I can confirm that yes, StreetPass and the pedometer both work if it's closed on a DS game. walk without fear :3

Unfortunately, there isn't a fully reliable forum search at this time — it's in the works, though. For now, there's either the search in the upper left corner of any Nintendo Life page (just above the tabs), or Google's Advanced Search will allow you to search for public results within a given domain.

haha, ouch. can't say i'm surprised that Okamiden is selling better than the first AAI, though — a niche title featuring entirely different gameplay than previous entries in the series and focused more on grownups compared to a long-awaited sequel to a bada** action/adventure title with kid-attracting power? it's no contest re: which is gonna sell better IMO.

That said, Professor Layton's doing damn well over here in the west, isn't it? with Level 5 calling the shots, even if they don't want to localize it for PW's sake, surely they'd localize it for Layton... i could give or take AAI2, but Layton vs. Wright is another story.

Just because you do not personally agree does not in and of itself make the review 'crappy'. We get that you're disappointed with the review here, but as always, we do encourage everyone to read multiple reviews if possible (thus the link back to Metacritic on every game and review page) before making a decision as to whether or not to make a purchase.

@Raylax: I speak from experience — my husband still doesn't know exactly how easy it was for me to get into his stuff and look at his saved IMs, locked journal posts, read e-mails, etc. and so forth because he did not password-lock anything and/or i knew his password(s). it's not something i'm terribly proud of, and i got lucky because he never quite figured it out... those times are long-since over for us, but CB's heading right into that part of his own relationship. seriously, if you choose not to lock up your stuff, don't be surprised when someone takes advantage, loved one or no.

also, i said nothing about clearing your cache, lol — if we couldn't handle each other's - ahem - tastes, we wouldn't be together now, plain and simple. i'm not dumb enough to think that goes for everyone, though — ymmv :3

@Tasuki: haha no way! i swear to god i could not figure out why our bread tasted so bad/why it smelled so familiar, but finally we remembered that the lady at the store had tossed them both into the same bag... i was angry because at the time we really couldn't afford to be wasting food like that, but now it's pretty hilarious :3

My husband and I met on the internet. we meshed great over IM and on LJ and stuff, but in person... i'm not gonna lie — it was absolute hell for the first three and a half years or so. that man can make any room into a man-cave in less than a minute, complete with dirty dishes on the table and underwear on the floor. we had our good times, but most of it sucked quite royally because neither of us had ever lived on our own before and he was out of work once or twice during that stretch. we had a lot of growing up to do, lol — getting used to constantly having someone around to talk to (and get annoyed at) takes a while.

some advice for you (from personal experience):

  • lock down your computer. when you're not there, the system needs to be locked so that she can't get into it, and even after locking your system, never save any passwords for auto-fill in firefox or anything like that. if things start to go bad between you, or if she winds up insecure about something, you don't want her to have access to your stuff — and vice versa, of course :3
  • it's okay to be wrong. being right all the time may be fun when it happens, but it's lonely afterward if the other party decides to get passive-aggressive about it.
  • speaking of which, passive-aggressive does not work when you're living together. both of you have to make a conscious effort to steer clear of that trap... it's so easy to go 'oh, well i won't do this for them if they're not gonna do that for me', but that sh*t only makes things worse.
  • respect each other's stuff. remind her not to leave your razor in the shower after shaving her legs with it, sure, but don't expect her to sit back and let you use her comb or brush if you're not going to clean it out afterward, y'know?
  • talk to each other. if you've got a problem, let her know. bottling it up and hoping it'll fix itself doesn't get anything done.

also, perhaps a more random tip we learned during our first year of living together — don't ever put dryer sheets and bread into the same bag at the store. the smell seeps into the bread itself, right through all the packaging... worst. sandwich. ever.

AuthorRe: Have You Ever Been Bullied?
theblackdragonAdmin

6,145. Posted:

Guys, while our hearts go out to those who have suffered bullying in their lives, the fact remains that this type of topic does not belong here. We at Nintendo Life are not licensed counselors nor psychiatrists, and there's a very good chance of some bad advice being followed perhaps by some of the more impressionable members of our community; same for bad examples being followed by the same.

If you need to vent and get it all out, creating a personal blog or writing in a journal IRL may help, or visiting your school counselor and bringing it up with them. Violence is never the answer, same for dropping yourselves to their level with insults and foul language. That kind of thing only makes a bad situation worse.

If you are being bullied, seek help IRL! Tell your teacher, tell your school counselor, tell your parents, whoever — just so long as you tell some kind of adult in a position of power who can help you. That's the only way this kind of thing will ever see resolution.
