i don't care about achievements. just give me games.

edit: actually, i take that back -- depending on the game in question and how it's set up, online leaderboards would potentially have me playing for far longer than plain old achievements would. make it happen, Nintendo.

ah, i think i get it -- you're probably confusing industry opinions with what the general public thought, lol. if animators think Flushed Away was amazing, 's whatev', but as a layman i thought it was pretty lame lol. same for Shark Tale, sry2say. Dreamworks ain't got nothin' on Disney or Pixar in terms of a vividly compelling movie that I will want to watch again and again.

Forgive me, NintendoPurist -- i'm sure it's a lovely fanplay for viewers of this particular TV show -- but i'm not quite sure how a grown man making jokes about (potentially?) deflowering a little girl is anywhere remotely acceptable here at NL. You may wish to post something like this over at FanFiction.net if you'd like some honest feedback regarding your writing style, or if you're not quite up for that yet, post it to your blog and link back to your blog in your signature so that interested users may continue reading.

@BGR: buckle down with flypaper and bug spray, then, because you won't be seeing any carnivorous plants 'til at least spring. how are we going to have better luck googling what you (hopefully) already have? lol :3

@BellGoRiiing: you refuse to entertain the idea of ordering off the internet, they're out of season at the big-box stores, and you live nowhere near a major grower of carnivorous plants. what do you want us to do, magically poof them into your home with the power of our minds or something? lol...

Sorry, there's no way this will happen. Nintendo's focused on the 3DS now, so if anything like this comes out, it'll be for that system.

also, Blueflame has nothing to do with BlueFlameBat. sorry to disappoint, HM. :3

@Popyman: i'm trying to figure out how Flushed Away and HtTyD were 'masterpieces', lol. also, Disney had their house built long before Monsters Inc (which was Pixar anyway) and Bridge to Terabithia (which they just distributed) came out. :/

well, it's getting on toward fall and winter... flytraps need to go dormant in winter anyway or else they'll die. why not just get some flypaper for now and try again next spring for the plants? :3

have you tried wal-mart, lowes, home depot, any kind of big-box store with a garden center? sometimes they have venus fly traps and other bug-eating plants as novelties.

'lower down [my] hardware'? i can see it draining battery faster, but not so much with wearing out my 3DS, if that's what you were trying to say.

Oh wow, nice. Yeah, it shows later in the video the lady pressing the Home button and the main menu appearing. That's a great move by Nintendo!

It opens up a lot of possibilities if there's a complete interface available when you press the Home button, rather than having just the overlay.

i know, right? i'm wondering if we can have a game in progress in the background (like it thinks it's in sleep mode) while an app is running in the foreground. there's a lot of times where i'll be playing a game, get tired in the middle of a fight or some other point where i can't save, and then have to just shut it off so that i can use the Mario Clock as an alarm clock (like if my phone isn't around and it'd be a pain in the rear to get it, lol). i would love a feature where i can exit out of my game in progress to the Home menu, open the Mario Clock (or whatever other alarm-clock app i want to use) and then be able to resume my game from where i was later on.

Start small and work your way up, Werble. Since you say you have problems both writing and drawing, this project may not be for you, but maybe try writing a very short story and then illustrating it? get a feel for the pace you'll need to take image-wise first, and then try tackling a longer, more involved story if you're still interested.
