@everyone: thanks, guys, i appreciate it. sorry, i just didn't know where else to let it out.
@GustavoSF: don't worry about it, bro — i know all too well how awkward it is to have someone mention that a friend or family member has died and there's nothing you can really think of to say, and i'm sorry to have put you into that situation. just the fact that you spared a thought is enough.

@MinecraftforLen: The important thing is to not trade in your system! Send it in for a repair, and even if the system is damaged and unusable Nintendo can re-link your downloaded applications and games. No promises as to whether your save files will survive, but as long as you let Nintendo handle the problem, they can get you back your games, at least.

For what it's worth, i do hope they manage to save your save-files, i know losing all your hard work in AC:NL has to be a horrible prospect for you

as off-topic as they seem, lz and LJM do kinda bring up a good point — if you continually beat the hell out of your opponents, they may decide that it's no fun playing against you. i know i tend to go easy on people when i think they're having a hard time, but don't be surprised when they come outta nowhere and whoop you while your guard is down, lol. :3

@CorpseTreader, you gave that 3DS to your friend, and thus he has ownership of your prior 3DS eShop account and all your Ambassador games. any games transferred to that SD card of yours are worthless, they won't copy over to a new 3DS on their own. Unless you can get your friend to agree to a proper System Transfer once you get your new 3DS XL, you've lost those games — and if he does agree to a System Transfer, any games he's purchased since you gave the 3DS to him will be transferred to your new 3DS XL, so I hope you plan to reimburse him if he's nice enough to go through with it for you.

i just found out today (after having skipped job#2 these past couple days due to being sick as hell) that a friend of mine died like yesterday or the night before-ish. he apparently got into some sort of car accident, we haven't heard all the details as of yet. i'd just seen him this past weekend or so, i don't think i said much to him because i was supposed to see him again later this week. idk what i would've said if i'd known i wouldn't be seeing him alive again, but i'm still really pissed off at the world at the moment.

i don't think the cases are as easy if you already know who did it because you can't skip around. When you already know who did it, you outside the game already know which pieces of evidence are gonna be more important than others, but the characters inside the game don't have the ability to make those leaps of logic. Even replaying the game for the story, sometimes you forget which pieces of evidence you've already presented or which statements you've pressed on because you have an idea of how it's all supposed to play out and you're trying to get it to go the way you know it will, but the judge refuses to see your reasoning until the correct sequence of presented evidence and pressed statements have played out during testimony. it can also be frustrating during the investigation process, when you know a certain person or place will give you a piece of evidence you need, and yet you haven't triggered the correct sequence of questions and responses yet to unlock it, or it may not actually be available until later on during the case. when it comes to the AA series, especially in the realm of the first playthrough, i wouldn't want to be spoiled regarding what's to come.

Is he the one initiating these versus games, or are you? it doesn't sound like he's very interested in versus play from what you're saying...

if he is the one initiating versus games and he keeps getting sidetracked, perhaps you could try helping him in his quest to collect all the pikmin if that's what he's wanting to do? perhaps he's a perfectionist at heart :3

I personally don't get why people get so uptight about claiming that "there's no timeline". For one thing, Nintendo themselves confirmed it. Also, who cares if people discuss the timeline? It just gives Zelda fans something to talk about. IMO, it makes the series feel more connected to me.

I can say the same thing with people claiming that there is a timeline. That was my whole point. Every time I say there isn't people start jumping down my throat acting like I am wrong.

... that's because you are wrong in this case — you can't say there isn't one when Nintendo has clearly put forth that they do consider the one in Hyrule Historia to be canon. you can say you don't think the 'official' timeline is correct or that you don't believe in it altogether, but you can't say that one doesn't exist at all.

I agree I am done. You guys aren't going to convince me there is one just like I am not going to convince you there isn't.

Well that's just this timeline. I just started work on a graphic that shows the events that happen if you agree that there is a Zelda timeline. Spoiler Alert: Gunpei Yokoi rises from the dead.

best. timeline. evar.

PONR, you should be at 80 minimum, but I didn't beat the game until i think i hit 85 or 86 iirc. i also had to do a lot of switching up the characters in my party, available gems/armor, available moves, and i had to be absolutely on my other doods in order to help them out during battle with B presses.

it depends on the product. if a CEO, an artist, a game author, a book writer, anyone who is vocal about opinions with which i disagree has a product i may have been interested in, i am within my rights to seek alternatives to fit my needs. someone may have the most amazing thing out there, but if their CEO, author, or whatever head honcho is detestable to me for whatever reason i'm sure i'll be fine going the rest of my life without their product if it's at all feasible.

@anthony12: Two things:

(a) When you post a thread here at Nintendo Life, it becomes the property of the community at large. It's not a thing for you to 'own', it's a place for users to have a discussion, and if the thread you've created is somehow against our Community Rules or if you make it do things that are against our Community Rules, it may wind up subject to locking. I would advise you to not take things personally if they don't pan out the way you'd like in a thread you create.

(b) your little 'bumps' are against our Community Rules (the one regarding posting constructively as opposed to wasting our server space). thread-bumps do annoy our users, as you've been advised, and they waste space in a thread. If you genuinely have something to add after a day or two has passed, great, but posting a nonsense 'don't let the thread die!' or the other comments along those lines every few hours as you panic is not kosher. I had thought you would've gotten the hint after I'd deleted a few, but I suppose not.

please, If no one has anything to add to a thread you've posted in (any thread, not just one you've created) and you were the last to post, give it a few days before adding something else. If still no one has anything to add, perhaps it's time to join an active conversation.

now, as you were, people :3
