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.

@Kaiser: you have a lot of unused space, though; there's plenty of room for the words/word bubbles to be proportionally larger. I wouldn't make the font size any smaller than that used in the first panel with the lizard guy if I were you. the proportions in that panel aren't bad... in fact, it's the most readable panel out of the lot with the lack of background and relatively clearer focus on the two characters involved.

Also, I guess you missed the hype part of the title, please keep any negative comments to yourself until you actually play it (and when/if you do, make them constructive and make your own points, don't let other people speak for you)...

you may as well ask people to keep the positive comments to themselves as well until they actually play it. hype can be both negative and positive. also note that this is a 'hype/discussion' thread. he is discussing why he canceled his preorder.
are you people seriously arguing over the score before it's even been released? wtf

also, good luck finding the game at or below $40 within the first year, though, lilboyblue :3

lol, i thought that was a haunted carrot in the last panel until i finally read the descriptions. the underlying art is not bad, but with the sketchy style it's hard to see exactly what's going on at first glance. The fonts are also far too small... you want both the art and the words to be completely readable the first time someone looks at it, because there's a good chance they'll only look at it once and then dismiss it entirely if they can't make heads or tails of it on their own.

This is true but at the same time I have heard it is painstaking process to go through.

it's still possible, which is what the OP was asking in the first place.

PunnyGuy is mistaken -- if your Wii breaks or is stolen, Nintendo does have ways to either repair the broken Wii or link your old Shop account to your new replacement (or whatever replacement they give you if your Wii is unfixable and it's still under warranty or whatev'). Your save files will probably be lost if you hadn't backed them up, though.

looks like a load of crap to me, dude -- note that it says "$1,000 Nintendo Gift Card"; Nintendo only does Points on cards iirc, and certainly not in denominations of $1,000. next time it pops up, take a screencap and show it to the admins. that's the only way they can do anything about that kind of thing. :3
