@tendoboy1984: ffs, just preorder your copy and shut up, will you? it's finally coming out and all you're doing is complaining? really??? there's GameStops everywhere in the US, and if you don't wanna get it from them or order from their site, order it straight from Nintendo.com like the press release said. there, everyone's happy!
the mind, it boggles, seriously

@Ashflow: Remember that the transfer process is dependent on your internet connection — if there's any kind of hiccup, it could hang the way you're describing. Seems you've figured things out, though, so just keep transferrin' 'em one by one 'til they go. :3

@VJ: would you like me to go down the line citing review after review where our own people here have wound up in the same line of fire for rating something lower than another online publication? It's not what you're saying, it's how you've said it. "Yes! Today is great" is absolutely tactless.

@TBD I'm not celebrating. Trust me I party for much better things in life. Rather it's a relief. They didn't have much talent anyways. I remember one of the writers there copying another sites review word for word. Conduit maybe? I can't remember the game, lol.

(a) one writer does not a publication make. it was Water Warfare, btw, and the person who did it was fired over the incident. they also took down all of his other reviews on the site. what more could you have asked of them? they did not know what was going on, and they took appropriate action when informed.
(b) did you miss the comment where Waltz said he worked for them? come on, show some tact please :/

I like that they're openly acknowledging the two biggest problems with the 3DS launch — price tag and lack of first-party titles. Sounds like the Wii U might be okay.

The bottom screen shows your opponents' items. See a Bullet Bill? Don't race through the middle of the track. See a blue shell? Slow down so someone else goes down with you, or better yet, passes you up to take the fall on his own. If you play the game as pure racer, you are going to go down hard sometimes, but if you think of it as a Mario Kart game, all the supposed problems with the games have solutions.

You can also avoid the blue shell with good timing in at least one previous game. Time will tell if that is possible in this one.

exactly! hopefully avoiding the things you need to avoid will be just like MKDS, lol — but you're so going down on Sunday regardless >:3

as for pleasant surprises, Radiant Historia is mine. I've never truly enjoyed an Atlus game before, and to have RH freakin' blow me away with its damn-near-perfection like that was craziness.

biggest disappointment for me was Ni No Kuni being announced for PS3 as opposed to the DS version seeing an English translation. sigh. :(

(1) American electronics are generally compatible with Japan's voltage. Some things may be a little wonky, e.g. clocks running slower and radios not picking up stations, but your game consoles will be okay.

(2) the GBC, GBA, DS, and DS Lite are not region-locked. Any NA GBC, GBA, or DS games will work on a Japanese or European console, and vice versa. However, DSi and 3DS games are region-locked. While both the DSi and 3DS will play any region DS games, as for DSi and 3DS retail titles and DSi/3DSWare you'll have to purchase within the same region as the console.

(3) you can buy travel converters for voltage in most electronics stores here in the US; i'd imagine you can find them even easier in Europe. :3 You'll be fine with a converter.

(4) Nintendo's home consoles (the NES, SNES, GameCube, and Wii) have always been region-locked; you will need to buy same-region titles for them. As I explained above, from the Game Boy to the DS Lite, all of the handheld consoles have not been region-locked, but the DSi and 3DS are.

Because it's ****ing Mario Kart. I've never seen a series be more stagnant, and this is the only review I've seen that has the balls to call them out on it.

that's not balls, that's just their normal ~ edgy ~ style. don't mistake the two, lol.
