More like "Hey lets give Platinum Games a try with our AAA franchise! They can make it into a hardcore hack 'n slash game and have as little Metal Gear resemblance as possible." Mario works for other genres because he's Mario. Metal Gear is no Mario.

That's like taking Zelda and making it into a hack 'n slash. Ditch the puzzles, the exploration, the variety, and lets make a linear, repetitive, button mashing adventure! :D

Before I forget, Metal Gear was once a card based game like YuGiOh. It was called Metal Gear Acid. Remember how well that did?

last i checked it wasn't 'your' Metal Gear to do (or not do) anything with. If you feel it was perfectly wrapped up and ended already, don't buy it. problem solved? :3

@Master-Nas: Your Wii is NA, not EU, therefore NoE will not be able to help you with it at all. Any repair work or support from Nintendo will have to be done through NoA. Their contact information may be found on this page here.

I played and beat Mario Kart 7 and tried to get into it, but I realized how horribly flawed this whole game is: you are bombarded with car-stopping items, and Wi-fi is the biggest load of crap: players literally WARP to the end of the track. The more I play it, the more I hate it.

it's one track with the warping glitch (and it wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo were able to fix it somehow). you can easily avoid it by playing in trusted communities, with friends, or by making sure to not pick Maka Wuhu while playing Worldwide (as opposed to randomizing). if it still comes up, you can either play it through (it's a great track) or force a d/c by going the wrong way; whichever floats your boat. Also, idk what MK games you've been playing, but Mario Kart has always been about bombarding other players with car-stopping items. learning to avoid them takes practice. if you prefer Pokemon to Mario Kart, that's fine, but don't blame the game for your own hangups.

the good news for you is that MK7 will probably trade in for a fat chunk of store credit if you want to go that route, or you can probably eBay it for full retail price if you prefer. Pokemon games, not so much :3

@Master-Nas: Sometimes it takes a few days for them to get back to you, but if you and your father are OK with waiting as opposed to resolving the situation ASAP, it's your choice. Either way, you need to be contacting Nintendo, not asking the internets at large for help. :3

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that you can only vote for one of the 3DS choices, but you can vote up to whatever the limit of votes was set for that one choice... e.g. in this situation you can vote for Option A with both voting purchases you made, but you can't split your votes between Option A and Option B if you were split between wanting two different types. perhaps that's where the confusion happened?

You can either call Nintendo or your father can call his credit card company and dispute the charge. Your best bet would be to suck it up and call Nintendo, though.

The only thing we can recommend is patience, I'm afraid — if an error occurs, try again in a few minutes, or an hour or so. It kept giving me errors when I first attempted to update it, but an hour later it went without a hitch (though slowly, haha). If you think something is really wrong with your 3DS, contact Nintendo.

If you'd like to continue discussing the update, please use this thread here to do so. Thank you! :3

it's actually Nintendo's lack of support for this service. It's a common connection type with very large corporations that is support by 90% of smartphones, probably 100% if they were manufactured after 2010. I work at a university with the exact same setup. When I connected to the hotspot for the first time on both iPhone and Android phones, it downloaded some sort of certificate and prompted me for a username and password rather than the security key. Nintendo could probably update the firmware to support this, but I doubt they'll see it as necessary.

it may be common, but requiring a special username/password is still on the corporation (or university), not Nintendo. the 3DS does what it says it does, and nothing more.

I have to disagree with Mahe — I have My Life as a Darklord, dropped another $20-some on DLC for it just to get through the game, and hated most of it. It gets horribly tedious and you honestly cannot get through to the end without purchasing DLC, which should've been a warning sign to me in the first place IMO. only go for Darklord if you are a die-hard fan of tower-defense games... if you're just looking around for something fun and could go either way on a TD game, avoid Darklord and go for My Life as a King instead.

@Mickeymac: it's going to take an absolutely, positively amazing game to regain the fans' trust, though. the wedge has been driven between Capcom and their fans, and any negative cracks in whatever they come up with next will be blown wide the hell open by the rabid fanbase. half of how you wind up feeling about something, whether it be a book, a movie, a TV show, a play, a visit to a park, anything, is your mindset and preconceptions before reading/watching/getting there/etc. they've lost what positive high they had beforehand with a fat chunk of their existing fanbase, and so they're going to be judged by a far harsher scale than before. again, if they can't absolutely, positively blow people away with whatever bone they throw the public next, Mega Man is pretty screwed.

@Mickeymac: maybe if it'd been separated by a span of years and if the creator of the series himself had felt it worthwhile to stick around, sure. he bailed, though, and then the two cancellations... Mega Man's in trouble, whether you choose to ignore it or not.
