I disagree. Without Magikarp, there would be no Gyarados.

i swear to god that was the exact same thing i said when this was brought up in chat (someone brought up Magikarp as one of the worst pokemon ever or something). right on.

lol, to fix it'd probably involve taking it apart and putting it back together again, so I'd just send it in. bummer, man -- how'd you wind up dropping it into water, anyway?

I can think of no quicker way to start arguments on the forums, Proto.

that said, i'm not really behind this as a 'friends' feature -- you tend to get the 'well why did so-and-so take me off their friends' list?????' BS when it's called 'friends', and especially when it comes to some of the more sensitive and/or younger users here, it'll get annoying fast. 'users i'm watching' would work just as well... i'm more interested in this in terms of something that allows me to keep track of what others have posted recently and in what threads. :3

Butterfly is so annoying... it's one of the attract mode demo songs for the first DDR. i remember when it hit the US and i was working right in front of an arcade -- all freakin' day we'd be hearing that song D:

the version in 3rd Mix (Upswing) is much better. it's faster, and the steps are a lot more fun. :3

that kind of feature has been in the works for over a year now, Monix2598. Ant's working on some site/forum upgrades at the moment, as mentioned back in the Have Your Say thread. the only thing we can do is ask for your continued patience.

In the meantime, if you have a blog/site you post reviews to or a YouTube account, you are more than welcome to put a link to it/them into your sig. :3

@ray62: or... i can not carry my cartridges in my pocket, and i can not let my little bro anywhere near them. problem solved :3

also, 'please don't doubt the 3DSWare going for cartridges'? Nintendo hasn't really made much DSiWare that went from 'Ware to retail (usually it's the other way around, isn't it?), so I do believe i will doubt the 3DSWare will do the same -- it'll probably stay digital, which is fine by me. most of it's just not meaty enough for a full retail release, lol :3

@LuWiiGi: that would only be a problem if NL had varying levels of privacy. NL is completely open to the public, however, so whoever wants to look up what you're doing would be able to do so without this suggested feature. It just makes things easier this way for people to keep track of whoever they want to keep track of, is all.

what I'm talking about is the little indicator telling everyone that you're currently online -- i'm just not a fan of people knowing exactly when I am and am not online is all, and I'd like to be able to opt out of that part of the feature. i'm cool with people seeing where i've been posting lately, though -- in fact, i suggested a similar feature in the Have Your Say thread a while back. :3

@dap594: there is the search bar up at the upper left-hand corner of NL that will pull up forum topics, but it's not the most reliable thing in the world because it also pulls up mainsite stuff. i usually find stuff via Google using 'site:nintendolife.com/forums (insert what i'm searching for here)'.

that said, you'll note that I didn't know that topic was actually about a sequel either -- another user was kind enough to point it out for us, so that we could keep all the discussion as together as possible (believe me, if merging threads were possible, we would be doing it a lot more often than just locking them). you'll also note that under normal circumstances, you are not in trouble for posting a duplicate thread on the forums -- we realize that the search function isn't all that great at the moment, so that's why we/i do my best to always find the original or current duplicate thread before locking the new ones.

Do you have another wiimote to try? Have you tried changing out the batteries in your current wiimote?

If nothing has worked, I'd try the candle trick next. Unplug the sensor bar from the wii, set a pair of burning candles about as far apart as your sensor bar is wide in front of your TV, and then try re-calibrating the sensor bar. if that doesn't work, call Nintendo's support hotline, because I'm out of ideas, hahaha. :3

@Waltz: and if they don't have a computer with internet access, an iphone, a blackberry, or a droid? If I want someone to read a book, I'd rather let them borrow it right then and there as opposed to having to wait a month until they can afford to have their cable/internet service turned back on. not to mention the fact that I don't want to get mugged for walking down the street with a Kindle or pestered by people interested in it because it's new to them; i'd rather be unobtrusive with a plain old book. I also don't want to be limited in only allowing five people to borrow my books -- i've got a lot of friends, and back at my old workplace even we'd all pass books around to one another, maybe twenty people in the same group sharing one or two books a piece between us all. it just wouldn't be feasible with what you're describing.

honestly, you're not going to convince me that digital is better in this case, lol. if it works, why fix it? :3
