i'd go NA/EU, but that's just me and my inability to read/comprehend southeast asian languages talking (and also my love of actually having games released in my region, which is why i didn't suggest AUS). as for where to buy one, is ordering from the internet an option?

@Omega: same here, lol... i don't really want to know how many hours I've spent in games like SM64 or Lego Star Wars just running around and exploring, seeing what i can see, y'know? but games with multiple playthroughs, i usually wind up getting the bad ending(s) first and then finishing with the good ending(s), just because I can. :3

if you're interested, though, you might want to try keeping yourself to only four sun/moon cards anyway, if possible, just to test the 'hard time limit' theory (since it doesn't seem to be definitively confirmed on the internet, not from all the searching i've done this morning, lol).

you're going to have to play it through at least twice in order to see both good endings. what's the big deal about seeing one of the bad ones too (if it even comes down to that, haha)? plus, don't you want to fight him just to be able to say you've fought every boss in the game? :3

But then again, a Hokikimori wouldn't willingly hang out outside for a week, much less talk to "the media".

you mean hikikomori, and you're right — if he were that much a recluse, he wouldn't be caught dead sitting out for days waiting for the 3DS. he would've preordered, and that would'a been that.

by that 'if you take too long you'll get the bad ending', i think they're attempting to allude to what i just described without spoiling it to people playing through it for the first time. i read through all the FAQs GFs has available, none of them mention a hard time-limit.

@Faron: apparently if you 'take too long' (e.g. use too many of the cards), someone else winds up reaching Dracula before you and ends up turned into a mini-boss for you to fight. if you have to fight him, you're getting the bad ending.
note: i'm trying not to spoil the OP by naming names, he said it was his first playthrough :3

GameFAQs says to get both characters' good endings, you need to beat the game using less than four sun/moon cards. i'm not seeing anything about beating it straight-up within a set amount of time in any of the FAQs available.

Well since this is a thread about the subject, according to a Best Buy employee, the 3DS costs a whopping total of $9,999 in the store's computer until March 27th. This is so just in case Nintendo raises the price before launch, there would be no possible way they could under charge for the system. (I don't get it either) However, he then told me if a Best Buy broke the Street Date and sold the 3DS before the 27th it would cost $9,999. So if you see a 3DS being sold at Best Buy earlier, good luck affording it.

hahahahaha nice!

personally, i'm surprised they have the UPC in their system already, though... some stores won't have the item in the system at all until the release date (they won't be able to ring it up for you at all, therefore they can't sell it). :3

@Link79: as explained above, it has to do with it being fair for all retailers involved. If people are waiting in line for a midnight release for (insert game here) but hear that a store down the street is already selling it at 8pm, they're gonna head for that other store en masse and purchase the game there... that means lost sales for the store(s) who are adhering to the release date set by the publisher (or whatev').

i like my 6th gen nano. it's so tiny it can fit just about anywhere without me worrying about breaking it, the touchscreen works quite well/it's easy to use, and it can hold a buttload of music. i've also gotten some good use out of the pedometer, and i like how it's integrated with iTunes; it makes syncing music/playlists over so much easier.

then again, i haven't ever had a nice MP3 player before, only crappy off-brand ones, so ymmv. :3

@Link79: he actually wasn't a bad duplicate in Return of Jafar i think because he was trying to match Robin Williams still. Early on in the Aladdin SatAM series he wasn't bad either as i recall — again, trying to match Robin — and to be honest, he's never a 'bad' Genie, it's just that as he grew into the role, he stopped trying to match Robin quite so hard, so you can hear the differences easier. :3
