To be fair, since Nintendo confirmed it, there is a timeline. Done :P

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

The best part was his response. "Oh, is that what they are doing?"

AuthorRe: LL vs XL

@You_Silly_Human: from the looks of your topic, you're asking whether to get a Japanese 3DS LL or a EU/NA 3DS XL. That's why it may be misleading; it's the only reason i popped in to check it out, really. Please stop leaping to insults as your first response when questioned by another user.

that said, yes, you are correct. from what I understand, it's a double-large, or 'XL' size — they use the same 'LL' abbreviation to denote the next size up from Large for other things as well, like clothing or food items. if you wind up in Japan and need an extra-large size of something, they may not understand XL off the bat, but they'd most likely understand LL immediately.

If you have any other Japan-related questions, you may want to try asking in our Japan Discussion thread. Good luck to you!

@You_Silly_Human: I don't think he was insulting you — rather, the ire seems to have been directed at Gamestop/EB. They're the same company, but their websites and operating methods are different, thus why GS would have helpful images up on their site and EB wouldn't, lol. please try assuming good faith in your fellow users before calling them 'noobs' :3

i do agree with the 'don't dish it if you can't take it' sentiment. you get what you give, after all.

After all the death threats and hate mail over the years (harassing to release the game), I'd be a little grumpy, too.

it's one thing to be 'a little grumpy'. it's another to say horrible things about other people and/or products, then cry foul when your paying fanbase (most of which who wind up enjoying some of the things you've insulted) gets on your case about it. it's a situation tailor-made for the world's smallest violin. perhaps an entire 'world's smallest orchestra'.

How about instead of being nasty about it, you just post the link to the source you're citing? That way you don't get those pesky requests for a source article in the first place. Thanks in advance, I'd hate to have to ban you over it or anything. :3
