Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
I'd read that somewhere. Didn't the update also include an update to the eShop?

What do you think the odds are for the remaining Ambassador games arriving around that time?

Well they almost don't have a choice but to come out around that time cause they said they'd all be out by the end of the year haha.

I don't mind the delay too much. I'd rather get a functional update plus it's not really something I'm looking forward to that much. The extra Mii Plaza content is nice but unless it's entirely functional without StreetPasses, I won't be able to use it.

Oh well, one more week. I'm gonna use the 3D video recording A LOT over the holidays, it will be glorious.

Does the 3DS data transfer include friend lists and Activity Log data?

So we got to wait a week more for 3D Penis Messaging and 3D Penis Video, eh? Oh well, we can wait.

I wonder if they'll keep those names though.

I think it's just 3DS Software. If it had, it would have made my transition a lot less painful...

Oh for fuck's sake. They'd better add that functionality before the inevitable "3DSiLiteSPDualAnalogXL" comes out. The friend list stuff I could probably live with but I'm much more attached to my Activity Log data than I ever would have guessed.

No big. I didn't even realize they were that close.

Tell me about it. When I lost my Activity Log, Friend List and Mii Plaza stuff, I was pretty miffed. Still haven't come close to recovering all of that, especially the Activity Log.

I wonder if there's a homebrew solution to that yet. I'm not up on my 3DS homebrew news at all. Anyone know what's up with the scene?

Oh shit, I forgot about my precious MiiPlaza stuff! God damn it.

Whoa, hang on. Let's not freak out yet. The system transfer that's available RIGHT NOW doesn't do that, but the update coming on December 8th may change that. Fact of the matter is, no one really knows what the entire firmware updates will be. It's only a little over a week away - we'll know for sure soon enough.


No idea.
