why is that voice so hilarious? lol

next time, though, Gabe, if you're really trying to 'teach', add some text. most of it is easy enough to figure out (aspiradora, tenedor, bebida, pluma, etc.), but the first and last one were confusing -- the first because i can't tell what you're waving on the screen, and the last because it was kinda mumbled, lol.

thanks for that, terra. i'd be wondering how it'd handle games made for the DS/i that leave space for the gap between the screens; would it display those games with a black bar in between because the screens are so much closer together?

@StarBoy: nostalgia is a pretty lame reason to recommend an RPG to someone else if it's all you've got going for it, mainly because your fond memories playing it as a kid won't be around for that person when they go to try it out. as for it being the first Mario RPG also being a lame reason, i'd disagree -- it's like suggesting any other 'first' game in a series; if you've played all the rest (or plan to), you may as well give the one that started it all a go, though if you're only going to play one Mario-based RPG in your entire life even I'd suggest Paper Mario instead. Digiki may have put it bluntly, but if you step back and try to look at it from the point of view of someone who genuinely did not enjoy the game, he hasn't insulted anyone.

It's not that we have an official policy against religion threads, it's that it's been done before and winds up degenerating into arguments where no one wants to listen to what the other is saying, people jump in wanting to 'witness' to those who aren't interested, and still others attempt to argue points of religious law to the death, all of which we can do without. Sorry, CheifThunder, but the Nintendo Life forums aren't the place for this kind of discussion. :3

i just got my DSi back today. they did indeed replace it (as they couldn't reproduce the issue at the repair center; naturally when it was out of my hands it worked just fine, lol), but apparently since it was still in working order they were able to transfer everything over to the new system. when i turned it on, all my settings were in place and my games were still there, all in the same order i had them in when i sent it off, and though i couldn't immediately copy over things from the SD card, after re-downloading a couple games i was then able to save over them with my SD card information, thus giving me back my game save info. hooray, Nintendo! :3

they also returned the skin pieces and screen protectors from my old DSi in this bag marked 'unlicensed', lol, with a warning about using unlicensed stuff with my DSi. hahaha, it totally freaked me the hell out when i saw that, because i thought it was saying they hadn't been able to do anything with my DSi because of it, but then i read through the repair forms and saw that wasn't the case at all D:

@Bass X0: Apollo Justice was honestly a great game IMO. The first case is crap, but the second and third are both great, and the fourth was totally mindblowing (and explained all the stuff that never made sense in the first case). Give it a try before you decide you don't want to play it. :3

In terms of 'which provides a truly epic RPG experience', definitely FFIV. However, note that I've played SMRPG through probably upwards of fifteen times over the years, whereas i've played FFIV exactly twice -- once as a part of FFChronicles, the other being the DS remake. It's just not often that i'm interested enough to settle down with such a long game that takes itself so deadly serious. SMRPG is the kind of good, Mario-related fun that i crave, with just enough RPG elements and story to keep me satisfied; FFIV, though it is excellent, is too depressing for a casual playthrough IMO.

actually, come to think of it, i think i'd love SMRPG no matter what characters were in it. Sure, the fact that it's got Mario-series characters in it is a plus, but so much of the story has absolutely nothing to do with the main Mario series as we know it that it may as well have just had other random protagonists and an entirely different setting, and i bet i'd still love it to bits.

If i had a novelized version of FFIV, i'd read the hell out of it, but if i have to slog through the entire game every time, scraping by at the skin of my teeth, no thanks. Once (or twice) was enough.
