3DS anyone?

Recommended Posts

I picked up my 3DS a few days ago and I love it! I spent 3 hours the first night just playing with the stuff already on the system. I was so surprised that there was so much to do with it right out of the box. I grabbed Street Fighter and both LEGO games. I'm planning on buying Zelda and many more down the line.

I am very tempted by this system, but I am still on the fence due to the price of the games.

How much are games?

I am certainly interested, but I will wait till the equivalent of the DSi or XL comes out. 3DS.2 or .3. You know. Price drop and all that.

They are mostly $40 each. I too might wait until the next version comes out, and some of these earlier games start dropping in price.

I bought one. I got Street Fighter (forgot how badly I sucked at fighting games) and I've got Zelda and MarioKart preordered. It's a beautiful system, but I've always been a big DS fan anyway, so my opinion may be skewed.

Haven't spent much time playing it the past few weeks. Too busy with other things, but I'm going to be making time once Zelda is released. :)

Yeah, I usually wait for price drops and sales for games but a friend made me an offer I just couldn't pass up. He gave me the system, the two LEGO games, a case, a silicone sleve, and a set of screen protectors for $290.

The only design "flaw" I see with the system is them putting the stylus back where it was in the original DS. Just a pain, that is. I'm also not a huge fan of Nintendo continuing with their dilusion that hundreds of people are going to be wandering around with these systems everywhere you go. I did manage to get two Street Pass hits from driving past a Game Stop, though.

Other than that, the system is seriously fantastic. I highly reccommend it. I love the "Augmented Reality" stuff and collecting Miis with the QR codes is just super fun. Plus, downloading the 3D videos from the e-shop was a nice surprise. They even recently offered the 3D Green Lantern movie trailer and it looks amazing! I must have watched it 20 times by now. And the fun part is, I can check on that with the activity log.

Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2, Animal Crossing, and Mario Kart are must owns for me. Resident Evil look sweet as well.

I may get one if/when Smash Brothers 3DS and Luigi's Mansion 2 are out, but at the same time the money I could spend on the system as those games could go towards Luke and minimates...

Well, you've gotta remember, in Japan, where Nintendo is truly based, you have millions of people crammed into cities together, and a much higher ratio of people have these things than here. In America, especially if you're not in a mega urban city, it's not going to work, and even for the cities you'd have to look at the demographics. Are corporate business men really going to carry these things around like they would in Tokyo? There's still a stigma attached to videogames and comics here in the west that doesn't hinder people in the east.

I kinda wish I had a 3DS just so I could do the street pass thing at SDCC. It'd probably be the only time where it would actually work.

I think I am just going to stick with my DS Lite and the games I like. I really have no time anymore to be playing handhelds anyway.

Usually if I get time, I'm either using my brother-in-law's PS3 or my Wii, PS2 or Dreamcast.

If only they would make Super Smash Brothers minimates...

As Barney Stinson would say, that would be legend.... Wait for it....

Dairy!

Anyone still playing 3DS games? I lost interest. Regained some with Heroes Of Ruin but I'm really hoping we get some good non-Mario/Zelda titles soon.

Im still playting them. And I know what you mean with:Good games that are non-Mario or zelda. They need to make a call of dutie or halo style game for the 3ds. It would work great with the motion censore.

I actually got one of these. Still only own one title for it: Ocarina. Sad really... but it's not from lack of interest. It's from lack of funds. If I could get Mario Land cheap I would in a heartbeat.

I didn't want to make a new thread and remembered this one existed.

I ended up buying my Brother-in-law's 3DS since he bought an XL.

So if anyone is interested, here is my friend code: 2552 - 1913 - 4499

Feel free to add me!

I recently picked up a 3ds XL, I had a longish trip coming up and wanted something to play while I was away, was looking at getting a Vita then realised there weren't many (any!) games coming out for it.

Then I saw the new Zelda and fell in love with it, I also realised there is huge backlog of cheap DS titles to play and ended up with a 3ds.

So most of my videogame time lately has been playing Zelda or an old DS game called 'orcs and elves', which is a turn based old skool dungeon delver that's super simple but far more fun than it should be.
