pretty much this. just read through their reviews, check out the neutral and negative ones, and see if what they're complaining about is all things you can live with or things the seller has no control over, like scuffs on used merchandise or product being held up by the mail system.

Goat's milk is also supposed to be closer to human breastmilk than formula made with cow's milk, easier for babies to digest and all that.

you forgot to factor in how many of those people aren't 18 yet btw ;)

The real question here, I think, is will StarFox ever make contact with a real person IRL, or will he forever be stuck in his room, posting silly questions to the Nintendo Life forums? I'm guessing the latter.

@CB: ah. in that case, i found the 'gameplay' somewhat cumbersome. even in other 'artistic' titles (the Art Style and Bit.Trip series-es are what spring to mind, really) there's a very clear focus on the game and what you're doing as well as the music and stuff. in Between you're kinda left to explore and figure everything out on your own (unless you read about the game beforehand, of course, or are working together with your partner, which they specifically tell you not to do)... also, with the controls spread so far out (seriously, B and N are nowhere near W, and then having to control the arrow keys as well) it's just an added pain in the butt when you're on a roll and know what you have to do. i get that he's trying to get you to think, but he could've made getting around a bit easier on you. other 'artistic' games have featured much more fluid/intuitive controls, so there's no excuse IMO.

granted, i'd imagine it's a bit easier on the DSi, but i'm nowhere near inclined toward trying it out now that i've played the PC version, lol.

honestly, if you're correct in that there is no reward or end of the game when you've got the tower completed... seriously, it's not even a game at that point, just an interactive work of art. that's not a bad thing if it's what you're interested in, and there's certainly precedent for this kind of thing as DSiWare -- the Electroplankton series has about as much of a point on a gaming level. however, it's not really for me, and I do feel that Nintendo is doing people a disservice by advertising and selling these titles to the average joe as "games" as opposed to the works of art they are (which is exactly how i felt about Electroplankton when it hit the DSi Shop).

@CB: it's just something that would take far too long to hold my interest... i've got two jobs and the forums to keep track of, and by all rights i should've been painting instead of mucking around with that game, y'know? if it were possible to do it all on my own, sure, i might like it, but depending on someone else to also stay interested for long enough to keep going doesn't really inspire me to keep going with it. If there were a way to save your progress and play in chunks here and there, or even a relay system (where you could play when you could, and your friend could play when they could if you've got different schedules), again, i might like it more, but as it stands i wouldn't be able to recommend it, myself.
