@Scissors: i always had a problem with horizontal slices in Okami and i had no idea why for the longest time... i was always frustrated as hell, and the Z trick never worked for me at all. crossing off demons' names from those lists was a nightmare, lol, but i finally had an epiphany during the second battle with you-know-who, where there's that big sequence of slashes along with Susano... i remember i was sitting close to the TV and it drove me up a wall that i would constantly eff up this one horizontal slash, so i got pissed and stood up, went to a spot behind my chair, and slashed away with huge motions... and it worked! a little bit of experimenting at that point made me come to the conclusion that i was sitting too close to the TV in general :3

Some of our users identify within the spectrum of autism, yes. However, this sort of discussion invites commentary from trolls and people who do not understand, and (like discussions about religion and politics) goes downhill far too quickly. If you'd truly like to discuss it, sugoisabarashi, you're more than welcome to link to a personal blog post (or some other place under your control, not NL's) in your signature and invite users to discuss that way. Thank you! :3

haven't the patents expired for the SNES and prior? pretty sure if the patent on something has expired, cloning it is legal. you'd still want to go with the genuine article if possible, though.

@Wheels2050: no, you're right on the money — the keyboard/mouse combination is there for a reason IMO. as for innovating it, hell, they make gaming mice and keyboards that give you even more buttons or specifically-placed buttons to use if you want, haha. keyboard/mouse is an incredibly popular and easy-to-use method of controlling games, it's downright necessary when it comes to MMO gaming (due to the amount of buttons needed, really) and people seem to prefer it to options (gamepads and joysticks) that are also readily available. if it ain't broke, they're not gonna fix it.

As for the rest of the argument at hand, this thread has gone from HD vs. SD to 'Move is a Wii ripoff' to 'xbox vs. sony vs. nintendo' to 'why have FMVs, i don't like them' and now to noninnovation in game controls. If you'd just like to rant about why the current gaming world bothers you, Tendoboy, please feel free to get a blog and link to it in your signature — that way the only people you'll suck into these inane circular arguments of yours will be people who know what they're getting into when they attempt to convince you of anything. This has gone on long enough, though, and it's time for it to end. Thank you! :3

There are other videos straight-up showing how to take apart a DSi... perhaps one of them will help? that way you can at least see what connections you need to check. If you've made a habit of opening your DSi to poke at its innards, you may have knocked a wire loose that needs re-soldering or something if things are indeed spotty with it.

Guys, this is one instance where if you don't have anything nice to say, let's see your designs. These are being posted just to give others ideas about monsters to use in potential Swapnote-based RPGs — there's all kinds of things that can be imagined for these games. Can't draw one yourself? Describe one! Make up your own monsters if you don't like the ones already posted here, and let's keep the namecalling out of this thread.
and before anyone asks, i've already edited it out, move along plz :3
