I'm not sure if this has been pointed out but the original DS dropped for $149.99 in 2004 adjusted for inflation that would be $179.23. It would seem to me we are getting a handheld at a more competitive price than the original DS. Plus the 20 games from the Ambassador program.

PES was a part of Amazon's buy one get one free offer recently. They might bring that around again.

went up to BB tonight with a friend. They only had 1 on display, went to customer service and they called over the "Game Manager" and he was like DO IT for $170 no questions asked! So my friend got one as well. Will make a great gift with the 20 free games! Downloading the update now.

What are the main issues with Blazblue on the 3DS?


For starters its a slap in the face to consumers, but take your pick of the following...

  • Doesn't support standby (closing the lid = sleep) and MIGHT be the only game to lack this feature.
  • 3D effect was dodgy in menus, but ok in game. (not as good as SF though)
  • No online
  • No thumbstick support
  • No touch screen to do moves (but the full moves list is on the touch screen)
  • Playstation Vita version announced a week after release that will have online plus more story stages not featured in the 3DS/PSP version.
  • Awards use mostly the same icons which is silly since the original game had MANY icons that go unused
  • At the cost of all of the above they thought it was wise to charge 33% more than the psp version (10 usd) without thinking twice.

This game makes me really wonder how people can hate Capcoms RE the Mercs save issue, but not even comment on this load of shit. I wouldn't even mind so much if you were paying a Premium for a worthless port that was out of date a week after release. Then again uninformed idiots will bitch about Capcom's doings over anyone elses :roll:

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Yeah, I was aware of these issues, so I picked it up for the PSP instead.

yes, the HORI screen protector does have a purple tint to it when looking at the upper display and the system is turned off.

(I believe it has to due to the filtering that the protector provides and the glossy black plastic that covers the entire upper panel. however, this does not appear to detract or affect the display once the system is turned on)

picture with the system powered off shot with an iphone 3GS (my SLR's flash detracted way too much)

edit:
the protective cover on my 3DS is HORI's silicone cover available in black and white (shown above)
amazon.com sells the black version, but not the white

edit2:
apparently, HORI USA has it's own webshop and most of their products are available

oh thank you so much for the photos, it really helps a lot! does the bottom screen become less sensitive to touch with the protector? and are the case's any good?

5 minutes to midnight...got home with plenty of time left to set up my 3DS for the Ambassador program! I am just glad I made it in time, because otherwise I would be bitching up a storm about Nintendo right now! I am going to rub my new status in all of my friends' faces come tomorrow; those suckers!

Yes, no one I know has a 3DS yet. I have my FC in my sig, if anyone else wants to add me send me a PM with your FC.

Other than Mario vs DK and Tetris is there any games that should buy in the eShop? Has anyone tried the new golf game that just came out?

Mixed reviews on the golf game. IGN gave it a 9, while NintendoLife gave it a 6. Personally, I was discouraged by the framerate issues in the trailer.

I'd recommend the DK Gameboy VC. Amazing game.

I've been playing the golf game and I like it. It's pretty full featured for a downloadable game.

The biggest downsides are the frequent loading screens and the occasional freezes that can sometimes make you swing too hard.

Some people are saying the 3D is awful, but I think it's pretty good for what it is. Overall I'm glad I bought it. I just wish it had an online mode.
