@TheGameMonkey28: HolyMackerel is taking MrMushroom987's comment to its logical conclusion — MrMushroom987 was the one complaining that Nintendo ripped off Apple.

That said, Apple has had touchscreen devices for waaaaaaay longer than the DS has been out — anyone else remember Newton?
Newton devices were held vertically, though, so i guess Nintendo can't be seen as ripping them off with this one :3

@Rift: we don't know that they 'never will' regain their memory, and therein lies the problem with leaving them to their own devices. not all forms of amnesia are permanent, and there's no way of knowing whether or not an amnesiac will ever regain what they lost — if that person were to spontaneously recover, who knows how many more people they'd wind up killing before they were captured.

regarding what's 'fair' to the individual — i think at this point in the scenario the rights of the individuals around this hypothetical person take precedence over the rights of the hypothetical person — they had their chance at a normal life and blew it. potentially putting more people at risk out of 'fairness' would be ridiculous. they lost their memory from a blow struck during the raid that brought them to justice, and they wouldn't have been in that situation in the first place had they chosen to not commit whatever murders or other heinous crimes they'd committed beforehand. they brought it on themselves, it's on their own head. can't remember? that's okay, we'll do our best to help you (so that we can put you on trial).

@BlackFira: you cloned yourself with memory intact. had he been born a complete blank and given the opportunity to form his own memories and live his own life separate from you, maybe you'd have more of a point, but as it stands he's still you, with the same mindset, ideas, and capability of doing whatever heinous crime(s) you committed all over again should he ever recover from the amnesia. lock him in a max security facility until he remembers (so that he can be tried and convicted properly) or dies, whichever comes first.

how do you 'test' for amnesia? i'd be interested in how they would prove to a jury beyond all reasonable doubt that such a notorious person actually had amnesia.

that said, honest-to-god amnesia or no, there's always the chance they would remember who they were down the line and start making trouble again, so I think it'd make more sense to put them into some kind of maximum security facility possibly receiving appropriate care and/or rehabilitation until such time as they were able to remember who they were and be put to trial, and if they never could? they'd never get out, so it'd be like a life sentence anyway.

Hold down the power button until it finally shuts off.

Alternatively (provided your 3DS isn't actually frozen...?), you can either close the 3DS and reopen it or press the home button to go back to the main menu.

SAGA's getting a Wii disc release too?!

from http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/26724 :

In addition to combining the six original games in one package, the Wii disc version will have a number of extra features, some not even found in the 3DS version (which will, to be fair, include 3D effects, portability, and touch screen controls for some of the games). The console compilation will have an art gallery, video gallery, and audio gallery, plus a special text message/commentary from creator Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games on each of the titles. More importantly, there will be new difficulty levels for each game. The biggest addition is a set of 120 new challenge levels, made up of 20 for each of the six games in the set. These will demand absolute perfection from the player, but they are kept short (possibly very short) to avoid frustration.

wtf, Gaijin, i love you guys to bits (ha, bits) but i don't want to have to buy these games for a third time over. gdi i want that text message/commentary soooooooo bad, though... sigh.

you have to actually use the tool from the DSi itself (after updating, go into the DSi Shop and download the tool — it's in with the 'Free' games). the 3DS is just there to receive the game, if that makes any sense.
