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.

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

Gamers who think their idea of fun is the only one.

I really hope that wasn't directed at me. I basically said the same thing about people who are obsessed with FPS games. There is so much more to play than just FPS games. Some people need to expand their horizons and stop sticking to just one thing.

Example, I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy. I love Mario and Zelda games. I also love Mega Man. Platformers are my favorite genre.
But I also enjoy games like Portal, Burnout, Dead Space, Assassin's Creed, Halo, etc. All games you generally wouldn't find on a Nintendo system.

why does it matter how other people choose to game? you play what you want, everyone else will play what they want. life goes on.

when Super Mario RPG first came out, i begged my mom to rent it from Blockbuster for me. then i spent the next three days parked in front of the TV — the only time i stopped was when i had to use the can, when i fell asleep (on the couch, still in front of the TV lol) and then toward the end of the three days, when my mother forced me to actually go into the kitchen and eat something. i seriously did not eat for nearly three days because of that game :3

... the sad part is that we had to take the game back around that point, and i still hadn't even gotten to the Valentina fight. i'm a frickin' pro at that game now, but my first playthrough was sloooooow and i was such craaaap, haha D: D: D:

from the Nintendo Life 3DS FAQ:

What is Spot Pass and how does it work?
SpotPass will allow you to obtain free games, videos, and game data whenever you come within range of a Wi-Fi access point. This will provide Nintendo with a way to send out information and even free game titles to users without the 3DS owner having to do anything other than come within range of a wireless hotspot.
