On the Chasm note, definitely agree its become a much better game, initial release was not as well made. I am slow rolling it but enjoying it, I think you can end up spending a lot of time if you search for everything.
So on an eshop note, I saw that Nintendo added the ability to add stuff to you wishlist on the web store, but did you know you can see your wishlist now in the browser?
you log in to your account and at the bottom there are drop downs for wishlist and other eshop stuff, glad to finally not have to log in to the in console eshop to do this.

Haha... banning the giving of gift links? Gift links that you can't give. So that just makes them links.
Are we allowed to just leave them lying about, like mints in a bowl, for people to take? Not technically a gift.
IGN never fails to suck the fun out of life.

I’m playing on a New 2DS XL, and even without the 3D, the graphics are fine. All you’re losing from other versions is resolution, as the original 2006 PC game was hard-capped at 30 fps. What makes it stand out for me, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is that it’s a particularly well-made example of a JP 3D platformer of that era. It’s by Falcom, and localized by Mastiff, so the degree of Japanese “quirk” is straight outta the turn of the century, if you’re at all nostalgic for that period. Because of the JRPG elements, it’s easy to compare it Zelda, and while it does feels like it sits somewhere in between that series and Mario in terms of platforming, the structure of the levels reminds me more of Ape Escape than anything else: find a switch in one room that opens a path elsewhere; long corridors that hide streaming in new areas, etc.
Can you go into any detail on why? I was looking into it, and while there’s not a lot of information, it kinda sounds like, at least graphically, it’s the worst version. What makes Gurumin 3D stand out?
So for me, there’s an amount of nostalgia in play, as it really takes me back to the early Dreamcast/PS2 era, when devs were still experimenting with 3D adventure platformers. But this one just happens to be pretty free of the technical jank and bland art direction you saw in more forgettable Western takes. Think of it as a long-lost Dreamcast JP import you never got to try, that holds up a lot better than something like “Vexx” or “Darkened Skye”
EDIT: I should also point out that, like Ape Escape, neither the combat nor the environmental puzzle-solving is as challenging as something like a proper Zelda. So for me and my 8yr old, right now, it’s kind of a perfect, breezy-summertime-adventure, a chance to dip our toes into something Zelda-like without having to think too hard.
EDIT 2: I see now that it looks like you were just asking about why this version is the “definitive” version, not for praise for the game itself. Sorry for the word vomit

It's not without some flaws but truly worth far more than the $7.50 it costs when it's on sale.

(Also ordered Ni No Kuni physical a few days ago off eBay. Does anyone have any tips for this game? I'm really looking forward to it).
Great game, enjoy. Relaxing and chill. Not particularly difficult.
If you'd like to save some time here's a tip about

I bought it on the PS3 years ago, and I still never finished it. I'd say that you need to be patient. It's a beautiful game, and it has a great story. But there is a lot of grinding as you go. That's why I never finished it.
At first I thought you were describing Duke Nukem 3D

It's a very good roguelite mixing elements of The Legend of Zelda and Rogue Galaxy that works really well. Well worth the price.
