SurferClock commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Multi-Man Smash using the Miis on my system! So many garbage StreetPass tags from big names like "asjsfhss;j001" from Anguilla, so of course I wanna beat them up! Yah! Take that! That's for not giving me any puzzle pieces! Take that!

SurferClock commented on Review: IQ Test (Wii U eShop):

Yeah, I talked to the developer via Twitter, and he really seems like a nice guy. He's not laughing maniacally at us, he's not trying to deceive people out of their money, and he's certainly not trying to "bring more shovelware to the Wii U." Quite simply, he found that the IQ Test concept seemed to work well for the Wii U, and wanted to use the Gamepad to its full advantage. Hardcore Nintendo gamers were never the demographic he was aiming for, and the sooner that's realized, the better off we'll all be. This is a party game, a casual game meant for folks who just want to have a good time. That's not to say we can't leverage criticism, of course, and I feel like the review given here by the staff was definitely a fair one. Everyone deserves a fair shake if they're capable of developing games for the Wii U, and clearly it had to be approved by Nintendo themselves before it could get on the digital shelf of the eShop.

SurferClock commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Utilizing the StreetPasses I got for the Mii Plaza (18 total yesterday, I work at a spring break destination!), Super Mario Bros. 2 (US) and 3, AC:NL, and finally getting back to Pokemon Battle Trozei and Rusty's Real Deal Baseball.

SurferClock commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

They need to make it so that DS games/DSiWare can be played on 3DS without you losing the potential for StreetPasses! I never understood exactly why I had to sacrifice that connectivity just to be able to play my older games.

SurferClock commented on StreetPass Games Producers Tell Origins of Mii...:

Absolutely LOVE the new StreetPass games, it brought the concept back to life for me in a big way and makes me feel much more involved with my Mii. I've only just now managed to complete Flower Town's 22 tickets and still have several more to go in the other games. Mii Force is just ridiculous with what it wants players to do to earn the tickets, but the others I can't complain about. They've brought new challenge and purpose to the Mii Plaza, and it's something that's quite welcomed.

SurferClock commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

I hope SpotPass in SwapNote makes a comeback. I found it a fun way (if a little tacky and limiting) to communicate with 3DS friends. I always enjoyed the surprise of receiving them, especially the Special Notes. I plan on keeping it around in case that day comes, not to mention I have 400 SwapNotes I'd like to hang on to.

SurferClock commented on Improved StreetPass and Nintendo Zones Coming ...:

They couldn't just make it five and not have you miss 2 relay tags for every second one you use to fill your plaza? Still, I'm definitely grateful because relay tags are a nice little bonus for the commute home, not to mention trips to Nintendo Zone locations.

SurferClock commented on Iwata Asks Connects With The Team Behind Stree...:

Make sure if you're going into a place you haven't in a while that has a Nintendo Zone, to go into the Browser and see if there's an initial page where you have to accept terms and conditions in order to connect. I did that, and haven't experienced any issues since!

SurferClock commented on StreetPass Relay Issues Reported in North America:

@Jimbolicious This article helped immensely! I went to McDonald's this morning, and 2 minutes went by without the tag. I then went to the Internet Browser, accepted and connected until I was to the "You Are Now Connected" screen, closed the 3DS, and waited. Sure enough, 2 minutes later, I got relay tags for Crosswords Plus, NSMB2, AC:NL, and StreetPass Mii Plaza all at once!

SurferClock commented on StreetPass Relay Issues Reported in North America:

I was able to get a bunch of tags in the first 2-3 weeks, but now it seems like it's happening less and less. For those reporting that it doesn't work, you usually have to be at a location anywhere from 2-4 minutes before the relay tag happens.

SurferClock commented on Sonic Generations Hitting The North American 3...:

Huzzah! I finally get a chance to make use of the Save Data Transfer Tool! Not sure I really want to buy a digital copy Sonic Generations for too steep a price considering I don't get a whole lotta use out of it, but it'll be nice to be able to keep around one of the titles I'm still StreetPassing with, and to be able to return the cartridge to free up that space on the back of my 3DS.
