@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.

ffs, it's just a freakin' poll. It's not going to change anything, it's not breaking any kind of ground that's never been broken before, and it's not the end of the world if someone chooses to not take it as seriously as you.

The insults end here. Either lighten up or stop looking at what other people on the internet say about things you are familiar with if their opinions, joking or no, bother you so much.

i would second Kirby Super Star Ultra, Super Princess Peach, and New Super Mario Bros. wholeheartedly. Kirby does have some story-type dialogue, but the core game is easily playable without paying attention to that kind of thing at all — not to mention that KSSU has different minigames she'd also probably like. As for Starfy... i traded it in already, but iirc it had quite a bit of dialogue during the cut-scenes, at least, not to mention while meeting new characters and stuff. It was all comic-book style, though, and since it's geared toward kids there weren't any really big words or anything.
