@Hardy83: what you're calling a 'Visa Debit' card is more often known as a 'check-card' here in the US mainly because you can get them from different providers, not just Visa. however, the term isn't unknown to us. most people would use it synonymously with 'debit card', though, just because now it's the norm for a bank to provide you a check-card as opposed to a straight-up actual debit card nowadays, and you can use it for the same purpose as the old dedicated debit cards anyway.

that said, you're technically correct — everyone saying they'll just use their debit card on the internet is wrong... you'd be running your check-card as credit over the internet, not debit, which is the advantage of having one in the first place — you dont need to be in a situation where you can input your pin code every time you want to use it. there's not really much point to having pointed it out, though, considering you seem to have known what they were trying to say anyway.

right, because calling attention to things is the exact reason we delete comments in the first place. no chance.

I wouldn't, but there are some reviewers out there who have the ridiculous notions of requiring a sequel to significantly innovate on the previous game, even on the same hardware. or take the relative genre competition into account when grading sequels.

i can't be the only one who finds the notion of holding a game up to its peers all that not-ridiculous, can I?

@VirtualConsoleGuest:
You can get in touch with the 'main guys' via the Contact Form at any time. Daz, Damo, and Ant are all still around, they just don't put in as much face-time as they used to. :3

That said, your idea to allow users to choose their own skin for the site has been noted, but please understand that Ant is a very, very busy man, and he's got things that rank quite a bit higher on the to-do list than prettying the place up. Again, you're welcome to take your request straight to the 'head guys' if you don't want to believe James when he says that there are no current plans to implement this feature.

As for the advertisements, if you're having problems with any of them (they make loud noises, they roll down on mouse hover to obstruct too much of the site, you feel the advertisements themselves are inappropriate for NL, etc. and so forth), the best thing you can do is take a screenshot of the ad and again, use the Contact Form to forward it on to the admins. NL doesn't pick and choose which ads go on the site, and depending on where in the world you are you are likely seeing different ads than everyone else. That screenshot allows Ant to get in touch with NL's ad providers and show them exactly which ad needs to be pulled for whatever reason.

Finally, regarding Earthbound's ESRB rating, if i'm reading this correctly, it doesn't seem to have been removed (yet?). :3

it's just a remake of OoT with 3D graphics. some people are excited for it, others are on the fence, and still more are pissed that Nintendo has nothing better than remakes to offer for the 3DS... it takes all kinds. If you don't think it's going to be the game for you, no one's forcing you to buy it. :3

If we see gamecube level offerings on the device, I'll feel that $40 is perfectly fine. It'll be interesting to see how much content Kid Icarus has, because that's looking like it could be the first game really worth that (at least first party).

pretty much this. no way i'd pay $40 for pilotwings or steel diver, and though i'm tempted to pick up OoT and SF, that price point still has me on the fence (especially because i've already played the hell out of both games between the N64 and VC). however, i would certainly be willing to drop that much on a Paper Mario game that manages to rival the original or TTYD in terms of new content.
