@JogurtTheYogurt: It's nothing personal — when I cleaned out the unhelpful replies, yours and others' that were in reply or discussing them had to go as well.

If we could get back to the topic at hand, I'm sure Treverend would appreciate it. :3

did you subscribe for digital, physical, or both? If digital, that version has already been released and you should've gotten an e-mail — if you didn't (or if you accidentally deleted it), they've asked on their facebook for people to get in touch at subscriptions@nintendoforcemagazine.com to have it re-sent to you. if it's physical, i believe the latest word was 'soon' on the 22nd, as it had just hit the printers. I know I haven't received mine yet, but i hope to see it soon :3

that said, our main Nintendo Force thread can be found here if you'd like to discuss the magazine with everyone else. Enjoy! :3

@CapnPancakes: Luck might still be okay for the avatar if you wanted to be a General... just don't choose Skill, Speed, or Strength as your flaw, and be sure to go Grandmaster to pick up Ignis. it's still gonna help you out at least a little in strength-based classes, and there's so many classes to choose from you might change your mind about staying a General anyway :3

idk, i guess when you get down to the brass tacks of building the 'perfect' team, this kind of thing becomes more important, but for a first playthrough it's not really anything to stress over IMO. just enjoy the game the first time around, and mess around with this stuff later :3

Come on now, guys, if you're going to reply to this thread, please try to be helpful.

@Treverend: I've renamed this thread so that you can use it every time you have a question or a worry about your Wii U instead of creating thread after thread after thread to do so. There's not much I can say that will be helpful except to contact Nintendo, make sure to update your Wii U to the latest software release, and hope that things go well since you've had such terrible luck with your Wii Us so far.

I would suggest, though, that if you wind up with another replacement Wii U and it still doesn't work right, that with so many other people around who haven't had such extreme problems with theirs, perhaps the environment in your home is partially to blame? maybe other people can share what their Wii U setups look like so that you can model your own after theirs? after all, one person's 'babying' is another person's 'oh my god what are you dooooooing D: D: D:' :3

@Ihsoy: it depends on what difficulty you're playing, really. I'm tempted to say that the 'flaw' and 'asset' thing don't really matter much except maybe in the very beginning when it's harder to get stat-boosting items tbh. either way, you can't go wrong with Luck as an asset (especially later on when you start picking up skills based on your Luck stat), but I went with Speed for mine since i really, really like hitting twice (or 4x) and I wanted to be able to do so as early and as much as possible :3

I'm going to go with this. Thank you for sharing some of your favorite images with us, but this really isn't the place to be drooling over 'hotties' as it were. I'm sure everyone is more than capable of googling up their own imagery along those lines if that's what they're in the mood to look at.

@iphys: you don't have to greet the person's Mii in your plaza before another streetpass attempt is made. you may have to open up the 3DS and play it or something, but you don't have to greet the person's Mii at all — there have been times i've gone into the Mii Plaza to find that my husband's Mii has tagged me some godawful crazy amount of times, lol, just because i hardly ever go in there. you'll still only get one puzzle piece from them and have them only once in Find Mii/FMII, though, no matter how many times they've streetpassed you before you greet them, so if you're going for puzzle pieces and making progress through Find Mii you definitely want to use them every time you notice they've streetpassed you :3

@Tech101: I think i've just hit the fourth or fifth mission, i can't remember off top of my head. i just think if maybe the professor's text ran on the bottom screen or something without interrupting my exploration, i'd get the info i needed without the big fat HALT in gameplay, y'know? i never did play the original, so maybe i'm not getting the nostalgia working for me on it, i guess. :/

@Tech101: I just got an e-mail telling me to check 'em since he tweaked it again, so it looks like they're fixed now on my phone's end. glad to hear it's working on yours too now :3

anyway, it is definitely the professor ticking me off, because everything stops and you have to see what he wants, and i just want to explore, y'know?

@Tech101: Ant switched up the 'edit, quote, report' links today to display on mouseover, the way they do on the mainsite. they were a bit buggy in firefox this morning and he's fixed that, and I've let him know that they're still not displaying right on the phone, so hopefully he'll have it all hammered out for us soon.

as for LM2... i was so ready to love this game, and i'm just not feeling it. the professor is really starting to tick me off, all his interruptions are really obnoxious when i'm just going around and exploring and stuff. i'll keep going with it for a couple more missions at least, but if it doesn't start capturing me soon i'm probably just gonna go back to FE:A. :(

@Barbiegurl777: my husband and I generally streetpass one another about twice a day on average. Also, the highest Mii level you can pick up via streetpassing is 7, you'll just keep streetpassing one another as level 7s from then on.

be careful — 3DS to 3DS transfers are all-or-nothing. You can't pick and choose which 3DS titles to transfer between two 3DS systems, so if you know you want the downloaded game on one of the two 3DSes but still want two separate systems (one for you, one for her), just put it on the one you wanted to have it wind up on eventually., not the one you're wanting to transfer it from. if that makes any sense :3

come on now, guys — what if you decide to pick up an XL later on that comes with a free download of something you'd already purchased before, and you wouldn't mind reselling the cartridge version but don't want to lose your saves. or how about if you qualified for some sort of promotion, but the only games they were giving for free were games you'd already purchased cartridges for. wouldn't you like to have the option to have your main save file(s) available on the go?

i think i said in another thread that i'm already considering purchasing a digital copy of Code of Princess (if it's available in the NA eShop) and copying over my own save information since my husband wants to play it but I don't want to lose my own progress — it's an expensive option, but Atlus games tend to be rare anyway so i'd probably be paying full price for a second copy of the game anyway, and this way i get to keep my collected weapons and stats that i worked so hard for. what I'm wondering is whether it's an all-or-nothing sort of thing (if a game has three save slots, can you only transfer all three at once, or can you pick and choose?), whether it completely rewrites the saves on the downloadable version or you can back those up on your computer and just recopy over the version on your SD card as you please), and also whether it goes both ways (where you could pass on your saves to a little brother or something who has the cartridge and you have the downloaded version, for example). has anyone tried it yet? or does anyone know?

all i know is that master seals are available for purchase before second seals, but be sure to check out every single store that has an Anna — sometimes they'll have a Seal on offer that you can snap up in a pinch. Also go through people's inventory if you streetpass 'em before hopping into a fight — i usually keep Seals and some stat-boosting items on my streetpass team so that my husband can get them from me. :3
