So today in school, me and my friend were talking about video games. We got to the topic of handheld gaming, and he stated that he wanted the DS brand to die. And then he said something that really made me mad. He said he wouldn't care if Nintendo went away. He wouldn't miss Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Luigi, or any of the Nintendo games. He then went on to say that not only mobile phones are superior over handhelds, but they are capable of making even better gaming experiences than the 3DS or PSP Vita. And finally, he stated that the future of the video gaming industry would be ruled by phones and PCs. I wanted to punch my friend in the face at this point.

Well, so what? He's got about as much chance of being right as you would if you said that Nintendo would someday be producing not only video games but actual professional fitness equipment, or if i were to say that someday Sony would dominate the video gaming market with their Xperia phones — only time can tell, and we're more likely to be wrong. In the meantime, play what you like and screw what anyone else has to say about it. Life's too short to focus on things that tick you off, y'know?

@WaveBoy: You're a smart guy, I'm sure Google will provide more than enough information to help you in your 'playing imported games' quest. Please understand that we do not discuss the means to do so here, though, because the only way is by 'gray-area' means that stand in violation of our Rules. Sorry to disappoint, but rules is rules, mang :3

what kind of TVs are you using? If they're not PAL TVs, that could be your problem — attempting to use a PAL Wii with a NTSC TV gives a black and white image only, no color.

/me dusts off the thread again, haha~

@Tasuki: Numero uno on the holiday list was probably the 3DS XL i wound up getting. hooray for that black friday sale Target ran, haha :3

@Unca_Lz: My favorite Nintendo character for a very long time was Yoshi. He (and all his multicolored friends) are still probably my favorites, along with ol' Bowser himself :3

@Maskeraid: typis is pretty congatious, or so i'm told :3

@Unca_Lz: no, i think i just changed your username for a bit lol

@ogo79: i'm not sure. you may want to check with the hunting authorities in your area, lol — don't wanna get fined for shooting lz out of season after all :3

@Ryno: is it true that WE'RE GOIN' TO GOLDEN CORRAL???!? not if i'm driving, there's snow out there :(

@Tasuki: i would hope he's replaced it by now, yikes D:

@GuSilverFlame: I do indeed enjoy the occasional explosion. also, fire.

@Kyloctopus: I prefer scarves. I already wear glasses for reals, lol.

@Jaz007: probably Q. i love Q :3

@Kyloctopus: I've already got a copy of Bravely Default in my 3DS, so that was about it, lol. i'm looking forward to that Moon update, too, i guess?

@OdnetninAges: my 'worst' probably wouldn't be everyone else's 'worst', but in terms of crazy crap, there this was one night where a kid I'd warned via e-mail and subsequently banned started spamming my e-mail inbox with e-mails containing nasty homophobic slurs and garbage nonsense, just over and over and over. His e-mail address was one of those provided by one's ISP, though, so I called them up and reported his activity directly to their abuse team. i had nearly 200 garbage e-mails before it was over, lol.

@Prof_Clayton: What turtle soup? You mean the soup I just ate? >:3

@NoUsernameHere: Sometimes. Are you a dragon?

@AnActualDash: 5. and then i got bored and gave up.

@GuardianKing: Making up the rainbow, duh. There's no black in a rainbow, that's how i get to laze around and clean up after you guys all day u___u

@Unca_Lz: idk, are you volunteering? I could go for some lz wings >:3

@Jaz007: I've never had the opportunity, I'm afraid. I had some friends who did some LARP stuff, but never had the opportunity to actually play D&D.

@Kawaii_Neko: No, I don't. I find him to be a horrible role model to his fans and it's a disgrace that people are so caught up with his every little move. I want very much for him to be deported to Canada and barred from entering the US ever again.

@Super_Gravy: Why, to ask me questions, you silly! :3

so whenever H and Stephanie come out at the beginning of a show and they do their little combined name-card thing at the bottom of the screen, i know the WWE logo is supposed to read as 'WWE' in text, but it doesn't come across that way — i swear the first time i actually looked at it, I read 'chief operations officer / Triple H / principal owner of / Stephanie McMahon' and I couldn't stop giggling for a good five minutes.

also, H vs. Bryan sounds like a damn good Wrestlemania match. I would pay to watch that match.

@DashingDan: I'm sure you wouldn't be so condescending if an official Nintendo representative had similarly asked for clarification or expressed confusion regarding your intent. Please play nice with your fellow users.

That said, I'm not sure if you've noticed the note at the bottom of every page here, but I'm afraid we're not Nintendo — we're Nintendo Life, an independent website completely unaffiliated with the Big N. If you'd like to get in touch with them to offer your feedback and/or suggestions for games, the best place to start would be to look over Nintendo's contact information and see which avenue best suits your intent. Best of luck to you!

I'm afraid you'll need to contact Nintendo directly to get the straight of their terms for indie developers — the best way to start would be to head on over to Nintendo.com, select your home country, and see what their options are for contact. Best of luck to you! :3

LISTEN UP, GUYS

user @TolbCityGaming is in actuality PokeBreederKyle, PokeFanBreeder, and/or @Meketek93, apparently a pro scammer of shinies (and apparently as Meketek93 he did scam at least one person here out of a shiny back in December). His FC (5386-8703-5926) matches reports from other websites regarding scammers and thieves on their blacklists. If you have added him and have scheduled any trades, DO NOT TRADE WITH HIM. If you have traded him anything and received your goods intact, congratulations on your incredible luck. If you have traded him pokemon but haven't yet gotten them back, best of luck to you in securing their return, but it may well be a loss, I'm afraid. Beware when trading with strangers on the internet, beware, beware, beware!

Always look up a FC via google before adding it to your 3DS in order to trade pokemon!!! I cannot stress this enough! I was able to figure this out by doing exactly that, guys, it takes two seconds and can help fend off major scammers like this guy.

I'll do my best on my end to keep him from re-registering for another account here, but in the meantime, these are the FCs to avoid adding or to remove from your Friend List:
5386-8703-5926 (Kyle)
1040-0338-7575 (supposedly his wife, 'Steph')
3023-5524-0117 (his own alternate 3DS FC)
4566-9044-5976 (he didn't seem to use it here, but this showed up on other sites as also being his)

Also, while I"m here (and since I know this post is going to leave quite a few of you ticked off in TCG's wake): some of you have been way too free with the profanity lately. Please stop, it's against our Community Rules. You have been warned, if I have to step into this thread to edit any more posts today I'm going to start handing down temp-bans. :/

To be honest, the only way to preserve a 3DS like new, is not using it at all.

Pretty much this... wear and tear on a machine during use is unavoidable, especially if you're taking it in and out of a case all the time to clean it. If you had wanted to keep it pristine, the only way would've been to leave it in its box.

Auksinis has a sound idea IMO; if you have the available funds and still insist upon owning a perfect Zelda 3DS for your collection, buy yourself another — and this time, leave it alone. Use the one you've got now as your regular gaming 3DS, it still works fine even if its looks are no longer up to your standards, right? :3

There's a FAQ up at gFAQs here that goes through all the available endings and their variations. All you have to do is not read through to the end of the text for each one if you don't want to know how they go before you've witnessed them with your own eyes. There aren't really any spoilers except for the possible variations (sometimes if you do certain things or make certain choices you'll get differing results through each of the major endings).
