ARMSHRIFT.

(a) You mean 'Armsthrift', literally 'arms' + 'thrift' — the idea of being careful with one's weapons to the point of extending their usable lifespan. 'Armshrift' is not a word.
(b) Not every character can learn Armsthrift.

Seriously, it's hard to choose a 'least favorite' weapon, i know as well as you do that they're all great fun in their own way when put into the right hands. However, if i absolutely, positively had to choose, for me it'd be the glass ones — that's all i was saying.

Hey guys, be careful — when you @ someone (e.g. @TrevorS4Kicks, where their username turns into a clickable link to their profile here at NL), that user will have an e-mail sent to their inbox letting them know someone mentioned their username in a comment. If you quote a post with two other users talking to each other via @ mentions, you'll be sending e-mails to both of them even though you may not be talking to one of them. If you're quoting another user's post to reply to it here in the thread, please edit out any @ mentions to unrelated users; let's be excellent to one another and not fill each other's inboxes with what will amount to useless spam. Thanks in advance! :3

@LordJumpMad Hahaha nice you've been paying attention to that (I'm not using sarcasm here)

it's not 'nice' so much as it is 'annoying', mainly because you haven't really been adding much of importance to warrant the revival of the threads in question. if you could knock it off, that would be great. thanks in advance!

As for conveying sarcasm over the internet, good luck with that — the best-laid plans of mice and men often go misread where the internet is concerned. You're better off either being as straight-up as possible with people or being cool with having to explain yourself to people all the time; expecting people to know for a fact that you were just joking doesn't really work 100% of the time via text only.

I'm not sure what's going on in here, but if it's the original history of SMB2 you're after, the game was actually released first in Japan as Doki Doki Panic — you're right in that it had originally been pitched as a SMB game, but SMB2(JP) had already been released, so they went ahead and used the pitch for DDP instead (as part of their contract with some company — DDP is technically a licensed title, not Nintendo's own IP iirc). Then, after making the (mistaken) decision that SMB2(JP) would be too hard for western players, they retooled DDP into SMB2(US) for release stateside, and it was so popular they wound up bringing it back to Japan as Super Mario USA.

Hope this clears everything up for you :3

Ooooh "your contact us"..... Anyway, why didn't the mail readers here tell him this site couldn't help him?

idk what's going on, but I haven't seen any e-mail like this in my inbox.

That said, we would have done the same thing lz did — forwarded 'em on to Nintendo proper.

I will say that the one or two times I've had to get in touch with Nintendo myself via e-mail, it took them like a week to get back in touch with me. As for phone, I was able to get in touch with them the same day, so I'd keep trying if I were you, @WolfHowlX. I'm sure as soon as you get through to someone they'll be able to help you get that extra charge reversed.

You may want to keep in mind that reversing credit card charges usually takes a couple days to go through, though, so even if they're able to immediately put the chargeback through, any added delay will be on your bank or your CC company, not on Nintendo proper.
