Really tempted to bite on RE:Mercs and Nintendogs... One of those is a more likely scenario though.

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 already have RE, Nintendogs and DOA. But I'm tempted to check out that Blazblue game.

Even at $20 I can't bring myself to buy this junk. The 3DS needs some games that are worth my time & money.


Yeah I thought I'd be happy to buy this game for $20 but alas, I am not.

But Dead or Alive: Dimensions is a really solid fighter. The story mode is awful but the gameplay it self is really strong. I enjoyed it more then SFIV but I know many of you will disagree.

DOA:D is great for anyone that do not have the console version.

I couldn't find DoA at the local Best Buy, so I ordered it on Amazon instead.

I was thinking about getting the RE game, but the fact that you can only play the game once, then it's rendered useless because of the one save-lock-out, is going to keep me from buying it...ever.

you can't trade the game, you can't replay it because the save file is basically a one time use thing.



phuck that noise.


Nope. From what I understand, while the save is locked, this just means that high-scores and unlockables cannot be reset. You can still play the game as many times as you want.

Anyone here play Nintendogs or Super Monkey Ball 3DS?

I recently bought my girlfriend a 3DS and am wondering if either of these two are worth biting on.


I tested out super monkey ball and it was not good at all.

Got a $5 credit from amazon due to my Layton games still not being here when they were due last Thursday. I used them to get DOA D for $15. Also picked up RE M & Nintendogs...for myself :P

Not sure if BB will pricematch a gift card offer, this is in thier FAQ:



http://www.bestbuy.c...cat204400050011


It really depends on the Best Buy you go to. Some are fine with price matching gift card offers, or allowing buy 2 for $.

I'm totally with you on that one, I was pleasantly surprised at how good DOA actually was.



Also, for those of you complaining, I thought I read somewhere that there actually was a way you could delete the save file for RE, you just had to jump through a hoop or two to do it.

*EDIT*

After a quick search on google, I found out I was right. But, you have to use a NDS adaptor plus(which you have to buy separately for about $20). So, for those wanting this game on the cheap who don't already have one of these it pretty much cancels it out. But, at least it can be done if you have, have, have to delete the save data.

Thanks OP. I picked up DOA at Amazon instead of wasting gas to go to BB. I don't even have a 3DS yet but I'm going to be picking it up soon.

What? You can trade it in ($13 @ BB, $6 @ Amazon). If you are referring to GameStop's stance: "Retailer GameStop has reversed its decision in not accepting trade-ins for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D." GameStop is currently offering $12.

Wtf are you talking about?

It's an arcade shooter, not a story centric campaign.

I ended up buying the game, for $20 I have no problem justifying any drawback. I was hoping for Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion on the list but it wasn't. ='( I know it's on sale at GS, I think I have till tomorrow to pick it up or just wait on it again.

It seems like Sega is completely clueless as to why people ever liked Super Monkey Ball. With every sequel since the original GameCube game, they have changed it in ways that make it worse. For instance, in this 3DS game, they place extra emphasis on the fighting and racing modes, 2 of the least enjoyable mini-games from previous versions of the game, and they reduce the main mode in both length and difficulty.

At this point, they should just re-release the original game with updated graphics and then give up.

And why isn't Amazon matching the price on Ghost Recon?

Anyone know how long this will last? Is a week deal or what, reason is I just traded in a couple games to amazon and it has 1 business day left before it gets to them, then probly a day or so later I'll get my credit which I would love to use on this. But if the price will be gone very soon, I'll bite anyways.

I JUST finished playing RE. If you liked Mercenaries from RE4 and RE5, you'll enjoy this game. It's a bit watered down, but it mixes the two worlds and has a ton of unlockables, which is fun. The online process mostly works smoothly, too, unless the other guy quits. But overall, a solid game.

i wouldn't return ssf4. its the superior game of the 2. at $18 its even better. doa is good at $20, but not worth returning ssf4 to get.

i dont have a 3ds yet, but i would really like to start building my collection

is it worth buying some of these now...or will games like doa/resident evil drop in price even further to 15 or even 10?

thanks, i feel more at ease knowing that i got a good or even better game then DoA and can just wait for it to come in the mail. it was actually $15 but shipping made it almost $19.

I have no doubts in that which is why I haven't bit the bullet yet, here is to hoping it's sooner than later.

DoA has been this price and maybe even cheaper a few times already, how far down the road I have no clue but I'm sure we would at least see them for $15 at some point in time.
