Every Fire Emblem: Awakening cut-scene ever.

haha, this — especially the opening scene. that's what actually had me purchase the game in the first place, i absolutely, positively had to know the story behind that opening set of cutscenes. I also greatly enjoyed the animated cutscenes they added to Chrono Trigger via Final Fantasy Chronicles and kept for the DS remake. Ayla's intro was always my favorite of those, and then I also liked the one at the end of the game that showed Chrono and Marle's wedding. :3

That said, @pianomanfreak it's been too long since I've played GS:DD for me to say for sure, but I know for a fact the 'cutscene' you're talking about in Tierkreis is more along the lines of you watching a pre-scripted chunk of dialogue play out via in-game character sprites as opposed to actual animated cutscenes that are somewhat movie-like in nature...

Facepalms here are regularly replaced with images of cute puppies scratching themselves or 'sticklebricks', whatever those are — that's per James, as facepalms fall under the 'please post constructively' rule. I'm sure we can find better things to do than post stories about how our friends and family didn't know a certain detail about something relatively specific to a given hobby or profession, can't we? :3

... and there we have it, thanks @cookiex. @WiiDSmoker, if you have any further questions regarding your NNID and downloaded games, you may want to give Nintendo's tech support forums a try; provided you don't sign up for an account with your offending username, you may have better luck there regarding the technicalities regarding your Wii U, downloaded games, and switching around your NNIDs. If nothing else, perhaps NIntendo's support crew will be more amenable to dealing with you via e-mail; you could try getting in touch with them for help that way too. Best of luck to you regarding this particular issue!

Hey guys, I'm serious about ignoring the issue of his NNID and asking for honest answers, which is why I'm deleting comments from those of you who want to either state the obvious for the nth time or just crack jokes at his expense. If you're not interested in helping this person, please do not comment in this thread.

wasn't it a cross with SMT or something? the Atlus instability may have put things on hold until Sega took control, so maybe we'll start seeing some more about it once things settle down and get into their new groove :3

all right, all right — setting his current NNID aside, without Nintendo's customer service line to help them out they're sorta SOL, so let's see if we can't get him going again. As for the bottom line in this topic:

(a) is it possible for the OP to change their Nintendo Network username and regain unhindered access to Miiverse and whatnot?
(b) If (a) is not possible, is it possible for the OP to create a new, inoffensive NNID on the same Wii U and enjoy unhindered access to Miiverse and whatnot via the new username?
(c) if (b) is possible, will the OP still be able to redownload their copy of WWHD and/or play the original download without issue?
(d) is the game purchase tied to the NNID itself or the console? Will the OP still need to keep the 'bad' username around if they want to keep their copy of WWHD since it's already been purchased via that NNID?

We need definitive answers to actually help this person, so let's not joke around, please, guys. Thanks in advance! :3

theblackdragon

561. Posted:

since SM64's already been answered, in terms of SMW2, remember that the rest of the buttons were in use at any given time as you moved around — Y had yoshi eat things, B jumped, and A was for eggs. If you think about it, the controls were already pretty complicated at some points without adding in a separate 'dash' button to have to press, lol, and if you did have to have a separate 'dash' button it would've been pretty inconvenient to get to with Y and B already in use for other things :3

@GuSilverFlame: The request is as valid now as it was when I posted it, and same for when the mess went down and even back when the thread first started. Everyone in here who either participated or thinks it's okay to rag on each other like that needs to knock it the heck off and get back to chit-chatting civilly if not pleasantly, or I will be forced to end this thread.

It's one of those 'this is why we can't have nice things' situations, guys.

Meh, I quite like it; it reminds me that the people here aren't mindless sheep.

It's one thing to be a 'mindless sheep'. It's another to repeatedly violate our Community Rules and wind up banned.

Food for thought.

@garywood: I'd thought the shield and my comment on page 1 of this thread that I was indeed a moderator here would have been proof enough that I am one, but since it's apparently not, yes — I'm the Community Administrator, which basically makes me a glorified moderator. Philip_J_Reed is also a moderator here, idk if he's stepped in or not after i replied to him that one time in here, though, lol.

also, I have no idea whether you've 'admitted that [you're] probably wrong' or not. like i told skywake, I haven't been paying much attention to the latter pages of this thread (since I knew it was all tail-chasing anyway), but even now all I see is you arguing what at first glance looks like the same stuff against the same people, so if nothing's changed now, I'm not sure what that sort of admission even matters for in the long run. :3

He's not wrong, nor has he personally insulted you. He's stated the truth, you do want a debate where everyone agrees with you. Unfortunately no one's in an obliging mood, though, so now we've got eight or so pages' worth of tail-chasing going on.

I probably shouldn't be saying this, but I'm not so sure why you're giving banacheck the brushoff so quickly, because they've probably got the best idea out of the bunch. get a gift receipt for your games when you go through the line, then when WW comes out in physical form, take the gift receipt and exchange it (maybe at a different Target). As long as the game you're trading in is whole and unopened and valued at the same original price as WW, you should be good to go — and if you can't, just take it to a local GameStop and trade it in against WW. There's no way Target's going to let you get an eShop card instead of the third game, the reason they have these sales is so that they can move physical product. If they were trying to get rid of eShop cards, those would be on sale, not actual Wii U games.
