For me, it was that our profiles were banned despite us not being online for a period of 3 months (the banning was an error, and was finally corrected a few days ago).


Dunno why getting banned from Xbox Live prevents you from downloading, but oh well.

PSN, actually. I use CFW. And yes, I do pay for my games.

...the ones I actually like, anyway.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

For proof, look here:

Just got my 3DS paid off. I now have the Internet Browser update, and now truly have no reason to miss an update for PbP.


Shame it can't run Flash (maybe a later version will), but I am curious if it's inability to read PDFs is only for the browser itself? Need to try uploading a PDF onto the SD card and find out.

Its inability to deal with Flash is pending the homebrew scene.  :D Many really cool things came to the DS once they started 'brewing.

I want to be able to upload some Touhou games to a SD card and have the 3DS play them. Hopefully this can become a reality.

Someone already ported a Touhou and some VNs to DS. I think I posted it earlier in the thread, or in the Anime/Manga one.

My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Except that requires an actual DS cartridge, something I don't have spares of just lying around.

Has anyone ever played Chrono Trigger Black Sigil? I remember seeing a trailer ages ago, but forgot the name until I came across a reference to it recently.

Half-way though Assassin's Creed: Bortherhood (and sidetracked on the Wii) but great game so far. Can't wait for Revelations.
Tiers explained in 8 sentences. With examples!
[spoiler]Tiers break down into who has spellcasting more than anything else due to spells being better than anything else in the game.
6: Skill based. Commoner, Expert, Samurai.
5: Mundane warrior. Barbarian, Fighter, Monk.
4: Partial casters. Adapt, Hexblade, Paladin, Ranger, Spelltheif.
3: Focused casters. Bard, Beguiler, Dread Necromancer, Martial Adapts, Warmage.
2: Full casters. Favored Soul, Psion, Sorcerer, Wu Jen.
1: Elitists. Artificer, Cleric, Druid, Wizard.
0: Gods. StP Erudite, Illthid Savant, Pun-Pun, Rocks fall & you die.

Haven't seen one in years.
Played it to within 1 board of the high score first time out.
Now I have something to do with 30 minutes of my time(s).

Like Metal Gear. Minus the mind screw, and with a coherent plot.

So not as awesome as Metal Gear. (And hey, Metal Gear has a perfectly coherent plot. It's just so freaking convoluted you need a freaking database to be able to keep up with it top to bottom.)

Gameplay-wise, it's as good as a Metal Gear/Resident Evil hybrid. Story-wise, it's as good as the original Deus Ex, or a watered-down version of Ghost in the Shell.

I thought the original Deus EX sucked major donkey balls?

No, that was Deus Ex: Invisible War, the original sequel. This is technically the prequel to the first game.
