Yes, you'll need to send it to Nintendo if it straight-up doesn't work. No, you won't lose your Ambassador games — Ambassador status survives even a System Transfer on your part, so surely it'll survive if they need to replace your 3DS. If it causes freezing issues, definitely get in touch with Nintendo while it's still under its original warranty. :3

@Link79: FYI, If half the things you posted weren't either against the Rules somehow (usually with you it's profanity or insulting/flaming other users) or blatantly inappropriate for NL (as in this case with encouraging people to drink and drive), and if people would stop reporting your comments, I might be inclined to let them stand unaltered. :3

Devil Survivor never really showed any of that, though, and come to think of it, neither did 999 when it came to the uber-gory parts (i only mention 999 because it squicked the hell out of me, ymmv of course). Those games were more psychological in terms of how twisted they were; it required a bit of thinking to figure it all out. This one is very up-front and personal with it, however couched in cute-style drawings it may be — and that brings up another point, kinda... since it's so 'cutesy', will Nintendo be willing to release it and then deal with parental backlash once they realize exactly what kind of game they just bought their kid? (granted, that's in no way Nintendo's fault, but you know it's gonna happen, lol.) Devil Survivor and 999 were both pretty grown-up in terms of looks, gameplay, and reading comprehension required, but this has the at-a-glance look of something far less disturbing than it is when you get down to it, and it doesn't seem like the kind of game that would require someone to think really hard about what's going on in order to get through the game.

I think at the very least it'll be interesting to see if and/or where Nintendo chooses to draw the line in terms of their in-house censorship. Will they allow this game to be released as-is, will they require some graphical changes be made, or will they not allow it to happen at all? :3

@Oddy: La Mulana hit back in June for JP; it's slated for a 2012 release in the West iirc

That's exactly what I hate about roguelikes, and to be honest, after watching the gameplay trailer i pretty much lost what little curiosity I had about this game, lol. Plus, the gameplay trailer said that it was 'never the same game twice' in terms of the randomized dungeon — i'm really, really not a fan of random dungeons. Sorry, syko :3

the way I'm reading it, the OP is talking about the release of OoT3D and SF643D being spiked by those games already being available on the Wii VC, though I think they may be mistaking 'backfire' for some other term — perhaps 'conflict' (did the Wii VC stand in conflict, the Wii VC kinda conflicted, etc.)... it's fine in the 3DS section. :3

If you honestly believe that Nintendo had no plans whatsoever to release Xenoblade stateside before people complained, i've got some tiger-attack-preventing rocks for sale. i figure you'll be interested considering your apparent propensity for buying blatant BS ;)

indeed, and the same goes for the suburbs, really — sometimes you're in a nice area where the neighbors give a crap, and sometimes you're in a party kind of place, lol. our neighbors across the street usually have get-togethers at least once a month where cars line the cul-de-sac, but they've never been mean or a hassle otherwise, so we don't bother saying anything :3

@shingi: they're allowed to express how they feel about it. if you lean more in the opposite direction, why not post about what you'd be looking forward to in a 3DS release for this game or, if you've played it yourself, what you liked about it in particular? Reading reviews and stuff is one thing, but I like reading opinions from people I know here at NL who have played things too :3

@vay: the way i read those comments, the game alone being a reason not to purchase the 3DS speaks more of the game, not the system itself. also, i think both of them already own 3DSes (or at least Oddy, idk about gamesake for sure off the top of my head), so i'm pretty sure they're not saying they're not buying a 3DS because of this game possibly coming out for it, lol.

either way, to the few of you all waiting for explanations — this is what the internet is for. google is your friend, and it turns up all kinds of things, including Wikipedia articles that explain the plot in detail. in terms of the content of this game, it's not hard to put two and two together as to why someone would dislike it so much :3

I'm with everyone else who said they weren't holding their breath. not interested in anything they've got until we get us some Meat Boy on a Nintendo platform.

also, as to why it would possibly deter someone from purchasing a 3DS — hyperbole, guys. i just read the plot description on wikipedia, and it seems pretty sacreligious... I can certainly see why it would turn people off. :3

AuthorRe: Has anybody here had Lasik eye Surgery?
theblackdragonAdmin

theblackdragon

4,220. Posted:

You'll want to do your homework — you want someone who's got many, many lasik operations under their belt to be doing yours. Also, from what I've heard, just because you get this surgery done doesn't mean that you'll be glasses-free. Plenty of people still need glasses afterward, though their prescriptions should ideally be much less extreme than they had been before the surgery.

I've also heard that they won't do lasik for you if your prescription is too mild. They probably wouldn't do it for me, but my husband (who is legally blind without his glasses) has been wanting lasik for years now, lol.
