I got off work early and decided to stop into a Gamestop in South Plainfield and they had a little 3DS set up with Street Fighter. Picked it up, started fiddling with it and noticed the bottom screen is basically a cheat/macro button screen which I thought was the ultimate cop out but nice for people who don't know combos or moves or even want to attempt to pull them off on a handheld device. After playing 2 fights, 4 rounds, my eyes hurt and I gave up. I went back to it like 10 minutes later after the guy at Gamestop was actually nice and helpful, he mentioned that you can adjust the 3D effect from the slider on the side of the screen.
After tinkering with it, I immediately noticed all it does is shift the screen in opposite directions and strain your eyes. As somebody who had a lazy eye, I could cross my eyes at will and it's really rather painful to play this in anything but minimal "3D". The more you shift the screen, the lesser the quality on the screen gets too. Needless to say, don't shift the screen all the way up from zero, it'll freak your eyes out. This handheld looks to do more damage to eyesight than anything else, it's way too damaging for my eyes to handle properly. Anybody who had/has a lazy eye, avoid avoid avoid!
I do like the analog stick, it's way way better than the pre-GOW:GOS new analog PSP 3000 nub. I could only ever fathom playing the 3DS with 3D turned off which makes it pretty useless, my money will be better spent on an NGP that doesn't need a gimmick that hurts my eyes.
