Personally I'm against the idea, but then it will hopefully reduce the amount of bickering over scores we get in some review comments (hopefully).

they won't be bickering with us though, Sean... they'll be bickering with each other. :3 but at least this way there'll be an 'official' outlet where people can get their thoughts out and actually make a contribution to the site. an average user score as well as a reviewer's score would also be something people could take into account, hopefully it'll deflect some of the 'ZOMG YOU GAVE THIS GAME A ___????? HOW DARE YOU ASLDJFALDJFADSF' backlash, hahaha.

@KS8: symbols and ranking are intimidating. anyone should be able to come in and start participating on the forums without fear of being talked over or outright ignored just because they haven't been here long enough -- and even people with older sign-up dates often spout random nonsense. rank is useless except for showing off and/or bragging. again, we all know who we are here, and if someone doesn't, all they have to do is keep their eyes open and watch for the common sense posts. :3

@gaminguy: great, give me even more work to do around here. :|

@KS8: but then it becomes a battle to see who can suck up the hardest. it's not really fair to play favorites with people like that IMO... NL is a place where anyone can come and participate, but this ranking system sounds too complicated. besides, anyone who's been here long enough knows who to listen to and who to ignore anyway, and if you haven't figured it out yet, lurk moar, y'know? visible symbols (except to separate staff from non-staff) aren't necessary.

and don't even get me started on post counts. i love the fact that NL doesn't have those. it's so irritating on other forums sometimes when people are just participating in long, annoying conversations consisting of nothing but one-word replies and such just because they're trying to get their post count up. :/

@almostnacho: to elaborate on your point in context with what i just said before, YouTube's HTML5 version only works for browsers that support the H.264 or WebM codecs, and Opera only does Ogg Theora for sure so far. makes you wonder if Ninty'll be pressing for more HTML5 video support for the 3DS or not (provided they're still even partnered with Opera, lol).

There was one particularly bad glitch that prevented me from playing the game as Weird Adam. In fact, that option wouldn't even show up on the menu.

How this got past QA I will never know.

Nah, it's there, but it's a well-hidden easter egg. In order to play as Adam: progress through the game in an ordinary fashion, but grumble continuously about the 3D platforming and lack of a clear flagpole.

i can't stop loling, it's so true D:

all this wrangling needs to stop. the ad was toned down, and it's apparently only going to be up for three days. your concerns have all been duly noted, I assure you, but for right now, this is the best that can be done.

Also, the 0.3 megapixel cameras? Come on Nintendo, you can do better than that!

this i agree with. with all they were talking about wanting the DSi to be a kind of companion accessory, something you'll carry with you all the time and bust out at any occasion to show off to your friends and have fun, the crappy camera really hindered that goal. i really wish they'd'a' bothered to add better cameras instead of just adding a third one to the mix :(

@proto: it's not like they really used or promoted that external microphone thing all that much, though, so i think taking that feature out is just another step in the DS's evolution. :3

perhaps it could have screens that shatter as soon as you tap them with the stylus. it could fall apart if you open it up flat. the 3D screen could screw up your eyes somethin' fierce. the sound could go haywire if you plug in headphones, damaging your hearing if you try to play with them on. 'could, could, could'... we'll never know anything about any problems for real until we've had a chance to handle a 3DS for ourselves.

guys, if we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: if you have a problem with an ad on NL, use the Contact Form to complain. under normal circumstances, we'd ask that you get a screenshot of the offending ad and forward that along as well, but in the case of this one (which i'm not terribly appreciative of either, seeing's to how i'm at work and now i'm about to get made fun of for 'surfing porn', grr), i doubt it's necessary. the admins aren't always surfing the forums, and the title of this thread isn't really all that descriptive. making absolute sure they see your complaint is the only way they'll be able to get things taken care of for us.

zelda II's an action-rpg. simon's quest is action-adventure-y, kinda platformer-y. shantae, super paper mario, and faxanadu are more straight-up platformers, i think.
