Why I shouldn’t work for Nintendo
One of the weirder features of the 3DS is “Streetpass”, where your system regularly exchanges a little information with every other 3DS it passes. It’s not a lot – your Mii data, your greeting, and the last game you played. You build up a little collection of Miis as you walk by people and can play little mini games with them. It’s cute.
Of course, I always try to remember to launch Senran Kagura before I put my 3DS to sleep, just for Streetpass. Gotta rep the pervy, after all.
Anyway, occasionally you’ll get a special Mii on your system, generally a Nintendo employee. These come in via WiFi rather than by walking past them, of course. The only difference really is that they have gold sparkles around them in your Mii collection, so they have a greeting and last game played etc. With E3 going on, I’ve had several of these guys visit.
Why I should never work for Nintendo, to get back to the subject of this, is this: these Miis all have announced, released titles as their “last played” – Zelda, Animal Crossing, that sort of thing. If I was a Nintendo employee, I would find a way, somehow, to set my “last played” to something like Mother Collection, just to make all the fan sites go rabid.
I’m not a good person.
