^ what FishieFish said, the game download (and any others the seller may have purchased, or Ambassador titles if it's an Ambassador 3DS) is tied to the eShop account on that 3DS, nothing else. It's why you don't want to trade in a 3DS against an XL or something without having done a System Transfer first, you'll lose anything you've downloaded or purchased via eShop. You may want to go ahead and format the 3DS and SD card (i think you can generate a new FC too that way? it's been a while since i've read the instruction manual lol, but i know i'd feel less weird about it if i wasn't using someone else's FC as my own haha) and then just re-download the game(s) fresh; i know that's what I'd do if I was in your shoes. :3

What you DON'T want to do is delete your eShop account. Formatting your system and deleting your eShop account are two entirely different things, so don't worry about the format messing with your ability to re-download anything that came pre-installed or that had been purchased by the seller. DO NOT delete the eShop account, and you'll be fine :3

@Obito_Tennyson: as @Klimbatize has explained, the lag is farther into the game — it's awful from the level 3 stages in RUNNER, and Control in CORE is absolutely unplayable. I even had the music cut out entirely a couple times in Control the last time I tried it, there were bad, bad desyncing problems, and at no time was i attempting to play with the 3D on. I also keep brightness at around medium level on my 3DS to help save battery, so no, i didn't have that up all the way as you suggest, nor did I bother having the wireless on (again, to save battery while playing my 3DS at work). I believe I had the original 2gb SD card in at the time, but why that would be a factor while playing a cartridge is beyond me (and if it is, shame on them still because no other cartridge I've put into my 3DS has lagged like this, sorry).

If you truly landed yourself a copy of SAGA in some way, shape, or form that does not lag at all, I congratulate you on having had the perfect SAGA experience the rest of us can only dream of at this point in time. Your experience does not negate ours, however, and furthermore i suspect you haven't had the chance to reach the laggy parts we're complaining about anyway. Congratulations on your smooth-butt experience (so far?).

@CaptainCharlie: I'm not sure what you're talking about; i was unaware that COMPLETE was released for PC. I was referring to the Wii version. :3

If you're deciding between getting the WiiWare versions and picking up a copy of Complete for your Wii or Wii U, go for Complete — it's got all the games on one disc, as well as all the extra challenge stuff :3

I can only hope for some sort of response from the dev team...but that's a long shot.

idk about you, but i'm not holding my breath on it. they've been too focused on other stuff for the past idk-how-long-SAGA's-been-out to be bothered with fixing SAGA, and that's really killed a lot of the GG magic for me because my two favorite games in the series (CORE and RUNNER) are really screwed up in this.

my only hope is that people completely unfamiliar with the Bit.Trip series don't pick up SAGA and think this version of these games is how they've always been and thus get turned off on them, because COMPLETE and the WiiWare versions play just as intended and the series itself is excellent. I think it's a damn shame they're allowing SAGA to continue on in the eShop like this and even putting it on sale without either fixing it or at least letting us know that fixes are being worked on, or even letting people know that they're throwing their $5 at a game that won't play right. It just stinks of misrepresentation and shadiness. A broken game is a broken game no matter how cheaply you price it.

waitaminute... never mind. i saw that '16' part of your original post and thought you were talking about your peers, not younger people on your FB. sorry, my former comment was from the viewpoint of someone who thought you were 16 and still in high school, so we can ignore that now. (any other 16-year-old high schoolers can freely take that advice, though! i had a crap job at 16 and don't regret it a bit; looking back on it makes me appreciate what i have now :3)

consider this my real reply to you, @lilman390: that 16-year-old kid working at Popeyes' is already more a man than someone who does nothing but sit around and play video games and watch TV. Gainful employment teaches responsibility and the value of hard work. I wouldn't look down on people earning minimum wage if I were you; chances are that's what you're going to be looking at yourself as soon as you graduate. If I had a dime for all the college grads I know who are now working in jobs nowhere near their field of study that they had to work their way up from the bottom rung, I'd be a millionaire.

I am in full agreement with @Retrowire. If you want a job, get one; there's a good chance it'll do wonders for your life perhaps not so much in terms of money, but in valuable real-world experience, goal-setting and fulfillment, working with others as a team, etc. and so forth. Don't get a job thinking it's gonna be fun and games, because it's work. That's why they call it 'work'. Get a job to better yourself as a person and to gain life experience.

If you don't want to get a job, then don't. Continue playing your video games, concentrate hard on your schoolwork and get excellent grades, and good luck when you're done with higher education and are dumped into the real world — and I mean that genuinely, with all my heart. Those student loans don't repay themselves, and there's a good chance you'll wind up working beneath your buddy at Popeyes' for at least a while before you find anything to do within your field of study. It's rough being in your mid-twenties and having to shop around with your resume with nothing but academic stuff on it. I've watched it happen to good friends of mine.

... says the person who's asking other people for their opinions regarding whether or not to get a job? you're sending very mixed messages... either you want a job but need help finding one — and that's something you should talk to your parents or legal guardians about, since they'll be the ones having to help arrange transportation and of course they'll want to know where you're going every day after school ;) — or you aren't going to bother anyway and anything we say will be pointless. :/

@Phil: Regarding Jurassic Bark, Luck of the Fryrish, and Sting, the deaths (or near-deaths as the case may be) and the elaborate focus on them kinda helped to jab that knife into my heart. It was all A-plot material. Granted, the focus was a bit indirect in the former two, but Sting directly revolved around a death, so... yeah. As for Time Keeps on Slipping, no one died, and we didn't even really get to see Fry struggle to do whatever it was he did to win Leela's heart, just the aftermath and his subsequent attempts to figure out the puzzle. It definitely sucked for Fry in the end, but there is/was still hope for his relationship with Leela after that point, and plus that was all was more an accompaniment to the A-plot in that episode.

To be honest, I think I felt more emotion for Fry in Parasites Lost than i did in Time Keeps on Slipping, and that's not really saying much — my sadness for him is when he finds out that Leela only loves him for what he's become and not for who he is. That's a terrible sort of realization to have to come to.

I do usually tear up a bit for Fry in The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings, though. All that work for nothing, everyone else storms out, and still Leela wants to hear how it ended.
