sometimes there's a game that's better than one number's description but not good enough to match the description of the next one up... half points would be nice IMO.

Only thing worse than someone complaining about the VC being dead is someone complaining about the complainers. You really are showing yourself to be no better than the people you are complaining about. If you are still enjoying your 1 new VC game a month, then great. Don't worry about how other people feel.

I'm not a fan of encouraging unreasonable and incessant whining by being complicit with it.

If there is a reasonable grounds for complaining, then great, go ahead. But people that complain about the "lack of games" (there's hundreds), the 'death of vc' (it's not going anywhere) or 'no more games getting released' (they're running out of games to release, that's hardly the fault of Nintendo or the other publishers)
are whining without any good reason for it.

in this thread: the beating of a dead horse by both sides.

try contacting your local house representative or senator if you feel that strongly about corn syrup for whatever reason; this isn't really the place for that.

Yeah, no. I'm glad it's focused on Jack and Barbossa, because they're the only reason to watch the original movies.

Yes, and particularly Barbossa for me. He's a bad@$$

freakin' thirded. i hated Bloom and Knightley's BS, especially during the final movie in the trilogy.

@Waltz: regarding the movies, you're not sure if it's happening or not because you knee-jerk every time someone writes an article on the internet. you jumped the gun with that thread and you're jumping it now -- even you're admitting that you're not sure whether what you're saying is how things are gonna go down, so why not relax and wait for the system to come out before you start up with this kind of thread?

the bottom line is that nothing is set in stone, and no one knows for sure if they're actually not going to be able to deliver. let's let things lie for now and come back to it when it's released and we know for sure how everything is playing out.

Good to know.

yes, because some of us really don't like our games winding up scratched thanks to a flimsy box, that means we're totally down with the eventual destruction of the planet. burn, earth, burn!

Lost Levels = hardest, holy crap
SMW = easiest considering you can beat it like eight or nine stages in iirc, lives are mad easy to get and you've also got Yoshi and sweet powerups at your beck and call, lol. SMB would take the easiest spot, but lives are harder to get if you warp your way through and the powerups are far more basic.

Go to the post-office (or whatever you Canadian's call it) and get the price and stuff that it will cost to send, send the buyer that info, he will send you money, you send the parcel.

I thought this was good advice actually. The only thing I would have added would have been: If you are unsure of the mailing price, do this BEFORE you list the item so, once the sale is complete, the item can be mailed expeditiously.

indeed. if it's too much of a hassle to bother with international shipping, you can always put something in the auction about how you will not ship internationally, Canada-only, yadda-yadda. Lots of sellers choose to not ship internationally, it's no big deal. :3

This is my analysis based on the news that has been out there, and what I myself has seen/ heard from Nintendo.

I think this is the key (lack of?) point to this thread -- It can't fail to live up to anything if it hasn't even been released yet. We don't have all the facts. No one has a 3DS in their hot little hands to mess around with and figure out for sure. Nintendo has months to write the software it needs to cover every single doubt and fear expressed in this thread, and even longer if you consider the fact that, just like the DSi, the console (and its apps) will likely be updateable. Just because we haven't heard much yet about how the promised online revamp will affect the 3DS doesn't mean said revamp is not happening.
