Noticeable lack of good original games; too many remakes.

I got mine on launch day, pre-ordered too (no hunting around for two months, not this time!). I ended up purchasing Lego Star Wars III and nothing else for the time being, since the games I want the most are only a few weeks or months away. I'm a bit surprised that the eShop isn't running yet, as I expected it at launch, but I suppose it'll come along soon enough.

I'm still working on always keeping my head within the handheld's "sweet spot" for the 3D, but I'm getting there. It turns out that I tend to hold my DS ever so slightly at an angle! One thing's clear, though: the output is 3D, and it does work. It's not as stunning as a large movie display, but I like the added depth it offers: it doesn't fully jump into your face, which makes it look more realistic instead of distracting.

Fun thing: I took a 3D picture on the 3DS, removed the SD card, crammed it into my PC, opened the picture file... 'lo and behold, my 3D-enabled PC display rendered the photo properly! I'm surprised to see that the file format is standard enough to work across devices! :D

I haven't played much of the game itself yet, so I'll hold my comments for now. I'll only say this: load times on a cartridge game? Seriously?

I'll try the AR and head shooting... game... thing in a day or two.

Anyone have problems with it at all? Mine froze up yesterday while playing the grafitti AR game, but past that it's been fine.

That was still enough of a sign to freak me out into thinking I got one of those "Black screen of death" systems.

I probably won't be getting this system until more games get released for it.

I look forward to the new Super Mario game that was announced, the new Paper Mario game, both Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D and Revelations, and of course, Mega Man Legends 3.

Certainly, the system has a very promising library of games that merit a console purchase.

It's only a matter of time for me. :)

One thing I dislike: the annoying, fake camera sound that is heard whenever you take a picture. No matter if you mute the system or plug in headphones, the clicking always happens. Nintendo, I'm not trying to capture 3D panty shots with my handheld, I want to take photos of the urban scenery where perspective effects will show what that screen can do. Please allow me to do so without bothering the people around me.

The head shooting game is...interesting.

I scanned in a picture of Spock, and the results were interesting.

With the AR cards, Samus ended up battling my cat.

Great system, and the fishing is very relaxing.

On another note, that clicking noise IS annoying,although I did laugh at the "jokes" about it seen above.

Obviously, but if I wanted to do that, I could just grab my regular digital camera: it's smaller, faster to use, and I can mute all noise including when taking pictures. Granted, the result wouldn't be in 3D, but I'd have a much better resolution in return! Should we really inflict the noise on everyone for a situation that is far from being a widespread society problem?

I like the idea of it, Im sure its a real hit, but im going to wait and see if they make a better 3DS. One thats bigger. I just want my screens to match in size. it just bothers me. I wait eagerly for next DS.

My friend's been playing SSFIV 3DS and it's making me all sorts of jealous. I want portable Street Fighter nooooooow.

Really though, I'm going to try to hold off till MML3 or Christmas, whichever comes first. It's no secret that the launch line-up's pretty slim, so I don't think I'll miss that much in the mean time.

As a side note, the DSi and 3DS can use WPA encrypted wi-fi connections, so that's another attractive reason to get it for me. Everything's WPA encrypted and I have a DS lite. T_T

True, and you have to make sure that the games can support that type of connection also. Like with Heart Gold/Soul Silver & now Pokemon Black/White. The DSi and 3DS systems themselves can handle it but as I saw Heart Gold/Soul Silver in the pokemon series along with any older ones CANNOT access WPA while Pokemon Black and White can.

I'm holding off until the price drops. I'll buy the games I want when they come out (Professor Layton, Megaman Legends 3, etc) so it'll look good on their sales record.

Meanwhile, I think I'll buy a new PS3 with that $300. I don't feel comfortable paying $300 for a handheld. (This is coming from a person who can't imagine paying more than $20 for a cellphone...)

Good point. I changed my entire network setup last summer, and everything is now encrypted with WPA. I wanted to use my DS online a few times, but gave up once I realized that I'd need to create holes in my secure setup just for the sake of using the DS. Thankfully, with a firmware-upgradable 3DS, Nintendo should be able to add support for new security models if something new becomes popular.

Apparently I have a lot to learn about the 3DS before I go out and buy one. I guess with Legends 3 on delay I'll have plenty of time to research. Right now I've also got my eye on Paper Mario 3D and (as always) Mario Kart. And I will probably try hard not to get Animal Crossing, but fail.

Some time has passed, and I want to say this: bring on the fun games already! As soon as the Nintendo eShop opens, which can't be too soon, we'll get access to the entire library of DSi downloadable titles. That alone will be enough to keep me busy for a while.

I'm having a lot of silly fun with Mii StreetPass. It's great to see the green notification light being lit, I then go to the Mii application and the game goes "you've met X, it's your third time; here's Y, this is your first meeting", and so on. It's nice to see a local wireless program for the 3DS that is actually usable, compared to the DS's must-be-stuck-in-this-game-and-mode way of doing things.

Face Raiders is hilarious! The game does a pretty good job at capturing faces and creating expressions with them, and the game itself is fun too. I've added a few family members and friends in it's database, and it's funny to see them come up randomly in a round winking, laughing and frowning! I'm hoping that Nintendo will eventually release other games such as these. They're simple, are a nice way to showcase the system, and they're fun.

It's a shame that the battery doesn't last longer. I have to make sure that I recharge my 3DS once every 2-3 days of casual use, else I end up with a dead system. I'll probably start shutting down the wireless communication whenever I'm not in a public area in order to make it last longer.

...I kinda hope Capcom releases a MMBN6 remake in 3d...

with better music, graphics,enhanced battle style,and maybe both beasts in 1 game...
"Edit"

Although everyone knows that's never going to happen.

I'd beee fine with a nice F-Zero game, preferably not a remake (I spent over...a long time on GX, unlocked every course and character without an AX machine

The 3DS shop is coming! IGN story and press release!

In short, we're getting:

  • Excitebike (NES 3D-augmented version)
  • Super Mario Land
  • Alley Way
  • Radar Mission
  • PokÚdex 3D
  • Most of the DSiWare line-up

The IGN story sounds positive in terms of improvements to the way the store will work compared to the Wii and DSi versions. No more Itchy & Scratchy Money-type points either, everything is valued in dollars. Of course, games will cost X.99$ while the cards sold in-store will be 20$. Stupid price non-rounding...

Excitebike will be free for the first month, so be sure to grab it early if you already have the 3DS! On my end, I'm getting at least that and Shantae (DSiWare).
