If people are wondering why I haven't shared the latest news surrounding the PS Vita, here's the reason: I have completely distanced myself from the PS Vita "community", which I find the most annoying bunch of people walking the earth. Even the Wii U owners are more passionate and positive about their unappreciated console...

The fun's really over for me. Why should I spend a lot of time and effort on such a disrespectful and spoiled bunch of people? No way in hell!

So, now you know.

All the best,

JGMR

If that's the way you feel, we'll see you around! Do let us know when you plan to be civil.

As you were, everyone! :3

They were just saving Earthbound for a "rainy day", and GCN along with the GBA will probably show up in a similar fashion as this.

Patience is a virtue.

@SCAR392: I think you're equating something good happening almost at random to a big corporation taking a proactive stance regarding goods, features, and services for which their fanbase clamors daily. I could just as easily claim that my pencil helps me to find lost items on the ground every time I drop it... just because I might see a penny or a cheeto once in a while as I reach for my fallen pencil is not a reward for any sort of patience with my pencil, nor is it proof that my pencil has listened to my pleas for it to find me money and food.

You can say 'patience is a virtue' until you're blue in the face, but you'll only be proven right should Nintendo make the choice themselves, which is almost a random occurrence nowadays. you can say things will 'probably' show up, which is actually the perfect thing to say in this sort of situation — if it hits, you can claim you said it would be so, and if it doesn't, well it's not like you claimed it would, did you? in no way is them giving us something cool once in a while proof that they in fact 'listen' to anything their fans have asked for.

@DeviousCrossing: Why don't we have a 'look of disapproval' smiley yet? Same reason there's no :3 smiley yet. it just wouldn't be as much fun anyway :3

@Void: Topics were sticky-able on the 16th of May, but i think you've figured that out already :3

@Pinkie_Pikpik: As of right now, we've got 2,377 user accounts banned.

@Kyloctopus: To be absolutely honest, i didn't pay much attention to the E3 festivities. I was too busy doing other things D:

@ogo79: Earthbound doesn't hate you... not anymore :3

@Crazybrain1: How do I keep track? I don't. I just let the questions all pile up until i've got a good number to answer, and then i go with it. or i wait until i'm finally reminded that i have unanswered questions waiting.
like this time around D:

@Jaz007: lz is right — if it wasn't for users who enjoy posting controversial comments just to get a rise out of other people instead of commenting constructively and being interested in having an honest discussion with others, it wouldn't be a problem at all. i do get annoyed, but it can't be helped.

Also, lz can't ban people, so LJM remains immune, it seems :3

@Nobodys_Angel: (I'm going to go ahead and take your question at face value as opposed to following along with the joke, if you don't mind :3) Actually, I've known lz for years now. He does hold the record for bans from NL, but they were all joke bans — he's never been seriously banned from here. As for why he was chosen as a moderator, I know he's familiar with our Community Rules due to the comments he's reported over the years, he can be genuinely helpful with new users and constructive when dealing with touchy topics when he wants to be, and given his background as a teacher, I'm fairly confident that he's got the patience, maturity, and level of professionalism it takes to deal with the sort of BS that goes on around here sometimes.

@MrsPickles: Naah, if we banned people just for being losers we'd have no users left >:3
just kidding~ :3

@lzQuacker: quit answering my questions, gb2 your own 'ask' thread >:[

@CaptainSquid: you say 'the' banhammer as if we don't have any other way of getting rid of such a person for such a horrible, terrible, unforgivable crime, haha...
y'know, since you asked and all. hypothetically.

@MMorales: whose posts make me laugh the most? probably LJM, MetallicDonkey/Krimbatize, and our own Philip_J_Reed are toward the top of that list. there are others, but as of right now those guys have consistently made me lol for a while now. :3

@Jaz007: no, but at least i've been able to sleep at night knowing that there's a chance someone else will be around to take care of things in my absence :3

@Happy_Mask: very happy :O :O :O

@Jaz007: Pop Culture Refs in AC:NL is easily my new favorite — i even put it into my signature. :3

@Bobhobob: I don't think so, no. putting together a video was such a pain in the tail end, and at least typing out answers is something I can do in my downtime at work — i can't record myself answering questions here at the shop. they'd make fun of me and probably moon the camera behind my back or something... it'd be awful D:

@Kylo: it's funny you ask that — i pulled a muscle or something sometime before this past Sunday, and it finally got so bad yesterday morning that i couldn't move my neck it hurt so bad and i couldn't sleep. thankfully i had the day off from job#1, so i could chillax and not have to move or go anywhere (and i was able to get in a nap), and finally i think i've pinned it down to something in my right shoulder. idk what i pulled, but having to work through it isn't helping at all, it still really hurts and there's not much I can do, but at least i know it's my shoulder now and not my neck that's actually hurt. i'm off of both jobs on Sunday, so i'm looking forward to another day of rest.

@Mahary: Ronin Warriors/Yoroiden: Samurai Troopers has been a favorite of mine for a very long time.

@KAHN: remind me why I haven't banned you again? I'm having a hard time remembering why I chose to let you slide :/

@LJM: I'll take your $5, but i'll need another $295 before I admit to anything...
hey, i gots ta get mah WiiU money from somewhere ;__;

@Big-Luigi: I'm still not sure on that one. I jumped into Sticker Star with both feet and absolutely regretted every second, so I think i'm going to wait until some of my friends let me know how Dream Team is :(

@Jaz007: Sounds I hate include fingernails on chalkboards, fire alarms, and LJM squealing as Emmy gets her claws into him.
the latter is fun to watch, just gotta have the ol' earplugs in or something :3

@Emmy: yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay~ :3

@Nobodys_Angel: I did indeed watch Power Rangers — i watched all the way up from the original series through Zeo. Turbo was where I stopped watching, when that little kid became the blue ranger; he annoyed the stuff outta me, and plus all the other rangers were replaced by other people. I remember I didn't like the series when it first started, my little brother was the one who was watching it, but then i got hooked, lol.

Also, my favorite anime again is Ronin Warriors/YST. My favorite TV show often fluctuates, but for right now let's call it at Hell's Kitchen since the current season is about to finish like next week or something :3

@Jaz007: idk, i've probably been working on 'em for a solid 45 minutes or so.

@Tasuki: Straight tequila is probably my favorite alcoholic drink (reposado plz), though if we're talking mixed drinks of some sort, rum and coke is fine. a long island would be better, though :3

@Kylo: You might be, especially if you haven't taken advantage of that deal yet. if you're interested in SMTIV at all, now's the time, my friend :3

@Nobodys_Angel: I'm from Florida.

@ogo79: I don't know what you're talking about — I don't have any toilet of yours. All the toilets I have are mine >:[

i will say that i'm not really a fan of the card-game mechanic, having to collect all the card pieces and not knowing whether you have to talk to someone or whether they'll just ask you to battle is pretty tedious IMO. however, i love the overall look of this game, and you guys are right on the money — it's very much like a 'slice of life' anime tale centered on this one child, it's very Japanese-y, and I definitely thought it had a Studio Ghibli sort of feel to it visually as well. i'm very curious to see how this story will wind up.

@Dizzard: some of the other episodes have taken longer than others for me because of all the running around you have to do. also, don't get hung up on completing the episodes in order, because it doesn't happen that way (at least not the way i've been playing, anyway! :3)

If Nintendo really 'listened', Earthbound would've been out years ago, Xenoblade would've been released in NA maybe a month after the EU at worst, and there'd be a new F-Zero game in everyone's hands like right now, lol. You may as well have posted this back when Smash Bros. hit the Wii VC years ago, it's as 'true' now as it would've been back then.

btw, what's the cool thing to be demanding for VC these days? now that earthbound's finally out, i'm not sure what to expect complaints about :3

Dude, that's obviously a refference to that one movie where Nicolas Cage dies.

You both fail. Beehives and bees falling out of trees in this game is obviously a reference to the 1991 coming-of-age film 'My Girl', where Macaulay Culkin dies of a bee sting and Anna Chlumsky has her first period. A true classic.

We have 12(!!!) forum games filling up the first two pages of the General Discussion section. I don't even know why people make them. It's not like they're any fun, or an exercise in creativity. It's just people saying the same stupid stuff over and over again. Forum games were invented to inflate post counts. They're spam threads with absolutely no discussion whatsoever. Yet they still thrive on a forum where people don't have visable post counts? That's just a waste of time that could be spent on literally anything else! Picking your nose would be better time spent! I just wish we could have them moved to their own section, since I'm sure half the forum would leave if they were removed for good (sure, most of those people wouldn't be a real loss, since they mostly don't do anything besides spam forum games anyways, but since Nintendo Life is obviously so desperate for hits, well...), but I dunno, it doesn't seem like something like that will happen anytime soon...

I'm getting the feeling it may be time for another break from NL if you're flipping out over forum games.

Some people enjoy them. Let them have their fun.
