We like to keep discussions as coherent as possible here at Nintendo Life, and we can't do that when they're splintered across the forums in twenty different threads. There are two main reasons why we will lock and redirect duplicate discussions:

(a) We have no Merge function on these forums, therefore we can't just merge duplicate threads together.
(b) We have a rule regarding duplicate threads, but the problem is that the search function does not work (we know this, and it's being worked on, hopefully it'll be a non-issue soon). That said, when a user posts a duplicate thread and I know I've seen it before, I'll find the original and see when it was last posted in. If it's within six months of the current date, I'll go ahead and lock the new duplicate and redirect the discussion to the original so that it can be continued.

There are special cases where i'll go beyond six months, but those involve especially notorious or important threads (the 'Goodbye/Vacation' thread or the 'NL users you haven't seen in a while' thread, for instance, or any of the existing Recommendations threads).

If you have any further questions about moderation policies and rule enforcement, we invite you to use the Contact Form. Thank you!

@Viewtiful_Joe: Unfortunately, the exception (you) does not make the rule. You may have paid the dev, but your brother still hasn't, and the illegal download still happened in the first place.

That said, if we could keep from tales of personal piracy on the forums (remember the rules, plz), it would be much appreciated. We don't need anecdotal evidence, it's time for people to start bringing facts to the table.

@Magi: as I'm sure you could tell from the same old 'waah no one likes me' and other tired rhetoric, that was our good buddy Eugene. sorry you got sucked into it there, i'd forgotten to check VG when I banned him from here, so those posts stayed up a bit longer than they should've.

In all seriousness, I think the remote play option is more for established users who already own a PS3, Tendoboy. No one's gonna rush out and buy a PS3 just to be able to play games remotely on their Vita or whatev'; the people who will get use out of such a feature are the people who would've bought both anyway, or the people who have already owned their PS3 for years now.

who won for president between the two of you? one can do the presidential and VP duties, the other the secretarial and treasurer-type ones. or you can do the co-president thing; no offense, but no one outside of a school setting cares what position you held in Key Club, and if it does turn out to matter (e.g. you're using it as a major part of a college entrance essay for whatever reason), i'm sure you'll be able to explain what went down and what your duties actually were regardless of what you were officially called. :3

Rating: Mature

Content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language

Rating summary: This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of two counter-terrorism operatives attempting to stop a bio-terrorist plot. Players use handguns, rifles, machine guns, and rocket launchers to kill hordes of zombies and mutated creatures. Battles are highlighted by screams of pain and realistic gunfire; enemies collapse to the ground when killed, dissolving into pools of blood and chunks of flesh. Blood-splatter effects occur when humans or zombies are attacked, and some characters are depicted with exposed organs/viscera. In one level, a human character is seen getting sliced by a chainsaw as she struggles in the air; in another, a corpse with a mutilated face is depicted hanging against a wall. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.

Online Notice:
Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Nintendo 3DS)

sounds like you might want to let your parents know what you're fixing to download if you're not sure you should, Bubbab55. Perhaps they can try it along with you to help you through it if' you're really curious but still kinda scared? :3

I'm pretty sure the cards are region-locked — i know you have to have PAL-region points cards for your PAL-region device, same for JP and NA Nintendo consoles that use points cards. as for same-region cards, if nothing else you might be able to switch your country and redeem the points that way. pretty sure i've seen people discussing switching countries from AUS to EU (or vice versa?) to pick up games that have maybe been released in one area and not the other, but don't quote me on that because i've never really been in a position to try it for myself :3

haha, i actually picked up an iPhone 3GS just yesterday — i needed it for the Square app so i can run credit cards on my own, and since it's my first smartphone i wasn't concerned about having the latest and greatest or anything. I tried a few of the Droid phones they had in the store (they have a Square app for Droid too), but i wasn't happy with the lag between menu screens, and even that playstation phone (the Xperia one) felt odd and bulky in my hands. i'm more used to the iPhone thanks to my mentor and his crazy love for Apple products, i guess.

ah well. i'm loving it so far, had no idea it had a Kindle app available. i'd kinda wanted a Kindle anyway but didn't want to deal with having yet another thing to carry around with me all the time, so this is a win/win for me :3
