Who else feels like an aspie when they play their 3DS in public?
Only if you give a shit.
That's what the DS was for.
For mobile play in areas not restricted to a home console.
At least your not some autist playing some shitty mobile game on your tablet or phone loudly for all to hear and take notice.
But if your just minding your own biz with your 3DS at low volume or mute then who should give a shit?
If it concerns you that much, seek help.
If you don't look like a fat neckbeard, people don't give a shit.
I played my 3DS in college and they would gather around me to see what I played even if they didn't play games at all.
It all starts as a "Oh what's that?" and ends in a nostalgia talk.
I don't, but I have some magical talent for attracting the biggest personal space-invading mongoloids when I play so I usually avoid it because I don't like people literally breathing down my neck.
>went into target a few days ago to snag a few clearanced items
>glazed over amiibos for a brief moment because why the fuck not
>turn around to be greeted by some 6'4" fucker wearing a trenchcoat standing an inch away from my face
>I'm blocked in on the other side and I make eye contact with him
>"are you looking for amiibos, too?"
>tell him no and try to appear uninterested so he'll stop talking to me
>takes everything I say out of context and starts sperging out because he thinks I have the Megaman amiibo
>after 5 minutes of pointless conversation he leaves
>walk into gamestop to see if they still have my MM copy on hold
>he's there, talking to the cashier about amiibos
>instantly recognizes me and I can see the look in his eye that he wants to start a 3-way conversation
I don't give a shit if I'm playing vice city stories on my PSP in public, why do you give a shit what someone thinks while you play your 3DS? that makes you a sperg for caring.
I don't even care, I got so many people commenting on mine. and it's just a $1 decal.
I live in Europe and here people dont give a shit about such stuff.
Also we dont have as many neckbeards as you have. Im an arts student, I dress well and I look good. I still enjoy my 3ds and play on the train when Im going to a shoot in the set.
Occasionally I see other people playing too and I get tons of street passes.
So I think this whole "only autists play in public" is just a shitty american thing.
(first time posting in /v/ in a year, love you guys.. But you gotta cool down about what people think about you and embrace who you are)
There really are people like that huh...
>At least your not some autist playing some shitty mobile game on your tablet or phone loudly for all to hear and take notice.
Reminded me of this
Fedoras are still fashionable, if anyone actually wore them the right way.
Problem is you have people wearing fedoras with a T-SHIRT AND JEANS for crying out loud. And then they throw a trench coat over that thinking it goes.
Unless you're wearing a good dress shirt and a suit, NOT a TRENCH, we wouldn't have this issue.
>gee, i sure am glad i don't live in america!
>play 3DS outside with my gf
>feel less aspie since I'm with someone else
>every so often someone boots theirs up and chats/trades Pogeymans/whatever with us
Feels aight mang
Its funny how you guys get so upset at the least bit of criticism, even If end my words in a praise or affection..
Keep being bitter anon, it will surely help you alot in life.
I play my 3DS with headphones on the train to and from uni, it's about 1h20m each way
I'm an ausfag, so our trains look like pic related - and since I'm on off-peak trains, I get a full seat or even a double seat to myself (they flip so they can face either way). Nobody cares what you do on the train, people keep to themselves. Some people do work or internet, others watch TV shows or play games on their phone or do all kinds of other shit. I've even seen a couple other 3DSes over time, nobody cares
Plus I get streetpasses at uni, anywhere between 5-10 depending on the day
I play 3ds in public.nitbdoesnt bother me. People do the same thing on their phones, the only difference is my games are not just ridiculous time wasters that nickel and dime you to death.
>says she's into pokemon
>it's clear she isn't
> I can tell she looks down on my love for a kid's show
>tfw no gf to be your pokepal
I wish I could feel your feels.
My gf wasn't even into it but she tried it out with me when HG/SS came out. It's a great game to play with a partner since it's basically designed for trading with the oppostie version. If she's into vidya at all there might be an in.
>> I can tell she looks down on my love for a kid's show
Ok now I'm on her side. The show is garbage
You can avoid the claw by putting the dpad on the touchscreen near your righthand thumb, it isnt hard.
The nub is better but its not really worth repurchasing the 3ds, especially if you have the mh4 limited black LL like I do.
Approachable looking moderately attractive guy with good hair playing a 3ds in public = normal.
I recently saw an attractive couple playing Magic TCG in public and they looked like people you would want to be friends with.
But if you are ugly or greasy and dressed like someone who should not be outside of their house then ya... then you look autistic.
>touching the screen with your fingers
this is why I'm buying a new 3ds
I didn't think the fedora had gone far, but when I arrived at University, I finally learned. There are about 12 people in one day wearing a fedora and looking like shit. It really is getting bad.
You can use your fucking thumb on the touch screen with the touch D-pad in the default position. I don't understand why people find it so difficult and have to resort to shit like this.
>>says she's into pokemon
>>it's clear she isn't
Thats too bad,
>>I can tell she looks down on my love for a kid's show
Unless you're talking about the early seasons, she's right. Pokemon anime is fucking garbage dude, why aren't you reading the manga?
>This thread being this large.
Learn to hide your numeric readings from scanners fools.
I'm able to dodge just fine, and I can turn the camera during the dodging animation too. You don't have to have your thumb hovering over the B-button to dodge, you're just as quick either way. Like I say, it's positioned like a second stick. No one would say THAT prevents you from dodging.
I don't feel weird playing mine out in public. I will sometimes use it on the train. I used to use it more often when I was in college. I would play in between classes if o didn't have homework or something. Not as much anymore though. I did just get the New 3DS XL last night. I didn't get to do my system transfer until late last night so I didn't get to try it out that much yet but I'll play a nice comfy game of MM and see how I like it. The screens are huge compared to my Zelda edition launch 3DS
>not being a part of glorious micro master race
I don't play it in public because I believe there is a time and place for videogames. Try to have some self control.
You may argue and say "Well then why the fuck did you purchase a portable console?"
For the games, not the portability
Exclusivity is why I purchase any console
I disagree with you, people should be allowed to play what they want without social stigma.
That said; I can't vouch for portability. I spend train time either half-sleep or relaxing before I have to go to work.
The only place I'd play my 3DS is on my couch whilst half-watching a programme, or on a long-ass flight.
German/Belgian here. Yeah, I guess it's quite the same where I live. Anyway, people are much to busy with their little magic phones.
What would happen. You get mugged?
Sometimes I don't feel like being at home and have no money to go out. So ill just hang out after work and play monster hunter or ill go to a nearby cafe. it also gets me streetpasses since I take the bus and walk around.
its feels great and no one cares. Ive even talked to a few people about my circle pad pro.
Do what I did when I moved to a dangerous city
Go to an army surplus store, by a solid steel Flare Gun, and a few Shotgun Shells, then replace the pellets with rock salt. I kept a flare gun loaded with rock salt in my jacket every time I left the house. Never had to use it, but I'm pretty sure a chest full of rocksalt would give you enough time to abscond with your goods
What's the point of having a handheld console if you're only playing at home?
I use it when I'm commuting to uni in the train or waiting long times for doctor or another shit.
straya fag here
If im waiting for something like a bus or a train, i'll whip it out and play some smash.
i've even played a couple of matches with some kids on a train.
I'm only really comfortable playing at an airport gate.
Mostly because everyone is less likely to be a shitty human being when calling attention to yourself makes you feel like you're gonna be called a terrorist there.
It couldn't hurt to keep something like that in your pocket anon. At the very least you could probably intimidate your attackers into leaving you alone.
Worth a shot at least, stay safe Brazil bro

This reminds me of a this one time where I was sitting on the bus playing my psp with my headphones in. I had my psp in my lap and this guy seated a short ways away was playing a ds, wearing a shirt that was a little small with an old NES controller on it, playing with no headphones. This 8/10 teenage girl sits down across from that guy. She smiles to me, gives him kind of a funny look. I don't think she saw my psp cuz of how the seating was, maybe assumed I was listening to an ipod.
Anyway, about ten minutes later I'm looking up to see how close we are to my stop and I clearly see the girl lift up one cheek. Unmistakably she was ripping ass. I don't think she made a sound cuz nobody seemed to pay attention but after a few moments the raunchiest, most disgusting stank filled the bus. It was like rotten eggs with vinegar and old garbage-can.
Anyway, these three black guys were on the bus and they started overreacting. She had this smug look on her face, and she was like, "EEEWWWW." And I could fucking TELL she was gonna pin it on this overweight manchild playing his ds. The guy could tell it to, from the look on his face, and he was clearly dreading it.
So before she could finish pinning the blame, I pointed to her and said loudly, "DUDE THAT CHICK JUST SHIT HER PANTS."
The black guys made fun of her and taunted her the rest of her ride, and I'm pretty sure she got off a few stops early. The black guys got off not long after. Me and the DS guy were alone on the bus, he looked over to me and said, "Th-thanks." I nodded to him and held up my PSP, like, 'us gamers huh' and he donned a look of disgust.
"UGH, PSP IS....pretty good too, man."
