I think he found the same text generator all the Indian spammers use when they try to hit NL and put in 'video games' and 'art' where they would normally have put in the name and website URL of their product, lol... that's my guess, anyway :3

according to what's been said already, only games with full analog movement controls (e.g. you would be using the touchscreen to direct your little dude and he'd follow your stylus everywhere you pointed it without fail and without automatically falling into one of the 8 directions) would be able to take advantage of the circle pad. anything else will be stuck with their normal four or eight directions. it would probably be a hassle in terms of games requiring precise control because you might think you're hitting one direction when you're actually off by a fair amount and the game registers another direction because of that, haha.

anyway, the only game i can think of off the top of my head that would really be aided by the circle pad would be SM64DS. i'll probably wind up giving that a shot whenever i manage to scrounge up the funds for a 3DS of my own. :3

Ball Fighter also used that form of multiplayer. It is possible; hardware limitations wouldn't be the problem I don't think. :3

i don't think they were so much 'wrong' as they were 'not quite clear enough'. they did answer your question, it's just not the exact question you'd been asking. :3
and heck yeah, i'd definitely be interested in seeing how SM64DS controls with the circle pad... might be worth actually busting it back out, haha

AuthorRe: Relationship to VC Forums?

as i understand it, VC-Forums was not officially run by the guys behind VC-Reviews (or whichever site of the three it was affiliated with; i'd assume VCR but we all know what happens when we assume, haha), rather it was created on behalf of the site by an outside party. Don't quote me on that, though; i didn't bother signing up for a username until the merger and i wasn't really paying attention to the community (just the reviews and news, haha), so i can only relate what i've seen other people mention before. :3

Either way, when the three sites merged to become Nintendo Life as we know it now, Ant launched the new forums to go with it. VCF was left to its own devices at that point. Some of the users who frequented VCF stuck around for a while and then left, others are still here today, thus the common usernames between the two places.

@TimSlim: I wasn't accusing you of being a bad parent, i was cautioning you away from making assumptions regarding the tastes of a little girl. so many people push their kids to do, play, or be one set of things when their kids would rather be doing, playing, or being something else entirely. :/

why not sit down and actually go through a list of games with your little girl to see what interests her? you can speculate until the cows come home regarding what a little girl (or boy) will want to play, and what they actually spend the most time with may still wind up surprising you.

The admins ask that you not post reviews to the forums, as Ant has a Reader Review function for the site in progress.

Until that time, you are more than welcome to put a link to your reviews (some users have a blog or another website they'll host their reviews on) into your signature, that way any interested users will be able to see what you think about stuff. People also generally share their opinions in shorter, discussion form on the forums already in the 'impressions' threads; feel free to join in and put your two cents in those threads if you like. :3
