If/when there is 3DSWare (or whatever they wind up deciding to officially call downloadable games specifically made for the 3DS), it will be released on the eShop. The two terms are not interchangeable :3

how do you 'test' for amnesia? i'd be interested in how they would prove to a jury beyond all reasonable doubt that such a notorious person actually had amnesia.

that said, honest-to-god amnesia or no, there's always the chance they would remember who they were down the line and start making trouble again, so I think it'd make more sense to put them into some kind of maximum security facility possibly receiving appropriate care and/or rehabilitation until such time as they were able to remember who they were and be put to trial, and if they never could? they'd never get out, so it'd be like a life sentence anyway.

Hold down the power button until it finally shuts off.

Alternatively (provided your 3DS isn't actually frozen...?), you can either close the 3DS and reopen it or press the home button to go back to the main menu.

SAGA's getting a Wii disc release too?!

from http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/26724 :

In addition to combining the six original games in one package, the Wii disc version will have a number of extra features, some not even found in the 3DS version (which will, to be fair, include 3D effects, portability, and touch screen controls for some of the games). The console compilation will have an art gallery, video gallery, and audio gallery, plus a special text message/commentary from creator Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games on each of the titles. More importantly, there will be new difficulty levels for each game. The biggest addition is a set of 120 new challenge levels, made up of 20 for each of the six games in the set. These will demand absolute perfection from the player, but they are kept short (possibly very short) to avoid frustration.

wtf, Gaijin, i love you guys to bits (ha, bits) but i don't want to have to buy these games for a third time over. gdi i want that text message/commentary soooooooo bad, though... sigh.

you have to actually use the tool from the DSi itself (after updating, go into the DSi Shop and download the tool — it's in with the 'Free' games). the 3DS is just there to receive the game, if that makes any sense.

this is the kind of thinking Nintendo is desperate to change at the moment. as long as they keep pumping out the first-party titles i crave as well as pushing these 3rd party titles, more power to 'em, i say :3

The DSi is a US unit and the 3DS is European but I wouldn't think that was the problem.

the DSi and 3DS both are region-locked. Each is searching for a same-region system with which to connect, and since they can't find one in the area, it just goes on and on and on. Sorry to disappoint.

When they were asked after the presentation if the Wii U could handle Battlefield 3, the question was completely avoided. Yes, this could be a quick diversion to keep from leaking information, but the fact that the either it, or Modern Warfare 3 weren't announced for Wii U as equal titles to PS3/360 during the conference makes me think that the system isn't on par with what these two consoles are starting to currently produce.

it's just too early to judge IMO — in fact, they didn't look like they were really ready to be presenting it at all. they showed a lot of ideas regarding what the hardware itself was capable of, they ran through a reel of developer reactions and then showed some of the 3rd party games being developed for it, but note that nothing was playable on the floor but a few demos that Reggie stressed repeatedly were just demos, not actual games in production. What they showed was interesting (the HD graphics were very nice!), but that's about it for me at the moment tbqh.

Slapshot wrote:

... but with Nintendo's power and them seeming very serious about regaining their hardcore audience, they didn't show anything to really back that statement up.

you're absolutely right. on top of that, one of Nintendo's major obstacles has always been their online service, and they showed absolutely nothing regarding U's online features/capabilities aside from the video chat thing — it's another thing that's got me thinking it's way too early to expect anything solid, because they're probably still hashing all that stuff out. with them not even deigning to show off anything but the tablet controller, i wouldn't be surprised to see some major revisions announced before U finally winds up with a release date, lol.
