If a certain unreleased game is only one of the reasons you want a certain system and there are other games already out for it that interest you, fine, but if an unreleased game is the prime reason for purchasing a system and its cancellation (or turning out to be crap) would be devastating to you, know that you are taking a risk with your impatience.

i'm sure we'll all take your advice to heart.

@BlueFlameBat: I do not hate you, i simply moderate the forums as necessary. you are not the first person whose comments i have had to modify/threads i've had to lock, nor will you be the last. sorry you seem to think i hate you. if ever you feel you have been treated unfairly by myself or any other moderator or admin personally, please feel free to contact the head honchos via the contact form instead of beating around the bush in threads on the forums.

if you want to ask me a question in person, there's always chat. i'm usually in off and on during the evenings right after i get home from work (8:30-ish Monday through Thursday, 10:30-ish Fridays and Saturdays). in fact, i'm in right now.

that said, no, i'm not from Texas. never been to Texas before, in fact.

Halo, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy and Soul Calibur seam to the most popular franchises for girl gamers :p

...your right. :P

And reason being, is because they think it makes 'them' look cool. God forbid a hot looking gamerZ chick being seen playing Mario :p They always post pictures of themselves with their sticking out playing Halo or some other SCFI gun infested Shooter. It's sad...Because that turns me off even more. I say get down with Mario, Zelda and better yet 'Metroid' because the main character is a girl, so er...they can relate. After all Samus is the hottest thing since sliced naked bread, too bad these clueless hot gamer girls will never know because she's stuck in a suit lol

And it's a shame, because for the most part the girls that get crazy over Mario are for the most part fugly, or at least the ones I've seen. But at least they have fantastic taste, and an open mind....Besides, it's either that or a bunch of hot clueless bimbo's button mashing away at Soul Calibur thinking they're the shniz. Then again most attractive woman despise videogames and act like they're a waste of time....But they're for the most part close minded to the extreme. There are also chicks who actually like videogames, but SIMPLE videogames....Perfect example are those terrible never ending party games on the Wii, oh the fun I say!

those are some interesting generalizations. allow me to address them in order:

(a) just because the only girls you've seen posting images of themselves on the internet playing Halo are all hot and showing off their bodies does not mean there are not other girls waiting in the wings to slaughter their characters in-game. it just means they're the few female Halo players seeking the attention they know it will get them from males, just like any other hot chick showing some skin in a picture posted to the internet.

(b) why assume females can only relate to female characters? i am not a Metroid fan, and probably never will be, and it irritates the heck out of me to see so many people saying 'durr, Samus is female, so girls should play Metroid because they're a girl too'. the gender of the main character holds no power over whether or not I as a person will like a game, and I bet i'm not the only female gamer who feels that way.

(c) there are hot girls who like Mario, and there are not-so-hot ones who button-mash when it comes to things like Soul Calibur. there are girls of all shapes an sizes who enjoy all kinds of video games, just as sure as there are males of all shapes and sizes who enjoy the same games, up to and including those 'simple' games you speak of. also, considering i doubt you personally know 'most' of the 'attractive' women in the world, i think i'm'a take your statement that each and every one of those 'most' women turn their noses up at video games with a grain of salt.

this thread is really starting to give me a headache :|

I Would of liked to see a actor that looked a little more boyish, because I remember megaman looking like a little boy without his armor suit, but the effort the actor puts to his personality is spot on, especially the Innocence.

i thought Adam was referring to those two protrusions at either side of Mega Man's head when he said that, lol receding hairlines

Granted, but instead of swashbuckling IRL, wearing eyeliner and eighteenth-century duds, and being awesome in general, you become the very kind of pirate you personally hate the most -- the kind that steals video games on the internets. once you realize this, you're so horrified that you spontaneously combust.

i wish everyone else was as detailed with their corrupted wish-granting as I am.

too bad, it seems the moderating staff has no problem with dark corruptions, and in fact they decide to follow you around the entire site editing dark, dreary things into your every post for the rest of your duration here at Nintendo Life.
