American business is harsh...it's their way of doing it.

what does 'American business' have to do with any of what Raylax said? pretty sure he was denouncing the people poking fun at her for her appearance, not so much how Disney goes through cute little starlets like water.

Jesus. You guys are all over them like a rash when they're 'cute', then she puts weight on and suddenly she might as well have 'insult me' tattooed across her head. Could you lot possibly be any more shallow? Regardless of what you think of her music or the characters she plays, or what Disney has done to her, she's still a person, and her life doesn't revolve around looking hot for the benefit of leery men. Y'know, this is exactly why people end up making themselves ill for the sake of their appearance.

Quoted for truth. There's nothing wrong with that girl other than that they caught her with her eyes half open.

Does Flux have a boss mode? I started Transition and, instead of how it usually begins, it said "boss" and I had to battle the final boss at the start of the stage. You could tell it was the start of the stage as it had that planet flying around in the distance as usual only it was the boss instead.

Transition? Flux has Epiphany, Perception, and Catharsis... Transition is the first level of Beat.

lol, it sounds like you should've sold the games to your friend if he wanted to pay you more than the going price for 'em. you looked the prices up and were satisfied with what you got, so tell 'im to stfu about it already, lol. :3

as for the childhood games, idk... i'm kinda in the same boat, haha — i've got boxes of crap i haven't touched in years either. i still keep it around in hopes i'll have a house someday where i'll be able to display it all properly again.

I still find that kind of depressing. :(

haha, i don't. the beauty of it is that that's ok, though — in the end, it's up to each of us to make of it all what we will. :3

as for why use 'game over' instead of 'the end', though... IMO it made more sense in terms of the game itself (and it being a game, even), since that's the same 'game over' screen used in each of the other games [that featured straight-up game overs; i don't believe Runner did]. it was part of the 'letting go' that we are forced to accept, that CV's game is finally over.

@BleachFan888: It's a decent theory, but it completely ignores his friends.

in Core, he learned he wasn't alone, but everyone else he came across looked just like him in Void. I saw Runner as more joyful than escapist, at least at first... he's running through a world of creatures and objects fantastic and new, meeting all these friends he's never come across before, but this time around one of the bosses also comes to life — Mingrawn Timbletot.

After finally conquering the city with his innocent love of everything presented to him, Mingrawn reappears to CV and co., incorrigibly full of hate. CV tries to make peace (the heart) but Mingrawn wants no part of his friendship (the skull, the 'no CV' figure) and mockingly states 'you are not a man' before flying away into the sky... and everyone else follows.

they fly through space together, the group of new friends, until Mingrawn shows up again with hatred and death for CV on his mind, and CV seems to finally snap and respond in kind. he starts with 'determination' to take Mingrawn out so that he won't be able to hurt himself or his new friends, gradually working his way through the steps of finding and taking him out... through 'patience' and 'desperation', then 'frustration', 'anger', and finally he 'fall's from his former state of grace. IMO, he figured that if Mingrawn had it in for him he'd also wind up attempting to take out all his newfound friends... Fate to me felt as if it started out with CV attempting to protect himself and his friends by merely taking Mingrawn out just like any other boss, but it got too complicated for our poor CV and finally he wound up sacrificing himself to protect everyone else (thus the tear from CGV and his ascension).

the heartbeat-esque line in 'fall' faltered and faded into a flatline a few times just before the final boss of Fate iirc, so naturally there's no more 'heartbeat' vibrations in the controller in Flux. it doesn't so much feel to me that he's escaped the natural beat of the music as it does reinforce the fact that our beloved hero is no longer among the living. his friends have abandoned him because where he's going, they can't follow... he's going home, back to the beginning of it all (thus the Beat-style gameplay). I do agree that the end sequence is pretty much what you make of it (create your own music without being tied to either success or failure — quit, don't quit, noodles, don't noodles), but I don't agree that he's a dying old man in the end — to me, it felt as if he sacrificed himself in the prime of his life, and now he's left to reflect on his choices and realize everything will be okay in the end. he can't do everything, and he's done his part in life... now he just has to let go and allow nature to take its course, and the cycle to eventually begin anew.

it's not a "big, fat, depressing 'GAME OVER'," it is what it is, and there's nothing we can do to stop our own eventual 'game over's, either. the only thing we can do is make the best choices we can make and try to do right by ourselves and by our friends as well.

anyway, i ramble, and i've probably missed some random important crap and managed to totally go off-topic somehow, but that's pretty much my take on the end half of the series — the joy of runner, the innocent determination that eventually led to his fall in fate, and the gradual acceptance of flux.

pretty sure Nintendo has already stated that existing points cards won't be usable on the 3DS — they'll be releasing entirely different cards for the new shop.

How would they even be able to claim the level of "bug freeness" let along quantify it?

they could be quantifying by (number of bugs worked out before release) vs. (number of bugs patched/fixed after release)... that'd be a lot of pre-release bugs worked out to be able to claim it was '99.9% bug-free' at release, though, haha.
