling it into this century. I have to say that I love all things Buffy and Angel, I love love love Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, but Firefly/Serenity bored me to tears and if that's the kind of thing he'd wind up doing to Star Wars, he can keep it. No thanks. I also think the zippy one-liner style of dialogue would be very out of place in a Star Wars film.

@Morphtroid: They've been featuring it, yes, but they haven't owned it and had it under their direct control before. It's one thing to be forced to work with someone else and get their approval for everything you want to do (because Lucas was/is a control freak for srs), but now that it's theirs and theirs alone...

i used to wonder if it were humanly possible for Star Wars to get any worse. Now that the very real possibility of such is staring me directly in the face, i find myself pining for the old days when they used to always show the original trilogy on like TBS every Thanksgiving and the whole family would just sit down and watch Han shoot first, Luke fall without screaming, no fancy explosions and stupid extended celebration scenes at the end of RotJ, no worrying about whether it was in HD or widescreen or whatever else might be different about it this time around. wonder what 'disney original' kid they're grooming to jam into this next trilogy?
