It is a DS game and only supports the WEP security setting on the router. 3DS can support WPA2 but not for DS games. You would have to setup your router to work with the WEP security. You would then be able to play all games on your 3DS online. I have the same issue. Just have not got around to it yet.

this. DS games still requiring a WEP connection is a known issue that became a problem when the DSi hit, as the DSi can handle more advanced security settings than the DS could. if you have a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connector, you don't have to worry about it though :3

@TeeJay: years ago I heard that if you were to stop them when you see them doing that and ask them for a plastic-wrapped new copy, they would give it to you. if i were you, i'd try that next time you see it happening, and if they refuse, try taking your business elsewhere. In my area, you can usually get new games at Wal-Mart for two or three bucks less than GameStop anyway (the only problem is finding them at W*M, lol; their selection is somewhat limited).

@cheetahman: i know if the game is in the display case as opposed to having a case out on the shelves, they won't give you one, not even one of their little generic plastic cases. when they started purging their GBA games from the display cases, they started loading DS/3DS game carts into it, so that's probably where that came from. If you can find the case on the floor for a used game, they'll just pop the game into it and let you have it when you purchase it.

also, i know Oddy brought up the whole 'opened games' argument going against GS, but i'd say that within the past two or three years, i've never had a problem with them giving me a shrink-wrapped game right off the bat when i bought new. before that, yes, i remember plenty of times where they'd give me an opened case, pop the game inside, and then slap a sticker over the opening and call it 'new', but i haven't had that happen to me in a long time now. :3

The last big Cave Story WiiWare (not DSiWare) thread was here. You're welcome to revive it if you want, but it's not really all that recent, so feel free to create another thread if you prefer.

As for a proper search function, Ant's working on it; all we can do is thank you for your continued patience. Until he's got it up and running, what tealovertoma said works just fine — in fact, I use it daily to find things at Nintendo Life. :3

I've seen people take it both ways. I don't think it matters if you want to discuss non-Nintendo consoles in the Retro section (provided they're actually 'retro', y'know; IMO if it's still supported now, it's not 'retro' thus the PS2 would not qualify as such) but if you're overly worried, you can post in the Other Gaming section if you like. it's up to you :3

it's a QR code. you need a QR code reader (if one didn't come pre-installed on your phone, you'll need to download one from your phone's app store). Same kind of thing as the QR codes for the 3DS, they're everywhere now.

i had hoped it would be true, but it isn't — the few games I've played on my 3DS all suffered the same framerate issues and occasional graphical quirks as they did back on my Lite. The same games didn't play better on my DSi, either, so i probably should've known, lol. :3

This brings up something i've been thinking about lately — would it be possible to have an option to not load embedded YouTube videos? I know LiveJournal does this thing where they show a placeholder that you can click of your own accord if you're that interested in seeing what a user wanted to show you, but a bare link would work too IMO... saves loading time for users on slower connections or older computers.

Why do you even bother making such a remark? You've been here long enough to know he's not serious most of the time, and even if he was, wouldn't it be simpler to just ignore him?

You don't have to play with him, you don't have to include him, and you don't even have to like him, but until he's done something here at NL or with you guys in-game that's shady other than the fact that he signed up for an account shortly after another user was excommunicated (so to speak, lol the church of GE), I will be deleting/editing out any more insults leveled toward him. I can't see that smoove has done anything to deserve that kind of treatment yet (though cooldude certainly has, and i've been waiting all week for something like that to happen to be honest, lol). :/
