Two discussion points from me:

I love the 3DS relay system- when it actually works. I have confirmed that it works in two locations in my town: a McDonalds and the local Starbucks. But there are several other locations, another McDonalds, an AT&T store, a Best Buy to name a few, where they should have the relay system and they don’t. Do the businesses themselves need to upgrade their own computer/internet systems to make them compatible with Nintendo? I hope they do get up and running; the Nintendo upgrade promises that you will collect street passes for the last SIX people and that will help immensely. ( I live in a smallish town and I must grow rare flowers….LOL)*

Yes, I am a dork.

I also ran out and bought a copy of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl. I have already reached Stratum Two in the story mode. I strongly recommend this game. It is a game divided into separate two parts. One part is a full 3D remake of the original 2007 Etrian Odyssey video game. I played the original 2007 game and I can tell you that they rebuilt the maps, graphics, and skill trees in this new version. You can also start the game with the Ronin and Hexer classes too instead of waiting halfway through the game.

The new content is the Story Mode where you are given five pre-made characters and have to help them discover the secrets of the Etrian Labyrinth and the mystery of Frederica’s lost memories. Also, Raquna the Protector is Canadian who drinks lots of beer. Which seems to be a big deal to some of the people on the internet for some reason. There is a new class, spear wielding Highlanders, and a grimoire stone skill system, which I haven’t got the hang of yet. I difficulty of the game is adjustable, so if you have never played an Etrian Odyssey game yet, this is a good game to start with. Also, being able to adjust the difficulty is good for busy people who do not have a lot of time to spare level grinding.


*I spent four days actively walking around downtown tourist San Francisco and collected only eight total street passes those four days. Pitiful.

I'm lucky in that my office building is attached to a mall so I'm in the mall a lot and that's often good for a tag or two. Plus, there are a few nearby comic book stores where the employees have their 3DSes with them all the time, so I've made good progress on most of the StreetPass games (and just got the silver Animal Crossing StreetPass badge). But the local Best Buy and Future Shop are listed as relay points and I've never got any tags there. I haven't been to a McDonalds here since they announced the relay points, so I don't know if those places are working or not.

Pretty sure I will never play Mii Force enough to get ALL the hats. Oh well.

No, they're not -- but you don't know what's coming next. Trying to do the IQ puzzles in five seconds on level 3 at high speed's a bitch.
