Re: Was Goldeneye too dark?

theblackdragon

if it's a problem throughout the entire game, it sounds more like an issue with the brightness/contrast on your side. have you tried adjusting the levels on your TV?

Re: Earthquake experiences?

theblackdragon

@Magi: did one actually hit NC, or was it just the VA one? that was towards the end of August; i was at job#2 and they were doing some work on a nearby building at the time... we were wondering what the hell they were doing that would be shaking our building too, haha :3

Re: QotD #196: Would you be willing to lie to a court for a close friend if it meant saving your friend from going to jail for life?

theblackdragon

considering the unlikelihood of me being able to pull something like that off convincingly, I'd say the friend would be better off in jail for life without me accompanying him (for up to five years) for perjury.

Contact nintendo, send them your wii.

Edit: you'd think if it was so 'infamous' that you would know what to do, huh?

I already had this problem last year, a few months after I bought my Wii. They fixed it last time for free, and I really don't want to go through this again.

You may not want to go through it again, but it looks like you have to — you already know what to do, apparently. You'll fight with it, and it may work sometimes, but in the end you're going to have to contact Nintendo. Be quick, though — your warranty is updated after any repair to be a full year from that point iirc (at least that's what happened with my DSi when i sent it in) so don't let the new warranty lapse without having it repaired again.

Re: Mario game that requires the least amount of motion sensing control

theblackdragon

You realize you can get SMB1, Lost Levels, 2, 3, World, and RPG on the Virtual Console, don't you? None of those require any motion sensing controls at all. :3

That said, please feel free to use the Wii Recommendations thread to ask which Wii title to purchase. Thank you!

Re: Do you Blog? Share it!

theblackdragon

@Tasuki, Waltz: It's a very, very fine line to tread. Shameless self-promotion is one thing, but at this time i'm viewing this thread in the spirit of users opening themselves up to feedback and critique on each other's blogs, not pro websites, forums, YouTube channels, etc. Had Ouenben opened this post for the sole purpose of plugging his blog alone (and if he also had a history of namedropping it for no good reason), I would already have shut this post down. Until i'm told otherwise by The Powers that Be, i'm going to let this thread stand.

If you guys have (or if anyone else has) any further questions regarding this decision, please feel free to get in touch with us directly so that this thread can stay on-topic. :3

@Ouenben: No offense, but the explanation as to why we let this thread stand and delete/lock so many others needed to come from one of the moderation team, not you. Next time, please just report any offensive comments and let us handle it. Thank you!

We're still waiting on GBA games for crying out loud, lol. so long as DS games are able to be played in the 3DS, i can't see them offering full-on DS titles in the eShop. :3

My parents who live in Memphis actually have earthquake insurance due to the New Madrid fault line

Actually, at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/ , you'll see that the entire state of California is riddled with dots representing quakes, mostly minor, in the last 7 days. And most times there's a major US quake, it's in California. So, no, I did not get it from a "cartoon"!

I understand you're still freaking out over the earthquake that just happened where you're at, but come on — did you forget those earthquakes a couple months back in CO and VA? Alaska and Arkansas are also popular states for good-sized quakes to hit. :3

Re: Let's write a story one word at a time

theblackdragon

Hey guys, just stepping in for a quick reminder of how this thread works:

  • Please play fair, don't change the word of the person before you just because you feel like it. Give them the benefit of the doubt if you think their word doesn't make sense; perhaps in another context it would make for a valid sentence. Be creative!
  • No double, triple, quadruple, etc.-posting. Please be patient and wait for another person to add a word.
  • The 'story' is being written 'one word at a time' — that means you only get to post one word at a time.

Thank you all in advance for playing nice! :3
