@ax: in my half of that quoted comment, i was referring to the fact that maya and pearl aren't in AJ -- where were they between T&T through the start of AJ, and all during AJ for that matter?

i hadn't been aware that they were actually in Investigations, though -- nice find. here's an image if anyone else missed them too :3

@Sneaker: true, but i liked AJ a lot because Phoenix wasn't an idiot the way he is portrayed in the PW games, that's kinda why i'd like to see what happened with him and Maya eventually -- sure, there's an age gap, but it's not an insurmountable one. also, hooray Ema Skye, and the bracelet thing/picking out twitches and tics was kinda cool too. Apollo could've been any random character, really, and i'd'a still liked the game. :3

what are tin hats for? blackddagon, in the real world companies have many considerations whether to proceed with lawsuits or not. for example, when you proceed with legal action, your patent may be challenged even though it was previously approved by the patent office. It's just speculations but thinking that's not infringement because Nintendo didn't sue is without any basis or reason. I've studied patent law. Nintendo doesn't risk here losing - they have a few years to sue even here if they decide so, of course considering other issues like PR.

if i were you, i wouldn't bother holding your breath on that.

also, tin-foil hats are a popular conspiracy joke because there are people who honest-to-god believe that they will ward off Big Brother's brainwashing/microwaves/the Evil Eye and all that, just as there are people who honest-to-god believe that Nintendo will attempt to bring a lawsuit against Sony for using a completely different technology in their own motion-sensing controller.

@mnementh: note that both NL and MM are run by the same people. in order for James to persuade the directors to 'ditch' Nintendo Life, he'd have to replace himself with a writer of his own caliber so as to not leave a gaping hole in his wake. since that's pretty much an impossibility, i think taking him at his word is the way to go.

second-guessing things just because 'nobody knows how you will feel in the future, not even you' is the quickest way i can think of to stop enjoying yourself and never get anything done, so why dwell on what may or may not happen waaaaaay down the line? :3

sounds pretty gimmicky to me, so i doubt i'd buy a Virtual Handheld game solely because it's in 3D. It'd have to be a game i would've wanted to buy without it anyway.

As much as I hate to letcha down, Wright is practically the only character who doesn't make ANY sort of cameo. Or Maya, but I kind of expected that since she wasn't in AJ either.

I miss my Maya. Need some more.

now that's something i'd like to see explored in the next AJ game (please, capcom, pleeeeease) -- where was Maya during all that, and Pearl for that matter? it could make for good times having the Feys show up again :3

@Waltz: i don't understand -- i thought you were trying to argue that it should be illegal for me to do those things I described -- you were saying in this reply that you believed that "the ratings system should be treated as law," and in this one here that "It [the ratings system in Australia] should be the same with the games industry - the problem is, it's not regulated enough." (note that the preceding statement was with regards to people being fined for allowing a minor to see an R18+ movie whether a parent was present or not.) has that changed?

bottom line: i want to be able to take my (eventual) kid out to see a movie in public, or to walk into a store and purchase an M-rated game with my kid right there with me without being given the third degree regarding who will be playing said game (like sometimes they do if you try to purchase alcohol and you've got a teenage kid with you). i want to be allowed to be out and about in public and seeing/purchasing said things with my child if I so choose, not having to hide behind closed doors at home. it is my decision as to when I see my child is mature enough to handle these things, and not the government's.

@Adam: i'm cool with the law prohibiting my (eventual) kid from attempting to run around behind my back and purchase an M-rated game, but me walking into a store and wanting to purchase an M-rated game for my kid, even after being warned by the clerk that the game may contain violence, sex, and/or drug usage, I don't want that to be against the law (which is what I think Waltz is attempting to argue, if i'm reading him correctly). it's the same as taking my kid to see an R-rated movie IMO (or the same kid attempting to purchase an R-rated movie behind my back); while I appreciate Big Government's concern, and i'd be happy if they wanted to card any unaccompanied minors, it's my call as to whether or not I think they can handle what's going on in it if i am right there with them, and I'll be the one to explain things if they have any questions afterward.

@shpydar: ah, my mistake then -- i thought the ratings were legally enforceable; we used to see security/police escorting kids out of the movie theater all the time back when i was a young mall-rat, lol, and they were always super-d-baggish about requiring ID if you looked the slightest bit underage. didn't understand why they'd cover their a**es like that if there wouldn't be a fine involved. the rest of my comment still stands, however. :3

And BTW, @ ummm, i think it was Waltz (too lazy to go back the couple pages, so i apologize if it was someone else), movie theatres are NOT fined if they let an underage viewer into an "R" rated movie. At least not in the US

"At least not in the US" is the operative phrase, here -- Waltz is in Australia, where 'R' rated movies are 18+ only. it'd be like attempting to escort your kid into an NC-17 or X-rated flick here in the states, a fine would definitely be laid down, lol.
