    aykay55 I was researching the T-Mobile Netflix On Us thing when I took a long look at the T in T-Mobile and noticed something. The two dots beside the T are the eyes, the vertical line of the T is the nose, and the horizontal line at the top is the hair. I have a wild imagination. Sorry in advance for clogging the server with this dumb blog post.
    aykay55 Yes, I'm very late. Better late than never! So far I've been loving it, and haters hating, I updated the Switch, so no homebrew. Anything cool I should know about the Switch? Btw, I'm posting this from my Switch. And sorry for not being online since like forever, life got in the way.
    aykay55 What’s the one food y’all eat which fills up your stomach and gives you the boost you need? For me it’s Entenmann’s Little Bites!
    aykay55 Miiverse, which everyone knows is one of the worst social media attempts in history, is closing tonight (or tomorrow morning, or this afternoon, doesn't matter). Now, I'm not pissed that it is going, I'm pissed at what the admins did to me. Here's the story:

    I was in the New Super Luigi U. community, aka Memeverse, and I saw a post from my good friend Plasma. What was strange was that there was a video attached to the post, where it shouldn't be. I had commented saying 'I know one way to do it, but it doesn't work in the NSLU community. That's cool'. Then I get a 2 week ban for a service which will be shut down in a matter of hours. I don't see any offensive/off-topic content in that! I don't even have a record of getting banned. I had gotten banned once for [something I don't remember, but for a fact it didn't violate anything], posting a pic of Captain Toad in the SSB community, and now this. Then I sent a message saying 'I did not violate blah blah', then they 'determined it is in violation of blah blah'. C'mon Nintendo! When you reply to a admin message it does go to a human. I know because the first time I had gotten banned I replied, then they replied first saying it is violating, then immediately after it said I didn't, meaning someone made a mistake and tried to fix it, but for some reason I still wasn't unbanned, and I couldn't reply to the admin anymore either. I honestly feel like paying Arian to unban my account, I know it was a terrible service but I still want to see it go, maybe post my goodbe message, reply to posts saying Miiverse will be saved and blah. I know when I cool off I will realize this did not need to be posted, but whatever. Arian, where are you?!

    This is not the first time I talked about hacking on Miiverse, hell I made a discussion on hacking Miiverse, and it was never taken down. I bet I was on Nintendo's watchlist, I have a feeling they did this on purpose, what should I do guys?

    aykay55 Think about this for a second:

    Most people have been buying two type of consoles for oh-so-long, a handheld and a home console, equalling about $500-$600 spent on consoles. Nintendo changed the system by creating a console that works as both, meaning one person would only buy one console instead of two, meaning only $300 for a hybrid console. Hardware accessories, only for home consoles, may add another $100. Now, if people buy a Switch, they will be complete. They won't need a new console. Now, if Nintendo wants people to buy their new consoles, they can't sell just a handheld or just a home console. They'll have to either sell another hybrid console (New Nintendo Switch XL Mini or something lol), or make handheld/home soooooooo good that people will have to buy it, either hardware or software-wise (Holographic Gaming ftw!).

    So, what do you guys think is Nintendo's next step? Will they make a new Switch, go back to handhelds and homes, or just stop at the Switch altogether, and create games for other systems and end up like SEGA.
    aykay55 The time has finally come to kiss my Wii U goodbye. Super Mario Oddysey has won the battle. I'm selling my ENTIRE Wii U 'collection'. I'm asking you guys what would be a fair price for the following:
    (All games include boxes and manuals - Perfect Condition)
    • Wii U Deluxe 32GB Console + Gamepad - With Box/Stands/Sensor Bar - Like New Condition
    • 4 Wii Remotes - Includes Covers/Wrist Straps - Perfect Condition
    • 2 Nunchuks - Perfect Condition
    • Wii Balance Board - Like New Condition
    • New Super Mario Bros U.
    • Nintendo Land
    • Lego City Undercover
    • Super Mario 3D World
    • Mario Kart 8
    • Super Smash Bros.
    • Super Mario Maker - Includes Idea Book
    • Splatoon
    • Mario Party 10
    So what do you guys think is a fair price. I'm planning to get a Nintendo Switch and MK8, Splatoon 2 (Maybe), 1-2 Switch and Super Mario Oddysey.
    aykay55 Has it ever happened to you that you were about to do something, and you just forget what you were going to do once you got there/were about to do it? Once in a blue moon? Well, that seems to happen to me more than often. At least once every day. I'd be playing Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on my Wii U, then press the HOME button, press Internet Browser, click the Search button, and then . . ...? I forgot why I'd enter the browser. Then I'd start doing something else like check GBATemp which actually works surprisingly. Then I'd return and suddenly realize, no? Yes, I'd continue playing the game for a good 2-3 minutes until I realize I was missing the first diamond, then I'd remember why I opened the browser. It occurs very frequently for me. It makes it very hard for me to focus on anything. I find it hard to keep up in class and it makes me feel like the world is rushing past me and it's hard to keep up. I fear being awkward during a conversation, while others don't have to care, they're never awkward. It's hard to explain. So my question is to you, GBATemp community, is this normal? Is it just harder for some to focus than others? Do I have a problem? Is it a condition? How can I prevent it?

    Thanks in advance guys!
    aykay55 I can't say much, since I don't want my friend to lose his job, but here is the bottom line:

    The phone feels like a toy.

    It feels like a V-Tech phone. A kid's device. Plastic Back. It runs Android 8, which has a nice, playful look. The phone is fast. Really fast. But the phone doesn't feel premium. I don't like it. It has a Snapdragon (you guys know which one) which is great. It's a great phone, don't get me wrong. But it's not the best phone you can get. It doesn't have a alot of the features (can't say in particular) that the other phones do. I hope this gives you a little insight on what the Pixel 2 will be like.

    Ask me some questions and I'll see if I can answer them :)

    aykay55 Before my Wii U felt like the funnest thing in the world. It had games I would enjoy playing alone and with family. I loved chilling with it all the time, but now I don't. I don't enjoy it anymore. It's not that I feel the games are old or something. Have I changed? Has my life changed? Has my Wii U changed? What happened?
