What in the hell just happened?

#1CapashiePosted 10/8/2011 9:44:02 AM
So I'm shaking my 3DS for the daily coins, and I check to see how many steps I've got. 989. Great, just a few more. I close my 3DS, shake it a little more, and check again. Same number of coins. Well, you'd think it's just that the shaking didn't register. The only problem is that the step counter then showed eight steps. Odd, but I continued shaking. Upon reaching 100 steps, I got the last coin as I expected. Reaching 200 and 300 didn't add any additional coins. I just can't help but wonder why the step counter would reset like that. I know it doesn't loop because I often reach 10,000 plus steps in a day. Has anyone else experienced this?

A lot of people use that method. I've never tried it, but I bet I'd kick ass at it. I always chop onions the fastest in Wii Party. :D

Smack it on the back without too much force. Might be like the wiimote where you have to smack the accelerometer into the correct spot

You seriously cannot walk a mere 1,000 steps in a single day?

I know they do, and it's stupid.


Why the hell do these people just swing around a $250-$170 Game System like a toy just so you don't have to walk around for maybe fifteen minutes?
