LISTEN UP, GUYS

user @TolbCityGaming is in actuality PokeBreederKyle, PokeFanBreeder, and/or @Meketek93, apparently a pro scammer of shinies (and apparently as Meketek93 he did scam at least one person here out of a shiny back in December). His FC (5386-8703-5926) matches reports from other websites regarding scammers and thieves on their blacklists. If you have added him and have scheduled any trades, DO NOT TRADE WITH HIM. If you have traded him anything and received your goods intact, congratulations on your incredible luck. If you have traded him pokemon but haven't yet gotten them back, best of luck to you in securing their return, but it may well be a loss, I'm afraid. Beware when trading with strangers on the internet, beware, beware, beware!

Always look up a FC via google before adding it to your 3DS in order to trade pokemon!!! I cannot stress this enough! I was able to figure this out by doing exactly that, guys, it takes two seconds and can help fend off major scammers like this guy.

I'll do my best on my end to keep him from re-registering for another account here, but in the meantime, these are the FCs to avoid adding or to remove from your Friend List:
5386-8703-5926 (Kyle)
1040-0338-7575 (supposedly his wife, 'Steph')
3023-5524-0117 (his own alternate 3DS FC)
4566-9044-5976 (he didn't seem to use it here, but this showed up on other sites as also being his)

Also, while I"m here (and since I know this post is going to leave quite a few of you ticked off in TCG's wake): some of you have been way too free with the profanity lately. Please stop, it's against our Community Rules. You have been warned, if I have to step into this thread to edit any more posts today I'm going to start handing down temp-bans. :/

To be honest, the only way to preserve a 3DS like new, is not using it at all.

Pretty much this... wear and tear on a machine during use is unavoidable, especially if you're taking it in and out of a case all the time to clean it. If you had wanted to keep it pristine, the only way would've been to leave it in its box.

Auksinis has a sound idea IMO; if you have the available funds and still insist upon owning a perfect Zelda 3DS for your collection, buy yourself another — and this time, leave it alone. Use the one you've got now as your regular gaming 3DS, it still works fine even if its looks are no longer up to your standards, right? :3

There's a FAQ up at gFAQs here that goes through all the available endings and their variations. All you have to do is not read through to the end of the text for each one if you don't want to know how they go before you've witnessed them with your own eyes. There aren't really any spoilers except for the possible variations (sometimes if you do certain things or make certain choices you'll get differing results through each of the major endings).

I know gifting games to other people via the Wii was a lot of fun (especially when it came to gifting BPlus games to Phil, haha), but there's nothing stopping you from gifting him eShop funds instead. Just buy him some gift cards — or, in the case of Mario Kart, I think you can buy a code for the eShop game download from GameStop. I'd try calling them to see which eShop game codes you can maybe purchase from them in-store, maybe SF will be one of them too? I know they had Pushmo and NSMB2 at one point...

it's easily 100+ hours' worth of sheer awesome, which is more than you can ask of most modern JRPGs. switch the audio to Japanese if the English voices bug you (i hate the dub, but the JP version doesn't bother me) and get at least 10 hours into it before throwing in the towel. it grows on you; i had honestly despaired that the battle system would be forever beyond me, but then it all just clicked and suddenly the battles were almost more interesting than the plot. If you give up on it, that's on you, but the hype is there for a reason. You've already spent the money, you kinda owe it to yourself to give it an honest shot.

@Tasuki: plenty of great acting-type wrestlers in the WWE have had crap storylines before — one of the worst examples IMO was Eddie Guerrero's last one, that whole 'i'm your papi' bit. Eddie was a wonderful actor amongst wrestlers (and i know i still miss him, even if his death did launch Vickie into the role of one of my most favorite heels ever), but i couldn't watch those bits where he was going after Rey's kid. There was no saving that storyline. I get that acting is half of it, but even the best actor can't save a plot if the plot is crap, so i don't think it's fair to load all the blame onto Bryan's shoulders.

i think he'll get to the point someday where he's genuinely fun to watch both in and out of matches and i'll look forward to watching him act out a storyline, but that day kinda isn't here yet for me i don't think. not entirely, though again i did quite enjoy that steel cage match recently, lol.

about DB, i gotta say i love him as a wrestler, but his storylines... ergh. Team Hell No was the last time I really enjoyed his 'character' on-screen (and it was mostly his chemistry with Kane, y'know? they were hilarious together), that whole business afterward with him being all insecure with himself and taking it out on everyone else just pissed me off, and then him vs. The Authority? it's been done. meh.

I did like that whole thing in the cage a while back where he turned the tables on the Wyatts, though. i'd hoped it was gonna happen but you can never be sure whether the writers will give you what you want or it'll all just go to crap, y'know?

and i miss Dolph Ziggler, but I'm very glad AJ seems to not be around so much anymore, and I'm liking where Big E's going.

@MoogleMuffins: if i had to theorize or anything... I'm gettin' the feeling that Vince ain't gettin' any younger, so they've sorta had H take his place on-screen. If you look at him as a Vince McMahon stand-in, his place in the WWE world seems clearer. H himself has always been ambiguous at best, flip-flopping from heel to face as he pleased (or as the writers wrote him, whatever), he can be as serious as he can be hilarious, so i think he's perfect for the role, really. it's not his fault Stephanie has always been a beast, lol. as for her making him apologize to Punk... well, he was in the wrong, and she had to keep him in line, i guess. it kinda made sense from a corporate standpoint (like the thing with H and the potential lawsuit from Big Show a while ago), and it sorta reminded the rest of us that he's very much a puppet in whatever game The Authority is playing at the moment. Stephanie seems to be playing 'legal enforcer' or something, since she was the one to insist to both of them that they were in the wrong and they had to go out and apologize and whatnot in both situations, come to think of it.

as for things that have happened in the past, you know as well as I do that WWE tends to ignore (ahem) major happenings like that if it's convenient for them to do so. if they ever decide to go after Punk for srs I'm sure they'll trot that amazing rant of his out again, but for now, it seems they're letting it slide. :3

Team Hell No was fantastic, Kane didn't end up doing much though when they split up. Monster gimmicks don't work as well now as they did in the 90's, they are too cartoonish for this era, so by having Kane be corporate, lets him have the chance to be a more believable monster.

he never does a whole lot of anything after he's done with a feud or team or anything, that's why i'm glad to see him still getting airtime. and you're absolutely right — he's still a monster, just with a new setting and a new way to intimidate people. not sure how long it'll last, what with that dressing-down from Stephanie over the way he handled Punk a couple episodes ago, but for now, i'm content :3

I've really loved Kane ever since he showed up (well, since Jacobs showed up as Kane; i don't remember much about his earlier gimmicks), the whole 'Brothers of Destruction' thing back in the day was so awesome. hell, everything back in the days of the Monday Night Wars was pretty awesome. i sorta miss the days of 'monster' types getting over and terrorizing people, it's just so much fun than the usual 'grr i'm'a get that title belt' stuff :3

@MoogleMuffins: oh my god i'm so glad i'm not the only one who is enjoying Kane right now. i know he's not doing the Big Red Monster thing at the moment and he gets heckled with 'you sold out' chants every time he shows up now, but damned if I don't find him terrorizing Maddox hilarious, and I don't mind him playing his part with The Authority at all. he's oddly well-suited for the job (haha, suited, geddit?).

shoot, in all honesty i'm just glad he's still getting decent airtime after the end of Team Hell No (which had me rolling for months, him and Bryan and those little counseling skits of theirs were hilarious).
