Hey, BZPers. I am sorry about not having FRINGE Friday entry this week. I was planning to make one, but my tiredness kind of won this Friday. And well, I kind like to sleep more than I like to write rambling entries about FRINGE and other stuff. I hope you understand.

But anyway, I am popping in today to give you all an update since I hadn't talk to you folks in like two or three days, I think. Really there is not a whole lot to talk about life-wise, beside that work has been keeping me busy lately.

So how about instead of rambling about life, I talk about video games here? lol Well, we might as well since that is what the title in reference to. So I am sure if any of you recall my last entry, but I mention that I was thinking of buying Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. And well, as I expected, none of you guys seem to have play a Professor Layton game before, so I decided to just take the risk and buy it.

I didn't buy a physical copy though. I had brought it from eShop. Why you might ask? Well, it was mostly to test to see how long it actually took to download the game off the eShop (It was about 40 minutes judging from my computer's clock.). That and I kind wanted that promo Donkey Kong game that Nintendo is offering. So yeah, those were my reasons for doing that.

Now you must be wondering how does this relate to the title though. Like is the game awful or something? lol No, I played this game for like ten hours yesterday. And I thought it was quite fun and the story seem to be rather interesting. Admittedly I was stumped a lot by most of the puzzles in the game though. But that's hardly surprising since I am not very smart (REF: JMJ is awful at playing Portal 2...).

So what then is making me sad? Well, it has to do with the fact that I had download this game on to a new SD card because the 2GB one that came with 3DS is getting to be about full now. And unfortunately I never copy what was in 2GB one to the new 8GB one, so stuff like my Streetpass settings and Ambassador games were still on old memory card. Now at first I thought that there was no issue there because I could simply just swap memory cards out when I wanted to use the other data.

It didn't occurred me until today though that I probably leave this memory card in my 3DS by accident when I go to school, which would technically means I would get no new Streetpasses, which would kind of stink. So I thought I would just back up my two SD cards to my PC (Which I did and that took quite awhile to do, especially 2GB one.) and combine the two basically on to one SD Card. What I didn't realize though is that 3DS save data for it end up being like same file name for something else, so it basically got overwritten by the other thing. Meaning that it was one or other.

So ultimately I had to decide between the two. And as much as I would like to keep my 10 hours of progress that I made yesterday, I went with saving what was on my old SD Card. So yeah, I am back to square one in that game now (Technically I still have the save data since it is on my computer in case I change my mind again.). Its stinks and well, it is one of many reasons why I have no intention of regularly downloading retail games to my system since I hate having to manage memory stuff. But oh, well, I might do better now that I know the answers to some of the puzzles. *shrugs*

And that's it for what I have to talk about video games because well, I hadn't have the chance to play Pokemon Black 2 since the last time I wrote a Pokelog for here, I believe. I actually was going to play it yesterday though since Mister Blade made me want to play. But I got caught up playing that Professor Layton game, so I never did.

Well, that's all I have for you folks. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope all have a good day. I'll talk to you later, BZPers.

As far as I know, you can get the old card date through the 3DS system transfer; it requires a second 3DS, but I think you can do it with the help of Gamestop, or whoever.

Losing save data is the worst. I haven't bought any full retail games off the eShop, but if I do I'm definitely upgrading my SD card beforehand so I don't run into that problem.

@VIII. Axel: Hm...I don't think even that would work though, unless it is letting me transfer specific data from both memory cards. *shrugs* Still I guess that's good information to know. Thanks for telling me, dude.

@Lyichir: Yeah, it stinks. But at least in this case though, it means that I might earn some points back now that I know the answers to some of the puzzles.

But yeah, you should definitely make sure you upgrade the SD card, if you do end up doing that in future as this problem can be quite annoying.

Thanks for commenting, VIII. Axel & Lyichir.
