Chill, Blink -- this isn't a flame war so much as it's been a discussion, and it's gotten a bit heated at times, but nothing too serious (yet). I've had my eye on it for a while now, don't worry. :3

Also, yes, this is Nintendo Life, but we can discuss things other than Nintendo here, and not everyone who likes Nintendo is going to like everything Nintendo comes up with. This is of those times. Again, it's cool, and I'm already on it, so relax, please. :3

If what you say is true, YoshiSage, and he does choose to return, I do hope he understands that topics regarding sensitive issues or issues known to spawn arguments/flamewars will continue to be locked and/or deleted, including further religion-based discussions. We do what we do for a reason, and if someone doesn't like it, that's too bad.

sure they can, they'll just have to illustrate the 3D in the commercials, and then maybe invite people down to their local (blah-blah-blah) stores to try them out.

it'd probably be the closest the public could get to a 3ds aside from an in-store kiosk, but Nintendo really pushed the 'no-glasses' thing vs. Sony... i don't think they'd want to have to use glasses in order to advertise the system.

whatever they decide to do, advertising is going to be tricky for them.

@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.

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.
