Just picked up all 3 for when I get a 3DSXL later this year. I'm hoping we get a nice Monster Hunter bundle over here like Europe.

SMT is a series that requires no trailers, it's an auto take my money now :lol:. I am waiting for the announcement of them bringing SMT IV over here. Also Professor Layton for $15, god damn that is a sexy price for that. I had to buy that.

Anyone ever have any issues adding someone to their friends list?

I'm trying to add someone and his friend code is showing as invalid and he said mine is also showing as invalid.

Anyone know what might be the problem?

I'm tempted by BitTrip Saga on the eShop for $10, but Amazon has it got about $11.50. It strikes me though as the kind of game I'd play way more if I didn't have to have the cart on me. Opinions from anyone who's played it?

Can't really give an opinion on the game itself but I will say that for $1.50 more I'd get the physical cart.

It's a great collection of games, though the only issues I had were that 3D mode wasn't very good and that the menu controls weren't consistent throughout the entire game.

Yeah, I've heard the 3D was hit or miss and caused slow down at points. For me, that doesn't matter because I'm actually incapable of seeing the 3D effect due to the way my eyes (don't) work. I've been thinking about doing a blog on it, and I'm curious how many others are in a similar situation.

I posted about it in the eShop thread, but it'll probably get more exposure here. It's been confirmed that we'll be getting the Zelda Oracle games sometime.

Good news for those who haven't played them - they are excellent. I'm going to pass though since I still play them about once a year.

I'd get the digital version. At $11 you're not likely to be able to sell the cart again.

I did prefer the 3DS version if you have a wii. The paddle games are easier to control. It would be nice if they'd sell the six games individually rather than loading the collection up each time.

It would be great if Nintendo had some means of transferring game card saves to the digital version of Bit.Trip Saga, as I'm assuming that there's no way currently to do that through legit means.

I don't have much time for consoles or else Id go the Wii route. Portables are the only way I have any time to play games between working full time and grad school =/

Supposedly an app/tool is coming this spring to do that very thing. No idea why saves can't be backed up on system memory. Its totally dumb.

Really? I've heard nothing about that, but it would be great to have true ownership of my saves for once.

Doesn't sound like a real backup tool, just a transfer utility for digital downloads. Also no word if it will transfer from digital to cartridge, but knowing Nintendo that'd make too much sense =)

Just finished Ages and started a linked Seasons as part of my plan to replay the Zelda series prior to WWWU (Wind Waker WiiU). Would love it if Capcom made another portable 2D Zelda. So much better than the 3DS games.

Have you played them before? They are both great and on the short list of games I wish I could play again for the first time. The DS games are an embarrassment in comparison.

It's more than just a transfer tool. From what I've been told anyway.
