You said there won't be ANY RPGs until next year. The problem with that is that we don't know much about when games are coming outside of the near future, so E3 will have more info about releases for the rest of the year.


Isn't this the start of the gaming drawl... usually drying up till E3?

always remember not getting much for games for the next several months....

March is the end of the quarter for most companies, so they try to push out as many as they can by the end of the month. There's a bit of a lull because the 3DS is new and developers and publishers are taking their time getting on board.

Within the next 10 days there will be Firmware Update.

Haven't really been doing much with my 3DS lately besides the usual 2500 steps a day I take and the 30-40 minutes I play KI:U.

Welp, I finally got a 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land (and Tetris Axis, which Gamestop gave me for free as part of some special deal apparently).

In regards to the console itself and the shop, what should I be checking out? I've already played some Face Raiders, got a bunch of Street Passes, started collecting puzzle pieces from Street Pass and playing Find Mii, and downloaded Super Mario Land from the VC and the Resident Evil demo.

Get Swapnote if you like to doodle. It's free.

Also, if you're on Club Nintendo (if not, go register), they've been allowing members to use their coins to score free 3DS/DSiWare games for a few months now. Every month there are different games. Metal Torrent is the one for this month. I think last month was Art Academy.

I recommend Pushmo with every fiber of my being. Such an excellent game.

My copy of Kid Icarus finally came and I played through the first chapter last night. Happy to report that the stand works absolutely fine with the Power Grip +, in fact the added rubberized grip provides additional friction and I dare say it might make for a better fit. The extra weight it adds to the 3DS seems to give a more secure fit on the stand, too.

As annoyed as I am about having a stand for a portable system, it works and it works well. I don't mind some titles requiring a different approach to gameplay because ultimately it just means more diversity on the system, and other titles had essentially the same controls (Star Fox DS comes to mind, which I rather enjoyed).

Haven't even tried the stand yet. I really don't think it is that uncomfortable to hold. I'm thankful that Nintendo included the stand with the game. They should have done the same with the circle pad pro. Maybe charge $5 or $10 more for the bundled version of the games that use it (resident evil or mgs).

Hm, I wouldn't think the stand would be more convenient than holding it in your hand, what with the constant use of the L button.

Yeah. I'm a DQ freak so I had to get it. It's ok, but there's not a lot to it. No single player campaign, repetitive soundtrack, and a very small variety of monsters. Worth a playthrough but I wouldn't buy it again that's for sure.

No.

Can't recommend it. The game has some tutorial missions, but after that, there's just matches you assemble and play out. No story mode, no campaign. Nothing.

Friendly reminder that - at least on my account - Club Nintendo Ambassador titles expire on April 21st. You've got a week to get the surveys done for the 100 points.

Ever since the redesign, there's not a way to do this as far as I know. Really annoying. KingBroly knows more than me though.

They removed that info because they want people to register games ASAP. You might still have until next year for some of the old ones, but new ones expire much sooner now. According to their FAQ, registration surveys expire after a week and post-play surveys expire after four months.

Isn't the old way 2 or 3 years from the time you register them?

If you remember when you did it... then you can count ahead on when they will expire.


I have some that will expire this year... not a whole lot.

Most of mine will be 2013.

Heroes of Ruin is supposed to come out in June, and looks interesting. Kinda like Gauntlet with deeper RPG elements...


I played Heroes of Ruin at PAX and your description is right. Plus, the 3D is intense! It has so many layers I actually had to turn the 3D down a bit (never had to do that for a 3DS game before)!

Only played for about 10 minutes or so, but I liked what I saw. Really enjoyed the 3D effect too. Too busy playing Kid Icarus, but wanted to try it out :D

IMO, yes. The controls with the abxy buttons are just way too awkward. You can turn sensitivity up/down to help compensate, but it just felt weird to me in the few hours that I played(KI:U has had me hooked since it came out, so I haven't played more yet). I can't remember if there's a gyro control scheme - if there is it'd probably help a ton.

Edited by Mixer236, 16 April 2012 - 10:03 PM.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I want to say I've seen comments that when folks play Find Mii, they can bring with them one of the folks they've met through Streetpasses? How is this done? Is it something that's unlocked at some point? I'm nearing the last four rooms of my second playthrough.

In Find Mii 2 you can "Hire Old Allies" you've met through StreetPass by purchasing them with coins. The higher their level, the more coins it will cost you.
