There have been times where games have not shown up for a day or two and then they show up later, right as rain. Sometimes the Wii Shop hiccups like that. Has anyone thought to get in contact with Nintendo about it? having it gone completely but its sequels remaining in the Shop for purchase sounds odd.

whoa whoa whoa, you can copy VC save-files from the SD card — you have to have redownloaded the game(s) in question first, though. Otherwise it thinks that game hasn't been downloaded before and gives you an error message.

Sorry, I"d forgotten there were multiple threads for this sort of thing — guys, the full reviews need to end. As I said in the 3DS version of this thread, to clarify the situation: yes, reader reviews have long been disallowed here on the forums. No, there is nothing in the Community Rules about it, but it's been actively enforced ever since that announcement was made. However, I had given the original thread a pass back when it first started because at that point it was a bit more like an 'impressions' thread, which we do allow, and it wasn't the typical 'this is my thread for my reviews' kind of thing that had run rampant around when this particular rule was announced. I thought that's what this thread was too, and that's why I let it go for so long, and for that I apologize.

I see the thread is geared more toward actual 'reviews', though, and it needs to get back to 'impressions' — please cool it with the numerical scores and images, keep it to a paragraph or so about how you felt about the game (trim the useless fluff about the game's history/background/etc.), and you should be 'impression'y enough to keep this thread open, guys. If anyone here would like to continue with more complete 'reviews', as always you are more than welcome to post them to your own webspace (a blog, a tumblr, whatever) and then link to them in your profile or signature.

as always, if anyone has any questions about issues of moderation policy and/or the rules in general, you're more than welcome to take them to us directly via the Contact Form and we'll be happy to explain the situation (or take care of the problem, however it works out, lol). thank you! :3

(a) Pokemon, because Digimon are lame

(b) Peach, because as Toadstool she's got Group Hug and Come Back, lol. Plus she gets to use the Frying Pan later on (hell yes i want to whack people with a cast-iron skillet), and she's the only one who can equip the B'tub Ring (which lets you get you the Sheep Attack item eventually, goodbye lame useless enemies). Throw a Lazy Shell on 'er and she's damn near indestructible :3

@James: usually that's the case, but there are some cases (as it was with Tendoboy) where users will be warned in the thread in which they're currently misbehaving.

Guys, please be aware that a warning is a warning, whether made via formal e-mail or in-thread, and yes, if we feel a ban is warranted, we may jump to that action after an in-thread warning instead of merely escalating it to a formal e-mail/second warning. It depends on the situation, and even after being banned, no one is blocked from using the Contact Form to get in touch with us directly and discuss the situation.

Please note that the rules clearly state the following:

All actions are decided by staff only and are not open to public debate, they remain a private issue between user and staff and therefore should not be discussed by other users.

As for specifics, he was specifically warned about certain behavior leading to an eventual ban. He acknowledged the warning, and then chose to continue on with the same behavior, therefore we followed through with the aforementioned consequences. If you haven't been warned about anything leading to an eventual ban, you've got nothing to worry about (and none of you who have posted in this thread have, actually, so we're good). :3

Also, the user statuses have been there for a while — 'inactive' and 'banned' are the only ones that will show up, otherwise the user is 'active'. The 'inactive' status allows the moderation team to ascertain at a glance whether we should waste time investigating them (as they're a brand new user with no current on-site activity), and the 'banned' status allows everyone to know at a glance whether that user is banned or not. If ever you're curious as to whether a given user is banned, just check their profile to find out for sure.

If you have any further questions about moderation policy and/or bans, we invite you to use the Contact Form to get in touch with us directly. Thank you! :3

Unfortunately, these 'should i buy' or 'system1 vs. system2' threads usually wind up degenerating into bickering, and the forums have been so touchy lately that i'm gonna shut this down while we're ahead, lol. You're more than welcome to peruse some of the surviving topics if you like; hopefully they'll help you make your decision. There's also the Xbox 360 fan thread and the PlayStation 3 fan thread if you'd like to check out the pros of either system straight from people who own them. :3

Why can you do it on another forum and not here? because we're not that forum. sorry to disappoint! However, there are plenty of free image-hosting sites available on the internet (ImageShack and Photobucket are quite popular in my experience) for whatever images you'd like to post here at NL, and when you're ready, the code goes thusly:

[img=http://www.imagehostingsite.com/image.jpg]

or, if the image you're wanting to show off is quite large, we ask that you link to the URL instead of embedding it into your post:

[url=http://www.imagehostingsite.com/image.jpg]here's my image![/url]

we appreciate your understanding :3
