lol, your game shops must be nowhere near your stores, then, Waltz... i can be in and out of a GameStop in five minutes with exactly what I wanted and on to the store i actually needed to go to (in the same plaza, no less), and that's only if the store I needed to go to (Wal-Mart or Target or whatev') didn't have that particular game in stock themselves. (I can also swing by the fast-food place next door to it on the way back to my truck, lol.) and perhaps better yet, I don't have to worry about my download being interrupted by crappy internets or my husband messing around with the network and not telling me, lol.

Marzipaz brings up a good point too -- games are getting larger and larger as the generations progress. until handhelds are able to accommodate large files on their own with ease (switching out SD cards or memory sticks? you may as well be using cartridges/discs, y'know) and internet connections are at the speeds required to more easily facilitate my downloading of large game files, I can't say that I'm too interested in games that would have been retail becoming download-only.

and i just love that new-game smell... the sound of crinkling shrink-wrap... the cool, smooth feel of a fresh, crisp manual in my hands. god bless retail games :3

plz to get back to us when you get your degree in psychology, Waltz. i'll probably be able to take your position more seriously then.

That said, I really don't see this discussion going anywhere from here. We're all going to have to agree to disagree on how to raise our kids and whether or not we should be forced to break the nonexistent law to do so in the manner we choose. :3

@WaltzElf: I think you're over-simplifying the issue -- Video games do not result in kids getting pregnant or killing their developing livers.

Either way, how long will this topic continue to chase its tail, I wonder. :/

@TokyoRed: lol, when the 3DS allows me to write and read word documents/.txt files on it straight out the box and when I can link it directly to other computers to transfer documents/files (whether via wired or wireless connection), i'll consider it a handheld computer. until then, it's just a game console. :3

Metroids are the only known predator of the X; however, since Samus destroyed all the Metroids on SR388 in a previous mission, the X were able to multiply unchecked. Seeing this as the key to curing her, doctors proposed using a Metroid cell from Samus' dead Baby to make an anti-X vaccine. Apparently, the Federation had managed to preserve a cell culture from the Baby that saved Samus while she was on Zebes a second time.

I mean we never forgot when our parents die or a friend, sibling or someone famous like MJ dies.

I do believe that is the most offensive thing I've seen you post on these forums yet. A celebrity is just a famous person, but a loved one is someone much more special than that, and what happened that day was far more important to the entire nation than the overdose-induced death of Michael Jackson. How dare you.

What about Call of Duty was it not FPS on the DS? I never played the one on 3DS just on the home consoles. I'm sure Nintendo will have Call of Duty a FPS on the 3DS, there's no way Nintendo would pass up FPS games on the 3DS.

tuna and salmon are my favorites; i can eat some fresh salmon or tuna sushi any day of the week. the rest, though, i can do without... i'd rather be eating tonkatsu :3

well gee whiz, that's a relief -- i haven't been able to get a good night's sleep for weeks wondering if JadeGirl approved of me liking sushi.

how long are you waiting for the game to load (during the black screen)? for some reason, on my own Wii, lately it's been taking a minute or two for games to load beyond the black screen... it's weird, but they always load eventually for me, at least.
