This does not change the fact that games today have "super guides", and an infinite amount of hints telling players what they can do. You call that gaming? And I certainly don't agree that it is for everybody. But, that's my opinion.

Are you being forced to use these things? Nope. If you're trying to blame your inability to keep from using them on their easy availability, that's allll on you, man — and it's a mistaken scapegoat considering how long kids have had the internet and forums to ask questions, Nintendo Power used to publish walkthroughs and between them and Prima guides, they had everything covered. If you needed help on the fly, there was Nintendo's old gaming question hotline, then later there were places like GameFAQs to host playthrough guides, and even before all that, us kids used to ask this older kid down the street sometimes if we needed help with games like Castlevania and stuff. If people needed help years ago, there were still ways to get it. Why should someone feel bad for playing and enjoying a game that features in-game help instead of looking for help in other places if they need it? Where do you get off telling someone who enjoys a game that features in-game tips or a guide that they shouldn't?

@JGMR: I'm pretty sure Nintendo owes its success to developing games back then, difficult or not. telling people that they 'should' or 'should not' be playing games is ridiculous. Gaming has always been for everyone, up to and including the lowest common demoninator you apparently choose to scorn with that old tired 'hardcore vs. casual' crap parroted by people with nothing better to do than label things. :/

Play what you like and let others do the same; no one's forcing you to play things you don't want to play for whatever reason. If you stop putting your faith in labels, you'll probably have a lot more fun :3

You can indeed register 3DS games and link your 3DS to your Club Nintendo account if that's what you're asking...? If you're unable to see the Club Nintendo site via your 3DS, i'm afraid you'll need to get in touch with their customer service to have the problem resolved. If you'd like to discuss the rewards program in general, we've got a thread going for that here. Enjoy! :3

@AlThor: It does have a very accessible 'easy' mode for inexperienced players or people who maybe don't enjoy SRPGs as much as the next guy. you will still need to be a bit tactical with your move choices and such, but if i could get through it, anyone can — and i enjoyed the hell out of FE:A :3

Hey guys, are these games freeware (and i mean straight from the creator, not that you can find a random website offering it for download)? If not, please don't share links to download sites or anything of that nature. Thanks in advance!

so does this play like a JRPG, SRPG, or dungeon crawler? I've been trying to read up on this game (that $30 eShop credit is quite tempting), but no one seems to have come out and said anything for sure — the Destructoid review mentioned being able to freely explore areas, but i'd like corroboration before making the decision to put down my money on it. has anyone read anything that can flat-out confirm which type of RPG this falls into?

@Morphtorok: they kinda have to do that, though — it's not like they can switch up who or what the donations were for. if I give a third party a donation they're promising me will go toward a certain charity and they choose to renege on that agreement by using the money in some other-than-stated manner, i can take legal action to reclaim my donated funds. they have two choices in this situation, either refund the people who donated or continue to donate the money to the stated charity — and that's if they had enough fine print to cover their butts adequately now that they don't have lawful permission to fulfill the promised prize for the winning party.
