I'm just getting into buying 3DS games since I'm late to owning one, man these are some expensive little bastards! Not to mention apparently GS no longer "keeps" the original game cases on trade-ins due to shelf space! WTF! Isn't the 3DS like one of the best selling systems at the moment? You would think they would bump something else to keep space for them. :(

Anyway, I'm having a hell of a time getting a decent price on Zelda: Link Between Worlds & finding a used copy complete, any suggestions other than eBay where apparently everyone has no problem spending msrp on used copies!

I've decided that for my 3ds collection, I don't need to keep the original game cases. I'm not selling these. I'm just going to get one of those Club Nintendo card cases and store them in there. This will make portability a lot easier. Plus I need less plastic crap in my life.

If they are still good, the last few games I got all were redeemed already. I'm sure it's the employees taking them anyway. lol

I just bought the Lego Batman 3 for the 3ds, but where is the nintendo code?  I see a manual, but no sheet for club nintendo.  Is there another way to earn points?

Also, not all games come with CN codes.  I forget the pattern to which ones do and don't, I'm sure someone else hear can enlighten us. :)

 

But yes, newer games (3DS and Wii-U) now print the codes on the inside of the artwork.

I'm surprised of the lack of RPGs a la Bravely Default that are out for the 3DS right now. 

 

Speaking of, who here has played Fantasy Life?

Fun game. Just be aware, it could suck you in like Animal Crossing / Tomodachi Life. I play with my girlfriend and the art style is pretty cute lol

Another obscure item for GameStop is Crush. This was originally a PSP exclusive but is really made for the 3DS since the gameplay is driven by shifting between 2D and 3D. Anyway, it's $9.99 new and $2.99 used. It is a GameStop exclusive, at least for new condition.

I think it's games published by Nintendo or exclusive to Nintendo platforms. At least, that's seemed to be the case for me, but it's not like I'm buying multi platform games for Nintendo systems.

I'm kind of interested in this game but I picked up Rune Factory 4 and just couldn't get into it. Is it similar? If I find it in the $20-$25 range I'll bite.

Fantasy life is cute. It's fun. It's relaxing. You pretty much spend the entire game doing what would be considered side missions in a more epic, intense RPG. You literally just go around completing little tasks, which vary depending on what job you currently have. The music and art style are great, and the dialogue is well written and pretty funny. Just don't expect to feel like you're saving the world or progressing a complex plot.

I love Fantasy Life. I'm at almost 70 hours right now. The story is nothing special but it's a lot of fun doing the various lives. I lose track of time when I'm playing because I want to just do one more task and then next thing I know, it's an hour later.

Digitally, yes.  Retail copies do not have points.  No insert and nothing on the inside cover.

I'm pretty sure crush sold poorly, I picked up a "used" copy at GameStop that was probably converted from new because it was still in the original plastic

Know it's not the best deal because it is normally $29.99 but Mario Golf World Tour is an amazing Mario Golf title and it is $25.99 ($20.79 after GCU). Been losing hours playing golf.

The problem with some of these games, especially first party, is that they retain there value. Keep your eyes open here at CAG, Sears/Kmart, wait for TRU to have a b1g1 40% off or like you said eBay but be persistent.

I'm not lying, I don't have the receipt but this picture shows my copy of crush is still sealed. The GameStop employee was surprised too. Another one for the backlog

I just wish I could play as Waluigi or any of the actual characters in the career mode instead of being stuck as a dumbass Mii. But yeah, it is fun.

Thank you! I would not have known otherwise. I had to Return/Rebuy in store, but I saved a few bucks.

Thanks. Picked up a used copy today for $3. I've had the game on my Amazon wishlist for a while now and just couldn't pay the $12 for it. I'm glad I waited. Game/case looks new.

Is it possible to Price Match this at the store?

I was trying to do Pick Up at Store but they don't have that feature available here.

Yeah if they have it. Not sure if GCU would work, though.

CS Rep said they actually can't price match the online order in store.  I ordered it a few days ago when it was $21 and had it shipped to my address.  It came yesterday and today I went into the store with the packing receipt, and return/rebuy.
