You both know where the One Word Story thread is, and we only need one thread of that sort on the forums — we had a three-word-story thread a very long time ago, and One Word Story replaced it. Please feel free to participate there. Thank you!

@VincentV, @Progamer: you'll notice I've cleaned the mess out of this thread. It's One Word Story, not three, not sixteen, not two. No one else has a problem using conjunctions and small words like 'a' and 'an' as their submissions to the thread, and it's generally fast-paced enough around here when it gets going that it's not a problem for everyone else to have fun. Either play by the rules or stay out of this thread. This is your warning.

Also, @Progamer: Please stop turning every thread you hit into an FC-trading thread. We have a 3DS FC thread for a reason. Please use it.

Now, since I've wrecked the thread in the process, it's time to

@Progamer, @milkman12: you'll note this thread is much more condensed than it was before. if you've got something to add to whatever you just said real quick and no one else has said anything yet, just edit it in via the 'Edit' link above your comment. It keeps the clutter down in a thread and makes things easier to read overall. Thanks in advance!

that said, no events within a 100-mile radius of me, either. so much for that :(

Your Club Nintendo account has nothing to do with what games you've purchased on your Wii — those are attached to the Wii itself. The only thing that will probably happen is you'll lose your coins from the old account and won't be able to re-earn any coins for your WiiWare/VC games in the new account.

But @Slapshot and @PolkadotChocobo said they aren't RPG's.

They're not actual RPGs, they're JRPGs — the Japanese took the basic RPG model and changed it so much that it's no longer an actual RPG model anymore. Thus the 'J' in that acronym. It's like 'folk rock' versus 'punk rock' — they've both got the word 'rock' in their name, they both share some similarities, but they are otherwise two very different styles of music deserving of their own separate genre titles.

If we could get back to the main discussion now — which is Skyrim, not labels and semantics — I'd greatly appreciate it, Tendoboy. Thanks in advance!

a black screen could mean anything. if you had just selected a VC/WW game to play and the screen goes black for a strangely long period of time, leave it alone and the game will eventually load (i waited nearly five minutes once, it was weird, but it eventually loaded just fine, lol). if you were in the middle of a game and the screen suddenly went black, it could've just been a weird bug. you could've accidentally hit the power button on your TV remote for all we know, but this 'black screen of death' you speak of is not normally a Wii problem — overheating eventually gives you problems with your display, not blacks everything out. either way, provided your television is turned on, generally a restart will get your Wii running normally after something goes weird.

if you're truly that worried about your Wii, just contact Nintendo and see what they say — i'm sure you have them on speed dial already for your 3DS with as much as you fret over it. good luck!

its I think 6+ seconds of playing the song and you have to pay for it

actually, this article here about the music of 'Wicked' mentions a seven-note rule regarding copyright law. i'm not sure if that's the exact same situation as this, but six seconds' worth or a song sounds excessive in terms of being legally allowed to sample it or modify it for new use without credit or royalties paid to the original author.
