deKay commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (Europe):

I bought OlliOlli for about £1.50 on PSN a few weeks ago, and much as I'd prefer it on a Nintendo console, it's so buggy and broken on both my Vita and PS3 that I'm wary of spending any more money on it.

Also, OlliOlli 2 is out this week on other consoles, so it's a bit old hat now anyway.

deKay commented on Pokémon Shuffle Hits One Million Downloads:

For what it's worth, I used to play a lot of iOS games. Many morphed into F2P with IAPs, and so I simply stopped playing. Eventually, 95% of the games on the App Store were either plastered full of adverts, or impossible to play without IAPs, so I gave up playing iOS games completely.

If Pokemon Shuffle was £5 and no IAPs, I'd buy it. But as it is, I'm not paying a penny.

@PlywoodStick I am genuinely amazed anyone uses the music app :) I've hundreds of photos too, but I've plenty of space on the card (and due to the low resolution they're minutes anyway) so I just leave them on.

Anyway, if you think that's bad, you never have managed with the Nokia N-Gage!

@Crimson_Ridley If she has a New 3DS or New 3DS XL, then you can do a system transfer from her machine to your new one, then wait a number of days (I think it's 14, but not sure) before it will allow you to transfer it back to hers complete with the game. If she has a "not New" 3DS/XL then you can't do this as you can't do a system transfer from the New 3DS to the not-New 3DS.

@TossedLlama I predict even more complaining that the new 3DS they bought isn't a New 3DS, and trying to complain to the hapless staff in Game that there's a difference between a "new 3DS" and a "New 3DS". Stupid naming. In 10 years time it'll still be called "New 3DS" even though it'll have been superseded at least twice by then.

@JaxonH The data doesn't get deleted - the 3DS just creates a new folder for it but doesn't move it in there. I don't know why it does this, but it does. Some of the data is something you might never notice - some street passes, or extra data for a game you no longer play, but plenty of people HAVE noticed, and merging the folders fixes it.

@Nicolai Depends on the speed of your card, speed of your wireless, speed of your internet connection, and how many files you have (and how big they are). I saw someone on Twitter transfer a nearly full 8GB card and it took more than 6 hours. Also, if you have some DSiWare titles, they transfer separately and seem to take longer (despite being generally smaller).

@JaxonH Sorry to disagree, but I disagree. What you're saying is logically true, but isn't actually the case. I have first hand experience (several times over) and have helped hundreds (literally) of people recover missing data by re-doing the SD transfer but using the initialise then merge folders method.

A word of warning about this guide, specifically this bit:

"Now connect your micro-SDHC card to the computer and simply copy/paste/move that former SD card content onto it."

Absolutely do NOT just do this. You have to initialise the new card on your 3DS first, then merge some of the folders from the old one with some on the new one (and they're specific folders - so be careful).

If you don't, and the official Nintendo guide doesn't do this step either, you may find data goes missing. Stuff like some game "extra" data, photos, streetpasses, progress in Streetpass Quest, some game saves, some downloaded content, etc.

I still haven't finished the stuff that came with the main game in Hyrule Warriors (I'm only 106 hours in) let alone the already-released DLC. But since I got the "season pass" (ergh at that term), I'll end up with them all anyway.

Good job it's the best game ever.

Axelay, Afterburner II and Wii U Adventure Time for me. Yes, I know AT isn't great, but it's a bargain at that price so worth a punt I think.

Runner 2, Guacamelee! and SteamWorld Dig are bargains - if you've not got them yet I thoroughly recommend downloading them this week!
