@World
Really glad to hear you are enjoying the game. I always like to hear feedback, good or bad.

I just wish I could have got the 3DS version out by now. It's pretty much finished, but we're just not happy with the art.

ImDiggerDan commented on Guide: 3DS XL System Transfer:

I would advise this additional first step:
Use the 3DS to move any DSiWare to the SD Card first.

This will prevent the system transfer process re-downloading them again which takes ages and also may well eat up the data allowance for those planning to do it over a mobile connection.

You could delete them and re-download them later, but this will cause you to lose any saved games.

I'm tempted to keep sending my 3DS system in for the free evaluation. They'll send it back with a report that nothing is wrong and hopefully a ton of StreetPass hits from all the Nintendo staff....

I really wasn't that interested in this game until watching the 13 minute long video by the producer on the eShop yesterday. The multiplayer looks really involved, although I probably wouldn't play multiplayer that much, but the amount of work and content that has been put into the overall package is really tempting me.

If only I didn't have to buy a house right now. :(

Also, doesn't this one support the circle pad pro thing? There was no mention of it on the video.

ImDiggerDan commented on eShop Game Size Limit is 2GB:

So, back to what I said in comment 32 - Team Meat got it wrong.

And some Vita download games are already 2GB? Yeah? I feel bad for Vita owners, then. At least on 3DS you aren't as likely to need to buy a new memory card quite so soon and if you do need to, at least you won't need to take out a mortgage to afford it. :)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I've played some fantastic games with hours of gameplay that take up less memory than my animated avatar icon. Yeah, more capacity does increase the potential for more levels, better audio and a video, but you don't need that much more than the Wii's 40MB limit to add more levels. I can live without fantastic audio and FMV cutscenes, particulalry in download games.

ImDiggerDan commented on GAME Drops The Last Story Limited Edition:

I think (based on earlier rumours from staff that were pretty much confirmed) it's the suppliers who won't give Game any more credit to buy stuff with.

I'll be glad to see them sink - if you have any gift cards or other credit in the company, time to cash it in, I say.

ImDiggerDan commented on Out Now: Nintendo 3DS Ambassador GBA Games:

It isn't a case of "lazy ports". The games run the hardware in DS mode, not 3DS mode, hence why no Street Pass and why when you shut them down, it takes a while for the menu to populate again - the 3DS hardware is effectively rebooting fully.

ImDiggerDan commented on 3DS Firmware Update Available Now:

OMG - Updated 3 systems this morning, no problem. Oddly the wife's system already had the update downloaded and just needed to apply it which took seconds. Totally forgot about the StreetPass Mii Plaza though! Loading now...

I seem to remember that the original wording suggested that the GBA games would begin to be delivered before the end of the year, ie only 1 of them had to be available before the end of this month.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if they get drip fed to us one by one over next year.
