So i wasted my special pass yesterday... :(


I did too =( I accidentally hit "send to MiiMaker" or whatever, not realizing it would REMOVE Miyamoto from Mii Plaza. I'm so bummed.

So like an idiot I registered my 3DS about 2 weeks ago. I bought Luigi's Mansion and I'd REALLY like to get a copy of Professor Layton. If I call Nintendo do you think they'd make an exception?

Pretty sure if you register the XL (HAS TO BE XL NOT OG...) + Luigi game now you will get to pick the code.


Your well within the dates.

Nintendo 3DS XL hardware registered on or after 2/14/13 will qualify for this offer.

Can you give the code away or is it tied?

It's probably a good idea to hold off on updating your 3DS for a while, as the new update is buggy. I wanted to get into the eShop and was prompted to update, so I did it to get it over with. Near the end of the update, it says some error occurred and asked me to restart the system and try it again. Now whenever I try to access the eShop or Settings, I get a pop-up telling me that an error has occurred, to save anything I might've been doing before, and to restart the system. That happens every single time now.

It doesn't seem to be an issue with the SD card since I can pull that out and the game card out and still get the same pop-up. Games seem to run fine, so the system isn't completely fucked even though I'm still pissed about this now.

So what's good in the eshop? I have about $10 to spend there. I have Crimson Shroud which is really good. I know there is Crashmo, but I'm not sure if I want my head to explode while playing a game.

I've got Pushmo, Crashmo, and Mighty Switch Force.
Crashmo can get a little tough but it's not like, say, the 60 point puzzles in Layton. The bonus with it and Pushmo is you can get new puzzles online for free.

Mighty Switch Force is good but it's also short. The great things about all these games is the stages only take like a few minutes to solve, so they're good on the go.

I also have Cave Story which is a fun Metroid style game

If I were to get just one "Mo" game, should I just go with Crashmo because it's newer?

One of the major things the new 3DS update adds is support for that Retail-to-Digital Save Transfer Tool. From what I've read, it only supports moving the save to the digital version, not in reverse, and it deletes the save from the retail version, so it's not meant for backing up saves or anything like that. It also doesn't help that those games are poorly-priced on the eShop, so it would be better to either go digital from the start or stay with the retail version.

Mutant Mudds is a good retro-platformer that is currently on sale for $5.99 on the eShop.

I guess this could come in handy if I decide to get Super Mario 3D Land and trade in my physical copy.
Would've liked this to come out before I sold my physical copy of Mario Kart 7...

Good to know! I can finally transfer my MK7 save and sell my physical copy, further reducing the overall price of my XL =)

I was really considering that, since I'm so damn lazy with the carts, but the low resale price of MK7 means I will have spent $60 on the game.

I got my XL for $160, with MK7, and a $20 GC, so whatever I sell the cart for will still more or less be worth it. I am surprised the trade in values are so low, though.

Holy shit - I was at GDC today for about an hour and 16 people visited my Mii Plaza. I'm going to get an absolute assload tomorrow when I'm there all day. Pretty cool.

Surprisingly the 3ds update that was just issued was really painless and only took a very short amount of time.

I remember last year at comics con I got hundreds of Miis. I was there everyday. Even in populated cities it seems a little hard to get people to visit you plaza.

I get on the trolley around Mission and Fashion Valley where most people who have a 3DS seem to be and the most I have received is seven, that was 4 days ago. 3 of those were from GS employees...:roll:

When I was in NYC I would get four or five at the Nintendo World Store, but surprisingly last time I got 10 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and they were from other countries so I'd rack up those achievements

There's a 10 Mii limit, you have to cycle through them and let them through the plaza gate to get more than that. Which means lots of puzzle pieces real quick, but Find Mii is way too time-consuming for quick cycling like that.

That's what I thought... I checked yesterday and had 10 and then got home and had 6 more. Today I had 10 and I thought it would be WAY more than that. The limit is so lame!
