I tried the demo and didn't like it. I just don't like the concept for a 3DS. I'll stick to Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution.

On another note, I hope the 3DS gets a real Final Fantasy game.

I just bought a used 3DS Xl (with Mario Kart pre-installed). Everything seems to be fine with it but it says that there is credit in my eshop account. How do eshop accounts work? Do i need to log off (how?) and create a new account? If i can do that will it affect Mario Kart? Is the credit just linked to the device?

Sorry for all the questions, this is my first nintendo portable since the gameboy advance, and i have no idea what i am doing.

I finally got around to getting Crosswords Plus and I'm not a fan of what they've done to the early part of that game. If I'm remembering correctly, Crosswords DS had all of the puzzle modes open up front with some being locked until you play enough of each mode. Plus only offers crosswords up front and even though I've played a good 25 puzzles already, the other puzzle modes are still locked.

I've unlocked a couple of special crossword puzzles, including a gigantic puzzle that took me nearly two hours to complete, but I'm hoping that I really don't have to do a Fuck ton of crosswords to unlock the stuff I enjoyed enough in the original that I had to play through first.

It's linked to the system, not the device. Which means you have free credit, more or less.

I would detach the current Club Nintendo account and add yours instead, though.

It will not affect the games on the device.

No, you don't have a specific account. If there's money there, you can go ahead and spend it.

I already have a physical copy of Mario Kart 7 before I picked up a new 3DS XL with the pre-installed copy. Is there anyway I can transfer the pre-installed game to another 3DS XL? I want to keep the physical copy for me and give my nephew the pre-installed version.

I have the regular flame red 3DS now and for the price I paid ($99) because I managed to find one of the clearanced systems its quite good. DS games look fine on it, the stylus placement could use some help but that is not an issue for me since I prefer to use my own larger stylus. I would probably have a much different opinion of the system if I paid the original $250 asking price... yikes!

I don't think the circle pad actually contacts the top screen as mentioned previously but I do I think the raised bottom of the bottom screen contacts the top screen, however I have noticed this seems to only happen when you put pressure on the top screen. Aka when you are holding the system in your hand and holding the top and bottom at the same time, perhaps putting the system in a pocket would cause this effect. Anyways this can be fixed easily with screen protectors so your screen doesn't get permanently damaged or by putting larger bumpers on the top screen.

For the preinstalled copy of Mario I think a system transfer would work but I think it would take all your data and move it to the other system, unless there is a way to just select the one game to give (which I think there might be). You may have to resort to keeping the preinstalled copy for yourself and giving your nephew the physical copy.

So how does the whole friend thing work again? I have some puzzle pieces and today I got a notice that someone was "visiting" my Mii plaza. This brings my total to 11 out of 110 puzzle pieces. At this rate I'll never get them all.

Isn't that a streetpass? You can get puzzle pieces if you walk around with the 3DS in sleep mode and collect coins. You can get 10 coins per day (100 steps per coin), which adds up to 5 puzzle pieces.

I have only taken mine out a few times so I can't say I have gotten any Streetpasses yet. Keep in mind you can streetpass demo units at Gamestop and Target but I don't think Best Buy units work. But I know exactly where to go in my area to get some passes so I am gonna try this weekend. If not I should have plenty of opportunity during spring and summer. I could have gotten some at this location a couple weeks ago as I walked by several kids with a 3DS, however I did not have a 3DS a couple weeks ago. I will post back when I get some streetpasses.

Presidents day is also coming up, the malls will be really busy, might I suggest going shopping then if you are able to?

I don't know about modes, but I recall that it forced you to go through all of the easy crosswords, all of which were as dumb as dirt.

I estimated how long it would take until I got decent difficulty crosswords and traded it in the next opportunity. Nothing beats NYTimes Crosswords.

I won't touch Crosswords Plus. I hope it gets better for you.

I have only taken mine out a few times so I can't say I have gotten any Streetpasses yet.


Once, I took mine to a children's museum and I got some hits. I was jazzed. I then began taking my 3DS everywhere, including airports.

And got jack. Well, I did get irritation, because I kept checking it was on and wireless was on and got no hits. Haven't bothered since.

Some people organize Streetpass meetups. There was a big one in NYC that wasn't entirely necessary because it's not hard to get a streetpass in manhattan.

I have gotten plenty of hits on my Pokemon Black and Pokemon Black 2 games, and that requires you to walk by a player who is specifically playing Pokemon Black/White or Pokemon Black/White 2! Most recently I got one when I went to this estate sale, and I don't think anyone was playing in the house, and I got one at TJ Maxx, yes TJ Maxx. TJ Maxx has chairs near the entrance and kids frequently sit there and play their DS systems. This leads me to believe I will definitely get streetpasses at some point even if it does take a while, I don't mind being vigilant and patient. My cousin also has a 3DS so I can definitely streetpass him and so does my other cousin but the chances of me seeing him with his 3DS is pretty slim, so at least I have that and the demo units to work off of.

Here's the thing about my area, we have a lot of Canadians here and apparently they love Pokemon, the DS and the 3DS, as all the hits I have gotten on my Pokemon games have been Canadians. How do I know, it tells me their region when I checked the game. I think I am starting to like the Canadians now!

Edit: Got my first streetpass tonight, don't know where it came from. I did go to Target but this Target to my knowledge does not have a DS demo unit at least one that I can see.

The unlock system for Crosswords Plus seems to be solely based on playing it on new days, as I unlocked a Word of the Day puzzle mode on my second day with the game and then Word Search on the third day. That's kind of crazy to have it unlock that way without a hint of how that works, but at least I have the mode that I'll burn through right away while slowly working through the crossword puzzles.

It's old and not as good as Picross DS or Picross 3D, but Mario's Picross is worth what it costs ($2 or $3). I'm still hoping for Picross E to show up on the US eShop.

Mighty Switch Force (pretty short, but it's fun and I love the 3D effect 2D sprites have on the system)

If you like RPGs, I highly recommend The Denpa Men. It's more dungeon crawler than epic adventure, but I'm addicted to searching for new Denpa Men over WiFi signals when I travel for work.

Cave Story is also really really good, if you don't already have one of the 50 other versions floating around out there.

Art of Balance Touch is also a pretty enjoyable puzzle game from what little I've played so far.

Pushmo is a must. I haven't played Crashmo yet, but I imagine that is probably a must as well.


Crashmo is just as good if not better.

Seriously, wtf is up with that. Is it still not up? (haven't checked in a while). Picked up Picross 3D again and would def be in for more Picross goodness. There are a few apps for iPhone but they're just not as good (the controls are nowhere near as refined).

I just picked up Paper Mario despite all the negativity... I'm sure it will be at least OK. That makes 5 retail games already for me + Pushmo. I'm planning on getting Luigi's Mansion in March too. The system is definitely picking up steam...
