the AVGN Movie was okay. i liked it, and it segued into him finally reviewing ET, so that was also fun. would i recommend it if you're not a fan of the AVGN? probably not, it was made pretty much for the fans, very niche — and he knows it. i've spent ten bucks on worse.

i do still enjoy even the latter AVGN videos that people say are crappy. years ago he seemed to focus on theatrics and cursing, but lately it feels like the games are carrying the show, not just his antics. it feels like he's matured a bit, though sometimes it also feels like he may be running out of crap retro games to poke fun at. :3

Knock it off, all of you. If you can't help the OP in a thread, keep on moving.

@KickButt_Gaming: No one here can help, Nintendo is your only hope. Contact them when you can and they'll get you squared away. In the meantime, chill out and knock it off with the profanity, please, it is not necessary. Thank you!

If so, y'all might be able to cover whatever yearly Tecmo hack comes around when every other site covers it.

I hope so, I have been looking for Super Smash Bros Brawl since forever

i hope this is a reference to a ROM hack and not piracy...? Piracy advice is still not okay, please don't ask where you can find ROMs here. Discussion of a ROM hack is fine, but links are probably not a good idea — we're all big boys and girls and can Google for ourselves, right? :3

@Chrono_Cross: Or you could try not being a jerk to other people when you think you're in the right — a friendly tip from your lovable Community Administrator.

@Geonjaha, et. al regarding a PM system: The monitoring issues would be for cases of harassment, spam, and soliciting — of all kinds. The last thing we want is for NL to begin attracting creepers trying to pick up a minor just because we've got 'Nintendo' in the URL. No PM system on any other website i've been a part of has ever been fully private, either... moderators have always had access for this reason (and if they're telling you otherwise they're full of crap). We've got enough on our hands without the added headache of having to also keep track of what's flying around out of the public eye.

Also, i'm personally against users being able to mute/ignore one another on the site mainly because it breaks threads, for example if a question is answered by a muted user and the OP can't see it and thinks they're being ignored because everyone else thought it had been answered already, or they try to jump into an discussion only to find they're not getting half of it. I'm a firm believer in just ignoring or not responding to people who bother you, just like they're not even there most of the time. It's not hard, guys, i do it on a daily basis.

If your mom doesn't know and you're unwilling to ask her for help, that's on you. Nintendo is doing what they feel is necessary to cover their butts by requiring minor users of their products to get adult/parental permission for certain things. If you've called them, they cannot legally do business with a minor, an adult must make all decisions with them for you. Get your mom to help.

Whether the music is available elsewhere on the internet or not, the bottom line is that it is not yours to upload. You have not asked permission of its rightful owner(s), otherwise you would have been able to successfully counter this guy's flagging. Try contacting Nintendo and see what they have to say about it, they may be able to stop the guy, but it's in their hands to take action because it's their property. Best of luck to you!

Get in touch with Nintendo proper. Even if you are able to delete something from your device you'll still have it available for download via eShop, and since it seems to be such a big deal for you only Nintendo themselves are capable of making that sort of edit to your eShop account, if at all. Good luck to you!

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.

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?

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.
