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.

@Tasuki: if you're asking about the PS3/360 version(s), ask in this thread. If you're asking about the Wii version, post in the Wii thread. you're also more than welcome to use the actual recommendations threads, i'm sure you already know where those are.

@The Fox: indeed, it's not hard to get a receipt or anything, or to require that your buyers purchase a level of shipping that involves a tracking number. Sellers gotta look out for themselves or they'll get burned.

@WaveBoy: idk what is or isn't taxed in Canada, but committing tax fraud by not properly defining your wares isn't really a promising way to start off your selling career, lol.

'verified' just means you've given them your bank information. a lot of people who don't sell things online hesitate to do so because then PayPal has direct access to your checking account as well as any credit card(s) linked to the account; it's like having all your eggs in one basket should (god forbid) someone manage to get a hold of your login info.

is it a tangible thing you're selling (e.g., can you throw it under your bed and forget about it)? then it's a 'good'.
is whatever you're selling intangible (e.g. it has no physical form for you to lose behind a couch or something)? then it's a 'service'.

that question is for tax purposes, most likely, since services (usually?) aren't taxed (here in the US at least).

@NP: that word doesn't carry the same connotations here in the US as it does overseas. it'll see a name change before it hits EU/AUS, i'm sure. they've changed the names of games, movies, and all kinds of crap for lesser reasons before.

Okami is a wannabe Zelda, what's your point?

the point is that Okami was fun, fresh, and original, while TP was crap. TP wishes it was as awesome as Okami was.

How could you not ask your mother if that was actually her story?
You didn't even have to ask her in real person, you could have just asked her on Facebook.
HOW HARD CAN IT BE?

Okami, if you go to collect everything in the game, is a 40-60 hour game easy. also, the controls (aside from some Celestial Brush weirdness at times) were just fine IMO. try it before writing it off like that, WaveBoy.

It's actually quite good. It's good if Sony and Microsoft make money too.

indeed, and if there's anything Nintendo can learn from Move or Kinect and apply them to the Wii2, so much the better for the rest of us. competition in the marketplace means good things for us as consumers.

Nintendo's gonna get theirs come tax season. i'm not saying they don't care about this holiday, but i do think they're more focused on February/March than they are December at the moment, and first-party staples like KEY, NSMBW, and DKCR will carry them through the next few months.
