Please stop creating new threads for what is essentially the same exact topic, @RoyalBlueLink. We already have an open topic for users asking how to convince parents (or whomever) to buy them a Wii U and you have been asked more than once to use it. Please stop posting these duplicate threads. We will not ask again.

The problem in Nintendo's case was pedophiles. IIRC what happened in japan with Swapnote was a couple of little girls had been communicating with grown adult men, parents had set the controls to disallow this but they were circumvented. They had been using Swapnote to organize a meetup for sex IRL, which is probably the main reason Nintendo goes out of their way to disallow communication of places, websites to meet up and chat freely, and FC information on Miiverse. Something on the scale of what was able to happen in Japan would be an absolute PR nightmare here in the west due to their strong connection to children's gaming and they know it.

As for Nintendo Life with no PMs though, we would have no way of moderating them — not only for inappropriate messages but also for spam, discussion of illegalities, or threats. That's why we do not offer them. Most of us use other sites (like the Backloggery) if we really need to say something in private to another user, you're welcome to put links to such into your user signature and/or profile information.

@Jaz007: it's two still-shot images found via searching Flipnote Studio 3D on google, one shows what looks like a five-year-old standing in only her underwear from an angle that looks like the floor (panty shot) and the other is a censored image of a very large-breasted woman wearing only underpants in what seems to be a quite suggestive pose (if her eyes are any indication). they're part of an image macro asking if they're what is found acceptable on the service.

'should' tends to denote something that doesn't happen often, if ever. it's easier to change yourself than it is to change others, so why not take the initiative and go play some games instead of focusing so hard on what other people are doing?

Find something else to do or focus on. Read a book, draw or paint, go outside and play. Get away from the internet and game-related forums.

i like how the thread was pretty much over within the first two responses and yet no one could just let it die. come on, play what you want, guys. as far as any of you are concerned the only console that's 'won' anything is the one able to play the games you want to play (dismissing all else as 'low-quality' or 'shovelware' regardless of actual quality or reception by target audience) and we all know that's far too subjective a thing to try to claim as fact, right?

tl;dr: this has already been argued to death. quit chasing your tails and go play some games.

hey guys, Ant has said repeatedly in the past that there will be no PM system, though more public alternatives have been discussed and/or were said to be in the works for years now. in the meantime, most of us with Backloggeries have used that to get in touch with each other on a personal level if sharing social media information or e-mail addresses wasn't an option.

Nowhere in their reply, they've stated that elsewhere though. ;)

'Elsewhere' is not here and now. To me the e-mail looks perfectly reasonable and understandable given the circumstances.

The bottom line is that what's done is done. The OP was not randomly selected and the public demo is now available. Go enjoy the demo and then enjoy the game when it's released. If you think the reason you were not randomly selected is because your house is green instead of purple, you own a cat instead of a dog, or you left a checkbox unchecked, then go and change these things and hope that next time you're in the 'selected' group. There still will be no guarantee.

The problem is that you're assuming you were intentionally left out of the demo promotion because you left that box unchecked when they're trying to explain that it was chosen randomly. Even if you had checked the box, you were not guaranteed a code after having reached Platinum status last year. It's the luck of the draw, and as they've also explained, the public demo is now available and any unredeemed codes are no longer good. I'm not sure what you want from them at this point, and I can easily see why they've deemed this 'closed'.

Nice to see this thread here, reading it made me want to jump in again. I do love Rune Factory games, got them all. But somehow I get sidetracked by other games playing this one. Maybe because you have to really be immersed to get ahead and I don't always have time for that. But I'm going to jump back in! Because soon we will have Fantasy Life on our hands, and having played the Japanese game I can tell you it reminded me a lot of Rune Factory!

lol i kinda want to jump back into my file but i forget what i was doing with everything and plus Fantasy Life is right around the corner... sigh, decisions D:

wait.

aren't you the same guy who posted the thread about how much you hate having 'help' or an 'easy mode' or whatever in Nintendo games now, like the special blocks in NSMB games and stuff to help people get past too-challenging levels and win the game? because if so, i think you've answered your own question — there's no problem at all, just a few vocal people who denounce the availability of this 'help' to others who may feel the need to indulge.
