I think it's a little unfair to be criticising the grandparents, considering the grandparents aren't here to explain their decision, no?

I mean, for all we know this grandson character might desperately need a lesson in saving money, or perhaps the grandparents have organised a surprise holiday and they want to make sure the grandson has some money saved to enjoy the trip.

Waltz kinda has a point here. There could easily be something else going on that we don't know about here (no matter what excuse Grandma gave — we all know how that goes)... there's no way for any of us to know the full story, and what works for one family won't work for all families. Let's assume good faith on their part and work on ways to change their minds as TheDreamingHawk has asked :3

My point was that is it sick in general to even post something like that. I get that to you it's light hearted humor but to anyone else it'd be caniballism. It's stuff like that that makes me really question the sanity of the generation I'm growing up in is stuff like that. Internet or not it's still sick. I accept your apology. It's really bad humor though. No offense.

it's just a joke. while I'm sorry you didn't like it, please understand that none of our Rules were broken by it having been posted here... black humor or not, he was within his rights and (most of?) the rest of us found it amusing. The social commentary isn't necessary.

@FonistofCruxis: That's the one i've been using. It's not helping, I'm afraid.
@mieu-fire: how can I get lost in this game? very easily.
@RR529: I'm not stuck in a normal dungeon, I'm stuck trying to figure out what part of an overworld dungeon i'm supposed to be in or on or whatever. It's the Meggiora Highlands, i'm trying to get to its sephiroth and i'm constantly having to dodge enemies while trying to find where i'm supposed to be, the slow movement and all, it really makes this a chore to play.

@Ant: to be honest, it was never a problem for me before, not even on this tiny netbook of mine, and now between the Live Comment system and the avatar thing, it's absolute hell for me to attempt to scroll through a lengthy comment thread now. If it's easier on the servers, that's one thing and I'll deal with it without complaint, but if it's supposed to be easier on me, it's kinda not :(

terrible research to go with terrible taste in games.

at least they're consistent i guess...

also, i know it's just a random list (truer words were never spoken, Gamesake), but what the ever-loving hell is SMRPG doing twenty places ahead of Suikoden II? As much as I love SMRPG, it can't hold a candle to the depth, size, and replay value of any Suikoden game IMO, much less II ffs.

it's kinda random whether people walk into your shop and buy anything or not, but then i only had it going through Day 3. I really love the art style, but the fact that it's stylus-only is a bit of a turn-off (this could easily have button controls) and the menus take a bit of trial and error to figure out even if you've been through the manual a few times already.

Also, it auto-saves your game, so don't worry about not seeing a 'save' option anyplace. just exit out to the main menu and then when you want to continue, tap 'continue'. :3

Maybe it was mistakenly put live? After all, if no one can get to it to comment, no one can tell them it's been greenlit in error. :3

Either that or perhaps they're rolling it out region by region in order to reduce their initial server load? they're probably gonna get pounded when it's open to everyone, lol...

We're getting close to the line between what's kosher and what's not as per our Rules. Please tread carefully, everyone :3

That said, in my experience with Wii VC titles, these are perfect emulations — there's slowdown, graphical glitchery, and other quirks in all these games i used to play when i was little, and they're all in the right places to boot. I'm not so sure with 3DS VC stuff (because I don't own much), but in terms of Wii VC stuff, it's pretty damn spot-on if you ask me.
