I was informed there was an update to the Mii Plaza. Tried it three times, and it failed each time. Fuck it.

So is this the new account system we've all been waiting for, or is it not quite there yet?

Someone on GAF posted a thread about Fire Emblem and how it bugs them that none of the characters have any feet or anything, just stubs. I Just started, I'm a couple hours in, and that's all that I can see ever since they pointed it out. Ugh.

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

Was excited to see yesterday's Japan Virtual Console announcement was next week's release of the original "Final Fantasy"!

I checked the US VC listing and it seems to be pretty sparse compared to Japan, and no word on Final Fantasy as of yet...

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

I believe this will work from what I saw on the support site, but just wanted to run it by breathers first.

So I just transferred my old Ambassador 3DS to my new, sexy Zelda 3DSXL. The final step was to exchange SD cards so it could move the DSiWare from the old to the new. No big deal except that the XL came with a 4gb SD card as opposed to the original's 2gb. Obviously I'd prefer to keep the bigger one.

If I simply transfer the data manually on a computer, will that allow me to use the 4gb again? I can't now because my Ambassador titles don't show up, so I think there must be some license data on the SD card.

Ha, sorry, had I saw it I would have answered. I recently transferred the data from my 4gb card to a 32gb card that I bought. I've been buying more and more 3DS stuff digitally so I thought I may take that dive. Yes, it was very easy to do like you saw as well.

I really liked it. I put 60 hours into it. The story is nonsensical but the light strategy elements were fun.

Damn. I'm gonna wait for a hard copy to drop and then I'll scoop it up. I had fun with the demo from the eshop.

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

Been playing "Final Fantasy 1" this week, for the first time actually. Although quite frustrating when you're used to playing the latter sequels, it's still a fun relic from the past.

(Frustrating that there isn't a way to guard attacks, find out who can equip what until AFTER you buy stuff, and the countless number of times that you see "miss" on screen when you attack...., stuff that was later improved in sequels)

No mention of when "Final Fantasy II" will be available on virtual console, which I also haven't played, I doubt "Final Fantasy III" will come out on VC since the DS remake version is amazingly good.

Anyway, another big surprise is that next week in Japan for the Virtual Console, PC Engine games (AKA TurboGrafx 16 games) are coming to the 3DS for the first time. "Gradius" and "Kung Fu"

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

Was given the Zelda 3DS XL for Christmas. Kind of annoying that I haven't been able to access the Eshop all day in order to get it. Luckily I was also given Animal Crossing so I have been able to get some use from this.

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

I still have had no success accessing the eshop to get my copy of Zelda. It's pretty damn infuriating. I want to support Nintendo, I really do. I just don't understand how they can't be ready for this. I have a damn Zelda 3DS that I can't play Zelda on!

This is inexcusable. What are they going to do to make this up to people?

Re: Nintendo Announces 3DS - 3D w/o Glasses!

I got the Zelda 3DS, so I'm in the same boat. I've been trying to download it for 2 days. I bought my son the Mario and Luigi Dream Team edition 3DS. Luckily that one came preinstalled.

I also bought my son Animal Crossing. He started a town on his 3DS. I put the game in my 3DS and it takes me to his town. i can't figure out how to start my own town. I'm new to the 3DS. Is this in the settings? His info shared with mine somehow?

One town, per game... up to 4 houses within that town (... one per save slot on the game). The first person that starts a game is the Mayor (in this case, your son is the mayor).

I didn't realize that the save data is on the game cartridge. I thought everything was saved to the 3DS.

I'm also in the same boat....or my son is anyways. It sucks but I also got him Pokemon and Fire Emblem so at least he has a couple games to keep him busy. Still frustrating though. It should have come pre-installed like the Mario & Luigi edition.

not sure if serious but I wanted to throw my two cents in. 20 years ago we didnt have to deal with all this bullshit. You bought a system bought some games and fired it up. Now, everything is system updates, long ass installs, outages. Its fucking annoying as hell.

Yeah it really is.

I actually called Nintendo last night to complain about the situation. Their response was "just keep trying. People are getting in." I tried to explain that it's pretty ridiculous to buy a special edition version of a system and not be able to use it, but she just kept repeating that party line.

I woke up at 6:30 this morning and was finally able to download it.
