In Topic: Pokemon X and Y Announced!

I snagged the last one at my local GS.  I'm going to tuck it into a birthday card for my son - he turns 7 in less than a week.  If anyone has an extra code I could use myself, I'd be grateful.

In Topic: New Zelda for 3DS!

25 November 2013 - 01:18 AM

Can anyone who picked up the Zelda 3DS XL edition comment on the gold paint on the inside of the unit?  I really would like to get this but my concern is that over time that paint is just going to start coming off, especially around or near the D-Pad and buttons.


I think this is a hard thing to comment on.  I did get this, and can give some general comments, I guess.  The paint is nice quality, in my opinion.  It is at least on par with my silver DS lite.  Where the silver DS lite (and the white I first had) have a very glossy exterior, the Zelda 3ds is more semi-gloss or satin.  The interiors feel pretty similar, with the gold perhaps being a bit nicer.


I have used my previous DSs quite a bit, but was always careful with them.  They look pretty much new.  I expect the new 3ds to last in much the same fashion.  I was a bit concerned initially, as I have a silver Halo Reach 360 controller that has a very small worn spot from my wedding ring.  I am not concerned about that with this how though, as the ring doesn't rub the 3ds the way I hold it.


If you have specific questions, please PM me, as I am not on CAG nearly as much as I used to be. :)
