Coming to an all Nintendo site you are expected to have some good things to say and not just bash the Wii >.>

Please point out the part in our Community Rules that says users are expected to say good things about anything, whether Nintendo or not. What we expect from our users is civil discussion from all sides of an argument without resorting to personal attacks and accusations of 'trolling'. Please assume good faith, and if you honestly think someone's trolling, just ignore them. That way, if that's what they really are doing, you won't be feeding them, and if they weren't trolling in the first place, you won't spark a thread-derailing argument.

That said, I'd like to take this opportunity to clear up some misconception: The moderation team consists of myself, @Philip_J_Reed, and on occasion other members of the admin team. So far as I can tell, no moderators have been in this thread arguing what it's about — that's been on you guys, and congratulations — you've all managed to make a mess out of this thread with the accusations of trolling and whatnot. IT ENDS NOW. Consider yourselves all on warning: I'm going to start temp-banning the people who start pointing fingers and calling names. I'm tired of the BS, and newsflash — the people you're accusing of being the problem aren't the problem in the first place.

BOTTOM LINE: From this point on, if you try to start up the 'durr this is a Nintendo site you have to love Nintendo or don't post here!!!1' game, you're going to lose. I advise you not to play if you value posting here at Nintendo Life. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

nintendo vs sega was quite fun actually- it may have been heavy handed, but the console wars back then was no where as competitive and dare i say it, catty and nasty as it is today.

maybe it was different for you growing up, but IMO the only thing that's making it seem worse now is the fact that we've got it playing out all across the internet as opposed to just the schoolyard and the local playground. it was just as bad when i was a kid as it is now.

played this a little bit last night... Series mode is a little boring (idk, it's a bit slow for someone who's very experienced with rhythm games IMO), but I love love love the Chaos Shrine, and Challenge mode is great too :3 and i love love love love looooove leveling up my little doods (Bartz, Onion Knight, Cecil, and Cloud for me, haha — all male bonus ftw)

i'm'a check out the DLC later and see what's up with that, but for now, this is adorably fun~

When the forum upgrade finally happens, you will be able to pull up a list of all the comments and threads you've made via your user profile. Until then, I'm afraid there's no way except a Google search — site:nintendolife.com/forums "SRArter" would do it for you, OP. Don't worry, we're working on it :3

When I'm researching a purchase I always check to see what country the item was manufactured in. As long as the quality is the same or better I'll take the locally manufactured choice every time.

pretty much this. some products we don't have a choice (if you want an iDevice, it's coming from China, for example) but in terms of clothing, food, furniture, etc. and so forth I prefer to buy local. there's all kinds of great farmer's markets and stuff up here in NC anyway :3

I love the rose-tinted reminiscing that's going on in here, guys, but everything that's happening now has already happened before. It happened long before now, over and over, and it'll happen again, and again, and again, long after we're all gone from this forum and moved on to other forums, it'll still happen. People come and go, we pick up new opinionated users to replace the old. Trust me, it wasn't as good as you think it was back then.

You can either roll with the punches and let the worst of it go, or you can take everything ZOMGDEADSERIOUS and explode on the forums (and likely wind up banned eventually). If you need to take a break for a while, take a break — there's no shame in that at all. We'll be here when you get back, just like always, and if you instead decide to move on permanently, we wish you the best.

@katernity: you can find those style restaurants in Japan, but they call them 'benihana' iirc. it's related to the Benihana restaurant that opened in the US and popularized the 'chef puts on a show at the table' thing, lol — that was popularized in the US, and thus it made its way back to the tourist-y areas of Japan.

personally, i'd rather see them bring over one'a them customize-your-own-curry places. i miss those :(

yes, the Egil fight is a huge point of no return. if your goal is 100% sidequest completion, you need to be done with whatever you're doing before the Egil fight — especially if it's anything to be done on the Mechonis. reload your game before that fight, go back and do whatever it was you were doing, and don't fight Egil until you're satisfied with what you've accomplished, because there is a huge amount of stuff you will not be able to get back to.
