@Portista: you'll notice I've fixed your URL for you — your code was fine, actually. The URL was for the Google Image search result page, not for the actual image. In order to get to the actual image itself, you need to click the 'Full size image' link to the right of the GIS result page.

@Waltz: find the bit where i said anything about people being required to enjoy these games? It'll be challenging because I didn't. also, i'm pretty sure being a person who enjoys games about getting with chicks and hand-rearing your own army doesn't really count as a protected class anywhere in the world. wake me up when someone starts personally insulting you due to your preference for this game, but generalizations about this being strange or weird are no worse than generalizations about Call of Duty being lame and crappy. in the end, fans still wind up annoyed, and non-fans still don't care. ignore the criticism if it bothers you, i promise we'll do the same for your proselytizing.

Dear Waltz,

The Western world is not Japan. We were raised differently, our cultural values are different, we dress differently, we decorate our homes differently, and above all, we think differently. Therefore, when considering any products from Japan (or any other country that's not our own, really), we naturally view them through the eyes our parents and society have given us and with the minds we've been forced to cultivate in the soil on which we stand — not that of a tiny archipelago halfway around the world from us. We're all sorry beyond words that we were not born in Japan so that all of us could claim the birthright of having our butts kissed by you for our clear moral superiority. Please forgive us our sins of "not giving a crap about what Japan thinks" and "judging whether or not we'd like to play a game based on our personal tastes and opinions" as we find ourselves somehow unable to do anything but.

Love,
The Unenlightened, Violence-loving, Prudish Philistines of the West

have you tried a new pair of headphones?

either way, i've had this problem with other electronics before. it's usually because the contacts inside the jack are loose (now that it's seen regular use) and they're not making the proper connections, or the jack on the headphones i'm using has been damaged or chipped somehow.. i've had good luck sticking a bit of foil down inside the jack (on the devices i've had that have had this problem) but be careful — if you put too much somehow, it will be very hard to get out afterward.

YMMV — BE VERY CAREFUL if you try using foil to fill the wobble-space. You're probably better off getting in touch with Nintendo about it tbqh.

@PikminMonster: the Push Square and KINECTaku forums already have a 'report summary' feature allowing users to tell us why they're reporting things; hopefully we'll see that implemented at Nintendo Life as well when the forum upgrade goes through. As for accidental reports, we know they happen, and if we're truly confused we can e-mail the person who reported the comment(s) in question asking for clarification. It's no big deal to accidentally report something — don't worry, we can tell the difference between an accident and someone abusing the system. :3

As for deciding whether punishment is appropriate or not, that's up to the moderation team. We're usually able to tell off the bat what's happening in a thread and take appropriate action thusly, but if we can't, again we usually get in touch with the person who reported the comment(s) in question and ask for clarification via e-mail.

We will remember to dismember our enemies,
Long live LordJumpMad! we shall say in his madness!
We shall smite all who defies the LordJumpMad,
We shall avenge our madness killed by them,
We will exterminate everyone, and everything in the name of madness,
Should one day be proud and victorious, and mad as LordJumpMad,
Long live our lord and master of Madness!

so that's where you were all day yesterday — you were working the grammatical errors out of your anthem :3

it's not even about storage, komic — having your savefiles in a cloud-based system would make transferring savefiles from one system to another much easier if you were to upgrade or replace a broken system, and also accessing your saves from a friend's house. all you'd have to do is log in and you're good to go, y'know?

I guess that's because Vita had good launch titles and getting good games within half a year of a system's launch isn't what people want.

Or maybe releasing gaming systems early in the year is a dumb, dumb idea, I dunno.

Probably the latter. Too many people recovering from Christmas, I guess.

actually, in terms of the US with these early-in-the-year releases they could be aiming for people getting their tax refunds back. i know that's how i had the money to be able to pick up my original 3DS when it hit, haha :3
