(a) the 'rehashed games' argument reached its peak with Ocarina of Time 3D's release, to be honest
(b) if you'd like to discuss Sonic Generations with other interested fans, please use this existing thread. :3

not to mention the buttons... those dual joystick things will be like little mallets against the nice, smooth screens of those iDevices. >:3

the 'brony' argument. it seems everywhere i freakin' turn lately someone else is getting on a brony's case (for serious, mind you, not just the normal teasing or joking around) for liking what they like. just knock it off, they've got the right to enjoy a kid's show if they want without being harassed, same as you. it's not about 'common sense', it's about quality television — of which there is a severe lack nowadays anyway. if all you want to do is troll someone else for something they like (and wrestling also falls under this category for me, durr hurr we know it's fake, we like it anyway, get over it plz), take that BS elsewhere, because it does nothing to foster intelligent conversation here.

also, people who make derogatory comments toward other individuals (or groups thereof), whether regarding body type/size, gender/transgendered status, physical/mental disability, race/ethnicity/country of origin, sexuality, age, and probably some other things i'm forgetting (all of which either cannot be helped, are part of a serious health condition, or the individual in question is perfectly happy with themselves and their current status and otherwise have not requested 'advice' or 'assistance' from others)... that kind of thing pisses me off to no end. you want to talk about heads exploding? i assure you mine does every time i have to edit something like that out of users' posts here at NL.
(that 'please show respect' part of the Rules exists for a reason, guys... please think of who here you may be insulting when you say things) :(

I highly doubt Nintendo would do anything for Android, IOS, etc. And to be honest I highly doubt seeing them going bankrupt over not doing this in the near future either.

Microsoft recently hopped on the smartphone bandwagon with their own OS (Windows Phone 7). WP7 hardly gets any support, so should they just give up on it?

where did you read that (or anything paralleling that) in what Crono just said? i don't get it...

jurassic park jokes aside, i love how people seem to think that this new thing will be used to help humanity... ha! you know what's gonna happen to this discovery? they're gonna patent it and then sit back and get rich as people have to pay them to use their new technology to insert artificial code into their animals. or, better yet, they'll make farmers pay big bucks to get specifically altered animals, and then they'll go after Farmer B when Farmer A's genetically altered bull gets loose and impregnates Farmer B's cow. god forbid nature progress as it has for billions of years or anything.

If these discoveries were honest-to-god made for the betterment of mankind, it would be one thing, but that's not how the world works. in the end, only the people with the ability to pay through the nose for this will have these animals, and there will still be hunger in the world. life goes on.

how much shopping do you really do? You just missed out if you have a Kohl's in your area — last week we marked down the most ungodly buttload of shoes i have ever marked down, and i scored a sixty dollar pair of pretty nice Avias myself for five bucks. If you don't want to spend that much on things, make a list of the stores the kinds of shoes you want are at and just watch for sales, sign up for e-mail newsletters (a lot of times they'll give coupons and stuff you can print out via e-mail), and just keep your eye out for a good upcoming deal.

as for serious brand recommendation, though, i've really never gone wrong with New Balance.

Give it a day or two and then check for it again. Sometimes the Shop Channel hiccups and you won't be able to find a game, and then it'll be back all of a sudden — i know i've seen it happen before myself.

Just to add to what James has said real quick — If ever you see an offending ad, please take a screenshot of it and include a link to that (upload it to imageshack or photobucket or some other kind of free image host if you prefer). Different ads get served to different parts of the world (even different parts of the same counttry), and the only way for Ant to absolutely, positively peg a bad ad is to have an image of which one it is. :3
