Do we really need to go through this again? Please feel free to use your original thread if you'd like to continue belaboring the point, Faron, but tutorials and on-screen notes have been a part of games for a long time now, and they seem to be here to stay..

^ lol

I'm in the same boat as Tasuki — my netbook doesn't have an optical drive either. a decent external would be a drop in the bucket compared to what you're about to shell out for the latest and greatest in Apple computers nowadays, lol.

@SamuraiShyGuy: no offense, but the reason I was asking for UK/EU-specific opinions is because the cast was from their region, those sorts of accents are native to their corner of the world and they hear them every day. IMO they would be the best judges of whether a dub sounds natural or is pleasing to the ear (or their ears, even). I wouldn't ask a person from the UK to be any kind of authority on whether or not a dub with an American cast was well done or not, thus why I wasn't asking for an American opinion for this one.

@FoC: thanks! so far you're the first to have chimed in saying it was good :3

lol wow. don't get me wrong, i love me some British TV, i enjoy talking to friends from the UK who still have their accents (or some of 'em left, anyway, lol), but for whatever reason the voices in the dub just grated on my ears horribly. Fiora annoyed the ever-loving stuff outta me, Reyn was a nightmare, and Shulk was just... lame. i asked on my Twitter back when I first got the game and received a few responses, but to anyone from the UK/EU in this thread who'd like to weigh in: would you say that Xenoblade an example of good-quality voice-acting?

^ yeah, if you see nothing and hear nothing, kiss that thing goodbye. at that point you could try kicking it a couple times to see if that magically fixes it (hey, anything's worth a shot lol), but with a bad mobo it's usually cheaper to just get another laptop than it is to fix the one you've got (though definitely save your hard drive, you can get an external enclosure or an adapter and save your files).

Is it beeping at all? If there's an error during the POST (e.g. if your computer can't detect a video card, which is just one of the problems that could be going on here) you'll usually hear a series of beeps, it's a code to help you diagnose the issue with your computer.

@G4L: it's just a joke, lighten up :3

@Alex: It's got one of the most original plots in any JRPG i've played in years. idk what kinds of games you normally play, but it's damn good and at least worth a shot if you're the least bit interested in RPGs that really push the limits of the Wii (do yourself a favor and put the voices in Japanese mode, though; the English dub is horribad) :3

I don't think he deserved that kind of reply. All he was trying to say is that these forums don't really catch his attention anymore with the lack of meaningful discussions. All we see on this site are "Game vs. Game" like polls, "What's your favorite?" and the occasional "What do you prefer?".

The worst part about all this is that when we DO get a potentially good discussion going someone either derails it or it never lifts off. That or it's just a fale troll.

so i'm guessing i should've used more question marks, exclamation points, and :O smileys in order to fully get across the fact that I was messing around. thanks for the feedback, i'll be sure to apply it next time i attempt to make light of what is clearly a dreadfully serious situation.
