As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Swapnote: Friend Codes Go Here. Updated for August.
Spring 2011. 3DS drops like a rock worldwide. Oh sure you might have a crazy talking from a street corner about how awesome Street Fighter port is, or maybe someone proclaiming that Shadow Wars was the next best thing to a real X-Com sequel, but most people did not care about that crazy new DS with its glassesless three dee. Where are the real games? Why did Nintendo abandon the launch to these ungrateful third parties? No Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, Kid Icarus, Mach Rider, Soccer, Balloon Kid sequel. What is wrong with them?
Months went by. Oh sure, we got a Zelda port, a ton of free games (22 and counting!) new colors, some 3DS ware, some VC Gameboy titles. Whatever.
But then finally our salvation came this winter with the biggest thing to ever come to a handheld.
3D Doodling. Online.
It's no surprise that in the two weeks since coming out in Japan the 3DS has sold around 800k more units. Probably did a lot more than that in the one week Europe and America has had it. It's that good.
Swapnote/Nintendo Letter Box/Amazing fun time doodling machine for a bright future.
The purpose of this thread is to gather friend codes and to talk about Swapnote. If you post your FC in here, I will add it to this post. If you PM me, I will add it to this post. Use the rest of the thread to tell people that you added them (or send out a gigantic PM chain or whatever, you're smart people, you can figure it out yourself.)
If people don't add you back, PM them and see if they will. Those names are in order by date so if you actually posted in this thread you might have some of them, some of them are also gleamed from posters in this thread who have their code in their sig and may not even check this thread anymore.
