Yeah, I just don't have a free plug where my desk is. I need another power strip.

My battery dies on my 3DS. I'll have to charge it again before I open my gates.

They should be doing this for Monster Hunter and Majora's Mask. It sounds like a lot of people will be jumping on getting one or both of these at launch. Hopefully this is the beginning of a rolling trend for Nintendo. I don't typically buy digital or day-one, but I am happy it is an option for those who do.

So Leif is by my house wanting to make a game out of weeding. Did you need anything from in this activity? How is your weeding badge coming along? I apparently have 129 weeds in my town.

I am opening my gate while I do homework.

So make it a more general "Help" forum? That could work.

Also, meat isn't the main culprit of dick issues, grains are. I highly suggest watching the movie Fat Head and then ask yourself how a guy was able to eat fast food for a month - including meat - and still lose weight, feel great, and end up with better blood readings than he did before he started his experiment. Why did a Cardiologist write two books condemning wheat and grains ("Wheat Belly" and "Wheat Belly Total Health", by Dr William Davis)? Be careful what studies you read because there is a lot of error and assumption that can go into them.

How is it that, despite fat consumption in America being the lowest it has been in decades, obesity and chronic health issues are on the rise? What is one of the number one food items we consume? Grains. Coincidence? Perhaps, but why are the majority of our grandparents and great grandparents pictures showing them skinny despite them eating a higher percentage of fat? Obesity was less of an issue. Now, we are more sedentary than we have ever been and the seeds of grasses -something man was never able to properly eat- are our primary food source.

How did we live before the agricultural revolution? Before we became farmers? Wouldn't our species had died out if everyone started having dick issues in their 20s and 30s? And yes, the age is getting younger, despite the fact fat consumption is at its lowest.

Lastly, how did a chubby punk like me end up losing 50 pounds in a year without ever exercising and while eating all of the meat, eggs, and veggies I wanted?

Note: processed meats can be a health issue. Good quality meat from beef, poultry, fish, pork and other sources are what I refer to above. Notice a number of studies do not distinguish between processed and unprocessed foods.

Just some food for thought  :cool;

So many are down and my heart goes out to you all. Just know I am here for you if you need someone to talk to. I've been in those dark places on all fronts so I can relate. But this past year has been a good one. I've begun to win in life on many of these fronts. Health wise, financially, in relationships, it all feels like it is coming together. But I will never forget my times of darkness. Those moments forever change you on some deep level, and in the end they make you a better, stronger person for it.

So we won't see members of the original English cast return?

I just got off of work late. I'll be open for business shortly if you are still interested.

I liked the dialogue too. It would also cut back on their costs if they split the bill on English voice actors, making the overhead lower could ensure more games come to Western shores on both sides of the Atlantic.

Sell it to a sealed game collector and they buy a used copy and something else with the proceeds.

Sorry, I was pooped and just played a different game for a bit before going to bed. Tonight I'll do it for sure as it is Friday and I typically stay up later at the end of the week now.

That was a very well thought out and level-headed response on your part. Don't let anything they say going forward get to you. You are not the target of their hate even if they do not know it. The Scalpers are their true target.

About how much do you anticipate shipping to cost to the US? I might take you up on that for Villager, Wii Fit Trainer and others if they do not repopulate here and split the cost of a joint package with friends.

I just realized that my New 3DS + Monster Hunter and Majora will not give me coins. So I may not reach platinum this year. At least I got to gold...

I was hoping to get one of the NES Remix shirts with Samus playing Mario Brothers using those coins as well. Anyone want to help me out?

This reminds me that I should go back and complete this game. I don't remember if I had finished it.

Must have been a separate update. I assumed it was the same one as I got the game after all of the updates dropped. Found a link.

We just need to set up a Skype group or something.

Remember that the Wii U version of MH3U did not have keyboard and voice chat support until the post-release update that also added off-screen play. I take this as a sign of hope for both a U version and a patch for the 3DS version if it is technically feasible for them to do.

The Pokemon Stadium games could have been that gateway drug if they actually build on the first two like they should have instead of cutting features from each subsequent game.

The demo online is a blissful mad house. And I help fan the flames. I just pole vault non-stop with the insect glaive. It is just fun to do. I also read a tutorial on how to properly mount and ride beasts so I won't get thrown off.

You can press either a or x to stab while the monster head is green, when it is red you stop and hold r to hang on and slow down the progress of the monster in throwing you off. Also, you shouldn't attack the monster while someone has mounted it but in the demo, nobody seems to care and just goes hog wild on the beasts non-stop.

I'm having a blast with the status coatings and shots. I love poisoning, stunning, and sleeping monsters to help the team. I am running into an issue of my minions waking up the monsters in the middle of setting bombs so I may need to change their behaviors since that costs me a great deal of that bonus sleep damage.

Typically I have a solid connection. I rarely have issues with other games over the years. We can try again Thursday or Friday. This weekend there may be time for me to make some trips to your place.

He is a seasonal poster. I suspect he will be back at some point.

I just started all my weapons on the lowest forms and them upgraded them bit by bit to get them to the G-Rank levels. It was fun to push them through that way because I was forced to go back and hunt the lower monsters. It can also add a fun extra challenge if you restrict yourself to the weapon you want to upgrade.

You never had a reason to log into Club Nintendo more than once or twice a month.

I'm hoping they retool the DDP for this new award program. I thought the setup was really slick and it was all tied to your NNID. Allow you to exchange your coins for eShop credits, free games, or cool merch (one can hope).
