@JadeGirl: whether you want to keep believing that way is your own business, and we don't care how protective your parents are and whether or not you're allowed to date, but the belief that certain things are or should only be for certain genders is sexist. overcompensating for how you feel you behaved when you were younger or not, the idea that girls should only play non-violent games or games someone else deems 'suitable' is bull. we have every right to play any game a male can play, gender be damned.

Plus girls are suppose to play games that are suitable for females not violent games.

and who decides what is 'suitable for females' and 'not violent'? i'm sorry, but this is the biggest load of BS i've heard today.

God did not mean for girls to be violent but to be gentle.

if God didn't mean for girls to be violent, he would never have created PMS, just fyi. >:3

in short, i would welcome an MGS bundle... hell to the yes i would :3

hey now, there's plenty of us chicks out here who would consider MGS bundled in with a black 3DS to be pretty freakin' awesome. Just because you're a girl doesn't mean you wouldn't like it. Have you even given the series a try? Or are you just dismissing it based on gender stereotypes? :|

not really interested in polls myself; they're just more useless fluff IMO, and i never use them when i'm on other sites. as for user ratings, i know user reviews have been in the works for over a year now; maybe there would be a score functionality along with that once it finally hits. :3

@Relevant Latty: to be fair, you can find a lot of good stuff on eBay for far cheaper than you can on Amazon, and if you're smart about things (ask the seller questions, look closely at images, don't buy from sellers with low ratings, avoid Hong Kong users like the plague, use PayPal for their buyer protection, etc. and so forth), you'll be all right.

And this is why there can be no consensus on this topic. All sites are catering to slightly different audiences. I have a Wii and a DS, and I'm not in the market for another system. NLife is great because it compares games within the context of other Nintendo games, so I can best choose what to play. I don't care how they stack up next to PS360 games. On the other hand, if I had a PS3 or Xbox too, I wouldn't care how good a game was compared only to other Nintendo games. I would be interested in what the best games amongst all three consoles were, so I could spend my gaming budget wisely. In that case, I'd probably spend a lot more time at IGN or Gamespot which use similar metrics to review games by all 3 systems. Different strokes for different folks.

this. if i cared about other systems, i might give more weight to what IGN or GameSpot has to say about Wii/DS games, but many times they put the games I'm interested up against Xbox/PS3 games, which i'm just not interested in. one person's 'most accurate' is another person's 'wtf are you talking about', lol. there can be no one set way to review things "accurately", because too many people are looking for too many different things out of a review.

9-7 (NSMBWii)

was that the level where you had to be tiny Mario to get one of the stars (had to go down this little pipe with enemies jumping all over the place through the rest of the level)? if so, effing signed... that one took me forever D:

That was the jungle level covered with Nibbler Plants incased in ice. There were Venus Fire Traps and Fire Bros. that would melt the ice, unleashing the annoying power of the Nibblers. Also, there were Goombas that were covered in spiky plants that were irritating too, almost resembling a certain enemy from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. The level didn't require a Mini Mushroom for 100% completion, but it was hard as heck!

hahaha wait, i was having a bad eye morning and totally missed the 'Wii' and '9' parts of that. i thought we were talking about NSMB and what i think was 8-8 (now that i look at an FAQ, anyway). it took me forever to get all the star coins in that level, stupid mini mario D:

"Being good for a Wii game" doesn't really justify giving it the same "score" as a good game on another console.

in terms of those of us who may only own one current-gen console, though, and who have no plans or financial ability to purchase another, I know I don't want to hear how much better a game is on (insert other console here), because I don't give a rat's behind. it's not necessary for me to know how it stacks up to every other game for every current-gen console on the face of the planet. i just need to know how it stacks up to the current library of games for the console I own.

at this point, once the seller has it back you'll probably get your refund. I'd get delivery confirmation on it or something just in case they try to say they never received it from you.

@lilboyblue:
(a) I have indeed purchased many things off Amazon, and one of my two jobs is retail, so yes, I do believe I have heard of both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Also, Christmas is that one holiday we get all kinds of presents, right? or is it the one where the bunny rabbit craps chocolate eggs for everyone? I always get those two mixed up. :(
(b) that's nice.

anyway, what I had been referring to in my original comment was the fact that it took years before Twilight Princess dropped below $40 at retail, even used... first-party IP games tend to stay at their original prices for far longer than third-party ones. the thought of it going on sale so quickly had honestly not crossed my mind, and i honestly doubt the game itself will go on sale, though you may wind up with extra coupons/percents off/whatev' from Amazon, so who knows what'll go down in November. I also had no way of knowing how much store credit/gift card(s)/birthday money/etc. you had at your disposal. I had only been thinking of full retail price.

idk, i usually hang around Metacritic for a reason -- i prefer having lots of opinions to go by instead of just one or two. i will say that most of Nintendo Life's reviews have been pretty spot-on IMO, except maybe one or two I mildly disagreed with and one in particular that still pisses me off to all hell because it led me to purchase the one game i absolutely can. not. stand.
