Not sure I would like that. The charm of the show for me is in it being animated.

Movies & TV / Re: Rate the last movie you've seen
« on: February 24, 2013, 04:09:23 PM »
The last movie I watched was License to Drive (1988)

It's probably been 20 years since I last saw it, and after looking it up on Wikipedia, saw that it was Heather Graham's first her first high-profile starring role.

I enjoyed it now just as much as when I was younger. Not the best movie, but a fun one from my childhood.

Star Tropics got my vote, because I have fond memories of playing it.  Super Mario Bros RPG and Actraiser are both great games and I enjoyed the Hell of out them, Star Tropics and ST2 has always felt to me like the black sheep in Nintendo's lineup.

General Chat / Re: Shrinkwrapped books at B&N
« on: September 12, 2009, 11:56:29 PM »
Most of the books that I get that are shrink-wrapped, are special press (Gauntlet, Cemetery Dance), special or limited edition, and or signed by the author.  I mainly do my book shopping through B&N.com, and this is usually the case as well.  I've never gotten a normal edition shrink-wrapped, but not all the signed editions are shrink-wrapped either, Edward Lee's books for example aren't always wrapped, and sometimes when they are, they aren't signed editions at all, but most of them are, if they aren't mass-market.

That's great news.  I would have probably checked it out of they changed the voice actors, but I don't know how much I would have liked it, though.

Hmm, I am glad they are finally giving us the Red Pikmin hat. Doesn't matter to me though since I already got it from somebody with a Japanese copy (Japan got the hat a few months ago).

I've been wearing mine all the time lately, got tired of the crown I'd been wearing.

Does anyone have 640,000 to 800,000 bells lying around? The special in my town today is a throne... I figure it must be pretty rare if it's that expensive.

Buy one and then save up and buy another on point day.  Then you should get 32,000 points is your buy for 640,000 instead of 6,400 points.  I got mine today and I'm saving up again for point day.

Edit: Boo hoo, Not for Sale.  Well that just sucks...

We got a couple of inches last Tuesday.  Was the most we had here at one time since I've been here.  Back at home they got a lot more.

So I'm nothing but a nuisance?  I hate you all.

Sometimes :P But not all the time.  ;D

Is there another forum that's more fun than this one?  I ask that seriously.  When you say MSN, what do you mean?  MSN gaming forums?

MSN Messenger.

96 Bells.  It's the cheapest I've ever seen it  :'(

If you guys can help me, I'll make it worth your while. I'm trying to pay off my second floor.

I bought mine this past Sunday for 91 bells.  Too bad so far Nook is being a bitch and isn't selling over 70 bells so far.

No don't leave!
Why not?

The boards never really got over the great crash/slowdown a few months after it started.  How many people who came over from the old EZboards stayed through the epic slowness and are still around?  Even after the kinks were worked out, the whole feel of the place never returned, it was then and still today a muted barren feel to the place.

Those that stuck through it had slowly been either driven away like Bill, bored away like Infy, or banned like Mario, and all because of disinterest in dealing with someone the Mods would rather compliment the supposed courtesy instead of see the larger picture of what is said overall because they only look at the random post he makes, don't see the snide talk and low blow down talking, the very active derailing he does and when any action is made to get the thread back on topic it turns into a flame war and he comes out smelling sweet because he isn't "direct" in his attacks.

There have been a lot of people who joined and stayed for a while, but really when you think about it, other than a handful or so, how many do you remember being here for any length of time really adding to the place other than to be a nuisance?

I'm looking into the Clue card game, myself.  I'll have to look into this now.  We have (usually unless something comes up) game night every Friday and play different games. 

Clue Card Game?


Has anyone checked out the new "version" of Clue?  "Clue: Discover the Secrets" seems to be an interesting remix of the game.

Clue Card Game


The card game version doesn't have a board.

It would be great to live in a black-white world with no gray.  But I don't want to say it's okay to attack companies and not people, but in the end I'm going to have to because the companies are not members (to my knowledge, but who knows.) and almost always it's done in a way to demoralize the other person.  Sure there is nothing to be done about hurting other people's feelings, but that doesn't mean there can't be a concerted effort not to do just that, even if in the end we aren't all going to get along butterflies and sunshine. 

When someone is called a hypocrite it's usually done because the person slinging it around can't think of a normal convincing argument against what the other person has to say so they just call them a hypocrite because they don't like their idea's/opinions whether they have genuinely changed over time or not.  It's a fact of life, you are allowed to change your mind, and you don't have to give a reason why and defend it, and you shouldn't be called out on it either.

I always go by the rule, if I don't have something nice or meaningful to add, I don't say anything even if I want to really try and force my opinion out there.  You can not possible know how many times these last nearly 6 years we've had this forum I have deleted everything I have typed before posting because the only thing I would accomplish would be to cause a fight.  (Ian should follow that philosophy before he post what he seemingly pulls out of his butt just about every time he posts something, then maybe so many people here wouldn't dislike or outright hate him.)

Understand that in order to get perma-banned, you have to REALLY try hard.  We don't ban people without cause, we don't do it on a whim, and we don't get any pleasure out of doing it (frankly, it's a bunch of drama we don't need).

And this is a big part of the problem as far as I'm concerned.  Why treat banning as a last resort?  It's not a nuke (that would be shutting down the forums completely); it's a targeted assault.  (I can't believe I'm saying this, but) Kotaku is great because they regularly ban terrible posters.  If someone is all around sucky, get rid of them.  Posting is a privilege, not a right.  If nothing else, I think you should temp-ban people at the drop of a hat.  It would keep people on their toes and make them think before they post something for the world to see.

EDIT:  I am not referring to anyone specific poster.  Truth be told, I don't think we have that many people fit into the above category.  But they are out there, and life would be better if they were gone.

I don't think I'm comfortable with the idea that banning should be used to weed out "sub-standard" posters. Most of those people GoldenPhoenix seems perfectly capable of chasing away on her own... j/k &P

Calling someone a hypocrite is a direct personal attack.  Being called a hypocrite is not a nice thing.  Regardless of whether it's mild or harsh.  And if that's against the rules then it's against the rules.  It just goes to show that depending on the Mod who gets the complaint the discipline or lack there of, is where the problem is.  There should be one standard and all members should be held to that and Mods should not pick and choose how they act on the complaints.

I don't know. Is it a personal attack if someone is specifically called a hypocrite? Is it a personal attack if their actions are described as hypocritical? What's the difference?

None really, both are a cheap way of insulting someone.  Being called a hypocrite or hypocritical is a direct insult to the person it is directed at, where personally to them or their opinions, and when you're on a forum, or anywhere on the internet, this is the basest form of attack one can do to someone.

One time, back when the Brawl forum was still around I was in an argument with someone (don't remember who) and that person called me a hypocrite. When I warned a mod about it all he said was "Eh, it was a mild insult". Whether the insult was harsh or mild it was still a personal attack, and those are against the rules.

I only vaguely recall this incident, but I'm inclined to agree with the mod on this one.  Someone calling you a hypocrite isn't a direct insult.  It sounds like someone disagreed with you and you went crying to mommy.  Mommy told you to grow a pair.  (Believe it or not, I don't mean this in a rude way--it's just the only way I can think to describe it.)

If someone called you a moron for saying two different things at different times it's an insult.  If someone calls you a hypocrite for the same reason it's not an insult, they're just calling you out.

Calling someone a hypocrite is a direct personal attack.  Being called a hypocrite is not a nice thing.  Regardless of whether it's mild or harsh.  And if that's against the rules then it's against the rules.  It just goes to show that depending on the Mod who gets the complaint the discipline or lack there of, is where the problem is.  There should be one standard and all members should be held to that and Mods should not pick and choose how they act on the complaints.

The problem with Mods is some don't know the difference between friends and business friends.

I've been more or less on my way out the past year and a half, really I don't see a reason to stay if the good people are picked on while the idiots get to say what they like and when called on they run to the mods and hold on to their skirts.

Sorry, Pale, but you have not been a fair Mod.  From the beginning you have more or less turned a blind eye to the obvious and instead decided to take a so called stand on the most idiotic reasons.  And NO and I a not going to go searching through the archives for an example.  It's just fact, and really it's been pointed out already. You want people to be nice to each other, IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN,  WHY DO YOU EVEN BOTHER?  All you do is give Ian more an excuse to continue while people like Bill feel like they've just had a huge pile of crap dumped on thier heads.

Lindy, it may not be your agenda, but you sure as hell come off as a instigator in anti-Nintendo sentiment.  Your remarks in the past speak for themselves.

Bill, good luck, I'll see you around the internet one form or another.

And as for Mario.  I've "known" him for a while now and know that for the most part he is being facetious and anybody who doesn't  know that should have a long time ago.  If he was deliberately breaking the rules, did any of you mods think that maybe there was a reason why.  Ian is possibly the worst member on this forum, but you refuse to call him out.  Is it because it's easier to go after the ones that fight back, (which is just about the most cowardly and slimy thing possible) or are one of you really Ian?

Have you realized that NWR has not been a very active place the past couple of years?  It doesn't take a genius to realize that when you let people like Ian decide the attitude and environment of the place, then people won't want to come back.

Just go and look at the welcome thread.  How many of those people are still here?

I realized today, at work, that i forgot to water my turnips yesterday after planting them only just this past Monday... I let out an expletive aloud, luckily no one heard.

There's hope. If you have the silver watering can you can revive dead turnips and flowers in a day.

I do not.

Speaking of silver though.. what's special about the silver net? I saw one at nooks and bought it just cuz.

I think the Silver Net is a larger net, so to speak, so it would be easier to catch bugs.  I bought one the only time a silver tool was so far ever available at my Nook's.

I won first place in the fishing tourney but got a Silver Trophy.  I guess because I already got the gold from the last one, they just give the next one down.  So if I win first again I will get Bronze?

Yeah, I guess the only option is to go out and buy an SD card reader of some kind. :\

Funny enough, when I bought my card reader I thought it wouldn't see much use outside of SSB Brawl snapshots. But then I realized I could use it to unload my pictures without connecting my camera, upload videos and music and use them on my 360.

They are quite cheap and you might find some use to them. Plus, AC pictures ARE part of very important memories :) .

Because my laptop is vista and nothing works with vista,(I couldn't even install my internet software, luckily I didn't need it to get online) I never even bothered to try and install my camera software so I just use the built in card reader to pull all my pictures and videos off a lot quicker than using the download manager on my desktop.
