Okay, lots of new cards and all descriptions have been added!

Thanks again for all the work, I know I really appreciate it.

The 8 GB SD card I've got in my 3DS feels more justified now.

I was thinking the same after I read this.

This game was the main reason I bought a 3DS, the original is one of my favorite games of all time.

Can we assume there will be a NA version when the games are released here?

I was hoping with "New Super Mario Bros. 2" they would incorporate some SMB2 elements.

double posting since no one has posted since I last did

After getting near the end of the game i was perplexed at how my galactic readiness rating wasn't going up even after doing all of the side quests, then google told me that it will only ever raise if i play the mediocre multiplayer mode -_-

Seriously wtf Bioware. However since i know the ending is really shitty and how everything you do doesn't matter (i dont know what happens exactly, but that seems to be the consensus) does upping your readyness rating actually do anything in the game?

Gets you an achievement but other then that I'm not sure. I quite like the multiplayer but what I don't like is how stupidly scaled the difficulty is. Bronze is a breeze, Silver is challenging but Gold is just downright impossible unless you have a solid group who wont do whatever it takes you rip you off of a kill.

I would hardly say the ending is shitty (working on my 3rd playthrough) it is open to interpretation. In the grand scale of things it may seem like your choices mean nothing in the end but the choices you make mean something to you and to the people involved. On my renegade playthrough when I killed Mordin Solus it was really emotional for me, the only choice I made in the game that really made me stop and say "wow, what just happened". Mordin survived the suicide run, him and I were friends and had a past together.

Each time I am at Thane's beside (he was my romance in 2) when he dies, I get all teary-eyed.

The ending(s) may not be what everyone was looking for but the journey there is well worth it.

I actually have quite the soft spot for the Mirror's Edge song.  "Still Alive" by Lisa Miskovsky.

I also love this song way too much. I got all the remixes on my iPhone and listen to them regularly (also a great game!)

My musical tastes are extremely varied so some (most?) will be hit or miss with most people but maybe there will be something some of you like too:

Nero - Promises Is a DnB/Dubstep group who I am hooked on at the moment. I especially love the beat of this song as well as the vocals.

I have a couple videos here from the same artist because she deserves all the props and recognition she can get. Her name is Janelle Monáe and this video is Cold War next is Tightrope (Wondamix) [Feat. B.o.B and Lupe Fiasco] which is a remix of Tightrope [feat. Big Boi]

This next one is Little Dragon - Shuffle A Dream. They are an electronic band with a fantastic singer.

Flyleaf is admittedly one of my favorite bands and this song especially helped me a lot during the time my mother had leukemia it's called Okay. Another song I really like that has Flyleaf (well Lacey anyways) is Apocalyptica feat Lacey Sturm - Broken Pieces

Alright now I am going to get lazy and just post the bands name and song:
Minus The Bear - Knights (Indie rock/Math rock?)
Rishloo - Blitz (Progressive/Experimental Rock)
Japanese Cartoon - Heirplanes (Lupe Fiascos Punk/Rock band)
Burden Of A Day - My Forfeit (Post-Hardcore)
Jamie's Elsewhere - One Foot In the Grave (Post-Hardcore)
Dance Gavin Dance - Heat Seeking Ghost Of Sex (Post-Hardcore)
Atlas Losing Grip - - Horizon (Punk - sounds similar to Rise Against)
BT - Forget Me (Electronica DJ who always has really bad hair)

I worked at Target for the holidays and I want to say 60% of the questions I got were "do you guys sell Skylanders" which we did and then it was "do you have so and so?".
I still don't really grasp the concept of Skylanders.

If you guys are still sending out the stationaries would you mind adding me too?


Thanks :)

Since joining yesterday I have been posting and browsing around and I really am liking this site. I found by accident while looking for a Kid Icarus weapons guide and I instead found the jumbo guide here that had all the AR Cards, I knew I found something special. I already started listening to this past weeks Podcast, loved it.

So a little about me I suppose:
My name is Kayla, I'm 24 and I work at a local video game store called Games N' Go, that specializes in retro and new gaming. Pretty much I get to sell NES/SNES/GBA/Genesis, etc.. games all day. I get to talk about them and get massively excited every time somebody buys Faxanadu or Tetris Attack. My location (we have 3) is in a busy mall so it's never dull. In short, I love my job.

I've also been gaming for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest memories is of my brother getting and NES for his birthday, I had to have been 3. I assume our parents bought us video games to get us out of their hair but they didn't realize it would be a passion of mine for the rest of my life. I remember when my brother, my mom and I all beat a Link to the Past. I was pretty sure I had to coolest mom of all time.

The only current Nintendo console I have is the 3DS, but I play the hell out of it. I commute to work by bus/train so I play it pretty much everyday. I also have a 360 which I am currently play ME3 (3rd playthrough).

Ok well that was a bit bigger of an intro than I expected but yeah thats me.

I've really loved the nostalgia feel of Super Mario 3, really makes me feel like a kid again. I grew bored of this game rather quickly. I am almost to special world 8 but it seems like that was painful for me to get to. I played the heck out of New Super Mario Bros., so I don't know why I am having a hard time enjoying this one as much.

Thanks for posting all these, very impressive. My only issue is with some when you pull out certain piece(s) the game then lags to a crawl and I just can't play those puzzles anymore.

Before today I hadn't gotten a single StreetPass on my college campus, despite pretty much always having my 3DS on me. I just got back from class, took out my 3DS and the green light was on, which got me excited. I open the Mii Plaza, and it turns out I had three of them. What are the odds?

Clearly you need to go to a cooler college then.

Thank you guys so very much for all your hard work in making these AR cards available to us. I found this site by accident while looking for a weapons guide but it's clear that from now on I'll be checking this place out often :)
