I'm sorry you're upset by misinformed and sometimes downright ignorant comments on the internet, Mr.iwantwiipoints, but the Nintendo Life forums aren't really the place for this rant. Your own personal blog would be best — you can even put a link to your blog into your sig if you like. :3

they weren't able to duplicate the issue i was having with my DSi when i sent it in (figures it wouldn't act up on cue for them, lol, just for me...), so they just replaced it for me free of charge because mine was still under warranty. just go for it, what do you have to lose? :3

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

i'm agreeing with chiwii — that site is weird. when i put in my zip code, it shows one location that apparently has a retail kiosk, but when i try to click it for more info nothing happens. i looked on the actual Google Maps site in the same spot, and it turned out to be a pool and spa retail store. wtf, why would they have a 3DS... and why is my local Best Buy not on that locator at all, since it totally has one? haha~

again, like chiwii suggested, i think the most accurate indicator is going to be calling around. :3

my Best Buy has a kiosk now, yay... but it only had pilotwings demoing on it. never been a huge fan of pilotwings anyway, so maybe that kinda killed my feelings about it, or maybe it's because i'm not really prone to buying into mad hype anyway, but i wasn't terribly impressed — just felt like a new console to me was all. i couldn't really get the 3D to work well (i'd finally gotten it set OK for third-person flying, but then when i switched to a first-person view, i couldn't get the 3D to work for my eyes at all, which was totally weird :/).

something i thought was interesting, though, was that when i moved my head out of the 'sweet spot' for 3D viewing, the screen looked 2D; i'd been wondering how moving out of the sweet spot would work and whether or not it would be too disorienting, so that was good to see. 2D play looked great, though.

i do like the circle pad quite a bit, it felt nicer than the DSi's D-pad. and i also liked how the demo was timed, so people can't just keep on playing and playing when there are other people who want to try it out, haha :3

also, the 3DS at the kiosk was the blue one... it was rather smexy IRL. if you're on the fence, i'd try and see it in person at a kiosk if i were you before writing it off :3

^ this is apparently how they're explaining the situation via TV to young children in Japan — as an extended poop joke. it's hilarious to us, but i bet it's working pretty well to calm kids' fears over there. god bless the japanese, lol :3

@Starlight: the OP's console would still be under warranty, though, since they only bought it maybe half a year ago. if it's still under warranty, Nintendo'll take care of it free of charge if they deem a repair order necessary, shipping and all.

@Link79: you can tell the difference between the two easily, especially after he starts warming up to the role during the Aladdin saturday-morning cartoon, i think — he kinda started making Genie his own, which isn't a bad thing, but his voice isn't as liquid and smooth as Robin Williams', not by a long shot.

anyway, he's pretty much done all voicework for Genie ever since he replaced Robin Williams, plus he's Scarface in The Batman, he did Earl for Cow and Chicken, and he was Megavolt in Darkwing Duck. the man's done a lot of voicework over the years, lol. :3

Remember, the Wii VC was eventually updated with new systems, and it was only announced this month that Game Gear and TurboGrafx-16 games would be hitting the Virtual Handheld. GBA games hitting the VH has neither been confirmed nor outright denied, so let's be patient and see how things pan out, shall we?

In the meantime, if you'd like to let Nintendo know how you feel directly, you're more than welcome to contact them. :3
