@mnementh: why would Nintendo not want to stop a competitor from selling a similar product? especially since, if it really is such a blatant infringement on their own technology and patents, by doing nothing they risk losing all right to similar prosecution against other infringing companies.

Dunno, but on Dsi you can listen to audiobooks and music by converting the files to aac on iTunes, then transporting them to an SD card.

it can only hold 30 seconds, fail.

No need to be rude, especially when you're wrong -- the audiobooks would be MP3 files on your computer, which would be there converted to aac format (thus the 'iTunes' part of labrat7's reply), and then you'd put them on an SD card. pop the SD card into your DSi and you're good to go -- you can hold plenty of audiobooks on a large SD card, i'd wager.

Umm... Am I the only person who really liked the first AAI?

yes.

... but no, seriously... wtf Capcom, why can't we have Apollo Justice 2 instead? did Investigations really sell well enough to warrant a sequel? unless it's got an amazing plot and some bomb new characters (sweet christ, how many jobs have Oldbag and Butz had???), i can't see myself purchasing this game.

in fact, I can say for absolute certainty that this is going to be the first AA game since the first that I will not be pre-ordering, and good luck to whomever's gonna take on that review. :|

@Adam: the warning was added by Prosody because people kept complaining about/reporting spoilers in that thread too, and we are tired of having to babysit it because people keep flipping the eff out about it. bottom line is that if you're looking in a Metroid: Other M thread at this point in time, someone's bound to slip someplace. Avoid the threads altogether if you don't want to accidentally be spoiled, y'know? :/

This is one of those things.
I wouldn't want my kid playing through the "No Russian" level of Modern Warfare 2, but then again, I played endless amounts of Mortal Kombat, the original GTA, Goldeneye, and any other violent games I could get my hands on as a kid. I think the important thing is to NOT PUT THE VIOLENT GAMES ON A PEDESTAL. Telling you're kids, "you can't play those games because you're not old enough" is just ensuring that they'll find a way to play them.

So we should also do away with the age of consent and age limits for driving, drinking and smoking, because that's putting all those things on a pedestal?

I read that as 'don't just tell them 'you can't because you're not old enough, give them reasonable-sounding reasons' -- like 'sorry honey, but you're just not big enough to reach the pedals and the steering wheel at the same time', y'know? or 'but, sweetheart, you don't want to pickle your liver or turn your lungs black, do you?', lol.

sorry waltz... i do agree with most of your argument, but if anecdotal evidence can't be proof that the rating system is 'wrong', then it also can't be proof that it's 'right'. :3

Real answer: 20 and still waiting. Haha oh god I'm a loser. goes to put head in oven

sorry to single you out, dude, but this exemplifies the negative stigma associated with growing to adulthood and still never having started making any serious forays into the world of non-familial love. unfortunately, there's so much pressure today for elementary-school-aged children, even, on TV, in books, and in other media, to start kissing, dating, and doing other things... a good portion of our userbase is very young, and the last thing we want is to add to that kind of encouragement.

long story short, if you've already had your first kiss, great, and if you're still waiting, great. your first kiss will happen when it happens; it's not something you want to rush into. :3
also, us girls totally have cooties... make sure you get your shots before trying anything >:3
