oh. actually you're right and i was wrong. Sculptured Software developed the games and LucasArts only published them in Europe originally. So they were licensed games back then. Its more like Nintendo being able to freely publish the DKC games because they own the DK license despite Rare developing the games for them. I should imagine the owner of a license has an easier time getting a game featuring one of their own franchises that was developed by another company than a games company who developed a game has aquiring the license again from the owners of the franchise.

All those Star Wars games produced throughout the years; shouldn't be a problem if LucasArts wanted to publish them for VC.

it's one thing if it's a first-party IP, though (like the aforementioned DKC series), and another if it's a third-party one, no matter who did the developing/publishing, lol. i guess LucasArts really wanted to bring the SSW series to VC -- didn't it coincide with something Clone Wars related anyway? i'm wanting to say that movie came out around the same time, but i was soooo not interested in it other than to make some Miis for the contests on the Check Mii Out channel :3

if it's just scratches, that'll be considered normal wear and tear. as a repair for aesthetic reasons, I'd expect them to charge you the full repair price for replacing your screen because it's scratched up. as long as you can still see what's on the screen and play your games, though, why worry? Just get a screen protector and put it on now to halt any further damage :3

@R-L-A-George: no offense, but screenshots or it didn't happen. i'm having a hard time finding images or video of Nickelodeon's Doug credits (except for a very nice bit from the very end of them showing the copyrights), so i'm guessing you're just a bit mixed up on which credits came from which incarnation of the series (Doug vs. Disney's Doug). :3

how comfortable are you just jumping into any game at random and not totally sucking at it (e.g. actually making decent progress off the bat instead of dying every five seconds)? i'd call that an 'advanced gamer'.

They brought it upon themselves with their hype.

indeed, and then not owning up to it when it came out that they were pretending to be regular users just to hype their games. don't forget the comment versus Gaijin Games as well. i know Bernd attempted to explain things afterthefact, but the damage was done -- you don't attempt to make yourself look good at the expense of another.
