    Steam's UI has seen some changes (again).
    Now, I go to [username] → Content and find two tabs: Artwork and Collections; what are these about?

    The Collections are several Workshop items similar in theme that you have either favorited or created.

    The Artwork is art that you post (or favorite) on game hubs. Here's the official statement on artwork:
    Quote:
    With this update, you’ll find a new ‘Artwork’ tab in Community Hubs, where you can now post or discover all kinds of artwork associated with your favorite Steam games. We posted some concept and character art in the Valve Community Hubs (Team Fortress, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, etc.) to help get things started. Let us know what kind of neat artwork you’ve created and share it with the community. To upload artwork, go to the related Community Hub's Artwork tab and look for the "Upload Artwork" button at the top right.

      So I've been playing the GBC remake of Harvest Moon GB on my 3DS that I bought of the eShop. I gave the gnomes my some of my tools like the sickle, and it has been 24 hours and I still haven't got the super sickle back in return. Is there something else I need to do?

        I believe there was a gnome who asks you if your sickle was working alright, and he'll upgrade it the next day... have you spoken to anyone like that?

        Yeah, he took my sickle, and it has been a in-game day. I haven't got it back though. I read somewhere that you needed to wait an irl day, but how does that work on the 3DS?

          Well, first, did you say 'yes or 'no'? He'll only upgrade it if you say 'yes'. :(

          Second, I don't really think the 3DS has much bearing on the VC game, aside from save slates, so, I guess it'd be a normal irl day regardless, I guess.

          Yeah I did :(

          Maybe I'll try leaving it on with the game up and just be inside a building, cause game time doesn't pass in them.

            Hi!

            I just want to ask about the 3DS Wifi features and playing ordinary DS games.

            My 3DS is set onto the Wifi we have. When I open my DS game will I need to configure the WFC, etc. settings in order to activate wireless features or can I use my 3DS wifi settings to bypass those details? I don't have a WEP key or whatever for the DS settings and I want to be able to use the WFC and internet for games like Animal Crossing and Dragonquest IX.

            I hope that wasn't too confusing. Sorry for sounding like a total noob - technology confuses me sometimes..

            thanks in advance!! :)

            Sadly, the 3DS goes into DS mode when it emulates DS games, and it even uses the DS Wireless Connection when playing DS games. This means that it's still WEP only for DS games, sorry :(

            This is more a matter of personal opinion than a specific help question, but I don't feel it merits a thread.

            Basically I've recently linked my PS2 back up to see if it works as I plan to purchase Final Fantasy X, I could also buy XII is it worth it?

              Soooo... whatddup peps... here's the deal, I have a ps2... LOL

              Getting serious, I have had a PS2 for about 7 seven years now and it's asking me to quit it and buy a new console.
              I had the chance several times to play with the PS3 along with friends and also alone. I've played games that are AMAZING like MGS, AC, GT5, GTA, etc. The thing is that I have been avoiding the PS3 for so many years, not because I don't like it, but because I had my ps2, and everytime I had the chance to get one I'd always get something else instead of it. Now the moment of truth have come. PS3 or PS4?

              The one-million dollar question is... should I get a PS3 now, having such a large and interesting catalog although without so many online servers online, or should I wait a few more months and get a PS4?
              I know there are several INCREDIBLE games that are still coming for the PS3 and to be honest, I still find the PS3 incredibly attractive when it comes to games. So one of the main reasons I'm thinking stuff over and over again is because, let's face it, I'm 21 (22 this year) and I barely have time for gaming, probably that's why I had my PS2 for so long, and having such an extense library of games for the PS3 to play, I doubt I'll get bored or regret any buy. Get me?
              Why the PS4? well... duh! It's the PS4 dude, new games, new graphics, new technology.

              Recommendations? thaaaaaanks!

                This forum is a question about Maplestory. I have it downloaded on my PC (Via Steam). I want to play it, but i don't want to wait for steam to take an eternity to download the update even though the game patches itself. The question is, should i uninstall the Steam version of Maplestory and download the version from Nexon's site?

                  Recommendations? thaaaaaanks!

                  Well, I think that if you get a PS3 now, you'll be able to get a special offer from, say, Gamestop, to trade in that PS3 for a PS4 for a special price, just in case you're thinking of grabbing a PS4 later. Well, that's one option if you're thinking of getting a PS3 first. They've had that promotion when they started to sell the Wii U - you can trade a Wii for a Wii U, and get a about a special 40- 50% (I forgot the amount) credit bonus towards it.

                  Then again.. the PS4 isn't backwards compatible, iirc (Well, I think GamesRadar will compensate that, but still). But, there are great games coming out, like, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III, and The Elder Scrolls Online if you're into all that! Personally, I'd hold off to buy a PS4 when it comes out, but, that's in my opinion.

                  Well, if you want to take account for speed, then, I'd say by all means, go for the speed. But, this is really up to you.

                  Chaval: It really depends on what kinds of games you want to play and how fast you are going to be playing through them.

                  Thing is, it emulates the DSi software, and most DS games released after 2008 will be able to connect to the internet via WPA, since the DSi could do that and most games were programmed with that functionality after that point.

                    I don't even like the PS3 much (dislike it, even) compared to the PS2 and PS1 but I still say go for it. The system is at its best right now. PS4 can wait, because the launch line up is pretty terrible atm. NEVER buy a system at launch year, imo.

                    I recommend:
                    Last of Us (haven't played it, yet. But word of mouth says it's GOTY contender.)
                    Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (a SSB rip off, but a good one. If you look past its flaws it's a great game. Just don't expect it to be Smash Bros great.)
                    Uncharted series (Self-explanatory)
                    inFamous 2 (I personally liked it because the controls and abilities but it also bore me because I just generally don't like them. If you do, this game is amazing.)
                    Little Big Planet 2 (hated it, but a lot of people love it...but they ain't platformer fans. Avoid otherwise if you are.)
                    Metal Gear Rising (multi-plat I know but it's so good and the PS3 version is the best one.)
                    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (see above...though the Wii U version is the best, but you probably don't have it. Avoid if you don't like complex fighting games)
                    Any PS2 HD trilogy that isn't Silent Hill (MGS is the best one imo.)
                    Ratchet and Clank Crack in Time (didn't play it but word of mouth says it's the best PS3 platformer)
                    MLB 13 The Show (don't mind me just the baseball fan in me forcing me to recommend it)

                    Just off the top of my head.

                      So while I can connect to dreamworld while playing White, That's pretty much all I can do internet wise unless I find a WEP. :( Silly Nintendo. Thanks anyway :)

                      You can connect to the Dream World and trade with others... but you may encounter issues trading over WiFi with someone who's using a DS Lite or the original DS. I've not personally experienced any issues with this myself, but there are others who have had issues.

                      Older Pokemon games may indeed have issues, though.

                      Well, they both play different as all hell...X is just great IMO, XII was good, but a lot different. But it has a lot more to do. So getting both wouldn't be a bad idea. Just be prepared for an entirely different feel of game when you play XII straight from X (Turn Based VS. MMO Styled)


                      I'd get into softmodding to play international editions, but...yeah nah.

The question is, should i uninstall the Steam version of Maplestory and download the version from Nexon's site?
                        Steam is only an added inconvenience when the game doesn't use its updating system. I'd recommend installing the non-steam version, then adding a shortcut to it in Steam (Add a Game... → Add a Non-Steam Game...) so you can use the in-game chat and whatnot.

                          Hey guys, I'm hoping somebody could give me a hand troubleshooting my 3DS XL. So I recently upgraded from a 3DS to the XL version. I used the system transfer feature to transport all of my information over. I thought it went quite well, transferring all my saves and settings, including my Mii plaza and streetpass info. The thing is, the streetpass feature is no longer working properly. I've noticed that the green light will come on, indicating that I have streetpassed somebody, but when I go to check, it says that nobody has been street passed. I tested it with my girlfriend, who I have streetpassed many times. The light came on, but when I went in, it said it had been over a month since our last streetpass. All the settings seem fine. Any ideas? :(
                          Thanks in advance!

                          Have you checked and made sure that your 3DS system software is up to date? You can do so by going to System Settings > Other Settings > #4 > System Update, and download the update if it asks you to. I know for a fact that the MiiPlaza recently received an upgrade, and it's almost like an overhaul, so be sure you follow those steps provided and see if StreetPass works again.

                            Get PS Plus subscription. Instant game collection is probably the best service Sony could offer. (Gravity Rush is also in IGC)
