maybe they just mean his biological children? who knows what got lost in translation there, but even so — you don't need to be blood-related to be a family. :(

@kkslider: i knoooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwww omg omg

(under normal circumstances i'd try to come up with something a bit less vapid to express how I felt about the Mechonis Core events, but seriously, 'omg omg' is the best i can come up with when i think about it. truly an amazing game to render me speechless like that D: )

  • Inheritance Cycle (the book series starting with Eragon). A more classical example, with Eragon's mentor actually dying at one point in the story. BTW, the movie adaptation sucks.

the Eragon books steal ideas from a few other books based on the 'monomyth' template, so it makes sense that it too would follow the same format.

@GuardianKing: We've done that before, and i'm wanting to say I've seen NL use those same 'hey, pushsquare/kinectaku is over here' ads whenever there's a spot not taken by some other ad on the main site for whatever reason. we've also got the links to PS and KT down at the very bottom of every page in the 'friends' row, so... yeah. :3

it was all right — the flying race games i didn't really like, but everything else was fine. you can get by ignoring the 'furry' aspect no problem IMO, it only gets weird about that kind of thing toward the very last part of the game lol. i'd go with CapnPancakez' estimation for the main story, and then there's some bonus chapters after you've beaten the main game that'll take you through a little bit more with the main character's ultimate fate iirc, and then that's it.

(a) TheDreamingHawk, the reason I kept deleting your comments was because that portion of the conversation was over — the situation with the user you were responding to had already been handled, and yours were not the only comments that had been deleted from that thread. A good rule of thumb is that if you notice your comment is gone, don't re-post the same exact thing, especially if it involved you screaming at another user about something. I do apologize; most users are generally able to put two and two together in terms of that sort of thing.

(b) zez, you asked to be banned, then you blatantly flaunted the fact that you had had a second account the entire time, which pissed me right the hell off . I knew full well that you had my contact information, and so I chose to make sure that time around that you'd been banned as requested. In short, be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it.

(c) shingi, there is no system for this, actually, though i'm flattered you think so, lol — i have to go through and manually e-mail users each time i need to hand down a warning or something. most of the time if it's a small rule that's been broken (like someone posting a 'first comment' or a rare profanity, or in cases like this where i'm trying to stamp out one user's disruption of a thread by actively discouraging other users who are trying to provoke them), i won't bother with a warning e-mail, but if it turns into a trend later on or if it's a major infraction I'll go ahead and give them the heads-up that their behavior is not OK.

all that said, i wouldn't really mind having a system in place that would make it easier for me to contact users every single time i have to delete something. it's more work for Ant, though, and i know i've put quite a bit on his plate already lately, so we'll see what he decides, i suppose. :3

man... my only advice for anyone picking this game up is BE AGGRESSIVE. don't be afraid to blow all your capital in the first few weeks on advertisements, store fixtures, and book signings, because damn will it pay off later on :O

also, i wish you could set your books to automatically stock and still be able to restock them on-the-fly if need be. i keep forgetting if i've fiddled with the restocking of a particular item until it's already out, and then i'm all 'oh wait i had to place a big order of those last time so that's why it's not auto-restocking anymore'...

I'm so glad there was a demo; this game just isn't for me. I do like the effort that went into it, though, it's absolutely adorable and anyone who likes monster-catching and dungeon-crawling will probably get a kick out of it. :3

@ramstrong: there's no need to get snippy, i think we've crossed a wire somewhere...? i tend to go by the Backloggery definition — when you 'beat' or 'win' a game, it counts as a plain :B:, but when you've met every possible goal a game has to offer you, it counts as a 'complete', a gold :C:. You can win or beat a game without completing it; completion is the best possible outcome. just making it to 99 days would not count for 'completion' at all IMO.

@ramstrong: considering you lose the game by being in debt three weekends in a row, i think just making it to the end of your 99 days in the black counts as a win, technically. it may not be 'completion', but in terms of the game itself, you didn't lose... :3

Since we're all talking improvements or changes that could be made to the 3DS now, let's go ahead and take this discussion to this existing thread. Thank you! :3

also, were you to 'mess with them' like that, Otaku, no one would add you. that's not really a problem for most of us here, but chances are you'd get bored of having no friends after a while, so i'd suggest doing so only at your own risk should we ever receive the option to do so at all.
