When they introduced the Mii Plaza games, they added 4 new puzzles: Starlets, Xenoblade, New Super Mario Bros. U and Skyward Sword. Mario & Luigi was added 1-2 weeks after they came out in North America.

Monster Hunter 4 is getting a new LE 3DS bundle post-launch. And you read right, it's a 3DS, not an XL.

I like it. never a fan of the more tribal look of previous MH editions but this design looks pretty good.

 

I like the 3DS, looks sleek.  While the roundness of XL works for some design, the more angular cut on the 3DS is just "cooler".

That's sweet. I've always preferred the 3DS to the XL.

I think I may have some how updated as I saw a notification about replay stations.  Is there a way to tell if my 3ds is in fact updated to get streetpass via relay?  I would like to remove it if possible.

You can't remove updates yet.

 

You can tell your current firmware in System Settings.

I got a StreetPass today from somebody that I could tell bought their 3DS for Pokemon Y since that was their last game and they only had one puzzle piece, which I luckily didn't have yet.

How bad is the pixelation on the 3DS XL? I've looked around for comparison, but haven't had much luck. I'm used to my retina Macbook Pro and high pixel density phones, so I don't know if I can deal with it on the XL.

It's honestly pretty bad. It doesn't bother me much, but if you're one of those tech sticklers it may bother the crap outta you.

Thanks. I'm usually not that bad, but I've found that after we got retina macbook pros I've become a bit of a screen snob :/

 

The standard 3DS looks pretty sharp though? I'll have to drive around this weekend and see if I can find demo units of both.

It isn't that bad, IMO, and I am a snob about it too.  I had the regular DS and upgraded - it bothered me at first but I honestly don't give it a second thought now.  The graphics in most games aren't super detailed for the most part so it's fine.  I think the bigger size trumps the slightly lesser PQ.

I sacrificed a couple of pixels for the awesomeness of the larger screens.  Yes, some games are more noticeable than others.  But not having to squint makes it so much better.  I DO miss the better speakers on the regular 3DS.  These just don't have the oomph.  Would I be able to give back my XL?  No.  I quite like it.  My hands don't cramp anymore.  The screen's much bigger.  I like.

The best thing to do would be to try out demo units for a decent amount of time.  The XL kind of bothers me after a while when I tried it out when it came out.  I recently played the M&L demo until I beat Bowser boss at a GS, and it wasn't that bad.  I guess some colors/games are worse than others when it come to the pixelation etc.

Checking for demos is the smart thing. I've tried both. Bought an XL. If you're a "screen snob", you'll be better off with a Vita.

 

If you get to see the 3ds & XL screens side by sideyou might be like OMG! Even see the size difference in YouTube vids is dramatic.

Yeah I definitely prefer the bigger screens. Already hard to get motivated to play a portable over something on a console on the 55" TV, and the regular 3ds screen is especially tiny.

Speakers on all portables are terrible, headphones are a must IMO.

Well it looks like swapnote is basically dead as Nintendo is taking away all online functionality that swapnote has, way to go Nintendo, just discontinue a feature because a few people choose to abuse it with inappropriate images or whatever. I definitely won't be buying a Wii U this holiday season.

Between the supposed releases of Miiverse 3DS and Flipnote, I'm not that surprised. Less surprised to know that Nintendo doesn't know how any messaging system will have some people sharing a bit too much on it.

And not even with the courtesy of writing a Farewell note.

Streetpass on Swapnote drives the connection time past what most are willing to hit. It causes inconsistent hits often.

 

I tested it on my systems. Unit 1 might tag Unist 2, but 2 won't get a tag from one. It happens fairly often when Swapnote is involved.

(snort) I love my WiiU.  You know how often I've been playing and the significant other wants to watch TV... push of a button and BAM it's on the controller and I can play to my hearts content. 

 

But that has ZERO to do with Nintendo disabling Swapnote until they can stop the spread of inappropriate imagery.  Which I appreciate as a father.  

 

2 different things.

Pretty sure if you don't want your kids to see inappropriate imagery, it's pretty simple to use parental controls and view the content before they do.

I really don't want them to make swapnote slower just so they can check the content of what's being sent. Especially since I'm perfectly okay with my friends sending me pictures of 3D wangs. It's kind of what I figured swapnote would be used for in my group, since it's completely useless for arranging to play games etc.

This has to do with Nintendo policing the adults that use their system, though if they launched Miiverse on the 3DS I would forgive them for this. I don't want a Wii U if they are going to pull shenanigans like this. It would be easy enough to disable swapnote at system setup so users could choose whether or not to enable it.
