@Lun: I don't care if you believe it or not. You don't have to play with him, you don't have to include him, and you don't even have to like him, but until he's done something here at NL or with you guys in-game that's shady other than the fact that he signed up for an account shortly after another user was excommunicated (so to speak, lol the church of GE), I will be deleting/editing out any more insults leveled toward him. I can't see that smoove has done anything to deserve that kind of treatment yet (though cooldude certainly has, and i've been waiting all week for something like that to happen to be honest, lol). :/

@Demon: Cooldude said a few pages ago that he was on the west coast (PST). When I checked out Smoove, he's apparently been posting his FC on YouTube from his YT account, which clearly says he's in NY. Let him rise or fall on his own merits; don't let an unfortunate coincidence spoil your attitude toward him prematurely. :3
sorry to out your YT like that, smoove... it's just been a weird week D:

@Kid_Crono: SMB3 isn't hard, but if you're trying to do everything in the game and you're having an off day, it can still be challenging as hell. that's why i think its level design is better than SMW's, which i can breeze through even on the worst of days :3

oh it's on now, y'all, thanks to that 'how long is your...' thread i just deleted — right now my berzerk switch has been flipped by all of you people who make a gigantic stink on the forums about an offensive comment or topic and don't freakin' report it. You see that 'Report' link over every comment here at NL? CLICK IT IF SOMETHING HAS OFFENDED YOU.

WE DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S A PROBLEM IF NO ONE REPORTS IT.

fgs, i know it seems like I'm always around and i've got an eye on everything that goes down around here, but sometimes i'm not — i may be at job#1, i may still be in transit to job#2, or — god forbid — i may be sleeping. I find comments like 'Wow, still up?' and 'Does TheBlackDragon think this is funny? LOCK THE THREAD! This is disgusting!' incredibly offensive, and moreso when i check my inbox to see that not a one of you people posting in the damn thread bothered to report the damn thing. those reports don't go to just me, they go to everyone else with mod privs as well, and there's usually someone around to take care of the problem (especially one so flagrant) if I am not. please, please use the Report link!

I would like to thank Itsa for being the only person to get in touch with us about the problem. It was his use of the Contact Form that alerted me to the problem, and the thread was gone within seconds after it loaded on my computer. It's that easy, you guys >:[

and for those of you who may be afraid that someone else has already reported something and you don't want to bother the moderation team, I would rather see seventeen people reporting the same comment than have to stumble across and clean up/e-mail people over something that happened three days prior.

/rant
i promise i love you all and i'll be okay after i've had some lunch, but that absolutely, positively made my head explode just now :/

Never. Link talking would really ruin the series for me. There's a saying, something like 'it's better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and confirm it'... i'd rather people laugh at the Zelda series for being backwards and not modern by still featuring a silent protagonist than them try to cement a voice and (major) personality to Link and fail miserably.

honestly? SMB3, and that's the only reason it edges out SMW as my favorite SMB title. SMW is excellent as well, but SMB3 had some incredibly devilish levels and ingenious ideas within that still send me into fits when i'm having an off day, lol. i can breeze through SMW without losing a single life, though. :3

btw, i don't really count SMW2 as a Mario title, since Yoshi plays quite differently from Mario. Yoshi is in a (well-deserved!) class by himself :3

@my_point_is: school hasn't started up yet in some areas of the country. that could explain it.

@Demon: The difference between you and he is (a) you've been here for far longer, (b) you know better, and (c) we know you know better. He's new, he's obviously young, and I have to give people the benefit of the doubt for a while before i start bringing down the hammer. If you give it some thought, I'm sure you'll understand the reasoning.

That said, please, guys, listen to ltg on this one, as he's said everything i was about to say right now (because someone finally brought the current mess to my attention). Don't bother stooping to his level if you find him so far beneath you. Just ignore him if you don't like his style and he'll either shape up or be shipped out eventually.

As far as I'm concerned, this portion of the conversation is over. Any further comments that poke at him will be deleted. Please play nice, gentlemen, and if you really, really want to comment further, you're welcome to contact us. :3

@Matillion: DSi-only games are easy to spot — they come in white cartridges (in the US, at least; can anyone confirm outside the US too?) and use the DSi logo (with the little 'i' beside the 'DS', just read carefully). there were very few DSi-only titles released, though — there was System Flaw and some fighting game here in the US iirc. wasn't really interested in either one, lol :3

DSi-enhanced games you'll have to be more careful to spot... they should be marked on the boxes that they're DSi-enhanced, but if you're buying cartridge-only, just be aware that their cartridge codes supposedly start with 'TWL' (as opposed to 'NTR'... not sure if that's true for all of 'em?). there haven't been a whole lot of DSi-enhanced titles released either (mostly crap, really, IMO), but stuff like Pokemon Black and White and Sonic Classic Collection are DSi-enhanced, in case you were interested. just do your homework and be careful :3

(a) DS games are region-free, and can be played on any region DS, DSi, or 3DS.

(b) DSi-enhanced games will play on any region DS, but must be played on a same-region DSi or 3DS (there is no way to bypass the DSi-enhanced features).

(c) DSi games are region-locked, and must be played on a same-region DSi or 3DS.
