OK SPOILER TIME

.
.
.

ok wtf is up with this game and GIANT EFFING SPIDERS OUT OF NOWHERE? ffs first i 'bout had a heart attack back when i first discovered the Daksha Shrine... wanting to say you had to pick up a necklace or something from there, and then when you get close enough to grab it that named spider comes crawling up from the ravine behind the shrine and eats you alive if you're not quick enough to just run like hell. then tonight i'm doing the line of quests in the Marsh that takes you through Exile Fortress... I'm overleveled for the area (just doing some sidequesting to gain XP for that fight on the Great Glacier because Mumkhar's about five levels over me... grr), but i go to place the Giant's Mirror on the altar and damned if a giant spider doesn't just crawl up from outta nowhere. granted, this one's just a normal spawn and it didn't auto-attack because i'm overleveled, but still, i damn near just pissed myself. this is a great game, but beware if you hate eight-legged surprises D: D: D:

SPOILER TIME IS OVER

I don't remember if it's honest-to-goodness law in Japan or not, but the noise is there to protect other people who may not want their pictures taken at the time (a locker room, for example). that noise is there for the protection of anyone else around you, and whether you like it or not, it's going to be there. No way would Nintendo/Sony/whoever remove it or [willingly] allow it to be disabled, not with the popularity of upskirt photos and other skeeziness that would be made all the more prevalent if there were no noise to alert other people to a potential problem. Sorry to disappoint!

@G4L: I've got everything from the Empress set except for the headwear (multiples thereof, in fact — two sets of greaves, five arms, two plates, two leggings). I'm afraid I don't know exactly which enemies drop what, but if they were Mechon, I battled a lot of those guys back in the Bionis Leg/Ether Mine areas (i fell off a ledge and died quite a few times while working my way up the Ether Mine area, haha). :3

@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.
