The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


3DS StreetPass Update Includes New StreetPass Games For Purchase

Posted on Friday, July 12 @ 08:21:22 PST by Keri_Honea

The StreetPass feature of the 3DS is one of the best reasons to own the handheld. Unfortunately, in the US, the only way I can get StreetPass to be tons of fun is to attend geek cons or visit Japan. When I visited Japan, I got nearly as many StreetPasses as I do at geek cons by just walking to the train station. That's something I really won't get to experience here in the States, but I'm digressing quite a bit.

Nintendo is about to release a new StreetPass update to expand the app, that will include new expressions for their Mii characters and new Puzzle Swap panels and four new StreetPass games users can purchase.
  • Mii Force: Players use StreetPass Mii characters to blast their way through enemies and keep the galaxy peaceful.
  • Flower Town: Players plant seeds in their virtual gardens. When players StreetPass with other players, their plants are watered. Cross-pollination can lead to new breeds.
  • Warrior’s Way: Players use StreetPass to recruit troops and amass an army to unify a country.
  • Monster Manor: Players collect StreetPass Mii characters that bring new pieces of floor. Players can then create rooms, fight ghosts and unlock treasure chests in a climb to the top of the mansion.
Each game will cost $4.99, or you can buy the bundle for $14.99.

By playing these games, players can earn tickets to unlock dozens of new outfits or hats for the Mii characters. Your Mii no longer has to wear a simple unicolor shirt!

If only I was going to SDCC or any other con this year to take advantage of this update. StreetPass is one of those odd things that makes me strangely giddy about my 3DS.
