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.

they usually show up within a week after you make the purchase. if they don't show up, contact Nintendo directly and they'll fix it for you.

@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 :(

@kkslider: yeah, i'd say Prison Island is probably the place that begins the breakneck race to the end of the game :3

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.

While my main argument seemed to have focused around Nintendo no longer supporting the DS series, I'm more focused on why they can't at least try and give us DS users something new.

they are still giving DS users new things, though — Pokemon Conquest just hit, and Pokemon Black/White v.2 are coming to the west later this year.

that said, when a new console generation starts, it's natural for companies to start supporting the new as opposed to the old. the DSi was a DS revision that didn't make any significant leaps over what the DS could handle, thus it remained a 7th-gen device, while the 3DS is considered 8th-gen. DS games will eventually peter to a halt as Nintendo and third parties throw their support behind the 8th-gen stuff — that's why you won't be seeing NSMB2 on the DS/i.

since the conversation seems to have turned to the 3DSXL, please feel free to take your thoughts to the confirmation thread here. thank you :3
