>buying physical games
how does it feel carrying a shit ton of plastic chips, nerd?
>tfw finally swallowed my pride and ordered Style Savvy: Trendsetters
It gets here tomorrow, fuck I'm excited.
but I hope my roommate doesn't open the package
I haven't played it yet (obviously), but it's rated highly and seems to be something I'd like. You run a store, create outfits for customers, and play dress up.
/v/ also had an affection for the original DS game, if I recall.
yea same. I bought the red 3ds when it came out like 4 years ago, still works and all, but last week I got the red n3ds which I'm so happy with. I was really on the fence about buying it too, I'm glad I did.
Considering hardware malfunctions might warrant purchasing a replacement, I see no reason not to hold on to your originals. And while I don't give a shit about buying collector's editions, I totally get people wanting one even if they already own the same hardware.
Also it's cool as fuck when somebody has multiple DS to play. There are some fun multiplayer games in the library, if you didn't know.
>tfw can't find my copy of SMT IV
Not that it matters much, my two SMTs are the two games I probably wouldn't consider selling.
Haven't kept up with the piracy scene at all. Does the Gateway work out of the box like the R4? When was it even released? Don't wanna waste money on something that gets invalidated after one software update.
There was a DS version. Possibly the best thing about it is it has single-cart download-play - so you only need one copy of the game to play 1-4 players. Really underrated game IMO.
Which Harvest Moon? New Beginning is alright, Tale of Two Towns blows, and Lost Valley is arguably not a "true" Harvest Moon game.
imo just get RF4.
Ya Mario Kart's download play was dog shit. Diddy Kong Racing was MUCH better in that regard.
Mortal Kombat's disappointed me the most. You could only pick like four characters.
I rarely play it because all the games for it suck and playing vidya outside seems kinda autistic
>Gateway coming in the mail
>Don't know what to download
What should I download and try out?
>Had an original DS and 3DS a long time ago
>enjoyed some of the games, but hands cramped like a bitch
>kind of wish I had a 3DS again
Are the new ones much larger now?
>Vita with shit screen
A small but decent collection.
its bretty gud, pic related my amiibo waifu
>pay $70 once versus paying $40 for every game you want that's not on sale.
Seems fine to me. To mod most systems you usually need a hacking device, a modchip, or a specific game anyways.
>people paid $200 for a circle pad pro
You do know they're only $20 right?
Reposting from last night picked up Soul Hackers today.
Never liked how bulky the CPP are, plus the better processor really makes a difference in MH4 graphics wise. (It makes the game a lot more colorful)
People need to stop doing this.
It's not the true claw.
It's just terrible.
The claw was meant to allow you to move and reposition camera simultaneously on a PSP. Using your right thumb is fine.
I cant take pictures but i have the Mario and Luigi Dream Team 3ds.
How'd I do?
Trigger 3D is fucking terrible, only got it because based Take Fujii made it. Jamie Oliver came with Order of Ecclesia in a little mystery bundle I got, so whatever.
I also own VLR and Kid Icarus.
Bunch of DS games
Demon King Box
Mega Man 2
Wario Land 2
Demos, system shit
Have a Team
Canadapouch and case. A 6-slot case is shown on top of the 3DS, usually holds the 6 games I'm more likely to play.
Tossing up whether or not I should pick up MM3D, since I already have three other copies of the game.
Its not a separate app, its an xposed module you install and its works with the normal snapchat app. I am warning free and have been using it for over a year. You gotta be rooted though.
No. Also since vita is welcome Idort master race.
Yeah, got that sick limited edition MH4 New 3DS, r-right guys?
Guys, this is an important question. Listen.
Do I buy MH4 digitally (I know, I know), or do I wait the painful amount of time it might take for a store to get it locally/order it on Amazon and wait a similarly long amount of time?
I need to play it, but I don't want to possibly lose my save if anything happens to my 3DS. What do I dooooo
my system broke, and I just called nintendo and had them transfer my NNID..
Where did this rumour that if you break/lose your system you lose your shit come from?
I broke my old 3ds because it flew out teh car window, I transferred my newer 3ds with just the old 3ds's box.
>Clean New 3DS
>Play 30 minutes
>Smudge everywhere and whole system feels greasy
>Clean New 3DS
>Shit happens again
Anyone else having this problem?
I'm not even sweating and I don't know why this is happening.
I never had this problem with any other Console/Controller.
>xenoblade and upcoming games
But it does matter. My old 3DS is bricked, along with all of my save files
unless Nintendo was lying, and I can just copy files over from the SD card.
And pls, I never lose handhelds. Who does that.
>mfw Im gonna spook some friends by pulling up their full snap vids
It's a hard case. I got it from PAX, I'm not sure if you can buy it anywhere
>using internet on 3ds
why the fuck would someone use the internet on their 3ds when they could use their smartphone? I don't even have a smartphone but I would rather get up and walk to my computer.
I'm 95% sure that you can copy save files from 1 3DS to another. But if your system bricks, if your DS is linked to your Nintendo account, you can call them and have all of your purchases restored on another system
>wait til e3
Why wouldn't they announce all the games they have for the launch of their new system?
Let's say you're right, the option is still on the table for me to buy a n3ds. But when there's jack shit exclusive to n3ds come e3 you'll be getting the best exclusive of all: disappointment
>not downloading games while you sleep
I would see zero difference between n3ds and 3ds load times.
I play smash on my WiiU. Even then I only play with my friends in person. There is nothing else that demands a faster internet on 3ds.
Take pic of QR, image downloads instantly.
Do you guys live in a 3rd world country where the N3DS makes internet connection seem faster? Cause here on google fiber everything is extremely fast.. all the time.
Too bad you guys are too poor to afford that.
shilling out $200 for every new version of 3ds adds up over time also. You do realize there's been a new 3ds every year since it launced, right?
I'll wait until next year when they release a better n3ds and I might then consider still not getting a new one.
nah it isn't too bad. you can test it out on the main menu of the 3DS to see what it's capable of,, it's pretty accurate but probably wouldn't fit in a fast-paced game that needs immediate camera movement
hardware revision, but ya. Even better, the revision launched almost five months ago, and it's one exclusive only just got it's release date like a month ago.
>you'll be getting the best exclusive of all: disappointment
HRRRRGH THAT MONHUN EDITION
I'm so fuggin jelly no lie
So your getting the better graphics, faster load times, better internet, exclusive game(s) and better 3D too! All on your old ugly model? Oh cool yours can have faceplates too? All for $20??
No thought not.
Sorry homie, sold all of them already.
I plan to use all the profits to buy every Lucina, Ness, and Robin that I come across
Mario Kart 7 has zero issues with lag. You will see no difference with n3ds. The rest of those games also are not internet intensive
Can't speak on monhun since I don't play it, but I highly doubt it.
Monster Hunter and Sm4sh. That's it, and one has a wiiu version with better graphics and gamecube controller support with faster internet than the n3ds.
I got a 2DS with mario kart DS and new super mario bros.
Suggestions for a thrid game?
>Konami Digital Entertainment DS game
>He hasn't upgraded to Alex Rider: Stormbreaker yet
GBA emulation on DSTWO is actually pretty lackluster, I don't even think it was worth it...
>tfw don't have to worry about upgrading to N3DS
Lag isn't too bad on monster hunter. But in my experience it's either:
> no noticeable lag
> you or someone else disconnects
And I highly doubt everyone has good internet. Now, if only the servers ran better
>tfw my 3ds is basically a Nintendo/atlus machine with the occasional square or capcom game
>faster load times
this is true, but they're not $200 faster.
unnecessary. no one complained about how long it took to download games ever before the n3ds came out. Maybe if you play Sm4sh all the time on your 3ds but if you're willing to drop $200 on that, why not just get a WiiU instead.
lol xenoblade is an exclusive now?
Personally I had no issue with 3d because I didn't shake my 3ds like a fucking idiot while I play.
>old ugly model/faceplates
Enjoy your fingerprints. I'll enjoy my trusty ALBW 3dsxl.
If it makes you feel any better, I spent some of it to pick up a bottle of scotch and import a standard sized N3DS.
Which I will crack with my Gateway 3DS because fuck you Nintendo
they don't look better at all.
I think some games have faster FPS though. I play rayman 3D (one of the shittiest ports of all time) on the N3DSXL and it wasn't laggy like it used to be on the original
Why wouldn't you buy digital for a mobile device? And even if you buy physical, why wouldn't you leave it in the original case?
I only buy physical for games that I know will occupy my 3ds for a long time.
Called a few days ago to recover my games which were MH3U and Luigis Mansion 2
>Eh we can't fand your account
>But I can log in right now
>Strange but we can't do anything if we can't find your account, Sorry
Never again. That I even have to call them is fucking retarded.
Nintendo digital is a true piece of shit.
Holy shit this much mad all because his fisher price gold 3DS is old and redundant.
Enjoy your lack of features son.
>I'm so mad I have to justify my purchase and force my opinion on people that have the new 3DS
Will get the new one once there's a restock ;_;
>Strange but we can't do anything if we can't find your account, Sorry
Then call again and don't speak to a retard? If it's on your account (NID) then there is no problem
Try again and make sure they spelt your account name right.. Accounts don't just vanish Anon
and some digital stuff as a test with mico sd card mangement which is a nice thing.
I had to make 2 calls and they asked me to check through my e-mails.
It took 30 minutes until I finally gave up with the last call.
Believe what you want. I'm still salty.
They even said that they can see it activated on the Club Nintendo Account but not on my Nintendo Digital? account.
Do you think I'm honestly that retarded?
It's Euro Nintendo though, I'm not sure if they are different from the US.
Oh and Crimson Shroud was on that account too. Not a great loss since it was cheap.
I think it depends on how much you use it. I went from XL to NXL and didn't look back. I'm also not in debt so spending a couple hundred in entertainment that will last a few year isn't very extravagant.
I can't believe people are defending buying a slightly updated console. I just can't. You would think one console would last one console life cycle. Jesus fuck, Nintendo fans. You're as bad as 360 owners, only you do it willingly.
>Do you think I'm honestly that retarded
Yes. You or the person you spoke with. Like I said if you have a nintendo account and can fucking log on... Then it's on the system. One of you fucked up so which is it?
And I never stated graphic improvements, I'm calling bullshit on performance improvements. People just seem to be seeping into the post purchase rationalization where the New 3DS has only been seen as effective on Monster Hunter thus far.
before this thread is shitposted to oblivion. Give me a detailed review of how the new3ds nipple stick works and how it helps the gameplay of MH4U.
Im dying to play it but after playing ppsspp so much im afraid to waste money on shit controls.
And that's exactly why it's shit. Once I saw one in person it finally pushed me into a decision. The red is a nice deep wine red with a candy apple red outer shell. Now the original red 3DS XL? That was some Fisher Price shit. Absolutely hated the launch colors so I wound up never picking one up. Stuck with my launch 3DS until the circle pad broke and the A button started dying on me.
performance is definitely faster. the old 3DS was pretty shitty at processing and I'm sure the new one is too, but it's definitely better.
if you try it on smash you can definitely see it. that game actually plays normally on the N3DS when on the old ones it had to go into a fucking memory save mode.
There is, I have it.
It still isn't all that great though.
I guess it can run most games at 30fps / frameskip 1, but since nearly all GBA games are 2D and meant to be played at a steady 60fps its not all that great.
It really depends on what you wanna play though.
I mean Aria of Sorrow runs perfect aside from bosses so far, and Pokemon Pinball runs almost perfect all the time too.
Don't know. Thats what the guy said on the phone.
We can see it on your CN account but can't Find your Nintendo ID.
I don't remember if it auto registered with the digitasl purchase or not since I got some stars for it.
Takes a couple dozen hours to brake in. But once it's been warmed up a bit, it's fairly good for camera control.
Although personally, I prefer using the Dpad when I'm playing monster hunter 4
Look an actual good argument. Good for you.
baby 3ds did disappoint with its battery life, my XL keeps a charge throughout the day at work for me. How much extra life are you getting with the n3ds?
Well, i know i will easily brake 500+ hours playing MH on the thing so it will still be a better price/enjoyment ratio then any game currently.
Well, that kinda settles that, see you out in the hunting grounds
This thread screamed butthurt after I posted it. Not even the vitas posted in the thread derailed it.
I just don't see the value in upgrading to n3ds if you've already got an XL. Especially if you already own a CPP on top of it. All the new features are nice, but there's nothing to take advantage of them
MM case shipped today finally. I had more FF games but I made the mistake of lending them to someone who fucked me over.
>there's nothing to take advantage of them
Nice Opinion. Well Anecdote'd.
Surprised I don't see more Circle Pad Pros.
Ok that's cool. Tho why did you feel the need to freak out and call out everyone that had a N3DS. Just made you look like a jealous child.
Kinda like my toy is better than your toy.
that's really annoying that people fuck others over and then keep their stuff. like have some decency. if i had a nasty breakup or something i would at least return all of her shit.
>I made the mistake of lending them to someone who fucked me over.
Sure is, I rotate between CB, IG, GS and HH. Say what you will but god damn it's fun to blow shit up with CB.
Yeah, same here. Worst part is the fucker sold it and it would be stupid to press charges over a few games but yeah, people suck. I don't lend shit to anyone anymore.
Can't prove a negative anon.
Sm4sh has the WiiU version.
Xenoblade has the Wii version.
MonHun well... I don't play that series so I'll give that to you.
Oh I got one for you, the eshop! It loads faster now and you download quicker so you gave nintendo $200 so you could go to the eshop and give them more money except it's faster* now!
You've locked yourself into the idea that the control scheme is the only advantage that the n3ds provides. I bought it for the improved screen quality, eye tracking, and battery life. Also, the physical buttons are a little stiffer and clicker than on the older models.
no pics of my 3DS but i like to use this to play pokemon on since it feels more like a gameboy.
>I am bad with money so you must be poor and jealous
You know who's also bad with money, easily offended on the internet, and thinks insults are a proper counter-argument?
Enjoy your fisher price cheap gold Zelda 3DS and massive "look at me mom" Cpp addon.
>my addon is better than your new console!!
How poor is your mum? She can't even buy you the new nintendo lol
Most gamestops should have a demo unit of the n3ds out to use.
2ds is kinda comfy, but I prefer the clamshell designs the other ones have
I played the demo of mh4 on the 2ds, it felt ok to control
Started over in Rune Factory since I forgot what I was doing the last time I played it.
>Requires batteries, blocks access to stylus and adds 1 kilogram to overall weight
>But it's comfy!
Why did I listen to /v/?
I liked the KORG DS-10+ on the DSi, and I also like the KORG DSN-12 on the 3DS. Is is the superior mobile KORG synth if you're into that sort of thing.
The KORG M01D is passable, but not really all that great. Ehh. Definitely prefer the DSN-12 and DS-10+.
>Have regular 3DS and Circle Pad Pro.
>Keep lusting after New 3DS XL.
>Feel like the second analog would be a downgrade from the CPP.
>Have the world's tiniest hands so holding might be uncomfortable.
>Need to save money for being NEET after college.
>Still want it.
Sorry for blog, I just wish someone would snap me out of this.
Not him, but you think people can just get a job right after they get out of college?
I finish college in a few months and have uncertain job prospects. The idea of struggling for money while having an unnecessary upgrade makes me feel uncomfortable.
>TFW rejected from dream job yesterday.
I don't work now, but I did a year's internship and they turned me down for a job yesterday.
Do an unpaid internship they said.
It'll get your foot in the door they said.
I don't recall hype threads for the ps3 slim. or wii mini. or xbox 360 elite. or anything else.
I didn't see anyone call someone else poor or jealous because they had the older version of the exact same fucking game system and refused to 'upgrade'
