How do you have Tales of the Abyss? Did you get the Japanese version?
No, it's the PAL version. It came out here in November last year. Must be due to the fact the original PS2 game didn't get a PAL release.
Plus I wouldn't bother with 3DS imports yet. Least not until someone finds a way to bypass the region lockout for 3DS games.

This...is bad.
I have 99 Friends and swapnoting is near to impossible because i get so many notes.
Which is okay, because they are all so awesome and cute but i want to reply to all of them but i can't
because the demand for new ones are so harsch and fast than i don't even have time to read the new ones.
So basically i have like 45 unopened notes and even more new replies to former notes.
I just hope any of you don't experience this, i like to draw but it takes time <3

Anyways, i am hyped for Paper Mario 3ds, Animal Crossing 3ds, Monster Hunter Tri G and Super Smash Universe.
I also know that it's gonna take a lot of time before they ever get released (if even localized).
i wanted to play Devil Survivor 3ds but they never get around Europe because lolz Regionlock.

Nevertheless, i want a recommendation to games i could buy from 3shop. Games you enjoyed the most.
i am quite blank, only having the ambassador games and Link's Awakening.
i heard that Mighty Switch Force games would be intresting, many other users have implied they liked Pushnote more.
I am quite lost in thought. Well, in the end, just let me finish Minish Cap, hoho

My only gripe is that the names for the download titles are inconsistent.

PAL : Nintendo Letter Box
NTSC : Swapnote

PAL : Pullblox
NTSC : Pushmo

seriously, wtf :/

I hope that Paper Mario 3DS will be just as good (if not, better) than TTYD. As far as Super Smash Universe:

1) I wonder how it'll be able to connect with the Wii U.
2) I wonder what differences it'll have with the Wii U's version.
3) Brb, no-lifing the game, especially over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Curious about pushmo... I have the NTSC one and in the game they actually refer to the puzzles as pushmos. Is that name changed in the PAL version?
mm201
3DS doesn't use NTSC or PAL. :?
Soaprman
why you gotta be so technical dog??? sheeeeesh
mm201
Because that misunderstanding vindicates them for using region locking. They get away claiming it to be a format incompatibility instead of "if (Cartridge.Region != ThreeDS.Region) throw new FuckOffException();" which it is.

They also like to claim it's related to parental controls or piracy, which is just bullshit.
Rantai
And here I thought it was all about the money/prices.
mm201
It's a plain mistake they think will make them more money but they're wrong.
Or third parties (guilty of the above mistake) are forcing them. Some combination of the two probably. It's the same flawed reasoning that applies to region locking in general.
Rantai
I read they do (in relation to pricing) it to 'protect' local businesses from imports.

Regardless, it still sucks.
mm201
You mean, the same local businesses who don't make foreign releases, and could multiply their sales by allowing imports?
Rantai
Yeah, those guys.

Silly people.

I will add you soon ^^
My games:

[Edit:] I will give my thoughts on my games too ^^ just for fun and just my opinion
TLoZ: Ocarina of time 3D : Still a very awesome game but if you already played the original you should buy it with 90% of having fun with ... idk everything is still great but i played the original so often i just rushed through the game.
Starfox 64 3D : Oh boy this game has the best 3D effect next to Super mario 3D land ... only bad thing: can't change audio to lylat language nor to any other unless your changing the 3DS itself. But still i love . DO A BARREL ROLL!
Super Mario 3D Land: First thought it was decent. 3D effect is very good but it was to easy and the levels aren't that memorable for me maybe because i hoped it is better than my fav. Super Mario 64. But the length of getting 100% and most epic Final Bossfights in any Mario for me make this a very good game :D
Mario Kart 7: Nice as always. Especially the online races are awesome and there is nothing better than racing against other people in the osu! community ;) Only bad thing: Wuhu Mountain (my german version back to english translation ^^) glitch and not that much things to unlock ... also no mission mode like MK:DS
Sonic Generations: This Game is hard. I can't play with 3D effect because it is so fast i get headache. But it is really fun and challenging

games i may buy soon:
DoA Dimensions
RE Revelations
MGS Snake eater 3D
Kid Icarus Uprising

DoA dimensions is good, to the extent of my experience with it.

Slightly incomprehensible story though. Not too bad but it doesn't flow well.

added you bomber, but it seems you havn't added me yet x)

you bought all Nintendo games except the blue-hedgehog xD. I bought ZeldaOOT3D too but just aimed to the free soundtrackCD, so didn't play it at all (of course played the original in N64). also I'm hesitating whether to get Starfox or Gundam cuz I wanna play an action game.
here's games I'm owning now, my Mario 3D Land was rob'd by my fucking brother when the 1st day I bought and bring it home!!! :x

and thx to blazevoir/Mianki/Rantai for adding me, lets MK7!

Well i don't know what Gundam is but I love Starfox as much as on the N64 (my friend got it so i only could play it sometimes when i was at his place ^^)
as i said i think the 3D effect is really good :D and i can recommend it to all highscore hunters. But as much as i love the gameplay there are 2 things that sucks about SF64 3D :(
1. No online mode even though playing with friends (if my friends would even have a 3DS) or against CPU is cool . CPU will kill you :D
2. No language option ... I don't wanna change the 3DS system to get the english version D: and no lylat language :(

Don't worry i will add you soon :D but you have to promise me to spam me on swapnote ^^

I'd be more than happy to play MK7 with you, but I have no idea when you get on :? I also don't like leaving my 3DS on (even in Sleep Mode) or leaving it on the charger (500 charges = less battery life, and I've pretty much been charging it every week).

Ok i am not atk1992 but i also say my time if it helps you ... ok it helps me too ;) i wanna play MK7 with you guys :D
best chance for me Friday 8pm - 3am and saturday 6,7 pm - 3am that is all GMT + 1 so idk you have to calculate this for yourself since i don't know the time period of you guys but for americans i guess there are at least 6h difference. :(
NaomiMinette
I'm GMT -6, so you're 7 hours ahead of me, bomber.

Converting that, you'd be available at:

- Friday 1 PM - 8 PM
- Saturday 11 AM, 12 PM - 8 PM

for me, anyway, which is fine since I should be on around those times :)
atk1992
GMT +8 here, totally I‘m free after 17 PM on weekdays and all the time on weekends (not sure when I get up though :oops:) ,but there isn't wifi connection on THUs and SUNs.
just hit me up in-game or at #Videogames on IRC whenever I'm online! before that let's make friends mutual in osu, I've added you bomber & Blazevoir. :oops:


btw I made a table on Google Docs and have color'd bomber's time there. convert your time to GMT+0 and color it with your schedule Blazevoir xD.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... zhMYlBNZ1E
Also for anyone here who wanna join our MK7-community :)
Soaprman
Alright, I went ahead and added myself. There will be exceptions from time to time... the midnight to 4am block might vary in size a bit and I am occasionally available on Friday.
jjrocks
Went ahead and added myself to that doc, also if I forgot to add you as a friend, give me heads up.
Rantai
Just added mine too.

Just a giant block.

Though if my sleep relapses, all times would be shifted by about 8 hours.
jericho2442
might as well add my code to this, dunno why i never did before xD

5241-1893-3184

games ive got is SF4 DOA Ridge racer and Mario kart, so yea o/
NaomiMinette
The doc confuses me... I can't pick both an AM and PM time...

My (new) available times are:

* Monday - Friday: 6:00 PM (18:00) to 2:00 AM CST (GMT-6)
* Saturday & Sunday: 3:00 PM (18:00) to 2:00 AM CST (GMT-6)

Btw jericho (and everyone else who have MK7), post/visit here, too :)
Anonymus_old

Hey I have question. If I have ntsc 3DS(from USA) but I use it in PAL region(Poland) then I won't have problem with connecting it to wi-fi etc.? I just need ntsc games to run them, other things work fine?

And to answer your question, it connects to the same internet, so no, there are no problems using a 3DS from a different region.
