      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

3DS - Community Thread!!

7,538 posts in this topic

Seriously, why don't we have one already? I know the 3DS launch thread use to be one but that topic is kind of dead now.

So on with the thread....

------------------------------------------------------------

What is everybody playing on their 3ds right now? Why?

I'm currently slowly trying to play Danball Senki Baku Boost. Haven't had much time to play due to work. =( Over all the 3DS port well done except for a few issues (lots of jaggies and in some places things are too pixelated to make out). The 3D is light which kind of sucks but also is great since I don't get any cross talk issues. I'll have to write up some more feeling about the game when I get further.

Side info, I imported a copy of Guild 01 (level 5) that will be here next week (got it with a really cheap Super Monkey Ball Vita). I'm really looking forward to checking out 2 of the games. =D

Yeah I was just thinking of this actually. Though really I think it'd be best if we either changed the vita thread to the handheld community thread, or retired it and created a new handheld community thread, rather than having two community threads here. We should sticky it too.

I'm still playing a little last window every night before bed, taking me awhile this way, but I just don't want it to end so I'm playing like 30min here and there before I fall asleep. I just beat Kid Icarus over the weekend so I finally started Resident Evil. I tell ya playing these two games after playing the vita pretty much exclusively these last 2 and a half months, it's a surprisingly small drop in what I've been used to graphically. It's amazing what these two games are doing with the hardware this early in. The fact that they both have fantastic 3D helps with that of course.

Going to finally get back to playing the digital games I got a few months ago too. I got that Sakura samurai game and haven't even played it yet and I need to finish mighty switch force and mutant Mudds. I'm really excited for Kingdom Hearts DD in two weeks as well.

I love this idea, but am drunk, and will need to formulate my thoughts more fully at a later time.

Kudos on the thread and I look forward to Stephen and Dean burning this motherfucker to the ground.

Just kidding doe, this will be moderated a bit more heavily so that it doesn't dissolve into petty bickering.

On topic: I only got 3 streetpasses from JFK to Honolulu to Kona and back again. NY, NY, CA. Lame sauce, but I honestly never usually get any so those are my first of the year, I'll take it.

They're not community threads like that though. They're actually somewhat relegated to Vita-specific discussions, for when a dedicated thread wouldn't be necessary.

yeah, I suppose they are different than say the PC community thread pre board that way, so maybe it does make sense for them to be separate. I do like the vita thread as a way to post random thoughts about it that don't need a new thread, to just see what people are up to on the system and what not. I'd personally prefer one thread to do that with handhelds in general, but it's not a big deal I can live with two separate ones and I'm glad someone made a 3DS one.

Starship Defence, the DSiware reward on club nintendo, is the reason I'm going to be tired and cranky at work tomorrow. Game is so good.

Other than that, haven't played my 3DS since resident evil :( Was going to grab Theatrythymthymsryth (that is now in my iPhone dictionary) but they were sold out, so I bought a new laptop mouse instead.

OT, I hope to some day be part of this thread. 3DS is becoming too tempting to ignore.

Looking forward to playing through RE Revelations, Kid Icarus, Theatrhythm and Dream Drop Distance on the Red 3DS XL I will be getting launch day. I'm also looking forward to trying out my other games on the screen and device, for example Mario Kart, Ocarina of Time, Pilotwings, 3D Land and Starfox 64.

One thing I thought about that I haven't really seen people mention is the XL's d-pad is now in the middle of base instead of all the way on the bottom like on the regular 3DS. This will make d-pad use much more comfortable. I find the d-pad location on the regular 3DS very uncomfortable to use because it's so low and there's not enough grip if I'm to use the pad on the corner of the device. Now with XL that's not a problem anymore.

Anybody made their 3DS XL plans yet? I think I'm 100% certain I will swap my JPN unit for a XL. It will probably work out best since my JPN unit has all my VC games and ambassador GBA games. As well i'm more likely to buy up more VC stuff from japan then USA. I'm just unsure exactly when i'll get one. They hit japan next week but I might wait a month before grabbing a white one (will do the transfer then sell my old jpn one online). I am tempted though to cave and buy NSMB2 via the eShop next week (since I can use my Credit Card Directly). I probably should consider upgrading my memory card though. =/

Yeah I was just thinking of this actually. Though really I think it'd be best if we either changed the vita thread to the handheld community thread, or retired it and created a new handheld community thread, rather than having two community threads here. We should sticky it too.

Personally I think it's better to have two seperate topics going on at once. It's nice to have a small wall of separation for the two platforms here. I really don't want to talk 3DS in a vita topic and vice versa. Regardless of what one person here thinks of me, I really do still enjoy my 3DS and want to have a place to more talk about it then having to make a brand new topic to chat up some small stuff. =/

I think i'm going to just take the leap and buy NSMB2 digitally when it releases (thats in just a few weeks, right?). I'm glad i didnt jump on Heroes of Ruin, sounds like i would have been upset with how quickly i could have finished it, and since i probably would have barely played multiplayer, it woudlnt have been worth it for me.

Honestly, i really want Code of Princess, i wish it werent going to be october before it releases, as there are apparently a few Vita games i want that month also. And then Animal Crossing. Thankfully with the VC and some of the eShop releases, i'll be busy for a while.

And Mo, what is this Starship Defense game?

I've been terribly addicted to Civ V the past few weeks. I'm about the buy myself and @ Gods and Kings. You should join us for a game sometime :)

OT, I'm currently playing Pokemon Black, but I plan on allowing NSMB2 to consume my soul in august.

Thanks for making this thread chakoo. My efforts to derail the PSV CT into a HH CT failed along time ago.

Another thing you've failed at. :P

I"m still thinking of buying a 3DS XL. The more I play Heroes of Ruin on my 3DS the more I hate the screen. It could be that I don't have my glasses, but i want to blame the small, lower res screen anyway.

NSMB2 is next week for japan and August 19th for USA. I should probably wait for the USA version (much cheaper) but it's only a $20 difference and I don't have to go through a proxy like I do on J-PSN. =/

BTW I PM you my friend code and added you on to my 3ds. =)

And Mo, what is this Starship Defense game?

A damn fine Tower Defense game from Q-Games. I wonder why they haven't announced any digital 3DS games yet. The 3 DSi eShop games they did were well worth owning.

Thanks for making this thread chakoo. My efforts to derail the PSV CT into a HH CT failed along time ago.

Yay, my thread wasn't a waste of time then. =). BTW I PM you my friend codes. I just need to get yours back to add on my system.

It's awesome. If you like pixeljunk monsters or Fieldrunners, and have 150 coins in your club Nintendo account, get it. What, you're going to waste those coins on a pencil case or some silly shit? No! Get this instead. Or buy it, it's five bucks.
