The game revolves around “X energy,” which comes from monsters and is used to perform miracles in the world. With the unnamed hero of the game apparently being the only one who can absorb this phlebotinous substance, his ability will prove crucial in saving the game’s world.

Browser Version of Miiverse Updated to Allow Messaging

May 29th, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

Miiverse PC 00

Nintendo recently updated the browser version of Miiverse, making it far more robust than the simple post viewer it was just a few months ago.

Browser users can now:

  • Post new messages (as opposed to replies only)
  • Follow people
  • View friends/following lists
  • Update profile details
  • Edit who can comment on your posts
  • Control whether game-created posts will show up in your activity feed
  • Share Miiverse posts with non-Nintendo Network ID owners (just copy/paste the message URL)
  • Make another post three minutes after their last one (previously, it was five minutes)

Private messaging has yet to be implemented, but that can be given a pass, considering all the improvements made already.
