Um, well, there's this?

I guess the gist of it is that, if you log in to a wifi hotspot, the 3DS will mark it on the Nintendo Street Pass server. I guess you'll get streetpass hits for some (or all?) of the people who have been there for some period, and people can get streetpass hits from you the same way.

Dunno how long that data is kept. Visit to visit, a few days, etc. If you frequent any places that have free wifi, it might get you hits.

Bump.

Amazon will have a buy 2, get 1 on PS4 games tomorrow from noon until 4PM ET, while supplies last. Target is also doing a buy 2, get 1 starting tomorrow, on games across most platforms (including PS4). No end date specified for Target.

Radio Shack is selling PS Vitas for 159.99 which is a forty dollar savings. I'm not sure how long the sale is for, but I'm tempted to pick one up at that price.

Important note about the target sale is that you can use it for pre-orders. So you can get a mix of PS4 games and current gen, if you want, unlike Amazon.

I'm trying to use it to nab Ocarina of Time, A Link Between Worlds, and another (probably the Professor Layton game). But I can't find OOT in stock in stores, and it's not available online. Smiley: glare

Oh, I didn't realize the Target one was online, too. I had seen the flyer posted on Reddit, and assumed it was in-store only. I'll probably get A Link Between Worlds, then. I was just going to get a third PS4 game and sell it on eBay.

I wonder if I can order OoT in store and take advantage of the deal...

Though I can't decide if I'd want the third to be Professor Layton, Tales of the Abyss, Kingdom Hearts, or Animal Crossing...

Beyond Two Souls is $35 on Amazon.

Also, voucher redemption is down. Between the Plus deal and the EU PS4 launch, their servers are too overloaded.

It's $15 in Target, if you want the physical copy.

Though it's also $20 standard, now, IIRC.

Toys R Us has buy one get one 40% off. Works on XBone/PS4 games, if anyone has one. Their selection of older stuff is kinda lacking, though.

Target has Tomb Raider for $15.

Today only, Xbox 360:

Spelunky: $3.74
Terraria: $4.94
Fez: $2.49

I know most people on here probably have these already on Steam, but if not and you have a 360, that's a lot of good gaming for not a lot of money.

I played for about 45 minutes last night and got my *** handed to me in the first battle. Not sure what I did wrong but I was being one shotted by spells.

Apparently you can unlock seven different bonuses for the full release by playing through the Demo. First bonus was an item pack (1x antidote, 1x echo drop, 1x something else). I'm imagining they are all going to be like that, some real basic items, maybe some decent starting equipment.

It also seems to have a town you build as you progress using those StreetPass hits to gather townsfolk to build it faster. Interesting, though that just means I'll have to drive into town with my system on standby and spend 10-15 minutes driving up and down all the side streets to get people.

I will have to play again tonight and try not to die in my first battle. I only switched one character to a job, probably should switch them all.

Edit:
And apparently the censorship is mostly just "No more Bikinis and Belt Strap only costumes, now they are wearing hot pants and they have clothes on under the belt straps". Along with characters going form 14-16 years old to 18-20 years old.

Interesting. Now I just have to decide how I want to do it. Don't think I want to cycle the MAC on my router or laptop, but maybe I can just grab a second cheapo router and set it up in my house as my own personal StreetPass maker.

I strongly recommend the dd-wrt method, and that you should check the website first to make sure that the router you buy is compatible with the firmware.

I tried it out on my laptop, but I can't get MACshift to work. It acts like it does, but it never changes the MAC Address. I tried updating the driver for my WiFi Miniport thing, but that didn't help. Everything works, and I can share my network connection across the new virtual hosted network. I just can't spoof the MAC address. Not sure why

Apparently Norende city progress is saved automatically outside of your main game save file. So some events in game that add to your Norende can be exploited to add over and over and over by just going to the save guy and reloading to title.

Not sure if the same exploit will exist in the full game, but it does make it easier to get some of the bonuses and transfers to the real game in the limited time/uses of the Demo.

By the way, I hate that the 3DS limits the number of uses on a demo.

Indeed, but I've gotten by that by not closing the game yet >_>. It has made my Norende progress painfully slow though Smiley: frown.

Amazon has two Netgear WIFI Routers for 70% off today. Just check if the cheap one is dd-wrt compatible.

Edit: Scratch that, the cheap one is actually just a WIFI extender. The R7000 is dd-wrt compatible if you don't mind paying $170.

For people like us, who dont get any streetpass data.. There is also the Nintendo Zone option.

"Head to any Nintendo Zone location to use a StreetPass Relay Point and you’ll get StreetPass Mii Plaza data from the last six visitors to visit that location. It’s a great way to connect with other StreetPass users—even if you don’t have the chance to meet in person."


It's not going to get you as much data as the other method, but it's still nice if you at least make a few trips to a larger city (for me, I can go 30 miles one direction, but if I go 60 miles to Fargo, there are multiple McDonalds that offer this service).

Downside is that sometimes people might not bring their 3DS to that location often, you could show up that day and get nothing. Home Depots are also Nintendo Zone locations if you want to try there as well.
