Dunno, haven't heard of it...

I just searched it, and nothing came up!

that's because it's infested with turtles — wire-chewing, server-killing, site-bring-down-ing-y turtles. >:[

on-topic... haha, we appreciate your enthusiasm, PoshSnivy, but I assure you, we're more than capable of defending ourselves when necessary. We're glad you enjoy NL! :3

You know you just said that to a Nintendo Life staff, who was making a joke?

Of course and a funny one at that. But what does that have to do with anything?

Well I just think you should be more considerate. Saying that someone's work is bad directly to them is just inconsiderate. If you don't like this site, then find another!
Anyway, what are you to judge; you review games at WiiWareWave.com yourself!

Look, Chrono_Cross is as welcome to his opinion as anyone else about our reviews here at Nintendo Life — just as we're welcome to our own opinions about anything under the sun. It's not like he goes around harassing our staff (which is absolutely not kosher, of course), and at least he's comfortable expressing how he feels directly to our faces as well as elsewhere on the internet... some people won't even give you that courtesy. There's no need to get nasty over it like that at all just because he also reviews games for another website.

The bottom line is that he and others like him may think their own work is the bees' knees and that they're being as unbiased as possible, but I guarantee you no matter how hard you work to be fair and balanced in your reviewing style, you're still going to get people who disagree with you and think you're lower than dirt for daring to publish whatever review(s) you've done regarding (insert thing here). It's the nature of the beast, and it's okay. So long as someone is giving an honest opinion of what they've played, they're still helping some other guy out there who thinks the same way they do. It's why I love Metacritic and recommend it to everyone — not for the big fat number, but because it puts a gaggle of reviews at my fingertips for damn near any given game out there, and I can easily go down the list and see what other reviewers picked out as faults, handy features, and I can get a much bigger picture regarding whether I'll like a game than from just one review.

Welcome back, Mac. Figures it's be an Atlus game to do it :3

I just fired it up a little bit ago. The voice acting is pretty good (dialogue is kinda cheesy though haha), and the game looks gorgeous in 3D, but I had to turn the 3D off for battles because the framerate drops significantly. Thankfully it looks just as good in 2D as 3D. the battle system is going to take some getting used to, but it's been fun so far :3

The only grinding I did in this game was when I hadn't seen a character in a long time and I wanted to get them to the same level as everyone else. It could be because I did a lot of exploring trying to find and finish all the side quests as I went, or maybe I did more grinding than I thought, but because I liked this game so much I didn't even realize I WAS grinding.

it was probably the latter, especially if you turned grinding into a game like i did :3 but yeah, to finish that one final sidequest in particular (i'm assuming you know the one i'm talking about...?) I had to do quite a bit of grinding because i kept getting my butt handed to me by Mr. V... that could also have been my stubbornness to not use the princess, though (idk, i think the guide i was using said to use her for that fight, but i just didn't want to level her up and then go beat the game with my favorite team afterward, it kinda felt cheap for me to do so). the great thing after that sidequest, though, was that the endgame was a freakin' breeze >:3

@Neoproteus: Male circumcision is also practiced in the world and viewed but The_Fox is right — no, it's not on the same level as female circumcision, not by a long shot. I can't go into details as to why exactly because this is a family-friendly site, but you can figure it out for yourself if you do the research on what exactly is removed during female circumcision, the process and tools normally used, and the people who usually perform the 'operation'.

I'm going to go ahead and end this topic here. it's been a swell trip, guys, and hopefully some eyes have been opened by the arguments presented herein, but we've gotten too far away from the original topic if this is the route we're going, I'm afraid. :3

as for what genre of games i consider my favorite, that would be tough, but I greatly enjoy turn-based JRPGs. puzzle games too.

you kinda gotta knuckle down and get after it, Empireindustries — there comes a point where the game kinda demands you not only grind, but start strategizing during even 'easy' battles in order for you to proceed without dying. experiencing the game in full is very much worth the trouble of grinding, tbqh... if it helps, i kinda made grinding into a game in itself at one point when I believe I had Aht, Stocke, and Marco on my team; i'd use Marco's ability to switch with another character and line up the attacks with Aht, raking in epic combos for mad XP. You get more XP if you work up good combos than if you don't iirc :3

All right guys, a couple things:

(a) Some of you may have noticed I've cleaned up the latter portion of this thread. Please be careful of double, triple, quadruple-posting to a thread here at NIntendo Life, it bothers other users and clutters a thread. If you've got something to add to a thread and you were the last to post, please edit your last post to add it as opposed to posting yet again.

(b) We seem to have a problem with playing nice here in the latter portion of the thread. I've gone ahead and deleted most of the nastiness, so let's all start fresh and be excellent to one another, please — and if you're not in the mood to do so, just don't bother posting until you are. Some of you guys are indeed more knowledgeable than others up in this thread, but no one's forcing you to comment here. You're not under any obligation to help anyone else with their project(s), so please, don't get uppity and snarky if someone asks a question you've seen a bazillion times. If you don't want to answer it, either someone else will or they'll figure it out on their own.

Thanks, guys! :3
