I bit on Animal Crossing yesterday, at $24, it has gone gone a bit more, but I'm not unhappy because all of my local stores are now out of stock (week wait for it).  My son had expressed some interest and he seems to like it.  My wife was a bit concerned it was one of those "have to play everyday" type of games, but I explained it has new things everyday, not just essential things.

 

Luigi's Mansion is a must buy.  I've had it a while and it is a ton of fun, especially multi-player with single cart play.

 

Donkey Kong is really good, frame rate isn't as silky smooth - but it is still no problem at all.  It is just noticeable versus the Wii which was 60 fps.  The game is a bit easier due to the store offering a few life saving items and lives being cheaper, as well as more generous health - but it still gets really hard in some areas.  World 5 is the start of the hair pulling with many forced scrolling minecart/rocket/bug swarm levels and it is still a one mess up you die with sparse checkpoints.  Not as bad as the Wii, but still frustrating for the average player - their are places you have to have perfect memory and timing in order to survive - there is no margin for error.  Wish they would have done something about those in the updated mode (and left difficulty intact in Wii mode), my son stopped playing after dying a ton, and he really liked it up to that point.

No I've only played this one so I can't compare beyond what I've read.  On it's own I have no problem with the quality of the graphics and think that the 3D is really well done if understated.  One of those times where they did it in a way that works within the existing game instead of trying to make shove a gimmick into it.  Controls are sharp, level design is great and it's surprisingly challenging.


Gotcha....yea see I played the Wii version... I loved it, but I just wish it wasn't the same game (barring the 8 extra stages...)

Yeah, if you've played the Wii version I would probably pass and hope Tropical Freeze comes to 3DS if you don't have a WiiU.

Man.... Walmart is crazy... Went to the store today to get it for the 29.05. Its listed as 39.99 still. I asked a employee to price check on that since its advertised cheaper. She said nope, rings up at 40$. I go to customer service, they said straight up, they dont price match walmart.com... Which is o.0 but ok, then she said what I COULD do is if it has the option of "ship to store avail today" I could order and pay for it online, then just grab it. Yea.. only issue is, the store I was at, didnt show up as a "ship to store" option, all these other ones did. She asked me if it was a new game or so, and if I REALLY saw it in stock. Im like, Yes I did, you HAVE it in stock. She claimed they wouldnt have it in stock till the 10th... Im like cant you just get a manager here to help out and she was "Nope, they cant help since its walmart.com stuff"

 

So long story short.. had to order it at a DIFF walmart for store pickup which is lil more out of the way but its ok.. but then I got hit with something else that wasnt said BEFORE I ordered it. Was the "Pickup only avail from 10am to 9pm" so seems even if you ship to store option it.. you have to be at the store during those hours (Which is a lil hard for us working class people during that time frame.. I wouldve went at 11pm if able) so yea... now gonna mess up my morning just to get there before work just to get the damn game.

 

Anyways just thought I would share my story about how Walmart is doing this... which is very annoying.. Too bad amazon says 2-4 weeks to ship.

What time were you there and wasn't there a Best Buy or Target or something else around that would have just matched it?

Was 11am. So wasnt even busy at all at the CS desk, only like myself and maybe 1 other there. Also Bestbuy and target could only price match physical advertisements, as in they call the store (if they want) and verify the price. No retailer will match a .com price unless its also in the store.

Not true.  I have matched online only prices at Best Buy a couple of times myself, and I know many other CAGs have done the same.  I believe Best Buy will even price match Amazon and a series of other online retailers now, though I haven't tried matching Amazon yet myself.

Too bad amazon says 2-4 weeks to ship.

 

I realize you're probably stuck with Walmart at this point, but for anyone else considering their options, I ordered from Amazon on Sunday and they said "2-3 weeks," but the package shipped out on Tuesday already.  Of course, YMMV, and if you need the game right now then that's not gonna cut it, but I thought it was worth mentioning.  (And here I was actually OK with waiting, since I don't even own a 3DS just yet ...)

I matched Amazon at Best Buy on a Kindle I bought at Christmas time. Had no problem doing it and saved me an extra $30.

BBY might have given you a bit of trouble if it showed out of stock but neither store should have denied you a Walmart.com price match as it's a direct local competitor and specifically listed in their policies.
